BRM V12-44 Chronograph Strap Checkered Racing Strap
BRM should be the favorite replica luxury watchesmaker for French enthusiasts, racing fans and watch lovers. Bernard Richards brings a love of racing and a desire to express himself in the same style and aesthetic. BRM (Bernard Richard Manufacture) makes incredibly unique and almost whimsical watches for those who love racing or unique style.
The French are actually impressive watchmakers and designers. The rapidly rising Bell & Ross is French. Tag Heuer and Zenith are owned by the French, while some great "artistic" watchmakers like Alain Silberstein are French.
More on other times of French watchmaking. Let's look at BRM V12-44. This is a super racing-themed watch that can be seen at a glance. Unlike other "racing watch" manufacturers, BRM focuses on the mechanics of the race car, not just the theme or appearance. Therefore, each of his watches contains some elements of a racing engine. The V12 range focuses on retro styling and serves as a reminder of when cars were truly bolted together. The highly polished screws that cover most surfaces remind us of hand craftsmanship and lasting strength. It further relates to the rich chrome that vintage race cars enjoyed. The large crown and pushrod are designed to resemble engine pistons and feature valves.replica BRM ART CAR Watches
The lines, and bolted to the lugs, add to the "construction" quality of the watch. My interpretation of the case is that it should resemble a racing wheel (without the tires of course), while the dial of the watch is a retro racing dashboard. Various holes in parts, such as the hands, hint at weight-saving techniques commonly used in high-performance machinery. In most cases, adding holes in structural elements can save weight. I don't think BRM took Swiss cheese into account.
Inside the watch you'll find an updated ETA Valjoux 7753 "Valgranes" which is basically an updated and bigger Valjoux 7750. The functions provide the time, date and a 12-hour chronograph, which integrates nicely here with a tri-compax sub-dial array. I do like the way the rear window is placed for viewing the movement in a lightly trimmed fashion. The watch itself is 44mm wide without a crown; good size.Richard Mille RM 011 Titanium Brown
One of the real stars here is the leather strap. The ethnic-inspired gingham pattern is a true hand-stitched interweaving design. I've seen many check straps, but this one is by far the best that separates the black and red leather. The clasp looks beautiful and matches the style of the rest of the watch perfectly.
