INTRODUCING THE STEINHART MARINE REGULATEUR
Worn and Wound
A regulator is a watch that has subsidiary registers for the different timekeeping elements—separate sub-dials for the hours, minutes, and active seconds. Dating back to the late 1600s, these timekeepers were primarily used as a point of reference by watchmakers to set the time against. A few weeks back, we wrote about one such example from Christopher Ward. That watch took a decidedly contemporary approach in its execution, featuring a blacked out case and a dial inspired by cockpit clocks.
