The Evolution of Cartier Watch Design

A Cartier watch can always be relied upon to make a fashion statement. Their designs have always managed to be classic and modern at the same time.  They’ve pioneered trends in watch-making that has changed the way we look at timepieces. Let’s take a look at Cartier’s fascinating history and explore the evolution of their watch design.

The origin of Cartier watches has surprisingly similar roots as Rolex watches, both being based in aviation. As a aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont commented to his friend, Louis Cartier, that pocket watches weren’t suited to use during flights and concurrently asked him if he could design something more fitting. Then Cartier filled a gap in the market when he created the first pilot watch for Alberto Santos Dumont. As the watch had a large contrasting dial, Dumont could read it at a glance, without losing focus of his plane’s controls. The Santos watch went on sale in 1911.

Cartier developed the Tank in 1917 during the First World War, when the British utilized tanks in warfare for the first time. The square watch’s design was based on these colossal steel giants and reminiscent of the tanks’ tracks. One special feature of the Tank was the design of its unique lugs, which were part of the case. The strap fits seamlessly on the Tank with no space between it and the case. Cartier presented the American General John J. Pershing with the first prototype. In 1919, the watch came onto the market. The design caught on quickly with Cartier’s unconventional customers. The Tank is available as both a women’s and men’s watch.

The Ballon Bleu was released by Cartier in 2006, a quirky yet elegant addition to the brand’s stable of timeless watches. The name is derived from the two most prominent details of the timepiece—the blue synthetic sapphire ‘cabochon’ that is mounted in the crown, and the spherical ‘balloon’ shape of the case. There are many different Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica watch models and they vary in size, color, price as well as material combinations. Nonetheless, each is immaculately designed and holds very high standards of craftsmanship.

All in all, watches from Cartier embody perfection unlike any other luxury brand. Every Cartier watch is worthy your time and your money.

Blue Charm- Hublot Big Bang Blue

Hublot celebrates Summer with the release of the Big Bang Blue, a new chronograph characterized by the colour of the sky and the sea. Blue continues to be a popular color for watches, and the Hublot Big Bang Blue is one of the bluest watches out there.

The watch is a flyback chronograph with a skeletonized dial and all the classic Hublot features such as the H-type spline screws in titanium, and the Unico flyback chronograph movement. It’s a large watch at 45 mm diameter, 16.3 mm thickness, and its water resistance of 10 atm (100 metres) makes it perfect for the beach where it will stand up to water splashes and even light surface swimming.

The skeletonized dial features the usual dial configuration of other Hublot Big Bang watches: running seconds at 9 o’clock and 60-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock. The hands and applied hour indexes are rhodium-plated and satin-finished and filled with white luminescent material for legibility in low-light conditions. There’s an inconspicuous date window at 3 o’clock and surrounding the dial is a blue flange marked with the minutes.

The Big Bang Blue can be matched to a blue and white natural rubber strap for life at the beach or with a blue alligator strap for the evening. Bezel lug and lateral inserts are crafted from white composite resin. Visible through the skeleton dial, the UNICO Hublot MHUB1242 calibre is a self-winding manufacture movement featuring a flyback chronograph with column wheel. That means some of the going train is visible and so is the column-wheel, and seeing those things in action, especially when you activate the chronograph, is pretty cool. Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, it guarantees an autonomy of three days or 72 hours.

Its blue color scheme, with blue and white natural rubber strap or blue alligator strap with white rubber lining and blue stitching, recalls Hublot’s collaborations with the brand’s ambassador Lapo Elkann, for whom blue is an important part of products by his lifestyle brand Italia Independent. Lapo was present with Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe at the opening of two new boutiques in Cannes and Saint-Tropez.

The Hublot Big Bang replica Blue is limited to just 100 pieces, priced at $21,500, and is initially available at Hublot’s “summer boutiques.”

Rolex Datejust:  Excellent Versatility And Timeless Appeal

The Rolex Datejust is a fundamental watch that has been around for over 70 years. In fact, a Rolex Datejust is a practical model offering what you need in an everyday timepiece and nothing more.

The Datejust is also the quintessential “goes everywhere, does everything” timepiece. When men say they want a watch they can wear with jeans as well as a suit, this is the go-to recommendation. The Datejust defines versatility.

Perhaps one of the most classic and recognizable Rolex watches, the basics of the Datejust’s discreet, understated design have barely changed over its more than 70-year history. The standard men’s Datejust model is available in steel, steel with white, yellow, everose gold, or yellow gold. The watch( shown above) even has some film appearances,  in the movie American Psycho, Patrick Bateman wearing the Rolex Datejust 16013. And as Rolex states, the Datejust is a watch “For those who believe that elegance is timeless”.

