Heuer Autavia 1163V Viceroy

Heuer Autavia 1163V Viceroy

The other week, I had the opportunity to wear a Heuer Autavia 1163V “Viceroy” for a few days, borrowed from Crown & Caliber’s Heuer 100 auction. An iconic watch with a great story, they are highly sought after, though still “relatively” affordable as far as the vintage market goes. We’ve covered Autavias before, though an earlier model, the 2446C. This specific version of the Autavia, the 1163V, came out in 1972 and was available for just $88 through a promotion via Viceroy cigarettes. It differs in a few ways from other 1163’s, namely featuring a tachymeter bezel and full numerals on the hour sub-dial, but the general design and coloring remained the same.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
