Groupama Team France Regatta TimerModel Timer.Regate.GTF By MATWatches
Based on the MATWatches chronograph case, the watch is characterised by its rock solid monobloc 316L steel case, sapphire crystal dial glass and 100m water resistance, plus a few crucial race-defining differences. In its starting position, the chronograph second hand sits at 2pm. Once activated, it begins a 10-minute countdown where the hand will move from 2pm round the dial, until the last minute where it initiates a beep until the 60 seconds expires. This unique function is designed with the sole intent to help the team fine tune their preparations in the dying moments before the race begins. It is in these moments that races are either won or lost. Only after this countdown does the watch resume function as a normal chronograph with a 24-hour sub dial. The movement itself is a Swiss ISA Quartz movement of metal construction; the sort reserved only for high-end quartz watches, and fully serviceable and adjustable.
The steel case is 44mm, and is comparably thin at just 14mm. Interestingly, lug-to-lug measures 48mm making the watch almost square in shape. The clever lug design coupled with the rubber strap makes it a pleasure to have on the wrist.
Not content with merely providing a watch purpose built for racing which can simultaneously handle some of the most extreme conditions on earth, MATWatches made sure the new limited edition arrives in equally winning style.
Caliber: ISA 8270
Supplied with 3 interchangeable straps: 1 navy rubber strap, 1 navy tactical strap and 1 red rubber strap.
