Vintage Omega Seamaster 120 replica watch

When talking about rarity in Omegas, everything is relative. A rare Patek will be one of perhaps 5 or 10 examples, a rare Rolex one of a few hundred. A rare Omega is in the thousands – with millions of watches produced over the decades, something that was made in a run of 20 or 30 thousand pieces is relatively uncommon compared to a series of several hundred thousand. So when someone touts his or her particular watch as “rare” don’t expect it to be one of a handful that will never come up again. It’s more likely just an uncommon model that the seller didn’t happen to see on eBay at the time he put up his listing.

I know I have done a lot of reviews on vintage watches here, but you know, these vintage watches are my favorites, many blog readers also asked me a lot of other vintage brand watches that were not reviewed here, but not all of them are produced by the factory, here I recommend you two top quality ones, Daytona Paul Newman and Sea-Dweller Double Red. This one I am going to give a review is a vintage Omega Seamaster, on its dial, there are printings of “Seamaster 120”, actually I do not know the meaning of digit “120”, does it mean that the watch is water resistant to 120 metres? And I have another question, was it produced in 1968?

Whatever, it is a great replica with every detail closely replicated to genuine. The movement is the best, because it adopted a genuine Japanese automatic, which is Miyota 8215. This imported movement has a better accuracy and reliability than other clone automatic movements. This is not a large watch, which only features a 38.5mm case diameter. Black bezel is diver’s style and has white markings. Black dial is protected by plexi crystal face like genuine. The hour markers and hands are all applied with good quality luminescence that could give a long durable lume light at night.

To meet the whole vintage style, the factory uses a suede grey leahter strap for this replica, the outside face of the band gives a hairy feeling, while the inside is smooth leather. Solid case back has an unqie Seamaster logo that is different from modern logo’s appearance. These engravings on back are also very clear and neat. Because of not that large case diameter, this watch could fulfill the wrist size of most men, plus its movement with low repairing rate, the replica watch will be a good choice for every man who wants to find the vintage feel.

How did mechanical-watch king Rolex deal with the arrival of quartz in the 1970s?

Rolex made just 4,000 Oysterquartz watches per year.

How did mechanical-watch king Rolex deal with the arrival of quartz in the 1970s? What follows is an excerpt from the book “Electrifying the Wristwatch,” by WatchTime contributor Lucien Trueb. The book, illustrated with photos of pieces from watch collectors Günther Ramm and Peter Wenzig, tells how quartz-watch technology evolved.André Heiniger, second Rolex president and successor of the founder Hans Wilsdorf, was a true visionary. His opinion was that the originally very costly quartz watch would soon be totally banal. This already had happened with transistor radios, TV sets, and pocket calculators.

Top-quality mechanical movements would always remain expensive and exclusive due to the large amount of highly qualified labor that is required for manufacturing the parts and assembling them. The inescapable fact that a mechanical device can only tell time approximately could be easily hidden by writing “Superlative Chronometer, Officially Certified” on the dial. This means a daily rate of plus-six/minus-four seconds per day. In due time, every watch brand in the “upscale” sector copied Heiniger’s concept. Wealthy people don’t need an instrument that tells time: they want a beautiful and exclusive object on their wrist.

Rolex developed several technically advanced quartz movements that never got beyond the prototype stage. The most interesting of them certainly was a thermo-compensated quartz caliber that was developed in 1985. Design studies were made with extremely stable high frequency (1.2 MHz and 2.4 MHz) quartz resonators with the ZT cut. The CEH produced those resonators and delivered 1,000 pieces in 1984. In 1986, Rolex built 50 prototypes but there was no production, even though the yearly rate was just a few seconds. Another very ingenious quartz caliber with a perpetual calendar had the same fate. It was set in a particularly easy way; it also featured a 2.4 MHz quartz resonator with ZT cut as well as a standard 32 kHz resonator. As the ZT quartz and its divider circuit needed a lot of power, it was only switched on every 10 minutes for 10 seconds in order to set the 32 kHz frequency. An extraordinary rate and a battery life of 10 years were achieved with a three-volt lithium battery that measured 22.0 mm by 2.5 mm. The 30-mm caliber featured three motors for the seconds, the minutes and hour, and the day/date function, respectively. This design was patented; the patent became public domain in 2011. A test series of 400 pieces was assembled, but there was no production; none of those prototypes ever left the Rolex premises.

