1977 Vintage HEUER KENTUCKY Horse Racing Chronograph Mens Watch, Automatic - Stainless Steel & Gold

Fine & Uncommon Heuer Racing Chronograph - Original - 1 Year Warranty - 100% Feedback

Internationally acclaimed for their leadership in sports watches, TAG-Heuer is legendary for their dedication to building accurate and high-performance timepieces. Embraced by world-class athletes, race drivers, aviators, and anyone who demands the utmost in performance from their wristwatch, the company's watches rank among the most recognizable luxury watches in the world.

Named the Kentucky, presumably suggestive of America's most famous horse race, the case is done in the shape of a horseshoe. The watch was a short lived model, made only for approximately two years.

Born from the partnership of two of the world's most respected timing companies, Heuer and Valjoux, this special Heuer is powered by an edition of the famous Valjoux 7750 movement. Renowned for its robustness, this mechanism is still used today by TAG Heuer, Breitling, and other firms.

We were fortunate to acquire the watch in pleasing original condition. The day of the week calendar is in German. Our watchmaker has replaced all of its waterproofing seals. Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to the watch's performance.


Timepiece's Finer Points:

Dial: Two-tone silver and yellow with applied gold and black baton indexes, luminous dots, subsidiary dials for the seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour registers, outer 1/5th second/minute divisions, outer tachometer scale, apertures for the day/date. Luminous yellow gold and black baton hands. Day of the week is in German. Mint condition

Crystal: Acrylic, vintage, excellent condition

Case: Two-body, polished and brushed, rounded bezel with 2 gold tone screws and Heuer logo, hooded lugs, screwed down case back, near mint condition

Dim. 39 x 44 mm. Thickness 14 mm

Band: Integrated Heuer bracelet, steel, foldover clasp with interesting locking mechanism, designed to fit a wrist up to approx. 8 1/8 inches (approx. 206.4mm), adjustable, better than near mint condition

Movement: Heuer caliber based on Valjoux 7750, rhodium plated, 17 jewels, straight line lever escapement, monometallic balance, shock absorber, self-compensating flat balance spring, index regulator, hack mechanism

Functions: Time (Automatic), Quick-Setting Day and Date, Hacking Seconds, Waterproof
