Ulysse Nardin Skeleton X Magma

Few new cheap watches get a nickname immediately. I will continue to call it “DarthMaul®”. The smooth red and black lines of Skeleton X Magma are reminiscent of the skin and facial tattoos of villains. This is a step for the company to take a new world of watch design. When it comes to the soul of the watch, Ulysse Nardin is usually at the forefront of materials (see all the news about the integration of silicon and movement in the past decade), but has been stagnant for external materials Not move forward. This is not necessarily a bad thing (or a good thing), but just “yes”.

Today, cheap Ulysse Nardin released some very unexpected but cool things. DarthMaul® is the refreshing look of the Ulysse Nardin Executive style watch. The general layout of the Executive has received much-needed renovation in the new Skeleton X Magma.

In addition to the general color, Ulysse Nardin called it a carbon magma box, and now it also shows the appearance of more “experimental” materials. The red and black finishes create a watch, and the overall aesthetics will become the choice of many people who usually look to Hublot for a more “avant-garde” feel.

In addition, people who like the appearance of certain red Roger Dubuis Excalibur models, but those on a smaller budget, will immediately enjoy the appearance of the new DarthMaul®. Ulysse Nardin’s UN-371 movement also provides buyers with a 96-hour power reserve, which will never compromise the appeal of the fake men watch. The height of the watch is only 43 millimeters, which is enough to reveal the wrist, but not annoying.

A watch with a red and black case is not a very delicate accessory choice from the beginning, so the typical wearer may not want to soften it, but this watch does a good job, but the sound is loud but also very tame. In addition, for those who liked the “Stars and Stripes” version of the Ulysse Nardin Executive Skull Tourbillon a few years ago, this watch will be a more affordable choice, and its color scheme has similar uniqueness.

Ulysse Nardin can use this “exclusive” approach, but the price is high, especially considering that it is an increasingly saturated market segment. This is their current competition: most Hublot watches, Zenith’s new Defy watches, colorful Royal Oak Offshores, Omega’s endless Speedmaster and Planet Ocean ceramic color matching release and so on, these are Roger Dubuis (Roger Dubuis), fake Richard Mille, HYT, etc. before we reach higher prices. We will see what happens, but I think, even though this is a cool watch.

Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph Racing Stripes Edition

At the latest 2018 Rennsport Reunion Gathering in Laguna Seca, California, this is the world’s largest Porsche racing gathering. The fine watch brand Chopard fully believes that this event is an excellent time to release new watches with Porsche’s special era characteristics. Let’s take a look at their “Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph Racing Stripes Edition” with the theme of motorsports.

Chopard has been celebrating the festive atmosphere, celebrating their 30th anniversary with the Italian Mille Miglia race. They first launched five brightly colored limited edition watches, named “Chopard Mille Miglia Racing Colors”, to celebrate this holiday. These selected colors are all inspired by the 1930s tones, and each of the five national teams in the competition is assigned one: “Rosso Corsa” (red) from Italy, “Speed ​​Silver” (gray) from Germany ), “Vintage Blue” in Germany, “Speed ​​Yellow” in Belgium, “British Racing Green” in the UK.

Although the origin of the blue and white racing stripes seen on this newly released timepiece can be traced back to 1951. At that time, the rules set by the FIA ​​stipulated that all racing teams must use colors to represent their country. The blue and white colors on this Chopard watches have something to do with the United States, especially the millionaire automaker and pilot Briggs Cunningham, who dreams of winning the “24 Hours of Le Mans.” Although he will continue to participate in the race, he has never actually won the championship, but the “Cunningham Stripe” failed in racing history.

The 42mm case is made of stainless steel, with a transparent sapphire display case on the back, allowing you to view the internal structure of the mechanical movement. You can see the words “RACING STRIPES” engraved in blue on the sapphire crystal.

It is equipped with two steel buttons, and a crown can be set between them to operate the timing function. You can see that the racing wheel is carefully crafted. All crowns are made of sapphire crystal, which can help express the waterproof function, up to 50 meters (164 feet).

The time is displayed on the silver dial, with large open-cut wide font printed Arabic numerals in retro fonts, followed by a smaller black printed second index mark, and a larger minute index mark, incremented by one or two every five minutes Arabic numerals. It can also be seen that the tachymeter dial is hovering around the circumferential flange of the dial.

The three sub-dials after completion are located: the sub-second hand at 3 o’clock, the 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and the 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock. The red hands of the central seconds hand imitate the “Rossa Corsa” arrow-shaped Mille Miglia logo at 12 o’clock; the central rhodium hands are treated with a luminous coating to enhance readability. There is also a date hole between the 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock positions.

Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph Racing Stripes Edition

Mounted on the fake watch is a perforated black leather strap with contrasting blue exposed pins and is fastened to the wrist with a stainless steel clasp.
