FS: Heuer - Rare 1950s Box with Motorsport Connection

This box was awarded to the winner of the historic Eifelrennen motor race at the Nurburgring in 1951. The ADAC Eifelrennen was first held in 1922 and was held at the Nurburgring from 1927 until 1983. Famous winners include Fangio, Siffert, Rindt & Stewart.

The box is covered in a brown faux lizard skin cover, which is in excellent condition given its age. The top was originally marked Heuer in gilt lettering but this is now very faint.

The fabric interior of the box displays the Heuer logo in gold and is marked “Zur Erinnerung”, which translates as “In memory of”.

The underside of the box is marked “Sieger” or “Winner”, “Nürburgring Eifel 1951”.

The clasp to the front of the box and the two hinges at the rear are all in perfect working order. The velvet interior includes a slot into which the watch, surely a chronograph but sadly now long gone, would have fitted.

The box measures 13.5cm x 10cm x 4cm.

An absolutely unique collector’s piece or perhaps a wonderful box for your 1950s Heuer chronograph.

I am asking £750 but can offer a 10% saving to forum members.

The box is in the UK but I would consider all offers.

Please e-mail me with any queries at

Thanks for looking.
