Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder

by

The Carrera Mikrogirder is one of the most outstanding TAG Heuer watches ever. It is a timepiece that reinvents the watch movement.  Not only that it has a very modern and creative design, but it is also faster, simpler and more efficient than you could possibly imagine. The Mikrogirder is invulnerable to gravity, reduces cyclic errors and is precise to an amazing 5/10,000th of a second.

This extremely accurate timepiece changes everything you knew about modern watches. It is considered a concept watch and it was launched at the BaselWorld Show, in March 2012. The most impressive part of the design can be found at the inside where there is a complex and unique Chronograph movement that vibrates at 7.2 million beats per hour. Unlike other TAG Heuer chronograph, this feature is what makes the Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder precise to of 5/ 10,000th of a second.

Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder watch

Connoisseurs have surely noticed that at least once a year Tag Heuer launches a new super chronograph that is determined to defy the laws of physics and horology. Tag Heuer has managed to touch the limits of technology by featuring a high frequency chronograph that operates at 1000 hertz. The only problem is that it has just 4 minutes of power reserve. There is no traditional mechanism watch that is superior to the Mikrogirder. Only electronic watches can be more precise than this. Experts agree, this is the highest possible precision when it comes to automatic movement watches.

As with all good things in life, the Tag Heuer Mikrogirder is a limited edition watch. Only 11 pieces of this extraordinary timepiece were made and sold.   It is clearly an interesting and fascinating product for those who are passionate by extremely precise time devices. As far as prices go, the Tag Heuer is an incredibly expensive watch. How much does it cost? Well, the retail price is kept secret. Its predecessor was selling for $65,000 and the newest version of the Mikrogirder has been auctioned for over $100,000 so you can only imagine the staggering price it has.

This timepiece is an oversized sports looking watch with a bullhead style layout. The buttons and winding crown are located on top and the case is made entirely from stainless steel. Indeed, when you wear it, it looks a little bit big on the wrist, but it is a fun looking kind of big that feels very cool and manly. Even though the dial does not appear to be that complicated, you need to be a watch expert to read it. If you can afford this watch and want to ever use it then you must watch its description video to fully understand how it works.

What do you think Tag Heuer did to improve the measurements of the intensely quick speed? It replaced the traditional balance spring escapement system with an innovative system that is very similar to a violin. The advantage of strings is that these move as certain frequencies. Without a doubt, Tag Heuer has gone full lengths to make sure it creates a completely new mechanism that has at its core modern technologies and historical performances.

Comments Off on Breitling Navitimer 1884

Breitling Navitimer 1884

by

black watch

Wrist watches have a rich history. Originally, people told time by looking at pocket watches. However, pilots found it really troublesome to use pocket watches while flying, and so the mechanism for the wrist watch developed. Since then, many famous watchmakers have made their mark on this world with their intricate and beautiful watches. Breitling is one such watchmaker, and their Navitimer 1884 is no ordinary watch.

The Breitling Navitimer 1884 is a tribute to the origin of the company, founded in 1884. The watch is a limited edition and a favorite among many pilots. This is because the Navitimer 1884 has a lot more features than any ordinary watch.

The watch is powered by a chronometer by the name of the Breitling Caliber 21, which has been certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). The watch itself is made of stainless steel and is 46mm in diameter. The strap is also available in three choices – leather, crocodile leather, or a black rubber strap.

So, what makes the Navitimer 1884 so special? The watch not only tells the time, but it also has a minute and hour-tracking subdials. Another great feature of the Navitimer 1884 is its calendar system known as Datora. The calendar feature tells you the date and the month as well. In addition to the calendar, the Navitimer also has a day and night feature.

However, that’s not the Navitimer’s main attraction. The primary reason for its popularity is the slide rule function. The slide rule function means that the watch has two logarithmic scales, and you can move the outer one to perform basic mathematical functions. The Navitimer’s slide rule function can allow a person to carry out complicated distance, rate, and mathematical functions which is why it was a favorite among pilots. The watch also has a sun compass to determine whether you’re North or South.

In terms of wear, the Navitimer 1884 is an ease to wear. At a 46mm width and a 15.2mm height, it’s a comfortable size to carry around all day. The watch is a little larger than conventional watches, due to its features, so it may not slide easily under sleeves. However, we don’t really see that as a problem. A watch this beautiful doesn’t deserve to be hidden under sleeves. The watch runs at optimal performance in weathers ranging from 0°C and 50°C.

