10 Things to Know About Omega

Omega is among the best-known luxury watch brands on the planet, and certainly the best known off the planet. From NASA to the Olympics to James Bond, not to mention names like SpeedmasterSeamaster and Constellation, the brand has achieved well-deserved rock-star status among watch enthusiasts everywhere. Here are 10 things you should know about Omega.1. What’s In a Name?

In 1848, Louis Brandt founded the company that would become Omega in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. In 1877, his sons Louis-Paul and César joined him, and the company name was changed to Louis Brandt & Fils.

2. Precision Timing

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, before quartz and GPS, nations and industries depended on precise mechanical timepieces. To encourage improvements in this field, Observatory trials were held. These chronometric marathons tested timepieces of various types for extended periods, and the winners earned substantial publicity and bragging rights. Top manufacturers competed against each other head to head to win these Superbowls of watchmaking. Omega enjoyed tremendous success at these trials, setting numerous world records. At the 1931 Geneva Observatory trials, Omega won First Prize in all six categories. That same year, the company adopted the advertising slogan “Omega – Exact time for life.” That was not hyperbole, but a claim backed up by decades of Observatory trial results.

3. Exploring the Ends of the Earth

Who led the first surface expedition to reach the North Pole? Was it Robert Peary? Perhaps Frederick Cook? How about Ralph Plaisted? Chances are you’re not familiar with the last name, but you should be, because the story of who actually reached the North Pole first via an overland route is a fascinating one. You can read more about it here.

Of the three candidates, Plaisted seems the least likely to claim the title. He was an insurance salesman from Minnesota who was also an avid outdoorsman and snowmobiler. Friends said that if he liked the newly-invented snowmobile so much, he should drive one to the North Pole. And in what sounds like a modern made-for-GoPro story, he did. His party set out on the 412-mile trek from Canada’s Ward Hunt Island, not far from Peary’s start on Ellesmere Island. Riding snowmobiles and armed with Omega Speedmasters and sextants to track their location, they reached their final camp on April 19, 1968, after a 43-day trek. Plaisted’s team was the first to receive independent confirmation that it had actually reached the North Pole, when a U.S. Air Force C-135 flew overhead and confirmed their location.  Today, many historians of polar exploration agree that Plaisted’s party was the first to reach the North Pole by an overland route.

At the other end of the planet, in February, 1990, Arved Fuchs and Reinhold Messner completed what some called the “last possible land journey on earth.” The pair crossed Antarctica on foot. The 1,740-mile journey took 92 days. Enduring temperatures of -40° F and winds exceeding 90 mph, they crossed the Thiel mountains to the South Pole, then continued on to McMurdo Sound on the Ross Sea. Messner’s timekeeper on this journey was an Omega Speedmaster.

4. Speedy in Space

In the autumn of 1962, a group of astronauts including Walter Schirra and Leroy “Gordo” Cooper walked into a watch shop in Houston looking for watches to use on their upcoming Mercury program flights. They left with Omega Speedmasters, and so began Omega’s history with space exploration.

At the end of the Mercury program the following year, astronauts approached NASA Operations Director Deke Slayton and asked to be issued with watches for use during training and flight. Their timing was perfect, because NASA had just hired a group of engineers to evaluate, test and certify equipment for use by astronauts. NASA eventually tested watches provided by Omega, Rolex, and Longines-Wittnauer. The tests were brutal, designed to test watches to destruction. On March 1, 1965, NASA selected the winner, certifying the Speedmaster reference ST105.003 “Flight Qualified for all Manned Space Missions”.

Fast forward to July 21, 1969.Neil Armstrong stepped off the Eagle to become the first human to stand on another world. However he was not wearing his watch. He left it on the Eagle, because the on-board clock was not working. A few minutes later, Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the Moon’s surface, wearing his watch, and the Omega Speedmaster Professional became the first watch to be worn on the Moon.

5. Master of the Sea

Omega launched the Seamaster line in 1948 to celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary. That makes it the oldest line in the current collection, which also includes the Speedmaster, Constellation and De Ville. The Seamaster was loosely based on the watches Omega made for the British military at the end of World War II.

In 1957, Omega launched the Professional range of Seamaster watches with the debut of the Omega Seamaster 300. Jacques Cousteau’s team used the Seamaster 300 during its “Precontinent II” experiments in the Red Sea in the summer of 1963 to prove that divers could live in a submerged saturated gas environment for long periods without adverse effects. Military units, including the British Special Boat Service, chose the Seamaster 300 as their official watch.

As divers lived and worked at ever-greater depths, Omega began work on the famous “Ploprof” (PLOngeur PROFessionel, or “professional diver” in English) Seamaster 600, launched to the public in 1970 after four years of research and testing. During the R&D process, Omega tested the PloProf to 600 meters at the factory, and to 1,000 meters off the coast of Marseilles. In September, 1970, three COMEX divers wore the PloProf for eight days, working in the water four hours per day, at a depth of 250 meters. Cousteau’s divers also used the watches off the coast of Marseille during a set of experiments to test the effects on divers working at depths up to 500 meters. To this day, the Omega Seamaster name is synonymous with professional diving. (For our test of the modern Omega Ploprof, click here.)

6. Olympic Timing

Omega manufactured its first chronograph in 1898, and within 10 years, the timepieces had been used to measure time at more than 16 sporting competitions. After winning 1st place in all six categories at the 1931 Geneva Observatory trials, Omega’s reputation for accuracy led the International Olympic Committee to appoint Omega as the official timekeeper of the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. This was the first time in Olympic history that one brand had been given the responsibility to time all events. The brand supplied 30 high-precision chronographs capable of measuring 1/10th of a second (an Olympics first), all of which had been certified as chronometers by the Observatory at Neuchâtel as well as the National Physics Laboratory in the United States. (The timekeepers at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam used their personal stopwatches.)

Even Omega’s advanced stopwatches did not eliminate Olympic controversy. In five different races, the winner and runner-up were recorded as having the same time. The most famous controversy involved the 100-meter dash and the duel between Ralph Metcalfe and Thomas Edward “Eddie“ Tolan. To the spectators, it appeared that Metcalfe won the race, and the timekeepers’ hand-held stopwatches recorded three times of 10.3 seconds for Metcalfe and two times of 10.3 and one of 10.4 seconds for Tolan. Yet Tolan was declared the winner, in an early Olympic “photo finish.”

A “Chronocinema“ camera filmed the end of each race, and it was used to record times to the nearest 1/100th of a second. The rules at that time stated that the winner was the first runner whose torso completely crossed the finish line, not the one whose torso reached the line first. After reviewing the film, the judges ruled that Tolan had won, fully crossing the line 5/100ths of a second ahead of Metcalfe.

This controversy presaged the need for ever more accurate timers, and methods of determining winners. Omega says that today, timing an Olympics requires several hundred professional timekeepers and data handlers, supported by up to a thousand specially trained local volunteers, all using some 400 tons of equipment, including scoreboards, miles of cables and optical fiber, and state-of-the-art timekeeping and data-handling technology, developed by Omega and adapted to the requirements of each sport.

7. James Bond and Film

Over the years, James Bond has worn a couple of watch brands, but today, none is more closely associated with the storied franchise than Omega. The year 1995 marked two firsts for the famous agent: GoldenEye featured a new James Bond, played by Pierce Brosnan, and the Omega Seamaster debuted on his wrist. Since then, 007 has worn Omega in Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and SPECTRE (in which Bond donned a new Omega Seamaster 300).

When it comes to James Bond wristwatch auction results, Omega Seamaster Planet Oceans hold the top two places. The top watch, used in the filming ofCasino Royale, sold at the 2007 Antiquorum OmegaMania auction for CHF 250,250. A Seamaster Planet Ocean used in the filming of Skyfall sold at Christies’ “50 Years of James Bond” sale in 2012 for CHF 236,473.

Omega timepieces have appeared in many other films, including Up in the Air, Salt, War of the Worlds, The Bounty Hunter, The Right Stuff, Event Horizon, Millennium, Jack Reacher, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Ronin, Seven Years in Tibet, The Omega Man, and My Fellow Americans.

Of course, one of Omega’s most famous starring roles came in Apollo 13. The film documented the mission with the unlucky number that was cut short by an explosion that deprived the spacecraft of most of its oxygen supply and electric power. The film accurately portrays the astronauts wearing Omega Speedmasters, and the key role the Speedmaster played in getting the crew safely back to Earth. Due to the failure of an onboard electric timer, the astronauts relied on their Speedmasters to time critical burns (powering engines on and off). These burns had to be precisely the right duration to get the spacecraft pointed in exactly the right direction so that it could enter the atmosphere without bouncing off or burning up. The Speedmasters performed flawlessly, and the astronauts made it home safely.

8. The Kennedy Connection

Official brand ambassadors aside, Omega has proven a favorite of many world leaders and celebrities. Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev was often photographed wearing his gold Constellation Manhattan. In the aforementioned 1995 film My Fellow Americans, Jack Lemmon plays a former American President. At one point, Lemmon comments on his watch, saying “That’s a Constellation. It was given to me by Gorbachev!”

Pope John Paul II wore an Omega De Ville “Classic.” Elvis Presley was photographed wearing an Omega while in the service, stationed in Germany. Buddy Holly was wearing his white gold ultra-thin Omega when his plane crashed in February, 1959. Ringo Starr wore an Omega Constellation performing on stage with The Beatles.

One of the most famous owners was John F. Kennedy, who wore an Omega at his inauguration as America’s 35th president in January, 1961. The watch had been presented to Kennedy by a friend before the election. The back of the watch bears the inscription “President of the United States John F. Kennedy from his friend Grant.” Today, the watch is housed at the Omega Museum.

9. The Co-Axial Escapement

As we have seen, from its early days, Omega has pursued precision timekeeping. One of the holy grails in this area is a very low-friction escapement. So it is no surprise that when renowned English watchmaker George Daniels developed his now-famous co-axial escapement, Omega would take up the challenge of putting it into large-scale production. Those efforts culminated with the 1999 launch of the Omega Co-Axial Caliber 2500. Omega touted the mechanism as the first practical new watch escapement to be invented in 250 years.

In 2007, Omega launched its proprietary Co-Axial Caliber 8500, citing the escapement’s low friction, mechanical efficiency, and timekeeping performance. The escapement is used in conjunction with a free-sprung balance, the preferred approach for fine watch movements. Omega’s confidence in the Co-Axial is such that every watch delivered with it is a COSC-certified chronometer, and it comes with a four-year warranty.

This image highlights the Co-Axial escapement components.

10. Conquering Magnetism

In 2013, Omega announced the creation of the world’s first movement that is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss, far exceeding the levels of magnetic resistance achieved by any previous movement. Most anti-magnetic watches utilize a soft iron inner case which distributes electromagnetism in such a way that it cancels the effect on the movement. Omega’s approach was to design a movement in which the critical components are fashioned from non-ferrous materials, eliminating the need for an inner case and providing a far greater resistance to magnetic fields. Omega’s approach has the added benefits of allowing a date window on the dial, and a display back. Watches with inner cases can’t offer these attributes because each requires an opening in the inner case. At Baselworld 2015, Omega introduced its own “Master Chronometer” movement, which incorporated its pioneering antimagnetic technology, inside an all-new watch model, the Omega Globemaster. The brand has since gone on to outfit many other models with Master Chronometer movements, including an entirely new line of Seamaster Planet Ocean models in 2016.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Flyback Review – PAM212

It has been awhile since I have done a review. The PAM212 is my third Panerai, behind the PAM005 Base, and the newer PAM312. Originally, I purchased the PAM312 to be my everyday watch, only to find it not what I wanted out of a Panerai. I then picked up this PAM212 used, but got off to a bumpy start. The seller did not actually describe the dings and crystal AR damage very well. And it was just these niggly things that did not sit well, so it was sent to Panerai in Texas for a new crystal, which turned into several other “suggested” services. Long story short, I received it back with a new crystal, new gaskets throughout, and complete refinish. It is truly a stunner now.

