Sabina with yachting dial and bezel – hard to find but not on everymans list there are these nice Valjoux 7733 powered watches. There are known 4 main executions till today, first one with outlined regatta subdial and the other one with full painted areas on the subdial for 5 and 10 minutes regatta starting time. We have seen maybe a dozen of all together over all executions till now, so they are kind of rare and lovely birds.

Not sure is why and when the Logo was changed. The bezels are the same and the dial layout with the painted hour markers shows the family.

1. The full color segment Sabina/Sabena Yachtings

SABINA Yachting

As far we can find Sabina is a trading brand of the company Paul-Virgile Mathez (est 1919) from Tramelan, Switzerland. In 2004, Mr. Gurdeep Singh Kundan acquired the trade marks Vilor and Magalex from retiring Fred Virgile Mathez, whose forefather Paul Virgile Mather established the eponymous Paul-Virgile Mathez SA company in Tramelan, Switzerland, in 1888.

And with changed name SABENA instead of SABINA.

SABENA Yachting

2. The Sabina 420´s

420 is a boat class of sailing dinghys with a length of 4.20m and an own symbol of the class that you can see on the watch dial.

The regatta register is not filled with color, only an outer coloring to see the countdown to 5 and 10.
The hands are different, arrowed minute hand and larger lume. Same bezel as on type 1.
We have seen that execution as panda and with a full black dial with colored segments and one with inner bezel too.

Sabina Yachting 420 class

Here is the full black dial with full colored regatta segments – but again with the hands of the other full colored segments non 420.

Hope to find out more about the brand and maybe we discover more yachting watches made by Sabina.
