MATWATCHES, located in the very heart of Paris, near the Place de la Madeleine, specialises in the design and manufacture of special made-to-order editions of Swiss mechanical watches with automatic winding for professionals. Featuring the highest quality materials and regularly tested in the most extreme conditions, watches from MATWATCHES are endorsed by various elite army units such as the French Foreign Legion and the US Naval Air Force.
MATWATCHES has created a special edition Timer Régate in homage to the sailors of Groupama Team France, which would perpetuate the spirit of SEA – AIR – LAND. The official Timer of Groupama Team France is a technical and functional product which is easily identified by its 316L steel casing, its Régate Timer function and its strap with very high resistance against shock, strain, bad weather and extreme conditions. The luminous figures on its dial are made in Super Luminova BGW9 and its reinforced sapphire glass offers readability in all conditions including underwater and at night. The Team France logo reinforces the unique character of this Timepiece. This timepiece will be delivered with 3 interchangeable straps and a tool.
About Groupama Team France
In 2013 Franck Cammas, Michel Desjoyeaux and Olivier de Kersauson created Team France. Together they decided to develop French excellence in the best of racing and technology: the America’s Cup.
With the victory of the American team in 2010, the oldest sporting trophy in the world underwent a revolution, and since then has been fought over by the fastest boats in the world: multihulls ‘flying’ on foils propelled by a rigid wing. The 35th America’s Cup is scheduled for May and June 2017 in Bermuda, and will be won by collaboration between the best sailors, engineers, architects and builders of France.
