It isn't clear who will own the watch. It is likely that the British government isn't allowed to purchase things for individual use, so the watch will likely remain "owned" by Roger Smith and given to the government on loan for an extended period of time. If I had to put a retail value on the Roger Smith GREAT Britain watch I'd say perhaps £150,000. rwsmithwatches.com
IWC Replica Watches New Trailer
Breguet officially launched the Classique Chronometrie ref. 7727 watch in 2012 and we have a full hands-on look with video (here). That was at Baselworld 2012 and we really liked it then. At Baselworld 2013 the 7727 was back, with a minor change on the dial, and available in both 18k rose gold and 18k white gold cases. What was different on the dial? Well everyone seemed to love the watch but really didn't like the "10Hz" text on the dial being printed in red. So Breguet redesigned it to be in a gray color that blends in with the guilloche engraved dial. Better now? I honestly didn't mind it being in red because I thought the label helped define the watch as a unique mixture of the past and present. Is it more elegant with the gray text? Yes. Problem solved everyone?
The watch case itself is thankfully on the larger side being 43mm wide, again in 18k rose gold. That is the only material offered for now, but I suspect additional metals will be available in the future. The case is also rather thin, so it looks great on the wrist and sits comfortably. The thin bezel helps the watch look even larger, which helps show off the simple and attractive dial.
