RADO Replica watches

Today, with the flood of social media, superficial design language is popular, only to compete for public attention and commercial traffic. A good design that is truly high-quality and can stand the test of time needs to maintain a calm mind, not be moved by short-term interests, stick to the original intention, endure loneliness, and wait for the flowers to bloom. There are many swiss watch men brands that boast good designs, but everyone knows that there are very few excellent designs between square inches, and the ones that can truly be called classic works are even rarer. Most of the time, “design” only exists as a propaganda vehicle, allowing mediocre products to sell at higher prices.

At the moment when the commercial value of “design” is prominent, in addition to the master Gerald Genta, who is known for designing Patek Philippe Nautilus and Audemas Piguet Royal Oak, rare watch designers have a higher public Reputation. No matter how many new models are released every year or how hot a certain product is sold, designers are often just ordinary employees in the brand design department that are not well-known.

In other words, watch design is relatively simple, only need to uphold tradition and a little innovation; unlike the fashion industry, the watch industry only has star products, and does not need star designers.

For the high-end watch field with relatively traditional and conservative design, it can indeed be regarded as a certain innovation and breakthrough.

Time travels back to more than 20 years ago (in my vague memory, probably in 1998), the Rado Cerex series used a similar design language (asymmetry and deformation), but it is obviously better than the above. A few crooked handles are more profound.

RADO Cyrex,

Ceramics with different shades of color represent day and night, which symbolizes the cycle of time, simple and timeless.

Cyrex is an epoch-making watch work, a representative of the earlier integration of industrial design and time art into the high-end watchmaking industry. Rado has once again demonstrated its pioneering spirit of innovation and self-breakthrough to the world. However, this product has not achieved real commercial success on a global scale, except for its acceptable sales in the Japanese market. When I joined Rado China in 2006, there was still a small amount of stock waiting to be processed in the market. At the listing event that year, Kwan Zhilin, who was wearing Cyrex watches from the spiral staircase of Jin Mao Tower, walked down the stairs, and the charming Guan Zhilin was no longer active in the public eye. The beauty is not old, but the good times can never go back.

Cyrex’s sales are not ideal, obviously related to the design. Radar ranked first in the Chinese market that year, with absolute advantages in brand awareness and sales channels. The reason for the poor sales may be that the design of this watch is too advanced, or the public still can’t appreciate this kind of watch with a strong design style.

In the case of conflicts between design styles and popular tastes, how to make trade-offs and trade-offs is a huge challenge for brand management. Because even a seemingly flat and wide road may hide many unpredictable unknowns ahead. In fact, most brand managers, just like our ordinary people, lack the strong will to walk to the end. What’s more, good design takes time to convince the audience, and you can’t create a classic in a flash.

Whether it is the Cyrex of cheap Rado or the special-shaped new models of the above brands, they all have a strong design style, and the internal motivation for design can be seen. As a daily accessory, I feel a little too hard. Just like on a lazy beach, you have to wear a solemn and formal dark evening dress. Although it reflects the high-level and elegant style, there is always a kind of out of place.

Overall ceramic series (Ceramica)

The overall ceramics can be called a work of God, and it is the best testimony of the golden age of the bursting of innovative capabilities of radar watches in the early 1990s.

The Ceramica monolithic ceramic series launched in 1990 follows the minimalist style that best Rado has always upheld, and this style has also become an important part of the design concept of Rado. The watch is characterized by its minimalist design: the case and the strap of the same width are seamlessly connected, and they are natural, just like a bracelet; they are made of the same material and shimmer with the same black light.

The overall ceramic series has also achieved great commercial success. It has been popular in the market for nearly 20 years and has influenced the product design styles of other consumer categories, such as Apple iPod and later iPhone.

Jaspe Morrison X monolithic ceramics

The cooperation between Jasper and Rado started in 2007. The first watch of the cooperation was launched the following year. The design style of ceramics is also a soft spot.

Before the official launch of r5.5, I was looking forward to the products Jasper would design for Radar, but when I first saw the product samples, I was a little disappointed. I didn’t have the bold and unimaginable design, but it was calm and ordinary in appearance. Of ordinary products. Compared with the overall ceramics, it only narrows the width of the strap, and changes the four right angles of the case to a rounded arc. But only a few weeks later, my attitude changed completely, and the r5.5 became my most frequently worn radar watch.

The Rado r5.5 series launched in 2009 was designed and created by the famous British designer Jasper Morrison. The design reveals Jasper’s typical design style: the perfect fusion of minimalist aesthetics and oriental Zen.

