ROLEX DAY-DATE 40 WATCH HANDS-ON

Related image

Rolex pairs this meteorite dial with baguette-cut diamond hour markers, making this a ritzy yet classy timepiece. Adding decorative elements, like diamonds, makes it challenging to retain the masculine identity of a watch, but the subtlety of the diamond hour markers makes it work. Of course, the dial has windows for the day of the week at 12 o’clock and for the date at 3 o’clock. In fact, when the Rolex Day-Date watch was originally introduced in 1956, it was the first wristwatch that had a dial which indicated both the date and the day of the week.

Baselworld 2018, Rolex introduced a new meteorite dial option for the 18ct white gold version of the Day-Date 40 (reference 228239). Rolex currently sells a version of the Cosmograph Daytona chronograph with a meteorite dial, but the natural material is otherwise uncommon in today’s collection of Rolex watches. Given its organic and metallic crystalline aesthetic, meteorite has been appreciated as a dial material for decades—that it comes from outer space adds another dimension of value as well.

I found the meteorite dial to be a beautiful and compelling addition to the Rolex Day-Date 40 theme. Rolex uses only top quality materials, especially for its higher-end collections, so you get a fantastic piece of natural material that is both legible and useful. One of the appeals of this watch is the accumulation of rare materials in one product, as it combines 18ct white gold, diamonds, and meteorite, all of which are considered precious materials. While the actual market scarcity of these materials can be debated, one of the purposes of integrating these materials together is to enhance the inherent worth of the watch.

At 40mm wide and not particularly thick, the Day-Date 40 ref. 228239 wears very nicely. One of the reasons that the watch is visually smaller than it is in reality is because the width of the bracelet seems to shrink the size of the case, which is in accordance with Rolex’s desire to emphasize the President bracelet. Very comfortable on the wrist, the rounded three-link-style bracelet benefits from having a “hidden” deployant clasp for a uniform look from end to end.

White gold is a very luxurious material, but it often doesn’t appear to be more than steel. The added weight of white gold means that it wears differently from steel, but unless you happen to be around a watch enthusiast who knows that the Day-Date 40 only comes in gold and platinum, the watch could easily be mistaken for stainless steel. With diamonds on the eye-catching meteorite dial, this particular Rolex President toes the line between extravagance and subtlety, further adding to its personality and character.

PATEK PHILIPPE NAUTILUS 5711/1A-010

Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-010 Watch Review Mens Watches Wrist Time Reviews

What was Patek Philippe aiming to achieve with the Nautilus? When it was introduced in 1976, it was supposed to be a maritime lifestyle luxury watch for wealthy men and their family members who spent time boating or living by the sea. Genta pulled in design cues such as boat portholes for the design of the bezel and flanks, and the horizontal lines on the dial are meant to resemble teak wood boat decks. Not only was the starkly contrasting brushed and polished finishing on the case common practice for other watches produced at the time, but it was also evocative of the metal hardware of a yacht deck.

At the time Genta became involved in design, product design for watches was just as significant as product design of, for instance, automobiles. Everyone had them and used them, so because of the wide variety of these items, people were genuinely interested in unique designs. Thus, Genta was designing something that would be both worn and seen by everyone. In this case, the people wearing those watches were the rich elite that comprised Patek Philippe’s consumer base in the 1970s, and it’s the same demographic, albeit in larger numbers, that still wear Patek Philippe today.

My conclusion is that the Patek Philippe Nautilus is an excellent example of a men’s bracelet jewelry that just so happens to have a watch attached to it. The steel construction of the case and bracelet prevents it from being overly pretentious as well. Not only does a very respected watchmaker give the design the finishing and construction it deserves, but it also equips the watch with the finest non-complicated mechanical movements. Unlike Rolex, the movement isn’t hidden behind a solid caseback. Rather, Patek Philippe wants Nautilus owners to strut and show off that shiny in-house made caliber 324 S C through the sapphire crystal caseback.

In my opinion, the Nautilus is a perfectly made, modern sports watch for guys who are equally unlikely to wear their watch into the water today as they were in the past. Patek Philippe has maintained the same Nautilus archetype, while continuing to make it a more efficient and reliable timekeeper. In a way, there is no real 21st century Nautilus, and I’m not sure there ever will be. Despite much of its former creative glory, Patek Philippe today is an extremely conservative brand. I would love to see a Nautilus 2.0 (so to say) that transports the concept of a luxury sports lifestyle watch into the modern era. It would definitely be of Patek Philippe quality, but it would be more representative of contemporary values and aesthetics. Would that happen? Could that happen? If Patek Philippe chooses to take on that project, they could create something very cool.

