Jack Heuer was intent on a splash here in the states, so he chose to name his 1968 introduction after the meanest American muscle car around, the car that Corum 396-250-20-0F01FM30R Men's watch would pace the Indy 500 that year.The Camaro was only made from 1968 through 1972 and unlike the Carrera and Autavia, never saw an automatic version created.The smaller cushion case makes the Camaro a really interesting choice for a relatively affordable vintage chronograph that looks every bit the part of a Heuer.
This all silver vintage Jaeger is pretty good replica Breitling Windrider Starliner Blue Mother watch looking too, don't you think? We LOVE this case-back, it really adds a lot of character to the piece.If you are looking for a reliable and original vintage watch from a great manufacturer, this is a great one.Click here for more details on this NOS Jaeger-Lecoultre Chronometer, something that you hardly ever see and will never see produced again.

The Camaro came in many configurations; ranging from the very , almost dressy instance with a white dial, two register, and no tachymetre to the most Corum 396-150-20-0F05FZ30R Men's watch sought after version that you see here.What makes this example so attractive is the black dial with red register hands, coupled with the white seconds hand, and red outer tachy.Add to that a Valjoux 72 movement and you have the Camaro collectors go crazy for, which is probably why Arno Haslinger has it in his collection.
