Chopard Mille Miglia 2016 XL Race Edition and Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed black

In 2016, the Mille Miglia collection received two limited-edition models: the Mille Miglia 2016 XL Race Edition, a 46 mm chronograph, and the 43 mm Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed black which is actually a DLC coated version of the Mille Miglia GTS Automatic launched last year.

IWC Replica Watches
Chopard introduced the Mille Miglia collection in 1988, celebrating its partnership with “la corsa più bella del mondo”, an annual rally of classic and vintage cars, stretching from Brescia to Rome, and back. This collection is all about classic racing style, potent energy, speed, precision, and elegance.

Chopard Mille Miglia 2016 XL Race Edition

Unlike previous versions of the Mille Miglia chronographs, on the circular satin-brushed black dial, the three subdials are laid out horizontally and the date window is placed between 4 and 5 o’clock, while 12 o’clock is reserved for the “Rossa Corsa” red arrow-shaped Mille Miglia logo that we can also find on the back of the replica Watch.

The 2016 XL Race brings a completely new engine, the COSC certified Chopard Calibre 03.05-C column wheel chronograph with a power reserve of 60-hours.

Limited to 1,000 pieces, the Mille Miglia 2016 XL Race Edition is inspired by the design codes of the cars that took part in the historical race between 1927 and 1940. The XL in the name stands for its 46 mm-diameter case, that makes it the largest of the Mille Miglia wrist chronographs created by Chopard. The two tradition chronograph pushers are paired with a typical Chopard Mille Miglia-style fluted crown.

The replica Watch is matched with a brown SUPORTLO calfskin strap with vintage treatment, to acquire a weathered look over time.

The black theme is used on the back of the replica Watch too, the see-through crystal is tinted and the surrounding bright red gasket provides a great view of the COSC-certified Chopard Calibre 01.01-M movement, with its engine-style finishes and its open-worked oscillating weight. The Haute-horology finishing of the movement is also inspired by vintage motorsport, the grooved bridges are echoing the cooling fins on racing cars.

Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed black and its engine, the COSC certified automatic calibre 01.01-M

Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed black and its engine — it really looks like one — the COSC certified automatic calibre 01.01-M

Limited to 1,000 pieces, the Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed black with its large numerals recalling the dashboard of a racing car from the 1950s, its engine style finishing and its black rubber strap with vintage Dunlop racing tyre-tread motif, makes it a racing beast with a good-old-days charm.

The 43 mm case is entirely treated with black DLC coating, that only looks cool but it also protects it from scratches. The velvet-finished black dial offers a fantastic backdrop to the Super-LuminNova coated indexes, hands and bold numerals. To add more action, the black date window is included in the Rossa Corsa red Mille Miglia logo at 3 o’clock.

The jasmine flower depicted in mother-of-pearl at the heart of the dial provides a subtle reminder of the origins of the collection, created as a homage to the heroin of the Puccini opera, Turandot, whose splendour is associated with jasmine. Blued leaf hands sweep over the Roman numeral indexes, echoing the blue sapphire dome of the crown. The date is delicately emphasized by a steel border at 3 o’clock.

The T-Trend Lady comes in either quartz or automatic. The replica Watch geek in us, of course, will recommend the automatic version that is powered by the newly developed Powermatic 80 calibre. This new movement is not just accurate, but it is also blessed with a very useful 80 hours of power reserve, meaning that your lady can put down the replica Watch on Friday and Monday morning, it would still run.

OK, enough about the gears, the T-Trend Lady in it’s proportions, the decoration of the dial, the shape of the hands prove that this is after all a ladies replica Watch with truly feminine lines. The price is incredible, $750 for a Swiss automatic replica Watch.

We hope this story will help you find a beautiful gift, to grace for many years the wrist of that special lady!

Introducing CORUM Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Double Tourbillon

CORUM Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Double Tourbillon made of grade 5 titanium.

CORUM Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Double Tourbillon made of grade 5 titanium.

