Regia Timpieces has added a new design “發” dial in 6 colours to their collection. They are available in both engrave (code R105) and plain bezel (code R106).
The 6 colours are Sunburst, Starburst, Crimson Red, Eclipse Orange, Flare Yellow, and finally a Raw Brass dial (this dial will patina over time).
“發” is [pronouce as Fa or Fatt] or [Phat in Vietnamese].
Usually use during the Chinese New Year or when associated with needed 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. Apparent the favourite number for Asian.
