Replica Watches Only – De Bethune DB28, De Bethune’s 911

— We continue our review of the major replica watches for sale collections with a focus today on the DB28 line by De Bethune.

Autumn 2011: less than ten years had elapsed since the creation of De Bethune by David Zanetta and Denis Flageollet when the very first DB28 won the “Aiguille d’Or” prize in the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

Not doing more, but better

Which features particularly appealed to the jury members of the GPHG? From an aesthetic standpoint, the futuristic design of the DB28 paradoxically reprises the style of a historical pocket replica watches for sale with its crown at 12 o’clock and its solid hunter-type back displaying the (six-day) power reserve – a set of not entirely new features that De Bethune had already introduced in the DBS. By contrast, a far more contemporary note is struck by the grade 5 titanium clothing the ultra-light 43 mm case and the dial revealing the movement and its mainplate bearing the hands, as well as by the three-dimensional design of the moon at 6 o’clock depicted by a blued steel platinum and steel sphere spinning on its axis. The novel patented mobile lugs of the strap attachments were designed to enhance wearer comfort.

On a technical level, Calibre DB2115, developed and produced in-house, testifies to the brand’s impressive innovation capabilities with a self-regulating twin barrel, a silicon/palladium balance with flat terminal curve, protected by a triple pare-chute shock-absorbing system. All of which are enhanced by finishes reflecting the finest Haute Horlogerie traditions. “The future lies in doing better, not in doing more”, said David Zanetta during the prize-giving ceremony of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2011. The same goes for the future of cheap Rolex Replica watchmaking according to the philosophy upheld by De Bethune, which remains firmly dedicated to the primacy of technical research.

In the wake of this distinction conferred by the GPHG, De Bethune revealed the DB28 “Aiguille d’Or” the following year, along with the DB28 “Special Edition”. Both of these two limited series featured some new aesthetic elements, including the platinum and blackened steel spherical moon-phase indicator. 2012 witnessed the emergence of the DB28 ST tourbillon, driven by the hand-wound DB2119 movement and its ultra-thin tourbillon (64 components weighing just 0.18g) that is also ultra-fast at 36,000 vibrations per hour.

Black and blue

2013 was a black yet splendid year for the DB28. Black like the zirconium of the case and attachments of the DB28 Black Matt and DB28T Black and Black Gold models, and black like the polished steel bridge and minute circle of these two darkly sophisticated models. The sky adopted a brighter hue with the dreamy Skybridge model. The traditional open dial of the DB28 dial is transformed into a mirror-polished titanium blue sky encrusted with white gold and diamond stars and spherical hour-markers. This luminous Skybridge was complemented by a one-of-a-kind creation for Only Watch 2013.

Tested by Gaël Monfils
A special DB28 Black Matt version was created in 2014 for the new brand ambassador, French tennis player Gaël Monfils. Considered for several years to have the most powerful forehand in the ATP tour, Gaël Monfils wears his timepiece in competition and puts the triple pare-chute shock-absorbing stem to a very stern test.

2015: GS and Titanium  

In 2015, the DB28 GS innovates with a power-reserve indicator on the dial, water resistance to 100 m, extreme shock resistance and a microlight-type rubber strap. It does not provide a moon-phase display and the balance of the traditional Calibre 2115 is in silicon and white gold while the bridge is made of titanium, as is the hand-polished and smoothed-won 44 mm case.

In its Titanium version, the Maxichrono 2015 radiates an even more luminous and modern aura than the 2014 model, enhanced by its mirror-polished grade 5 titanium case and its dial punctuated by blue numerals swept over by four flame-blued steel hands – with only the chronograph hand appearing clothed in pink gold.

As De Bethune’s CEO Pierre Jacques sums up: “The DB28 is to De Bethune what the 911 is to Porsche: the embodiment of expertise, high technology and design. All of which makes it an exceptional timepiece that will doubtless make its mark on contemporary cheap replica UK watchmaking”,
 

Replica Watches – Klepcys Chronographe & Klepcys Réveil

— In 2015 cheap replica watches, Cyrus is all about in-house chronographs and alarms.

cheap-replica-watches sale


Propelled into the horological stratosphere in the first year of the second decade of the third millennium, Cyrus immediately stood out with an authentic and powerful personality that have earned it a number of awards in several countries. Featuring one of the first three-dimensional moon displays, followed in its galactic wake by that of the planet Mars, the Klepcys line rapidly established itself as the most iconic Cyrus model. The history that inspired the Cyrus founders in conveying the brand values is that of Cyrus the Conqueror, whose feats accomplished 2,500 years remain as impressive as ever. Another association that was favorably received by collectors right from the first collections was that with the Rolex Replica watchmaker and developer Jean-François Mojon, honored by the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2010, the launch year of the Cyrus brand for which he contributed to creating the first caliber.

