The Amazing Discount Replica Arnold & Son Tourbillon Chronometer No. 36

With Baselworld just a few days away, pre-Baselworld press releases are coming in daily and one of the latest is from Arnold & Son, who are presenting a new tourbillon wrist breitling transocean replica watch they say is based on the movement layout of a chronometer made by British watchmaker John Arnold, in 1778, and which is now part of the collection of the National Maritime Museum in the UK. That particular watch is a bit of a linguistic milestone as well, as it was the first watch to be called a chronometer – though of course, back then "chronometer" didn't mean COSC certification; it just meant a very accurate timekeeper. The Arnold & Son Tourbillon Chronometer, on the other hand, is indeed a COSC-certified tourbillon chronometer wristwatch, which isn't something you see every day.

In the Tourbillon Chronometer No. 36, the movement basically is the watch. The two mainspring barrels, as well as the entire going train, and the tourbillon, are all visible from the dial side; by contrast, the back of the watch presents a pretty austere appearance.

The construction does indeed have a very marine-chronometer feel – there are seven separate cocks (a cock, in cheap rolex replica watchmaking, is a projection holding a pivot or pivots which is secured only at one point, whereas a bridge is secured at two separate points). Four individual cocks hold the train wheels, an additional steel cock holds the tourbillon (the cage is driven from gear teeth on its periphery) and the two mainspring barrels are under two bridges at the top of the dial, or what would be a dial if there was one. The contrast of polished steel with gold is always a handsome one – in traditional English movement finishing it would have been yellow gold, and here Arnold & Son has opted for rose gold, but it's still a very pretty movement and the effect is much the same. 

Now, it has to be said that the one potential gotcha here is that this piece bears an extremely close resemblance to a Breguet La Tradition. Breguet, naturally, has no particular claim on this general type of movement layout – watchmakers have been putting things under cocks for pretty much as long as there have been watchmakers making watches. Be that as it may, however, the fact remains that a tourbillon configured like this is going to irresistibly remind people of the competition, which may or may not be a deal-breaker for potential clients. Personally I think the Arnold & Son has enough of its own identity to stand on its own and to stand up to a comparison with a La Tradition. Besides, Breguet and John Arnold were very close friends, and one of the two earliest tourbillons was actually dedicated to Arnold by Breguet, so maybe a little crossover here is in the spirit of historical accuracy (deliberately or not).

Though there's a definite resemblance to the Breguet La Tradition, this is still very much an Arnold & Son replica rolex daytona automatic with dark blue dial watch in terms of design and overall visual impact.

This is a limited edition of 28 pieces; there will be 28 in red gold and 28 in steel. No word yet on pricing or expected date of availability, but we'll update you as soon as we have that info.


Three Pre-Baselworld Fake Watches That Are Worth Your Time And Money

It's been a tough few weeks for me and my beloved Arsenal. It's all gone a bit wrong for the Gunners in the Premier League and the Champions League but they have an unassailable lead in the League of the Most Annoyed Fanbase. In times of such depression, my only solace is replica watches (and the dulcet tones of the greatest living Welshman Tom Jones). Lucky for me, I'm getting swamped with pre-Baselworld watch releases. With the world's biggest watch fair still a few weeks away, it might be an idea to look at some of the early offerings that pass muster.
Oris Big Crown ProPilot Chronograph

First, we need to talk about Oris. The Swiss independent watchmaker has become something of a hipster fave over the last few years and produces great watches at decent prices. The Oris that caught my eye in the pre-Baselworld releases is the new Big Crown ProPilot Chronograph (left). The original ProPilot was released in 2014 and this variant stays true to the design that proved such a success. The only major tweaks are the more refined lines, including the machine etching on the bezel. Oris is pitching this watch as unisex but, overall, it's very masculine due to the size (44mm) and large crown of the name. Features include the chronograph, of course, but there is also a date window. The case is made of steel and inside is a calibre 774 movement. Prices for the Big Crown ProPilot Chronograph will be released in the coming months.

replica Bell & Ross BR03-94 RS17

Bell & Ross' pre-Baselworld releases are intriguing as the company continues to try to branch out into other areas away from its core aviation replica watches uk speciality. The BR03-94 RS17 (a catchy name, if ever there was one) has been created in collaboration with the Renault Formula One team, to wit, this is a racing watch and takes its design and build cues from the world of performance motor racing. The watch (right) is made of tough ceramic with a very-F1 carbon-fibre dial, so overall the piece is light. Other nods to racing are the tachymeter scale and the chronograph with Renault homage indicated by the splashes of yellow. The case is square-shaped, which is a Bell & Ross signature that some will love and others will find kind of irritating as it does dominate the wrist. Coming to Hong Kong next month, the BR03-94 RS17 is priced at HK$47,000 and limited to 500 pieces.
replica Blancpain 38 mm Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe

Finally, a new iteration of one of my favourite watches – the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe. True, it doesn't look all that different from the first generation released in 2013, but this bad boy now comes in 38mm (left) and has a more alluring blue dial, which Blancpain is seductively calling "abyss blue". Reducing the size is a welcome move as this watch generally sits large on the wrist with its brutish bezel and nylon strap. The design is a classic and Blancpain knows not to mess with it. Features-wise, it is a simple dive cheap replica watches for men (water resistance to 300 metres and a unidirectional bezel) but inside is an excellent calibre 1150 movement with 100 hours of power reserve. Prices for the 38mm Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe will be released shortly.


Up Close With The Top Imitation Patek Philippe "breguet Numeral" Annual Calendar Ref. 5396

Patek Philippe replica watches bestselling complication with a new face.

