Lot Essay

According to the Archives of Tag Heuer the present watch was made in circa 1975.

The present watch is part of the second series of the exceedingly rare "White Orange Boy” Autavia. It features longer indexes painted lengthwise. With what appears to be a slightly warmer white base than found on the “Jo Siffert” Autavia counterparts, the “White Orange Boy” further has signal orange accents rather than blue accents. The orange renders the overall aesthetic of the look to be very modern, and one can imagine that it would be the perfect complement to a vintage Porsche Carrera in signal orange.
