Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Fagliano hands-on

Ninety years old. Do you know what else can make 90 years old in 221 years of our Lord? Willie Mays. Empire State Building. The Stars and Stripes (the official national anthem of the United States). The same 90 is Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso—an indisputable classic in the important watch dictionary of the last century. With so many, many watch fans who travel frequently say that every series needs a Reverso, right in the box, next to Speedmaster and Submariner. Now, I usually try to avoid the “starter pack” mentality, which tends to tell many new collectors who may not know it at all, but when it comes to this art deco formal watch legend, I happily tend to support With the idea of ​​a hive. Why? Because Reverso-to borrow contemporary parlance-is definitely a slap in the face.

Introduced in 1931, Reverso is one of the rare watches born out of sports needs-you may already know the story. If you are a newcomer, in short, Reverso’s unique hinged dial can be flipped to protect the delicate crystal from the wrong polo mallet swing. Because of this, even in all its sophisticated Art Deco styles, even in 18k rose gold, the heavily decorated modern Reverso still has the strange sturdiness of a tool watch-as if it is still an object for a specific purpose, and It’s not just another evening accessory like most traditional formal watches.

It seems that every 5 or 10 years, we will launch a series of limited edition Reversos for the most recent anniversary. Of course, this is not Jaeger-LeCoultre‘s most primitive modus operandi, but at the same time, anniversaries often produce the most wearable or the most interesting and desirable interpretations-and this Duoface Fagliano version comes from the Tribute series, To commemorate Reverso’s 90 years old is certainly not inferior. The packaging features a gorgeous red sunburst dial that contrasts sharply with the rose gold case and hour markers, and is equipped with a textured burgundy leather strap handmade by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s manufacturing partner Casa Fagliano, famous for Casa Fagliano Argentine boots manufacturer, has produced five generations since then, it was founded in 1832 by itself.

Generally speaking, suede leather is the perfect texture complement and can help to decorate overly elegant designs. It adds some canvas here that is particularly good, helping to balance the obvious “precious” of decorative elements and contrast with all golden frames. The bright red dial has a rough, masculine texture. Speaking of masculinity, this particular design is larger than the most traditional Reverso, 47 mm high and more than 28 mm wide. Now, if you are new to the world of Reverso, it has traditionally been a very small watch-and it usually takes some time to get used to it. This slightly larger case (in part due to its hidden complexity) helps bridge the gap between the obvious dressing of the original and makes it more in line with the style that modern collectors might prefer.

However, for the Reverso form, the fun begins when you unlock the case hinge and turn it over. The earliest Reversos-and now the most faithful replica of the modern “Monoface” found in the Tribute series, with only a solid metal back-are also polo mallet countermeasures. But here, we not only have another beautifully textured eggshell dial, but also the time display in 12 and 24 hour formats. The 854A/2 movement, called Duoface, powers this dual chronograph complication. It was specially developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre in 1994 for Reverso, allowing the wearer to independently set either side (using a flush with the top) The tiny hidden slider caseband above 12:00) or show two different time zones, Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Fagliano

This is not the first time Jaeger-LeCoultre has borrowed a modern Tribute to refer to its Duoface treatment-it has stainless steel, rose gold and blue dials to choose from, but this is the first time we have seen it in red, and the use is inspired by polo boots A stronger strap configuration of its own. All in all, it is probably the most natural and practical way to implement a double-sided watch, and it has injected a new modern utility into Reverso that has not been fully seen since it patrolled polo courts. I really like its rose gold, it produces a particularly chic canvas on which red and white dials can be set. Although I have this type of strap now, my curiosity makes me wonder what it would look like if JLC stripped the Reverso further to its sturdy sports core.

Panerai Luminor Chrono Goldtech Blu Notte PAM 1111

Panerai replica broke the gold after the introduction of the steel automatic chronograph at the Geneva Watch and Miracle Exhibition.

Panerai’s main initiative at the Geneva Watch and Miracle Exhibition is to adopt a two-pronged approach to sustainable development. On the one hand, it released Submersible eLAB-ID, a concept watch made from 98.6% recycled materials, and a list of open source suppliers that other watchmakers can use to make their own recycled watches. They support this concept through a commercial release, which is based on the recycling-based Luminor Marina eSteel. These are just two things they prepared for the Geneva Show of Virtual Clocks and Miracles. There is also a new reduced version of the Bronzo-now a very wear-resistant 42 mm-and a series of automatic steel chronographs, debuting the new P.9200 automatic chronograph movement.

