The Autavia is the legendary driver's chronograph from the sixties. The name is a contraction of AUTomobile and AVIAtion. Created in 1962, this iconic model, still in production have become a beloved model by today's collectors. The present watch is a great example of an early two register Autavia with 30 minutes chronograph capacity from the first generation. The significant features are the oversized white sub-dials, dauphine hands and the turning bezel with 12 hours division.
