    Two things.

    There has been a three hand Carrera before the TAGHeuer one.

    There has been a diving Autavia before.

    True. I'd rather keep the Autavia as a regular part of the range and extend the line of available models rather than keep it a a limited edition chronograph

    Got any pictures of the autavia dive watch? Does it look like a generic heritage dive watch, or like an autavia?

    How many of the 6 features does the autavia watch cross off?

    What makes that an Autavia? It looks more like a 1000 to me. It doesn't even have an Autavia case does it?

    You mean the one on the left that says Autavia?:cool:

    It's a 1984 Heuer Autavia Diver 100

    Ha, ha, very drole!

    Fair enough, but it doesn't really sport any of the Autavia design cues.

    OK, we have been talking at crossed purposes. I thought you were showing us a picture of a 3-hand Autavia diver, hence my comments, which were directed at the watch on the right.

    To add to my earlier comments regarding the positioning of the watches; if it was to be some sort of nod to vintage dive watch styles, then the "racing chronograph" markers don't quite fit. Either that or a diving/countdown/60 bezel should be the starting point before variations are offered.

    As it is, it looks to be a little lost as it were. Other than the simple view that it is a three hand Autavia, I can't immediately see what kind of watch it is.

    Of course I'm ignoring that the likely starting point for this was the gmt and the three hander followed, instead of the other way around, as it normally is.

    The one on the right is a 1000 series, 1000m diver. I think the pic DC posted was taken to show the diving elements that were used on the Autavia, which were the Mercedes hands, diver bezel and dot indices. A very sought after diver....although many arguments to be had for why it’s not a diver really

    Technically, the 1000m wasn't part of the 1000 model line.