Regarded as the epitome of sporting chic in the noblest sense of the term, the Admiral’s Cup now welcomes an eminently complicated new movement: hand-wound Caliber CO 1008. This exclusive mechanism features nothing less than a double tourbillon, combined with a retrograde date and an ingenious time-adjustment system.

Simply by pressing the crown pushbutton, the wearer can bring the minutes hand instantly to the 12th index so as to set the exact time – and this can be done up to five minutes before or after a full hour.rolex replica watches

Available in 18K red gold or grade 5 titanium, the case of the Admiral’s Cup AC-One Double Tourbillon stylishly displays a generous 45 mm diameter enhanced by an immediately recognizable design. Clearly cut out for adventure, it is endowed with impressive water resistance to a depth of 300 meters.

Contemporary and sophisticated

Embodying an authentic horological challenge, Caliber CO 1008 finds the perfect stage setting in the iconic twelve-sided case of the Admiral’s Cup – born in 1960 and redesigned in 2013, while remaining staunchly true to the signature codes that have earned it legendary status. Based on a contemporary architecture featuring alternating polished and satin-brushed finishes, its layered construction comprises black PVD-coated titanium inserts appearing in turn between the case back and middle and then between the bezel and the case middle – all contributing to a masterfully structured aesthetic approach.

For over two centuries, the tourbillon has been a symbol of chronometric precision. Designed to compensate for gravity-induced rate variations in vertical positions, it remains one of the major complications that is the hardest to produce. Corum has achieved an authentic tour de force in equipping its new Caliber CO 1008 with not just one but indeed two parallel-mounted tourbillons, dedicated to ensuring remarkable reliability backed by a generous 72-hour power reserve. And the feat doesn’t stop there, since this masterfully orchestrated mechanism is fitted with a retrograde date and a particularly innovative time adjustment device.

The dial swept over by luminescent hands and hour-markers is adorned with an exclusive design specially developed for Corum: the split pomegranate motif. Forming small diagonally-incised squares, this composition creates an elegant depth effect accentuated by the inner bezel ring stamped with the emblematic nautical pennants of the Admiral’s Cup collection.

CORUM Introduces the BOL D’OR MIRABAUD

Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Bol d’Or Mirabaud – Photo: Marc Ninghetto

CORUM links its name to the world’s most important regatta on an inland lake by becoming Presenting Sponsor of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud, which will commence on June 12. Reaffirming its commitment to sailing, CORUM is continuing its history and expanding its presence in the sailing sponsorship arena.

 

CORUM is very pleased to be associated with this major event. This partnership is completely consistent with existing partnerships and is in line with the brand’s primary goal which is to create long-term value.

The Bol d’Or has indeed become one of the favorite venues of the Okalys-Corum team who won the regatta twice in the past five years (in 2005 and 2007). It is also to be noted that at the time of these two victories, the skipper alongside Nicolas Grange was Loïck Peyron, CORUM’s new ambassador. With his breathtaking list of accomplishments, the Frenchman, who is regarded as one of the greatest sailors, keeps a unique memory of his past participation in this regatta: « To win the lake’s most popular regatta is quite an achievement. Before I used to follow it from a distance, but in 2005 when we won it for the first time, Nicolas Grange presented us with a small replica of the highly coveted trophy. It still takes pride of place on my desk.»

The Bol d’Or Mirabaud, currently in its 72nd year, is unlike any other regatta in the world. The legendary race is a place where sailing stars are mixed with non-professional sailors, and the event is the pride of the Lake Geneva region and delights sailing enthusiasts.

Organized for the first time in 1939, this large nautical festival has become one of the greatest classics of the international regatta calendar. Each year, nearly six hundred sailboats and champions from all over Europe meet at the starting line, in the company of more than 3,000 participants from all backgrounds, having their passion for sailing in common.

