Year In Review 2014: Our 10 Top Stories Of The Year Replica Clearance


Should you want this movement and case dimensions but with vintage styling, the PAM590 is your choice, however, the P.5000 also comes in the 45mm Radiomir case for the same price (CHF 5,700). This is to say you’ve got an unusually high number of choice choices to the PAM561 which makes it easier (or harder?) To find one that matches your taste more. Add to this the countless strap choices and you do have a ton of variations — perhaps a few too many, even.Overall, the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is a fun, if not exciting watch in the Panerai Luminor stable and one I wouldn’t mind wearing for a much more extended period of time. This mentioned, I don’t think it has everything going for it to be a keeper, similar to a refreshing addition which you wear and then market to move onto the next Panerai that tickles your fancy — because that’s often how it works, which is not always a bad thing.The use of materials in innovative and beneficial ways is your present “space race” in contemporary mechanical watches, also Panerai wishes to demonstrate that it is no slouch in this arena. The brand-new-for-2017 Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 watch utilizes different materials in its movement that have decreased friction to a minimum. In reality, the brand asserts that this reduction of friction must allow the motion to be “guaranteed for 50 years” because of the fact it doesn’t require lubrication. I will get into the particulars of it a tiny bit more, but it is a fascinating development that just 50 people will be able to enjoy for today, because that is the number of bits which will be made within this limited edition run.The Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 watch can create its 50-year promise because of four innovations used from the new P.3001/C Calibre motion. The first of these innovations is the use of sterile lubricated barrels, where both mainspring barrels possess a multi-layer coating with a last layer of DLC. Then, there is the silicon escapement that’s predominantly made of silicon and also has an uppermost coating of DLC.

At the end of the year that was the best ever, with traffic stats up by over 60% across all metrics, here’s a look at our ten top stories of 2014.

In terms of readership stories on Rolex and Seiko trump all the others, which is unsurprising since both are probably the most searched watch brands online. Other notable stories are our editorials on the end of the road for rising watch prices (ranked 6th and 8th), and the compilation of opinions from key figures in high horology on the Apple Watch. Here are the ten most popular articles of the last year. 10. Hands-On With The Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic 1958 Reissue Jaeger-LeCoultre recreated the Geophysic chronometer as a limited edition, enlarging the case but sticking closely to the look of the original, while making it available at an accessible price – a good recipe for success.

9. Hands-On With The Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Ref. 5990/1A We went up close with the Nautilus Travel Time, Patek Philippe’s latest sports chronograph that offers substantially more than the watch it replaces, for just a little bit more money, though the Nautilus is tremendously pricey to start with.

8. Introducing the Longines Heritage 1935, a Remake of its Iconic Czech Air Force Watch Longines reissued its distinctive, cushion-shaped aviator’s watch made for the Czech Air Force in the thirties and we compared the remake with the original.

7. Up Close With The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Ref. 116600 The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 made its comeback at Baselworld 2014, very much the same but significantly improved, especially with the bracelet and clasp. With our comparison of the new and old Sea-Dwellers at number two on the list, the Sea-Dweller is a crowd favourite.

6. EDITORIAL: Are watches too expensive? (Part 2) Obviously the answer is yes, and the slowdown in business has proved our thesis. Part 1 of this editorial is number six on this list.

5. Explaining The Panerai Watch Bands Replacement Replica P.9000 Automatic Movement – We Take It Apart And Put It All Back Together We took apart the Panerai P.9000 movement and put it all back together, revealing the details of the calibre and how it works.

4. EDITORIAL: Are watches too expensive? (Part 1) Evidently a lot of people agreed.

3. What The Watch Industry Thinks Of The Apple Watch Despite being non-existent, the Apple Watch was probably the hottest timepiece of 2014. We solicited opinions from movers and shakers in watchmaking, ranging from Max Busser of MB&F to Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid, about their thoughts on the Apple Watch.

2. COMPARISON: Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Refs. 16600 vs. 116600 We put together the old and new Sea-Dweller 4000.

1. Introducing The Seiko Credor Eichi II – The Finest Three-Hand Watch Made In Japan, And Possibly The World But the less affordable ones seem to be even more so. We broke the news of the US$50,000 Seiko Credor Eichi II in August and it quickly became a hot topic. With only 20 made each year, it is no wonder that there is a waiting list for this watch.

Thanks for reading. See you in 2015!
