Heuer Dato 3147S
Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
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 late 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.
This particular model, a Reference 3147S, features a single subsidiary register with a 45-Minute counter set against a silver sunburst dial, offset by a date aperature at 9:00. This model dates from the late 1960s, and is powered by a manual winding Landeron Calibre 189 movement with 17 Jewels, signed by Heuer. Its case is in incredibly strong condition, and judging by the crisp edges and incredibly sharp lugs, possibly unpolished. The luminescent plots on the hour markers and hands have aged evenly, and the inner rehaut and dial are crisp and clean. Early Dato-model Carreras are rare birds, and this one is a terrific honest example - by far the nicest example we've seen.
