Top Things To Look For In A Luxury Watch Part- Entry Level Luxury Watches

11 Apr

tumblr_n37g8hIJFC1rgceeqo1_500

There are number of luxury watch brands out in the market with distinguishing features and high class material. In order to know about these watches, you must read the Replica Watches Reviews to probe into such watches. There is a huge difference between online shopping and shopping in market. It is easy to find authentic products in nearby markets because physical appearance can help you to pick the best one. But the world of internet is full of scammers and most people are deprived from their money by them. Reviews are very useful in this regards because to can read the views of all the customers of the particular product. In this article, we will share the basic features of an entry level luxury watch. These watches are placed in $300 or above price point.

For $300 and up watches

There are varieties of watches included in this category. $300 may be a big amount for some while for others the money may not worth so much. If you belong to the first category then you need to be care as they are important things to look for. But this is just a single list and there are many other things that should be considered in a decent watch.

1.    Sapphire Crystal

A watch crystal is a transparent cover present on the face of the watch. Crystals are made from the different materials for over years, but only few are the most used ones. There are mainly two types of crystal found in watches that are synthetic sapphire crystals or mineral glass. Mineral crystal is cheaper and also offers one benefit over sapphire crystal that they don’t shatter when struck hard. It means that they may crack but they will not shatter in worst cases. On the other hand sapphire crystal is rare and also occurs with a very harsh impact. The watch with thick sapphire crystal refers to the potency of the timepiece. Sapphire crystal is a serious scratch resistant one. You can see the elegant watches with beat-up cases and flawless crystal. Sapphire crystal is thus more desirable over mineral crystals and must be preferred in majority of times.

2.    Solid Metal Construction

Everyone wants to get a timepiece out of a solid metal but do you know how cheaper watches cut costs. Grade 316L stainless steel should be used in making steel watches. Also the bracelet links and watch case should be made of solid pieces of metal because many manufacturers have folded metal or other hollow material. You can easily tell if the bracelet is solid or not by inspecting its side and if it looks as one solid piece. In entry level luxury watches, cases are mostly made from the fewer number of pieces and also most metal is used. It means that other materials like plastic or others are rarely used in watch making.

3.    Swiss Movement Or Japanese Movement

No other watches manufacturer can compete with Swiss made movements but only Japan is known for making decent watch movements. Indeed all watch movements are not created equally. Swiss movements come from Ronda or ETA especially the quartz movements. Japanese quartz movements come from makers like Casio, Citizen and Seiko. But these countries are not the only manufacturers of movements; you can find other movements at such price points. If you are not interested in Japanese watch then try to find the watch with Swiss movement. Though there are Chinese movements available but they are not reliable like the above two movements. One thin more, never go with mechanical movements at this price point, just stay with quartz movements.

4.    Solid Feeling Construction

In order to get a solid watch, you need to check the strap or bracelet fitting to the case. Put the wristwatch on your wrist and check the clasp or buckle operations, they should be smooth along with nice action. The buckle or clasp should not feel poorly or flimsy sized. If the watch features a rotating diver’s bezel, just twist it around and observe the movement it gives in a resting position. A decent watch should not any noise after being shifted around briskly on the wrist. For the very same reasons, Swiss manufacturers make best metal bracelets as compared to other ones such as Japan.

5.    Designed by True Watch Manufacturers

Just imagine about two people designing the watches. One is carefully managing the watch features as timepiece, while other is only concerned about the appearance of the watch. The elegant watches are always designed by using fundamental watch design principles. The alternative is the fashion watches with fabulous appearance but they have vestigial design cues. In a worst condition, the watch with poor function and poor design. The watches may have missing chronograph sub-dials, fake inoperable measuring scales, erroneous markers on dial and too short or wrong size hands. You may want your good looking watch to function as a move prop. In order to have best watch, you need to carefully look at the dial and all other features of it. This is one of the serious problems in the watch world nowadays but believe me, you will be proud that you find the watch by taking sometime which was actually designed to be a quality functioning instrument.

6.    Locking Deployant (Metal Bracelet)

Cheap watches with metal bracelet have a single locking clasp. This is a type of bracelet that just clicks into place. The perfect metal bracelet has the “double or triple locking clasps.” The triple lock has a push button in the mix. The double locking clasp are also available with a push button rather than of a fold over flap. In short, a good watch has a reliable bracelet which can survive in all conditions.

