Yesterday, TAG Heuer and HODINKEE launched the latest HODINKEE collaboration: a new version of one of the most sought-after and rarest of vintage Heuer watches. The new version of the Heuer Skipper featured the same colorful dial as the original, a wrist-friendly size, and a classic Carrera case. We and TAG Heuer loved what we came up with, and we hoped the community would as well – and we’re very happy to say that the response was overwhelmingly positive, with all 125 pieces sold out very shortly after they became available to purchase in our Shop.
Several new HODINKEE x TAG Heuer Skipper owners joined us later that day for a private celebration over snacks and custom cocktails, and a great time was had by all. Guests were welcomed by the HODINKEE team, including COO Eneuri Acosta, and TAG Heuer North America President Kilian Müller. Those who wished to were able to pick up their new Skippers as well.
For more on how the design of the HODINKEE x TAG Heuer Skipper came together, check out our post from yesterday, which goes pretty deep not only on the collaboration itself, but also into the history of the original Skipper, as well as the other vintage Heuer from which we drew inspiration, the Dato 45 Chronograph. Huge thanks to everyone who joined us last night, to TAG Heuer, and to the HODINKEE community for your support!
