Re: "Sun" buckle
In Response To: "Sun" buckle ()

: I bought my Autavia 73663 in 1982 and has exactly the same buckle
: (especially back side). It is 16 mm wide and assemble to the
: original Corfam strap. The watch had been at the dealer for some
: time so I guess it has been produced end of the 70ties.

That ties in with the seller's comments, albeit he reckoned late sixties into the seventies and specifically mentioned the Autavia, Monaco and Camaro lines. But I see so many early sixties Carreras sold with Sun buckles. Are they not really period correct, or were these Sun buckles available then ?
