    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.

Ref. 1550 SG
Heuer has had a long history of delivering military watches to the air forces of numerous nations. Reference 1550 SG is known to have been made for the German Bundeswehr in the 1970s.This watch was created to be an army pilot’s true companion. The design, dial and case allow for practical visibility, comfort and reliability even throughout the most strenuous of missions. Whilst other watch manufactures opted for an encircled letter "T" for tritium on their dials, Heuer acknowledged the presence of radioactive material through the use of an encircled "3H" at 6 o'clock - this is because hydrogen-3 is the chemical compound for radioactive luminous material. Found in superb overall condition and the property of a prominent collector.
