Autavia Serial 52773 originally sold by USA dealer with…

originally a repainted dial with modern green lume on dial & hands, replaced with original now. This watch has done the rounds and is very well noted now!

Result reflected this and indeed case in poor shape originally with religious engraving on the back case.

: Regarding the "Big Subs" Autavia, Reference 2446,
: second execution hands -- a friend who inspected the watch in
: Geneva told me that the relume on the dial and hands was pretty
: sloppy.

: Seem to me that it is generally OK for the hands to be relumed, but
: when the dial is relumed in a poor manner, the value of the
: watch is greatly diminished.

: Does anyone know how the Autavia with the Orange test dial
: performed? The Autavia Ref 7763 SN with the test dial did well
: at $27,750 (final price).

: Strange that it takes Antiquorum so long to post results . . . not
: exactly the transparency that we should expect in 2021!!
