Cowes Week watch
BOSS Watches has introduced a new sailing watch, the BOSS Black Regatta watch. Packed with features for sailing enthusiasts, this functional, practical yet stylish timepiece is the Official Watch of Cowes Week.
The new BOSS All Black regatta watch, with its legible dial and its chequered background, reverse-graduated countdown scale, well-defined counters and colour-coding, is designed to facilitate quick and easy read-off of the relevant information. The counter at 1000 plays a variable role, displaying the seconds during the countdown; and then, once the race has started, the hours.
Powered by a Swiss Technology movement composed of parts entirely made in Switzerland, the Regatta watch proves useful before, during and after the races combing leisure and sport in one timepiece. In addition to displaying the hours, minutes, the seconds in a sub dial at 2 o’clock, this model also boasts chronograph, alarm and countdown functions, with an audible signal sounding every minute to enable the skipper to keep track of time in the approach to the race start.
The steel case of this rugged and reliable watch is water-resistant to 10 ATM and features rubber-coated pushers to facilitate grip and handling while the rubber strap bears the BOSS logo, and the back is engraved with a depiction of the boat. At the helm of a state-of-the-art sailboat and with a timepiece such as the BOSS All Black regatta watch on his wrist, Alex Thomson and his team are certainly equipped for outstanding performances.
Retail price of the watch is £485.
