: If you take a careful look at the chrono function and colors of
: this watch and also read about how this watch model was used
: i.e. in the southern french sailing races, you might come to a
: conclusion on why one would affiliate this watch with
: "yachting". If you have a better wording for such
: watch functions, please be so kind to let everyone on CT know.
Dear friend, just saying - the dial layout looks extremely same as the so called soccer dials.
But of course I would love to see any description that this beautiful watch was used for regatta race starts.
Where did you found the post about using it in french sailings? I only found a description with your words on "thebeautifulwatch"... please give more information.
Of course I don´t want to bash you or you watch, only want to know and learn why it earn the name "Yachting" as normally shown a 5/10 or 15 min countdown. I never saw any real regatta dial like that.
All the best with the sale, it´s an attractive watch,
