This regatta start timer has a series of 5 red dots that gradually change colour to white during the 5 minute count down from first warning signal to start. It comes with its original tag “LEONIDAS, WATCH FACTORY, Saint-Imier”, and the adhesive sticker on the back giving the reference number 349. The back of the tag says “Seglarstartur”, meaning that it comes from the Swedish market. The chrome-nickel case is 58 mm in diameter. The very nice, dust cap protected, fly-back movement appears to be untouched, and the small, glazed compartment of spare parts is a very charming extra! We date this yacht timer to ca 1940s.