Introduced in 1996, the Patek Philippe annual calendar has had a stellar run, becoming of the brand's bestsellers. Thanks to its modular construction, the annual calendar mechanism has been fitted to a variety of base movements, but its most classic form is arguably the window-type display found on the various versions of the ref. 5396.

Last year the ref. 5396 got a facelift with Breguet numerals and dauphine hands, design elements found in many much loved vintage Patek Philippe watches, but rarely paired together. In fact, the new Annual Calendar ref. 5396 might be the first time Patek Philippe has combined the two. Traditionally Breguet numerals, essentially Arabic numbers in a calligraphic font, are paired with Breguet, leaf or spade hands, even on pocket patek philippe replica watches.
replica Patek Philippe ref. 5396

Angular and rather large, the dauphine hands aren't a natural fit for the Breguet numeral dial, though the result is still handsome, albeit modern looking rather than strictly classical. Being wide at their base, the hour and minute hands cover the top of the 24-hour sub-dial at six o'clock over several hours over a day; though the 24-hour indicator has limited utility.

Up close, however, both dials are beautifully detailed. The new Annual Calendar is available in two guises, white gold as the ref. 5396G-014 and the rose gold ref. 5396G-012.

The dial on the white gold model is a medium grey with a metallic, sun-ray brushed finish, giving it a restrained appearance. While the dial disc is brass, the applied numerals and spherical minute markers (which appeared pressed in from the back) are 18k white gold, as are the hands. The 24-hour indicator at six o'clock sits on a crisply recessed track that gives the entire dial a bit of depth.

On the rose gold version the dial is similarly constructed, though the surface is finished in grained silver instead. Notably, the recessed track for the 24-hour display is finished with fine concentric lines known as azurage.

Dials aside, both are identical to earlier versions of the ref. 5396. Typical of a Patek Philippe, the case is streamlined and elegant, being 38.5mm wide and a slim 11.2mm high. Inside is the calibre 324 S QA LU 24H that is built on Patek Philippe's workhorse automatic movement. It's carefully and concisely decorated, with all the details attended to, but in a workmanlike manner.

Price and availability

Both the Annual Calendar ref. 5396G-012 and ref. 5396G-014 are priced at SFr42,300 each, the same as previous versions of the reference. It's available from Patek Philippe boutiques and retailers.

R52 000? Imitation Watch Collectors Don't Flinch, And Even Take Seconds

Time has never been more ubiquitous and in your face. It's on the phone, the computer, the car and every blasted appliance.

"You don't need a best replica watches uk to tell the time," confesses timepiece connoisseur Watch Anish at a midtown Manhattan cocktail party celebrating luxury watches. (Real name: Anish Bhatt, but as an Instagram brand, he's so beyond that.)

You hear this observation plenty in the haute horology world, even from people selling six-figure timepieces.

Also, that a Timex tells pretty good time.

But facts matter not a second hand to obsessive collectors, almost all of whom are male, in a market where $15,000 (around R20 000) models are deemed "middle-class" timepieces.

Luxury high quality iwc replica watches are Porsches for your wrist, Birkin bags for boys that speak stacks of cash about the owners. To aficionados, that thing you're wearing, especially if it's a quartz movement, isn't remotely interesting. It's barely a watch.

Attending a watch event is like landing in a tiny, exotic and costly country, where you never really master the language or the customs.
luxury fake watches

At expertly lighted booths that make the watches sparkle like diamonds (the ladies' models are often encrusted with them), the dealers resemble charming Bond villains in dark clothes and black gloves – so as not to smudge the merchandise.

There are many tall men of impeccable grooming named Roland and Lothar, with seductive accents, with whom you might care to discuss the merits of a minute repeater or a flyback chronograph into the wee hours. The saleswomen are exceptionally knowledgeable and, it will come as no surprise, attractive.

Their brands sound like 19th-century nobility and are treated accordingly: Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Jaeger-LeCoultre. Their ads feature Formula One racers and tennis and international film stars who bankroll luxury magazines, which would be naked – and probably defunct – without them. Luxury fake rolex watches ads seem more ubiquitous than the objects they're selling.

Meet The New Replica Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Minute Repeater Tourbillon

At Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), we are seeing a lot of great new complications, including some superb multi-complications - and, once agin, Fake Vacheron Constantin does not disappoint.  One of the most beautiful timepieces - thanks to its audible elegance - is the Traditionnelle Minute Repeater Tourbillon.

Powered by an in-house-made  Manufacture movement, the Caliber 2755 TMR, the replica watches is being offered in 18-karat  gold for just under half-a-million dollars ($490,000), and in platinum for more than half-a-mil ($546,000). Like all Vacheron Constantin watches, this one holds the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva certification attesting to the high standards of craftsmanship and precision.

Vacheron Constantin Replica

The movement deftly combines  tourbillon escapement (which compensates for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity when the watch is in certain positions) with seconds attached to the cage. The escapement is visible via an aperture at 6:00 on the dial and beats at a slow 2.5Hz for a slower, steady rhythm. The tourbillon carriage is shaped in the Vacheron Constantin Maltese cross emblem. The minute repeater portion of the 471-part, hand-wound  movement is equally as fantastic. It chimes the hours, quarter hours and minutes past the quarter hours in three tones.

The 44mm watch also displays the hours and minutes, and via a pointer indication on the back of the watch, the 58 hours of power reserve. The sapphire crystal case-back reveals the calibre with 40 jewels and meticulous handcrafted finishes. The dial features a specially created hand-guilloche' motif that is used solely on "boutique only" vacheron constantin replica watches. The watch will be sold in a "Music of Time" resonance holder that amplifies the sound of the repeater.
