Not quite. This is a bullhead, with the pushers on top of the case:
Yes indeed! Heuer Cal 12 movement.Here is the interesting story of the cal 11, the world's first automatic chronograph movement (though Zenith would like to disagree):http://www.onthedash.com/articles/Project99PartsOneTwo.pdfThe Cal 11/12/15 are cool to look at, as they are a movement familiy of modular chronographs with a micro rotor.

Take a pic I have a manual Autavia with Siffert coloring, that is my definite favourite. Cal 72, so it's basically a vintage Daytona (no, it's not ).And a silver dialled auto.

Please post I love Autavias, got three of them ...
Dug out the Jo Siffert today
