You may have noticed we’re all about the Bell & Ross AeroGT collection replica watch this week. After all, who didn’t spend their childhood creating jet-inspired cars, and imagining a world in which they could exist. Seriously, how much fun must B&R have had working on the AeroGT – and extending the concept out into two very cool watches. We’ve already reviewed the the three-handed BR03-92, but so far we’ve only given you a quick taste of the chronograph with our 60-second video. Now it’s time for a little more focus.

Let’s cut to the chase. This watch is all about the dial. Or rather, the lack of it. The skeletonised dial is at the heart of the AeroGT’s appeal. Rather than opt for something ornate, Bell & Ross limited edition fake watch has gone for a more brutal approach, with lots of straight lines and machined finishes. It’s an effect that’s entirely on-brand, and brings to mind a racing team removing all superfluous elements from their car in an effort to reduce weight and increase performance. And just in case all the weight-savings aren’t enough, Bell & Ross has added some go-faster details – chronograph indicators and date arrow. Nice elements that break up the otherwise monochromatic colour scheme.

If the dial is fresh, the classic case Bell & Ross replica watches – its square case inspired by airplane instrument panels only adding to the dial’s industrial look. Thanks to the shape, the AeroGT wears larger than the 42mm measurement might suggest, though it’s very comfortable thanks to the short lugs. The chronograph pushers and crown fit neatly into the design of the case, and the red start pusher and matching crown tube add an extra speedy touch, while the four (functional) bezel screws serve as the cherries on top.
The BR 03-94 AeroGT is powered by the BR-CAL.319, based on an ETA 2894-2. Interestingly the layout of the chronograph is tricompax, with three subdials rather than the two that usually show up on Bell & Ross chronographs. The finishing of the movement is utilitarian – no stripes, no anglage – just lots of plumb lines and straight machine brushing. And again, it works.
It’s not every day we see new gemsetting techniques in luxury watches, but this latest from Patek Philippe discount replica watch is certainly worthy of note, with its new Flamme setting technique for diamonds. The venue for this new technique is the Patek Philippe Calatrava 7200/200R, the diamond-set version of the ladies’ watch introduced in 2013 with the Caliber 240. The classic Calatrava, with its rounded officer’s style case and signature straight lugs with screwed strap bars, is a simple, classic design, serving as a canvas for the striking light show created by the Flamme-set diamonds.

The most popular ring setting for diamonds is the Tiffany-style prong, and the most prized cut is the ideal-cut round brilliant. There is a very good reason for these two preferences: light return. What gives diamonds their brilliance is the maximum reflection of light reflecting off a diamond’s inner facets and out through the table (top). This is best achieved with a perfectly symmetrical round brilliant cut, consisting of 52 facets that are mathematically calculated to reflect as much light as possible through the top and sides of the diamond. In order to reflect the most light, the diamond must first absorb the most light possible. The Tiffany prong setting holds the diamond in claws high above the shank, so that the base or pavilion is exposed, allowing light to enter and then reflect upwards through the table – the result is called “light return.”
The problem with setting diamonds into watches is that they are set into the metal, restricting light from entering the pavilion. This is partly compensated for by the watch industry’s convention of using Top Wesselton diamonds, a term that signifies the highest color grade possible, but also tends to encompass high clarity and cut values. Essentially, it means top diamonds. Top Wesseltons go a long way to making up for the decrease in light return caused by the covered pavilion, but it was only a matter of time before some enterprising and determined watch company, with in-house gemologists and a top-notch setting department, devised a method of putting diamonds into watches in a way that exposes the pavilions to light. Not surprisingly, it is Patek Philippe who has cracked the code.

The trick to the company’s new Flamme setting – a term Patek Philippe purple leather strap fake watch has registered for the watch industry – is to expose part of the pavilion of each diamond. On the bezel, the gemsetter sets two rows of diamonds into the metal as usual, but then takes a sharp burin and splits the gold between each diamond, exposing part of the pavilion and allowing light to pass through. Not only does the technique release more brilliance, but the grooves created by the burin form a lace-like engraving pattern around the diamonds that adds even more sparkle. Altogether, 142 diamonds totaling 1.08 carats are Flamme-set into the bezel of the Patek Philippe Calatrava 7200/200R watch in two staggered rows, arranged in descending order of size.
Here is kind of an interesting fact that I have admittedly brought up before but want to say again because I think it is sort of funny… The movement inside of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time series replica watches, which is the world time version of the also newer Geophysic True Second , has just one more component than the non-world time version. No doubt, there is a good engineering reason for this, but us watch nerds like to obsess and fantasize over why this is. The in-house-made Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 770 in the Geophysic True Second has 270 parts, whereas the caliber 772 in this Geophysic Universal Time has 271 parts. Why, I wonder.

In the crafting of this article, I won’t have an answer for you – other than my presumption that the world time indication’s disc can be driven off of the “normal” hour hand’s wheel by simply adding just one wheel – though I am sure that the good people at Jaeger-LeCoultre discount replica watches will honor me with an answer that is surely not as interesting as the reasons I can make up in my head. Perhaps there is a magic single “monolithic” component which adds a world time indicator disc to this otherwise fun and interesting new family of dead-beat (I mean, “True Second”) movements from our friends in Le Sentier, Switzerland.

It has taken me a while to become a fan of watches with globes on them, but the Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time leather strap fake watch is one that I would proudly wear. It sort of mixes the concepts of being the right type of world traveler nerd and an important person who gets to sit in an “information room.” Well, perhaps an information room circa 1950, which is when Jaeger-LeCoultre originally released its Geophyic watches, only to have the “science-minded” collection come back in 2014. With that said, I feel that the Geophysic True Second and Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time watches really helped the revived collection hit their stride due to the inclusion of the movements.
A science/engineer-minded watch validates the entire point of a dead-beat seconds hand and helps the presence of the complication makes sense. Rather than trying to follow (and count) the ceaseless flow of a sweeping seconds hand, the power of a dead-beat seconds hand is that it stops on each individual seconds indicator marker. This makes it much easier to count the seconds, especially when you are sitting in the information (war) room counting down the happening of some important potentially country-ending event. As much as we love the elegant grace of how traditional seconds hands flow on most mechanical watches, they leave us utterly incapable of accurately counting “five, four, three, two, one…”
