Watch manufacturer Fossil to acquire fitness wearable company Misfit

BreitlingReplica Watches and wearables have enjoyed a significant amount of attention over the past couple of years. With the advent of sensors on wearable devices, and prices continuing to fall, the adoption of wearable devices has risen phenomenally.

Last month, Swiss luxury watchmaker Frederique Constant launched its range of smartwatches in India. Priced at Rs 60,000 and more, sales of the horological smartwatch, as it is called, were expected to be quite sedate.

Similarly, TAG Heuer, Breitling and several other watch manufacturers have indicated that they would be looking at the smartwatch space very closely.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the Fossil Group has agreed to buy wearable fitness tracker company Misfit for $260 million. Misfit is cofounded by ex-Apple CEO John Sculley.

Since the advent of Xiaomi and companies such as Micromax in the fitness band business, a watchmaker such as Fossil would see immense potential in a wearable with a focus on style, something that Misfit focusses on. Interestingly, Xiaomi invested in Misfit last December.

Certainly, luxury Rolex replica watches would keep an eye out for startups in the fitness wearable space that make lucrative and strategic acquisitions. The capability to offer fitness data makes it a natural extension for a watchmaker.

Breitling Watches“To me it’s not about the value of the sale, it’s about making sure that the client goes away with a treasured item that has been associated with a significant occasion in their life.”

Stephen has worked in the jewellery trade for 27 years after moving straight into it when he left school.

He said: “When I finished I was not sure what I wanted to do and saw a role working for Zales jewellers and thought that looked interesting. I have not looked back since.”

The Canary Wharf store had a revamp in September, showcasing new dedicated branded areas for Omega, Breitling and TAG Heuer.

Omega watchesWe got three facts about Omega.

1. Omega was in fact the first mechanical watch to land on the moon – with the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch in 1969. A year later the same watch played a significant part in helping the astronauts on the Apollo 13 mission return to Earth safely after the shuttle encountered some unforeseen problems.

2. Omega Replica has had a strong affiliation with the James Bond franchise since 1995. The latest piece was sported by Daniel Craig in Spectre. It’s the Seamaster 300 Master Co Axial.

3. The brand is also well known in the world of sport, as they have been timing the Olympics since 1932.

Other notable timepieces to be sold at the prestigious auction include a 1968 Rolex Replica Daytona “Solo Quicksilver”, and an Hermès Cosmograph Daytona watch featuring a “Paul Newman” black dial with gold registers and gilt writing and an “Hermès” stamp on its outer case back.

The auction is estimated to realise over $14 million.

Replica Rolex Explorer II 216570 Watch Review

rolex-explorer-ii-01The Replica Rolex Explorer II, reference 216570, along with the Submariner, GMT Master, and the Datejust, constitute Replica Rolex’s most popular Replica Watches Uk. While the Explorer model, like the others, is a child of the late 1950s; unlike the others, it has two current models, both popular, but also quite different. The first model, the Replica Rolex Explorer, is 39mm and is closest to the original version, while the Explorer II is 42mm and more adapted to modern tastes. In this post, I review the latter model. And while any of the Replica Rolex Explorer models make for a solid tool watch, in this review, I am not taking it to some mountain trekking odyssey, but instead I am doing modern day exploration. My account is based on taking it for a month long journey to Asia, exploring a distant land, an ancient people, and a fascinating culture: China.

rolex-explorer-ii-02First off, the Replica Rolex Explorer was one of the first wristwatches to be designed for exploration, in particular, exploring new lands and varied terrains. While today, a Casio ProTrek or similar solar-powered multifunction watch will serve you well on a distant trek, in the 1950s and early 1960s when real exploration of the poles and the high peaks of the world was taking place, no quartz watch existed. And even today, if you were to attempt to explore the earth’s pole or climb Mt. Everest, the Replica Rolex Explorer might still be a better choice than a quartz device, since these suffer when exposed to high and low temperatures and depend on an external source of power. However, the Replica Rolex Explorer II is guaranteed to work as well as it does day to day even under extreme temperature gradients and with no source of power, except wearing it daily and moving a bit (or winding the crown).

rolex-explorer-ii-04So while in my own “expedition” with the Replica Rolex Explorer II, I was not taking it to extreme conditions, I did take it to what is a somewhat typical modern day traveling journey, including airports, business meetings, business outings, the gym, and also visiting the outdoors in a distant land. In all cases, what was great was the Replica Rolex Explorer II never felt out of place.

rolex-explorer-ii-05At the airport, the first step was to set the local and home time to PDT. As the plane took off and we got an indication of the time in Beijing, using the quick set feature on the hour hand, I simply pulled the crown and moved it forward about 8 timezones for the time in China. Interestingly, unlike many large countries, China has one timezone! It does not matter if you are in the east or western part of China, there is just one. Makes it easy for doing business, I suppose, though I imagine Chinese get a very different experience of time over the year depending on what side of the country they live on.

