Breitling Super Avenger Military Limited Series Watch With 24 Hour Time
Article publié le 13/06/2014
All-black and delightfully "mean," the breitling replica uk Super Avenger Military is a rare example of a 24 hour watch. In the United States we refer to 24-hour-format time as military time. That is because here, it is primarily the military that uses this format while civilians use a 12 hour format. We are partial to our AMs and PMs. Many who live or travel outside of the US know the the 24 hour format is used heavily all over the world for a range of purposes from television schedules to movie times. Having said that, if you want an analog watch (mechanical or otherwise) that indicates the time in a 24 hour format you have precious few options. Though, you are in luck if you want to wear a digital watch full time. This new Super Avenger Military Limited Series timepiece takes the excellent looks of the Breitling Avenger and combines them with the brand's Calibre 22 automatic movement that displays 24-hour-versus-12-hour format time. We last saw use of this movement in the Franck Muller replica uk watch (hands-on here). Also a limited edition watch, the Navitimer Cosmonaute was much more retro in style, and clearly a Navitimer in design. It was also just 41.5mm wide, and this Super Avenger is much more modern (and larger). At 48mm wide in black-coated steel, the Super Avenger Military is a pretty solid looking timepiece. Do you like the stencil style font on the dial? The case is also water-resistant to 300 meters and comes on a military-style canvas strap. It also has a diver-style rotating bezel. The Calibre 22 automatic chronograph movement has a 12 hour chronograph and the date, in addition to offering the time in a 24 hour format (that I imagine takes some getting used to in terms of reading it at a glance). The movement is also COSC Chronometer certified. I don't know how much use I would get from a 24-hour-format dial, but then again I am not in the military. These types of watches are in demand from select groups - which is probably why this is a limited edition. Though I do really like the Super Avenger collection of A.Lange&Sohne replica uk. If you are looking for something modern and masculine and really want a mechanical watch with the time displayed in a 24 hour format, then one of your few choices is the Super Avenger Military.

Franck Muller Vintage Curvex 7-Days Power Reserve Watch
Article publié le 13/06/2014
Someday I'd like to hear the real story of Franck Muller's history as a watch brand. As a timepiece maker it is a fascinating company that has done a lot and gained a laudable amount of popularity for a high-end exclusive watch maker. Having said that, the Franck Muller group has certainly had its series of ups and downs from severe economic woes to quasi-scandals. The brand has been admired as helping to bring the luxury watch into new areas of culture with innovative marketing and some very unique watches (such as the Crazy Hour), but at the same time have a bit of a struggle in certain sectors where they are overcoming a reputation for quality issues. Oh, to be in the high-end watch business! The Franck Muller replica uk of today is more restrained and simple that its former self. While the air of avant garde still remains, as a brand they have consolidated and are trying to focus on what really works for them. A few months ago the rumor of a new entry-level in-house movement hinted at the upcoming release of these Vintage Curvex 7-Days Power Reserve models. And here they are. Fresh from Geneva with that iconic Curvex (which most people call tonneau) shaped case and a new long-power reserve movement. The models seen are just the gold versions, they will be offered in steel as well. The press release from Franck Muller focused almost entirely on the movement and not the A.Lange&Sohne replica uk themselves. I truly hate when that happens, as it makes it most difficult to tell people exactly what they will be able to buy. What's with the cloak and dagger approach Franck Muller? Having said that I am pretty sure that the watches will be in the 35.90mm wide x 50.30mm tall versions of the Curvex case... or something very close. I have to say that Franck Muller (for me) is the brand that made tonneau-shaped cases seem wearable. Before Franck Muller, I felt this style of case only looked good on the wrists of men with extremely plump fingers who regularly smoke cigars. Why Franck Muller decided to place their new in-house made FM 1700 caliber movement in a Vintage styled watch isn't clear to me. The new Vintage Curvex breitling replica uk isn't much different than most other models, save for some dial details. One version has a railroad track style minute marker ring, while other versions have more clean dials with just the hour markers and that iconic Franck Muller font. Light and dark dial options with gold trim make for an attractive appearance. As I have mentioned, the movement is the new Franck Muller in-house made FM 1700. It is a manually wound movement with a full week of power reserve. Going in line with the "Vintage" part of the name, the movement has a slower operating speed of 18,000 bph which no doubt helps it keep such a long power reserve. Over on the dial you can appreciate the movement's complications. The subsidiary seconds dial is slightly recessed within a nice looking gold ring, and the power reserve indicator is one of the piece's most distinctive elements. In the past I've seen several Franck Muller watches with highly diminutive power reserve indicators. On the one hand I love this. The indicator is small and out of the way, but there when you need it. I've said many times that I simply don't like wearing the majority of manually wound movement based watches if they don't have a power reserve indicator. It feels like I am driving a car without a fuel gauge. The power reserve indicator is small enough to not disrupt the dial in any significant way, which is great. So the only bad news is that some people need it to be larger. Either they have trouble reading the tiny numbers on the disc in the dial, or they keep their watches off their wrist and like to see from afar whether the watch needs winding or not. So while the out-of-the-way nature of the power reserve indicator is a blessing, it is also a curse for some people as it will be too small to use. The design of the FM 1700 is pleasant but not overly distinctive. It does the job though and is viewable through a sapphire caseaback window. I look forward to seeing the new Franck Muller Vintage Curvex 7-Days Power Reserve watches hands-on soon.

