1960 RACING

The 1960 Racing is a celebration of generations of racing horology, with subtle nods to the likes of Audi Sport, Porsche, McLaren and Shelby Cobra, all part of that era.

The design is a balance between vintage aesthetics, 80’s Bauhaus design lines, and modern day technology, encapsulated in a 40mm sports chronograph complete with a tachymeter, scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and 316L surgical steel case.

SKY BLUE LIMITED EDITION (100 PCS)
We designed a limited edition 1960 Racing watch with clear references to the history of racing. As you might already have spotted, it is the legendary Porsche 917 Gulf Le Mans car with its sky blue color and orange details, that was the reference for this limited edition.

2 NEW STYLES IN THE COLLECTION
We’re also adding 2 new styles to the 1960 Racing collection. An off-white dial with black bezel and a reverse panda - both instant classics. The 2 new styles have the recognizable aesthetics and functionality that an authentic racing watch should have.

IN DEPTH WITH THE 1960 RACING

The new 1960 racing is a chronograph watch with all the benefits that type of watch offers. It is equipped with three subdials, showing twentieth seconds for accurate timing of track-laps on the right, minutes on the left, and running seconds in the middle. The watch is powered by a Japanese made Miyota movement, which is widely known for their durability and reliability.

Besides timing your Nürburgring laps and average speed, a chronograph is great for many daily-base tasks such as timing your eggs, your interval training or how long your keynote speech has lasted. It is the most accurate timing device in our line up, letting you make timings not only to the second but to one twentieth of a second, for when time really matters.

The all new Sky Blue limited edition model is actually made with inspiration from the legendary Porsche 917 Gulf Le Mans car, as you might already have spotted.

HOW DOES A TACHYMETER WORK?

With a tachymeter, you can calculate the average speed based on how many seconds it takes a vehicle to travel a fixed distance, say 1 km or the like.

1) Start the chronograph by pushing the upper button

2) After the vehicle has traveled the distance, stop the chronograph with the same button.

3) Observe the position of the second hand and read the outer bezel. If stopped at 80, it took 45 seconds to travel 1 km, which comes down to an average speed of 80 kph.

4) Reset by pushing the lower button

1960 RACING

THE ENTIRE STORY BEHIND THE WATCH

The 1960s was the first real golden age of car racing. In 1960 Ferrari dominated the scene at Le Mans with manufacturers such as Maserati and Porsche in the peloton as well while Cooper and Lotus were at the top of Formula 1. It was also the year when Mickey Thompson became the first person to exceed 400 mph in a race car; the Challenger 1.

Motor Racing has always been one of the most important industries for the development of wrist watches, giving the drivers the ability to time their own laps with Heuer on the forefront. In 1960 Heuer celebrated the 100th year of the invention of the stopwatch, with a brand new line of stopwatches on wrist straps, making it easier to wear for race drivers, referees and coaches as well as military personnel.

Sustainable Quality

The best way for us to be sustainable is to make products that last a lifetime. Therefore, we only produce watches using premium materials.

Designed in Copenhagen and delivered to the world.

Steel & Gold

We use 316L surgical-grade stainless steel from Finland, which is commonly used for fine watches and jewelry worldwide. Additionally, our models with gold plating are, of course, made with genuine ISO-certified gold plating, ensuring that the precious metals can withstand the test of time.

Sapphire crystal

We only use highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal on all our models, combined with an anti-reflective coating for better visibility. Our products are made with Japanese precision. It may be expensive, but it is the key to lifelong quality.

Movements (caliber)

We carefully select Swiss and Japanese-made quality movements, as they are simply the best in the world. We choose specific calibers from Miyota, Sellita, and TMI that have been real-world tested and proven to be 'workhorses' for optimal durability.

A-grade Factories

We use A-grade factories and suppliers for all components, making a difference in all the small but important details. Everything, from the feel of the round steel edges to the quality feel and weight of the bracelets, dial details, quality control, and certified work environment ethic.
