Dive into a legacy of precision and style with the iconic Heuer Carrera 3647 T, a watch that stands as a testament to Heuer's unparalleled craftsmanship in the golden era of motor racing. Known affectionately among collectors as the "Carrera 45," named for its distinctive 45-minute register, this vintage Carrera offers a sleek, minimalist design, embodying the spirit of adventure and competition that defined the 1960s.
The Heuer Carrera 3647 T, with its 'Red Tachymetre' dial, is often referred to by enthusiasts as the "Red Tachy," boasts a vibrant, red tachymeter scale that encircles the dial, setting it apart from its contemporaries with a bold statement of style and functionality. This feature is not just a color choice; it represents a nod to the racing heritage of the Carrera line, designed to offer drivers and timekeepers unparalleled precision and readability in measuring speed over a known distance.
At its heart, beats the 17-jewel Valjoux 92 manual wind movement, a movement renowned for its reliability and precision. The movement is housed in an elegant stainless steel case, measuring a comfortable 36mm in diameter, a size that ensures the watch remains as contemporary today as it was at the time of its release.
The dial itself is a marvel of design simplicity and clarity. It features two sub-dials: a 45-minute counter at 3 o'clock and a running seconds sub-dial at 9 o'clock, offering a balanced and uncluttered aesthetic. The hands and markers are adorned with tritium, now aged to a warm patina, adding character and a sense of history to the watch.
Completing the look is a lovely tan leather strap, that complements the watch's vintage charm. Whether on the wrist for a casual outing or a significant event, the Heuer Carrera 3647 T with its 'Red Tachymetre' dial is a conversation starter, embodying a rich history of innovation and elegance.
A vintage Heuer Carrera isn't just another chronograph; it's arguably the genesis of one of the most iconic and enduring chronograph designs of all time. Sure, you could buy a modern re-edition, buy why buy the re-run when you could own an original?! Especially if its an example with the gorgeous "Red Tachy" dial!
Please note this is a pre-order item which means the watch is currently away being serviced. You can secure it now for our unbeatable pre-listing discount. Don't miss it though - our pre-listing prices are so low that other dealers frequently buy from us! Please note no additional discounts are accepted on pre-orders. We expect to have this back around the end of February.
Also be aware that when the photos were taken the plexi was very sratched which makes it look like the dial is badly marked, which it isn't. We also had to sharpen the image as the lens would focus through the plexi correctly which makes the typography on the dial look bolder than it is.
