    I took a quick tour to google and found that Regina and Omega are the same company, Omega having bought out Regina. The web site I went to listed this watch to be made between 1923 and 1927. Here is the link......I didn't go very deep.

    Very old post but worthy of comment.
    Interesting watch. Get a copy of The Complete Price Guide to Watches, Gilbert/Shugart. P. 536 (depending on the age of the book). Most of these say L. Brandt & Freres SA on the movement but I have seen Omega and Regina. Mostly used in Canada and approved for railway use there. They came in different grades:
    23J DDR (highest grade)
    19J DR
    23J CCCR
    19J CCR
    The case is 14K rolled gold (plate, not solid) by the American Watch Case Co. of Toronto.
