The chimes are then intensified by an ultra-light JMC Lutherie resonance tray – a soundboard made of resonating spruce wood and Nomex/Kevlar honeycomb.

Limited Edition Promesse

Oscar winner Christoph Waltz presents first Filmmaker award at IWC replica gala event

Oscar winner Christoph Waltz presented the first-ever Filmmaker Award last night. From the four nominated films, the jury picked two winners: “Und morgen seid ihr tot” (“Tomorrow You’ll Be Dead”) and “Europe, She Loves”. The presentation took place at the IWC gala dinner held as part of the 11th Zurich Film Festival, to which the Swiss luxury replica watches manufacturer had invited some 200 VIP guests from the worlds of film, media, art, politics and commerce. The award, worth CHF 100,000 in sponsorship, was set up by the Association for the Promotion of Film in Switzerland, which was co-founded by IWC CEO Georges Kern.

Christoph Waltz shot to fame with roles in “Inglourious Basterds” and “Django Unchained” by the Breitling replica watches American cult director Quentin Tarantino. The two-time Academy Award winner was in Zurich last night to present the first-ever Filmmaker Award during the IWC gala dinner, which celebrated the theme “For the Love of Cinema”. The sponsorship award set up by the Association for the Promotion of Film in Switzerland (Verein zur Filmförderung in der Schweiz) is worth CHF 100,000 and is intended to give specifically designed support to promising film projects which are in the production or post-production stages. “I am proud to be here in person to present this award, which is very important for the Swiss film industry. Providing sponsorship for filmmakers is a necessary and relevant task, one which makes a significant contribution to the diversity of Swiss film,” said Waltz.

RECOGNITION FOR TWO SWISS FILM PROJECTS

Two winners were picked from the four nominees. The main prize of CHF 75,000 went to producers Bernhard Burgener and Norbert Preuss and to director Michael Steiner for their project “Und morgen seid ihr tot”. The film tells the true story of two Swiss citizens, Daniela Widmer and David Och, who were kidnapped by the Taliban in Pakistan in July 2011 and succeeded in making a spectacular escape after eight months spent in captivity. Shooting is planned to start in February 2016. The film will be directed by Michael Steiner, known for his works “Mein Name ist Eugen” and “Grounding”. In addition, a prize of CHF 25,000 was awarded to producer Lisa Blatter from 2:1 Films for her project “Europe, She Loves”. The film, which is directed by Jan Gassmann and is now in postproduction, portrays five couples forced to draw deep on their reserves of wit and love as they struggle for everyday survival in a Europe shaken by the economic crisis. “The scripts of both these films stood out for their compelling storytelling and the exceptional sensitivity with which these two very different stories were told. Hopefully we’ll be able to see both of them on the big screen soon,” said IWC CEO Georges Kern.

AWARDS CEREMONY AT EXCLUSIVE IWC GALA DINNER

The presentation of the first-ever Filmmaker Award by the Association for the Promotion of Film in Switzerland was held as part of the IWC gala dinner at the 11th Zurich Film Festival. The two winning projects were also each presented with an IWC replica watches – the Portugieser Automatic in stainless steel with a black dial and a special rotor engravingwith “1st Filmmaker Award Zurich 2015” (Ref. IW500703). The Schaffhausen luxury watch manufacturer had invited over 200 VIP guests from the worlds of film, media, art, politics and commerce to the exclusive event, which was held in line with the motto “For the Love of Cinema” at the Park Hyatt Zurich. Actor Christoph Waltz and director Marc Forster preceded the event with an appearance on the red carpet. After the dinner and the awards ceremony, which was accompanied by the music of the well-known Swiss blues musician Philipp Fankhauser, guests continued the party into the small hours of the morning.

