Les Artisans De Genève & Kravitz Design LK 01 Customized Rolex Daytona Replica Watches UK

Les Artisans De Geneve is a company that was created in early 2016 with a mission of “recreating” existing and vintage watches. Initially distinguishing themselves from the customizers like Bamford, they chose to create pieces like their tribute to the Rolex Daytona 6263 replica watches UK which strayed from being too radical in how it was reimagined. Later in the year, came this watch, the Les Artisans De Geneve & Kravitz Design LK 01 Rolex Daytona. Partnering with Lenny Kravtiz’s design firm, Kravitz Design, Les Artisans De Geneve went all out in creating a brash and audacious black DLC and gold Daytona on a black military cuff strap. The mere inception of this concept is designed to generate love or hate opinions, but after spending time with this watch there is one undeniable fact – the product is meticulously done and objectively impressive in its execution.

The LK 01 is based on- the Rolex Daytona Ref. 116523. This is the two-tone steel and gold model introduced in 2000, but the two have little in common when you consider the before and after. Les Artisans De Geneve disassemble the watch and movement by hand and then begin their extensive process of modifying the piece. The case is treated with a black DLC and the bezel is replaced with one that is bakelite treated, done using a machine that dates back to the 1970s.

I really appreciate the use of bakelite for the bezel as it’s a novel and actually practical material. For those not familiar, bakelite is a temperature resistant plastic made of phenol and formaldehyde that is flexible to mold and durable once set. This is no ordinary plastic, and vintage bakelite items like jewelry, billiard balls, and chess sets (among many other items) are highly valuable and prized. And, of course, the Rolex GMT Ref. 6542 fake watches have a bakelite bezel and was sold for something around six-figures. Of course, part of the reason for this value may be due to the fact that the watch was discontinued when the decision to fill the numerals with radium was met with the unfortunate reality that bakelite could break, subjecting the wearer to the radium. In any case, in a world of ceramic bezels, I really enjoyed and appreciated the distinct aesthetic and feel of the bakelite bezel on the LK 01.

The black bezel has white tachymeter numerals and indices with a gold inner and outer ring. In addition to this, the chronograph pushers and crown are also done in gold which contrasts quite nicely with the black DLC case. It’s far from being an entirely original pairing of contrasting colors, but the exquisite quality and finish is clear as soon as the watch is handled.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Equips Rubber B Red Strap Replica Watches UK

As the very first company to create integrated rubber straps for Rolex sport replica watches UK in 2010, Rubber B modestly, but courageously introduced vulcanized rubber straps that featured blocked case integration and Oyster clasp compatibility for a few select Rolex watch models, including the Daytona, Submariner, and GMT Master. Initial reception by the Rolex community was vehemently mixed, and a gentle path to mainstream acceptance was paved with a long-term focus on promoting quality craftsmanship. Seven years later, Rubber B has become a mainstay, having grown exponentially to include over 175 different strap options that accommodate passionate watch owners of many various luxury brands.

Even Rolex, SA has joined in on the rubber strap phenomenon, most recently introducing their new “Oyster–Flex” straps for the 2015 Yachtmaster and the brand new 2017 Daytona. In the past, Rolex had only produced a limited number of gem-set Datejust watches that came with their own fashionable rubber strap with inlaid diamonds, but this new foray into rubber straps for sport models certainly has broadened the field of strap options available to Rolex enthusiasts.

Most notably, Rubber B is the only integrated watchband company whose rubber straps are earnestly produced in Switzerland, and always feature the mold marking “Swiss Made” in their rubber body, as such markings are strictly guarded by international trade law. Each integrated Rubber B strap contains a solid insert that has been micro-calibrated for a specific watch model, maintaining a tight, rotation-free mount to the watch case (“Blocked Integration”). The original purpose of Rubber B was to provide discerning Rolex watch owners with a viable alternative to their original Rolex bracelet, while they enjoyed comfort, individuality, and customization. However, in the case of the beautiful Sky-Dweller that comes originally from Rolex on a crocodile band, such owners can now have the added benefit of bathing, swimming, and perspiring without worry, all while wearing their exclusive Rolex watch.

Recently released, this uniquely integrated Rubber B watchband for the Rolex Sky-Dweller represents the latest and most high-tech evolution in rubber strap manufacturing. Although Rubber B straps Rolex fake watches are created exclusively in an industry-leading Swiss factory, the Sky-Dweller strap presented quite a challenge during development. This new design is significantly more structured than previous Rubber B models. The incorporation of a patented dual-color technology, termed VulChromatic® combined with this delicate, yet complex undertaking, required more machine re-engineering than usual. The target objective finally became a successful execution, as you may notice, represented in the surface color’s extremely finite margins (photo below).

Rubber B.

