During the development of Heuer Autavia in 1962 Heuer had the idea to create a new chronograph for drivers and motorsport fans. It was important that it be easy to read, shockproofed, anti-magnetic and waterproofed. In 1963 "Heuer Carrera" was launched to the public. The watch was elegant in íts simplicity, the dial with two or three subdials was extremely clear and easy to read. Tachymeter and decimal scales were the first variations in a very creative range of watches. From 1963 until 1979 the Carrera chronographs have been produced with manual and automatic movements.

The name "Carrera" means competition at the highest level and finds its origins in Spanish.
