Heuer Regatta Chronograph Pewter PVD ref 134.602 circa 1980’s

$4,250.00

A fine condition example Heuer Regatta chronograph pewter PVD ref 134.602 circa 1980’s

We admittedly were not previously the biggest fans of this configuration Heuer Yacht Timer. Didn’t care for the oh so prominent round windows display at the top of the dial. Surely very practical and easy to view, but just not the right aesthetic for us!

That said, this model with its quiet brushed finish pewter PVD case and bracelet, it’s superb condition, and it’s retro looks has earned a place in our heart. This Heuer Regatta, or yachting count down timer is entirely original in every respect and appears to have had very little use, and certainly no abuse. No edge wear of the pewter PVD coating, all original tritium lume, retaining the bright fluorescent orange of the constant center seconds hand without any fading, and without nicks, dings, or scratches to the rotating elapsed time bezel or mineral glass crystal. Complete with original Jubilee style bracelet with flip lock deployant clasp, also in pristine condition without wear of the PVD coating.

It is definitely the superb condition, and the unfamiliar and pleasing  “soft” pewter finish though out contrasting with the with sweep hand, that endears us to the appearance of this distinctly 80’s design. In our research, we see other variations of this model, including later versions with a flat link bracelet, that are not as compelling as the version offered here.

Operation: The 5 windows each gradually advance from blue to red in conjunction with the advancing of the constant center seconds hand over 5 minutes. After 5 minutes each of the the windows successively change from red to gray for the next 5 minutes until all the windows appear gray after 10 minutes have elapsed.

Whether you are preparing for the America’s cup, or timing your hard boiled egg, this watch will allow you to carry out this timing task efficiently. And if wearing to a Sunday dockside patio brunch, you are assured to be the center of attention at the table, for at least the first 5 minutes of conversation!

Details of the Heuer PVD Regatta ref 134.602: 43.mm diameter tonneau shaped cushion case. Powered by Lemania caliber 1345 movement with constant center seconds. Signed Heuer crown. Mineral glass crystal. Original jubilee link style Heuer signed bracelet with deployant clasp and flip lock will fit 7.5 inch wrist. Rotating elapsed time bezel.
