With no less than 230 mechanical components and 5 bidirectional motors, the Calibre S guarantees following functions:

  • Intuitive reading the chronograph with 1/10th of a second accuracy
  • Simple timing, measurement of split times and successive times
  • Perpetual calendar, retrograde, until 2099
  • Regatta countdown, arbitrarily set from -10 to -1 min.
  • The central hand runs counterclockwise in the "regatta" mode, clockwise after an expired countdown as soon as the chronograph is automatically activated.

Functions:

There are three modes: "Time", "Chrono" and "Regatta" mode. A pressure on the crown is sufficient to switch from one mode to the next. The display of the three modes is done by central hands (hour, minutes, seconds) and allows simple and intuitive reading. Thanks to the bi-directional motors of the Calibre S the central hand can advance counterclockwise in the "Regatta" mode. After expired countdown the chronograph is automatically activated and the central hand moves clockwise again. The dial of the Aquaracer Calibre S Regatta Chrono is equipped with two semi-circular counters at 4:30 and 7:30 h.

Double safety clasp and extension system so that the watch can be worn over a diving suit
