U-Boat Flightdeck Ceramic Bezel Carbon Fiber Watch

The Flightdeck-bezel series is one of the U-Boat cheap watch concepts in which carbon fiber plays an important role. These Flightdeck chronograph variants come with bezels made of various materials. Titanium and gold were among the first materials used. At this year’s Baselworld, I saw the latest model – the Flightdeck Ceramic Bezel, with a dial entirely covered in carbon fiber.

The reason carbon fiber works so well on the U-Boat Flightdeck Ceramic Bezel is that the case is all black. The stainless steel case is PVD-coated, and the bezel, as the name suggests, is made of black ceramic. While it may sound like a remnant of old-school pottery-making techniques, the substance has made its way into the modern era, spanning high-tech industries such as aerospace and ballistic protection. In addition to its many uses, ceramic has been fully adapted and popularized for use in cheap swiss watches in recent years. Its use has many advantages. It’s lightweight and scratch-resistant – it’s harder than stainless steel and often even sapphire – and it’s fully pigmented, meaning any damage won’t show up as a different color underneath. All of these features are especially useful for bezels that are subject to abuse. Its hardness also determines the material’s affinity for fine finishes.

Beneath the thick sapphire crystal protected by a ceramic bezel is our carbon fiber dial. The white fluorescent paint of the thick hands contrasts sharply with the smooth carbon fiber background. The hour markers are finished in a more subtle gray paint that appears to float on the polymer over carbon fiber. Embossed auxiliary dial indicates chronograph measurements and elapsed seconds. Like the glossy ceramic bezel, carbon fiber adds a high-tech elegance to this impressive timepiece.

The rest of the case is straight out of the Flightdeck playbook. Measuring 50mm in diameter, it has a cap that screws into the left side of the case (like the U-Boat watches), protecting the already sturdy crown. As if the massive size of the case wasn’t enough, this unassuming crown cover adds to the case’s undeniable weight, but its position on the left makes the Flighdeck chrono surprisingly comfortable. The size of these watches is undeniable; often intimidating to those not used to larger watches. However, in my experience, it is the model that most converts those who are skeptical of larger timepieces to replica U-Boats.

In addition to using Swiss mechanical movements, U-boat watches are made in Italy. As an Italian company, it’s no surprise that they take the design and manufacturing of their leather watch straps very seriously. Like Italian shoes, belts, and jackets, U-boat bands were flashy, luxurious, and often expensive. The high-quality crocodile leather lining, soft calfskin leather and rubber protective frame are assembled by hand in the area around Florence, where the company is based.

The U-Boat Ceramic Bezel Flighdeck Chronograph is strong, sturdy, and bold—everything that points to the brand’s leaning toward instrument style. On the other hand, the sleek black ceramic bezel and carbon fiber dial give this replica watches online a high-tech elegance that is suitable for all elegant outings and dress codes.

Urwerk UR-100V Speed of Light

Urwerk gives its best-selling UR-100V a cosmic-themed makeover Now Urwerk’s best-selling model, the UR-100 is an unpretentious timepiece by Urwerk standards, equipped with the brand’s signature running time satellite disc that keeps track of hours and minutes. In other words, it served as the base model that attracted many enthusiasts to try the independent watchmaker’s avant-garde time display.

As a result, the UR-100 has gone through several iterations to cater to the varying tastes of collectors, offering a range of materials and dial colors. However, the latest iteration introduces something new to the display. For the first time in the series, the UR-100V Lightspeed includes a description of the time it takes for sunlight to reach every planet in the solar system.

Travel time display
Staying true to its UR-100 roots, the UR-100V Lightspeed retains that model’s sleek case design (now made of carbon) and is slimmer than typical replica Urwerk models, ensuring fit for a variety of wrist sizes. In addition, it retains the hovering hour and minute functions, consisting of three satellite discs located on the turntable to indicate the hours, each disc taking turns indicating the minutes on the arcuate scale. The display, while simpler than the brand’s satellite cubes, offers a glimpse of Urwerk’s indie watchmaking style at an affordable price.