The serenity of in-house production

Since then, although very few people are aware of the fact, Cyrus can legitimately claim to rely on an authentic Manufacture employing 70 people in production. In four years, four calibers have thus been made in-house. This autonomy in the realm of movement production is now proving a decisive strategic asset, as well as a guarantee of reliability, continuity and responsiveness on a swiftly evolving market where not all brands can lay claim to such advantages to convince and reassure customers. The construction of a movement implies a number of delicate operations as well as extraordinary expertise. While quality control, decoration, pre-assembly and prototype making are all phases that are relatively easy to grasp in terms of their names, others such as profile turning, milling, burnishing and cutting are more abstract and thus tougher to explain. Mastery of all this entire (non-exhaustive) list of stages gives Cyrus an appreciable degree of serenity when it comes to presenting its new models to its ever more numerous clients as well as in envisaging new products.

An original take on tradition

Presented at Baselworld 2015 in five different versions, the new selfwinding Klepcys Chronograph is above all distinguished by its more smoothly proportioned case and by the original aesthetic distribution of its functions. The vertical display of the chronograph counters along the 12-6 o’clock axis slides under the time indication on the right-hand side of the dial, while the central sceno.ds hand sweeps around the same 3-9 o’clock axis as that of the pointer-type date indication and the running seconds in black and white. On other side of these indications and of the titanium case with its satin-finished and shot-blasted finishes, the two crowns share roles: the start/stop function is controlled via the one on the right to avoid having to shift the position of the fingers, while resetting is done on the left. User friendliness and legibility are matched by comfort on the wrist thanks to a supple rubber strap equipped with a double-blade fine-adjustment system handled with two fingers and no tools. The transparent caseback reveals the exclusive movement produced in cooperation with Jean-François Mojon.

Sound the alarm!

By focusing firmly on innovation and originality, Cyrus places itself in the forefront of technology, as a unique and exclusive player with a strong identity. Its conquering spirit drives it to take risks by looking firmly to the future, while making a point of producing only models reflect in every way its philosophy dedicated to the exceptional. Other parameter intrinsically bound up with its values is the ergonomics of its timepieces – an often underestimated factor that considerably contributes to the pleasure of wearing a Tag Heuer Replica watch. Since it primarily represents an emotion, aestheticism is granted the same importance as the  mechanical content of a watch. This DNA is immortalized by the words engraved on the back of Cyrus timepieces “Proudly made for demanding people”.

The double symmetrical crowns that have now become a symbol of Cyrus frames the Klepcys Réveil displaying its smooth and functional indications in an innovative manner. The time function is visually highlighted at 12 o’clock and the day/night aperture is placed at 11 o’clock, while the alarm function performs five-minute jumps along a 24-hour scale (at 4 o’clock). Providing a pleasing visual balance in the lower part of the dial, the alarm hammer and the on/off function are activated by simply pressing the cabochon and sound for 16 seconds. The hands are facetted, shot-blasted and brushed, with a Superluminova tip. The movement of this limited series in steel and titanium was also developed in cooperation with Jean-François Mojon.

The rare partnerships in which Cyrus is involved are also exceptional by nature, whether with the W Motor hyper cars, tightrope artist Freddy Nock, the Monaco-based Star Team for the Children, or more recently with the new brand ambassador Mesut Özil. Arsenal’s superstar soccer player shares with Cyrus the maxim expressed by American poet Robert Forest: “ Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Named player of the year in Germany and winner of the 2014 World Cup, number 11 (and former star striker for Real Madrid) is a humble personality who has gradually forged his career. For Cyrus CEO Ruben Mira, he is an entirely worthy ‘descendant’ of Cyrus the Great.
