Re: No Need for Confusion
In Response To: No Need for Confusion ()

: The watch you purchased was probably an Autavia
: GMT, Reference 2446 or 2446C . . . a manual
: (hand-wound) chronograph, powered by a
: variation of the Valjoux 72.

: This was introduced around 1967 or 1968, and
: had three registers -- continuous seconds at
: 9 o'clock, chronograph minute recorder at 3
: o'clock and chronograph hour recorder at 6
: o'clock. It had no date.

: Here it is, shown alongside a Breitling pilot's
: chronograph.


: The automatic Autavias were introduced in 1969,
: and featured two registers (for the
: chronograph), no continuous seconds, and a
: date window at 6 o'clock, as shown below.


: Thanks for the question.
