Eduard Heuer founded the Heuer Watch Company in 1860 in St. Imier, Switzerland. In 1911, Heuer introduced the first automobile dashboard chronograph called the "Time of Trip." This timepiece revolutionized the world of automotive racing because it enabled the pilots and co-pilots to keep track of their lap times. In 1914 they changed the sports world once again with the introduction of the first wrist worn chronograph. Heuer’s dominance of the stopwatch market continued into the 1970s and 1980s, when electronic stopwatches finally dethroned them.
Throughout its history, Heuer produced stopwatches for a broad range of applications, including industrial, science and sports timing. Check out Heuer’s history on the excellent Heuer-dedicated sites, Calibre 11 (www.calibre11.com) and OnTheDash (www.onthedash.com).
