Manual mechanical Valjoux 72 -- steel -- without original box, papers or strap
The Heuer Carrera turned 50 years old last year, and we needn’t say much about the model’s history, importance, and iconic stature -- if you’re looking at this, you probably already know.
The Carrera was one of Jack Heuer’s most passionate projects, and his design ethos for this watch can be summed up in one word: legibility. Jack wanted a watch that was stylish and functional, a watch that gives you everything you need and nothing you don’t. The result is the indisputably gorgeous Carrera.
For a watch designed in the late 1960s, the Carrera remains a stunner 50 years later, and this speaks to the brilliance of Jack’s design philosophy. A clean dial never goes out of style, and it makes the Carrera an easy watch to dress up or down. The 36 mm case wears surprisingly large due to the long bevelled lugs, and the size lets it slip easily under a cuff.
This particular Carrera is powered by the robust manually-wound Valjoux 72 chronograph movement, and features a triple subsidiary register layout on an ‘N’ (Noir) black dial. Straight from a carefully curated private collection, this example is an absolute stunner in excellent aesthetic and mechanical condition. With values for early manual-winding Heuer chronographs on the rise, you won’t want to miss out on snatching up one of these beauties before they go stratospheric like their Rolex brethren!
