Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture Men's Replica

Frederique Constant men's Replica is a young brand, having been established in 1988, yet it is one of a select group in Switzerland that can count itself as being a "manufacture." This is shown off best in replica watches like the Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture replica watch, which the brand has been producing for several years now and is newly introduced with a deep brown dial.

Previously, Frederique Constant added a variant with a blue dial to its collection of worldtimer replica watches which at that point only came with white dials. The new Classic Worldtimer Manufacture replica watch comes with a brown dial, which is a less obvious choice than something like black, but it matches well with the rose gold plating on the case. Ironically, the drawback lies here, as there might be more than a few people who would just prefer the plain steel to a gold-plated case.

The new Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture replica watch comes in a 42mm-wide polished stainless steel case that has been rose gold-plated. An interesting point about the Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture is that unlike most other worldtimer replica watches, there’s no pusher - everything is controlled by the crown. Water resistance is a pretty decent 50m and the replica watch also has a see-through sapphire crystal display case back.



Now, I would have expected the next version to have a black dial, but a brown dial is an interesting choice of color. In fact, brown dials are relatively rare and hard to find. The world map on the dial features a lighter shade of brown to provide contrast, and in keeping with the brown theme, the hour ring and city ring are both rendered in various differing shades of brown. I’m really looking forward to seeing what this replica watch will look like in the flesh.

Like the blue dial version before it, this Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture replica watch has hour and minute hands applied with lume to improve legibility in the dark. The hands are hand-polished and plated with rose gold. The hour markers also have lume plots. At 6 o’clock, you have the subdial showing the date.

Inside beats Frederique Constant’s FC-718 in-house movement. It beats at a very modern 4Hz and features 42 hours of power reserve. It is also handsomely decorated, featuring perlage and circular Côtes de Genève decoration on the main bridge. But more importantly, having an in-house movement allowed Frederique Constant to make the Classic Worldtimer Manufacture replica watch easy to use. Unlike other worldtimer replica watches that may require pushers to advance the timezone, the Frederique Constant Classic Worldtimer Manufacture’s various functions can be operated by the crown, including setting the time, calibrating the worldtimer, and even adjusting the date.

Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Carbon Naimakka Paracord Strap Men's Replica

Reviewing the Victorinox Swiss Army INOX (I.N.O.X.) Carbon replica watch leaves me feeling torn. I like the product - I really do - but it makes me feel compelled to do things I probably shouldn't. I'm a guy who likes adventure, but I'm also at the point in my life that I don't know if I am willing to put up with the risks that a timepiece like this is meant to survive in. With that in mind, let's take a look at Victorinox Swiss Army's latest version of their INOX replica watch with its trendy black carbon case and updated, more aggressive dial.

The Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Carbon is new for 2017 and is the fourth major variation on the original Victorinox Swiss Army INOX in steel that the brand released in 2014 (reviewed here). If you aren't familiar with the INOX replica watch family, its purpose is pretty simple - to be a highly durable Swiss quartz sports replica watch with a look that is refined enough to be handsome and sophisticated. Victorinox Swiss Army developed a harsh battery of over 100 durability tests that the INOX replica watch would need to withstand. They made a marketing gimmick out of it, but it's based on the reality that these replica watches are in fact designed to be durable (shock, pressure, vibration, scratches, etc.), and put up with the elements (heat, cold, water, dust, UV rays, etc.).


The Replica Victorinox Swiss Army INOX came in steel and followed up with the INOX Professional Diver, the INOX Titanium, and now the INOX Carbon. As I've said in the past, because inox means stainless steel in French (inoxydable), that there are INOX replica watches not in steel is a bit weird to a word-meaning-obsessed person like me. Though I am able to forgive it as I do genuinely think the collection is good enough to merit more than just cosmetic dial changes. Recall that in 2015, we also gave away some special Victorinox Swiss Army INOX replica watches in red with the aBlogtoreplica watch logo on the back - as a reward to this website's top commenters in celebration of getting 100,000 comments. As of writing, we are close to 200,000 comments.


The Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Carbon presents the first black-colored INOX case and use of the lightweight material for the brand. I am pretty sure the development of the Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Carbon began with the brand wanting to have a black-colored version of the replica watch. Rather than simply do a coated metal case, they decided to get trendy like other brands (especially high-end ones) and use a high-tech carbon material.

Carbon composites are an "it" material in the luxury replica watch industry these days, and not all of them are created equally. Similar to carbon fiber, carbon composite begins with small pieces of carbon material which are formed into blocks, heated, and then machined like metal parts. The result is a relatively scratch-resistant material that is very dense and thus quite tough, as well as lighter than both titanium and, of course, steel.

Not everyone likes the look of a carbon case. There is an unfinished industrial look to it which is going to be cool or too raw depending on your tastes and perspective. I don't know that I'd want to wear a carbon-cased replica watch all the time, but as a sports replica watch I think it is pretty cool. It is also arguably quite fashionable today, and the material itself tells a good story that I think a lot of guys will appreciate.


