Two questionable Skippers on the market right now, maybe you want to have a closer look.
First will come on Watches of knightsbridge in September, 16th.
“A RARE GENTLEMAN’S STAINLESS STEEL HEUER SKIPPER CHRONOGRAPH WRIST WATCH CIRCA 1972, REF. 73464”
Personal opinion: Yes, kind of rare with a test dial. Or how WoK says: “WITH VERY RARE OVER PAINTED HEUER SHIELD DIAL”
We have seen 3 dials with that print. You can see the old one under the new shield btw… we never seen one Skipper with that dial built in and we´ve seen a lot of Skippers 😉
Nobody knows how and when but it seems a rare later 73464 from the serial but we cant say if the case is the right one from that angle (pusher will let know that). Who knows what happened to that watch. Please look good and inform yourself deeply before you bid on that.
And another: 2nd is this one on chrono24 offered from Juwelier-Sander.de
Case looks a bit polished (not sure), bezel, dial itself and hands looks genuine, but dial seems damaged (inside subdial).
But please, what inside bezel or tension ring is that?
Definitely NOT Skipper legit! So please be sure you got the right glass with tension ring if you buy that. And check the crown.
And to be real sure what Skipper we have here I would ask for serial and case reference, that they could find between the lugs. 1163 needs plexi, 11630/15640 needs mineral glass…
