Tag Heuer Autavia Mechanical Automatic Watch

Tag Heuer Autavia Mechanical Automatic Watch
Inspired by the original Autavia wristwatches and dashboard timers of the 1960s, that was used in racing cars and aircraft, the new Autavia collection bring together functional, versatile style and cutting-edge technology.

Each Autavia watch is equipped with TAG Heuer’s proprietary carbon-composite hairspring, “Isograph”. The name Autavia comes from the combination of automobile and aviation. Every new TAG Heuer Autavia has a propeller and tire etched into the caseback in commemoration of this. The bevelled lugs and the name echo those of the original, but the watch contains a state-of-the-art movement, with an isograph carbon-composite hairspring, and a tough, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel. The brown leather strap is interchangeable, with a stainless steel bracelet option available.
