    The bond between vintage watches and vintage cars is easy to make, but when you speak about Heuer, it is part of the brand’s history. Jack Heuer’s passion for driving and his experience of the professional racing world were behind the development of two of his most famous models: the Autavia and the Carrera.
    When Jack Heuer was racing, he would have used equipment similar to the present lot mounted on the dashboard. The following timing device is composed of three elements. The first dial is a late generation Master-Time 8 days, a time only with a bi-directional bezel. The second, a Sebring retailed by Meister, was actually the less popular amongst rallying aficionados. Despite its split-second function, European race drivers preferred the Monte-Carlo. This is the third timing tool on this plate. The Monte-Carlo was a favorite because this chronograph would display seconds, minutes and hours on a window placed at 6 o’clock.
    In excellent overall condition, this timing equipment would perfectly complement the dashboard of a vintage Porsche 911 and could be a precious companion during your next classic rally!

    This iconic chronograph manufacturer has a long tradition of precision timekeeping. As early as 1882, founder Edouard Heuer held a patent for a chronograph watch; in 1887, he received a patent for an oscillating pinion, which is still in use today. These specialized timepieces have been at the heart of the firm's success, enabling the brand to be chosen as early timekeepers for the Olympics. In 1969, the company introduced their first automatic chronograph watch, the Monaco Heuer, which celebrated the Monaco Grand Prix. Other key chronograph models include the Autavia and the Carrera, all of which having become iconic models of the firm.
