The Daytona’s case measures 40 mm in diameter and is made in Rolex’s distinctive Oyster style and has a water-resistance of 100 meters (330 feet). Its water resistance is helped by the use of a winding crown fitted with Rolex’s patented Triplock water-resistance system which screws down securely into the case. The fluted caseback is also (hermetically) screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Rolex watchmakers and the chronopushers also screw down too. A crown guard has been integrated into the case middle which has been machined entirely from a solid block of 950 platinum and has a polished finish and is complimented by a bracelet also in platinum.
One of the Daytona’s signature design elements is the tachymeter bezel which adds to its auto racing persona, used in conjunction with the chronograph it measures average speeds of up to 400 miles(or kilometers) per hour. The tachymeter has engraved numerals and graduations coated with a thin layer of platinum via a PVD, and Rolex’s proprietary Cerachrom material is an extra-hard, corrosion resistant ceramic – Cerachrom is a contraction of the words Ceramic and Chrome.
The “Ice blue ” dial is a colour reserved exclusively for platinum models in particular the Day-Date II. Contrasting the ice blue of the dial the outer scales on the chronograph subdials are made of chestnut brown lacquer which compliment the bezel, they have 18k white gold borders. White gold has also been used for the applied hour markers and hands which have a coating of Chromalight, a luminescent substance with a blue glow that Rolex claims lasts longer than eight hours.
Extremely well-known in the 1940s, the calendar window featuring a date display indicated by a red half-moon-shaped hand as well as a twin day/month apertures makes the black dials Breitling Navitimer 1884 copy watches retro and unique.
For the cheap replica watches, the technical black dial has a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock, which is distinguished by a 24-hour “military time” display that helps the users to distinguish between day and night easily.
Equipped with the classic 1952 aviation slide rule, the silver hands fake Breitling watches are powered by high-performance Breitling 21 self-winding movements. Completed by black rubber straps matching the color of dial or steel bracelets echoing the material of the case, these timepieces are powerful tools at any place.
All in all, I am really impressed and satisfied with this Replica Breitling Navitimer 01. Of all the replica Breitling watches, I could not have selected a better model. This is a noticeable watch having a “bling” look, the complementary black and silvery white dial provides the watch with the feel of a unique time machine. For your Breitling replicas for sale buying guide, in case you desire a classic pilot watch having real strong history, the Replica Breitling Navitimer 01 watch has to feature at the top of your list. You are actually buying a superb watch with real pedigree and a brand with unquestionable dedication and passion to aviation.
The 2018 Couture luxury-watch-and-jewelry show kicked off in Las Vegas today, and WatchTime is on the scene to cover highlights from the array of timepieces being shown there, some being seen in the U.S.A. for the very first time after their launches at Baselworld or SIHH, others all-new releases rolled out since the two Swiss watch fairs. One of the former is the new Longines USA Exclusive HydroConquest, which we glimpsed unofficially in Basel but can now offer a full reveal on as the models make their official debut.
The collection, an extension of Longines’ popular HydroConquest series of sporty dive watches, consists of three editions, all sold exclusively in the United States and limited to 1,000 pieces, which feature subtle American-inspired detailing. The color options range from traditional stainless steel to stainless steel with a black or gray PVD coating. The dials come in sunray-finished black, gray, or bright blue, with red indexes, a small “USA” script in the bottom right corner, and a luminous 50 in the upper left corner of the bezel in honor of the 50 states of America.
For divers, the important information is that the watch boasts a 300-meter water resistance, a ceramic unidirectional bezel, anti-reflective coating on the crystal and the choice between a NATO strap or a stainless steel bracelet with the integrated divers’ extension. The Super-LumiNova-coated hands and hour markers contrast starkly with the dials; the date appears in a window at 3 o’clock.
Where the GMT-Master on the right (ref.16758) shows the old style case, in gold, and the brown dial with nipple hour markers, you almost think the new Rolex GMT-Master II Everose gold is much bigger. The lugs are beefier, but the diameter is exactly the same at 40mm. The brown color is different from the vintage GMT-Master, and has more a cappuccino color on the new reference 126715CHNR. The bezel with its two-colour brown and black Cerachrom insert in ceramic, engraved numerals and graduations, works like a charm. The current mechanism feels much nicer and better engineered than the bezels from the old days. The color scheme of the new Rolex GMT-Master II Everose is very nice, but miles away from the former brown dialed (and bezel) GMT-Master model.
