The Rise Of The Skipperera

Post by koimaster » February 17th 2021, 7:54pm

The opening of the TAG Heuer Museum, in Switzerland in January 2008, was a magical moment for collectors. After years of studying the most famous Heuer timepieces in books and on websites, we were finally able to see them in the metal. There they were, on display: The Monaco chronograph worn by Steve McQueen in the filming of Le Mans. A recreation of the strap and stopwatch worn by John Glenn as he orbited the earth. And the "Time-of-Trip," Heuer's first dashboard timer, from 1911. But there was one oddball chronograph that seemed to have crashed the party.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
