Re: SCAN DAY: Autavia Automatic

Hi Jim,

Great eye.

Yes, yours has the 1136 bezel, except this little detail, it is fine. Also note that the colour of the hands is a bit stronger than the colour on the dial.

The other 11630 Autavia, has (most probably) a non Heuer bezel. I guess the hands are "right", it is the discoloration that has happened to them that makes them appear "different".

Both types of hour marks are "correct". It just shows once again the great variety of executions of the Heuer models. I believe both executions coexisted in some point in time, but the hour marks in your watch are probably more common (classic) and preceding the flat hour marks. The flat hour marks offer better legibility in the dark, while the other type reflect the light beautifully with their bevelled metallic surfaces.
