Today -- Heuer at the Indy 500 in the 1960s

Today will be the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500, so I thought that it would be fun to show these four images representing Heuer's presence there in the 1960s. So many things have changed, but they still use the Wings and Wheel logo.

Top to bottom, we see a pair of Heuer stopwatches, with the chart converting the time for a lap into the speed for the lap, a Carrera 45 Dato (courtesy of PrimeTimeVintage on Instagram), the Autavia awarded to Mario Andretti for being fastest qualifier in 1966, and an Autavia chronograph with the amazing finish and Wings and Wheel on the dial.
