Rare and early Heuer Autavia 2446.
This Heuer 2446 has the screw-down case of the first generation. The dial is the second version with the smaller subsidiary dials and Dauphine hands.

This Autavia 2446 is in excellent condition. It still has the plexiglass from the first delivery. The stainless steel case is in excellent original condition with sharp edges.

The vintage look of the watch is undisputed. This is mainly due to the charmingly patinated dial and the original creamy tritium luminous material in the hour markers (dots) and in the Dauphine hands.

The engravings on the case back and the serial number between the lugs are still clearly legible.

The original black leather strap with Heuer signature is hardly worn. The original Heuer pin buckle with the sun logo on the inside was part of the original equipment of the watch from 1966.

If you are looking for a special and rare Heuer in rare original condition, this is definitely the right watch for you. This particular model is ideal as a collector's item and, thanks to the accurate and reliable Valjoux 72 column wheel movement, which was also used in the Rolex Daytona models, is also perfect for daily use on the wrist. The watch has just been serviced and runs extremely accurately with a minimal rate deviation of only 4 seconds per day.
