Replica U-Boat Watches, Best Luxury Watches Replica
The U-Boat name is a major force in the world of luxury watches; a notable accomplishment for its mere 12-year history. This Italian watch company derives its name from the marine-theme designs for which the company is best known. U-Boat models are unmistakable, with blocky crowns at the 9 o'clock position, thus situated in order to allow divers full wrist motion underwater, simple dials, often with Arabic Numerals at only the 4, 8 and 12 o'clock positions, and extremely oversized cases. U-Boat is the current world record holder for largest case size, measuring in at a massive 64.4 mm. Through a rigorously selective process in choosing materials, such as titanium, sterling silver, and 18k gold, in addition to details such as Superluminova hands and markers, U-Boats are regarded as some of the most desirable luxury models on the market.
Hanhart - Primus Diver's Chronograph
... Today naval officers, leisure sailors and divers wear Hanhart wristwatches or use Hanhart stopwatches. Like J?rg Wunning from Luneburg (Germany), who, in association with an Australian partner, has offered extraordinary journeys in a submersible since 1996 - including to the wreck of the Titanic, to the ocean floor at the geographic North Pole or to the underwater volcanoes in the Azores. The 39-year-old environmental scientist is the owner of a travel agency and arranges these exclusive trips for Deep Ocean Expeditions. The expeditions to depths of 6,000 metres are undertaken in MIR submersibles. These submersibles, which were built in Finland in 1987 and are owned by the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, carry navigational equipment including an echo sounder, ranging sonar and a compass. "A stopwatch also has a place here because U-boat captains used Hanhart timepieces in the past", declares J?rg Wunning. Worldwide, 49 of these exclusive diving missions have already taken place. Three underwater volcanoes in the Pacific and in the Atlantic were discovered in the process. Other diving missions participated in extensive oceanologic research as well as the recording of film material of the Titanic, the ocean-going giant which sank on 15 April 1912. The next "Operation Titanic" will set out in 2010. A new group of adventurers will then embark on a descent by submersible to the world's most famous historical wreck - precisely 368 sea miles east of Newfoundland and 12,460 feet beneath the surface of the ocean.