CORUM CEO Antonio Calce said:
« The rebirth of the CORUM brand, which has expressed itself by returning to its roots, has naturally brought us to support the sailing world to which we have always had a strong connection. I am proud to associate CORUM with the historical regatta of the Bol d’Or. Today we build our future in continuity as in 1994, the Corum boat that participated in the 56th edition of the Bol d’Or won the monohull class competition and still holds the record in this category (Bol d’Or Vermeil). We therefore are looking forward to participating in this great adventure of which values cherished by CORUM, such as authenticity and passion, are also the key words of the event. »

This new partnership is strengthening the brand’s ties not only to amazing sailors such as Ben Ainslie and Loïck Peyron but also to prestigious sailing events such as the Grand Prix Corum, which this year will be the final race in the Challenge Julius Baer, taking place on September 17, 18 and 19.

In order to celebrate this partnership, CORUM will launch a limited edition “Admiral’s Cup Chronograph 48 Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2010 “ of 35 pieces. The special edition of the brand’s iconic model famous for its dodecagonal bezel and a dial decorated with nautical pennants, will play with the colors of the regatta which are Blue and Gold. The model will symbolize the partnership by becoming the official replica Watch of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud and one of these limited edition timepieces will be presented to the winning team of the Bol d’Or and the Bol de Vermeil.

Managing Partner and Member of the Executive Committee of Mirabaud, Antonio Palma, added:
« Every year we look forward to the unique event that is the Bol d’Or Mirabaud. At the 72nd regatta, we are pleased to welcome CORUM by our side as presenting sponsor. We anticipate that the future of this collaboration will bring great rewards to all parties during one of the most important sporting events in Geneva. »

THE BOL D’OR MIRABAUD

The racecourse is as simple as it can get: Genève – Le Bouveret – Genève. There is only one mark on the course, halfway through the race (at Le Bouveret).

The real time winner of the Genève-Le Bouveret-Genève race wins the Bol d’Or Challenge, which is presented each year, however if it is won three times in the previous five years by the same owner, it can be kept by the winner indefinitely. Only three boats have achieved this in over 70 years of the regatta: the Marie-José II owned by Horace Julliard (1961, 1962 and 1963), the Altaïr IX owned by Philippe Stern (1980, 1982 and 1984) and Ernesto Bertarelli’s Alinghi (1997, 2000 and 2001).

The Bol de Vermeil Trophy rewards exclusively the first monohull to cross the finishing line. As for the Bol d’Or Challenge, it has to be won three times in five years to be awarded indefinitely.

 

CORUM

Over the past few years, CORUM has undergone a complete transformation that has enabled it to achieve a perfect match between the products and the demands for quality and creativity that are the very foundations of its credibility. Its firmly upscale move is a logical result of the brand’s efforts to recapture its historical standing while significantly reinforcing its horological substance. CORUM’s substantial investments have led to the integration of replica Watchmaking skills, the development of production tools, the enhancement of human resources and the promotion of staff training. The result is a brand once again entirely in tune with its genetic heritage.

Bol d’Or Mirabaud Organization Committee President, Michel Glaus, said:
« As the world’s most important regatta on an inland lake, the Bol d’Or has always been able to count on very prestigious partners. The 2010 regatta will not be an exception as the Bol d’Or Mirabaud is pleased to welcome CORUM as the new “presenting sponsor”, alongside our title sponsor, Mirabaud private bank. We look forward to our future collaboration with this renowned replica Watchmaking company, long known for its strong identification with the world of international sailing.»

While passion, determination and innovation are associated with CORUM’s image today, it is mainly shared values that are at the heart of this partnership. The magnificent adventure will take place June 11-13, 2010.

Positioned as an exclusive brand, CORUM offers high-quality replica Watch collections featuring innovative and distinctive design, and equipped with sophisticated mechanical movements. Its 150 current models, spread between four key pillars – Admiral’s Cup, Romvlvs, Corum Bridges and Artisans – enjoy a legitimacy rooted in the brand history. The full set of collections comprises models at prices ranging from 5,000 to 1 million Swiss francs and giving pride of place to precious metals and horological complications.

