Heuer did really good here. This is a unique watch, produced and featured on their Olympics catalogue, this was a celebration of being the official timekeeper of the 1980s Olympics (winter games at Lake Placid and Moscow Games).

The oversized, 42mm case is perfect for any bigger guys (or girls). It’s sharp (razor sharp). The dial is also in great condition, intact, but has some features worth digging in: it’s a two-language dial, having ‘quartz’ and ‘professinal’ in english, while having the depth rating (‘200 metres’) in french; the orange color is unique to this watch. This is an earlier version of the watch, due to the painted minute markers and hands in black, and the single outer ring bezel. The tritium is in wonderful condition, with a creamy color and none missing. The bezel is in great condition, too, freely rotating anti-clockwise.

Inside, there’s the ESA 536.121 (Pre-ETA). The case back still has the original plastic sticker.