The Navitimer 1884 isn’t a very difficult watch to maintain. It is prone to wear and tear, as all watches are, but with proper maintenance, it can last you a very long time. The Navitimer is protected by a water-resistant glass. However, prolonged exposure to perspiration, salt water, chlorine, or perfume can cause it to deteriorate. Thus, avoid wearing your watch for any aquatic activities. It will also be helpful to get a water-resistance check done every once in a while, by a Breitling authorized maintenance center. Also, avoid knocking the watch on hard objects and keep it away from any solvents or magnetic fields.

Ulysse Nardin Limited Edition Hourstriker Pin-Up

by

What is the first thing that you see when you take a look at the Ulysses Nardin Limited Edition Hourstriker PinUp? The beautiful burlesque dancer whose body is covered by the peacocks and the gold and sapphires encrusted dial. The design makes the watch stand out but not in a trashy way. It’s not too flashy or sparkly but it does draw the attention to it. What makes it special though besides the design? Here are some interesting facts about it:

The case and the strap both go together perfectly. The case itself is made up of 18 carat rose gold and it is complimented by the black leather strap. The leather strap has the usual design resembling a tire but together with the rose gold case, it creates a beautiful elegant overall design that can be worn with any kind of outfit and still stand out without looking out of place.

Another interesting detail present on the case is the Ulysse Nardin logo at the top of the case. Down at the bottom of it the words “Swiss Made” are also written in gold. This signifies that the watch is high quality since, as we all know, the Swiss have quite the reputation when it comes to designing watches.

One of the key elements of the new Ulysse Nardin Limited Edition Hourstriker PinUp is the burlesque dancer whose body is covered by the peacock. The most unique function of this watch is that when the clock strikes a certain hour, the peacock’s feathers move away, revealing the dancer’s naked body. It is an interesting an edition to an otherwise unique and elegant watch. Not many companies would go as far as drawing a dancer’s naked body in the case of the watch, but it is certainly a nice addition that will keep the buyers on their toes.

The hourstrike function basically takes place whenever the owner of the watch engages the pusher or every hour and half hour. The figurine of the burlesque dancer is handpainted, a process that is painstakingly long. It is estimated that it took over 80 hours to complete, thus showing the dedication of the watchmakers.

The Ulysse Nardin Limited Edition Hourstriker PinUp is unique not just thanks to the burlesque dancer and the hourstriker function, but also because only 28 of these wonderful watches will be made and sold. So if you want one hurry up!

Comments Off on Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P

Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P

by

In order to properly describe the new Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P, you need to know what a “Spring Drive” is first. A “Spring Drive” is defined as a mechanism that was first created by Seiko Epson, a Japanese engineer, whose purpose is to develop a hand that tracks the sweeping seconds that passed, as opposed to the traditional hand that only tracks minutes. The Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P perfectly embodies this technology, which is what makes it stand out on the market, while also bringing some new elements to the table that make this watch unique.

The Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P is a hybrid model between a quartz watch and a mechanical one. Here is the difference between the two:

  • A quartz watch is reliable, requires very little to no maintenance and it is powered by a battery. It is the most common type of watch on the market but for watch enthusiasts and collectors, it is not that sought-after because it has few moving pieces. It is a simple mechanism that has been around for some time and requires little craftsmanship, only a basic understanding of the mechanism.
  • A mechanical watch is a more complex version of a quartz watch that involves a lot of precision, craftsmanship and is a lot more popular among watch connoisseurs. It involves a lot of moving parts and it is a wonder to watch.

The Piaget Emperador Coussin XL 700P is a hybrid between the two because it makes use of both systems. A typical watch that comes with a Spring Drive movement has 8 revolutions per second and in the case of a 700P version, we are talking about a 5.33 revolutions per second. It has no battery, but it is very accurate in telling the time, so the disadvantage of the battery is eliminated from the start.

Seiko, the Japanese company that first developed the concept of a Spring Drive movement was the first one to do so and therefore they define the movement. Piaget’s model used the same basic concept, but added small changes to make this model into a luxury watch rather than a typical watch that is designed for everyday use.

In short, it is, as mentioned above, a luxurious hybrid between a quartz watch and a mechanical watch, bringing the advantages of both worlds into one watch.

Comments Off on Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe

Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe

by

The Jaeger LeCoultre Duemetre Chronographe is an ingenious machinery that immediately stands out when you put it around your wrist. The beautiful design with the grey and golden rose color combination goes together with the multiple dials and the belt. You can’t miss it. Priced at a little over $40,000, this is a perfect piece of engineering produced by Jaeger that you don’t want to miss in your collection.

