A Vintage Watch- A Worthwhile Investment For You

A vintage watch is a remarkable work of craftsmanship; The value of vintage watches is rising as more people seek an alternative to modern, high-tech gadgets. In November 2014 the world’s most expensive watch – the Patek Philippe Graves Super complication – was sold at auction for approximately £13.4m. It was previously sold in 1999 for approximately £10m – certainly then, a worthwhile investment.

When it comes to buying a vintage watch perhaps at auction, the story of the watch is often worth more than the actual timepiece. For example, if a watch was previously owned by a public figure or celebrity, it will be inevitably worth more. However, a vintage watch need not have been owned by Einstein to emanate a sense of nostalgia and old charm. A watch that has been loved by a previous owner offers an air of mystery and depth that’s sometimes lacking in a brand new watch.

Thanks to the trend towards “vintage-inspired” new watches combined with the relatively slow pace of the Swiss watch industry, vintage pieces can look as modern (or as dated) as you prefer. Much like the styling, most of the underlying technology is not only similar and just as effective as today’s movements, but can often be found for a fraction of the cost. What’s more, a quality vintage watch has been made using the finest materials is built to last so, providing it has been well cared for, the watch should serve you well for many years.

Timepieces from top makers such as Rolex and Patek Philippe lead the vintage watch market. For many people, the Datejust is Rolex. Debuting in 1945 with the ref. 4467, it was launched to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the company. It has been in constant production ever since. On its release, it married the two ground breaking revolutions that had put the Rolex name on the map. Then it added a third: housing the Perpetual movement inside the Oyster case. Now, it became the first waterproof, automatically-winding wristwatch to also display a date aperture. Other makers whose watches are going up in value include Replica Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Breitling, Cartier, TAG Heuer, Jaeger-LeCoultre, A. Lange & Söhne, Seiko, Tissot and Omega.

Appreciation: Panerai Luminor FlyBack Watch Pam00580

It is time to introduce a Ceramic Panerai model – As the title showing, Panerai Pam00580. It is also a Flyback watch. what is flyback chronograph? It is easy to understand after I learned many study materials about them, now I can tell you what is flyback. One obvious feature on the Flyback watch, when the hands arrives the destination position, it can fly back to the original place. In a common watch, the  hands work as a circle, rotating for one circle it will back to the original, so the terminus is the start of the next circle. However, the flyback hands is different, when the hands arrive one appointed position, it will not continue to walk ahead, it will be fly back to the original position, this is a move back and forth. Later, many other brand watches have this function. The next content is about Panerai Pam00580.

The Panerai pam00580 is equipped with P.9100 automatic movement, which will keep 3 days power reserve. the material and craftsmanship reach to the high level on technology, quality and reliability.

In order to read the time easily, the minute hand and the second hand stay on the center, and recognized with different color, the second hand is blue, the minute hand is steel color; the hour markers and numerals on the dial, the date window located at 3 o’clock, the running seconds lies on the 9 o’clock.

A unique place is the bridge on the crown. the crown is made of black stainless steel with black ceramic, it is tough and hard; the bridge cover around the crown, and it can protect the crown away from some destroy. Of course, it is the typical logo of Panerai.

See the blue slim hands, yes, it is the flyback chronograph. How can we operate it? We find that there is a button at the 8 o’clock, the operation can be finished by the button. When you press the button, the chronograph white hand will be back to the zero position in moment, and work from start at the same time, yeah, that’s convenient. There is no need to press the stop button to stop and press the reset button to reset.

Another feature on the pam00580 is the quality sense of the case. If have a closer look, you will find the corner angle where link the lugs and case is beautiful and special. For the watch-making craftsman, it is difficult to polish this shape, however Panerai did. The lugs are made of stainless steel, brush processed on the face, sense of quality.

Panerai is very strict with the details. the strap is made of special brown cowhide leather, the stitching is light yellow, adding retro style to the watch. The clasp is made of stainless steel also, unique design, and engraved with Panerai logo as decoration. Yeah, this is the Panerai. In my opinion, the ceramic watch is personality, used in Panerai is more attractive, because the Panerai always have large size, that’s enough to show the charm of Ceramic the natural charm. In coclusion, choosing Best Replica Watches or authentic watches, No matter from its appearance or its working, the Panerai Luminor Pam00580 will be your good choice.

Swiss Watches: How to Choose?

Firstly I must say that I like the Jaquet Droz watch’s crocodile leather strap, for the reasons, it’s because of its appearance of overall gentleness, and also because this watch brand used the none-stitches strap technology on its crocodile leather processing, which can maximum keep the original lines and texture of leather, and maybe this is what the consumers said “Don’t forget the beginner’s mind”.

Next we will talk about the Panerai replica for more details. The year of 1997 is extremely important for Panerai, Richemont purchased Panerai and then helped Panerai set up authorized distributor network in Italy. In the next few years, Panerai began to make first appearance in the field of international advanced clocks and watches, which introduced a Luminor series with two watches collections: Luminor and three Luminor Marina. Although the history of the Luminor series is the shortest, it is the first watch series after its formally entering into the civil top watch market field since its joint in Richemont. As a new watch brand entering the watch market field, Panerai can be said that did not know anything about civil market demands, it also held the attitude to have a try, and did not copy the appearance of the military version before completely, but made some changes in line with the mainstream aesthetic.

Finally, what will you feel when you get a super replica watch with oyster case of Rolex  replica, Hublot disk, vacheron constantin pointer, Blancpain Roman numeral scale and Jaquet Droz watch strap? Maybe you will feel it unbelievable and amazing! Anyway, just get the suitable one with the affordable price and required function to satisfy yourself, I think this is the most important thing. And you can take your consideration to the online shopping for replica watch so as to save more money and time from good and credible online watch store!
