Three Perfect Replica Watches And three Replicas Relojes De Ay Caramba

The watchmaker Breitling, famous for its watches airmen, had the luxury of a well-known face in the world of football. And David Beckham, since it is him (and replicas of relojes) has conducted a good campaign for the model Transocean Chronograph Unitime. I just wanted to do a little background because behind every watch, there is a story and each watch reminds me immediately to a personality. Often, when people say “Breitling”, I think “John Travolta”. So here we are.

Fans watch surely know that the first Unitime was born in the 50s and the replicas of the model were very popular. This watch, and even his answer also, is a jewel of technology unparalleled. His double disc and chronograph world time make the watch trip par excellence. The watch is equipped with a new B05 caliber, unlike its predecessors. With David Beckham as the face, communication was quite a blow. Why do not want to reply, certainly distinguished and masculine?

21 July 1969. Indeed, this is one of the events that generated the most enthusiasm among the spectators of the time. Normal, we can only welcome human performance in technological advancement. So the Omega brand did not miss this event by sending one of its Speedmaster watches the moon. This watch, which certainly the replica is also sought, spring limited edition called “Professional Apollo 11″. The jewel that Buzz Aldrin had wrist at the time was part of a recent technological success: a Speedmaster Professional with a 42mm titanium case in design shaped laser supplemented with gold.

If you look closely at what should be a replica of the Omega Speedmaster watch, you’ll see a black dial with 3 counters, red gold hands coated with Super-LumiNova (photoluminescent pigments that reflect the colors of the moon) and a domed sapphire cover to protect the display. As is known, the replicas relojes of the Speedmaster collection are distinguished by their window marked with a tachymeter scale. If you love bracelets made of fabric, this model should definitely you. So a small space trip?

Have you ever tried to classify brands by showing their elegance or simply in the style? Do like me, you have hesitated because of a first glance, all brands are equal? Used to the idea that the Panerai watches were only intended for large hard, I found myself somewhat shocked when I discovered that some of replicas relojes brand were real masterpieces that compete well other finest brands.

So I understand better that we want the replica of a vintage watch Luminor. Collectors know this very well: the watch Luminor promises precision in sobriety. In Geneva, a rare model of the collection was sold for CHF 425,000 at Sotheby’s auction and there is really something. This sum is equivalent to about 348,000 euros, a real trifle!
For the first time in years, a watch of the Florentine brand has been sold for a high price.

The replica will be the kind of watch that is worn with a retro look simply: bag, bracelet or hat. You know that in the coming years, the value of Panerai watches promises to increase? This is precisely the moment to capture the best of replicas relojes.

Rolex and the world’s best paid athlete

Forbes magazine, known for its annual rankings of all kinds, recently released its 2013 classification of the world’s best paid sportsmen. If you look closer, you will not be greatly surprised to see that among the top thirty in the list, at least fifteen are under an advertising contract with a watch brand. It looks as if sponsoring the global sports elite is now de rigueur.

Who holds the top spot in 2013 for employing the best paid sportsmen in the world? Rolex. Which athlete edges into second position? Rolex. And who gets onto the third step of the podium?Hublot. One could go on and on, as the Forbes ranking of the world’s best paid sportsmen mirrors the appetite of today’s most powerful and most visible watch brands.

Of the first thirty sportsmen in the ranking (which lists the first hundred), more than half have opted for watch sponsorship. So, golfer Tiger Woods who takes home first place in the rankings with 78.1 million dollars in revenue is supported by Rolex, after stints with the Tudor and TAG Heuer watch firms. He is closely followed by Roger Federer, another Rolex partner following his warm-up with Maurice Lacroix, with an annual income of $71.5 million. Then comes the American basketball player and Hublot ambassador Kobe Bryant (formerly with Girard-Perregaux) of the Los Angeles Lakers, with $61.9 million. Next is LeBron James ($59.8 million), another basketball player, this time supported by Audemars Piguet. And the list of watch industry-sponsored athletes doesn’t end there: TAG Heuer, Omega, Richard Mille and many others have chosen to sponsor a member of the global athletic elite. It has become a no-brainer.

