    This appeared in my chrono24 feed priced at 50k. Apparently one of 3 protos.

    Price seems ridiculous but have not seen this variation mentioned before... felt worth posting to poll opinion

    Yeah, it's real - there were a couple of prototypes Heuer created with a high-beat variation of the Cal. 12 movement. There was an old thread on these a few years ago - https://forums.calibre11.com/threads/very-cool-orange-autavia-high-beat.18801/

    This one however does not appear to actually be one of those; it just has one of the orange test dials in what appears to be an 11630P case - or at least just the bezel. This one's a put-together, not a prototype.
