Here we have a beautiful example of a 70s Heuer chronograph with a large oval steel and chrome case, bold dial and a dedication to an iconic 70s racing driver. 

 

This oozes 70s charm, with a large 41mm oval case (similar to Omega's 'Dynamic' range). You'll notice there is no Heuer logo or name on the dial, instead it bears the Jacky Ickx name and signature. This also has a central chronograph hand with a running seconds dial at 6. 

 

The case is a one piece monocoque design and sits high on the wrist with brushed sides and polished top.

 

The hands have a sporty look, with a red centre hand and red stripes through the hour and minute hands. This movement is an EB8420 which uses a pin-lever escapement and starts and stops using the bottom pusher rather than the top one and resets with the top pusher. 

 

This comes on a black rally style leather strap with a stainless steel buckle.
