    Any tips to check the authenticity of an early Skipper please ?
    Looks good at the moment but I would very much appreciate any help. Big chunk of money required but an excited about this!
    Many thanks for any feedback
    Cheers

    A couple photos would go a long way, please make sure they're clear and close-up where possible

    Well here she is with original strap and buckle https://www.flickr.com/gp/186498718@N07/084192
    Would you believe that as I search for an insurance value one very large auction house suggested £3-£4000 and one refused to even consider as it wasn’t in their league (I’m paraphrasing)
    Is this typical of the bigger auctioneers?

    I see no reason to suspect it isn't genuine, and the parts all look correct. For values you might want to do a quick Google on Heuer price guides, previous sales etc
