Hublot Replica Watches signs with America’s famed Dallas Cowboys football team

Classic Fusion Dallas Cowboys

Hublot announced an exclusive partnership with the Dallas Cowboys, making the Swiss luxury watch brand the Official Luxury Swiss Replica Watches & Timekeeper of America’s legendary football team. Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe joined together with Dallas Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones in Dallas, TX last night to kick off the start of an exciting multi-year partnership, as the two iconic brands fuse the worlds of luxury and sports.

The Dallas Cowboys are among the most famed football franchises in the world, boasting five Super Bowl Championships since its inception into the NFL in 1960, and sharing a record for having made the most appearances in the Super Bowl. Hublot is celebrating this partnership by launching three custom, limited edition, Dallas Cowboys-branded timepieces, inspired by the teams iconic Blue and Silver. Celebrating the Cowboys Five (5) Super Bowl wins, the famed Cowboy star can be found on the “5” of each model, with the woman’s piece boasting star set in diamonds. The Timepieces will be sold exclusively in the Dallas market – both at Hublot’s Dallas boutique and a newly minted pop-up location in the Cowboys’ Owner’s Lounge at AT&T Stadium, perhaps the most exclusive location in professional football. Through this partnership, Hublot is now the naming rights partner of the VIP parking entrance; Hublot clocks will adorn the stadium walls, while the HD jumbotrons above the field will feature a Hublot Clock for the pre-game countdowns at all home games.

Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, shared: “Collaborating with an iconic team like the Dallas Cowboys felt like a natural addition to our ever-growing platform of unique and exciting partnerships across the world, which also includes the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Bayern Munich, FIFA, and international football God Pelé to name a few. The Dallas Cowboys are an American institution; they are the world’s favorite football team. At Hublot, we strive to Be First, Be Different, and Be Unique. We have a long-standing history with the world of professional sports! We were the first luxury brand to enter the game of football (soccer) as well as NBA with the Miami Heat, and we are thrilled to become the first luxury brand to ever partner with an American football team.”

Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix Chronographs: Three of the best

— An overview of three outstanding chronographs submitted for consideration in this year’s competition. Chronographs from De Bethune, TAG Heuer and Zenith among others are competing in the 2014 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix

As Neil Armstrong’s world famous quote reminds us, the year 1969 saw a giant leap for mankind. But in the same year that the Apollo XI landing met the challenge set by John F. Kennedy to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade and, incidentally, set up the Omega Speedmaster as an icon, Zenith quietly launched the world’s first integrated automatic chronograph.

The appropriately named El Primero (meaning “the first” in Spanish) also came with a triple calendar and moon phase indication but, more importantly, beat at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, allowing for 1/10th of a second precision for the chronograph function.

Using a column wheel and offering 50 hours of power reserve, the calibre 410 powering this innovation became a cornerstone of the Zenith collection until the year 2000.  It has now been brought back to life in a faithful limited-edition reproduction of the original piece, which comes with a brown alligator leather strap or stainless-steel bracelet.
A giant leap for Rolex Replica watchmaking kind

Forty-five years after the lunar landing, De Bethune presents a giant leap for the chronograph this year with its DB29 Maxichrono Tourbillon. The culmination of seven years of research and development, the DB29 manages to house five separate hands to indicate the time and chronograph functions on the same central axis. The chronograph is powered by the latest in De Bethune’s series of significant horological innovations: The “absolute clutch”, for which the brand has filed a patent, harnesses the advantages of vertical and horizontal clutch mechanisms yet eradicates their disadvantages. This new system controls the chronograph seconds, while the minute counter is controlled by a shifting pinion and the hour counter (which unusually runs up to 24 hours) is engaged by a horizontal clutch. These three semi-autonomous systems are governed by three separate column wheels.

Little of this complexity is visible on the dial side, however, which remains a model of clarity in true De Bethune style. A single push-button, embedded in the crown, is used to operate the chronograph and a well-thought-out dial uses curvature to highlight the various scales that radiate out from the centre, starting with the 24-hour chronograph counter, then the large Arabic hour numerals, then the 60-minute counter and ultimately, around the very edge of the dial, the 1/10th of a second increments for the chronograph that can be timed out by the DB2039 calibre hand-wound movement, which operates at 36,000 vibrations per hour and offers an impressive 5-day power reserve.
The return of the bullhead

With a whole series of new chronographs at its disposal, TAG Heuer opted to field the Carrera “Dashboard” chronograph in this year’s Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix. It is a fitting choice, since it is inspired, as its name suggests, by the Heuer dashboard timers of times past, but also by the Carrera Mikrogirder model that won the Aiguille d’Or in 2012 and led to other brands launching re-editions of vintage “bullhead” chronographs with the crown and pushers at the top of the case.

