It’s a primary reason why that $35, 3-6-9, drug store three-hander lacks the same appeal of what is likely a very similar, at a distance at least, watch costing multitudes more. The Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694 you see before you was purchased new in Frankfurt, Gerseveralin 1989. Today, we’ll take a look at a good example of pleasing design: a very simple, yet sporty watch that deserves consideration. I saw them initially with silver, gray and blue dials and although several looked quite old, several looked relatively modern. We’re here with a vintage Rolex, however warm up those fingers because winding is required; the Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694 is on #TBT.
I was in London with my then girlfriend, now wife, during a long weekend and I ran across a lot of little used watch shops. The Rolex that forms the subject of today’s article is a real “under the radar” piece. Of course, Rolex’s were heavily featured in the windows and among the severalsports models and Datejusts, I kept running into these basic, however highly attractive Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694 models. I actually don’t own this Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694 and, quite frankly, hadn’t really ever seen an Oysterdate Precision “in the metal” up until 3-4 years ago. Pricing, I quickly noted, was rather reasonable in the thousand British pound range. The Rolex Oysterdate is a no-nonsense stainless steel Rolex that will suit anyone who doesn’t fancy a date.It’s interesting as the watch has a case from 1985-1986 however like a lot of later Rolex 6694′s, it either sat around unsold or Rolex pumped out a lot of cases in that time-frame before deciding to discontinue the model a few years later.
I found that these models were extremely popular in Europe, however less thus in the flashier, Sub and President-wearing, USA. It was introduced as the 6694 in the early 1960′s and made up until the late 1980′s; blogs show the model in the catalog as late as 1988. The thing, though, that really sparked my interest was that these Precisions were manual wind watches. So, it was off to the internet to do a bit of research. Aside from Daytonas, Cellini models and several older Explorers and Air Kings, I hadn’t realized that Rolex produced a manual wind model for thus long and until thus late.
My friend, however, bought the watch less than two years later in almost NOS condition for less than 500 Euros (then Deutsch Marks) after it had been, rather unnecessarily, serviced at the local Wempe. Since then, the watch has remained in the back of my mind and while I haven’t purchased one, a very good friend wears today’s piece frequently enough to remind me of its classic looks. Aesthetically, I find this Rolex to be timeless and gorgeous. It has classy, elegant air looks that seem suitable for the tennis court, a business meeting or any number of casual settings. I have fairly big wrists however easily get away with a 39mm watch. The dial has a silver, radiating finish paired with such simple, slender gold hands, indices and the Rolex crown. Small lume dots sit outside of each index and a simple minute track borders the dial itself.
Admitted, it is a watch with not a single complication, however it’s as well a watch that you will never get tired of and as written before, a high-quality watch that will keep its value over time as well. The 39mm diameter makes it a very interesting alternative to the 41mm Oysterdate models as well as to the smaller 36mm versions.
Let me begin by saying that I’m actually excited to show you guys my newest Panerai replica! As an genuine, the model was released sometime last year (2015) in not more than 99 pieces and in order to get your hands on one, you have to go to Florence, Italy, and pick it up personally (for about 20K). I’m sure you know the watch in question, I’m sure you’ve seen it by now and if not, I urge you to read this review.
The firm was founded in 1860 and managed to rise and become the official supplier of the Italian navy in 1990. One of their amazing vintage collections is the one called Radiomir and by the year 1938, they were supplying the whole navy with these great watches. The collection also comes with leather or alligator strap, a perfect addition to such stunning watches.
They also have a Historic Collection, which is one of the most amazing watches collections; if you get your hands on one of those, you will know what we mean. Apparently their masculine design combined with great durability and amazing mechanism made them the perfect watches for men who worked in the navy. The watches are stunningly crafted with a mechanism that is classic hand-wound and a great 56 hours power reserve.
You will make sure that you wear something completely special if you choose one of these fake watches; their design is also recognizable and everybody will know you are wearing a Panerai watch. Another nice collection from Panerai is the Manifattura line, which feature the in-house movements that were built by the brand. For example, the Luminor Submersible is an amazing diving watch as it is water resistant to 1000 meters and have amazing features such as a helium valve for decompression.
