Hiren Kumar Bose profiles the six new launches of March 2020
BREITLING Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition
The timepiece commemorates 17 years of collaboration – the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer – and focuses on the Bentley Mulliner workshop, which since 1959 has crafted the leading luxury carmaker’s most unique tailor-made models. The new chronograph has some close links to the interior of the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, the most luxurious GT ever designed, and particularly to the Breitling clock in the luxury automobile’s dashboard. Limited to 1000 pieces, it features a 42-mm stainless steel case presented on a blue alligator leather strap, echoing the Imperial Blue leather interior of the car. Its elegant silver dial recalls the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible’s dashboard clock. The watch features blue subdials – a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small-second subdial at 9 o’clock – an indication revealing the presence of the Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01, with an impressive power reserve of approximately 70 hours gta san andreas. The dial features a white tachymeter scale on a blue inner bezel around the dial, with a red tachymeter inscription.
The links between the watch and the clock are further strengthened by their complementary sets of Arabic numerals: the dashboard clock features the numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9, while the watch has them at 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11. Sharing these numerals across the two pieces is a nod to the design DNA they share. The red second hand and centred 60-minute scale mirror the red stitching found throughout the interior cabin of the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible. On the left side of the case is a plate with an engraved “Bentley” inscription, whose design is based on the engine spin dashboard found in historic Bentleys. Around the watch’s transparent sapphire caseback is an inscription that reads “MULLINER EDITION – BREITLING – ONE OF 1000”. The Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition is a COSC-certified chronometer 노트4 앱 다운로드.
SEIKO Presage Prestige Line 2020 Limited Edition
A 3-hand mechanical watch with a calendar that pays homage to the design of the Crown Chronograph from 1964, Japan’s first wristwatch with a stopwatch function developed for the first international sports event held in Japan. Presage, which has inherited Seiko’s watchmaking tradition, has released a limited-edition model that pays homage to the design of the Crown Chronograph. Although a one-push chronograph, the use of a pillar wheel allows reliable control of the stopwatch. The design of the 1964 Crown Chronograph has been reproduced as faithfully as possible 단편선과 선원들 다운로드. The clearly defined Arabic numerals applied to the narrow bezel and the fine minute gradations highlighted on the dial has been reproduced throughout. The case has an inwardly tilted shape so that it rests securely on the wrist, which increases stability. High legibility is ensured day and night through the use of Lumibrite on the distinctive indexes. A non-reflective coating is applied to the inner surface of the sapphire glass to improve legibility even further. The letters “Limited Edition” and the serial number 0001/1964-1964/1964 are inscribed on the case back as proof of this limited quantity edition. It has a power reserve of 70 hours, therefore, there is no concern about the remaining power on Monday morning even if the watch is unused over the weekend Ssl.
MOSER & CIE Concept Fume
It has been five years since H. Moser & Cie. released their first purely minimalist Concept model, equipped with a dial void of indices or logo. The Concept series was so successful that H. Moser & Cie. decided to include it in its collection. The fumé dial has become the brand’s signature – even without a logo – so much so that ‘fumé’ is now automatically associated with H flume 다운로드. Moser & Cie. In honour of the fifth anniversary of their Concept series, H. Moser & Cie. has produced three new models available in different versions, which combine graceful proportions, harmonious forms, and high-end finishes with 100% Swiss Made manufacture calibres. Available in 5N red gold, white gold or steel, in a three-hand version or with a tourbillon movement, with the Endeavour case, the manufacture plays with different tones of its famous fumé dial: the famous Funky Blue and colour previously unseen in the Endeavour family – aptly named Burgundy – are paired with the sublime brilliance of the diamonds adorning the bezel of the 38 mm model. By putting the emphasis on substance rather than labels, H. Moser & Cie. proves once again that simplicity can be both surprisingly effective and unexpectedly powerful 건전한 다운로드.
