Patek Philippe replica , Vacheron Constantin replica and Lange modern dual-chronograph

In general, we can fake watches uk the modern dual-chronograph is divided into two categories, one use the control movement, and the other using the independent movement.

5260
ETA 7750 double chronograph movement

Modern dual-chasing time

In the first category, the most popular (and reasonable price) of the modern dual-chronograph movement was undoubtedly the ETA (Valjoux) 7750. This movement by the Richard Habring design, the Basel International Watch and Jewelery Fair in 1992 with the IWC replica Doppelchronograph chronograph chronograph first introduced.

Richard Habring

Before 1992, double chronograph mechanism must rely on two column wheel to operate, this design is expensive, complex adjustment. For example, if the chronograph second hand button is not fully pushed in, the brake levers around the center gear may open or close too early, causing the stanchion to become stuck. Richard Habring’s solution is simple and effective, as he explains, “like a hamburger, first remove the top slice, then add a piece of cheese, and then re-folder.” Richard Habring design does not rely on the column wheel, As the basis, through the lever and cam system operation, easy to adjust and service, production costs are lower. Compared with the antique watches, equipped with 7750 movement watch double-pin mechanism, can be located at 10 o’clock position of the additional buttons to operate.

Subsequently, the Portuguese Chronograph, iconic Da Vinci, as well as the recent Titanium engineer Doppelchronograph have equipped with the same movement. Not to mention the Il Destriero Scafusia – still one of the most complex and produced watches in the series.

5270
Caliber CHR 27-525 PS Movement

At a more basic level, the watch most of the application of precious metal material, which is functional design of the movement contrary to the original intention. Unlike other sophisticated features, such as moon phases and calendars, chronograph timing means active participation and on-demand use. In many high-level complex functions, in terms of positive interaction, only the three-chronometer can be compared with the double-chasing timing. Many antique chronographs are designed for functional purposes – horse racing, racing, or aerospace – meaning that the watchmaker wears and uses them on the track or helicopter, with the risk of dust, dirt and damage , So antique double chronograph chronograph mostly use of stainless steel, rather than the soft texture of precious metals.

5271

To some extent, if you have to choose a modern chasing chronograph, many people will prefer IWC IWC Doppelchronograph and Harbring Doppel 2.0 / 3.0, not simply because these watch design concept more fit The original intention, but also because of their positioning is more likely to achieve the desired value.

Patek Philippe 5270 fake Perpetual Calendar

Patek Philippe fake has been associated with perpetual calendar chronographs for several decades now. Not only was replica patek philippe aquanaut replica watches grand complications the first to unite both complications in a wristwatch (with the ref. 1518), but the brand even added, in some references, a split-seconds function or a minute repeater to this already prestigious package. At the 2014 Baselworld replica patek philippe nautilus fair, Patek introduced a new color to its “entry-level” perpetual calendar chronograph, a white gold case with a blue dial.
The movement is not the only interesting element here, and turning the patek philippe replica vs real watch to the dial side also shows complications. The perpetual calendar components are not visible through the sapphire caseback, as they are positioned on the top of the movement. However, the dial provides lots of information, with a clever and legible display. The day and month are indicated in two windows at 12 o’clock. The date and the moon-phase indicator are displayed in a third sub-dial at 6 o’clock. What is new compared to the previous reference (Ref. 5970) is the way it indicates the leap year and the day/night function. Previously, these two were positioned inside the chronograph’s counters at 3 and 9 o’clock and used hands to point out the information. Not the most practical and legible layout, as it was easy to get confused between the different hands. In the 5270, patek philippe replica uk has chosen to use two small apertures – at 4:30 for the leap year and at 7:30 for the day/night indicator. The dial gains increased legibility and aesthetic purity from that aesthetic decision.
Another change (like we said, every aspect has been changed or improved) is in the case, which has a diameter of 41 mm instead of 39 mm. It is slightly bigger, but remains in the classical and reasonable category (consider the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Chronograph, which is 42 mm, and the A. Lange & Sohne Datograph Up/Down, which is 41 mm). It is made of 18k white gold and comes with an interesting, typically patek philippe replica swiss movement shape – convex bezel, complicated lugs, and rectangular chronograph pushers. The case remains quite thin at 12.4 mm, and positions itself really well on the wrist. The overall appearance of the fake patek philippe geneve 5270 is refined, complicated and elegant. The minor changes to the design give us a cleaner and more modern replica patek philippe calatrava watch.
The last of the changes, and also new for 2014, is that blue color combination (both for the dial and the strap). Originally available in white gold with a white/silver dial, it is now possible to have the 5270 in blue, a less classical color and perhaps, therefore, easier to wear with a casual outfit as well. Even if blue is a cold color (especially when paired with a white-gold case), this new edition is, nonetheless, more appealing. The dial is not plain but slightly guillochéd, with a sunburst pattern, and thus gives off really nice reflections (that were unfortunately hard to capture during our photo shoot). The contrast with the white gold hands and applied indexes and the white inscriptions is excellent and allows for very good legibility. Furthermore, the blue remains serious enough for Patek’s lovers but adds an extra attractiveness to a very classical reference.

Patek Philippe fake Nautilus Ref. 5711/1P

Patek Philippe fake Nautilus Ref. 5711/1P

5013

In 2016, Patek Philippe fake is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its now iconic Nautilus collection. To mark the occasion, today Patek has unveiled not one but two limited-edition Nautilus 40th Anniversary models: a Nautilus 5711/1P limited to 700 pieces (retail price of $113,400), and a Nautilus Chronograph 5976/1G limited to 1300 pieces (price $96,390). We will focus now on the 5711/1P. But first a quick recap. A look back to 1976 not only shows how quickly and dramatically the world has changed since then but also illustrates how well the Nautilus has stayed its course across four decades in terms of design, dependability, and popularity. From the Nautilus 3700/1A to today:

The Nautilus replica Ref. 5711/1P 40th Anniversary is magnificent in many ways. It has a platinum case, an exclusive choice of metal for Patek often used for special editions such as this. It is also interesting as the original Nautilus of 1976 was of course a stainless steel model. The new 5711/1P is is obviously reminiscent of the original Nautilus Ref. 3700/1A, but also suggests the subtle evolution of the model line during the past 40 years. With a width of 44 mm (including the crown 40mm from 10 o’clock to 4 o’clock), the new Ref. 5711 is a rather large watch. But 40 years ago, this also applied to the Ref. 3700/1A, which – although 2 mm narrower – was so large in its time that it was nicknamed “Jumbo”. 2 millimeters, as little as it may seem, makes a big difference on the wrist, and is thus an important acknowledgement by Patek Philippe’s replica watch creation department that proportions have changed (a little ;-)) in the past decades.
