The 2017 Tag Heuer Autavia is definitely one of our favourite watches currently. With a voting system for the selection of the final design, the mix of vintage and modern class in this watch is really (in our opinions) on point.
The Autavia is definitely one of favourite watches of 2017 and dare we say, it is our favourite Tag Heuer at the moment.
The Autavia has a 42mm case diameter & a thickness of 15.6mm, which is a little on the bigger and thicker side. Put together with a aluminium bidirectional turning bezel, Tag Heuer absolutely nailed it this time. The movement is an in-house chronograph movement, Calibre Heuer 02. The see through back plate allow us to examine the Calibre Heuer 02 and it offers a the touch of modernity in a classic remake. And did we mention, the remarkable Heuer 02 has a power reserve of 80 hours.
The placement of the date at the 6pm looks fine and the all time Autavia Heuer logo at the top looks killer as always. The Autavia comes in 2 different straps - an aged & distressed leather strap, and a ‘Grains of Rice’ bracelet. Both complementing the Autavia in its own manner.
