    David... This is not my original one that Sold a few months back (The buyer of that never got back in touch with me)...
    The one I am currently selling is on behalf of a friend who has definitely registered the warranty with you as I was there when he did it.

    Best regards

    The current re-list is due to the winning bidder not paying... Hopefully this will stop the endless messages I seem to be getting asking the obvious!
    Best regards

    Again with his Autavia, I guess, meeting with Steve McQueen and Rico Steinemann at 12h of Sebring.

    At first I thought Steinemann was also wearing a Siffert in this photo but I found another photo online:

    The right subdial seems bigger than the left so perhaps the UG big eye?

    That blue stitching on the strap made the combination even better!

    So I just found out that TAG Heuer made a Jo Siffert edition Autavia in 2018. I know they are pretty rare and only 100 exist but does anyone know what they are trading at? My grail watch is a black dial/steel bezel Daytona and was wondering if I should just save up in the long haul for the Daytona or pick up the Siffert within the year.

    If your grail is a Daytona I would say you’ll struggle with the Autavia - comparatively it’s a lot larger. 42mm vs the Daytona’s 38.5 but the biggest difference will be the height, the Autavia is positively wedge sized compared to the Rolex.

    That said, I am a massive fan of the Autavia and the Daytona has never done anything for me. I’d try both on - the C11 Autavia (designed by our very own DC) is exactly the same size as all the other current ones. You probably won’t find a SS Daytona anywhere so maybe try a PM one and ignore the additional weight....

    Thanks for the input, I do have a formula 1 which is 42mm and the size fits fine. It's more the history that watches have behind them both being worn by famous racing drivers and being used in racing. I will take a trip to my AD and try on the Autavia, I don't think the size will be a problem. It probably still will be less than half the cost of a Daytona and I won't have to wait over 2 years to get one. Plus the subtle blue details on the Siffert are a nice touch.
