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.

This review is for potential customers. I've bought numerous watches from them over the years, most recent one being this month. I've been totally happy each time. So if you're apprehensive about a significant or first purchase from them, there is no need to be. Each purchase was made quick, easy and hassle free for me. My emails had swift responses and any questions I asked were happily answered. Each time I've met/contacted Dee/Tim/John they've all been friendly and easy going yet efficient and professional. The watches I've purchased were as described and fairly priced for the market. All my purchases were done in person -as their location was convenient (nice office too), but as everything on collection matched the online description/photos then I'd be happy purchasing online if location became an issue for me. Even after purchase, aftercare has been great. I'd absolutely purchase from them again. Whilst I've not sold any watches through them, they would be the first I'd consider if I came to selling, based on my purchase experience. Writing this has made me realise that they have provided consistently the best customer service that I've encountered in any sector in the past 10 years. They give you the high grade service that is, in my opinion, deserved when making high value purchases; sadly I've encountered many companies failing to do this with other types of valuable purchases. There's never been any hiccups on their end, but I'm confident that if there ever was one then it'd be promptly and satisfactorily resolved. Overall, simply a nice bunch of people. I hope this review proves to be useful. AC
