New arrival...

Heuer Autavia 2446 " Jochen Rindt ". I did a review on this watch June 8, 2014. Seems everybody wants one these days. It's difficult to explain how this happens but the fact famous F1 driver Jochen Rindt wore this particular model has a lot to do with it. We saw it happen with the Autavia 1163 Siffert. When that model became really expensive collectors seemed to move to another model with a racing heritage. One year ago it was possible to find a good 2246 for a price between 2500 and 4000 euros. Now a really good one can cost you up to 6k. I bought this watch for a reasonable price but the bezel has seen better days. Finding a mint bezel for this watch? I tried, it's almost impossible.
