TAG Heuer Limited Edition Carrera Skipper

The reference 7754, nicknamed the “Skipperera” after its Carrera case, was commissioned by Heuer in 1967 to commemorate Emil Mosbacher’s victory on the yacht Intrepid at the America’s Cup, and is now considered to be one of the most collectible vintage Heuers in the world. The “new” Skipper is not a carbon copy of the reference 7754, but a modern interpretation featuring all of the design elements we love from vintage Heuer. The modern 39mm case features the same iconic faceted lugs as the original 35mm Carrera case, plus a domed sapphire crystal offering a similar profile to the plexi used in vintage models. The regatta countdown features the same characteristic bold tri-color layout, but in updated 10-minute intervals. The modern caliber 18 automatic movement allowed for the addition of a date complication, positioned opposite the regatta countdown as a nod to the vintage Heuer Carrera “Dato 45.” This caliber also allowed us to offer the "cyclops" look – meaning that the watch has a single sub-register – in addition to the bold colors of the Skipper. The result is, in our (biased) opinion, one of the coolest chronographs we've seen in a while.
Fewer than 20 examples of the original “Skipperera” reference 7754 have ever been found, making it incredibly rare and sought after among vintage watch collectors. The TAG Heuer Limited Edition Carrera Skipper for fashiontourbillon.com is available in a limited run of 125 pieces, and each piece is individually numbered “XXX/125” around the rim of the sapphire caseback. Each watch will be accompanied by a trio of straps, including a TAG Heuer blue leather strap with Heuer-signed deployant clasp, one grey NATO strap, and one orange NATO strap. A fashiontourbillon.com aged green leather strap is also available for purchase at a discounted price when you purchase the watch, and will be fitted with a Heuer-signed tang buckle.
