Just Google Harry Winston Opus 3 and Vianney Halter Anti-qua and you will see why it’s so famous. These two timepieces are unlike any other wristwatches and are the works of this man. The latest creation of Vianney is the Star Trek-inspired Deep Space Tourbillon and at the time of it’s announced there was a lot of excitement.

4.    Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie Tourbillon Chronograph Watch

One of the most difficult complications to master is the minute repeater as there tons of things to consider before probing into it. First of all one has to consider about all moving parts and the sound it will make. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie Tourbillon Chronograph Watch took both considerations to the forefront and was manufactured as the ultimate minute repeating wristwatch. The case and the gongs had to design again to permit Audemars Piguet to reach its goal. If you are not satisfied with this, the timepiece also features a chronograph and tourbillon functions. For me it is one best technically accomplished wristwatches of 2016.

5.    Angelus U20 Ultra-Skeleton Tourbillon Watch

Angelus is revived brand launched recently owned by the La Joux-Perret umbrella which is in owned by Japanese brand Citizen. Angelus is famous for its association with Panerai and its chronograph but today Angelus is an entire different animal. The new U20 Ultra-Skeleton Tourbillon watch is a bright example of it.

6.    Faberge Visionnaire DTZ Watch

You may be thinking about the jewelry eggs specially made for the Russian tzars. But Faberge is still alive and well today with an ambitious plan for manufacturing watches. In order to turn their plan into action, they contacted the Jean-Marc Widerrecht of Agenhor- the man who helped to evolve pieces like the HM2 and HM3 from MB&F and the Harry Winston Opus 9. The result came out with unique Visionnaire DTZ watch that features a dual time zone unlike any other.

7.    Story of Transcendence: Tudor

Tudor is known as the younger sibling of Rolex with its rich 90 years or so history. The roots of the Tudor were founded in the philosophy of Hans Wilsdorf the Rolex founder to manufacture a watch that could be sold at more “modest price”. In the past decade, Tudor has made important strides and leaps to successfully come out of the shadows of big brother.

8.    F.P Journe Chronometer Bleu

Chronometer Bleu was introduced in 2009 and now it is one the most popular watches of F.P Journe. The reason for its popularity is not only the affordability but also its good looks. Though it is known to people but from manufacturing point of view, it is one of the most complicated timepieces of F.P Journe to produce. Tantalum has been used in the watch case which is hard material and a difficult one to work with. But the blue dial failed as its hard to get the due and the print completely right.

Wristwatches are admired by collectors as work of art and valuable piece of jewelry. The Replica Rolex Watches are elegant timepieces with classy appearance and very reasonable price. Wristwatch was originally designed as bracelet for women and men used pocket watches for time keeping. The wristwatches appeared on the scene at World War l when military men used to wear wristwatches instead of carrying pocket watches. Since then, it is one of the most famous men fashion accessories for decades.

Looking back to the history of wristwatch reveals that it was Cartier who produced the first wristwatch for men which was named Santos. The watch was named after Alberto Santos-Dumont, a pilot that personally asked Cartier to make a watch which can be used on flights. After the success of Santos, almost every watch maker started to work on wristwatches. The manufacturers produced variety of watches from expensive fashion timepieces that were used to express personal statement to accurate but inexpensive watches only to track the exact time. The appropriate and conventional men’s dress timepiece for formal, informal and semi formal attire includes gold, bare, thin and simple ones. But nowadays men use to fuse their attire in single and expensive wristwatches. Complicated, rugged and sports watches are used with almost every attire especially dressy as they are specially made for it. Some fashion wristwatches have bead or gem cut in convex from on the crown. However, few of them are manufactured of facetted sapphire.

Geek watches is another category of fashion watches. These types of watches not only tell the time but also features some of the satellite navigation, computer features and few other functions that differs from the mere concept of timekeeping. There are also timepieces that can track the time of two different time zones at the same time. Rolex GMT Master ll is a perfect example of such watches. These watches also serves best for professional pilots and travelers. Classic watches like Rolex Day-date are in high demand amongst professional users. The main thing is to set your budget before going out to buy watch, because there are simple or common watches with ordinary materials. The prices of these watches are few dollars. On the other, luxury watches are made from special material which raises the price of the timepieces. There are imitative watches of luxury timepieces but they are placed under reasonable price tags so that common people can also enjoy luxurious features.

A Brief History of Automatic Watches

tumblr_ng6sg7RbU11rb86ldo1_1280Luxury watches are manufactured from all around the world, but Swiss made watches are leading the world of horology. Whether you are talking about Rolex, Patek Phillipe, Franck Muller or Audemars Piguet all are perfect timepieces with different kind of functions. Luxury watches are only for elite class, and everyone is not supposed to wear them. As an alternate replica watches are gaining fame day-by-day, authentic replica watches are available on solidswiss.cd with fabulous designs and artistic craftsmanship. Only few people are aware of the fact that there is a rich history of automatic feature of wristwatches.

Wristwatch is the significant factor for almost every professional men and woman. However, most of the people only love to wear a perfect watch; they have no concern about how it is manufactured. Let’s share an interesting brief story of automatic watches. In today’s modern world, it seems ridiculous to wind your watch to keep the proper time in your watch. It is fact that people used to wound their watches for hundreds of years. The self-winding or automatic watch was not invented until 1770. The invention of this feature clarified modern watch making and made it easy for the people around the world to keep track of time.

The first self-winding watch was manufactured by Swiss watchmaker named Abraham-Louis Perrelet in 1770. In 1770, he advanced a self-winding mechanism for pocket watches that is used in modern pedometers. Due to the walking of the person wearing the watch, the mechanism moved up and down thus enabled automatic winding of the watch. After few days, GSA (Geneva Society of Arts) declared that this invention empowered the watch to wind adequately for eight days of timekeeping with only fifteen minutes of walk. Thus, automatic watch was born of this invention. Eventually, Perrelet sold few of watch designs to his fellow watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet. Breguet was aiming to introduce new designs that were unreliable, so he changed his goal and discontinued the manufacturing of his designs. The real conversion began when the same feature of self-winding was applied to wristwatches. Pocket watches needed a walk from a wearer while wristwatches required a movement of the arm for winding. The first person to use this feature to wristwatch was John Harwood. He took out patents concerning mechanism that were known as bumpers or hammers. This mechanism enabled the watch to wound if it was moved in a single direction. The watch was presented in a lot of 30000, and it became the first successful automatic watch.

The Rolex provided the final push towards the universal promotion of the self-winding watch. The Rolex Company improved the automatic mechanism of John Harwood and enabled the watch to wind from the movement in all directions. The capacity of storing energy was also improved, and thus watch was allowed to run automatically for up to 35 hours. As Rolex adopted this feature, this led many other companies to develop their automatic watches. In late 1960s, abundant of self-winding wristwatches were introduced by various companies. Self-winding feature changed the whole world of horology, and the watches we wear are due to this feature.
