    Yes, specifically for a regatta. The countdown timing coincides with audible and visual alerts to the start of a race. The boat cannot cross the starting line until the race has officially begun, so it must be timed accordingly. One of the cool things about this piece is the fact that it has a special minute counter that records every 30 seconds, so the countdown needle moves 1/2 a notch at 30 seconds then to the full minute at 60 seconds.

    1675 with a new-old insert, courtesy of @Drawarms. Amazing how much a nice faded pepsi changes the look of the watch. Loving it.
