Bell&Ross WW1 Cabinet deCuriosités
Belrose joined Thomas Erber as one of the few brands selected by Hôtel de Crillon’s curiosity cabinet.
Hôtel de Crillon’s curiosity was created by Thomas Erber for those who are looking for luxury and uniquely designed. This is an ideal place for limited edition fans because the models they exhibit are designed specifically for this Parisian palace.
Belrose created a limited edition design inspired cigar for 10 watches: the Vintage WW1 Edicion Limitada. Its 42 mm rose gold case perfectly blends with the brown dial and strap, reminiscent of Havana cigars, and links between watchmaking and cigars. Its manual winding movement provides a five-day power reserve. Bell&Ross chose to place this watch in an ebony box, which can also be used as a humidor with an integrated humidifier and hygrometer.Buy cheap Richard Mille RM 011 Le Mans Classic Watch
In order to celebrate the French way of life, Belrose added a red sculpture on the back of the watch, the latter has a transparent sapphire crystal glass, showing movement through its three-quarters board and balance bridge. The inscription of Hôtel de Crillon is surrounded by the text “Cabinet deCuriosités Thomas Erber pour l’hôtel de Crillon”.
Modern Retro Eyes: Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special
Today’s watches are so unique in appearance that it is hard to believe that they have played such a pivotal role in the development of all pilot watches and therefore play an important role in the wider world of watches. The modern Zenith Pilot, a historical tradition, is such a collection that occupies an important position in the early days of aviation and influenced the early design of the pilot’s watch – while also maintaining the popularity of high-end watch enthusiasts in the modern era.wholesale cheap watches for sale
The history of Zenith Pilot began in 1909 when Louis Blériot became the first person to fly over the English Channel from the British Channel from Calais to Dover, England. It was just an early, somewhat generic Zenith watch tied to him. On the wrist. This achievement, although quite common, has immortal value in the development of early aviation, proving the possibility of long-haul air travel and the successful accomplishment of a monoplane compared to the previously popular biplane. Success inevitably led to Blériot’s name becoming a legend in aviation history and cementing the Zenith brand and its tested performance in flight. The zenith quickly utilized a series of on-board chronographs produced by this association, especially the 1939 model 20 Monte Carlo, which is based in part on the modern Zenith Pilot watch.
The Pilot watch we focus on today is the Extra 20 Special (Ref. 03.2430.3000 / 21.C738, see below). As its name suggests, this 45mm steel or bronze shell is even more special. With its relatively large case, intricate back cover, large onion crown and straight utility lugs – this work shares many details with today’s other pilot watches, while presenting a unique, retro-style performance.Review cheap Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 Gulf CAW211R.FC6401 Watch
On the matt black dial is eye-catching, bright white Arabic numerals; Zenith’s company logo and “Montre D’Aéronef, type 20” near 12 o’clock; and “Pilot” and “Extra Special” above 6 o’clock. It features a black rhodium-plated and satin steel dial and incorporates Zenith’s automatic Calibre 3000, one of the brand’s many internal movements. It features early 20th-century inspired cathedral hands. Provides about 42 hours of power storage.
Although this watch has a variety of historical inspiration, it is part of Zenith’s commemoration of its past – especially its connection with Bleriot – but it is not meant to recreate it. In turn, this piece features vintage-inspired hands and Arabic numerals, but also makes the onion crown closer to the case than the historical model – it’s a more practical design choice than the crown of those earlier watch bulges. In addition, this watch uses an automatic movement hidden under the engraving dial case; this is the transformation of the Pilot watch made by Zenith in the past few years, it uses the historic 50 mm manual winding Calibre 5011 k, often Behind the display.cheap HUBLOT MASTERPIECE MP 05 LAFERRARI GOLD 905.VX.0001.RX watch
Other notable areas are retro-grooved bezels and round cases, while “Extra Special” focuses more on the relatively flat Spartan case and bezel. Finally, pay attention to the name: “Extra Special”. In the original works produced by Blériot, the dial read only as “special”; “Extra” means once again that this is a work that respects and separates from the past – it has some extra things that have not been provided before.
Overall, I found the entire Zenith Pilot watch series quite interesting. Although the design elements emphasized in the series were very common at the beginning of the 20th century, the brand is still one of the few brands still offered to consumers by luxury watch manufacturers. In comparison, although many other brands of pilot watches have similar classic “pilot” elements – such as sturdy steel casings, large numbers, onion crowns and large diameters – rarely antique fonts, funny retro hands and history inspiration. These features have become synonymous with the Zenith Pilot Watch. When Patek Philippe releases its Calatrava Pilot travel time, the picture is as follows (similar to the inspiration of earlier watches) – many people point out that it has similarities with Zenith’s watches, especially in numbers and hands . This is a comparison. I believe that few brands will be disappointed.shopping cheap Tonino Lamborghini watches
