Here is where the inheritance begins: Patek Philippe Calatrava —Ref. 4997, 7200 and 6119

When the Calatrava was launched in 1932, it was a rare classic round watch designed for men. With the evolution of the times, nearly 90 years later, Calatrava has developed dozens of styles, and the case diameter has gradually evolved from the initial 30-31 mm to the 39 mm size of Ref. 5227 and 6119. Known as an epoch-making work in 20th century watch design, Calatrava is also loved by female friends, and it is one of Patek Philippe’s most popular women’s watch series.

Calatrava Ref. 4997

Ref. 4997 is one of two new Calatrava styles released by Patek Philippe this year, the other being the 6119 for men. The 18K white gold case diameter of the 4997/200G has been increased from 33 mm to 35 mm in the previous model 4897 (introduced in 2009). mm, the bezel is set with 76 top-quality flawless Wesselton round diamonds of approximately 0.52 carats, which are dazzling and dazzling; reflecting the exquisite concentric ripple pattern, showing the delicate and deep midnight blue lustre The dial is even more gorgeous and classic. Feminine elegance.

Calatrava 4997/200G-001
18K white gold case, 35 mm diameter, bezel set with 76 diamonds of 0.52 carats, midnight blue guilloché dial, hours, minutes, self-winding Caliber 240, 22K gold off-centre mini-rotor, minimum power reserve 48 hours, Gyromax® balance, Spiromax® balance spring, Patek Philippe stamp, sapphire crystal and case back, satin-finished calfskin strap.

In addition to the enlarged diameter of the watch, compared with the previous generation 4897, which was equipped with a 215 hand-winding movement, the inner beauty of the 4997 is also different. The 240 self-winding movement is changed to echo the Seiko aesthetics of many female customers who have a mechanical movement at the same time. And the expectation of the convenience of not having to worry about the winding; in addition, because of the 22K gold miniature automatic rotor, the watch is equally slim and delicate, only 7.4 mm thick. The elegant structure of the 240 movement follows the strict standards of the Patek Philippe seal, and the most exquisite decorative details can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.

Calatrava Ref. 7200

Compared with the modern fashion and grand elegance of the Calatrava 4997, the Calatrava 7200, also equipped with a 240 self-winding movement, which was launched in 2013, is full of timeless classic charm and the most feminine atmosphere. The watch features a 34.6mm 18K 4N rose gold officer-style case with slender side edges and an overall thickness of only 7.37mm. Carefully distinguish the iconic straight lugs with rounded ends and the screw-fastened strap pegs. A classic feature of an officer-style case. The fine grained texture of the milky white dial shows an extraordinary silky effect, with K gold three-dimensional Arabic numerals and 60 minute markers, which perfectly complement the two “Poire Stuart” rose gold hands. It embodies the tradition of Patek Philippe’s two-hand watch focusing on the essence of simplicity and the Bauhaus style where any additions are cumbersome.

Calatrava Ref. 6119

Since its inception in 1932, the Calatrava, inspired by the minimalism of the Bauhaus, has always maintained the principles of proportionality, purity of design and functional practicality, but there are still occasional changes in elegance and refinement, especially the wristwatch number 3919, which came out in 1985. The design of the watch is the most popular. The bezel of this watch is embellished with the “Clous de Paris” (Clous de Paris) pattern (this design actually appeared as early as the 1934 Ref. The rounded case and clear surface immediately became one of Patek Philippe’s style symbols and an indispensable classic style in the classic series. It is still one of the most admired timepieces ever made by Patek Philippe.

Calatrava 6119R-001
18K rose gold case, diameter 39 mm, bezel engraved with Clous de Paris, silver-finish brass finish, “obus” faceted hour markers, royal hour and minute hands, small seconds, 30-255 PS hands Winding movement, power reserve at least 65 hours, Patek Philippe stamp, sapphire glass and case back, water-resistant to 30 meters, alligator leather strap.

