1963 Avia 9k gold watch with papers

This 9k hallmarked gold Avia watch has the handwinding calendar 17 jewel FHF 73-4N movement, with centre seconds hand.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

From the Leopards head and letter h, which is a London hallmark, on the case back and the original paperwork marked 1963/64 we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1963.

CONDITION

The watch is running strongly, and is a very good price for a solid gold watch with the original paperwork.  The downside is the area of dial damage near the centre, which is clearly shown in the photos and video.  It will not put everyone off, as it is not very bad, but we like to be clear on our descriptions.  We have polished the acrylic crystal and fitted a new leather strap.  The movement is working well, and as the photo shows has nicely finished beveled plates.  The watch would be supplied with a certificate of authenticity.
