“You, my Royal Oak, are the masterpiece of my career and the magical realisation of a childhood dream”Gérald Genta, designer
The real revolution of Audemars Piguetcame with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, the first high-end sports watch made of steel. The very first Royal Oak, presented in 1972, featured a guilloch dial, an octagonal bezel secured with eight hexagonal screws, and an integrated bracelet, which are the same characteristics that can be found on the latest edition of these luxury sports watches. Designed by Gerald Genta, the Royal Oak became one of the brand’s trademarks.
The most successful watch in the Royal Oak series is arguably the Royal Oak Offshore. Despite there being a vast number of collections released, the Offshore has proven time and time again to be everything that sports watch collectors are seeking. It was actually designed by a 22-year-old named Emmanuel Gueit. Created in 1992, it was released for the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak.Tucked inside a bold 42mm case, the Royal Oak Offshore became the watch that started the trend of wearing oversized timepieces. It capitalized on the futuristic appearance noted in the original Royal Oak, and although it’s not considered oversized today, at the time of the release, 42mm was gigantic. Made from a blend of carbon and rubber, it was designed with the adrenaline junkie in mind.
Audemars Piguet offers a variety of luxury timepieces to suit all tastes, from men’s to women’s watch styles. Though many have the classic analog watch design, others are also available with a more modern dial design to include perpetual calendars and minute readers. Although there are of course many watch companies, Audemars Piguet is certainly one of quality and class. Many celebrities have been spotted wearing one of these luxury Swiss timepieces, including Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Harry Styles,ect.
This new replica Audemars Piguet watch adapt gems unique design. The swirling diamond pattern spreads from the dial and bezel to watch bracelets. Swirling mosaics seems random design. Actually each position has a precise consideration and perfect fusion of the unique design style of Royal-Oak series. And selection of diamond for this watch is not only as decorative elements, but also is considered from the perspective of the overall design which is in harmony with the bracelets, dial and bezels together, so this watch really presents a unified style.

Introduced in 1963, the Rolex Daytona was designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers. With its highly reliable chronograph and bezel with tachymetre scale, it allows drivers to perfectly measure average speeds up to 400 kilometres or miles per hour, as they choose. An icon eternally joined in name and function to the high‑performance world of motor sport.”Daytona”is a memorable name which has created a legend before it has a thousand and one links with Rolex basic classic style. It all started in the early 20th Century in Florida, the United Daytona beach. With straight terrain, this vast hard sand zone stretches over 35 kilometers (22 miles). The natural circuit of the beach at the entrance to the beach is extraordinary, attracting many people from all over Europe and the United States to compete with other racing-drivers. Why so many racers choose Replica Rolex Daytona?
Daytona’s fame spread all over the world because of car racing and won the reputation”the speed capital of the world”.In March 1935, Daytona, the British driver Malcolm Campbell hit an average of 445 kilometers per hour which is the highest speed record at that time. Significantly, this “speed king” had been wearing the Rolex oyster watch from the beginning of 1930s. For half a century, COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA has created its own legend. Every year in January, the drivers came to this race. Many of the world’s excellent endurance racing drivers believe that Rolex COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA is still the highest honor.
In order to maintain the beauty of the pink gold watches, Rolex created an exclusive 18 ct pink gold alloy cast in its own foundry: Everose gold. Introduced in 2005, 18 ct Everose is used on many Rolex models. It is worth noting the ivory dial. The central sweep seconds hand allows an accurate reading of 1/8 second, while the two counters on the dial display the lapsed time in hours and minutes. Drivers can accurately map out their track times and tactics. The Daytona’s chronograph functions are activated by pushers that screw down like the winding crown when they are not in use, guaranteeing waterproofness to 100 metres.
The Cosmograph Daytona is equipped with calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. This model is equipped with Rolex proprietary Parachrom hairspring which offers greater resistance to shocks and to temperature variations. There is no doubt; the movement supports the functions excellently.
Panerai is really a great brand that attracts a type of customer that’s looking for a high end timepiece that is a bit out of the ordinary. Since I saw Panerai first time, I have been fascinated with these watches and their history. These watches of Panerai are surely among the most sophisticated and luxurious pieces that you can find.
Founded in 1860 in Florence by Giovanni Panerai, the company of Panerai later became the official supplier of the Royal Italian Navy and expanded to building precision instruments. Its watches are made in Neuchâtel, Switzerland with some movements designed and manufactured in-house. The Radiomir and Luminor watches are among the most famous collections of Panerai, which are used by Italian commando frogmen, who relied upon their Panerai wristwatches to execute the sinking of Allied naval vessels in WWII. And the Luminor Marinas is my most favorite Panerai model which usually feature a 44-mm wide case and the recognizable trademark crown guard that makes Panerais stand out in the horological crowd.
