Thus, being able to offer a durable, high-quality case coloring process should be very useful to some people. The desire to customize watches is increasing, and I am happy to see that the colors available for metal case coating are increasing. http://www.hhibt.com/aaa-breitling-chronomat-44-ib011012-b968-tt-wristwatch-5i2b.html isn't able to offer all the colors of the rainbow, but much more than just black is available.
Specifically, Rolex Submariner Automatic with Green coats are available in the following colors: black, blue, green, aubergine (eggplant purple), steel (color), bronze (color), and gold (color). According to Rau-Tech, they are working on additional colors, but this is a pretty good start. With these colors, the savvy customizer now has an entire new world of options to make Rolex and other high-end watches look interesting or completely weird.
What is the Rolex Daytona Automatic Two Tone with White coating process? Well, the coatings are a form of PVD (physical vapor deposition) and are blasted to the surface of watches in a special chamber. They have to literally take apart the watches and coat each component individually - another element which adds considerably to the cost. Duramantan coated surfaces are said be about 2000 - 4000 vickers (HV) in hardness, which is much higher than steel. Thus, durability should be rather impressive, which means the color-coating is difficult to wear off.
Each of these watches by Rau-Tech can be purchased but is also an example of what they can do. Some of these designs are beautiful and some are rather ugly. The idea is to show off what Rau-Tech can do, and for the right customers, a custom Rolex is an awesome thing.
So how much does a custom Rolex or other watch from Rau-Tech cost? Each watch has a different price because the end cost is a result of the base watch plus the specific customization process. I can say that custom Rolex Submariner watches from Rau-Tech start at about 13,000 Euros and can go up to 20,000 Euros. Custom Rolex Daytona and GMT Master II models in gold cases cost about 33,000 - 36,000 Euros. Higher-end Rolex models in gold with diamonds, such as the Rolex Pearlmaster with Rau-Tech customization cost around 45,500 Euros. Each project is unique, which is exactly what Rau-Tech hopes to accomplish with the service. That is, to combine the appeal of popular watches such as Rolex, but to add an exclusive design element that the brand itself does not offer.
The fake IB011012/B968-TT replica watch industry is a $9 billion global industry and growing. Many people believe that purchasing a fake or replica watch (as they now prefer to be called) is a harmless pastime, and an easy way to cut an expensive corner so as to enjoy the real deal, but the fact is, most fake and replica watch sales can be traced back to organised crime and the proceeds go towards funding other criminal activities. Criminals do not need to rob banks when they can rob Rolex Submariner Automatic with Green watch companies of their intellectual property.
There are probably more fake Rolexes than there any other brand, and just about every model in the Rolex http://www.hhibt.com/discount-rolex-daytona-automatic-two-tone-with-white-dial-watches-8k2j.html collection has been obsessively copied. With careful observation you can still tell a fake from an original. Here for example are some key signs to look out for if and when someone offers you a cut price Rolex. A real Rolex is a top quality product, be suspicious if the following do not seem quite right.
Tips on spotting a fake Rolex
There are other pointers that can help you determine whether or not you have a real Rolex in your hand, and one of these is weight, if it feels light it is probably a fake, but bear in mind many replicas are weighed to achieve the exact same weight as the real thing. Take a look at the quality of the crown and the pushers if you buy a chronograph, these should be high quality machined and polished components which perform faultlessly time after time.
The Sapphire Crystal: Rolex watches are fitted with a sapphire crystal (the glass lens on the watch) that can only be scratched with a diamond, if the lens scratches easily, you know it’s not sapphire crystal.A Smooth Movement: Nowadays many fake Rolexes are fitted with reliable Chinese, Japanese and sometimes Swiss automatic hacking movements. Hacking is when the second hand will stop for you to set the exact time. In fact these work reliably and smoothly, so it will be difficult to detect any difference without having a watch dealer open up the case to check.The Bracelet: When you remove a genuine Rolex bracelet you will discover the watch’s case number and model number engraved on the side at 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock.
Remember Bernie Madoff? You better, because he was the engineer behind the the biggest ponzi scheme the world has ever known. We're talking $18 billion, 11 federal crimes, and 150 years in prison. To describe the man as nefarious would be an understatement.Madoff loved his IB011012/B968-TT replica watches, and he had a substantial collection that ranged from modern day crap to some pretty nice Pateks and AP's, to even a few vintage Rolex pieces. We showed you a Rolex Rolex Submariner Automatic with Green that made its way to eBay rather quickly after the initial government-run auction of his property, remember MalibuSurferDude was trying to make some money on that buy?
Well, now another http://www.hhibt.com/discount-rolex-daytona-automatic-two-tone-with-white-dial-watches-8k2j.html Rolex has surfaced, and this time it's a good one - a Red Submariner from 1971. The watch will come the receipt showing that it was purchased at federal auction from the Madoff collection, and the watch is even engraved "Bernie L Madoff" on the caseback (we enhanced one of the ebay images below so you could see it better).
