second execution screw-back case; third execution dial; known to collectors as the “Rindt” Autavia, as this was the model worn by Austrain Formula One World Champion, Jochen Rindt

Catalog Essay —

Deriving its name from the combination of the words “automobile” and “aviation”, the Heuer Autavia chronograph wristwatches from the 1960s were often found on the wrists of professional racecar drivers.

With its beautiful black dial with contrasting white subdsidiary registers, the present Autavia Reference 2446 from 1966 is an especially sought after model. Known amongst collectors as the “Jochen Rindt”, the watch was named after the famous Formula One driver Karl Jochen Rindt (18 April 1942 – 5 September 1970) who was often photographed wearing
a similar example. This is not to be confused with the highly popular Universal Genève “Nina Rindt” Compax, which gained notoriety ever since Jochen’s wife was photographed wearing one.

Featuring a rotating bezel calibrated for twelve hours, an oversized case measuring 38.5 mm in diameter, and a high quality dial manufactured by Singer, it is a superb piece that ticks every box for watch enthusiasts.

This chronograph is in as good as it gets condition, and is one of the best examples to appear on the market in recent years. It is a true treasure for the discerning collector.

Estimate 12,000 to 24,000 CHF

Sold for 75,000 CHF (including 25% buyer’s premium) / $76,888 USD

Lot 38, Autavia, Reference 73663, from the early 1970

Phillips 16 May 14 Lot 38

Phillips 16 May 14 Lot 38

Catalog listing HERE

Catalog Essay

The manually-wound Heuer Autavia reference 73663 timepiece was introduced in the early 1970s, with a classic, three-register dial layout as the originals from the 1960s, but housed in a more substantial case measuring 42 mm in diameter.

Apart from its simply immaculate condition, the present lot stands out with its stunning black dial featuring “Viceroy” colors. White sub-dials contrast sharply against the matte black main dial, accented by delightful red hash marks at the top of each applied baton hour marker. Fitted with a rotating ‘MH’, or Minutes / Hours bezel, the red chronograph hand complements the red dial accents perfectly. At the 6 o’clock position the “SWISS” designation is featured inside the white subsidiary dial.

The present example of Heuer’s legendary chronograph is preserved in absolutely mint condition – still retaining the original factory brushed and polished surfaces, crisp facets, and sharply defined edges. It comes complete with its typical pierced leather bracelet and steel Heuer buckle, making this an attractive addition to any collection.

Estimate 2,000 to 4,000 CHF

Sold for 10,000 CHF (including 25% buyer’s premium) / $10,250 USD

Lot 42, Monaco, Reference 74033N, circa 1975

Phillips 2016 May 14 Lot 42

Catalog Essay —

The black PVD Heuer Monaco Reference 74033N (N for noir – black in French), nicknamed the “Dark Lord” by collectors, is a rather mythical watch. Some have seen photos but very few have held one.

The Monaco was first launched in 1969 and was the first square-cased waterproof chronograph. Nevertheless, sales were not up to par with expectations and it seems that in a last effort to save this model, it was decided to make a black PVD model. According to Jack Heuer, the idea came to him after he had seen the King of Spain wearing a black watch.

A very small run of these black PVD Monacos were made in the mid 1970s and it remains uncertain if they were production pieces or prototypes. Accordingly, this reference never made it into a catalogue.

Visually speaking, the simple and clean design is one of the most striking ones seen on any wristwatch thanks to the superbly contrustuous colors: black for the background, white for the time indication hands, and a bright orange hand for the chronograph function.

So exceptional is the present lot, it is featured prominently in Richard Crosthwaite’s “Heuer Monaco – Design Classic” reference book. Stating that the present example of the Heuer Monaco 74033N is desirable is an understatement. This watch is over 40 years old, yet looks as if it just left the Heuer ateliers yesterday. It is in absolutely pristine condition and the black PVD coating shows no signs of wear.