Panerai launched the chronograph in 2021. This complication can be traced back to the original Mare Nostrum and continues to this week’s Watches & Wonders live performance in Shanghai (April 14-18). Although the first P.6200 models were made of stainless steel and equipped with a closed back, the watch we have today is made of Panerai’s proprietary Goldtech alloy with a sapphire case back-despite its wave pattern Partially occluded.

Luminor Chrono Goldtech Blu Notte or “Blue Night” has a diameter of 44 mm. With the trademarked Panerai Luminor crown protector and a set of sturdy lugs, this is an impressive watch, just as you would expect from Panerai Luminor.

It’s not necessary to swim with an 18-carat gold chronograph, but it’s worth noting that the new PAM 1111 is water-resistant to 50 meters, so it’s best to stay on deck or on land. The steel version of the new P.9200 automatic chronograph that Panerai has launched so far has a closed back cover (about half a millimeter thick), providing a more sturdy packaging for those who really want to wet the replica men watch. When PAM 1111 is sold with a dark blue alligator strap that echoes the dial, Panerai uses a rubber strap.

You have undoubtedly noticed that the rose gold in the Blu Notte case is Panerai’s proprietary Goldtech, a special alloy that contains a higher proportion of copper and platinum. In addition to providing deeper and deeper colors, it also has fading resistance, which is an annoying problem for watchmakers who use rose gold. Several brands have their own alloys. Considering the color fastness, the most famous is Rolex, which is appropriately named Everose Gold.

Zenith Chronomaster Original Diamond Edition

Low-key
It has been 72 years since the evergreen jazz standard Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend was first released. Everyone knows this song, but it turns out that despite the huge improvement in today’s perception of women, diamonds are still girls’ best friends.

This was evident in the first physical “Meet the Dreamers” event in Madrid, where guests were invited to discover a group of accomplished and outspoken women called ZENITH DREAMHERS.

To commemorate this moment, Zenith has launched two Chronomaster Original diamond watches, equipped with a multi-color mother-of-pearl dial or a taupe three-color dial.

Obviously, as far as ladies like sparkling stones, nothing has changed. The new Chronomaster Original diamond watch features an iconic three-color dial that is absolutely eye-catching.

38 mm-the standard size of Zenith Chronomaster-this watch is perfect for women who like large watches, or men who like gorgeous diamond-encrusted timepieces.

Both models use a stainless steel case. The first version uses a three-color dial made entirely of mother-of-pearl, instead of the traditional gray and blue chronograph dial. The dial is decorated with four different colors of mother-of-pearl; the dial is decorated with white mother-of-pearl, the chronograph dial uses two shades of blue, and the constant second hand uses gray mother-of-pearl.

The second version uses three taupe tones in the iconic three-color layout of the satin white dial.

For true glitter, just look at the lugs. Still adhering to the rimless structure of Chronomaster Original, 56 small diamonds are cleverly mounted on all four lugs, adding a lot of pop and sparkle when worn. Both dials are inlaid with 9 diamonds as hour markers, which also makes time more precious.

Under the gleaming appearance, Zenith Chronomaster Original is still a master achievement in timekeeping. This watch has a 60-hour power reserve and is powered by the most respected latest generation El Primero 3600 at a frequency of 5Hz (36’000 VpH). Its performance has been improved, and it can provide 1/10 second timing function.

Both versions of Chronomaster Original are equipped with light blue or taupe soft calfskin straps with the same color stitching to match the color of their respective dials.

Founded in 2020, ZENITH DREAMHERS is a platform for independent and inspirational women from all walks of life. It inspires women to share their voices and passions with like-minded women around the world.

Members of the press must spend the night with some dreamers in private villas and participate in panel discussions on women in the 21st century. buy luxury watches

On the agenda is the need to move towards more inclusiveness and equal rights. The Zenith DREAMHERS who participated in the first physical event via social media live broadcast included contemporary artist Teresa Juevas, chef Amandine Chaignot, professional ballerina Precious Adams, fashion retail pioneer Ghizlan Guenez, EXTREME E race driver Christine Giampaoli Zonca, skincare entrepreneur Laura Noltemeyer and former Miss Swiss and medical expert Laetitia Guarino.

