Interested in selling a Heuer watch? Here’s some interesting facts and a little history to help you make an informed decision.
The Heuer watch brand was founded in 1860 and stayed a family run company until 1982. The Heuer watch company was eventually sold to Techniques d’Avant Garde (TAG), rebranded to watch company as “TAG Heuer”.
This article focuses on “vintage Heuer watches” which were made prior to 1985. For most watch collectors, vintage Heuer watch collecting means watches that were manufactured between 1960 and 1985.
Heuer released the famous Calibre 11 in three watches — the Autavia, the Carrera and the Monaco.
Heuer Autavia, created for the “Automobile” and “Aviation” industry, first appeared in 1962 as a wrist watch, although the name had been used for stopwatches since the 1930’s. In the evolution of the watches, there have been many designs and models of the Heuer watches, each having its own distinct personality. From chronograph for racing to dual time zones for flying, the Heuer Autavia could do it all.
The Heuer Carrera is the most famous watch model made by Heuer. These were tool watches featuring a chronograph mechanism. The Carrera model watches were only made between 1963 and 1969.
The Heuer Monoaco is most iconic of all Vintage Heuer watches. Perhaps due to it’s unique case shape and the fact that it adorned Steve McQueen’s wrist in the movie “Le Mans”.
