REGATTA OTUSA BLACK
The Regatta OTUSA watch movements have been designed to show a numerical 15 minute display countdown and a 5 minute start time. Furthermore, the watches have a 12 hour counter and a date function which is not only hard to integrate altogether but is also rarely seen on Regatta movements. The Regatta OTUSA will be produced in both black and white dial variants and 235 of each watch will be made. In addition, this line bears historical significance because high-grade carbon fibre from the winning 2013 ORACLE TEAM USA AC72 yacht will be incorporated into each of the crowns.
The carbon fibre, taken from the AC72 yacht foils, was used to defend the 2013 America’s Cup and defeat Emirates Team New Zealand. This victory was one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history which saw ORACLE TEAM USA claw back from being 7 points down and just 1 race win away from defeat. The team had to win 8 consecutive races to defend the oldest trophy in international sport; they will be attempting the ‘three-peat’ in the 2017 final for the 35th America’s Cup.
