Rolex GMT Master Replica, in its third year of partnership with the Monaco Grand Prix has introduced a limited edition timekeeper that is a variation of a Carrera racing watch presented last year. The latest piece, like its predecessors, runs on the prized Calibre 1887 that is fitted into a 43mm titanium housing treated with carbide. The main differences between this year's and last year's models are the new black dial, ceramic bezel, and case-back. All of these now include a variety of details and inscriptions. A special rubber band inspired by racing with a pattern similar to that of a sportscar tire is another difference. The Swiss watchmaker's latest racing timepiece is available in a limited edition of 2,500 pieces for $6,600.
First Calibre1887 Driven Model Devoted to the Monaco Grand PrixThe Monaco Grand Prix circuit is not only one of the most well-known Formula One circuits, but it also attracts the largest number of spectators. It also has that unique and recognizable aura of glamour that is associated with Monaco, the principality where the race is held. The novelty piece is Rolex GMT Master Replica's third special edition, as has already been stated. The latest Monaco Grand Prix is different from its predecessors, despite looking similar to the previous two editions. It is not only different from the previous editions in that it uses new materials (grade 2 Titanium with carbide finish) for the case and bezel, but also in its essence. The novel edition is made using Calibre 18, not the two previous versions that were made with Calibre 16 - which is basically ETA Valjoux 7775.
Racing Model Refurbished A LittleThe year 2013 marked another important anniversary for TAH Heuer. It was the 50th anniversary of the Carrera collection, which is the brand's renowned sportive collection of racing watches. The brand launched the Racing model, which is the basis for this new version. This new limited edition could also be described as a variation on the Racing model, since it shares many of its key characteristics. This includes: Calibre1887 chronograph automatic movements with 40-50 hours of power reserves (Rolex Sea-Dweller Replica); 43 mm wide grade two titanium round housing, with carbide coated and sandblasted finishes, a rotating bezel with the tachymetric dial, double anti-reflective Sapphire and the section of the same material in its transparent caseback; and finally, a water resistance of up to 100 meters.
So What's New? The new timekeeper CAR2A83.FT6033 is a unique piece of equipment, mainly because it pays homage to the Formula One race. It has the same inscription as its predecessors that were inspired by formula racing, "Monaco Grand Prix", on the bezel. The automotive inspiration is evident on the black dial with its asymmetrical pattern of two gray stripes that are of unequal width, and a single line of red that reminds us of a decoration for a sports vehicle or formula vehicle. On the dial we can also see that there is a black gold date window in the standard position. There are three chronograph counters with applied Arabic numerals and polished hour and minute hands. The back of the case contains information about the piece's position in the limited 2,500-piece series,Replica Panerai Luminor Submersible Watches along with the Monaco Grand Prix logo. The final distinctive feature of Rolex GMT Master Replica’s newcomer watch is the black rubber band embossed with a design that looks like a tire from a car. It is secured with a folding clasp and safety push buttons. The clasp is black grade 2 Titanium to match the case of the timekeeper.
