Richard Mille RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur

No one can debate the hundreds of years of Swiss fascination with the art of fine horology that we all appreciate today. Yet, many will be unaware of the refined and equally age-old Swiss tradition regarding the creation of mimetic mechanical objects of art that imitate nature, thus blurring the dividing lines between artistic creativity and life itself.

This idea of being able to capture the very substance of life using mechanical means was born during the Age of Reason, motivated by the concepts presented by philosophers in their attempts to comprehend the mysterious inner workings of nature. In this manner exquisite miniature animal, insect and flower automat a of all kinds were created inprecious metals and lacquer work to amuse and delight royal patrons in Europe and around the globe.

The new RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur epitomizes these traditions of horological artistry in a vibrant expression of cheap Swiss replica watchmaking distinctive to Richard Mille‘s vision of timekeeping in the 21st century. For the creation of this timepiece a special flower, the Magnolia, was chosen as its existence marks millions of years on the earth even before the emergence of bees within the environment, flowering in an endless cycle of birth and regeneration. The Magnolia’s delicate appearance stands in sharp contrast to its strong organic structure and resilience in difficult environments.

At the lower left of the dial on the RM 19-02 we see the Magnolia surrounding a flying tourbillon escapement with five delicate, hand created and colored petals. Working either in passing, or on demand using the pusher at 9 o’Clock, the Magnolia opens and closes with rhythmic regularity in a delicate kinetic ballet. However, if you look very closely, you will see that Richard Mille chose to imitate nature in the most exquisitely extreme manner possible…..The Magnolia does not just open, the entire flying tourbillon with its stone set stamen actually moves upwards 1mm when fully opened, exactly copying the natural motion of the flower’s arching upwards of its stamen to increase its chances of pollination. Attention to details such as these exemplify the Richard Mille approach to cheap Omega Replica watchmaking artistry on every level.

For those interested in the technical mastery behind this unique grade 5 titanium tourbillon caliber, a complex mechanism comprising 5 levers surrounds the underside of the petals, and yet another system combined with a long pinion is used to raise the flying tourbillon and stamen upwards within the flower’s circumference – all using energy supplied by a separate, second winding barrel. As an added attention to the tiniest details, it is even possible to adjust the opening and closing cycle.

The RM 19-02 Fleur is limited to a production of 30 pieces worldwide.

Fratello Classics: 4 Vintage Omega Watches Under $1,000

With this series of Omega articles, we will zoom in on some of the other interesting models that Omega manufactured (or still manufactures). This first post is about my personal picks of Omega watches that can be had for under $1,000. That’s right, even though new replica Omega watches are far more expensive, $1,000 or less can still buy you some very interesting vintage or pre-owned models from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. Many are watches that are renowned for their quality in-house movements by collectors and enthusiasts.

As collecting vintage Omega watches — especially the Seamaster and Speedmaster models — gets more popular, prices have gone up drastically over the last decade. However, it is still possible to get other interesting watches under $1,000. Many are in the Constellation collection, once Omega’s flagship model. The collection goes back to 1952 and Constellation watches are praised for their precise chronometer movements. An all-gold Constellation was more expensive than a Rolex Day-Date with President bracelet back in the 1950s and ’60s. All-gold Omega Constellations cost well over $4,000 – $5,000 these days, but are still cheaper to source than an all-gold Rolex Day-Date Reference 1803 with President bracelet. Omega’s Seamaster watches go back to 1948 and, in addition to the famous Seamaster 300 diving models, Omega made a number of Seamaster dress watches that are worth checking out.

The fact that these watches can be found for under $1,000 has little to do with their quality or beauty; the issue with most of them is that today’s watch enthusiasts find their 34-mm case diameters to be too small. Other find that, when worn on a nice leather strap, such a watch makes the perfect dress replica watches for formal occasions. The era in which you could find a Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” for under $1,000 is over, however, unless you’re lucky enough to find someone who doesn’t know what he or she is selling.

Here’s what I found during a quick search on the interwebs.

Omega Constellation Reference 2852 10SC, ca.1961

Let’s start with a couple of Constellation models you should be able to source for under a grand. Although this watch looks a bit used, worn, or perhaps even “damaged,” some might appreciate its “patina.” Although I am not too fond of dials that are scarred, this one does show that the watch has seen a bit of the world. This piece reminds me of an old, comfy-looking leather Chesterfield couch. This is an early 1960s model that has a Caliber 505 movement. These first series of Caliber 50x movements came right after their bumper movements (Caliber 354 and so on) and are considered to be solid performers. After the 50x series, Omega came up with the 55x and 56x movements, which are improved versions. Just like all other Constellation watches of that period, this one was chronometer-rated. The dial has the “officially certified chronometer” wording and the movement has “adjusted to 5 positions and temperatures” engraved.  This reference 2852 10SC Constellation has a 35-mm case diameter and has the fancy lugs and and 10-sided winding crown. The dial has quite a bit of patina, but is still very readable, with large dauphine hands. It’s not shown in the pictures, but on the caseback of this Constellation (as on all the current models, as well, I believe) is an embossing of an observatory. This particular model has a gold emblem on the back, with the Geneva observatory.

Omega Constellation ‘C’ Model reference 168.017 ca.1968

Later in the 1960s, Omega  came up with a different case design for the Constellation collection. While the famous round “pie-pan” models were still available during the time, Omega also introduced the “C”-shaped model. The one I picked is Reference 168.017. It contains automatic Caliber 564, which has a quick-set feature. This model appears to be larger than the round models, mainly due to the integrated lugs, but is also just 35-mm in diameter. It certainly wears larger, though. You will also be able to find these models from a later period with a 300-Hz tuning-fork movement.