When you first look at the Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe, without a doubt the design is the most striking thing. The color combination between rose gold for the edge of the dial and the deep grey of the inside of the dial is what makes it look so elegant and chic. Grey is usually regarded as a man’s color and combined with the warmer rose gold, it creates a warm image that can be worn with any outfit.

Another very important thing about the Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe is the way in which the dial is constructed. Obviously the start is a small tourbillon with its own name, located on the right of the dial and which dictates how the other small dials are moving. It is called the Sphérotourbillon and it contains a spherical hairspring that helps it make one full rotation in 30 seconds and another tilted rotation at 20 degrees in half that, so in 15 seconds.

The entire watch is made up of over 400 pieces and they all move together in perfect precision so watching how the watch works is beautiful. There are two main dials here: the one in the left shows the time like a regular watch does and the one in the left is a chronograph counter. Down at the bottom of the dial, there is a third one that describes the foudroyante, as it is originally named, or the flying seconds. This dial measures the stopped times, down to 1/6th of a second. Its design is a bit different from the other ones in the dial because it is skeletonized. In the right and the left side of this particular subdial, if you closely, you can see the two power reserves, which are both for 50 hours.

The Jaeger LeCoultre Duometre Chronographe is a beautiful machine that is worth every penny. All the dials move in perfect unison and immediately stand out wherever you are and no matter the outfit you are wearing.

Comments Off on Omega Speedmaster

Omega Speedmaster

by

First launched in 1957, the Omega Speedmaster was one of the most appreciated timepieces by those with a fine taste in motorsports and rallies. The main reasons for this were its bold design and chronograph performances. It is a well-known thing that the dial of the watch was inspired by the dashboard of Italian automobiles. Almost a decade before the Speedmaster became famous for its association with space missions, it was acknowledged by the entire watch industry as a superior chronograph with unparalleled aesthetic qualities.

The most noteworthy thing about the Speedmaster is the fact that it was the first chronograph watch ever that repositioned the tachymetric scale from the dial to the bezel.  This very important difference was just the innovation that Omega needed in order to transform its Speedmaster line into a memorable one. This change made it easier for the wearer to read elapsed time. Especially racing drivers found this improvement very useful.

So the fame of the Omega Speedmaster begun long before it was worn at the North or South Poles or on the Moon. This timeless instrument was adorning the wrists of professional race drivers a long way back, setting the foundations of Omega’s legacy.

One of the most unique variations of the classic Omega Speedmaster is called Racing. The Speedmaster Racing series includes outstanding chronograph watches that measure 40 mm in case diameter and feature a sleek matte black aluminum tachymetric ring on the bezel. The brand also offers this model with a grey/yellow, grey or grey red tachymetric scaling. Its solid stainless steel case is sturdy and fiercely constructed as to emphasize masculinity and durability. On the stunning screw-in case back there is the distinctive Seahorse emblem.

The ingenuity and authenticity of the original Speedmaster design is preserved on the new Racing line by offering the dial and sub-dials in a combination of colors that are reminiscent for the Speedmaster, but somehow these watches have a particular chromatic innovation that complete its identity. One of its most notable features are the 30-minutes and 12-hours counters and the small seconds hand sub-dial which are printed with a triangular “Clou de Paris” pattern. To offer maximum functionality, the Speedmaster Racing comes with a date window at 6 o’clock and the very durable luminescent material called Super-LumiNova is used to coat the hour markers as well as the hour and minutes hands.

The truth is that all Speedmaster models are inspired by the world of racing, but the Speedmaster Racing collection brings a more extravagant touch to the traditional black and white Speemaster look. The newer and super modern chromatics includes vivid colors like yellow, red, blue and silver. The secret is to combine the classic dial layout with contemporary textures and elements.

At the heart of the Speedmaster Racing beats a spectacular automatic mechanism developed and produced entirely by Omega. This very precise self-winding mechanical movement is known as the Omega calibre 9330 which is fitted with a Co-Axial escapement, a column-wheel chronograph mechanism and a Si14 silicon balance spring. The technical and functional performances of this chronograph movement are truly impressive providing superior precision and stability. The Racing models were constructed to endure water pressure associated with depths of 100 meters/330 feet. Also, this sporty model is offered with either a black rubber strap or a stainless steel bracelet.

Basically, the new Omega Speedmaster Racing line doesn’t surprise us just with its aesthetic upgrades, but it manages to take our breath away with a state of the art movement that has been created as a middle path between a completely in-house made Omega calibre as the 9300 and a base ETA mechanism.

