Eterna Skeleton Black Leather Strap Replica Watches UK

— Eterna presents the Skeleton timepiece, a limited edition of 3 versions of 160 pieces, honouring the brand’s 160th anniversary. black-dial-Replica-Watches

The history of watchmaking has proven that nothing is created from a tabula rasa, or a blank plate, and that memories and voices of models past always have their say. In this case, we make claim to the iconic Eterna Matic “Skeleton” from 1991 which in turn was inspired by designs from the 1950s.
Yet this tribute is a creation in its own right. The designer wanted to revive the creative act which has always guided human ingenuity: drawing by hand. This timepiece was created in its entirety on graph paper, in continuing with a tradition cherished by the company.

The case, classic in its round form, features clean and balanced proportions, with delicately convex sides and is endowed with cambered two-step lugs, creating an especially elegant profile. The sapphire crystal is set in a light metal return which emphasises the curved gentleness of the Swiss replica watches face. The winder is notched and decorated with the five-ball motif of the Eterna logo. The polished steel finish of the set complements the proportions of the case.

The movement stretches out over the entire surface of the dial:  winding mechanism, barrel, mechanisms, Swiss escapement, pendulum or regulator become a riddle and read like an abstract composition. The watchmaker plays with cut-outs and notched or perforated forms and adds a chromatic tone by contrasting the anthracite treatment (NAC), gold and silver-plated metal of machined parts and the rubies. A light and narrow bright bezel accompanies the hour markers. Two versions are available: one with twelve numbers in black matte, the other with simple metal points. Finally, the dauphine hands accentuate the set.

Developed by Eterna, the 3902M movement is a manual winding model; this provides for relatively small thickness of the case and considerably contributes to the volume balance of the watch (42 mm copy watches sale diameter and 10.5 mm thickness). It boasts a high power reserve of 65 hours.
The movement is derived from the Calibre 39, one of the greatest recent innovations of the company. No less than 88 different movement versions can be developed on the basis of this design. The basic calibre, in its most simple version with manual winding and fitted with minute and second hands, owes its versatility to a unique modular concept. Additional components and subassemblies can be integrated easily and efficiently.

The bracelet adds a sophisticated tone to the timepiece. Initially used for furniture elements by artisanal craftsmen, woven leather has been transposed into a bracelet, in the tradition of Italian tanners. Available in dark brown, black or light brown, it perfectly complements the materials and colours of the watch. Each colour version of the bracelet will be produced in a limited edition collection of 160 pieces.

Black Siwss Replica Watches – Ulysse Nardin FreakWing

Replica Watches UK Vip — As partner to the Artemis Racing team in the America’s Cup, Ulysse Nardin presents the new FreakWing, dedicated to the high-tech AC45 catamaran.

ulysse-nardin-Replica-Watches

Ulysse Nardin has adorned its new FreakWing with the most emblematic features of this high-tech catamaran: the upper bridge for the minutes is inspired by the internal structure of the rigid sail, while the texture of the rotating hours disc evokes the mesh net of the multihull. The bezel and case back are forged from carbon fiber, an element that is omnipresent in high-level sailing.

The Artemis Racing AC45 catamaran, the challenger of the Swedish Royal Yacht Club in the America’s Cup is designed like no other: its rigid sail in the shape of an aeroplane wing and foils allow it to reach up to 45 knots – more than 80 km/h. Ulysse Nardin’s Freak collection follows the same philosophy. For fifteen years, it has produced the most audacious innovations and the most daring architecture. This fake watch UK was the first to integrate a silicium escapement in 2001, a diamond version in 2005 and the Dual Ulysse escapement in the same year. Without a dial or hands, it is made in such a manner as to pivot its movement on itself. The lower bridge indicates the time, while the upper bridge–which carries the gear train, the paired balance spring and the escapement in silicium, exclusive to the Dual Ulysse escapement– displays the minutes.

The new FreakWing displays its Tourbillon in the center, the Artemis Racing logo on the back, and offers a highly readable hour and minute display, as well as the date at four o’clock. The Caliber UN-210 offers a 8-day power reserve and beats at 28,800 v/h.
It features the patented UlyChoc safety system, entirely conceived, developed and produced in-house, that replaces three traditional micro-elements with just one made from nickel. This solution avoids any slack or friction, allowing for perfect re-centering of the balance wheel in the event of an impact.

The FreakWing, which has a black DLC titanium case and a carbon-style strap with yellow stitching, is also phenomenal to use. In the absence of a crown, it is the upper and lower bezels, integrated into the move-ment, which perform the various functions: the first, secured by a safety clip between the lugs at 6 o’clock, can be used to set the hours and minutes when rotated clockwise, and to set the date when rotated anti-clockwise; the second, on the case back, is to wind the mainspring barrel.
The new FreakWing is a limited edition of 35 pieces.

