  • Catalogue Essay

    Built to time race-car events, this sporty yet tasteful watch fully displays Heuer’s genetic code, an element that made Heuer a popular brand among racetrack aficionados.

    Introduced in 1963, the Carrera reference 2447 is one of Heuer’s most iconic designs. Over the course of production, a variety of dials were made available; panda, reverse panda, with or without tachymeter scale. The size of subdials and shape of hour markers also changed over the time.

    The present lot was produced in 1966 and the dial has “SWISS” marked inside the hours sub counter at 6 o'clock and having the letter “T” indicating the use of tritium. Preserve in great condition and has nicely aged with an attractive patina on the luminous over the years.

    We sincerely thank Tag Heuer for kindly supplying us with information from their archives.

  • 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.
