Here is the 2018 Heuer Autavia Jo Siffert Collector’s Edition, the first time that the Jo Siffert name has appeared on a Heuer Autavia, vintage or modern. Just as the Monaco is forever linked to Steve McQueen, for Heuer collectors the Siffert name is synonymous with the white, black and blue Autavia 1163T launched in 1969: the “Siffert” Autavia.
Drawing inspiration from it and the three-register 73633, the Calibre 11 x Tag Heuer Jo Siffert Autavia Watch recreates the essence of these classic timepieces with modern components.
It’s based on last year’s CBE2110, with a 42mm steel case, modern Calibre Heuer-02 movement, opaline white dial, black sub-dials, and blue central hand and markers. Finished with a bidirectional bezel with black aluminum insert, accompanied by both a “grain of rice” 7-row steel bracelet and black leather strap.
The new watch is priced at CHF 5,600 and is limited to 100 pieces.
