Replica Watches De Bethune DB27 D Polo edition

— The swiss replica watches brand presented a 10-piece limited edition of the DB27 at the occasion of the De Bethune Princely Polo Cup held in Vaduz.

Traditionally equipped with a protective cover or swivelled over into its housing, the classic polo player’s watch cannot display the time during play without risk of damage.

Thanks to its case equipped with an ultra-sturdy outer shell or ‘hull’, together with perfectly integrated and protected apertures, reading off the time during chukkas is now possible with this limited-edition DB27.

The digital jumping hours display and the minutes indicator enable a clear and instant time indication without any actual handling of the replica watches.

In its research work on new procedures and materials, De Bethune found that the choice of machining hardened steel – a material that has been used for centuries by various civilisations – and of combining its properties (notably including hardness) with those of a carbon-based coating, was a viable and sustainable alternative solution for ensuring a watch’s shock resistance. This vacuum-based treatment with a layer of carbon and hydrogen is generally applied to stainless steel in the swiss replica watch industry, whereas the blackened polished hardened steel of the DB27 unites the ideal characteristics that considerably enhance the robustness and elasticity of the case – whose extreme hardness results in a degree of resistance verging on that of the diamond.

Calibre S233D from the Manufacture is equipped with De Bethune patented and innovative features, notably including the patented triple pare-chute shock-absorbing system that protects the regulating organ from repeated and violent shocks.

The 43 mm round case with its 12 o’clock crown leaves comfortable space on the wrist thanks to short floating lugs. These articulated lugs are equipped with a patented spring-based system that enables the fake watches uk to adjust to the wrist and to polo players’ movements in order to achieve ultimate comfort and elegance.

In an appealing aesthetic touch, the shimmering overall black polished effect is enlivened by a pink gold medallion hand-engraved with two mallets and inlaid with a hand-polished white gold ball.

The creators of the DB27 D Polo edition, David Zanetta and Denis Flageollet, are thus placing their signature on an exclusive model backed by technical and aesthetic research applied to enhancing the legibility and functionality of the finished object.

A New Orleans man told police he met a petite blond named ‘Ashley’ in the French Quarter and brought her to his West End apartment for a drink last weekend. She might have drugged him, because when he awoke, he noticed that gold jewelry and $1,800 in cash had been stolen.

Police have released a photograph in an effort to identify and find the woman. The felony theft happened July 26, at the man’s apartment in the 8600 block of Pontchartrain Place, according to police.

The 47-year-old man invited the woman to his home about 4:45 a.m., after having drinks in the French Quarter, police said. At his home for another drink, he told police he “became very sleepy and fell asleep.”

He woke later to find that his gold Rolex replica watches, gold nugget ring, gold bracelet and the cash that had been on his nightstand were gone. His pants pockets also had been turned inside out, police said.

The woman is described as having a petite build, long hair and tattoo on her right leg. Police ask that anyone who can identify her call 3rd District detective Roger Caillouet at 504.658.6030, or Crimestoppers at 504.822.111 or www.starwatches.co.uk.

Nas Talks His Love of Rolex, Diamonds, and the Apple Replica Watch

swiss replica watches

Hip hop’s relationship with the wristwatch is tumultuous. The most successful rappers have always given younger fans brand names to aspire to and, in turn, young hip hop fans have kept watch bootleggers in business. As the wildly popular Fakewatchbusta Instagram account shows us, poor wristwear choices aren’t simply a matter of means, or lack thereof. It’s one of taste and availability. So what are we to do when we’re ready to buy a nice <strong>replica watch</strong> but don’t know anyone else who owns one? Starting today, we can do what every true hip hop fan has done at some point over past three decades. We listen to Nas.

The legendary MC and beacon of hip hop style has partnered with private watch dealer Steven Brown to launch Ownly One, a website that will offer for sale just one classic replica watches a day in limited numbers, both used and deadstock. The site will have pieces from heavyweight watchmakers like of Fake Rolex, Cartier, AP, Breitling and more, with replica watch conditions rated on a Scale of 1-10, a “3” being the lowest level available on the site (“Acceptable. May require some repair before use”), and a perfect “10” for new wristwear. But is it Nasty Nas who’s doling out the ratings? Well, no, but the guy knows a thing or two about swiss replica watches. This is the man who’s sported a different Rolex on countless magazine covers and the person for whom Hublot once threw a birthday party. To celebrate the launch of Ownly One, Nas got on the phone with GQ.com to talk about his days of sharing watches with the crew, his excitement for the Apple Replica Watch and a personal goal of wearing a new watch everyday.

How did you come to get involved with Ownly One?

I feel like I’m a walking commercial, and when I wear a watch, the world sees it. I can’t tell you how many times people bought certain watches I would wear and would tell me about it: “Yo, I got this cause I saw you with it.” And I’m drawn to the history of fake watches and the business of watches, automatically.

In hip hop, swiss watches are considered jewelry exclusively. Has your perspective on watches changed over the years?

I look at it the way I looked at it when I was younger. They’re fun, they’re great, but also now there’s more sophistication to it, like keeping your watch together, not losing it, taking care of it as something that could last forever.

