The Leinfelder Private Collection has grown by another model. On May 3, 2009, watch aficionado and sailing fan Prof. Dr. Ulrich L. Rohde presented the winner of every race in the Antigua Sailing Week with a regatta watch designed by Leinfelder as a token of his gratitude. Captain Frank Brown received an exclusive custom watch by Leinfelder Uhren München.
“I am not racing for second place,” Frank Brown explains smiling, as he places the Meridian Antigua around his wrist for the first time. With this one-of-a-kind watch, Prof. Dr. Ulrich L. Rohde honors the captain and his crew for their outstanding performance during the Antigua Sailing Week 2009. Frank Brown managed to win every single race of the regatta with his sailing boat, the Dragon Fly Plus.
The casually elegant men's chronograph with flyback functionality, central chronograph minute and red ten-minute marking to time the pre-start is manufactured from 18ct white gold. The long, curved push-pieces, the hallmark of Leinfelder Uhren München, make for easy handling and also protect the crown from impact. The screw-down crown protects the inside of the case from water up to a pressure of ten bar.