Rolex GMT Master II

The Rolex GMT timepieces are definitely the professional group of wrist watches. It was built in the year of The late 90s towards the Basel Fair. Rolex is usually a name which is pertaining to setting masculine fashion models. Rolex GMT Master II is among the most most deluxe watches in the earth. Unique features of GMT comprises as follows :- Standard case magnitude of 40mm- Self-winding machine- Turning bezel- Ceramic Bezels- An anti-scratch synthetic sapphire gem that has a slim appearance.- Triple lock system presenting another coating of shield to the Oyster case. It offers a superior a triple gasket system which screws down solidly over the case tube and then to the Oyster case.- For sale in 18 karat yellow gold, steel and Rolex. Apart from above capabilities, the choice of black bezel together with black dial is also most stylish in such model. The aesthetic developments which Rolex has brought in the wrist watches with the well stylish machinery have saved the business from the idea of fake replica swiss wrist watches. This business has got security measures engraved included in the watches which include SKU numbers. The bi-directional rotating bezel in the Rolex GMT designer watches allows the individual to observe the time into 2 special timezones concurrently.

The Rolex GMT was designed as an aviator watch: The newly introduced fourth hand allowed the display of an additional time, with the corresponding numbermarkings on the outer bezel. Pilots used the second time to display the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which led to the name Rolex GMT Master. Altough Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) got replaced 1972 in the Aviation Industry by Coordinated Universal Time , the term GMT is still known and kept as part of the name of the GMT Master, altough Pilots nowadays use it to set UTC.


The Rolex Air-King, for most of its very long history, was the simplest, least expensive Rolex, but also in some ways the purist’s Rolex. With no date, a 100 m water resistant case, screw-down crown, and chronometer certification, it had every essential attribute that makes a Rolex , with no distractions. In 2014, however, it was discontinued, and its status as the entry level Rolex as well as the purist’s Rolex was taken in 2015 by a new version of the Oyster Perpetual. In 2016, however, the Air-King returned and it is emphatically not your father’s Air-King. With a 40 mm case, new “Superlative Chronometer” certification, complete overhaul to the dial, and the same arrangements for resistance to magnetism as the Milgauss, it may be an Air-King in name, but in the hand and on the wrist, it’s an almost entirely new watch.

The Black dial rolex oyster perpetual air king replica watch ref. 116900 features a dial very similar to that on the Rolex Explorer I ref. 214270 we reviewed here; but this time, including a white minute scale with white numerals. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 features a black glossy dial with applied hour numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 is fitted with the legendary Oyster bracelet with satin-brushed finish. The bracelet features solid links throughout and is fitted with a folding Oysterclasp equipped with the Easylink system that allows the wearer to extend the last link on the bracelet by 5 mm.

The watch is waterproof to 100 meters and its movement is properly protected by its Twinlock screw-down crown and its screwed-in solid case back. The watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal with Rolex’s etched coronet at 6 o’clock. Perhaps the biggest difference of this clasp versus all other modern clasps on Rolex Sports models, is that the Rolex coronet —crown— is this time embossed on bas-relief —low-relief— opposed to being applied and soldered to the clasp.

In fact, it’s such a departure from what we’ve all gotten used to thinking of as an Air-King that I almost wish Rolex had named it something else. The retention of the Air-King name means that you have to struggle a little when you first see pictures of the watch – or when you start wearing it – to see it as its own thing, instead of through the veil of years of exposure to something else that had the same name. What is the same, however – Rolex being pretty good at not totally disrupting the connection of any of its watches to earlier models in particular, and to the basic design codes of the company in particular – is the Air-King logo, as if to reassure the skittish that underneath it all, the Air-King is the same purist’s watch you knew and loved once upon a time.



2016 Basel Watch Fair, Rolex released a new ceramic ring Daytona is welcomed by the public, but the introduction of new Air-King Air King 116900 is completely beyond everyone’s expectations. Black surface 369 plus every 5 minutes of the digital scale, table diameter 40mm, into a typical appearance of the flight table.

Rolex’s “Air-King Overlord”, is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Series of the most basic entry watch, only the most basic junior needle, no calendar window, the price is also the most approachable. It is also the oldest Rolex watches, dating back to the 1950s. Since then, Rolex Oyster Perpetual has been in the aviation business has played an important role in the period; it is accompanied by the first flight across Everest; a year later, from London to Melbourne, a record return flight also flashed It’s shadow.

Rolex Air King 116900 solid steel strap and oyster-style clasp and Rolex Explorer is exactly the same, but pricing is cheaper, for 5700 euros, Explorer pricing for 6000 euros, compared to the same magnetic properties of MILGUASS cheap 20 %, Which makes it a truly super-cost-effective entry Rolex watches.

