In 1963 two great lines of chronographs started: Rolex with the Cosmograph Daytona and Heuer with the Carrera. The present Heuer Carrera Dato 3147 is a rare iteration of the fairly extensive Carrera line. Known also as the Dato 45 (due to the sole 45 minute register on the right-hand side of the dial) these watches feature a date window and were the first chronographs to feature a rotating “date disc”. This very specimen has a typical 60s style Carrera case in stainless steel with thin lugs all nicely preserved. The back is slightly modified in order to house the Landeron caliber 189 instead of the classical Valjoux 72. The black dial presents a single subsidiary dial for 45 minutes, date aperture at 9 o’clock and oversize minute counter making it really highly legible.
