1967 Le Mans Race Imagery
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is forever imprinted in the minds of the watch-loving public. An iconic one-day French automotive race begun in 1923, it is the world’s oldest active endurance racing event and has hosted international superstar drivers. Names such as Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx, and Dan Gurney are no doubt familiar to racing aficionados, but with 1971’s Le Mans starring none other than Steve McQueen, the race — and the Heuer watch on McQueen’s wrist — reached a worldwide audience.
This incredible racing magazine image from the 1967 iteration of Le Mans — the 35th Grand Prix of Endurance — commemorates an incredible day of racing from June of that year: Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt became the first and only all-American victors when their Fork Mk IV took home first place, placing the Ferrari team in 2nd and 3rd places. Though no actual watches are depicted in this striking photograph, it dates from a legendary time when every driver worth his salt had a proper mechanical chronograph strapped to his wrist. Close your eyes, and you can all but hear the engines roar.
