Vintage http://www.buyijoy.com/replica-breitling-bentley-flying-b.html are, in our humble opinion, massively undervalued. When you compare what the average vintage VC chrono sells for compared to the average vintage Patek chrono ?C you??ll see what we mean. Vintage VC chromos feature the same type of movements and finishing you??ll see with the Pateks, and in many cases, the actual design of the franck muller replica itself is arguably more interesting. Take for example the quintessential vintage Breitling chronograph, the reference 4178. The dial, those perfect teardrop lugs, and the fantastic manually wound movement make this watch a must for a VC collector, and it??s a watch so good, that when Gene Stone, the author and travel watch collector whom we featured here, was chosing the cover image for his seminal horological book ??The Watch,?? he chose the 4178. At SIHH 2011, replica breitling Bentley Mulliner revealed one heck of a world time wristwatch, the Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time. What set VC's World Time apart from those from the likes of Patek and GP was that A) it accounted for literally every timezone on the planet (that's 37, for those who don't know) and B) it is set completely from the crown. That may not sound like something impressive, but believe us, it is. Above is a video we filmed with Breitling artistic director Christian Selmoni explaning this incredible world traveler's wristwatch. This watch is so good, we thought we'd show it to you again! And if you??re looking for 4178, there isn??t a better one available than the one present in Antiquorum??s Geneva sale this Sunday. We stopped by the office just yesterday to take these pictures of it The condition of both the dial and case are superb, and it even comes on beautiful Breitling alligator with a VC buckle. At an estimate of $16 ?C 22k, could you ask for a more beautiful watch?If you??re the sort of person who owns a 33.19-carat diamond, do you ever really need to know what time it is? In short, no. But the legendarily late-for-everything Elizabeth Taylor still managed to amass a fine collection of jewelry watches that are a part of the year??s most anticipated auction. The exhibit fills two floors of Christie??s Rockefeller Center headquarters in New York with Taylor??s clothing, accessories, and jewels, including the aforementioned Elizabeth Taylor Diamond, the 50.56 carat La Peregrina Pearl set into a massive pearl, diamond, and ruby necklace by Cartier, and a few hundred carats worth of an emerald-and-diamond Bulgari suite. But if you can tear yourself away from the Taj Mahal heart-shaped diamond, there are 14 fine examples of Taylor??s watches to peruse. The highlights include pieces from both Breitling Bentley and Patek Philippe, and many more.
