A brand that is perhaps not well known with the masses. But Ulysse Nardin definitely made itself heard with the arrival of this new Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta. A watch with 650 parts and the most important function, except for telling time, is the regatta chronograph with count-down and count-up function. An essential feature for competitive sailing events.
The purpose of a regatta chronograph is not only to track racing time. More importantly, it is to count down the critical minutes before the racers cross the starting line. The ‘Fleet Race’, which takes place on a course marked by buoys, begins with a five, seven or ten-minute countdown at the end of which the yachts begin sailing the course. During this decisive interval, the competitors strategically position themselves on the starting line in order to cross the line as close as possible to the starting signal.
The Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta is one of the finest regatta timers on the market
The Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta is housed in a robust stainless steel case with the in-house UN-155 caliber. The regatta feature is easily located at the center of the blue or white dial.
The regatta feature can be started with the pusher located at the 10 o’clock position. It moves in a counterclockwise direction when the count-down starts. At the same time, the two-way seconds hand of the chronograph ticks away the seconds. Also in a counterclockwise direction until the countdown comes to an end. When the countdown reaches zero signaling the start of the race, the seconds hand instantly starts moving in the clockwise direction. Than, the timing of the race begins.
The video below the specs shows it all. Enjoy!
