Thread: New to me Heuer 1163 Autavia

  1. #1

    New to me Heuer 1163 Autavia

    Not so much a review as I don't know "jack" about Heuers :rimshot:
    but I know we have a few experts here if needed.


    This one is driven by the Cal-11i movement which has a number of improvements over the original Cal-11 and lasted a couple years before the Cal-12 was introduced. It uses a micro-rotor, which some say needs to be have a higher level of motion while wearing....smaller rotor not as efficient as larger ones?? Any experts care to weigh in on this?


    There are a few case variations, too. This one has the "thinner" screw-in caseback, slightly thinner bezel and cutouts for the pushers on the top of the case, as opposed to on the bottom. Raised and domed acrylic/plastic crystal :love:

    Wow. Stunning example of an amazing watch. More than the Carrera and the Monaco even, I understand that that was Heuer's real racing watch.

    Thank you, all

    This one has a good chance of sticking around for more than the usual few months.