7.    Weight

Watch weight is one of the prime aspects. Some people love to wear heavy watches while others want to have light ones. In expensive watches, people want materials like titanium which is light weight than steel but in entry level luxury watches, weight is a sign of quality. Though titanium is also available in this category but with this price level, you will only get the watch with nice crisp quality appearance with steel. As we mentioned above, often times weight signifies the solid construction using a reliable quality steel. So, it is necessary to feel the weight of the bracelet and case to justify your investment.

8.    Signed Crown and Clasp or Buckle

A good watch maker carefully design the watch with perfectness. You can find the watch makers name on four places which are face of the watch, crown, case back and strap buckle or deployant clasp. They are also popular as “signed crowns or buckle clasps”. In the entry level luxury watch category, there are various types of light laser engraving. Expensive priced watches have graphics and logos done in relief. Cheap watches have deployants and bare crowns which indicate that such parts are taken from a parts bin and are far away from personal touch.

9.    Good Dial Lumination

All watches don’t have illuminating dials that glows in the dark. The feature is commonly found in classic or formal watches. However, all sports and casual wristwatches have some type of luminant applied on the dial and also on the hands. There are various qualities of luminant. Some are so impractical that should not be used. There are luminant that charges comfortably when exposed to sunlight or room and glows for hours. Japanese have the ability to make quality luminant. Watches with tritium gas tubes are best alternative for luminant. The timepieces are made by only one Swiss company and glows automatically for about 25-30 years. It is not hard to find tritium gas tubes as many known brands use them. But most watches you find will feature luminant. Try to find watch with large surface areas of luminant applied richly.

10.     Consistent Pricing

There are discount offers available on many watches to draw the attention from quality to quantity. Prices are often below retail which leads you to pay the actual “consistent street price”. For instance a $500 watches is available with $400 price at many watch points. An authorized dealer tags a price of $400 while unauthorized deal charges the same one for $250. The situation is alarming for many people with the value of the watch. This is known as “inconsistent pricing”. If you want to look for the consistency, don’t vary wildly from one seller to another.

The Wristwatch Reviews- Rolex Submariner

24 Mar

submariner

Professional diving watches such as Rolex Submariner are popular for their perfect time keeping ability in deep waters. In these Replica Rolex Reviews, we will share the reviews about the Rolex Submariner which will help to know about the perfect diving watch. The Rolex Submariner has the honor of first professional diving watch that was produced the Swiss master in 1953. The main designer of the watch Jacques Cousteau was a diving enthusiast and also served in the Navy before watch making. Being a professional diver, he was well aware about the necessities of a reliable diving watch. So the Rolex Submariner has following features:

Clear visibility in deep water with high contrast ratio black dial and big luminous hands.

Good water proof, antimagnetic and anti-collision structure.

Perfect corrosion resistance in different temperatures.

The first generation submariner with Ref. 6204 was slight different from 6202 and 6204 which was water resistant to 100m. The simple hand was changed with a “Mercedes-Benz” hand. During the same period, Rolex introduced 6205 models with a Submariner words on its dial. 6200 which was produced in 1954-1956 was the special edition of the Rolex Submariner. The difference between this model and other ones were the Roman numeral hour markers at 3, 6 and 9. The second generation came with the introduction of Ref. 6538 with same iconic “Mercedes-Benz” hand. The case diameter of 6538 model was increased to 38mm with Cal. 1030 Butterfly Rotor movement which had passed the COSC test and was the best movement at the time. “+” was changed into “BREVET” words below the “Crown” logo. The most notable aspect of the models was the water resistance to 200M.

Jean Piccard and Auguste made a new submarine diving record when they dived to 3150 meters in 1953. At the same time, Rolex Submariner was born and was used in a diving adventure in 600 meters. Casino Royale was broadcasted on 21 October 1954 which was the first time when 007 appeared on the screen. The main character Barry Nelson wore the Rolex Submariner which was released a year ago. Sean Connery also wore the watch in Dr.No but Rolex didn’t want to sponsor him. So the director had to lend its own NATO strap Submariner to the actor. It is due to this fact that people nowadays change the original Oyster bracelet of Submariner into a NATO cloth strap.