Only more than ten years after its launch, Calatrava 3919 has become as independent as a jade tree facing the wind. It has become one of the characteristics of the watch industry to spread the style of Patek Philippe timepieces. In 2006, Patek Philippe launched a new slightly larger style Ref. 5119, the diameter of which was increased from 33.5 mm to 36 mm. More than a decade has passed, and it has long been a unique “Paris stud” watch under the Calatrava series. This year, in order to meet the needs of the times for large watch diameters, it finally launched the long-awaited new facelift Ref.6119 in the watch industry. Not only the diameter of the watch has been increased to 39 mm, the lugs have been changed from straight to curved, and the movement has also been changed from a 21.9 mm 215 PS hand-wound movement to a new-generation 30-255 PS hand-wound movement with a diameter of 31 mm, and the thickness is only 2.55 mm; the double barrel design provides at least 65 hours of power, which is more in line with the convenience of modern life.

Calatrava 6119 is first released in 6119G-001 white gold and 6119R-001 rose gold, with an anthracite dial and white gold applied hour markers and hands, respectively, and a silver fine-grained surface and rose gold applied hour markers and hands; bezel Both are decorated with a “Paris stud pattern” made of the traditional diamond-style staggered pattern technique. The width is slightly wider than that of the previous generation 5119. It still adheres to the characteristics of the thin and light series, and the overall watch thickness is only 8.08 mm. The newly launched 30-255 PS hand-wound movement naturally attracts the attention of the watch industry. In addition to the increase in power reserve and the stop-second function, the elegantly shaped six splints have a beautiful composition like a work of art, combining both classical and modern style. Worth tasting again and again.

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Flawless Imperial Dragon

The ability to combine high-end watchmaking with other types of craftsmanship, be it inlay, engraving, hand-painting, music box making or enamel art, is the hallmark of the famous American brand luxury Jacob & Co. Continuing this tradition, the company has added an incredible novelty to its watch collection – the Astronomia Flawless Imperial Dragon model.

In this high-end watch, the unusual Astronomia mechanism is entwined with a flexible dragon pattern hand-coloured and hand-engraved in 18-karat rose gold. A miniature sculpture of a dragon consists of four parts (head, body, tail, and water surrounding the dragon), which must be connected by invisible seams. In view of the fact that the shape of the beast is made of gold, it is very heavy, and the screws connecting the various parts of the dragon are also very small, and the task is arduous. Not to mention that watchmakers need to be very careful not to damage the doll during assembly and bring it safely to the final stage, where the designers hand perfect the smallest details: scales, teeth, tongue and eyes.

Since the introduction of the Astronomia series in 2014, a mandatory attribute of this line of models has included a massive sapphire glass case. Thanks to the transparency of the case, the biaxial tourbillon mechanism can be seen from different sides in its full glory. The complex concept of the monolithic case design creates the illusion that the complications are floating in the air under the sapphire dome.

Replacing the single metal part used in previous models of the series with sapphire glass elements helps to achieve this effect. In particular, we’re talking about case rings and lugs. All in all, the production of the “Mythical” case (50 x 25.45 mm) took over 1000 hours!

Inside this proud representative of the top Jacob & Co. timepieces, there is a mechanism with a hand-wound movement and a 60-hour power reserve that, in addition to the display of the hours and minutes, also supports the operation of the biaxial tourbillon . The rotational speed of the latter is 60 seconds on one axis and 2.5 minutes on the second axis. In this model, the famous manufacturer has retained the concept of a four-axis turntable module, with all functional and purely decorative elements fixed at its ends. In addition to the sub-dial and tourbillon cage, a 1-carat Jacob Cut® diamond and a lacquered magnesium alloy ball symbolizing the earth can be seen below the dragon’s body. Both elements rotate about their axes at two revolutions per minute.

Released in a single copy, the one-of-a-kind chronograph Astronomia perfectly embodies Jacob & Co.’s motto – “Inspired by the Impossible”.

Jacob & Co. is one of the few reliable fake men watches brands that regularly amazes customers with their incredibly beautiful looks.

Breguet Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 in blue

The latest Tradition watch in modern blue.

Vintage style fake watches review are part of the industry and have been highly sought after for about a decade. But when it comes to evoking memories of the past, few are better and more historic than the Breguet heritage. A tribute to Souscription watches of the late 18th century, the heart of the Tradition is the exposed structure of its movement. Several mechanical changes were released, the latest model being the 2020 Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597, and today the brand is releasing it in a new colour combination, with a white gold case and a surprisingly bold and modern (at least by the brand’s standards) blue color dial.

