  • Catalogue Essay

    This Heuer Carrera 11535 has a very interesting story. The signatures have been removed at 12 o'clock and replaced with the word' Uhrmacherschule Solothurn', which translates from German into English 'Watchmaking School Solothurn'. Located in the north of Switzerland, Solothurn is a German speaking town. The watchmaking school trained young apprentices to fit these watches with the new caliber, the Hamilton 12, which was made in conjunction with Breitling and Heuer.

    The present watch is a historically interesting example that has been kept in an immaculate state of preservation.

  • 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.
