This very rare, 17-jewel manual-winding, second execution Heuer Autavia (ref. 2446 with Valjoux 72 movement) vintage watch is in great condition, has excellent mechanical functionality and is guaranteed for authenticity.

This unpolished Heuer Autavia 2446, with serial number 59 XXX has a round, stainless steel case with large chronograph pushers and an original signed, fluted crown. The case measures 39 mm in diameter and is sharp and thick, retaining its definition. The screwdown caseback features the Heuer hallmark, 'AUTAVIA' and 'STAINLESS STEEL CHRONOGRAPH - WATERPROOF - GUARANTEED 300 FT UNDER WATER' on the outside. The case has straight-line lugs with sharp bevels and it comes on a newBlackhawk Grey, Nubuck, rally-patterned, hand-made Heuerville strap with a stainless steel tang buckle. 

The case features a black, rotating bezel with a sixty-minute graduation and has faded to a dark grey. Similarly, the black, second-execution dial has faded to a dark grey, has white minute markers and applied, faceted silver index markers for the hours. It features a white Heuer logo, while 'AUTAVIA' is referenced on the dial at twelve o'clock. A 'SWISS' marking is visible at six o'clock on the twelve-hour sub-register.
The chronograph hand is white, giving the dial an nice monochromatic look. The sub-registers at three, six and nine o'clock are the thirty-minute, the twelve-hour and the sub-second dials, respectively, featuring Arabic numerals and black, second-execution hands. It has previously relumed Dauphine hands. 

The watch carries the manual-winding, Valjoux Calibre 72 (labelled as "Leonidas") at its heart, beating at 18,000 A/h, with a power reserve of approximately 46 hours.