Omega has played with the Speedmaster dial countless times before, but the Racing series brings by far the most interesting and fun innovations. Its casual and youthful aesthetics are incredibly appealing to the modern watches enthusiasts who want to find the perfect balance between design and functionality.

Comments Off on Gold Cartier Ballon Bleu

Gold Cartier Ballon Bleu

by

Cartier Ballon Bleu is the type of round watch that has a very fascinating and complex design. Its intriguing shape and weightless construction create a beautiful balance between femininity and masculinity. It appeals both our style and functionality needs with its effortless elegant look, amazing precision and versatility.

Apparently simple, the design of the Cartier Ballon Bleu surprises with rich and luxurious details. The most exquisite aesthetic touch is the sapphire cabochon which decorates the winding mechanism. Due to the sleek and refined precious metal protective arch, the blue stone looks like it is the gravitation center for the entire dial.

Like a skilled artisan, Cartier has constructed this extraordinary timepiece by using soft curves, rounded shapes and a charming mix of classic and contemporary influences. The layout of the Roman numerals is a futuristic distortion of the concept of time whereas the sapphire crystal magnifies the dial with a pinch of retro sophistication.

The name itself- Ballon Bleu- is reminiscent for a new horological dimension, one where diffracted roundness, elliptical profile and the extra-blue winding mechanism merge together in one of the most beautiful interpretations of a luxury time keeping device.  The construction of this watch represents a true work of art. Crafted from solid gold, the Cartier Ballon Bleu features a varnished silver opaline dial complemented by elegant black Roman numerals. The rounded layout of the dial is disrupted by the addition of a small date window at the 3 o’clock position. Cartier watches are notorious for their blue hands that look exquisite over the wavy patterned dial. The Ballon Bleu is no exception. The timepiece features the same slim sleek blue steel sword-shaped hands that sweep elegantly around the face of the watch. Authentic Cartier watch price is somewhere around 5,000 USD, although some exquisite models cost well over $25,000. Some people can be tempted to buy Cartier replica watch. Listen to my advice… just don’t!

The Cartier Ballon Bleu comes only in full gold version. The case, the bracelet and the clasp are manufactured from yellow or white gold which accentuates the preciosity of this wonderful design. This is also the reason why this model is so expensive and exclusivist. It represents a considerably rare timepiece that is usually custom made for some of the wealthiest people on the planet.

Cartier has chosen to construct the Ballon Bleu with a very precise and durable automatic mechanism. The watch is powered by an in-house Cartier Calibre 049 automatic movement that contributes to the finesse and exquisite feel of the timepiece. To protect this expensive and artfully crafted automatic movement, the brand has developed a very complex water proofed casing system that offers resistance up to a depth of 100 meters.

Explore the art of fine watchmaking with the extraordinary Cartier Ballon Bleu. A surprising design that floats like a balloon and hides at its side a blue and charming sapphire jewel, enriching your style with a dash of elegance and sophistication.

Comments Off on Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon

Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon

by

                The Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Tourbillon is a gorgeous piece that will surely make people stare wherever you go. Although the original price intended for it was well over $200,000, the craftsmanship involved in its design and the unique mechanisms truly make this piece one of a kind. Here are some of its greatest features:

  1. The traveler / boating design

One of the first things everybody notices when first laying eyes on the Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck is its design. Full of sea travelling and boating elements such as the anchors placed on the upper and the bottom of the watch dial, the thread system, the blue minute dials in the bottom part which remind the user of winches, which are metal spoon-like instruments used to crank up the sails and more, this beautiful piece truly encompasses what Ulysse Nardin was: a man who loved travelling. His passion for the ocean and the sea was equaled only by his love for watches. The Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck was designed as an homage to the creator of the company.

  1. The system used to change hour

There are two ways of changing the hour on the new Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Tourbillon. The first one, also the most interesting one is the one involving the intricate thread system designed to lift the navy blue jumping hour hand. By twisting a button located on the right side of the watch dial, the thread system slowly pulls the jumping hour hand to the right and when released, the small dial located on the upper side of the watch will now show a different hour. This is the perfect system to change the hour back or forth if you are travelling a lot. However, if you believe this is difficult and time consuming if you are travelling in time zones with 5-6-hour difference, you can always choose the second option. On the right side of the main dial, you will find a button. Every time you press it, the hour will change. This is a much easier option and convenient manner of changing the hour, but the first one is definitely unique.

Interesting and unique are but two of the words that describe this masterpiece. The Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Tourbillon is one of a kind and is a must own piece for all boat enthusiasts out there.
