Chopard presents two new L.U.C Quattro models, beating to the rhythm of one of the greatest success stories of Chopard Manufacture, the four-barrel L.U.C 98.01-L movement launched in 2005. One of these two new elegant and refined interpretations comes with a Breitling replica watches uk rose gold case framing a brown dial, while the other is the first of its kind in platinum, with a blue-grey dial. They are bound to delight devotees of Haute Horlogerie as well as those with a penchant for distinctive design.
In 2010, for its 150th anniversary,Chopard had unveiled a new aesthetic for its L.U.C collection with four original timepieces: the L.U.C Louis-Ulysse – The Tribute, Engine One, All In One and 1937 models. Since then, the new creations in the collection have followed in the prestigious footsteps of these forerunners. This year’s crop includes two new variations of the L.U.C Quattro, which is protected by two patents for its four-barrel movement, a world first at the time of its launch in 2005.
A unique movement, patented technology
Hand-wound L.U.C Calibre 98-01.L is equipped with four stacked, series-coupled barrels. This patented technology enables the L.U.C Quattro to enjoy more than nine days of operating autonomy and a Panerai replica watches constant regularity of rate ensuring it meets all the requirements for certification by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The exhibition back will enable aficionados of fine horological mechanisms to admire the L.U.C 98.01-L movement with its bridges bearing Côtes de Genève and stamped with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, a guarantee of its quality and its impeccable finishing.
A refined new aesthetic
This year, the two new versions in rose gold and platinum, respectively fitted with brown and blue-grey sunburst satin-brushed dials swept over by L.U.C hands inspired by the Dauphine style, endow this model with a modern and sophisticated elegance.
The subtly refined details of the generous 43 mm-diameter rose gold and platinum case instil it with a timeless air of noble distinction, while the characteristic curves of the L.U.C collection give the lugs a masculine and contemporary allure. The satin-brushed case middle along with the polished bezel and the exhibition caseback, accentuate the shape of the Breitling fake watches by creating subtle contrasts and light effects. These alternating polished and satin-brushed zones reflect the workmanship on the movement, of which each part is adorned with unique and meticulous finishing.
A hand-sewn brown or navy blue alligator leather strap with alligator lining lends an ultimate touch of elegance to the two new L.U.C. Quattro models.
IWC upgraded its Ingenieur collection of sports Breitling replica watches in 2013, incorporating design touches inspired by the brand’s partnership with the Mercedes-Benz AMG Petronas Formula One racing team. Among the models in the line is the Ingenieur Chronograph Silberpfeil, which pays tribute to a classic race car.
The Chronograph Silberpfeil is named for the Mercedes-Benz W25 Silver Arrow (“Silberpfeil” in German), which famously got its name from a race at the Nürburgring in 1934 in which the Mercedes pit crew stripped the white paint off of the car to enable it to achieve its weight limit and revealed its silvery aluminum bodywork.
The watch’s dial, available in either silver or brown, sports a cloud-like perlage pattern of overlapping circles — in Omega replica watchmaking, usually found only on movement plates and bridges — that evokes the dashboard of the legendary Mercedes race car. The red elements on the dial, including the center-mounted chronograph seconds hand, echo the look of the Silver Arrow’s tachymeter and revolutions counter. The date display is integrated into the seconds subdial at 6 o’clock.
The strap, which bonds a calfskin-inlay leather outer layer with an inner layer of rubber, is also reminiscent of 1930s motor racing tradition, in which sturdy leather straps were commonly found on drivers’ overalls and in the cockpits and bonnets of their vehicles. Stainless steel bracelets with fine-adjustment clasps are also available. The solid, stainless-steel caseback features an engraved illustration of the Mercedes W25 Silver Arrow race car.
