Lot Essay

While the famous racing driver Jochen Rindt wore a Heuer Autavia reference 2446 with such regularity during the 1960s that collectors now simply refer to it by his surname, his stunning partner Nina’s name also became synonymous with a model of Universal Geneva. While her watch was a black on while “panda” dial, collectors now refer to the reverse panda as the “evil Nina”. The example of this superb reference offered here is presented in fantastic condition with original components and desirable Universal Geneve Gay Freres bracelet.
