  • Catalogue Essay

    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 available; panda, reverse panda, with or without tachymeter scale. The size of subdials and shape of hour markers also changed.

    The present watch bearing a 78xxx serial number belongs to the so-called later first execution with standard case back (or slotted) and black dial with black registers. It has been seen in the Heuer catalogues in 1966-1967, only 3 years after the launch of the first Carrera chronograph. The engraved “EWD” on the movement means that the watch was imported into the U.S. market and most probably sold.

  • 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.
