Introducing: The 2017 TAG Heuer Autavia
The 2017 TAG Heuer Autavia.
A few months prior, we were welcome to see the main model of this watch , yet today is the day we at last consider it to be it will really be sold. Not a ton has changed from that point forward, but rather enough that it merits checking on all the basics.
The 2017 Autavia will be introduced in a 42mm treated steel case, which is somewhat more forcing than the first reference, which estimated 39mm. It’s additionally going to be much thicker, so while it looks exceptionally devoted to the first watch, it doesn’t exactly wear like one. Specifically, the 12-hour bezel is wide and striking, making the watch look rather large. This isn’t really something awful, yet certainly something to know of.
The new Autavia will be accessible on a matured cowhide strap and has an opposite panda dial.
The dial is by and large the thing was appeared during the last phase of prototyping. What’s more, that is totally fine. It’s an exemplary opposite panda dial, with a profound dark ground and white sub-registers. Those sub-registers are a 30-minute counter at three o’clock, a 12-hour counter at nine o’clock, and a runnings seconds counter (with a date window wrapped up) down at six o’clock. Probably the best thing? The old fashioned Heuer and Autavia logos at 12 o’clock. Just awesome.
On a dots of-rice arm band the watch looks much more period.

For the individuals who have been following the lethargic divulging of the new Autavia, there is a little amazement at the back. You’ll see the development is known as the Caliber Heuer 02 (replacing the Valjoux 72 in the first model). We were expecting a self-twisting development with a 80-hour power hold called the Caliber Heuer 03 to be glancing back at us from behind the sapphire window – it really is that development we’re getting, just under another name.

Should the new Autavia have come in a more modest case? Most likely. Could it have managed without the date at six o’clock? Sure. In any case, those decisions TAG Heuer made with the commercial side of its cerebrum more than anything, and you can’t censure them for that. Something else, the brand has truly worked really hard with this one. The Autavia is a solid new delivery from TAG Heuer, and the thoughtful we’d love to see more of.
Down to the outdated logo, TAG Heuer has made a decent showing with this one.
The 2017 Autavia will be offered on a calfskin strap from €4,600 (roughly $4,965 at season of distributing) with the alternative of paying a little premium for the watch on a dabs of-rice wristband. We’ll refresh this story when evaluating data on the arm band becomes available.