rolex-explorer-ii-06A great thing about Replica Rolex sports watches, especially modern versions, is that they tend to be multipurpose. That is, they fit well into both business and casual situations as well as the more sporty settings for which they were specifically designed. So during my month long visit, and with various meetings at all levels of the organization, I never had to use any other watch, really. The Replica Rolex Explorer II fit in great.

rolex-explorer-ii-07Its imposing 42mm all-brushed stainless steel case (water resistant to 100 meters) could be a minor issue if you needed to button up for a formal event, as it sits 12mm high on the wrist. However, that was never the case for me, and it fit great under all of my shirts, even when wearing a sports jacket in the cold grey late winter evenings of Beijing.

rolex-explorer-ii-11Besides casual usages while visiting the vast city of Beijing, the occasion I had which most suited the Replica Rolex Explorer II’s origin was when I took a half day trip to the Great Wall of China. First off, the Great Wall is nothing short of extraordinary, spanning miles and miles. The people of this great land constructed a 20-foot wide wall that serpentines the high mountains of northern China, helping separate it from centuries of Mongol invasions. It is commonly considered as one of the seven wonders of the world and for long the only man-made structure visible from outer space.

rolex-explorer-ii-12Getting to the section of the Great Wall our visit meant taking a roller coaster-like small car that took us hundreds of feet into the mountain and into the Wall proper. Of course, once there, comes the fun part. Depending on your fitness level and the time before dawn, you can easily walk and climb this amazing structure for miles and miles. I challenged myself to at least get to four towers, which round trip would be about a hilly 10k. Heck, I had just completed a full Ironman less than a year ago, how bad could this be?

rolex-explorer-ii-13Of course, the Replica Rolex Explorer II was never the issue during my Wall trek, but rather my knees and my feet walking and climbing this amazing structure. Of course, I was also carrying my DSLR camera and made sure to stop, take a breathe, and take some pictures of the vast landscape. The weather was clear, so the view went on for miles. The white face of the Replica Rolex Explorer II was never out of place. And I was very happy to use the 5mm easy link extension to relieve my wrist after a hard day hiking under the sun.

rolex-explorer-ii-14Like many of the modern Replica Rolex sports watches, the Replica Rolex Explorer II comes with the modern Oyster bracelet fully brushed (just like the Submariner), and it is just plain comfortable and screams high quality. The Replica Rolex bracelets are, just like any genuinely well engineered bracelet, adjustable with screws where one can remove full links or half links. Also, the bracelet tapers from 21mm at the lugs to 17mm at the oyster clasp, thereby resulting in a highly wearable 42mm watch. The clasp includes the protective Replica Rolex Oyster lock, but unlike the Submariner, there are no quick adjustments except for the 5mm oyster link which I mentioned makes it easy to extend or reduce the bracelet by 5mm during the day as your wrist expands and contracts.

rolex-explorer-ii-15The Replica Rolex Explorer II comes fitted with the Replica Rolex 3187 caliber which I found to be super accurate (as it is COSC chronometer certified, like all Replica Rolex calibers) and easy to use. It also contains Replica Rolex’s Paraflex system which helps improve the watch’s resistance to shocks, as well as the brand’s Parachrom anti-magnetic hairspring so as to render the movement more resistant to magnetic fields. The quick hour adjust works like a charm, and the date can be advanced forward using this feature. The large orange GMT hand is easily visible and points brilliantly to the black 24-hour markers on the bezel.

rolex-explorer-ii-16The Replica Rolex “Mercedes” hour hand (originally designed to appear totally different to the minute hand for easy legibility) and the minutes hand are larger, bolder than their counterparts on the Submariner or GMT Master II. Also, here they are outlined in black paint and filled with blue Chromalight, whereas on other Replica Rolex models, they tend to be done in 18k white gold. The look is pretty unique to the Replica Rolex Explorer II in Replica Rolex’s line up and has acquired the moniker of “maxi-hands” from collectors. The rest of the dial is in the iconic white “polar” color with cardinal markers and hour markers (round), also with a black painted outline, completing the unique – and uniquely legible – maxi-dial.

rolex-explorer-ii-17While clearly remaining a Replica Rolex with the classic oyster case, the cyclops on the crystal, and the famous Replica Rolex dial, this model is less common than the Submariner and GMT Master II, easily making it the more interesting Replica Rolex if you want a solid sports watch from the famous brand – and hence it is one that you will more rarely see anyone else wearing during the day. As a matter of fact, during my entire time traveling to China, I only spotted one other person wearing a Replica Rolex Explorer II (black dial), though I spotted countless other Replica Rolex sports Replica Watches.

rolex-explorer-ii-18So while the Replica Rolex Explorer II 216570 is not necessarily my absolute favorite Replica Rolex stainless steel sports watch, its imposing size, easy wearability, and lack of popularity make it one that I often go to when I need a modern multi-purpose watch that I can wear for business, casual, or for sporty occasions – and yet that is not a common one. For this exact reason, the Replica Rolex Explorer II was a great companion for my travels, exploring the great land of China and earned a special place in my permanent collection. Price for the Replica Rolex Explorer II 216570 is $8,100.