The watch world is still mainly a male-dominated field, but this incident is also a subtle and earth-shaking change for Zenith. DREAMHERS also admired the first ever series DEFY Midnight that is completely oriented towards women in Zenith. The most popular feature of this series is the quick strap change mechanism. It allows the wearer to quickly switch between the included steel bracelet and rubber or fabric strap without tools.

Maurice Lacroix

New Ambassador-Mike Azato

Maurice Lacroix welcomes director and photographer Mayk Azzato to ML Crew. In his widely acclaimed and award-winning photography and film, his work features world-renowned celebrities, and he combines German precision with Italian creativity. He recently joined the Maurice Lacroix team and found himself getting along well with other extremely talented people from the fields of art, culture and sports. They all have a special affinity for the Maurice Lacroix brand.

“You can become the best artist with the most creative designs, but if you can’t execute them, this project will not succeed!”

Mayk Azzato is a photographer and director. He was born in Italy and now lives in Frankfurt. Over the past few decades, he has enjoyed an unprecedented career in the film and photography industry. After being forced to abandon his career as a professional athlete due to serious injuries in his youth, he took advantage of his good connections and a better aesthetic to start acting as an actor.

Every experience is precious and helps him further improve his skills. AAA replica watches

Figures and still lifes are his specialty. “You have to grasp the spirit of the times and create interesting ideas to inspire inspiration.” Azato has worked with Kevin Costner in films such as “The Arrival” as a director and producer He made his own movies, featuring famous personalities such as Toni Garrn. His latest work “My Name is Josie” is an exciting thriller that will premiere at the Kennedy Villa in Frankfurt on October 5, 2021, with many celebrities in attendance. This short artistic film tells the story of a young woman from Hollywood. Appropriately, Mayk Azzato managed to get Hollywood actors like Michael Bowen (the rescued Jiang Ge) and Noah Segan (Star Wars-Episode VIII: The Last Jedi) to join the film. He made the German actress Josefine König (Josefine König) the leading actress, and she also became famous as a rising star in Hollywood. “My Name is Josie” has won 30 international awards, including the 2020 Los Angeles Film Awards for best thriller and the 2019 New York Film Awards for best thriller.

“The best time is always”
“We have known Mayk for a long time and we are very happy that he is now a member of ML Crew,” said Stéphane Waser, managing director of Maurice Lacroix. “Just like us, he is always looking for inspiration, reinventing himself again and again-just as our mantra’success is a journey, not a destination’,” Waser continued. The artist also saw many similarities between his work and Maurice Lacroix’s work. “The product must be attractive. The combination of design, aesthetics, and color is extremely important. Due to social media, styles are changing faster and faster, and classics must be reinterpreted.” For Mayk, time is a limited resource. Time is a luxury. The time he spent on travel is the most precious to him. In keeping with his urban lifestyle, Mayk likes to travel to Los Angeles.

“Maurice Lacroix is ​​a modern luxury brand that keeps pace with the times. I like this very much.” Mayk’s favorite watch is the AIKON Automatic Chronograph Sprint. The watch is subtle and still exudes something. He doesn’t like digital watches, because for him, watches are a piece of jewelry. He prefers to wear sneakers and watches-this is a reflection of a man’s lifestyle. Therefore, he has not only watches but also 250 pairs of sneakers in his wardrobe.

Franck Muller: bigger than life

Franck Muller embraces bold dimensions and adventurous spirit with its ever-growing Vanguard collection.

Franck Muller launched its Cintrée Curvex case in 1992 in the early days of the current mechanical watchmaking renaissance. Soon after, as the Cintrée Curvex became one of the most well-known watch cases in modern times, the obvious curves of tonneau-shaped cases can be found on wrists all over the world.

More than 20 years later, in 2013, Franck Muller launched the Vanguard series as the sports successor to the Cintrée Curvex legacy. Vanguard follows the curved outline of its predecessor, but it enlarges the original proportions of the 44 mm wide and nearly 54 mm high case. The bold design without apology perfectly calibrates the otherworldly personality.

Obvious difference

One of the most unconventional members of the Vanguard family also happens to be the latest model-the Vanguard Gravity Skeleton Tourbillon. Franck Muller, launched this year, makes full use of the extra space of the case to highlight the oversized tourbillon, turning the dial into a dynamic sculpture that cannot be ignored.

In the Gravity Skeleton, the avant-garde design of the tourbillon includes a balance wheel and hairspring that are not aligned with the center axis of the tourbillon frame. Instead, they are off-center, which makes the mechanism rotate every 60 seconds, and therefore has a unique elliptical orbit.

