    Any idea what this vintage Heuer Skipper is worth?

    There is a vintage Heuer Skipper 1564 on eBay. Just doing some research to figure out what a reasonable offer should be. Thanks in advance.

    Take the "figure" you have in mind and divide by two, then take that number and multiply by 0.025 and there you go!

    Seriously, try looking at the completed listings that actually sold and run a average.

    A friend is truly a prize indeed, others not so much. So if I lead you believe you're in the latter, please read........

    There's a decent one on the bay at this moment asking $8600. CL's look like 3G neighborhood to 9 G's(wow). Easy peasy.
    Thank you, I'm flattered, but, please don't click any "Likes" for me (unless there's a prize for "most likes")?

    I know that Heuer and regatta chronos are commanding a tremendous premium currently, but still I would be concerned about that type of investment for what is essentially a mid-tier generic movement in a less-popular C-shape case. This is exactly the type of watch whose price will plummet when the bubble pops.

    I completely agree with this assessment but if I were in the market for a 1564 I would probably keep looking. A black dial version sold recently for about $6700 on eBay sans bracelet but in better condition. The watch in question has a spot on dial, incorrect chrono seconds hand, lume loss on minutes hand, bezel and case not in best condition, no pic of movement, no returns accepted. Type of bracelet doesn't add much value IMO. I wouldn't go over $5000 and since the seller says he'll reject low ball offers I wouldn't even bother. But I haven't been following Skipper prices much for a couple years so maybe I'm off here.

    On the more diserning end of the market a NOS blue 15640 sold for $18K last month...
