Aside from spotting the various wrist candy that adorns many a visitor in town that week, the epicenter of watch collecting is undoubtably Fourtané Estate Jewelers, located on Ocean Avenue in Carmel.  Fourtané has been the premier location for visitors to peruse both new and vintage Rolex replica watches, in addition to their collection of unique and beautiful estate jewelry.  Last year, Fourtané added the well respected independent manufactures Laurent Ferrier and Ressence to their stable of brands, and this year, the further enhanced their shopping experience with the addition of A. Lange & Sohne to the product mix.

We were fortunate enough to attend an annual gathering at Fourtané on Friday night which saw over 100 collectors from around the world visiting.

The star of the show however, is always the vintage Rolexes, and this year definitely did not disappoint!  Several different Paul Newmans, a few Comexes, and many other rare and desirable sports Rolex replica watches were on display.  Rumor has it, that even the CEO of Rolex himself, Mr. Dufour stopped by to check out the watches!

Manufacture Rolex replica watches sale is thrilled to announce its third consecutive participation in Asia’s most prestigious Haute Horlogerie Exhibition, running from September 30th to October 3rd in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.Watches&Wonders will provide yet another exciting opportunity for the Maison to display its latest creations centred around the Astral Skeleton theme, as well as its inimitable theatrical brand-setting talent embodied in its cutting-edge World of Rolex.

Commenting on this year’s edition of Watches&Wonders, CEO Jean-Marc Pontroué expressed a sense of eager anticipation: “Building on its double status as the pioneer of contemporary skeleton calibre and a specialist in architectural and technical mechanics, Manufacture Rolex is excited to be presenting its raft of new 2015 launches in Asia. It will also be premiering the Excalibur Star of Infinity – a model every bit as generous and dazzling as its name implies.”

Outstanding jewellery expertise transcends the beauty of mechanical complexity

Like several of this year’s releases, this latest jewellery timepiece to be exclusively unveiled at Watches&Wonders 2015 from Rolex replica uk reflects the Astral Skeleton principle. The concept is based on the unique star-shaped design of Rolexcontemporary skeleton movements, borrowed from nature and its heavenly constellations.

In the Excalibur Star of Infinity, formal aesthetics meets functionality, since the tips of the RD01SQ skeleton double flying tourbillon ‘star’ point to several hour-markers and thus enhance clarity. Even more significantly, they appear to stretch out towards the vast expanses of space… the infinity evoked in its name. This luminous interpretation glows with the fire of 312 baguette-cut diamonds totalling approximately 14.93 carats and adorning the full-pavé white gold case, the flange – as well as the star itself, which sparkles with 34 of these gems (0.96 cts).

The pristine radiance of the precious stones admirably complements the rhodium-plated charcoal grey of the calibre with its finely circular-grained plate and illuminates the twin Celtic cross-shaped tourbillon carriages. This shining example of the two-fold jewellery and watchmaking expertise cultivated by Manufacture Rolex Replica Daytona bears the Poinçon de Genève certification and is fitted with a hand-stitched black alligator strap creating a striking contrast, secured by an adjustable folding buckle also glittering with 32 baguette-cut diamonds (approx. 1.33 cts).

Once upon a star in the constellation of Horologia

In 2015, the World of Rolex is a dreamlike fantasy world powerfully evoking the Manufacture’s theme of the year: skeleton-work and its multiple interpretations in nature, art and fake Rolex watchmaking. Stepping into this area will instil a sense of entering an enchanted, legendary Arthurian forest subtly evoking the world of the Excalibur line, as well as discovering an extraordinary tentacular creature that looks as it has been released from its cage. Rubber meets metal, while curves and powerful lines meet the rounded fascination of an eye opening and shutting like a window onto the very soul of horology. Even the integrated display windows recall the circular shape of timepiece dials. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the sensorial 3D Astral Skeleton Experience thanks to Oculus glasses.

