FS: Carrera 2447s

Up for sale is my classic Carrera 2447. I've owned this about 3 years now.

I am describing this as honestly as I can for full disclosure.


Case is clean but has been polished previously. There is a crease mark on the top right lug that is difficult to photograph but it shown in one of the images. You cannot see this whilst being worn. Case back has tool marks but the original 4 digit code depicting European (German?) market is still just about visible. Serial is 79xxx which I believe is approx 66/67.

Crown and pushers are original.

Dial is original and shows a lot of patina in natural light. There is a tool mark just under the Heuer logo and a dent just by the 8 marker, again this is difficult to photograph.

Hands are original with the exception of the seconds hand that has been changed during service for an incorrect one. The original lume is discoloured.

Movement - original V72 that winds smoothly and runs ok, all chrono functions work. Service history cannot be confirmed, although the previous owner said it was done around 2010. No paperwork so presume that a service is / will be required.

Strap - Comes with a hand made racing strap by Guilliano in excellent condition and a repro Heuer buckle. I have a non branded vintage BOR bracelet that could be included by negotiation if required.

Price - I am open to offers on this and will keep this open for one week. UK/EU sale preferred but will listen to offers from elsewhere. Payment by bank transfer, No Paypal unless I know you. References may be required. Shipping to be agreed with the buyer.

All images have been taken in the last 7 days

Images taken in natural lighting

Looks a different watch in artificial lighting


BTW - I'm not a regular poster here but have done deals with a few of the more well regarded members in the past via other methods. I can provide these details via email if needed.

Watch is in the U.K.

Thanks for looking