Black Replica Montblanc Watches TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept

— Cheap Replica Montblanc presents the new a TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept, dedicated to its Brand Ambassador and the famous World Badminton Champion, Lin Dan.

montblanc-swiss-fake-watches

The new Montblanc TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept has been designed for Montblanc Ambassador and Chinese professional badminton player, Lin Dan, who completed the “Super Grand Slam”, having won all nine major titles in the badminton world, including Olympic Games, World Championships, World Cup, Asian Games and Asian Championships, becoming the first and only player to achieve this feat. Affectionately named “Super Dan”, Lin Dan became a Montblanc Ambassador for Mainland China in 2014 and has become the inspiration behind a number of innovative developments in the TimeWalker Collection.

A revolutionary case
Montblanc has concentrated its research and development on innovative and revolutionary materials for this timepiece. The Maison’s engineers have worked on a combination of black DLC titanium for the horns and ITR²®Kevlar®/Carbon elements for the middle case, case back, bezel and crown, making the new TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept one of the lightest mechanical timepieces in the world — a mere 14.88 grams.

ITR² (Innovative, Technical, Revolutionary Resin)  is a composite material charged with carbon nanotubes, which is extremely difficult to manufacture. It is eight times lighter than steel and four times lighter than titanium. Montblanc has combined it, for the first time, with Kevlar®/carbon, a highly resistant synthetic fibre, to reach utmost robustness, creating a world première in case-making materials.
The weightlessness of the 40 mm case construction is also reinforced by the horns made of titanium that have been skeletonized, satin-finished and treated with a black DLC coating for ultimate scratch resistance. The case has been equipped with an ITR²®Kevlar®/Carbon crown adorned with the Montblanc emblem. Mineral glass on both the dial and the case back of the timepiece also helps keep weight to the strict minimum.

The sporty and virile appearance of this ultra high-performance case is reinforced by alternating matt and satin-finishing as well as by the red circle made of ITR²® which echoes the colour of Lin Dan’s national flag. © Swiss Replica Montblanc UK

Details on the dial
A number of technical details increase the sportiness, weightlessness and performance of the TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept. The absence of a traditional dial immediately draws the eye into the movement with its handcrafted skeletonized components that hark back to the heritage of the 158-year-old Montblanc Manufacture in Villeret, formerly known as the Minerva Manufacture. Even the small seconds subdial at six o’clock has been skeletonized for additional lightness and transparency.
This anthracite subdial has been crafted out of super-light anodized aluminium and applied directly to the titanium mainplate, along with its elegant red-tipped Minerva arrow for increased legibility. Other specific details include an engraving at eight o’clock of the five stars from the five most important championships won of the Badminton’s Grand Slam, an engraving at three o’clock of the two stars from the two rounds of the Badminton’s Grand Slam won by Lin Dan, a minute track that has been etched directly onto the mainplate with black dots framed in grey for the five-minute markers and black anodized aluminium and skeletonized lance-shaped hands.

Inside the movement
The TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept is equipped with the new Montblanc manually-wound Calibre MB M62.48, featuring the hours, minutes, small seconds with a 50-hour power reserve. The Montblanc Calibre MB M62.48 is the modern-day interpretation of the historical Minerva movement that was designed in 1943.
This contemporary movement has been completely redesigned in terms of materials and finishing. The skeletonized main plate and the five bridges have all been crafted out of titanium. The bridges have been given a three-dimensional effect with alternating satin and grained finishes, while the other components have been hand-chamfered, hand-polished and hand-satin finished. The result is a highly contemporary, ultra-light movement of only 4.73 grams.

Best Replica Watches — When the elegance of the Tonda 1950 combines with the charm of a fully stone-set dial…

best-swiss-fake-watches

The Tonda 1950 embodies the very essence of the Parmigiani Fleurier style, with its streamlined profile and harmonious forms. In conceiving its new creation, the Manufacture’s aim was to underscore this absolute elegance. The result is a luxuous full stone-set model, available with a 39mm pink or white gold case.

Five different sizes were chosen for the round diamonds that adorn the dial. Their dimensions and position are the result of meticulous calculation, with the smallest at the centre, followed by larger ones, and more smaller ones outside bordering the indices. There is no sense of repetition, nor of an artificial or soulless setting. Instead, each diamond plays its part in a spectacular ensemble, in which the dial appears domed thanks to a beguiling trompe l’œil effect. The stones shimmer in a unique, almost violent way, such is the brilliance of the light reflected from them.
620 diamonds (totalling 2.495 carats) were used to decorate the dial, and 84 (totalling 0.6460 carats) for the bezel.