In 1960, the first interpretation of the Admiral’s Cup model paved the way for CORUM’s success. This model remains thanks to its history, which is inextricably bound up with major sailing competitions and prestigious sailors, as well as for its inimitable esthetic based on a twelve-sided case and a dial set off by twelve nautical pennants. These are its distinctive and unmistakable identifying characteristics.

Presenting Arnold & Son HM Perpetual Moon steel case

Arnold & Son HM Perpetual Moon

Arnold & Son HM Perpetual Moon steel case, blue guilloché dial

Unlike the previous versions of the HM Perpetual Moon that were crafted from 18k rose gold, the 42 mm case of this latest model is made from stainless steel. The translucent blue lacquered guilloché dial features one of the largest moonphase displays on the market, taking up almost half of its surface. The 29 mm moonphase disk is decorated with the same blue lacquered guilloché as the dial, with two 11.2 mm three-dimensional hand-sculpted moon disks.

Arnold & Son has unveiled a new version of the HM Perpetual Moon with a steel case and blue guilloché dial. It is part of the Arnold & Son Royal Collection of timepieces inspired by replica Watches Replica created in the early part of John Arnold’s life, a tribute to traditional replica Watchmaking and classical decorative arts.

 

Arnold & Son HM Perpetual Moon

Thanks to its two barrels, the calibre delivers 90 hours of power reserve.

Besides all these technical features, the movement receives the attention and care worthy of a royal timepiece, such as manually chamfered bridges with polished edges, Côtes de Genève rayonnantes and fine circular graining, circular grained wheels, and blued screws with polished and chamfered edges.

The back of the replica Watch reveals the A&S1512 hand-wound movement, developed especially for the HM Perpetual Moon. The moonphase is not just a module added to a base calibre, but the entire movement was developed around this complication. One of the unique features of this movements is the addition of a second moon display visible on the back of the replica Watch, featuring a graduated dial and a pointer hand that helps in setting the moonphase in a more precise manner.

The A&S1512 is designed to offer one of the most accurate moon phases on the market with only one day’s deviation every 122 years – at which point a single push on the corrector will keep it in sync for another 122 years.

Glashütte Original Produces two chronographs using the new Calibre 37

Glashütte Original Calibre 37 makes its debut with the dressy Senator Chronograph Panorama Date and the vintage inspired Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date.

Earlier this year, Glashütte Original (GO) presented at Baselworld a new chronograph movement, the Calibre 37. The first models to be powered by it are the dressy Senator Chronograph Panorama Date and the vintage inspired Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date. Both models will be available first in the Saxon manufactory’s own boutiques and later through the replica Watchmaker’s dealers.

The chronograph’s reliability is enhanced by the space-saving coupling clutch, which operates by means of an oscillating pinion. It was designed to travel the same short path when both engaging and disengaging the clutch.

Sophisticated technical solutions assure the new chronograph’s particularly high degree of precision. Adjustment is handled without a regulator using four gold screws on the balance wheel, which permits a continuous and thus more precise performance of the replica Watch over an especially long period of time.

The manufactory-made 4Hz automatic movement assures maximum functionality through its efficient and reduced method of construction. An example is the switch lever; in the new chronograph, in contrast to previous designs, it is comprised of only one part. The new movement thus guarantees the highest possible switching security, with room for error and susceptibility to interference effectively reduced to near zero.

The platinum version features a superb silver dial with laser-engraved black tachometric scale, railroad chapter ring and Roman numerals; all engravings are filled in black before the gold dial is polished in preparation for subsequent silver plating. The process, known as “silver plating by friction”, involves the application by hand of a fine silver powder, resulting in a beautiful, durable and unique dial. This lustrous silver dial edition is presented in a polished and satin brushed platinum case; a blue sapphire is mounted on the crown

With a power reserve of 70 hours when fully wound, the new automatic Calibre 37 represents an absolute peak value in the realm of mechanical chronographs. In order to keep the performance and amplitude stable over the entire period of time, a new oscillation system with low energy requirements was developed, managed by a single spring barrel. Optimal translation between spring barrel and oscillation system assures very solid and precise performance with no deviations over 70 hours.
