The square-cased Franck Muller Replica marked its 10th Anniversary in 2015 with a faithful reissue from 2005. There were only 500 copies made.

The achingly thin, brushed-steel hours are my favourite feature. They travel all the way from the inner dial to the step. The Bellytanker's case is a lot thinner than many modern sports watches, and especially those that use Valjoux 7750 movement. The case lugs are also thin and refined. And the bezel is made of an alloy with vintage-style typography. The domed sapphire glass gives the vintage look of acrylic, but without compromising on scratch resistance. The screw-pushers, as well as the screw-down crown, are practical and elegant touches.

Rosillo and Belamich, along with myself, began to discuss what it would have been like if the watches were still around in the 1950s, during the peak of the belly tank race scene. We found one that was still in good condition, possibly worn by Bill Burke in racing and passed on from generation to generation, the watch worn as a California Hot-rod Legend. We wondered what that watch would look like.franck muller replica The dial had turned a deep, rich tropical brown from black, similar to the leaves of the cigars we all loved, thanks to the UV light and heat from the race car driver. What would the dial of this watch look like, which is essentially the prequel to the sequel?

Rosillo, Belamich, and I started to talk about the current fascination of patina. Perhaps we are afraid of being connected to human battery towers like in the Matrix in the future. In an era where technology is a part of every aspect of our lives and we live our relationships and experiences in a virtual world as well as the real one, there seems to be no time in history when people were more fascinated by the past. Patina is what has us more enchanted than ever.

The first thing that a car enthusiast would do to his 356 Speedster a few decades ago was a frame off restoration. They would rebuild the engine, particle blast the chassis,Patek Philippe Aquanaut Replica Watches and then repaint them in a glossy finish. The same thing happened with our watches. Movements were torn apart and rebuilt. Cases were magna-fluxed, then polished. Lug chamfers would be re-engineered and dials cleaned.

Over the last decade, this has all changed. We now love "barn finds," cars with cracked seats and bodywork that reveals a swirling ombre of age spots. In the world of vintage watches, nothing is more sought after than the "tropical dial". Dials which started out as black, but due to UV exposure and being stored in dark places, they changed from dark chocolate (as seen on Sea-Dwellers Mk2 thin case or Speedmasters 145.022-69) to lighter amber.
