  • Catalogue Essay

    The Heuer Camaro manufactured in the mid to late 60's is named after the Chevrolet Camaro. Heuer officially launched the Camaro in the 1968 and was never sold with an automatic movement and ceased production in 1972. There are three various Camaro designs known. The present lot, which is known as the Camaro 12, features three subsidiary registers. The Camaro 30 is fitted with two registers and Camaro 45 is powered by the Valjoux 92 movement.

    The present watch is a very appealing example with a dark brown dial, white hand fitted to the subsidiary seconds and orange hands to both registers and chronograph, which is all correct and gives the watch a very unique and unusual look.

  • Artist Biography

    Heuer

    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.
