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 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.
These early Carreras were produced in a variety of styles with a range of dials, but "all-black-everything" continues to be the most regularly demanded of the bunch. This particular Carrera, a Reference 3647N, is powered by the robust manually-wound Valjoux 92 chronograph movement, with double subsidiary register layout. The Valjoux 92 is a derivative of the triple register Valjoux 72 that we all know and love, with similar architecture and quality, simply without an hour register. These Valjoux 92-equipped Carreras have a supremely clean look and feel, and wear brilliantly on the modern wrist. This early example has an incredibly clean unpolished case and also comes with a first execution dial with silver script, a true rarity, and absolutely stunning, too!
With values for early manual-winding Heuer chronographs on the rise, you won't want to miss out on snatching up one of these beauties before they go stratospheric like too many other vintage pieces of this caliber.
