2015 Rolex Replica Middle Sea Race – Modern day racing, mythic setting

With less than three weeks until the start of the 36th Rolex Middle Sea Race on Saturday, 17 October, over 100 teams from 22 nations are preparing for another historic edition of the most important offshore race in the Mediterranean. The race will take off from Grand Harbour, with the international fleet crossing the starting line at the sound of the Saluting Battery cannons.

The Rolex Middle Sea Race is the final event of the Mediterranean yachting season. Since its inception in 1968, it has positioned Malta on the international offshore racing map that includes exclusive races such as the Rolex Replica Sydney Hobart Yacht Race in the Pacific and the Rolex Fastnet Race in the North Atlantic.

The ideal course

The 606-nautical-mile course circumnavigates Sicily anticlockwise, starting and finishing in Malta. Professional and Corinthian sailors consider it one of the most beautiful and varied races in the world, and while navigators agree, they would add that it is also one of the toughest and most demanding. Steeped in mythology and history, the Rolex Middle Sea Race starts in the spectacular amphitheatre of Valletta’s Grand Harbour, then heads North to the Strait of Messina leaving Sicily to port, and continues, passing the active volcano of Stromboli followed by the Aeolian and Egadi islands, then Pantelleria and Lampedusa, before returning through the South Comino Channel and the final stretch to the finish, off the Royal Malta Yacht Club.

The line-up

In the battle for the overall win, the race is as open as ever. Defending champion and local hero Artie will try and repeat her historic achievement, but over 100 opponents face the challenge with the same objective.

Three renowned multihulls, MOD70s Musandam-Oman Sail and Phaedo3, as well as Nigel Irens’ 63 Parado are expected to lead the fleet around the racecourse. In the meantime, George David’s Rambler, the American record holder, will be aiming for the prestigious line honours victory among the fleet of monohulls.

Fastest Rambler

Back in 2007, George David’s 90ft maxi Rambler took the triple crown in the Fake Rolex Uk Middle Sea Race, with an overall victory, line honours and racecourse record, completing the race in 47 hours, 55 minutes and three seconds. None of the 583 participating yachts since then have been able to beat this record, including four time line honours winner Esimit Europa 2 (SLO), whose best time was set in 2010, yet was seven hours slower than Rambler’s. In 2009, Mike Slade’s ICAP Leopard (GBR) finished 24 minutes and 30 seconds off record pace. Rambler is the only yacht that has ever finished the race in less than two days.

Eight years later, George David returns with a new weapon: his 88ft Juan Kouyoumdjian designed Rambler 88, a canting keeled rocket ship launched in 2014 that showed her potential, finishing second both in the New York Yacht Club Transatlantic Race in July and the Rolex Replica Watches Fastnet Race in August, just behind Jim Clark’s powerful 100ft Comanche (USA). The line honours victory and the perspective of setting a new course record, weather permitting, are two of Rambler’s goals this year for the Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Rolex Replica gets slick with the all-new Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master Everose

As one of the big players at Baselworld 2015 (backed up by the fact they apparently have the largest pavilion at the fair, with a colossal 1,625sq metres spread over two floors), we always look forward to seeing what Rolex Replica has in store for our wrists for the coming year. Turns out the new year is all about breaking with its ultra-traditional image, starting with the sleek and sporty new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master.

Arriving in shops this summer, this model features this model’s first-ever black and 18ct Everose gold face with a co-ordinating black ceramic bezel and Chromalight hands and hour markers that emit a beautiful blue glow after dark.

Crucially it also features a black rubber strap – but, being a Fake Rolex Watch, this isn’t just any old rubber strap (as the Rolex representative in the meeting herself said, “we don’t do rubber straps”). The watchmaker has invested and patented an all-new strap type: the Oysterflex bracelet, a super-thin metal blade is overmolded with high performance, supple black elastomer.

Essentially this means it’s far more robust than its rubber counterparts as it’s more resistant to environmental effects, but with a longitudinal cushion system on the inside of the strap, it will also be more stable on your wrist.

Guaranteed to be waterproof to a depth of 100m, the model comes in both 37mm and 40mm dial iterations – so you’re sorted no matter the thickness of your wrist.

Rolex Replica worth $26K stolen from downtown hotel change room

Toronto police are searching for a Rolex replica watch that was stolen from a change-room locker at a downtown hotel swimming pool more than two months ago.

On July 17, police were called to the Eaton Chelsea Hotel at 33 Gerrard St. W. shortly after the noon hour for reports of a stolen watch.

A man told them that around 11:30 a.m., he had gone to the swimming pool on the 27th floor and had put his belongings, including the replica watches, in a locker.

