Wholesale Famous Newsletter – Tornare ready to turn around Zenith Replica Wholesale

We start the week with an interview with Zenith’s new CEO Julien Tornare, who plans to give new impetus to the storied brand under the guidance of Jean-Claude Biver.

Before flying off to Bermuda to follow the action at the America’s Cup and see the numerous watch brands involved, Brice Lechevalier shared his thoughts with us on the new Alpina Seastrong Horological Smartwatch. Read his conclusions on Wednesday.

On Thursday you can read my report on the Cartier in Motion exhibition at the Design Museum. Star architect Sir Norman Foster has succeeded in putting the history of Cartier and the evolution of its wristwatches into the context of turn-of-the-century Paris. The exhibition, at the new location of the Design Museum in Kensington, which is an architectural marvel in itself, is well worth a visit. But if you cannot make it, there is a detailed photo gallery in my report showing the most significant exhibits.
The movement is of course more or less fully exposed, and certainly cool looking with an emphasis on the Zenith five-pointed star shaped logo in the movement design itself. The movement has a full 60 hours of power reserve and again operates at 15Hz (108,000 bph). Power reserve is actually 72 hours, but at 60 hours the stable 0.3 – 0.5 seconds per day accuracy drops to 1 second per day. Amplitude is extremely slim with a movement arc of just plus or minus six degrees. The movement is on the thicker side at 8.13mm, but is also only produced out of 148 parts. The ZO 342 is of course an automatic (C?tes de Genève stripes decorate the rotor), and indicates just the time with minutes, hours, and seconds.Theoretically speaking, all-silicon watch movements (we aren’t there yet) should be able to decrease the cost, while upgrading the performance of your standard mechanical watch. Though for now (and for a while), silicon will continue to be a more or less exotic material in the mechanical watch world that brands will ask customers to pay a bit of a premium for. So long as the products that contain such movements look like the Zenith Defy Lab, or other ultra-modern mechanical timepieces, I think customers will be willing.

We conclude the week with Nazanin Lankarani’s impressions of this year’s Rallye des Princesses, sponsored by Richard Mille, which took place around the same time that Richard Mille unveiled its stunning new RM 27-03 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal. Proof that the brand is about more than just toys for boys.

In our June competition you can win a limited-edition Nautilo Sailing model from Anonimo worth 1,990 Swiss francs. This model is part of a colourful collection that is perfect for the summer. I was fortunate enough to see all four watches on the very racing yacht of the SFS team to which this limited edition is dedicated. Find out more later this week.
