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.
Its 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
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.

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.
