    Can't help but feel this was a huge missed opportunity for many of the LEs - maybe not the Siffert, but I'd have had a very hard time not buying a 2-register Hodinkee Orange Boy...

    Any of these in a 39-40mm case would have had me sold.

    Same here; I would have ordered one Orange Boy if it had been a 2-register.

    Agreed though I've no issue with the 42mm size - it's the thickness that really bothers me.

    Wow that was fast. But under MSRP? Wonder what's up with that, I'd have thought someone getting one up on eBay so quickly would be looking to flip

    I guess the thickness of this one is the same as for the normal Autavia's? If that is the case I've never had any problems with the thickness and that was something I was a bit afraid of when I bought it.

    TH got the Heuer 02 for the fragment Carrera to fit in a Telemeter/Skipper case at ~13.5 mm, so here's hoping they shave off at least 1+ mm or so from the 15.6 mm Autavia case one day. Slim chance, right? (pun intended)

    I'm sure this doesn't bother everybody, but it's that one little detail that makes me go from "I really, really, like it but.." to "I love it." Doubt it will ever happen. Die has been cast.

    Thoughts so far @Hubert? Does it have that wow appeal when you opened the box?

    Since I have the other 3 Autavias (Rindt, JH85, Siffert), this one was very familiar. However, the 2 subdials made it a must have in my book.
