The most distinctive feature of this new IWC Yacht Club Chronograph replica watch is the 45.4mm rubber-coated stainless steel case. This is offset by the polished steel bezel and pushers, which adds some shine to the otherwise matte appearance. We’ve seen this galvanized rubber treatment on previous watches, most notably some Aquatimers, but it’s a first in the Portuguese collection.
Today we have a new boutique exclusive for you, the Swiss-made IWC Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph copy watch. The boutique exclusive is nothing new for IWC Men’s Replica. In the last year, we’ve seen a unique collection of IWC Big Pilot Top Gun watches, including a Big Pilot, a Chronograph, and a Perpetual Calendar, as well as a Portofino celebrating the opening of the IWC flagship boutique in Rome.
Inside is the same movement that powers the other Yacht Club Chronographs, the caliber 89361. This in-house automatic movement is a powerhouse, with a 68 hour power reserve and a chronograph that both is a flyback and uses the combined hours/minutes counters in one register at 12 o’clock. This makes reading elapsed time as intuitive as reading the time of day.
You do however get white accents on the running seconds at 6 o’clock and the outer portion of the chronograph totalizer at 12 o’clock. Combined with the luminous leaf hands, this gives the watch a great balance between elegance and sportiness. The deep black dial is complemented by a matching black minutes/seconds track around the outer edge – the standard version has a white track here, breaking up the visual impact of the dark dial.
Only 250 of these unique fake IWC Yacht Clubs watch will be produced and they will be available exclusively through IWC boutiques worldwide.
Breitling’s new offering at the Avenger Hurricane sees the brand up the ante with functionality and hard-core materials.At Baselworld this year, GQ became transfixed on the Breitling rack, a watchmaker that is synonymous with daring and technical timepieces steeped in military history. The launching of their in-house base movement the Caliber B01 back in 2009 heralded a new era for the brand and the Avenger series; the newest is the Hurricane, launched at Baselworld 2016, and another reason why Brietling continues to push the boundaries of contemporary watch making.The watch case is made of a new proprietary metal called ‘Breitlight’ tracking the recent convention of watch manufacturers making their own case materials. In reality Breitling says Breitlight is four times lighter than titanium but ‘much harder’. Its listed attributes are fairly convincing. More resistance to dents, traction, and rust, it’s increased thermal equilibrium, is antimagnetic and non-allergenic. The item itself is hard, bulky and masculine. Having a title such as the Avenger Hurricane – you wouldn’t really expect anything else. In the new military-aviation-inspired tradition the 50-mm-diameter case houses an all-black “stealth” color scheme with follow yellow accents. The hour numerals are mirror and big a rocky strap layering a challenging textile fiber exterior over a yellow rubber core.
Inspired by aeronautical design, swiss mens replica watchmaker Bell & Ross in partnership with Shaw Harley-Davidson, recently unveiled the B-Rocket prototype bike. Bell & Ross mens replica have also created two horological companions for the retro-futuristic bike, matching the machine’s spirit and aesthetics superbly.
“We decided to do another project together, developing a special bike inspired by the Bell & Ross universe,” explains Bruno Bellamich, the designer manager of Bell & Ross. “The name of the bike is the B-Rocket – we wanted to design a bike like a plane. The lines of the bike are inspired by aerodynamics, speed bikes and planes from the ‘60s – it’s a neo retro concept. For planes, the most mythical period is the ‘60s and ‘70s, with all those experimental planes and radical concepts. It’s a timeless instant – you don’t even understand what it is – is it a future concept or a different planet? This era expresses innovation and man’s intelligence.”
An airplane-motorcycle, the B-Rocket is designed to be extremely aerodynamic with lines that encapsulate the essential principles of the vintage fighter jet planes. It is much more than just a motorcycle – it can cut through air with its striking conical jet nose, its cabin, its fin and its propulsion turbines. It is made to epitomise the union between performance and precision. Above all, it is the living proof that represents a replica watchmaking firm that believes in the authenticity of design and functions while constantly aiming to perfect the modernity of the past.
The motorcycle used the Harley-Davidson Softail Blackline FXS as a base, but everything was modified for the B-Rocket – the bike looks like nothing else that has come before it. Streamlined and aerodynamic, the B-Rocket is meant to go fast – using a jet-looking nose cone, a cabin protecting the pilot from the wind blast, the twin turbines and the fin at the back. The 1,584 cm V-Twin engine has a custom exhaust system.
Two new B-Rocket inspired replica watches the BR01 B-Rocket (at 46mm) and the BR03 B-Rocket (42mm) are fabulous addition. The BR01 version is a chronograph with tachymeter scale and three, uniquely designed counters. The BR03 model has a large date window and a power-reserve indicator. The padded leather of the straps is directly inspired by the bike’s cushioning, where the rider lies almost completely prone to pilot the dynamic bike.
The Heritage line by Breguet Mens Replica gives a 21st century twist to a classic repertoire. Curved along two axes in a “tonneau” or barrel shape ensuring a perfect fit on the wrist, Heritage timepieces are the epitome of technical mastery. This year, Breguet sought out to broaden the range of complications with the Breguet Heritage Grande Date 5410 replica watch.
The keenly appreciated date indication enthroned at 12 o’clock enlivens a finely crafted silvered gold face reflecting the double curvature of the Breguet Heritage Grande Date 5410 replica watch case. Delicate engine-turned motifs create a wealth of structural and depth effects that both highlight and delineate the other functions of the model and thus ensure enhanced legibility. The chapter ring, bearing large transferred Roman numerals coated with a luminescent substance, surrounds the minute scale. These indications are complemented by a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock.
Clothed in 18-carat rose or white gold, the 45 x 32 mm Breguet Heritage Grande Date 5410 replica watch rounds out the collection composed of both men’s and ladies’ models. The large date thus joins existing complications such as a chronograph, a tourbillon and a retrograde moon phase.
