We are proud to offer you this excellent HEUER CARRERA vintage Red Tachy Ref.2446 in steel with non HEUER steel elastic bracelet.
The Heuer Carrera was launched end of 1963. Carrera means competition and was named after the Carrera Panamericana a dangerous racing endeavor through Mexico.
This example is an unpolished survivor from the first batch characterized by a unique polyback case. The Tachymeter dial has color-changed over time from white into a pleasing Egg shell tone.
On the early Carreras serialnumbers were engraved in a larger size.
Further an Ed Heuer signed innerback case combined with the Heuer-Leonidas bridge are good indicators to date the watch to 1964.
Prior 1965 the crown was unsigned and the little T for tritium was not yet mandatory to be shown on the dial.
This Carrera is a historically important timepiece ticking all the boxes ...
