Superstar quarterback Tom Brady may be loyal to only one NFL team in the replica watches world, the six-time super bowl champion just switched sides. IWC Schaffhausen lately announced that Tom Brady has become their official brand ambassador.
That surprised some, since Tom Brady has been a brand ambassador for TAG Heuer since 2015. Tag heuer’s special edition ‘Tom Brady’ Carrera chronograph is in New England Patriot colors and comes with his signature. We can only assume that his contract with TAG is over and the IWC has signed him up on its growing list of sponsors.
Tom Brady has been seen wearing many different IWC replica watches this year. At the Met Gala in May, he was photographed wearing the “longest flight” version of the latest timepiece, Spitfire, as well as the limited edition version of the Portuguese calendar 150 years. In addition, Brady’s personal collection includes a pilot watch called TOP GUN Miramar, according to IWC.
In terms of the new partnership, Tom Brady said: “I am honored to be working with IWC Schaffhausen, a brand I have long desired, not only for their timeless design, but also for their precise engineering and attention to detail.””I am delighted to be part of the IWC family and look forward to working with their talented team to share the brand’s unique legacy around the world.”
Tom Brady joins a growing list of IWC brand ambassadors, including Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper and five-time formula one world champion Lewis Hamilton. While we can’t imagine the Schaffhausen watchmaker launching a replica watch in memory of Tom Brady, the brand is “looking forward to revitalizing their partnership with many exciting new products”.
It’s no secret that top Swiss watch brands are vying to dominate the U.S. market, and despite the sport’s turmoil, soccer is king in those areas. Maybe in the near future, we’ll see more NFL players become brand ambassadors.
There is a distinct engraving known as the Omega Seahorse on the caseback of certain Omega watches. Have you ever wondered where this unique emblem came from? Today we will help unveil the fact. The hippocampi were sea monsters with the heads of horses and the lower bodies of fish in Greek mythology. They bear some resemblance to the seahorse creatures we know today – actually, the genus of the seahorse is Hippocampus.
It is said that Poseidon, the god of the sea drove a chariot drawn by hippocampi. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to ride a gondola through the canals of Venice in Italy, you may have noticed a pair of metal ornamental hippocampi on each side of the boat. These are meant to be a symbol of protection for the gondolas, drivers, and passengers.
In the 1950s, an engraver by the name of Jean-Pierre Borle was working at Omega. He was the craftsman behind the famed “Observatory” emblem found on the caseback of the Omega Constellation, which depicts an observatory and eight stars. The illustration stands for the location of chronometer trials and the eight stars denote the number of chronometric records that fake Omega broke in 1931.
Jean-Pierre Borle took a trip to Venice and noticed the hippocampi on the gondolas. These seahorse-like statues served as inspiration for his next engraving. In 1958, the hippocampus became the symbol of the replica Omega Seamaster as a means to signify the watch’s water resistant capabilities.
It’s interesting to note that Omega replica watches refers to this logo as a “seahorse” when it is clearly a hippocampus, complete with bridles. Early versions of the Omega Seahorse logo were etched into casebacks, which eventually evolved into a more intricate embossing of the emblem, similar to what is found on the contemporary watches that Omega sells today.
While it first made an appearance on the Seamaster, the hippocampus symbol did not remain exclusive to the Seamaster collection. Omega began using their seahorse insignia on some of their other tool watch models, such as the Railmaster and Speedmaster – also as a manes to denote their impressive water resistance. Today, you can find the Omega seahorse logo on select models, which remains an important and historic symbol of the brand.
Franck Muller’s watch is rarely unknown. No matter how you feel about the brand, the striking, curvy shape of the tonneau case needs attention. I’ve always thought of Franck Muller as a brand that fills a specific niche. It is, at least in my view, a more lustrous, classically influenced precious metal that corresponds to Richard Mille’s high-tech futurism. These watches are for people who want to talk about their cheap replica watches. If you want to make sure your conversation starts, what is the better way to paint your watch bright green or bright yellow? This is exactly the strategy explored by frank muller’s pioneering racing v45 SC DT watch, which we will examine for ourselves in this article.
