The Heuer Skipper sailing chronograph was very different from other Heuer models. The production volumes were very low: the watches were made only to order in series of about 50 pieces. The first Skipper models were ref. 7753 versions. They were made in the 1960s and initially used Heuer Carrera cases. All later versions used Heuer Autavia cases, and some watches even had the same ref. number as the Autavia models.
