TAG Heuer Replica Is Showing A Collection Of Vintage Chronographs In Paris, And You Should Definitely Check It Out

From now until the end of April, TAG Heuer Replica is showcasing a small collection of historically important watches, most of them chronographs from the 1960s and ’70s, in one of its Paris boutiques. If you find yourself in the French capital, you should definitely head to 12 Boulevard des Capucines and pay the boutique a visit.

The small trove of watches has been lent to the shop by the TAG Heuer Museum and a handful of private collectors. These particular watches provide a link between the company’s past and TAG Heuer’s Replica current collection, marked by the recent comeback of several of these vintage pieces.

At 12 Boulevard des Capucines, you’ll find the TAG Heuer Paris flagship boutique.

Placed next to one another, the watches display the chronograph’s evolution at Heuer; a mere comparison of the Autavia and the Montreal could not better highlight the design evolution from the 1960s to the ’70s. It is definitely not the only reason to check these chronographs out though, as each has its own deep roots in the automative world. A yellow gold Carrera reference 1158CHN similar to the watches that were issued at the time to Ferrari F1 drivers is just one example.

I’ve compiled a few photos of the watches currently on display, in case a trip to the boutique itself isn’t in the cards for you. It’s not everyday you get to see these watches, especially in this condition.

This exhibition of vintage chronographs is on display at the TAG Heuer Paris boutique located at 12 Boulevard des Capucines, and it runs through the end of April 2017. For more, visit TAG Heuer online.

Omega Replica Wins Big As Its Brand Ambassador Sergio Garcia Wins The Masters

Omega’s Replica 14-year bet on Spanish golf star Sergio Garcia finally paid off this past weekend when he won the 2017 Masters in Augusta, Georgia, the first major championship of his career. The 37-year-old took the top prize in a dramatic finish at the Augusta National Golf Club following four days of highly competitive play. 

Sergio Garcia vs Justin Rose

After sinking his winning putt in the play-off against Justin Rose, Garcia claimed the famous “Green Jacket” which has been worn by some of golf’s most iconic names, while on his wrist he sported the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M “Deep Black”, made from a single block of black ceramic. Another timepiece which was added to his collection of Omega watches.

Garcia received the watch from Omega Replica on Wednesday, just one day before the tournament began. Omega began its association with Garcia back in 2003. He had competed in over 70 major tournaments before finally winning the Masters. “Sergio has proven that great things come with time,” states Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of Omega. “We always believed in him. He is a player that shows his emotions and that win was a perfect display of who he is as a person. The final round was incredibly close and was such a great advertisement for the sport of golf. The fact that Sergio won and clinched his first Major title was the perfect way for it to end.” Despite this historic win, lets hope he doesn’t lose his Seamaster like celebrity Chef Alton Brown.

Will He Continue?

The victory follows Sergio’s win earlier in the season at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, sponsored by the Swiss watch brand, which had looked like a cinch for Tiger Woods until he dropped out at the last minute. Despite the lack of major championship trophies Garcia García has spent much of his career in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking (7th place as of 4/10/2017). Garcia’s Planet Ocean Deep Black is the new model with blue accents and contrast stitching. As a diver descends, blue is the last color visible at a depth of approximately 275 meters. It’s one of the more handsome Planet Ocean models in the watchmaker’s lineup.

Up to Speed with the New Fake Rolex Daytona Chronograph with Oysterflex

As part of their novelties for the year, Rolex Replica has released a new generation of gold Daytona chronographs at Baselworld 2017. And these are very different to any existing Rolex Daytona Replica  models. Rather than the traditional Oyster bracelet or leather straps that we’ve become accustomed to, these new gold Daytona watches come with the Oysterflex bracelet.

The Oyster bracelet on the Daytona Replica was introduced at Baselworld 2017.

The Rolex Oysterflex Bracelet

Before we get to the watches themselves, let’s have a quick refresh of the Oysterflex bracelet. The Oysterflex made its debut in 2015 on the then-new Yacht-Master 40. It was Rolex’s first rubber-style strap, but of course, the brand does not refer to it as a rubber strap!

