Hands-On: An Exclusive First Look At The 2017 Heuer Autavia

Talking Watches: With Ahmed Rahman

The 2017 Autavia certainly has that vintage look, down to the subtleties on the dial.

Let’s be straightforward: The Swiss watch industry isn’t the most fair of establishments. Be that as it may, in an unexpected turn, TAG Heuer chose this spring to let gatherers and fans vote on which vintage Autavia should fill in as the motivation for the following year’s blockbuster discharge. Eventually, fans decided on the ref. 2446 Mark 3, thus here we are. Simply taking a gander at the watch, it’s promptly certain that TAG has truly focused on the subtleties to make the new Autavia an energizing reevaluation of the original.

The model is 42mm across and 15.6mm thick, so it’s a beautiful enormous watch – much greater by and large than the 40mm 1960s unique. The hands, records, and dial printing (down to the Heuer-just signature) unquestionably review the previous watch, however there is the expansion of a date showed at 6 o’clock. Clearly, the dial would look a lot of cleaner without this interruption (and it would be more devoted to the first), however doubtlessly that TAG Heuer will make some simpler memories selling the watch with the incorporation of the date. FYI – the date wheel here is still sideways as this is a model and not a last creation watch. 

Inside is the Heuer H-03 development, which TAG Heuer is saying will be presented in this watch. It’s a programmed three-register chronograph type dependent on the CH80 development (which you may recall from 2014 preceding the task was murdered). It’ll be cool to perceive how this in-house chronograph was adjusted to make the H-03 and we’ll be giving close consideration to the specialized subtleties as they’re revealed.

This new Autavia will dispatch at Baselworld 2017 and estimating has not yet been reported, however we’re informed that it will be in accordance with other vintage recognition models, like the Monza and Carrera.

You can see exactly how large the Autavia wears on the wrist here.

We’ll clearly have more photographs and information for you as we can, and in the not so distant future we’ll present to you a full recap of the Heuer Collectors Summit directly from Switzerland.
