  • Catalogue Essay

    The Heuer Carrera's name originates from the "Carrera Panamericana", a highly dangerous and thrilling car race which takes place in Mexico. At the time of inception, Jack Heuer's main goal was to create absolute legibility when timing car races.

    The present watch, playfully dubbed 'reverse panda' due to its black dial and white registers, features the rare tachymeter ring to the dial. The reference is thus 2447 NST. Displaying "Swiss" only at 6 o'clock, it is notably a later generation version. It is distinguished by its impressive condition; all luminous dots remain intact and there are hardly any signs of aging on the dial.

    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.
