The minute hand was professionally color matched by LA WatchWorks. The Valjoux caliber 7730 movement was recently fully serviced by European Watch Co. in Boston. Running perfectly with the chronograph running as it should.

Backed by our 6 month repair warranty.

Note: This watch was photographed with high intensity strobe lighting. Which brings out micro/ superficial scratches that will not be as visible under natural lighting.

In-Depth: The Camaro is perhaps the most interesting chronograph model to be made by Heuer. Produced from 1968-1972, the Camaro perfectly captures the era of automobile racing in the United States and Jack Heuer genius marketing tactics associated it with Chevrolet. The newly introduced cushion case design was produced with either three or in this case two registers. With a different more loud case design, you either love it or hate it. In our opinions, it is still a very undervalued model made by one of the hottest vintage brands today.
