    I checked with the authorized dealer of Tag Heuer.

    It seems that the sales of Autavia WBE5111.FC8267 was stopped before its release in Japan.

    Yes I remember. Was just thinking that it could have been different for those who bought the grey with steel bezel if that one did go out of production

    Interesting. I wonder if it was stopped everywhere. Now I come to think of it, when I saw the whole range at a boutique viewing just after release I don't think that one was there.

    At least it was not sold in Japan.
    However, a few may have been sold.

    The launch time in Japan is set one month later than the other models, and Tag accepted pre-orders with the bronze model.

    It seems that all reservation of Isograph bronze and steel bezel watch was cancelled when the sale was cancelled.

    The shop staff didn't mention anything about it, so I don't know.

    Watches with stainless steel bezels are very attractive looks for us, but it may be because there were few orders at the reservation.

    In any case, there was no Autavia WBE5111.FC8267 after TAG HEUER removed the isograph and resumed sales.

    I guess if they didn't get much interest it made sense to drop it... I wonder if any are still out there - and uber rare!

    In general it still feels like the new Autavias dont get much attention or love online. I wonder if they sell good.

    Not the foggiest... they don't seem to stock them in places like Beaverbrooks, Goldsmiths etc. Perhaps a little too niche?

    Just wanted to show some timegrapher results from my Isograph. Maximum deviation is 4 seconds/day in all positions. I think the Isograph hairspring is really beneficial to chronometry. I hope Tag Heuer releases more watches with this technology.

    Watching from the video. Could it be Watchfinder got it confused and still thinking that Chronometer Autavia still having silicon hairspring ?

    Just watched the video. Yes, he keeps going on about the Isograph and talked about the hairspring, but the watch in the video just isn't, is it?!
