IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions

This IWC has manufacture calibre 89361, a chronograph movement with a flyback function. This self-winding movement has a power reserve of 68 hours. The height of the watch is 14.2mm, which is not super thin but for a flyback chronograph, it is fine. It also suits the watch.

It surprised me that IWC didn’t come up with a beautiful combination like this themselves, as they are very keen on bringing out stylish watches. Talking about stylish, the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions comes on a very nice brown alligator strap. Although not specifically mentioned in the information we received from Bucherer, it appears to be one of those straps made by shoe-maker Santoni.

When Bucherer teamed up with Tudor for their Blue Editions collection, we received quite some emails and messages from people who wanted one badly but were a bit annoyed that they couldn’t purchase it in the United States. These watches appear only in the Bucherer boutiques in Europe and they are not willing to ship. You really need to pick them up yourself. On the one hand, this keeps it exclusive (although you’ll find them for sale on the well-known online marketplaces in BNIB condition) but on the other hand, it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to the people who want one badly (and thus support your boutiques) and ship them.

With a limited run of just 88 pieces, this IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions (it still can be pronounced by taking one deep breath) is not only exclusive by its price tag of €21.900,-, but also by the low number of watches that are available. Based on the classic IWC Portugieser Chronograph, one of my favourite models from this Schaffhausen manufacture, Bucherer added a couple of cool things in the mix. A beautiful red gold case in 42mm with a stunning blue dial. Combined with the red gold hands and hour markers, it is a very nice variant on the existing red gold IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic reference IW390301 with silver dial.

THE IWC PORTUGIESER ANNUAL CALENDAR REF. 5035

A watch I wore a lot and I loved the finish on the case and bracelet as well as the in-house caliber 80110 movement. However, at some point I did a trade-up for another watch and had to let a couple of watches go, including this IWC Ingenieur. Up to this day, there are two IWC collections that I really prefer over all others; the Ingenieur and the Portugieser. The Ingenieur for the reasons mentioned above, and the Portugieser mainly for its aesthetics. What is not to like about the design of the IWC Portugieser?

A few years ago, when I was still in banking, I noticed that IWC became the new Rolex for many colleagues. Where the Rolex Submariners, Datejusts, Day-Dates and – of course – Daytonas were part of the appearance of many colleagues for many years, there was a clear shift going on to IWC watches. My explanation for this would be that IWC changed its direction a bit from being a manufacturer of tool watches to being the manufacturer of watches for a wide(r) audience. Understandable. At that time I also decided to buy an IWC; an Ingenieur ref. 3227-01. Based on the heritage of a pure tool watch, but with the finish and elegance of a modern wearable mechanical timepiece.

 IWC celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Portugieser watch. A name that wasn’t used before 1993 though, when IWC resurrected the Portugieser collection. You have to know, that back in the day, a lot of brands (including IWC) only used a reference number to indicate a particular watch. Using collection and model names is something that wasn’t very common in the first half of the 20th century. The IWC Portugieser goes back to 1940, when two importers from Lisbon, Portugal, requested a large pocket watch sized wristwatch for their clients.

IWC created such a watch, with a very unusual 41,5mm diameter for that time, when the average mens watch had a diameter between 30 and 35 mmm. The reason for the Portuguese business men to request a wristwatch with a large diameter was that pocket watches had a better accuracy due to the larger movement, and thus larger balance. IWC used their hunter style pocket watches caliber 74 and 98 for this new project to ensure accuracy for the wristwatch. The first “Portugieser” watch was actually referred to as ‘325’ and was in production from 1939 till 1981 in different sub versions. The first version came with the mentioned caliber 74 movement (in production till 1951) and not long after its introduction, in 1944, there was a second version with caliber 98. This 325-2 reference was in production till 1971. A third version of the 325, was in production from 1977 till 1980 and was referred to as the “German edition” and IWC only produced 57 of those. In total, IWC made 690 reference 325 watches.

However today, we are looking at the IWC Portugieser Annual Calendar Ref. 3035. A piece that was introduced during the SIHH last January. To be brutally honest, I wasn’t very enthusiastic when I laid my eyes on it for the first time when I was in Geneva. The apertures for the day, date and month were very “present” and turning the watch up side down, it looked like the watch was smiling at you. However, in the flesh that was something that I quickly forgot about again. The watch looks beautiful on the wrist and I think it is nice to have all functions at hand (in one view) when it concerns an annual calendar. I also recently had the Moser & Cie Endeavor Perpetual Calendar for a review in my possession and it only shows the date and has an arrow for the month indicator.

