THE HISTORY BEHIND 1960 RACING

The 1960s was the first real golden age of car racing. In 1960 Ferrari dominated the scene at Le Mans with manufacturers such as Maserati and Porsche in the peloton as well while Cooper and Lotus were at the top of Formula 1. It was also the year when Mickey Thompson became the first person to exceed 400 mph in a race car; the Challenger 1.

Motor Racing has always been one of the most important industries for the development of wrist watches, giving the drivers the ability to time their own laps with Heuer on the forefront. In 1960 Heuer celebrated the 100th year of the invention of the stopwatch, with a brand new line of stopwatches on wrist straps, making it easier to wear for race drivers, referees and coaches as well as military personnel.

HOW DOES A TACHYMETER WORK?

With a tachymeter, you can calculate the average speed based on how many seconds it takes a vehicle to travel a fixed distance, say 1 km or the like.

1) Start the chronograph by pushing the upper button

2) After the vehicle has traveled the distance, stop the chronograph with the same button.

3) Observe the position of the second hand and read the outer bezel. If stopped at 80, it took 45 seconds to travel 1 km, which comes down to an average speed of 80 kph.

4) Reset by pushing the lower button
