Re: Very early Siffert Autavia
In Response To: Re: Very early Siffert Autavia ()

Thanks, I’m very happy to be reunited with one again. Interesting info on the serial numbers, I’m in a manufacturing business and I can see how this can happen, an assembler grabs whichever box is closest to them for production. I haven’t opened the case yet, I have a case opener but I don’t want to scratch the caseback. The calendar advances at 11:45PM.

: Hi
: very nice find, congratulation.

: because of producing in batches, 1413xx may be asssembled before
: 1412xx and therefore the earlier dial.
: Gives an idea about early batches.
: Do you have movement pictures? Are there parts with pitting surface
: too, like the early movement?
: cheers
: mich