When was it that you were able to distinguish a watch of quality from just a watch that had a lot of ice in it?

Watches with a lot of ice came into my life a lot later after my love for replica watches, you know? The iced out part is an added on thing from your chain. Some people wore earrings even but I preferred like a pinkie ring. Later on, when I got my pinkie ring and my chain I felt like it was only right to add diamonds to [my watch]. But even in the ’70s, the ’60s, the watches were iced out. A lot of people in hip hop think it started with hip hop… Nah.

Coming up was there ever a point where you borrowed someone else’s watch to front like it was yours?

Oh, for sure. The first person I saw up close and personal with the gold Rolex—no diamonds, just a classic Presidential—who I knew, who was close to my age was a guy named Jason who we called Black Jay. I rap about him on my last album in a song called “You Wouldn’t Understand.” I speak of how he had this watch, I think he’d tell me it cost him seventeen five ($17,500) or something like that, and we were in the projects so that was far out shit! So we went and hung out at the Apollo Theater amateur night and I remember being proud to hang out with somebody who had a super grown up’s watch on. We [both] walked with more maturity and confidence, even though I didn’t have one on my arm, he did.

Later on, Steve Stoute, who was my manager back then, I remember telling him that he should get one—I couldn’t get one at that moment in time but I remember saying someone in the crew has to have one! He knew it as well, automatically. He knew he needed a grown man’s watch. We wanted to be taken seriously in this business. Again, this is before everybody was icing them out, it was just about having a great watch. So Steve had his and I remember borrowing his, for sure.

The uglier side of luxury and luxury items for rappers is that it makes them targets for robbery. Coming up, do remember being cognizant of that?

Yeah, yeah, but that was the whole point of wearing your jewelry, it was a statement. It was a statement to say, “Only a chosen few of us could wear our jewelry.” But it was rappers who would get robbed, athletes who would get robbed—but it was a great feeling for me to wear the biggest chain in the industry at the time, which was my QB medallion, so it was a big thing, it was a great exhilarating feeling to be in places like The Tunnel with all my jewelry on. I felt like that’s what hip hop was all about for me.

One of the selling points of Ownly One is that you’re getting exactly what you paid for. As someone who didn’t come from money or was developing new relationships with salespeople in these arenas, were you ever weary of making these kind of bigger ticket purchases?

Oh for sure, a lot of the jewelry dealers are ghetto-minded. And they can’t remove themselves from operating from a ghetto business standpoint, so things happen like that. And you have to know what you’re asking for and what you’re doing. I partnered with Steven Brown because he’s one of the largest watch dealers in the country and he has a large network to source out some of the most illest timepieces that exist. I have to work with experts, there’s no ghetto business over here.

The latest thing in the news cycle is the Apple Replica Watch, do you think you’ll pick one up?

For sure, I think there’s a gold one that I want.

Is it the technology that appeals to you?

Half and half. I’m still learning, but all the things that that watch can do is the next stage in technological advancement and life. Just with the flick of your wrist you can do most of the things you can do on your phone, that’s what we been looking forward to for the past few decades. There’s been rumors and stuff for years and this is the first time that we’re seeing it in our lifetime and I’m excited about it.

The watches you’d find on Ownly One, who are they for?

They’re for guys like myself who are curious about the watch game. Everybody sees hip hop artists wearing icey chains and stuff and that’s cool, but when you want to walk around day to day, you not wearing an icey watch to your job or to the bar or to your son’s birthday party or your son’s basketball game. You’re not going out like it’s a flashy night if it’s a calm, regular day. People want a watch that will represent them when they step out to dinner with their wife or girlfriend or that lady who likes a good timepiece. This is for that person.

Why is it that you guys chose a vintage Rolex to give away?

A Rolex, that’s a watch many people may want in life but never, ever get and I just felt like, What’s better than to bless somebody with a vintage Replica Rolex? It’s classy to me.

Do you think anything will ever go on to top the prestige of a Replica Rolex?

In time. But no time soon.

What goes into choosing the copy watches that you wear?

There’s so many days in your life but there’s not enough watches to accompany you throughout your life if you want to change them up every day. But that’s the thing that keeps you pushing because if you have a friend that wants to invite you to Cannes, and your finances allow you to take a trip to the watch store and buy yourself a watch to wear on a yacht—or if you’re just an average guy working a 9-5 but you want a cool watch and want to save up for one that’ll last you a lifetime, you get a breitling replica watch that you could wear to every function. So someone like me is in the middle of those two guys.

I was just given a nice watch from my friend Steve Stoute—I don’t have to borrow watches from him like I did in the 90’s—he gave me a vintage Fake Rolex for my last birthday with my kid’s initials on the back of it. The band is animal skin and it’s really nice and it goes well with suits. So it depends on your day, if you’re just going to hang out and have drinks, whatever you feel like. A watch lover wants a watch that goes with that day.