While Breguet often draws inspiration from vintage pocket watches to create recognizable displays of its contemporary timepieces, the Tradition collection goes deeper, or at least goes in a different direction. The Tradition watch collection was born in 2005 as a tribute to AL Breguet’s souscription pocket watches. After the French Revolution, he needed to create a new business model that would make watches easier to use while also strengthening the company’s cash flow (not very sexy, but that’s the reality behind the concept). He came up with the concept of subscription watches in 1796, an early version of mass production maintained through crowdfunding. The idea is to get a potential customer to make an initial down payment or subscription, to finance the construction of a relatively simple pocket watch with a large diameter, one hand, a simple movement and a very modest price. This, in turn, would ensure that Breguet could buy parts and build a production line to produce watches in identical batches.

The beauty of the subscription watch is its simple movement construction, which fake Breguet included in his first YTO watch in 1799. The movement is built around a central mainspring with symmetrically constructed finger bridges – balanced to echo the central wheel of the gear train. When the brand launched the Tradition collection in 2005, the idea was to show it below the dial of Breguet’s souscription watches Some original components of the movement. However, the bridges, gears, escapement and barrel are not displayed on the caseback, but are placed on top of the baseplate for viewing from the dial.

Following several different watches, such as manual winding; GMT; automatic retrograde seconds; chronograph; Quantième…a fancy French word for a date complication. But Breguet is Breguet, and it is more than a simple date window. Based on the Automatique Seconde Retrograde 7097, it shares the same basic movement with the self-winding mechanism, but without the retrograde seconds, which has been replaced by a new date function on a dome from 4 o’clock to 7 o’clock. New for this year is the Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 with the addition of a blue version, echoing the Seconde Rétrograde 7097 Blue ‘Boutique Edition’ we are showing here.

The basics remain the same. 40mm high and 12.10mm 18k white gold case in typical Breguet style with thin polished bezel, finely grooved baseband and individually welded lugs with screw rods at the ends to secure the strap. The watch has sapphire crystals on both ends and is water resistant to 30 meters (who wants to see this watch underwater anyway…) For this occasion, the watch is worn on a dark blue alligator leather strap with a clasp Matching pin buckle closure. case.

The change this year is color. The movement retains its anthracite-coated hammer plates and bridges, with contrasting polished bevels, and all wheels and moving elements are rhodium-plated for contrast. The eccentric guilloche dial is made of solid gold and hand-finished on an engine-turned machine, here rendered in blue with the Roman numerals and logo in silver transfer. The open Breguet hands are also silver. The beautiful date track is also blue, and the numbers alternate between silver powder transfers and gold cabochons.

Although simple at first – the date mechanism is often considered the simplest complication – the Breguet Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 features some mechanical improvements. Due to the architectural concept of this movement and its many parts, a retrograde date may be the best choice. The complications are unobtrusive and respect the symmetry of the movement. The date can be corrected quickly thanks to the screw pusher at 10 o’clock. In addition, the shape of the central date hand made of blued steel is also unique. In order to pass the balance and center wheel, it had to be shaped by hand before being heat-blued.

The back shows the automatic in-house calibre 505Q, with its real gold rotor echoing the winding quality found on earlier Perpetuelle pocket watches, however, it now rotates in a classic 360-degree rotation. The movement is modern, and despite its modern appearance, it has a reverse in-line lever escapement with silicon horns, and a Breguet hairspring, also made of silicon – both of which are antimagnetic. Operates at 3Hz with a power reserve of up to 50 hours.

Ulysse Nardin

Ocean Race Diver

Ulysse Nardin fake is accelerating the use of innovative alternative materials and announces the first DIVER model composed primarily of recycled fishing nets

Ulysse Nardin and The Ocean Race have witnessed their shared commitment, fulfilled with THE OCEAN RACE DIVER, which will become the official timekeeper for the high seas sailing race scheduled to begin on 15 January 2023 from Alicante, Spain. Eco-friendly watchmaking creations, two partners pledge to protect the oceans and begin the countdown to positive results by 2030.