However, the latest Lightspeed does away with the dual astronomy displays found in earlier UR-100 models. This feature represents the distance the Earth travels around its axis of rotation every 20 minutes (approximately 555 kilometers) and the distance the Earth travels around the Sun every 20 minutes (approximately 35,700 kilometers). This information is conveyed through the movement of the hands on the traveling hour dial that rotates around the entire dial. Conveniently, the cutout is sized such that it takes exactly 20 minutes for a pointer to pass through it.

While the dual distance display was gradually phased out, Urwerk introduced new astronomical information on the dial. The speed of light model features the time it takes for light to travel from the Sun to each planet in the solar system. This information was determined by calculating the distance between the Sun and each planet, taking into account the speed of light, which is approximately 299,792.458 meters per second – the fastest achievable speed in the universe. For example, it was determined that sunlight takes about 8.3 minutes on average to reach Earth. astronomia casino watch

Since the speed of light is a constant, usually represented by the symbol “c” in physical calculations, the time it takes for sunlight to reach each planet remains consistent, temporarily ignoring the change in the distance between the Sun and each planet throughout the orbital period. This information is now displayed on the dial, forming fixed values rather than a dynamic time display. It is neither an indicator nor a complicating factor that the level of interest is lower than initial impressions suggest.

Control winding speed
Inside the watch is the UR 12.02, which consists of a proprietary module from URwerk and a base movement made by Vaucher, unlike earlier movements derived from Zenith movements. However, UR 12.02 retains the “Windfänger” winding system. There is a star wheel at the oscillating weight. Each time the oscillating weight rotates, it can complete six revolutions, thereby controlling the winding speed. fake watches for sale

Zenith launches new Chronomaster Original three-date watch

Dear IWS friends, as you know from the launch of the LVMH Watch Week concept, these are exciting days for the watchmaking industry, and especially for the brands led by the Arnault family. On the occasion of this event, Zenith has added a fascinating new complication to its Chronomaster Original collection: the triple calendar.

Design and functionality
The Chronomaster Original Triple Calendar is an extremely elegant watch with a vintage charm that, like the rest of the collection, respects its DNA. The brand decided to launch the watch in three versions: white dial, green dial, and finally anthracite dial.

All three watches come in the typical 38mm stainless steel case of the Chronomaster Original collection, with sharp, elongated lugs. Being a triple calendar chronograph, the dial features three chronograph counters, with the day, month and month visible through three windows at 10, 2 and 4:30 o’clock respectively. The final gem, on the counter at 6 o’clock, we also find the moon phase, making it even more romantic.

Each model comes with an integrated bracelet or calfskin strap without the quick-switch system unique to other cheap Zenith collections, maintaining the nostalgic and traditional DNA of the Chronomaster Original collection.

Triple calendar chronograph movement
Opening the sapphire crystal case back, we can admire the El Primero 3610 self-winding movement. In the version with calendar and moon phase, this movement maintains a frequency of 5 Hz for the first time, guaranteeing one-tenth of a second. Accuracy. Additionally, the power reserve is 60 hours.

The Zenith Chronomaster Original Triple Calendar is an ambitious and highly competitive variant of the Chronomaster series. Ambitious to combine a chronograph with a triple calendar with moon phases; competitive because all this is offered at a very interesting market price. https://www.reviewluxurystore.com/

Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE

Creating a truly exotic movement is no small horological achievement. Only a few brands have the ability to build something beyond the usual complications – even the high-profile tourbillon – to offer something truly special, but there’s one pitfall that nearly all of these watches face: wearability. These unorthodox mechanical layouts tend to create packaging issues, so when a watch comes along that combines this kind of out-of-the-box engineering with relatively drama-free dimensions, it’s a big deal. For more than 20 years, the replica Ulysse Nardin Freak series has dazzled enthusiasts with its concept of a gear train as a minute hand, but even this series has struggled with proportions in that time. By comparison, the new Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE is remarkably wearable and restrained for such a high-concept watchmaking experience, and the result is quite possibly the most attractive, tasteful, and above all balanced Freak model to date. .

