The iconic TAG Heuer Skipper timepiece was launched in 1968 to celebrate the Intrepid's victory in the 1967 America's Cup. Since then, it has been considered a unique model, ideal for lovers of retro watchmaking and sailing. Molitor tells you more about the new TAG Heuer Skipper.
Performance to match
The model takes up the heritage and aesthetic codes of the watchmaking House, but the performance is very much up to date. The new model is powered by the TH20-06 calibre, which guarantees an 80-hour power reserve, allowing you to wear the watch all week and take it off at the weekend. In terms of water-resistance, the TAG Heuer Skipper can follow you down to a depth of 100 metres, which is more than enough for sailing. The strap, meanwhile, is water-resistant with its blue fabric mounted on a brushed steel folding clasp.
The nautical world as design inspiration
The latest addition to the Skipper line features a 39 mm stainless steel case, and unlike previous models, its design is not inspired by the Autavia case, but rather by that of the Carrera glassbox. However, the colours are not new. Lagoon Green", "Intrepid Teal" and "Regatta Orange" contrast with the blue dial with its circular brushed finish. At 3 o'clock is the regatta counter, at 9 o'clock a 12-hour totalizer and at 6 o'clock the small seconds. Another striking aesthetic detail is the absence of a bezel. This choice ensures excellent legibility.
