    The name Carrera originates from the 'Carrera Panamerica', a thrilling car race which takes place in Mexico. Jack Heuer's main goal when creating the Carrera was to have something absolutely legible when timing car races. The present example is an extremely clean and easy to read chronograph from the early days of the Carrera.

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.
