Breguet The British clients under the spell of Breguet

— Recently, the Breguet creations and two art crafts were highlighted at an event in the boutique of the retailer Lumbers in Leicester.

The timepieces of the Rolex Replica watchmaking Manufacture were presented to fifty privileged clients. During the evening, they also had the opportunity to meet a master engraver on movements and a master rose-enginer,  who specially came for the occasion, and revealed their extensive luxury- Swiss Replica Watches UK craft expertise. A very rare talent that makes every Breguet  an exceptional piece.

The hallmark of the Breguet House remains the timeless style of its timepieces. Every detail is carefully designed and based on the savoir-faire of some thirty or so specialized artisans. Engravers, rose-enginer or bevellers, all excel in their respective discipline.

Richard Mille Tourbillon RM 19-01 Natalie Portman

— Natalie Portman unveils the first Rolex Replica Watches UK designed and created together with Richard Mille, taking the spider as a symbol.

Worldwide partner of the brand since 2011, the American actress is a multi-talented woman of high accomplishments, having graduated from Harvard in psychology in addition to her roles at the theater and on screen.

She supports various charitable associations such as the Foundation for International Community Assistance (FINCA), a non-profit organization offering solutions for microcredit in developing countries, and Free the Children, a charity defending the rights of children worldwide.

For her first collaboration with Richard Mille, Natalie Portman set her mind on an image combining strong associations and complex undertones expressed by a diamond studded and encrusted tracery based upon the image of a spider. Abundant myths and stories about spiders are found in every civilization, often in relation to feminine energy and creativity. A mistress of fate and weaver of reality, the spider is the symbol of the soul but also freedom. The thread of the spider is a support in spiritual development.

The RM19-01 manual winding tourbillon caliber is assembled around a black rhodium-plated, 18K white gold black sapphire set baseplate, a first for Richard Mille. The spider within the movement, also in 18K white gold and set with diamonds, forms an integral part of the movement, with the abdomen of the spider actually supporting the bridges of the tourbillon, and its legs supporting the two winding barrels.

This aesthetic achievement was only possible after a long and difficult machining process followed by many hours of hand polishing, finishing and the guiding eye of the Rolex Replica watchmaker working in harmony with the centuries old skills of the jewel setter.

Available in 20 pieces worldwide, this novel ladies’ creation will be worn by Natalie Portman at several events worldwide.

Taking the spider web as its motif, the baseplate is then decorated and set with hundreds of black sapphires.

Roger Dubuis Goodbye cuckoo, #Helloextraordinary

— Roger Dubuis Replica Watches UK created a digital campaign “Goodbye cuckoo, #Helloextraordinary” that acts as a countdown until the upcoming SIHH14!

Roger Dubuis' Cuckoo Clock

Sci-fi movie screenplay or childhood fairy-tale gone wrong? Neither: it is instead the latest flight of fancy into the incredible, extraordinary universe of Roger Dubuis. A universe in which fantastic definitely rhymes with iconoclastic. A universe in which the brand rips apart established codes, the better to reinterpret them. An approach annually showcased on its booth at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH). A spirit epitomised in the renaissance of its iconic Hommage collection that will be the star of the show at this next edition. This time, however, Roger Dubuis gives a whole new meaning to the end-of-year saying “ring out the old, ring in the new”, by inviting one and all to share in a unique social media experience leading well beyond December 31st, right the way through to January 20th 2014 Rolex Replica Watches – and beyond!

For a whole month running from December 20th through to January 19th – and thus figuratively spanning a period that includes an ending and a fresh beginning – a brand-new video clip is available at the exact same time each day, instilling a sense of anticipation and ensuring a regular rendezvous. All the videos share the theme spelled out in the website – www.goodbyecuckoo.com – , complete with a humorous catch line that transcends the theme to evoke a wider symbolism, and the revelation of the Roger Dubuis booth at SIHH on January 20th, 9 a.m.

IWC The new Aquatimer collection presented by Christian Knoop, Creative Director

— Together with Christian Knoop, let’s have a look at the new Aquatimer Replica Watches UK to be released in January 2014!

“I come from a small German town, Kleve, near the Dutch border and I remember my childhood as very creative with my liberal-minded parents. At least it was before my three siblings were born. When the family grew from three to six, my crayon drawings on wallpaper and floors were frowned upon,” IWC Creative Director Christian Knoop tells me over burgers at the quaint The Dylan Hotel in Amsterdam where IWC have their Northern Europe headquarters. It is also the city where Knoop spent two years designing industrial products and overseeing brand strategy for a handful of companies including Philips Design in Amsterdam.

I am sitting with Knoop to have a look at the all-new Aquatimer models that are the talking pieces from IWC in 2014. But before we go through these watches I want to know about his five years with the famed Swiss Rolex Replica watch manufacturer.

