Zenith Pilot Type 20 Rescue and Pilot Type 20 Rescue Chronograph

Earlier this year at LMVH in Dubai, Zenith put the brand’s aviation heritage into the spotlight with the launch of two new Hyundai models. The Pilot Type 20 Rescue (Ref. 03.2434.679/20.I010) and Pilot Type 20 Rescue Chronograph (Ref. 03.2434.4069/20.I010) feature 45mm brushed stainless steel cases and textured sunray grey dials. They come on a black vintage calfskin strap with a titanium pin buckle.

The Pilot Type 20 Rescue (Ref. 03.2434.679/20.I010) is inspired by the Zenith 1900s style retro aeronautical models of the Pilot Type 20 series. It is powered by the self-winding self-winding calibre Elite 679, with a large dial showing the hours, minutes and seconds.

The Pilot Type 20 Rescue Chronograph (Ref. 03.2434.4069/20.I010) is powered by an automatic column-wheel chronograph movement, El Primero 4069, which also offers a 50-hour power reserve. The watch features a central chronograph hand, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small second at 9 o’clock. Hours and minutes are centrally located.

Both models have a power reserve of around 50 hours and are water resistant to 10 ATM. In addition, the domed sapphire crystal of both watches is anti-reflective treatment. The dial features rhodium-plated gold-faced hands, which, like the Arabic numerals, are coated with Super-LumiNova. Another feature of the watch is the inclusion of the Zenith Flight Instruments logo, which is engraved on the casebacks of both models. These watches also feature oversized crowns typical of pilot watches.

Zenith Chronomaster Revival ‘Manufacture Edition’

While the El Primero Chronograph celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019, Zenith is introducing another revival of the original El Primero. That said, the Zenith Chronomaster Revival “Manufacture Edition” showcases a dial never seen before – until now.

According to Zenith, a box of old dials from the legendary El Primero A386 was found in the manufacturer’s attic. Unexpectedly, the box contained a prototype dial with three different shades of blue subdials, but it never made it to the market. Now, Zenith is using the long-forgotten dial in the new manufacturing version.

The Zenith Chronomaster Revival ‘Manufacture Edition’ case is an exact replica of the original 1969 A386 case – 38mm and stainless steel. Additionally, the rediscovered dial features three blue subdials with faceted, Super-LumiNova coated hour markers and hands. Also, the tachymeter scale is located around the edge. In addition, the date display is located between 4 and 5 o’clock, while the small seconds are displayed at 6 o’clock.

Notably, the automatic movement El Primero 400 powers the Zenith Chronomaster Revival ‘Manufacture Edition’, delivering a high frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour (5 Hz), as well as a column-wheel chronograph. Furthermore, it consists of 326 pieces and has a power reserve of about 50 hours.

Finally, the Zenith Chronomaster Revival “Manufacture Edition” watch comes with a blue alligator leather strap.

Maurice Lacroix presents four new Pontos watches

This may be out of a sense of neglect, or it may just be a natural progression of the release cycle, but as part of Geneva Watch Days, Le Méridien has just announced four new watches from its Pontos collection. I say “ignore” because Aikon seems to have been in the spotlight lately. I get it – Aikon is modern and gorgeous, and it’s available in all the bright, fun colors. But what about traditional and classic looks? That’s what fake Maurice Lacroix Pontos is all about, and it’s been that way since its launch in 2000, which is why it’s been pushed aside in the name of “fun”. no longer! The new Pontos S Chronograph and two new Pontos Day Date models (including limited editions) are available now in two colors. While the Maurice Lacroix Pontos collection is the flag-bearer for the brand’s heritage watch design, these watches are anything but ordinary.

First up is the new colorway for the Pontos Day Date. The 41mm stainless steel case is only 11mm thick, features the unique stepped lugs that define the Pontos collection, and comes with a set of wide, slightly curved crown guards – if nothing else, the case should wobble as it is something beautiful. Powered by an ML143 (based on a Sellita SW220), the dial has a 12 o’clock date and a 6 o’clock date (just me, or is the font on the day wheel very small? Why is it in a serif font when everything else is so clean and modern) ?). Despite the pull-out crown, the watch is still water resistant to 100 meters. There are really only two new things on this model, both on the dial. The dial still features the same applied indexes, recessed sections that emerge from the day and date windows, and perfectly proportioned lumen hands, but is now available in a lovely blue color. New to the Pontos Day Date line, though, is the contrasting sandblasted chapter ring, which is as concave as the rest. The watch comes with a blue nylon strap with a butterfly deployment clasp, a steel bracelet, or both. While nothing revolutionary here, with the popularity of blue, this new dial is easily the one that will probably outsell all other Pontos Day Dates.