BLANCPAIN FIFTY FATHOMS

45mm wide and with an in-house movement, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Automatique 5015 (aBlogtoWatch review here) collection has an available steel model with a matching bracelet and black dial that is thematically in the same category at the Rolex Submariner. It is expensive, but it is also well-made and beautiful.

Top 10 Watch Alternatives To The Rolex Submariner ABTW Editors' Lists Mens Watches

How it compares: With a heritage similar to the Rolex Submariner in terms of origin and purpose, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms currently exists a bit higher on the price ladder than the Rolex Submariner, even though it arguably isn’t a “better” watch. The Fifty Fathoms does have an attractive curved sapphire crystal over the bezel (versus ceramic), and which you prefer is a matter of taste. Blancpain’s has a different look that some say is a bit more on the elegant versus “tool watch” side. The Blancpain is also the more original choice with a higher price premium and far fewer of them out there.

The lauded Rolex Submariner is one of the most popular luxury watches in the world. Easily the most popular steel-cased (or otherwise) luxury diving watch, the Rolex Submariner sets the bar in many ways when it comes to timepieces of its type, at its price point. We have reviewed the Rolex Submariner here, offered a long-term review of the Rolex Submariner No Date watch here, and even compared the Rolex Submariner to its “cousin” watch the Tudor Heritage Black Bay here. With that said, the Rolex Submariner isn’t for everyone, and a lot of people who already have a Rolex Submariner still like the genre of high-end steel sports diving watches and are interested in other watches like it.

Not only is there a vast underworld of fake Rolex watches, there are lots of “lookalike” timepieces out there which merely seek to emulate the look and feel of a Rolex Submariner for the benefit of another brand. Those aren’t the types of watches I’ll be talking about in this list. Oh, and I’d also like to say that all of the watches included in this top 10 list are being currently produced at the time of this article’s writing – but it is possible to find other stuff out there that is no longer in production.

Rolex Day-Date is an Excellent choice for those who want to have a Luxurious and Elegant wristwatch

Rolex is a famous Swiss watch manufacturer, highly valued for its top notch designer wristwatches. The company dates back to November 15, 1915, when it was formally founded and registered. It was founded 10 years after Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis begun to bring into England Herman Aegler’s Swiss movements for the Dennison watchcases. Over the time, Rolex has come up and made numerous wristwatch models, for instance the Rolex Day-Date I and II.

The Day-Date II is a Rolex model released in the first decade of the 21st century. It is similar to the initial Day-Date, the very first Rolex wristwatch model to display the date and day. The Day-Date II is slightly larger than the first one, allowing an improved view of the date.

Without any doubts, the Rolex Day-Date is an excellent choice for those who want to have a luxurious and elegant wristwatch. Although it is preferable for people to buy original watches, that is not always possible because of their high price. Luckily, a replica watch can always be bought, without having to reveal that it is actually a Rolex replica.Luxury rolex watches store

Swiss Luxury watch Manufacturer has produced Offline Campaign of the Brand–IWC

Image result for iwc watches

IWC Schaffhausen will kick off a worldwide omnichannel advertising campaign with actor, director (and blue-eyed dreamboat) Bradley Cooper. This is the first time that the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer has produced such an extensive on and offline campaign with a single ambassador as the face of the brand. Shot in the searing desert outside Los Angeles, the campaign ticks all the boxes in regard to mythologised modern masculinity – loud motorbikes, fast aeroplanes, searing heat and vintage leather.

The campaign and the mood underscores IWC’s appeal to free-spirited individuals who have no need for borders or limits and are eager to take on life’s challenges. With the Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Le Petit Prince”, the advertisements also feature one of the most iconic timepieces from the Schaffhausen-based company.

Bradley Cooper is, quite understandably, thrilled with results of this partnership with IWC: “I have been wearing IWC watches for the past 15 years. When this collaboration was proposed and the idea of the campaign came up, it made sense and I was excited by the creative. I was happy to help bring Christoph’s vision to life.”

With a strong personality and character traits such as a pioneering spirit, confidence and vitality, Cooper perfectly embodies IWC’s core values. “With this campaign, we continue to develop the emotional storytelling around our brand. We could not have imagined a better partner than Bradley to present our high-quality mechanical timepieces, such as our Pilot’s Watches, to a growing and global audience,” explains Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.

