  • Catalogue Essay

    Early Heuer chronographs were designed to be very simple and easy to ready timing machines. The dial was made to be very legible and easy for the driver or navigator to operate. The dial is very clean and the markers are very bright. The scale for marking the 1/10th of a second also serves as a tension ring and is located at the very outer part of the dial. The present example is an early Carrera that has been kept in very honest and original condition.

  • 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.