Like previous Freak models, the case of the Ulysee Nardin Freak ONE has one instantly recognizable feature – the absence of any crown, resulting in a completely symmetrical case profile. Since then, however, the Freak ONE has differed significantly from its predecessors. Aside from its crownless design, this DLC-coated titanium and 18K red gold case looks very basic, almost stuffy, compared to some of its haute horlogerie rivals. The lugs are a classic sporty taper with narrow polished chamfers and clean linear brushing, and the case sides are classic vertical slabs except for the absence of a crown. In short, the Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE wears like a regular watch on your wrist. At 44mm wide it may not be small, but it’s definitely not artificial, especially thanks to the combination of lightweight titanium and slim black. When the size of the regular crown is taken into account, the Freak ONE wears more like a 42mm wide watch, while the 12mm thick case profile reinforces the proportions of a “normal sports watch” on the wrist.

Of course, there’s actually nothing mediocre about the Freak ONE, as is immediately evident by taking a closer look at the red gold bezel. This bezel may look misaligned based on the sharp facet pattern in this brushed and polished element, but it’s the only real visual clue to the Freak ONE’s unique winding and time-setting system. Flip over the “Freak” plate at 6 o’clock and the rotating bezel will unlock, but it’s not just the bezel itself that’s spinning. Twisting this bi-directional bezel also adjusts the time setting forward and backward, providing the wearer with a massive tactile connection to the gear train that initiates the conversation in the Freak ONE. On the back, the sapphire display caseback is equally unorthodox. By turning the caseback outer ring counterclockwise, the wearer can manually wind the movement, although the Freak ONE’s innovative winding system makes this largely unnecessary (more on that later). While the Freak ONE’s case is extremely durable and packed with fun tricks, its Achilles’ heel is being waterproof. This is the biggest obstacle facing the idea of everyday wear of the cheap replica watches, as the 30-meter depth rating makes the Freak ONE simply not up to the task in many sporting situations.

Like the case, the skeleton dial of the Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE is based on previous Freak models, but presents these concepts in a simpler and more refined way. Strictly speaking, only the narrow outer ring with its lightly printed Arabic numerals and gold hour markers is the actual dial surface, while everything else beneath the sapphire crystal is movement components. Most of the space is taken up by a wide matte black disc with a delicate ridged texture and printed with the Ulysse Nardin logo. Thanks to its wide golden triangular shape here with lots of luminous light, the rotating disc can be used as an hour hand. However, it’s the minute hand that really steals the show. This is the signature disc of the Freak collection, a rotating gear train component that makes one revolution around the dial every hour, essentially allowing the movement to rotate around itself. The component is visually significantly simplified compared to previous Freak iterations, but Ulysse Nardin adds a cheeky nod to its own heritage in the form. The main bridge structure containing the gear train components and minute markers also forms the brand’s iconic anchor emblem. The only other place the anchor logo appears is on the strap lining, making this an impressively restrained branding exercise. The flying balance bridge serves as the counterweight of the minute hand and rotates together with the gear train above the hollow dial surface, becoming a dynamic visual highlight. Additionally, the Freak ONE technically has a 60-minute tourbillon complication due to the escapement being mounted on a rotating assembly. It’s a talking point for the most die-hard sports fans, but the sheer mechanical spectacle of this rally at work should be enough to stop the uninitiated believer.

