TAG Heuer introduces the new TAG Heuer Autavia flyback 42 mm chronograph replica (CBE511C.FC8280), adding a new all-black model to the famous sports chronograph.

History

Autavia is an important collection for TAG Heuer replica. Designed and launched in 1962 under the leadership of Jack Heuer, the watch is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. The chronograph has always been part of the collection’s DNA. However, when the name was revived in 2019 with the launch of the new collection, the complication was missing and the watch was only offered in a time and date version. 

Since 2022 marks 60 years of Autavia, the brand has decided to correct things and presents a collection of 3 new models, with the new TAG Heuer Autavia 60th Anniversary Flyback Chronograph replica and GMT 3 Hands.

The Dial

There are two editions of the new TAG Heuer Autavia replica presented today. First is a rather classic yet effective version in stainless steel with a silver-brushed dial and contrasting black counters for the chronograph indications – not for the small seconds at 6 o’clock. The other model is bolder and stronger, with its black DLC-coated stainless steel case and entirely black dial – an ode to past military watches from Heuer. Both editions come with oversized applied Arabic numerals and hands, both largely filled with SLN.

The Case

The replica Autavia 60th Anniversary Flyback Chronograph, relies on the design codes introduced in 2019 with the revamped Autavia collection time-and-date. This means a 42mm case with straight sides, faceted lugs with brushed surfaces and polished accents and mushroom-shaped prominent pushers. A major difference with the other icon of the brand, the Carrera, the Autavia (true to its aviation roots) was equipped with an external rotating bezel and this new chronograph version is no exception to the rule. It features a bidirectional rotating bezel with a 60-minute scale and a black ceramic insert. Also, the model is water-resistant to 100 metres.

The Movement

The new replica Autavia Chronometer Flyback is powered by the manufacture Calibre Heuer 02 COSC Flyback movement, beating at the frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) with for a power reserve of 80 hours. While the basics are identical, the TAG Heuer Autavia 60th Anniversary replica benefits from a new edition that combines the precision of a chronometer certification by the COSC and a novel flyback function that allows for quick reset of the timing sessions. The movement on both editions is equipped with a black coated rotor and red accents, including on the column wheel.

The Straps

TAG Heuer’s new Autavia flyback chronograph replica comes with a black alligator strap with a steel pin buckle that can be easily replaced with a quick release system.
