The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Fellows was kind enough to send some additional photos of the Skipperrera that is to be auctioned this Monday, October 26, so we have added them to OnTheDash.
A few of the additional photos are shown below; see many more in our Skipperrera Gallery, here -- http://www.onthedash.com/chronograph/skipper-ref-7754/.
So that you can find it in the Gallery, the watch being sold is serial number 105919.
The watch is being sold as Lot 59, in the Fellows auction, Monday, October 26, in Birmingham. The catalog link is HERE.
The Skipperrera is one of the "grails" for those who collect the vintage Heuer chronographs. We typically see two to four of these sold publicly each year, and this is the first one to be sold in an auction since June 2019. It will be interesting to watch this one.
: On Monday, October 26, Fellows will be auctioning a
: "Skipperrera". The listing in the catalog is HERE .
: With the Skipperreras, the desirability seems to hinge on a couple
: of factors -- (a) how the blue paint has survived over the
: years, as we usually see some paint loss around the applied
: markers, and (b) how bright and vibrant the colors are,
: particularly on the three segments in the minute recorder. The
: watch being sold by Fellows seems to do well on both counts --
: minimal paint loss around the markers and strong colors on the
: minute recorder.
: We'll hope to add some additional photos and details, in the next
: few days.
