This Fab. Suisse regatta start timer has been around, probably unused, since the 1930s. The tell tale indicators are: blued steel hands, Art Deco numbers and a non shock absorber balance wheel. The beautiful, numbered and quite untouched movement has reference number 3364, and the serial number 1411254. Note the engraving: “Hier unten Ersatzstücke”. It means that there are spareparts under cover! This is a typical feature that Excelsior Park included in their pocket chronograph and timer movements, enabling any competent watchmaker to keep the movement functioning even after shocks caused by accidental dropping and/or intensive, long use. The diameter of the chrome-nickel case is 49 mm.