IWC’s in-house chronograph movement, Caliber 89361, powers the Breitling fake watch’s signature function, a chronograph with a flyback mechanism. The dial’s design enables stopped hours and minutes to be read easily on the same subdial at 12 o’clock. The central seconds counter can be used in conjunction with the tachymeter scale around the dial to calculate speeds. The flyback function is engineered with racing pit stops in mind: pressing the reset button returns the seconds hand instantly to zero and immediately starts timing another sequence. IWC’s Pellaton winding system — developed by technical director and longtime Mercedes racing enthusiast Albert Pellaton — enables the movement to maintain a power reserve of 68 hours.
Since its inception, the Longines DolceVita collection has illustrated contemporary elegance of the Longines Swiss Breitling replica watchmaking brand worldwide. Inspired by the “Dolce Vita”, it is an homage to the sweetness of life. Today, a new chapter in this collection opens with a unique interpretation featuring softened lines. These new variations will not fail to impress women who have made charm a way of life.
A worthy heir to a tradition where elegance takes the leading role, the Longines DolceVita collection has met with widespread global success since its inception. Inspired by the Italian sweet life, the “Dolce Vita”, it is worn on the wrists of women who know how to make the most of life’s simple pleasures. As a tribute to those women, Longines has decided to offer a new interpretation of this collection, subtly combining geometric lines with soft curves. The lines of the rectangular case have thus been elongated and arched, some models enhanced with diamonds, to magnify the contemporary elegance and femininity of these new pieces.
These new decidedly feminine and charming designs will not fail to delight women who boast a IWC replica watches uk joyful, carefree attitude and love to wear adornment that reflects their style for a happy and colourful picnic at the racetrack.
Cased in steel, and sometimes decorated with diamonds, the Longines DolceVita collection comes in four dimensions. A silver-coloured “flinqué” dial adorned with painted Roman numerals and a black lacquered or white mother-of-pearl dial with diamonds decorates the Breitling fake watches uk of this line. Slender rhodium-plated or blued-steel hands point to the passing hours and minutes. With their quartz movement, the timepieces are finished by a choice of black, white, grey or red leather straps or by a stainless steel bracelet.
What was still only a prototype in 2014 has now become a reality. At Baselworld 2015, Ulysse Nardin brought out the Ulysse Anchor Tourbillon, a limited-edition piece. This Breitling replica watches uk is most notable for being the first with Ulysse Nardin’s proprietary constant force escapement system, made entirely out of silicon.
This escapement is front and center on the dial thanks to the tourbillon mechanism. The Anchor Tourbillon has a dial in grand feu enamel with an aperture at 6 o’clock to reveal the tourbillon. At the top of this opening is a 140-degree arc, which bears the scale for the power reserve. A blue arrow points to the remaining amount of winding. The Cartier replica watches uk has two barrels for a minimum power reserve of seven days; the dial is marked for eight days in total. The movement, known as Caliber UN-178, runs in 29 jewels at a low frequency of 18,000 vph. It is manually wound.
The escapement was in development for eight years. It has a circular frame with a pallet fork in its center. This pallet fork is held in place by two blade springs, each less than a micron thick: that’s one tenth the width of a human hair. The blades are perpendicular to one another and snap back and forth as the escapement oscillates; UN likens the metal’s movement to that of a snapping hair clip. There is no pallet staff needed, and the pallet arms pivot back and forth due to the tensile energy of the blade springs. The redesigned pallet fork requires less energy from the balance wheel in order to reach its tipping point, which means that the oscillations of the balance can maintain a constant rate. Every part of the escapement is made of silicon, which makes it both lightweight and more durable.
The Ulysse Anchor Tourbillon comes in a 44-mm gold case, in the UN Classico design. It is available in white gold or rose gold; 18 pieces of each edition will be produced. It has a nonreflective sapphire crystal and a sapphire caseback, through which you can see a series of elegant bridges. The fake Breitling watches is water resistant to 30 meters. It comes on a brown or black leather strap with a pin buckle. In rose gold it costs $89,400; in white gold it’s $93,600.