Ulysse Nardin powers the Freak ONE with its own UN-240 automatic movement. The basic specs behind the UN-240 were solid, if not groundbreaking, with a massive 90-hour power reserve at 21,600 bph. However, the real mechanical showpiece (aside from the dial, of course) is the brand’s proprietary Grinder winding rotor system. Designed for ultra-fast bi-directional winding with even slight movements, the Grinder is certainly a technically impressive piece of engineering. However, the view of the caseback with this winding system in operation is rather bland compared to the view from the dial side. The component looks less like a traditional mechanical movement than a series of matte sandblasted concentric rings with little contrasting finish or artistic structure to add visual interest.

To complete the Freak ONE’s sleek and (relatively) subtle black and gold look, Ulysse Nardin copy pairs the watch with a simple black textured fabric-effect rubber strap. While this strap is soft and fairly comfortable, it arguably lacks some of the features of other designs. However, as the final layer of Freak ONE quirkiness, this strap is mounted the other way around, with the tang buckle ending at 6 o’clock. This is ostensibly done to create a notch for the “Freak” nameplate on the case side at 6 o’clock, but it does enhance the feel for the wearer, and Ulysse Nardin dances to the beat of its own drum with this watch.

Creating a timeless haute horlogerie is a challenge that few brands are up to, and even fewer are able to launch a watch that breaks the mechanical mold without breaking normal wearing habits. With this in mind, the sleek, sophisticated Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE is a truly impressive achievement, pushing the boundaries of mechanical watchmaking while remaining practical, comfortable and stylish for almost every day wear.

Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 launches in new 38mm size

The Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 is available in a 38mm size for the first time.
The embossed dial that debuted on the steel model is again used, but in new purple and ivory hues.
This is a strictly precious metals, time and date only offering, at least for now

To be fair, the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 got off to an awkward start, with its hype subjecting it to widespread scrutiny and nitpicking. However, in its teenage years, the series has grown and developed into something stronger. The look is defined by refined aesthetics, evolved hand forms and dials. With more complex and skeletonized offerings, Audemars Piguet shows how they can make the most of real estate, and with its first foray into steel, the brand shows how Audemars Piguet’s Code 11.59 can be a strong entry-level offering for the brand. The only road the series hasn’t traveled yet is new sizes – until now. Of course, the previous model wasn’t a behemoth, but the more compact, classy size will certainly complement the existing range and lend an olive branch to smaller wrists. This new 38mm Code 11.59 Audemars Piguet automatic watch does just that.

With the downsizing comes zero compromise, at least on the outside. Apart from its dimensions, it is identical to the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 offering. The three-part case with a faceted center reminiscent of the Royal Oak is crafted in exactly the same way, with a predominantly brushed finish complemented by hand-chamfered and polished finishes. It also retains 30 meters of water resistance – I’d expect any size to be water resistant to 50 meters or more. The new 38mm diameter of the two new watches is 3mm smaller than the previous 41mm automatic configuration, and the thickness has also been reduced from 10.7mm to 9.6mm, making it 1.1mm thinner. replica women’s watches

As we saw on the steel model, Audemars Piguet once again features an embossed dial designed by Swiss guilloché craftsman Yann von Kaenel. The dials are stamped for clarity, but the stamps themselves are handmade by Kaenel. In steel we see blue, green and gradient beige. In this new 38mm watch, the case is strictly 18k rose gold, with a purple dial that will drive Los Angeles Lakers fans crazy (I know it’s not gold), and an ivory dial for those who prefer its classic creamy texture. Ivory often has vintage connotations, but within the Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 frame, it feels modern and stylish. However, neither has the smoky effect of the beige dial seen on the steel model. I certainly love seeing the two new faces, and really appreciate the color-matched date window, but I’d also like to see the 41mm steel construction scaled down to a 38mm size.

