1962 – 2022 Heuer Autavia celebrates his 60ties

In 1962 Heuer launched the first chronograph model line to be given a name. AUTAVIA (named after the timepieces created for AUTomobil and AVIAtion). Until then, there were wristwatches and chronographs that only had the Heuer logo printed on the dial. The beginning of a success story. The Autavia was worn with pleasure and frequently by famous racing drivers of the time such as Derek Bell, Mario Andretti, Jo Siffert, Jochen Rindt and many more. Despite the different designs, the many faces of the Heuer Autavia from 1962 to 1980 have a rotating bezel as a prominent feature.

In the later TAG Heuer years there were always new editions of the successful AUTAVIA series in limited numbers.
