A registry for all Heuer Chronomatics, one of the rarest of all collectible vintage watches!
Many thanks to the owners who have kindly participated and to owners we do not yet know about... please feel free to send me details of your Chronomatics for inclusion.
In 1969 Heuer (after developing the first automatic chronograph, with Breitling/Hamilton-Buren/Dubois-Depraz) got ready to launch their first models with the new calibre 11 movement and Carreras, Autavias and the newly designed Monaco were breifly badged "Chronomatics". However Breitling aquired the exclusive rights soon after due to the name not being well received in the USA (Heuers largest market at the time) and all subsequent production variants were badged "Automatic Chronograph".
Note on the very first of the Monaco Chronomatics the back cases were blank, unsigned (later cases had Heuer Tool no33 engraved). It seems likely that these watches were the ones constructed in 1968 pre launch, and probably on display at the press conference in March 1969 and subsequently the very first batch for sale....
