Common ground as legends: AUDEMARS PIGUET and Montreux Jazz Festival

It is often heard that Buy replica watches brands cooperate with famous cars. After all, it is easy to intuitively understand the common concept of seeking the speed limit and precise minutes and seconds; as for the compatibility of watches and music? They are all extended from theoretical calculation to emotional expression. They also share the incomparable enthusiasm for creation and the endless pursuit of technology. After careful exploration, there are so many echoes of ideas. Therefore, the cooperation between AUDEMARS PIGUET and the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland not only guides us to discover some commonalities between music and watch art, but also highlights the core values that both parties value equally.

In jazz, the personal skills and talents of the musicians are of course highly respected, but the truly moving phrases will only emerge when the voices and instruments blend with each other; Angles and horns are all part of an excellent timepiece, and only when the mechanical structure is perfectly fastened and operated precisely, the delicate hand-polished and polished parts and the calculated perfect visual proportion can be meaningful.

On the stage of jazz, exquisite skills, unique personality, interaction between musicians, audience and band members trigger unique encounters one after another; whether this experience is the same as AUDEMARS PIGUET Audemars Piguet’s watch brings us the touch Quite similar? This year, the brand joined hands with brand ambassador Mark Ronson to plan a unique music experience on the closing night of the Montreux Jazz Festival, writing a new chapter for cross-border cooperation.

To be exciting, you must first interact with people
Watches and music, connecting with people, can make legends

If you like jazz, you must be a person who is willing to explore infinite possibilities and have an open and diverse taste perspective, because there are so many aspects to appreciate in jazz, such as melody, rhythm, harmony, improvisational interaction of musicians and showing off skills; it can be compared with Various music styles blend and intersect. At the same time, jazz always has its own style, which sounds like a unique “jazz flavor”. This kind of characteristic that is both integrated and full of self-individuality, the pursuit of excellence and the courage to innovate may be one of the reasons why AUDEMARS PIGUET joined hands with the Montreux Jazz Festival. perfect replica watches

In the minds of music fans around the world, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland is a world-class legendary stage. It has been held since 1967 and is the oldest and second largest jazz festival in the world. Every year at the beginning of July, Montreux, located on the northern shore of Lake Geneva, Switzerland, will hold a 16-day music festival. As many as 250,000 spectators flock to this Swiss town, and countless top musicians and emerging musicians will appear one after another. Performance.

What makes music so exciting is the interaction with people. Just like the most fascinating part of jazz, there is nothing more fascinating than the moment when the musicians perform “out of sequence”. The freer rhythm tests the tacit understanding of the band members, thereby endowing classic music with different styles of interpretation and gorgeous show-off skills. It is also most likely to erupt at this moment! Whether it is the spark of interaction between band members or the mutual rendering and blending of the audience’s emotions, the connection with people is the key to achieving a perfect performance and creating classic works.

Since 2010, AUDEMARS PIGUET fake has supported the digital collection project of the Montreux Jazz Festival. “The priceless treasure. In 2019, not only did the two parties become global partners, but the brand further promoted the music sponsorship plan, resulting in a cooperation with brand ambassador Mark Ronson.

Today’s Montreux Jazz Festival is becoming more and more grand, and the content of the performances is no longer limited to jazz music, but a wide range of different types of musicians to perform on stage. Emphasizing historical heritage while being able to keep pace with the times and be brave in innovation are the same core values that AUDEMARS PIGUET is proud of.

How does the watch pay homage to music?
Through the scenes most familiar to musicians, move people’s hearts with rhythm

AUDEMARS PIGUET’s support and love for music art not only becomes a partner of the music festival in essence, but also turns into the exclusive design vocabulary of watches on the other hand. The brand understands that wristwatches are just like music, which deserves persistence and ideals. These arts, which are constantly pursuing excellence, are of course very suitable for being endowed with a lofty image, but the most important element is always the intimate connection with people and the sincere interaction of emotions— — that is, how to touch people’s hearts. The Royal Oak Offshore Royal Oak Offshore Music Limited Edition watch is the brand’s tribute to the world music scene and the tireless musicians who have devoted themselves to creation.

