A permanent evolution of an iconic design that brings together two successful models, the Capsoil and the 1938 Doppiotempo, in new colours

The time on the wrist is multiplied by two, giving the opportunity to experience two different times simultaneously and visually enhance them with a three-dimensional effect that transcends the limitations of glass and dials. That’s the idea behind the Capsoil Doppiotempo model, a perfect combination of a dual time function, provided by an internal rotating bezel and an “oil immersion” concept with an oil bath inside the case and a free-floating compensating bubble dial.

Italo Fontana presents three new Capsoil Doppiotempo models, also equipped with a double crown on the left, one for setting the time and the other for setting the different time zones; available in satin 316L stainless steel cases with black DLC treatment. The entire 45mm diameter features an over-dome sapphire crystal, with the hour-markers and numerals beneath it in a new original colour.

The white version is the exact opposite of the U-BOAT‘s classic color, featuring an inner rotating bezel and a white dial with black hour markers and numerals. The remaining two new models use a black dial and beige numerals, but the hour markers and numerals on the black inner frame are green in one model and red in the other.

An innovative locking system (locking ring system) and a patented screw-on battery housing cover on the back of the case allow quick and easy battery replacement. The strap is black vulcanized rubber with embossed brand logo. The new model is water resistant up to 100 meters. cheap 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.

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 .

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.

Million Sports Bracelet Richard Mille 67-02

The watch to be talked about today is the 67-02 from Richard Mille. Nowadays, when Richard is mentioned, many labels are invisibly assigned, and everyone’s attention to labels seems to go beyond the watch itself, so we won’t talk about labels today, just watch.

Today’s watch styles are divided into traditional and cutting-edge styles. If Patek Philippe is the representative of traditional watchmaking, then Richard is the leader of cutting-edge watchmaking. For example, PP is like Batman, and Richard is like Iron Man. As I said before, cutting-edge watchmaking is like a supercar, and they all have one thing in common: expensive! And Richard as the leader of cutting-edge watchmaking! Of all the watches Richard is selling at present, the cheapest is an ultra-thin automatic two-hand calendar numbered 016.

Richard mille’s 67-02 has four colors, which represent the four famous sports players who cooperate with him and the colors of their respective national flags. Among the four colors, the most eye-catching color is the green in my hand, which corresponds to the South African sprint. Famous player Wade ㆍ Fan ㆍ Nickek. The case of this fake watches for sale is Richard’s classic three-layer structure, the upper and lower layers are quartz fiber, and the middle is carbon fiber; in addition to the carbon fiber on the case, the oscillating weight of the movement is also carbon fiber, and the splint is also made of titanium. Alloy, due to the use of many lightweight materials, this watch weighs only 32 grams.

At this time, a friend will ask, is there a special color and the use of lightweight materials, is this the reason why this watch is so expensive? Of course not, just like you can’t measure the value of a famous painting by the price of paper and ink. Today, it is not difficult for a cutting-edge watch brand to sell watches expensively, but if they can sell more and more expensive watches, they have to pay more. In addition to precise positioning and marketing, I think one of the most important reasons why Richard can have such a high status in just over 20 years is Richard’s persistent research and innovation on the road of technology.

Take the quartz fiber used in this cheap watches online as an example. If you want to show the ripples on the surface, you need to arrange high-purity silica fibers into thin sheets with a thickness of no more than 45 microns, and then soak them in a resin specially developed by Richard. , the sheets are then stacked by an automatic positioning system, while stacking ensures that the filaments between the sheets are staggered at a 45-degree angle. Finally, it is heated to 120 degrees under the pressure of 6 atmospheres.

Let’s look at the movement again. Except for the titanium alloy plywood and base plate, this movement is no different from the ordinary hollow automatic movement, but it is this titanium alloy that instantly increases the processing difficulty of the movement to another dimension. , followed by changes in the entire product process and a substantial increase in production costs. Just like the main substrate of this watch, it takes at least two hours not to mention grinding.

