Named after the Chevrolet Camaro that was launched in 1966. Jack Heuer believed this move would strengthen Heures position in the US market. The Heuer Camaro was launched in 1968 right between the time Chevrolet was the pace car of the Indy 500. This model sports a gold plated chassis and was the last series introduced before the focus turned to the Chronomatic-Powered watches of 1969. Due to this it only had a short production run until 1972.
The 37mm cushion case houses a crisp white dial with 2 sub-dials of 60 seconds and 30 minutes respectively. At the 6 o'clock position sits the date. Gold fence hands and gold indexes complement the sporty appeal. Inside we have a Valjoux 7734 Manual-winding movement with 17 jewels with incabloc, beating at 18,000 beats per hour. A black leather strap completes the look.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no original Heuer box or original Heuer paperwork. The watch is in worn, vintage condition and is showing signs of age, the dial is in great condition whereas the case is showing some signs of gold plating wearing, the saturated photos make this look more than it is. The watch has no known service history but is in good running order.
The Camero is easily one of my favourite model lines that Heuer have done, surprisingly similar to the Carrera in regards to hands and dial, it differs in the fact that it has a 37mm cushion-shaped case which fits the wrist perfectly! This model features a gold plated case which is showing signs of age but overall is in good condition, the dial is a silver-tone in good, original condition! All powered by the Valjoux 7734 which is running well!
