Heuer Autavia Vintage Viceroy Automatic Chronograph Date, Ref. 1163V.
Excellent condition, no box or papers.
Heuer produced a series of Autavia chronographs that were offered by the Brown & Willaimson Tobacco Company as a promotion for Viceroy cigarettes. Customers could send proofs of purchase for a carton of Viceroy cigarettes (10 packs) and receive an Autavia chronograph (Reference 1163) at a discounted price of $88. For below the retail of a similar Heuer Autavia model watch, Heuer could barely keep up with the production to fill orders for that successful promotion!
