I like that Autavia. Which Model is it?

Why it's the 1163T (3rd execution - correction from earlier post) "Jo Siffert" Autavia...

OnTheDash has a bunch of information on this model, including the overview, the Reference 1163T (Later_Version) gallery, the Autavia Reference Table a segment of which follows...

The two-register example in my pictures is the one referred to in the white row of the table above, the three-register example is referenced by the blue row...

Jeff posted an poignant message in the forum about Siffert and Sue...

and I have posted some screen snaps of Jo Siffert from the movie LeMans... Unfortunatly we can't see his watch, but Lugo Bratte wears one of the "Jo Siffert" models...

I have been looking long for that type of dial and color combination.

Well, you still have some refining to do (which specific model you want), and then there is the hunt! It took me a couple of years, but I finally bagged one, and Jeff did recently too!


Hope this helps!
