1707 - The path to Independence

As a result of the 1707 Paris peace treaty, the United Provinces, as previously established as the Dutch Republic are dissolved. The provinces of Friesland, Gronigen, Drenthe, and the overlordship of Overijssel are independent Dutch provinces and may make such treaties and arrangements as they individually or collectively decide upon. The provinces of Holland and Zeeland, and the Bishopric of Utrecht are null and void, with the lands therein to be subdivided into new provinces, along with the lands of the region formerly known as the Spanish Netherlands, from the channel coast to the Rhine.

The Kingdom of Hainaut is born.

Long live Leopold I!

At the same time, the Seiko 5 sub-brand has sat mostly unchanged for years. The Seiko 5 Sports series, then, represents an opportunity replica watches to kill two birds with one stone: These new models breathe new life into the nearly dormant line, while at the same time replica watches uk offering the brand’s loyal fans a new affordable sporty timepiece to meet their demands. That said, the resemblance fake rolex to the SKX007 and SKX009 divers is more than coincidental. The Seiko 5 Sports series is a replacement for these discontinued fan favorite models, but fake Rolex these new pieces offer lower specifications (100 meters versus 200 meters of water resistance and no replica rolex screw-down crowns) than the outgoing models. That said, these style-forward new takes on the design sit fake watches at a comparable price point to the current entry-level SRPC39 Prospex diver, and even at their most rolex replica conservative are a punchier, more vibrant, punk rock take on the Seiko diver formula.