At the center of the Rolex-patented Oysterflex bracelet is a titanium and nickel metal alloy blade. That blade is then covered with a robust black elastomer coating, a.k.a. rubber. Now this rubber bracelet on the Daytona Chronograph, its only fitting to see the details in the bracelet. A particularly clever detail are the so-called “fins” underneath the bracelet. The fins leave some space between the bracelet and skin to allow for air circulation and comfort. The part metal, part rubber strap is then fitted with a gold Oysterlock safety clasp for optimal security. Furthermore, the clasp also boasts another Rolex patent—the Easylink extension system that permits the bracelet to increase by up to 5mm.

It’s interesting to note that the leather strap versions of the Daytona are no longer listed on the Rolex website—perhaps the Oysterflex models have taken their place.

The Three Versions of the New Rolex Daytona

Rolex presented three new versions of the Rolex Daytona with the Oysterflex: 18k white gold (ref. 116519 LN), 18k yellow gold (ref. 116518 LN), and 18k Everose gold (ref. 116515 LN). The decision to exclusively use gold rather than to include stainless steel certainly emphasizes the luxury component of these Daytona models.

The yellow gold Daytona ref. 116518 features a champagne dial with black registers while the white gold Daytona ref. 116519 has a steel dial with black registers. On the other hand, the Everose Daytona ref. 116515 offers plenty of dial options including black, pink, chocolate, and ivory.

The Oyster case size of the new Daytona remains the same at 40mm. Due to the Oyster case construction, Triplock screw-down winding crown, and fluted caseback, the Daytona is water resistant to 330 feet (100 meters). Moreover, the Oysterflex Daytona replica watches also have the black Cerachrom ceramic bezel, completing the model’s overall super sleek and sporty look.

Rolex Caliber 4130

Like all modern Daytona watches, the three new Oysterflex Daytona watches run on the famed Rolex Caliber 4130—an in-house automatic chronograph movement. In addition to the movement’s 72 hours of power reserve, as of 2015, all Rolex movements are accurate to +2/-2 seconds per day thanks to the redefined Superlative Chronometer certification. The chronograph hand is accurate to 1/8th of a second, while the 30-minute counter sits at 3 o’clock, the 12-hour counter sits at 9 o’clock, and the small-seconds counter sits at 6 o’clock.

There may be some debate within Rolex fandom about these new Oysterflex Daytona models, however, we think it’s a great addition Rolex’s assortment of chronographs. While certainly not a runaway hit like last year’s steel and ceramic Daytona ref. 116500LN, the new 2017 gold Daytona models with the Oysterflex bracelet fits nicely into the Rolex catalog. An appealing blend of ultra luxurious gold, rugged rubber, and the famous Daytona moniker. Although first spotted on the Yacht-Master 40, the Daytona might be better suited for this bracelet.

What do you think of the new Daytona models? Are you a fan of the Oysterflex bracelet?

 

The Montblanc Replica Summit Smartwatch (Live Pics, Pricing, Full Details)

Today in London, Montblanc Replica has unveiled its latest horological creation, the Summit Smartwatch. You might remember Montblanc dipping its toe into the digital waters a few years ago with an “e-strap,” but now the watch and pen company is diving in head-first. We’ve got all the details on the new line-up, along with a ton of live photos and some perspective from Montblanc Replica CEO (and now Richemont board member) Jérome Lambert.

It’s worth noting up front that this is the first smartwatch to come from one of Richemont’s portfolio brands. It comes hot on the heels of TAG Heuer’s second smartwatch and just a few months after Frederique Constant spun off MMT as a separate company. The Swiss are clearly serious about getting into the still-developing smartwatch market and specifically about creating a space for luxury smartwatches.

The three stainless steel versions of the Montblanc Summit smartwatch.

“This project goes all the way back to 2013, just around the time I was to join Montblanc,” said Lambert when asked about the origins of the Summit. “I was practicing mountaineering in Switzerland and experimenting showed me my traditional running watch wasn’t capable of what I needed and my fine watches wouldn’t either. I was frustrated that after 11 years in fine watchmaking I couldn’t fine a proper tool.” So he went out and made one.

