The name "Camaro" was inspired by Chevrolet’s Camaro sports car, which was used as pace car from 1967 to 1969 at the famous American "Indianapolis 500" race. Heuer wanted to get into the American market and attract a new clientele - young "petrolheads" who would go for a watch with the name "Camaro". The model was produced from 1968 to 1972.
This Heuer Camaro has a gently faded "tropical dial"; the evenly patinated black face of the watch makes the timepiece a genuine rarity. The Camaro is fitted with the legendary hand-wound Valjoux 72 chronograph movement. The typical cushion-shaped case was introduced by Heuer in the late 1960s as "The newest shape from Switzerland" - a stylish and unique piece among the vintage motorsports chronographs!
