Regatta Ref. 134.603

€6.000 EUR

The Regatta model had a rather interesting beginning since it was first designed as a collaboration between Aquastar and Heuer in the mid-1960s, with the recognizable five circular apertures on the dial (the same concept used for this example from the 1980s).

The bright blue and orange colors used on the dial are eye-catching and serve a very important purpose for the start of a yacht race. It is essentially a 10-minute counter used to countdown to when the yacht has to be at the starting line.

The pusher at two activates the 10-minute counter with the flyback orange hand resetting back to zero and the apertures turning all blue. Then gradually, the indicator turns orange with each full aperture in orange indicating a full minute.

After the full five minutes (i.e. five full orange apertures), then the orange indicator gradually turns into grey with each passing minute, indicating the next five-minute countdown.

This particular example is from Heuer's sportier 600 Series Regatta design, which was introduced in 1980's. This was an interesting series in that it appeared when PVD-coated cases started showing up prominently in regular watch production. There were three colors of the PVD-coating finishes: black, green, and grey.
