TAG Heuer first introduced the Skipper watch in 1968. It was inspired by Intrepid, the groundbreaking vessel that won the America’s Cup race in 1967 and is known for the distinct blue color of its deck. Fast forward to 2023, and the German watchmaker revealed the latest variant of the watch, complete with a new 39mm bezel-less Glassbox of the Carrera chronograph.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper features the distinctive ‘Glass Box’ design featured recently on the TAG Heuer Carrera, an edge-to-edge ultra-clear curved glass flange, the signature circular-brushed Carrera Blue dial, rhodium-plated, faceted hands and applied markers, orange lacquered central seconds hand, the Intrepid shade of teal 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock with the Skipper wordmark, a three-color 15-minute regatta countdown indicator divided into orange, green, and light teal segments at 3 o’clock, the Carrera wordmark at 12 o’clock, and water resistance up to 100 meters.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper edition runs on the in-house Caliber TH20-06 movement, visible from the sapphire caseback, and features bi-directional winding, column wheel and vertical clutch architecture, and an 80-hour power reserve.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper, reference CBS2213.FN6002, retails for $6,750 and is available now as part of the permanent collection from the TAG Heuer webstore, as well as its boutiques and select retailers.
