LITERATURE This watch is illustrated in the Heuer Autavia Book by Richard Crosthwaite & Paul Gavin on pages 196-197 COMMENTS This watch is a truly beautiful example and it is the exact same watch as the one illustrated in the Heuer Autavia Book on Pages 196 & 197 It's in fantastic condition with an untouched dial with brilliant colours, original hands and a fine clean bezel. The Arabic 73663 is from a family of four variants: The Siffert Colours The Villeneuve The Arabic The Bund All four shared the serial number range 199XXX-204XXX; which essentially means that only about 1250 Arabic 73663 watches were produced by Heuer, of which perhaps only 10% - 120 pieces - may have survived to this day.
