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. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
For sale is an all-original Heuer Autavia Ref:2446C GMT. I do not know the service history but the watch runs great and all functions operate as designed. Please review the pictures carefully and/or ask for specific pictures as I am attempting to present the watch in its actual condition. Always seem to have a bit of trouble posting pics so again, contact me and I can email directly. On to the watch...
Dial is very lovely! No scratches or pitting. The step subregisters are still perfect. Tritium lume is all original and has not flaked.
Hands are original, correct and match the patina to the dial lume.
The 24-hour bezel is original and has not faded and is really incredible for the age of this piece.
Case is sharp. I am not the original owner but the previous two owners (well-known OTD people and one a know Heuer expert) have stated it is untouched. You can decide after reviewing the photos.
I have recently sold a couple of pieces here on the site so am happy to provide references for serious inquiries. As previously mentioned, contact me if you woud like to see pictures from a different angle, tagged pictures, etc. There are also pictures on my IG feed @watches4william. I am not a watch dealer in any way but just a fellow nerd.
Finally, pricing. These have been very difficult to price fairly as few trade and even fewer have I ever seen in this condition. Kindly submit me offers. This watch is only being sold (as the others were) to fund my home remodel which has gone way over budget. Payment to be made via bank wire and possibly Paypal for the right buyer. Will also ship worldwide. Shipping will be included for fellow OTD members. Watch and myself located in Los Angeles and would welcome a face-to-face transaction.
Thanks to OTD and Jeff for the space.
