Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
We saw Hodinkee take the 39 millimeter "glassbox" Carrera, and make it hugely successful, with the name Skipper on the dial.
It would have been interesting to have seen the same exercise with this Autavia . . . also with the name "Skipper" on the dial, of course.
As created, we see people playing with the colors, but not reflecting any real engagement with the history of the brand.
Oh well . . . let them sell a few watches and then move on to the next one.
I'll stick with the "yawn" theme.
: If only they took it a bit further down the Skipper route....
