Heuer Kentucky is a wristwatch by Heuer

In 1977 Heuer presented this wrist chronograph with the self-winding movement Valjoux 7750. Characteristic design feature was the horseshoe-shaped housing with two distinctive screws below the dial.

In subsequent models of the same name, according to that time, one switched to quartz technology. There was a three-hand watch and a LCD watch. The latter has only the typical housing shape with the mechanics model in common, the former merely the name of the watch.
