About this watch

This has to be one of the coolest Heuer watches we have had for sale recently and is an excellent example of a very rare offering from Heuer, the 1553N Chronograph, with wonderful vivid electric blue dial with silver details.These watches are extremely rare, I can only recall 2 others being available in the last 12 months and non in this original and unrestored condition, most having been heavily refinished , this example is as good as they come.

Heuer Carerra watches became infamous for their links to motor racing, most famously being worn by Steve McQueen in the racing film Le Mans and a regular companion for Formula 1 drivers throughout the 1970’s.

This Automatic calibre 15 example is in truly remarkable condition having been recently overhauled by vintage Heuer expert Stefan Stefanson .

The watch comes with the original box and is complimented by a wonderful period blue drivers band, which is new old stock. The watch is in time warp condition, a couple of very light marks on the dial and a few light age related marks on the case but it is truly remarkable considering its vintage.The 39 mm stainless steel case shows little wear and demonstrates fantastic crisp edges 

With recent leaps in Heuer values this is a sure-fire investment opportunity and a great thing on the wrist, its got one of the nicest wrist presences of any 70’s chronograph we have seen in some time. The left winding crown and right pushers really balance the watch and it wears incredibly well.