The Replica Watches VIP houses the PF701 automatic movement, powering the hours and minutes, with 42 hours of power reserve.

The Tonda 1950 Clarity with rose gold case is available with a bracelet with links of the same metal, for a highly sophisticated ensemble. The white gold version is paired with a very on-trend mother of pearl calfskin strap from its collection, to create the perfect cool chic look thanks to its subtle gloss.

Patek Philippe Replica Watches Annual Calendar Ref. 5396

VIP Replica Watches UK  — The 22nd model for the 20th anniversary

 

In 2016, fake Patek Philippe‘s patented Annual Calendar is celebrating its 20th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, the manufacture has launched a new model, subtly reworked and refined, that complements the 21 previous models that have been presented since 1996, not to mention the eclectic gold and platinum variations with different dial designs.
The new Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Ref. 5396 is available in 18K white gold with a dark gray sunburst dial and in 18K rose gold with a silvery white opaline dial.

Both models of the Ref. 5396 look familiar yet at the same time appear to be totally new. The first element is the shape of the case with its Calatrava personality. In the new model, the round of the case also merges with the strap lugs, and a smoothly polished bezel frames the dial. The sapphire-crystal glass is prominently cambered, endowing the watch with volume and a highly modern look.

The glass showcases a dial that features familiar elements that have been subtly refined and recombined. One of them is the in-line double aperture in the upper half of the dial that displays the day of the week on the left and the month on the right. The date display of the Ref. 5396 is positioned in a large aperture at 6 o’clock. Together with the double aperture, it frames the 24-hour subsidiary dial with the moon-phase display in the lower half of the dial to assure a visually balanced configuration. This layout is reminiscent of Patek Philippe perpetual calendars from the 1940s and 1950s, which regularly fetch top prices at auction.
The time is indicated in the crisply legible classic fashion: A peripheral circle of small gold minute markers frames the sculpted applied Breguet numerals in 18K gold. They harmonize gracefully with the Dauphine-style hour and minute hands as well as with the long, slender sweep seconds hand.

The heart of the new Ref. 5396 Annual Calendar is a self-winding mechanical movement that correctly displays the calendar information for an entire year. The date and month indications only need to be manually corrected once a year at the transition from February to March.
The moon-phase display requires even less attention. Thanks to its precise reduction wheel train, an adjustment by one day is needed only once every 122 years. Much of the finesse of the caliber 324 S QA LU 24H is visible through the sapphire-crystal case back: rhodiumed bridges with Geneva striping, round-chamfered edges and gold-filled engravings, a large rotor in 18K yellow gold with an engraved Calatrava cross, Geneva circular graining, perlage in the center, beveled flanks with Geneva snailing (colimaçons), and gleaming red bearing jewels. Rate accuracy is assured by Patek Philippe’s proprietary Gyromax® balance with the patented Spiromax® balance spring made of Silinvar®, a revolutionary derivative of silicon. As specified by the Patek Philippe Seal, rate deviations must range within -3 and +2 seconds per day. This exceeds all conventional chronometer benchmarks for mechanical watches.

One watch, two distinctively different versions
The two models of the new Patek Philippe Ref. 5396 Annual Calendar differ not only in terms of case and dial colors, they also project two distinctly different personalities. With its silvery white opaline dial and color-coordinated numerals, markers, and hands, the 18K rose gold version is the epitome of classic elegance. It is worn on a shiny chocolate brown alligator strap provided with an 18K rose-gold Calatrava fold-over clasp.

The 18K white-gold version has a very modern and technical look with a dark galvanic gray dial featuring a sunburst finish that produces a mystical luster. Its appeal is emphasized with applied Breguet numerals, markers and hands in 18K white gold. The matt black alligator strap with large square scales is secured with a Calatrava fold-over clasp in 18K white gold.

Hysek Introducing the 2016 Hysek Swiss replica watches collection

— With a launch calendar spread across the year, there is plenty to look forward to from Hysek in 2016 Gold Replica Watches.

hysek-baselworld-2016-nouveautes

With its own distinctive designs and a very high level of vertical integration Hysek likes to forge its own path, and the brand’s separate stand next to the Palace during Baselworld is the perfect example. But what can we expect from Hysek this year? The answer is something for everyone and in all shapes and sizes.

