Heuer Calculator

Post by koimaster » February 2nd 2022, 12:17pm

We spent a good, long time covering Omega’s interesting chronographs from the 1970s, so now it’s time to shine the light elsewhere. Today, we’re looking at Heuer, and their slide rule-clad chronograph, the Heuer Calculator. While the Breitling Navitimer is probably the best-known mechanical watch with a slide rule bezel, the Heuer Calculator is arguably the coolest (and weirdest).

In the 1970s – while the US and USSR were in a nuclear arms race – Heuer, Omega, and Breitling seemed to be having their own arms race (wrists race?), one of funky chronographs. Introduced in 1972, the Heuer Calculator is much more badass than your standard Ti-83. Although it might take an engineering degree earned 40 years ago to understand, the utility of a mechanical calculator is just plain awesome. If you were looking for a zombie apocalypse watch, this might be the one – just make sure you have a watchmaker in your group of survivors to keep it running.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
