Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price.

For sale, Autavia, Reference 3646, first execution screw-back case.

  • first execution screw-back case, with first execution dial (large registers)
  • second execution hands, have steel edges and lume inserts . . . these were NOS hands, put on the watch two years ago; color of the lume is perfect match to the triangle on the bezel
  • case and movement marked Ed. Heuer & Co.
  • serial number 52240 suggests that this one was from second batch of Autavias and that steel-edged hands are correct for the watch (later than the all-lume hands, used in the first batch)
  • watch has been serviced recently and has run spot-on for the last three days . . . zero seconds gain / loss over the last three days, in a variety of positions -- one the wrist and on the shelf / chronograph running and chronograph stopped . . . spectacular runner!!
  • chronograph functions (start / stop / reset) are quick and crisp
  • case, pushers and crown are exceptionally clean
  • dial and bezel show consistent age; appear to be untouched originals
  • sold as "head only", as this was a custom-made strap that will move to another Autavia.
  • Price is $3,600 (firm), plus shipping and insurance (required)
  • Payment by bank wire or check; no PayPal
This is an honest, original watch that shows nice patina / wabi / aging . . . colorful and fun to wear!!