The most beautiful
Kalysta means “the most beautiful” in Greek and is the new Hysek ladies’ replica watches that has been three years in the making. It is the brand’s first jewellery watch and features a new in-house complication that dispenses with hands to display the time instead using a jumping-hour indication at 12 o’clock and a red sapphire that moves around the circumference of the dial for the minutes. This takes place against the background of a powdered-white dial with a floral engraving. A diamond-studded butterfly is applied at the centre of the dial and complements the 39mm case in red-gold with a snow setting of diamonds. This version of the Kalysta is powered by Hysek’s HW61 self-winding movement with 39 hours of power reserve. Other versions will be available with a quartz movement and different stone settings, from the full snow setting to a discreet single row of diamonds.

Decidedly square
The Furtif Skeleton Tourbillon has been completely redesigned to stay truer than ever to the brand’s desire to have nothing but the essential in its skeleton fake watches. The result is a 44mm square case dominated by two sapphire crystals to give a full view of the minimalist movement. But the quest for maximum visibility brings its own problems, since the bevelled crystals themselves are quite thick and extremely difficult to produce. Furthermore they have to be drilled through so that they can be screwed to the case and if that was not complicated enough, the lower crystal is curved to fit to the shape of the wrist. Imposing articulated lugs in the typical Hysek style ensure that this decidedly square watch nevertheless sits perfectly on the wrist.  This 30-piece limited edition uses the HW15 calibre with the brand’s characteristic diagonal going train arrangement, with the tourbillon top left and barrel housing bottom right.

Entering a new decade
Hysek’s Abyss collection starts its second decade with three brand new self-winding tourbillon models with big date, available in red gold, red gold and black PVD or titanium. The emphasis on these models is on transparency, with all the workings visible from the front and back, including the tourbillon at 10 o’clock and the two aluminium date discs at 2 o’clock. Those with a keen eye for detail will note the unusual power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock, which, like all Hysek hands, is produced in-house, but in this case simply because no other supplier was capable of producing this curved three-dimensional design that blends in perfectly with the intricately skeletonized movement components beneath it. Power comes from the self-winding Hysek HW 03A movement, which offers approximately 68 hours of power reserve. Each of the three models is limited to 88 pieces. A colourful new chronograph version is also available in the Abyss collection.

Abyss Automatic Tourbillon © Hysek Replica Watches

Last but not least, let’s not forget that Hysek is one of just a handful among hundreds of high-end replica watches brands that offers a central tourbillon. Those who couple it with a jumping hour are even fewer. Hysek promises a new version of this rare complication later this year…

Baume et Mercier Replica Watches Celebrating the Petite Promesse in New York City

— With a hint of spring in the air in New York City, Baume & Mercier celebrated the arrival of the Petite Promesse collection at a special luncheon for women at the Standard Penthouse last week.

baume-et-mercier-petite-promesse-new-york-launch

The room was awash with brilliant orange and blue accents and flowers on every table – emulating the stunning new double-wrap leather straps on the ultra feminine Petite Promesse Swiss replica watches. This is the new, smaller rendition of the highly successful Promesse collection the brand first unveiled to the world two years ago. The watch is a play on shapes, with a round inner dial within a subtle oval case. Varying degrees of diamonds on the bezel make the watch incredibly alluring.
The concept of Promesse – that promises matter and are important in our lives – has endeared many women around the world to the line.  Now, the new Petite Promesse, which had to be totally reconfigured to fit the smaller 22mm size with comfortable link bracelets and thins straps, promises to keep the demand rolling in.
The new 22mm size recalls the days when small watches, unusual shapes and elegant looks were all the rage. It also embraces the individualistic style of the 1970s with the three bold color choices. At once both delicate and fashion forward, the Petite Promesse collection features mother-of-pearl dials, diamond accents and a hidden crown. Setting is executed via a button on the caseback so that a crown does not mar the sleek elliptical case shape.

The Petite Promesse watches were first unveiled at the SIHH earlier this year, but are finally making their way to stores. They are offered with either a supple stainless steel link bracelet, a double wrap orange strap or a double-wrap blue strap. Each also comes with a single-wrap black strap. There are two versions offered, one with 22 diamonds on the case, and another with 44 diamonds.
For the event, Baume & Mercier creative Design and Product Director Alexandre Peraldi flew in from Switzerland and made a stunning presentation. With storyboards that showed the design inspiration of the first Promesse, to the drawings, renderings and inspiration for the new Petite Promesse, Peraldi ignited enthusiasm for the pieces.
He even handed each attendee a tiny metal box, within which was a presentation of some of the sketches of Petite Promesse and an actual 3-D-printed watch case. As Peraldi explains, it took hundreds of sketches to get to the point where the 3-dimensional case design could be printed for final examination.

