: I am looking for a vintage 1990 seiko yacht timer.
: two pictures of manual Skippers which have
: the crown and 2 buttons on the right with
: Valjoux 7730 mvt. listed. They have the
: truncated ellipse shaped case except for one
: manual that has a round 60s Carrera like
: Regatta: The only Heuer reference I know of is
: the 1985/86 catalog which has two models the
: Regatta 134.60x and Stylish Regatta.
: 134.50x. Both have the 5 colored disk
: countdown dials. They are made by Aquastar
: (go to http://www.aquastar.ch and click on
: collections) and are named Regate Newport
: and Regate Olympique respectively. The crown
: and one button are on the right, the mvt. is
: Lemania cal.1345. An earlier 1960s Aquastar
: model was marketed as a Heuer having both
: Aquastar Regate and the Heuer logo on the
: dial. This watch had 5 disk countdown dial,
: single button, Felsa mvt., and Aquastar
: signed back.
: The very nice picture submitted by Jeff Low is
: a Heuer Regatta model 134.602 which is the
: same as the Aquastar Regate Olympique.

: chronographs via the web among which are
: these brands: Omega , Memosail, Breitling,
