Well you certainly don't a lot of these around, not with the Heuer print anyway.
Back in the days where being rich meant racing boats all over the place, the regatta chronograph was made to let sportsmen know when exactly the horn will blow, incorporating a 5-minute timer with the sweeping second instead of a 30-minute subdial. The world moves in 5 minutes, better get ready.
Adjust the time with the crown 2'O, and work the chronograph with the 4'O crown. Doesn't get much simpler that that. Coming in with all original parts, the Heuer Aquastar Regate has a nice patina on all the hands, sweeping atop a brillant sunburst dial.
Fans of Heuer have better snap this guy up fast.