I will try to offer as much useful information as possible and keep my personal opinion to a minimum, although I sure it will sneak in.

I will assume most know the history of Panerai so I will not try to cover an already heavily covered topic.

On to the review:

The Case:

The 44mm case is, as the name indicates an homage to the Panerai Cases of the 1950’s versus the square style cases of the current Luminor line. The 212 has beautifully flowing lines, and viewing it from the side, is reminiscent of looking at the profile of the hull of a boat.

On the wrist, the case is very, very comfortable. The shape of the caseback rounds outward slightly from the movement allowing thecase body and to a lesser degree the crown guard and chronograph pushers to sit up off the wrist and not dig into the wrist. There are so many angles at work with this case, from the downward sloping case edges, to the rounded case body. All the lines work to draw the eye onward over the case. The downward sloped case edges flow right into the case lugs. And although the case lugs appear to come to a point, they do not dig in the wrist at any point. The hull like shape of the case body also contrasts nicely against the lugs. Despite the case size, it does fit nicely under a shirt cuff.

The mix of the bushed finish of the case contrasts nicely with the high polish of the bezel, and caseback. This is also when Panerai switched from the square chronograph pushers to the round button style. This particular model was before the introduction of the quick-change strap system, and has the screw in lug bars. Personally, for this particular watch I wanted the screw in lug bars because it completed the heritage of the piece for me.

Without getting into too much of the Panerai history; Panerai had always used movements from a supplier. I appreciated the 1950 case design, it housed an upgraded ETA 7750, and I felt to complete this, for me the screw in lug bars were the final touch. I say this knowing it is only my personal opinion. However, in the later models, the quick-change strap system was introduced and is available.

The case is 44mm wide without crown guard and pushers, 53mm tall, and 17mm thick and offers 150 meters water resistance.

The Bezel:

The Bezel is a very nice high polish. Here I appreciated that the Tachymeter was not printed on the Bezel, but rather was placed safely inside as the chapter ring above the dial. I have found that the Bezel inevitably picks up the occasional ding, no matter how careful one is, and can quickly detract from the usefulness and readability of the Tachymeter scale, if printed on the Bezel.

The Dial and Hands:

The dial is a very attractive matte black, the numbers and indices contrast well with the green of the Luminova. In addition to the Tachymeter, mentioned above in the Bezel section, the minute track is also printed on the outer edge of the dial. The second’s sub dial and the 30-minute chronograph counter are also lumed. However, the lack of a date on the 212’s dial is what I appreciate the most. It leaves the dial uncluttered in my personal opinion. The dial appears slightly smaller than the dial of the PAM005.


The Crystal:

The crystal on the top is a very thick and very domed Sapphire with Anti Reflective coating. The shape of the crystal is also an homage to the 1950’s Panerai design. Just another, in a long list of details that pay tribute to original Panerai designs.

On the back to display the movement is also a sapphire crystal.


The Lume:

The sausage style dial provides plenty of glow. Although not as much as a PAM005 simply because of the amount of lume. The numbers and indices are thinner than on the base model dials. Again, it is a Panerai, so you will not be disappointed with the Lume.

The Movement:

Inside is a highly decorated, and modified ETA 7750 Chronograph that is COSC Certified. I know many have looked down on the ETA 7750being put into a “Luxury” watch, but the fact remains that the Valjoux and the ETA 7750 is, and remains a workhorse of a movement.

And although you can find 7750’s offered in many watches, very few are as finely finished, and modified as this. The off the self ETA 7750comes with 28 Jewels, the Panerai version comes in at 30 Jewels. They even Jeweled the Chronograph Minute Counter Wheel. The Balance Wheel and hairspring have been upgraded.

In addition to the finishing, this movement has had the Flyback function added. The Flyback function allows you to start the chronograph, and then at any point during the timed event to reset and restart the chronograph from 0 with one push of the reset button.

On the wrist, it runs at +2 seconds a day. The power reserve is well over the stated power reserve of 42 hours, and closer to 48.

The Chronograph Function:

The chronograph works very well and crisply. The depression of the start/stop pushers or reset pushers offers the right amount of resistance and produces a satisfying click. Reset of the chronograph is very smooth, as is the reset of the flyback function.


The Strap(s):

The straps, this may be one of the single best features of a Panerai, all the strap options available. Out of the box, the PAM 212 comes with a grayish leather carbon fiber style strap on a deployant clasp, and the second strap is the Panerai rubber strap. Personally, I think the PAM212 works very well on the new style Submersible Rubber strap on a Panerai Tang Buckle. Whichever strap you choose, you can’t go wrong.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Watch Hands-On Hands-On
After learning the excessively long name of this great new watch from Audemars Piguet, I began to wonder what Arnold might sound like pronouncing it. The gUBERnator is back in public life now, but his time as California governor never stopped his passion for watches. 
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Watch Hands-On Hands-On

 

Audemars Piguet and Arnold Schwarzenegger don’t have an official relationship, but AP has made a few limited edition watches for him, including the popular T3 and End of Days watches. Both sold out rather quick. But those two watches don’t wholly define that Austrio-Swiss love affair. It goes deeper… To celebrate the man-watch love Audemars and Arnold shared, AP will release a new limited edition of 1,500 watch set called “The Legacy.” As I mentioned, the full name of the watch will be the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy watch – and it is a beautiful thing. It is also rather massive at 48mm wide.

 

The Legacy actually represents three important things from a design perspective. I will get to that in a moment. I did want to mention that the proceeds of each of the 1,500 watches (profit after costs) will go to Arnold’s “After School All-Stars” charity foundation. The first thing the watch represents are design cues from each of the previous AP for Arnold watches. What comes to mind first are the hour indicators, side treatments, and of course the size.

2011 is really about design subduction and certain key materials. AP lead designer Octavio Garcia kept his promise to me that 2011 would see wild design take a back seat to more simple, timeless designs. We wasn’t kidding. 2011 was like a 180 degree turn from the famous Royal Oak Offshore Grand Prix watch from 2010. As such, the designs focus more on key lines and features, and less about wild details. It is an interesting look, and I think they feel right for the times. AP is still able to have the watches look very much Royal Oak Offshore, and also still look totally modern.

As for materials, The Legacy contains those materials the brand is most serious about this year. Those are ceramic, titanium, and gold. I don’t care what AP says, this watch is bigger than 48mm wide. But that is the official number. Just look at it on my wrist (officially with the implements the case is closer to 55mm wide). The case is also very long from lug to lug. What I love is that the case is made from black ceramic. The ceramic has been finished using some fancy techniques to give it delicately brushed and polished surfaces. The bezel is also ceramic, with elements of titanium screwed on to the side of the case, and used for the caseback, and screws. Last, there is rose gold use for the pushers and part of the crown, as well as for the hour indicators on the dial and the hands. Oh, and the majority of the crown is ceramic. The watch looks awesome, and the detailing is superb.

 

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Watch Hands-On Hands-On

 

Some of the details are neat. One of them is the use of the mega tappiserie texture on the chronograph pusher as well as the dial. I also really like the diamond polishing of the surface of the gold Arabic numeral hour indicators that give them a rainbow color shine. Hints of red on the dial mix with all the colors nicely. This feels like a luxury military watch in essence. The watch mixes black, great, gold, green, and red together. The green is subtle, and is mixed with black and gray. You’ll find it on the fabric strap that I am told is Kevlar. Don’t quote me on this or trying anything funny, but the strap might actually be bullet proof.

【A traveller’s twin-set 】Panerai’s Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT PAM 628 and PAM 657

【A traveller’s twin-set 】Panerai’s Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT PAM 628 and PAM 657

Panerai Radiomir 1940 GMT PAM 628 with hobnail dial and PAM 657 with vertical stripe

PAM 628 and PAM 657

Over the last few years, Panerai has gone to a lot of effort to evolve their offering. The foundation pieces are still there – aggressively simple dive watches that make little effort to belie their military origins, but these days the brand has so much more to offer, from hi-tech tourbillons to slender dress options. These two GMTs, released last year, are the kind of watches that bridge old and new. They’re undeniably Panerai, with the large 45mm Radiomir 1940 case and instantly recognisable combination of super-stylised Arabics and hash marks, but look closer and the changes are obvious too. The dial, for starters. No longer a simple matt sandwich, Panerai has added texture to the mix, with subtle Clous de Paris and vertical stripe finishes to keep things interesting. Likewise, the iconic luminous sandwich construction hasn’t been used here, with the ecru-coloured luminous material applied in the more traditional manner.

PAM 628

As you can see, both these watches display a second time zone via the slender, arrow-tipped hand. This is a 12-hour hand, which is convenient for reading the second time at a glance, but less so if you have problems remembering if it’s day or night in that time zone. Luckily there’s a 24 hour or AM/PM indicator on the dial as well, sitting inconspicuously under the small second hand. PAM 628 adds a power reserve indicator to the mix, and both versions have neatly done date windows at three.

PAM 657

The watches are powered by the robust P.4002 (on the PAM 628) and P.4001 (on the PAM 657). The latter also offers a power reserve indicator but keeps it out of sight on the case back. These movements are a far cry from the Unitasébauches that used to be the brand’s stock in trade. Not only do they look pretty – and offer a quite sophisticated micro-rotor – but the GMT can be adjusted without interrupting the timekeeping, and if you change the time, the second hand automatically hacks to zero, allowing for easy time-syncing.

The P.4001 of PAM 657

The genuinely useful complication and functionality, combined with the subtle evolution of Panerai’s timeless style mean both of these Radiomir 1940s will always look the part, no matter where you travel.

What’s Old is New Again: Watches with Bronze Cases

This is an era of offbeat, heretofore-unheard-of case materials like forged carbon, tantalum, alusic, titanium ceramic and even something called “Texalium” (aluminum-coated carbon fiber).  But one “new” case material has been around so long it has a prehistoric age named after it: bronze. In recent years, brands including IWC, Panerai, Zenith, Squale, U-Boat,Anonimo and Bulgari have introduced bronze watches. Most are divers’ watches or have a nautical theme; for them, bronze, used for centuries to make ship fittings and seafaring equipment, is a way to underline their maritime identity. In other watches, bronze is used simply for its appearance: the metal has a vintage-like matte patina, which differs from watch to watch and hence makes each watch unique. Here’s a look at this time-honored metal.
Alloys that contain at least 60 percent copper can be called “bronze,” but the term usually refers to alloys that are made from a mixture of copper and tin. Pure copper is relatively soft and dents easily while tin is brittle and breaks. But when combined, the resulting alloy resists wear, retains its shape and is antimagnetic. And its most outstanding property is its ability to resist corrosion in seawater.

