1970s Heuer Camaro 7843 T exotic dial
In 1968, Heuer introduced the Camaro, a tribute to the legendary car of the same name. It would adapt an entirely new cushion-shaped case, the brand’s first move away from traditional round cases. The Camaro was popular with racers, with most models offered with a tachymeter scale on the dial. The cushion shape is to be considered as the forerunner of the square Monaco.
The Heuer Camaro line is the quintessential 70s chronograph. This cushion case is uber-cool, uncommon this days, thus a must-have. Among the various models, we always had a preference for the exotic Camaro, especially with this deep blue panda look and the dashes of orange brought by the hands.
This chronograph is built on the Valjoux 7732 caliber, manually wound and featuring a date, displayed at 6. This piece is rare, in great condition and is a superb example of a 1970s Heuer chronograph. This reference was a transition reference, produced to a little more than 1000 examples, before the launch of the 73443.