Ocean Race Diver: From the ocean, for the ocean
The beginning of a new era for Ulysse Nardin. Since 1846, the Swiss watchmaker has been making marine chronometers of unrivaled reliability for explorers. Today’s navigators inevitably face plastic pollution, with 5 trillion pieces floating at sea. Fishing nets (mainly made of polyamide) are one of the main sources of this marine plastic pollution: as much as 640,000 metric tons are lost or discarded each year (UN), adding to the 9 million metric tons of plastic released into the sea (Science).

“How can we turn some of these plastics into luxury goods? With the help of start-ups such as FIL&FAB, we have successfully manufactured and sold watches made from recycled fishing nets,” said Ulysse Nardin CEO Patrick Pruniaux.

Peter Thomson, UN special envoy for the oceans, praised the effort during a session at the IUCN World Congress in Marseille in September 2021: “Drift nets are a huge part of the plastic pollution problem. They are harmful to marine life such as corals and sea turtles. Extremely destructive. The fact that you are upgrading them is a positive because there are so many of them in the ocean.”

“The way we make people aware of the problem is by upcycling. Finding suppliers is a key factor in this process,” Patrick Pruniaux confirms. review replica watches

In September 2020, Ulysse Nardin marks its first milestone in its commitment to a circular economy that supports the oceans, with the launch of the R-STRAP wristband, made entirely from recycled fishing nets that can be used with MARINE, DIVER and FREAK X watch. Then in November 2020, the brand launched the DIVER NET, an experimental concept watch in which every element has been designed with durability in mind and is as environmentally friendly as possible. A completely innovative and upgraded watch. Two significant positive developments for the brand and the watchmaking industry.

From design projects to commercialized objects

Always keep your promises…
The brand had promised to move quickly from concept to marketing. In June 2022, a diver’s watch made from recycled fishing nets will be the first sustainable luxury watch to hit the market in a limited edition of 200 pieces. It confirms the global upcycling trend that the luxury industry has already adopted by the high fashion industry. The goal is to raise awareness through “trade-ins” and recycled materials, especially plastics. With this web regeneration movement, Ulysse Nardin is finally making the transition to a circular economy. Thanks to the work of the French start-up FIL&FAB, the brand has thus focused on “less noble” materials enhanced by the method of the “100% Manufacture” watchmaker,

Features of the watch
The designers of Ulysse Nardin have meticulously decorated this watch, which is water-resistant to 300 meters and embellished with bright green, a reflection of nature. These are everywhere: from the stitching on the strap to the hour markers and bezel, including the “Double X” logo on the dial, the power reserve indicator at noon, the small seconds at 6 o’clock, the etched Ulysse Nardin logo on the crown, Crown protector and separate bridge. The combination of white, grey and black completes the watch’s palette, echoing the rhythm of the Manufacture’s signature movement, UN-118, which uses silicon technology.

95% of the components of this movement are sourced within a 30km radius of the watchmaking factory, half of which come from recycled sources (especially recycled steel and brass: 100% of Ulysse Nardin’s movements use recycled brass). The OCEAN RACE DIVER embodies innovation and tradition as its movement retains its historic know-how. The movement of a watch of this quality is inherently a sustainable product because it relies on the power of the wrist to work.

The dial is softer than the DIVER NET concept, even if it still has obvious parenthood: the white U and N initials in the oversized capitals have disappeared to make way for a neutral textured anthracite (ruthenium) finish. The iconic double X remains In its place, it is printed on the dial in a semi-matte, semi-satin finish. The sapphire crystal on the caseback features the white logo of brand partner The Ocean Race.

Border trim in Carbonium® design
The unidirectional bezel is completely decorated with Carbonium® (Lavoisier composite). Carbonium® is made from the same fibers used in the fuselage and wings of the latest generation of aircraft. Carbonium® is manufactured with a 40% lower environmental impact than other carbon composite materials because it utilizes offcuts from aircraft parts. Made using a complex process at high temperature and pressure, Carbonium® is a high-performance material that reveals the inherent beauty of organic patterns formed from carbon fibers as small as 7 µm in diameter. The use of this recycled material once again clearly underlines the brand’s bold and innovative spirit. In fact, Ulysse Nardin 2019 is the first watchmaking brand to use this new material in a fake watches for sale.

