Product Description

Whether you’re attending the pre-race social event of the year, sailing your yacht in competition, going to the office or doing your routine errands, The Regatta from Stührling Original makes a statement of smart elegance and simple grace wherever you are. With its large 42½ millimeter case made from solid 316L surgical grade stainless steel and solid link bracelet, The Regatta provides a masculine yet classy look that suits the lifestyle of just about any man. Contributing to the elegant appeal is the uni-directional ratcheting bezel; at 5.5mm, the bezel is uncommonly narrower than found on most timepieces from the diver category. The effect of the slim bezel creates an illusion that the watch is even larger than it already is. The face of the watch looks larger because it is larger than a dial normally would be in a 42, even a 43mm case. The design on the bezel brilliantly complements the overall look and the name of the series as it sports a series of fanned arcs creating a look of waves or water. That wave design has been milled into the bezel and provides a fitting backdrop to the raised polished chapters on the ring. The traditional triangular marker for the zero position features a luminous dot for a little extra readability in the dark. The dial of The Regatta features a “simple dimple” design and Luminova™ filled trapezoidal markers all the way around plus the Arabic numeral for the twelve o’clock position. The skeletonized luminous sport style hands give further support to the Regatta theme and the cyclops for the date magnification sits atop the Krysterna™ crystal at the six o’clock position. The straightforward three-hand movement with its quick-set date is powered by the 21-jewel mechanical automatic movement (caliber ST-91006) has 38 hours of autonomy and beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The screwed in exhibition case-back reveals the brilliantly decorated movement with its Cotes de Genève treatment on the back plates and the Damier finished rotor with the Stührling signature logo. The screw-down knurled edge crown protected with guard rails on the case allows for water resistance to 330 feet. The triple row link bracelet with the outside rows of links sporting a brushed satin finish contrasting beautifully with the larger center row being treated with a high polish makes a seamless complement for the case which has a satin finish on top while presenting polished sides! The bracelet is completed expertly with a stainless steel deployant clasp featuring a safety lock emblazoned with the Stührling signed logo.

    Amazon had a great limited time promotion on this Black Ion-Plated Stuhrling Water Sports Regatta Automatic Dive Watch so I took them up on the deal. I had been looking for another everyday watch and thought the black on black design would fit my needs. Once I received this watch I took it to a local jeweler to have them properly size it. Then I wore it every day for a week to check for form, fit and function. Here is what I noted during that initial week:

    The look and feel of the watch is very nice and is well balanced. The stainless steel black bezel, black divoted face and black case are all very attractive and the two tone stainless steel black bracelet (polished inner links with mat outer links) compliments the watch very nicely.

    The static safety clasp (no moving parts as apposed to Amazon's description & picture of a two button release mechanism) appears to hold well for now and has "Stuhrling Original" etched onto it for a nice subtle touch.

    There does not seem to be enough adjustment in the links to support all wrist sizes. The jeweler removed all the adjustable links, then adjusted the linkage on to the clasp to its minimum setting yet I could still lose one more link to fit my standard wrist size. But this is a minor point.

    The skeletonized hands with luminescent tips are very bright after initial light exposure and diminish over a sufficient amount of time. The hours are marked with luminescent dashes except at the twelve o-clock position where the Arabic numeral "12" is found.

    Stuhrling's proprietary crystal "Krysterna" is clear and is purported to be better than sapphire in its shatter and scratch resistance.

    I could NOT be happier with this watch! It looks great and has a really nice weight to it. When I brought it to the little jewelry kiosk in the mall to get the band sized, the guy looks at it and goes, "Oooh, a Stuhrling! I don't see too many of these... Nice watch, you will be very happy with it". Its got a really interesting viewable movement through the back. I love this watch....

    I was looking for a watch I could swim with but that also looked good enough to wear to work/dinners/dates etc. I found just what I was looking for in this watch. It comes in a very impressive package, and just opening the box and seeing it was exciting, it looks much nicer up close than it does in the picture. I have not taken it off since I got it, I've showered with it, I went into the pool with it, worked out with it, and so far it still looks just as new.

    It's a great starter for people new to the timepiece scene, but in my case it's a keeper. I couldn't be happier with my purchase, worth every penny.

    I bought this watch January 2010 for $135. This is a heftier watch than what I would usually wear, and I liked that right off the bat. Photo represents the watch well. I was disappointed that the watch did not keep very accurate time. Off by as much as several minutes a day. A little aggravating, but a worthwhile trade-off with not having to worry about a battery. (As noted by some others, mechanical watches tend to be a little off. However, this watch has a greater margin of error than my manual wind 1965 Timex.) My real disappointment came after owning the watch 16 months. That is when the second hand fell off and was loose inside the watch. It was still under warranty, but the warranty is: pay to ship the watch to the factory with a check for $20. They did repair it within 4 weeks and ship it back very well packed.

    Totally the best watch I have owned. Beats any battery watch hands down even though you will need to reset time when watch is left to sit for more than overnight.
    This watch has not lost time as except for when I did not use it for a couple days.

    Pro's:
    1. no battery
    2. hands glow in the dark
    3. great feel very comfortable
    4. keeps time quite well
    5. Second hand stops when setting time allowing for very accurate time.
    6. Built very solid (I work in building services and put a lot of pressure on the band with no problems)

    Con's:
    1. Needs to have time reset when not used for more than a day
    2. If you have large hands it may be difficult to get on your wrist (watch needs to fit wrist tighter than a regular watch for self winding to work properly)
    3. if you have difficulty reading without glasses then you will have trouble reading the date (if you can't remember the date then it doesn't really matter)

    I am days away from my 34th Birthday and decided it was time to get my first wristwatch. In a world where people get their time from iPhones, iPads, PDAs, iPods, cell phones, and various other electronica, I felt the need to buck the system and get back to basics. I just happened to see this watch in the Gold Box deals area, and at just $99 it seemed like an offer I couldn't refuse. It has all the aesthetics I like; it's black, it's metal, it's unassuming, and it lacks superfluous flair or attempts at being a centerpiece on your body. It doesn't need a battery, which is perfect for a lazy guy like me, and when I had the wristlet adjusted the jeweler was floored at the quality of the watch. As a matter of fact, when I told him it was my first watch he replied "It will also be your last". Sounds ominous, but I get he was saying; this is an item built to last and I am proud to be part of the Stuhrling family.