The image below shows the difference in thickness as well as a good demonstration of how different the gold tones are. The new Rolex GMT-Master II Everose has, of course, a Triplock crown to ensure water resistance (up to 10ATM).
My initial enthusiasm was not so big for this model, since it did not have the brown dial and was not made of yellow gold. That said, this disappeared rapidly when I had the chance to try it myself. It’s a well balanced watch, and the use of the brown and black on the bezel matches perfectly with the Everose gold case and bracelet. The gold details also come back in the dial, in the writing of ‘GMT-Master II’ as well as in the indices and hands. Did you also notice the little crown between Swiss and Made? The new <strong>Rolex GMT-Master II Pepsi with Jubilee also has this feature.
I’m not going to keep the mystery going here, but after I made my decision I talked to one of the consummate watch professionals whom I entrust for purchases, George Mayer over at Govberg Jewelers. Shortly after that I had my Explorer II on the wrist and I couldn’t be happier. However, the decision was tougher than I had imagined and, in an ideal world, I would have gotten both the Explorer II and the Submariner. Here, I’m going to attempt to objectively compare the two watches to help make this decision a little easier for anyone out there struggling with the same choice.
Fortunately, the Submariner and Explorer II are solid offerings that retain value but are reasonably easy to acquire. However, Rolex is constricting inventory more and more and an inevitable price increase down the road makes this a good time to pull the trigger on one of these pieces if you’ve seriously been considering it.
The first Rolex Submariner ref. 6204 watch arrived in 1953 and has gone on to become the most iconic dive watch in modern history, and one of the most iconic and ubiquitous luxury sports watches out there, period. Originally measuring 37mm wide, the Submariner was waterproof to 100 meters due to its Oyster case though in subsequent years this was improved to 200 meters (1,000 feet) of water resistance. Of course, when Sean Connery wore the Submariner as James Bond in 1962’s Dr. No, the watch was chiseled into the imagination of nearly every young man (and woman) who saw a 007 film through the years.
The Submariner has been an icon for decades, and the two most common models we see are the reference 16610 with aluminum bezel which was introduced back in 1989 and was in production until 2010. In 2010 we saw the introduction of the Submariner we are discussing here in the ref. 114060 as well as the date model ref. 116610. Updates that were made to the newer versions were: the most obvious inclusion of the Cerachrom (that’s Rolex for ceramic) bezel; superior Chromalight lume.
It is true that Rolex does have their own particular alloy blends made for them all the time. It is also true that until recently, really no other watch brand used 904L stainless steel. 904L is harder to machine, polishes up better, and has some corrosion resistance properties that make for a good diving watch.
The Ring Lock System case is part of the reason it can withstand such massive pressures. The sapphire crystal alone is 5.5mm thick and the caseback is produced from grade five titanium. For 2018 Rolex will no longer really be using the “904L steel” designation to refer to the steel they use. They are still using 904L steel for their watches, but they just won’t call it that. Rolex has introduced “Oystersteel” as the preferred term, which makes their special 904L alloy blend unique to them.
Speaking of text, Rolex seemed to want the new for 2018 reference 126660 to look similar to the outgoing 116660, so it kept one of the original Deepsea’s most controversial features. That is a silver rehaut ring around the dial which contains two phrases being “Original Gas Escape Valve” (referring to the automatic helium release valve) and “Ring Lock System,” which refers to how the case is constructed to ensure such high levels of water resistance. The silver ring itself is actually part of the Ring Lock and is a “high-performance nitrogen-alloyed stainless steel ring.” Honestly, when you wear the watch you quickly forget that it is there, but in truth Rolex didn’t need to remind the wearer at each glance of the dial that the timepiece contains these parts/systems. I’m usually not one to complain about too much text, but I am not sure the text on the Ring Lock needed to be there. Oh well, it isn’t that big of a deal in an otherwise fantastic package.
The vast majority of people who wear a Deepsea will not take it underwater – let alone to almost 13,000 feet. The Rolex Deepsea has 3,900m of water resistance thanks to an actual submarine-like case construction. Rolex has made watches that can go deeper – but it barely matters unless you find yourself in a miniature, wearable submariner pissing contest. The reason people tend to wear a Rolex Deepsea (other than the fact that it is a really cool machine) is the size. At 44mm wide and almost double the thickness of the Submariner, the Deepsea is a beast on the wrist – but one that fans love.
