Very cool, big, historical watch in pristine condition. Working (as you can see in the video and screenshots showing different dates and 10 hours on the hour-counter and hands in different positions). Only mechanical issue is that the orange sweep-second hand seems a bit loose, so when you reset the choro it slips past "12" and parks either few degrees left or right of center (see video). You'll need to have a watchmaker open the watch and press it down so it sits tighter on the pivot. The most unique feature is the super rare Buren Cal 12, used by iconic Heuer watches like Autavia and Monte Carlo in the 60s/70s.
Almost impossible to get this movement in such a pristine condition. The serial number on the case suggests manufacture by Heuer.
