Get ready to get your socks knocked off.....this is always a good way to start off a post, it makes it sound really compelling and provocative, which this is, especially if you are a watch aficionado. Gill has released their "Regatta Master Watch II", a title that aptly fit their original Regatta Master watch, but doesn't quite say enough about their newest gadget, potentially "Master Brain" or "Laptop on your wrist" may describe this gem a bit better.
The lightweight, new and improved Regatta Master Watch II from Gill is designed specifically for competitive sailors. Water resistant to 50 meters, features include a stopwatch, countdown
timer, compass, calendar and alarm, all displayed on a large digital screen. Serious racers will enjoy the countdown feature that gives a sound signal every minute, and in the last minute prior to the race start, the seconds count down in a large full screen display for ease of viewing. The synchronization feature allows sailors to readjust their timings to the closest minute at any time in the sequence. The large buttons on the sides of the watch help avoid any accidental ʻmiss-pressʼ in the vital pre-start.
With a power saving sleep-mode, battery life is lengthened and when the time does come to change the battery, a simple coin will remove the back cover, and once re-sealed, the watch remains totally waterproof – quick and easy, without the necessity to send the watch away. There is an international dual-time facility so that two different world times may be displayed consecutively, whilst for night-use thereʼs a powerful electro luminescent backlight. The hard-wearing wrist strap completes the stylish design.
Priced just a little higher than its older brother @ $175, the Gill Regatta Master Watch II is set to debut November 20th, just in time for the Holiday gift season. Sound Boatworks is currently accepting pre-orders on our website as well as over the phone, make sure to secure a place in line as with the expected popularity of this hot little guy, it may be out of stock by Christmas.