The auction has over 6 days remaining and it is currently at just over $3,000. This is most certainly an interesting buy, and we'll be curious to see if someone really is willing to pay a premium for pugnacious provenance. Editor's Note: If you want to spend even more money on a Madoff watch, an early Rolex triple date chrono is currently being sold via US Marshall auction here, but it's already at $32,500 and you may want to examine this one closely (*cough* re-dial *cough*).
If you know Hodinkee, you know that we have a particular fondness for the Rolex Explorer. In fact, we have profiled quite a few over the past few years including:Today we add to that list with an Explorer commemorating the successful 2007 season of Associazione Calcio Milan (or A.C. Milan), which included winning the FIFA Club World Cup, the UEFA Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League. The watch features A.C. Milan’s white, red, and black badge printed on the dial near the 3 o’clock position. Only 150 of these watches were made and they feature a special engraving on the back showing the three trophies. The seller states that this particular one is new and includes the original 2008 box and warranty.
This is a rare chance to own the watch given to a championship footie team, and it happens to be a Rolex in "like new" condition.
Looking to combine something as practical as a two time zone watch with something as delicate and prestigious as a http://www.tmfworx.com/? Well, Swiss Chanel has the watch for you, with the lovely looking new Chanel J12 Chromatic. The watch also happens to feature the first J12-based movement offered by Chanel, and it contains dual hairsprings along with some other interesting features that I will discuss below. In short, Chanel presents a replica Chanel J12 Chromatic potentially capable of overcoming the accuracy issues inherent in many J12 watches. For those who understand J12s, this is a clear irony.
From a design perspective, the replica Chanel J12 very much fits into the larger Chanel collection when it comes to aesthetics and simplicity. Looking deeper, you see 1960s watch design as well as Bauhaus influence. In many ways, the design DNA of Chanel is one very successful way of marrying modern and traditional aesthetic considerations together.
The Chanel J12 Chromatic is meant to be a comfortable, capable watch that is both high-end and collectible, but also suitable for daily wear. What I most appreciate about watches of this ilk is that they really take into consideration practical things such as legibility, convenience, and utility when designing a $100,000 plus object. At 41.5mm wide and 14.3mm thick, the Chanel J12 Chromatic isn't small, but should wear comfortably and boldly. The dial design mixes simplicity with a dual-layer lower dial with a decorated plate and opening for the flying J12.
Chanel domes the dial a bit and offers three different versions of the Chanel J12 Chromatic dial each with a sunburst polishing job and a gradient. They called it a "fumé" style, which means smoked, and I can see that. The colors include ardoise, silver, or red-gold. These should look pretty neat in person and eschew some of the boredom of flat colored dials that can occur in similar dress-style watches.
I bow in praise of the fact that Chanel's first J12 movement is both an automatic and meant to be as accurate as possible. We are talking about the new in-house made caliber HMC 802, and it operates at 21,600 bph and has a power reserve of 3 days. As a travel watch, being an automatic makes sense, and the "dual time" complication consists of a second hour hand in red that quite simply can be used as a second 12 hour time zone indicator. The wearer can also "hide" the second time zone hand under the main hour hand to give the dial a cleaner look if they are not traveling.
The brand has moved to a new headquarters in Neuchatel, a space that accommodates administrative departments such as marketing, sales, and finance as well as the team of watchmakers Dominique is putting together.After a few bumps in the road in 2013 and fine-tuning the micro-fluid capillary module, Tag Heuer http://www.modserap.com/rolex-submariner-replica-australia-for-sale.html are now expecting to produce a total of 500 pieces by the end of the year - which is an impressive amount given the uniqueness of the watches. Having said that, Tag Heuer was fortunate to receive high praise from the start, upon the release of the Tag Heuer Carrera watch in 2012.To cater to the South-East Asian markets where the brand is really picking up, tag heuer carrera replica have set up a subsidiary in Singapore with its own service center.
After the press conference, hublot replica took us to their sister company Preciflex’s new production and R&D site just a few kilometers away, taking the fluidic capillary system to new heights and applications in both the context of Tag Heuer as well as future applications in the medical, automotive, and design sectors. That means a technology actually developed for a niche high-end watch might end up in other more commercial or industrial items and products.With a concept watch guru on board and a new production and research facility at its disposal, the future is looking bright for Tag Heuer - a fluorescent green kind of bright.
