Phillips 2018 November -- IDF Autavia (Lot 15)

Here is the image, from the Phillips online catalog, for further analysis and discussion.



: The only one I know something about is the IDF Autavia and alas
: only because I lusted for one for years without ever managing to
: bag one- and of course now they are out of hand for my wallet.
: Apart from the description stating that it is powered by a
: “manual” cal.12 (!), I am a bit confused by the dial.
: All these late Autavias - the coloured ones, the 11063VNT and the
: 11063V MH that shares the dial with the IDF have these very
: thick font for the Autavia script, quite different from all
: other versions apart from a few 11630 and one of the earliest
: GMTs.
: Yet this seems to have quite thin a font - any ideas? Bad picture?
: Service dial because the original one got damaged in action?
: Cheers,
: Fabrizio
