Two tennis legends Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer

The two tennis legends, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, were yesterday photographed together for the 100th anniversary of Wimbledon:

The Serb wore a Hublot Big Bang MECA-10 ‘Ceramic Blue’, featuring a case with a width of 45 mm and a skeletonized matte blue dial on a blue rubber strap.

The Swiss wore a very rare and not on the catalog 40 mm Rolex Daytona ‘Jack-O-Lantern’ in 18k yellow gold, featuring a black dial with three black sundials, surrounded by a bezel with 32 baguette-cut orange sapphires. The hour markers have been set with 11 baguette-cut orange sapphires.

Hublot Big Bang MECA-10 Review:

The newest invention from Hublot Big Bang MECA-10 ‘Ceramic Blue’combines state-of-the-art materials with sound engineering. It’s clear that the modern timepiece, which has an attractive blue ceramic casing, aims to grab attention. Nevertheless, the watch is not only for display; it also has a reliable mechanism. It lives up to its appearance.

The 45mm case serves more purposes than merely being decorative. The piece’s blue ceramic casing, bezel, and folding clasp are all present. This is created using extreme temperature sintered and zirconium dioxide. Remarkably, the substance is significantly lighter than steel despite being more rigid and solid. Additionally, it is far more scratch-resistant, preserving the brilliance of the watch casing.

Hublot’s HUB1201 is the power source for the latest Big Bang Meca-10 Blue Ceramic. The movement is a mechanically wound skeletal caliber that took two years to build. It has a remarkable power reserve of about 10 days, also shown on a cogwheel-based power reserve meter.

The markers that go along with the modern skeleton dial architecture are very intriguing. A gearwheel placed at 6 o’clock shows the precise duration left and the regulatory mechanism. Likewise, a red dot at 3 o’clock warns whenever the movement is getting close to the end of the power reserve. It emerges at 7 o’clock and is connected to the little second oscillator.

Generally, the Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Blue Ceramic might be worth a second look if you’re seeking a modern and interesting watch. It is not only a beautiful wristwatch but also one with a smart design and practical functionality.

Rolex Daytona ‘Jack-O-Lantern’ Review:

On the other hand, the latest Daytona is reminiscent of the infamous Daytona that was introduced in 2004. This was when the Rolex architects had a somewhat hedonistic stretch, as it shares the similar orange sapphire bezel.

The newest Daytona has a bezel studded in 36 baguette-cut orange sapphires. This is the typical quantity for contemporary Daytona bezels adorned with baguettes. It also has a white mother of pearl display featuring 8 brilliant-cut diamond hour markings.

As with the “leopard,” the orange sapphires’ clarity varies between different timepieces. However, this particular watch is a deep, vibrant orange. The bezel also overpowers the mother of pearl dial, which is presumably the intention. It is white, shiny, and subdued.

On paper, mother of pearl with orange sapphires seems like an odd blend, but when set in metal, the result is a striking jewelry piece. It is flashy, yet like any contemporary Rolex, it appears flawlessly constructed and is beautifully built up close. Surprisingly nice is the set for the flawless gemstone.