The Latest Rolex Explorer II equipped with the 42mm watchcase

Image result for Rolex Explorer II

Since 1971, Rolex Explorer II began to travel around the world, attending countless expeditions. Its 24 hours needles can let speleologists and polar explorers distinguish day and night easily, which is especially valuable. The latest Rolex Explorer II equipped with the 42mm watchcase, which obviously be the perfect equipment for explorers challenge the limit.The arrow on the 216570 is larger and the tip has a point which extends out to the minute markers, whereas the red hand on the 16570 was longer and smaller. Another reason why the new 24-hour hand is so appealing is that the entire hand is colored orange, but the older model only featured a red shaft with a black point. The orange color is an homage to the original Explorer II which was launched in 1971.

Authentic Rolex Explorer II 216570 Orange Baselworld 2011 WatchIt’s finally here. The timepiece we’ve all been waiting for since Baselworld 2011. The new Rolex Explorer II (model 216570) has finally hit stores in the United States and it is as amazing as it looked behind the display case in Basel.

The big change with this new version of the classic Rolex offering is in the size. This time around, the Explorer II has been modernized with a slightly larger 904L stainless steel case. Now stretched out to a 42mm diameter (45mm including the crown), the 216570 rests comfortably on the wrist without weighing your arm down. The thickness or height of the case is 12mm. And although it has been beefed up to an XL, the design still maintains the traditional satin brushed lugs and polished sides. The new bracelet is a heavy duty stainless steel Oysterlock featuring the 5mm Easylink extension.

The next big update, and also the first visible difference, is the new orange GMT hand. Other than the size, this is probably the biggest “wow factor” in this new version. The orange hand pops out against the white or black dial, and matches so nicely with the Explorer II font. The hands on the new 216570 are larger than the older 16570 and hold more lume for a clearer view at night. The lume is Rolex Chromalight that is claimed to last up to 8 hours after a full charge. We have not tested this, but it does seem to last longer than the 16570’s green lume which glows much brighter at first.The updated Explorer II still has a fixed stainless steel bezel with 24 hour markers. The rehault has “RolexRolex” etched on the inside with a serial number at 6:00 and the Rolex crown logo at 12:00.Unlike the newer GMT Master II (116710) which was bumped up to a Triplock crown, the new Explorer II still keeps water and dust out with the protection of the Twinlock screw-down crown and carries a water resistance of 100m or 330ft.

Now on to the engine of this baby! The Explorer II is powered by the newest Rolex caliber 3187 (in-house of course) automatic movement. Even though the watch is capable of displaying two separate time zones, time setting is a cinch with the rapid setting GMT hand.

 

Rolex Cellini Moonphase Ref. 50535

Rolex Cellini Moonphase Ref. 50535

Ask a watch buff to name his favourite Rolex and you are likely to be inundated by the usual roll-call of Submariners, Day-Dates or Daytonas. So what to make of the classically poised Cellini?Explore the Rolex men’s watch collection of prestigious, high precision timepieces. Rolex offers a wide assortment of classic and Professional watch models for men to suit any wrist. Discover the broad selection of Rolex watches for men: a perfect combination of style and functionality.

The collection, which is recognised by its more formal aesthetic, compared to the rest of Rolex’s tool-watch repertoire, is usually – and unfairly – overlooked. Named after the famed renaissance sculptor, Benvenuto Cellini, the first Cellini was unveiled in 1970 at Baselworld, and subsequently relaunched in 2014, anchoring Rolex’s dress watch offerings ever since.

Although most Cellini models are distinguished by a sense of quiet luxury, there are a few exceptions that tease with a bit more flaunt factor, such as this Cellini Moonphase from 2017.

Embellished with all the aforementioned classic features that make the watch such a gorgeous dress watch, the Cellini Moonphase also boasts a white lacquer dial with a blue enamelled disc at six o’clock. The moonphase displays shows the full moon and the new moon, the former depicted by a meteorite appliqué and the latter by a silver ring. A date ring on the outer dial completes the look, elevating the poetic complication with a highly practical display.

The Cellini Moonphase may appear dapper and gentlemanly, clad in a not-too-large 39mm Everose gold case that pairs perfectly with a well-cut shirt, but its performance is nothing to scoff at. The watch is driven by an automatic movement that bears Rolex’s Superlative Chronometry certification, which deviates at just -2/+2 seconds per day and comes with international five-year warranty.

