Romain Gauthier HMS Ten

— The HMS Ten celebrates the 10th anniversary of Romain Gauthier Fake Watches UK.


The dial of HMS Ten is a harmonious composition of circles and arcs. Inside the chapter ring, there is the smoothly finished, off-centre hours-minutes subdial bearing the R. Gauthier logo and flanked either side by a Clous de Paris.

On the lower portion of the subdial, sectorial seconds allows visual access to the movement below, with the balance wheel and distinctive gear driving the seconds on show. The three parts of the dial are fixed invisibly from beneath, lending clarity and classicism to the displays.

“With HMS Ten, supreme legibility was paramount,” says Romain Gauthier. “My idea was to have a dial with completely unobstructed views. Once the eye is drawn to the hour-minute subdial, it is then naturally attracted to the sectorial seconds. Nothing disturbs the wearer’s reading of the time. Such a timeless, elegant dial design came to me naturally because I was born in the heart of Swiss Rolex replica watchmaking, the Vallée de Joux, and was constantly exposed to classic, historical dial design as I grew up there.”

The 41mm diameter case is distinguished by pure, clean, unbroken lines around its full perimeter. The Rolex replica watches features an ergonomic flat caseback crown, increasing winding efficiency while reducing wear and stress on components. The Vallée de Joux style finger bridges catch both the light and the eye with their seductive polished curves. The bespoke gear wheels feature circular arms providing both elegance and strength; the polished screw heads bear a unique S-slot, enabling more torque to be applied and aesthetic.

The large movement bridge at the top has a cut-out revealing some of the mainspring barrel and ratchet click. The cut-out features four highly polished, sharp internal bevelled angles – this anglage is the hallmark of superlative hand finishing since machines are not yet capable of milling and polishing sharp internal angles.

All components are designed, developed and manufacture by Romain Gauthier except for the mainspring, balance spring and jewels. The HMS Ten is available in three limited editions of 10 pieces each: platinum case/blue dial, white gold case/champagne dial and red gold case/anthracite dial.

Frédérique Constant Manufacture Zodiac 24H limited Edition

— Frédérique Constant celebrates the Year of the Goat and launches the Manufacture Zodiac 24H limited Edition.


To measure time, ancient Chinese people had a Chinese era calendar system. In the Chinese calendar, a day is evenly divided into 12 periods represented by the twelve Chinese zodiac signs called the twelve terrestrial branches. Each period is equivalent to the present two hours; each period is evenly divided into eight quarters (original quarter, original first quarter, original second quarter, original third quarter, positive quarter, positive first quarter, positive second quarter and positive third quarter). Each quarter is 15 minutes, equivalent to the present quarter hour.

To salute the long-standing Chinese traditional calendar system, Frédérique Constant unveils the Manufacture Zodiac 24H limited edition with the coming of the Year of Goat in 2015. Unlike common cheap Rolex replica watches, this is a 24-hour timepiece: The hour hand takes a turn and runs 24 hours, while the minute hand turns a circle and runs 120 minutes.

On the whole dial plate, the scales of the twelve terrestrial branches (the twelve zodiac signs) replace the Arabic from 1 to 12 or Roman numerals and serve as the main index markers. The position at the six o’clock is marked by the Chinese inscrpition “Year of the Goat”. Each position is a traditional Chinese unit of decimal time reflecting a quarter (15mins) of western time. As the Chinese hour is equal to 2 hours, the outside minute track has 8 positions. To facilitate modern people’s use, the 24-hour scales are marked with Arabic numerals at the innermost circle.

Piaget Replica Watches Our SIHH 2015 chat with Philippe Léopold-Metzger

— Piaget replica watches is always one of the highlights of my visit to SIHH, as I have a very deep appreciation for Piaget’s heritage as a movement maker.

Piaget is always one of the highlights of my visit to SIHH, as I have a very deep appreciation for Piaget’s heritage as a movement maker. In addition, I enjoy talking with Philippe Leopold-Metzger, Piaget’s president, as we share a love of fine timepieces and American football (he supports the New York Giants and my team is the Philadelphia Eagles). Here’s some of what he had to say during this year’s SIHH.

On value:

“We have to make sure the products make sense, as the market is becoming more price sensitive, impacted by the currency that is quite strong. People are interested in new products, but there has to be value for money. One we have been working on for quite a long time, due to the price of gold, is the Altiplano in red gold with a red gold bracelet. We have been working on producing it at a more affordable price than before. The price range is $27,500 – $38,000, which is a great range. The Polo, for example, is almost double the price. We did a good job designing this for cost. We had to have a more attractive entry price for a Piaget gold Swiss replica watches.”

On new products:

“We need to find the right mix between showing too many products, where you lose the focus of the press, who will remember nothing, so we thought this year it was important to focus and bring a collection that makes sense commercially.”

Strap or bracelet?

“More and more men are going for the strap, but women in general really want a bracelet. Bracelet fake watches for sale are about 25% of our sales.”

Quartz or mechanical for women?

“I still believe that a lot of women are happy with quartz, but we have to have mechanicalcheap replica Rolex watches in the line. Women like small complications, like the moon, that add to the beauty and the aesthetics.”

What is the most important product this year?

“For me, it’s the Altiplano Chronograph. It is an ultra-thin flyback chronograph with a second time zone. We have the thinnest case, 8.24 mm and the thinnest movement at 4.65mm. For elegance, I think it’s important to have thin cheap Rolex replica watches.
