Description

In 1963 HEUER introduced the Carrera chronograph. Three years later, in 1966, Heuer introduced the Carrera "Dato 45." It was one of the very first wristwatch chronographs to feature a rotating date disc. An advertisement ran in 1969 and 1970 promoting the Heuer Carrera Dato 45 as "ideal for the businessman who needs a chronograph but can never remember the date."

There is a story behind a vintage watch.
Besides the obvious fact that traveling down the years,
a watch absorbs the energy of time and history, it often has a significant story to tell, based on the purpose it was originally made for.
