Possibly Military Version of Carrera ? ?

This one looks like a Carrera, except that there is no inner bezel, there is no "Carrera" on the dial, and the case is different.

I have heard of military versions / variations of the Carrera. These military Carreras had no inner bezel; I am uncertain about the style of the case or whether the word "Carrera" appeared on the dial.

It's a great looking watch . . . passes as a Carrera at a quick glance. Maybe others will be able to provide additional information.

Thanks for the message.



: Dear Chuck,

: I hope you do not mind me contacting you, but I
: got your email address from your very
: interesting article on the Carrera.

: I have been searching the internet (in vain)
: trying to find some information on my Heuer.

: I bought the watch in November 1971 from a
: jeweller in Chester, England.

: The receipt notes the watch as a "GTS
: Heuer Chrono. 7723" and the there is a
: number on the case (between the top strap
: lugs) "123158".

: The guarantee certificate notes the model
: number as "7723N" but also states
: it is a Carrera, which I do not believe can
: be correct.

: I would be most grateful if you could give me
: any information about the watch, or point me
: to a web site where I might find something.

: I attach an image of the watch.

: Best wishes

: Alan Rhodes
: Buckinghamshire
