Arguably, no watchmaker is as synonymous with motor sport as Heuer. This Autavia model is known as the ‘Andretti’ in honour of Mario Andretti, the legendary Italian-American racing driver whose incredible career spanned three decades and wore an identical model throughout the 1960s at the height of his fame.

The watch features as lot 940 in our Saleroom 2 Antique & Collectables Auction this Saturday 9th April.
