Caliber: Automatic Chronograph Movement Heuer Caliber 12.The Debut Of Heuer Autavia 11630. Heuer unveiled the Autavia 11630 in 1972, which was part of the third generation of watches to join the Autavia collection. The 1970s Autavia watches included the ref. This trio of watches featured a completely new case design with chunky integrated lugs.
The case measures around 42.5 mm in diameter and 15 mm in thickness, along with the now-familiar right-hand position of the chronograph pushers and the left-hand position of the winding crown. A telltale sign of the movement within the vintage Heuer Autavia 11630 is the placement of the winding crown on the left-hand side rather than the more common right side. This signals the presence of the Chronomatic movement. The development of the Chronomatic caliberone of the worlds first automatic chronograph movementswas led by a consortium of watch brands that included Heuer, Breitling, Buren, and Dubois-Depraz.
Chronomatic chronographs were introduced in March 1969 and they were made available for sale to the public the summer of the same year. Heuer named their first version of the Chronomatic movement Caliber 11 and followed it up with a slew of derivatives such as Caliber 12.
And powering this vintage Heuer Autavia 11630 is the Chronomatic-based Caliber 12 automatic chronograph movement operating at 21,600 beats per hour. Sporting a recognizable shape, iconic name, and legendary movement, the vintage Heuer Autavia 11630 is a fantastic living piece of horology history just like the Heuer Monaco.And despite its age, the Heuer Autavia has the added benefit of featuring a modern sized case, making it a very wearable vintage watch that fits todays size standards.
