replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph 25th Anniversary watch

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph 2017

The new project SIHH 2017 design has a return to the aesthetics, which won the chronograph Royal Oak fans all army.

In 2017, Audemars Piguet celebrated several dates related to the cult model Royal Oak. First, the clock started the legendary Gerald Giant Tower, setting the 40th anniversary from the first version of the precious metal. Second, the Royal Oak Chronograph and Three Counters were born in 2017 marked "20".


For twenty years, the model Royal Oak Timing has survived more than one transformation (in the end we were able to observe in 2012). As for the 2017 version of the sample, Turntable, which adds visual contrast and returns to aesthetics, its Chronograph Royal Oak owes much of its army of massive fans to design.

The return of fashion is particularly noticeable in the design of chronograph timepieces, and chronograph counters have been added to improve readability. The size of the small seconds counter does not change, but missing the Arabic numerals in the tag. The increase of the minute counter led to a slight shift of the date window to the 5-hour mark.Richard Mille RM 011 Le Mans Classic replica Watch

Hour markers are getting wider, probably due to the popularity of the Royal Oak Offshore Diver model. Like enlarged counters, the enlarged hour markers improve readability and create a more dynamic clock image.

Like the previous Royal Oak Chronograph, the model's body (shown in the photo in the photo) has a diameter of 41 mm and conceals the 2385 chronograph (chronograph with a cylindrical wheel). Edward's exemplary performance - a complex eight-step process that includes many hours of milling, polishing, blasting, glazing, and other finishing work.

The dial on the dial is still decorated with "Waffle" pattern "Grand Tapisserie", using the pantograph used in the beginning of this century.

There are several versions of this model. The steel case (cost $ 24,300) can have a black, blue or silver dial (see photo) and be completed with a bracelet. For those who consider the Royal Oak Chronograph to look the best on a precious metal case, the Audemars Piguet offers watches from solid pink gold with brown or blue dials and leather straps.

TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition watch

 Any watch brand hopes to have a real "iconic" chronograph in its product lineup, but TAG Heuer can be said to have a pair, of which there is the famous square Monaco. 1969 (Heuer Edition) Heuer introduced Monaco, it was the first Swiss square chronograph waterproof. Now that they have revealed a special edition of the TAG Heuer Monaco Bay, they have especially reviewed the role of Steve McQueen in making Monaco famous.

Hoya Monaco appeared on the wrist of Steve McQueen in the 1971 film Le Mans. In the same movie, McQueen's role was sponsored by Gulf Oil and you will find blue and orange stripes hanging on his white clothes, just like the famous picture above. So TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition inspired not only by TAG Heuer Monaco, but also Steve McQueen and his Le Mans character. TAG Heuer said this is also the 50th anniversary of the Gulf Racing Streak and its contribution to Zenith replica watches

In essence, the Touraine Monaco Gulf Special Edition remains the same. For example, the crown is still on the left side of the case, with a hemispherical sapphire crystal, a blue dial with a sunshine-painted surface. It uses the TAG Heuer Caliber 11 movement, very similar to the movement of modern Monaco, using modern production technology and tolerances. Caliber 11 provides 40 hours of power reserve and beats at 4Hz. This is a time-tested and reliable movement, very similar to the 1861 Caliber Caliber movement, it has an indelible link with Toya Monaco.

The diameter of the steel case is 39 mm, but the square means that it is wearing much larger than you would expect. The bezel and case have alternate frosted and polished finishes to provide some visual interest. Unlike the original Monaco, Gulf special salesman is square, I think it is more in line with the watch's aesthetics. As mentioned earlier, this watch has a highly arched and beveled sapphire crystal glass. This is one of the symbols of Monaco in 1969 and is a sign of helping to keep it waterproof. When it comes to water resistance, the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition display (TAG Heuer does not currently have an image) is rated at 100 meters.replica TAG HEUER MONACO CALIBRE 11 GULF watch

Although this movement and case is similar to many of the Monaco redistribution and special editions we have seen before, this version is a highlight of this version. The bottom of the dial is the original dark blue, with the sunshine pen on the original TAG Heuer Monaco. Gulf stripes are then applied to the right half of the dial. Given how gulf stripes are applied to cars and paint, I think this may prove to be a love-hate design element that requires symmetrical collectors to center the stripes.

The two stopwatches are again square, silver-white at 3:00 and 9:00 seconds. Silver milky makes the dial and black baton in stark contrast, legible. The main hand and hour markers are rhodium-plated and fill in Super LumiNova. Chronograph second hand there is no luminous material, but the red paint, it is suitable. Finally, there is a date wheel at 6 o'clock, just above the bay marker. Other brand logos, as well as general text supplements, can be found here, just like any other TAG Heuer Monaco watch. The element of the dial that I least like is probably the rhodium mark applied outside the loop. These silver level indicators start at the top and bottom of the dial and shorten when they reach the center. However, this is consistent with the original design, collectors may realize that the watch has been its root cause.

The TAG Heuer Monaco Bay Special Edition may appeal to fans who love Monaco collectors, motorsport enthusiasts or Gulf cones, or sentimental Steve McQueen fans of the 1970s. TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition is not limited by the number of watches produced.wholesale replica HUBLOT MP watches
