Swiss Replica Panerai: A Powerful Accessory For Men

A watch is a powerful accessory for men, which make every man stand out. When it came to men’s watches there was meticulous care and research done. They would go into great detail about the story of their purchase and his watch. The mechanics of the watch attract a lot of men, the automatic mechanism is an ultimate and most cool thing. What’s more, men have fewer accessory options than women and a watch is the only way a man can splash out on expensive jewellery. Plus, there are a lot of brands who affiliate themselves with a certain live style, sport, cars, sailing etc.

If you are a watch guy, you must know and love Panerai. The watches of Panerai are surely among the most sophisticated and luxurious pieces that men can find. The rugged and clean look always  keep the attraction. When my first time seeing Panerai watch, I thought they looked really cool, really stood out from the crowd. When a watch stands out, you will enjoy wearing them. The simple, rugged and clean Panerais never lost their appeal, they are really cool. To me, a Panerai is probably the only watch I will always like and keep liking. I can actually imaging wearing it for 30years and then passing it on to a younger family member and they will find it a classic, simple, rugged watch with loads of history and still looking cool.

For many years, Panerai has been well-known for its professional functionality and unique design. In terms of the classics created by Panerai, all watch fans find it’s hard to ignore it. If you want professional watch, just choose Panerai replica watches. The Panerai watches are a natural blend of Italian design, Swiss technology and passion for the sea. It can be said that Panerai is a great brand that attracts a type of customer that’s looking for a high end timepiece that is a bit out of the ordinary. Watches that come out from the workshop of Panerai have been truly breathtaking and regarded as the standard of a luxury watch. The most popular Panerai model is the replica panerai luminor marina. The Luminor Marinas usually feature a 44-mm wide case and the recognizable trademark crown guard that makes Panerais stand out in the horological crowd.

Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 StingHD Watch Watch Releases


I still vividly remember the first time I read about the Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 – it was in a watch magazine in my hotel room in Taipei while on a work trip. And I thought to myself, what horological sorcery is this? Using magnets and balls to tell time? But that is exactly the kind of work and the kind of watch that independent watchmaker Christophe Claret is all about – watches that are innovative, technically impressive, and designed to evoke watch-lust. For 2017, Christophe Claret is revisiting the X-TREM-1 and is giving enthusiasts a new version of this creatively designed watch called the X-TREM-1 StingHD.


Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 StingHD Watch Watch Releases


The new Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 StingHD was designed in collaboration with StingHD, a New York-based jewelry and accessories company known for making men’s bracelets with exotic leathers like stingray and python. They are also apparently known for their use of the skull motif. The watch keeps the key components that made the original X-TRME-1 so special. There’s an inclined flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, which also displays the running seconds, and the retrograde hour and minutes displays are still shown using a series of belts, magnets, and two small steel balls. What has changed, however, are the overall aesthetics of the watch.

The Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 StingHD comes in a PVD-treated Grade 5 titanium case that measures 40.8mm across, 56.8mm tall, and rated water-resistant to 30m. Across the large sapphire crystal that covers much of the face of the watch is the brand’s name emblazoned in bright red. On the sides of the case, the hour and minute indicators are inscribed with red lacquer and feature red Super-LumiNova lines underneath to provide some nighttime legibility.

The two sapphire crystal tubes for the metal spheres displaying the time are held in place by stainless steel rings – also given a black PVD treatment. Continuing this all-black theme are the hollowed, also PVD-treated metal spheres within the two sapphire tubes.

To match the case, the watch comes with a black stingray strap with red stitching. Owners will also get to personalize an additional strap. But that’s not all, in addition to the two straps, they will get another complimentary handcrafted bracelet that features a black diamond encrusted skull with ruby eyes. The straps and the handcrafted bracelet were both designed by StingHD.

The skull treatment doesn’t end there. Look closely and you will see that the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock has a new tourbillon cage that has been conceived by StingHD. The tourbillon cage has been redesigned to incorporate a black chrome-plated aluminum skull that is a signature of the brand’s jewelry. And as if that weren’t enough, the skull even features rubies for its eyes, which makes it look even more menacing. And around the periphery of the tourbillon is signed StingHD.

The movement within is Christophe Claret’s FLY11 caliber. It is a hand-wound movement that features over 432 components and uses two barrels, one for the movement gear train, and the other for the time indications. To match the rest of the watch, the movement in the X-TREM-1 StingHD has been given a matching black PVD finish. And considering the complexity of the movement, the power reserve is pretty decent at 50 hours.

