Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Replica’s heritage director, Catherine Eberlé-Devaux, talks to Revolution about the Heuer spirit and the role of the Carrera in inspiring the brand’s historic motor-racing collections.
Before the brand was “Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Replica
”, it was known simply as Heuer, named after its eponymous founding family. By the first half of the 20th century, the manufacture was well-known for producing dashboard instruments and stopwatches, having released models such as the Mikrograph stopwatch and the original Autavia, a dashboard timer. But arguably, it was only in the 1970s when Jack Heuer, great-grandson of the founder Edouard, and the company’s then-CEO, partnered with the biggest names on the automobile racetracks panerai radiomir replica

What was it that drew you to Cartier Roadster Replica
and started your journey into vintage watch collections?
I started my journey with Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Replica. In order to know the brand from the start, the best place was to sift through the archives. There’s a great history to the brand, especially one that is rooted in motor-racing. It wasn’t enough to study the timepieces alone, so I also immersed myself with the knowledge from the museum and archived stock. Especially the stories of the Carrera models, which set the tone for the racing DNA in the watches that followed.
