1970s Heuer Carrera 1153N Third execution Cal.12
In 1963, Heuer introduced the Heuer Carrera, the chronograph that captures the romance and danger of racing. Jack Heuer borrowed the name from the Carrera Panamericana road race, a border-to-border race held in Mexico from 1950 to 1954. Suitable for track, sport or dress, the Heuer Carrera included models with triple calendars and cases in steel or gold.
Aesthetically, this Carrera piece is charming and decisive. The combination of its midnight purple dial, its non re-lumed tritium indexes creates a special harmony. A harmony that is altered by the bright orange central hand and the powerful angular lugs that convey a certain strength of character. It is dressed with its signed crown located on the left side of the case and two fluted chronograph pushers.
Mechanically, this Carrera is driven by the calibre 12 with automatic mechanical winding. This caliber is known to be robust, precise and relatively rare.