Top grade replica Panerai watchesare exactly identical to the real pieces. Those manufacturers do not overlook any of the details of the watches, even the smallest ones, and thus the result is the replica watches that are second to none. So when there are replica watches that both fantastic and cheap, why should you still stick to the expensive originals beyond your reach? So you’re ready to buy your first Panerai watch, but can’t decide which one to get? You’re not alone. Even though Panerai watches are very popular, they have many variations that make the brand a trickier purchase for a first time buyer. Next I will introduce the latest and coolest Panerai watches for you.
Panerai has been involved with the sport of yacht racing for quite some time now. To celebrate this partnership further, they have released three NEW Flyback chronograph models, PAM00652, PAM00653 and PAM00654. Panerai PAM00652 has the iconic 1950 case and is 47mm in case diameter and made out of titanium. This has central chronograph seconds and minute hands. This watch will retail for $17,200. The other two models pictured above are similar to the first one but are made out of stainless steel and are 44 mm in case diameter. These watches have exactly the same case and movement and perform the same functions. However they look completely different from one another. They are both are powered by Panerai’s in-house, self-winding, three-day movement, the caliber P.9100. Both watches will retail for $12,300.
There are many watches inspired directly by a particular object, idea, or even historical event. They often aim to represent some intangible notion, and some are successful while others come off as kitschy. So, my interest was at least piqued to learn of a watch inspired by bank vaults, since that is a theme we don’t encounter too often. Founded in 2013 by Mark Schwarz and Philippe Schmid with a singular focus to create their dream watch, Vault has, now in 2017, introduced their fist product, and its design is intended as an homage to a bank vault’s time lock mechanism.
There are two parts to understanding what the Vault V1 watch is all about, and one is the way in which the time is displayed, while the other is how the time is set. What you first need to know is that setting the minutes on the Vault V1 watch involves rotating the full movement itself, while setting the hours involves rotating the dial itself.
Before we get into how it all works, though, let’s begin with how to read the time. The easy part is that the minutes are displayed with a traditional minute hand. The hours are displayed on gears and indicated by a sapphire crystal above them that is partially smoked, with a stark line fading gradually in a circle to transparent. The line between the smoked and transparent parts is what is used to indicate the hour. Did you notice that the hour markers are not in their usual positions in the pictures? We’ll return to why that is, if you haven’t already guessed.
First, much like regular time-setting on a watch, the crown pulls out to different positions, but here they are for setting the hours and minutes separately, along with a “locked” mode for when it is all the way pushed in. The current mode is helpfully indicated in the lower right of the dial with H, M, and L.
What is particularly unusual on the Vault V1 is that when you set the minutes, the entire movement rotates with the minute hand – and you can observe this through the open dial, with the movement continuing to operate as it turns. The sapphire disc for indicating the hours also turns with the movement when setting the minutes. …Wait, it will all make sense shortly!
Next, to set the hours, one pulls the crown to the H position. Then, turning the crown will rotate the entire dial while the numerals displayed on gears also rotate to remain facing upright – the brand calls this system “hour gear transmission.” This means that each time you set the watch, the hour indices will be in a different position. Vault talks a lot about how this changes the face of the watch each time it is set for a unique look. Ok, I lied when I said it would all make sense.
It seems like there could hardly be a more complex and convoluted way of doing something as relatively simple as indicating the current hours and minutes – welcome to haute horology! And because the hours are not indicated in their standard positions and will change each time you set it, this means you will actually have to “read” the watch whenever you want to know the time. There is apparently a lot of philosophy about how this represents man’s relationship to and perception of time behind Vault’s concept. But, really, I think it’s all about showing what is possible and trying to do something that people haven’t seen before – which gets harder with each novel, alternative time-telling contraption the watch industry turns out.
Vault claims that what they call an “autonomous movement” represents the first time for such technology to be used in a timepiece. What does that mean? The movement is “autonomous,” it would seem, in the sense that the crown does not directly interact with the movement’s operations.
The Vault V1 is powered by the V01 automatic movement which is produced exclusively for the brand by independent watchmaker Andreas Strehler and his company UhrTeil AG, so we should expect it to be attractive with a fine quality of finishing. It also appears that the watch does not offer hand-winding and can only be wound via the automatic rotor. Though the Vault V1 is closed at the back, you obviously still get a good look at the movement from the dial side, and there is a lot of depth, motion (especially when setting the time), and visual interest to appreciate. The V01 beats at 21,600bph and delivers a healthy 50-hour power reserve.
I’m actually impressed with the Vault V1 and think it comes off as genuine and original. With a 39mm x 46.7mm squarish case in steel, titanium, 18k rose gold, 18k white gold, or platinum, the Vault V1 is appealing in a modern art-deco sort of fashion that really speaks to my tastes. Honestly, I can’t say how closely the design is related in function to that of a bank vault’s time lock device, but looking at something like the image below, the inspiration is clear. And the strength and security of a bank vault with its complicated mechanism is certainly a nice association for a product like this to have.
The Vault V1 is just the beginning for the brand and an ambitious one at that. It is limited to a run of only 8 pieces and paired with a black rubber strap. Pricing begins at 50,000 CHF for the steel and titanium versions, and will go up from there, of course, for bespoke and precious metal versions. vault.com
