Description
In the world of vintage Heuer, this Heuer Autavia 2446 GMT First Execution has the status of the "Holy Grail". It was the very first execution of the Heuer Autavia with a 24 hours GMT hand and a pepsi bezel. According to researches, approximately 10 pieces of this model are known today.

This particular Autavia GMT has a low serial number 95.xxx, which makes this watch even more special. All other known versions of that model have the serial numbers in the format 100.xxx. This could be an indication that our example was one of the test versions. Another interest fact: the dial does not have the inscription "T SWISS" on the sub-dial at 6 o'clock, which is seen on other pieces.

The reverse-panda dial is absolutely perfect and has been preserved in mint condition. The luminous material is original and has a nice dark brown color. The 24-hour hand and the beautiful pepsi bezel make it possible to read a second time zone. The stainless-steel case has been preserved in a great condition and still has a thick profile. The engravings on the screwed caseback are clearly visible and sharp. The pepsi bezel shows rich colors. The bezel insert shows natural signs of age in some spots, which make this watch very honest and authentic.

The driving force of this chronograph is the coveted Valjoux 72 movement, which is equipped with an additional GMT module. The official name of this caliber is Valjoux 724. All functions have been checked by our watchmaker during a full service. Everything works perfectly.

This vintage watch combines many features that are sought after by a discerning vintage watch collector: pepsi bezel, chronograph, 24-hour GMT, screw-down stainless-steel case. This Heuer Autavia 2446 GMT is an incredible and important piece of Heuer history. Together with the Chronomatic and Skiperrera models this Autavia GMT is a dream watch not only for a Heuer enthusiast but also for every vintage watch collector.
