Black back: 3 new watches with Patek Philippe, Hublot and Omega black dials
"I saw a red door, I hope it is painted black. There is no color, I hope they become black.".
In terms of the color of the dial, I am like the Rolling Stones - as are many other best replica watches review lovers. In recent years, it has been particularly rich in the watch world, with many new green and blue dials; however, black is also beautiful - black is definitely coming back.
Here are three fascinating examples of placing black under the spotlight: the dark side has never been so bright.
Patek Philippe Calatrava Alert Travel Time Reference 5520P: Rising Sun Black
We have often heard that all important matters in the field of high-end watches have been invented and no longer break new things.
Then, Patek Philippe once again proved that these attitudes are wrong. At the Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show in 2019, the historic Swiss manufacturer introduced its highly sophisticated Calatrava Travel Time GMT watch, which features a complex 24-hour alarm function that can be integrated directly into the movement.
Calatrava Travel Time first debuted in 2015, making it the first of its kind and the first choice for Swiss high-end watchmaking. Not surprisingly, Patek Philippe places the Calatrava Alarm Travel Time in its sophisticated, sophisticated collection, which is comparable to the brand's most technologically advanced timepieces – watches including repeaters, permanent calendars, tourbillons and second hand chronographs.HUBLOT CLASSIC FUSION FERRARI GT 526.NX.0124.VR
For fans of the "Dark" watch, the stunning ebony black sunburst dial on this masterpiece makes it a true eye feast.
Although the alarm is usually not considered a high-end complex function, the clever mechanism of the newly designed automatic Calibre AL 30-660 SC FUS is being produced and created specifically for this model, taking the function to a whole new level. Calatrava Travel Time now displays an accurate mechanical digital indication of the 24-hour alarm time at 12 o'clock.
If this is not enough, just look at a small bell above the alarm aperture to see if the alarm is on or off. Like the date, the alarm clock is combined with local time, which is very convenient for travelers.
The alarm clock has excellent sound quality, and the loud volume is enough for its owner to wake it up in an elegant way: its mono ring is up to 40 seconds and taps 2.5 times per second.
The Calatrava Travel Time mechanism is no different from the minute repeater: the centrifugal governor under the bridge ensures regular and continuous strikes. Therefore, it requires considerable energy to maintain the rhythm, so it is equipped with its own independent spring tube, which is wrapped by its own crown at 4 o'clock. Built-in clutch prevents accidental over-winding.

All hands on the table
The brand's travel time feature was first introduced in 1997 and uses two central hands to indicate local and family time. When the family hour hand is hollowed out, the minute and hour hands showing local time are filled with Super-LumiNova for maximum legibility in the dark - bold Arabic numerals contrast sharply with the glossy black background.
These hour hands are equipped with two day/night indicators, small round holes - home time is 3:30, local time is 8:30. As a result, this GMT watch offers a clean and almost intuitive layout that is difficult to climb.
I especially like the bold numbers of the retro aviator style and the prominent date dial at 6 o'clock.
Despite the fascinating view of the dial, the Calatrava Travel Time's platinum case turned to reward us with the Calibre AL 30-660 SC FUS, which, although only 6.6 mm high, contains no less than 574 components.
Through the sapphire crystal, you can discover Patek Philippe's elaborate decorations and decorations, as well as the mute governor under the gilded Calatrava cross.
In addition, Calatrava Alarm Travel Time is the manufacturer's first large and complex feature with a waterproof case for everyday use.
I believe that Patek Philippe has once again upgraded the design of high-end watch systems. This high-end watch design is easy to use everyday. This clever and complicated function is included in the elegant old-fashioned pilot design.FRANCK MULLER VANGUARD replica watches