The Luminor watches are also remarkable, made with steel and titanium, meant to resist even the harshest conditions. It seems that these mechanisms are actually amazing as they give up to 10 days of power reserve, you can select whether to have your watch manually or self-wound and they come with great chronograph functions while maintaining a simple design, unlike other replica watches brands.
Just keep in mind that this Panerai replica watches are copy of an expensive and rare piece, thus as long as you don’t strut around with it, you’ll be just fine. And here’s the new video below, let me know how you like it!
Prior to the 1940s, rarely had wristwatch dials been entirely decorated with polychrome enamel, especially using the cloisonne technique. One can only speculate as to the reasons behind this, but one of the most likely was the quest for new and innovative men’s watches in the post-war years. Such artisanal dial decoration was a major risk for the watchmaker or artisan, because the right motif had to be selected to ensure commercial success.
Cloisonne enamel wristwatches made by eminent watchmakers like Patek Philippe, Cheap fake Rolex watches online and Vacheron Constantin command impressive prices at international watch auctions today, regularly fetching six figure sums. This propelled the watch into the realm of art, desirable enough to be collectibles that are sought after on the secondary market. By the time enamel-ling reached wristwatches in the 1940s, political events provided dial makers with renewed inspiration.
Named after the gold wires used to form the motif, cloison means “partition” in French, cloisonne was sometimes used to decorate dials of Art Deco miniature clocks of the early 1920s, but the first examples of cloisonne dial wristwatches begin to appear in the late 1940s. Most were produced in the years following the Second World War, when such watches enjoyed a new lease of life. The revolutionary nature of this phenomenon lay in the evolution of how enamelling was regarded: from a decorative operation that was secondary to the timepiece itself, to an art that transformed the watch dial into a crucial aesthetic element of the watch. Enamelled dials formed a trend that lasted for about 20 years until the 1960s, albeit in tiny numbers. The reverse of the chimera cloisonne dial with the star logo of dial maker Stern Freres. Photo courtesy Phillips Watches. Practically all of the enamel dial wristwatches of that era were decorated with the cloisonne technique. Production was limited by the scarcity of specialised artisans; consequently the number of such watches manufactured by all replica watches brands amounted to only a few hundred wristwatches. Many watch manufacturers choose to capture historical events on cheap replica Rolex watches enamel dials.
The novelty of such enamelled wristwatches lay in the variety of subjects depicted on the dial, as well as the artisan’s mastery of enamel. During this period, most cloisonne enamel dials were painted by a handful of artisans, such as Carlo Poluzzi, Marguerite Koch or Nelly Richard. This partly explains repetitions in terms of subjects as well as style and colour similarities. A cheap replica Rolex ref. 8651 with cloisonne dial depicting a chimera, made by Marguerite Koch. Sold for SFr569,000 in May 2016.
One of best-known makers of enamel dials was Stern Frères, which produced the dials for some of the most valuable enamelled wristwatches ever sold. Founded by the same family that now owns replica Patek Philippe, the firm started making cloisonne enamel wristwatch dials at the end of the 1940s, but it was not alone. Needless to say, none of these works bears any trace of a signature or visible initials of the artist, though they were usually signed by the dial manufacturer. Beyeler was notable as well, mainly for the dials it made for Rolex and Vacheron Constantin; the Geneva-based company was acquired by best luxury replica Rolex watches in the late 1990s. Cartographical maps were a popular decoration on 19th century pocket watches, often depicting maps of France or Italy on the case-back, painted using the champleve enamel technique.
While some watch manufacturers had exclusive rights to specific subjects, but the vast majority of enamel dials featured common motifs such as caravels, dragoons, lighthouses and geographical maps.
One particularly striking example is the map of a newly independent India in 1947, a motif developed by Universal Genève. Famous watch manufacturers such as Breguet or Vacheron Constantin presented pocket watches of rare and exceptional quality. And the map of Saudi Arabia was also frequently featured on Universal, Eska or Longines watches – likely to honour the memory of King Ibn Saud, the first king of Saudi Arabia who passed away in 1953.
Collecting enamelled wristwatches
So it is unsurprising cloisonne enamel timepieces did not encounter the anticipated success when they first entered the market, doubtless because of their avant-garde and somewhat extravagant appearance. Such motifs are ageless and can appeal to the widest audience, giving them greater long-term collectible potential.