The only compromise, and by the most snobby of watch snob standards, is the switch from the in-house 4302 automatic movement to the Vaucher-based automatic 5900 movement. That’s a digestible drop from the 70-hour power reserve of the 4302-powered 41mm movement. The automatic model in the 38mm range has a 60-hour power reserve. To be clear, the decoration of the 5900 is done by Audemars Piguet, so unless you just want to always show off the in-house pieces in your collection, there’s really no reason to scoff at the use of the 5900. luxury watches replica

This is the part I always say. For a smaller 6.5-inch or so wrist, I appreciate the downsizing of the design, and I appreciate that the downsizing is limited to the dimensions rather than the entire product. The new 38mm models are a great start, but I’d be disappointed if we didn’t see this part of the range expand like the larger models. I wanted steel and ceramic, and I wanted complications—from chronograph to tourbillon—to be packed into this size. Speaking of ceramic, I can’t help but wonder how cool it would be if the ivory configuration had a ceramic middle case that matched the dial, instead of the current all-pink gold design. For those who are price-conscious, the size reduction from 41mm to 38mm also means a $1,200 price drop, so if you’re not that obsessed with in-house movements and prefer or are ambivalent about a more compact size, then This is Audemars Piguet’s Code.1159 to study, or at least keep an eye on as the collection grows. buy beautiful replica watches

Breitling Top Time B21 Classic Car Chronograph Tourbillon Watch

New Product Release: Breitling Top Time B21 Classic Car Chronograph Tourbillon Watch

Since its launch in mid-2021, Breitling’s Top Time classic car series has changed Top Time’s positioning in the brand hierarchy, from an entry-level, youth-oriented chronograph series to a more refined, high-end series that reflects lifestyle. The revised line features frequent brand collaborations, refined finishes and visual homages to some of the most beloved American cars of all time. Top Time’s move upmarket shows no signs of slowing down in 2023, with Breitling’s latest range taking the brand to new heights by introducing a tourbillon to the range for the first time. While its wild new complications may take over, the new Breitling Top Time B21 Classic Car Chronograph Tourbillon Collection (including the Breitling Top Time B21 Ford Mustang, Breitling Top Time B21 Shelby Cobra and Breitling Top Time B21 Chevrolet Kerr Vette) brings the top-level Time series to create a new realm of luxury through unique materials, refined appearance and a more low-key branding than its predecessor.

Interestingly, the case sizes of the new Breitling Top Time B21 Classic Car Chronograph Tourbillon series are not the same. The Top Time B21 Shelby Cobra and Top Time B21 Chevrolet Corvette both come in glossy black ceramic cases that are 44mm wide, while the Breitling Top Time B21 Ford Mustang’s warm bronze case is slightly smaller at 43mm wide. That being said, apart from the materials, there are very few differences graphically between the two case designs. Both case styles feature a wider, more majestic version of the familiar Top Time mid-century sports case silhouette seen in photos, with slightly tapered connecting lugs, narrow smooth bezels and richly brushed bezels. shell side. As one would expect, Breitling has equipped all three watches with a sapphire display caseback, allowing for unobstructed viewing of the movement inside. While these may be more luxurious variants of the basic Top Time platform, Breitling has maintained the sporty edge of the range, with all three models offering 100 meters of water resistance.

Like its standard chronograph siblings, the Breitling Top Time B21 Classic Car Chronograph Tourbillon Collection features dials inspired by their namesake, the beloved car. However, these models take a more subtle approach, using softer colors and no obvious car branding in the images. All three watches share the same dial layout, with a black outer tachymeter ring, the collection’s signature “squirrel” 60-minute chronograph subdial at 6 o’clock, and a tourbillon escapement to match its elegance rounded square cutout. There is a narrow skeleton bridge at 12 o’clock. From here on, each model adopts a layout in a different stylistic direction. With its surrounding bronze case and matching dial hardware, the Breitling Top Time B21 Ford Mustang’s vertically brushed Highland Green dial provides a deep, classic luxury color within the image, setting the tourbillon apart from the rest of the dial through matching and complementary tones. Partially coordinated. In contrast, the Breitling Top Time B21 Shelby Cobra adopts a more serious, understated style in the initial photos, with a desaturated navy blue brushed dial and blacked-out tourbillon bridge. However, the most eye-catching watch of the three is undoubtedly the Breitling Top Time B21 Chevrolet Corvette. Rather than featuring car paint-inspired dial tones like its counterparts, this model shifts the focus to the car’s dashboard. The dial surface is made from a single piece of walnut wood, with a rich graphic blend of highlights, shadows and textures. Wooden dials are indeed a rarity in the modern luxury cheap watch world, but the effect in the photos is vibrant, nuanced and truly eye-catching.