“I was headhunted for the job and in the beginning I wasn’t told the brand. I was just informed about a watch company that was looking for a creative person with a 360-degree vision for the brand as whole and not just the Replica Watches UK. I was of course very excited when I realised that IWC was the mystery brand.”

Creative Director of everything IWC

Even if Knoop was excited to know that IWC wanted him to work for them, it was not a longstanding interest in watches that made him decide to take the job. “I don’t even recall ever sketching a single watch prior to that. My interest in watches has developed throughout the years of working with the talented team of 15 designers that take care of the actual watch design as well as graphic design and trade marketing. I oversee the whole process. From watches to brochures and boutique interiors. I like to design watches, but I don’t see myself a watch designer,” Knoop claims, even though he likes to refer to Ferdinand E. Porsche as the inspiration for the new Aquatimer range. “I see the 1982 Porsche Design Ocean 2000 as an iconic timepiece,” says Christian with a smile revealing genuine affection for the legendary designer who introduced the first titanium watches produced by IWC.

The Aquatimer models in 2014 do not really look anything like the illustrious Ocean 2000, nor is any of the new range made of titanium. Nevertheless, Knoop uses this watch as a reference. “I think the Ocean 2000 had a pure design and perfect aesthetics.”

Double bezel

It is however the very first IWC Aquatimer from 1967 that is the true reference for the creation of the new Aquatimer, as this original diver’s Replica Watches featured an inner turning bezel to read decompression times when diving. While the new Aquatimer does indeed feature this inner bezel, it also has an outer bezel which admittedly might be a nod to the aforementioned Ocean 2000. But how does this double-bezel system work?

 

SafeDive system

IWC call their new internal/external bezel feature the SafeDive system. The mechanism combines the advantages of an internal rotating bezel, which engages in steps of precisely one minute and protects the mechanism against dirt and seawater, with the ease of use of an external rotating bezel that can be easily handled by a diver wearing gloves or with cold fingers. A sliding clutch system connects the two rings by transmitting the rotation of the external bezel to the inside of the case and the internal bezel.

This SafeDive system is truly a fascinating new feature, a first for me at least. But on top of this novel device, the 2014 Aquatimer models are also equipped with a new and improved bracelet quick-change system designed and developed by IWC. Although the current collection also offers a quick-change system, the latter was developed and patented by Jaeger-LeCoultre.

The underwater catwalk

In 2014 the Aquatimer also offer a spectacular bronze chronograph version, the Chronograph Edition “Expedition Charles Darwin”. This is a first for the Swiss Replica Watches manufacturer, which has never used this material before. It is not a limited edition, meaning fans of this popular material do not need to panic.

Alongside the bronze chronograph model, the 2014 Aquatimer collection offers the Chronograph Edition “50 Years Science for Galapagos” limited to 500 pieces, the Chronograph Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau”, the Chronograph in stainless steel with a black or silver-plated dial and the Automatic in stainless steel with black or silver-plated dial, complemented by a matching black rubber strap or stainless steel bracelet.

For dedicated IWC fans of haute horlogerie, the Aquatimer collection released in 2014 also offers a spectacular 49-millimetre Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month which is limited to only 50 pieces. This is actually the biggest watch offered by IWC since the original B-Uhr aka Big Pilot was launched in 1940.

Avid divers will also be pleased to know that IWC is releasing the Aquatimer

Deep Three in titanium (Ref. IW355701) with depth gauge as well as the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 that pays tribute not only to the Ocean 2000, but also to the tradition of truly deep-diving Breitling Replica Watches from IWC.

The new IWC Aquatimer will be presented during the SIHH watch show in Geneva from January 20th to 24th 2014.

Best Fake Breguet UK Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon 5377

— Pre-released at Baselworld 2013, this extra-thin automatic timepiece returns to centre-stage in a platinum version.

This exceptionally extra-thin Replica Watches is distinguished by an off-centre tourbillon with a carriage in titanium which formulation is protected by several patents. Its movement – the new calibre 581DR – incorporates a balance spring in silicon – lauded for its anti-magnetic properties – and an escapement made of silicon and anti-magnetic steel. These technical characteristics enable it to beat at 4Hz, a high frequency for a Tourbillon. Thanks to the patented “high-energy” barrel, the reference 5377 provides 90 hours of running time.

To keep the height of the movement down to 3mm in a 7mm thick case, Breguet’s watchmakers have placed the bi-directional platinum winding rotor on the periphery of the movement. This technical prowess makes this automatic Tourbillon one of the world’s thinnest.

Stylistically, the dial of this 42mm platinum Rolex Replica watch is decorated with four engine-turned patterns: 1) a hobnail pattern for the hours and minutes chapter; 2) a barleycorn surround; 3) a straight chevron pattern for the power-reserve indicator at 8:30; 4) cross-hatching to outline each feature. A blue sapphire at the centre of the Tourbillon bridge draws the eye down from the hands.
