Another Skipper 7764 with great provenience!

After long time not seeing another discovered Skipper in the Autavia compressor case now another one popped up. The Skipper worked hard on Regattas but is still in good shape – the engraving on the case back is still visible and the bezel just got some minor scratches!
And our friend Manuel took the chance to catch this gem.

The real “Skipper Skipper”!

Let´s introduce a Heuer Skipper 7764 in an Autavia compressor case with “normal” hands and with a serial that fits perfect in the line – and it is the most early one.

It is not only the very early serial that makes this Skipper really fantastic – it is the story behind this toolwatch.

Complete set was kept for 44 years

The early Skipper 7764 – mysterious “put together” but absolut original!

There are so small informations about the Skipper and much less about the early Skipper. We not even know all exactly and the old watchmaker may laugh about the watch enthusiast discussing every litte line on a dial in different color and thickness, any hand with different colors and if the dot is over the 90 or not – sorry, that’s a different kettle of fish 😉 (in-joke!). But all things are simpler than we think.

An example – this old Skipper here.
