Aquastar Regate Geneve Yacht Timer
Uurwerk kal. Felsa 4000N
Ø 37.5 mm
Yet again a watch with an incredible feature, the Regate Aquastar Geneve Yacht Timer watch carrying the modified Felsa 4000N caliber movement.
The Regate Aquastar watch has two dial variations one with the name ‘Regate’ Aquastar Geneva, the other with the ‘Star logo’ Aquastar Geneva. The star logo is much less common then the Regate name.
It actually all began with the passion of JeanRichard for sub-marines, and the invention of the turnable bezel, not long thereafter he invented the countdown function. This 5-minute countdown function patented in 1961 was especially designed for sailors, to help them take the best departure during a sailing match.
Once you press the pusher, the 5-red dots on the dial appear and count down 5 minutes, gradually turning silver colored as the minutes slip by.
Among the others Heuer also produced watches with the of the Aquastar Regate technique.
Yes, it has been worn, seen many lakes and open waters, and hopefully won the owner numerous sailing races, now it's your turn to own a piece of history and win some sailing matches of your own...
