Yonger & Bresson Automatic Chronograph Snake Skin Strap Watch: For A French Cowboy

Yonger & Bresson Automatic Chronograph Snake Skin Strap Watch: For A French Cowboy

The stylish cases are designed and assembled in France, to always include the Hello Kitty icon but in a subtle and sweet way. For most women, they need a watch like this - one that they can take with them wherever they go - and especially one with a sense of humor.

You no doubt have been reading a few articles on here about female watches and thought to yourselves that the tone doesn't quite sound like me. Hopefully at that point you noticed that the author of the blog article was not me, but rather the newest addition to aBlogtoRead.com; who will regularly be commenting on the watch world in addition to myself. So please welcome Molly McDermott, who is here to bring a different perspective to watch appreciation.

The open work style of the watch is a good intersection between modern and classic. Branding on the dial has Audemars Piguet and Maserati sharing the same size, which is interesting. Audemars Piguet is shorted to just "AP" and you have the Masterati Trident logo. The chronograph has a large central seconds hand with an easy to use tachymeter. The chronograph is also an monopusher chronograph meaning it is operated via a single button. Although the face of the watch is oblong, the dial itself is actually perfectly round. The Audemars Piguet Millenary MC12 Tourbillon Chronograph originally was released in about 2006 in a limited edition of just 150 pieces. The movement utilizes carbon which is part of Audemars Piguet's talents many other watch makers can't seem to replicate too well. I personally think that carbon is a bit gimmicky, but it is apparently very difficult to work in small sizes. The blued metal in the movement to match the blue of the car is a nice touch. The case of the Millenary is made of 950 platinum which makes it hefty and expensive. If you ever hear that a super car uses platinum, walk the other direction, it is a damn heavy material the opposite of "weight saving." Last of all you get a crocodile leather strap. Price?  About 0,000. Lower than the original retail price though.

It is really all the little details that makes this watch stand out. For example, did you notice there is no crown? Yup, none. The watch caseback is used to adjust and manually wind the watch (though the movement is automatic). So you see those little balled nubs in gold around the back of the case, those are to help twist it. The time can even be set under water. Cool right! There are almost no dive watches that can boast that. Inside the watch is the Pita-003 movement which I read is based on a modified ETA 2678. The movement will be modified with two patented systems which is necessary due to everything that is going on inside of the 18mm thick case of the Oceana watch. Did I also mention that is water resistant to 5000 meters? Yea, really nuts.

Oddly enough, you need to go to Ralf Tech's dedicated watch site, because their regular site has no mention of their watches. Oh, and their watch site is only in French. Honestly, a lot of their watches are really cool, but I am going to focus on just one right now from their WRX line (Subaru is gonna be pissed about that one) of watches. The main pictured watch is awesome because it has a perlage polished aluminum face. There is also a matte polished (is that an oxymoron?) aluminum face version. Perlage polish creates that pattern of overlapping polished circles that is highly reminiscent of high grade machinery. I've never see this type of polish applied to such an affordable watch, and never to a diving watch yet. If we are lucky, this trend will take root and slowly move in on the reign of carbon fiber faced watch that have absolutely saturated the market.

Survey Of The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Sport Watch History

On the back of the watch is an exhibition caseback with a view into the decorated P-181 mechanical movement and automatic rotor. This is not only one of the sportiest Perrelet watches, but it is totally unique in its looks among competitors. Though there are a few that are thematically similar focusing on modern aircraft.  I further think the Perrelet Turbine is a better alternative to the style of the Zenith Defy Xtreme watches that sometimes have a similar theme, but offer less to a wide audience. The Perrelet is a more reasonably priced luxury sport watch, as well has having more daily practicality.

The ChronoMaster Lady Moonphase is powered by the El Primero 410 movement, with the moonphase indicator positioned at 6 o'clock. How symbolic is this, for an engagement gesture... Your lives will now be joined, through all the different phases of the moon. With Zenith's masterful craftsmanship to symbolize your changing love. Forever.

The Pazzola Giant Alarm watch, is not exactly "giant" in size, but it is big for the company as it is their first mechanical alarm watch that is skeletonized and features a alarm time disc. The movement is the manually-wound, MC 96.1, 12  calibre with Côtes de Genève polished bridges, circular-grained lower plates, and a 38-hour power reserve. Mechanical alarm watches have never been the loudest in my opinion, but the striking mechanism does sounds charming. One of the two crowns is used to set the alarm time, while the other is used for the regular time. The hands are easy to read and are applied with Super LumiNova, which is good. Overall quality of the watch is at the top of the scale for the brand. The grained leather strap uses a satefy buckle, and the square look of the watch is handsome. Prices for the Pazzola Giant alarm watch will be around 1500 - 3000 Swiss Francs.

It's unfortunate that watch sales were slightly down last year for Bulgari. But with releases such as this one, especially in comparison to previous years and collections, I can see that Bulgari is definitely branching out and finding their true voice now.
