The two-day Tag Heuer best replica watches UK Collectors Summit was held this past Monday, September 12th, 2016, at TAG Heuer’s headquarters in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland. It was the second edition of a similar summit held in 2013, with the idea to invite a handful of collectors to exchange ideas, experiences, and above all, share their pre-1985 beauties. Only this time, the enthusiastic collectors were joined by members of the press. Why? Well, you might have noticed that under Jean-Claude Biver’s leadership the TAG Heuer brand is changing. One arm of the historic watchmaker will be positioned in the past with a continued focus on heritage models, and the other will be duly focused on today with a focus on modern culture. In other words, the brand intends on serving its existing fans while at the same time attracting new ones.

The summit included a visit to the manufacture in La Chaux de Fonds, the case factory in Cornol, and the movement factory in Chevenez. During our tour of the main manufacture, we saw the different stages of watch assembly, which are becoming more and more mechanized (efficient). In this particular segment of watchmaking, I personally don’t miss the “manual labor” aspect, nor do I consider automation as a “B category” of “real” watchmaking. Quite the contrary, in fact: the more industrialized the process, the cheaper it is to build, and the more precise are the final products. In other words, when done well, it means higher quality with higher volume. The outcome is cheaper prices and a better perception on behalf of the end client. That goal is very doable, in my opinion.

For me, the most interesting part of the waterproof Tag Heuer fake watches Summit was touring the restoration room where the director explained the different procedures used to restore antique pieces. I saw a beautiful Mikrograph ready to be restored and even tried on a Skipper watch that belonged to the director. The most striking object in the room, however, was a safe packed with thousands of dials from discontinued models, guaranteeing restoration for years to come.
Longines has added a new dive watch to Longines replica Heritage series watches UK, and this time, it’s a chronograph. The new Longines Heritage Diver 1967 is a great-looking vintage-inspired piece that, as is all the rage these days, draws inspiration from a past Longines model. With classic good looks, strong proportions and an enthusiast-approved movement, the Longines Heritage Diver 1967 manages to standout in the crowd at Baselworld 2015.

The Longines Heritage Diver 1967 is based on a design from Longines’ back catalog that dates back to 1967 (duh). This new chronograph carries many similar traits from the original, from the black opaline dial to the tachymeter scale and lop-sided “squinty” sub dial layout (where the three o’clock sub dial is considerably larger than the nine o’clock sub dial). As part of the collection at Longines’ museum in Saint-Imier, the original is an excellent point of reference when the goal is to make a new watch with a vintage appeal.
The Longines Heritage Diver 1967 limited edition series fake watches have a 42mm-wide steel case with a bordeaux aluminum bezel which has not only a dive time scale, but also a 12-hour scale that allows for a fast and easy view of another timezone. To use a 12-hour bezel you simply rotate the bezel so that the hour differential (the number of hours between the timezone currently showing on your watch and the timezone you wish to track) is at 12 o’clock. You can now read the 2nd timezone hour using the bezel scale.

My home is in PST, so if I wanted to know the time in Basel I would rotate the bezel to place “8” at 12 o’clock on the dial. It’s a deceptively simple and very powerful feature that can, depending on the timezone, challenge the practicality of any independent 24 hour hand, but at a fraction of the cost.
The dial is a mix of opaline black with cream sub dials and accents. There is also a subtle red cross emanating from the center of the dial and a date display at 4:30. Legibility of the time display is generally good, but in some lighting, the polished main time hands can disappear against the black backdrop of the dial, despite their inclusion of a luminous segment on each hand. Being polished, all one would need to do is slightly rotate their wrist to catch some available light and reveal the hands.
The watches of independent watchmaker Franck Muller best replica watches UK are instantly recognisable. A modern take on deco elegance, the large ‘curvex’ cases and stylised Arabic numerals have become the brand’s signature, continually reinterpreted with a healthy dose of colour. This latest release, the Blue Dream, is no exception. But rather than using details like the hands and numerals to provide the colourful highlights, Franck Muller has given the large curved tonneau case – a shape called the Cintrée Curvex – a blue PVD treatment and added a brushed satin dial in a matching hue. And just in case the blue wasn’t enough? It’s accentuated with white dial printing and an alligator strap.

Make no mistake: this is a large watch and a bold statement, with a case almost 40mm diameter Franck Muller replica watch and 55.4mm long, on a bright white band. Even so, it’s definitely suited for regular use. Thanks to the curved stainless steel case, it’s surprisingly comfortable on the wrist for its size, and the sapphire crystal that follows those curves looks amazing in profile. Granted, the white won’t be for all tastes, but if you’d rather blend in than stand out, it could easily be toned down with a different strap.

With its strong lines and big curves, it’s a perfect match for another Franck Muller Blue Dream cheap fake watches UK – Ettore Bugatti’s 1937 airplane that coincidentally shares the same name. The only plane the legendary carmaker ever designed, it shares not only the moniker of Franck Muller’s timepiece, but also its masculine grace and distinctive style. We’ll take one of each for Christmas, thanks.
