Regia Timepieces is based in Singapore. The brand creates vintage styled watches with a spark of modern design and technological advancement. These high quality and reliable watches come with affordable prices. REGIA means “Royal” in Spanish. First watch collection from the brand is ARMARE REGATTA.

Armare Regatta watch takes inspiration from the legendary ref. 3646 (Panerai Radiomir) watch from the 1940 welded wire lug prototypes. The faults of the early prototype 3646 case were mainly due to the wire lugs which proved to be too fragile, also the water resistance of the early screw-in crown designs was not fully suited for military diving usage. Armare Regatta is manufactured with a diameter of 44mm and a thickness of 13mm, to help cater to both ladies and gentlemen. It features a large dial and a fixed dodecagon bezel.

The first editions of “Armare Regatta” introduced with 3 modern unique dial coloration in 2 dial designs each color only holding a 100 pieces each (50 pieces for each of the green).

 

The second editions “發” dial are available in 6 colors. Each colour is limited to 100 pieces.

Usually use during the Chinese New Year or when associated with good luck [發財] to become rich and to make money. Thus, Gong Xi Fa Cai [恭喜發財] is use in wishes, it means “Wishing you a prosperous year” or “Wish you make a lot of fortune”. “發” is placed on the 8 position as “發” is also sounds like “8” in Cantonese.

Both editions feature a Torpedo Submarine symbol on the dial. This symbol was added as the vintage “3646” was originally made for the military diving team.
