Heuer Autavia 2446C Unpolished

compressor case - unpolished case - fantastic look

This charismatic Heuer Autavia 2446C is a rare 1970's racing chronograph powered by the Valjoux 72 movement.

The main features of the reference 2446C are the famous manual-wind caliber Valjoux 72 and the compressor case. While the screw-down Autavia was produced for seven years and the Caliber 11 and 12 models for long 16 years, the reference 2446C with the Valjoux 72 movement was only available from 1968 to 1971.

A true eye-catcher is the black reverse panda dial with white sub-registers. The red accents on the black surface look very stylish. Another special thing about this watch is the beautiful creamy lume evenyl aged in the hour markers and hands.

The stainless steel case has never been polished and was very rarely worn on the wrist. It has its full profile, sharp beveled lugs and sharp engravings on the back. Even the small semicircles next to the opening of the case cover, which quickly disappear in most watches as a result of natural wear, are still 100% intact on this watch.

The chronograph features a black rotating bezel that has been preserved in perfect condition. It shows hour and minute markers. The Autavia is powered by the manual-wind caliber Valjoux 72. The movement runs perfectly and precisely. The chronograph starts, stops and resets properly.

This beautifully preserved Heuer Autavia 2446C is a true and rare treasure for any vintage watch collector.
