Fratello Classics: 5 Rolex Watches Introduced at Recent Baselworlds

Whether you are a fan of Rolex or a “hater,” you’ve got to admit that its watches always seem to fit comfortably on any wrist, perform well, and — compared to a lot of other brands — are not even that expensive, considering what you get (an indestructible timepiece). Whether Cheap Replica Rolex Watches are as “interesting” as those from some other brands is a separate question that everyone must answer for him or herself.  Unfortunately, I suspect that many people still buy a Rolex simply because other people will recognize it.

1. Rolex Sky-Dweller

Introduced in 2012, the Rolex Sky-Dweller was part of the rumor mill long before its actual launch. However, no one (outside Rolex) expected the watch that Rolex showed on that very first day of Baselworld 2012. Its ingenious Ring Command bezel system enables the wearer to control the functions of the watch (date, local time, and reference time) in combination with the crown. This Annual Calendar Rolex Watches was introduced in white gold, yellow gold and Everose gold. More on the Sky-Dweller can be found here.

2. Rolex Day-Date

When Rolex updated the case diameters of its Datejust and Day-Date models from 36 mm to 41 mm, I didn’t expect them to introduce a new line of 36-mm Day-Date watches.  Last year, Rolex presented several Day-Date models on leather straps. Whether these are targeted only at women or also at men is not clear, but they have been provided with beautiful dial colors and matching straps. In all other areas, the watches remained unchanged compared to the original Day-Date. An overview of these new Day-Date models can be found here.

3. Rolex Yacht-Master II in Steel

Baselworld 2013 also saw the introduction of the Rolex Yacht-Master II in stainless steel. Although the all-gold and Rolesor (bi-color) models had already been on the market for some time, Rolex decided that it was time to offer this watch in its famous 904L stainless steel. This model also features the Ring Command system, to control the regatta-countdown timer function. More photos of this watch, and an explanation of the regatta timer, can be found here.

4. Rolex Daytona in Platinum

Whether it was an official anniversary edition, or just a new variation to an existing model, the platinum Rolex Daytona was introduced in the same year that this iconic watch celebrated its 50th anniversary. Perhaps the most sought-after chronograph in the world, the Daytona is now available in a platinum case for those lucky enough to afford one. The blue dial and chocolate-colored subdials and ceramic bezel make a nice combination. More about this platinum Daytona can be found here.Rolex Daytona - Platinum

5. Rolex GMT-Master IIBLNR

This  Genuine Replica Watches for travelers and pilots was introduced in a blue-and-black combination in 2013. Although many expected, and perhaps hoped for a “Pepsi” model (blue and red), Rolex decided it was time to show the world its new blue-and-black ceramic bezel. To match the bezel, the GMT hand was done in blue as well (the black-bezel model has a green GMT hand). Although I have to admit I shrugged my shoulders at first when I saw this watch in the display, I have to admit that I am starting to like its look. For those who don’t know, the BLNR stands for Bleu and Noir (blue and black). More information about the Rolex 116710BLNR can be found here.Rolex GMT-Master IIBLNR

Close-Up: The New-Look Rolex Submariner

Subtle but significant redesign is the hallmark of the recently redesigned Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner. The Best Breitling Replica Watches retains the Submariner’s immediately recognizable look but dispenses with the date window of previous models and incorporates several new technical innovations exclusive to Rolex.

The watch’s unidirectional-rotating 60-minute graduated bezel is now enhanced with a black insert made of virtually scratchproof, non-fading, corrosion-resistant ceramic that Rolex calls Cerachrom. The graduations are coated in a PVD process with a thin layer of platinum. The hour markers and hands on the sleek, black dial are filled with Rolex’s proprietary Chromalight luminescent material, which emits a blue glow that the company claims lasts twice as long as that of other luminous substances used on watch dials.

The classical Oyster case of the new Submariner is 40 mm in diameter and water-resistant to a depth of 300 meters (1,000 feet). The case middle is crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant 904L stainless steel, and the fluted caseback is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Offical Replica Rolex watchmakers. The winding crown, fitted with Rolex’s patented Triplock system, screws down securely against the case in a manner akin to a submarine’s hatch and is protected by a crown guard. The crystal is made of scratch-resistant synthetic sapphire.

The Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap

Smart wearable technology is one of the most talked about topics in the Best Rolex Replica Watches Online Store world in the past months. In January 2015, Montblanc will be the first luxury brand to combine wearable technology with fine watchmaking in the centuries old Swiss horological tradition.

The e-Strap device

The e-Strap device offers a variety of functionality.

Smart notifications, signaled by vibrations provide an alert of incoming communication without the need to look at the smartphone. It enables the preview of e-mails by topic and sender, read text messages, see incoming calls and status updates of social media feeds or reminders of important upcoming meetings, all on the wrist.

The activity tracker is a simple tool to monitor the wearer´s physical activity over time and keep track of his personal daily goals. To do so, it measures the number of steps taken per day, calories burnt and the distance travelled. The accompanying smartphone application enables the user to view the progress per week and month. The e-Strap will remind the wearer to stay active through unobtrusive vibration alerts and show at a glance the daily progress.

The remote controls are useful for controlling the smartphone with the e-Strap. The camera remote enables the taking of pictures with the smartphone by triggering the shutter with a tap on the e-Strap thus allowing better and easier selfies or group shots.

Playing, pausing, and skipping music on the smartphone can be also remotely steered with the music control function of the e-Strap.

Additionally, the Find-Me function allows searching for the watch or phone within a range of up to 30 meters, either by tapping on the e-Strap to find the smartphone or by using the smartphone application to find the Perfect Replica Watches.

The e-Strap device has an inbuilt touch screen display, readable in daylight, to display the information and navigate through the functionalities. The technical device is encapsulated in a stainless steel case with rubber protection and can be easily fixed and adjusted with the pass-through strap.

The Leather e-Strap

The TimeWalker collection e-Strap is equipped with a pass-through strap made of the innovative Montblanc Extreme Leather. The Extreme leather wristband created by the Montblanc Pelleteria in Florence, perfectly matches with the timepiece: markedly technical while retaining a sporty yet elegant appearance.

Due to its innovative manufacturing process, the upper surface of the leather wristband has a characteristic carbon appearance. In a long and meticulous process, the leather is textured and simultaneously impregnated with an innovative treatment that does not only coat the surface of the wristband, but also bonds with it and increases its structural strength. This innovative technique produces a high-performance and innovative leather, delivering abrasion resistance, water repellence and heat wear-, water- and fire-resistant.

The e-Strap device can be easily fixed and adjusted with the pass-through to all strap sizes 20/22mm.

Three new timepieces for the Timewalker collection

The collection extension will introduce three new models – all of them equipped with mechanical automatic winding movements living up to the highest standards of traditional Swiss fine watchmaking: a chronograph, a UTC (United Time Coordinated) with a second time zone and a three hands watch with the essential functionality of hours, minutes, seconds and date.

The expressive design of the 42 or 43-millimetre case, which combines clean lines with architectural shapes, made the Montblanc TimeWalker family of Montblanc timepieces instantly recognizable right from the outset. Blending sporty elegance and masculinity, the Montblanc TimeWalker carries its unique aesthetics and features the signature skeletonised horns, a narrow bezel, a large dial with Arabic numerals in a distinctive, clearly contoured typography, and the characteristic lancet-shaped hands.

Instantly, the “cold grey” micro-blasted steel case or the black DLC (Diamond like carbon) coating, witness to its dynamic spirit and technical elegance.

This sporty elegance continues on the dial, making use of its black background to accentuate the white numerals and dynamic red second hands common to all three models.

The window in the case back offers a clear view of the automatic mechanical calibre which guarantees reliability and precision. All calibres of the TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap program are manufactured in accord with all the rules that govern the art of Swiss Breitling Replica Watches for Men. They oscillate at a steady pace of 28,800 semi-oscillations per hour (4 Hz).

Hublot King Power Ayrton Senna

November 3, 2014, would have been Ayrton Senna’s 54th birthday. On that date in 2010, on the occasion of the Interlagos Grand Prix in Brazil, Senna’s sister Viviane, along with Rolex Replica Watches for Men the Instituto Ayrton Senna and Hublot, united the Formula 1 family along with Senna’s friends and loved ones to commemorate his 50th birthday, which featured the premiere of the award-winning documentary film Senna as well as the debut of this timepiece, created by Hublot in support of Instituto Ayrton Senna.