Breitling Chronomat Automatic GMT

Image result for Breitling Chronomat Automatic GMT

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

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

Breitling was one of the very first Swiss watchmakers to produce generously oversized men’s wristwatches in the early 2000’s and the Breitling Chronomat Automatic GMT makes a bold statement on the wrist with a stout 47mm diameter, 19mm thick case in polished premium grade stainless steel. The handsome brown leather strap with contrasting white stitched detail adds distinction.

The unidirectional rotating bezel with engraved markers surrounds the dark brown dial with a tachymeter outer dial, three silver-colored sub-dials, a red arrow GMT hand, luminous hands and hour markers. Features include an automatic date window, small-second, 30-minute and 12-hour countdown timers.

The left-facing crown and push-pieces add distinction. The black dial features small-second, 30-minture and 12-hour sub-dials, an automatic date calendar and black sword hands. An smei-exhibition skeleton caseback lets you see the intricate movement inside.Features include a glare-proof, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal above the dial along with a locking screw-down crown and case back for water-resistance to 200 meters or 660 feet.

Bell & Ross watches

The BR S is a 39 mm urban interpretation of the iconic Bell & Ross BRS Grey Camouflage Replica Watch. It is stamped with an «S» to denote how Smaller, Sleeker and Smarter it is than its big sibling. BR S models are the last word in elegance and technical ingenuity. They are designed for everyday use, ensuring that their ergonomic case, with its perfectly sleek lines and the use of select materials, appeals equally to men and women.

Bell & Ross BRS Grey Camouflage

When it is time to decide, women will naturally choose the models in the BR S collection: timepieces that have become an ornament for the wrist, in which the sophisticated materials are a showcase for the jewels. Conceived in the purest tradition of Swiss watchmaking, the BR S GREY CAMOUFLAGE is water-resistant to 100 metres and features the latest generation of Swiss quartz movements, a guarantee of precision and reliability.

Bell & Ross watches occupy a distinctive place in the watch market today because they are made to resist extreme conditions that most men go through in their challenging professions.  For instance, Bell & Ross watches are made to resist excessive temperatures, which is good for men who work as firemen or even bomb-disposal experts.  Bell & Ross watches are also made to withstand violent accelerations and above-normal pressures, which makes it ideal for pilots, astronauts, and even divers.  The manufactures made sure that all Bell & Ross watches are readable, precise, and high-performing.  They even added water resistant to that list of qualities to broaden the scope of its function.

Tag Heuer to Rolex: How luxury watch brands are responding to the Apple Watch

Swiss watchmaker Montblanc, on the other hand, seems to be guided by the idea that since technology is fleeting and soon rendered obsolete, a quality watch should last for many decades with proper care. Therefore, Montblanc put the technology into an electronic watch band that will be released next month, which displays emails, has an activity tracker, can control the music in the user’s phone, and has a selfie-enabling trigger for the user’s phone camera. The e-strap goes for $390 and is for use with its TimeWalker watches, which range $3,700 to $5,800.

It hardly comes as shocking news that luxury watches tend to be expensive. PaneraisPatek Philippes, and Rolexes retail for thousands, if not tens of thousands, and are built to be passed down from generation to generation – which is wonderful if you’re ready to make a significant investment and less-than-wonderful if you’re just looking for a timepiece to flash around for a bit. High costs have traditionally led to prolonged windowshopping and capitulation (in the form of a trip to Casio), but new websites are now making the used watch market more transparent and accessible for first-time buyers.

There are also size considerations. Modern watches tend towards the alarm clock, but dial back forty years and faces rarely exceeded 40mm. “It can be more appealing for someone who enjoys watches but who doesn’t want people ogling what’s on their wrist,” says Morgan.

If you’re daintier of arm, plumping for pre-owned could mean you actually find a watch that fits, rather than wearing something that makes you look as if you might’ve just nicked your dad’s.

Omega Dark Side of The Moon

The Omega Speedmaster has remained a mainstay for watch enthusiasts for over half a century. It’s not a stretch at all to call this watch an icon, a term we don’t throw around loosely here. While purists may scoff at the concept of an all-black Speedmaster, it is precisely this kind of update that brings a historical icon into the realm of contemporary thinking. When presented with the opportunity to wear the new Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon for a week, I couldn’t refuse. It’s a watch I had been eyeing for some time, and while it isn’t exactly perfect, it certainly got me thinking and was tough to take off my wrist when the week was up.

The replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of The Moon has PVD black finished case that is made of 316 stainless steel, the case diameter is measured to be 42.5mm and 14mm thick. Black Tachymeter bezel is made of ceramic, there are white printings on it. Black dial is protected by arch-shaped sapphire crystal, the dial has refined layout design. Two subdials are seperately positioned at 3 and 9 o’clock. To give users a high readability, the black dial features all printings and markers in white color. The subdial at 3 is for 24-hour display, please notice the small dial at 9, the small hand is not for seconds, but maybe working as 60-minute chronograph hand I think. All stick hour markers are applied lume material like hands. The replica watch will give a strong green lume light at night.

