The Heuer Carrera turned 50 years old this year, and we needn't say much about the model's history, importance, and iconic stature - if you're looking at this, you probably already know. With that said, here's an incredibly rare example we were just tickled to uncover: a Reference 3647S signed by Gübelin!
Gübelin is a major European luxury retailer and watch brand with dating back nearly 150 years. In addition to watchmaking and retailing their own label, Gübelin also branded some of the world's most exclusive timepieces, including Patek Philippe for sale in their shops throughout Europe. One might consider them the European equivalent of Tiffany & Co. While we have come across Gübelin signed timepieces before, as well as some of their own spectacular house-brand models, we have never before seen one of these!
Manufactured circa 1965, this manually-wound Carrera features the robust Valjoux 92 chronograph movement with a 45-minute counter and subsidiary seconds register set against and an incredibly crisp and clean silver sunburst dial. We searched all year for the appropriate timepiece to commemorate the 50-Year milestone of the world's most recognizable motorsports chronograph, and we finally found it. This is a truly spectacular piece with great history - don't miss it!
Steel Case is approximately 36mm (excluding the crown). Heuer Reference 3647S.
Overall condition: Original case is in excellent condition for its age, showing only very light wear consistent with age. Very small blemish on the bezel near 2:00. Original dial is in excellent condition overall. Original first execution markers and hands. Luminescent inserts show patination due to age. Unsigned crown. Watch has been serviced and is keeping excellent time. In the interest of originality, we left the lower chrono pusher in its current state (rough), however we can replace it prior to delivery upon request.
Includes Brown Leather Rallye Strap and two 18mm Nylon Straps by Crown & Buckle.
