Re: age of this box *PIC*
In Response To: age of this box ()

: hi,
: as the watch has the early type autavia
: bracelet, I do not think that it was for the
: late 1970s, early 1980s Autavia type....
: don`t you agree?

Very good point.
However look at Chucks post in the "Is my watch a chronograph" thread. There is a page from a 80's catalog that features an Autavia with the exact same bracelet and hands as the one in the box.

Still, you may be right that the watchbox is of earlier time, because, as strange as it sounds, I think that Autavias with the same (?) bracelet and hands were also available in very early 70's!

Are we confused or what?
