We are delighted to offer this superb stainless steel Heuer Autavia reference 3646 manufactured circa 1968.
This model has become one of the most celebrated collectible chronographs of all time alongside the Omega Speedmaster and the Rolex Daytona.
The Autavia, aimed at automotive and aviation enthusiasts, was the first watch Jack Heuer brought to market as the new company CEO in 1962. The watch contains the manually wound Valjoux 92 calibre. This calibre was the only one used in the Autavia series with two sub registers for the chronograph all other calibres had 3 sub dials.
This Big-Eye Autavia reference 3646 is affectionately named as such due to its larger chronograph sub registers, while not only being large on the dial they also contrast in colour to the black making them stand out. The white sub registers have faded and are showing some consistent patina to a rich brown colour. The hour markers are batons with lume plots. There are some variations of dial design throughout the Autavia history, and this variation with no numerals has an overall sharp appearance.
The 12-hour bezel has some fading and marks that has removed some of the black bezel paint and markings, this enhances the overall vintage feel of a well-loved functional watch but not over damaged. The caseback and crown are in excellent condition, with straight bevelled lugs, round pushers and an unsigned crown.
The watch comes on a brown leather strap with a stainless steel pin buckle.