Montblanc replica

The Summit Smartwatch replica uses Montblanc’s sporty, vintage-inspired 1858 collection as a jumping off point. The case is 46mm across and 12.5mm thick. It very much looks and feels like a Montblanc watch, despite the fact that there’s no physical dial or hands to speak of. It certainly wears big, as you’d expect from those specs, but it’s relatively lightweight, since there’s not a hefty mechanical movement inside and the construction is either steel or titanium.

The case and crown are borrowed from the 1858 collection

There are four different color variants of the Montblanc Summit: black PVD stainless steel, stainless steel with a black PVD bezel, stainless steel with a satin finish, and grade five titanium with a satin finish. You’ll notice there are no photos of the titanium version here, as prototypes were not yet available to shoot. To complement these cases, there are eight strap options: black, blue, green, and red rubber NATOs, black calfskin, brown or navy blue Sfumato calfskin, and alligator. Montblanc quotes “more than 300 different configurations” but that does include the different watch faces as well, not just hardware set-ups.

The sapphire crystal is domed, but very gently so you don’t really see it.

The Summit’s crystal is curved and made of sapphire, something Montblanc is emphasizing as a connection to more traditional watchmaking. We’re very used to tapping and swiping on flat glass, and sapphire tends to fingerprint pretty badly, so I was a little skeptical here. But, the curve is barely noticeable (I honestly think most people won’t even realize). Fingerprints, on the other hand, are definitely an issue, though that’s not unique to this smartwatch by any means.

As far as the technical specs go, the Summit has a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor inside and a 1.39 inch AMOLED display outside. There are sensors for measuring steps and movement, a compass and gyroscope for orientation, a barometer, an ambient light sensor, and a heart rate monitor. There’s also a microphone for voice commands and both wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity (no cellular though). On board you’ve got 4GB of storage for synching music and other data offline. The two things you’ve probably noticed missing are a speaker and an NFC payment chip, so you won’t be making phone calls (GOOD!) or utilizing Android Pay with the Summit.

Battery life is about one day, so you’re going to need to charge the Summit while you’re sleeping each night. You can do this via micro USB on an included magnetic dock. The whole thing is IP68 water resistant, which is the same standard Samsung has used for its latest crop of phones (and one standard above the iPhone 7).

The Summit runs Android Wear 2.0, which is standard for new Android-based smartwatches at this point. Released just a few weeks ago, the latest iteration of Google’s wearable operating system is the first major revamp of the platform and it adds support for things like contactless payments and cellular connectivity. There’s the usual mix of Montblanc-themed watch faces, including those styled after 1858 collection watches as well as the new batch of Time Walkers, and each month, Montblanc will release a new face so the watch always stays fresh. 

One interesting new offering is the opportunity for customers to design their own digital watch dials with Montblanc’s creative team. It won’t be cheap – starting from €15,000 (approiximately $16,100 at time of publishing) – but if having your Summit look completely unique is a priority, or you have some very specific use case that needs to be accommodated, it’s an option.

When asked about the high price, Lambert had a very simple response: “Of course, if I’m going to have my designers work exclusively on that [for a period of time].” He also emphasized that with this service comes a few Summit watches with the watch face loaded on them, and a one-on-one relationship with the creative team at Montblanc. “This gives us the opportunity to do things we cannot do in fine watchmaking, unless you go to Villeret and then we get a €200,000 watch.”

Otherwise, most of the software experience is pretty standard for Android Wear 2.0, though with some aesthetic touches and integrations of apps into Montblanc designs. For example, you’ve got the Google Assistant, Uber, Google Play Music, and Foursquare city guides all right out of the box, plus an integration with Runtastic that includes special watch faces and a free three-month Premium membership. One noted exception is the new Worldtimer app that’ a super cool digital take on a favorite complication.

After speaking with Lambert for half an hour or so earlier today, he mentioned the Summit being a “second watch” for people already interested in mechanical watches. I think he’s right there. I don’t know if I see people shopping for $350 Android Wear smartwatches springing for this instead. Rather, the person who wants a digital tool without having to give up everything he or she knows about watchmaking will see this an option that can scratch both itches.

Long term, Lambert also seems this as part of a larger digital ecosystem. For instance, integration with Montblanc’s Augmented Paper will be coming soon and addition tie-ins are already in the works.