Black nylon strap features a normal pin buckle that is pvd black finished. The front side of the band is made of nylon while its inside part is made of black leather, this design could offer better wearing comfort. On the solid case back, there is “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON” printing in white, on the central part, a big Seamaster logo is curved.

Inside the case back, you will find the replica Omega uses a quartz movement, it is a Japanese OS20 that could be more accurate and offer a more durable lifetime.

The Dark Side of the Moon isn’t the right watch for everyone, though this can be said about many other wristwatches. However, even if ceramic isn’t your cup of tea, there’s no denying that this watch achieves the right balance between modern looks and technical prowess to make doubters reconsider their stance. This is a great watch.

Difference of IWC Schaffhausen and Watch Mark XVIII

IWC Schaffhausen is launching the fake Pilot’s Watches Mark XVIII as an entry-level model with a calfskin strap or stainless-steel bracelet. It takes up the tradition of the Mark 11 and, like its predecessor, is the epitome of an observer’s watch with down-to-the-second accuracy: precise, robust, temperature-resistant, water-resistant, protected against magnetic fields and extremely service-friendly.

Image result for Difference of IWC Schaffhausen and Watch Mark XVIII

 

Here we have on display two of these watches; however, although they seem very similar, there are differences between them as one is a replica watch and the other is an original IWC Pilot Working Power Reserve

The first difference that we can notice when looking at the replica watch is the fact that the mark for 3 o’clock is longer than on the original watch, also making the design look slightly bigger. However, this is a difference that can be very hard to spot and probably people would have a hard time spotting it even with these two watches put next to each other like we have them here.

The last difference between these two watches is at the mark for 9 o’clock, a mark that it is slightly different on the original watch than on the replica; it appears to be longer on the original watch and shorter on the replica watch. Even if these differences appear to be many, these two watches are very alike in the end.

In the replica swiss Pilot’s Watches Mark XVIII, we find two new models in stainless steel that have one feature in common: a reduction to the essentials. Unlike the previous version, the Mark XVII, the new models no longer have a triple date display and have been reduced by one millimetre to 40.

Replica Panerai Radiomir 1940

PAM 690, which is published by Panerai in 2016, is an extremely harmonious watch, if you have noticed its dial, the metallic blue texture is the biggest feature of PAM 690. The watch belongs to Radiomir 1940 series of Panerai, so it has the most authentic features of Radiomir. Unlike modern Radiomir case, I see the case of Radiomir 1940 is very similar to Luminor’s. Actually, the design of Luminor case is exactly derived from Radiomir watch. Besides the lack of crown bridge, the case of PAM 690 is very close to Luminor case.

The replica is made by S factory, which has made several pieces of high quality Panerai replica watches with clone P.3000 movement that features 72-hour power reserve. The case is very large, its diameter is 47mm, which is bigger than most Rolex Submariner watches but much thinner than them. The case and bezel are polished, the PAM reference and OP number are engraved on the case between lugs. Case back is see-through that is displaying the mechanism of the replica PAM 690.

Metallic blue dial gives a hit to the appearance of the whole watch. The dial is sandwiched, the disc below is applied with luminescence that has the same tone as leather strap, the top disc is in blue color, it is like a mirror. The tone of hands is also the same as that of leather band. The dial is perfectly in line with the leather strap color. By the way, the small second hand is running on the subdial at 9 o’clock.

Meanwhile, the replica Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic becomes the first titanium model in the family with a combination between a grade 2 caseband and a grade 5 titanium bezel and crown. Despite this contemporary fusion of materials, chosen to complement the chocolate brown dial, the appearance of the Radiomir 1940 remains otherwise classic, with a large 45mm cushion case and pure minimalistic lines.

The dial could also supply a strong green light in the dark, in my opinion, this is a good diving-style watch that completely exceeds your expectation.

The watch is 1:1 replicated from the original watch, every detail is cloned according to genuine and the replica has the same function as per the genuine watch. The case looks strong and robust, it is measured 51mm in diameter, and 23mm thick. There are three things on the replica that make it have a good waterproof performance, first, the three crown buttons are screwed down tightly, these buttons are securely inserted into the case and have waterproof gasket inside, two chrono pushers could only be operated if you loose the steel guards around. The crystal inserted into the case is also very thick, this could withstand a high pressure when diving in deep sea. The black bezel is locked down in the case by six steel screws, so the bezel could perfectly fit the case and has no gap. In a word, the watch has a perfect water resistance which other replicas could not comapre.
