Benrus ref 73463 “Dato Autavia” circa 1974

$2,850.00

Very interesting Benrus manual wind “poor man’s Dato Autavia model same 73463 case reference # as the Heuer Autavia, powered by Valjoux 7734 movement, and with original black dial with orange accents as the similar Heuer model. Jeff Stein, in his authoritative “On the Dash” site, shows a Zodiac version of this watch, but not this Benrus version. Watch is in overall good condition, clean original dial, aged luminous dots at quarters and patina’d luminous bars adjacent to applied silver indexes. Rotating elapsed time bezel shows wear evident in the photos. Watch is in good operating condition keeping good time and with chronograph functions working properly and returning to 0, but we have not serviced the watch and are offering it as shown, without our usual 1 year warrantee. Of course guaranteed genuine. Fitted with a great looking finely perforated rubber, kevlar looking strap with subtly orange side accents. A great looking and perhaps as yet undocumented model.
