Heuer Montreal -- Reference Table

 

 Montreal Reference Table

The Montreal model was launched in 1972, with a range of four models -- black, blue and white dials (in steel cases) and a champagne dial (in a gold-plated case).

While many of the Heuer timepieces of the 1960s and 70s were named after racing circuits (Monte Carlo, Sebring, Silverstone, Monza and Jarama, for example), the "Montreal" was not named for the Formula One circuit in Canada. Formula One races in Canada were held at Mosport (near Toronto), through 1977, and the Canadian Grand Prix only moved to Montreal in 1978. Accordingly, we presume that the name "Montreal" was chosen either in honor of the "Expo" (held there in 1967) or in anticipation of the Olympic Games (held there in 1976).

Montreal native Gilles Villeneuve won the inaugural race in Montreal, in 1978, and the Ile Notre-Dame Circuit was renamed in his honor following his death in 1982.
