Heuer introduced the first Skipper wristwatch in 1968 with the reference 7754 and was the first one in a Carrera case. In the years many other editions were launched and the lot offered here is the second model of Skipper: the reference 7764. It was an adaptation of the Heuer reference 7763 and like all the following models it didn’t use the Carrera case but instead that of the Autavia. The 7764 added a bigger red-white-blue register conferring the dial an asymmetrical look and changed the chronograph configuration to jumping every 30 seconds instead of every minute to account for a 15-minute countdown for a yacht race. It also comes with the unusual MH bezel, which means minutes and hours since on it are depicted both of them. The present lot is offered in really nice conditions with stainless steel case and snap on back. The dial has a really nice charm and is perfect for a sailing lovers and just passionate.
