Heuer Super Autavia Dashboard Chronograph
October 3, 2012
Introduced in 1958, the Heuer Super Autavia was the first dashboard chronograph for motorized vehicles such as planes, boats and automobiles. The one we found (pictured) is a B Series Super Autavia Dashboard Chronograph, which would have been produced from 1959-1967. It has a 17-jewel manual wind column-wheel chronograph movement in immaculate condition. The hands, dial and bezel appear to be in original condition. And based on the video included with the listing, everything seems to be in very good working condition. If you've want it, the eBay "Buy It Now" price is $4,500, with an option to "Make an Offer."
Although the 1958 A Series is the first Super Autavia, this B Series Super Autavia is surely quite a find for a serious Heuer collector. (Heuer became TAG Heuer after being purchased in 1985.)
