Why We Love it

In any color or configuration, the Heuer Carrera Reference 2447 with its clean lines and perfect proportions are elegant and irresistible.

From its very inception, the Carrera was meant to break the mold set by Heuer’s earlier chronographs. Like the Autavia, the first watch that Jack Heuer had a hand in creating, the Carrera was intended to be a racing watch. But rather than rely on the tried-and-true to create the Carrera, Jack Heuer sought to create something entirely new, drawing inspiration from the work of masters of modern design.

In his student years, Jack Heuer had been inspired by the revolutionary work of Charles-Édouard Jeanneret. History would know Jeanneret as Le Corbusier, the pioneer of modern architecture (and himself a native of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the sleepy Swiss village in which Heuer’s factory was located). Le Corbusier’s concern—one might almost say obsession—with functionality was apparent in his work, which became known for its minimalism.

This  example, a tone-on-tone Reference 2447S, features a sunburst silver Tritium dial with speckling throughout, lightly patinated indices and a matching handset. An early variant, this particular timepiece has seen use and wear in keeping with its sporting heritage, something we all can admire.

Taken as a cohesive whole, the Carrera’s elegant minimalism—like Le Corbusier’s designs—remains evergreen.
