Actually, my third Autavia GMT 16630. Well, I let that amazing NOS example go because I couldn’t bring myself to wear it, but I do love these watches and knew at some point I’d buy another. Yesterday I met up with a few guys from TZ, and took the opportunity to complete a trade with my old mucker Simon for this lovely thing. It looks more vintage than my previous examples but the dial is unmarked and Abel Court has given the case a light refinish. Aside from that it’s had a movement service from TAG so it really is in lovely nick.
Aside from a new watch (and some new – very expensive – boots) it was nice to hook up with everyone, ogle some watches, have a very good lunch and enjoy a beer or two.
