Heuer Rowing Stopwatch Reference 403.914
The Heuer Rowing stopwatch reference 403.914 is powered by an antimagnetic-shockproof Heuer Leonidas calibre 7700. The red-outer scale allows a rowing team to measure their average stroke rate per minute. For instance, if the team reaches four strokes at a 5 second interval, the team is averaging 48 strokes per minute. The center hand measures 10 seconds per interval, while the sub-register will time 10-minute sessions.
The exterior of the stopwatch features a hard-shell black case, and a PVD-coated bow. The dial is in fantastic condition without any signs of wear, or aging.
Vintage watches are mechanical objects that can require service of the movements and all these watches have been worn in the past. Since these pieces are vintage or pre-owned, please expect wear and patina from past usage and age.
Mechanical watches do not keep perfect time like a battery-powered watch. In addition, they do require service occasionally and the service can be somewhat costly depending on what the watch requires for optimal timekeeping. Similar to vintage and new automobiles, regular maintenance and care is recommended for the lasting reliability of your timepiece.
Vintage watches are not water resistant and not waterproof, unless rigorously tested and certified otherwise. If dunked in water, the watch can flood and be destroyed. Water can also enter the watch in high humidity environments and damage the movement and dial as well as hands. We suggest not swimming with vintage watches or taking them in a sauna or similarly humid environment.
If dropped, mishandled or otherwise abused, the movement or other parts of the watch can be damaged. Please handle with care.
Care has been taken to try to ensure the watches are running and in good condition. Please note that all watches and items are offered and sold "as is". We hope you enjoy this item and wear it in good health for years to come!
