Lot Essay

The first automatic Autavia was introduced into the market in 1969. The rarer version with white dial, black subsidiary dials and blue seconds hand, such as the present watch, is known as the "Jo Siffert" Autavia as it had been worn and promoted by Swiss Formula One star Jo Siffert.

Another attractive feature of this watch is its nearly unused, original condition.
