HEUER CAMARO   Ref. 7220 T

The Heuer Camaro was launched in 1968 and slipped out of production in 1972.
For this new model, Heuer used a new case style with a slightly angular cushion shape and either a two or three-register dial layout.  It’s beautifully finished, with a range of different surface finishes- the starburst pattern on top of the case contrasts with the polished sides of the case, which makes for a wonderful design. The silver sunburst dial with three registers and outer tachymeter scale is proportionately well balanced.The watch features a plexi crystal which  has a soft curve. It has been an interesting model among vintage Heuer, because it is uniquely associated with an American automobile by Chevrolet.Add the well-respected workhorse movement Valjoux 72, and this piece could fit right in with the collection of any vintage chronograph aficionado.

The case is in very good original condition – it has been never polished – it shows just some light overall wear. The crown and fluted pushers are original.. The dial is in very good condition, just minor signs of aging. There is a noticeable red dot on the 30-minutes register counter – seems that a previous owner customized the dial in this way. The patinated lume plots are completely given. The handset and indexes show light patina,  the lume on the hands is complete and nicely aged Tritium.. The movement runs fine, with the chronograph starting, stopping, and resetting correctly.
