    Legibility was the most important factor for Jack Heuer when he masterminded the cult model "Carrera". Fitted with the famous Valjoux 7730, the present watch is fitted with a "NST" dial, featuring a black background with white two-subsidiary registers. The watch furthermore displays a tachometer scale, which is quite rare for this reference.

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.