The engineering skills required to perfect this advanced design are impressive, but the minimalist approach further enhances the technological achievements. Using open space as a design element helps to focus attention on the inner beauty of the skeleton movement. Its bridges have been greatly reduced, leaving behind the thin metal arms that make up the hand-wound movement.

The bridge plate and titanium case of Gravity Skeleton Tourbillon are coated with black PVD ​​, so it has a hidden appearance. But what really energizes the design is the contrast between the dark elements and the colorful tourbillon frame and matching hands, which come in a variety of colors.

Understand all angles

Franck Muller continues to explore his fascination with the skeleton movement through another member of the Vanguard family: the 7-day power reserve skeleton watch. The company has previously released a 7-day power reserve in its Cintrée Curvex and round case. In these versions, the design draws inspiration from traditional watchmaking techniques, especially the organic and gorgeous appearance of the hollow plywood. However, in Vanguard, the design uses an industrial edge, juxtaposing the sharp angles and straight lines of the splint to guide the viewer’s eyes to the center of the watch. Round elements such as balance wheels and barrels are gathered near the center to soften the appearance. wholesale watches

The hand-wound movement of this watch is manufactured in-house and neatly tucked into the iconic Vanguard case. The case is available in five different materials: white gold, rose gold, stainless steel, carbon and titanium.

Perspective style

Franck Muller launched the Grande Date this year, ushering in another watch in the Vanguard series. The movement is not hollowed out, but because there is no dial, it is still very conspicuous. This exposes the parts of the automatic movement, which are decorated with the traditional Côtes de Genève pattern and have a beautiful appearance. As a bonus, the open design also highlights the numbered wheels that make up the nominal complications of the watch.

You can also see the internal operation of the chronograph. When you press the button on the side of the case to stop, start and reset the timer function, the internal operation becomes active. When it is running, the chronograph’s subdial at 3 o’clock counts the minutes, while the red-tip central hand is on the chronograph seconds hand.

Growing family

In addition to these professional timepieces, the Vanguard series also includes a series of men’s and women’s watches, including everything from basic chronograph models to tourbillons.

There is no doubt that there is nothing to be shy about in this version of Lady Vanguard Color Dreams. The sparkling rose gold case is set with rows of diamonds to set off the white dial, which is decorated with undulating guilloches. The raised and elongated Arabic numerals-the logo of the Vanguard series-present bright and cheerful rainbow colors, which Franck Muller calls Color Dreams. A perfect model for easy portability, the unique appearance is driven by a quartz movement, no winding is required, and it can run continuously for more than a year. The Lady Vanguard series uses a case made of stainless steel, white gold or rose gold.

The newest member of the Vanguard family is also one of its most well-known members. Because the wind rose design is integrated into each dial, the yacht series adopts a lively nautical style. Part of the inspiration for this navy pattern came from the Franco-Moulin Yacht, which was specially made by the Italian Ocean Group in 2015 for the watch company.

The Vanguard Yachting series contains a variety of chronograph complications, from the date and chronograph to the tourbillon. Because Franck Muller places great emphasis on diversity, each model is available in stainless steel, rose gold or white gold cases.

It is often said that destiny favors brave people. This can easily become the slogan of Vanguard, this is a watch series that is not afraid to use the power of individuality.

De Bethune DB28 Steel Wheels Sapphire Tourbillon Watch

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of today’s iconic De Bethune DB28 series, this energetic Swiss ultra-high-end watchmaker has released the De Bethune DB28 Steel Wheels Sapphire Tourbillon, which is limited to 10 pieces — it’s so beautiful. In addition to being obsessed with precisely cutting small parts and finishing them with excellent results, what I admire most about De Bethune is its indifference to norms or conventions. Although there are many “rebels” in the field of high-end luxury watches, when it comes to serious watch rebellion, few can match De Bethune.

When I talk about “don’t care”, I mean doing things, such as putting “steel” in the title of the watch, where steel accounts for a relatively small proportion of the watch’s overall metal or material composition. Or just avoid important small details in the press release, such as specifying how big the watch is (43 mm wide and 9.8 mm thick). I’m pretty sure De Bethune will not worry about the size of the watch. They made the case to suit their movements. As far as the DB28 is concerned, one of the reasons it is so famous is the hinged lugs that help it wrap around the package. This “comfort lug” system is actually a re-improvement of the DB28 Steel Wheels Sapphire Tourbillon, indicating that it is different from the DB28 case that De Bethune debuted ten years ago.

