In 2016 Tiger TAG Heuer launched the “Autavia Cup” event, invited fans of the brand community and collectors to vote from the 16 Autavia antique watches selected in the eyes of the best engraved watches, more than 50,00 people after the vote, Ultimate is the 1966 issue of Autavia 2446 III win, characterized by: 3 eye “reverse panda” dial, 12 hours of rotating bezel, straight ear, straight needle and polished steel with luminous time scale. In 2017, TAG Heuer on the basis of the introduction of the engraved version of Autavia chronograph.
The Tag Heuer Autavia watch is a combination of car and air portmanteau, first released by Jack Heuer in 1962, is the first chronograph with a rotating bezel, which adds more functionality to the functional watch. As with all Haoya chronographs, Autavia’s identity is inseparable from the car world – legendary racing driver Jo Siffert, Mario Andretti and Jochen Rindt are all worn. Has a classic car of the golden age of nostalgic style, in recent years Audavia in the secondary market has been sought after.
The 207 re-release of the Autavia watch, designed based on the 1966 “Rindt” (Ref.2446), the latest Autavia is retro style and modern emotional clever fusion. Visually, the watch is very fit with the original, the most significant change is the size. 60 years of Autavia table diameter is 39 mm (that era is huge), today’s new more large, 42 mm in diameter, 15.6 mm thick.
In addition to this, the dial is still pure old replica Tag Heuer Autavia Heuer style, matte black bottom of the anti-panda style three chronograph layout, black aluminum bezel also has a 12-hour scale, which means You can use a two-way bezel to track the second time zone. Dial text of the most unique, with a prominent “Autavia” words, representing the Autavia series watch the resurrection, brand Logo also replaced the retro “Heuer”, like the 1966 antique watch, 6 o’clock date window Printed above “Heuer 02″, revealing this retro watch has a modern heart.
Table needle and scale seems to be the original style, the table is also a simple baton type, the last century 60’s watches are common, Tag Heuer Autavia replica has chosen retro flavor. BTW, 30 minutes chronograph dial is too sparse, why should omit the prototype of the minute scale, I do not understand, so the timing function is not easy to use.
The new piece has a thick yellow leather strap (model CBE2110.FC8226, which gives the watch a very trendy retro appearance), also choose retro steel chain (model CBE2110.BA0687), the difference between the two or so 150 dollars. I prefer steel, wearing a heavy solid quality in the hand is reassuring.
For the new power is TAG Heuer 02 movement, which may be the most interesting elements of the watch. Heuer-02 is actually a renamed and re-edited version of CH-80, launched in 2013 CH-80 movement, with a column column and vertical clutch mechanism, I do not know why suddenly disappeared, it should be the first application In the production of production watches. Movement looks rugged, vibration frequency, with 80 hours of power reserve.
Today’s old Beaver management under the TAG Heuer replica watches has a dual character, on the one hand is biased towards Hublot bold modern design style, designed to attract young consumers. On the other hand as this Autavia chronograph, is committed to mining a long history of the brand tradition, with a relatively classic and conservative design to meet the traditional collectors, very few brands this operation.