While the decoration on enamelled wristwatches is diverse, today’s collectors tend to gravitate towards the simpler and general subjects, like ships or animals, rather than those that are specific to an era or country. While many innovative models have not had the success their makers might have hoped for, with hindsight one recognises that this could give them a favorable rarity edge.
With the ever-increasing interest by watch aficionados in fine cloisonne enamel wristwatches, historian Ivan Ponzo offers a brief yet insightful analysis of their history and appeal.Failing to choose the right motif at the right moment could condemn a watch to languish in a display case. Aesthetic innovation is unfortunately not a promise of commercial success.There is consolation in the fact that vintage cloisonne enamel timepieces have been achieving fantastic results at auction in recent years, vindicating the enamel artisans of decades-ago.
The beautiful TAG Heuer Calibre 36 is one of those watches that rarely need a presentation. It has been on the market for a few years now and has been incredibly popular among those who love quality watches. Nevertheless, the brand is much older than we like to think, with more than 150 years of experience in watchmaking, so there’s no surprise why their replica watches are so loved and well made. This is a true example that TAG Heuer only goes forward when designing a new replica TAG Heuer watch and this beautiful collection of stainless steel and ceramic models is an incredible pick for anyone who can afford it.
Besides their watches being good looking behind TAG Heuer lays an abundant history of new technology in watch making, which led them to create some of the most precise watches. The TAG Heuer Caliber is one of those as it comes with a well-built automatic chronograph and is famed to be the world’s first chronograph that measures and indicates time to 1/10th of a second. In comparison to my other watches, it is light and sits flatly around the wrist which makes me extremely comfortable to put on. Besides, let’s not forget that the watch is homage to car engine design and this can be seen on its hands and dial. Nevertheless, don’t be fooled by the sporty elements, this watch is perfect for other occasions as well, because it incorporates all those elements in a beautiful timepiece.
For those looking to buy one of these replica watches, unless your salary is over average you might not have a great chance to get one. But there might be a chance to wear such a prestigious watch and most of the time you can find a replica. Here we have a replica of the TAG Heuer Caliber 36 and starting with the back of the watch to the sides we will analyze what makes the replica such a good pick.
On the back we have the markings that can also be found on the genuine, with the same style and font the writings: Grand Carrera, Replica TAG Heuer and Swiss made since 1860 give you the feel that the watch is genuine.
In one aspect, you would be attracted by its stunning watch dial since it has Grand Carrera elements that mimic the ones on the genuine to perfection. In another aspect, if you pay a close attention to it, you would find out that the sub dials are very nice as well and the location of these dials follow the tradition of watch making. Furthermore, in comparison with the genuine watch, our watch replica has the same accurate tachymeter markings located in the middle of the dial. Over the watch crown, there is a writing element on it identical with originals. The last but not least element that gives this replica watch its genuine feel is the crown, which definitely looks like the genuine to the smallest detail.
People who like patek philippe replica watches will know “grenade” of patek philippe, then today we together appreciate the patek philippe aquanaut series 5167 a – 001 wrist watch, to learn about this “grenade” together.
Switzerland, the kingdom of the watch and clock, and the world’s best watches are made in
Switzerland, therefore, a watch made in Switzerland is also a sign of a kind of quality and quality. 5167 a – 001 USES a patek philippe 324 C automatic mechanical movement. And the movement is 27 mm in diameter, with the thickness of 3.3 mm, vibration frequency of 4 hz, and it has the entirely 29 gem with 213 parts. At present in the world market sales there are so many Swiss mechanical watch brands, may be a lot people have no idea on which watch brand is good. Today, let me introduce you the most famous watch brand in Swiss and one of its most hot sale products.
Except the watch case back is see-through design and you will have beautiful panoramic view of the movement. The watch movement grinding is very delicate, you can clearly see the burnishing delicate Geneva texture and golden autopilot through the transparent case back. And on the patek philippe movement there has the exclusive “patek philippe mark”, representing the excellent performance of this replica patek philippe aquanaut 5167.
The only extra function of the watch is located at the watch dial. The position of number three has been replaced by the display window of the date. Although this might be quite different from others, the whole design of the watch is still stunning and harmonious.