The case is made of highly polished titanium (which actually looks like steel), which is where De Bethune does a good job. They also have flame blue titanium, and you can see the parts on the dial, such as the outer ring, around the barrel, and the tourbillon frame. The concept of Steel Wheels is De Benthune’s view of skeletalization, which is quite elegant here. We see a lot of inspiration from contemporary luxury boat design here-which means it is elegant, sporty and practical. This is how to do futurism on your wrist. It looks good, but also technically attractive.

For some reasons, this DB28 is not a traditional hollow watch. The first reason is that it is not so “hollow”. The splints and wheels of the DB2019V5 movement are transparent, but still rigid in structure. Precisely cut transparent and blue sapphire crystals help to create this interesting effect, and the multi-layered depth of the dial makes this effect even more pleasing. The complete design of the designer’s hour and minute hands and the unique two-tone titanium DB28 hands ensure legibility. The manual winding movement consists of 272 parts and is equipped with a special 30-second tourbillon system.

The tourbillon is also a “high-beat” tourbillon, running at a frequency of 5 Hz (36,000 bph). This is the same as Zenith El Primero. The balance wheel itself is made of titanium and silicon, which is obviously the lightest De Bethune has ever made, weighing only 0.0001 grams! The entire tourbillon cage assembly itself weighs only 0.18 grams). Similarly, according to De Bethune, this is an import record for this category. Seeing the tourbillon intuitively in a watch like this is a more vivid experience, because it moves at twice the speed of a standard tourbillon, spinning a full circle every 30 seconds.

Where does the steel in the “Steel Wheel Sapphire Tourbillon Watch” come from? Well, as the product name implies, the wheels of the movement are mainly made of steel. Why is this a big deal? Although many watch cases are made of steel, steel is a very rare metal that can be used to make watch movements. Steel is a relatively challenging metal because it is very hard. For many machining purposes, brass is more preferred. Brass is relatively strong, but it is also much softer to machine. Most metal watch parts are brass. Steel can be polished beautifully, but it is also very strong. Considering that brass may be too fragile, even with a sapphire crystal holder, it may be the metal of choice for this thin structure.

Can you understand why watch nerds and design lovers love such luxury men watch? The movement inside the DB28 is like an elegant coach, but the movement is designed to run like an exotic supercar. Although this style is not suitable for everyone, no one can really deny the great advantages of this kind of creation, or easily question the value proposition of the price.

Purnell

The brand was founded by Jonathan Purnell in 2006, and its history can be traced back to 1918, when Jonathon’s grandfather Cecil Purnell was injured in the First World War. Cecil was injured while fighting for Britain and was taken care of in Besançon, the home of French watchmaking. There, he became interested in Abraham-Louis Breguet’s work-the tourbillon. Decades later, Jonathan founded his own brand, dedicated to creating tourbillon timepieces in memory of his grandfather.

Fourteen years later, Purnell created 13 exclusive tourbillon movements and collaborated with Eric Coudray, one of the world’s greatest modern watchmakers. One of Coudray’s greatest achievements was the creation of the fastest three-axis tourbillon, which was named “Spherion”. The first Spherion appeared in Purnell’s Escape series, which debuted in 2017. Today, Purnell has become one of the most unique high-end watchmaking brands in the world.

Purnell-Escape II

Inspired by the work of his grandfather Cecil, a British watchmaker who was passionate about tourbillon watches, Jonathan Purnell founded a company named after this family in 2006 and claimed to only produce tourbillons watch.

After developing 13 tourbillon movements since its establishment, Purnell began to collaborate with the Gaïa Award-winning watchmaker Eric Coudray in 2016. Among other experience, he also worked on the development of the famous Master Gyrotourbillon 1 and Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2. Made a contribution. His tenure at Jaeger-LeCoultre.

The result of this cooperation and two years of development is the Escape II, the world’s first timepiece with two “Spherions”, the name the brand chose for its high-speed three-axis tourbillon.best price watches

Spherion consists of three cages. The inner frame containing the balance wheel rotates every 8 seconds-very fast compared to the traditional tourbillon. The secondary cage rotates every 16 seconds, while the outer cage only needs to rotate once every 30 seconds. Due to this architecture, Spherion rotates on multiple axes, and its balance wheel trajectory draws a sphere. Each Spherion is made of titanium and weighs only 0.79562 grams.

