Heuer is generally considered the industry leader in sports timers and chronographs. Of their range of automatic chronographs, their Autavia models were considered the professional racer's choice. In 1972, Heuer ran a promotion with Viceroy cigarettes, and the "Viceroy Autavia" was born. Distinguishing marks included brushed steel hands with red accents, 12 numerals in the hour counter, and a tachymeter bezel. An exceptional piece with great history and style.
