It's Friday . . . No Surprise for Me

The hands on my Autavia confirm that it's Friday, here on the eastern side of the US of A, and it's no surprise that I am wearing this one today.

The basics as follows:

  • Autavia Reference 1163 MH
  • serial number 141241
  • Purchased in a store in Geneva, July 1969
  • Notice the white chronograph second hand and heavy red accents on the dial (as on the Chronomatics)
  • Appears to be the same execution as the sample used in early advertising for Heuer's first automatic chronographs.
Thanks for the fantastic reception that this one has received. Story to be told, sometime reasonably soon.

Wishing everyone a great weekend.