It is an overly-used phrase these days, but Rolex copy watches owners truly do understand and appreciate the value of Swiss quality engineering. Every aspect of a Rubber B strap must maintain an integral respect to its intended watch. For example, the bezel-influenced fluted grooves and subtle color patterns of this particular strap are intended to compliment the various Sky-Dweller models and dials currently available from Rolex. Beyond such design elements, the customer’s best interest must be profoundly considered. For, it is only upon the wearer’s long-term endearment of their strap, that the reputation of the strap-maker can be organically built. Rubber B believes you must value the customer, striving to provide them with a product that they will truly find impressive, then enjoy, and greatly appreciate. The VulChromatic® Series with dual-color chemistry was created by Rubber B’s Swiss factory with this exact purpose in mind.

Tropical Dial Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6541 Black Dial Replica Watches UK

Given Rolex’s tool replica watches heritage, it was only a matter of time before the company started manufacturing watches that were resistant to more than just moisture and dirt. As electricity proliferated throughout modern industry during the 1950s, some individuals found that the electromagnetic fields emitted by the equipment around them wreaked havoc on their wristwatches. Rolex embraced electricity’s presence and decided to create a watch that could withstand the conditions of the modern day work environment. In 1958, they released a watch that was prepared to deal with these new demands: the Rolex Milgauss, reference 6541.

The name Milgauss was created by combining two words: mille (Latin for a thousand) and gauss, the unit of measurement for magnetic forces. The name was intended to be an ever-present reminder that the watch was designed to withstand electromagnetic forces greater than 1,000 gauss. Rolex was able to achieve this feat by encasing the entire movement inside a Faraday cage. The Faraday cage (first invented by Michael Faraday in 1836) works by redistributing electromagnetic charges throughout the cage’s conducting material, thus neutralizing the effects present inside the cage.

The reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss fake watches came in two variations: one with a rotating bezel, featuring a minute scale (similar to that of a Submariner), and one with a large, fixed, flat bezel that was primarily intended for U.S. markets. Both versions were fitted with a lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand – an ever-present reminder of the Milgauss’s electromagnetic resilience.

The rotating bezel variant of the reference 6541 is truly unique among the Milgauss line of watches, as it most closely resembles an early iteration of Rolex’s Submariner. However, the flat bezel version of the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss marks the point in the watch line’s history where the famous electromagnetic timepiece started to take its final form.

Although it was originally invented for scientists and medical technicians working in the proximity of high-powered lab equipment, the reference 6541 Rolex Milgauss copy watches found an early following with members of the professional automobile-racing world. While it did not possess any features specifically tailored to racing, the Rolex Milgauss reference 6541’s sports-oriented style and lightning bolt-shaped seconds hand made it aesthetically fitting for those whose career revolved around the pursuit of speed.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Color Gems Dial Replica Watches UK For Men

This year at Baselworld 2017, we saw the release of the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 116695SATS watch done in a gem-set bezel. It’s not a Rolex for the usual fan of the brand but if you’re already someone (like myself) who also appreciates the non-traditional Yacht-Master 40 with the Oysterflex bracelet and aren’t afraid of some flash, then this is an interesting watch to have in a collection.

You’ll remember that the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 replica watches UK were introduced back in 2015 and immediately stood out due to the fact that it came on the then-new rubber Oysterflex bracelet. The reaction to the bracelet was, as expected, mixed but has been popular enough with the release of the Rolex Daytona on an Oysterflex bracelet this year.

Also released this year was this Yacht-Master 40 with a remarkably well-done gem-set bezel, which is about the only “typical Rolex” trait you’ll find in this piece. Love it or hate it, its execution and quality are undeniable.

It’s inevitable, but many watch enthusiasts have an unfortunate patellar-reflex response to seeing precious stones or gems on watches. I think there are several reasons for it: the often ugly bejeweled timepiece; crappy aftermarket jobs; an unfortunate desire to distance oneself from anything “bling” (sorry, but comment sections on watch blogs and forums are the only place I still see that word as of the past decade); as well as the fact that there are not many factory-made men’s watches done with gems that aren’t “diamond explosions” or just come off too effeminate. While it’s obvious that this piece is going to be geared towards the mainland Chinese market, I think this can be seen as a viable men’s watch in the Western market as well.

Like the non-gem model, this Yacht-Master 40 comes on the Oysterflex strap introduced in 2015. Not technically rubber, the elastomer strap is fit with a titanium nickel alloy “blade” underneath to give it a more secure fit. The strap also has the well-received “fins” underneath, which are designed to create a very small space between skin and the bracelet allowing for some flexibility during hot and cold weather. The dial is slightly different, with Rolex choosing a glossy black finish as opposed to the matte dial on the non-gem model.

Functionality isn’t affected with the functioning bi-directional bezel copy Rolex watches, it’s still a real dive watch with 100M water resistance. The double anti-reflective coated crystal and Chromalight lumed hands should make for legibility in the dark, as well. As for the movement, we still see the caliber 3135 movement found in models like the Submariner which gets 48 hours of power reserve.

The Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster fake watches introduced a couple of years ago were mostly ladies pieces, but the 39mm model was labeled just as the Datemaster which implies it’s a unisex piece. For me and many others, between the gems and diamonds on the bezel as well as the dial, it’s all a bit too much. When I look at the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 116695SATS, I see a watch that is a sports watch with gems on the bezel that still retains much the watch’s identity and DNA by leaving the dial untouched.