Bronze is somewhat more brittle than stainless steel and weighs about 10 percent more. It reacts with oxygen, which results in a distinctive patina. This coating, which is oxidized copper, protects the underlying material against corrosion but leaves all other characteristics unchanged.
Among the various mixtures of copper and tin, experts distinguish between wrought or worked alloys, which include as much as 9 percent tin, and cast alloys, which usually contain between 9 and 12 percent tin. Bronzes that contain 20 percent tin are called “bell bronze.”
But bronzes are seldom made of just copper and tin; adding other materials creates alloys with tailor-made properties. Phosphorus and zinc are usually added to alloys that are wrought; these two substances as well as lead, nickel and iron are added to cast alloys. These blends are known as “multi-alloy bronzes.” If alloys contain little or no tin, they’re called “special bronzes.” The copper-aluminum blend used by the watch brand Anonimo is in this category. When a material other than tin is added to copper, the resulting alloy is named for the additional substance, i.e., “aluminum bronze,” “lead bronze,” “phosphorus bronze,” etc. Manufacturers use different alloys to create each brand’s distinctive nuances of color.

Anonimo uses an aluminum bronze alloy.
Aluminum bronze is a golden yellow alloy that can be cast and wrought. It usually contains between 9 and 14 percent aluminum. Iron, manganese and nickel are often added to aluminum bronze. Anonimo uses a type of aluminum bronze that contains 84 percent copper and 11.5 percent aluminum, in addition to smaller quantities of nickel, manganese, iron, zinc, tin and lead. A very thin exterior film of aluminum results in this alloy’s extremely high resistance to saltwater. Anonimo has used aluminum bronze since 1997. Each series that Anonimo offers includes at least one model with a bronze case.

Panerai relies on the bimetallic alloy CuSn8 for its bronze cases, which it has used for two limited-edition watches. CuSn8 contains 92 percent copper and 8 percent tin. Ickler, a case manufacturer based in Pforzheim, Germany, also uses this bronze alloy for the cases of its Archimede pilots’ watches. Archimede has three bronze-cased models in its standard collection.
The first of Panerai’s bronze limited editions debuted in 2011. The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo (read about it here) has a sea-green dial to underline the brand’s history as a supplier of dive watches and other diving instruments. Panerai equipped frogmen in the Italian Navy with dive watches 80-odd years ago. A limited-edition Luminor Submersible with a bronze case and a power-reserve display on its dial was unveiled in 2013. Both watches are now available only on the secondary market.

Both the bezel and case are made of bronze.

 

A green dial underscores Panerai’s affiliation with the ocean.
The case of Gérald Genta’s Gefica, launched in 1988, was made of a bronze alloy containing more than 90 percent copper. It is said to be the first bronze luxury watch. Genta supposedly designed the watch at the request of a big-game hunter, who wanted a watch with a matte finish that would not frighten away prey by reflecting sunlight. (Bulgari bought the Gérald Genta brand in 2000 and in 2007 brought out an updated version of the Gefica, also in bronze: the Gefica BiRetro Safari.)
Archimede began making bronze watches in 2013. Like Gérald Genta, it chose the metal for its matte patina, and uses it not only for the cases and crowns but also for the rivets on the leather straps. The watches’ casebacks are steel.

【Watch review again】PANERAI LUMINOR 1950 REGATTA 3 DAYS

PANERAI LUMINOR 1950 REGATTA 3 DAYS (PAM00526)

001.jpg

I am often attracted to watches which confer functions I am seldom likely to use. For example, I adore diver’s watches, yet rarely venture into deep waters. Furthermore, I have purchased watches which feature the marque of a particular prestigious car company, even though I don’t own said car. 

Ultimately, I suspect I am not alone. It is invariably the aesthetics of a watch that results in my cooing as I stand over a handsome horological creation. I become besotted with subtle design details, illustrated by a cradling hand resting on a beautiful form.  

002.jpg

The raison d’être for this particular model is to assist a competitive crew member in their pursuit of regatta glory.

Officine Panerai has a long association with the sea, harking back to the days it supplied the Royal Italian Navy with its über masculine Radiomir divers watches in 1936. This particular model features some ingenious functions which make it a must have for any team member vying for racing glory. However, do you really need a yacht to justify the purchase of this generously sized timepiece?

The dial

The first notable aspect of the dial is the sheer scale of the black canvas on which the functions are presented. It is huge, thanks to the generous case diameter of 47 mm. By default, this grants a large area to display the numerous functions mentioned on the watch’s specification sheet. The resultant dial display is highly legible with each constituent part having sufficient space to breathe, nothing feels crammed.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

Hour and minute hands are unfussy, lined with luminescent material and impart time with refreshing brevity.

A sandwich dial echt Panerai is a detail that will win favour with fans of the Swiss-Italian brand, myself included. The two layered construction accords a delicious depth to the dial that evokes a sense of discernible quality. Arabic numerals, in a modern font, feature at 6 o’clock and noon, whereas other hours are marked with simple batons. Panerai ownership invariably delivers nocturnal legibility par excellence and the PAM 526 proves to be no exception. The dial has a fantastic luminescence, featuring a delightful green emission. 

A small seconds display features at 9 o’clock, in common with several non-chronograph models in the Panerai catalogue, together with a 12-hour chronograph register positioned at 3 o’clock. The two subdials share the same proportion and deliver a balance to the dial which is very agreeable. 

Two central chronograph hands feature on the dial. The blue hand is a central chronograph seconds hand, whereas the orange hand is a central chronograph minutes hand. It is the latter which provides a fascinating point of differentiation. 

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

Prior to a regatta commencing, the yachts have to assemble for the start and a warning, typically five minutes prior to the commencement of a race, is made using flags and an audible signal. The wearer of the PAM 526 can press the orange push-piece, at 4 o’clock, to advance the orange chronograph minutes hand counter-clockwise into the “start” area, indicated on the dial and flange. 

003.jpg

The two chronograph hands begin counting down to zero and then continue thereafter once the race has commenced. 

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

A minute rail encircling the dial aids ease of read-off. The inner flange, as well as carrying the countdown scale, shows values up to 15 minutes before the start of the race. Moreover, it also features a tachymeter scale calibrated for knots, ideal for determining the speed of a yacht over a defined distance. 

It all sounds very complicated, however, a few minutes of familiarisation soon reveals the watch to be very simple to use. 

004.jpg

The start / stop chronograph button is positioned at 10 o’clock. The reset button is positioned at 8 o’clock. This is a flyback chronograph allowing the wearer to press the reset button whilst the stop-watch is in operation. This causes the chronograph hands to stop, reset and start in one simple action, proving useful for timing consecutive events.

The case

As the nomen implies the case is constructed of titanium with a brushed finish. I wouldn’t describe the watch as a featherweight, but the use of titanium does ensure it is not unduly heavy. Indeed, I think Panerai have judged the mass to perfection. On one hand there is an agreeable feeling of substance. Conversely, there is no requirement to be an adonis when wearing the Panerai. 

005.jpg

Whilst the size of this timepiece may polarise opinion, perhaps even alienating those people of diminutive stature, I personally fell under its bewitching spell. 

The PAM00526, sat comfortably on my wrist and I did not find the push pieces, or crown with its iconic protection device, inhibit free movement of my left hand. Moreover, there were no annoying red marks caused from chafing. One reason for the comfortable fit is the rubber strap. It has a ribbed profile and envelopes the wrist uniting the wearer and timepiece perfectly. 

006.jpg

Panerai has fitted an exhibition case back to the PAM00526, allowing the wearer to admire the brand’s in-house P.9100/R movement. 

The movement

The impressive P.9100/R calibre is an evolution of Panerai’s P.9100 automatic calibre and is currently only used in the Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio. 

007.jpg

The column-wheel chronograph will undoubtedly attract purists with its no compromise creation, visible via the exhibition case back. 

Twin spring barrels provide an impressive power reserve of 3 days. 

The movement comprises of 328 parts, reaffirming that Panerai has not sought production expedience when creating the P.9100/R calibre. However, it is the exalted creation of the movement which causes me to voice a minor criticism.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio (PAM00526) - a hands-on review by ESCAPEMENT

Panerai has fitted large bridges to the movement which deny the wearer the sight of the components beneath. Whilst I accept it provides a tidy appearance to the movement, it prevents inquisitive eyes the opportunity to savour more of the micro-mechanics within. Moreover, with only a small circular aperture revealing the column-wheel, the wearer is denied the wonderful spectacle of the lateral coupling interfacing with the six pillars of the castellated wheel. It is a shame, because it feels that some of the virtue of the movement specification is not being adequately shared with its owner. 

Nevertheless, that is really my only criticism of the PAM00526 and, in all honesty, would not dissuade me from considering the timepiece for my own collection. 

For above type, we have same type in stock, the price is favorable , if you are interested in , please feel free to contact us, you will have a pleasant surprise.

【Watch review again】 Panerai PAM745 Limited Edition Blue Dial Luminor


Panerai PAM745 Harrods Limited Edition Blue Dial Luminor Marina

Last year we were all amazed with a beautiful green dialed PAM693 Limited Edition created exclusively for Harrods. Fast forward to this past month where Harrods announced their second Limited edition in collaboration with Officine Panerai. The latest edition to their Limited Edition collection is the PAM745 Luminor Marina Titanium.

This Limited Edition watch features a 44m titanium case which houses a beautiful deep blue dial with full Arabic numerals around. They opted to go with gold hands which contrast nicely against the blue dial. It features the date at the 3 o’clock position while a sub second dial is on the opposite 9 o’clock side. The layout is very much like the classic PAM359 that has been a staple in the Panerai family.

The PAM745 is draped nicely with a matching titanium bracelet with a deployant clasp. As an added bonus they have a matching blue leather strap with a titanium buckle as well as the first ever colorized Panerai Rubber strap in blue for a change of pace.

Giving life to this piece is the workhorse P.9000 in-house automatic movement with a 72hour power reserve. You can view the movement through the sapphire crystal case back. The PAM745 is water resistant up to 30 bars or 300 meters. Since it is using the older P.9000, the watch has the more originally thick Luminor Marina 1950’s case as opposed to the new versions that you are seeing with the PAM1359or PAM1312 for example. Those use the new P.9010 movement which is a slimmer version of this particular movement allowing Panerai to slim down the overall case thickness. Thankfully the case and bracelet is made out of titanium or this beast of a watch would have really had some serious weight to it.

For above type, we have same type in stock, the price is favorable , if you are interested in , please feel free to contact us, you will have a pleasant surprise.

Rolex GMT Master II Review Of An Ultimate Tool Watch

Rolex GMT Master II Review Of An Ultimate Tool Watch

01.jpg

Rolex GMT Master II 16710 with Red-Blue bezel insert

The Rolex GMT Master II review details a long history that makes it one of the very definitions of a tool watch. The Rolex GMT-Master was designed for international travel crossing time zones. Pilots could now read 24 hour time to note in their flight log books. In fact, in 1954, Rolex designed the the original GMT for Pan-Am. It had a gilt dial, no crown guards and a Bakelite bezel insert. Legend has it that the black faced GMT’s were for pilots, and a white faced version was for office-based executives.

02.jpg

Rolex GMT from 1954

The most prevalent GMT Master II model is the 16710. Though, this model was replaced by the ceramic bezeled 116710. However, you can find the 16710 model at BeckerTime’s used Rolex GMT Master II, as well as the pre-owned Rolex market. The GMT Master II 16710 has evolved from the original 6542 and 1675 GMT Master with multiple features and improvements added. The model 1675 was the first to move from Bakelite bezel inserts that were fragile, to aluminum inserts. The original 1675 came with a blue-red insert indicating AM and PM as well as matching Pan-Am color scheme. Later, the 16750 came with a quickset hour hand. Also, for a few years came the 16760 “Fat Lady” because of its larger case. The 16760 was the first GMT with a sapphire crystal, red-black bezel insert, and independently adjustable hour hand so the user can track three time zones.