As a matter of fact, the only reference to the anniversary is found on the case back of the Ref 3718, which is embossed with a golden medallion that reads “Patek Philippe 1839-1989″ and features the “Calatrava” cross. Nevertheless, this classic little beauty was never destined for Western consumers, but rather was made specifically for the Japanese market to celebrate Patek’s 150th birthday.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Ref 3718 is that it is rather small, 33mm small as a matter of fact,, which even for 1989 will be considered undersized, at least in the Western world.
What I really like though is that there is no obvious indication that is a limited edition, commemorative Replica Patek Philippe Watches. Therefore it seemed only logical then that when it came time to mark the occasion of the brand’s 150th birthday, Japan should figure in some way in the celebrations. Although it’s difficult to see in the photos the dial is actually an off-white enamel with applied white gold “baton” markers and white gold “baton” hands. Totally 500 pieces of the Ref 3718 were made in steel, each powered by the manually-wound, Geneva Seal hallmarked calibre 215. As you may see the design is very simple and elegant. The two-body case has been polished and brushed and features a stepped bezel with a domed sapphire crystal. Completing the look is a subsidiary second dial at 6 o’clock. Some watches tend to stand out through brand name, others through durability and others through an out of this world design.
At that time Japan was one of the most powerful economies in the world, creating huge amounts of wealth for its citizens. Not surprisingly the country was a very important market for Patek Philippe Replica Watches, much as China has become for many other brands in the present day.
Although it has only been two month away, as for the Swiss watch industry, 2015 is shaping up to be annus horribilis. Furthermore, in the age of this uncertain economic time, the whole industry might look up to the top firms to see on earth which road they will take. The shortest telling of this story is that Replica Patek Philippe are choosing the low road, to lower pricing.
On 15th of January 2015, merely few days before the opening of the important SIHH the Swiss replica watch industry was dealt a very nasty blow. All out of a sudden that the Swiss National Bank claimed that it was abandoning its long-standing currency cap against the Euro. The instant consequence was that the Swiss Franc had an unexpected 30% increase overnight.
This is the largest single currency market movement in 24 hours, ever. For more on the effect of this we recommend reading some specialist financial (completely distinct from watch specialist) analysis.
Except from generalized chaos on the Swiss stock markets this move has big implications on the export heavy Swiss watch industry. Share price tags for dominant players Richemont and the Swatch Group suffered, and Nick Hayek, CEO of the Swatch group portrayed it as a tsunami for the nation’s economy.
Several brands are choosing to increase prices to keep profit margins, which just made your dream watch about 10-15% less affordable.
In the wake of this trembling we’re starting to see how the distinct brands are dealing with the ramifications of this new financial order.
Or did it?
Patek Philippe replica watches have bucked this trend, plummeting the prices across most of their range, except for the ultra-high end collections, by 7% in the US and Hong Kong, 5% in Switzerland and 3% in the Asia Pacific (Australia is included). If you are a loyal fan of Patek Philippe (and you’re not reading this in mainland Europe or Tokyo- where price tag have augmented), you are very lucky.

Before this, we have composed several articles about the stealth wealth replica watches, which state some ideas we hold for different kinds of the replica watch models. Here, when we put together our previous article on stealth wealth replica watch pieces, we knew there was a strong possibility that searching for the Geneva replica watch fairs would yield more such sober fruit. One might hold that after the trimuph of surpassing that brougt out the world’s luxury conglomerates, the time is right for a little introspection and sobriety. However, the industry is not simply eschewing bubbly champagne for prosaic soda pops. In another way, it has not given up on innovation to just make round replica watches.
There was discussion at the fairs of a reborn to more classical models, with some brand executives expressing that anything other than a round timepiece would be a tough sell. However, brands that have never created a round timepiece dispute this, with MB&F being a case in point. Max Busser, the boss of MB&F, told us that his replica watch models continue to sell and have even caught interest from markets that he has not presently expected.
As it known to most of the replica watch lovers, round replica watch models can be extremely ubiquitious, a good example of this is richard Mille presented with the rM025. Knowing this, we display five novel stealth replica watch pieces and what that surprising for these five models is that they are not round.