The Summit will be available beginning in May, with a starting retail price of €890 (approximately $955 at time of publishing). For two weeks it will be available exclusively on Mr. Porter, with general availability at Montblanc.com, Montblanc boutiques, and authorized Montblanc retailers starting after that. This prices it below TAG Heuer’s options, but still well above most Android Wear smartwatches (and, for what it’s worth, the Apple Watch).

Montblanc Replica Pen – Gift Review

It’s starting to look like my dad is becoming an avid promoter of high-end replica gifts. I hope you’re catching on the family sarcasm as we’re all kinda giving him a hard time about this just to keep his “passion” at a reasonable level.

Perfect Gift Montblanc Replica Pen Review

We’re men and we all like good looking toys and accessories like replica pens, replica watches, replica cufflinks, replica jewelry as long as they are good quality and they look good. At least this is my dad’s theory and I cannot really disagree with him looking at the circumstances in which I’m writing this article…

Montblanc replica pen

Montblanc replica pen

I don’t really want to get into too many details regarding this Montblanc replica pen and I’d like to just simply show it to you and spice up a bit the articles on my blog. My dad just got this for one of his brothers as a birthday gift because he really liked the impact that the Cartier replica cufflinks I reviewed exactly one month ago had on my uncle’s friend. What can I say, pen looks good and for my untrained eyes in this matter and I would not look at it as a fake.

Maybe because I’m not really used to seeing fake Montblanc pens or too many original Montblanc Replica pens for that matter either. It’s a good quality pen and I think that’s a really cool gift for someone who enjoys this type of accessories. The originals are expensive I know and this one comes with a case and a booklet and all the engravings inside and out. Montblanc logo on the top of the cap and Montblanc engravingsaround the top of the cap pretty much do it for me.

I’m sure that my uncle will like it and that he’ll be a little surprised by my dad with this and I’m really curious what will the feedback will be after he uses it. I really don’t see anyone in my family buying a $400 or higher Montblanc real pen anytime soon but they will surely go for a fake Montblanc pen for less than a quarter of that price when it comes to making a nice gift. Check out some more pics and feel free to give me your thoughts and expertise in this matter.

Blancpain Villeret Quantième Annuel GMT Steel Swiss Replica

Annual calendars were a hot category at both of this year’s Swiss replica watch fairs, and one of the most noteworthy of these, unveiled at Baselworld, was this offering from Blancpain’s elegant Villeret collection. The latest version of the Replica Blancpain Villeret Quantième Annuel GMT, which combines the annual calendar function with a dual-time display, is the first of this model with a stainless steel case.

blancpain villeret quantieme annuel gmt replica watches

The steel case of the Villeret Quantième Annuel GMT Steel (Ref. 6670-1127-55B) is 40 mm in diameter and a modest 11 mm thick.The clean white dial features hands and applied Roman-numeral hour markers also made of steel; the Blancpain “JB” logo appears as the counterweight on the central seconds hand. The dial layout is different from those of many other annual calendar replica watches, with the day, date, and month displays grouped together for an intuitive, sequential reading. The GMT (second time zone) indication is on a minimalist 24-hour subdial at 8 o’clock.

The movement, visible through a sapphire caseback (below) is Blancpain’smanufacture Caliber 6054F, with automatic winding, 34 jewels, and a 72-hour power reserve. Like all annual calendar movements, it requires only one adjustment per year by the wearer, between February and March, to compensate for the 28-day or 29-day length of February; in every other month, the date moves automatically from the 30th or 31st to the first day of the following month. The solid gold winding rotor is enhanced with a guilloché pattern.

Also noteworthy, and adding to the watch’s streamlined look, are the under-lug corrector buttons, which have been patented by Blancpain Replica Watches. Hidden from view under the case’s lugs while the swiss fake watch is worn, they allow the wearer to operate the calendar functions without using a stylus. The corrector at 1 o’clock adjusts the day of the week while the one at 5 o’clock adjusts the month. The second time zone and date, along with the hour and minute, can all be set via the crown.

The UK Replica Blancpain Villeret Quantieme Annuel GMT Steel comes on an alligator leather strap lined with Alzavel calfskin, which fastens with a triple-blade folding clasp. The price is $27,300.