The latest Carrera “Dashboard” model is, however, presented in line with current tastes in a 45mm steel and titanium case with a black titanium-carbide coated bezel and a matching soft-touch black alligator leather strap with black titanium clasp. The dark theme is completed with a smoked sapphire crystal case back, through which the brand’s proven Calibre 1887 movement can be admired.

Passion comes in many forms. Mr. Carlo Riva exhibited his passion through the design of the sleek, wooden power boats that graced the planet’s finest lakes from 1950. In 1998, the Riva Historical Society was founded with the aim of locating and aiding in the conservation and restoration of the magnificent Riva boats. As a salute to the iconic Riva water craft and the passion that spawned them, Frederique Constant introduces the 2014 limited edition Runabout Chronograph Automatic Collection.

Both are powered by the ultra-precise FC-393 automatic chronograph movement, offering 28,800 beats per hour, 25 jewels and 46-hour power reserve.

Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix Sports watches

— A sports Rolex Replica watches can mean different things to different people, which the rules of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix take into account with the vaguest definition in the whole competition for this category.

In order to be eligible for submission in the sports watch category of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix, a watch merely has to be “related to the world of sports”. What this means in practice is that the watches submitted in this category cover a variety of domains.

Aviation meets sport

Take Perrelet’s Turbine Pilot, for example, the unique feature of which is reminiscent of the blades of a jet turbine. This Pilot model in particular also comes with a circular aviation slide rule that underscores the aviation theme, as well as a distinctly aeronautical black and yellow hashing visible when the turbine spins. But with its big 48mm diameter case in stainless steel, available with or without a black PVD coating, and large luminescent hour numerals, the Perrelet Turbine Pilot undoubtedly has a very sporty look that earns it a place in this category.

Weight loss

Because of its pedigree, Zenith’s El Primero is one of the stars in the Chronograph category of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix. But the brand has also submitted the new El Primero Lightweight model in the Sports watch category, since it has been engineered under the influence of high-tech motorsports, where everything must be done to remove superfluous weight.

As a result, the El Primero Lightweight comes with a 45mm carbon case and its major movement components (mainplate, barrel bridge, balance bridge, chronograph bridge, lever bridge and escape-wheel bridge) are machined from titanium rather than the more common – and much heavier – brass. As well as looking resplendent with its ruthenium coating, this El Primero Calibre 400B movement is therefore 25% lighter than the standard version.

The lightweight theme is expressed on the outside through an openworked dial and continues right down to the finest details such as the skeletonized date numbers on a peripheral ring. A Nomex-coated black rubber strap completes the lightweight and sporty look of this 250-piece limited edition.

Genuine racing, genuine manufacture

Armin Strom’s Racing collection has more direct sports Swiss Replica Watches credentials, since the bridges on its AMR13-MR calibre self-winding movement are made from parts of the original engine block of a Formula 1 car. It also has PVD-coated steel elements on the case, with a dash of titanium and a sporty rubber strap. But there the similarities with the Zenith El Primero end.

Rather than to save weight, the openworked dial on this model is part of a tradition of skeletonisation that was inherent to the work of Armin Strom himself and reveals a movement that beats at half the frequency of the Zenith El Primero (18,000 vibrations per hour, compared with 36,000 for the El Primero). Note the off-centred time indications on the dial, which are a subtle indication of the movement’s true in-house provenance. Only a company that truly manufactures its own components, as Armin Strom does, can allow itself such freedom. Only 50 examples of this exclusive model, which offers an impressive five-day power reserve, are available.

Gunning for glory

One of the most obviously sporty models in the Sports watch category at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix this year is the limited-edition Arsenal Aeroscope Chronograph by JeanRichard. It was presented at Baselworld earlier this year only weeks after the brand surprised observers by becoming an official partner of the club – a prescient move, since the “Gunners” went on to win the 2014 FA Cup.

A stylized small-seconds hand in the shape of a cannon, the club’s emblem that gives them their nickname, and the more obvious red background to the dial clearly distinguish this timepiece as an Arsenal watch. A sandblasted, DLC-coated titanium case and bezel with pushers in carbon fibre composite further accentuate the sporty look of this model, which is powered by a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement that offers 42 hours of power reserve.

So whether you are fan of football, Formula 1, military aviation or just high-tech and lightweight Fake Rolex Watches UK, there is plenty to choose from in the sports category at this year’s Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix. The jury has the last word, but will it blow the final whistle or wave the chequered flag?
