When you think of Daytona you immediately think of Rolex. This was not always the case especially in the late 70s when Heuer did some rebranding and got away (at Rolex's approvale) with the name. It was primarily targeted at their US market for obvious reasons.
There were two variants of these dials, one blue dial and one fume and then there was this colour which i believe has aged from blue, like some other blue materials used had a unique defect which turned them to a tropical gold dust colouring. No two watches are the same. This example shown here has aged equisitely. Showing deep brown, gold and darl blue colourings at the turn of the wrist.
It has strong case with original finish as these cases were all meant to be smooth and without sharp edges, and original pushers and signed Heuer crown.
The stainless steel bracelet is also original and really comfortable to wear daily.
The caliber 12 automatic is beating beautifully and running well.
Here's you chance to own a unique Heuer at a good price level, for now.
