Big and chunky Montreal




This is my Heuer Montreal Ref 110.503 W (White). It's probably Heuers biggest watch. It's thick and heavy, and I love it. The white Montreal is the rarest one and is quite popular among collectors.



The Montreal was available in seven versions powered by the Caliber 12 movement:

- stainless steel, blue dial with white registers (applied markers);
- stainless steel, black dial with white registers (applied markers);
- stainless steel, white dial with black registers (applied markers);
- gold-plated case with champagne dial and registers (applied markers);
- stainless steel, blue dial with blue registers (painted markers);
- stainless steel, black dial with black registers (painted markers); and
- black (PVD) case with black dial and black registers (painted markers)



I was lucky to find a NOS two piece NSA bracelet with a Heuer signed buckle.
