1974 Benrus Dato Ref. 73463

The Benrus Dato Ref. 73463 is sometimes referred to as the "Poor Mans Autavia" as it features the same case used in the ever popular Heuer Autavia and the same design and features found in the Heuer Autavia including the same 73463 case reference # as the Heuer Autavia, the manual wind Valjoux 7734 movement, and with original black dial with orange accents as the similar Heuer model.

The striking high visibility orange hands paired with the stunning dial make this an eye catching piece. The white sundials jump off the watch and provide a functional yet stunning look when worn on the wrist! This would make an interesting addition to any collection and provides the vintage look and feel from the golden era of watches that we love so much here at Craft & Tailored!
