Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2

A new chronograph joins the line of Master Compressor Extreme LAB Breitling replica watches online, a collection distinguished by precise and reliable time measurement. The Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 embodies a combination of scientific materials, cutting-edge materials and horological research. Better still, the master Artisans of Jaeger-LeCoultre have breathed into it their passion for pushing ever further the limits of the world around us.

The Manufacture systematically applies a fundamental principle to all its creations: however complex a high quality replica Breitling watches, it makes no compromises when it comes to functionality and pragmatism. This new model thus combines extremely sophisticated ergonomics with the precision and reliability that are a must at Jaeger-LeCoultre. The Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 features a crown- integrated function selector that handles especially smoothly, a patented digital counter to indicate the chronograph jumping seconds, a manual stop seconds device, a radial power-reserve indication and a GMT function enabling at-a-glance readings. Its movement is housed in a sturdy case made of a light and resistant TiVan15 titanium alloy. It is fitted with a high-tech ultra scratch- resistant ceramic bezel. Pushpieces specially designed to ensure optimal user friendless provide a broad surface coated with rubber grooves and serve as a crown guard. A fast strap-change system is incorporated into the caseback and the new double pin buckle provides unprecedented length adjustment ensuring a perfect fit on the wrist.

The Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 is designed to be a reliable and easily manoeuverable companion. The watchmakers of the Manufacture have succeeded in simplifying its handling while guaranteeing precision and reliability. To ensure access to the various Breitling replica watches functions whatever the conditions of wear, they have developed a function selector and an independent stop-seconds mechanism.

The function selector

Activated by means of a crown-integrated pushpiece, the function selector serves to adjust all functions without involving the inevitably delicate operation of pulling out the crown. Once the function is selected, the adjustment can be made by simply turning the crown. When the latter is in “neutral” position, the crown serves to wind the barrels. One press takes the user to the position required to adjust the dual time-zone display as well as the date. Another press switches the crown to main time-zone adjustment mode. And a final press brings the system back to its initial position.

This system does away with the need to pull out the crown and thus ensures peerless water resistance without needing to resort to the traditional compression key.

Stop seconds device

In the time-setting position, the seconds hand continues running and the precision of the cheap Omega replica watches rating is thus not impaired. To ensure perfect synchronisation with a time signal, the user simply operates the slide located on the left side of the case. Simultaneously sliding and pressing it stops the seconds hand, which will continue running again when the slide is released. This handling in two phases – sliding and pressing – serves to avoid any accidental handling.

Functionality and endurance, the essential attributes of the Extreme LAB 2 Power reserve The functions of a wristwatch depend on the force transmitted to the movement. The barrel of the Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 guarantees a constant supply of energy for 60 hours. To consult the level of energy available at any given time, a new patented radial display providing simple and intuitive readability is arranged around the rim of the upper dial section. As the power reserve is gradually depleted, the various segments on the semi-circular indication turn from white to blue. This generously sized and unique display mode facilitates an instant check of the level of the barrel’s degree of winding, even in poor light.

Inventive pushpiece construction

The two traditional pushpieces are covered and protected by two L-shaped metal levers that pivot around the crown. They provide a broad contact area while protecting the crown and its integrated function selector. The upper surface of the pushpiece is coated with rubber grooves to ensure a non-slip grip.

Dual time zone

The Master Compressor Extreme LAB has a GMT function. The second time zone, which displays the time in the owner’s usual place of residence, is shown by a second central hours hand, complete with a 24-hour display at 6 o’Clock. The time zone is adjusted via a crown-integrated function selector and also drives the date in both forwards or backwards directions.

This new model is powered by Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 780, featuring a column-wheel-controlled chronograph. Precision starting and stopping of the time measurement is ensured by a vertical coupling-clutch. The large balance with its 11.5 mg.cm2 moment of inertia beats at a cadence of 28,800 vibrations per hour and its amplitudes vary only marginally when sustaining shocks. It is fitted with variable-inertia adjustment screws. The absence of the index generally used to adjust the frequency of the balance eliminates the risk of a change in position if subjected to a violent shock. The balance-spring stud– holder is held by two screws which, once put in place, are secured definitively. The balance-spring itself is fitted with a specific protective device that restricts its oscillation in case of shocks. The balance-cock is held by two pinning points in order to enhance its resistance.

When it comes to endurance, the automatic rotor, which is mounted on ceramic ball bearings that require no lubricant, winds the barrel of the fake Breitling watches so as to ensure a 60-hour power reserve. All movement components are meticulously decorated.

Strap system

The inventively designed new integrated interchangeable strap system is operated by means of a lever on the caseback. Rotating it releases the strap attachment and enables a smooth and easy change. The double alligator strap guarantees maximum durability and comfort, while the secure double pin buckle ensures precise two-position adjustment between each notch.

Digital chronograph minutes counter

In order to guarantee optimal at-a-glance readability the Breitling replica watchmakers of the Manufacture have designed a display enabling instant read-off. A large double- digit counter ideally situated at 12 o’clock indicates the chronograph minutes.

Its operation is based on an instant-jump mechanism activated at the exact moment when the seconds hand completes one full turn. The chronograph hours totaliser is located at 9 o’clock, coaxially with the movement seconds.

A powerful design for optimised use

The black ceramic bezel of the Extreme LAB 2 offers superior protection, as does the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The crown, also made of ceramic, echoes the particularly elegant bezel with its polished and satin-brushed finish. For the case middle, the engineers of the Manufacture have chosen a two-part construction on which an external brancard (carrier or shaft) serves as a strap attachment and a base for the inner case housing the movement. This system combines robustness and lightness thanks to TiVan15, a titanium and vanadium alloy providing 15% greater traction resistance than traditional titanium alloys.

