Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph Review

Let’s get up close with a very eye-catching luxury chronograph, which will undoubtedly attract anyone who sees it on your wrist.

The watch I want to see today is the Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph, numbered V45 CC DT TT NR BR 5N. Yes, it is the reference number for many watches.

As can be seen from the side photo of this watch at the top of this article, the thickness of this watch is moderate. It has a lot of wrists, so if you are looking for something that can be used with caution, you can hide it under the cuff and look elsewhere. This is a 16mm thick statement, but don’t let it scare you. If you want to wear some avant-garde clothes on your wrist, then you will like what you read next.

This barrel-shaped wine barrel case weighs 44mm x 53mm, has a smooth PVD black matte coating, and is made of stainless steel with a polished 18kt rose gold sandwich. However, the most attractive part of this design is the front of the case.

The vertically-brushed slate-grey dial is decorated with bold rose gold numerals and flared out toward the periphery of the dial in a serif style font commonly found in replica Franck Muller watches. There is a gray scale flange with a graduated tachymeter scale. The black part around the dial has a thin white line engraved by the second hand.

The chronograph subdial and small seconds dial are raised and have a fine radial rib texture. These sub-registers use luminous rose gold hands, outlined in black and white hands, and have a rose gold frame. At 6 o’clock on the dial, you will find a round rose gold frame date window.

The hour and minute hands are bold and bold, and the partially hollow hour and minute hands are made of rose gold, with a brushed finish, and full of luminous materials. The central chronograph second hand is made of the same material and has the same surface treatment, but the red on the arrow is coated with a luminous filling.

Inside the case, you will find an exquisite movement, refined with Côtes de Genève, round texture and rhodium plating. However, the back of the watch is sturdy, so you can take a glance at the mechanical movement only if you remove the back.

The 27 jewel machine that powers this best replica watches is the self-winding Franck Muller FM-7000 movement. It is a 4Hz mechanical movement that beats at 28,800 VPH and has a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. Its functions include a chronograph (stopwatch function, with black frosted fine buttons on the black right side of the crown on both sides), date, hour hand, minute hand and second hand.

The back of the case has a vertical brushed surface, and is engraved with the Franck Muller logo and the slogan “Master of Complications”, limited edition number and reference number.

The right side of the case will display a black PVD-coated crown and rose gold end cap with a polished best Frank Muller logo embossed. The soft and comfortable lilac-gray rubber strap fixes this cute watch device on your wrist. It has a soft touch and a calfskin leather top with rose gold embellishments.

This strap has a matte black PVD-coated folding clasp, with a rose gold medallion on the buckle, with the Franck Muller logo printed on it, and the winding method is the same as the end cap of the clockwork crown.

All in all, this is a beautifully-looking, modern and tasteful watch. For those who want to own some watches, it has a healthy wrist. It is made by a watchmaker who enjoys a high reputation in the industry and will attract watchmaking connoisseurs and your ordinary laymen.

Hands-on Jacob & Co.’s Astronomer Casino

The enthusiasm for Haute Horlogerie is taken seriously.

Some people may think that the accuracy of high-end watches can never be in harmony with the uncertainty of the game of chance? Well,replica Jacob & Co. merged these two worlds into an unexpectedly complicated timepiece. One of the tasks of astronomers is to equip a fully operable miniature roulette; at the touch of a button, Astronomia Casino will show its playful side. The rest is still a display of the watchmaking feast.

Jacob & Co. has successfully created some of the craziest and most complicated watches in the past few years. Although the brand displayed multiple wild versions of its astronomy, the casino is undoubtedly the most unexpected. Like its siblings, the beast of this best replica watch stands out with an impressive vertical movement with a planetary indication that runs at a constant speed.

In addition, it is also equipped with a miniature function roulette, triggered by the 7 o’clock button. Under the four satellite arms of the watch, the roulette slot is drawn in black, red and green, while its center is made of Tanglin, while the small roulette ball is made of white ceramic.

However, the movement that breathes life into this interesting and impressive high-end toy has nothing to do with chance. The vertical caliber Jacob & Co. JCAM29A includes 395 parts and is adjusted by a three-axis tourbillon. The tourbillon cage rotates on the first axis for 60 seconds and on the second axis for 2.5 minutes. In addition, the movement will spin on its own within 10 minutes. The other three arms of the movement have time indicators. A 288-face diamond rotates in 60 seconds, and the magnesium blue lacquered globe also rotates in 60 seconds. Finally, the differential gear system allows the time display to remain upright at 12/6 o’clock regardless of its position around the dial.

This dramatic mechanical animation is presented under an impressive oversized sapphire dome, which can change the perspective from different angles. On the wrist, 47mm x 27.9mm in diameter, the rose gold case of Astronomer Casino is simply huge. But, naturally, this spectacular top-level watch does not mean being noticed…On the contrary, Jacob & Co. watches are clearly designed to be super wealthy and not afraid to show off their toys. Rapper Drake and MMA champion Connor McGregor are two famous owners of Astronomers Casino.

As with all Astronomia watches, when you turn the watch over, you can see two symmetrical up-turn keys, which are flush with the rose gold case back. One is for the winding movement and the other is for setting the time. Finally, put the watch on the crocodile leather strap and fasten it to the wrist with an 18k rose gold folding clasp.

HYT H1-Hydraulic Mechanical Watch

I recently announced a new brand called fake HYT, which will make its debut at Baselworld this year. Now, thanks to Ariel Adams, I have the opportunity to show you images of its top-of-the-line watch HYT H1 based on the revolutionary concept of “Hydraulic Mechanical Clock”.

The transparent tube circling around the dial is actually a hollow filled with liquid, indicating the number of hours in which the green luminous liquid has been used. The lower part of the dial shows two bellows, which are controlled by the movement. These are used to push the liquid and then draw it back again to show the current time. Display the minutes in a more traditional way, using a separate subdial at 12 o’clock. The small second hand is located at 9 o’clock and is designed in the style of a water turbine. The other side of the dial is at 3 o’clock, equipped with a power reserve indicator, which can balance the layout well.

According to the brand, the watch has no less than seven patents pending. Once available, customers can choose from the following three versions: titanium, DLC black coated titanium and 18k rose gold. The fake HYT H1 is a 48.8 mm wide film driven by a mechanical self-winding movement, which can be seen from the rear, and provides a 65-hour power reserve.

HYT H1 Hydro mechanical watch

HYT stands for a new concept in the watchmaking industry-HYT stands for “Hydraulic Mechanical Watchmaker”, the brand will focus on producing watches that not only contain liquids but also use liquids for functional purposes.

HYT has applied for 7 pending patents for all aspects of H1, which further highlights the new realm of HYT CEO Vincent Perriard breaking this watch.

H1 has 3 watch case styles to choose from: titanium, DLC black coated titanium and 18k rose gold. The housing will be 48mm wide and 18mm thick.

Of course, the most striking aspect of the watch is the glowing green-yellow liquid ring you see around the dial. H1 uses liquid to display the hours on a round tube around the edge of the dial.

You can see two devices that look like pistons at the bottom of the dial, which are used to push and pull the liquid to show the time on the scale.

The minutes are displayed on the medium sub-dial near the center watch, with a cool paddle wheel seconds hand on the left.

On the right, you can also see the power reserve indicator (65 hours) of the manual-winding mechanical movement.