What defines the Racing Collection as outstanding from previous Vanguard iterations may not be clear enough, given that the eye is unavoidably drawn to the dial before the case. It is, however, in the latter’s silhouette that the difference can be found. The colored and flared flanks not only give this case a far more aggressive edge than the normal Vanguard, but they also tie the whole color design together. In addition, these colored flashes continue the vibrant sportiness of the interior on the outside of the case.
As far as I am concerned, the addition of a brightly colored crown guard is an excellent step. I have always found the standard Franck Muller silhouette to be bit too feminine for my tastes, even given the rather enormous sizes stretched to by some of the more recent models. The new, updated jaggedness of the Vanguard Racing Collection’s exterior is a huge improvement, in my book.
The case is available in two materials: the stainless steel cases pictured in this article or an 18k rose gold housing, which also comes with two dial variations. The dimensions of both are the same. The bold, form-fitting Arabic numerals are applied to the dial to add depth. Beautifully machined, with sharp, clean edges to die for, these numerals are a big part of this design
The Franck Muller Vanguard Racing collection is powered by caliber FM 2800-DT. It is a self-winding mechanical movement with a diameter of 25. 60 mm, and a thickness of 3. 6 mm. In addition to that fine flourish, the movement boasts some different styles of finishing, including Geneva waves, circular graining, diamond polishing, sunray brushing, and 45-degree polishing, as well as heat-blued polished screws.
While the white-dial version with black accents is a very cool watch, neither of the valuable metal variants feel quite as comfortable in their skin as the two steel models. I think this is because of the steel’s suitability for sports replica watches and the stylistic incongruity created by pairing a luxurious metal like 18k rose gold with such a vibrant, edgy design.
Let’s get started right away: The new Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin 15202BC feathers an unique “salmon dial,” and that is not officially named. Look at the renderings provided by Audemars Piguet, and you can see that the dial is tend to be brownish or pink gold color. AP’s official description of the dial is “pink gold-tone dial.” Of course, it’s no problem to call it salmon, but what the exact meaning of it?
The replica watch has a 39mm warm gold dial with white gold indicators and hands. Using Audemars Piguet’s 2121 automatic movement, the 15202BC ticks at 19,900 vph, has a 40-hour power reserve and is only 8mm in thickness. I had seen the 15202BC in person and wrote a introduction about it. I still stick to my assertion that precious metal Royal Oaks were very impressive, and this one is not an exception.
In my opinion, this new watch is salmon-like, if you compare its color to an example like the 25820PT, I think you’ll get where my opinion is coming from. To make comparison, I’ve included a shot of our own fearless leader’s 25820PT below. The date window is more pink in color that this gold-tone example of Audemars Piguet replica the “Petite Tapisserie” dial.
While I think it’s reasonable to say that the color difference is not so large, the 15202BC is obviously more brownish than pink. Brief history lesson aside, the new watch is limited to just 75 pieces, so SIHH is possible the only chance that I’ll ever have one on wrist. As you can imagine, I made the most of the opportunity.
The 39mm size is just perfect and, as I wrote in the introduction, there is something really impressive about the weight and feel of a precious metal Royal Oak. While I may sing the praises of a full gold version, there is something undeniably striking and exquisite about the combination of this gold-tone dial and white gold case. It feels good and looks great.
The replica watches not only proves the high technique of Audemars Piguet’s, but it’s also basically just a color variation of an existing model. Nevertheless, it is an impressive collectible boutique-only limited edition that is going to be almost impossible to purchase on market. With only 75 units distributed to 50 or so boutiques that Audemars Piguet operates around the world, most boutiques will only have one piece, it means that you had better be their best client if you want to buy it. Priced at 55,400 USD, it’s exquisite, thin, and all about the wrist presence, so if you’re expecting to build some annual interest in an aesthetic that remains mostly unchanged after nearly 50 years, this is a good format that I can imagine.
