For those who don’t know the story of how the Carrera came into being, its existence can be traced back to 1963 when Jack Heuer, the great-grandson of Heuer founder Edouard, was attending the 12 Hours of Sebring endurance race at which the legendary Rodriguez brothers, Ricardo and Pedro, were driving for Ferrari.
The pair were idolised as Mexico’s most famous racing drivers, and present on the day were their parents, with whom Jack struck up a conversation in the pits. Soon, talk turned to their country’s most famous race - La Carrera PanAmericana - and Jack immediately became enthralled both by the idea of the event (which had been scrapped eight years earlier) and by the evocative ‘Carrera’ name.
He quickly determined to use it for his next chronograph design and soon registered exclusive rights to it for watch use - at almost the same time, incidentally, that Porsche acquired the right to use it on its sports cars.Please use the pictures to determine the condition to your own standard as pictures are of the exact watch being offered for sale.
