Time Chimers: 4 Notable Minute Repeaters from SIHH 2015

It is not uncommon during the SIHH watch fair to hear the popping of Champagne corks and the clinking of glasses in the luxuriously appointed halls of Geneva’s Palexpo. This year, guests also heard the pleasant chiming of several new minute repeater Breitling replica watches uk from the exhibiting luxury watch brands. Here are four repeater watches from SIHH 2015 that caught our eye — and ear.

The A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater is the first Lange cheap Breitling replica watches to combine  jumping time displays for the hours and minutes with a 10-minute interval repeater. The simple, legible dial belies the complexities of the movement and its chiming mechanism.  Since the time can be read quickly (jumping hours are displayed in a window at 9 o’clock, minutes are on two discs of different heights at 3 o’clock, and small seconds at the bottom of the dial), the wearer can then turn his attention down to the bottom of the dial, where the two black-polished steel hammers for the minute repeater are readily visible on either side of the seconds subdial. When the pusher at 10 o’clock is pressed, the hammers strike the gong encircling the dial. The hours hammer, with a lower pitch, is on the left side; the higher-pitched minutes hammer is on the right. Ten-minute intervals are signaled via a “double tone”: the higher pitch is hit with the lower one immediately following. The maximum duration it takes to strike out the time (at 12:59) is approximately 20 seconds. For more detail on the Lange Zeitwerk Minute Repeater, click here.

To develop its prototype Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept RD#1, the luxury watch brand from Le Brassus partnered with the École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), a Swiss organization dedicated to the study of acoustics. The result of their intensive sound research program is, according to AP, “the first chiming watch so acoustically considered as to become a sound concept in its own right.” By applying the principles of stringed instrument making to the development of the watch’s chiming mechanism, the brand has created a repeater Swiss replica watches with a significantly enhanced sound transmission. The movement features a brand-new, almost silent striking mechanism regulator, along with a column-wheel chronograph and a tourbillon.For more on this year’s Royal Oak Concept, click here.

While not truly a “grand complication” in the strictest sense of the term (it lacks, for example, a chronograph function), the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Grand Complication was nevertheless regarded as one of the most impressive debuts at this year’s SIHH. This is in part because of its astounding thinness (the 45-mm platinum case case is just 12.6 mm thick, while the skeletonized movement, Cartier Caliber 9406 MC, is a mere 5.49 mm thick) and also because of its incorporation of several major haute horlogerie functions, which include a flying tourbillon and perpetual calendar in addition to a minute repeater. The bottom of the dial showcases the minute repeater, which is equipped with an inertia-free fly wheel, with its hammers and gongs on display thanks to the openwork of the movement.

Jaeger-LeCoultre has created many minute repeater watches over its long history, but this year the grande maison from Le Sentier rolled out its first repeater in a ladies’ collection, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater, a timepiece that is striking in more ways than one. The replica Breitling watches sale gets its name from the ivy motif on the white gold, blue-enamelled dial, which features diamonds in a snow setting on the curling ivy leaves — symbolizing, JLC says, the evening of winter’s first frost in the Vallée de Joux. The bezel, lugs, caseband, crown, and push-piece are also diamond-set, making for a total of 548 diamonds, including 255 on the dial. Inside the 39-mm case is the new automatic Caliber 942A, whose innovative repeater mechanism is fitted with two patented trebuchet hammers that strike two crystal gongs connected to the sapphire crystal. The mechanism is also equipped with a silent regulator to reduce peripheral sounds. The repeater is activated by a single push-button rather than a traditional slide, and features a security system that ensures that the movement will not be damaged if the push-button is inadvertantly activated while the repeater is already in motion.

Introducing the New James Bond Watch: Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition

Klick hier...The newest James Bond movie, called Spectre, will hit theaters on November 6th of this year and, as we all have expected and anticipated, Omega has unveiled its latest official 007 best replica Breitling watches, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition, to coincide with the film’s release. In this article from my blog,I reveal more about the new timepiece.

The dial of this new replica Omega watches is inspired by the coat of arms of the Bond family, and Omega says that the watch itself will be limited to the odd number of 15,007 pieces. The brand didn’t arrive at this number by coincidence, however: the movement used in the modern versions of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, of which this cheap Breitling replica watches is one, resists magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss. Combine that with Bond’s famous “007” numeral and the “15,007” number makes sense. You’ll find this number on the dial and also on the back of the fake Breitling watch, which indicates the series number and the text “15,007 Gauss.” Personally, I very much like the contrast between the yellow and the blue elements on the dial.

The Omega Seamaster Aquas Terra James Bond Limited Edition has a 41.5-mm case and is powered by Omega’s automatic Caliber 8507. In addition to its anitmagnetic properties, the version of the movement, according to Omega, boasts a newly designed winding rotor inspired by the iconic James Bond gun-barrel motif. I will update the article with a photo when Omega releases it.

Perhaps there will be a scene with a huge magnetic field, in which everything stops and is rendered useless except for Agent 007’s antimagnetic replica Breitling watches for UK sale?

Bremont Introduces New Film-Inspired Kingsman Collection

In January the British replica Breitling watches company Bremont brought out a new collection of world-time chronographs. The Bremont Kingsman Special Edition watches were designed in conjunction with the new film Kingsman: The Secret Service, out this month from 20th Century Fox. The three new models, which are worn throughout the film by actors like Colin Firth and Michael Caine, are available for purchase now.

In terms of Bremont watch genealogy, the Kingsman Special Edition bears a resemblance to the ALT1 family of fake Breitling watches. It combines a tricompax dial design for the chronograph with a 24-hour world timer. The world-time function is controlled via the crown at 8 o’clock, which rotates the bidirectional internal bezel bearing the names of cities in 24 time zones. Since Kingsman focuses on a jetsetting world of English spies, Bremont’s British pedigree and travelers’ watches make a perfect complement.

The Kingsman Special Edition has a BE-54AE movement. As dial arrangement would suggest, this caliber is Bremont’s version of the ETA Valjoux 7750.

The skeletonized rotor is decorated by Bremont and features the brand’s name. The Breitling replica watches has been COSC-certified as a chronometer.

The running seconds display is at 9 o’clock; the chronograph minutes subdial is at 12 o’clock and the chronograph minutes subdial at 6. A date window is at 3 o’clock.


The watches use Bremont’s three-part “Trip-Tick” case construction, involving a case middle or barrel of a distinct design (often in another alloy or treatment). The case is 43 mm in diameter with a lug width of 22 mm. Its height is 16 mm. The domed sapphire crystal is scratch-resistant and has nonreflective coating. The caseback bears a sapphire crystal window. The new replica watches uk is water resistant to 100 meters and comes on a leather strap with a pin buckle.
