Why We Love It
The history of watches and motorsports are inextricably linked.
That connection is due in no small part to Heuer - and the Carrera is at the top of many a wish list. More understated in appearance than its Panda dialed brethren, this Ref. 3647NC sits at a comfortable 35mm and hugs the wrist with its lithe straight lugs. The jet matte black dial is punctuated by richly aged tritium elements and crisp printing in the painted logo and subsidiary registers.
If you are looking for a classic, mid-century chronograph, with racing pedigree and oodles of charm - this Heuer Carrera is your watch.
Now all you need is your driving gloves and a track... and maybe a race car...
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.
For a watch designed in the 1960s, the Carrera remains a stunner, proving 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. At 36mm, the case wears extremely well on the modern wrist, its long beveled lugs making it feel a bit beefier while still slipping easily under a cuff.
These early Carreras were produced in a variety of styles with a range of dials, but "all-black-everything" continues to be the most regularly demanded of the bunch. This particular Carrera, a Reference 3647N, is powered by the robust manually-wound Valjoux 92 chronograph movement, with double subsidiary register layout. The Valjoux 92 is a derivative of the triple register Valjoux 72 that we all know and love, with similar architecture and quality, simply without an hour register. These Valjoux 92-equipped Carreras have a supremely clean look and feel, and wear brilliantly on the modern wrist.
