In 1965 Heuer entered a partnership with Aquastar and began to distribute the full line of Aquastar watches, including the Aquastar Regate, the first real regatta yachttimer powered by the Felsa 4000N movement. Soon after that, the Heuer logo was added to the dial and was co-branded with both names Aquastar and Heuer.The Felsa 4000N movement with regatta modification has the crown to set the time at 2 o’clock and one pusher at 4 o’clock for start/reset. Under the dial lays the indicator disk coloured silver (as the dial) with a red section for counting the minutes. There are five round holes cut out of the dial, between 10 and 2 o’clock. After a reset the five dots colour red and the sweep second hand return to 60 (0). By releasing the pusher the countdown timer starts and the sweep hand is set in motion. After one minute the first dot changes to silver, another four minutes to go. After 5 minutes all dots are silver and the regatta starts.
Watch is well-worn, with scratches on case and 'aged' dial.