Bridging The Divide Between Smart Technology And Traditonal Watchmaking

The market for wearable tech shows no signs of relenting. And while many are still scrambling to catch the smartwatch wave, one budding startup has been making considerable inroads at delivering a product that doesn’t sacrifice aesthetic appeal at the expense of innovation. Established in Seoul and based in Hong Kong, Kairos is instead positioning itself as a “mechanical replica watches smartwatch hybrid.” Founder and Managing Director Sam Yang refers to his patented technology as “a combination of a traditional analog watch and a smartwatch rolled into one.” The 34-year-old Korean-Canadian has found a way of synergizing smart technology and classic watchmaking, keeping both equally relevant. He believes watch enthusiasts can have both. And he’s well on his way to convincing the majority of the titans in the watchmaking industry that classic replica watches can be technologically advanced while retaining their classic edge.

“The idea came about several years ago, largely driven by my passion for watchmaking,” Yang says. “I often wondered how premium watch brands like Replica Rolex or Audemar Piguet would ever go about making a smartwatch. I tried to follow that idea throughout the design process, incorporating smartwatch technology into a mechanical watch without deviating from its analog make up.” By creating a way for top fake watch brands to evolve with smartwatch technology without losing any of their unique attributes and craftsmanship presents an enormous opportunity in the watchmaking industry. And the interest Yang has experienced thus far shows no signs of abating. In just over a year, Kairos raised $2 million in pre-orders, a further $2 million from investors, and currently boasts a $45 million valuation. Japan is their biggest market, followed by Russia and Switzerland.

Apple AAPL -0.62%’s Watch and Samsung’s Gear S created a great deal of buzz within the world of horology with the release of their flagship models. But while some saw it as a leap in the right direction, purists didn’t warm to its advantages, writing the new gadgets off as bland and cheap-looking. Kairos replica watches, on the other hand, provide users with the majority of functions that the other wearable gadgets offer, such as Bluetooth notifications together with command and control systems for your camera, the lights in your home and even your vehicle, a feature Yang incorporated from his previous startup venture called Zenenis.

“Our line of replica watches are designed to simplify your life as opposed to simply being a flashy accessory,” Yang assures. “A great deal of trial and error went into singling out which specifications would be more advantageous for consumers, while carefully selecting many of the same high grade materials that go into industry-leading Swiss replica watches.” Loosely translated, Kairos is Greek for “opportune time,” making every moment an opportunity; a philosophy Sam stands by ever since his father introduced him to the term after his previous Zenesis, an alarm and remote starter security system, failed to resonate with consumers. It was Yangs’s father, a missionary who traveled from Korea to The Philippines before settling in Toronto, who convinced him that there would always be another opportunity and that when it materialized Yang should act on it.

And act on it he did. Kairos is the second most successful crowdfunded smartwatch company after Pebble. They recently partnered with Wirecard earlier this year in April, a significant deal that will enable users to make mobile payments at any NFC terminal worldwide by simply tapping the T-Band. The brand won the attention of some of the industry’s biggest players at Basel World earlier this year, and are currently developing smartwatches with Switzerland-based Sequel AG, a unit of Timex Group, CX Swiss Military Watches, Vogard Swiss Replica Watches, Storm UK and Chronoswiss. Not bad for a startup just over a year old.

But even more impressive is the list of manufacturers Kairos’ has putting together its watches. The brand has already caught the eye of Bright Success Capital – the family VC fund of Kaifa Technologies and the biggest outsourcing company for the likes of Samsung and Seagate — who are making adjustments and sacrifices to their regular supply chains normally earmarked for larger orders because they see enormous potential. “Our suppliers are our investors,” Yang notes. “What I learned from my years struggling to get Zenesis off the ground, is that having one supplier, putting all our eggs in one basket, is a strategy doomed for failure.”

Kairos alliance within the watch community is one way Yang is fortifying his brand image, a side of the business he prefers to fine-tune before widening his market reach. “This ecosystem we built can stand up to the competition,” Yang notes. “We did this solely to create a brand, something I feel is most critical when presenting to such a loyal consumer base. I could have easily sold my products online and undercut our competitors and distributors but it doesn’t work that way. At least not in the way I run my business.”

The Hybrid MSW115 DLC Coated smartwatch is one of Kairos’ bestselling models.

Yang is quick to point out that he prefers providing consumers with a product that isn’t at the mercy of rapidly evolving trends that can see new models rendered virtually obsolete within mere months. “We make sure that our customers can “upgrade” the electronic components of our product for a minimal fee. The “mass production” components of the watch are replaceable, while the top grade materials and components will last forever,” Yang asserts. “This makes our replica watches uk something you can keep for years to come, making it a relatively safe investment.”

Kairos is now seeking another $8 million to grow and expand globally. They are already on track to meet pre-orders batch but are seeking investors to continue production. Prices range from $1,190 for the Japanese Miyota movement with icon screen, and $2,549 for the Swiss movement in gold.

As with all fledgeling companies, the journey hasn’t been without its setbacks. Kairos was hit with a series of delays plaguing progress since its original pre-order campaign last June, together with a string of necessary design changes that upset many of the company’s avid backers.

But with the interest Yang has been receiving as of late, Kairos may play a large part in changing the course of traditional watchmaking for years to come. Gregory Curley is a freelance writer and founder of GBC Media Group, a global marketing communications company based in Seoul, South Korea.
