Here are the Backs (w/ Israeli Military Markings)

Here are the backs of two Autavias, marked to show that they were issued by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Click on the images to see additional photos, in the OnTheDash galleries.

I do not know the meaning of the "M" or the numbers.

I am told that the Reference 113.603 (Black-Cased, Automatic Autavia) [below] was issued to commanders in the Israeli Navy, so that production numbers were very low. I have seen three of them, in five years of looking.

I have never heard any background on the use of the Reference 73363 [below]. I imagine that it was in more common use, but I can't recall ever seeing any more of these.

Thanks for expressing the interest in these chronographs. They are as solid as any of the Autavias, and very legible.



: I like the Reference 113.603;
: Any background info on this? How can you tell
: it is Israeli military issue? How many where
: made? etc etc?
