Considering to part ways with a beautiful rare tag Heuer, the CY2110 “Siffert” Autavia. I believe I’m the second owner of this watch. When I bought it off the previous and (I believe) original owner in 2015, it had a scratch on the bezel. So in March of 2016 I had it replaced and decided to do a complete servicing with Tourneau . This included, per my email from them:
“Complete Maintenance of Movement, which is accompanied by a two-year service warranty. This full service includes disassembly of all watch parts, ultrasonic cleaning of movement parts, lubrication of parts, replacement of gaskets, all adjustments to movement parts, restoration of water resistance, demagnetization, and full Quality Control testing to ensure that watch is functioning to factory specifications. “
This serving ran me $540 plus the cost of the bezel.
The watch runs flawlessly and keeps excellent time. My only thing to note is that while winding it, the crown does turn back a couple of degrees when you release it. Never noticed it on any other watch but i have no reason to believe it affects the functionality.
Chrono works as it should and resets to 12:00 on the dot. Aside from some light desk dives, the watch is in great condition.
I have the original round zipper case but it is a bit worn. These can easily be found on eBay. But for the purposes of safety in shipping, I’ll also be including a hard box from a more recent TH.
This is one of those watches I’ll be kicking myself for getting rid of one day. They are growing in popularity greatly- I’m sure a significant reason the Autavia was reborn in its current iteration. Below is an interesting read from Calibre11, which seems to have been updated since I was brushing up on this watch.
Ive been consistently active on watchuseek.com since 2012 with many transactions successfully done. I've only done one here- where i purchased a Silverstone reissue in 2016. Here's a link to the listing on WUS where you can find pics. Feel free to email me at email@example.com. Thanks!
