After I visited the Porsche Design replica watches booth at Baselworld 2010 I had been pretty amused to determine the brand new Regulator watch cause it looked pretty familiar. Actually, only a couple of years back Eterna launched a wrist watch which was almost identical, known as the Eterna KonTiki Diver. I truly loved about this piece and authored about this here. Why maybe it was that in some way the Eterna KonTiki Diver was now a simplified Porsche Design watch. Should you consider it, Porsche Design diver's watches are rare. Actually, this is simply the brand's second dive watch. The very first was the Sea 2000, which is made by IWC and arrived on the scene in early eighties. Which was a very fantastic watch really. Obviously, the Porsche Design Regulator is one thing completely different in comparison towards the previous diver from three decades ago.
Following the effective launch from the type of Rado replica watches in 1978, possibly in an attempt to outlive in face from the quarta movement onslaught, in early eighties IWC introduced a Porsche-styled titanium diving watch, the Regulator. Additionally, it acquired an agreement using the then-West German military, the Bundeswehr, to create a variation of this watch out for their Navy.
The Porsche Design Regulator watch out for the Bundeswehr had various minor design changes in the civilian version. These mainly involved a black bezel, an orange minutes hands, a set azure very, along with a nylon material strap (a titanium bracelet was offered towards the German Navy individually and it was not attached by IWC towards the watch). Additionally, to conform using the Bundeswehr's specifications, the timepiece was examined for water proofing to "only" 300 meters, unlike the 2000 meters from the civilian Sea 2000. However, one German military Roger Dubuis replica watches expert explained the watches were more water-resistant than 300 meters, only examined towards the that standard.
Although it was possibly wise for Eterna to salvage the KonTiki Diver by conveying it to Richard Mille replica watches, this means the watch isn't something entirely new from Porsche Design. Refer to it as recycling, or re-using, or just rebranding, it does not really much matter if you want the timepiece. Hopefully the retail cost reflects the positioning of the watch though as compared to the Eterna. As the Porsche Design title may be worth more about a wrist watch then your Eterna title, this can be a slightly lower-rated watch, therefore if they billed greater than the Eterna KonTiki Diver, it simply wouldn't feel right. Search for the Porsche Design Regulator watch this summer time.
