The very funky Wakmann Regate

While this isn’t the first time we’ve offered a regatta timer on our site –we rather like them and are constantly seeking them out– we haven’t come across too many of the super cool, jumbo sized Wakmann Regates from the 1970s. Rarer still, is finding a gold plated example in such excellent, unpolished condition. Its multi-colored dial is vibrant and dynamic with its bold contrasting chapter rings, vividly punctuated by bright orange chronograph hands… Buy here for $2,350.

What a watch this is. It shouldn’t work with so many contrasting colours, multiple crowns and a rather gaudy gold case, but it does. It really does.
