    Great article, thank you.
    Marginal improvements over the prototype make up for significant changes, especially on the subdials.

    Agree on the bracelet...I just can't warm to the strap. I'd prefer a standard black strap...tan isn't my thing

    Vintage brown leather. A change from black, and goes perfectly with anything you are wearing.

    Really like both straps but I would prefer the bracelet. It's different enough from other bracelets.

    Yes, a black leather strap with a deployment bracelet would have been a nice option like the ones we saw on preliminary pictures.

    I wonder if the JH 85th Anniversary Autavia will be around for a picture...

    I am converting to the bracelet now.

    So how does it feel on the hand ? Is it as good or better than what we would imagine it be ?

    In my opinion, think they should of gone with a deeper brown perforated calfskin strap with the folding Heuer clasp; pretty much the same strap that is on the Monza. If I do end up getting one and the lug size is the same as the Monza, I will try the Monza strap on it.