The brand has chosen a very bold design that can even be said to have set a brand precedent. The classic “Tapisserie” check surface of the Royal Oak Offshore is printed with a colorful audio equalizer pattern; the strap resembles an audio plug. The interface and the crown guard bridge like a mixer pusher directly express the inspiration of music for watch creation through scenes that musicians are all too familiar with. Prior to this, this music limited edition watch has launched five styles of different materials. This year’s new model is a black ceramic case with a diameter of 37mm, with a black easy-to-change “mosaic” textured rubber strap. Among monotones, the undulating rhythm of the color equalizer is more dynamic.

The brand ambassador will hold a show at the 2023 Music Festival
A live performance is a wonderful journey

This year’s Montreux Jazz Festival, AUDEMARS PIGUET Audemars Piguet invited brand ambassador Mark Ronson to jointly plan a unique music show on the closing night.

We often say that Best replica watches collection is like a journey, and the music show of AUDEMARS PIGUET and Mark Ronson’s “Dream Band” is not only a live performance of tens of minutes, but also a period of inspiration, generational support and extraordinary creation. course.

Ulysse Nardin Skeleton X Magma

It’s rare for a new watch to get an immediate nickname when it comes out. I will continue to call it “Darth Maul®”. The Skeleton X Magma‘s flowing lines of red and black are reminiscent of the iconic villain’s skin and face tattoos, and is the company’s step into a new world of watch design. When it comes to the soul of a watch, Athens is usually at the forefront of materials (check out all the news of them integrating silicon into their movements over the past decade), but has been fairly stagnant when it comes to external materials. It’s not necessarily a bad thing (or a good thing), just “yes”.

Ulysse Nardin released something very unexpected but very cool today. Darth Maul® is a new interpretation of the Ulysse Nardin executive style watch. The general layout of the executive gets a much-needed facelift in the new Skeleton X Magma. In addition to the usual colors, Ulysse Nardin’s forays into more “experimental” materials now appear on the outside of what Ulysses calls a carbon magma case. The red and black finishes create a watch whose overall aesthetic will be the choice of many who normally look to Hublot for something more “edgy”. Review replica watch

Additionally, those on a smaller budget who like the look of some of the red Roger Dubuis Excalibur models will immediately love the look of the new Darth Maul®. Ulysse Nardin’s UN-371 movement also provides buyers with a 96-hour power reserve, which in no way detracts from the watch’s appeal.

The 43mm watch is big enough to stand out on the wrist, but not too big to be obnoxious. Wearing a watch with a red and black case isn’t a subtle accessory choice, so the typical wearer wouldn’t necessarily expect it to be subdued, but this watch does a good job of being both loud and fairly docile. Also, for those who liked the Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon “Stars and Stripes” edition a few years ago, this watch will be a more affordable option with a similarly unique color scheme.

If I were running Ulysse Nardin fake, I would want to price my more “edgy” watches a bit lower than Hublot’s in order to gain more market share and then start increasing the cost of “entering” the brand. Ulysse Nardin could do well with this more “exclusive” approach, but that’s a pretty high price to enter, especially considering it’s an increasingly saturated segment. Here’s their current competition: most of Hublot’s watches, some new Defy creations from Zenith, a colorful Royal Oak Offshore, Omega’s steady stream of Speedmaster and Ocean Planet ceramic color combos released, and more.

Corum Admiral 45 Skeleton Flying Tourbillon

The Admiral Collection is a coveted collectible watch, and this new version is high-tech.

It’s a long name, but the latest Corum Admiral 45 Automatic watch has it. The Admiral Collection is a coveted collectible watch for the nautical world, and this new edition takes a high-tech and visionary approach. Admirals usually feature colorfully painted beautiful nautical pennants on their dials. However, this new version deviates from the classic look and materials. For this best watch, the brand has used high-tech materials not previously used in the collection.

