Commencing in the mid 1960’s Heuer was part of a partnership (with Breitling and Hamilton) that sought to introduce the world’s first automatic chronograph.
Seiko (Japanese) and Zenith (Swiss) were also seeking to be the first to offer these chronographs.
These projects were conducted in secret, as none of the competitors wanted the other companies to be aware of their efforts. Most agree that the Heuer-Breitling  venture was first to introduce their new line of automatic chronographs to the world.
Heuers first automatic chronographs were the Autavia, Carrera and the Monaco. Several of these chronographs are associated with automobile racing and specific drivers. Steve McQueen wore a blue Monaco in the 1971 movie Le Mans. This model is referred to as the “McQueen Monaco”.
