What we regularly miss, in light of the fact that the data once in a while exists, are the firsthand discernments that existed replica watches around a brand or model amid its real generation date.

In addition, diving watch is nowadays the most fashionable resort lifestyle synonymous. Even if you do not really use it to dive, you can also use it to play it cool.

But this alone stocky bold styling, it has been enough to attract the eye. Members large Pei lovers, want to challenge your own wrist?

The automatic P.9010 calibre, entirely developed and created in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, has central hour and minute hands, the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. The energy necessary to accumulate a power reserve of three days – the basic standard for Panerai in-house movements – is stored in two spring barrels whose springs are wound by an oscillating weight operating in both directions. Consisting of 200 components including 31 jewels, the calibre has a diameter of 13¾ lignes and it is 6 mm thick. The balance, fixed by a bridge with twin supports, oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz).

In the P.9010 calibre the hours can be conveniently adjusted without interfering with the movement of the minute hand, thanks to the device which directly moves only the relative hand in jumps of one hour forward or backwards. This function is very useful when changing time zones or moving between summer time and winter time, and conveniently the adjustment of the hour hand is automatically connected to the date indicator.

The History of TAG Heuer

Image result for Tag Heuer

Tag Heuer is a heavy hitter when it comes to the evolution of the modern chronograph. The brand is synonymous for racing sports and adventurous bravado fused together. If you are looking for watches that’re robust, functional, and never fail to impress, TAG Heuer watches may just be the one for you.

When talking about the history of TAG Heuer, you first have to talk about Heuer. The Heuer brand was founded in 1860 by Eduoard Heuer. In just a few short years, Heuer filed an impressive number of patents. During 1869, they secured the patent for a keyless, crown-operated winding system for pocket watches. In 1882, they patented the company’s first chronograph. And in 1887, they received one of their most notable patents for an oscillating pinion mechanism. Major watchmakers still use this technology. That same year, Edouard’s son Jules-Edouard joined the family business. Sadly, founder Edouard Heuer passed away five years later, in 1892.

Jules-Edouard proudly carried on his father’s work. In 1895, the company filed yet another patent for its first water resistant case. Then, in 1911, Heuer patented their first dashboard chronograph called Time of Trip. This patent is particularly notable because it sparked the longstanding relationship between Heuer and the automobile and airline industries. The company’s growth allowed for increased research and development, which ultimately led to their next big breakthrough. In 1916, Heuer released the Micrograph, the most accurate stopwatch at the time.

For the next few decades, the brand continued to focus on their close relationship with the automobile and airline industries. In the 1930’s, they began producing chronographs specially designed for pilots. Then, in 1933, Heuer introduced another dashboard instrument for automobiles and planes: the Autavia. This clock featured a timer function and could run for an impressive eight days without being wound.

The 1950’s also marked the beginning of Heur’s partnership with Abercrombie & Fitch. They produced exclusive versions of the Seafarer and Auto-Graph for the brand, with special dials and unique color patterns.

In 1962, Heuer made history as the first Swiss watchmaker to enter outer space. On February 20th, John Glenn made the first American space flight with a Heuer stopwatch on his wrist.

A year later in 1963, Heuer launched one of its now iconic models: the Carrera chronograph. Then, in 1969, the brand made one of its most groundbreaking horological advancements. Heuer had discretely been working on a top secret effort called Project 99 in tandem with Breitling, Buren, and Dubois-Depraz. Together, they invented the first self-winding chronograph movement, called the Chronomatic. They used it in three wrist chronograph models: the Carrera, the Autavia, and the brand new Monaco.

IWC Ingenieur replica 323310

Today, the main role is a vintage IWC Ingenieur replica, it is Laureus IW323310, which is the best replica Ingenieur which Noob factory has ever made. Although it belongs to vintage Ingenieur series, its design is full of modern watch making elements. Besides Portofino, I think Ingenieur IW323310 will be the best watch to fit your business suits. It will perfectly act as a casual watch. Modern case design with vintage dial, the replica gives you two different visual effect.

Noob factory has released several versions for this Ingenieur, and the one here is going to be introduced is the best version. With clone Cal.80111 movement, which is closest to genuine design. Whether engravings, shock absorber, balance wheel or black screws, the movement is cloned according to original IWC 80111 calibre. At the same time, auto rotor uses bronze as main material and has sunray patterns being polished, the surface of auto rotor has been plated with aluminum-magnesium alloy. In a word, the factory watch masters spent a lot of time in cloning 80111 movement and finally achieved perfection, it is the most beautifully polished auto rotor I have ever seen on replica watches.

The case, which uses polishing on bezel, is 42.5mm in diameter and 14mm thick. The case back is solid with engravings, there are grooves on the edge of the back, you need a special tool to open the case back. Actually the highlights of the replica all lie in its dial, which exactly refects its vintage features. First, raised silver hour markers have a tip end, they are different from hour marker design of modern Ingenieur. There are 12 small lume dots next to each hour marker, these lume round dots use original SuperLume C1 material, so they could offer a strong and durable green light in the dark. Central vintage second hand has a red tip, which looks beautiful and increases the readability of the dial, which is blue with sunray patterns.

Ok, this is all review of replica IWC Ingenieur. I believe you guys have a basic understanding of it. With superior quality polishing on case and genuine leather strap, the replica brings a good wearing comfort, featuring an unique vintage Ingenieur dial, it gives you extraordinary visual enjoyment, driven by modified clone 80111 movement, the watch could run more accurately and stably.