The Pontos Day Date Khaki Limited Edition adds some character to the Pontos Day Date collection, featuring a black DLC case and a dark green sunburst dial with a day and date wheel; the same specs and design as the other new Pontos Day Dates (see Date and Date font, isn’t it better?). Maybe the brand just wasn’t brave enough to commit to a black DLC bracelet, but as is the case with the black watch, this one comes with a strap: quick-release green nylon with leather backing and a matching black DLC butterfly deployment clasp. Morris Maurice Lacroix describes the watch as a “cityscape,” and while I tend to roll my eyes to see such a copy, in this case, I think it’s correct. There’s an undeniably tactical cool-chic (not a word you often hear together), and the case’s matte black finish is balanced against the more traditional case silhouette and radiant green dial to create tension.

Completing the Pontos release is the new Pontos S chronograph. Available with blue or panda dials, the new S designation brings a sportier look with a scratch-resistant ceramic tachymeter bezel, extra lumens, and a new dial layout and design. The 43mm wide case features the signature Pontos stepped lugs, push-button pushers, 100m water resistance and 15mm thickness, which is reasonable for an automatic ML112 movement (believed to be an ETA 7750, via display bottom cover visible). The movement is a change to the Pontos chrono, so replace the 6 o’clock date on the old Pontos chrono with a 3 o’clock date display. The chronograph’s subdials are also more modern, with a contrasting red accent that complements the 10-second marker on the inner chapter ring. To further its practicality, the new S Chronograph features a Super-LumiNova coating on the hour chart and hands. Both styles are available with a nylon strap with butterfly clasp, a stainless steel bracelet, or both. This version is in line with many others introduced in recent years, such as the Zenith Chronomaster, which uses a ceramic bezel for a sportier feel. Despite the existing Aikon models, this fills the void for Maurice Lacroix, eventually adding a sports chronograph to the catalog.

Everyone here has something, doesn’t they? While chronographs may feel a little too familiar, the stepped Pontos case allows them to do their thing. But the real draw is the day of the week, which is complemented by the depth and contrast of the dial, the two great colors, and the well-balanced 12- and 6-day date displays. Here, I’m starting to think that Maurice Lacroix has put all its marbles in the Aikon basket and dropped the rest of its collection – it turns out that the brand is just slowing us down. buying replica watches

Forget green, purple is the rising color

Blue is the new black, green is the new blue… Purple can take the lead.

Trends come and go. What saddens us in fashion is that nothing is set in stone and everything will end, but trends are cycles that come back sooner or later. Some trends come and go quickly, while others last longer. The watch industry is no stranger to these cycles. Vintage style cheap watches are something from the early 2010s, but they are still very successful. Oversized timepieces, on the other hand, are expected to be forgotten. The same can be observed when it comes to color. About 10 to 15 years ago, blue became very popular. “Blue is the new black” is everywhere, with watch brands releasing dozens of blue styles. More recently, say about 3 years ago, green was the hottest trend in the industry, and if it doesn’t look like it’s really slowing down, there may be a new trend growing. Pink and mostly purple dials are on the rise, and it could be the new hot color for watches in the coming months.

Keep in mind that, at the moment, we are not at the stage where we can ensure that purple is actually a real trend. We’ve recently seen a dozen new models with this purple dial, which makes us think there could be growth here. But another possibility is that we could see the same effect with the Tiffany blue watch… This trend basically continued for about 3 months, after Patek Philippe and the New York-based jeweler announced their collaboration watch after. And now, it doesn’t seem to exist anymore. As for purple dials, time will tell if the trend matures enough to be as green as green dials, but for now, we’ve listed 5 cool models that will get you thinking about this bold color.

