Pack an Art Déco punch on your wrist

TAG Heuer Autavia: The Autavia’s story can be traced back to 1933, when it was a dashboard instrument used in racing cars and aircrafts. After production stopped in 1957, then CEO Jack Heuer decided to use it for the chronograph wristwatch. This new timepiece captured the excitement of rally racing and was a big hit, till once again, production stopped in 1985. Now, TAG Heuer has reintroduced it as a stand-alone collection, with a 60-minute bi-directional ceramic bezel and TAG Calibre 5 movement. “The origins of this new line comes from a very important timepiece from the TAG Heuer archives, The Time Of Trip, launched in 1911,” says Catherine Eberlé-Devaux, Heritage Director of TAG Heuer. “Its round shape and dark brown and bronze-rose colours and great legibility with near Arabic indexes, belong to the 1910s, and definitely has its place in the Art Déco movement.” At ₹2,80,000 (steel) and ₹3,40,000 (bronze).
