Premier is Seiko’s pointer gentleman watch series. For many years, it has achieved outstanding success all over the world, first in Europe, and then successfully in the world. Its appeal lies in its very modern and extremely elegant appearance. The design of the watch is derived from ancient architecture, but it is combined with moving modern design style. Similarly, this duality is also reflected in the internal movement. The Premier line includes traditional mechanical movements, as well as the latest man-powered movements. All in all, the fusion of classic and modern is the essence of Seiko Premier.

The case has become rounder, the face plate has more charm, the crown is new, and the band of the strap is slightly smaller and softer to fit on the wrist.

Parmigiani Plays The Perfect Tribute To Brazilian Music

Pershing Samba Madeira pays tribute to Brazil with wood inlay craftsmanship

Parmigiani’s elegant and dynamic Pershing collection adds another masterpiece-Pershing Samba Madeira: 的 It was born to add an extraordinary work to the fine watchmaking palace-in the name of Parmigiani, decorated with With bright colors and lively samba rhythms, Pershing Samba Madeira expresses his respect and praise for the country of Brazil.

To pay tribute to the music tradition of a country through a watch, watchmakers often just display a few elements on the dial that represent musical characteristics. This is also the most common practice. However, Parmigiani in Fleurier was not content to do just such a superficial article-they completely built the entire watch into an instrument. The Pershing Samba Madeira complication watch depicts a guitar in close-up. The soundhole of the guitar and the tourbillon cage exactly match the appearance and size, which is exquisite. The charming escapement rotates non-stop in the soundhole of the guitar. This guitar is given life and uses the time to play endless movements perfectly.

At a closer look, the dial actually uses a wood inlay craftsmanship process, showing a beautiful ‘mural’ -like the picture, delicate and colorful, of which the fun can only be truly understood by using a magnifying glass. The wood inlay is a traditional craft. The main process is to first outline and cut out the required inlaid wood chips, and then assemble these tiny wood chips, like a mosaic puzzle, to finally show an extremely delicate and delicate decorative effect. The entire process is completely completed by hand. According to the design draft, each piece of wood is custom-formed after carving, including 6 hair-like guitar strings.

In January 2013, Parmigiani launched two tourbillon watches with the same musical theme. They are Tonda Woodrock and Tonda Woodstock, both of which use wood inlay craftsmanship to present guitar patterns, showing the British flag and the American Stars and Stripes respectively, A tribute to British and American rock music. The Pershing Samba Madeira watch is praised by Brazil, so the background pattern of the guitar is also like the Brazilian flag:  Brazil’s national motto “Ordem e Progresso” across the starry planet;  colors on the Brazilian flag:  green, yellow and dark blue spread throughout the dial wall and Hermes strap, exuding the beautiful passion of Brazil.

This unique watch has a 192-hour power reserve, and its PF510 movement is composed of more than 237 parts, all of which are hand-finished using the purest traditional watchmaking techniques. The back of the movement features superb chamfering, the bridge is decorated with exquisite Geneva ripples, and the superb craftsmanship of the entire watch is also used to the utmost.

The elegant titanium case and the 18K rose gold bezel is in perfect contrast, showing a harmonious balance of beauty. The Pershing Samba Madeira watch is limited to one and comes with a watch display case decorated with hand-painted patterns in the colors of the Brazilian flag.

Parmigiani has been a partner of the Brazilian Football Confederation since 2011. The release of Pershing Samba Madeira once again confirms Parmigioni’s relationship with Brazil and Parmigioni’s love for music-this The love of cultural bridges.

Buyers To Be Ready To Match And Identify Replica Luxury Watch

How To Spot A Replica Luxury Watch?

With some brands costing upward of $1 million, it can be tempting to try to find the best deals out there.

But collectors have to be very careful — counterfeit watches are not only flooding the market, but they keep getting more and more convincing.

oxvow.com advises buyers to be ready to match and identify replica watches these five factors:

1/Material. The material, finishing, and color of counterfeit watches will sometimes be slightly off. Gold watches should also be hallmarked (you can always ask to get the watch tested to be safe).

2/Weight. Counterfeit watches are usually made with cheaper materials and are lighter than the original.
Type faces and engravings. Engravings on fine watches are generally sharper and more distinct. Type faces can differ in size and shape, too, and the really bad counterfeit watches will have spelling errors.

3/Movement. The most important thing to look out for is the watch’s movement. No matter how good a counterfeit watch looks, it’s not going to have better movement than the real thing. Consult with a watch expert and have him or her examine the watch and its internal mechanisms.

4/Sound. Another factor that can tell you how good the movement is can be the sound of the watch. Most really fine watches have extremely smooth mechanisms, which means there won’t be the ticking sound you expect with cheaper watches. If the watch ticks loudly, don’t buy it.