The case is designed with two main materials: Nylo® + Carbonium® (60% + 40%) and at least 80-85% recycled steel
The side case and case back of the 44mm THE OCEAN RACE DIVER are the result of an interesting combination of materials: 40% Carbonium® (Lavoisier composite) and 60% polyamide, Nylo® (FIL&FAB), recycled from fishing nets. Ulysse Nardin trusts the young Breton designers who created the first fishing net recycling business in France. FIL&FAB, a start-up in the field of industrial design and transformation, recycles discarded fishing nets in French fishing ports and recycles them in the form of polyamide pellets called Nylo®.

Building on this virtuous cycle of 360° circular escalation, Ulysse Nardin’s engineering office team took their eco-responsible approach a step further and opted for a recycled steel for some of the case components, at least for the case back. 80% is recycled. The brand’s supplier, Voestalpine Boehler’s renowned Austrian steel mill, has embarked on a process of comprehensive sustainable transformation and is actively committed to supplying watchmaking customers with very high-quality steel, guaranteed recycling, and soon guaranteed upcycling. As a result, 80% to 85% of the steel that is partially trimmed in THE OCEAN RACE DIVER is recycled from steel recycling channels in the automotive industry.

Franck Muller Vanguard Casablanca Reinvents Timeless Classics

A younger and more economical Casablanca for young watch lovers.

If the name “Casablanca” conjures up images of Humphrey Bogart saying goodbye to Ingrid Bergman’s heartbreaking “We’ll Always Have Paris” in the iconic 1942 film, we don’t feel surprise. Or, if you’re a wealthy traveler familiar with exotics, the charming Moroccan port city is known for its diverse architectural and gastronomic treasures.

However, if you’re a watch lover, the name “Casablanca” will inadvertently conjure up Franck Muller’s eponymous line of exquisite tonneau-shaped dress watches. Legend has it that the brand’s eponymous founder himself was inspired by the movie “Casablanca” when he created the watch collection.

Defined by sensuous lines that amplify the curves and three-dimensionality of a traditional tonneau-shaped case – Franck Muller has since registered a trademark for “Cintree Curvex” (French for “arched curve”) – Casablanca watches also feature capriciousness. The dial is dominated by large Art Deco Arabic numerals fanning out from the center. Indeed, this look and style will become synonymous with Franck Muller. More pertinently, the Casablanca collection is both an homage to the old school and a uniquely modern dress watch that was so popular that it rang at multiple cash registers in its heyday.

While the Casablanca line has never been discontinued, it has taken a back seat in recent years, overshadowed by the brand’s other product lines. Especially the Vanguard series, launched in 2015, dominates the new releases. This year, however, Franck Muller decided to cross-fuse the two collections with the launch of Vanguard Casablanca. For on-screen comparisons—after all, the collection has “Casablanca” in its name—these watches are like a Baz Luhrmann-esque remake of the original.

Watch lovers who know the Vanguard collection will be familiar with the watch’s hefty case (sort of like a gym bro version of the Cintree Curvex), colorful and eye-catching dials, and thick, sturdy straps that convey a sporty and dynamic spirit. Just as the Vanguard-treated Franck Muller’s iconic Crazy Hours and Revolution 3 Tourbillon finally look like they’re party-ready, Vanguard Casablanca also resurfaces as a bundled collection that looks years shorter than the original.

Available in 41mm and 43mm, the Vanguard Casablanca makes its presence felt. The barrel-shaped profile has been significantly enhanced, replacing the original Casablanca Art Deco dial with the classic spear hands, and bold stretched printed hour markers with a unique font (also Art Deco) skeletonized hands by Vanguard Collection. Minute track and compass points on the inner bezel.

To say the least, the series’ hyperbole is straight-forward. The watches are available in automatic three-hand and steel chronograph versions, with a black dial with Super-LumiNova markers, a brown dial with chocolate-colored numerals, and a salmon-colored dial with Super-LumiNova markers. Each version is imbued with its own glamour while collectively expressing the collection’s sporty luxury DNA. In addition, there is a boutique version of the stainless steel three-hand and chronograph models with black dials and blue numerals, which in our opinion is the coolest look in the collection.

