The screwback Autavia 2446 “Rindt” was the winner from the recent Autavia Cup contest, and as this kind of gave inspiration towards the 2017 Autavia that we covered last week. The lines of your vintage piece are indeed pretty endearing, in the thick lugs with the compressor case right here, on the balanced reverse panda dial. The hour bezel itself includes a cult following, acquiring been famously worn through the F1 driver Jochen Rindt on its screwback Autavia. Even greater, this a single comes to the authentic Gay Frères bracelet together with the correct endlinks, completing its sporty search. The chronograph minute hand is incorrect as well as the sub-registers do demonstrate some aging signs, underscoring the trade-offs to contemplate when deciding in between a great vintage piece along with a mint re-edition.