Similar to the Submariner

This Rolex GMT Master II review describes many appealing aspects to the Rolex GMT Master II 16710. This model uses a similar case as its brother the Submariner. The case is 904L stainless steel and the bracelet the more industry standard 314L stainless. 904L helps prevent corrosion that sometimes occurs on the caseback threads from sweat and sea water. Unlike the Submariner, the GMT utilizes a thinner caseback and Twinloc crown. Both of these differences make the GMT water resistant only to 100 meters. 100 meter water resistance is plenty durable for recreational swimming, snorkeling, and water activities that pilots would do.

The other appealing feature of the Rolex GMT Master II is the ability to track two time zones. It is easy to track another time zone by using the 24 hour hand set to UTC or Greenwich time, and the rotating bezel. The independently adjustable 12-hour hand make it easy to change local time when traveling among time zones. The numbers on the bezel insert, combined with the SuperLuminova covered dial dots and Mercedes hands make the Rolex GMT one of the more legible watch faces.

The Rolex GMT Master II 16710 is available with an Oyster bracelet and Oysterlock bracelet clasp. Earlier models were also available with a DateJust style clasp and Jubilee style bracelet, bridging the tool watch with a dress watch.

This Rolex GMT Master II review points out that no one can go wrong with a GMT Master II because of its ease in wearing it, its provenance and history, and its functionality.

DEAR,WEAR THE PANERAI LUMINOR LIKE A BOSS

Like Rolex, Panerai has an unmistakable look that is instantly identifiable. In fact, Panerai’s design codes are actually more stringent. A casual observer of the Panerai collection may remark that most of their watches look almost identical. Yet, Paneristis – the term used for passionate Panerai enthusiasts – would adamantly disagree. It’s all about understanding the small, but important differences among the models that fuel their passion. Panerai enjoys a cult following among celebrities, top athletes, and politicians alike. Sylvester Stallone, Payton Manning, and Bill Clinton are just a few among the famous fans of the Panerai brand.

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Accacio 44m PAM00088

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio 44m PAM00088 a GMT.

Essentially there are two main Panerai models – the Radiomir and the Luminor. And these two models also include vintage-inspired collections with the Radiomir 1940 and the Luminor 1950. The Radiomir watch was named after the “radiomir” radium-based material that Panerai patented in 1916 – a material that provided luminosity to the face of Panerai watches. Panerai presented the original Radiomir watch prototype in 1936 specifically for the frogmen of the Royal Italian Navy. In 1949, Panerai patented another luminous material that utilizes Tritium and dubs it “luminor”. The following year, in 1950, the Panerai unveils the Luminor watch.

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio – 44mm

PAM00088

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio 44m PAM00088
The chief differentiating design characteristic between the Radiomir and the Luminor is the bridge protecting the winding crown. An exaggerated crown guard so to speak. Opening the bridge allows turning and setting of the winding crown. while closing it renders the Luminor watertight and ready to plunge as deep as 300m underwater.

PAM00088

This particular Luminor, PAM00088, is a GMT Automatic Acciaio. “Acciaio” is the Italian word for steel and as such, the 44mm case of the PAM00088 features a stainless steel case construction. Like the Rolex GMT collection, this Panerai allows wearers to keep track of two different time zones simultaneously. Where the seconds hand would normally sweep around the dial is instead a GMT-hand that points to the 24-hour scale to indicate a second time zone like a vintage GMT. The seconds are thus indicated via a small subsidiary dial positioned at 9 o’clock. Furthermore, on the opposite side of the dial, at the 3 o’clock position, sits a date window magnified by a lens attached to the sapphire crystal. The dial carries the distinct Panerai aesthetic with a clean black background, large Arabic numerals, and plenty of lume.

PAM00088

Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio 44m PAM00088

Powering the PAM000888 Luminor GMT is the Panerai OP VIII caliber with 42 hours of power-reserve. The COSC-certified Panerai movement is safely housed behind the screw-down caseback. This specific Panerai PAM 000888 is outfitted with a sporty black rubber strap marked with “OFFICINE PANERAI”. However, the beauty of a Panerai watch is how easy it is to switch out the strap and the Luminor GMT also looks great dressed with a leather strap.
A bold and modern luxury watch inspired by its military history, the Panerai Luminor is certainly a watch that doesn’t go unnoticed.

【PAM00088】Panerai Luminor GMT 44mmUnboxing Review

Panerai Luminor GMT 44mm: Unboxing Review PAM00088

panerai-pam-00088-2.jpg

A Big GMT For The Modifier At Heart

Of all watch makers, Panerai package their watches in the most understated box of all of them.
The Panerai Luminor GMT 44mm is supplied in a simple light orange coloured wood box with a rigid felt like insert. This Luminor watch is supplied with a brown alligator strap with a steel deployant buckle and an additional black rubber strap. The watch is also packaged with a screwdriver to replace the strap yourself and a solid feeling .
panerai-pam-00088-15-3-16-3.jpg
The watch follows Panerai’s successful design recipe of a bold striking design in a large case, a simple uncluttered legible dial and a wide assortment of straps.
Searching on just Panerai’s site yielded 18 strap results with a deployant buckle, ranging from alligator in normalshiny and antiqued varieties, canvas, and calfskin straps. As well as titanium and steel bracelets. In addition to this there are a mind-boggling 23 different Panerai buckles compatible with this watch. Constructed from: TitaniumSteelRed GoldPink GoldWhite Goldand Tantalum.
There are then further options to be made for the metals finish: they can bebrushed or polished and the steel options can have a DLC coating, or a blackPVD coating applied.
With so many flexible options that the wearer can decide from, the Panerai watch experience is a highly individual and customised one. An iconic watch can be worn with a versatile choice of straps that gives more options to the wearer without diluting the classic design of the watch.
panerai-pam-00088-2.jpg
The Panerai Luminor GMT [ref. PAM00088] has a wide-ish 44mm case diameter, excluding the crown and lugs. It would feel more at home on a guy’s wrist of normal to large proportions; as the solid stainless steel case weighs a fair bit, and the crown protrudes out of the casing by quite a lot. It features a solid case back and curved lugs that attempt to hug the wrist. A slightly cambered sapphire crystal sits on the face of the dial with an anti-reflective coating and a magnified date window at the 3 o’clock position. This being balanced on the opposing side of the dial by a silvered second counter, that contrasts well on the black dial.
Around the circumference of the dial are the 24-hour markers alternating between lines and Arabic characters for the GMT arrow-head hand to point to. Within them, are the hour markers and minute indicators in five-minute intervals. All the numbers are in a highly legible font that can be read easily from a distance or in limited light with the help of some luminescent fill.
panerai-pam-00088-3.jpg
The Highly legible dial on the Panerai Luminor GMT 44mm shown in a low light environment
The watch is powered by an automatic OP VIII calibre movement. Which is a certified chronometer by the COSC for excellent accuracy and alternates at 28,800 VpH with a 42-hour power reserve.
Ultimately this is a bold iconic watch that has a solid presence on the wrist, all the while maintaining a high level of customizability to the wearers taste.

Panerai unveils stunning concept watch

Very few watch brands have achieved as much as  Panerai has, based on just two main collections. The Italian manufacture, with its roots in Italian naval history, has stayed very true to the DNA of the Luminor and Radiomir, each year offering subtle new features that have kept fans happy and hungry for more.

The outstanding feature of this carbon composite is its dense, uneven blackness, the appearance of which varies from cut to cut, making each dial unique. Carbotech is also lighter and more resistant to external stresses, while being hypo-allergenic and not subject to corrosion.

Taking its play with carbon further, a coating of carbon nanotubes has been used for the first time for the display dial. The optical properties of this special coating absorb light, reducing reflection to a minimum and giving the sandwich dial a startlingly deep black appearance. The blackness is contrasted by the bright blue indices and markers.
Powering the Lab-ID is the P3001/C semi-skeletonised, hand-wound calibre, featuring components made from a new integrated Tantalus-based ceramic that requires no additional lubricants. The watch comes in a black leather strap with matching blue sewing.
“In previous years, we have presented ceramic, carbotech, bronze … We take this from our DNA, from the sea. Last year, we had the titanium case and we put in the tourbillon. This year, we have put together different technologies in order to create a concept watch that is full of innovation while keeping the original DNA of the brand. That’s why we realised the Lab-ID.”
“So why is it called a concept watch despite us making 50 pieces? Because we can use these concentrations of technology in various combinations to transform Panerai in the future.”
Innovative material is also the hallmark of Panerai’s new Submersible 1950 BMG-Tech 3 Days Automatic in 47mm. At first glance, the PAM692 may seem rather similar to other Submersibles from the brand – until you take a closer look at the material. The case, bezel, winding crown and associated protection device are made of bulk metallic glass (BMG),made from a special glass-like alloy in a way which prevents crystallisation.
The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 42mm
This disrupted atomic structure offers extreme resistance to wear, high strength and great lightness: useful qualities for an underwater watch. The dive piece is water resistant up to 300 metres and houses the new P9010 in-house movement with a power reserve of 72 hours. The P9010 – a thinner version of the P9000 – also powers the rest of the Submersible 1950 novelties for this year. The thinner calibre has allowed Panerai to introduce the first 42mm case for the Submersible 1950 collection: the classic stainless steel Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio, and the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso, which features a black ceramic bezel. Both are water resistant up to 100m.
Panerai’s Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso in 42mm (PAM682Panerai’s Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso in 42mm (PAM682)
Bronze makes its third appearance with the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo in 47mm and, for the first time, with a blue dial. Rounding up the dive collection are two titanium models, also in 47mm: the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio and the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanium. The latter is the latest version of the first anti-magnetic watch produced by Panerai and also features a black ceramic bezel.
The America’s Cup novelty is the official watch of the 35th edition of the race
The 44mm stainless steel case also houses the P9010 and the black dial features the date at 3 o’clock and the seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock. The words “America’s Cup” are shown below the Panerai brand at 6 o’clock, with the race logo on the caseback.

How do you think of Panerai ? Do you know PAM 685, PAM687?

Setting the controls for the 1930s, Panerai marches out two new Radiomir models inspired by vintage pieces that were once presented to the higher-ups of the Royal Italian Navy.

Panerai Radiomir 3 Day Acciaio PAM687

The throwback detail is centred on the 12-sided bezel in brushed steel, which replicates the look of Panerai Radiomir’s screw-down casebacks. The words ‘OFFICINE PANERAI – BREVATTATO’ are inscribed on the bezel, likely alluding to the timepieces that were once sent to the authorities to be tested.

Other historical references are expressed via the case size (47mm, similar to vintage Panerai watches), the old-school wire loop lugs, and the classic sandwich dial. Two dial versions are available: black (PAM685) and shaded brown (PAM687). The latter is the one to go for, in our opinion. The retrolicious hue, which, in fact, is new dial colour for Panerai, comes with an interesting backstory. The brown mimics the faded shade of once-black dials that had changed colour due to the effects of radium, the luminescent substance that was used in old Panerai watches.