Bell & Ross skull replica watch gets a tattoo

Bell & Ross skull replica watch

IF the design of the case surrounding the dial reminds you of a tattoo, it’s because the skills that produced it closely match those of a tattoo artist. “Each line engraved into the steel is filled manually, using a stylus, with a black ink/varnish, just like a tattoo artist decorating the skin,” Bell & Ross says in a press release.

Evoking some of the most striking designs used to decorate the skin, the BR 01 Burning Skull timepiece “is emblazoned with sparks flying in all directions, on both the front and back, with an array of details covering every surface and recess”.

Even the inscriptions on the case-back seem to be taken from a real tattoo, “with the curved letters appearing to follow the contours of an arm”.

The tattoo is the latest addition in Replica Bell & Ross’s “Skull” collection, marked by replica watches stamped with a skull face. The line was started in 2009 with the launch of the BR 01 Skull.

Last year, the BR 01 Skull Bronze appeared. As the name suggests, this second model is distinguished by the bronze material used to make it.

In the making of the latest model, the swiss made replica watch case is fired several times in an oven to fix the lacquer. It’s a long and painstaking process, taking several hours to finish each case.

After that’s done, the black lacquer underscores the watch’s graphic identity through an interplay of balance and contrast between light and dark tones. A black Super-LumiNova covers the dial, further accentuating the skull and intensifying its defiant stare.

The BR 01 Burning Skull, which is powered by an automatic movement and is water-resistant to 100 metres, is limited to 500 pieces. The skull is not an evil sign in the BR 01 collection, but a military symbol. Specifically, it pays tribute to the legendary parachutists of World War II.

Right from its beginning, Bell & Ross has loved the history and values of the military. Another Bell & Ross Replica collection that bears this tradition is Vintage BR Aeronavale, which features all the symbols and motifs that appear on naval uniforms.

Two new models have been added to the collection: a chronograph and a three-hand small seconds, both housed in a 43mm polished steel case. The blue colour of the modern fake watch reflects the colour of the naval officer’s attire. Its golden hue is the gold of the wings and buttons on it.

The chronograph, equipped with an automatic movement, is designed for pilots. But in both the chronograph and three-hand small seconds models, Bell & Ross says “the glit-skeletonised hour and minute hands stand out starkly against the navy blue sun ray dial”.

“The contrast between the two colours offers a refined air and excellent eligibility.”

In lieu of a Ferrari, why not its replica watch counterpart?

Ferrari Replica Watches

In the three years since the Scuderia Ferrari line of timepieces was launched at Baselworld, the brand has become one of the most saleable at Movado Group, Inc.
Tad Uchtman, brand president of Scuderia Ferrari Orologi, credits this to Ferrari’s enviable brand equity. Until recently, Ferrari held the distinction of “world’s most powerful brand” given by leading brand valuation and strategy consultancy Brand Finance.
“We have millions of followers on Facebook. At any given time, thousands are commenting or reacting online,” Uchtman said.

“Fans of the Ferrari racing team really love the brand, but since not everyone can afford to buy a Ferrari replica, the replica watches are their way to buy into the brand,” he added.
The Lucerne Group which distributes Scuderia Ferrari Orologi, among other branded timepieces, selected 50 SKUs (stock keeping units) instead of bringing in the full 150. Uchtman described the selection as a “good range” that included entry level pieces and the more expensive ones that sell for over P20,000 each.
Aside from Scuderia Ferrari Replica, the Movado Group, Inc. designs, sources and distributes different replica watch brands including Ebel, Coach, Hugo Boss and Lacoste worldwide.
Highlights of the Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Scuderia Ferrari include the new XX Kers (Kinetic Energy Recovering System) in stainless steel with a bright/brushed or black ion-plated finish. Its fixed coin-edge bezel, in red or black anodized aluminum, sports bold contrasting markers and Arabic numerals.
Pieces from this range are contoured to hug the wrist for comfort and feature a raised center section with a horizontally slatted look inspired by the hood of the Ferrari Testarossa.
The entry-level Red Rev styles (with prices starting at P6,550) sport the brand’s signature honeycomb texture on their matte finish black or white dials. Its round 44mm case made of impact-resistant, thermoplastic material has a polished finish reminiscent of a Ferrari dashboard. The black ion-plated crown is etched with the Prancing Horse logo.
