1971 Heuer Calculator - Cal. 12 - Ref. 110.633
A Fine and very well preserved chronograph.
WHY IS THIS WATCH SPECIAL
The Heuer Calculator was designed for those who wanted a slide rule on their wrist for conducting mathematical calculations. Today, it stands out as a rare and unusual model at a more approachable price point than other vintage Heuer models.
This chronograph is in excellent condition. The case has never been polished, with sharp edges, defined beveled lugs and most important, the slide rule is like new.
This is one impressive timepiece.
The Heuer Calculator has a following among those seeking cool tools of industrial design from the past. Although it can look a little impressive and large at first, it can actually be quite comfortable and cool on the wrist. The first thing you notice is the slide rule on the bezel. The outer ring rotates and the inner remains fixed. The slide rule is designed to measure distance and also convert weight and volume from the imperial to the metric system and vice versa, among other calculations. Keeping all the slide rule portion on the bezel allows the dial to remain uncluttered, retaining a Heuer look from the 1970s with the bright neon hands and the subdial markers with a date at six. The watch was offered in navy blue as seen in this example and in black. The Design Director of BMW Group, Adrian van Hooydonk, has been seen wearing a Heuer Calculator over the years.