The sporty style of the Vanguard Casablanca is very different from the exuberant and refined elegance of the original Casablanca. Franck Muller called it the collection’s “21st century” style, and he didn’t stray too far. In addition, as one of the brand ambassadors, Vanguard Casablanca aims to attract the attention of young watch lovers.

The watch’s muscular silhouette, vibrant colours and most importantly, make them entry-level for Franck Muller. Granted, that’s still a pretty high bar for young executives. But as the brand’s entry-level range, Vanguard Casablanca offers a tantalizing and intriguing proposition. fake luxury watches

MB&F LMX Steel & Brass, Episode 3 of the LMX Series

When you can’t get enough of the good stuff!

Ten years — eleven years to be exact — have passed since MB&F’s Legacy Machine No. 1 launched. Introduced in 2011, the LM1 was a groundbreaking timepiece that countered MB&F’s signature galactic style, with classic features and a flying balance wheel on the dial. The LM1’s two white lacquered dials represent the two time zones, marking the first milestone in the legacy of the Legacy Machine collection. To celebrate its first decade in 2021, MB&F revisits the LM1 concept with a new model. Designated as LMX, many elements from sport to the cutting edge surface for an even more dynamic spectacle. The latest LMX Steel & Brass, with its gorgeous gold-brushed brass dial and gleaming stainless steel case, writes the third episode of the series.

Brass Motherboard
The lovely champagne matte color of the background set is made of untreated brass and corresponds to the reverse side of the main board. Like other LM models, the exposed moving parts of the watch face are not mounted on the dial, but on a brass plate that serves as the dial. Unlike earlier versions of the LMX with green CVD and black NAC treated plates, the natural golden luster of the brushed brass brings a pleasant warmth to the composition, contrasting with the brightly polished stainless steel case.

Two-way time shuttle
The guiding light behind the Legacy Machine is to explore what kind of watch Max Büsser would have dreamed of if he had been born in 1867. Filled with an aesthetic nod to traditional 19th-century watchmaking norms, the Legacy Machine incorporates the dynamic dynamism of MB&F. An elevated 14mm balance wheel hangs from the center of the dial (you can read all about the evolution of the LM in this article).

Against a lovely frosted background, two classic white lacquered subdials with a gold frame, Roman numerals and blue hands appear on the base. Its 50° inclination allows the owner to see at a glance two different time zones, which in turn can be adjusted via corresponding crowns on the steel case at 10 and 2 o’clock.

Following the design upgrade of the LMX, the lines of the 44mm stainless steel case are more streamlined and refined, and the hollow area extends along the strap. The 21.4mm height, including the super-dome sapphire crystal that contains the elements, ensures viewing pleasure from every angle.

exposed elements
Unlike the more enclosed appearance of the original LM1, the LMX reveals many functional elements, but they are arranged symmetrically. Proudly, the massive 13.4 mm floating balance wheel beats at 18,000 beats per hour, almost rubbing the high-dome sapphire crystal. Equipped with inertia blocks for increased accuracy, the balance is held in place by beautiful arched V-cleats.

At noon, located under the bridge is the hemispherical power reserve indicator, an evolution of the vertical power reserve indicator on the LM1. The numbers 1-7 on the arched scale indicate how much power is left in the powerful 7-day (168-hour) tank, and you can also see the working day displayed on the other side of the hemisphere. Thanks to the rotation of the entire display, you can adjust the direction via the crown to view the power reserve or the work day. Continuing on the vertical axis, the components of the gear train are exposed on the tomahawk-shaped escapement bridge and the running seconds hand at 6 o’clock. review replica watches

Echoing the crowns at the 10 and 2 o’clock positions of the case, the dial’s two horizontally-aligned wheels sit above two titled sub-dials, which rotate when the time on either dial is adjusted.

The sapphire crystal caseback showcases MB&F’s hand-wound 367 partial calibre, with three concentrically arranged mainspring barrels that provide a powerful 7-day power reserve. This Steel & Brass version showcases untreated brass plates and bridges on the back, decorated with Côtes de Genève and other refined 19th-century handmade finishes.

