Re: Which Autavia?
In Response To: Which Autavia? *LINK* ()

I'm not sure what you mean by "The bezel does not look like any on the site" since is "looks" like the very common Minutes/hours bezel found in most Autavias.

However, you are right. There IS a problem. The bezel insert is most probably taken from an 11630 Autavia (see the luminous circle at 12) and fitted to this 1163 Autavia. This is why it doesn't look to fit very nicely - see the gap between bezel and crystal. Anyway not a VERY big problem IMHO.

Btw, there are soooooo many little variations on the Autavias than none can be 100% sure. So there is still the possibility that this Autavia is 100% in its original state.


: Any guidance as to which Autavia model this is?
: The bezel does not look like any on the
: site.
