Lot Essay

Introduced in 1965, the Carrera 2447 NT is one of the rarest and most sought after models. Only a few examples of the reference are known to the public. To the best of our knowledge this is the first to include this retailer's signature on the dial, "Meister." A prominent watch retailer in Zurich, the Meister signature is also found on a number of important vintage OMEGA watches including Speedmasters and Seamasters. Seldom is the signature found on the dial as well as the papers to accompany the watch, as is the extremely rare occurrence here where the Heuer guarantee papers are also signed "Meister Uhren".

Undoubtedly, this is one of the rarest and most well-preserved vintage Carrera's to come to market in recent years. It was originally purchased in July of 1968 at the renowned Swiss luxury watch retailer Meister for less than 100 dollars. Worn only a handful of times, it was put aside for over four decades and has remained preserved in excellent un-restored condition. The watch impresses due to its mint condition. The dial and hands have beautiful creamy tritium luminous material and the case is crisp with sharp and defined lugs.
