The New Heritage Chronometrie Dual Time Vasco Da Gama 238 Limited Edition Watch from Montblanc

It was just over a year and a half ago that i had the distinct privilege of traveling with Montblanc replica watches to Capetown, South Africa. There, the brand celebrated the unveiling of an all new line that would not be seen by the world until SIHH of this year. That line, the Heritage, also had components in it that celebrated the pioneering and adventurous spirit of explorer Vasco da Gama.

Replica Montblanc Heritage Chronometrie Dual Time Vasco da Gama 238

Today, continuing in the spirit of precision engineering and navigation, Montblanc adds a new dimension to the Heritage Vasco da Gama line up: the Heritage Chronometrie Dual Time Vasco da Gama 238 Limited Edition. We have covered this Tag Heuer replica watches thoroughly earlier today in our column,but now we want to bring you just a few more details about the line and the making of the new caliber.

The dial is harmoniously balanced with night sky as seen from Southern Hemisphere and world map

Under the watchful eye of Jerome Lambert, global CEO of Montblanc, the company has moved forward with a deft blend of the Montblanc advanced watchmaking technology and the Villeret craftsmanship. Villeret, after all, is the haute horlogerie division of the brand. We also toured this facility and you can read an entire article about Villeret/Minerva here. The concept is to bring the ability and knowledge of the high-end Panerai replica of watchmaking and infuse the already strong main watch collection with elements that bring it to a new level.

Such elements include adding complication modules that have been developed in Villeret to Montblanc replica watches, and applying new techniques and technologies to watch dials that offer a cutting edge of sophistication. In the new watch, these factors are evident. The watch houses the Caliber MB 29.19 automatic Dual Time movement. The dual time complication (with 21 components) was developed by Montblanc’s top master watchmakers at Villeret and added to this Cartier fake watches to enable the wearer to see both  home time zone and  second time zone (local time) simultaneously off of a stunning dial. The dial features a  night sky disk with am/pm indications around it at 12:00. (The disk depicts the sky as seen in the Southern Hemisphere complete with the Southern Cross constellation.) Beneath the night-sky disk  is a beautiful  world map disk– that has been creating using new technology that seems to transform the flat disk to  a three-dimensional rendition.

The disks further underscore the concept of travel (as does the Dual Time zone function) and makes another connection between heritage and vision of the brand, and between the  vision and spirit of Vasco da Gama, whose travels in the late 1400’s led to the opening of a gateway of trade with India.  Again, for more details on the watch, visit our column on Forbes.com.  The Swiss replica watches is built in a limited edition of just 238 pieces — so numbered for the height of the lighthouse on Cape Point at the Cape of Good Hope, around which da Gama sailed in the 15th century in his efforts to open the seaway to India. The watch is expected to retail for approximately $6,750.

Rado Replica Watches UK- HyperChrome Brown Ceramic

Rado was one of the very the first replica watch brands to introduce use of ceramic, a material that offers exceptional scratch resistance, comfort (ceramic warms to the temperature of the wearer’s body) and beauty. Originally available only in black or white, high-tech ceramic is now available in a range of new colours.

The latest colour to enrich Rado’s offering is brown or, to make it sound more alluring, chocolate. With the light changing in the course of the day, the nuances of the surface also change, from dark to light hues.

This new ceramic colour will be initially used for three models.

Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy Replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso

As we enter part 4 of our “Vintage Eye” series, we come to yet another classic and innovative watch, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. First designed in 1931 for British Army polo players stationed in India, the watch with the now-iconic pivoting case quickly earned its status as the original sports cheap  replica watches combining purposed functionality with exceptional wearability. Today, there are countless variations on the original piece — from moon-phases to tourbillons, from dual-dialed cases to diamond-studded dials — but all of them remain faithful to the original vision of the watch: consumer-catered tailoring, and unmistakable style. Plainly put, the JLC Reverso has not only become a hallmark for the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand, but has acquired a “cool factor” that has enabled it to retain a strong following (disregarding a slight falloff during the Quartz Crisis) for more than 80 years.

JLC Reverso vintage 1931

The first watch we’ll take a look at this week is the Reverso Classique (Ref. 2508412). This piece is available in 10 different stylings, with this particular version sporting a stainless steel case and a clean, white dial strapped up on matte black crocodile leather. The watch distinguishes itself with unique blue “baton” hour and minute hands (the classic Reverso has traditionally not included seconds hands), a similar colored minutes counter, and what I find to be the most significant detail, the black Arabic numerals. The numerals, along with the rest of the graphics on the dial, seem to have a “human” quality to them: slight imperfections give the Jaeger-LeCoultre replica watches the appearance that it has lived a previous life before it made its way to your wrist. This particular reference uses the Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 846/1, and maintains the classic Reverso proportions, 38.5 mm x 23.1 mm for length and width, respectively. You will be able to find the Classique for around $5,650.

JLC Reverso Ref. 2508412

Despite my preference for vintage, I like this watch a great deal. It is certainly not a full-on replica of the tan-and-black, semi-minimalist Reverso of 1931, but instead combines a healthy amount of heritage with contemporary coolness. If anything, this is the much-improved Reverso that René-Alfred Chauvot (the watch’s original designer) could have hoped to create. It has a fully functioning, reversible case that is able to pivot at more than just a single corner of the cheap IWC replica watches (one of the original version’s main flaws), it has a much more water-resistant case and shock-absorbing movement (which makes sense for what was envisioned, originally, as a sports watch), and the dial has been able to fuse simplicity with soul, which is a rare feat in itself.

