Regular price $0.00 $1,650.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SPECTACULARLY MINTY 1980s AQUASTAR NEWPORT REGATE COUNTDOWN CHRONO.

  • CASE: HEAVY DUTY SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A ROBUST 43mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN(39 ACROSS BEZEL) BY 44.5mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS CASE IS IN SUPER SHARP CONDITION. CHECK OUT THOSE AWESOME THROUGH LINES AND CHAMFERS ON THIS ONE THAT EXTEND INTO THE CROWN-GUARD. I LOVE THAT NOBBY CHRONO PUSHER. BUT, IT'S ALL ABOUT THAT FACETED GOLD PLAQUE BEZEL WITH THE GOLD SCREWS. SUCH A YACHT-ROCKER!. THIS ONE IS IN EXCELLENT PRESERVED CONDITION WITH THE STICKER STILL ON THE CASEBACK.   
  • DIAL: THIS MATTE DIAL IS A TOTAL BABE. NICE AND SIMPLE WITH THE COUNTDOWN REGATE NUMBERS ON THE PERIPHERY AND A FEW SIMPLE APPLIED STEEL MARKERS. THE MAGIC IS WITH THOSE 5 PORTHOLE WINDOWS WHICH REVEAL THE COLOURFUL COUNTDOWN REGATE TIMER DISCS. WHEN YOU PUSH THE CHRONO BUTTON, THE DISCS IMMEDIATELY TURN TO BLUE, AND SLOWLY CHANGE TO ORANGE AND THEN BLACK AS THEY COUNTDOWN. SO MUCH FUN. I REALLY DIG THAT WHITE/BLACK HAND SET WITH THAT MASSIVE RUNNING ORANGE SWEEPER.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS AQUASTAR RUNS ON THE FAMOUS LEMANIA 1345 REGATE TIMER AUTOMATIC. MOVEMENT LOOKS CLEAN. I DO NOT KNOW THE SERVICE HISTORY, BUT WATCH IS RUNNING GREAT AND ALL FUNCTIONS WORK APPROPRIATELY.  

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON THE ORIGINAL H-LINK 2-TONE BRACELET WHICH SHOULD FIT UP TO AN 8" WRIST WITH THE INCLUDED EXTRA LINK.  THIS BRACELET IS ALSO IN QUITE MINTY CONDITION WITH A FEW MINOR HAIRLINE SCRATCHES.  THIS NEWPORT IS SOME COLLECTORS GRADE BUSINESS RIGHT HERE. A TOTAL TIME-CAPSULE PIECE. SUCH A BLAST TO WEAR. AS EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWED BASELWORLD KNOWS, THE 2-TONE THING IS MAKING A BIG COMEBACK. THIS IS THE AUTHENTIC REAL DEAL WITH A TON OF PEDIGREE.
