Howdy WatchUSeekers,

Featured here is an honest example of the early Heuer Carrera reference 2447.

The Heuer Carrera was born in 1963 as the brainchild of watch industry legend Jack Heuer. Its name was derived from the Carrera Panamericana, a dangerous professional road race that took place on the streets of Mexico. With the Carrera, Heuer set out to create a chronograph that was both sleek and highly legible, featuring an uncluttered, monochromatic dial design with basic stick markers. The Carrera enjoyed widespread success as a racing watch throughout the 1960’s and 70’s. However, when Jack Heuer retired in the early 1980’s, the Carrera line was discontinued. Due to their relatively short production span, these early Heuer chronographs have gained a cult following among automotive and watch enthusiasts, alike.

This iteration of the Carrera, the 2447, was the first Carrera reference of them all. Accordingly, it has become one of the most sought after. The watch features a 36 mm stainless steel case, which houses the legendary Valjoux 72 manually wound chronograph movement. It is in excellent pre-owned condition – there is faint spotting on the silver dial, and surface scratches on the case. This watch is functioning properly, and is accompanied by our Feldmar Watch Company Certified Pre-Owned 2 Year Warranty.
