Why We Love it

As far as we're concerned, a vintage Heuer Carrera is about as cool a chronograph as you can get, featuring amazing vintage looks, true Motorsports pedigree and a design originally penned by the man himself: Mr. Jack Heuer. The Carrera got its name (in 1963) from the legendary cross-isthmus road race in Mexico, known as La Carrera Panamericana. At least one other noteworthy international brand also borrowed this name for one of their products (hint...it has four wheels and the engine in the back).

Early Carreras were powered by manually-winding chronograph movements, but with the advent of the automatic chronograph in 1969 (also pioneered by Heuer), production began shifting towards automatic in a serious way. The Carrera was among the first models to be treated to an overhaul, and a bevy of different executions began flooding out of Heuer's factory, and of course the model remains an automatic chronograph to this day. This model, Reference 73653N, dates from approximately 1974, and is one of the last models to be offered in manual-winding form.  Featuring the tried and true Calibre 7736 movement by Valjoux, this is one of the most robust and reliable manually-wound chronograph movements ever designed, and it gives this Carrera a great combination of 60s technology and 70s looks!

With its brilliant blue sunburst dial, white subsidiary registers and outer tachymetre ring, this particular example is a true stunner.  With values lagging a bit behind the earliest executions, these 70s Carreras offer a tremendous bang for the buck, and honest Motorsports heritage to boot.  Sized perfectly at just a hair under 39mm and fitted to a high-grade Horween strap, this Carrera is one you won't want to miss!
