I´m offering my 1163 Autavia Orange Dial , Cal.11, 28.800 high beat movement, Prototype, for sale. Most likely this is the only piece existing in that realization, so it is a unique item.
Case is stamped 1163
Serial Nr. 274XXX
Watch was bought by a honorable watch boutique in Munich Germany in 2012. I´m a lawyer and collector located in Munich Germany too.
I was wearing the watch twice to make pictures and would rate it NOS, at least it is in excellent condition. Runs perfect also.
Because nobody will know me in this forum probably, before posting this ad I asked a few honourable names in the Autavia, also well known in this forum community for their opinion sending pictures and they all declared the watch original and most probably the only existing model with that dial.
I have to realize the best price due to my divorce, so I will accept offers for the watch for three weeks from now until Thursday 11.12.2014. If there´s an adequate offer before that time, I reserve the right to stop the auction. I have an offer of a very nice, known and treasured member and collector from this forum, who helped a lot in examining the watch, for 7 K Euro. As this is not substantially higher than my purchase price I will keep the watch if there is no higher bid.
Offers under 7K Euro are useless therefore, as are trade offers etc. for the named reason ! I won´t answer to them.
Would really prefer to sell to a collector not a dealer, but money has to decide.
I would prefer personal contact and delivery in Munich, but will ship worldwide of course. Delivery cost added to the final price according to cost. Payment per Paypal as a Gift or plus 4 percent is possible and preferred, bank wire will be gladly accepted too.
Watch is sold head only, strap was only fixed for the pictures.
No returns please.
Unfortuately I didn´t succeed in load more than one picture, so I will provide more pictures via email to serious bidders.
