BEAUTIFUL PHOTO -- John Morton Carrera


We knew that you were in contact with John Morton, and it is fantastic that you have acquired this Carrera. It was this style, ruggedness and legibility that made the Heuers so popular among the racers . . . what a great story!!

So now we have Fangio, Siffert, McQueen and JOHN MORTON!! Formula One, Sports Cars, Can-Am and now TRANS-AM. We cover all of it here, with OnTheDash!!

Congratulations on the acquisition and thanks for the message.



: If the white dial Autavia is the "Jo
: Siffert", I guess that would make my
: newly aquired Carrera 45 Dato (later model
: with black dial, date at 9) the "John
: Morton" model. I bought my watch from
: road racing legend John Morton, and he was
: awarded this watch in 1970 for winning the
: SCCA National Championship in Pete Brock's
: BRE Datsun. John tells me that he wore my
: watch in every race he raced in thru the
: '70s, and he liked it because he could check
: to see how much time was remaining in the
: race, and it was easy to read. He has
: "a whole bunch of pictures" of him
: wearing the watch in various race cars, and
: I can't wait to go thru them next time I am
: in L.A. John still had the original
: box/strap/buckle/warranty too!

: I'll attempt to post a picture.

: I'll post a picture of my "John
: Morton" when it is done.
