Luxury Rolex Wraps up Successful Season Prize Watches

There are two most prestigious sponsored sailing events of Rolex, which just wrapped up with some very skilled and happy yachtsmen walking away with priceless specially engraved award watches. The replica Rolex Big Boat Series in San Francisco and the fake Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup are two of the greatest sailing competitions on the annual calendar, and some of the sailors and yacht owners are already Rolex owners. But no matter how many Rolexes you might own there is still no higher honor than “winning the watch” in any sporting event, and sailing is a sure stuff. best Rolex
The best Rolex chooses to award the stainless steel Submariners in these regattas, demonstrating the versatility and universal appeal of the ultimate sports watch. Different from these retail versions, these are particularly engraved and come in special green leather presentation boxes. While many yachtsmen decide to wear their award watches there are always some who lock them away for preservation. Very rarely do you see these pieces, which cannot be acquired by other means, come up for sale.
At the Rolex Big Boat Series, Rolex awarded six Submariners to winners of the so-called perpetual trophies, the top yachtsmen in their class. This was the 53rd running of the prestigious race, which is hosted by the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco Bay. The series is comprised of seven races taking place over four days, with winners anointed in eleven different classes. This year there were 89 magnificent yachts competing for the awards. The ultra-prestigious perpetual trophies are kept at the St. Francis Yacht Club and are very much impressive than the kind you get to take home. Coupled with the fact that the winners receive Rolexes, their names are engraved on the trophies for all to admire. One of these is the City of San Francisco Trophy, which is actually a gold-plated shovel used to break ground on the Golden Gate Bridge in 1933, and it’s understandably one of the most coveted trophies in sailing. This year the Pac 52 yacht Beau Geste took the prize.  
The Rolex replica  New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup is one of the most gentlemanly events you’ll ever see in Newport. The New York Yacht Club in of course one of the most special clubs in the world, and races are hard fought in Narragansett Bay. This year the Southern Yacht Club in New Orleans, founded in 1849, came up to beat the Northerners on their home sea. Defeating their closest competitors, the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron from Australia, along with 12 other yacht clubs from around the World, SYC effusively claimed the trophy and the prize replica watches in what has been called the “ultimate one-design, big-boat competition.”

Michael Phelps’s Omega Watch – a Tribute to the Famed Olympian

As we all know that American swimming legend Michael Phelps is an very outstanding athlete. But did you know that he is actually the most decorated Olympian of all time? Phelps has captured a total of 28 Olympic medals in his illustrious career, 23, of which, are gold. An achievement which apparently deserves a special edition Omega has been made there. The famous Swiss watch brand has it covered in the form of the new Seamaster Planet Ocean “Michael Phelps”. omega
The new ocean blue timepiece is very natty looking with bright orange highlights, and suits Phelps’ style to a tee – sporty and cool. The 45.5 mm steel cased watch characterized a special ceramic and rubber uni-directional bezel. Polished blue-tinted ceramic lends into bright orange rubber for the first 15 minutes, crucial in timing olympic events. The Planet Ocean collection of Seamsters is Omega’s most sports-minded replica watches.
The Planet Ocean is designed for divers, and the diving scale, as well as the dot at 12 o’clock, is finished with Super-LumiNova which presents with a slight greenish glow, while the lume on the minute scale is calibrated to glow blue to counteract confusion under water. The dial is finished in white ceramic with blued indexes and an Arabic numeral 12 in orange, complimenting the bezel. Hour, seconds and counter hands are also blued and feature a blue treatment to match the indexes, while the minute hands are tinted green aligning with the dot at 12 o’clock. The casebook features a wave pattern and is engraved with “PLANET OCEAN”, “600 m / 2000 ft”, “LIMITED EDITION” and the serial number as well as a “Michael Phelps” logo surrounding the sapphire crystal exhibition window. This allows a look at the replica Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9900, one of the watchmaker’s most beautiful and significant movements, designed and produced in-house. 
The particular timepiece, which features a helium escape valve, comes on a blue rubber strap with a blue and orange lining and orange contrast stitching. The domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal features an anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The Seamaster Planet Ocean “Michael Phelps” edition comes with only 280 pieces, honoring Phelps’ lifetime medal count. Omega calls him “the greatest athlete in the history of aquatic sport” and we’d have to agree. Phelps has been a “friend” of the fake Omega since 2004, is a longtime Seamaster wearer and has been the guest of honor at several Omega events. Not quite a brand ambassador but the association is definitely highly beneficial for Omega, to say the least. So we’d think that special among some limited edition tribute watches this is one that the honoree will surely wear and use.
