Heuer Carrera 1553 N Blue Dial

martini racing team colors - racing chrono - excellent condition

This Heuer Carrera 1553N in the dial colors of the Martini Racing Team shows how close the connection was between old Heuer chronographs and motorsport of the 1970s.

As a direct successor to the reference 1153, the Carrera 1553 was introduced in 1972 and is one of the rarer versions of the vintage Carrera. While the cushion-shaped case remained unchanged, there were significant adjustments to the dial design. In addition to the blue version 1553N (noire), there was also a silver dial version 1153S. The trademark of this Carrera is the small running seconds at 10 o'clock and a silver-colored stripe with the model name Carrera running into the 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock. The metallic blue surface of the dial has a lighter or darker shade depending on the incidence of light. The chronograph has an orange second hand and a silver tachymeter scale giving the dial a great contrast. A date window is at 6 o'clock.

In order to attract a vintage collector's attention, it is known that a vintage watch must have been preserved in good condition. We are convinced that the condition of this Heuer Carrera will satisfy even the most discerning collector. A flawless dial with original luminous material and the pillow-shaped stainless steel case with sharp lugs and intact finish speak a clear language. The reference and serial numbers are visible between the lugs. The crown is signed with the Heuer logo. The automatic Heuer caliber 15 takes care of the drive of this vintage chronograph and ensures accurate timekeeping.

All in all an attractive 1970s racing chronograph in first-class collector's condition.
