An vintage icon i have been looking at since the last years. As a chronograph lover the black dial Carrera was on my list for a while... but i was still chasing Rolex Daytona's. But i could not resist any longer.
I will not talk about all details like movements and variations in this article. And Hodinkee did a nice article on the history of the watch.
So here is a bit of different flavor from me. I added a cool nato strap to the watch. Of course most people wear them on a Heuer leather strap with racing holes. Looks great. But i prefer to wear it on a nato. As it makes it bigger and more tool watch. First images are a bit funky ;-)
See how the classic design matches the timeless style.
Sure all that color might be a bit much for most people ;-)
The plexi was crackled when i bought it. I just added a new plexi and a less colorful nato. And now its perfect. One of my watches which got most wrist time the last 2 month.
And here are some of the other dial variations.
And vintage Heuer Lifestyle is so nice...
