Hugo Boss’ luxury watch range BOSS Black has released a new timepiece in collaboration with its sailing ambassador Alex Thomson.
The slick all-black regatta timepiece has a Swiss movement and displays hours, minutes, and seconds in a subdial at two o’clock. It also feature special regatta functions; chronograph, alarm and countdown functions, with an audible signal sounding every minute to enable a skipper to keep track of time in the approach to the race start.
The watch has a black checkerboard dial and a counter at 10 o’clock that plays a variable role, displaying the seconds during the countdown; and then, once the race has started, the hours which are more useful to the skipper than the seconds.
The caseback is engraved with a boat, in reference to Thomson and his role as Hugo Boss’ sailing ambassador. Thomson has also raced for several years in the Hugo Boss yacht.
