A nod to both the automotive and aviation worlds, TAG Heuer‘s legendary Autavia has long been coveted by collectors as a symbol of the golden age of motor racing. Now, 55 years after its 1962 introduction, the beloved chronograph is being resurrected in the form of a neo-retro nod to the original. The winner of 2016’s Autavia Cup campaign (in which TAG lovers voted for the reissue of one of sixteen possible timepieces), the modern release not only sports a proprietary Heuer-02 self-winding movement and updated functions, but pays homage to the old Autavia “Rindt” — a model favored by famous F1 driver Jochen Rindt. The result is a classy tribute to the OG chronograph and one that comes complete with a 42mm steel case, panda dial, and Superluminova indices.

For more on the new Autavia, head on over to TAG Heuer’s website and look for the watch to be available soon at TAG dealers with either a brown calf skin strap or a polished steel bracelet for $5,150 and $5,300 USD, respectively.