BATAVI Architects TONY PURPLE
Let’s start with the light and fun of the watch from the young micro-brand Batavi. It’s always interesting to see what these young, smaller brands are doing, as they don’t have the same constraints and can be more creative (though not always successful) than the big mainstream brands. The first watch we’ve seen this year with a purple dial is the brand’s sporty-chic style with an integrated bracelet, the Architect. Released alongside a Tiffany-inspired version, this deep purple, sunray brushed and textured dial really makes a difference. Instead, it does create a cool mix of styles thanks to its rather rigid and streamlined watch. For the rest; a fairly compact one-piece stainless steel case, overall pleasing finish, automatic Miyota movement, bracelet with quick-change system, and a price of only 419 euros for your guilty pleasure moments. There are plenty of reasons to take a closer look at this Batavi architect Tony Purple.

39mm Stainless Steel Case – Sapphire Crystal, 100M Water Resistance – Purple Dial, Sunray Brushed Finish, Geometric Pattern and Application Markings with Polished Bevels – Miyota Caliber 9039, Automatic, 4 Hz, 44 Hours Power Reserve – All in one style steel bracelet.

MORITZ GROSSMANN Central Second Hand Purple
We’re now turning to the other end of the spectrum with a high-end watch with superlative finishes and an overall classic design. But anyone who has followed Moritz Grossmann for a few years knows that the brand can also be creative (sometimes too much…) As one of the most classic styles in the collection, the Moritz Grossmann Central Seconds was originally released in blue or salmon. However, it’s also a watch that’s more modern and focused on everyday vibes than the Hamatic. At first, the idea of ​​a purple dial on this strictly German watch might have seemed odd, if not out of place. But judging by the results, it does add a certain amount of boldness without being ostentatious. The result is casual and cool. When you turn the watch over, it’s still this beautifully decorated, hand-wound in-house calibre 100.11 with German silver plate and high-end finishing.

41mm Stainless Steel Case – Sapphire Crystal, 30M Water Resistance – Purple Dial, Sunray Brushed Treatment, White Luminous Numbers and Hands – Caliber 100.11, Internal Manual Winding, 2.5 Hz, 42 Hours Power Reserve – Black Kudu Leather Strap .

NOMOS CLUB CAMPUS BLUE PURPLE
It’s no surprise to see Nomos being part of a series of colorful dials. While making fairly minimalistic watches, the German brand has long shown a bold side in color, such as the orange dial. The brand builds on its most accessible and casual collection, Club Campus, and recently launched two bold new versions; one with a loud but appealing pink dial, and the other with a softer Blue-violet tones. The matte finish, not overly saturated, is a dial that adds a bit of fun compared to the classic blue without being too raw and difficult to wear. The watch is available in 36mm or 38.5mm sizes (the latter is the one you can see below) and is powered by the brand’s hand-wound Alpha movement. Plus, it comes with a “California” dial, which is overall high quality at a reasonable price.

36mm or 38.5mm Stainless Steel Case – Sapphire Crystal, 100m Water Resistance – ​​California Matte Blue-Purple Dial, Arabic Numerals on Top and Roman Numerals on Bottom, Full Luminous – Nomos Alpha Movement, Manual Winding House, 3Hz, 43 Hours of Power Storage – Anthracite velvet leather.

Seiko Gradient Purple KING SEIKO SPB291
Purple doesn’t necessarily mean dark, but it can also refer to a lighter shade of lilac… which is the color Seiko chose for its latest version of the King Seiko reissue SPB291. Clearly, the brand has gone for a funky touch! Based on the range of silver, black, green or burgundy dials launched earlier this year, it now comes with a gradient lilac dial…not the most traditional style, and from a brand that’s usually quite conservative. However, the results are surprisingly attractive, with their own personality and novel approach. The watch is otherwise identical, with a compact 37mm case, a rather elegant retro design, a cool seven-link bracelet (which also includes a light grey leather strap) and an in-house movement with a 70-hour power reserve. …..but obviously, it’s the dial that makes this version so special.

37mm Stainless Steel Case – Sapphire Crystal, 100M Water Resistance – Light Purple Dial, Sunray Brushed and Gradient Effect, Applied Faceted Markers and Hands – Seiko Calibre 6R31, Internal, Automatic, 3Hz, 70 Hours Power Reserve – Seven Links Included Steel bracelet and light grey leather strap.

