All About The Titanium Watches

Watches are not only a fashionable accessory, they are a practical one as well. There are many factors to consider when it comes to purchasing a watch. The first consideration for most people is that it must fit comfortably. Titanium makes a great material for a watch due to its high strength-to-weight ratio. You’ll have a hard time finding a lighter or stronger material than titanium, sometimes called “space-age material” due to its low density.  For me, titanium is the best overall engineering metal ever!

Titanium watches are roughly 30 percent stronger than stainless steel, yet weigh less. Titanium is a dark gray material that is found in sand deposits and rocks. Its original purpose was to be used in NASA space and aircraft construction, though it has certainly branched out since then. One of the primary benefits of titanium, aside from its lighter weight, is that it contains an oxide film that does not corrode or rust. In terms of watch wear, this is useful for watches for underwater use, or for best replica watches that are worn daily in harsh environments.

Titanium has recently become very popular in high-end watches, and it is not without reason. This is because they have proven to be a cheaper option than traditionally used higher end materials such as gold or platinum. A titanium watch case can be abused, but it won’t crack. It can be exposed to salt water and salt air without corroding. A titanium watch is comfortable to wear because it’s light on the wrist. It’s not affected by extreme temperatures and remains comfortable even when the skin perspires under the case.

Titanium is preferred for the strength it offers as well as the weight savings over steel – it is a less dense metal – but wearers must be keen to be careful with a titanium if they are looking to maintain that new watch look. Often bringing with it connotations of high-tech endeavors like Formula 1 and aerospace engineering where titanium is commonly used, the metal is frequently found in sporty, technical watches, combined with other high tech materials like ceramic and carbon fiber.

All in all, a titanium watch is a strong and durable type of watch to own. It is offered with a wide variety of functions, styles and options. Titanium is even hypoallergenic, which means it is appropriate for people with any skin type, even sensitive skin.

The Bulgari watch, Beyond the Limit Constantly

For some people who are not crazy with watches, from the first sight on a watch, he may make such a sentence “Wow, I think all the watches are the same, they have hour markers, hour hand, minute hand and second hand, working. “ This is common phenomenon. Because the wrist watch has low potentiality on its appearance actually, many people think that’s too hard to change it into something we have ever seen before. Therefore, the nowadays Replica Watches for Sale will focus on the inner pieces to make it created into something fresh. A famous brand, Bulgari, have presented Octo series which features skeleton design and ultra-thin body, Let me show you.

The Bulgari Octo Finissimo

I guess some Bulgari lovers knew that tourbillon watch 2014 model and Minute Repeater watch 2016 model, the both are surprised us for long time. However, the Bulgari continue to launch a brand new skeleton tourbillon watch Octo Finissimo Automatic watch whose thickness is only 5.15mm and dimension is 40mm, winning public’s eye successful. The Octo’s birth makes the watch-making craftsmanship up to another limit!

Let’s see the extremely thin body showing the complicated craftsmanship. Can you imagine how careful work needed? Each part, each piece, even a slight piece will be considered comprehensively so as to create the ultra-thin sense of the super watch. That means, the mechanical pieces inside the watch, the cases and dial, the bezel what you can see on the watch, are created from paper to reality. The ultra-thin design relies on the size of watch and sophisticated process on the shape, but also inseparable from delicate skills in this area. What the ultra-thin watch conveys is philosophy, a thought of Paring down to the essence, which renders minimalism vividly through the strong design.

Purity and complex

The Octo is the perfect example of contemporary design, stands in front of Bulgari watches. From the point of my view, the novel case presents strong and eye-catching sense of design under the extreme purity and extreme complex.  The inspiration of its appearance is from the Italia Master building design; the connotation shows the bloods of Roman completely. This kind of complicated design shows the superb control on material and shape and plays the light and perspective effects cleverly. Sparkling, people will never be tired of it. In order to strengthen the light sense of titanium, alligator leather with titanium buckle and interlocking soft titanium bracelet are offered on this model for the selection. In order to ensure the rationality of design and fashion effects, the hands and hour markers have been coating by black PVD.