The name r5.5 is derived from the 5.5 mm rounded radius of the case. This watch follows the style of the early RADO watch models. The cleverly integrated ceramic case and tapered strap are reinterpreted in the r5.5 model. The minimalist style and the appearance design without losing the sense of the industrial era, the contrasting and exquisite details are reminiscent of the early monochrome models of RADO. The design of the watch combines the inherent hardness and warmth of high-tech ceramics, abandoning the sharp and cold straight lines, and using soft corners to set off the delicate and comfortable ceramics.

Jasper respects the silent design aesthetics, so that you will not always have a sense of “design” when you wear it, and everyone who has worn ceramic watches has a common experience. The biggest advantage of ceramics is not hard and wear-resistant, but Comfort that other materials can’t match. Therefore, r5.5 is a commuter watch that can be used with formal wear for work or weekend trips. It is unique, but its personality is not public, and the comfortable and calm beauty of wearing it is unforgettable. In Jasper’s other works, you can often see this highly recognizable 5.5mm radius arc corner.

Good design can stand the test of time. Similarly, good design also needs time to be recognized and accepted by the market. Like many other designs of Jasper, r5.5 is not the kind of work that makes people fall in love at first sight. The charming temperament and unique charm of “Super Normal” needs time to digest and identify. Once the love starts slowly, you will love more and more, and love for a long time. However, the radar at that time was facing the adjustment of brand strategy and the transformation to the young consumer market. As r5.5 did not bring huge performance in the short term, the Swiss management lacked enough patience and courage to continue to support this series.

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak designed by Zunda did not immediately succeed; although it is difficult to find a list at the moment, who would have thought that the Chinese general agent would clear the goods at the price of the property 10 years ago. The price increase of Patek Philippe Nautilus is only a matter of recent years, but in today’s information overload, where do all the people remember these old events? We only focus on the immediate results, and selectively ignore the process by which a good design is discovered. In recent years, countless brands have almost blatantly copied the highly recognizable “Zunda Design”, and the truly original and good designs are either rare or submerged in a sea of ​​explosions.

Whether it’s a square in a circle or a square in a circle, the integration of tough square lines into the overall appearance of the circle, or the Royal Oak plus a few screws, can make traditional and elegant watches show youthful and sporty modernity. style.

New Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT

A brand that specializes in aviation instruments has updated its GMT watches

As a brand specializing in aviation instruments and pilot watches, replica Bell & Ross needs to add GMT models to its collection to some extent, which may be the most useful complication for aircraft pilots and frequent travelers. And, not surprisingly, this complexity has been found in the BR instrument series as well as the Vintage series. Today, the Paris-based brand is updating its square travel watch with a new version of BR 03-93 GMT. Redesigned, more modern, more practical, more readable… let’s take a look at this new version.

Therefore, what you see above is the BR 03-93 GMT version that is available until now, and this model has been replaced by the watch we will find below. What we have is a 42mm x 42mm stainless steel watch with a matte black dial, orange decoration on the central hand of GMT, and a fixed 24h stainless steel scale.

However, Bell & Ross GMT watches have recently evolved to provide more functions and better readability. For example, the BR V2-93 GMT of the Vintage series is equipped with the same central GMT pointer, but also benefits from a third time zone display with a rotating bidirectional bezel. This is the content of the updated BR 03-93 GMT.

As part of the musical instrument series, you will find that the brand’s iconic square case is still 42 mm wide, which is not surprising. If there is not much change in the overall shape after the update, the case will look slightly better during execution. The top of the case is round brushed, and 4 functional screws are aligned and polished. The side of the case has a large polished bevel to increase power. The central case is drawn vertically. The new BR 03-93 GMT has the same proportions as the previous iteration and the same specifications. It has a 100m water resistance, a strong steel back and a screw-in crown. swiss watches prices

As you might have guessed, the most important difference in this update is the presence of a two-way rotating bezel. The third time zone can be displayed. It is made of stainless steel with 24 clicks. The insert is anodized aluminum with red and black tones. Therefore, this means that in addition to the central hand showing the second time zone, the bezel can also read the third time zone. Rotating clockwise will decrease the hours, rotating counterclockwise will increase the hours.

The dial has also been refreshed. It now has a sun frosted pattern. Arabic numerals are applied and brushed vertically, and the hour markers are now filled with Super-LumiNova. The classic B&R (B&R) luminous hands are still used for hours (local time) and minutes, and the extra hour hand (local time) is now painted red to match the bezel. The date is displayed in a circular tint window at 4h30.

In the case of this updated Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT, there is no change, because it is still powered by the famous and robust BR-CAL.303 (based on Sellita SW-330). This automatic movement has a frequency of 4Hz and a power reserve of 42h, and is often referred to as a table GMT because the crown independently sets the GMT hands in units of one hour, rather than the local hour hand (as in Rolex GMT).

