1970’s Heuer Montreal Cal 12 Chronograph 110.505

£4,250.00

In 1969, Heuer marked a pivotal moment in its history by introducing the very first automatic chronographs, namely the Autavia, Carrera, and Monaco. This significant leap forward prompted Heuer to embark on an ambitious journey to expand its lineup of chronographs, all of which would feature the innovative Calibre 12 movement.

Among these fresh additions were the Calculator and the Montreal. The Calculator was a substantial chronograph that integrated a slide rule within both its inner and outer bezels, catering to practical and technical enthusiasts. On the other hand, the Montreal made a bold entrance, setting the stage for a series of Heuer chronographs that encapsulated the fashion and spirit of the 1970s.

Upon its debut in 1972, the Montreal perfectly embodied the audacious style of the era. Its case was remarkably oversized, boasting avant-garde geometric design elements and a striking contrast of brushed and polished finishes. The dials, inner bezels, and hands embraced vibrant, eye-catching colours, capturing the essence of the exuberant 1970s fashion and design trends.

This is one of the most striking variations within the Montreal collection is the gold-plated model, featuring a corresponding “Champagne” dial. These exquisite timepieces were offered with a gold-plated NSA “brick” bracelet, which was identical to the one found on the Monaco reference 1133. A watch that doesn’t come to market very often and is a must for a Heuer collector after the rare and different.

Interesting Fact “The Calibre 12 powered Montreal was phased out in 1976.”