Technical Specifications – MB&F LMX Steel and Brass
Case: Diameter 4mm x H21.4mm – 316L stainless steel, polished – Two crowns at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock – High domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the dial, sapphire crystal case back

CORUM Golden Bridge – Avant-Garde Watchmaking

The story of the Corum Watch Golden Bridge is extraordinary. One day, Vincent Calabrese, a young watchmaker from the idyllic town of Lacau-de-Fonds, knocked on the door of the Corum watch to introduce his latest invention: a strange-looking Rectangular movement. He probably did not know that from now on, this would become the movement of the flagship complication watch of Corum, and it has remained the benchmark to this day!

That was in the late 1970s – and CORUM founder René Bannwart was so excited that he immediately patented this unique movement. By the way, Vincent Calabrese still works for CORUM to this day and supports the team in developing the latest Golden Bridge creations.

The CORUM Golden Bridge replica is considered an avant-garde watch because of its unique movement placed in the center of the transparent sapphire crystal case. The watch’s name is affectionately dedicated to San Francisco’s famous Golden Gate Bridge – and you can see why.

Since the Golden Bridge watch was first introduced in 1980, its collection has grown steadily. Here are some important milestones: In 2009, Corum presented its new exclusive movement (CO 007), which was designed, developed and assembled in-house! In 2011, the CORUM Bridges collection launched its first linear-winding automatic movement: the Golden Bridge Automatic. With it on, you can see the little “sled” running up and down!

In 2016, CORUM launched the first Golden Bridge with a round case designed by Dino Modolo, which you can see in the center of our picture! The inside of the case shows a cutaway view of the Golden Gate Bridge building. We also got our hands on this year’s novelty “Golden Bridge Rectangle” which will be available during Baselworld at the end of March! A clever combination of all the golden bridge elements in a slightly smaller case that is also suitable for smaller wrists.

On the left side of the picture, you can see the beautiful 18k gold standard gold bridge hand-wound, showing three different styles in the history of the golden bridge. It’s really not easy to pick a favorite. wholesale replica watches

Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Rose Gold: Sheer Sophistication

As for the impressive world of watchmaking, few brands are more effective than Jacob & Co, which was founded in New York in 1986 as a small jewelry stand. By 2002, the brand Jacob & Co. was really just getting into the real watch business.

After being impressed with the Astronomia Solar and Epic SF24 watches, Jacob & Co. went on to present one of the company’s most complicated and bizarre watches: the Twin Turbo Furious. The name reveals a strange “twin” mechanism, moving at breakneck speed, encapsulated in a limited situation. Specifically, the Twin Turbo Furious features a pair of 3-axis tourbillon cages, a decimal repeater mechanism (which we’ll explain later), a monopusher chronograph, and a unique, never-before-seen Pit Board mechanism.

Over the years, many versions of the Twin Turbo Furious watch have been released in different striking colors and materials. After all, if you have to say a pure and classic Twin Turbo Furious, you have to mention the version with a rose gold case interwoven with carbon fiber, which is limited to 18 pieces in the world: Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious rose gold.

The Twin Turbo Furious is the follow-up to the Twin Turbo Twin Triple Axis Tourbillon Minute Repeater. As such, it will inherit important features from its predecessor. The Twin Turbo Furious case is one of the most complex in the industry, with straight lines and no shortage of curves. Especially the sapphire mirror looks like a trapezoid, but is curved and expanded from 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock.

The Twin Turbo Furious is an unforgettable watch that cannot be hidden behind a sleeve due to its sheer size. The watch is 57mm long, with a distance of 52mm between the two lugs and a thickness of 17mm. In your hand, the Twin Turbo Furious will certainly overshadow any other accessory, that’s for sure.