Panerai Radiomir 3 Day Acciaio PAM685Panerai Radiomir 3 Day Acciaio PAM687

Both models are powered by Panerai’s in-house P.3000 hand-wound movement, introduced in 2010, with three-day power reserve driven by two spring barrels. Another great feature of this movement is its quick-set mechanism, which allows for the hour hand to be set forward or backwards without interfering with the minute hand or operation of the watch.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days

Reference PAM00682, aka the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 42mm, takes all of the burly appeal of the 47mm Submersible  and trims off a whopping 5mm. For me, and I think for many others who may be “benched” Panerai fans, that 5mm makes a world of difference. This is not the first 42mm Panerai, but it is the first 42mm Submersible, and it opens up the line to a wider (possibly underserved) audience. The Submersible is not Panerai’s bread and butter, but rather their more niche dive watch, making the choice to go 42mm even more interesting. Perhaps this is a test? A way of gauging the actual response for a smaller sporty Panerai?
Available in steel (the aforementioned PAM00682) or rose gold (the PAM00684), the steel version has a brushed steel bezel while the Oro Rosso features a black ceramic insert. The usual Panerai Luminor crown guard is in place, water resistance is 300m for the steel and 100m for the rose gold, and either model comes fitted to a 22mm black Caoutchouc rubber strap.
Safely housed inside its chunky case, we find Panerai’s P.9010 movement. This automatic 4Hz movement sports twin barrels to provide 72 hours of power reserve. Being a base Submersible, the P.9010 needs only offer hours, minutes, sub-seconds at nine, and a date display at three. The case back is of the display variety, allowing a view of the manufacture movement within.

On my seven-inch wrist, the 42mm Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic feels great. It’s fun, special, and a dead-on translation of the form into a smaller footprint. The rubber strap is excellent and legibility is, obviously, very good. I especially enjoy the small pop of blue provided by the sub-seconds hand on the steel Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic PAM682. If gold is more your thing, it’s hard to beat the contrast of the gold case alongside the combo of the black dial and ceramic bezel. The lugs are drilled and use screws to mount the strap, so leather or a NATO should be of little difficulty.

As nice as the Panerai Luminor Submersible may be, I can’t decide if these 42mm models are more niche (as they may upset the already satiated Submersible crowd) or less niche (as they connect the Submersible to a new, wider audience). In considering both sides of that argument, I came to the conclusion that I don’t really care. I just know that I really love this little Sub.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo

The new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo renews Panerai’s tradition of creating iconic underwater watches with unique and distinctive characteristics, with excellent technical features and a strong historical inspiration. A few years after the original launch of the watch, when this fascinating ancient material, always associated with the sea, was first brought onto the international stage of high-quality watchmaking, Paneraipresents a new watch with a bronze case, combined for the first time with a blue dial.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo Panerai SIHH 2017

The bronze used to make the case (47 mm in diameter) and the classic bridge device protecting the winding crown is an alloy of copper and pure tin, which is highly resistant to the corrosive action of sea water and atmospheric agents. As well as being structurally very strong, this material preserves its warm original tones, while acquiring an agreeably worn look from the characteristic patina which forms over time. This patina is the result of the reaction of bronze with external agents and it has no effect on the intrinsic properties of the material, but it is a visual sign of the ageing process, making every example unique and different from the rest.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo Panerai SIHH 2017

Also made of bronze is the rotating bezel with a graduated scale for calculating the time of immersion, connected to the case by a special system designed and patented by Officine Panerai to ensure the maximum precision of the clicks. In the centre of the back is a sapphire glass porthole through which the P.9010 automatic calibre, with a power reserve of three days can be admired. Completely developed and produced in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the movement is only 6 mm thick and it has very useful functions including the date (at 3 o’clock), the small seconds counter (at 9 o’clock), the device for stopping the balance wheel so as to synchronise the watch with a reference time signal, and the mechanism for rapidly adjusting the hour hand, which can be moved forwards or backwards in one-hour jumps without interfering with the running of the watch.

The new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo (PAM00671) is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 metres) and it is completed by a brown leather strap with sewing of a nautical character and a titanium buckle.

Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710LN

Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710LN
Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710LNA decade ago, Rolex launched the steel-only GMT-Master II, which went on to enjoy instant success due to its lower price and refined details that appealed to both new-gen watch geeks and old school Rollie collectors.Unlike the other Rolex sports models such as the Daytona that draws its inspiration from the namesake motorsports rally or the Submariner with its dive-ready features, the GMT-Master II has always been a favourite of the watch club.

Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 6542
While the steel-only GMT-Master II was launched in 1997, the GMT-Master has actually been around for over five decades. The first GMT-Master Ref. 6542 (above) was introduced in 1955 in collaboration with Pan American World Airways. The airline company had just kicked off its transatlantic routes and their pilots needed a wristwatch that could tell the home and away times at a single glance. The GMT-Master offered the perfect solution.

After that, the watch went through several tweaks such as movement upgrades, new bezels and colours from the ‘50s all the way up to ‘80s. In 1983, Rolex revamped the GMT model by releasing the GMT-Master II Ref.16790 that featured an extra thick case and large crown guards, earning it the nickname “Fat Lady”.

In 2005, the 50th anniversary model was launched with a green dial (Ref.116718 KN) and a slew of enamouring qualities such as a ceramic bezel (instead of aluminium ones) that rotates in one-hour increments, Triplock crown, maxi dial with larger hands and indexes, and the Calibre 3186 with blue Parachrom hairspring for enhanced precision. These new features soon became a mainstay of the watch and marked a new era for the GMT pieces.

When worn on the wrist, the Ref. 116710LN is a fuss-free two-time zone watch that is super easy to use and offers great versatility. The contrasting black dial and white Super-LumiNova indicators, separate 24-hour hand, anti-reflective cyclops lens, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel and Superlative Chronometer-certified performance produce a perfect combination of purpose and build.

Rolex GMT Batman
As mentioned earlier, the attractive price of RM32,650 makes this watch an extremely desirable piece especially when compared to the yellow gold version and green bezel limited editions (from the 50th anniversary revamp) as well as newer models like the ‘Pepsi’ in white gold or ‘Batman’ (above) in steel.
At the end of the day, this is a timepiece that emphasises function and versatility over style. That’s not to say it isn’t a looker. In particular, it hits the right spot compared to its flashy brethren, with the black and steel combo making it a superbly understated yet elegant watch.

Design review | Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea

rolex_deepsea_review-1.jpg
If someone had asked me about a Rolex timepiece I would like to see on my wrist, I would have point to one of the divers’ watches straight away. For some reason I have never considered myself a fan of costing an arm and a leg Daytona or Datejust models; but, this Swiss manufacturer’s “divers” were always on my must-have collector’s list, with Submariner in particular. Reviewed here Sea-Dweller Deepsea has also been close to my heart, even though I considered it as a timekeeper for genuine divers or men with a slightly different posture than mine. Yet, after spending two weeks with it, I can say one thing, we got to like each other a lot. Despite its fair weight and the fact that not all of my shirts have enough space under the cuff to accommodate mentioned Deepsea, I must say that parting with it wasn’t easy.

A slayer of the oceans is born

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Sea-Dweller Deepsea (SDDS) ref. 116660 debuted in 2008 as a successor of the Sea-Dweller model ref. 16600. Mass-produced, water resistant up to 3,900m SDDS was a real record-holder in this field when it was released for the first time. The level of 12,800 feet has been achieved thanks, inter alia, its thick convex sapphire glass, its inner ring and titanium caseback.

rolex_deepsea_review_2.jpg

Although I’m aware that divers rarely wear mechanical watches during underwater exploration, I must honestly admit that Rolex is not an amateur in this matter. Already in 1960, US Marine Bathyscaphe Trieste went down almost to the bottom of Mariana Trench as deep as 10,916m. There was a special version of Rolex Deepsea attached to its hull. Over 5 decades later, National Geographic and James Cameron organized expedition into the Challenger’s depth; the stunt was accompanied by none other than Rolex, the most water resistant mechanical watch (WR12,000) – Deepsea Challane.

Design

rolex_deepsea_review_3.jpg

SDDS’s dial doesn’t have a grainy structure, known from other manufacturers’ models. It has been given a very nice black matte finish with a whole litany of words on its surface (Oyster Perpetual Date Deepsea, Sea-Dweller, 12800ft / 3900m, Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified), considered by many people to be affecting its readability. Additionally, there are two extra tag lines on its inner ring: Original Gas Escape Valve and Ring Lock System. Such an accumulation of writings doesn’t bother me at all; I think it gives the timepiece a technical character. Especially, that Ring Lock’s engravings don’t stand out in everyday use.

rolex_deepsea_review_4.jpg

While talking about the dial we must not forget its hands; those in SDDS are wider than in standard Submariners. As a luminous material Rolex used his own, patented Chromalite, which gives a strong, blue glow. A 5.5mm thick convex sapphire glass is protecting the whole thing, without anti reflexive coating this time; even though, the timepiece looks like there was no glass at all at certain angles.

Bezel has been made of polished ceramics in deep, black colour which – along with scale markings and a little triangle filled with blue lume – looks great! It rotates anticlockwise with 120 clicks using ceramic ball bearings, and works perfectly; the movement is smooth on one hand, but very steady and accurate on the other. What has drawn my attention, was the feeling of “suspension” i.e. the whole bezel seems to be suspended on springs. It can be lightly pushed in towards the case, then it goes back to previous position when released.

rolex_deepsea_review_6.jpg

Deepsea is one of the rare Rolex timepieces with date window without a typical, distinctive little magnifier. Some say that the famous “Cyclop’s eye” would come off at great depths; others say that longer distance from the dial (caused by thicker glass) could give too strong magnification, which wouldn’t look very well.

rolex_deepsea_review_7.jpg

On the right hand side of the case we can see a guard protected Triplock crown keeping Rolex divers’ tickers company since 1970. It consists of three sealed zones, which indicate water resistance level; the three-dot telltale mark can be found on the crown under embossed firm’s logo.

rolex_deepsea_8.jpg

Across the dial, at 9 o’clock, an automatic helium release valve is located; used by few deep-sea divers, which use helium-saturated atmosphere in order to avoid air toxicity. It’s never going to be used during conventional diving. The valve itself has been created in cooperation with DOXA in order to meet requirements made by Comex (Compagnie Maritime d’Expertises), a company established in 1961 and specializing in underwater exploration.

rolex_deepsea_review_9.jpg

From the bottom it has been given a titanium caseback (slightly darker), kept down by a stainless steel screw-in, known from other Rolex models serrated ring, virtually without any incrustations.

The buckle fastens a stainless steel bracelet with polished edges; the rest of it is brushed. Despite many people’s objections that the links are too narrow comparing to the diameter of the case; the whole thing fits the wrist very well and most importantly, it does not pull hair. My only complaint would be a squeaky sound it makes when moving. I know that all it takes is a bit of oil, but I would expect the manufacturer to take care of this in a new watch.

rolex_deepsea_review_10.jpg

Indestructible construction

Now it’s time for the case. Its lateral surfaces are polished, the rest – slightly brushed. The timekeeper’s dimensions are: 44mm diameter and 17,7mm height. The whole thing, including 5mm glass and a bracelet shortened by a few links, weights just over 200 grams. It’s a lot, but I must say that I could only notice it for the first 4hrs of wearing, for the next 2 weeks I wasn’t even aware that there was anything on my wrist.

rolex_deepsea-9.jpg

An indestructible case contains the COSC certified 3135 calibre. It has been equipped with a shock absorbing Paraflex system, anti-magnetic Parachrom hairspring and central, bidirectional self-winding via Perpetual rotor. The 3135 works at 28,800bph, featuring date function along with its fast adjustment and a stop-second allowing accurate time setting.

rolex_mechanizm_11.jpg

I have tried to perform different homegrown accuracy tests and managed to establish that when fully would, it lost approximately 2-3 sec per day. Its deviation has increased to 4-5 sec (slow) in the space of 24h, when the watch was left untouched for equal amount of time, making it compliant with the COSC standard.

Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT Watch Is First Double Minute Repeater

Panerai-Radiomir-1940-1.jpg

Panerai has just announced the release of their most highly complicated watch featuring  two of their brand new minute repeaters (to chime in two time zones, naturally) and a price tag starting at $400,000 and going up with customizations. Panerai wants to pay tribute to their naval history and this piece is an homage to the significance of bell-tones aboard a vessel out at sea. The Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT watch also has the distinction of being the first-ever watch with two minute repeaters, and also features a tourbillon and a brand new new movement. They must also be keenly aware that it is a future-grail piece for Paneristis and collectors, and as a result they’re offering something unusual in haute horlogerie: flexibility. The watch is made to order and buyers will be able to customize things not only like the strap but hands and even the material the case is made of.

Breaking the mold by incorporating two minute repeaters for local time and a second time zone, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT employs three hammers to achieve a melody. Initiated via a push-piece at 8 o’clock, the repeater here packs three hammers rather than the traditional two, to allow a combination of tones with the lowest timbre indicating the hour while the highest and latter tones indicate the minutes. In traditional repeaters a triple chime usually indicates a fifteen minute passage but the Carillon utilizes a decimal repeater which chimes 10 minute increments. So, for example a traditional minute repeater would chime 10:28 as ten chimes for the hour, followed by one chime for 15 minutes, followed by 13 chimes for individual minutes. Here, 10:28 is 10 chimes for the hour, two triple chimes, and 8 individual chimes. Note that they decided to use “triple chimes” for the second chime indicating 10-minute sets.
Hilariously, Panerai says this use of a decimal repeater “corresponds to customary ways in which time is now indicated by digital watches.” That’s right, Panerai just cited digital watches as, at least partly, being behind behind their logic in the making of a minute repeater watch.

As part of their plans for the near future and in alignment with the upcoming “Dive Into Time” event which will be held in a former crypt at the Museo Marino Marini in Florence, Panerai clearly sees this piece as a milestone for the brand. Obviously the familiar and iconic Panerai cases are instantly recognizable, so the the traditional Radiomir case shape is retained and done in red gold with a skeletonized dial.


The  Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT sits atop your wrist at  49mm wide and  in 18k red gold with a platinum alloy which promises to ensure superb resonance. The case is actually two pieces which have been individually crafted before being soldered together and as a result, each watch will have its own unique reverberation. Even though they could probably get away without it here, the hands and indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova® like any good Panerai to ensure legibility. Water resistance for the Carillon is 30 meters, if you were curious.

The black skeletonized dial allows a close-up view of the hand-wound P.2005/MR which is four years in the making in the Laboratorio di Idlee in Neuchâtel Manufacture. Not content to rest on their laurels, Panerai has included their tourbillon regulator that operates a little differently than most. Rather than rotate on a parallel axis, as most tourbillons do, this one does so at a perpendicular axis and completes its rotation every thirty seconds.  Panerai claims this allows for an accurate experience while compensating for any changes in gravity or shock. The P.2005/MR contains two spring barrels and has a power reserve of 96 hours that is monitored with an indicator through the sapphire crystal back.

We also have same type,  1:1 re-produce,  the price is lower a lot, if you are interested in, please feel free to contact us.

What a race car driver Rolex! Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch

Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

Today we will share real stories about real Rolex watches and discuss what makes both the watches and their very personal histories so unique and appealing.
Given Rolex’s tool watch heritage, it was only a matter of time before the company started manufacturing watches that were resistant to more than just moisture and dirt. As electricity proliferated throughout modern industry during the 1950s, some individuals found that the electromagnetic fields emitted by the equipment around them wreaked havoc on their wristwatches. Rolex embraced electricity’s presence and decided to create a watch that could withstand the conditions of the modern day work environment. In 1958, they released a watch that was prepared to deal with these new demands: the Rolex Milgauss, reference 6541.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

The name Milgauss was created by combining two words: mille (Latin for a thousand) and gauss, the unit of measurement for magnetic forces. The name was intended to be an ever-present reminder that the watch was designed to withstand electromagnetic forces greater than 1,000 gauss. Rolex was able to achieve this feat by encasing the entire movement inside a Faraday cage. The Faraday cage (first invented by Michael Faraday in 1836) works by redistributing electromagnetic charges throughout the cage’s conducting material, thus neutralizing the effects present inside the cage.

The reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss came in two variations: one with a rotating bezel, featuring a minute scale (similar to that of a Submariner), and one with a large, fixed, flat bezel that was primarily intended for U.S. markets. Both versions were fitted with a lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand – an ever-present reminder of the Milgauss’s electromagnetic resilience.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

The rotating bezel variant of the reference 6541 is truly unique among the Milgauss line of watches, as it most closely resembles an early iteration of Rolex’s Submariner. However, the flat bezel version of the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss marks the point in the watch line’s history where the famous electromagnetic timepiece started to take its final form.

Although it was originally invented for scientists and medical technicians working in the proximity of high-powered lab equipment, the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss found an early following with members of the professional automobile-racing world. While it did not possess any features specifically tailored to racing, the Rolex Milgauss reference 6541’s sports-oriented style and lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand made it aesthetically fitting for those whose career revolved around the pursuit of speed.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

Among the various automobile racing personnel to take interest in the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss was American professional stock car driver and owner, Bobby Allison. Born December 3rd, 1937 in Miami, Florida, Robert Arthur “Bobby” Allison entered his first race as a senior at Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School. As he was only 17 years old at the time, Allison required his parents’ permission in order to participate in the race. When his mother gave her reluctant approval, she believed it would only be for a single event; she had no idea that her son would go on to become one of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers of all time. Throughout his career, Bobby Allison earned 84 credited victories, including the 1983 Winston Cup championship; and the Daytona 500, which he won three separate times, in 1978, 1982, and 1988.

Bobby Allison was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame in America in 1992, the International Motor Sports Hall of Fame in 1993, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2011. Allison is one of only eight drivers in the history of the sport to have won what is unofficially known as a Career Grand Slam. This feat includes winning the sport’s four majors: the Daytona 500, the Winston 500 at Talladega, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, and the Southern 500 at Darlington. After moving full-time to the Grand National circuit in 1965. Bobby Allison earned his first career victory on June 2, 1966, at the Oxford Plains Speedway. To celebrate his win, Allison purchased a reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss, and gifted it to his crew chief as a thank you present.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

The reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss that Bobby Allison purchased was one of the flat bezel variants intended for U.S. markets. Its thick, chunky case, combined with its black, “honeycomb” dial and lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand made for a distinctly sporty look that perfectly complimented the high-speed, racing lifestyle.

Although the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss found an unexpected audience in members of the professional automobile-racing world, its overall sales were somewhat disappointing. Just four years before the release of the Milgauss, Rolex introduced both the GMT-Master and Submariner lines of watches, which competed directly with the Rolex Milgauss and consequently hindered its sales. While it was impressive from a technological standpoint, relatively few people in 1958 actually required the anti-magnetic capabilities of the Rolex Milgauss, and as a result, sales were rather lackluster. However, like many other vintage Rolex watches, the Rolex Milgauss reference 6541’s poor initial sales are part of the reason it is now sought after by collectors today.

The reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss gifted by Bobby Allison to his crew chief has remained incredibly well preserved throughout the decades. The Milgauss name is printed in red on the dial surface; however, the lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand lacks the red tip that only appears on later production runs of the reference 6541.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

Over the years, the black “honeycomb” dial of this particular Rolex Milgauss has turned a tropical brown color, which perfectly compliments the reference 6541’s vintage, sports-forward style. Although its original rivet link bracelet has long since been replaced by a later-era Oyster model, the case and bezel of the watch have remained unpolished, and the lugs are still nice and thick, with the bevels intact.

Most unique to Allison’s reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss is the engraving on its case-back which reads, “Bobby Allison / 1st. Modified / Permatex – 300 / 1966.” While a number of Rolex Milgauss reference 6541s were owned by high-profile drivers of the automobile racing world, only one Milgauss bears such an engraving, forever connecting it to its legendary previous owner. The Milgauss is important within Rolex’s history because it represents the company’s ongoing commitment to producing timepieces that thrive in conditions where others cannot. As the first-ever Rolex Milgauss, the reference 6541 is a rare and valuable watch that occupies an important place in Rolex’s tool watch history.

Race Car Driver Bobby Allison’s Flat Bezel Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Watch Hands-On

Part of what makes the Rolex Milgauss so interesting to collectors is that it largely missed its target demographic. Although it was initially intended for scientists and medical professionals, the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss found its strongest following with members of the American professional automobile racing industry – not because it possessed complications or design elements specifically tailored racing, but rather because of its sporty visual appearance.

Some of history’s most famous and accomplished NASCAR drivers have purchased Rolex’s reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss. From Richard Petty to Bobby Allison and numerous more, Rolex’s watch for scientists found a home with racecar drivers. Whether it was purchased for personal use, or as a gift for a loyal crewmember or industry colleague, the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss has a history that is inextricably (and entirely unintentionally) linked to the world of professional automobile racing.

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

When I first read the press release, I thought I was looking at the proposal for a Swiss-based Bamford Watch Department, but that’s not the case at all. This company takes a different tack to the concept of customisation of a Rolex in the style of Bamford or Made Worn (this Rolex Milgauss by Made Worn is still my favourite Rolex ever). This is more like an homage, with a restoration to make the watch a contemporary piece. It kind of reminds me of ICON Automative and what they do with cars.

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

The Rolex Daytona 6263, takes its “Big Red” nickname from the large, red Daytona that curves around the top of the six o’clock sub-dial.Reputedly, the team spent over two years researching its nuances, and the combined efforts of nine craftsman over a 78-hour period were required to assemble the dial. The dial and the updated hands (which are not identical to the original, but a nice evolution) offer exceptional legibility, and are the epitome of a racing chronograph when paired together.

Les Artisans De Genève Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 Watch Watch Releases

Other exterior modifications include the hand-made “push-pump” pusher pieces, which still guarantee water resistance to 100m, but also offer a smooth look and feel during operation. The sleek form is complemented by the bakelite bezel, which mirrors the fashions of 1970. These days, we’re used to seeing steel, aluminium, or ceramic as the main material for bezel inserts. This material gives a really vintage, authentic feel to the piece, and was worth the necromancy it must have taken to resurrect the almost forgotten skill of working bakelite into a luxury product.

All divers’ watches share certain characteristics that make them divers’ watches: unidirectional rotating bezels, secure screw-down crowns, higher-than-typical water resistance. Some of these divers’ watches, however, go the extra mile (or fathom), with cases that can descend to 3,000 or even 4,000 meters, chronographs operable at incredible depths, or high-tech depth gauge devices built into their mechanical movements. Below, we take a look at seven of these “extreme” dive watches and what sets them apart from the pack.

The Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea has a water-resistance level of 3,900 meters (nearly 13,000 feet), and it is more than 10 percent slimmer than it otherwise would have been thanks to a special case construction developed by Rolex. It consists of three pressure-absorbing elements: a 5.5 mm thick sapphire crystal, a 3.28-mm-thick caseback made of grade 5 titanium, and an inner ring (on which both of them rest) made of Biodur-108 steel. Last summer, Rolex launched the new Rolex Deepsea D-Blue Edition (pictured below), with a proprietary “D-Blue” dial that is dark blue at the top, and then darkens gradually to black at the bottom.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Rolesor Watches For 2017

Rolex Sky-Dweller Rolesor Watches For 2017 With More Accessible Prices Watch Releases

Among this year’s new releases for Baselworld 2017, Rolex is introducing some tweaks to the Rolex Sky-Dweller watch with “Rolesor” model options. While an all-steel version is still frustratingly unavailable, these two-tone gold and steel models represent a relatively more budget option. It’s a step in the right direction, at least. As even the slightest stir from Rolex is apparently headline-worthy, let’s take the loupe to this 2017 Rolex Sky-Dweller, beginning with the new hands and indexes.

