Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Large Date And Moon Phases is a refreshing drop in the ocean of repetitive, often not very interesting vintage-revival or vintage-inspired watches. In fact, if the brand debuted it just this year, it would still be a very interesting contender among high-end wrist watches. Let’s see what makes the Vintage 1945 special – even if it is not without its minor flaws.
Rado includes a lengthy good reputation for materials innovation within their watches, most notoriously with super-hard ceramics that hold one finish. For review is one thing entirely a new comer to me, a plasma-implanted ceramic watch that appears like stainless. Let us have a look.
This watch’s title may be the Rado D-Star Gents L, Plasma Ceramic. The model reference number is 658.0760.3.010. They call the movement a quality 658, but we title it ETA 2824-2. It’s 144g around the bracelet, water-resistant to 100m regardless of the non-screw down crown. The situation is 40.8mm by 11.4 to the top domed azure very, and 46.9mm carry to carry. The integrated bracelet tapers from 23.4mm lower to 21. and it is 3mm thick, having a push button clasp and titanium folding bits.
The Richard Mille RM002 may be the watch that got me totally hooked on “exotic” watches. In early 2000’s, like the majority of others, I’d no clue that $100,000 watches been around. The concept was simply absurd. Why would anybody spend much on the watch? How would it often be worthwhile?
