TAG Heuer Unveils A Brand New Autavia Collection For Classy Adventurers

An icon gets a makeover and more options.

The most recent revival of the iconic Autavia timepiece from TAG Heuer was already a decent looker when it debuted in 2017. It was a classic chronograph with genuine sixties aesthetic further bolstered by its design cues taken from the world of aviation.

Fast forward two years and TAG Heuer now have a brand new Autavia model – seven of them in fact. At this year’s Baselworld the Swiss watchmaker turned the Autavia name into a collection which features the brand’s latest innovations in a classic body – a perfect companion for the classiest of adventurers, they call it.  All the hallmarks that made the Autavia a favourite exist in the new models which are now distinguished by their unique dial colours and range of strap and bracelet options.

What remains of course is the Austavia’s ruggedness and reliability. The watch wears a dial design which mimics the dashboard instrument found in racing cars and aircraft. It’s what’s inside that counts here with the watches making use of TAG’s latest innovation in a carbon composite hairspring which ensures precision timing performance over time thanks to the material’s superior elasticity properties when compared to steel.