Bell&Ross BR 03-93 GMT is equipped with a matte black calfskin belt and a steel pin buckle. It also includes an extra extra tough black synthetic fiber strap.

Replica Jacob & Co. ASTRONOMIA CLARITY WHITE GOLD watch AT120.30.AD.SD.A

The Jacobs Company’s astronomical clarity tour. The palm of the hand with an impressive tour At WCL, we are fortunate to regularly review such impressive timepieces as the Jacob & Co. Astronomia series. Jacob & Co. was founded by Uzbek immigrant Jacob Jacobo and is known for selling high-priced jewelry, watches and diamonds to celebrities and hip-hop and rap artists. As his company flourished in the 1990s, Arabo became the nickname of “Jacob the Jeweler” (first appeared in several rap songs by Jay-Z and other hip-hop recording artists Middle), until 2005, he opened his own boutique on 57th Street, right next to the old Audemars Piguet boutique-AP boutique is now across the street, just a few steps away from Park Avenue.

However, with the booming business and after becoming a celebrity jeweler, “Jacob the Jeweler” (Jacob the Jeweler) was in a difficult situation in 2006. He was arrested for money laundering and IRS issues and was arrested in 2008. jail. He was released in 2010 after a one-year sentence. As expected, the cruel watches with five time zones he once sold are now long gone, and Mr. Arabi is making a comeback with an impressive “Haute Horlogerie” timepiece. From the perspective of clocks and watches, its flickering effect is smaller, but there are many amazing factors. The Astronomia series is a good example, and the Astronomia Clarity tourbillon watch is the Jacob & Co. watches we reviewed for the first time on WCL.

Astronomia Clarity Tourbillon is a truly unique breakthrough timepiece, which combines the highest level of Swiss timepiece craftsmanship and watch decoration art to enhance the art of watchmaking and create a watch that is a visual representation of the celestial poetry. Every element is consistent, visible movement, all of which are carried out under the control of the oscillator of the three-axis tourbillon heart, with hour and minute track display.

Things you need to know
No matter which way you watch, the clarity of Jacob & Co. astronomy is not a traditional watch. This timepiece is equipped with an 18K white gold case, which looks more like a cage, with six sapphire crystals mounted on the top, bottom, strap and lugs. The diameter is 50 mm and the thickness is 25 mm (for reference, the thickness of the Royal Oak Offshore is 15 mm). Due to the transparency of its structure, the chronometer watch does not look so large, so the clarity of astronomy has not reached the required level. Some sizes.

However, the best replica watches for men is large but not bulky. Now, for those who want to know whether this watch is waterproof, the answer is yes. According to the ISO 2281 standard, the astronomical resolution is 30 meters.

In terms of time display, the watch has a patented differential gear system, and the hours and minutes are indicated by a rotating dial with Roman numerals and blue hands. The dial rotates around the dial every 20 minutes.

Four different elements are concentrated in the center through a patented differential gear system, an hour and minute dial, faceted spherical diamonds, magnesite globe and gravity tourbillon cage can all be found. In the center, a globe engraved with longitude and latitude lines shows the limitations of the part, in this case, the clarity of astronomy is limited to 9 pieces.

The blue and silver magnesium paint globes rotate every 60 seconds on two axes.

The total weight of the faceted spherical diamond is one carat and it has 288 sides. This is an exclusive patented Jacob & Co. diamond cut. Just like a globe, this diamond rotates on two axes every 60 seconds.

But what makes Jacob & Co.’s astronomical clarity tourbillon even more special is that the gravity tourbillon cage rotates on three axes. The first axis rotates every sixty seconds, the second axis rotates every five minutes, and the third axis rotates every 20 minutes. In addition, the shape of the tourbillon cage bears the iconic “J&Co”. Jacob & Co. logo

This watch is equipped with a gorgeous large square scale alligator leather strap and 18K white gold double folding unfolding clasp.

As if the front is not impressive enough, turning Astronomia Clarity around, you can find the complicated and clever winding and time setting mechanism, so that the watch has no crown in the traditional position. The movement is powered by the internal Jacob & Co. manual winding movement JCAM10. The back cover of the movement is equipped with two flat crowns, so the wearer can wind the watch through the left crown and pass the watch. The crown on the crown sets the time. correct. The movement has a “premium watch” finish on the small main board and bridge, and has a flat balance spring. The power reserve when fully wound is 60 hours.

On the wrist, the wearing size of the Jacob & Co. Astronomy Clear Tourbillon is slightly smaller than its actual size, but the impression on the wrist is the most impressive. This is a timepiece, you need to watch it in person to fully appreciate the brilliance and micro-movement watch feat it represents.

What is so special about the Bremont Supersonic? Learn more about the main functions of the watch.

