Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu Limited Edition
Hublot announced its latest high-profile partnership during the week of Madison Avenue Watch in New York on April 20th – and launched its latest limited-edition watch. The new Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is a completely redesigned version of the brand’s Big Bang Unico. Its dial design and timing system was inspired by Swiss artist Maxime Büchi.
Big Bang Sang Bleu received a French surname from the magazine and contemporary design brand founded by Buchi in 2006. The watch’s direct impression – its sharp lines and hexagonal bezel give it a highly geometric three-dimensional appearance, with a key aesthetic in Büchi’s tattoo art. His celebrity clients include Kanye West and Adam Lambert. This “glass and metal sculpture” design is modified with a matt black dial. The wide black satin circular flange is engraved with hour digits and semicolons, created by Büchi’s own font design agency.shopping Greubel Forsey GMT watches replica
As for dialing itself and how to read it, people will notice that it lacks any type of regular hour, minute or second hand. Instead, time is displayed by superimposing three rhodium-plated octagonal disks. This arrangement again evokes the design theme of Beech Body Art. The largest disc represents hours, while the smallest disc represents minutes. The time to make time for reading is the tip of the triangle, the octagon of each hour and minute, which is highlighted on the white Super-LumiNova. The stopwatch reads more subtle, marking the Hublot “H” and Sang Bleu’s stylized hourglass pattern in the center of the black disk.
The watch’s 45mm case is made of satin-polished and polished titanium and features Büchi’s signature geometric lines and shapes. The design extends seamlessly into the black calfskin strap, which is sewn to the rubber and heat-stained in a gradient from black to gray. The strap’s rubber interior is also engraved with the Sang Bleu logo.RICHARD MILLE RM 67-02 AUTOMATIC ALEXIS PINTURAULT replica watch
Greubel Forsey Signature 1, an impeccable time watch
Greubel Forsey went all out with his entry-level Signature 1 and built and completed it to level n.
Entry-level watches are all the rage now, even for watchmakers like Greubel Forsey, an exquisite and expensive tourbillon watch expert. The Signature 1 launched at SIHH 2016 earlier this year is the entry-level Greubel Forsey. Signature 1 does not have any complications but only time, but the quality of construction and finishing is impeccable, which is comparable to Greubel Forsey’s high-priced timepieces.
The signature 1 is manually wound, showing hours, minutes, and seconds. Despite its simple function, the dial looks slightly more complicated in the typical style of Greubel Forsey. The time is on the eccentric small dial, and the gold wheels of the gear train are exposed.
A person’s eyes are immediately pulled toward a large balance of about 13mm in diameter, fixed by a long steel bridge. Although the visual effect of the watch is not extraordinary, Signature 1 is very handsome.
Even more impressive is the quality of the watch. The manual processing of this movement is excellent. Each component, even the smallest and most hidden bit, is completed to a very high degree. Take blue steel hands, all of which have a mirror polished, bowl-shaped countersunk center. Although the dial looks very flat, it is actually a silver plated pure gold. Even if the edge of the dial is tilted, the tiny incision at the 7 o’clock position accommodates the balance wheel, which is a pleasant detail.luxury replica Urwerk watches
Another delicious detail is the bridge of the escape wheel, which is located below the balance bridge. Although hardly visible, the top and side ruled lines are still finished and polished bevels on all edges – the beveled side of the screw head secures it.
Although Greubel Forsey’s standard is slightly more, Signature 1 is not a small table. Its diameter is 41.4 mm and is slightly less than 12 mm thick. Even in the case of stainless steel, its volume is large enough to meet its presence and weight. The case was also carefully completed and the neat brush surface was separated by a polished bevel.
On the contrary, finishing is even more impressive because there is more to see. Although not complicated, the structure of the movement has exhibited most of the mechanics. The black coated master board is used as a canvas and the bridge is cut off to reveal the underlying assembly. In the upper left corner is a bucket. At the top is a striking zig-zag ratchet under the three-legged barrel bridge. The size and shape of the barrel bridge gives it a sense of architecture, a quality that is common in the Greubel Forsey movement.
The style of this movement is inspired by the antique pocket watch movement. All bridges have a smooth matte surface with a wide polished bevel on the edges. Most bridges have a straight line profile, although there are enough inward sharp corners between them to meet the requirements of the finishing enthusiast.
As expected, the spokes and rims of all gears are beveled, and the jewelry is set in gold diamonds, and the screws are neatly polished and chamfered.www.reviewbestselling.com
Signature 1 is the first of a series of watches created by a watchmaker working by Greubel Forsey. Didier J.G. Cretin is the watchmaker who conceived of Signature 1, which is why his name is repeated twice on the front and back of the watch. Messrs Greubel and Forsey’s names are also repeated twice, front and back, which may not be necessary.
Taking into account the undeniable quality of sports, this issue seems to be a little unsatisfactory. However, the price of Signature 1 is still the same as that of a small apartment.
One detail that can be improved – although it is perfectly done – is the balance bridge. It has a black finish on the top and a polished bevel along its length, with superbly pointed corners on both ends. As in the Patek Philippe reference, a more time-consuming finishing method is to round the outline of the bridge. For example, the 5101 10-day Tourbillon.
Greubel Forsey is known for its incredible exotic tourbillon watch. Most Greubel Forsey watches can be the best convincing argument in their respective categories – they are really great.
On the other hand, Signature 1 feels a bit of a compromise compared to everything else that Greubel Forsey does. This is a problem that Greubel Forsey created for himself. The setting bar is too high. In fact, Signature 1 alternatives such as Voutilainen Vingt-8 are widely considered to be the best, which further exacerbates this problem.
The price of Signature 1 in steel is half that of the next most expensive Greubel Forsey watch, which is a tourbillon. Compared to other brands of products, the signature 1 seems to be a good deal, but it is still difficult to mark this value as money.
Signature 1 issued a limited edition of 33 stainless steel watches, and 11 white or rose gold and platinum, a total of 66 watches.buy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph watches replica