Thanks to the clever differential system, the two Spherion cages rotate in opposite directions in exactly the same path. The skeleton movement of the Escape II consists of 386 parts, beats at a frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vph), and weighs only 15.7 grams.

It is not difficult to imagine that such a complex and dynamic mechanism requires a lot of energy, which is provided by 6 springs assembled in 4 parallel barrels (four springs are superimposed in two barrels). The power reserve is 32 hours and is indicated by the suspended moving cone mainspring sensor visible at 9 o’clock.

The majestic case has a diameter of 48 mm and a thickness of 19 mm. It uses a special one-piece sapphire crystal to show the structure of the movement and two Spherions in motion.

Purnell Escape II replica is available in special editions in grade 5 titanium, black DLC grade 5 titanium or rose gold. A variety of methods can be used to customize hand-made finishes, including anodizing, hydrography, and painting.

MB&F-Legacy Machine Perpetual in Palladium

MB&F’s Legacy Machine Perpetual was first launched in 2015 and has since been made of various metals, including red gold, platinum, white gold, titanium and gold.

This year, the Swiss brand launched Legacy Machine Perpetual made of palladium. This new limited edition of 25 pieces is made of palladium 950, a rare lightweight platinum group metal.

The 44mm x 17.5mm case sets off the aquamarine sunray dial, the tone of which varies between light blue, green and gray.

This new Palladium version integrates new ergonomic corrector buttons at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock. MB&F copy was first launched in 2020 with the sporty Legacy Machine Perpetual EVO.

The Legacy Machine Perpetual is powered by a fully integrated 581 component movement. Its suspended 14 mm balance wheel vibrates at 18,000 vibrations per hour on the dial side, allowing the wearer to appreciate this fascinating spectacle.

The hour and minute subdial is located at 12 o’clock, between the elegant arches of the balance wheel. Other indications are: day of the week at 3 o’clock, power reserve indicator at 4 o’clock, month at 6 o’clock, retrograde leap year indicator at 7 o’clock, and date at 9 o’clock. fake watches form china

This hand-wound movement is equipped with polished bevels, Côtes de Genève and hand-engraved top finishes. It is equipped with a double barrel and provides a 72-hour power reserve.

Unlike the traditional perpetual calendar mechanism that uses a 31-day month as the default month and “removes” the extra dates in months with fewer days, Legacy Machine Perpetual uses a mechanical processor that utilizes the default 28-day month and adds extra days as necessary. This means that there is always an accurate number of days in each month; there is no fast forward or skip over extra days.

Other advantages of this state-of-the-art movement are that it is equipped with a dedicated quick setting button to simplify leap year adjustment, and to avoid possible mechanical problems, the adjuster button is automatically deactivated when the calendar changes. best replica watch site

Girard Perregaux launches three fly bridge tourbillon

Reimagine the icon.

The three-gold bridge tourbillon was invented in 1860 and is synonymous with fake Girard Perregaux. Its unique and impressive design is still the watchmaker’s flagship movement a century and a half later. Since the modern revival in 1981, the three-bridge tourbillon has continued to evolve to keep up with contemporary tastes, resulting in variants like Neo Bridges, which have smooth arched bridges.

Earlier this year, GP Girard-Perregaux introduced the latest three-bridge, which completely eliminated the bottom plate and produced a floating transparent movement. Now, the brand has finally launched a luxury version of this watch, more eye-catching in rose gold and black-the three fly bridge tourbillon.

My opinion on the recent iteration of Three Bridges is lukewarm, because I find that redesigned designs often blur the original identity of the movement-these designs try to be modern but not fully realized-but the latest version has changed my mind. Flying Bridges is clean and streamlined, creating a magnificent, unobstructed view of the mechanical structure, and enhancing the mechanical structure by choosing the correct color and structure.

From a technical point of view, the fly bridge is an interesting watch. The components that make up the timing system—the barrel, the gear train, and the tourbillon adjuster—are arranged linearly and vertically, just like the historic three bridges. But now they are supported by three horizontal bridges on both sides of the movement. The bridges are fixed to the case instead of the traditional bottom plate, making the movement ventilated and transparent.

The only shortcoming of the watch is not inherent-the fly bridge design is often iterated, resulting in countless versions that reduce the prominence and appeal of complex functions. This makes it difficult to keep track of which patterns are in the typical version, which is a problem because most collectors want only three bridges in a collection. replica watches online

Jinfeiqiao
Thanks to the skeleton movement, the movement structure is clear at a glance. The movement is wound by a micro-rotor hidden under the uppermost bridge coaxial with the barrel, and its gear train is vertical from the barrel to the six o’clock position, where the tourbillon is located.

