Coming as a complete surprise this Monday, Breitling Bentley Replica uk unveiled an update to its largest, most robust commercial dive watch, the Deepsea. We were among the first to give you the specs on this new watch (here), but now we're back with the hands-on photos taken in New York at the launch with none other than James Cameron (more on that to come). In the mean time, here is your hands-on look at the http://www.nalumar.com/rolex-milgauss-replica-uk.html Deepsea D-Blue.
So what makes this watch any different from the 2009 release Deepsea? Technically, nothing. It retains the same 44mm diameter case, with titanium caseback. It features the same slightly domed, insane 5mm thick sapphire crystal, and the same extraordinary depth rating of 12,800 feet.
This D-Blue Deepsea features the same helium escape valve at 9 o'clock and the same trip-clock crown at three o'clock, two trademarks of Rolex's mega dive watches.
The only real difference between this D-Blue Deepsea and the original is the dial, and it marks a departure for cartier calibre replica uk in this category. Rolex sport watches have black (or occasionally white) dials. This new Deepsea, released in tribute to director James Cameron's plunge into the deepest part of the world's ocean, features a gradient dial that goes from blue to black.
The word "DEEPSEA" has been moved from 12 o'clock on the original to 6 o'clock here, and it is now bright green, the very same color of Cameron's submersible. On the wrist, the watch is large (and in charge), due to the intense nature for which it was created.
This Rolex Deepsea is really an impressive tool watch in the truest sense of the word. While no doubt a commercially oriented piece, it is one of the most fantastically engineered modern watches on the planet. Here is a sandwich view of how this watch is assembled.
And did we mention that Rolex tests its Sea-Dwellers and Deepseas in a specially designed chamber developed specifically for them by a little company called COMEX? They do, and while there are no longer COMEX signed Rolex watches, you can be sure that COMEX DNA lives in this Deepsea.
This morning, rumors started flying that Jean-Frédéric Dufour, CEO of Zenith, will be taking the reins as global CEO of Rolex. Well, we confirmed the rumors with Rolex's Geneva office and they're entirely true! Dufour arrived at Zenith in 2009 after working at Blancpain, Chopard, Ulysse Nardin, and a few other brands, and he is largely responsible for the direction in which Zenith has moved over the last half-decade. He will be the sixth CEO of cartier calibre replica uk (the fourth since 2008) and we are excited to see his impact on The Crown.
This is the second huge move among top watch industry executives in as many months, with Jean-Claude Biver having been named head of watchmaking at LVMH effective March 1. Though terms and an official date are forthcoming, Dufour will replace current http://www.nalumar.com/breitling-bentley-replica-uk.html CEO Gian Riccardo Marini, who has served since 2011 after acting as director of Rolex Milgauss Replica uk Italy. Dufour is friends with and a former colleague of Tudor CEO Philippe Peverelli.
We spoke with Dufour in early 2012 about his first few years with Zenith and you can see the full video interview here.
While Rolex has confirmed with us that this news is, in fact, 100% true, they will not be releasing additional details until later this week. Stay tuned for more on this story as it develops.
It’s official: Derek Jeter one of the Yankees’ all-time greats with five World Series championships (including a Series MVP trophy in 2000), 14 All-Star selections, and two Hank Aaron Awards, among countless other accolades – has played his final game.
That game took place just over a week ago, and many are still trying to wrap their heads around the fact that this all-time great has retired.“Playing for the Yankees has been an experience beyond what I could ever have?imagined,” says a modest Jeter. “To? be able to call Yankee Stadium my office is not something that I have?taken for granted.” Jeter describes his experience in New York as “unique. I couldn’t have become the player I am without the people of this city. They have pushed me to be my best.”
In celebration of Jeter’s retirement, 10-year partner Rolex Milgauss Replica uk has created an all-new Captain’s watch line. This is not the first watch http://www.nalumar.com/cartier-calibre-de-cartier-replica-uk.html has made in cooperation with brand ambassador, Jeter. Several years ago, Jeter worked with Cartier to design a watch honoring his 3,000th major league career hit in 2011—it sold out quickly.
