Heuer Carrera manual wind chronograph ref: 73653 - 1974

Description:

A superb example of Heuer production from the height of their fame.  This is the Carrera model with subtle blue/grey dial and contrasting white subdials and Tachy ring.  The distinctive red sweep chronograph hand really gives this watch a bit of 1970’s poke!

This ref: 73653 Carrera was made circa 1974 and is powered by the extremely rugged 7736 manual wind movement.  The Carrera got its name (in 1963) from the legendary cross-isthmus road race in Mexico, known as La Carrera Panamericana.

The 17-jewel manual wind chronograph movement is the Valjoux 7736 calibre.  The triple register chronograph movement beats 18,000 BPH and has a power reserve of 45 hours. The dial displays running seconds, a 30-minute chronograph recorder, and a 12-hour chronograph recorder, as well as the distinctive red chronograph, sweep hand.

Box and Papers:

Unfortunately, this watch is sold without the box or paperwork.

Condition:

This is a pre-owned vintage watch and displays wear and tear associated with daily use. 

Both of the chronograph pushers were damaged and had to be replaced.  Due to the difficulty in finding a replacement set the watch has been fitted with the easier to obtain smooth style.  The case has not been modified in any way so should a set of correct pushers be found they can be fitted easily.  The watch is in excellent unpolished condition.
