SAILOR CHRONOGRAPH | STEEL | FIRST SERIES 400450 WITH CALIBER FELSA 4000N | AUTOMATIC | 36.5MM (39.5MM WITH CROWN) | MINUTE COUNTER WITH RED MINUTE RACE COUNTDOWN PUSHER & FLYBACK FUNCTION | 1970 | VERY NICE MODEL | SWITZERLAND
The 1970 Regate offered here belongs to the first generation of this model. Today these collector's watches enjoy cult status.
The steel case with sunray dial, the brand and model name in the center and the distinctive racing counter are typical. The watch is optically and technically in a very beautiful and technically perfect condition. In this great collector's condition, the first generation of the Aquastar Reate 4000N is difficult to find.
The timer works perfectly. After pressing the countdown at 4 o'clock, the counter starts backwards from 60 to 0. After one minute, the first circle changes from red to silver. After 5 minutes all circles are silver and the regatta begins.
1964 became the first Aquastar Regate yacht timer marketed. These steel watches produced by Aquastar have the brand name on the dial and a minute race countdown pusher especially for sailing races. Today these collector's watches enjoy cult status.
The founder Frédéric Robert was an experienced diver and developed diving and yacht watches under the brand name Aquastar based on his passion and expertise. This was the first brand to develop the so-called lollipop design and to patent the counting ring within the watch caliber.
An Aquastar was the only watch on the first historically deepest dive - the DeepSea Challenge to Mariannengraben on January 23, 1960. The watches became particularly popular through the films by Jacques Cousteau and his team, who wore the diving watches in their 1960s films.
