Omega Replica Seamaster Chronograph Regatta Countdown Timer Watch For Men

In 2005, a special version of the Omega Seamaster Chronograph Regatta Countdown Timer replica was developed by OMEGA particularly for sailors, with an enlarged case diameter of 44mm to make room for a new function: the regatta countdown timer.

A counter at 9 o’clock, divided into the same three colours, gives a constant overview of the total elapsed time, with the central red chronograph hand counting down the final seconds to the start.

This highly functional diving timepiece featuring Regatta Countdown Timer is fitted with a high-precision self-winding mechanical movement – OMEGA calibre 3602 – with a power reserve of 44 hours. Steel or titanium models are available with a screw-in back that ensures water resistance to a depth of 300 metres.

OMEGA’s regatta countdown timer comprises a special dial with a semicircle of 5 dots. Starting the chronograph at the first warning signal triggers the countdown mechanism, which clearly indicates the time remaining until the start as the dots gradually fill with a different colour as each successive 5-minute period elapses, starting black, then turning to blue and red. Timing the start of a regatta is crucial to a skipper, since he has to position the yacht to ensure that it crosses the starting line as near to the gun as possible (crossing the line too early can result in a penalty).

The steel Omega Seamaster Chronograph copy watch has a black aluminium ring on a stainless steel bezel, whereas the titanium version has a brushed steel ring on a titanium bezel.