Breitling Navitimer 01 Watch Review 2
Article publié le 12/06/2014
Another nice touch is that the hands for each of these tally subdial is done in the same shiny stainless steel as the case, however, the background is silvery white with a radiating pattern that contrasts well with the black dial and silver hands. The result is a watch with a really distinctive look, especially since the rotating slide rule background is also of that same silvery white finish. Truly an elegant, unique instrument style, that is recognizable from a crowded chronograph pilot watch market… The most understated part of this Navitimer 01 is also one of my favorite features, the strap and excellent folding clasp and buckle. The black calf leather strap is padded and has a really nice heavy white stitching that matches well the black/white dial. The leather is soft but yet thick and the padding makes it very comfortable once adjusted. Adjusting the strap is easily done by pulling on the end of the strap that is loose over the folding clasp. The clasp and buckle are in the same shiny stainless steel and the buckle has the brand's B-winged logo applied and raised. Another brilliant design touch. The buckle easily clicks into place while securely helping wrap the strap on the wrist. This ease of adjustment was really useful on a recent trip to Hawaii where I wore it all day. And at 120 grams the watch is light which also contributes to making the Navitimer 01 simply a joy to wear. A serious instrument, yet so light and comfortable that you can forget you have it with you. At 43 mm the Navitimer is not a small watch, however, due to the center black dial and the surrounding silvery white slide rule, the watch wears and appears smaller. The recessed vase-like shape of the Navitimer's dial also contributes to this illusion. The Navitimer 01 (reference AB012012-BB01) is not a limited edition and comes with the black leather strap shown here or options for brown leather or for a metal bracelet (two types). The steel version on black leather strap (shown here) goes for $7,945, the basic stainless steel bracelet goes for $9,020, while a rose gold version is priced at $20,100 on leather and at least $5,000 more for the gold bracelet. breitling replica uk does offer a limited edition of the Navitimer 01 in steel that, as far as I can tell, has four hardly noticeable changes from the one reviewed here. Differences are: 1) a white gold B-winged logo on the dial instead of yellow gold, 2) the date aperture has white background with red digits instead of black background and white digits, 3) the serial number (up to 2000) is engraved on the side of the case, and 4) a sapphire crystal caseback showing the in-house B01 movement. Of these changes, the only one I wish mine also had is the see-through caseback... Overall I am highly satisfied with the Navitimer 01, and as my first introduction to Breitling watches I think I could not have picked a better model. While certainly a noticeable Franck Muller replica uk with a "blingy" look, the contrasting black and silvery white dial give it the feel of a true instrument. The accuracy of the chronograph due to that in-house C.O.S.C caliber 01 movement and the various features of the dial make it a utility watch that I can geek out with for hours while also reminding me of one of the 20th century greatest human achievement: aviation. If I have any negative opinions about this watch is that I have yet to master, without referring to the manual, the various features of the dial. Also, this is not a watch you want to get wet. It's listed at 30 meters water resistant, however, the dealer and Breitling (via the manual) are pretty clear about this: do not submerge it... I guess, the slide rule, while super cool, does have a clear shortcoming. If you want a classic pilot A.Lange&Sohne replica uk that has strong real history and that only got better with a new in-house movement, but is now guaranteed for five years, the Breitling Navitimer 01 should be on the top of your list. You are getting a superb timepiece with real pedigree and a brand that, maybe like no other, has a passion and dedication to aviation that is unquestionable.

