In 2015, Montblanc replica watches introduced an attractive and easy-to-use worldtime complication with the Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum model (we wrote about it here).
The same function, telling the time in 24 timezones, is now presented in a new model which is part of the 4810 collection ((4810 refers to the height in meters of the highest mountain in the Alps, the Mont Blanc).
The Montblanc 4810 Orbis Terrarum fake watches (from the Latin for “globe” and “earth”) is characterised by an eye-catching dial constructed of multiple layers, starting with the main sapphire crystal disc that displays the continents as viewed from the North Pole and the names of the 24 cities representing the different time zones.
The continents are cut out from the rest of the disc that displays the oceans in a light blue color. A second sapphire crystal disc indicates the passing of day and night with a dark blue for the night and a gradient of yellow and green for the day. This disc also includes the 24-hour ring that indicates the different times in the 24 cities.
To adjust the time, the local time city first needs to be positioned in front of the red triangle at 6 o’clock via the pusher at 8 o’clock. Then the hours and minutes can be adjusted through the crown to set the correct local time. Once this is completed, the time in all 24 time zones will be simultaneously displayed around the dial. When traveling to another timezone, the new destination city simply needs to be aligned at 6 o’clock using the pusher at 8 o’clock.
The latest addition from Chopard cheap replica watches to the XP line is the L.U.C XP Skeletec, a watch where the Geneva-based manufacture applies the art of skeletonizing to an ultra thin movement.
The slate-grey sunburst satin-brushed dial forms a ring between the 39.50 mm x 7.13 mm rose gold case and the skeletonised mechanical self-winding movement L.U.C Calibre 96.17-S, introduced in 2012 as the first skeletonised calibre produced by the Chopard Manufacture.
The ultra-thin movement Chopard fake watches beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz) and offers a remarkable 65-hour power reserve thanks to the Twin technology, a Chopard-patented system which combines two coaxial barrels, a technical feat if you consider that the movement is just 3.3 mm thick.
Mainplate and bridges are adorned with Côtes de Genève on the dial side and openworked to reveal the details of the mechanism and its gear wheels.
The dial is completed by rose gold hour-markers and Dauphine hands.
The Chopard L.U.C XP Skeletec series replica watches (ref. 161936-5003) is a limited edition of 288 numbered pieces and has a price of Euro 19,320.
It has been long-speculated, and recently confirmed, that the first major smartwatch from the Swatch Group would be released by group brand Tissot. A few weeks ago, Swatch Group chairman, Nick Hayek, mentioned that a Tissot replica smart watch would be released at Baselworld 2016 and now here it is: the Tissot Smart-Touch. Based on the outgoing Tissot T-Touch Solar, the Smart-Touch is an extremely logical and modern evolution of the T-Touch family of technology-inspired Swiss timepieces that began life in the late 1990s.
This isn’t the time to go into a full discussion of the history of the T-Touch collection, but I can say that it makes a lot of sense for Tissot’s signature electronic watch to now offer “connected functionality.” What is the most interesting, is that Tissot cheap fake watches will sell the Smart-Touch at about the same price as the T-Touch Expert Solar, which was debuted in 2014. You can read the full , where I believe I mentioned that in today’s day and age the T-Touch collection seemed to almost “want” smartwatch functionality.
What the T-Touch Expert Solar added to the T-Touch family – in addition to an updated design and faster movement – was solar-power generation. As you can see, much of the face is made up of an exposed photovoltaic cell which uses ambient light to power the quartz movement, motors that operate the hands, as well as the LCD screen which makes up a large part of the bottom of the face. Tissot now joins a small rank of watches previously only made up of Japanese timepieces such as Casio and Citizen that combine light power generation with Bluetooth connectivity.
The Swatch Group has been mostly lukewarm in their response to smartwatches until now – a stance which makes sense since the “connected watch industry” has the potential to seriously disrupt their core revenue stream which comes from the sale of Swatch and other entry-level priced timepieces. With that said, the Swatch Group also owns a number of historical luxury Tissot replica watches brands who primarily sell mechanical watches such as Omega, Blancpain, and Breguet. In fact, the Tissot Smart-Touch is the first major smart watch technology investment that the brand has seemingly made (for a final consumer product) since the ill-fated SPOT watch system from the early 2000s which connected to radio signals.
