Other: If you're looking for a vintage chronograph watch reminiscent of iconic Heuer designs without spending a fortune, this rare Clebar chronograph is a solid value play. In fact, the dial and handset are nearly identical to the legendary (and extremely expensive) Heuer Carrera 2447NST that we all know and love. Simply put, it's hard to beat the matte black dial with contrasting bright white sub-registers and tachymeter scale for racing. The reverse panda dial really comes to life in the sun as does the desirable golden yellow patina to the luminous elements. Just like the original Heuer Carrera, this case wears incredibly well on the wrist with fantastic proportions clocking in at ~36mm in diameter. It comes on a comfortable 19mm handmade tan calfskin strap, but really looks great on just about everything!
