This 1972 Easy Rider example was made for Hobie Cat, a sail boat manufacturer. It's definitely one of the rarest versions that was offered. The chronograph works and is basically still brand new. I definitely wouldn't consider it high Horology.. haha but if you're a big Heuer fan, it's nice to have in collection.

Model: Easy Rider
Case reference: 423.809
Model reference: R
Dial/Register Colors: white/Black
Hands: gray with red and luminous inserts
Indication: Tachymeter bezel
Case Material: fiberglass
Crystal: Plastic
Chronograph capacity: 15 minutes
Calibre: Bettlach 8420 manual wind

Price: send me an offer, I I've seen them sell for $1,700 on Chrono24 & also for as little as $400 on eBay but haven't seen any as complete and in unused condition as mine. I'm definitely not expecting $1,700 or asking. If you're interested, send me an offer and I will consider the offer or I would also maybe use this as a partial payment in trade or something similar.

If you would like more photos, please ask.
Thanks for looking!