While a 41mm version was launched in 2009, the Datejust was previously available only in smaller sizes including 36mm (mens), 31mm (mid size) and 26mm for the ladies. With its 41 mm diameter, this latest incarnation satisfies the desire for a timepiece that makes a bold statement on the wrist. This enduring model has been worn by many famous individuals including President Dwight Eisenhower, literally countless actors, and even Tony Soprano.

The new 41mm size collection was introduced last year with two precious metal versions, yellow gold and Everose and steel. As a result, 2017 Rolex answered many fans’ pleas. They launched an all stainless steel variant. This more affordable example of one of the all-time classic Rolex replica watches also benefits from the next generation caliber 3235 that drives the Sea-Dweller, along with a leaner case, slimmed down hour markers and a bezel in white gold.

The Datejust series has always been the most varied in the Rolex lineup. Rolex offers its line with a bewildering range of different configurations of dial colors, bracelets and indexes. Also, they offer them with either a flat or fluted bezel. Widening the collection even further, an 18k white gold and steel model was launched alongside the 904L steel version.

Swiss Watches: Reviews on Panerai Luminor Collection

For the PANERAI LUMINOR, there are two types: history version and modern version. When it comes to the history version, there can also be divided into two categories: OP movement type and the P movement type. Here we are going to talk about the P movement Panerai Luminor wrist watches. For the P movement watches, they are all carrying with the Panerai new developed P.5000 movements, whose biggest characteristic is eight days of super-long dynamic storage, and the difference from the P.2002 movement is that this Panerai new developed P.5000 movement has only two springs boxes, so it is much slimmer than the P.2002 movement.

The Aesthetic Appeal of Moon Phase Watches

Moon-phase watches are among the most popular luxury watches. A moon-phase watch displays the phases of the moon on its dial. You get more than just the time of day when you wear one of these stylish pieces that bring back memories of yesteryear when watches were the height of fashion and elegance.

A moon phase watch is a watch that will display the actual “moon phases”. So it will tell you when the moon is new or full and all the phases in between. This is usually a feature in higher end watches. Yes, the moon-phase is a complication that I find totally useless, from a practical standpoint. However, from an aesthetic standpoint, it is also one of the nicest complications a wristwatch can have, in my humble opinion. The main reason that a person will have a moon phase watch is for show. It makes an interesting feature on a watch, and may be seen as a mark of an expensive or elaborate time piece.

Most of the luxury watch moonphase complications feature either a “bosom” moonphase (so named for the shape of its aperture) or a radial moonphase with indicator hand. When the last crescent sliver of the waning moon disappears from view, the first sliver of the waxing moon is preparing to emerge from the opposite side of the window. Among watches featuring a moonphase display, the bosom style is most common. “Radial” moonphase displays feature a conventional hand that traces the roughly 29.5 full lunar cycle. Due to the inverse relationship of moon age in the northern and southern hemispheres, the radial moonphase easily can be configured with a double-sized hand that indicates the phase and age of the moon in both hemispheres.

The beautiful display of the moon phase cycle will differ in various best replica watches uk. Often times we see the moon phase display in bright and vibrant colors, adding bursts of color to the dial of the timepiece, but not always. Some Swiss watch brands take a more subtle approach, with the moon phase indicator blending in with the dial color. Today, Moon phase complications are considered more of an aesthetic choice than a complication of intrinsic utility, and watch brands are getting more and more creative at replacing the classic yellow gold moon set against a starry blue night sky with colourful, lively renditions of our satellite.

Appreciation: The Classic Models – Rolex Submariner Watches

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner is a line of sports watches designed for diving manufactured by Rolex, known for their resistance to water and corrosion. The first Submariner was introduced to the public in 1954 at the Basel Watch Fair. The Rolex Submariner is considered “a classic among wrist watches”, manufactured by one of the most widely recognized luxury brands in the world, and due to its popularity has become the subject of massive counterfeiting. The Rolex Submariner is part of Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual line.

The Swiss Replica Rolex Submariner model went into production in 1953 and was showcased at the Basel Watch Fair in 1954. The assigned case reference number of this first Submariner was either 6204 or 6205. It is unclear which model came first; in any event, the two watches are nearly identical. Neither has the distinctive “cathedral” or “Mercedes” hands now so strongly associated with the Submariner line. Rather, both of these early submariners have straight “pencil” style hands. Few, if any, of the 6205 watches bear the name “Submariner” on the dial, a major distinction of modern Submariners.

In 1965–1966, Rolex discontinued use of silver gilt dials on the Submariner watches, switching to white printing. A final important change came with the introduction of the 1680 model in the late 1960s: the 1680 was the first Submariner to be equipped with a date function, marking the completion of the transition of the Submariner line from specialist tool watch to mass market fashion accessory. While many professional and military divers used—and continue to use—Submariners in the most demanding underwater environments, by the late 1960s, the watch had undeniably become a mass market product a s well.

