While the Carrera, Autavia and Monaco have been very popular Heuer models in recent times, one line has been under the radar- the Camaro. Released in 1960 and named after the Chevrolet Camaro, they are relatively rarer than the others as they were only produced for 4 years before Heuer transitioned to the Chronomatic movements.
With its 37mm cushioned shaped stainless steel case, it is quite unique in its design and has some excellent finishing with a brushed surface that bevels off making for quite a muscular presence. This example, in particular, the 7220N is a highly desirable variant of the Camaro and with its matte black dial and concentric glossy subdial rings, it is a great looking piece.
In particular, this example you see today is in stunning condition, retaining an unpolished case with its original finish and an insanely well-preserved dial that has started to go dark brown. It is powered by a high-quality Valjoux 72 movement and it is one of the great value buys of vintage collecting.
