    Nah, it's an 11630 "Shauntavia" I think, a bunch of these we see with Arabic numerals were sold to the Kenyan Air Force

    Interesting. I was trying to figure out the Arabic numerals combined with the hands.
    Does the case back have a KAF stamp? IMG_5951.jpeg
    Am going to toast that project....from a 11630 cousin:

    Doesn't look like it there. Could be the photo but I don't think this particular one went to the KAF

    yup to rip straight off hodinkee ...
    The "Shauntavia" gets its strange nickname from a Heuer collector, who was the first to suggest that the lumed Arabic numerals were correct for this unusual Autavia. Incidentally, all the Autavia to ever come with numerals instead of applied indexes have a military past. One was adopted by the German army and the two others by Kenya's Air Force,

    . Not all Shauntavia went through the Kenyan army, but those which did have military engravings on the caseback, in the form of "KAF" and the ID number.

    Oddly the NON Kaf seem to be rarer (as in i can't find any) possible surplus? unbranded ? (engraved) leftovers? they were never catalogued by heuer for sale general public purchase blah blah..

    would be surprised if it was a little kenyan "moonlighting" involved =)

    Sure it's not an 1163 Viceroy?

    EDIT - nix this.... wrong hands and no metal indices so it can't be a Viceroy. Carry on!

    7734 (date)

    Most of the Shauntavia are manual-wind, so I wonder if the dial was placed on yours - not sure if this is possible due to differences in the placement of dial feet, but the 12-hour / 30-minute / date window all line up in the correct spots.

    not possible dial placement is too different (i looked into it because i found a NOS dial but it would mean applying the Automatic chronograph and ultimately it would not be.. well original) model IS all original and the 7734 has no "automatic chronograph"

    Shaun told us the story of his three “Shauntavias”. While we might have expected Shaun to post a “Shauntavia” (or two), who could have imagined that he would show us these three rare watches, issued by the Kenyan Air Force, each one in its “as found” condition. [For the newcomers here, the “Shauntavias” are distinguished by their Arabic numerals, placed radially, as popularized by our own Shaun Wainstein.] I mean, how many of us even knew that Kenya had an Air Force or that their pilots were using these distinctive looking Autavias!!

    I know. I was just trying to tie up the hands, and the dial and the movement. Please don't cry. Am sure the curve ball is the hands.
