Heuer Camaro Tropical Dial

Heuer Camaro Tropical Dial

In our opinion, the Camaro may be the most under-appreciated vintage model in the lineup of chronographs from Heuer.  Often overshadowed by the Carrera, Monaco, and Autavia in the minds of collectors, the Camaro is every bit as functional, beautiful, and wonderfully retro, evoking the era of 60s and 70s motorsports brilliantly.

The example we have presented here is without a doubt one of the rarest and most interesting in the world, featuring an incredible tropical dial (faded from its original black).  With even patination across the dial, hands, and lume, this is quite simply a stunner!  Powering the timepiece is the legendary Valjoux 72 manually winding chronograph movement, with triple register layout, featuring a 30 minute counter, 12 hour counter, and subsidiary seconds register, with a central chronograph sweep hand.  All of this is tucked into a svelte 37mm square cushion case design which was touted by Heuer in the late 1960s as "The newest shape from Switzerland".

While it's "big brother" (the Monaco) might have stolen the spotlight in the collector market, in our opinion you'd be hard pressed to find a legitimate vintage motorsports chronograph with more style and charisma.  And just look at that tropical dial...


Steel Case is approximately 37mm (excluding the crown).  Heuer Reference 7220NT.

Overall condition: Unpolished original case is in very good condition for its age, showing no notable blemishes. Original dial has faded to an incredible tropical chocolate brown.  Lume shows patination due to age.  All original hands.  Original Heuer signed crown.

Includes Dark Brown Distressed Leather Strap and two 20mm Crown & Buckle Nylon Straps
