Heuer Vintage Autavia GMT

Was 9,495.00
Code: 1824P
Manufacturer Code: 2446C

A charismatic vintage Autavia GMT, full of personality and charm, from the golden age of motor sport inspired wrist watches. Featuring its original iconic “Pepsi” bezel that has gained a charming vintage patina over the years. Vintage Heuer pieces are currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity, less often seen than their Rolex rivals, they are increasingly sought-after by today's collectors. This is due to both low production volumes and the fact that many examples have been poorly restored and replaced with later components. This example on the other hand, has to be admired for its lovely condition.

Heuer introduced its first Autavia Chronograph in 1962. The introduction of the Heuer GMT followed soon after, around 1969, complementing classic Heuer styling with vibrant new colours. The name Autavia itself is a combination of the words Automobile and Aviation, and was the first new model launched under the guidance of the company’s then-new CEO, Jack Heuer.

This Heuer GMT 2446C has a reverse, panda dial and features oversized registers, the hour markers are applied with tritium lume, together with red index markings. What is characteristic to this watch is the steel-edged, mixed luminous and red painted minute and hour hands. Further to this, the Heuer GMT also features a bold “arrow head” GMT hand and coordinating chronograph sweep seconds' hand. The watch retains its original, charming blue and red bezel which gives this model its Pepsi name.

The crown of the watch is correct and bears the standard Heuer signature. Supplied in Fine condition considering its age, this watch is a must-see for fans of vintage Heuer timepieces.

Dear Dee, Please accept my apologies for having taken so long to acknowledge receipt of the Rolex GMT that I found on line and then spoke to you on the telephone from the Isle of Man before purchasing. I received it on Tuesday of last week. Although thrilled I was nervous having spent rather a large amount of money using only pictures and verbal assurance. I waited until the evening when all was done and calm to open the parcel. I was thrilled with what I saw. The watch was running and the time was correct so I inspected it, placed it on my wrist and read through the enclosed paperwork. It was like welcoming an old friend back into the fold. I have worn it every day since receipt and smile every time I check the time or use the bezel. I am so very glad that ‘Island Fever’ got the better of me but more importantly know that I can trust your site and especially your word and guidance. Thank you. I have one or two other watches including a Tudor Pelagos Blue Titanium and had seen some very favourable reviews of the Tudor GMT that had tempted me but I am so very glad that I stuck with what I wanted. When I had my GMT 20+ years ago it was a big watch. It’s a slim-line tonic by todays watches and relatively light. Most importantly to me it is a joy. Very many thanks, Dee and I shall make a point to drop in if/when I get my act together and visit my friend in Chiswick. In the meantime I have to resist your site and continue to enjoy what I have – which is very easy. Very Best Regards, Ian
