About this Rego Sport Vintage Chronograph Watch
Vintage manual wind chronographs are one of the most desirable watches within the vintage watch world. These are the types of watches that will steadily appreciate in the coming years; even after the demands of football games, cycling around the countryside and sharing a few beers with a mate.
This telemeter watch is Swiss Made (see bottom of dial at 6 o'clock), in the 1940's with a beautifully clear dial design and funky pushers. The telemeter dial had the ability for it's wearer to measure measure the distance to an event that can be both seen and heard, i.e a torpedo strike and/or lightning strikes....should you be so inclined.
This is a one jewel R. Lapanouse movement and keeps accurate time.
Technically this watch is a chronograph, however often being referred to as a "lap timer" by some. The chronograph's upper sub dial registers 45 minute increments while the lower totalizes 6 hours.
One must manually advance the time to 12 o'clock sharp and also allow the seconds hand to reach 12, both chrono registers will now also be at "0". Pressing the top chrono pusher will start the second hand and the bottom one stop it.
Once the pusher is deployed, the time advances until the other pusher is pressed. It can time 45 minutes increments on the top register and 6 hours on the bottom register. To regain the current time, one has to refer to another timepiece and re-adjust using the tradition push-pull crown.
