    Designed by Piquerez, the Camaro through its cushion-shaped case was the predecessor of the celebrated Monaco model. Launched in 1968, the present chronograph was manufactured until 1972 and came in various color combinations. Considered as a key chronograph of the firm, the Camaro's popularity continues to grow amongst collectors.