Note that in the kingdom of watchmaking, not all sportsmen are created equal before the eyes of the checkbook. American football and boxing seem somewhat neglected by watchmakers, while golf, tennis, Formula 1 and basketball rule the roost. Not content with just lending their image to the brand they serve some athletes now dare to wear their watch while performing their stunts as if to provide tangible proof of the reliability of their precious timepieces. Along with Rafael Nadal, Bubba Watson, and Yohan Blake, who all wear their watches – when authorized – for their performances, Richard Mille has clearly been breaking ground in this new discipline.

Another striking fact emerges from this listing: it has an extremely low proportion of women. Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova (TAG Heuer ambassador), the first woman on the list, comes in way down in 22nd place. But that is another story.

2014 Cartier Watchmaking Institute competition: eight laureates named

On 3 May, at the Théâtre de L’Heure Bleue, Jean-Kley Tullii, director of the Cartier Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, presided over the traditional awards ceremony of the Cartier Watchmaking Institute competition.

To perpetuate the art of fine watchmaking, Cartier set up the Cartier Watchmaking Institute in 1993. Its purpose is to train apprentices in fields as varied as horology, polishing and micro-engineering. In parallel, the IHC offers a range of courses to skilled craftsmen and women enabling them to improve and update their knowledge.

To showcase the expertise of apprentice watchmakers, the IHC has organised, for two decades, a competition allowing talented youngsters to express their technical and artistic skills. The contest is open to all apprentice watchmakers in Switzerland finishing their third year of training in schools of watchmaking, apprenticeship centres affiliated to the watch industry, and private workshops. Across Switzerland’s borders, students at Lange Uhren GmbH in Germany and the Edgar Faure College in Morteau, France, are also invited to submit their projects. Since its creation, more than a thousand participants have taken part in this challenge.

The theme of the 2014 edition was: to produce an indicator revealed every twenty minutes to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the IHC Competition. Participants had 32 hours over two weeks in which to complete the task. On a watch movement provided by Cartier (6497-1), apprentices were required to find a technical and aesthetic solution by adding a mechanism or adapting the display systems. They had the possibility of using a drill and a lathe for turning, circular-graining and drilling only.

This year, six schools of watchmaking, seven watchmaking apprenticeship centres and one private workshop took part in the contest. 85 pieces were assessed by a jury comprising Estelle Fallet (head curator of the Museum of Art and History, Geneva), Carole Béatrice Perret (artist), Yves Piller (watch and clockmaker), Giulio Papi (technical director of Audemars Piguet (Renaud & Papi) in Le Locle) and Jean-Marc Matthey (watchmaking instructor).

Based on originality of design, quality of finishing, functionality of the movement and cleanliness of the calibre, eight prizes were awarded. Kaspar Oppliger, of IWC International Watch Co, Schaffhausen, took first place on the podium. Matthieu Gissinger, an apprentice at the Edgar Faure College in Morteau came second, and Joël Kehrli, from the Cartier Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, was placed third. The Award for Originality went to Yves Mathis, of the Zeit Zentrum in Granges. Kaspar Oppliger won a week’s stay in New York. All eight laureates received a Cartier watch and every participant in the contest took home a book about the Manufacture.

Open to young apprentices with an upper age limit of 25, the Cartier Watchmaking Institute competition is hugely successful each year, with nearly a hundred timepieces submitted to the jury. Despite the contest’s strict technical guidelines, participants are undeterred: in addition to meeting technical specifications, the movements submitted must be in working order and strong enough to withstand transportation by post. Candidates are also required to supply a journal of their work describing operations carried out and details of the modified calibre. Apprentices do not hold the title to their work, which remains the property of the IHC.
