Camaro is a wristwatch by Heuer.

In 1968 this chronograph by Heuer came onto the market. It features a cushion-shaped housing and a mechanical chronograph movement with manual winding. Due to its classical appearance and to the fact that there was still used the old Valjoux manual winding movement, it is highly sought after by collectors.

The name of the watch stems from the Chevrolet Camaro sports car, which from 1967 to 1969 appeared at the famous American car race "Indianapolis 500" as the official Safety Car (Pace Car).