The traditional black dial for the 126660 Deepsea is not identical to the D-Blue (blue to black gradient dial) in terms of text. The primary difference (in addition to colors) is the placement and size of “Deepsea.” On the D-Blue 126660 the word is placed right above “Sea-Dweller” under where the hands connect. On the the black dial, “Deepsea” is smaller and placed just over where the hands connect under “Oyster Perpetual Date.” I happen to prefer the black dial myself, as part of that is the placement of the text. Yes, we aren’t even talking about the functionality, construction, or comfort of the watch, but rather, where a small term is placed on the dial. Welcome to being a watch nerd.
If you also fit that category, then look no further than the Rolex Milgauss, and especially the unique anniversary edition reference 116400GV (“glass verte”) with the green sapphire glass. It is a watch with a unique history that stands out from an all too common Rolex lineup and that was designed for scientists… Let’s explore why that is.
While I will not give you a full history of the Rolex Milgauss, I want to brush on the important highlights. The Rolex web site posts do a thorough job of documenting the history, in particular this post is one of the better ones I have found on its history.
In a nutshell, the Rolex Milgauss was introduced in the late 50’s when electricity, electronics, aeronautics, and nuclear engineering was bringing about what we now call the technology and information revolution. As a species, we had just discovered the power of the atom, we were finally in a position to leave mother earth (albeit for short periods of time), and the amount of innovations around transmitting, storing, and transforming information, created a series of revolutions that would forever change mankind.
As a consequence of this flood of innovation, scientists (and generally everyone) were increasingly being exposed to magnetic fields. Not only from the instruments used but also from everyday appliances such as TV sets, radios, and the many new electrified appliances that were making their way into households. You don’t need to know Maxwell’s equations to know that an electrical current and a magnetic field are two sides of the same “coin” and that one can easily be converted into the other.
The 105.002 needs to be mentioned as well. There is actually no real difference between the last variation CK2998(-62) and the 105.002 except for the reference number.Omega changed the reference number syntax, which means getting rid of the CK identifier and 4 digit numbers. The 105.002 was actually made in a very small period of time (1962), before its successor was introduced (105.003). This makes the 105.002 perhaps even more collectible than some of the CK2998 models.
Often considered to be the second best thing when it comes to vintage Speedmasters, but a small confession has to be made here. I love this version actually a bit better than its predecessor. This particular reference number already looks a bit like the ‘Moonwatch’ with its black bezel and Alpha hands. Where the first Speedmaster had a bit of a military look in my opinion, this watch is a more subtle sports chronograph.There are quite a bit of variations in the CK2998, where the different styles of hands are the most important identifier. One of the most sought-after CK2998 models is the one with the ‘lollipop’ chronograph second hand.
Oddly enough, I’ve been offered 105.002 for quite a bit less money than a CK2998. Expect to pay approximately 20.000 – 25.000 Euro for a nice Speedmaster CK2998. When there is a box or/and papers as well, the price will be influenced. Don’t get yourself trapped in the tropical dial (discoloured dials, turned to a brownish color). Although some might think it gives the watches a nice cool look, do not pay too much extra for this ‘feature’. Versions that do add value are the so-called FAP models.

The Rolex air-King is renowned for its ability to keep perfect timing in different time zones which was the main reason for its popularity at the time it was introduced to the public in the 1940s. This particular line of Air watches were in fact created to honor the brave pilots who took part in the Battle of Britain during World War II, but soon caught up with the imagination of everyone who wanted to look heroic and sophisticated. Although the rest of the models in the line of Air watches were discontinued in the 60s, the Air-King went from strength to strength and today there are many versions of this popular wristwatch in the market.

One of the big announcements at this year’s Baselworld watch fair was the alliance forged between two powerhouse tool watch brands: Tudor (part of the Rolex enterprise) and the formerly independent Breitling, now owned by private equity house CVC Capital Partners.
Under this arrangement, each will supply the other with items missing from their stock list. Thus, Tudor gains access to the Grenchen brand’s BR01 in-house chronograph, while Breitling receives Tudor’s MT5612 automatic movement, now dubbed the B20, which has been put to use in the new Superocean Heritage II series, celebrating 60 years since the launch of its first “dive watch”. Available in 42mm or 46mm automatic and 46mm chronograph versions, all benefit from a ceramic ring adorning the steel bezel, to minimise wear, as well as subtly updated hands and markers. In addition, the COSC-certified B20 movement now delivers 70 hours of power reserve.
All models feature blue, black or bronze finishes and a choice of strap material: crocodile, rubber and a new rubber-leather composite. Alternatively, a mesh strap can be fitted, in line with the 1957 original.
