Breitling Chronomat Automatic GMT

As ever today with watch collectors and aficionados, along with fashion forward men and women throughout the globe. The average size today on most men’s timepieces is approximately 42mm in diameter, while the average size on most women’s watch styles is approximately 37mm in diameter.

The oversized watch trend started in the early part of this century with popular watchmakers TAG Heuer, Invicta, U-Boat and Breitling offering extra-large models for men with cases measuring more than 42mm in diameter and 15mm thick. The trend was soon adapted for women by watchmakers TechnoMarine and Michele, who introduced larger scale women’s watches with chronograph dials and generously oversized cases. Prior to this, most men’s watches averaged 37mm to 39mm diameter in size, while most women’s watches were well under 30mm in diameter in size.

Bold, amply proportioned timepieces for men and women are the focus of attention this week at World of Watches with our Oversized Watches: Go Big Or Go Home Event for 2017 event. Over 250 popular styles are featured in the promotion, including highly-sought after styles from Invicta, Lucien Piccard, Breitling, Michael Kors, TechnoMarine, Raymond Weil, Ingersoll, U-Boat, Glycine, Casio, Luminox and Swiss Legend.

Invicta watches have been at the forefront of the oversized watch movement and the Swiss-made Invicta Reserve Chronograph in stainless steel does not disappoint with a robust 52mm diameter, 22mm thick case in brushed stainless steel, presented on an attractive triple-link bracelet in brushed and polished stainless steel with black ion-plated stainless steel accents on the bracelet, crown and push-piece covers.

The unidirectional rotating stainless steel bezel with a screened black enamel top ring surrounds the black dial with three subdials, date and day windows, luminous skeleton hands and markers. Features include 1/10th of second, small-second and 30-minute countdown timers.Additional features include a scratch resistant Flame Fusion crystal above the dial, a locking screw-down crown and case back for water-resistance to 500 meters or 1,650 feet and premium quartz movement inside.

Rolex President

The Rolex President is noted as the most luxurious of all luxury watches. When the watch was first released to the market in 1956 and named the Rolex Day-Date, it quickly overtook the Rolex DateJust as the brand’s high-end watch model. When President Eisenhower was spotted wearing a Rolex Day-Date in public, the watch was quickly coined the Rolex President.

In the tennis world, the Rolex President is tied to Roger Federer. In fact, as he hoisted his 2012 Wimbledon trophy over his head following his victory over Andy Murray, upon his left wrist was a 41mm Everose Rolex President provided by the Rolex Company. Much like Federer, the Rolex President is a true classic and amazingly precise.

Once again, some of the world’s most influential women wear both the ladies and men’s versions of the President Rolex. Stars associated with the Rolex President include Jennifer Anniston, Hillary Clinton, Victoria Beckham ( she loves her Rose Gold Daytona ), Renee Zellweger, and many more.

New and pre-owned Rolex President Watch models are available in a wide variety of styles. One can choose from the most simple and classic models featuring 18k yellow gold and diamond less face to a platinum model with plenty of diamond bling. Some of the hottest Rolex President models are those with Rose gold, oversized cases and bracelets, and rare vintage models.

Both the Rolex President and the Rolex Daytona are amazing investments in today’s world. Much of their value is based on the high-demand of both precious metals and Rolex watches in general.

No matter which way you stack it, both the Rolex President and the Rolex Daytona are amazingly beautiful watches for wear both on and off the tennis court. Finding the Rolex of your dreams can be an enlightening adventure…full of fascinating history, discovery, and inspiration!

THE NEW ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL AIR-KING WITH BLACK DIAL

The Rolex Air-King, for most of its very long history, was the simplest, least expensive Rolex, but also in some ways the purist’s Rolex. With no date, a 100 m water resistant case, screw-down crown, and chronometer certification, it had every essential attribute that makes a Rolex , with no distractions. In 2014, however, it was discontinued, and its status as the entry level Rolex as well as the purist’s Rolex was taken in 2015 by a new version of the Oyster Perpetual. In 2016, however, the Air-King returned and it is emphatically not your father’s Air-King. With a 40 mm case, new “Superlative Chronometer” certification, complete overhaul to the dial, and the same arrangements for resistance to magnetism as the Milgauss, it may be an Air-King in name, but in the hand and on the wrist, it’s an almost entirely new watch.

The Black dial rolex oyster perpetual air king replica watch ref. 116900 features a dial very similar to that on the Rolex Explorer I ref. 214270 we reviewed here; but this time, including a white minute scale with white numerals. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 features a black glossy dial with applied hour numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 is fitted with the legendary Oyster bracelet with satin-brushed finish. The bracelet features solid links throughout and is fitted with a folding Oysterclasp equipped with the Easylink system that allows the wearer to extend the last link on the bracelet by 5 mm.

The watch is waterproof to 100 meters and its movement is properly protected by its Twinlock screw-down crown and its screwed-in solid case back. The watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal with Rolex’s etched coronet at 6 o’clock. Perhaps the biggest difference of this clasp versus all other modern clasps on Rolex Sports models, is that the Rolex coronet —crown— is this time embossed on bas-relief —low-relief— opposed to being applied and soldered to the clasp.

In fact, it’s such a departure from what we’ve all gotten used to thinking of as an Air-King that I almost wish Rolex had named it something else. The retention of the Air-King name means that you have to struggle a little when you first see pictures of the watch – or when you start wearing it – to see it as its own thing, instead of through the veil of years of exposure to something else that had the same name. What is the same, however – Rolex being pretty good at not totally disrupting the connection of any of its watches to earlier models in particular, and to the basic design codes of the company in particular – is the Air-King logo, as if to reassure the skittish that underneath it all, the Air-King is the same purist’s watch you knew and loved once upon a time.
