    FC Yacht

    I have a FC Yacht timer model and I need help for more info.

    The watch has a custom logo and I have no idea what is for.
    It looks like a 2001 model and I found out how the pusher operates the second and circles as well.

    What I am more interested is what is the logo for and why was the watch released?
    Also, why the swiss made is missing?
    Nevertheless, I cannot find proper info for the reference code FC298x3Y5/6

    Thanks for any help.

    Here are some pics of it:

    Hi, ChristiT! I come across FC Yacht timers (sometimes also called regattas) on Ebay from time to time and very often the dial of a sportier version comes with a custom logo and optionally without swiss made label. I suppose it must deal with promotion of this model through yacht clubs or similar companies. The proprietory movement was developed together with TNG and it was a first watch to incorporate new Olympic regatta countdown rules. Peter Stas acknowledged that about of 3000 yacht timers were made in total by FC. A classier version came with a chronometer certificate. A sportier one came either with a steel or solid platinum bezel.
    Here's mine platinum bezel regatta (still needs a lume dot fixed)

    Thanks for the answer and all details!

    How do you know if it is a steel or platinum bezel?

    The seller told so, but a platinum bezel version was referenced on swisstime.ch site. Also I have an extra plain case of this model with golden letters on bezel. The texture of two bezels is different, the platinum one is also warmer to the touch than the steel version. The reference numbers are also different FC-298X3A5/6 and FC-298X3Y5/6, although I never came accross the official description of the letters А and Y.
    Talking about your watch, now I think that the nephew of Peter Stas (and founder of TNG brand) has been participating in Cowes Week sailing regatta and those watches were given to yachtsmen. On ebay there was an FC yacht-timer, logoed Sunsail for the same reason.