None of this is to imply that the Omega fake watches does not pay sufficient tribute to earlier models in its lineage: the case is still practically the same design as it has always been (with JLC refraining from brushing the steel, as many brands have chosen to do with their modern pieces), the smaller minutes counter is the same design as older, complete-dial versions (in what I’m positive was purposeful to maintain the “Art Deco” aesthetic), and the crocodile leather strap is of a higher quality, which no one will argue against. Jaeger-LeCoultre did a good job with this watch, and should be proud of where their hallmark stands today.

The next best TAG Heuers replica watches we’ll look at is the Reverso Duo (Ref. 2718410, below). This watch was released in 1994 as part of a larger ’90s push by JLC to develop more contemporarily designed pieces. Rather noticeably, this is quite a different watch than the Reverso Classique. With two different reversing dials, one white and one black, the Duo is able to transition quickly and simply from one time zone to another by means of a pusher above the crown. Both dials now include a round component at the six o’clock mark, and the piece is powered by a single movement, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 854/1.

Outside of these technicalities, the two different dials bear very little resemblance to one another; the black dial takes advantage of circular accents (and even includes a 24-hour indicator at the bottom), “eventail” hands, and fewer Arabic numerals for the hour markers. The white dial uses two-toned square accents (outside its seconds counter), sticks with the blue “baton” hands for the hour and minute, and uses many more numerals for the hours, adding to what I find to be a more classical look. The Duo is listed significantly higher than the Classique, at $9,150.

One of the greatest aspects of the original Reverso, outside of the flipping case and cool backstory, was the level of customization customers could add to their watches via caseback engravings. The Duo takes that same spirit of the Reverso and Jaeger-LeCoultre and transforms it into a memorable contemporary piece. The white dial and stainless-steel case pays homage to past Reversos, focusing on the numerals, “Art Deco” styling, and hands, while the black developed a more modern take, with its triple-toned, partly textured dial, circular accents, and sword-like “eventail” hands. The fake Cartier watches sale, in my opinion, represents very well what the brand, and the watch, strives to be in the modern day — with a 24-hour indicator or a seconds counter, with a white or black dial, with circle or square subdials —a timepiece that everyone who appreciates something unique and out-of-the-ordinary will enjoy.

As you can probably tell, I really like the Reverso collection overall. I feel it is one of the few examples of modern Patek Philippe replica watches that have been able to honor what it used to be decades ago, while continually breaking new ground in the present. It still hand winds when it could have fully transitioned to a quartz or mechanical automatic movement, it has kept basically to its original 1931 proportions, and even with both of these “limitations,” it continues to improve in its design through better movements, more versatile reversing cases, and modern manufacturing techniques. With all of that said, I still don’t wear either of these myself. Both pieces are relatively “long” (to be expected of rectangular watches), and I know I have neither the courage nor large enough wrists to pull it off. But who knows? Perhaps I’ll try on one of the smaller ladies’ model first and see if it grows on me.

Introducing the Cheap Replica MB&F Arachnophobia Table Clock

Are you a fan of horror/scary movies and a lover of horology?  The latest creation from MB&F replica watches will surely have you jumping for joy!  If you are scared to death of spiders then be warned!  Introducing the MB&F Arachnophobia Table Clock.

The inspiration for Arachnophobia comes from a giant spider sculpture called Maman that MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser had seen in both Geneva and Doha. Maman (mother in French), was created by Louise Bourgeois (1911 – 2010) in bronze, stainless steel, and marble. Measuring 9.27 x 8.91 x 10.24 metres (more than 30 x 33 feet), the monumental sculpture has been installed in a variety of locations around the world.

The MB&F Arachnophobia Table Clock was created in conjunction with premier Swiss replica Breitling watches clockmaker L’Epée.  L’Epee have collaborated with MB&F previously for the MB&F Starfleet Machine and Melchior clocks.

The clock  features a movement with an 8 day power reserve,  which has been utilised to re imagine it as the head and body of a big spider!

The hours and minutes are read on a high dome representing the spider’s body, with rotating curved hands indicating hours and minutes on a polished, central dome featuring MB&F’s signature numerals.  Like your favourite wrist Cartier replica watches the body (movement) and the legs of the clock features Côtes de Genève, anglage, polishing, sand-blasting, and circular and vertical satin finishing have been applied.

At either end of Arachnophobia’s time-displaying abdomen, important mechanical processes take place: the head houses the regulator with its oscillating balance wheel (and a set of jaws in case it gets peckish at night), while the other end contains the mainspring barrel, which powers the movement. Attached to the abdomen are eight, visually enticing legs articulated where they join the body by ball-and-socket joints. The legs can be rotated so that Arachnophobia can stand tall on a desk.  Another position provides an optical treat for fans of large arachnids: the front legs can be moved forward while the six others maintain the standing position, an interesting and alarming posture that says, look out!

It’s not just a table clock.  An innovative catch underneath the Omega replica watches movement hooks on to a stainless steel wall bracket.  It will make one hell of a standout wall clock!  The legs can be splayed out, giving the clock a size of 40.5 centimetres.  At a glance it will look like it is crawling around on your wall!  The black version’s legs are made of injection-moulded aluminium, which is hand-finished and lacquered black.

If the black version makes you want to jump out of your boots, there is a 18k gold plated model which takes away some of the fear factor but still has menace to it, with its contrasting black torso and gold legs.  The legs on the gold plated model are made from brass.

The clock will require winding after an 8 day period, so the owner will have to take a deep breath and get up close and personal replica watches sale with the underside of the belly of the spider to wind it and set the time.  In the words of MB&F: ” The owner will building a close relationship with it”.

The black version will retail for $15,300 Swiss Francs and the gold-plated version will retail for $17,500 Swiss Francs.