Coming in three case styles the Carrera will be available in titanium, DLC black coated titanium, and 18k red gold. The case will be 48.8mm wide and a pretty massive 17.9mm thick. Actually that is small considering it has bellows in it. Design-wise the case reminds me a lot of the Clerc Hydroscaph. It isn't a 1:1 clone by any means, but if you compare the two you will see obvious design influences. Then there is the rubber-coated crown and the crown protector. It looks a lot like the crown and crown protector layout on the Bremont Supermarine watch. Nothing wrong with that, it is just interesting to see where the Tag Heuer team gathered influence to make this otherwise very unique creation.
The Tag Heuer Carrera watch has been covered in media all over the world. What are some of the more interesting comments journalists or collector's have made in regard to the Tag Heuer concept or watches?Really difficult to answer because of the number of comments! For example, in just 3 days, last January when we posted the video introducing HYT, we had… 380,000 views on YouTube ! in just 3 days… We have seen how strong can be the impact with a real innovative product. Mixing liquids with mechanics has really stoked the attention worldwide.
We thought we would go back to our nautical theme of yesterday's Heuer Regatta post by finding another water-born watch. This time the http://www.tmfworx.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-chromatic-watches.html watch itself was not designed to be worn on the water, as we all know the Chanel J12 was the first watch up Mount Everest on the wrist of Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953. Chanel, however, has gone ahead and made the J12 a yachtsman's watch by giving them out as gifts to the winners of their ever so chic replica Chanel J12 Swan Cup Regatta.
The Chanel Swan Cup Regatta is hosted biennially at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Italy (looks nice, doesn't it?). It is one of the most social of the large regattas on the European circuit asreplica Chanel watches hosts both a hoity-toity owners dinner as well as a more ruckus (but still hoity-toity) crew party. There are four different classes of races, and the event lasts approximately 6 days.
The watch we have found for you today is a 1999 Chanel J12 (a favorite of ours) that is engraved on the back. It is engraved to read "Overall Chanel Swan European Regatta 2000". Yes, this Chanel was presented to the over all winner of the 2000 Chanel Swan cup, and apparently that person didn't want it anymore (or perhaps he was a Madoff client?) and has hawked it to our friends at Watches of Distinction.
The watch is in excellent condition and does come with the original Chanel box. This is certainly a great Chanel to consider if you love sailing, or if you've ever dreamed up entering the Swan Cup. It is being offered for a very reasonable 2495 GBP...only very slightly more than what you'd pay for an unengraved 1999 Chanel J12.
We called the very strange Omega Time Computer III possibly the nerdiest watch Omega ever made. Antiquorum had the estimates at $800-$1300. Turns out the market for vintage digital watch withes gold plated cases and stretchy bracelets isn't as strong as expected; it sold for $600.
The very cool and very rare Chanel Double Red J12 White retailed and signed by Cartier is a watch that received a lot of attention when we featured it. More than a few blogs picked up on that one. The pre-sale estimate was $25,000-$45,000. Antiquorum was a little off on this estimate too, in a good way. It sold for $91,200.
It is no secret that we have something of a penchant for vintage http://www.modserap.com/hublot-replica-australia-for-sale.html watches (can you blame us?), and those with some provenance of any kind get us even more excited. Steve McQueen's Submariner 5512 that sold at Antiquorum last year was amazing, and even this GMT bought by Patty Duke for her then husband in 1968 was pretty cool. Today we have something that we think a lot of people are going to be interested in; it's a vintage tag heuer carrera replica that was owned by a man respected and loved the world over, a man whose wrists (or rather the adjoining hands, really) are some of the most famous in the world, yes Slow Hand himself, Eric Clapton, OBE.
The rolex Submariner replica watch we've found for you is a great looking vintage Rolex from the 1950s. This 18k rose gold chronograph is a valuable watch without being owned by any rock legend (Mondani puts one in very good condition between $60,000-$74,000) so with Clapton's association, you're likely looking at a pretty sizable chunk of scratch to own a piece of Cream, the Yardbirds, and the 4th greatest guitar player of all time (according to Rolling Stone).
Obviously, this is a potentially once in a lifetime chance to get your hands on a watch of this caliber owned by a musician of this caliber. Click here for the details of this vintage Rolex chronograph, reference 6034, previously owned by Eric Clapton.Two outstanding vintage Rolex Submariners from two different auction houses are coming up for sale next week, and we felt it to be our duty to inform you of both your options in the rare and interesting Sub game. Let's get right into it.
Anyone a fan of Tony Gwynn or the San Diego Padres? To wear a watch like this, you're going to have to be. This watch is, of course, a Rolex Day-Date (aka President) given to Mr. Tony Gwynn in 1996 by the San Diego Padres organization.
The watch is in really excellent condition, and our guess is you're not going to find too many Rolex Presidents with an enormous PADRES logo on the dial too often. Also, in case you forget who owned this watch originally, the caseback is deeply engraved with "TONY GWYNN 1996".1996 was a meaningful year for Gwynn because it was then when he won his 7th (of 8 total) National League Batting titles. Gwynn had a historic career, also winning 5 Gold Gloves, and being selected to the All-Star team 15 times. This Rolex President, the former property of Tony Gwynn, is for sale in Carmel California for $20,000. It is being sold my our friends at Fourtané, the same people who were gracious enough to let us borrow a 6-figure Rolex Daytona Paul Newman for our Mercedes SLS Video.

