A Very Well Preserved Tag Heuer Stopwatch, Model ref: 513.202 with a 'Chessboard Dial'. A Great Gift For Motor Racing or Any Sporting Enthusiast, c.1970. 

Heuer stopwatches have a rich and storied history that spans over a century. The company was founded in 1860 by Edouard Heuer in Switzerland, and quickly gained recognition for its precision timekeeping instruments. In the early years, Heuer focused on producing chronographs for various industries, including sports and aviation. One of the most significant milestones for Heuer came in 1911 when they patented the first dashboard chronograph, which allowed drivers to measure time while racing.

This innovation paved the way for Heuer's involvement in motorsports, where their stop watches became synonymous with accuracy and reliability. In the 1960s and 1970s, Heuer achieved global fame through collaborations with renowned race car drivers like Jo Siffert and iconic Hollywood actor Steve McQueen.
