  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 1963, the Carrera designed by Jack Heuer was brought to the market with the vision to create a chronograph with outstanding legibility and clean aesthetics. Like the Porsche Carrera, the Heuer Carrera ushered in a new era for Heuer and became one of the brand’s most famous designs. In the 1980s, Heuer was bought by Technique Avant Garde (TAG) and paved the way for re-editions of the Carrera in 1990s. Well-received by Heuer collectors, the present example in yellow gold Ref. CS 3140 inspired by the Carrera of 1964 remains faithful to its origin. Sized at 36mm, the re-edition features the Heuer only logo which is loved by the community. The three registered chronograph features matching gold hour markers and hands, and paired with blue accents on the outer track. The tritium is further indicated with a T above SWISS just the vintage predecessors. Powering the ref. CS3140 is the Lemania 1873, the base movement of Omega Speedmaster cal.861. True to its roots beating at 21,600vph with a 40 hours power reserve, the present example is further accompanied with a guarantee and accessories.
