At BaselWorld 2017 we had the opportunity to photograph the delightful TAG Heuer Autavia, a watch that we first went hands-on with during the Geneva Watch Fair 2017. And that's not all: TAG Heuer also introduced a new limited edition in honor of Jack Heuer!
I highly suspect those of you reading this article know the story of the Autavia by now, but here's a quick recap: it's a re-edition inspired by the historical 2446, powered by the brand new caliber 02, with the final configuration (dial / bezel) decided through public voting on AutaviaCup.com. It's a beauty.
We had the opportunity to see both the CBE2110.BA0687 (bracelet) and CBE2110.FC8226 (strap) during the Geneva Watch Fair 2017, but for BaselWorld TAG Heuer had another trick up its sleeve: the Autavia Special Edition 'Jack Heuer 85th Birthday'. This limited edition of 1932 pieces is created in honor of the 85th birthday of Jack Heuer - I suppose the full name gave that away? It features a silver dial with black subdials, and a black aluminum bezel insert calibrated for both 0-60 minutes and 12 hours. The case back features a special engraving and the limited edition number (XXXX/1932). It will be available from December 2017 and we'll upload it to our eBoutique ASAP.