MILESTONE FOR THE SWISS FILM INDUSTRY

For director Marc Forster, who was also a member of the jury, the Filmmaker Award represents a real milestone for the domestic film industry. “By specifically backing projects in the pre- or post-production stages, we are making an important contribution to the promotion and funding of films,” he explained. The award was set up by the Association for the Promotion of Film in Switzerland, a nonprofit organization founded last December by Marc Forster, IWC CEO Georges Kern, the co-directors of the Zurich Film Festival Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri, and the CEO of Ringier, Marc Walder. Invitations to the public to submit entries for the first Filmmaker Award were published in March 2015. Marc Forster, Georges Kern and Karl Spoerrichose four finalists from the many projects submitted. The other two nominated finalists along with “Und morgen seid ihr tot” and “Europe, She Loves” were the Swiss films “Goliath” and “Waffenläufer” (“The Gun Runner”).

FIRMLY COMMITTED TO THE ART OF FILMMAKING

IWC Schaffhausen took on responsibilities as a co-partner of the Zurich Film Festival for the second time. “The partnership with this dynamic festival, which is increasingly establishing itself as an important meeting point for the film industry, is the perfect affirmation of our passion for film and the cinema,” acknowledged Georges Kern. The Swiss luxury Omega replica watches manufacturer had also set the stage for a very special highlight during the festival: under the heading “IWC Schaffhausen Talks To”, selected guests of the Zurich Summit had a chance to listen to in-depth conversations with two world stars of cinema, Marc Forster and ChristophWaltz. “In IWC Schaffhausen, we are fortunate to have found a partner that supports the world of film with a real passion and commitment. The collaboration is a massive asset to our festival – not least because IWC always manages to bring top-level stars to Zurich,” stressed Karl Spoerri.

Replica Richard Mille RM27-02 Prototype Online

Owning a replica Richard Mille timepiece would be pretty amazing.  But having the exact watch worn by tennis star Rafael Nadal  throughout the U.S. Open and the rest of the 2015 season would be almost unreal. Yet,that’s exactly what can happen when the RM27-02 Tourbillon goes up for sale in November at the 6th edition of this year’s Only Watch auction. While Nadal didn’t make it to the finals of the US Open, he is still a top-ranked player and the RM 27-02 Tourbillon is a prized possession.

As is the case with Richard Mille, the brand is always looking to test the boundaries in technical watchmaking, and with this Breitling replica watches uk the envelope has certainly been pushed even further. The case design of this piece is particularly unique as it is composed out of hundreds of layers of quartz filaments layered on top of each other giving it a title of TPT® quartz.

Additionally for the first time, Mille has created a skeletonized baseplate, called a “unibody” (with movement visible from the dial side) that fuses the case middle and baseplate — eliminating the need to join the casebook and front in typical fake IWC watchmaking style.  Machined from NTPT carbon, the unusual construction — that offers a visual dimension — serves a critical purpose: increasing rigidity and shock resistance.

Perhaps with the engineering feat accomplished within the micro-machined case work, it’s easy to overlook the fact that the Patek Philippe replica watches sale contains a skeletonized manual winding tourbillon caliber. Not only is this a highly evolved lightweight timepiece, but also it is extremely robust and able to withstand up to 5,000 G’s of force. The integrated, beveled, shot blasted and satin-brushed grade-5 titanium bridges display further creative style with its three-dimensional design and functional purpose of bringing together the titanium and carbon elements. The rotating barrel within the movement generates enough power to run the watch an upwards of 70 hours delivering consistent timekeeping all the while.

The RM27-02 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal is one of the more notable timepieces in the Richard Mille collection as it marks another step in the brand’s evolution towards technical advancement. While there are 50  RM27-02 timepieces made, the one being auctioned is the first-made prototype — actually worn by Nadal and, because the Only Watch auction timepieces must be unique (as if Nadal wearing it isn’t unique enough), the winning bidder of the cheap Omega replica watches will also recieve the outfit that Nadal wore during the U.S. Open– signed by him. Proceeds from Only Watch are donated to research against Duchenne muscular dystrophy. We will bring you more news on the timepieces in the November 7 Only Watch auction next month.