TAG Heuer Monaco Purple Limited Edition
Last but not least, the Monaco Purple Limited Edition. I explored the watch extensively in a dedicated article discussing the relevance or not of this dial on this iconic watch. But as a kid of the late 1960s/early 1970s, the Monaco was a watch that could handle color with ease. The green model is already attractive, and this new purple version, if it’s not for everyone, is sure to pack some personality. Finally, at least for me, this purple dial really works for Monaco, and I even think it would be cooler with a purple strap. It’s a bold choice that must be assumed, but not so outrageous. The rest of the watch – proportions, case, movement – is the same as the classic blue version.

39mm x 39mm Stainless Steel Case – Sapphire Crystal, 100M Water Resistance – Purple Dial, Sunray Brushed Black Subdials – Calibre Heuer 02, Internal Automatic Integrated Chronograph, 4Hz, 80 Hours Power Reserve – Black Alligator with Black Stitching and purple lining.

Greubel Forsey – GMT Sport

Today, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey present their most sports-focused watch to date, the GMT Sport.

Featuring a lightweight, ultra-strong profiled titanium case, oval bezel and integrated lugs, the new timepiece is water-resistant to 100 meters/330 feet and powered by a new movement. 45mm diameter, case height 15.70mm, excluding sapphire crystal or 17.80mm.

To create an ergonomic case, Greubel Forsey designed an unusual shape that is round when viewed from above, but arched and oval when viewed from other angles.

Unique to this watch is the large satin-finished bezel, with the Greubel Forsey fake values ​​engraved in relief on the outer bevel.

Hours and minutes are indicated by concentric skeletonized hands whose curvilinear contours follow the curvature of the case and movement. To improve visibility in darker environments, the triangular tips of the arrow-shaped hands and the markings on the minute ring are treated with a luminous coating.

The secondary dial between 10 and 11 o’clock combines the small seconds on a large rotating disc and a second time zone display with hands.

Below it, the Earth’s rotating globe, seen from above the North Pole, completes each full counterclockwise rotation around its axis in 24 hours. Surrounded by a sapphire crystal ring, the 24-hour scale shows local time at all longitudes, as well as day or night (light/dark).

Two buttons on the left side of the case are used to adjust the GMT function: the first button selects the second time zone, and the other button is used to synchronize local time with global time.

At 3 o’clock we find a sector indicating the 72-hour chronograph power reserve, secured by two coaxial barrels in series. The power reserve differential is subtly engraved with Greubel Forsey values.

The 24-second tourbillon at 1 o’clock is held in place by a perfectly polished tourbillon bridge with a black-finish opening.

Greubel Forsey’s third fundamental invention in the field of tourbillons (after the double tourbillon 30° and the quadruple tourbillon) stands out with its 25° inclined cage completing a full revolution in 24 seconds. The higher speed combined with the special inclination of the cage improves the timekeeping performance of the single tourbillon system with minimal movement height. fashion fake watches

The rotating tourbillon cage with its adjustment mechanism is made up of 88 parts and weighs only 0.38 grams!

On the back side of the GMT Sport, the outer and central rings form the sapphire city disc, providing UTC Universal Time and Daylight Saving Time for 24 cities in the main time zones. The disc distinguishes those time zones (on a light background) where daylight saving time applies from other time zones (on a dark background).

All 435 components of this hand-wound 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations per hour) movement, including the titanium bridges and bridges, adhere to the most exacting craftsmanship standards at Greubel Forsey.

The limited edition Greubel Forsey GMT Sport comes with a black or blue rubber strap that is secured to the wrist with a titanium folding clasp.

Zenith Chronomaster Sport launched

For Zenith, the Swiss luxury watch brand founded in 1865, the goal was to step into the future of watchmaking. The brand’s latest watch is another push in that direction. Just this week, they announced the new Zenith Chronomaster Sport. This watch collection has the impressive features you would expect from this world-renowned brand. It is the culmination of more than five decades of mastery in sports chronographs.

This watch is designed for men who understand the value and richness of a second, and the many points in time it encompasses. The moment when an important decision is made. The moment you cross the finish line. The moment when the record was broken. The entire future may depend on any of these moments. The Zenith Chronomaster Sport is designed for these moments. That’s why this watch is equipped with an improved El Primero 3600 movement that measures 1/10 of a second.

Stylish design for all occasions
The Zenith Chronomaster Sport is stylish and stunning. It’s a watch that is both sporty and chic, and you can wear it to a business meeting or spending quality time with your family as easily as when it matters most – when you’re chasing your sports dreams.

