Getting off to a good start. This is precisely the purpose of this groundbreaking regatta chronograph – with a patent to prove it – equipped with a sweep countdown timer that can be set from 1 to 10 minutes. Victory comes down to those crucial minutes before the starting gun goes off while maneuvering to cross starting line with optimal positioning and perfect timing. Following the countdown, the bi-directional seconds hand starts moving in a clockwise direction and begins timing the race. Clear, intuitive and ac- curate functionality from Ulysse Nardin, with the support of Artemis Racing, the company’s official part- ner for the 35th America’s Cup.