Movement

Fake sake of driving the Octo Finissimo Automatic, the Bulgari created a brand new movement – BVL 138, 2.23 thickness, which should be the thinnest automatic movement in the markets. In order to keep the power adjustments, the frequency is up to21.600 times/hour, the power reserve is up to 60 hours. The depth of waterproof is 30 meters, that’s good enough for a skeleton watch, the watch is better not to touch water after all.

In order to add some appropriate gorgeous d decoration to this movement, the Octo selects platinum material is the watchcase. The famous philosopher Immanuel Kant said:” the appearance is in separable from the arts and skills: reality, calm and simple.” the Octo Finissimo annotated his idea vividly. Don’t you think so? Even the name “Finissimo” is meaningful – Promise and dream, Just like the appearance saying.

Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Watch

Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Watch


Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Watch Watch Releases


The Germans have a reputation for efficiency and engineering prowess, and these two qualities are also reflected in their watchmaking sensibilities. A good example is Glashütte Original’s Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar. Perpetual calendars are one of the most useful complications, but because they need to display so much information – the time, day, date, month, leap year – some perpetual calendar watches can also be difficult to read. This isn’t a problem with the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar because instead of using the more traditional subdials, this watch displays all the calendar information through simple, highly legible windows. Now, there’s a new version. Let us tell you what has changed.


Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Watch Watch Releases


The Senator collection is Glashütte Original’s most timeless and classic, so it is no surprise that the new Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar looks so elegant. Available in stainless steel and red gold, the case size is a modern, if slightly large, 42mm. A defining feature of older Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar (as reviewed here) was the use of Roman numerals on the dial as well the railroad minutes track. In the new version, the railroad minutes track makes a return, and Roman numerals are still used, but only at 12 and 6 o’clock. The rest of the hours are marked out by simple black indexes. This, I think, helps the watch look less stuffy.

Both stainless steel and red gold versions will come with blued hands, which contrast brightly against their silver-grained dials. The hands are pear-shaped, and the seconds hand features the Glashütte Original logo as a counterweight.

In the Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar, the day, date, and month are displayed using windows around the dial. Just like the model it replaces, there’s the brand’s signature Panorama Date display at 4 o’clock, while the day and month displays are positioned at 10 and 2 o’clock, respectively. An aperture displaying the moon phase is positioned at 8 o’clock. An interesting detail is that the moon on the moon phase indicator matches the case material. For the red gold model that means a red gold moon; and for the stainless steel model, a white gold moon.

What’s new on the latest Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar is the leap year indicator. On the older model, it used to be a tiny aperture right about at the center of the dial. On the new model, there’s a larger leap-year indicator that is displayed using a more traditional sub-dial fashion. As a result, the Glashütte Original logo is moved to the 3 o’clock position. Personally, I’m indifferent to this change. The dial does look a tad busier, but the new leap-year indicator is certainly more functional. That said, how many people would need to know if the current year is a leap year or not?


Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Watch Watch Releases


The biggest change is under the dial. Inside the new Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar is a new movement based on the Calibre 36, which was introduced last year. The Calibre 36 will be the brand’s new workhorse movement and modules will be developed for it to add complications. Already, there’s a version with a Panorama date display and another with a moon phase display.


Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Watch Watch Releases


The Calibre 36 enables the new Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar to run at a very modern 4Hz. It is an automatic movement and features a very long power reserve of 100 hours. This is made possible using a single barrel with an exceptionally long 68cm mainspring developed by Nivarox – one of Glashütte Original’s Swatch stablemates. The movement also looks handsomely decorated with its large rotor and attractively embellished third-quarter plate.

Overall, I think the new Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar will certainly delight fans of German watchmaking because it wholly embodies the Germans’ love of functionality and efficiency. If you think traditional perpetual calendars are too difficult to read, the new Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar will impress with its remarkable legibility. The Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar in stainless steel with an alligator strap is priced at $22,300. On a bracelet, it is $23,800. The Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar in red gold with matching pin buckle is $35,100, and with a deployant clasp, it will be $37,100glashuette-original.com
