TAG Heuer is launching a new Autavia. Departing from tradition, the new Autavia Isograph Chronometer is not a chronograph but boasts some convincing arguments on the mechanical side.
THE 2019 TAG HEUER AUTAVIA ISOGRAPH CHRONOMETER
The new Fake TAG Heuer Autavia Isograph Chronometer in 42mm round case extended by bevelled lugs – the shape of the case, its rotating bezel, and the oversized crown are all part of vintage Autavia watches. This new model will be available in either stainless steel or bronze cases. The bidirectional rotating bezel has a coined edge and is inlaid with ceramic. The extra-large, easy-to-operate crown is fluted for better grip and emblazoned with the TAG Heuer shield.
The dial of this 2019 Autavia, highly legible thanks to large Arabic numerals, Tag Heuer Replica in different colours (grey, brown-green, blue), all with a “smoked” gradient effect and a slightly grained finish. The date is displayed at 6 o’clock. The steel caseback is closed and features a propeller and tyre logo, an ode to the automotive and aviation origins of the model.
MODERN MECHANICS INSIDE
Inside the new TAG Heuer Autavia Isograph Chronometer is the automatic calibre 5, a name that must ring a bell, as TAG has often used these mechanics. Calibre 5 usually refers to an automatic movement based on the Sellita SW 200. However, in this case, the Autavia sports a “new” Calibre 5.
Inside is a chronometer-certified version of the SW 200, which features the cutting-edge carbon composite hairspring manufactured internally by TAG Heuer. Among other benefits, it allows the oscillator to be virtually unaffected by gravity, shocks and magnetic fields. Its design ensures concentric oscillations for improved performance.
CARBON COMPOSITE HAIRSPRING
Developed and manufactured in-house by TAG Heuer, the new carbon composite hairsprings are the result of multi-disciplinary expertise. The high-profile team gathered by Guy Sémon in the frame of the LVMH Research Institute is as unique as it is impressive.
