Lot Details
A Heuer handheld stopwatch from the film Le Mans, A Heuer handheld stopwatch from the film Le Mans,
A Heuer handheld stopwatch from the film Le Mans,
Timing is everything, especially in a race movie as iconic as Steve McQueen's Le Mans. The 1971 picture was considered a commercial and critical failure upon its initial release but in the four decades since, it has evolved into the ultimate racing film because of the effort by McQueen to make the picture, in the actor's words, "pure." Memorabilia of McQueen in Le Mans always goes for a premium and this lot and Lot 209 are two items that are the real stars of the movie.

Heuer nickle plated brass with rubber bezel and protector case, split second timing with 30 minute register, measures 58mm in diameter, not including rubber case. The stopwatch is accompanied by a letter from Solar Productions as receipt for the purchase, dated March 10th, 1976.