But that’s not all – the Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 StingHD has yet another a trick up its sleeve. While the front-facing sapphire crystal gives owners unrestricted view of the movement within, breathing hot air onto it will cause a white skull to reveal itself. It is pretty gimmicky, but nonetheless, a very cool and playful feature that I’m sure owners will have lots of fun with.

Clearly, because of the unique aesthetics of the Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 StingHD, this watch is not for everyone. But if you like a) black watches, b) skulls, c) something edgy, or d) all of the above, then this watch may be for you. Personally, I like it when watchmakers exhibit a sense of fun and humor, and this watch is certainly has a bit of a mischievous quality about it. The Christophe Claret X-TREM-1 StingHD is limited to just 8 pieces with a price of 278,000 CHF each. christopheclaret.com

Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 Watch

Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 Watch Watch Releases


Emmanuel Bouchet is one of the youngest independent watch brands around. Founded in 2015, its first watch was the Complication One, which displayed time in a rather unusual fashion using sapphire discs that formed subdials. Now, two years later, the brand has announced its second watch, and it is plainly named the EB02. Compared to the Complication One, the EB02 is a simpler watch and about half the price. It displays the time only, but don’t let that fool you – the Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 is no less exquisite.


Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 Watch Watch Releases


Before we talk about the watches, it is necessary to talk a bit about the man behind them. Emmanuel Bouchet might not be a household name yet, but watch lovers should certainly keep tabs on this brand. The founder, Emmanuel Bouchet, is actually no stranger to watchmaking and high horology. Bouchet was actually the genius behind the epic Harry Winston Opus 12 watch from 2012 which displayed time using a complex series of spinning indicators. Though the Emmanuel Bouchet Complication One (reviewed here and seen hands-on here in more executions) and the new EB02 watches don’t have spinning indicators, the two watches still embody the sensitivities and philosophies that Bouchet brings to watchmaking.

Alright, now back to the EB02. The Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 comes in a 39mm case, available in 18k white gold and 18k rose gold. It is also relatively thin, coming in at just 9.5mm. It might look simple, but if you take a closer look, you will find that the case is actually quite unusual. For example, it doesn’t actually have a bezel and the case profile itself is actually quite wavy and organic. Next, pay attention to the aperture of the dial and also the highly domed sapphire crystal. This accentuates the three-dimensional qualities of the dial and makes it seem as if the subdials are floating in space.

The Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 will come with a black lacquer dial or a white mother of pearl dial. From the press photos here, they look absolutely sublime. Both dials have a very liquid and crystalline look. But if these two dials are not your taste, Emmanuel Bouchet will also allow clients to customize their own lacquer dials.

As I mentioned earlier, the Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 is a much less complex watch than the Complication One. At 12 o’clock, you have a sapphire disc that displays the time in simple hours and minutes. And at around 7 o’clock beneath it is another subdial that shows the running seconds and also doubles as a day/night indicator. For users who want a little more pizzazz, there is the option to add diamonds on the dial. These diamonds will be suspended on “Emmanuel Bouchet cones” from 3 to 6 o’clock. As far as diamond dials are concerned, this is possibly the most subtle and graceful implementation that I have seen. Sure, some might think of it as a little gimmicky, but I think the overall effect is actually quite cool and it gives owners the opportunity to dress up the dial a little in a very elegant manner that doesn’t scream Look at me! too much.

The movement within is the new caliber Emmanuel Bouchet EB89F, which is also the brand’s first automatic movement. It relies on a micro-rotor for winding, which also explains how Emmanuel Bouchet managed to keep the watch so thin. It has a single barrel and offers a power reserve of 45 hours. The movement is designed to be shaped like a butterfly and the main bridges are satin-finished and beveled. In addition, they have small cutouts that showcase the gear train below. Beneath the rotor and main plates is also some perlage decoration.

With the watch industry facing tough times, the new Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 represents an attempt by the brand at offering more accessible and value-for-money pieces. That is not to say that Emmanuel Bouchet has suddenly become a mainstream watch brand – no, the Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 will still be produced in extremely limited numbers and will still feature very high levels of craftsmanship and handwork. But, it is significantly more affordable than the Complication One watch. For lovers of independent watchmaking, the Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 presents an attractive proposition because of its sublime dial, customizability, and beautiful movement. The Emmanuel Bouchet EB02 in 18k white gold and rose gold is priced at 49,800 Swiss francs. With diamonds on the dial, it is priced at 57,000 Swiss francs. Only 18 pieces in white gold and 18 pieces in rose gold will be made. emmanuelbouchet.com