The case is made of lightweight carbon mixed with 18 karat gold sequins. Along with the creation of the carbon case, gold flecks are incorporated randomly, making each case unique. Not only is the case advanced, but the brand’s in-house developed automatic movement is skeletonized, allowing you to better observe the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock.

The tourbillon escapement is constantly moving and is designed to compensate for timing errors caused by the effect of gravity on the wrist when the watch is in different positions. The hour and minute flanges are gold and the nautical pennant is black (instead of colored) to complete the look. A rubber and synthetic fabric strap with solid gold stitching completes this high-tech/high-mechanical watch.

Grand Seiko Introduces 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition

Flagship movement in a 44GS case.

Launched in 2020 in the all-new Evolution 9 collection, fake Grand Seiko‘s top-of-the-line 0f-the-line mechanical and Spring Drive movements are now housed in a unique 44GS case, which turns 55 this year.

The 44GS case, with its wide, flat lugs, is a familiar, typical Grand Seiko (GS) design, but the Heritage Collection 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition pairing brings a relatively new feature: the case is made exclusively by the brand The Ever Brilliant Steel was machined for the first time, and the dial now has an unusually distinct woodgrain pattern.

Typical of the brand’s recent launch, the 44GS 55th Anniversary Edition iterates on familiar elements but makes a difference with a few tweaks. It’s a subtlety that appeals to enthusiasts who cherish thematic changes, although the casual observer will find it difficult to distinguish the models. But the fundamental appeal of the GS remains, which is top execution in its price segment.

That said, the latest pair is arguably even more special. One factor in their favor is the patterned dial. This is a new addition to the GS collection, and an exclusive so far, for only two models, both of which are expensive watches in precious metals. Of course, the new 44GS is steel, so it’s more affordable. Seiko Heritage fake

That said, the latest pair is arguably even more special. One factor in their favor is the patterned dial. This is a new addition to the GS collection, and an exclusive so far, for only two models, both of which are expensive watches in precious metals. Of course, the new 44GS is steel, so it’s more affordable.

Retro design, modern movement
Debuted in 1967, the 44GS case is probably the most iconic case of the GS, thanks to its recognizable style centered on the wide faceted lugs, demonstrating the brand’s prowess in flat finishes. Notably, Ever Brilliant Steel may further enhance the polished finish GS is known for, as the alloy has a more silvery appearance. The latest Seiko watch with the Ever Brilliant Steel case is a no-nonsense diver’s watch that downplays the visual appeal of steel.

Unlike the streamlined and modern Evolution 9 case, the 44GS is very retro in style. Unfortunately, the retro case comes with an outdated five-link bracelet, although this is easy to fix as the case looks just as good, if not better, on a leather strap.

The movements in the new pairing are the brand’s flagship self-winding Spring Drive and Hi-Beat movements. Launched two years ago, both movements are technically superior to their predecessors, boasting longer power reserves and new features that improve timekeeping.

Both movements are also slimmer than their predecessors, giving the 44GS case a slimmer, elegant profile previously only possible with the brand’s quartz fake watches.

Spring Drive cal. For example, the 9RA2 has a power reserve of 5 days, up from 3 days for the cal. 9R65, and improved accuracy to within 10 seconds per month through a redesigned oscillator IC.

And Spring Drive cal. The 9RA2 is the same in all models, mechanically calibrated. The trim of the 9SA5 varies according to the price of the respective model (in part because the automatic and Spring Drive movements are produced in different factories).

For example, hot blue screws are only used for calibration. The 9SA5 is mounted on a precious metal watch. But that seems to have changed with the new 44GS, which also features blue screws in its movement – a small upgrade, but a big plus in terms of visual appeal.

