About the dominant colour at Basel world this year, it must be blue. But when designing cool-looking cases, black still holds its key place. Why? Generally, steel applies to such finishes, which means that they can not always guarantee the depth and quality of their “blackness”. And this is a technique area which needs a continuous improve. and this is also the reason why among all the alternative case materials, they still remain to use the calling card of truly innovative brands.
Pretty handsome of course. But the V4 case, represents more than cool design: fake watches all seven bridges of the legendary movement (which adopts a micro-belt transmission powered by a linear weight in place of a traditional hairspring and balance wheel assembly) are designed by using CMC, and created the dark grey and anthracite dial. Titanium carbide is applied to decorate the surface, without much color added but the 48 jewels.
TAG Heuer replica watches, as the lead amongst them, has just released a version of its landmark Monaco V4 belt-driven timepiece. And this timepiece is designed almost wholly from a Carbon Matrix Composite. During this particular process, they mould the individual carbon fibres after microblasting, at last a matt, ‘brushed’ appearance is successfully created.
Three company founders, engineer August Eberstein, merchant Alfred Nehemias and stationery trader Claus Voss, traveled by steamship to the United States where they were inspired to develop a writing instrument with a non-leaking body and a piston converter, laying the foundations for a business that four years later would be named replica Montblanc. It was the city of departure for scores of cross-Atlantic voyages with several of its ships carrying passengers (and cargo) to the United States.
Montblanc’s 4810 collection commemorates those early 20th-century voyages by introducing three commemorative limited editions: the ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Edition, the TwinFly Chronograph 110 Years Edition and the Orbis Terrarum Pocket replica Watches 110 Years Edition. The minutes of the home time are set via the crown. When travelling, the new local time zone is simply placed at 6 o’clock via the pusher at 8 o’clock, which works in one-hour jumps without affecting the minutes.
Replica Montblanc was created 110 years ago by gentlemen who took a trip. A trip to America, Lambert explains. The spirit and heritage of Montblanc replica is reflected in this new collection, he adds. The famed writing instrument company was founded in 1906 in the port city of Hamburg, Germany. Through the 1930s Hamburg thrived as a cultural hub and a center of international trade.
Montblanc this year is inspired by these adventures. Its founders in that first decade of the 20th century embarked on their own Atlantic voyage to New York. Montblanc celebrates its 110th anniversary in 2016 with a launch of new timepieces that are inspired by ocean travel.
Hamburg is of course represented on the watch. The ExoTourbillon Slim is inspired by the golden age of transatlantic trade and travel and introduces the new Manufacture Calibre MB 29.21. One of the new pieces, the Orbis Terrarum, allows the wearer to see the continents as viewed from the North Pole with 24 cities representing the different time zones. Thanks to the special construction of the ExoTourbillon – with the balance wheel outside the tourbillon cage for a better isochronism of the balance’s oscillation – the stop-seconds mechanism halts the screwed balance wheel without losing its kinetic energy.
With this in mind, Montblanc CEO Jerôme Lambert explains in this iW video that if he were coming to America as his company’s forebears did in the early 1900s, most people and himself included would have been wearing a pocket replica watches. This helps explain why this year Montblanc features a pocket watch among its 2017 debuts.
