Hodinkee Post: Solving the Mystery of the Early Heuer "Kingon" Autavias
It's been a mystery that has intrigued serious Heuer collectors for years: what was the origin of the early ("first execution") two-register Autavia that says "Kingon" on the dial and caseback instead of Heuer? There are 6 (or possibly 7) known examples of this unusual watch, which is essentially a variant on the first execution Heuer Autavia (like the one sold by Antiquorum went for $25,000 in September ). Well, here we've got the scoop on just what's behind that Kingon signature and exactly what you should know about these rare early Autavias.
