  • Catalogue Essay

    Heuer has always been associated with motorsports and precision timing, and the legendary Carrera is perhaps the archetypal motorsport Heuer. The present watch, a reference 2447T, is notable for being an early example, lacking the "T" on the hour register at six o'clock. Most attractive is the two-tone dial with a silvered tachymetric scale featuring large red numerals, another feature found only on earlier models.

    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.
