The 2017 model, which reflects the motor racing spirit of this era and the world of timekeeping, with its simple yet effective lines, is the result of the Autavia Cup, organised last year by TAG Heuer. Collectors and fans were asked to choose their favourite model from a shortlist of 16 Autavia watches which had been released in the past, and to vote online.
It is a Heuer 02 automatic manufacture chronograph, equipped with all the functions today’s clientèle would expect to find. Firstly, the three white, snailed Chronograph counters have been spaced further apart to give an opaline dial that is more harmonious, and easier to read. A date window has been positioned at 6 o’clock. Another new feature is that it has been made water-resistant (to 100 metres) and its original diameter of 39 mm has been expanded to 42 mm to give it a more contemporary, elegant look. The assembly is completed by a black aluminium bezel, which is notched and bidirectional, and a vintage brown calfskin leather strap with ecru top-stitching. The length of the minute track lines respect the golden ratio of 1/3-2/3, as applied by Jack Heuer to the early pieces.