Sometime over the next hour, someone went into the locker and took the watch.

The watch is a Rolex Replica Sea-Dweller 1665, and is worth about $26,000.

Police are asking anyone with information or who “knows of any person who has recently and inexplicably come into possession of the same type of watch” to contact investigators.

Anyone with information can call 416-808-5200 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS.

Deconstructed: Rolex Replica Milgauss, Ref. 1019, circa 1980

A timepiece with a rich history, the Rolex Replica Milgauss reference 1019 was designed with both beauty and functionality in mind

The Rolex name has become synonymous with functionality, remarkable durability, and excellent designs, which explains the brand’s popularity with both dedicated collectors and those not obsessed with watches, as well as the growing interest in more obscure vintage references.

Since the iconic Rolex Replica Watches models which we now know and love were initially produced with purely purpose-driven intentions, many possess rich histories. The Milgauss reference 1019 is no exception. For a period of time, this antimagnetic watch didn’t get the same level of exposure or attention as the Submariner or GMT-Master, which were produced in far greater quantities, but demand is now greater than ever for vintage Milgauss models, and with good reason.

A replica watch made for CERN

The original Milgauss story begins in the late 1950s, when CERN, the famed European nuclear research organization, began working with Rolex to develop a wristwatch that suited their needs. The watch in question needed to be able to keep time accurately while in the presence of strong magnetic forces. As a result of this request, the minds at Fake Rolex Uk came up with a clean, legible, and nicely sized piece, complete with a special Faraday cage surrounding the movement, which could protect the watch from magnetic fields as powerful as 1000 gauss. This of course is where the name Milgauss comes from. In order to accommodate the Faraday cage, the Milgauss reference 1019 was sized to 38 millimeters in diameter, making it larger and slightly more suitable to modern sensibilities than its more common Day-Date and Datejust siblings.

Why detail equals desirability

One thing to note about the reference 1019, much like many other vintage Replica Rolex references, is the sheer number of variants that Rolex manufactured back in the day. One noteworthy family of examples within this reference are the famed CERN dial 1019s. They can be most readily recognized by their silver dials that were produced without the addition of any luminous plots or luminous material in the hands, so that the radioactivity of the tritium compound would not interfere with any radioactive testing. This is just one of the many reasons why certain individuals focus their collections on vintage Replica Rolex, as the slightest minute details and nuances can significantly influence the desirability of a particular piece, thus making ‘the hunt’ much more exciting.

The exclusivity of the 1019

Today, this particular reference is highly regarded by experts and notable figures within the community, for a number of reasons. First, within the world of vintage Rolex, a Submariner, Daytona, or Sea-Dweller’s pricing can be greatly shaped by whether or not it bears red text. Such examples are rarer than their solely white counterparts, so the fact that all reference 1019s possess red Milgauss text, along with a red-tipped seconds hand is quite intriguing to say the least. Furthermore, knowing that Rolex produced far fewer examples of the 1019 than other references makes ownership considerably more exclusive.

Luckily for the Rolex Replica UK faithful, the model was reintroduced at Baselworld in 2007 after nearly 20 years of a Milgauss being absent in the Rolex collection. This reintroduction sparked further interest in vintage references like the 1019. The collector who is ahead of the curve will undoubtedly be able to see tremendous importance and a bright future for the reference 1019, particularly those with the uncommon black dials and in extraordinary condition.

Ecuador’s president to auction off a gold Replica Rolex to build houses for the poor

Ecuador’s socialist president is planning to hold an online auction to sell off several gifts he and his son have received during official trips abroad, including a shiny gold Rolex replica watches from the emir of the oil-rich Gulf country of Qatar.

During a weekend radio address, President Rafael Correa said he also plans to auction off a gift from the Chinese government: a bicycle painted in Ecuador’s national colors of yellow, red and blue. The bike was reportedly a gift from Chinese President Xi Jinping during Correa’s state visit earlier this year.

Correa, a firebrand leftist, said he intends to use the proceeds from the auction to finance the construction of a “few houses” for the poor.

“We’re going to raise some funds,” Correa said. “Miguelito has already decided who he’s going to help with the money,” he added, referring to his son. “But we’re not going to say just yet.”

Most of the gifts Correa usually receives are donated to a museum.

Gold Rolexes Replica can cost anywhere from tens of thousands of dollars to over a million dollars. So it’s hard to know if the announcement was a bit of political theater, or if the president can actually raise enough money from peddling his watch and bike to build a few homes — the kind that come with roofs.

Correa said the auction will be held on social media, but didn’t say when.
