    Since last evening I'm wearing two of my favorite watch brands on one wrist: Heuer and Aquastar.

    [​IMG]

    This is a Heuer and Aquastar Regate, a yachting, well not really, chronograph. The button resets the seconds hand and the five minutes timer indicated by the five dots. The power for this reset operation comes directly from the button press.

    [​IMG]

    The automatic movement is a Felsa cal. 4000N, enhanced by the timer complication.

    [​IMG]

    I like the bold diver case and the dial showing colors between light silver and dark olive silver.

    No presentation of an Aquatimer watch without a shot of the back.


    Enjoy,


    Mick

    Ahhh..that's a beaut indeed! It was once my favourite watch but I had to let it go to keep body and soul together. I still have the "other" tranny but with sapphire...Wearing this late serial 16800 matte today.

    @Faz thanks! My transitionals are only 66,000 apart. I decided I had to let one go to get another watch in. Decided to post my 16800 8,29 mil for sale earlier today! Yours is a beauty!

    You made the right choice keeping the 16750. The plastic magic combined with the pepsi, quick set and tritium make it the most interesting sports Rolex IMO. The 16800 ain't too shabby though...;)

    Can't you let me know where you have posted it?

    Cheers,
