Rolex Cellini Replica celebrate classic

Tag Heuer Carrera Replica Watches Brand Profile

In early September, I will be headed to Hong Kong for the 2014 Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair and the primary reason I am excited about it is that I expect to see a lot of bold new – not necessarily great, but undeniably new – designs and concepts. And while European and US-based shows do offer an in-depth look into what the big guns and important independents are about, it is important to look elsewhere too to find new and different sources of innovation. Despite a number of respectable exceptions, most major brands act slow when it comes to coming up with new concepts or value propositions – allowing the "new guys" in the business to steal some of the attention from the big guns. Today, we are here to discuss one of these positively surprising new brands (that will also be present at the Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair) and one of their key models: the ITAnano Phantom Carbon Automatic 49 watch.

On other models, you'll find additional materials, such as 18k gold and carbon fiber executed in countless ways. At 45.5mm wide, the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari was the first time Hublot materially upgraded its Big Bang case since its initial introduction around 2004. Hublot increased the size 1.5mm, up from 44mm wide, and overall added more masculinity while making it even more modern looking. A design like this is at the heart of a crossroads between two types of aesthetic preferences. There are those who like clean, restrained, classic lines, and there are those who prefer edgy, contemporary, and somewhat intense design. An Hublot, like anything else loud, is bound to call attention to itself, and thus equal parts compliment and complaint.

Compared to early analog G-Shock watches, pieces like the new Casio G-Shock MT-G are a breeze to use, but all the functions won't be as easy to use or precise to read as if the dial were digital. Also, there is a strict learning curve to understanding how its analog watches work for the first time - and I personally don't feel it is intuitive enough. Good thing that Casio drafts decent instructions; the PDF for the 5369 module movement is only eight pages long. It has helpful pictures too.

Release Special Edition IWC Aquatimer Replica Watches

Around the planet, in Hong Kong, watch ads litter the streets, buses, and billboards. It is difficult to travel more than a few steps in any commercial area and remove yourself from a line-of-sight view with a poster or sign marketing a watch maker – often with a regional or international celebrity wearing the product. In a dark, dirty, and ill-smelling alley behind the main thoroughfare, the walls are lined with evenly spaced posters for some of the world's top luxury watch makers.

With the openness of a skeletonized dial, the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Squelette may very well feel a bit larger. Parmigiani has dutifully skeletonized the in-house made caliber PF705 in a modern and attractive manner, and the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 is now a competitor to many versions of the Piaget Altiplano that have skeletonized movements and dials, as well as certain Cartier models. Contemporary trends, when it comes to skeletonizing a dial, tend to result in polished industrial looks that eschew more traditional decoration for evenly brushed surfaces, extra-thin beveled and polished edges, and darker tones such as gray and black. Also, monochrome looks (more or less) are in, versus the more colorful palettes we sometimes see.

Time enduring gift of love IWC Pilot Replica elegant presentation

If you are the type of person who likes small models and miniatures, then you'll appreciate the concept here. Tool watch guys looking for strictly functional items to tell them the time will not understand this type of piece at all. In its own way, this is the ultimate watch for certain types of nerds - and isn't that what boutique luxury watches are all about? Given the extremely limited set of watches Ralf Tech is going to make, I am sure they will find the fewer than a dozen required buyers.

So if you think about it, what George Bamford is suggesting is that the ultimate luxury is to combine what he believes is the world's most important watch company with a personalized wearing experience. He wants people to know he is wearing a Rolex, and he also wants them to know he isn't wearing a standard Rolex. For George, that is the goal of his products. And if you are like George, you'll probably find a lot to love in his timepieces.

Collector's Corner: "I want variation in my Speedmaster watches"

While Chopard has put forth a commendable effort in designing this beautiful and mechanically interesting tribute to the Scheufele family, don't expect to see one in the wild. Chopard is producing just 50 pieces of the Chopard L.U.C 1963 Chronograph, and the ,440 asking price, while certainly a massive sum of money, can be considered a good value among competition from Glashütte Original, A. Lange and Söhne, Vacheron Constantin – and even Patek. Competition aside, I think the Chopard L.U.C 1963 Chronograph is one of Chopard's most attractive chronographs and we're excited to see what other watches could house the L.U.C 03.07-L movement in the future. chopard.com

Arkady G. from Tel Aviv, Israel asks:

The curve on the caseback was the most important in terms of wear, and it did make the watch comfortable. I was able to snug the strap tight enough that the heart rate was able to do its job, without it feeling like I had a chunk of metal digging into my wrist. Speaking of the strap, that was an odd choice here.

