Customised Heuer Autavia PVD
However, as this Autavia shows, there is nothing wrong with a customised Heuer, so long as it’s not pretending to be an original vintage piece- you know, the stories about an Autavia model that never appeared in any catalogue and was apparently only sold in a three small cities in Argentina during 1977…
This Autavia is the work of Abel Court, who details his creation- and collaborators- here
What you are looking at is a watch that uses all original Heuer parts, but from different watches and models- the case of a 11063V that has expertly had a PVD coating applied, a Calibre 15 movement and sub-dial hands from a Carrera. The watch has produced a very favourable reaction- and why not? It looks fantastic and doesn’t pretend to be anything more than what it is- a creative, limited edition of one sourced from the very best of the Heuer parts bin.
