    Hello, I come from the Omega forum and I present my new anniversary Heuer Autavia JH 85th, it's my first Tag Heuer, and I tell you that this model has impressed me how beautiful it is. I do not know if the limited print run you have will be a good investment for the future, but right now I love it.

    We started with the unpacking, the box between hard cardboard, plastic imitating leather and velvet, quite good for the watch, without reaching the qualities of Omega


    It has a drawer that opens it and it appears a magnificent book of more than 200 pages with hard cover and a perfect guide with all the models and photos of Autavia of the moment and commercial propaganda
    A book 10


    Take the 02 caliber instruction booklet and the warranty card that is electronic
    It is activated when a computer enters the data


    The magnificent clock, of excellent quality, with a dial of iridesol that with artificial light looks silver and with natural light it looks whiter.
    The armis personally is not my taste, but it is the one that carries and the one that reproduces the arms of the time, but it is solved by placing a leather strap and arranged


    We return with the number of the limited edition of 1932 pieces, which in fact only sold 1931, since the number 0001 was auctioned on November 11 the same Philips auction where the Rolex of Paul Newman was auctioned and by the same auctioneer
    Piece that received € 32,000
    The number 0000 is what Jack Heuer has.


    It carries the signature of JH and the coat of arms of his family


    In summary, my first Tag Heuer, and in my opinion one of the most successful, by design and quality.
    The Autavia are like in Rolex Daytona, for me the most beautiful of the brand.

    Now, many photos

    Don't apologise, most of us can't speak anything but English! Nice watch, great packaging. Wish they made a book for every watch.

    Thanks a lot for all the pictures! Since I bought the black edition I didn't get the book, which is a shame to be honest. I could almost give my left hand for having that picture from the 24th Monaco Grand Prix as a big poster on my wall (off course with the black dial edition instead of the JH edition;)).

    Oh I'd love to have a pair of gloves like that! Unfortunately for me I still have a bad habit of forgetting everything that is not attached to my body...:D

    I do not know if it will have the maximum resolution to make a poster, but to be able to print it if it will be worth it

    Congratulations on the JH85. It is still one of my favourites of Tag Heuer.

    I would say the quality is up there with Omega personally, and not at any point when I wore the new Autavias did I think it didn’t feel as good as a Planet Ocean or something similar.

    Thank you very much, the clock deserves it. I never noticed Tag Heuer, but this limited edition Autavia has stolen my heart, and that in my collection there is only Rolex and Omega
