Up for grabs is a lovely example of the popular Heuer Carrera, reference 2447D (D designated the “decimal” dial, used for measuring efficiency in industrial environments). These 1960s Carrera remain immensely collectible, and draw similar design and mechanical comparisons to the Rolex Daytona, using the same Valjoux 72 movement. This example has a serial number of 69xxx. However, what really sets this example apart from the rest is the fact that it is co-signed by the retailer Fisher. Fisher was a well-known science and research supplies store out of Pennsylvania, USA. It is believed that these watches were not only sold to the general public by them, but also given to their employees for use in the field.
The condition on this Heuer Carrera is excellent. The case has never been polished, with nice, sharp lines. The dial is very attractive, with no major wear, and a light and unique patina set in across the middle of the dial. The original tritium lume is still present on the dial and hands, aged to a beautiful and vibrant yellow color.
