  • 豪雅,「Skipper - Skipperera」7753型號,罕有精鋼計時腕錶,約1970年。

    The Skipper Carrera nicknamed the "Skipperera", was the first of the skipper models to be made. Paying homage to and taking colour references from the 1967 America's cup winner the "Intrepid". It was a very limited production and there are thought to be only very few examples in the market and to date only about 20 are known. An identical example was sold recently at Bonham's New Bond St, London for £81,250 on 20th June 2018.

    Skipper Carrera 綽號 "Skipperera",是當年第一款製作的Skipper系列。這款式是特別向1967年美洲杯帆船賽冠軍"Intrepid"隊致敬,並于設計上參考其色彩。 這款式當年非常小量生產,據認為只有極少數量尚在市場中,迄今為止只出現過約20多個。最近的記錄是在2018年6月20日于倫敦Bonhams的New Bond St以81,250英鎊的價格出售了一個相同的款式。