Estimate 25,000 to 50,000 CHF

Sold for 62,500 CHF (including 25% buyer’s premium) / $64,073 USD

Lot 57, Autavia, Reference 113.603, military — issued by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)

Catalog Essay —

The Autavia is amongst Heuer’s most important product lines. Since the model name was first introduced by the brand in 1933, Autavia timepieces were designed and marketed for racecar drivers and pilots. With their robust, water resistant cases and outstanding legibility, militaries of multiple nations selected the Autavia watches to be issued to their officers and combat personnel.

The present reference 113.603 / 11063 V is an exceptional military Autavia that was issued to the elite Naval officers of the Israeli Defense Forces – known as Tzahal in Hebrew. The military engraving on the caseback, “1633-M”, documents the fact that it was an issued timepiece. Like similar military-issued Autavias, the case lacks a serial number – an absolutely correct detail, as these were special watches fabricated outside of Heuer’s regular production.

For an issued watch intended for military use, the present example was sparingly worn on the battlefield, if ever. The black PVD is completely present throughout the case, in accordance with the watch’s overall excellent, original condition. The present lot is an outstanding, rarely seen example of a military-issued Heuer watch for the discerning collector.

Estimate 6,000 to 12,000 CHF

Sold for 87,500 CHF (including 25% buyer’s premium) / $89,703 USD

Description

A stainless steel flyback chronograph military “Bund” wristwatch with 30 minute registers Ref 1550 SG, case 8398, made for the German military assignation number 6645-12-146-3774, circa 1970.  Cal. 230 manual winding lever movement, 17 jewels, mono-metallic balance; black matte dial, luminous Arabic numerals, subsidiary dials for constant seconds and 30-minute register, outer minute track; stainless steel micro sand blasted case, bi-directional revolving black bezel calibrated for 60 units, back secured by 4 screws, back engraved; dial signed; diameter 43 mm

Catalog Note —

In 1967 Heuer was commissioned by the German military, the Bundeswehr, to produce a chronograph watch which was designed to cater to their pilots. The present model with the reference 1550 SG is equipped with a Valjoux 230 manual movement and a “clean” dial – no markings beyond the “Heuer” logo. It includes a flyback function and permits easy readability, which were requested characteristics to cater to the needs of the Bundeswehr’s pilots.

Catalog Essay

Heuer was very much involved with timekeeping technologies along with Formula One and the Carrera was the watch he developed specifically for the motorsport.

The present Heuer Carrera chronograph in 18k yellow gold was given to the legendary Swedish Formula One driver Ronnie Peterson by Jack W. Heuer, the great-grandson of Edouard Heuer, founder of the Heuer watch brand, on the occasion of the signing of a sponsorship agreement with Heuer in Bienne.

Ronnie Petersen was known to be a gentleman on the Formula One circuit and raced with peers such as Mario Andretti, Nicki Lauda, Emerson Fittibaldi, James Hunt, Clay Regazzoni, Joseph Siffert and Jacky Ickx, most of them sponsored by Heuer.

The reference 1158 in gold, known as the ‘Pilot’s Watch’, was initially intended to be exclusively for the Ferrari pilots, however its huge popularity convinced Jack Heuer to produce additional pieces.

The Carrera model, launched in 1964, was made in three main series, first with the “Carrera” case, then with the “Compressor” case and finally this series’ with the “Autavia” case, referenced 1158. The first series of reference 1158 was fitted with the Heuer calibre 11 movement and had round registers. The present watch represents the upgraded version, made in 1972, with the Heuer calibre 12 and a new dial-layout.

Less than five hundred pieces of reference 1158 in 18k yellow gold is known to have been produced.

Included in this lot is a Société de Banque Suisse 100g 999,9 fine gold bar, the “Prix Rouge et Blanc Joseph Siffert”, which was an award created for outstanding bravery. The present lot is one which was awarded to Ronnie Peterson for his performance at the Nürburgring, Germany G.P. in 1972.
