Heuer Regatta – Automatic Yacht Timer

Excellent condition Heuer automatic yacht timer wristwatch. This watch is used for timing yacht races with its unique countdown dial. It is an automatic wristwatch that can be used as any regular wristwatch, telling the time with hours, minutes and seconds. The button at the 2 position starts and stops the countdown timer and the crown at the 4 position winds the movement. The 15 minute countdown is viewed through the apertures in the top centre of the dial.  A rotating plate under the dial turns the colours from blue, slowly to red, then the read and then back to the dial colour. When the countdown timer turns to the dial colour, that is when the yacht race begins and you can cross the start line. The purpose of this function is so that yachts have got 15 minutes to manouvre themselves to the start line, the skilled yachtsman will be able to do so and cross the line as the hooter sounds. The case is stainless steel and is a high sided sturdy case in the style of the Autavia wristwatches, it has got a 60 minute bezel which appears to be a fixed bezel, the case has got some marks on it as it has probably been used for yachting purposes. Attractive black dial with bright orange sweep second hand and black PVD case. It comes on black leather strap with steel genuine Heuer pin buckle.  All functions work perfectly.  Crown and pusher is original to the watch Width is 42 mm excluding the crown, 45 mm including the crown, lug to lug is 48 mm and it is 16 mm thick
