    Heuer Carrera, with Shelby Cobra Logo

    With so many brands now seeking to create a motorsports / racing heritage, it's nice to see the watches that actually have this pedigree.

    Here's a Heuer Carrera 45 Dato (circa 1970), with the Shelby Cobra logo.

    Serial number 127282 suggests that this one is from 1970. A Field Sales Manager for Shelby Automotive Company had two dozen of them specially made for the New York Auto Show. The idea: hand them out to the Ford dealers, to motivate them to order the Shelby Mustangs.