Having said that, what possibly is the nicest modification with this particular piece is the series of "steps" above and below the http://www.tmfworx.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-watches.html. It is a design element that I feel should have been included in the original piece as well–and that is perhaps what best defines what a true improvement is. It highlights the tourbillon in a tasteful way that I find to be impressive both artistically and architecturally. To top it all off, the tourbillon stands on a sapphire bridge, making it appear as if it was suspended in the air.
The replica Chanel J12 Chromatic is made available in yet another configuration, with what I would call a "deep sky" colored dial. The material used here is called paillonné enamel and it has been used for the dial, the bezel and even for some parts of the case itself. Enameling is an art all to itself, with dozens of various procedures that ultimately result in greatly different aesthetics. To create great enamel, one has to combine all the different techniques together in the right order and performed with great perfection, otherwise the dial can be ruined even at the very last step in the process of making it.
With paillonné the blue enamel is enriched with tiny motifs or chips of silver which thereplica Chanel watches "shaved" from a block of silver. The particles are called paillons, and are added to the enamel when it is still liquid. Once the enameled components are past their 800 degree Celsius cooking, the tiny silver particles are to be revealed and brought to the surface. To do this, the dial has to be polished in a way that removes just enough material to better highlight the tiny silver particles, while not damaging the thin layer of enamel. How it is achieved on the surfaces of the curved and stacked "steps" leading to the tourbillon is something I would love to see in person!
Finally, the case on its sides and in between the lugs, as well as the bezel are all engraved and pierced to create a pattern which is then filled up with matching blue enamel. The result is a Duometre á J12 which is all covered in beautiful blue enamel, and as such, which should always be handled with excessive care for the fragility of the material.
The J12 proved to be the go-to complication in the Chanel J12 collection, as this is the third – and last – piece equipped with it. This time around it is a piece not be worn on the wrist but rather in one's pocket, and the "issue" this creates is perhaps not even obvious at first. The entire Chanel J12 collection is about blending less obvious, or rather, less often exposed in-house abilities with some of the trademark models of the brand.
replica Chanel watches add a new and highly useful model to their portfolio, the Chanel J12 White.Is it me or are wristwatches getting even more useful? You may remember the ingenious hand-wind “Génie” wristwatch unveiled by Breva which combined timekeeping abilities with Chromatic functionality. Now Chanel have created a similar device, still powered by mechanics and not micro-chip, and – they have even managed to slip in some kinetic winding, making their Chromatic the first automatic mechanical Chromatic wristwatch.
The replica Chanel J12 has two crowns on its case side. The crown at 2 o’clock is for time and date adjustments. The second crown, located at 4 o’clock operates the Chromatic function. By unscrewing the crown to “Position 1” air is allowed into the case to enable the system to be calibrated. By pulling out the crown to “Position 2” the current height can be set. Once calibrated, the current altitude is displayed via the yellow indicator, and the corresponding air pressure via the red indication. By now you may have noticed the scale at the dial edge which displays the altitude, measured up to 15,000 feet or 4,500 meters, and the smaller scale just towards the inner dial which displays air pressure, both provide easy to read indications at a glance, and both give this new model a very professional appearance.
In designing the Chromatic, http://www.tmfworx.com/top-replica-chanel-j12-chromatic-watches.html have thought of every detail. When the crown has been pulled out to allow operation of the system, a red ring around the crown base alerts the wearer that the waterproof capabilities of the case has been compromised; during operation, a PTFE vapour barrier prevents moisture from entering into the case – and, no matter which type of measurement you prefer, feet or meters, Chanel have even thought of that too and will release two models, one with the scale in feet, one in meters.
All Chanel watches are distinguishable by a no-frills approach to design and the Chromatic maintains a clean readable dial despite its compendium of unusual indications. The white Arabic numerals which are painted onto the black dial have been given a liberal coating of Super-LumiNova to ensure clarity after dark and although the vivid yellow and red dial accents are functional, they do give a superb contrast to the dial arrangement. The stainless steel case measures 47mm across and features a coin-edge bezel. Water resistance is to 100m. Inside, the Chanel automatic mechanical Cal. 733, based on a Sellita SW200 movement provides a power reserve of up to 38 hours.
Earlier this year Chanel sent forth a confident statement of intent to the industry when they presented their first White movement in 35 years. The addition of the J12 White model to their superb portfolio, which adds automatic winding to this new genre, must surely be the icing on the cake for what has already been a momentous year thus far for Chanel.