The hour and minute hands and the center wheel below are held by a second bridge, while the tourbillon is supported by a third bridge.

The execution of the bridge makes this movement unique. Unlike the earlier version of the three bridges, which used large arrow-shaped bridges modeled on 19th century pocket watches, the new bridges are stylish and aerodynamic. breitling avenger replica watches

It is worth noting that the curvature and height of the bridge plate is made obvious by the two-color finish: the bridge plate on the front is made of pure gold, but painted in matte black, and then the edges are manually chamfered with gentian sticks to achieve exposure The gold below. This gives the splint a golden outline, and the angle of the mirror finish brings out the elegance and quality of the movement.

Despite its modern aesthetics, the balance wheel assembly is a traditional affair-it is free spring, with mass and balance screws, connected to an upper spiral hairspring.

However, the bridges on the back take a simpler form—they are also painted in black, but are made of titanium instead of gold, and have no angles for manual inlays. In other words, the overall processing of the movement is well done, as evidenced by the bevels on the wheel spokes, which include some inward and outward angles.

Bovet Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two Reimagined

Bovet has now released a new version of Chapter 2 of their Virtuoso VII in a reimagined form. It expresses watchmaking craftsmanship, decorative arts, mechanical originality and innovation in some rather interesting ways.

We conducted a thorough and detailed review of the Bovet Fleurier Tourbillon Virtuoso III Perpetual Calendar, and VII is built on the display, making Bovet an interesting brand to consider. Although we are sure that Virtuoso I and II must have appeared at some point, Bovet’s website starts with III.

The series always showcases the manufacturer’s craftsmanship, so the name of the series is no coincidence. It was specifically chosen to reflect the intentions of brand owner Pascal Raffy. In particular, both the series and Bovet watches have this flaunting commercial atmosphere, where traditional watchmaking art meets sophistication and brilliance. We think it makes interesting watches.

With the advent of Chapter 2, the 2020 version uses an 18k red gold case. And this new version of Reimagined is released with a black DLC titanium case, and uses a lot of SuperLumiNova to create a huge luminous effect. This new version offers four dial options, each option is limited to 8 pieces, and the total version size is 32.

The Calibre 17BM06-GD movement is still maintained. This is not a bad thing, because the movement is spectacular. It is full of interesting functions in terms of clocks. The list includes a double-sided flying tourbillon, a 10-day power reserve and a large date indicator, and a unique differential keyless winding system. Most importantly, this movement has always and continues to feature the finest art.

We asked to view and photograph the redesigned Virtuoso VII Chapter 2, but still had to find that this is an extremely limited version. If we can do this, we will update.

Adjacent to the original, the latest Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two is a brand new, modern and sporty timepiece while maintaining excellent watchmaking craftsmanship. This is a follow-up to the theme of the House of Bovey-using interesting materials, colors, treatments and displays to modernize these complex timepieces, while emphasizing the handmade nature of the brand’s internal production process.

Speaking of in-house production, the Bovet 1822 process benefited from an incredible three-year partnership with Rolls-Royce, resulting in a pair of beautiful custom timepieces and a stern instrument panel mounting system.

Just as participating in Formula One has injected a small amount of technology into the car manufacturer’s passenger cars, the research, development and testing of these cars (including crash tests) Boat Tail watches have produced engineering and manufacturing achievements that affect all aspects of Bovet’s production. All series have benefited from this kind of technology and technical exchange, including the Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two brand.

The Super-LumiNova coated dial is not just the hour markers or markers, but the entire dial surface, which is available in gold, blue, salmon, turquoise, green and purple. Each color is limited to eight (8) watches. After charging, these dials actually pop up, displaying brightness in a unique way. When you first see the transition of these watches from light to dark, you will be surprised and happy. Now you can see the light of Bovet-Super-LumiNova under a completely different light. discount swiss watches

In the past few years, House of BOVET has incorporated Super-LumiNova luminous materials into its watches in a unique way-on the lunar surface of the moon phase, on various sundial series-but this is the first Super-LumiNova This powerful application on the dial truly reflects modernity.

The grade 5 titanium case of these new Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two watches has been treated with bright black DLC to create a “dark side” that contrasts with the bright and vivid dial colors.
