Aquastar Regate from the 1960’s with the Felsa 4000N movement was limited with a 5 minute regatta countdown. And as the regulations changed for regatta’s, a new movement was developed by Aquastar, now with a 10 minute countdown. This time with the help of Lemania’s star designer Albert Piquet (his name is mentioned as inventor on the patent), and soon the new Lemania caliber 1345 was born !
With this new patent (CH563037, US3910362) Aquastar is at the origin of all regatta watch developments which have been made subsequently on this coloured disc model used as regatta countdown with minute indicator. The new Lemania regatta caliber 1345 is derived from the 1341 movement. After the introduction of the new Aquastar Regate the Lemania 1345 movement comes available for other brands as well.
Besides in the Aquastar this Lemania 1345 movement was used in more or less equal regatta timers by Tissot, Heuer, Omega and Lemania themselves as well.