Luxury Replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Watches, in love with film

The 72nd Venice International Film Festival, and the presentation of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker award to Brian de Palma, is the chance to look back at the longstanding ties between the replica Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaker and the silver screen.

Jaeger-LeCoultre replica watches

The battle for product placement has seen watchmakers jostling for screen space, always ready for their close-up, Mr DeMille. The natural consequence of this big-screen invasion has been brands’ eagerness to welcome high-profile actors into their fold as a means of occupying media terrain. Daniel Craig aka James Bond took a tour of the Omega workshops this summer, where he saw the watch he wears in the latest 007 adventure, released this autumn, being assembled. When at end 2014 IWC launched a new line of women’s models in its Portofino collection, it called on Peter Lindbergh to deliver a slick staging of its products worn by Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt, Zhou Xun, Ewan McGregor and Christoph Waltz, against the backdrop of the picturesque Italian fishing village. A dedicated follower of Panerai – which incidentally kitted out the entire Expendables 2 crew with a Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo 47 mm – Sylvester Stallone was nonetheless unable to resist a fling with year, Hugh “Wolverine” Jackman became the global face of Montblanc replica watches uk, which he currently sports in a major airport advertising campaign.

The Chaplins’ legacy

As these and the many other possible examples show,best TAG Heuer replica watchmakers and film stars are more than just good friends. But for Jaeger-LeCoultre, the relationship runs deeper still as Chief Executive Daniel Riedo observes: “Haute Horlogerie and cinema share common values: both create dreams and a sense of wonder through aesthetic and technical mastery. Jaeger-LeCoultre draws upon the talent of its many Artisans to create exceptional watch objects, just as it takes talented writers, directors, actors and technicians to produce a work of filmmaking art. It is all about two worlds infused with creative ingenuity.” Yes, actors such as Diane Kruger, Clive Owen, Sarah Gadon or Zao Wei do play a leading role in the brand’s history, but the crux of the message lies in the intimacy the brand seeks to develop with this world of imagination.

This now protean bond has grown from the day in 1953 when the Canton of Vaud welcomed Sir Charles Chaplin to Switzerland, and the shores of Lake Geneva, with the gift of a Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox which has been passed down through the family. “La Grande Maison” now honours this legacy through Carmen Chaplin, the British actor, filmmaker and Sir Charles’ granddaughter, who can be seen in its latest IWC replica watches promotional campaign, Open A Whole New World. She also went behind the camera to direct A Time For Everything, a reflection on time that opens with the treasured Memovox. Charlie Chaplin is celebrated at another prestigious event to which Jaeger-LeCoultre is the official partner, namely the annual Chaplin Award Gala which is hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York. The actor came out of exile and travelled to the United States to collect his award when he was the first person to be honoured, in 1972. This year’s winner is Robert Redford. The Film Society and Jaeger-LeCoultre are also partners to the Film Society’s Filmmaker in Residence programme, which provides space and time to develop new work within the New York film community. This year’s awardee is Athina Rachel Tsangari whose feature, Chevalier, premiered at the Locarno International Film Festival in August.

Across the continents

Festivals are a prominent aspect of the brand’s commitment to film, as the partner to events in New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Sebastián and Shanghai, where it also hosts a gala evening and charity auction to help finance film production in China, and funds the restoration of classic Chinese films.

Among these many associations, perhaps one of the most prestigious is with the Venice Mostra whose 72nd edition runs September 2nd to 12th. It sees Brian de Palma receive the Glory to the Filmmaker award, jointly presented by Jaeger-LeCoultre and the Venice International Film Festival. Prior to de Palma, James Franco, Spike Lee, Al Pacino, Mani Ratnam and Sylvester Stallone have each been distinguished for their contribution to the development of contemporary film. The fake Omega watchmaker has also fallen for the legendary city itself and has become a patron to the restoration of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, home to works by Tintoretto. Returning to cinema, unlike Charlie Chaplin who would claim that “my only enemy is time”, Jaeger-LeCoultre has made time its greatest ally.
