Footnotes

  • The Argentinean Airforce was supplied with batches of Heuer watches during the late 1960's and 1970's. The case differs in size and construction from the earlier Autavia and a new so-called compressor case with snap on back was introduced, sealing the case from differences of internal and external pressure. The crown is larger and Heuer signed and it has larger chronograph pushers with a fluted design. As these were tool watches, very few have survived in pristine condition. This one has its original bezel, dial and hands and is correctly signed at the back of the case with the Air force crest and the issue number 805.