ZENITH Elite Moonphase
After the Cohiba and Trinidad cigar brands, Zenith and Habanos break new ground in their partnership with two firsts: a Romeo Y Julieta watch collaboration, and the first special edition of the redesigned Elite collection introduced this year at the inaugural edition of the LVMH Watch Week. Established in 1875 and celebrating its 145th anniversary this year, Romeo y Julieta is one of the most revered names in the world of Cuban cigars. Among the many avid devotees of Romeo y Julieta was Sir Winston Churchill, to whom the brand has named its flagship vitola in his honour.
For this opulent creation, Zenith sought to create a whimsical, romantic reinterpretation of its timeless Elite Moonphase. As the tale goes, Romeo and Juliet lived out their romance under the veil of night, with the moon and stars as their only witnesses 환타지소설 다운로드. This is portrayed in the Elite Moonphase Romeo y Julieta edition, where the double hemispherical moonphase complication is set against a deep yet radiant blue sunray-patterned dial with a gradient effect on the men’s “Romeo” version and a gradient red dial on the women’s “Julieta” version, embellished with the Romeo y Julieta logo. The uniquely executed moonphase display depicts the two lovers in an eternal chase across the night sky, with their faces as drawn in Romeo y Julieta cigar boxes meticulously laser-engraved onto each of the two silvery moons. Instead of a traditional arch-shaped opening on the dial to display the moonphase, Zenith opted for two round apertures to keep the sunray-pattern of the dial intact 인크레더블 다운로드. Crafted in a 40.5mm “Romeo” stainless steel case and a 36mm “Julieta” stainless steel case with 75 diamonds set into the bezel, these special Elite models are paired with alligator leather straps in colours matching the dial, while the colours of the lining are inversed. The Elite Moonphase Romeo y Julieta will be made in a special box-set containing both models and limited to 145 pairs in commemoration of Romeo y Julieta´s cigar brand 145th anniversary.
URWERK UR-111C Two-Tone
Limited to 25 pieces, the UR-111C – now in a striking Two-Tone (TT) black PVD and brushed steel, teardrop profile comes with three key advances for watchmaking 3d 운전교실. The first is a retrograde linear minute display in an end-mounted driver’s watch style. This is a spinoff of the mechanism invented for the UR-CC1 but with a twist. Here the numerals are set in a 30° diagonal slant for better readability. This means that the rotating cylinder onto which the minute indicator is painted must rotate 300 degrees about its axis, during which a coiled spring is wound. At the 60th minute, the spring is released, making the indicator jump a further 60 degrees and back to the start position. But it also makes the hour indicator to its left jump too. The result is a pleasing optical illusion of the cylinder rotating endlessly and seamlessly. The second innovation is the seconds display. Openwork Arabic numerals are set onto two wheels, each graduated in ten-second increments 사브리나 다운로드. Each wheel is made using a cutting edge process of lithography, electroplating and moulding devised precisely for the creation of very light and specific structures. Indeed, each wheel, complete with its six numerals, weighs just 0.025g – and that’s just as well, given the delicate dance that the two will now take part in. Interlocking like the teeth on cogs, they show a smooth progression of passing seconds moving at a distance of just one-tenth of a millimetre – under what looks to be a kind of circular lens, but which is a cluster of optical fibres. The third and, in many ways, most stimulating new concept that the UR-111C introduces is its fresh take on the crown, for winding and setting. Doing away with the conventional, side-mounted winder, Urwerk’s new piece introduces a roller system, positioned right across the middle of the case top. Rolling will further charge the watch’s self-winding movement. When small lever to the right side of the case is released, the same roller can be used to set the time, with stop-seconds functionality. The arranging all these micro-mechanics to create the end form of the UR-111C watch has been no easy task. The transmission had to be reimagined to allow a horizontal movement to provide a vertical time read-out within the crystal glass-covered truncated cones to both sides of the linear display. Connecting a roller crown to the winding stem likewise took feats of engineering, minuscule in scale but no less striking in effect.
GRAHAM Chronofighter Pulsometer Limited
Limited to 250 pieces with functions like Chronograph(seconds), day-date at 9 o’clock, hours, minutes and seconds this 44mm steel-cased limited edition watch comes with the brand’s fast-action start/stop trigger and reset pusher.
