Frederique Constant Revives Vintage '90s Regatta Timer For Yachting Purists

Sep 17, 2019

Frederique Constant Frederique Constant captures the essence of what a true regatta watch is supposed to do with the re-issue of its Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown watch, originally launched in 1997. The most important part of a yacht race unfolds in the 10 minutes before it begins, when sailors need to jockey their vessels into the best start position without crossing the imaginary starting line. The offence, known as barging the line, can result in steep penalties and even disqualification in a professional race. It’s also important not to hit another boat while maneuvering into position before the final gun, all the while raising and lowering the sails to hold a position as close to the line as possible. This leaves enough time for no more than a quick glance at a watch to track the seconds to the gun, and a regatta watch therefore needs to be highly, instantly readable. Frederique Constant Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown. Frederique Constant Most regatta watches are chronographs with demarcated 10-second markings that guide you up to the countdown, rather than actually counting down to the gun. The Frederique Constant Yacht Timer counts down, using a graphic display of five dots at the top of the dial, with each dot representing one minute. The top button activates an initial five-second countdown, slowly turning all the points from white to blue. Five minutes has passed when all five points are colored. The second countdown marks the last five minutes before the race begins, and this time all five points gradually turn orange. When the final and fifth point is orange and the second hand strikes noon, the regatta is on. Frederique Constant Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown. Frederique Constant Few brands keep a yacht timer in their collections for very long – most are issued as limited editions – which makes this a rarity. After all, the complication is so specific that its functionality beyond the regatta is limited to timing eggs or clocking Usain Bolt running the 100 meters. There are three versions: a two-tone rose gold plated and stainless steel; a rose gold plated; and a stainless steel. Straps are leather, steel or rubber. Prices range from $3,195 to $3,495.