These new Rolex Sky-Dweller models are characterized by the blocky, rectangular indexes and longer hands. Previous models have all been Roman or Arabic numerals that could even be viewed as quirky in a Rolex context, so this adds a significantly more standard and conservative option to the collection. Further, it will allow Rolex savants to distinguish at a glance, say, an all-white-gold model from a two-tone steel and white gold model. Longer hands, as we saw on the Rolex Explorer last year, are always a welcome improvement to legibility and aesthetic balance.

Between a few dial color options, these features debut on a range of about six Rolex Sky-Dweller models, with two variations of a “Rolesor” case. If you’ve been living under a rock (or have a life outside of watches), “Rolesor” is Rolex’s special term for a two-tone case, meaning steel and gold. In this release, we are talking about steel plus yellow gold or white gold. Owners, at least, of two-tone steel and white gold models will hopefully know which parts of their expensive Rolex Sky-Dweller watches are which material.

The new hands and indexes also give a lot more surface for lume (or “Chromalight”) than previous Rolex Sky-Dwellers, and Rolex is emphasizing just how glowy they will be in the dark. Other features of the Rolex Sky-Dweller are mostly carried over from past versions. That includes the cool and useful Ring Command bezel that rotates to different positions and is used in conjunction with the crown to set the various functions that include a 24-hour second time zone and annual calendar. The 42mm case is water-resistance is 100m. The new Rolex Sky-Dweller models come on two-tone, solid link bracelets with Rolex’s handy Easylink extension system that many will be familiar with.

The Rolex caliber 9001 inside with its antimagnetic Parachrom balance spring and Paraflex shock absorbers is, of course, certified by Rolex’s own stringent tests and guaranteed to be accurate to -2/+2 seconds per day. This is standard across all Rolex watches but still impressive, and you canread more about Rolex’s certification standards here. The 9001 has automatic winding, of course, and gets a power reserve of about 72 hours. The ability to set the functions backward or forward safely is an appreciated feature, and you have to love the clever way of indicating the month – in red, through an aperture on the periphery of the 12 indexes.

These new Rolex Sky-Dweller models will only broaden the collection’s appeal both thanks to their sensible design and more accessible price. The Rolex Sky-Dweller is Rolex’s “other” GMT watch that is aimed at the gentleman traveler more than the sporty traveler’s Rolex GMT Master watches.

IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000

IWC-Aquatimer-Automatic-2000-Ref.-IW358001-1

There’s an embarrassment of excellent new divers coming to market right now, and IWC have jumped right in and announced the addition of three new additions to its well regarded diver’s watch family. One of these is the Aquatimer Automatic 2000(Ref. IW358001), so called because it is water resistant to 2000 meters.

IWC’s Aquatimer Automatic 2000 for 2016 comes with yellow hands and numerals and a black dial. The ori­gins of this timepiece go all the way back to 1982 with a watch designed by Ferdinand A.

It’s powered by an IWC-manufactured 80110-caliber movement with automatic winding and a 44-hour power reserve. Like other watches in the IWC portfolio the watch features a mechanical external/internal rotating bezel, the SafeDive system and luminescent elements. The movement is housed in a 46mm titanium case. The engraving of a deep-sea diver on the case back and the black rubber strap com­plete the sporty appeal of the watch.

Love it? Get it ! Breitling Chronoliner B04 & Chronomat 44

Breitling Chronoliner B04 & Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition Watches Watch Releases

The brand has  garnered attention in the last year for their collaboration with Tudor (as we discussed when looking at the Breitling Superocean Heritage II watches) in producing several new manufacture chronograph calibers such as the Breitling B01 (which Tudor calls the MT5813). Now, nodding toward their long-standing history with aviation, Breitling has released the Breitling Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition and the Chronoliner B04 Boutique Edition. These are limited-edition blue versions of popular Breitling models produced in small quantities of 100 each and available only in Breitling boutiques.

Breitling’s new Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition differs from the standard model most prominently in its blue color theme with a blue “Vietnamese mother-of-pearl” dial and an individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. For those unfamiliar with the model, the Breitling Chronomat 44 is a 44mm stainless-steel, aviation-oriented watch capable of 500m of water resistance and equipped with Breitling and Tudor’s co-designed B01 caliber, a COSC-certified 47-jewel automatic movement manufactured by Breitling with 70 hours of power reserve that oscillates at 28,800bph (4Hz).

Second in their limited series of boutique-only offerings is the Breitling Chronoliner B04, a special version of their Chronoliner which differs from the off-the-shelf version in its inclusion of the Breitling-manufactured B04 movement, blue color scheme, and similarly individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. The 47 jewel, self-winding, 70-hour-power-reserve, in-house-manufactured B04 movement is worthy of special mention for its capability of tracking both a second and third timezone by way of an additional red-tipped hand and a blue ceramic 24-hour bezel which has also been given the blue treatment.

Like it or dislike it? A Yellow Gold Rolex Daytona Ref. 6263

Like it or dislike it?

This week, our highlight is undoubtedly a yellow gold Rolex Daytona ref. 6263, with a truly stunning black dial. We have also selected a pair of dive watches, a 1960s Longines with a tropical dial and a 1970s Zenith with a funky orange dial. And, for diversity’s sake, you will also find a Zenith chronometer featuring the award-winning caliber 135.

Longines Diver Ref. 7150-1, With Tropical Dial

Longines Diver 7150-1

Here it is easy to spot the Super Compressor case, with its characteristic cross-hatched crowns. Manufactured by Piquerez, it relied on the increased water pressure to further seal the case as a diver went deeper and deeper, with a caseback pressed more firmly to the case as the diver progressed. Longines trusted this ingenious case construction for its dive watches from the late 1950s onward, starting with the ref. 7042, before the launch of the ref. 7150 in the early 1960s. The reference switch was accompanied by an increased water resistance to 200m and the replacement of the automatic caliber 19AS with the higher beat movement 290.

Very obviously, the dial has turned brown from age, allowing us to describe it as truly tropical (some light pitting can be observed on the close-up pictures too). The tropicalization is a coveted feature, especially when the phenomenon is homogeneous across the dial’s surface; here it looks stunning, especially with the patinated radium on the handset and painted indexes. The 42mm case remains sharp, with well defined lugs, but the seller notes that the bottom crown is a replacement part. The caseback features the expected diver embossing and the serial number is engraved on the inside.

Longines Diver 7150-1 Tropical

The dealer LunarOyster offers this tropical Longines Diver 7150-1 for $16,000.

Yellow Gold Rolex Daytona Ref. 6263, With Black Sigma Dial

Rolex Daytona Reference 6263

The vintage Rolex Daytona seems ubiquitous in auction catalogs these days, but finding a nice yellow gold one always proves a challenge. Of those, the ref. 6263 is one of the most actively pursued, especially with a black dial. Visually, the appeal is easy to get, the black bezel and back dial contrasting nicely with the yellow gold case. And the screw-down pushers give even more presence to the 37mm case, in addition to the increased water resistance (although we really don’t recommend exposing any vintage Daytona to water nowadays).

The example here shows a sigma dial, with the small symbols placed at the bottom of the dial around the “T-Swiss-T” line. This denomination is consistent with the 1977 production date implied by the serial number engraved on the case. The tritium lume on the handset has taken on a nice patina, but you won’t fail to notice a couple of missing lume plots on the dial. Importantly, this 6263 kept its original pushers and its case was not excessively polished, as evidenced by the curves of the lugs. And the yellow gold rivet bracelet is just the sweet finishing touch, especially since its links remain tightly attached (loose stretch being common on those vintage bracelets).

Rolex Daytona Yellow gold

You can find this this yellow gold Rolex Daytona 6263 listed for $127,800 on Iconic Watch Company.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

What may seem like a few minor design changes here and there actually mean a lot of serious firsts with the new-for-2017 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary model reference 126600, making this replacement of the Sea-Dweller 4000 one of the more important releases of Baselworld 2017.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

First and foremost, let’s begin with the tech specs, as with this new reference 126660, the Rolex Sea-Dweller has received five major updates: first, it has grown from 40mm to 43 millimeters wide, making for a very considerable difference between the Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary and the Submariner (which is 40mm). Second, it received a cyclops over the date, a first for a Rolex Sea-Dweller and as controversial an update as the growth in size. Third, it is now powered not by the 3135 but the updated 3235 caliber (the same as the Datejust 41 reviewed here). Fourth, it has a redesigned bracelet that is now wider and makes for a more secure fit on the wrist. Last, but not least, it pays tribute to the original Sea-Dweller of 1967.

While in this regard the added width makes sense, the new-found cyclops – again, new for the Rolex Sea-Dweller altogether – arguably is an even more controversial decision. The Rolex Sea-Dweller, some argued, from the get-go should have been a larger alternative to the No-Date and Date Submariner models (instead, all three watches thus far had been 40mm wide) – but the cyclops, even Rolex admits, is a less obvious and more controversial addition.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

A lesser-known fact is that the original Rolex Sea-Dweller of 1967 did not have a cyclops because when Rolex added it to the plexiglass front, it caused structural weaknesses in it and ultimately caused it to shatter before reaching the desired depth rating – and so the cyclops was omitted. The Rolex Sea-Dweller all until 2017 has maintained its cyclops-free looks, making yet another reason for it to be a Submariner alternative (as, clearly, not everyone is a fan of the cyclops-look). Now, in this regard, the Rolex Sea-Dweller is more in line with all other collections, with only the Deepsea now standing out from the rest, as it still does not have a cyclops over its date aperture.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

The movement, as we have noted, is the new 3235, an automatic, fully Rolex-designed and -made caliber that complies with Rolex’s -2/+2 second daily accuracy (all details here) and offers an extended 70 hours of power reserve over the previous Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 48 hours. It, hence, features Rolex’s high-capacity mainspring barrel, its Chronergy escapement with paramagnetic nickel-phosphorous pallet fork and escape wheel, Paraflex shock absorbers, Parachrom hairspring, a large balance wheel with Microstella variable inertia lugs and an operating frequency of 4Hz. It is the latest and greatest tech-fest that Rolex can offer at the moment.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

The new Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 904L Oyster bracelet is fitted with an Oysterlock safety clasp, Fliplock extension system for an added 26mm of reach along with the Rolex Glidelock system for 2mm-increment fine adjustments over a distance of 20mm. Typical Rolex Sea-Dweller feats such as the black Cerachrom bezel with PVD-applied platinum numerals, flat front sapphire crystal and 1,220m of water resistance enforced by a helium escape valve inside the left side of the case (see its components below) remain present.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Available exclusively with a black dial with white gold hands and indices and Chromalight lume, the stand-out feature (if we can call it that) here is the red Sea-Dweller designation over the usual depth rating and COSC certification reminder.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Last year, when everyone was expecting a new Daytona, I don’t find it a stretch to say that many were looking forward to seeing something really quite close to the Newman Daytonas of old, or at least a perfect panda dial – and yet, Rolex has decided to tip-toe their way around that. A few years ago, the re-launch of the Pepsi-bezel GMT was also close to its predecessor but very clearly different in its colors than the original. Here, however, we are looking at a clear reference to one of the defining aesthetic elements of an early Rolex collection, making it a small change, but possibly a significant one to many Rolex fans.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

Anyhow, the 43mm-wide Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 is the new and only Rolex Sea-Dweller in town from now on, as it fully replaces the 40mm-wide Sea-Dweller 4000. It looks bold and feels heavy on the wrist, but it carries that heft in a much more balanced manner when compared to how its predecessor had done.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

What truly makes it an interesting step on Rolex’s part is how the new Rolex Sea-Dweller now blends more into the Rolex dive watch range with its cyclops fitted over its date, and how it stands out with its boldly different 43mm-wide diameter. In closing, it is worth imagining what this watch would have been like without the red text and the cyclops but everything as it is now – it would have made for a long-expected update bringing on better proportions and a larger alternative to those who have been on the lookout for something larger than a Submariner but not as bold as the Deepsea.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller Hands-On

As it stands now, however, it certainly cannot be called another safe step from Rolex – they admittedly made the controversial decision of not only considerably upping the size but also adding the cyclops, rendering this a truly new Rolex Sea-Dweller that offers more than a mere face-lift (and not just by Rolex standards). Price for the new Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 isCHF10,800 including tax.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610

WRIST TIME REVIEWS

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Rolex is as much a lifestyle as it is a watch brand, but we feel that a hands-on Rolex Submariner review is still necessary as it is meant to be worn and used. The company is a legend, and their products are the cornerstone of an industry that sells dreams, status, quality and ideally, value. Whether or not individual entities in the luxury industry can deliver on these promises is a different story, but what makes Rolex so famous is its consistent ability to actually deliver these goals to a large degree. So today I look at probably the most popular Rolexproduct, the Rolex Submariner.

