The Autavia has been part of the TAG Heuer core foundation since its inception in 1962. Sixty years later, TAG Heuer celebrates another trip around the sun for the Autavia with three new models added to the collection. The TAG Heuer Autavia combines the elements of their automotive heritage and aviation spirit to create a collection of distinctly designed watches that has stood the test of time. The 60th Anniversary TAG Heuer Autavia release consists of a pair of bold flyback chronometer chronographs and, for the first time in the collection, a three-hand GMT, all of which are ready for your travels in the air or on the road, and everything in between. Let’s take a closer look.
The Autavia Flyback Chronograph duo will come in two different variations, one in stainless steel with a silvery dial and the other in a DLC coated case paired with matching black dial. Both will use the new chronometer certified Calibre Heuer 02 movement, giving the Autavia Flyback the ability to reset the running chronograph timer with a push of a button, eliminating the traditional three step, Stop/Reset/Start, method in a regular chronograph in the event something needed to timed consecutively. The flyback chronograph would prove to be very useful, in situations such as accurately timing race laps, aviation navigation or for more less stressful activities such as timing a couple of pizzas in the oven.