The stainless steel case is 41 mm wide. It has pump buttons and a polished black ceramic bezel. You can choose from a black or white dial – both feature the iconic El Primero chronograph in tri-colour blue, anthracite and light grey. The indexes and hands are rhodium-plated. This bracelet is similar to what Gay Freres conceived in past editions. It is timeless integrated steel. For a more casual look, you can also opt for a textured corduroy-effect rubber strap with a steel buckle.

El Primero is the real star here. It is the latest watchmaking innovation and technology, and its performance is sure to surprise you.

Zenith Chronomaster Sport has a power reserve of 60 hours. As for water resistance, it can withstand pressure equivalent to a depth of 100 meters.

Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Bronze Chronograph, Blue Dial

At Baselworld 2018, Le Locle watchmaker Zenith released a new blue version of the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Chronograph. Aside from the dial and strap color, this version is identical to the brand’s Pilot Type 20 Bronze Chronograph that launched last year (which we covered here). While bronze isn’t the first material that comes to mind when thinking of aviation watches, the retro vibe and unique sheen of bronze watches have really become very popular in recent years over time.

Specification
Brand: Zenith
Model: Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Chronograph, Bronze Blue Dial. Model 29.2430.4069/57.C808
Dimensions: 45mm wide x 14.25mm thick
Case material: bronze, titanium case back, engraved with the Zenith aircraft logo
Crystal/Lens: Domed Sapphire, Anti-Reflection Treatment on Both Sides
Movement: Internal El Primero 4069 caliber, self-winding column-wheel chronograph
Frequency: 36,000vph (5Hz)
Power reserve: 50 hours
Strap/Bracelet: Blue oily nubuck leather strap with protective rubber lining and titanium pin buckle

Bronze cases are often paired with brown or black dial watches to maximize the “vintage” look, but some brands have recently had success with limited-release blue dial variants, such as the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Bronze Blue (which we cover here). too, despite the truly unfortunate model name) and the Oris Carl Brashear Chronograph Limited Edition (introduced here). The addition of blue dials modernizes these watches, making them even more youthful, a design goal that Zenith has now achieved for the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Chronograph. Unlike Tudor and Oris, this watch is not limited edition, indicating the brand is confident in achieving strong and sustained sales of these watches.

The Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Chronograph offers everything that sets its 2017 predecessor apart, and pairs better with a blue-themed wardrobe. The retro theme is still strong, but toned down compared to the previous version. In a sense, this is Zenith’s attempt to tackle three recent fake watches for sale trends at once. Larger case (45mm watches will definitely wear large), blue dial (seems to be a must in everyone’s watch collection now) and bronze case, achieved without consuming gold Warm look. Whether or not these three features work together is a matter of personal preference; for myself, I think both Oris and Tudor get the better blue and bronze look.

Franck Muller unveils new timepiece for 30th anniversary

Geneva watchmaker Franck Muller is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a new limited-edition watch. “Crazy Hours Limited Edition” pieces will be included in the brand’s signature “Crazy Hours” collection.

The Crazy Hours Limited Edition timepiece impresses by combining several iconic Muller symbols, including its recognized “Dream of Color” numerals, holographic numerals and the unique Crazy Hours complication.

Featuring the brand’s signature curved Cintree Curvex case profile, the Crazy Hours 30th Anniversary watch will evoke the owner’s emotions through its “ingenious and complex” mechanism and luxurious dial. Two versions show an 18k rose gold case, while the remaining two versions are silver.

The Crazy Hours collection is the most emblematic collection of Franck Muller timepieces. The decorative dial of the Crazy Hours watch is decorated with non-traditional numerals, offering an impressive mechanical movement that is easily read by the hour hand, which jumps amazingly from one hour to the next in the correct sequence. The minute hand follows the traditional 60-minute flow.

For the 30th Anniversary Edition, the limited-edition timepiece showcases a redesigned dial with each hour numeral off-center: a timepiece that creates wearable art. The number 30, representing 30 years of watchmaking, takes centre stage and is decorated with 20 hand-set brilliant-cut diamonds.

The Crazy Hours Limited Edition comes in four different versions in royal blue, burgundy and white with hand-painted fantasy numbers, and is available in three different sizes: 5850, 7880 and 8880. This eye-catching timepiece is also water-resistant up to 30m.

