The big, bold Wakmann Regate ref. 9804.

Well-known by regatta and yacht timer fans, this classic Lemania-powered chronograph brings about as much subdued color to your wrist as you’re ever likely to find. Wakmann, the former US importer of Breitling watches, hit a home run with these sizable pieces, and here’s a few of the unique features that make it special:

  • Chronograph with both chrono seconds and minute hands stacked at the center of the watch

  • Inner, non-rotating regate/regatta timer + tachymetre bezel

  • Inner, rotating, fully exposed date wheel that aligns with day ring to depict full month calendar

  • Simultaneous current date window

There’s a lot of reasons to like this timepiece beyond just its fantastic condition. Considering the size, color, and scarcity of these models, pick up this beauty to up your goldtone game and bring some much needed spring hues into your collection!

Function - This watch winds by the natural motion of your arm; we recommend winding the crown clockwise 10-15 times to initially power the watch. The chronograph function is initiated after winding by pressing the top pusher to start the timing, pressing the top pusher to stop, and pressing the bottom pusher again to reset the chronograph. With the crown all the way in you manually wind the watch; pull it out one position and you can quickset the date indicator in the window at 3 o’clock; pull the crown out all the way and you set the time.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. We guarantee that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
