Heuer introduced the Autavia wristwatch collection in 1962 and was produced until to 1986. The dashboard timers with the same name were produced from 1933 to 1958. The name "Autavia" is derived from the words Automobile and Aviation. This name was indicative of the purpose these chronographs were intended for. The Autavia GMT 2446 manual chronograph was introduced in the late 60’s and several variations were made with differences in cases, dials, pushers and hands.
This particular piece is a ‘transitional’ 3rd generation 2446C with fluted pushers, snap back and silver hands (no red inserts).
