To commemorate 175 decades of watchmaking in its miniature Saxon town, NOMOS replica is celebrating Glashütte’s replica storied record of fine watchmaking through the release of three limited editions from the Lambda household — in a new 40.5mm stainless steel case. Until now, the Lambda line has included only valuable metal offerings, so these new watches provide a more accessible entrance point to NOMOS’s high-end lineup. The brand new stainless steel limited editions, dubbed NOMOS Lambda — 175 Years Watchmaking Glashütte, are available in black, white, or blue colorways, limited to just 175 pieces each. The Lambda line embodies NOMOS’s different and modern design language, while its timeless styling and in-house caliber capture the history of watchmaking innovation that has infused the town for nearly two centuries — the perfect way to celebrate the past while looking to the future.
There’s lots to celebrate while looking back at the history of Glashütte — a city with a history nearly as fascinating as the watches that it currently generates. Until the early 1500s, the small village of Glashütte, located close to the Czech border south of Dresden, was little more than a group of small farms. After copper and silver were found in the hills, the population boomed and people flocked to the area, mining the Ore Mountains for over four centuries. However, when those mines ran dry, the city’s economy crumbled, and its inhabitants were left distressed for employment. In 1845, Master watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange was delivered to Glashütte from the Saxon King Friedrich August II in an attempt to revitalize the local market by educating the natives in the craft of watchmaking. After a difficult start, Lange managed to set a good infrastructure for watchmaking and attracted some of Germany’s greatest watchmakers, eventually transforming the destitute city into the Saxon chair of fine watchmaking. During World War II the city was bombed, factories ravaged and appropriated by Soviet forces, and the rich tradition of Glashütte watchmaking was almost lost to history. But following the reunification of Germany, manufacturers quickly returned into the region and the town experienced a rebirth. Glashütte has resumed its place as the beating heart of German watchmaking and Nomos Lambda 930 Rose replica watches, founded in 1990, has become the largest brand based out of the town. In fact, NOMOS now produces more mechanical watches than any other manufacturer in Germany.
GMT watches can also be frequently sport watches, making perfect sense if you think about it. In case GMT watches are designed to be great travel companions, then it is sensible to also ensure that they are robust enough to take whatever comes their way on the road. Hencethe most popular and iconic GMT watches — believe Rolex GMT-Master and Tudor Black Bay GMT — can also be watches. But what if you are the type of person who only travels in relaxation and prevents any form of exertion? Is there a GMT watch that matches that kind of traveler? Well, I’m pleased to say there is now, and it is the new Blancpain Villeret GMT Date.
Brand: Blancpain Replica Model: Villeret GMT Date Dimensions: 40mm diameter, 10.28mm-thick Water Resistance: 30 meters Case Material: Red gold and stainless steel Crystal/Lens: Sapphire Movement: Caliber 5A50 Power Reserve: 72 hours Strap/Bracelet: Leather strap or fitting Mille Mailles necklace Cost: Red gold from $21,600; stainless steel from $12,000
Diagnosis There is a dearth of dressy and elegant GMT watches, particularly in stainless steel. There are the odd few, such as the Nomos Tangomat GMT (then again, many Nomos watches are dressy), the Glashütte Original Senator Cosmopolite (technically a dual-timer), and Blancpain St. Valentine’s Day Special Edition Watch own Villeret Quantieme Complet GMT (perhaps the only one with this brief list that really qualifies as a elegant GMT) but, by and large, the vast majority of the very popular and famous GMT watches can also be sporting watches. Happily , we now have a fresh Blancpain to fill the void.
The new Villeret GMT Date comes two versions: red silver and stainless steel. The two are identical, save for the color of the dials and their palms. The reddish -old Villeret GMT Date comes with an opaline dial and fitting red-gold palms, while the stainless steel version has a white dial and stainless steel handson. Both come with either leather strap or a fitting beads-of-rice-style Mille Mailles necklace — that translates to”a thousand links.”
In an unsurprising turn of events, Audemars Piguet Unveils Michael Schumacher replica Watch has re-focused its attention to its past designs. With so many beautiful, albeit today little-known references in its history, that’s awesome news. The Audemars Piguet Remaster01 Self-Winding Chronograph is the first watch to launch the [Re]master line by reiterating the handsome design of a 1943 original in a slightly confused, albeit still very good-looking package.
The 41mm instance of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding utilizes 18k 5N pink gold, which from initial images seems to toe a middle ground between more prevalent red or rose gold and traditional yellow gold. It seems like a delicate, blush-like tone that helps to emphasize the brushed completing on the main case body. Exterior the new material, this instance maintains all of the hallmark elements of the Overseas series, such as the unique gear-like bezel, the integrated lugs, and small unguarded screwdown crown. Vacheron Constantin includes a sapphire display caseback and certifies the situation with a 150 meter water resistance rating.
