1960s Heuer Carrera ref. 2447S 1st execution with silver sunburst dial
Before joining the Tag group, Heuer was famous for its sports chronographs, showing strong relationships with the racing world, especially in the 60s and the 70s.
The history of the Carrera goes back to 1963, imagined by the genius Jack Heuer, and produced over a relatively short period until 1980. It takes its name from the dangerous Mexican professional race “Carrera Panamericana”, a real icon of the time and initially stopped in 1955.
This particular reference is derived from the first edition of the superbly executed Carrera three-register chronograph of 1964, and is further powered by the iconic Valjoux 72 hand-wound chronograph movement. Aesthetically, it is nicely composed of a silver sunburst dial dressed by batons hands in a 36mm steel case.
The particularity of this example is the absolute minty condition. The case is unpolished, yet still shiny and in top shape, the dial is as beautiful as it gets. The watch is 100% original and we are proud to say it is one of the best, if not the best, examples we had in hands.