In addition, the shapes of the parts used by fake Richard mille are quite strange, so at each stage of processing, not only the machine tool needs to be manually set and calibrated, but even the cutter for the machine tool needs to be hand-made, and the titanium alloy is hard, New knives wear out after a few uses, and sometimes it takes weeks to make these knives just to produce a special part. So this is why other brands are reluctant to use titanium alloys for movements, this is not watchmaking, this is simply self-abuse! But it was this constant self-abuse that finally made Richard what he is today.

Submersible QuarantaQuattro Luna Rossa watch-PAM01391, diameter 44mm/brushed stainless steel material/P.900 self-winding mechanical movement/hours, minutes, small seconds, date display/countable dive time/power three days/waterproof 300 Meter

At first glance, the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Luna Rossa watch-PAM01391 will definitely be attracted by its authentic nautical style. The red, blue and white color scheme is inspired by the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli sailing team. On the eye-catching dark blue fabric strap, the center Embellished with a sharp red straight stripe and marked with the word “Luna Rossa” in white, it points out the Panerai’s strong connection to the Italian fleet.

Panerai’s blue dials have always been treated very attractively. The sun-ray blue dial on this watch will change with the change of angle and light, and it will shine with ever-changing light, reminiscent of sparkling water. On the sea surface, the hour markers and hands coated with white Super-LumiNova™ luminous coating, as well as the red used for the small second hand, are the representative colors of the Luna Rossa fleet, which subtly symbolizes the winning team at sea. The line of heroic glow. At the same time, the word “Luna Rossa” is marked again at 6 o’clock, pointing out the particularity of this replica luxury watches.

FP Journe Releases LineSport Centigraphe and Automatique Réserve Watches

FP Journe announces that the Centigraphe and Automatique Réserve are now available in platinum and 18k 6N gold to suit your heavy (precious) metal lovers. In a radical departure from the sporty and interesting titanium case and yellow dial style released last year, the FP Journe adds a more upscale option for those interested in the LineSport aesthetics or functionality, without losing any of the watch’s technical appeal. Impressive achievement.

When FP Journe released the brightly colored yellow LineSport option last year, it did feel a little out of place in its catalog. Granted, I appreciate the titanium case and sporty aesthetic that the yellow dial brings, but it really doesn’t look like an FP Journe. The release of these two gold and platinum watches feels more in line with what we’ve seen from the brand in the past. In terms of size, both watches are 44mm in diameter, the Centigraphe is 10.95mm tall and the Automatique Réserve is 11.10mm thick. Depending on the case material you choose, both watches come with a matching platinum or gold bracelet. While the watches share a similar overall aesthetic, the main difference is the technical prowess of the complications.

The Centigraphe is a unique chronograph powered by the in-house Calibre 1506, a hand-wound movement with an 80-hour power reserve and finished in gold. This chronograph is actuated by a rocker on the right side of the case, rather than the pusher commonly found on most chronographs. Unlike many other chronographs, the Centigraphe is extremely precise and its sub-dial allows you to track 1/100th of a second, 20 second and 10 minute indications instead of the usual seconds, minutes and hours sub-dial. For an in-depth look at this movement and how it works, read David’s first-hand experience with the Centigraphe Souverain.

Compared to Centigraphe, Automatique Reserve is much simpler. Powered by the in-house Caliber 1300.3, a rose gold automatic movement with a power reserve of 160 hours; the Automatique Réserve has its own complications. The Automatique Réserve displays the central hours and minutes with a small seconds sub-dial, as well as a day/night indicator, power reserve indicator and a large two-pane date window. By comparison, Automatique Réserve is certainly more conservative (ba-dum-tiss), and in my opinion, it’s still pretty.

While precious metals are certainly not my thing, they do have an important place in the fake watches review industry, especially now that gold is “coming back” whether we like it or not. No doubt I would have preferred the yellow cousin in titanium case released last year, but I’m not the target market for these pieces either. These technically impressive watches should also be available in precious metals for those looking to dress them up and enjoy the extra weight and lustre that platinum and gold bring.

Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino Watch Hands-On

The Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino, also known as the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Gambler, is another unique creation by Jacob & Co. conceived, designed and produced in a move towards their goal of dominating the field of absurd over-engineering Yet another, interesting, ultra-high-end watch — because such things do exist, and in fact have been for years.