Franck Muller Vanguard Classic can take you from boardroom to beach

Fans of Franck Muller will know that there is something for everyone in the Vanguard collection. With more than 30 different models in its current collection, including chronographs, tourbillons and skeleton movements, the independent watchmaker ensures that wherever you want to take your watch, you’ll find a piece with wide curves to suit you.

Despite the wide range of options, each reference evokes a specific lifestyle to which each watch fits, whether for an international currency mover or someone who enjoys spending time on the deck of a yacht. However, when it comes to the Franck Muller Vanguard Classic, the clean design may best speak to those who prefer a less cluttered approach to watchmaking.

With the Franck Muller Vanguard Classic reference V45 SC DT TT NR BR NR, you get the same concave caseback as all members of the Vanguard family, wrapping intuitively around the contours of your wrist, but on the dial side you get an eye-catching The sight is not overwhelming.

The bold Arabic numerals are a rich ruby ​​color, set against the lightly patterned black dial, taking up most of the dial space without any competition from the chronograph sub-dial or the exposed tourbillon aperture.

The same striking red appears in the dial text and the circles around the hand stacks, as well as the obvious crown and strap stitching, creating a strong visual contrast with the rest of the watch. This contrast conveys a statement without overdoing it with too much color, which works well on the wrist.

Like all fake men watches in the collection, one of the most striking features of the Franck Muller Vanguard Classic compared to the others is the pronounced curve of the case, which makes the watch very comfortable to wear. In this reference, the black case is brushed horizontally (except for the vertically brushed caseback), which provides some nice visual texture and complements the horizontal dial pattern.

It’s legible, easy to wear, and finished to the high standards you’d expect from such a respected watchmaker. Overall, the Franck Muller Vanguard Classic is an eye-catching case, a comfortable sports watch that easily straddles the divide between a seaside resort and a boardroom, and anywhere in between.

Watch brand in Pantone Illuminating Yellow 2021

wholesale replica watches brands are already capitalizing on the positive power of the 2021 Pantone Colors.

The Pantone Color Institute, which regularly tracks color across all industries and publishes its annual Color of the Year, spoke. The colors of 2021 are not just one shade, but two: Ultimate Gray and Glow. The lighting is a bold yellow, and the ultimate grey is exactly what it sounds like. Not one of 50 grays, but a rich warm gray that is expected to evoke warm emotions when juxtaposed with Illuminating. However, since we already have a lot of gray in our lives in 2020, we’re witnessing certain watch brands jumping on the yellow shades ahead of Pantone’s Illuminating announcement.

In the second half of 2020, we have seen various watch brands launch watches with yellow dials and accents in an attempt to lift the spirits. Therefore, watch brands seem to be ahead of the trend. Let’s take a look at several hot yellow watches launched this year.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual
This year, Rolex went all out with some amazing watches. Among them: Oyster Perpetual in three sizes. The 41mm watch seen here is made of Oystersteel for the case and bracelet. Bright yellow dial with hour markers in 18-karat gold. This 41mm watch is powered by the Rolex 3230 Superlative self-winding movement, developed in-house and patented, one of which is the brand’s Chronergy escapement. To some, Rolex’s bright yellow is surprising, but those familiar with Rolex know that the color has always been part of the brand’s history.

Breitling Endurance Pro
As this year’s special collection, the Breitling Endurance Pro watch is available in a variety of colors, but the bold yellow – with a yellow strap, yellow dial and yellow crown – is by far the most exciting. Made from Breitlight®, a Breitling proprietary material, this lightweight watch is more than three times lighter than titanium and nearly six times lighter than stainless steel. It is also non-magnetic and highly resistant to corrosion and scratches. Designed for high-intensity sports, this watch is powered by the Breitling Calibre 82, a heat-compensated Super Quartz Observatory-certified movement. Chronograph times are 1/10 of a second and 30 minutes.

Doxa Divingstar Sub 300T
Swiss watch brand Doxa launched the first Sub 300T (Conquistador) diver’s watch more than 50 years ago in 1969. Watches with helium release valves quickly became fan favorites and have continued to evolve over the decades. This Sub 300T Divingstar pays homage to the original. The three-hand watch is made of stainless steel with an anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal. The watch can withstand pressures up to 120 bar (1200 meters) and features a patented unidirectional rotating bezel with a no-decompression dive time calculator. Super-LumiNova makes underwater reading easy. This watch is powered by an automatic ETA movement.

