Back in 2022 TAG Heuer celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Autavia collection with a series of new editions. Now they’ve released this new “TAG Heuer Autavia Flyback Chronometer” in a near all black edition, without any publicity. It almost seems like a trend among several brands, as the modes of distribution and creating awareness keep finding alternative ways of reaching their target audience. But be that as it may these watches are still worth taking a closer look at here.The 42mm case is made in stainless-steel with vertical brushed surfaces and casebands, but some contrasting polished accents. Mounted to the case is a black ceramic bidirectional bezel with a coin-edged rim.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition case back that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It comes equipped with a high-performance skeletonised rotor and a column wheel with the red colored “CAL HEUER 02 SWISS MADE” engraving.It comes equipped with two distinctive knurled based mushroom-style pushers to operate the chronograph functions. In between them is an extra-large screw-down crown with a knurled circumference for a reinforced grip, and adorned by the TAG Heuer logo. All topped with a domed scratch-proof sapphire crystal. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).Time is exhibited on a black dial with large Arabic numerals, followed by a sloped flange with a ring of white printed minutes/seconds markings. There are three sub-dials: a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a 12-hour counter at the 9 o’clock position, both in black with a snailed interior and sloped flanges. The recessed small seconds dial at 6 o’clock differs by not having a snailed or sloped design. Plus its black hue makes it harmoniously blend in with the overall dark color-scheme. The central sword-style hands, Arabic numerals, and few hour index markers have all been fitted with a green luminescent filing, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a date window at 6 o’clock that intersects with the sub-seconds sub-dial.
