We are delighted to offer this stainless steel Heuer Carrera Reference 2447T with red dial writing and tachymeter from the 1960s.
Like many of Jack Heuer’s iconic chronographs, the origins of the Carrera can be traced back to 60s motorsport. It was inspired by one of history’s most dangerous events, the “Carrera Pan Americana”, a legendary border-to-border sedan and sports car racing of the 1950’s on the open roads of Mexico. Translated to "race" or "career" in Spanish, the event ran for five consecutive years and was entered by racers from all over the world, representing virtually every motorsport. Taking inspiration from this, Heuer chronograph wristwatches throughout the 1960s and 70s were often the tool of choice for professional race-car drivers, owing much to Jack Heuer’s appreciation for motorsport, and hands-on approach with its teams and drivers.
The Heuer Carrera 2447T epitomises the brand's famous sixties spirit and design philosophy. Jack Heuer’s strict adherence to legibility and function, ahead of all other considerations, accomplished a design classic that arguably represents his vision in its purest form. While the Carrera was produced with a range of dial configurations, this red writing tachymeter three-register arrangement is rare, in comparison to the standard uniform silver and black dials, without the contrasting outer-scales.

The overall condition of this early Heuer Carrera 2447T with its red tachymeter dial is very good. The hour markers and tritium hour markers have all aged consistently.

The stainless-steel case appears to have been lightly polished in the past, but still retains its strong defined lines and chamfers.
