One of the highlight details sported by the dial is the scale for the ten minutes preceding the regatta start. The watch's designers have provided the distinctive blue and red scale, being aware that the start of the race is all-important as it often determines the leaders and those who are catching up with them during the race.
The successful start requires careful checking of the final preparations and positioning. The blue part of the scale indicates five minutes corresponding to the time the crews use for final information exchanging with their team members on shore. The red part of the scale indicates the five minutes corresponding to the pre-start phase.
