: Up for sale is a vintage manually-wound Heuer Camaro
: In many ways, the Heuer Camaro was a counterpart to its automative
: namesake. With the Chevy Camaro’s muscular build, Chevy
: subverted the design of the pony cars popularized by Ford,
: Chevy’s chief rival. In building the Heuer Camaro, Heuer took
: the slim case of the Carrera and beefed it up, turning it into a
: square cushion case that subtly foreshadowed the Monaco.
: The watch’s unusual looks destined it for a short production run,
: but a new appreciation for unusual manually-wound vintage
: chronographs has brought forth a resurgence in popularity. This
: particular Camaro, powered by a Valjoux 7730 manually-wound
: drivetrain, boasts a chocolate dial with sword hands and
: beautiful patina on the lume. Another interesting feature is the
: presence of drilled lugs, clearly a cosmetic choice made by a
: previous owner, but nevertheless adds to the sporting aspect of
: the watch.
: Case diameter: approximately 37mm (excluding crown)
: Lug Diameter: 19mm
: Strap Type: includes one 19mm leather strap
: Dial condition: very good condition overall with patina to the
: luminescent elements
