This item has now sold

A Superb Heuer Autavia 2446C GMT Mark II in Fantastic Vintage Condition, A rare Opportunity To Buy A sought-After Watch That is Becoming Rarer By The Year! 

In 1933, Heuer introduced the “Autavia”, a name that would continue in its catalogue for decades. The Autavia 12-hour stopwatch was a dashboard timer to meet the toughest AUTomotive and AVIAtion requirements. The Autavia was used as a single timer or it could be paired on a back plate with the Hervue 8-day clock.

The Autavia we know and love was reintroduced in 1962 as a wristwatch instead of the cockpit clock of the 1930s. Over its 20-plus year lifespan, over 200 executions of the Heuer Autavia were produced. The GMT was introduced in 1967.  During the ‘60s and ‘70s, the Heuer Autavia was embraced by the racing community. Jo Siffert, the driver who inspired Steve McQueen’s character in Le Mans, wore an Autavia.

What’s On Offer

What a beauty! Heuer Carrera and the Heuer Monaco have overshadowed this iconic watch over the years but this vintage Autavia absolutely deserves its own accolades and as such has become a very sought-after watch. A beautiful example of the 2446c 2nd execution GMT in fantastic shape, well preserved with a superb dial incorporating three counters, block hour markers and the extra hand on the dial and a two-colour 24-hour ‘Pepsi’ bezel from which users are able to easily tell a second timezone while travelling - the GMT function. The substantial proportions of this watch give a muscular presence on the wrist and its punches of sporting red with the black and blue combination, make for a head-turning piece that will spark envy in both watch collecting and racing enthusiasts. We know that both Heuer and TAG Heuer are enjoying somewhat of a renaissance at the minute so we predict that prices will creep up - now is the time to buy!
