A couple of weeks ago, WorldTempus presented The Pearl of Wonders, the first of the three pieces in the Chamber of Wonders collection. We present today the second model which features an old Chinese map: The Terrestrial Map.

Constrained within a circle, the old Chinese map is inspired by the work of Italian Jesuit, Matteo Ricci. A theologian, philosopher, mathematician, cosmologist and astronomer, this priest took part in his congregation’s missions in Asia. Landing in Macao in 1582, he spent the rest of his life in China, sharing his knowledge with scholars and officials. Under the Ming dynasty, he translated the state of global geographical knowledge for his hosts by repositioning China as the starting point.

This globe already mapped out the five continents. Admittedly, Libya summed up Africa and the Austral Earth assumed the presence of Australia. Nevertheless, the four oceans were featured, the Nile River is the largest river in the world, the Earth is round, variations in length of day and night are listed and explained, and the distances between the Earth and some planets are also listed there in chart form.

The dial of The Terrestrial Map is made of white jade, with translucent veins giving the perception of depth. For each dial, from a block of this stone a thin sculpted disk needs to be extracted which, after manual polishing, reaches its ideal thickness of 0.70 mm. This is followed by 17 hours of meticulous craftsmanship of an experienced miniature painter, using natural India ink mixed with a special binder. Little by little, right down to the accuracy of the gray shades and to the tiny coastal and territorial curves, the famous globe and its historical reliefs emerge.

Seiko Marinemaster Professional 1000m Diver’s

— Prospex Marinemaster collection celebrates 50 years of Seiko’s diver’s replica watches excellence.

Seiko, Marinemaster Professional 1000m Diver’s

It was in 1965 that Seiko made its first ever diver’s Breitling replica watches. From the first use of a titanium case for a diver’s watch to the invention of the accordion-style strap and the twolayer case to the design of dial markers and hands of unparalleled legibility, Seiko has been a pioneer in the field. In 2015, the brand welcomes two new timepieces in the Marinemaster series. Today, we are introducing the Marinemaster Professional 1000m Diver’s.

Like its 1975 predecessor, the new Marinemaster Professional 1000m Diver’s has the two-layer case construction that is now the trademark of Seiko’s professional diver’s watches. Thanks to the strength of the inner case structure, the specially designed L-shaped gasket and the screw-down glass fixing ring, the replica Breitling watches is effectively impermeable to helium and can be safely used for saturation diving to great depths. The use of ceramic for the outer shell enhances shock resistance and also prevents any unintentional rotation of the bezel. In September 2014, Seiko professional diver’s watches of the same case construction were subjected to the most extreme test imaginable. Affixed to the exterior hull of KAIKO 7000 II, a remotely operated undersea research vehicle, they performed perfectly down to a depth of 3,000m.

This new creation incorporates a mechanical caliber specially adjusted for a diver’s  watch. The movement is caliber 8L35, and it is made and assembled, as is the complete watch, by Seiko’s leading craftsmen at the Shizuku-ishi replica watches Studio. The hands and markers are coated with a new version of Seiko’s Lumibrite, which glows for 60% longer than in the past. The strap is made of extra-strength silicone for greater durability.
