Reviews Longines Avigation BigEye Slim Dials Alligator Leather Strap Watches

The case and dial

The Longines Avigation BigEye replica watches are inspired by vintage aviation type chronograph. Congruous with the design aesthetics of pilots’ watches, the dial is highly readable, with large font hour markers, and the pushers are sized larger than on classic timepieces. This is to enable the wearer to handle them while wearing gloves.

Its semi-glossy black dial is decorated with Arabic numerals coated with SuperLuminova©, and displays a small second hand at 9 o’clock as well as a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock. The oversized 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock throws off the traditional symmetry of a chronograph dial, but can be interpreted as adding a touch of creativity to the otherwise all classic design.

The stainless steel case measures 41 mm in diameter and is water resistant to 30 meters. It is fit with a domed sapphire crystal glass with several layers of anti-reflective coating. To complete the look, a nubuck texture leather strap is used. The case finish is military inspired, with a brushed finish along the center case and a polished thin step bezel. The lugs look raw and straightforward, which is in line with the overall design aesthetic.

The movement

Longines has a long history in watchmaking innovation. They hold the patent of the flyback chronograph movemnt Longines fake watches and have produced several notable mechanical chronographs. But of concern of us today, is the column wheel chronograph which they produced the world’s first in 1878.

In 2011, Longines added the L688 column wheel chronograph to the Heritage collection. The movement is still used in the collection today, as with this Avigation Bigeye. The movement is roughly based off the Valjoux 7750 and bears its thickness, made distinct by watch case profiles which house the movements. That said, the column wheel chronograph is a bargain by today’s market standards, price-wise it’s packed between notable movements like the Japanese-made Seiko chronograph movement (used in TagHeuer) and the Swiss-made Zenith El Primero. Performance wise, the movement is robust and time tested, a practical automatic caliber with 54 hours of power reserve.

Overall, the Longines copy leather strap watches arewell-designed and a welcome addition to the Heritage line. The case, dial and movement are ideal and in an almost formulaic fashion, the watch ticks all major requirements. At S$3980, the watch is priced competitively and goes head to head with its competitor Tudor; which employs similar product type offerings. As for us, we like the watch. It looks good and is a good addition to any collection. Then again, whether the market is starting to get ‘retro’ fatigue is another story altogether.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon Grey Dial Replica Watches

‘Novelty’ is one of the most abused words in the watch industry. Practically, it’s used to describe the steady stream of new models and designs being produced by watchmaking brands. But on top of that, it conveys a sense of newness and — marketing departments fervently hope — excitement. For example, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 2017 novelties were their Master Control trilogy — they excited people, and rightfully so. And while this grey-dialled Master Ultra Thin Moon is a new release, it’s not really a novelty — it didn’t make headlines at SIHH, and doesn’t showcase any innovations in mechanics or material. But despite this (or perhaps because of it), this serious, Jaeger-LeCoultre replica ghostly grey Master Ultra Thin Moon is an exceptionally beautiful piece of watchmaking, the sort that JLC excels at.

If you’re not familiar with the MUT Moon (as it’s sometimes known), here’ s the two-minute rundown. First introduced in 2012, this perfectly sized 39mm white gold dress watch is a case study on just how well Jaeger-LeCoultre does thin watchmaking. At 9.9mm tall it’s slender, but not exceptionally so, partially due to the complicated nature of the movement. On the other hand, it does feel pleasingly solid on the wrist, avoiding that anxiety-inducing delicate wafer vibe that is so often part and parcel of the ultra slim experience. And, as you’d expect from JLC, the movement is lovely. The Calibre automatic movement Jaeger-LeCoultre fake watches, well finished with a pink gold rotor. The time/date/moon set up necessitates 246 parts and is good for 43 hours of power reserve. Finishing is superior and the whole kit and caboodle has been tested for 1000 hours (nigh on six weeks) to ensure it will stand up to the rigours of the real world.

While the insides of this watch are important — and a big part of the story — for me it’s all about that dial. A subtle, sliver grey starburst that is refinement incarnate. The design of this watch is an exercise in textural contrast. Everything except the night sky of the moon phase is grey, silver or white, which you would think would cause a washed-out look. Nothing could be further from the truth. The satin-y dial provides a soft backdrop to the hard polished facets of the hour markers and dauphine hands, while the minimal white text is present, legible but in no way obtrusive. The domed sapphire crystal and narrow bezel ensure that this harmonious, balanced design is always shown in the best possible light. Beauty, thy name is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon limited edition copy watches.