All three watches in the Breitling Top Time B21 Classic Car Chronograph Tourbillon collection are powered by the Caliber B21 automatic tourbillon chronograph movement. Breitling collaborated with movement specialist La Joux-Perret to develop the B21, debuting the Breitling Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon in 2022. The end result is an impressively stable performance with a 55-hour power reserve at 28,800 bph, and COSC-certified chronometer accuracy. Visually, the Caliber B21 watch is crisp and modern, although not graphically striking. Vertical brushing and chamfering of the upper three-quarter plate accentuate the broad corrugations on the main plate, while the engraved skeletonized rotor is dominated by a matching combination of vertical brushing and chamfering. As one would expect, though, the tourbillon is the visual centerpiece here, given its use of contrasting metal and the narrow, curved lower tourbillon bridge. Breitling equips all three models with a faux-perforated pull-style leather folding strap, available in midnight blue or cognac brown.

While the modern Top Time nameplate may have strayed far from its entry-level roots, the new Breitling Top Time B21 Classic Car Chronograph Tourbillon Collection proves that the range may well be able to thrive at the higher end of the market. replica watch stores

URWERK’s UR-230: The Eagle has landed

The URWERK UR-200 series is reaching new heights: with twin variable geometry turbines, twin shock absorbers and a hybrid winding system, the UR-7.30 movement spreads the wings of URWERK’s mechanical possibilities. cheap swiss watches

This UR-230 “Eagle” also received physical modifications, including the development of a CTP carbon fiber shell with a removable cover, as well as aerodynamic lines, a slimmer profile and Raptor-like dimensions. The UR-230 “Hawk” is a highly sophisticated and very popular animal.

The 200 Series welcomes a new generation: the UR-230. This “Eagle” is distinguished by its appearance, design and mechanics. The latest member of the URWERK family is equipped with satellite display, wandering hours and retrograde minutes, thanks to engine upgrades and high-tech modifications: “Ten years after the success of the UR-220, we hope that URWERK co-founder and master watchmaker Felix Baumgartner explains: “The UR-230 “Eagle” is performance-focused. The turbine that is one of the hallmarks of URWERK has been further improved. Today we launch a model whose robustness is enhanced by technology. “

The new UR-230 “Eagle” retains the display concept of the UR-220. It is a sophisticated version of URWERK’s signature rotating satellite complication. On the three-arm turntable, each rotating block carries the four-hour number. They roll along a 120-degree fan, with the current-hour surface pointing toward the observer. To display the minutes, these display cubes are embedded in aluminum 3D retrograde hands. At the end of the 60-minute journey, the skeletonized hand returns to index 0, responsible for displaying the cube for the next hour. Martin Frei, Art Director and Co-Founder of URWERK, said: “We are proud to introduce the UR-230, the latest member of our iconic Series 200 launched in 2006-2007, alongside the UR-201 ‘Hammerhead’. Since then, our constant pursuit of innovation has led us to rethink the collection while retaining its dynamism and power. We developed the concept of Predator Elegance in different contexts. We created the Maltese Falcon and the Pilgrim “”, the watch is similar to the Raptor and has a powerful retrograde system. Today we present the UR-230 Eagle. This new UR-230 features a complex half-hunter case (with protective cover) made of finely layered carbon. The UR-230 is both lightweight and sturdy, worthy of the title of King of the Sky. ” replica watches luxury

air flow
In addition to the time display, the UR-230 “Eagle” also showcases new features. URWERK has developed a world-first set of shock absorbers designed to protect the new UR-7.30 movement via the turbine. The first set of turbines is specifically designed to attenuate the impact of any external impact, ensuring the watch’s durability. The second group controls the air flow supplied to the winding system. The strength of this “air brake” is designed to adjust the winding power according to the wearer’s activity level, and is set by a rotating knob on the back of the watch.

