The Tourbillon Two Time Watch, it combines Italian style and refined aesthetics, showing the eye-catching timepiece charm. (Watch model: PAM01060)

Compared with the Luminor Tourbillon GMT Luminor Series Tourbillon Two Time Watches in the direct metal laser sintered titanium or ceramic case style launched in previous years, this watch has a more unique temperament. It is Panerai. The first Luminor Tourbillon watch with a Goldtech™ red gold case is very significant.

The function of this watch is more complicated, and it is easy to make people feel cluttered if the design is not good. Removing the bezel can effectively enlarge the dial space on the basis of the same size, making it visually clearer and more consistent.

The RM 47 Tourbillon watch, armouring the watch

Art and spirituality merge into one. As an aesthetic masterpiece that pays tribute to Japanese culture, the RM 47 Tourbillon watch is amazingly presented after nearly four years of careful consideration and careful design. This ingenious, artistic watch is equipped with a movement that is compact and compact and designed to make room for samurai armor.

• Originating from the spirit and values ​​of Bushido
• 16 hours of craftsmanship and 9 hours of careful drawing to achieve 3N gold samurai armor carving

The birth of this watch was inspired by a heartfelt conversation between Mr. Richard Mille and his close friend, Fernando Alonso. Alonso is a two-time Formula 1 world champion and a fan of traditional Japanese art and samurai spirit.

This new replica watch breaks through the boundaries of creativity and occupies a place in Richard Mille’s watch series known for its “decorative” and “ornamental value”. The samurai armor was hand-carved by sculptor Pierre-Alain Lozeron and painted by his wife Valérie Lozeron. The samurai armor carving shows the various styles of Japanese culture passed down from generation to generation, and the moral code conveyed by the samurai spirit is still prevalent in Japanese society today. Armor in 3N gold comes to life, reminiscent of the gold leaf elements used to decorate the most sacred temples and some traditional crafts in ancient Japan.

Many of the details in the watch refer to the family crest of the Asano family, a symbol of the Japanese Bushido spirit. At the beginning of the 18th century, Asano Naganori, who was also the lord of the “Daimyo” of the family domain, was also a lord followed by the forty-seven ronin. After avenging the death of the lord, these ronin resolutely followed the lord and died. In Japan, each samurai family has its own family crest. The tourbillon decorated with the Asano family crest is located at the 6 o’clock position of the watch. This family crest composed of two intersecting eagle feathers symbolizes the strength of the battle and the authority of the lord, and is also finely engraved on the winglet of the samurai helmet. The crown is made of titanium, Carbon TPT® and polished 3N gold, and features a Japanese maple leaf pattern. The maple leaf symbolizes the change of seasons, beauty, grace and the shortness of life. At the bottom, two knives are engraved in their sheaths, with the blades pointing upwards for quick extraction in the face of danger. 2022 replica watches

As a dual artistic fusion of sculpture and carving, the production of samurai armor requires patience, meticulousness, dexterity and enthusiasm. “There are so many similarities between the knife and the chisel, between the sharp edge and the precise positioning of the incision of the engraver’s skill, one cannot help but think of the resonance of Bushido and the ingenuity of the craftsman,” says Pierre-Alain Lozeron. After more than 16 hours of precision engraving and 9 hours of painting – it took more than a full day to create the 11 parts of the “Samurai”, which are seamlessly embedded around the RM 47 Tourbillon movement.

The samurai armor is like a guardian, providing loyal protection to the RM47 hand-wound calibre with hours and minutes display. The base plate and the hollow bridge are made of black PVD-treated grade 5 titanium alloy, an alloy commonly used in the aerospace industry, with high biocompatibility, corrosion resistance, hardness and surface flatness. This ensures that the movement runs smoothly.

The movement, case and decoration of the RM 47 watch reflect the harmonious fusion of elements. The tonneau case consists of three parts, including a 3N gold middle case, a black TZP ceramic bezel and a case back. With its outstanding aesthetic expression, the RM 47 Tourbillon evokes the spirit and connotation of Bushido, symbolizing a persistent pursuit of excellence and a respect for tradition.

New: Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5226G

Patek Philippe copy has launched the new Ref in its iconic Calatrava collection. Made of 5226G white gold, new textured dial and case sides with guilloché de Paris studs.

A new Calatrava is usually a warm welcome to the collection. Last year, Patek Philippe launched the Ref. 6119 with surprising success, as it brought the Clou de Paris bezel back to the collection. This year, the new Calatrava comes in white gold, but features a self-winding Calibre 26-330 SC with sweep seconds, date and hack seconds.

The main difference from the Calibre 30-255PS used in Ref. 6119 is that this movement has a date mechanism and the seconds hand is a centrally mounted sweep hand instead of an auxiliary seconds hand in the sub-dial at 6 o’clock.

Patek Philippe Calibre 26-330 SC.
But the sport is not entirely new. The dial is now a textured dial, made on a printing press, with a gradient from charcoal grey to black around the edges. The hands are less classic, but probably a more modern syringe shape with a luminous coating, while the hands of the Ref.6119 are very classic Dauphine shapes without luminous.

And, of course, the studded Paris motif engraved on the side of the case. This new design treats the lugs as extensions and integrates with the case backsplash. The case is a “just right” 40mm, slightly higher than the 39mm of the Ref.6119.

These two features also apply to the new Ref. 5326G calendar time, we regard these two watches as siblings. Of course, the 5326 is very useful in combining the annual calendar with Patek Philippe’s excellent two-time-zone implementation, while the 5226 is time-only, with a date. As we said in our review of the 5320, the look is determined to be more modern (albeit inspired by vintage cameras) and likely aimed at a younger demographic than traditional Patek Philippe customers. Although, in fact, the design may be timeless and appreciated by children of all ages.

Calatrava new in contemporary retro style with guilloche de Paris decoration

Patek Philippe is unique not only in its creative and technical mastery of movements, but also in its creativity in cases and dials. The latest addition to the Calatrava collection, the new white gold Reference 5226G-001, perfectly exemplifies the pursuit of excellence in all areas of watchmaking.

Based on the round, streamlined case shape that has made Calatrava models famous since 1932, Patek Philippe has reworked its flanks with guilloche de Paris (nail pattern) on both sides – a The pattern symbolizes the year 2021 in the 2021 Calatrava Clous de Paris Reference 6119. To allow this guilloche pattern to run all the way around the strap, the designers also created a special case structure in which the lugs form an integral part of the case back.

The charcoal grey vintage-style dial features black gradient edges. Its slightly grainy texture is reminiscent of vintage camera bags. The dial features white gold applied numerals with a beige luminous coating, as well as a low-profile “railway” scale for the seconds hand. Hours and minutes are indicated by syringe-shaped white gold hands with beige luminous coating. The date display is displayed through an aperture at 3 o’clock, printed in beige on a black background.

This new model is powered by the self-winding 26-330 SC calibre with stop-seconds function.

The new Reference 5226G-001 comes with two interchangeable straps – one in beige calfskin with a nubuck finish and the other in black calfskin with an embossed fabric pattern and beige stitching – both made of White gold claw clasp secures.