The substantially openworked dial serves to observe the details of the calibre structure through the sapphire crystal. The black or ruthenium coating of various movement components creates a striking contrast with the numerals and hands in order to give the chronograph maximum readability.

High-tech materials, daring shapes combined with the double-ringed case structure, add to the aesthetic intensity of this chronograph. It alternates between blue and white colour codes, particularly on the chronograph hours counters, permeated by a resolutely graphic spirit and driven by a concern for legibility. While its appearance is undeniably complex, the Master Compressor Extreme LAB 2 is easily tamed by the person who has chosen to adopt it.

Ulysse Nardin Vivaldi musical watch

Ulysse Nardin delighted high horology enthusiasts in 2013 with the introduction of “Stranger”. A marvel timepiece, it married movement and design with music, playing a rendition of Strangers in the Night.

In its second release, the in-house developed, self-winding, musical mechanical replica Breitling watches performs the Vivaldi melody, Violin Concerto in E. Best known for his violin concertos, Four Seasons, famed Baroque composer Vivaldi’s brilliance is bestowed on this limited edition of 99 pieces crafted from 18-karat rose gold 5N. This new timepiece is a symbol of the harmonious melding of tradition and technology.

Based on the Ulysse Nardin caliber 690 using silicium technology, the timekeeper is not only easy to operate, but it also takes wearers down the reminiscent road of childhood. Its muse: a classical music box. Within, it’s as if a music box has been whittled down and flattened to supercharge this superb timepiece. On the hour and on request, owners can enjoy listening to this cheerful and soothing Vivaldi melody.

By simply pressing the on/off pusher at the 10 o’Clock position, the musical mechanism can be activated or deactivated. Press the melody-on-call pusher at 8 o’clock and instant pleasure comes to those who seek a melodic lift throughout their day.

Unique to this collection, as well, is how to wind the wristwatch, correct the time and set the date. These actions are completed by triggering the crown functions over a pusher instead of the customary action of pulling the crown. A prime advancement in cheap Rolex replica watchmaking, the movement enables adjustments with significant ease, as each manipulation happens by a forward or backward turn of the crown.

As revolutionary as it is in engineering, it is equally stylish. Exhibiting a modern appeal, sleek lines are tempered by a repetitive circle motif. Large Roman numerals mark the hours, adding a casual air. Its aesthetic is further warmed by an original medallion on the back denoting its authenticity as a Ulysse Nardin musical masterpiece. Currently crafted in rose gold, this exclusive item would be just as alluring in other colors, too. It may simply be a matter of time.

A renowned manufacturer of musical timepieces, such as Stranger, and Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great Westminster tourbillon minute repeaters, Ulysse Nardin continues its storytelling of function, sound and aesthetic playing in perfect concert through this latest addition to its musical family of best Breitling replica watches.

Alpina’s Alpiner 4 Collection: Six Affordable Swiss Sports Watches

In 1938, Alpina launched the original “Alpina 4,” which the brand claimed was the “first modern Swiss Breitling replica watches.” That vintage timepiece was the inspiration for the sporty Alpiner 4 collection, released by Alpina in 2014, which includes a chronograph and a GMT watch, both powered by automatic Swiss mechanical movements and priced well under $5,000.

The original Alpina 4 received its numerical name from the concept behind it: it was designed to combine the four features that Alpina founder Gottlieb Hauser considered essential for any sports watch to be called a sports watch — antimagnetic properties, shock-resistance, water-resistance, and a case made of stainless steel. The 1938 Breitling replica watches uk was meant as a timekeeper that could withstand anything that the Alpine sporting environment could throw at it — mountain climbing, lake diving, et cetera.

Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT/24H - white dial

That spirit lives on in the new Alpiner 4 watches, each of which is equipped with modern versions of the four basics. For antimagnetism, the watches are certified to the ISO 764 norm, which specifies that a Montblanc replica watches store must resist exposure to a direct current magnetic field of 4,800 A/m without impact on its accuracy. They are certified to the anti-shock standard of ISO 1413. The stainless steel cases (44 mm in diameter) are water-resistant to 100 meters (33o feet). Both the Chronograph and the GMT watch also include a 360-degree rotating compass bezel, which is coupled with a 24-hour scale on the outer ring of the dial, offering the wearer a simple way to set the compass. No other watch currently on the market has this specific feature.

Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT/24H - white dial & bracelet - side

The Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT contains the automatic Alpina Caliber AL-550, on a Sellita base, with 26 jewels and a 38-hour power reserve. The watch features an easy-to-use, intuitive GMT function in which the user sets the local time by independently moving the hour hand from hour to hour while the 24-hour hand constantly displays the home time zone and indicates whether it is day or night there. The replica Breitling watches sale has a sunray dial (in silvery white or black) with applied luminous indices, a date window at 3 o’clock, and luminous, white nickel hands. The Alpiner 4 GMT is offered on a black alligator strap or a stainless steel bracelet. Prices start at $2,495.

The Alpina Alpiner 4 Chronograph is equipped with the Sellita-based, automatic AL-860 movement, which has the same power reserve and other properties as the AL-550 GMT movement but also powers a chronograph, as indicated on the bi-compax dial (here again in black and silvery white sunray versions). The movement is protected from magnetic fields by an inner case made of low-carbon soft iron. The subdial at 3 o’clock counts 30 chronograph minutes while the 9 o’clock subdial displays the running seconds. Like its GMT counterpart, the Alpiner 4 Chronograph is available on black alligator strap or a steel bracelet. Prices start at $3,495.

The dial of the Hermès Arceau Millefiori 41 mm was made by the same technique used to produce the well-known Millefiori paperweights.

The watch’s case is made of white gold. The movement is the automatic H1837, which Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier makes exclusively for Hermès. The Breitling replica watches online has a transparent sapphire caseback. Price upon request.
