Regular expression to validate time

Hi,

I wanted to validate time by regular expression in hh:mm:ss format

for example 16:12:18 is valid time

The below reqular expression is not working good

^([0]\d|[1][0-2])\/([0-2]\d|[3][0-1])\/([2][01]|[1][6-9])\d{2}(\s([0]\d|[1][0-2])(\:[0-5]\d){1,2})*\s*([aApP][mM]{0,2})?$

Can you please help me in fixing the regular expression

User has to enter time in hh:mm:ss format only

Many Thanks

^(([0-1]?[0-9])|([2][0-3])):([0-5]?[0-9]):([0-5]?[0-9])$

Don't forget to include the 1:23:45 format (no leading 0).
