The new pieces – the CARRERA (39mm) Calibre 18 Automatic Chronograph (pictured) and the CARRERA (39mm) Calibre 6, COSC certified – capture the heritage of vintage Heuer, but with a unique and very modern twist.

CARRERA (39mm) Calibre 18 Automatic Chronograph
The vintage look and shape of this new black and silver chronograph, is also based on Jack Heuer’s Carrera design. That makes it look like the original black and white Panda, a collector’s favourite with the black chronograph counter at nine o’clock and three o’clock. It is not a regular chronograph, it has a telemeter scale on the flange, an old tool imagined for military, to measure distance of artillery fire, based on the speed of sound. Now you can use during a thunderstorm to know how far from you it is! No other recent piece has this neat feature.

This new silver and blue three-hand piece, with a touch of red on the flange’s “60”, the Heuer logo and the second hand, looks like a colored tribute to the original 1963-Carrera design. The blue small second counter matches the blue vintage perforated leatherstrap. The Heuer logo on the clasp of the strap personifies the style up to the tiniest details. The silver, blue and red combination gives to this watch a very retro-trendy look.
