Model Code: 1163T
One of the most iconic Autavia models produced by Heuer, the 1163T, or the ‘Siffert’ model, has gained huge admiration from its cutting-edge blue and white design as well as its important connection to famous racing driver Jo Siffert. This particular 6th execution model stands in fabulous condition, boasting its original box, papers, hang tag and bracelet. This version incorporates the vastly revered ‘panda’ dial design: contrasting from the once-white, now beautifully aged cream dial stands two piercing black sub-dials. This later design variation has numbered indices from 1-12 for the hour numbers. Much of this watch’s appeal resides in the vibrant accents of blue found in the chronograph hand, hours markers and small inserts on the brushed steel hands. The watch is powered by a Calibre 12 automatic movement and is signed on the bridge. The movement is held within an automatic screw-back case with a brushed finish on top and polished sides. Additionally, the signed ‘Heuer’ crown can be found on the left side, with fluted chronograph pushers located correspondingly on the right. Alongside the watch comes unsigned papers (as was common at the time) as well as its original box featuring the Heuer logo and 'Automatic' print on the front. The likelihood of encountering a ‘Siffert’ Autavia in its original complete set is becoming increasingly slim. Through its rich legacy, striking beauty and growing rarity, this piece will stand at the forefront of any collection.
