    As some already have pointed out, the strap size is 21mm which complicates the strap hunt usually. The Scandinavian TH agent has posted this picture a few times, the classical Monaco strap but on the Autavia instead. I think it looks great and seriously considers picking one up although the size is not "perfect".

    I've seen that one :thumbsup: for me it's a perfect fit.

    But the official strap will cost me arm and leg :oops: and i need to lay low for a while.

    On different topic, i think it will looks great with black strap as well as the brown like the original one.

    Hi guys, quick question. Upon watching Youtuber Bruce Willis got Oris Aquis replica, it brings me to paranoid level about my Autavia.

    Attached is the picture of the case back from ablogtowatch and relojesexclusivos. On the ablogtowatch it is written "waterproof guaranteed 330ft under water. While the other one is Automatic 100 meters.

    Mine is the same with Automatic 100 meters one.

    Why is there difference in here ?

    I am contacting my trusted salesperson that work in the boutique to help me check, but he can only help me tomorrow as he is off work today

    In the meantime, anyone can help to scratch my curiosity ?

    Coincidentally i tried to check the warranty using online (http://tag.hr/warranty) and the page just wouldn't load. "Sorry but we are currently improving this page. Thank you for your patience." Anyone else also experiencing the same ?

    Thanks for all the help in advance !

    EDIT: Did i mentioned Bruce Willis ? Sorry it was meant to be Bruce Williams the youtuber not Bruce Willis the actor !

    Hi Otto
    My Siffert is exactly the same as the ‘automatic 100 meters’. Your looks genuine all the way.

    Haven't seen a convincing fake of the Autavia yet, especially one with an authentic looking Heuer 02!

    My guess is that the ABTW one is a prototype before release version

    Thanks. That's reassuring. I'll just wait for the authentification tomorrow by the authorized dealer. :thumbsup:

    I think in ft and inches so yes that’s my preference too, my wife knows what a yard is, but a metre::confused2::, it’s a yard plus your thumb but no.::facepalm1::

    1 - could be that when the dial was changed to better reflect the hashes on the 30 minute counter, the caseback was refined.

    2 (and more likely) - please note that the ABTW example is indeed a pre-production example. Notice the reference is XCBE and the serial number begins with XX....

    BTW - loving that 844. It's seen some life, and it's taken it and is still going strong. That's quailty.
