Au­tavia, the leg­endary driver’s chrono­graph from the 1960s, is mak­ing a come­back in 2017. The 2017 Au­tavia will be pre­sented in a 42mm stain­less steel case, which is a lit­tle more im­pos­ing than the orig­i­nal ref­er­ence, which mea­sures 39mm. As in­no­va­tive as the orig­i­nal was, this con­tem­po­rary model is the re­sult of an in­ter­ac­tive cam­paign called the “Au­tavia Cup” run in 2016. From a choice of 16 vin­tage mod­els, more than 50,000 web users voted for a reis­sue of the Au­tavia rindt worn by the fa­mous F1 driver Jochen rindt. With the old-school Heuer and Au­tavia lo­gos at 12 o’clock, and a new Heuer-02 cal­iber, this iconic model cel­e­brates its 55th an­niver­sary in the form of a stun­ning neo-retro suc­ces­sor.
