  • Catalogue Essay

    This PVD-coated stainless steel watch is large with a clear and easily readable dial with an arc of five discs running from the 10 to the 1 positions, which act as a countdown to the start of the race. Racers are given 10 and 5 minute warnings, at the first warning, the skipper presses the case button at the one position, beginning the countdown. Five blue spheres appear each representing one minute. As the minute passes the sphere change to orange, when five minutes have passed, a second canon is sounded and the orange spheres begin to change color to black. The third and final canon starts the race and now the five spheres are black.

    The present watch is in excellent overall condition and an attractive model, that is masculine and wearable even if one should not own a yacht.

  • 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.