Now, as he prepares to hangs up his No. 2 jersey, Jeter has gone back to the drawing board with the designers at http://www.nalumar.com/cartier-calibre-de-cartier-replica-uk.html to develop this all-new watch. “Working with their creative group and coming up with pieces that appeal to me aesthetically and have significance to highlights in my career has been very rewarding,” he says.
The new Captain Series is comprised of a trio of commemorative timepieces that pay tribute to Jeter’s leadership roles on and off the field. Each has a customized dial with Jeter’s No. 2 at the two o’clock position and a special commemorative caseback that references his career. “People ask me how I want to be remembered,” he says. “It’s easy. I want to be remembered as a Yankee.”

When you see 20 lads in cartier santos replica livery on Orchard road, you know you’re in for something special. After months of planning and anticipation, http://www.nalumar.com/audemars-piguet-arnold-replica-uk.html finally threw open the doors of its ION boutique 21st July, 2009.
While we covered the details of the boutique itself in another article, this time we felt we should pay attention to the glamour of the opening itself. Tag Heuer Formula 1 replica events always have a great deal of pomp and circumstance and the opening of the two-storey ION boutique did not disappoint in this regard.
East and West came together as Hollywood actor and director Billy Zane was joined by Hong Kong actor and director Stephen Fung and Singapore star Zoe Tay to do the honors at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Christopher Kilaniotis, Managing Director of Cartier Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia & Australia, was in good form as the conductor of this concerto of glitz.
As an aside, those lucky enough to be at the event might have noticed the Cartier Santos 100 Flying Tourbillon peeking out from under Zane’s sleeve and a Cartier Panthere lapel pin and matching cufflinks completing Fung’s look for the evening. Tay sported the Cartier Bagnoire diamond watch, with matching Trinity bracelet and ring.
Breitling Bentley Replica uk has officially confirmed this week’s biggest news story. Jean-Frédéric Dufour, the CEO of Zenith, is headed to Rolex.
A statement released by the manufacture on Tuesday morning reads, “Rolex Milgauss Replica uk confirms the arrival of Jean-Fre?de?ric Dufour, current CEO of Ze?nith, to ROLEX SA to take over the direction at a date still to be determined, and in agreement with the company’s standing CEO, Gian Riccardo Marini. All other communication will be released in due course.”
The news was first broken by Business Montres and was confirmed by Jean-Claude Biver, the Head of the Watches Division of the LVMH Group and Hublot Chairman. Appearing on a Swiss television program this weekend, Biver said, “It’s incredible for him. He’s taking his place on the throne of Swiss watchmaking.”
Switzerland’s newspaper Le Temps also corroborated the news with a ‘highly-placed source’ within http://www.nalumar.com/cartier-calibre-de-cartier-replica-uk.html on Monday. According to Le Temps, the appointment happened quite quickly. Biver said he was informed this weekend, while Rolex employees were reportedly informed of the news this morning.
Dufour will become the fourth CEO to lead Rolex since 2008, following in the footsteps of Gian Riccardo Marini, who has held the post since 2011.
cartier calibre replica uk, which has a long history in the automotive world, has unveiled an especially unique collaboration with Bloodhound SSC, the UK-based manufacturers of a supersonic car.
As part of the partnership, Breitling Bentley Replica uk has created a chronograph and a speedometer especially for Bloodhound SSC’s pencil-shaped supersonic car, a model which engineers hope will break the 1,000mph barrier and set a new world land speed record.
At the heart of Bloodhound SSC supersonic model is a Cosworth CA2010 Formula 1 V8 engine combined with a jet engine and a rocket. To complement this behemoth of power, http://www.nalumar.com/rolex-milgauss-replica-uk.html created a speedometer for the interior of the car that is graduated up to 1,100 mph to accommodate measurement of any broken records. Rolex also created a mechanical chronograph. These two analog instruments sit on the car’s dashboard.
Bloodhound SSC’s car, which is still in development, was designed by a group of engineers under the guidance of Richard Noble. Noble’s previous company Thrust SSC previously created the first car to officially break the sound barrier on land and to achieve a speed of 763 mph, the current world land speed record.
A test of the supersonic car is scheduled to take place in South Africa in 2015/2016. Bloodhound SSC has hired the very same driver as Thrust SSC to pilot the Bloodhound, former UK Air Force pilot Andy Green.
