Description

Like many of Heuer’s most iconic chronographs, the origins of the Carrera can be traced back to 60s motorsport. It was inspired by one of history’s most dangerous events, the “Carrera Panamericana”, the legendary border-to-border sedan and sports car racing of the 1950’s, on the open roads of Mexico. 

The Heuer Carrera 7753SND epitomises the brand's famous sixties spirit and design philosophy. This example from 1970 has its original, black-on-silver “panda” dial with tritium hour markers. Remarkably it also has its original, Heuer signed crown and bracelet!! 

Powered by a manually-wound, two-register Valjoux 7730 calibre (labeled as "Leonidas"), the movement is a 14 line, cam-switching chronograph mechanism with 17 jewels. Based on the 1948 Venus 188 design, at its heart, beating at 18,000 A/h, with a power reserve of approximately 45 hours.
