NOTES: In 1959, Heuer introduced its wrist stopwatches on bracelets and were the first on the market. The main customers for these were rally drivers, referees and coaches. Often referred to as ‘coach’ watches, these stopwatches do not indicate the time, but were often worn daily by coaches.
Because of the bracelet, these were ideal for drivers especially as they could time events on their wrist while driving and keep an eye on their time. The reset button on these models could be screw-locked in order to avoid accidental resetting.
These original models were produced until 1964.
