    The caseback certainly looks very well-preserved.

    Is this perhaps a green version..?

    Fascinating, I have not seen that coding on a caseback of one of these before.

    510.501 - yes (black)
    510.502 - yes (green)

    even 510.501/12 (have a guess)

    But 510.501-2 I have not seen (especially with the 2 so lightly engraved)

    I guess this goes even further to demonstrate that this range was produced in times of dire need at Heuer when all parts in the bin were called upon to complete watches, and re-naming casebacks from one model for another was perfectly normal.
    What a lovely example.

    Well found

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested

    Good stuff JL, (Jean-Luc?) I saw you pick that up from MWR, a good choice as they don't come up too often, and interesting to see the caseback too - as Dave mentions, obviously a chaotic time with the varieties of dial combinations, script and case back markings. Yours looks very fresh indeed.

    Well done anyway, I don't wear mine (510.501) too often but it has a definite character.

    Great watch, and an interesting caseback with a reference I had never seen before. It looks as if Heuer "reassigned" a part originally made for a black 510.501 and simply added a "2" to show that the watch was in fact a 510.502, and this would actually be consistent with the state of complete mess the brand was in at the time this chronograph was made.

    Now, it would be nice to get confirmation that this is a calibre 5100 inside (likely) or a calibre 5012 (much less likely, but possible).

    Good catch in any case. Congratulations!

    Hello & thanks for your comments ,

    the watch came with its original box + booklet and the Lemania inside seems to be the 5100.
