Vintage and Modern Heuer and Tag Heuer

There is no Swiss watch brand more closely associated with automotive racing and timing than Heuer. Jack Heuer was active in placing his chronographs on the wrists of race car drivers throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s. In the last several years the vintage Heuer chronograph models have exploded in popularity as well as in pricing. The countless versions of Autavia, Carreras, and Camaro models; the Monacos, Mazda, Solunagraph, Calculator and Montreal, are some of the most popular and sought after of the vintage Heuer models. Today Tag Heuer carries the banner for the vintage Heuer brand and many of the classic vintage Heuer models have been reintroduced with many preowned Tag Heuer versions of the reissues available at very favorable prices.
