Since the end of the 60s the HEUER SKIPPER was build in the case of Carrera, in the manual-winding Autavia-Compressor-Case and the cases of the automatic Autavia.

Here are the differences of all Heuer SKIPPER – now in new version 2.0 with the elaboration of the different kinds of the Valjoux-Skipper 73464 in different cases with different subdials, the different Skipper 15640 blue with different subdials and the different Easy-Rider Skipper with different subdial-colors. On the Skipper 73464 and 15640 blue it´s proofed by the serials, all differences are in the same serial range.

Till now – all other kinds of Skipper are known seems to be build-together or sometimes original Skipper with service parts from Heuer, build from the parts available in the time of service (dials, hands).

(You know something better? – please give me a feedback to keep the facts clean!)

Please note: This table is responsive and you can scroll horizontal on smaller displays with a scrollbar UNDER the table (or hands on iPads etc).
