Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica Watches dedicates 160th anniversary to the Carrera

What's in a Name?

Jack Heuer wrote in his autobiography, "January 1962" that he had lent a few Heuer pocket watches chronographs to race organizers. Heuer's spilt seconds were used for the 12 Hours Race at Sebring, Florida.

Sebring was the center of endurance racing in those years. There were many notable names who raced in the amateur and professional circuits, including Jochen Rindt from Germany, Ricardo Rodriguez from Mexico,Rolex Daytona Replica and Paul Newman from America.

Jack mainly hung out in the Ferrari pits while he was at the track. Jack was clearly a fan. He spent enough time at the pits to get to know the Rodriguez brothers, and their parents. They were flying for Ferrari that year.

Jack recalls a conversation he had with his brothers' parents. He writes: "They told me they were fortunate that their boys were so young -- Pedro at the time was 21 and Ricardo at 19. They would have been able to participate in the dangerous Carrera Panamericana Mexico race through Mexico if they were born earlier. It was the most dangerous sport car race in the world at the time and had over 30 deaths over five years. Safety concerns led to the 1955 cancellation. This decision was reinforced by the Le Mans disaster in the same year.

Jack met Carrera at Sebring, where he was first introduced to the term.Audemars Piguet Replica Watches History has shown that Carrera left a lasting impression on Jack. Jack wrote, "I loved its sexy sounds but also its multiple meanings which include road and race course, career, and so on. Heuer territory is a great place! As soon as I returned to Switzerland, I registered the name under "Heuer Carrera".

Designing the Carrera

Jack Heuer was a student who developed an interest in modern design. He wrote that he was a huge fan of Charles Eames and Le Corbusier, as well as architects like Oscar Niemeyer and Eero Saarinen.Cartier Ballon Bleu fake Watches Jack shared that he saved enough money as a student to purchase an Eames lounger chair. He admits that it looked strangely out of place in the student accommodation.

Heuer was the majority shareholder and he designed the first watch of his professional career.Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica Watches He used the principles he had learned from the work of world-renowned designers to create his own design.

Jack begins by sharing the fact that wristwatch chronographs were very popular during WWII, especially among military and artillery officers. They were used to calculate distances and coordinate attack times with ground troops. Many of these chronographs had artillery telemeters equipped with spiral scales, making their dials difficult-to-read. A new technical invention helped me create a dial with a clean, clear design.
