Heuer is universally known for creating excellent sports watches and at the beginning of the ’60s started with the production of Stopwatches for sailboat races presenting the Heuer Yacht Timer Ref 912/X with different register to measure starting times and racing times. In 1967, the America’s Cup was won by the groundbreaking Intrepid yacht. To celebrate this event, Heuer decided to release in 1968 the Heuer Carrera Skipper reference 7754. This model remained in production for almost 10 years, with a succession of different cases which took inspiration from the Carrera or the Autavia models, but always keeping the legibility and durability necessary for a regatta timer. The main feature of the Heuer Skipper offered here is the 15-minute chronograph recorder with blue, white and red coded markings on the recorder that makes it much easier for the yachtsman to read correspond to the colors of the flags used during the regatta. The tonneau-shaped case in stainless steel is well preserved and integrated jubilee bracelet and a black graduated bezel. The black dial, besides having the multicolored subsidiary dial, presents the date window at 6 o’clock and the decentralized constant seconds at 10 with baton applied numerals. It comes with Tag Heuer box, booklet and warranty.