“We have three objectives in the design, comfort, comfort and comfort. Comfort on the wrist … comfort on the eyes and comfort of the wallet. The mission in the Petite Promesse was to go from 34 and 36mm to 22mm – and when you change the size of a watch it is not easy,” says Peraldi. “You are not just making a smaller case, you have to change much more …  the lugs, the way the straps attach – you have to redesign from the neck down, so to speak. It is very difficult, especially for the bracelet version, to make it so supple and moveable.”
In fact, the Petite Promesse bracelet feels like silk against the wrist and wraps beautifully around. Similarly, the double-wrap straps in bright orange and blue are comfortable and eye-catching.  It would seem then, at affordable prices ranging from $2,450 to $3,300, that Baume  & Mercier accomplishes its goals of comfort in the new Petite Promesse.

Throughout the luncheon, Peraldi also traced the brand’s incredible history in women’s watches and lightheartedly discussed the difficulties involved in making women’s fake watches today. “Women want something classic but also different … women like to wear big men’s watches, but also want something feminine and elegant … women want wonderful color but love black … women like the ease of quartz but also like automatic, so it is a challenge.”
The luncheon capped with a florist teaching guests how to create an artistic floral arrangement – offering an array of blue and orange flowers to choose from in the making of their own take-home promise of spring.

Armin Strom Replica Watches Interview with Max Chilton

— World Replica Watches talks to the watch-mad racing driver who has been with Armin Strom since his Formula 1 days.

armin_strom_replica

Thanks to a strike by French air-traffic controllers, IndyCar driver Max Chilton had just three hours to fit in meetings at Armin Strom and whizz around Baselworld. He nevertheless set aside ten precious minutes for a chat with our editor-in-chief. Since then he has already beaten his initial objective of a top-ten placing to finish 7th in his second race of the IndyCar 2016 season at the Phoenix Grand Prix.

How did your partnership with Armin Strom come about?
I joined the Marussia Formula 1 team as a reserve driver at the end of 2012 and they were already working with Armin Strom. I’m just a Swiss replica watch nut and I love the attention to detail in watches. As a reserve driver I spent a lot of time sitting around, so I had plenty of time to talk to Claude (Editor’s note: Claude Geisler, Director of Armin Strom) and understand the brand better.

How close is your involvement with the brand?
I’m quite picky when it comes to watches and I can be quite blunt sometimes with my opinions. I have been to the factory a couple of times and I have been here in Basel a few times, too. I’m good friends with Claude so I will often message him to see what’s happening at the brand. I don’t think I would be able to do this with another brand.

How does IndyCar differ from Formula 1?
For someone who is not familiar with motorsport, if you put the IndyCar and a Formula 1 car next to each other you probably wouldn’t notice much difference. But Formula 1 is much more technology-driven, whereas IndyCar fits with the American tradition of big, powerful engines and just driving fast. One of the hardest things for me to get used to with the change is driving around oval circuits. You are doing 235 miles per hour on an average lap and you have to try to go through corners flat out. It’s easy to do this with downforce, but if you want to be faster than your competitors you need to take some of the downforce away and that’s when the car can start moving around. It’s very competitive because everyone has the same chassis and a choice of just two engines (Chevrolet or Honda) and you get the aerodynamics kit for that engine. It makes things a lot fairer than in Formula 1.

How different are the effects of g-forces compared with Formula 1?
It’s a lot different because we have five street circuits, five road courses and five ovals. Phoenix, for example, is a relatively short oval circuit with high banking, so we can pull over 5g in the turns. We can do a 2-mile long oval in 19 seconds and you are constantly turning, since the straights are only short. So for 11 of the 19 seconds you are pulling over 5g and you do that for 250 laps.

What is the social side of the racing like?
It is completely different from Formula 1 and there is a great camaraderie between drivers. My team mate Scott Dixon, who is four-times champion, and all other team members are all willing to help. In Formula 1 and European racing you are outwardly friendly with your team mate but he is essentially your rival.

 armin-strom-copy-watches

Edge Double Barrel. © Armin Strom Replica Watches

What do you think of the new Armin Strom Edge model?
I like to think that it is my love-child in a way. For a few years I have been telling Claude to come up with a bigger and more manly design. It’s only 3 millimeters bigger in diameter but it makes a big difference.

What do you go for generally in a watch?
I like it to be rare. I don’t like to get on a train and see someone who is wearing the same fake watches UK. Also, the art of a lovely watch is internal and you need to be able to see the detail. You can see through all Armin Strom models and I think the brand is a leader in this respect.
