Given that it's going to take me longer than I thought to put up the interview with JC Biver, I thought that I'd give a quick answer to the questions on the Autavia. As the title of the thread says, the new Autavia will be powered by the Calibre CH80, which as we guessed a few months back, will be renamed the Calibre Heuer-03. While the initial run will be small, the Heuer-03 will then be offered in the standard TAG Heuer range from 2018/ 2019. There are no major changes between the CH80 and Heuer-03. For 2017 there will be just one model offered- the Black dial with the white sub-dials. Expect a case size of 41mm, and while I didn't specifically ask the question, I'd certainly expect a date function too. Could there be other colour dials? Yes, but after a year or so. Not initially. So, why will TAG Heuer make a larger case size and add a date when the original was 39mm and had no date? Biver was very strong on this- had no interest in making an exact copy. The original stays the original, and the vintage collectors can stick with that knowing there is no modern copy. The new watch is made for 2017, and while it takes its style from the past, they do not want to repeat what happened with the Silverstone- i.e. vintage collectors argue the case for an exact re-edition and then don't buy it when it comes out because it, because they're only into vintage! Can't win. More soon, but wanted to share the Autavia news!