For review, I am looking at two Rolex Submariner models in steel. These represent the newest generation Rolex Submariner timepieces and are often referred to as the Rolex Submariner Date and Rolex Submariner No Date. The difference between them should be clear. One has a date window with magnifier over that window on the sapphire crystal, while the No Date has none of that for a cleaner looking dial. While the difference is minor, it is these little differences which are important to Rolex fans, and the price difference between the two is not inconsequential. UPDATE: Check our long-term Rolex Submariner 114060 watch review on aBlogtoWatch for even more.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

While I am very well-versed in all things “watches,” I don’t consider myself to be a Rolex expert compared to many people that I know. I have a basic understanding of the brand’s history, the evolution of its products, and what is appealing about watches like the Rolex Submariner. Other people have extremely detailed knowledge of each and every product, hard-to-find timepieces, differences in products as they evolves, etc… The purpose of this review is to discuss the modern Rolex Submariner to the mainstream watch lovers and those interested in why this is a worthy timepiece. In short, the Rolex Submariner started the dive watch craze that made those types of sport watches the most desirable type of timepiece on the planet – and with its crown logo, the Rolex Submariner thematically rules over the lot.

The Movement

Let me state now that the Rolex Submariner is not the most expensive, most durable, most complicated, or best looking high-end dive watch around. There are dozens of more expensive steel sport watches, and tons that can take much more of a beating. Rolex is also known for making very good, but simple movements (for the most part). Rolex mechanical movements have a reputation for being rather accurate, long-lived, and easy to work on. Many of the watch makers that I’ve spoken to voice positive sentiments in working on Rolex movements. Still, servicing a mechanical watch is not all that cheap.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Inside of these two Rolex Submariner models are two different movements (because one contains the date and the other doesn’t) but practically speaking they are more or less the same. The Rolex Submariner Date (Ref. 116610 AKA 116610LN) contains the in-house made Rolex caliber 3135 automatic movements, while the Rolex Submariner No Date contains the Rolex caliber 3130. Both of the movements feature Rolex’s newer Parachrom hairsprings and have a power reserve of about two days when fully wound. Rolex also has the majority of their watches (including all Rolex Submariner models) COSC Chronometer certified. The 3135 and 3130 are about as good as can be hoped for from relatively basic three-hand automatic movements. No one per se buys a Rolex for the movement, but at the same time, the movements don’t really leave much to be desired given the price and intended use. They are durable and mechanically sound – enough said.

The Design

Rolex claims to have invented the water-tight watch case with the Oyster. True enough, they did produce the first commercially noteworthy water resistant watch with the Oyster. For that reason you see the “Oyster” label on a lot of Rolex products, even though there isn’t a Rolex watch called the Oyster these days. It is a signifier that the watch is water resistant. Of course, the Rolex Submariner is more than just that. Originally designed as a commercial diver’s watch in the 1950s, the Rolex Submariner today has a water resistance of 300 meters and a design that is incredibly similar to the original. This design that mixes sport and professional looks is one of the key factors to the design’s success. The dial of the Rolex Submariner is clever, yet easy on the eyes. The black and white design is meant to offer a high contrast for easy reading of the time. The lumed indicators and hands are meant to make it easy to read in the dark. A different style of hour and minute hand are there for legibility, and a special character for the 12 o’clock indicator is meant to make it easy to mentally orient the dial when looking at it from the side.

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Rolex Submariner Review: 114060 & 116610 Wrist Time Reviews

Rolex also uses 18k white gold on the dial for the hands and hour indicators. A few years ago Rolex switched from a green toned lumed to a blue one. This not only made the lume glow blue, but allows for it to look more white during the day. Rolex also increased the size of the hands and hour markers a few years ago when they introduced their “Maxi dial” style which I personally liked, but of course proved controversial. Every change the brand makes is controversial, even when they did something small such as removing the lug spring bar holes on the exterior of the case. The Rolex Submariner dial is a testament to legibility and functionality. The Rolex Submariner is a tool watch with a slick design that lasted the test of time. It is good because it was never design to be anything more than a good looking, legible dial. It is a tool, and we like tools that work well. Rolex also makes their own dials. Precision machining and printing on the dial is very good. When you look at a Rolex Submariner’s dial closeup, you’ll notice that the lume is evenly applied, and that everything is cut very well.

The Case

Even though the Rolex Submariner is a tool watch at heart, Rolex knows it is a luxury item today. So there are little things here and there meant for looks more than function. A good example is the sapphire crystal. Rolex applies a coat of AR on the bottom of the crystal, but not on the top. This allows for the top of the crystal to be reflective and sort of makes it more shiny to onlookers. This is arguably a design decision by Rolex to make their products stand out more. It works too. The Rolex Submariner case has changed very little over the years, but each improvement is welcome. The current size of the Rolex Submariner is 40mm wide, but it wears large for that size. This is because of the lug structure. I would say that the piece wears closer to a 42mm wide watch.

Rolex famously uses plain casebacks on its watches. The Rolex Submariner’s screw-in caseback is devoid of any markings. The watches I have for review were loaned from our friends at the Rolex boutique nearby in Beverly Hills. We agreed not to remove the protective plastic on the sides of case, which you’ll probably see in the pictures. There is also a type of bar code on the side of the case which is a serial identifier. That is removed when people buy the watch. Rolex uses a grade of steel called 904L. Most steel watches use 316L steel. The differences are minor, but involve more corrosion resistance in 904L steel from what I understand. So if your Rolex Submariner spends a lot of time in saltwater, then it will look better.

It is widely known that Rolex is fanatical about their metal. They do a lot of metallurgy in-house, and not all steel of the same grade is made equal. I’ve seen a lot of steel watches in my time and can say that no one makes steel or polishes a case quite like Rolex – and they so do fantastically using high-tech machines in rather large production volumes. This isn’t about tiny details, but rather that the steel of a Rolex Submariner looks and feels a bit different than the steel of other watches. This is of course due in part thanks to Rolex’s amazing brushed finishing that is applied to much of the Rolex Submariner case. Other parts of the case (such as the sides) are given a polished finish. These “alternating finishes” help the case to look its best.

Around the dial is a rotating diver’s bezel which is more or less a standard element on the majority of dive watches. This bezel can be turned by your hand and gives you the ability to line up the 12 o’clock point with the minute hand to measure something that is up to 60 minutes long. This has a purpose while diving, but most people use it to measure short things like parking meters and cooking times while being an at-home chef. The bottom line is that even though the Rolex Submariner is a diver’s watch, a very small percentage of the people who own it dive. Why buy a dive watch then? Well it is really about an appreciation for what a dive watch can do and what it represents. Activity, durability and exploration. While we aren’t engaged in these things all the time, we like to keep capable items near us.

The rotating bezel on the Submariner used to have an aluminum insert with the minute indicators printed on it, but a few years ago Rolex moved over to making ceramic bezels. This was a distinct upgrade and Rolex calls their ceramic “Cerachrom.” Sounds fancy right? The production process of the bezel include engraved numerals and lume. Some dive watches have lume in the entire bezel, but the Submariner is more traditional with a single lume point (pip) at 12 o’clock. The black ceramic bezel is shinier than aluminum, but is much more durable and very scratch resistant. Ceramic bezels are a wonderful thing. Among the various Rolex Submariner models available you can get ceramic bezels in black, blue, and green.

On the wrist, the Rolex Submariner is a very comfort friendly watch. Rolex has had literally decades to improve the design. It feels so natural on your wrist and for a dive watch it doesn’t have a very tall profile either. There is a good reason that many people choose the Rolex Submariner as a daily wear. Aside from being very comfortable, the Rolex Submariner has the added quality of looking good on most wrists. Plus, it has versatile style that seemingly works with everything from jeans and t-shirt to practically a tuxedo. Very few watches can claim that.

The Bracelet

Rolex offered a significant bracelet upgrade for its newest generation Rolex Submariner models. The most important elements of the upgrade are the bracelet’s profile and ability to be micro-adjusted. More on that in a second. For years, the Rolex Submariner bracelet was a three-link tapering steel bracelet. Tapering means that the lugs get narrower closer to the deployant clasp. This actually helps the bracelet be more comfortable, and visually makes the case look a bit larger. Few brands make bracelets with tapering links because it increases the numbers of part types they need to produce to make them. Though I recommend tapering bracelets when they are available.

For many years, Rolex deployant clasps stuck out awkwardly under your wrist. With the newest generation bracelets, they offer a much more clean profile – which was a welcome improvement. A lot of people buy the Rolex Submariner over other Rolex watches because of its Glidelock adjustment system. The idea is that you can micro-adjust the size of the bracelet within a few millimeters on the fly. This means that as your wrist naturally expands, you can re-size the bracelet with ease, or increase the size of the bracelet to be worn over a jacket or dive suit. The design and comfort of the bracelet should not be under-estimated, nor should you ignore these elements as a major selling point behind this model of Rolex watch. Sadly Rolex doesn’t offer the Glidelock system with even similar watches such as the Explorer II – though you can get it in the beefier Deepsea models. As an interesting tangent, you should check out the spring-loaded system thatRolex/Tudor designed for the Pelagos here.

The Value

Now it all comes down to cost in the end. For some people a Rolex Submariner is a cheap daily wear, but for many people it is an item of aspiration with a price in the several thousand dollars. Over the years, the price of Rolex Submariner watches has creeped up to rather ambitious levels. Rolex still sells them in large quantities. The good news is that unlike many luxury watches, Rolex timepieces tend to hold value very well, and that is especially the case with the Rolex Submariner. While you probably aren’t going to get rich buying one, you will likely be able to resell it for a price close to what you paid for it. That is good news for people who like to upgrade or switch watches every few years, or if you are in a financial pinch.

As I said, the Rolex Submariner Date and No Date models have two different prices attached to them. The difference in price has to do with the date complication and really depends on what you like. Though the roughly $1,000 difference is appreciable. Some people hate the “cyclops” magnifier on the dial and love the clean look of a simple dial. Others feel that it is only a real Rolex with the date window and crystal bubble. For the Rolex Submariner Date ref. 116610LN the price is$8,550, and the Rolex Submariner 114060 is retails for $7,500.

We also have same type, the price is lower a lot, if you are interested in, please feel free to contact us.