Bearing a classic round case, svelte dauphine hands and slim baton indexes, the Cellini is hardly the most outlandish Rolex you will buy – but it certainly ranks among the brand’s most elegant creations. And while Rolex’s design signatures abound (if you know where to look), such as the fluted bezel, and the unmissable logos at 12 o’clock and on the crown, the Cellini isn’t the sort of Rollie you should be looking at if you were after a status symbol. For everyone else who appreciates discreet luxury, this is a watch that speaks volumes about your taste and confidence.

Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti All Black

“Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti All Black”的图片搜索结果

Based on the Classic Fusion line, both models are 45mm and about 11mm thick. Due to their colors they wear smaller though with the gold being a bit “flashier” of course. The leather strap is done by Berluti, made in the same way as their shoes are produced. They used the company’s emblematic Venezia leather for both nero grigio (black) and tobacco blis (brown) straps. They are soft as butter and extremely comfortable on the wrist. I was a huge fan of the tobacco strap and Gerard was opting for the black version, but we both agreed that the work on those straps is second to none. The most interesting feature however is the fact that Hublot used the same Berluti leather as the straps are made of  to produce the dial for these limited editions. Yes, a watch with a leather dial. I mean we have seen dials made of literally everything from metal, ceramic, enamel, rock, wood, and even canvas (covered metal) but I can’t recall if I’ve ever seen a watch with a leather dial. It is the same aforementioned Venezia leather Berluti uses with their shoes; or in this case the strap of the watch. How sturdy they will be we have no clue yet; time will tell, though.

Limited to 500 pieces, the All Black features a polished and satin finished black ceramic case, sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment, display case back. The watch is water resistant to 50m and has a power reserve of 42 hours. With its monochrome jet-black style, the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti All Black has a nero grigio Venezia handmade strap and Berluti leather dial. It features the Caliber Hublot HUB1100 mechanical, self-winding movement.

The pieces are very interesting and show an extremely high level of craftsmanship both by Hublot and Berluti of course. The watches come with a special box that has all equipment you need to treat the leather, like you would treat your shoes. Both watches are so photogenic and look amazing on the wrist. We do not have retail prices yet and of course when it comes to Hublot you really have to take a deep breath before you look at the tag. However I’d like to say that if you are looking for something truly unique and have the money to buy, in this price range and style the Hublot Classic Fusion models are beautiful contestants to consider.ust like the above-mentioned ceramic black version, the Scritto shares the same physical features. The only difference between the All Black and the Scritto is the case material. Polished and satin finished 18K King gold is the material used with this model and unlike its brother it is only limited to 250 pieces. The strap is carved from Venezia Scritto calf leather that has writings inspired by 18th century calligraphy.

The Rolex Sky-Dweller replica UK

Introduced in 2012, the Rolex Sky-Dweller replica UK enables to make travellers keep track of time at a glance. As a technological timepiece protected by 14 patents, the Sky-Dweller also combines the mechanical sophistication with the ease of use perfectly.

Crafted from the stunning 18K Everose gold, the 42 mm case features the fluted bidirectional rotatable Rolex Ring Command bezel. Thanks to the screw-down case back and watertight crown, the copy Rolex Sky-Dweller 42mm watches are still available at the depth of 100 meters. In addition, the robust Oyster case is fitted with a matching brecelet with flat three-piece links, which is generous and comfortable.

Besides,a fixed inverted red triangle points to the user’s chosen reference time. The 24-hour display on the off-centre disc allows travellers to distinguish daytime hours from night-time hours in the distant time zone.

Although the SKY-DWELLER series has several watches, but that is to say that the three “different”, different colors, different materials, and strap different in the phenotype (triangular crater case, the Roman numerals, etc. ) The same, table diameter (42 mm) the same, the movement (Cal.9001) unchanged, the same function on the basis of these three angles to do some transformation, the table model is not the same. For example, the following three, we carefully scrutinize the following to see what’s different.

This series of models equipped with the movement Cal.9001, because equipped with “the most complex” function, so it is also known as Rolex is by far the most complex movement, and a little regret is that this movement is not back Revealed to everyone to watch. This movement power reserve 72 hours, like many Rolex movement passed the COSC certification, equipped with Paraflex shock absorbers, and high anti-magnetic blue Parachrom springs and so on.
