AQUADIVER REGATTA

STÜHRLING AQUADIVER REGATTA

It’s a Swiss name, an american company and the watches are made in China…. well not entirely…. the automatic movement is Japanese.

Movement

This is sounding very similar to a previous watch except the movement is this diver is Miyota, caliber 8215.
Miyota is part of the Citizen group of companies.

Apart from being part of the Citizen family it has close similarities to the Seiko NH35. It’s a 21 jewel movement with the Parashock shock system, has hand-winding capability and a power reserve of 40 hours. It does not have hacking.

Miyota caliber 8215 operates at 21600 bph.

Micro-brands like Festina, Vostok, AVI-8 and Stuhrling often use Miyota movement.

Case

Protecting the Miyota movement is a stainless steel 42mm case that is 13mm thick. A Krysterna crystal sits between the case and the stainless uni-directional bezel. It has a magnified window for the date.

Kysterna crystal can also be found on the screw down case back. Krysterna is scratch resistant and it often used for eye wear.

Dial

In the Regatta 792 range of Stuhrling Aquadivers the dial is available in two colours, black or blue. Though the bezel inserts come in four colours – black, blue, orange and red.

A simple date window marks the 3 o’clock position while bold luminescent markers indicate the other hour positions. The ‘Submariner’ style hands are also luminescent and easy to read.

Notable Features

A screw down crown features the company’s ‘S’ logo on the face and has two case guards for protection.

Holding the Regatta to your wrist is a stainless steel triple row link bracelet with size adjust and removable links. The clasp has push button release and a safety catch.

Due to it’s similarities with high end watches it could be easily worn with business and business/casual attire.

At just over 200 dollars with the Japanese Miyota movement, in my opinion, this 200m diver shows reasonable value.

PROS

  • Reliable, durable Miyota 8215 movement

CONS

  • Stainless steel bracelet is average
  • Nato straps are a good replacement option but can be hard to fit between the spring bars and case
  • No hacking
