Swiss Made Rolex Replicas
Sure, that is what one would expect to happen, but I do believe it would be an interesting idea to have a co-branded watch where the movement is marked as Jaeger-LeCoultre. It could possibly make for a collectors' item later on, plus would add that extra bit of credibility in terms of technical prowess – a Ralph Lauren movement means and says nothing, and that is perfectly fine. They reached out to one of the greatest movement suppliers in the Swiss watch industry – which is no surprise, as both brands are owned by the same luxury group, Richemont – so why not make the most of it?
Comprising 318 parts, the movement is 34.6 millimeters wide and 8.15 millimeters thick and runs at 3 Hertz (21,600 vibrations per hour). The hefty movement makes for an even larger case: 45 millimeters in diameter and 16.4 in thickness, the Rotonde de Cartier style case is as massive as it has ever been. By contrast, the Rotonde de Cartier "small complication" (debuted here) with a date and power reserve is 8.94 millimeters thick – fully cased. Done in 18k pink gold and featuring the trademark Cartier cabochon set into the crown, the Rotonde de Cartier Tourbillon Chronograph certainly isn't the most agile-looking iteration of the Rotonde – but that is the price to pay for such mechanical complexity and extensive power reserve.
I tend to like nature-inspired design, so the biomorphic elements of the Space Pirate watch speak to me. I wouldn't call it the world's most elegant or beautiful design. In fact it may not even be beautiful at all (though it is certainly very pretty from some angles). Rather, I consider the design visually appealing and very interesting. It is highly artistic as a functional item, and from my perspective, it has a lot of merit from an aesthetic angle as being well conceived and unique. In other words, while the MB&F HM6 might not win any awards for traditional timepiece elegance, it has the makings of a museum piece, and I'd be happy (and excited) to wear it.
