Heuer "Carrera"

, Case No. 54162, Cal. Val. 72, 36 mm, circa 1960

A rare vintage wristband chronograph with 30 min. and 12h counter and red tachy scale

Case: steel, screw back. Dial: silvered.

The most flamboyant feature of this Carrera model is the red tachymeter scale, which sets it apart from other vintage Carrera watches. The "Swiss" logo sits inside the lower chronograph subdial and not - as usual - near the edge of the dial at 6 o’clock. The watch is fitted with the vintage chronograph movement calibre Valjoux 72, which was also used for many years in the Rolex Daytona. Today the Heuer Carrera is a true classic among wristwatches and has increased considerably in value in recent years.

Jack Heuer launches the "Carrera" as a tribute to this exciting race "Carrera Panamericana Rally" of the 1950's: the first chronograph with a pure and functional dial design featuring a wide dial opening and a 1/5th of a second scale on the flange. This model rapidly becomes the watch of the champions and a best seller worldwide.
Case: very good
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, capable of running, cleaning recommended