A new Submariner-Date, model 116613 (not to be confused with model 16613), based on the “supercase” used in the GMT II, was presented at the 2008 Basel show. The first Submariner-Date models offered were a yellow gold with blue face and bezel and a new white gold with blue face and bezel. The stainless steel case model was presented at the 2010 Basel show. Its reference is 116610.

The rare gold Rolex is just one of three known to exist — there’s one with a black dial and two with blue dials). This watch was said to have been a prototype from the early 1970’s, so it doesn’t have a serial number. But, the watch is confirmed to be genuine and produced from Rolex’s factory.

AS you can see, it features a dive bezel with knurling on two opposing sections, as well as a bark finish on the Rolex’s iconic jubilee bracelet. It also boasts a blue dial, with yellow gold markers and hands.

Swiss Rolex : Robust Timepieces With Solid Waterproofness And Rugged Construction

As any watch enthusiast knows, Rolex watches are not delicate timepieces that have to be worn carefully. They are robust timepieces with solid waterproofness and rugged construction.

Rugged Construction

Rolex’s build quality is known to be superior to most brands, in fact built like tanks! The bracelets and the clasps are simply excellent and second to none. A Rolex watch takes about a year to make, with nearly everything created in-house at one of the company’s 4 state-of-the-art manufacture locations in Switzerland. Each component of a single watch goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure they do not leave factory unless they are perfect.

You may or may not know that stainless steel comes in various grades and types. Most watches are made from a type called 316L, but Swiss replica Rolex uses 904L – a type of steel that, as far as we know, no one else uses. The 904L stainless steel alloy has a high corrosion resistance, and has good formability and weldability. It can resist temperatures of 450 degrees Celsius or 824 degrees Fahrenheit. The steel grade is meant to be used for the most demanding situations, and highly corrosive conditions. Few steel grades, if any, can match the 904L stainless steel alloy used by Rolex.

Solid Waterproofness

Rolex’s unique watch case, the Oyster case, boasts excellence in both form and function, and promises to be robust and waterproof whether constructed in steel, gold or platinum. The Oyster case was invented in 1926 and was the world’s first waterproof case for a wristwatch. Modern Rolex Oyster watches have a minimum water resistance of 330 feet (100 meters) with many of them featuring even higher depth ratings. Subsequently, this makes it the ideal watch to take with you to more places.

Rolex uses extreme water resistance tests – 10% greater pressure than the water resistance given on the dial, and 25% greater pressure than the water resistance level given on the dial of Rolex divers watches. Rolex has probably invented and conceived among the most well made and celebrated divers watches ever made by man! The legendary Rolex divers watches, the Submariner and the Sea Dweller have travelled to the bottom of the ocean.

Which watch brand is better? Rolex!

Rolex launched a watch in 1945 which is the world’s first watch that can automatically convert date, and it introduced the daydate watch in 1956 which had week calendar display function, and there are 26 languages to choose from. In the last era of mechanical watches, Rolex had always been a global watch industry leader.

Swiss Watches: IWC Aquatimer Deep Two Review

fake swiss watches
fake swiss watches

The most conspicuous technical modification on the new IWC Aquatimers Deep Two is that the external/internal rotating edge. For safety reasons, the inner rotating edge will solely be turned anticlockwise. This guarantees that albeit the external rotating edge is unknowingly touched, the dive time – throughout that the diver will come to the surface with no would like for decompression stops – isn’t exceeded.

Just like the opposite 2014 Aquatimers, the Deep two supplied with the IWC SafeDive System is the proprietary combination internal/external rotating edge. The external titanium edge rotates each ways then, however once turned counter-clockwise it moves the inner temporal order edge in one-minute increments. Between zero and fifteen there are blue one-minute markings, with extra bright white markings in 5 minute increments and a triangle at zero. The hands of the Aquatimer Deep Two are super luminal with distinctive red edges and the hacking centre seconds hand has a matching red and white arrow at the tip. At nine o’clock on this Aquatimer Deep Two watch, it is the intake system for the gauge that uses water pressure to calculate the acceptable depth.

The new 2014 IWC Aquatimer collection contains a lot of discreet look with a lot of subdued colours than the previous generation. After all, IWC diver’s watches are not any longer reserved solely for underwater use however are typically found in expeditions on physical object, at gala occasions or perhaps within the workplace. The watches are a lot of useful and safer, and even a lot of Aquatimer models are currently fitted with IWC-manufactured movements. The Aquatimer Deep two are on the market late 2014 and is priced at $19,100.

IWC Aquatimer Deep Two is equipped with mechanical water meter and diving depth limit induction display device, and its 30110 movement is totally divided with bathysonde, even though the movement is stopping operating, the bathysonde can still operate with the waterproof of 120 meters.