Although the case shape is a bit peculiar for today’s tastes, perhaps, the dial is something you should pay attention to. It has a very nice texture, which is a bit difficult to see in the picture, and the stick-shaped hour markers have onyx inlays. The caseback has the Geneva Observatory emblem, of course.

As you can see on the picture of the movement, the gold-copper finish is very nice to look at. If you are going to buy a vintage Omega with a similar caliber, make sure to have a peek at the movement before you buy. Some of them have green spots (moisture) or patina (also moisture) and if there are too many of these spots, I would leave the watch alone.

Omega Seamaster De Ville 166.020 ca.1968

Before the De Ville became a stand-alone collection of watches, Omega used this name for some of the dress Rolex replica watches sale in its Seamaster collection. A number of these Seamaster dress watches actually are not that much different from the Constellation watches, except that the Constellation models always had chronometer-certified movements and the cases were a bit fancier.

This Seamaster De Ville also has an automatic caliber (565) and has a gold-capped case. Do not mistake this for a plaque or double; it is more like a shell of solid gold that goes over a stainless-steel case. You could say these were the two-tone watches of that era. Unfortunately, the watch in this photo does not have an original crown (it is unsigned and slightly too big) but with a bit of luck you might find either an original spare crown, or even a model with the correct crown. The stainless steel caseback has the Seamaster logo and Seahorse image embossed.

Omega Genève Chronostop ca.1970

Omega’s Genève collection is a bit odd, to be honest. It was used as a label for all different sorts of watches, from dress watches like the ones above to sporty watches such as the Genève Dynamic models of the 1970s. One of the Genève models I really like is the Chronostop watch. It was hard to find one under $1,000, as the model is relatively popular for a small-cased watch, but I managed to do so.

This particular watch’s movement is Caliber 865, based on Lemania Caliber 2225. It has a monopusher chronograph function. As you can see, the watch has only one pusher, which is used to start, pause (not stop), and reset the red seconds hand. By pushing it once, the chronograph hand starts to run. If you want to stop the time, you have to push it and keep it down. If you release the button, it will reset to zero again.

Omega Genève Chronostop

Other cheap replica Omega watches that would fit the $1,000 bill include the 1970s Omega Genève Dynamic, a gold-capped Omega Seamaster Calendar with the date aperture at 6 o’clock, and a number of other Constellation and Seamaster references. One of the fun parts of the quest is the challenge of finding one that’s the right watch for you and also in good shape. Give up any hopes to find a Constellation or Seamaster in gold, or to get one with box, papers and original invoice, for this kind of money. However, if you do come across one, do not hesitate.

Omega DeVille Chronograph Co-Axial Calibre 9301

In 2012, Omega introduced a slew of very high-profile timepieces tied to major events that it sponsored — the London Olympics; the James Bond film, Skyfall; and Golf’s Ryder cup. Largely lost in the hoopla was one of the Swiss brand’s most strikingly elegant new releases from that year, an Omega De Ville Chronograph powered by manufacture Caliber 9301, with Omega’s now-famous co-axial escapement, and outfitted in a rose-gold case and blue dial and strap. Here we give this Rolex replica watches sale the showcase we feel it deserves.

While not as ingrained in pop culture as other Omega watches like the Seamaster (now the go-to timepiece for Agent 007) or the Speedmaster (the legendary “Moonwatch”), the dressy De Ville line has nevertheless served as a stage for the introduction of some of the brand’s most important watchmaking innovations. It was in a De Ville that Omega introduced Caliber 2500 — the first movement outfitted with the co-axial escapement developed by Dr. George Daniels — in 1999. In 2007, the De Ville was the launching pad for the company’s first in-house movement, co-axial Caliber 8500/8501 — in a watch that also marked the debut of the exhibitionist Hour Vision case. More recently, Omega used the De Ville Hour Vision Annual Calendar for the debut of another technical innovation, its Si14 silicon balance spring.

The Omega De Ville Chronograph contains Omega’s Caliber 9300/9301, the chronograph version of the in-house movement that made its debut in the Hour Vision models. The movement uses a column-wheel system and is equipped with a co-axial escapement and an Si14 silicon balance spring. It has been certified as a chronometer by the Swiss testing agency COSC. So convinced is Omega of the reliability and stability of its movement that it delivers each Replica Breitling Watches with a four-year warranty.

This 18k rose-gold case is 42 mm in diameter and features polished and brushed finishes. The two-zone blue dial has two domed subdials: the one at 3 o’clock displays both the 60-minute and 12-hour counters for the chronograph, making it easy to read elapsed times; the one at 9 o’clock is for the running seconds. The best Swiss replica watches has a central chronograph seconds hand and 18k-gold, diamond-polished, faceted central hour and minute hands. The applied Roman numeral indices are also gold, faceted on the  sides and ends, and fully diamond-polished. brown or blue leather strap, or with a stainless steel case on a stainless steel bracelet or on a black or blue leather strap. The hour hand can be changed without affecting the minute and seconds hands, a boon for frequent travelers who traverse multiple time zones.

The movement, which is visible through the case’s sapphire exhibition back, has an 18k gold rotor and balance bridge. Other decorations on the movement include Geneva waves in Arabesque and blackened screws, barrels and balance wheel.

The rose-gold model shown here — with its blue alligator leather strap matching the dial — is also available with an opaline silver dial. There is also a model in a stainless-steel case, with a choice of blue, opaline silver or black dials, and a choice of black or blue strap or steel bracelet. These models contain Omega Caliber 9300, which is identical in function to the rose-gold model’s Caliber 9301 but has a rhodium-plated rotor and balance bridge rather than gold ones. Prices are $29,000 for the rose-gold models, $8,300 for stainless steel on a leather strap, and $9,000 for stainless steel with bracelet.
