Carrera 2447D
Description

For auction is a true holy grail of vintage Heuer.  The ref. 2447D. The Carrera was introduced by Heuer in 1964. Jack Heuer designed the dial to be easy to read, specifically putting the outer track on the reflector ring as to maximize dial space. The 36mm case was unique, with long tapered lugs that were beveled on the inside, as well as the outside. Today, this watch is one of the most highly sought after chronographs from the best years of Heuer. This particular watch is one of the rarest references, the 2447D. The D stands for "Decimal." Breaking a minute into 100 parts, rather than 60, allows for more accurate timing calculations and was used for scientific experiments. Of the Carreras made with the decimal scale, this monochromatic black on silver version is the third execution and believed to be the rarest. This particular watch is a gorgeous, unmolested example of this rare reference. The watch shows signs of use, but it is all original and unpolished and the Heuer-signed Valjoux 72 is in perfect working order. This watch is a true time capsule that looks to never have been apart. It is probably one of the best examples of the 2447D and not to be missed.

Case: The 36mm Heuer Carrera case was not used on any other watch unlike so many other chronographs of the era. It shows some wear from the years, but the sides are nice and straight and the lugs are sharp with perfect bevels intact, having never been hit with a polishing wheel. The original pushers and Heuer-signed crown have survived intact. The caseback shows some of its original brushing and is free of gouging.

Dial: The brilliant silver dial is in truly remarkable condition, with the distinctive 1-100 decimal track, guilloche subdials and black subdial hands that look like they have never been off the watch. The distinctive outer track, which is an integral part of the design, is intact and in great condition. The lume on the pointed baton hour and minute hands has turned a deep orange color and looks amazing.

Condition: 85% (8.5 of 10): very nice original unpolished vintage condition, running well
