It looks like it will be a UN kind of a day. Enjoy your Sunday. M4

Aaah the Marine Tourbillon is the one which tempts me a lot! Thanks for these pictures, and I hope to see more of them. [nt]

It's a beautiful greyish-green color with an engraving of the America's Cup racing sailboat from Sweden, Artemis - goddess of the hunt!



Backside is pretty good too.

Thanks for looking. M4

Very nice, great to see such a complication! Would you be kind and describe it to us? Do you set the number of minutes for the countdown and the launch it? Does it also do chronograph? Best, É. [nt]

Yes & yes.

The pusher at 10 moves the yellow arrow countdown hand in one minute increments up to 10 minutes. Once the countdown hand is set, the pusher at 2 starts the yellow-tipped seconds hand moving COUNTERCLOCKWISE until the countdown is complete. Then, it automatically reverses itself and moves CLOCKWISE acting like a regular chronograph.
If the countdown hand is not engaged, the chronograph functions like a normal chronograph with the initial push on the pusher at 2.
I'll try to link a video.

I just realized you could be referring to this Grand Feu . . .

The enamel dial adds depth and character. UN is carving out a nice place for itself in the fired enamel dial niche. M4

Both very nice [nt]

Why do those two get less wrist time? (nt)

Good question Ronald.

For the Regatta, it's simply a matter of wanting to keep it pristine. It's a lifetime watch for me and is very limited (35 total), so I want to maintain an "as new" condition.
It's a little more complicated on the Tourbillon but suffice to say that I'm looking for the optimal strap solution and haven't found it yet.
Thanks for looking.

Strap

If the hands are blued steel (it's difficult to see in the pics) a blue gator would be a nice match. If you want it more sporty, blue with white stiching to take up the enamel color?
Just my 0.02.

The hands and numerals are black.

I may try a bracelet if UN has one that fits.
Thanks for your thoughts.
M4

Both good reasons,thanks. (nt)
