Heuer Pre-Carrera 406 NR, Steel


Prior to Heuer’s introduction of the racing-inspired, Carrera series, early Heuer chronographs were setting the standard for which the brand has since become known. This rare, ‘pre-Carrera’ from the 1940’s is a perfect example of Heuer’s commitment to utilitarian functionality, married to classical design. It has its original, two-register glossy black dial, showing definite, early transition to a tropical/brown tone. It also has its original, unsigned crown and corresponding pump-pushers.