Olympic Games 2020 Speedmaster

Image result for Olympic Games 2020 Speedmaster

The watches are limited to 2020 pieces each and can be bought in a set of all 5. This set will be limited to 55 pieces. As you can see, three of the five watches are in stainless steel and the other two have a bit of gold added to them. In our opinion, it was about time that bi-colour returned to the Moonwatch. The last time was with the Apollo 15 35th Anniversary edition that came out in gold and steel, 1971 pieces only (in 2006). It is clear that Omega took the inspiration for these 5 limited edition models for the Olympic Games in 2020 from existing (or discontinued models). The aforementioned Apollo 15 35th anniversary edition is one of them, but what to think of the Mitsukoshi/Apollo 11 (2004) edition with the Panda dial, or the blue and white dial version that looks like the Gemini IV limited edition from 2005? The red bezel version and the green bezel version seem to be based on the recently released Master Chronometer Moonphase models. Perhaps these can be seen as the most original two versions of the pack. The green bezel Speedmaster uses 18-carat Sedna gold where the black bezel Speedmaster has 18-carat yellow gold for its pushers, crown and bezel. The hands, hour markers and sub-counter rings are also made of gold on both watches.

All five watches have ‘Speedmaster’ printed in red on the dial. The engraved case back is also the same for all watches, except for those thatcome in the set of 55 pieces only. Also, these watches have the same specifications as the regular Moonwatch, so a 42mm case with the hand-wound Lemania based calibre 1861 movement.

As you probably know, in 2020 the Olympic Games will take place in Japan and of course Omega will be the official timekeeper. In celebratio of the 2 year countdown towards these games, Omega introduced a special collection of Speedmaster. They’re inspired by the colours of the iconic Olympic Rings, similar to the set of 5 Seamasters for the 2018 Winter Games.

Cartier Santos Watch Review: The New For 2018 Model

Image result for cartier santos watch

I reviewed the Cartier Santos 100 here on aBlogtoWatch a couple years ago and still feel very fondly about that model – but more on that later. Today my focus is on the new “Santos de Cartier” Large Model that Cartier released in early 2018. Cartier wanted to make sure the new Santos watches would hit stores soon after the debut (a practice not very common in the watch industry) and early reports are that sales of the new Santos models are strong. The specific model I reviewed is the Cartier Santos reference W2SA0006, which has a two-tone steel and 18k yellow gold case as well as the larger 39.8mm case (Cartier also produces a smaller 35.1mm wide version of the new Santos).

There is a lot to say about the Cartier Santos for 2018 and I discussed a lot of the overall collection details and highlights on this article here. In that article you’ll read more about the available models (and their prices) as well as what Cartier is trying to accomplish with the new Santos collection. This review will build on my discussion of the Santos in previous articles such as the above linked-to Santos 100 review.

Let me sum up the major highlights of the new for 2018 Cartier Santos watches. First, the cases and bracelets are significantly thinner and for some people, probably more comfortable to wear (as compared to the previous generation large-case models, like the Santos 100 Large). There is also the new bezel design which isn’t a huge element, but it does offer a rather distinctive look for the new models. The case contains an in-house automatic movement, and of course the biggest news is the quick release (“QuickSwitch” as Cartier calls it) bracelet/strap system, as well as the tool-less link changing system that lets you adjust the bracelet quickly, easily, and without tools (assuming you currently have fingernails).

My overall impressions of the Cartier Santos Large Model are very good. Some also say that the smaller model can also be worn as a men’s watch, but I’m pretty sure that in the West, the vast majority of 35.1mm wide Santos models will be sold to women. Aside from the size, the primary difference between the larger and smaller Santos model is the placement of a date window display (which exists on the larger model but not on the smaller model).

LONGINES LEGEND DIVER IN BLACK REF. L3.774.2.50.9

Image result for LONGINES LEGEND DIVER IN BLACK REF. L3.774.2.50.9

This Longines Legend Diver in Black (reference L3.774.2.50.9) is just like the other Legend Divers, part of the heritage collection. A collection that is only a small portion of Longines annual production of an estimated 1.3 million pieces. A huge number, but the number of different references from Longines is also quite impressive. The heritage collection is mainly aimed at enthusiasts and collectors, that’s one of the reasons why our Longines coverage is mainly based on those watches.If there’s one modern Longines that left me with a huge impression, it is the Longines Legend Diver. Preferably the version without date, but CEO Walter von Känel decided otherwise a few years ago and discontinued the non-date model. This year, Longines added some variation to the Legend Diver, with this all black version. Meet the Longines Legend Diver in Black.

The Longines Legend Diver in Black uses the Longines calibre L888.2 movement, which is based on the ETA A31.L01 movement. This movement ticks at 25,200vph, which is a rather unusual frequency, but Omega’s Co-Axial calibres also use this speed for example. The movement has a power reserve of 64 hours. This ETA A31.L01 is based on the well-known and much praised ETA 2892-A2 movement that you’re most probably familiar with. They slowed down the beat rate of this movement, and extended the power reserve. This ETA A31.L01 is exclusively manufactured and produced for Longines, to be used as their L888.2 movement. Since 1984 or so, Longines doesn’t produce movements in-house anymore and everything is being supplied by ETA (that just like Longines also belongs to Swatch Group). Although Longines is pretty clear (read our interview with CEO Walter von Känel here) that they don’t aim to become a manufacturer of movements again, but rather focus on being able to offer affordable (mechanical) watches, it is quite interesting that they do seem to shift towards the use of movements exclusively produced for them. Their introduction of the VHP movements and the chronometer certified Record collection also shows that Longines feels it has become more important for the consumer that a movement should be something special.
