Lot Essay

The present stopwatch set is among the most interesting and important to ever come to market. To the best of our knowledge, these are the only two Heuer stopwatches to feature the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway logo on the dial. One can only speculate, particularly given the sticker on the back allowing for the calculation of speed, that these may have been in fact used at the track back in the 1960s.

You can practically smell the petroleum fumes when holding them and chills can run down your spine imagining these being used to time some of the greatest drivers of all-time.

This set was previously part of the Crown & Caliber Heuer 100 auction and prior to that was owned by an important American collector of Heuer chronographs.
