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


So far as background goes, in its first days Panerai Watches Singapore Replica had already used 8-day power book watches powered by Angelus moves. This was to meet military requirements in an effort to produce the watches more dependable within a longer period of time and, reportedly, to not necessitate constant adjustment of their time and rewinding of their motion, rescuing the crown gaskets from premature wear.Speaking of which, I entrusted it to get you guys out of fascination: it takes roughly one minute and 45 seconds to completely wind a stopped movement – and boy, is that a good deal of twisting! Winding isn’t among those enjoyable experiences the PAM561 can provide, either. As the crown hardly extends across the plane of the concave top of the crown shield, you have to let go and catch hold of this crown countless times while the sharp edge of the shield itself along with the coined border of the crown make matters a bit less comfortable.The movement itself is in line with Panerai manufacture grade aesthetics: it’s rugged first, intriguing second, and beautiful third. It’s among the most rugged-looking calibers on the market, with only one enormous plate covering the gear train and the two barrels, and a single bridge that retains the balance wheel protected. Revealed is a massive – and I do mean huge – third wheel that is secured by a skeletonized bridge. Deep underneath it, close to the barrel, is the centre wheel while nearer to the balance wheel, and again deep in the guts of the movement, is the fourth wheel and the escapement.The equilibrium wheel itself is of a free-sprung structure, meaning its accuracy is adjusted via the more old-school and more elegant way of variable moment of inertia screws in the periphery of the balance wheel. Panerai explains that the bridge supporting the equilibrium is fixed by two screws under that are threaded rings which turn in both directions. The purpose of this is to correct the “end-shake” of this balance staff pivots. This technical solution assists the escapement to keep on running more easily in case of shocks.

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 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!