Breitling Navitimer 01 Watch Review 1
Article publié le 12/06/2014
Written by Michael Maximilien The Breitling Navitimer 01 is the first Navitimer with the new in-house Breitling B01 movement. The Navitimer is maybe one of a handful of original classic aviator watch designs and Breitling can claim that it's the only wristwatch chronograph in continuous production for more than 50 years. With the B01 movement, Breitling has recently extended the guarantee of the Navitimer 01 to five years from the typical industry standard of two years. Another important historical fact is that the Navitimer was first released around the time of the invention of the automatic chronograph (late 60s) in collaboration with brands like Heuer, Hamilton, and Zenith. And like all Breitling watches, the Navitimer 01 is certified C.O.S.C. However, it is fair to ask what makes this A.Lange&Sohne replica uk special and deserving of your horological time and passion and of maybe your emotional and monetary investments? Well, like most Breitling watches, it has a certain "bling" to it and that makes it easily noticeable. Part of the reason is that Breitling uses a highly polished steel case and the classic Navitimer fluted ring on the bezel. However, this Navitimer does have differentiating touches from previous versions.First, what has not changed is the patented Breitling style and super busy dial that somehow remains legible. The dial is black with three silvery white subdials and a silvery white slide rule ring at the periphery that turns smoothly with the bezel yet with also a measured resistance. Like all Navitimers, the dial includes three concentric rings of markers that essentially transforms the watch into an analog computer. If you know how to use it, that is... Using the slide-rule (the bezel) and the chronograph function, one can measure average speed and productivity rate, perform various calculations such as currency conversion, multiply and divide numbers, calculate ground speed and miles per minute, calculate rate of climb or descent, gas consumption, and of course elapsed time. Using the bezel and the current position of the sun in the sky, you can also use the Navitimer as a compass. And, if this was not enough for your analog computing pleasures, the solid caseback includes, along with the unique serial number of the Franck Muller replica uk, a Celsius to Fahrenheit table to easily convert temperatures. A recent post (How to Use a Watch Bezel Slide Rule) this summer on aBlogToWatch.com explained how to use these types of computing bezel slide rules. Two really nice touches on the busy dial are first the brand's anchored B-winged logo applied and raised in yellow gold and second, a surprisingly great, yet minimal, application of Super-LumiNova. The lume is applied on the hour and minutes hands and applied as square dots on the hour markers. While at first you would think that this won't make a difference in night legibility, it actually results in a dial that is quite legible in the dark. You only need to charge the lume for a few minutes and voilà, you can tell the time in the dark for a few hours. The date window (not lumed) between 4 and 5 o'clock integrates nicely with the dial and subtly, yet visibly, shows the date in white with a black background. But what maybe is the most important aspect of this Navitimer and also explains the nice, short, 01 moniker is the movement. It's the first Breitling manufacture movement, the B01. This is the same movement used in the Chronomat B01 and other newer breitling replica uk models. That same movement is also the basis for the Breitling B02 and B03 in-house variations. It is a classic column-wheel chronograph design which is typically agreed by most to be a better design for a chronograph than alternatives like lever or cam actuated movements. While being a common design and not revolutionary, creating a new completely in-house column wheel chronograph is no small feat and pushing the guarantee to five years shows the brand's confidence on the reliability of that new movement. Additionally, the 01 movement has a quick date change feature as well as a hacking second. On top of this, you get almost three full days (70 hours) of power reserve. Well done Breitling, and welcome to the league of true timepiece manufactures. The chronograph is the classic two-pusher type with a start/stop button and reset button. The feel on the buttons is measured with a satisfying click. At first it might appear a bit too hard but it is done really well since that resistance will help guarantee that the buttons are pressed only when you want them to. When started, the distinctive red seconds arrow hand with the anchored B-logo counter balance, moves around the dial in micro steps and the minutes counter at 3 o'clock only moves one position at the 60 seconds marker. The hour tally at 6 o'clock counts up to 12 hours and moves slightly between the hour markers indicating 15, 30, and 45 minutes for the current hour count.