The second switch opposite the first is used to fully disengage the rotor. The UR-230 “Eagle” then switches to manual winding mode. The degree of adjustment of these two functions is indicated by two symmetrical indicators on the CTP carbon cap at 11 and 1 o’clock.

heart and body
The UR-230 “Eagle” also features the same housing design as the UR-200 series. Trapezoidal shape, clearly elongated towards 6 o’clock, staggered around the sapphire window, crown at 12 o’clock, clever management of sharp and softened angles: the UR-230 “Eagle” reflects its URWERK nature. Its shell is once again made from CTP carbon, a material that offers the best weight/stiffness/graphics effects ratio.

The carbon, which is black, lightweight and hard, is made from stacked layers and pressed together at high temperatures. The resulting block is then processed into blocks, following a pattern that displays the layers in a regular, controlled geometric pattern. The back is made of black DLC titanium which is grooved and perfectly compatible with skin. Inside the case, the UR-230 “Eagle” encapsulates its UR-7.30 caliber in a sealed container similar to a safe. replica swiss watches online

beak and claws
The cover of the UR-230 Eagle can be raised 90 degrees to expose the entire satellite system. The purpose of this cover is to protect the sapphire crystal. “We created one shock protection for the movement and another shock protection for the sapphire crystal,” explains Felix Baumgartner. “The cover presented a series of technical difficulties in adjusting and joining the cover and housing design. The braking system was also tested and adjusted until we were completely satisfied.” It is also made from CTP carbon mixed with titanium. The beak-shaped edge provides finger grip, allowing it to be lifted. When you close it, a detent slows its stroke so that it rests gently on the sapphire crystal, then clicks into place. Like an eagle catching its prey in flight with its talons, it’s quiet and precise. jacob & co astronomia tourbillon

Avengers Assemble: Breitling Redesigns Its Sportiest Aero Series

Stylish yet authentic details, durable next-generation materials, and features like the brand’s powerful in-house caliber 01 redefine the flight of the new Breitling Avenger unveiled earlier today.

In a press release today on the newly designed Avenger series, Breitling CEO Georges Kern said: “The Avenger series was born to withstand the harsh conditions of a jet cockpit and support pilots in their operations. Highly demanding air mobility. It requires no less redesign.”

Offering three core styles – 44mm Chronograph, 44mm Automatic GMT Chronograph and 42mm Automatic Chronograph – Cohen continued in his statement about the new Avenger collection, “This collection combines all the performance with refined modernity. A perfect combination of aviation style.” Honestly, we find it hard to disagree, especially when you consider that the additional strap and detailing options open up a vast new world of Avengers for adventurous fans.

Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 and Night Mission
In addition to the inherent advantages of the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 that powers these models, which include COSC certification and a 70-hour power reserve, the Avenger B01 Chronograph’s choice of dial colors highlights its versatility: first, there’s the classic black dial; Equipped with black quarter-second, 30-minute and 12-hour counters. Next, there are Munsell Blue and Foam Green versions, both with black counters. Finally, there is a sandy beige model with white hour markers and black counters.

All models are crafted from stainless steel with white and red detailing and are available on a color-matched military leather strap or a sturdy three-link stainless steel bracelet. Additionally, these chronographs are water-resistant up to 30 bar, have sporty dials coated with Super-LumiNova, and also feature a unidirectional bezel and display case back.

