Some Info re Camaros
In Response To: i happened to see a camaro-- ()


I believe that the earlier Camaros, in the smaller "cushion cases" (shown below) had fluted pushers. Heuer used plain pushers on some of the arlier models (Autavia, Carrera, etc.), but I believe the Camaros began with fluted pushers.

Camaros used several Valjoux movements, depending whether they had three registers, two registers, or two regsiters plus date.

We plan to add them to the Master Reference Table, sometime soon. The Master Reference began with the automatics (Cal 11 and Cal 12 models); we have added back in time to cover the Autavias. Next projects are to add back in time for the Carreras and to add the Camaros, which are not yet in the table.




: and was curious if the valjoux 72 chrono
: movement was the only one used, or did they
: also use the 7734 or any others?

: second question, did heuer ever use the
: non-fluted pushers on any of the camaro
: models? i haven't seen many heuers
: (camaro's, or otherwise)around with the
: exception of some of the older chronos, but
: i learned a lesson recently that the carrera
: dato 45's have non-signed crowns originally,
: and now i wonder if maybe heuer did use
: non-fluted pushers ever during production?

: i've realized i kinda like the camaro's. great
: pics on otd, btw! thanks to Ralf, Jeff, and
: other contributors. looks like some catalog
: pics are being added to the camaro section,
: any chance of an addition to the master ref.
: table? i haven't seen much posted on them,
: any particular reason why? thanks in
: advance.

: j.h.