The case is the same shape as other 43mm-wide Victorinox Swiss Army INOX replica watches and still water-resistant to 200 meters. The rear of the case is steel, and I think that there is a steel inner-case as well. Also, don't forget that, as this is an INOX replica watch, Victorinox Swiss Army traditionally supplies a rubberized case guard that you can put over the replica watch for additional durability.

A Complete Guidebook On Ulysse Nardin InnoVision 2 Concept Men's Replica

At SIHH 2017, Ulysse Nardin men's replica debuts its newest concept timepiece, the Ulysse Nardin InnoVision 2. It comes 10 years after the original InnoVision that was released in 2007. Both of these are based on the famed Freak collection and feature innovations that Ulysse Nardin has or will implement into production models in the future. Just like the original InnoVision, Ulysse Nardin promises "10 innovations" in the InnoVision 2. The promise of these new features finding their way into production replica watches is extremely tantalizing, and we finally see some bold modern design steps forward in the Freak collection. This is easily one of the most impressive new-for-2017 timepieces that I've seen thus far.

Concept replica watches are very rare these days. It used to be that we saw at least a few "not for production anytime soon" timepieces from brands meant to show off potential design and technical directions that production replica watches might enjoy in the future. This is, of course, similar to what you see in the automobile industry. Over the last few years, concept replica watches have become an extremely rare species, but the ones we do see tend to be exciting. I recall the Parmigaini Sefine from SIHH 2016 that was equally amazing.



Ulysse Nardin Best Swiss Replica Watches Online declined to share things like specific technical specifications for the InnoVision 2 such as case size and materials. In a sense, those things are mostly irrelevant given that the focus is on the internals. From a design perspective, we see a timepiece which is much more innovative than the original InnoVision when it comes to aesthetics. This is a "Freak of the Future," building on one of my favorite high-end replica watch collections, hinting at where future Freak models might go design-wise. While I don't have a problem with the Ulysse Nardin Freak models of today, I wouldn't mind seeing further evolutions of the case and dial that go the InnoVision 2 route in the future. For now, I hope I get a chance to play with the Ulysse Nardin InnoVision 2 because this is one cool-looking take on the Freak.



The replica watch feels like the product of an ambitious project by someone who wanted to not only make the Freak more convenient and functional, but also raided Ulysse Nardin's closet of interesting experiments using silicon and sapphire crystal to make the movement. Given that the Ulysse Nardin InnoVision 2 is a concept replica watch, it is difficult to determine how well the actual movement works, or how much of an improvement in performance much of this new tech has over more traditional movements. Then again, even production Freak replica watches have movements which are anything but traditional. replica watch movement tech nerds will swoon over the possibilities, and everyone else will be impressed with all the fancy terminology. Last, I'll note that the term "silicium" is the same as "silicon."

As I mentioned, Ulysse Nardin promises a list of 10 innovations in the InnoVision 2. These are a combination of elements which are related to the movement or how the replica watch indicates the time. Many of them are patented. I'll go ahead and summarize the list of the 10 Ulysse Nardin InnoVision 2 innovations here:

A Elegant Timepiece Of Blancpain les Métiers d’Art Shakudō Replica

Rarely seen in the world of watchmaking, Blancpain les Métiers d’Art Shakudō replica watch has brought this art form forward to today with a series of unique pieces which reflect the expertise of the Manufacture in the practices of Métiers d’Art. No less than four different models are being presented which combine shakudō, engraving and Damascening. Each timepiece will be exclusive as it will reflect the individual handcrafts of the artisan and his or her style of engraving, rokushō patina. The different resulting nuances in depth render each work truly unique.

Recognizable from his elephants head, the image of Ganesh is portrayed on the dial. For Hindus, Ganesh is the God who conquers obstacles. He is also the God of wisdom, intelligence, prudence and the leader of the schools and academics. This is illustrated with a hand engraved gold throne placed in the center of the Hindu motifs. Finely detailed, the ornaments represented on this piece have been crafted in Damascene. This high technique fake Blancpain les Métiers d’Art Best Swiss Replica Watches Online consists of fashioning troughs upon the dial surface into which fine threads of soft metal, in this case gold, are painstakingly hammered in place, thereupon to be hand engraved.


The black patina is obtained following a process called passivation, which calls for the application of a solution. This solution, which is composed of copper acetate (green gray), has been traditionally fabricated in Japan where it is known as rokushō. According to the number of applications of the rokushō solution, the black becomes successively deeper and more intense. The shakudō was used historically among other things to create swords, decorative objects and jewelry. The artisans who practiced shakudō often added engravings and ornaments.


Fully respecting the aesthetics of the Blancpain Villeret Métiers d’Art copy watch collection, these models are housed in a red gold stepped bezel case of 45 mm, the diameter of which gives free reign to the creativity of Blancpain’s craftsmen. Through the sapphire case back, one can gaze upon the hand wound caliber 15B decorated with hand applied Côtes de Genève (Geneva stripes).