Not to be outdone, the combination of the four watches’ sister watch, the Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 Night Mission, is as technical as it is bold, with a durable yet lightweight 44mm black ceramic case and rotating bezel . Available in dark or bold yellow dials with matching straps, these timepieces have Arabic hour markers and an additional luminous coating that takes the legibility of these timepieces up a notch.

Avenger Automatic GMT 44
The GMT-equipped model in the new Avengers collection, the Avenger Automatic GMT 44, is based on the rock-solid Breitling Caliber 32 movement with a 42-hour power reserve and features an easily set red second time zone. Hands passing through the stout main crown include Zulu (or GMT) time, which is preferred by pilots.

The Avenger Automatic GMT 44 also features a 44mm stainless steel case with a bolder, more legible bezel and a choice of dials, including traditional black or soft cobalt, as well as military leather in black or blue. Strap or thick stainless steel bracelet options.

Avenger Automatic 42
Powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17 movement with a 38-hour power reserve and a sporty unidirectional stainless steel bezel, this new Avenger Automatic 42 Three-Hand Watch appeals to those looking for a rugged, adventure-ready small watch. of people expressed some love. Similar to their Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 sibling.

In fact, the Avenger Automatic 42 model is definitely a smaller, less graphically detailed version of the Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 (sans the chronograph pushers and subdials, of course); however, these entry-level steel Avenger models are available in black, navy or camouflage green dial is available, and there is also the option of a color-matched military leather strap or steel bracelet, which makes a great visual and horological statement. A punch that will get attention. swiss movement replica watches

Panerai launches Luminor Chrono Carbotech PAM01219

An attractive but expensive carbon composite chronograph. watch replicas

After launching the PAM01419 SEAL Limited Edition Luminor Chrono Carbotech watch, Panerai is now adding it to the regular production lineup as the Luminor Chrono Carbotech PAM01219. The PAM01219 features the same carbon composite case and ETA-based P.9200 movement, and features a restrained, utilitarian dial with blue accents.

The PAM01219 is a new version of the ETA-powered Panerai chronograph, so while it’s not technically new, its clean design and lightweight carbon composite case are attractive.

Earlier versions of this chronograph were either less interesting, like the steel base model PAM01109, or over-engineered, like the PAM01419 SEAL version with a sniper reticle subdial. Stylistically, PAM01219 is clear and clean, with no superfluous elements.

However, PAM01219 is too expensive. It sells for about $17,000, which is expensive by any measure, especially since most rival brands have quality replicas watches with the same movement for less (and the Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono is less much). Panerai’s own catalog, meanwhile, includes the PAM00335, which has a ceramic case and an in-house movement with eight-day power and a monopusher chronograph, which makes it a relatively high value.

Large, lightweight and ETA
The PAM01219 has classic Panerai style, and the simple dial is a key part of its appeal. The dial is equally symmetrical, with a 30-minute counter at three o’clock balanced by a constant seconds hand at nine o’clock.

The 44mm case adopts the shape of the Luminor 1950, with a unique bowl-shaped case middle, which is perhaps Panerai’s ideal case size, neither too big nor too small. It’s made from Carbotech, Panerai’s term for carbon fiber reinforced polymer, which is essentially a high-end plastic containing sheets of carbon fiber. fake luxury watches

Carbotech is formed by baking polymer and carbon fiber in an oven, resulting in a lightweight yet strong material that also has a wood grain appearance created by the constituent sheets. According to Panerai, the resulting case is 14% lighter than a similar titanium case.

Hidden beneath the solid titanium case back is the P.9200 movement, which is actually an ETA 2892-A2, topped with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module.

Easy to service and familiar, it’s one of the more affordable common chronographs found in brands like Breitling and Bell & Ross. Longines also uses a similar movement in its Heritage Classic, albeit with an in-house chronograph module. This movement is typically found in cheaper watches, which is one of the reasons why the PAM01219 is more expensive than it should be. perfect replica watches
