Rolex Milgauss White Steel

Like other limited or special Rolex models and watches collection the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is one of those that managed to become a collectible watch. The collection was first introduced by Rolex in 1956 when they decided that they should make a special watch. What made this watch so special was the fact that it was supposed to be an antimagnetic watch for people who worked in power plants, medical facilities and research labs or usually any place where there was an unusual electromagnetic field.

The model is still done today although watch collectors are hunting for the vintage models, which can be really hard to obtain due to the fact that this watch didn’t manage to gain a lot of popularity when it was first introduced.

The watch has an amagnetic alloy hairspring and a movement encased by a faraday cage and it can withstand a magnetic flux of 1,000 gauss. It has a paramagnetic protection system with a bidirectional self-winding via Perpetual rotor and the officially certified Swiss chronometer.

It comes in three variants: white dial or with black dial. The black dial models have a colorless sapphire crystal and there’s also the Anniversary model that has a black dial with a different design and a greenish colored sapphire crystal. The bracelet is made of steel with oysterclasp with Easylink comfort extension link. The watch also has a 31 mm case and weights 157 grams and is very resistant to scratches and overall durable.

The watch was recreated in 2007 and at first it was rumored that it was going to be a limited edition. However, it is still produced nowadays and people can easily buy it. Authentic watch can cost around $6,000 dollars, depending on where you buy it and what model you choose. If you can’t spend this amount, you can get Swiss replica watch for under $700.  The good thing is that nowadays you can get it for a smaller price that it used to be before its recreation and even a bit afterwards when people thought it was going to be a limited edition.

This is a great Rolex watch for somebody who wants something really durable that could work in the harshest conditions but still look good on their wrist. Continue Reading

Wood Watches Trend

Your look is your business card even before opening your mouth to say “Hi”. You have to be careful on what you wear so you make a first impression that matters. The first impression cannot be easily changed. Think about an interview, the first date or even going to meet your partner’s parents. People tend to be keen on the first impression. From your shoes up to your hair, everything has to be perfect in order to be accepted.

You should know not only clothes matter. The accessories you wear have a say too. Whether you are a man or a woman, your watch says many things about you even if you don’t believe that. People look at your watch and try to guess the lifestyle you have. How rich you are, what style are you into, what kind of person you are from this single little thing as a watch.

2017 comes with its own rules to play by. Clothes are modern and exquisite, accessories are the same. You should know that watches have won a lot of terrain for this year. The new style is set by wood watches. Have you heard about wood watches so far? Well, it’s not so odd as it may sound. Whether you like nature and enjoy outdoors, or you are a fashion hunter, you have to wear a wood watch. Why is that? Because it’s trendy. Because it’s elegant, easy to wear and to clean, and it definitely looks very nice on any wrist. The watch strap won’t be so easily to bend or to be broken as it usually happens with leather or fake leather watch straps.

Regular watches are made of cheap material, rarely from a leather strap. You surely know after a while your strap will be broken. Watch straps aren’t made to last for a long period of time. You can replace them but it won’t be the same thing, the same sensation or the same look as the first strap. This is why you may want to get a watch with a wood strap. A wood watch is an eco-friendly choice because once broken it won’t affect the environment in any way. Wearing it feels like you have a piece of nature with you every day in any place or circumstance. Wood makes me think about nature, trees, woods, plants and animals. A whole environment coexisting in full understanding without the man to be involved or set in charge. A piece of immortality and eternity from the tree of life with you. Nature makes you think about greater things than your life.

If you look at an affordable watch which will last for a good piece of time on your wrist, the wood watch is a perfect choice! You can choose the best wood watch for you from a variety of watches of different design, size, price.

Rolex Sky Dweller

I was contacted by the company asking me if I want to review the Rolex Sky Dweller I have purchased from them. At first I was surprised by this unusual request and did not know what to make of it, but after a while I realized that other shoppers may actually benefit from my experience and serve as a guide line.

Needless to say that at first I was very hesitant about buying a replica online, but I was desperate to have my own Rolex Sky Dweller and I know for a fact that I will never be able to save enough money to buy the real one. So I took my chances and I ordered it on the website that seemed to me as the most trustworthy one. The delivery was surprisingly fast. I was promised that in 7-8 business days I will receive my package and the mail man delivered it only after 5 days. When I got it I couldn’t wait to unwrap it and see how it actually looked like. I impatiently torn the package and found the watch all wrapped up in bubble plastic and scotch tape. I then re-started the whole tearing operation, but this time focusing on the thick layer of plastic. I finally managed to unveil my watch. From the first glance I was mesmerized by this beautiful Rolex Sky Dweller. It was better than I had imagined.

I think I have seen the commercial for this watch a thousand times. With the same slow motion I began studying every inch of my Rolex. It is a surprisingly well made replica. The glass has that clear fine shine of a sapphire crystal. The dial of the watch shows a very high attention for details and a refinement of materials and craftsmanship. I just love the simple complexity of the dial of this Rolex Sky Dweller. The second time zone wheel is a very creative novelty for Rolex and it brings to our attention the fact that Rolex isn’t just a classic luxury brand focusing on perfectly complicated internals. The design doesn’t need to be necessarily classic and simple. It can also be innovative and youthful. The stainless steel used on this watch is clearly of very good quality, also the links of the band are full and not hallow like I have seen on other replicas. This makes the watch feel sturdy and heavy just like the real one. All the markings and serial numbers are present on the case and band. It even has the small laser etched crown at 6 o’clock. I have to admit that it manages to impress me with its similarity to the original watch. I know all the details of the authentic Rolex Sky Dweller by heart and when checking this replica closely I cannot distinguish any.

The ultimate test was to have my uncle inspect it. He owns about a dozen watches, all original Rolex, Tag Heuer, Jaeger LeCoultre, Omega, Vacheron Constantin and so on. Luxury watches are his biggest passion and he is an expert. I showed him the watch and when seeing it he asked me: “What did you do? Did you rob a bank?”. I didn’t have the heart to lie to him so I told him that it’s a replica. I wear the watch each time I get a chance and I have to say that I’m still in love with the design. For me, the Sky Dweller is the perfect timepiece.