Ref 5508 (1958-1965) was the third generation Submariner with a Cal. 1530, 37mm diameter case and was water resistant to 100 meters. But the price was higher from the previous models and also had a red version “Submariner” words on the dial. The radioactivity increased due to the change of luminescent material. The 5510 was produced for only two years and was water resistant to 200 meters.

Rolex Submariner reached to its fourth generation with ref. 5512. The new models had various differences from the previous versions.

The bezel’s material was changed into solid steel from mixed rubber.

The bezel’s flutings were widened and were much bigger than previous models.

The crown of the Submariner was smashed in an accident in late 50’s, so guards on the both sides of the crown were added which is still in use.

A waterproof apron was added on the tube.

Beneath the “Crown” logo, there were three round points which were used as sports model sign.

Bracelet was prominently improved.

The case diameter was improved into a genuine sports watch size 39.5mm. The Cal. 1750 was used in 5512 which was the most advanced product of Rolex at that time. Due to its durability and accuracy, it has still a good reputation.

Ref. 5513 was a bit cheap version of 5512 with quite long lifeline and also with large production. The previous luminous markers were free from frames but later on they were equipped with frames but not metal ones. 1530 movement was used in 5513 model which was then switched to 1520 movement after few years. 5513’s military version was ref. 5517 that featured canvas military strap with much stronger sword hands but the price was very expensive. IOS (International Organization for Standardization made detailed requirements on the specifications of diving watch during the production of 5513. Here are the details which were published on July 1, 1981.

The watch must be readable in the dark from 25cm distance with proper time identification with time span on the bezel.

The timepiece must be DC anti-magnetic for more than 60 Gauss.

Even if it falls from 1 meter height on a hard word, it must not get any damage.

Plus 20kg resistance to external force.

The watch must work properly after immersing it in 3% salt water for at-least 24 hours.

The watch must have the ability to withstand 40 C -5 C -40 C temperature cycle.

1 and 5 graduation must be clear on the bezel

Can act properly under 30cm depth of water

Can withstand 12.5 atmospheric air pressure after testing for 20 minutes in water.

Added helium must be present in the watch to keep proper timing in the dark

A diving watch must have above requirements but watch such as Submariner is a professional and rare diving watch.

Ref. 1680 was one of the earliest models of Submariner with date function. Cal. 1570 movement was used in 1680 with water resistance to 200M and the production lasted from 1965 to 1980. Famous “Red Sub” was another model of 1680 that was loved worldwide by watch fans. Ref 16800 featured a sapphire crystal and was water resistant to 300 meters. The watch was equipped with 3035 movement and was also more stable and accurate than other models. In 1989, 168000 was produced but soon it was replaced with 16610 immediately.

Submariner was produced for the exploration of underwater world with special features. In-fact Submariner was not as spectacular as Daytona and also not had many functions but it was a gift for adventurers with powerful practical valve. 5513 was discontinued in 1989 and modern Submariner with ref 14060 emerged. Sapphire crystal was used to prevent the scratches and other damages that were caused in sports. But the hard brittle characteristic was not good enough to prevent collision. The new Rolex no date mechanism with Cal. 3030 was produced in 2001 that replaced 3000 and the previous model 14060 was renamed to 14060M. The newest Submariner Date with 300 meters waterproof was ref. 16610. 3135 new movement was used along with sapphire crystal. Rolex introduced 16610LV with green bezel as special anniversary edition on the 50th anniversary of Rolex in 2003. Rolex Submariner has been successfully retaining the top spot in the diving watches for over sixty years.

They have the ability to take a perfect close look at specific metals and other manufacturing materials to investigate the effects of manufacturing and machining techniques. Such large areas are extremely impressive and attractive which are used on the regular basis for serious remedies or prevent possible problems.

The modern scientific labs are meant for the specific purpose of testing watches by Rolex. The most interesting part of the labs is the stress test room. In this special room, bracelets, watch movements and cases undergo simulated wear and abuse on robots and other custom made machines. It would be true to assume that Rolex design watch that can last for lifetime. Take a look at any timepiece of Rolex from Daytona to Submariner and from GMT Master to Yacht-Master, every wristwatch is a true example of perfect experiments. It’s really easy to wear a watch and mark comment about it but the struggles to perfection which is found in Rolex wristwatches are really admirable that one can’t find in other Swiss watch brands.
