Introduction

Incredible sexy chronograph from the sixties in ultimate condition. Not a Carrera and thus priced in a way friendlier manner, giving you so much bang for your buck. The watch has round pushers and a screw-down casebook with the sticker still on the back. We are in love with the aging of the tritium in the hands and on the dial. The orange chronograph hand isn't bad either. Furthermore it comes with its original box and tag. The watch is running properly and is in all working order, however, due to its mint condition, we choose to not service this watch but upon request by the buyer a full revision can be arranged. This piece is one out of four never worn vintage Heuers that we offer from the collection of a gentleman Heuer fan.

Description

Heuer CarreraThe Carrera first saw light in 1963 and was Heuer's first line of watches with its own name. Named after the motor race ‘Le Carrera Panamericana Rally Mexico’. This chronograph was an evolution in terms of design and branding, under the supervision of CEO Jack Heuer. The Carerra is a sports watch, more specifically a racing tool watch, which was being used in Formula one races by Ferrari. This link between the Carrera and motor sports evermore cemented its presence in the market as a professional yet very stylish timepiece. Ever since the launch of this model we have had the pleasure to see so many variations enter the commercial market.
