The Carrera chronograph, designed by Jack Heuer, was introduced in 1963. It was named after the Carrera Panamericana road race in Mexico. The model was also discontinued after Jack’s departure from the company in the early 80’s. The Carrera was designed to be legible and easy to read. The tachymeter was moved to a ring outside the dial to give it a simple and clean design. This chronograph was designed for car racing and became one of the most iconic models for the brand proven by its re-launch and success in recent years.