Only iconic aircraft like Concorde are suitable as inspiration for equally eye-catching timepieces such as the replica Bremont Supersonic. This award-winning luxury British watch brand introduced its eighth historical limited edition timepiece with its superb watch design to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Concorde and celebrate its position in aviation history.

For those unfamiliar with the Bremont brand, the co-founders Nick and Giles English started manufacturing mechanical watches in Henley-on-Thames in 2002, only one year after the Concorde officially bid farewell to flying in 2003.

The brothers invested in a new British parts manufacturing plant in 2014, which allowed them to produce their own watch cases and movement components. From here, Bremont copy was able to rank among the world’s top astronomical watch manufacturers, thus giving birth to innovative luxury watches such as Supersonic models.

What is the history behind the Concorde?

The iconic Concorde undoubtedly stands out in the field of civil aviation with its unique silhouette and the roar of four Rolls-Royce Olympus engines. When she flew overhead, she was immediately recognized.

Her characteristic “Slender Delta” wing has a back curved line, which is made of a solid piece of aluminum. The wing of a traditional subsonic aircraft will have more than 50 movable equipment, while Concorde will not. On the contrary, there are 6 trailing edge “elevons” on the plane, which reduces drag and increases strength. Another distinguishing feature of her is her aerodynamics, with a 24-foot-long needle-like nose that can “descent” to one of two positions, thereby improving the pilot’s vision of the runway and taxiway.

Supersonic flight means that the Concorde is under extreme thermodynamic pressure, causing the fuselage to heat up and stretch to 11 inches. As a result of this huge expansion, special highly reflective paints have been developed and taken into account when laying cabin carpets.

At a supersonic speed of Mach 2 (Mach 1 is the speed of an aircraft equal to the speed of sound) faster than a rifle bullet, more than 2.5 million British Airways passengers fly at twice the speed of sound. Concorde is the longest-serving supersonic civil aircraft in the world. While breaking records, it also demonstrated the brilliance of beauty and engineering.

How does Bremont’s supersonic speed show consonance?
The establishment of the Bremont brand coincided with the principles of aviation and military, British engineering and adventure. The design and visionary production of the groundbreaking Concorde adopted all key aspects.

Replica BREMONT SUPERSONIC STAINLESS STEEL watch price

Bremont Supersonic will release three versions:

Variation 1:
Supersonic stainless steel

Variation 2:
Supersonic rose gold

Variation 3:
Supersonic Platinum

The influence of Concorde can be found in all three variants of this model, and many features of the watch pay tribute to the design elements and visionary aspects of this breakthrough aircraft.

First of all, Chaoyang’s white metal dial represents a highly reflective paint developed specifically for innovative aircraft. Supplemented by the second top luxury replica watches dial, at 6 o’clock, you can find the subtle pattern of the iconic contour of the Concorde. Finally, the blue stainless steel hands on the supersonic stainless steel and the blue Connolly leather strap, similar to the blue of British Airways found on the famous uniform of Concorde.

In a special partnership with British Airways (British Airways), Bremont got talented aluminum from Concorde and incorporated it into the unique “Bremont Supersonic” timepiece. This metal is taken from the third Concorde and added to the British Airways fleet G-BOAB Concorde, which is known as Alpha Bravo.

This excellent aircraft was registered in 1974, and by 1984, she had completed the distance record for a passenger plane, flying 4,565 miles from Washington to Nice, which was outstanding at the time. Aluminum from Alpha Bravo was used to make a special metal ring surrounding the improved movement.

This unique ring is machined and has the main characteristics of a breakthrough aircraft:

These details truly respect the original Concorde and lock the memory of the famous Alpha Bravo in the new complex craftsmanship. Incorporating this history into these watches is an incredibly poignant feature of this series, and perhaps the most beautiful way to connect Bremont Supersonic and Concorde.

What made the supersonic revolution happen in Bremont?

Concorde is an innovation in the aviation industry, and the Bremen supersonic represents a new initiative in the field of Bremen movement manufacturing. Supersonic has Bremont’s first manual pneumatic function. It uses a BE-11M movement with a rated frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour.

Equally impressive is the 8-day power reserve, and the indicator is located at the 12 o’clock position on the dial for excellent visualization.

In addition, the movement also incorporates the prestigious Concorde silhouette to remind people of the inspiration behind this excellent timepiece. The case will be made of BremontTrip-Tick® structure with a diameter of 43mm.

The limited edition Bremont Supersonic is packed in a special packaging box inspired by Concorde. Part of the proceeds of these unique timepieces are donated to the Aviation Alliance Foundation.

The organization works with British Airways to support its “Inspire” employment program, which enables young people to learn how to fly. This unique box is a sleek and majestic way of safe supersonic storage and a visual reminder of Bremen’s history.
