Initially released in 1963, the Heuer Carrera chronograph has seen many variations and design changes. In celebration of its 60th anniversary, we’re presented with a new 39mm Carrera named “Glassbox”--derived from the domed sapphire crystal inspired by the hesalite crystals found on vintage Heuer’s of the 1970s. The new design allows the tachymeter scale to flow with the curvature of the crystal instead of laying flat like previous Carerras.