It is the ever first time Rolex collaborates with Dorian Ho, a renowned fashion designer in Hong Kong on new uniform design for Rolex Boutiques across Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Greater China, while it is also a first for Dorian to collaborate with a luxury Rolex replica watch brand. Sharing the same mind set of creating unconventional and unique art pieces, Rolex’s collaboration with Dorian will spark in a way with ultimate dynamics and passion. On 31 July, Rolex presented Dorian Ho Homme Fall/ Winter 2015-2016 Collection Fashion Show to mark the debut for the collaboration at The Pulse in the Repulse Bay where guests joined Loic Biver, General Manager for Rolex Greater China and  Dorian Ho to unveil the new Rolex uniforms alongside Dorian’s fashion show. At the event, Dorian shared his design concept which is inspired by Rolex’s concept of “Art of Fusion” – using different materials together with the brand’s outstanding “H” logo to create the sophisticated outfits. On the male outfit, the “H” logo is implicitly revealed in contrast fabric on the lapels across the chest, adding an “H” logo embroidery on the placket front of the male shirt; while the female outfit adds a little romance and femininity to the work chic with the ruffle hem blazer and fitted silhouette, pulling together a stylish and fashionable ensemble in no doubt. Loic Biver, General Manager of Rolex Greater China remarked: “Rolex takes an ever first step into the fashion industry and I am glad to collaborate with Dorian Ho who is no doubt a top fashion designer in Hong Kong. Dorian’s strong passion in fashion can definitely inject a new force in Rolex to further present the brand philosophy of the “Art of Fusion” and I am looking forward to seeing more sparkles with Dorian in the near future”.

Metallic and rustic stud and crystal details applied on top of formal suiting, to present another level of masculinity sophistication.

Being that this is Tiffany & Co the CT60 Collection has quite a lot of depth to it, ranging from basic three-hand automatics all the way up the limited edition, 18 karat rose gold calendar Swiss Rolex replica watches modelled off an original Tiffany & Co. gold watch given to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945. It was this original watch in fact that inspired the aesthetic of the entire new collection, hence the distinct vintage vibe.

As broad as the collection is however, I quickly zoomed in on one particular model that really caught my eye; the CT60 Chronograph. Presented in a perfectly sized 42mm case in your choice of either 18k rose gold or stainless steel, the watch really makes an impression on the wrist. Personally I found myself more drawn to the 18k rose gold model – who doesn’t, right? – but I have to admit the blue-dial version, which is only available in stainless steel, was also pretty tempting.

Now, if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably read this far and are now thinking this all sounds great but this is still Tiffany & Co we’re talking about right? They make gorgeous jewellery sure but they’re not exactly known for their cheap Rolex replica watches, especially not mechanical ones for men. I admit that I too was somewhat skeptical when I first heard about the CT60 collection but after spending a couple of weeks with the CT60 Chronograph on my wrist my stance has somewhat softened.

That being said I don’t expect the watch snobs among us to suddenly embrace Tiffany & Co as a legitimate watchmaker. What I will say though, is that for someone who is looking to get just one nice watch to wear all the time and whose value others can readily appreciate at a glance, the CT60 Chronograph is definitely a viable option.

For a start you can’t beat the brand recognition factor. Everybody, and I mean everybody, knows that Tiffany & Co makes expensive, good quality products. Plus, unlike other, more fashion-oriented brands like Gucci and Burberry, the connection between jeweler and Replica Rolex Daytona watchmaker is less of a stretch.

Tiffany & Co CT60 Chronograph

Brand name aside however, the CT60 Chronograph is also actually a very good looking watch with a solid mechanical movement doing the heavy lifting behind the scenes. The multi-layered dial is clean and easy to read, with subtle touches like the soleil finishing on the background and the contrasting printed outline around the hour numerals giving it a distinctive style all its own. The chronograph features a central seconds counter with red-tipped indicator, whilst elapsed minutes are recorded on a 30-minute counter on the sub-dial at 3 o’clock. Normal seconds meanwhile are tracked on the second sub-dial at 9 o’clock, with a large-ish date display at 6 o’clock finishing things off nicely.

Turn the CT60 Chronograph over and you get a glance of the TCO.0279 automatic movement, which is essentially a slightly modified La Joux-Perret Cal. 7771. If that name sounds familiar it’s because La Joux-Perret are also the master craftsmen behind high-end Rolex replica watches brand Arnold & Son, which gives you a pretty clear indication of the level of quality we are dealing with here. Although not excessively decorated the oscillating rotor does have the Tiffany & Co logo engraved into it and features Cote de Geneve and Colimacon decoration, which is a nice, if subtle, touch.

Tiffany & Co CT60 Chronograph

Available now from Tiffany & Co boutiques everywhere, the CT60 Chronograph retails for $15,000 in rose gold and $6,750 in steel with a leather strap (the price goes up to $7,250 if you want a matching steel bracelet). A number of dial and strap variations are also available depending on your personal preferences.