Experience firsthand the new Zenith CHRONOMASTER SPORT and 1/10th SECOND EL PRIMERO

Zenith returns to its Chronomaster Sport series, launching two new chronographs equipped with El Primero, setting a new tone for the brand. It’s been 5 years since we saw the new Chronomaster Sport, the new implementation uses a traditional conceptual approach, obviously aimed at some of the main products in the category. As Zenith El Primero, it has the benefits of a built-in strong tradition. It also has an easy-to-understand design language, and Zenith is doing well while bringing El Primero into new areas.

The Chronomaster Sport has always been one of El Primero‘s more advanced designs, able to quickly adapt to new trends (for better or worse) and to attract new customers who value the modernity of their timepieces. The product released in 2015 has a diameter of 45 mm and a thickness of 14 mm or more. It uses oversized hour markers and hands, and is equipped with crouched, slightly rough numbers in the sub-dial. The three-color color scheme was cancelled and replaced by a uniform appearance color that matched the dial. Although handsome in some respects, it fell into a disturbing situation in the context of the El Primero name.

The new Chronomaster Sport series is clear at a glance and more meaningful. The new watch is launched in 2 styles, which can be recognized at a glance as the Zenith El Primero chronograph, which is very similar to the current Rolex Daytona (Ref. 116500), thanks to the prominent black ceramic bezel with your choice A white or black dial. Of course, a version of the El Primero movement appeared in Daytona for 12 years (reference number 16520), so you can say that this is an appropriate similarity. Fortunately, Daytona is a very beautiful watch.

As Zenith, this is not exactly your standard chronograph, it differs from watches such as Daytona in some important ways. The most striking thing is the chronograph itself. In the Chronomaster Sport, it can walk around the dial in just 10 seconds, tracking every tenth of a second along the way. You will notice the unusual layout of the bezel to allow this measurement, and it replaces the more traditional speedometers that you would normally find occupying this area. It is not as strong as the Land Rover 21 we are showing you here, but it can be said that it is more useful in measuring the types of things that normal humans need to measure.

The dial itself is dominated by three super-large ranges, which have received the three-tone processing of Zenith that we know and love. Here, they appear as blue, anthracite, and light gray. The rest of the dial is an exercise of restraint, with only a hash of minutes and seconds appearing between the applied hour batons, which themselves are beveled and polished. The date window appears at 4:30 and the color matches the dial. The simple dial with eye-catching, clear hands and hour markers reminds people of Deluca, which was rarely seen in the late 80s and early 90s, which is a very good thing. That watch is a story from another day, but it is refreshing to refer to these areas of its history to this effect when seeing luxury Zenith.

The steel case has a diameter of 41 mm. Thanks to the protruding bezel, every point on the wrist can be worn. The lugs have a radical but uniform curve towards the wrist, with sharp polished chamfers on the edges. From top to bottom, this greatly reduces the lugs and forms a watch around the wrist, effectively hiding the thickness of about 14 mm. Overall it wears well, if you think Daytona is too small, this should be your perfect choice. Plus, you might actually get one of them.

Inside the Chronomaster Sport, El Primero 3600 beats at a frequency of 5 Hz and provides a 60-hour reserve. This is the same as what we saw in the 2019 Chronomaster 2 limited edition release. This watch is very similar to what we saw here, but is more conceptual in execution. Chronomaster Sport is a regular production model, this is the first such appearance of the 3600. You can see the movement through the bottom cover of the exhibition. Although it is not beautiful, it is really interesting. As mentioned earlier, the chronograph is read every tenth of a second and is read through a pinion connected to the escapement itself (rather than borrowing from the gear train). There are 3,600 seconds in an hour, and this action jumps at 36,000 VpH, and it is easy to calculate from there.

The new Chronomaster Sport will be equipped with a steel Oyster bracelet with a polished center link. The edges of the brushed links have a polished bevel, which provides some visual depth to the entire bracelet. The fit and finish of the bracelet is not as perfect as you see on Daytona, but it can be used daily. Depending on the color of the dial, a blue or black fabric strap is also available, which looks more suitable for the overall beauty. Yes, it also looks great on a nylon strap. cheap replica watches
