Raymond Weil Maestro Moonphase

Raymond Weil Maestro Moon Phase 300

There has always been something unique and charming about the moon. Whether it is the fact that it cannot be touched or the fact that it simply casts lovely light during the night surrounded by mystery, the moon has been a fascination of most men. The Raymond Weil Maestro Moonphase puts the emphasis on the moon that shows the phase according to the date you select. This animated feature gives the name of the watch and the uniqueness in the design.

Raymond Weil Maestro Moon Phase

The beautiful lunar calendar shows the cycles of the lunar phase that can be observed from Earth on the illuminated side of the Moon. This indicator blends perfectly into the elegant and unique design of the watch at 10:30. Royal blue color elements on the black dial display a style filled with elegance as well as the Roman numerals that show traditional class.

One of the reasons why this watch is so desired and so popular among other high end watches is the fact that it is hand assembled but also due to the craftsmanship behind it that has been shown by the company for years. The watch also has a power reserve of 38 hours with a longer period of time than one rotation of the earth on its own axis. The dial has a date indicator at 6 o’clock with anti-reflective sapphire crystal protection for a better view in the most extreme light conditions. Also, a great touch on the overall design is given by the round polished steel case that measures a perfect 39.5mm and 10.45 mm in thickness, just perfect for the average wrist. The fluted crown with the RW monogram is just one of the small elements on the watch that make it so precious. The black central zone on the dial is beautiful decorated in “clou de Paris” and the index is shown in relief with classical hands for minutes, seconds and hours.

A mysterious symbol of elegance, the watch is perfect for a man who has everything and just needs something that would already complete their perfect elegant attire. The Raymond Weil Maestro Moonphase is the watch that can be given to a mature man that can wear it in style.

Perrelet Regulator Retrograde

by

A3007-1.tif

Whether watches are just mere accessories that can show off your status or they still pose an importance in a society full of gadgets is up to you to decide; however, the Perrelet Regulator Retrograde seems to be a combination of both, making an amazing contrast with other high end watches that can be found nowadays.

The name of the company comes from Abraham Louis Perrelet who was a renowned Swiss horologist that invented the self-winding mechanism in 1770 for pocket watches. So the watches made by the company are actually using a modified version of the original movement, which is now called automatic. The version uses a spinning rotor visible through the dial side of the watch.

A3007-1.tif

The Perrelet Regulator Retrograde is a watch that has achieved a lot of praise for the way it looks and the technology used behind it. It seems that the watch uses a mix of complications that is unique in the high end watch world. It features a retrograde hour display, with regulator style separation between the hour, minutes and seconds but also a periphery style date display. Actually these turbine watches that feature a visible spinning rotor are the trademark of Perrelet watches and the reason why people choose them. This makes for an interesting style great for grabbing people’s attention to this superb watch. This particular model is in gold and has a case that measures 42 mm; there’s also a cheaper version in steel and a more casual-sporty version that comes in titanium and it’s a bit larger, measuring 43.5mm. This model doesn’t only have gold on the case, but also on the dial and comes with a pretty high price of over 20 000 dollars.

The watch is water resistant for up to 50 meters, features the P-221 movement and has a sapphire crystal for the back and front of the case.  The bracelet is an alligator leather model that is perfect for elegant attire.

Whether you want a watch that has modern mechanism or you want one that looks elegant enough but not too old, you can have them both combined in this superb watch.

Montblanc’s Régulateur Nautique

by

Montblanc Regulateur Nautique 300

If you are looking for precise movement and a high end company that produces quality timepieces, Montblanc is the company that would probably suit your needs. One of their most famous watches is the Montblanc’s Regulateur.

A precise movement watch has always been created for more purposes than just reading time; actually, the first watches and the first modern technologies when it came to time telling were created with specific purposes in mind for professionals. For example, captains, aviators and other people who needed accurate measuring were the first clients that wore watches with famous amazingly accurate mechanisms. Throughout time, these mechanisms were available for the general population and there were even watches created as tribute to those professional adventurers. The Montblanc watch is known to have paid tribute to the early navigational timepieces by creating the watch known as the Régulateur Nautique. The watch was the famous piece of the Villeret 1858 collection with only 8 exclusively limited sets produced.

Montblanc Regulateur Nautique

When you first take a look at this watch you will notice how the elements give interesting insights of various key points in the history of navigation. The regulator dial comes with a central minute hand and a separate hours sub dial at 12 o’clock; it also has a different display of seconds that has been considered to be a tribute to the regulator pendulum clocks that were used in harbormasters’ offices in ports. The dial comes with eight indicators showing two different time zones: home and local time. It also displays day and night and comes with a chronograph a 30 minute counter, small seconds and a combined power reserve and winding zone display. The latter are a homage the depths and shallows in the sea. Also, the watch comes with a skeletonized hour hand inside a small hour circle at 12 o’clock underneath another hour indicates the vessel’s home time.

The watch has a 43 mm case that comes with the usual non-reflective sapphire window on front and back. There are two models available, one in rose gold and the other, presented here, with white gold and a marine theme with leather strap.