Given that Harry Winston Opus watches dominated the mid-play naughty – widely and rightly considered the original source of haute horlogerie – creations that challenged the established limits of design and function – the early teens were all about Jaquet Droz Musical pieces, big brand complications with perpetual calendar, chronograph and striking mechanism. (A little basic research will make you realize how the value of these things from Audemars Piguet, IWC, Lange and others has fallen off a cliff, sometimes to 25% to 30% of the original retail price.) Why do I so? On the one hand, because I didn’t realize until recently that it was a common “serious complication” and not just a “disposable” lemon, and second, to show that there are so many people who can afford these things that are ready to hit their purchases (or even if they are not ready, they are forced,

Like it or not, the resale value of these once Holy Grail state watches is more than I can tell you about their current demand. Those who can burn six-figure sums (in dollars) when buying a watch have turned to watches that have any one or more of the following: 1) novel, 2) interesting, 3) expressive, 4) unique, 5) Simple appreciation. As with watches, the more boxes you tick, the higher the price in general. Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino goes to great lengths to tick all those boxes, and then some.

With its – no other words to describe it – absurd thickness of 27.9mm (i.e. an inch, then some!), it’s a watch that’s easy to admire up close…and the other side of the dining table. It’s as discreet as a 1940s Francis Bacon pinned to your head while sitting at dinner, like a sail. Its weight is verified by the multi-layered, multipurpose JCAM29A movement, which includes the Astronomia “vertical movement” with its rotating platform consisting of four rotating arms and a fully functional, fully mechanical roulette complication beneath it .

First, a few words about astronomy. Although Jacob & Co. created many distinct variants of this movement, it is still excellent in terms of its construction and function. Powered by a single mainspring with an impressive power reserve of 60 hours (maybe longer or shorter depending on model variations and added complexity), essentially apart from the mainspring barrel and winding and setting “bow” Each component of the (crown replacement caseback) plays a role in this four-arm assembly.

Four arms with a double axis tourbillon (which I’ll explain shortly as a triple axis tourbillon), a blue magnesium miniature planet Earth, a 1 carat, 288 faceted Jacob cut diamond, which also goes around it Self-rotating shaft, and differential drive sub-dial for the time. These four arms rotate simultaneously on the face of the watch in less than 10 minutes – it is this rotation that adds a third 10-minute axis to the tourbillon.

The time display rotates with this assembly, so to prevent it from being upside down while running around the copy watch face, a differential is required. This allows the sub-dial to remain level, the hands to be driven, and the entire assembly to rotate together.

The tourbillon and rotating diamonds may be impressive, but two of my favorite astronomical achievements are this differentially actuated time display, and the fact that each two opposing arms are perfectly balanced against each other. Here’s some cool “invisible engineering” to keep the movement from being overly strained by the overweight arm that pulls or pushes the precision-running train assembly.

The heart of this astronomy is, of course, its roulette complexity. Press the button at the 8 o’clock position of the case, the roulette wheel is forcibly rotated, and the small white ceramic balls fly. To prevent it from entering the movement, the entire roulette function is set under a piece of sapphire crystal. The functionality of this complication is reassuring every time the button is pressed, and the overall execution of its every detail is as spectacular as it’s damned.

The wheels are made of 18k rose gold with black and red enamel for its 36+1 pockets. As I said, the thickness is 27.9mm, while the case diameter is 47mm. Oddly enough, with the lugs being so short and angled sharply downward, overall wear resistance is another way Astronomia Casino plays with the senses. Seen directly from above, the overall effect is manageable—even on my narrow wrist, which is 6.75 inches in diameter. However, once I start laying the watch flat away from myself, it starts to show off its crazy case construction, topped by a generously curved sapphire crystal. Speaking of which, the strap is a single sapphire crystal strap that, when paired with the skeletonized lugs, provides an easy view of the Jacob & Co. Astronomia casino in action.

As shown here, it is a one-of-a-kind piece. It’s certainly far more fun to play than any traditional grand complication, and even if one isn’t a gambler, the way this movement is constructed is sure to appeal to watch lovers inside.
