TAG Heuer Unveils Special-Edition Autavia in Time for Jack Heuer’s Birthday which is vintage beautiful. Jack Heuer’s 85th birthday is November 17th, and in celebration, TAG Heuer created 1,932 (signifying the year of his birth) Autavia chronographs ($5,900) which will hit stores on his birthday. Serial #001 will be auctioned off alongside 41 vintage Heuer chronographs from the ’60s and ’70s on November 11th as part of the Heuer Parade auction being held by Phillips in Geneva.
The Autavia’s design is a 42mm in diameter with Heuer-02 self-winding caliber, a column-wheel chronograph mechanism, a date indication at 6 o’clock. It is a blend of the reference 2446 Autavia “Rindt” in case design and subdial layout, combined with the later reference 1163T Autavia “Siffert” in its black-on-gray panda-dial coloration with a power reserve of 80 hours.
Beautiful watch! Happy Birthday Jack!
