The new chronograph guarantees all three with a clear, concise dial and accurate Regatta calibre. The stunning sports timepiece merges function and style with a refined, elegant design that subtly wears the teams colours with pride. Blue, red and white are featured throughout the dial cementing the partnership and standing out against the black watch face. The inner bi-directional bezel discreetly changes from white, red and blue adding a relevant, sophisticated touch.
Legibility is vital with the Super-LumiNova coated white hour, minute and seconds hands and indices contrasting against the black dial. At 3 o’clock the America’s Cup logo is clearly stated and repeated on the case back. The beautiful movement is half exposed showcasing the intricate, skilful work of the engineers at Bremont.
The modern yet timeless 43mm dial is framed by the scratch resistant, stainless steel case for a stunning finish. Water resistant to 100 metres, the Regatta AC II is certainly up for the task of racing at professional levels. With a power reserve of 42 hours, the instrument is a reliable companion for the competitive sailors.
Opt for a stainless steel bracelet or Temple Island blue rubber strap to secure the Regatta AC II firmly to the wrist.
