  • Catalogue Essay

    This Mareographe from the 1970s was produced for the French speaking market. Its name comes from the conjunction of Marée which means tide in French and Graph which means writing in Greek so literally, this watch presents itself as the tool watch to time the tides.
    The present watch also distinguishes itself by the signature found on the dial. When most of the Seafarer or Solunograph models were retailed by Abercrombie & Fitch or Orvis, a very small portion of the production was kept by Heuer and sold under its own name. So rare were the latter that less than 15 other examples have surfaced until now.
    Presented today in very attractive overall condition, we cannot fail to notice the superb metallic graphite grey dial perfectly preserved thanks to the compressor case that offered 100 meter waterproofness.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1860

    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.
