Heuer Carrera ref. #2447 Item #2729 SOLD

Never been polished! Hardly worn!

Here we have a Heuer Carrera is in wonderful condition.

This iconic Heuer is powered by the legendary Valjoux 72 movement. This Val. 72 movement has the Heuer modifications including the chronograph bridge in its unique Heuer style.

The silver dial shows the typical aging from the period, but the finish is absolutely original. All of the hands are original as is the inner bezel. The only thing that we can see that is not original with this entire watch is at some point years ago, someone replaced the luminous in the hands. It looks right, the coloring is good, and it had us fooled at first.

The 36mm stainless steel case has all its original factory edges and surfaces. Take a look at the caseback photo and see the ends of the lugs. See the flat spots at the very end - you hardly ever see these, especially if they've been polished. We took a number of pictures of the tops of the lugs, and you can see all of those original angles and sharp edges. Again, all original! The case features its original Heuer signed crown, chronograph pushers as well as a Heuer signed screw down caseback.

The watch is running well and keeping good time. We just installed a new black leather sports strap so it ready to wear and/or collect.
