    The Swiss Watch Co UK Ltd proudly presents this stunning Heuer Autavia ‘Viceroy’ for sale.

    Taking its name from a combination of its target markets (“AUTomotive- AVIAtion”), the Autavia wristwatch was unveiled in 1962 and was the first new model launched under the guidance of the company’s then-new CEO, Jack Heuer. It was produced alongside the popular Carrera yet managed to stay in production until the end of the Heuer brand in 1985.

    From May through December 1972, Heuer produced a series of Autavia chronographs that were offered by the Brown & Willaimson Tobacco Company as a promotion for Viceroy cigarettes. Customers could send proof of purchase for a carton of Viceroy cigarettes (10 packs) and receive an Autavia chronograph (Reference 1163) for $88. At the time, these "Viceroy" Autavias were being offered, Heuer dealers were offering comparable automatic Autavias (black dial with white registers) for a list price of $200.

    This particular example is the Autavia ref. 1163V and is set in an unpolished 42mm steel case with the black tachymeter bezel (no luminous dot in the triangle) that is bi-rotational. The dial is black and has printed minute/split-second markers around the outside for precision timing, as indicated by the bold red hand, as well as the 2 white contrasting sub-dials for measuring up to 30 minutes and up to 12 hours. Fitted with domed acrylic plexiglass and powered by the Heuer calibre 11 automatic chronograph (a world first at the time) mechanism the watch comes on a new black ‘racing’ leather strap with a steel Heuer pin buckle.

    Produced sometime in 1972 the watch is in fine, unpolished collectors condition considering its age.

    Excellent service and fast delivery! First time I have shopped with these guys and the experience was great, with Dee being especially helpful. Watch was competitively priced compared to other sellers, and once ordered it was sized and delivered within 48 hours. Couldn't ask for much more and will definitely be a repeat customer.