Nomos Glashütte Club Campus 38 Pride
This year, brand Nomos Glashütte, no stranger to color, teamed up with Cool Hunting to create a colorful limited-edition mechanical watch in support of the global LGBTQ community. The result is six different watch dial colors representing the rainbow. The Club Campus 38 Pride Yellow Sunshine Edition is a limited edition of only 22 pieces of each color. The yellow version represents sunlight, while the other colors represent tranquility, spirituality, life, nature and healing.

Grand Seiko SBGW289 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition

The Grand Seiko SBGW289 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition is part of the brand’s heritage collection that celebrates the “sakura” or cherry blossoms. Adhering to the design principles of the 44GS, this legendary model debuted in 1967, and this latest creation features a textured dial designed to mimic the look of a cherry blossom.

Grand Seiko often looks to nature for inspiration. Most notably, the brand achieved great commercial success with its “Snowflake” dials. In this case, the Japanese brand chose to celebrate the cherry blossoms.

Cherry blossoms are so important to the Japanese that during the first few months of the year, many citizens track the Sakura Front (Sakura Front) as the cherry blossoms move north. Residents of the country celebrate the beauty of cherry blossoms. In fact, many of them take part in “hanami,” a centuries-old tradition of drinking under blooming cherry blossoms.

The Grand Seiko cheap is presented on a pale pink dial and enriches it with a subtle texture that brilliantly captures the charm of the cherry blossoms. The Grand Seiko SBGW289 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition has a slightly feminine character thanks to its color scheme and modest case diameter of 36.5mm, although I’m sure many men will succumb to the model’s charm.

In 1967, Grand Seiko released the 44GS, a model with a diameter of 37.9 mm. As mentioned, this new model has a smaller case but retains the silhouette of the 1967 icon. The curved sides and sharp angles give the composition a unique look. The case features the brand’s legendary Zaratsu polishing technique, a mirror-polished form that provides distortion-free reflections, as well as a hairline brushed finish. A boxed sapphire crystal adds a touch of period charm to the design, while a sturdy caseback features the brand’s historic lion logo.

The Grand Seiko SBGW289 44GS 55th Anniversary Limited Edition is powered by the 9S64 movement. This hand-wound movement features a Swiss lever escapement with a balance frequency of 28,800 vph (4HZ). This is a tried and tested movement that has powered several GS models over the years. It uses the brand’s MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) technology, which is similar to LIGA technology. The escape wheel and pallet rod are skeletonized and optimally shaped, which means they are light and therefore consume less energy. In addition, the teeth of the escape wheel have small reservoirs that retain lubricant for longer, reducing friction and wear. Assuming the watch is fully wound, it will run automatically for 72 hours. quality replica watches

Finally, the hands and hour markers are multi-faceted, blending in with the light, thus improving readability. This nature-inspired model makes a compelling case for an acquisition.

The 1967 44GS watch first embodies the design code known as “Grand Seiko Style,” a set of nine principles that give Grand Seiko its unique look and still inspire every new creation. Now, 55 years after the 44GS design debuted, a limited-edition hand-wound watch with a slender case silhouette fully embodies “Grand Seiko style”, with a dial inspired by the beauty of northern Japan’s spring, all Grand Seiko mechanical watches Made here.

With four unique seasons, Japan’s natural world offers a rich variety of attractions that are both ephemeral and memorable. One of them is Sakura Corner, a brief moment in spring where snow and cherry blossoms coexist in northern Japan. The dial of this new piece is a delicate pink and slightly silvery tones that perfectly capture the moment when the cherry blossoms emerge from the snow, sparkling and beginning to melt in the spring sun.

What makes this watch unique is that it combines a slim 36.5mm profile with all the features that make the 44GS such an unforgettable and long-lasting design. To achieve this, every aspect of the watch’s construction has been reconsidered. The design of the case takes full advantage of the slim nature of the Grand Seiko manual-winding Calibre 9S64, while retaining the flat surfaces and sharp angles of the original 44GS. The slim bezel, hour markers and hands complement the case design for a fresh and classic Grand Seiko look.

The movement is hand-assembled by artisans at Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi, and the case is hand-polished by Zaratsu without distortion, which has always been the hallmark of the “Grand Seiko Style”. discount replica watch