Another difficult aspect to the baseplate was the cam paths (highlighted green), which allow the minute needle to extend or retract based on where it is along the minute dial. Under each wing of the rotor dial is a small guide rod, which fits into the cam path and is connected to the telescopic minute hand. As the rotor turns, the cam path will adjust the length of the hand accordingly. This complex curvature was something that needed to be calculated, which gave me an even greater reason to pay attention in my calculus courses. The path curvature took some time to perfect, but after adjusting a few dimensions, it was working beautifully in the motion analysis of Solidworks.

While it will be the first time for me to attend, 2014 marks the third year when aBlogtoWatch.com will be present at the Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair. Held between the 3rd and 7th of September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, it is a massive fair that hosts nearly 800 exhibitors and a total of nearly twenty thousand retailers, manufacturers, suppliers, and journalists each year in an effort to create an opportunity where just about any and all participants of the watch industry can acquire new connections and establish new business relationships. In this year's pre-show article, let's take a brief look back at what the previous years' events had to offer and also at what we expect to see this year, at the largest "timepiece event" in the world.

Jaquet Droz will produce the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantieme watch in both 18k red gold and white gold versions, as well as in both 39mm wide and 43mm wide cases. The thickness of each version is virtually the same at just over 12mm. Jaquet Droz is popular in many Asian markets, which is why the 39mm wide version is available in addition to the existing 43mm wide version. Given the starkness of the dial I find that the larger size of the case offers a nice statement on the wrist. It is really nice to wear a Jaquet Droz if you appreciate their penchant for dial cleanliness.

Furthermore, as supercars are often appreciated by watch lovers, it is of no surprise that Bugatti has a relationship with a high-end Swiss watch brand. Over the past decade, Parmigiani has worked with Bugatti to produce dual-branded timepieces such as the recent Aerolithe Flyback Chronograph and the-avant garde Bugatti Super Sport watch. Very special watches for very special cars.

The Nixie wearable drone is controlled by your phone and, interestingly enough, started out as a different type of wearable - something that you put on your face like glasses. I agree that putting it on your wrist as a wearable band makes a lot more sense. If Nixie wins the Intel Make It Wearable competition, they will get another 0,000 to make their product a reality... and perhaps people can then start working on flying timepieces.

The Hamilton Khaki Pilot Day Date also has a 42mm wide steel case, and in this case, contains a Swiss ETA 2834-2 automatic movement that offers the time with a day and date complication. The watch retails for a reasonable 5 on the steel bracelet as it was worn in the movie. Keep an eye out for more Hamilton watches in movies, and if you haven't yet seen Interstellar, I highly recommend it. Just don't expect to understand everything that is going on in full, and if you are a physicist prepare to relax your logic and education just a bit. hamiltonwatch.com

Uniform Wares 351 Series 351/RG-01 Watch Review

Watches, and especially higher-end ones are sometimes sold with certain certificate issued by third parties – the most common being the COSC chronometer certificate (Rolex is COSC's biggest customer).  COSC Chronometer certification is about accuracy and performance, and others  a testament to the origin, quality of execution, or reliability of the timepiece in question. In recent years, we have seen Omega debut a number of very exciting developments concerning its proprietary movements – with the latest news being that its calibers bearing the "Master" designation in their name are highly anti-magnetic without necessitating a soft iron shield. We have discussed the Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement in greater detail in our article about the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial (hands-on here).

The cases of the Junghans Max Bill men's collection are all 38mm, which is a nice size without being too small or too large, especially for this watch, which I think fits in the casual-to-dress spectrum. I think I would be just as at home wearing it with an unstructured jacket, as I would in jeans and a t-shirt. The straps are calfskin with a stainless steel buckle to match the stainless steel case. The crystals are plexi, hearkening back to the time when Max Bill first collaborated with Junghans. Many watch companies used plexiglass up until the late '70s/early '80s.