The new rolex replica watch ref. 116900 is fitted with a 904L stainless steel case measuring 40 mm in diameter and paired with the signature Rolex Oyster bracelet and a smooth polished bezel. The watch is waterproof to 100 meters and its movement is properly protected by its Twinlock screw-down crown and its screwed-in solid case back. The watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal with Rolex’s etched coronet at 6 o’clock. Perhaps the biggest difference of this clasp versus all other modern clasps on Rolex Sports models, is that the Rolex coronet —crown— is this time embossed on bas-relief —low-relief— opposed to being applied and soldered to the clasp.

Panerai’s Glowing Radiomir Paint

The radium on the original dials is still radioactive today, and will continue to be so for another millennium and a half

Now, radium itself doesn’t glow, but its radiation can excite the electrons in a phosphorescent material like zinc sulphide, which then emits energy as light. This was the basis of Panerai’s glowing Radiomir paint, which it patented in 1916. Note the Italian for ‘patented’, Brevettato, as seen on this Radiomir 685 1938 re-edition. Across the Atlantic in America, meanwhile, and a slew of radium-based paint brands were springing up. Radium was the most expensive material by weight in the world at the time, and the demand was huge. Factories employed thousands of ladies to apply this glowing paint to many different products, including watch dials. When the girls left the factories at night, they themselves glowed. At the time, it was considered a perk.

Unfortunately, this lethal phenomenon wasn’t fully understood until Marie Curie committed her life—both figuratively and literally—to researching it. Curie in fact coined the term ‘radiation’ herself, from the Latin radius, meaning ‘ray’. What she eventually determined was that radioactive materials like radium emit beams of electromagnetic radiation from the decay of atomic nuclei. These rays are ionizing, which gives them the ability to strip electrons from atoms. The most powerful of these rays were known as gamma rays—the type the radium emitted.

The Panerai Radiomir 687 is a modern replication of the destructive effect of gamma radiation. What would have started out looking like the 685 when it was new has discoloured thanks to the endless bombardment of radiation from the radium-based paint. Radium has a half-life—the amount of time it takes for radioactivity to fall to half its original value—of 1,600 years; a single watch remains lethal for generations.

Imagine what that kind of destructive energy could do to a human, and in far larger doses. The ‘Radium Girls’, as the dial-painters were known, quickly started showing gruesome symptoms. First, their teeth would begin to rot from where they pointed the tips of their brushes in their mouths. The teeth could then be pulled out without resistance. Their gums then ulcerated and their jawbones crumbled. Their skin thinned, tearing easily. Eventually, their insides would haemorrhage, and they would die.

It wasn’t until the late 1930s that the surviving girls won their case against the companies that had inflicted the paint upon them. When investigators exhumed the body of a factory girl who had died five years earlier—whose cause of death had been recorded as syphilis—and found her still glowing, there was no questioning what had happened.

Iwc Big Pilot Limited Editions Replica Watches

Forever Replica Watches — The Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 48 looksvery much like the historic original of 1940, but makes a few more concessions to modern ideas of aesthetics and comfort.

The Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 48 (Ref. IW510301) makes more concessions to modern-day aesthetics and concepts of comfort. And that, of course, begins with its size. On the wrist, the 48-millimetre case is particularly impressive and is guaranteed to attract inquisitive glances at the office or the dinner table. The watch is suited to everyday use thanks primarily to its light titanium, which reduces its weight to 120 grams.

In all honesty I’m not certain that it bodes well to call a 48 mm watch “more commonsense” or “more wearable” – I mean, in for a dime, in for a dollar; I think this is most likely more an issue of the amount of an announcement you need to make, instead of reasonableness in essence (about which we’ll have significantly more to say once the entire accumulation makes a big appearance in the not so distant future). The Big Pilot’s Heritage IWC Replica Watches 48 resemble the 55 in its titanium case (48 mm x 14.5 mm) and its utilization of an antimagnetic delicate iron internal case. Be that as it may, the development is distinctive; the Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 48 utilizes the IWC gauge 59215, which is the same development utilized as a part of the Portuguiser Hand-Wound 8 Days. The 48 likewise has a date show (not at all like the 55).

Accordingly, the iwc replica watches has an eight-day power hold; the parity keeps running at a current 28,800 vph, in 30 gems, with stop seconds. The IWC Fake Watches force store is situated on the back of the development, and to permit it to be seen there’s a little survey port for the situation back; this is sufficiently little that antimagnetic protecting isn’t bargained.
