Pre-Owned (Like New) Tag Heuer 39mm Carrera Chronograph Skipper, Blue Dial, Blue Fabric Strap, Ref. CBS2213.FN6002

The Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph Skipper, reference CBS2213.FN6002, is a standout timepiece inspired by the natural synergy between sailing and motorsports. Designed with a relentless passion for precision and speed, this watch features a distinctive color scheme that pays daring tribute to Tag Heuer’s rich sailing heritage. Its iconic design ensures that it remains a bold statement piece in any collection.

Set against the Signature Carrera Blue dial, the light shades of teal on the twin counters at 3 and 9 o’clock recall the deck of the Intrepid, the America’s Cup boat that inspired the original Skipper watch in 1968. The three-color regatta countdown indicator combines a vivid orange segment to alert the crew on the 5 minutes remaining before departure, a green one to recall the boat’s rigging, and light teal to echo the color of the Intrepid’s deck. The watch includes an ultra-clear curved glass flange from edge to edge for rapid time-telling. The Skipper edition integrates the caliber TH20-06 movement with bi-directional winding and 80 hours of power reserve. This watch from 2023 includes its original box and papers.

Description

TAG Heuer watches can be seen on the wrists of many celebrities who are attracted to the brand’s iconic watches of the fifties, sixties and seventies.  TAG Heuer was formed in 1985, when the Techniques d’Avant Garde group purchased a controlling interest in Heuer watchmakers.  Often referred to simply as “Heuer” when discussing vintage timepieces, the company was formed in 1860 by Edouard Heuer.  From its roots, Heuer has been affiliated with the chronograph watch and automobile racing.  For some watchmakers, the chronograph was either ignored or offered as one model among many, whereas for Heuer, the chronograph took a primary position.  Heuer produced his first chronograph in 1882, then five years later patented an oscillating pin, which simplified the workings of the time keeping with the stopwatch functions of the watch; it is still in use today by many watchmakers.  Heuer went on to develop the first stopwatch accurate to 1/100 of a second and split-second timers that allowed a person to time multiple events.  In 1933, Heuer introduced chronographs for the dashboards of automobiles and airplanes, dubbed the Autavia for a combination of “AUto” and “AVIAtion”.  There were one pusher chronographs, two pusher chronographs, two and three sub-register chronographs, and three-register chronographs with day, date and month.

In the 1950s, Heuer produced watches to be sold by Abercrombie and Fitch.  When Jack Heuer was recounting how he had developed the iconic Carrera chronograph, he said the CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch had started giving the new models names, which Jack Heuer decided he would continue with the Carrera.  In addition to innovative design, Heuer chronographs tended to use movements that have since earned a reputation amongst collectors as some of finest ever produced, including the Valjoux 72 and the Lemania 5100.  These movements together with the clean, beautiful design, make Heuer chronographs some of the most sought- after watches.  Today, TAG Heuer celebrates this history with vintage inspired models that reference the earlier models, as well as new models such as the Monaco V4 that evoke a racing engine, and also a new model luxury digital watch.  TAG Heuer watches will likely continue to be seen on many wrists to come.
