Issued to the Kenyan Air Force in the 1970s, this rare edition of the famous 11630 Autavia reference is a widely revered collectors item in the Heuer community. The earlier Heuer Autavia Ref. 73663 deployed to the Kenyan Air Force incorporated distinct Arabic numerals and a manual wind movement. This particular model, powered by an automatic movement, incorporates the later design of the 11630 Autavia with subtly contrasting matte grey sub-dials positioned against a luscious black dial. Importantly the typical KAF case inscription on this watch’s case back reads ‘KAF 417’.
Measuring at a standard 42mm this 11630 reference commands a noticeable presence on the wrist- accentuated further by its thickness. This particular model remains in great condition considering its history as a professionally worn military timepiece. All components are original and the case remains unpolished, making this stunning military Autavia all the more collectable.
