This is of course because of the detailed image of a skull that is placed in the center of the dial. The skull is somewhat of a Regiatradition, because the brand also offers watches with a skull hand painted on the dial by renowned Australian artist Timothy John. The skull on this watch has a unique feature since its eye cavities are filled with luminova, giving an amazing effect in low light conditions. But despite this fun factor, the watch is not a gimmick. The brass case is very well constructed, with details that would not make it look out of place on the wrist of one of those privateers from centuries ago.

Modern day privateers will probably be using the watch in a more urban setting, but even their brass case and buckle will develop a wonderful patina over time. The caseback shows the bowels of the beast, which is in this case an automatic movement from Seiko. With a diameter of 44m the Regia Skull Dial has quite some wrist presence, but this also allows for the skull to show plenty of detail. With a price tag of US$390,- you don’t have to take up privateering to afford one, although being limited to only 100 pieces you might do to be able to pick one up!