The strangest feature of the Jacob & Co. case structure. Twin Turbo Furious needs to call the name of the crown and accompanying crank right away. The crank can be removed from the case and its function makes winding the movement easier. Next to it is the trigger for the repeater function. The Jacobs Company calls it a decimal minute repeater to distinguish it from the traditional minute repeater. exact replica watches

When activated, the Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Rose Gold will sound to indicate the current time, including the alarm number, tens of minutes, and finally odd seconds. For example, at 12:34, the clock strikes the first 12, the next 3 hours, and the last 4 hours. This allows instant time display without having to look at the Jacob & Co watch face. Twin Turbo Furious Rose Gold is in the dark, although this feature isn’t really useful either, as there are a lot of smart timer tools out there these days.

At first glance, the dial beneath the Jacob & Co. sapphire crystal can be confusing. Twin Turbo Furious Rose Gold is a symphony of numbers, colors and hands. The main dial, located above, is a slightly translucent black smoked sapphire with the Jacob & Co logo. On the edge of the dial is a very fine white Super-LumiNova luminous chronograph 60-second counter. Additionally, users will notice a count ring displayed as the name of the Pit Board.

Simply put, the Pit Board mechanism refers to the time difference between two chronographs. Combined with the chrono function of the red central seconds hand and the chronograph minute ring at 3 o’clock, the user can see how many seconds are ahead or behind the reference time. The user will use the crown itself to set the comparison time up to 5 minutes 59 seconds, indicated by a window at 6 o’clock (still on the main dial). discount replica watches

For the rest of the dial, Jacob & Co. gives way to the tourbillon, a mechanism revered in watchmaking. But in the machine Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious rose gold, the complexity is doubled and tripled. The manufacturer arranges up to two tourbillon cages on the lower half of the watch. Each tourbillon cage rotates very fast, which explains why this watch is called Twin Turbo Furious.

In the first axis, the tourbillon cage rotates in 24 seconds, in the second, the tourbillon rotates in 8 seconds, and the third completes in 30 hours. At the bottom is a small but very useful mechanical watch power reserve that indicates whether it’s time to charge the internal movement.

Beneath the impressive main performance above is a beating heart called the Jacob & Co JCFM05. Flip the bottom of the Twin Turbo Furious watch upwards and the JCFM05 movement will reveal a beautifully handled and impressively small angle. The main frame plates and bridges are hand polished. Many parts are also evenly covered with black. The movement has a total of 75 jewels.

Without a doubt, the Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious Rose Gold is one of those watches that appeals and stands out. Bold style and hidden craftsmanship are a perfect match for the radical form of this intricate machine. But often things are too different, and it is difficult for “monsters” to conquer 100% of the crowd. The combination of the three elements of the decimal minute repeater, the triple-axis double tourbillon cage, the monopusher chronograph and the Pit plate ensures that the Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Furious is the first and only timepiece.

He was known for his diamond-encrusted men’s watches, before moving on to more technical pieces. The first milestone was the Quenttin in 2006, which featured a vertical movement with a transverse tourbillon and a power reserve of 31 days in 7 barrels. The astronomers introduced below have caused a stir in the watch world. Astronmis paints a vision of the celestial world, with planetary indicators in constant motion under the control of a three-axis tourbillon.

Richard Mille
Richard Mille founded his own watch brand under his own name in 1999 after working for several French watch companies for many years. The first Richard Mille fake watch was the RM 001 Tourbillon, limited to 17 pieces. Each Richard Mille model has a reference number, but they are not all published in chronological order, as some models took longer to develop than others.

Rolex
Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Al​​​lfred Davis – Rolex is a brand that needs no introduction.

Panerai
Panerai was founded in Florence, Italy in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai. Today, Panerai remains one of the unique and well-known brands loved by many. Their most famous models are Radiomir and Luminor. Radiomir was designed in 1938 as a dive watch for the Italian Navy and has been part of its standard equipment for many years. In 1949, Panerai took action to reformulate its luminescent dial paint and registered its new luminescent chemical as Luminor. In 1993, they launched the first three models available to the public. Actor Sylvester Stallone discovered the brand while filming Daylight in Rome, and he bought the Luminor Marina and wore it in front of the camera, resulting in an unexpected marketing boost. The rest, as they say, is history!

Patek Philippe
Patek Philippe is the last independent family-owned Geneva watch manufacturer in existence today and is considered by many watch enthusiasts to be one of the most prestigious watch brands.
