    SOLD!! Classic Heuer Racing chrono.

    This reference 2446C (compressor case) remains in really outstanding condition and has a strong case and very good lug profile. The reverse panda dial is in very good condition as is the rotating bezel with black insert.
    This is a very rare unit as it has a 'FAB.SUISSE´ inscription in the subdial at 6 o´clock. This FAB.SUISSE text was originally included by Heuer during a period of time for units to be sold in the French market.

    The watch was fully serviced by the watchmaker who I bought it from two years ago. It is running accurate and strong.

    History of the watch: The watch was bought new in the late 60s by a French pilot and belonged to him until he decided to trade it for a Rolex a few years ago. The watchmaker kept it in his personal collection until he decided to let it go. I bought it to the watchmaker after a full service.

    I have selected a brand new JPM brown Racing Strap that evokes the history of racing and travel as envisaged by Jack Heuer in the early days of the chrono’s evolution. I include also a new and original Heuer buckle.

    Specifications:

    - Reference 2446C
    - 40mm steel case
    - Dates to the late 1960s
    - Reverse Panda three register dial
    - Valjoux 72 manual wind movement
    - Recently Fully serviced

    Located in Spain. International shipping.
    Shipping costs will depend on location.

    PM if you are interested. Thank you and thank you also to the Forum
