Jaquet Droz Replica Lady 8 Flower-An expression of refined femininity

Jaquet Droz_Replica__lady_8_flowerAn expression of refined femininity enhanced by the astounding automaton and the virtuosity of the Jaquet Droz Replica Ateliers d’Art.

A timepiece imbued with the spirit of the jeweler’s craft, minimalist and richly ornate by turns, the Lady 8 and its distinctive undulating silhouette have made their mark as touchstones of femininity, elegance and cheap replica watchmaking refinement. In the workshops at La Chaux-de-Fonds, the desire to create the most extraordinary timepieces sets the bar high, but this year the brand known by its twin stars has reached a pinnacle of achievement: it has bestowed the Lady 8 with a breathtaking mechanical animation in the form of a blossoming lotus flower.

lady_8_flowerThe Lady 8 Flower, a fusion of all the arts and crafts practiced by Jaquet Droz, is made up of two superimposed circles creating a figure of eight, an emblematic number for the brand and a symbol of harmony, perfection and infinity. The lower circle features a delicate butterfly, its wings outspread. Two versions are available: one with the butterfly’s wings painted and engraved in translucent red enamel on a guilloché background; the other, incorporating jewels, features a butterfly set with blue sapphires and portrayed against snow-set diamonds. The upper circle reveals a lotus flower under a sapphire crystal dome. Representing serenity and poetry, and sacred to many Asian cultures, the flower has been crafted with the utmost care. Each petal is individually enameled or engraved to give its back a perfect satin finish.

lady_8_flower_ateliersAs a mysterious bud or fully opened jewel-like bloom, this animation is not simply a pure vision of naturalistic and poetic beauty. By pressing a push-button the lotus flower opens, revealing its diamond heart. For Jaquet Droz, the timepiece also presented a new technical challenge: accommodating the two mechanisms, the Jaquet Droz replica watch‘s and the automaton’s – within a 35 mm diameter case, while ensuring one never interferes with the other. The case was fashioned with particularly meticulous workmanship, especially when setting the brilliant or baguette-cut diamonds adorning each piece.

Replica_Jaquet Droz_lady_8_flower_1The Replica Jaquet Droz Lady 8 Flower comes in two limited edition versions, comprising 28 pieces for the red gold model and just eight pieces for the white gold model. In both, Jaquet Droz shares a taste for secrets with its clients – the secret of its peerless expertise ever preserved and adapted to the times, and that of a delicate flower that will burst into bloom at any moment.

Piaget replica took part in the 6th Only Replica Watches auction

The Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Piaget has reiterated its support for a noble cause by taking part for the sixth consecutive time in the Only Replica Watches charity auction held on November 7th 2015 at La Réserve Genève Hotel and Spa.

Only Replica Watch is a charity auction organised every two years since 2005. Its results are donated to the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy to fund research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a degenerative neuromuscular disease affecting children, adolescents or young adults.

Piaget participated in this latest edition by interpreting its emblematic Altiplano 900P in a version that is unique as it is original, fitted for the very first time with metallic red hands. Neither entirely a movement nor exactly a case – or rather both at once: the Altiplano 38 mm 900P is the world’s thinnest mechanical watch. Merging the hand-wound calibre with the case elements, it is designed as a single entity in order to achieve record-breaking slenderness at just 3.65 mm thin. A crowning achievement in over half a century of virtuoso skills displayed in the realm of ultra-thin watchmaking where Piaget reigns supreme, it conveys the excellence of the two integrated Manufactures run by the Maison. Places where the skills of the replica Piaget watchmakers, case constructors and designers converge in giving life to this masterpiece of reliability and precision. Piaget replica watches

Since every technical choice had an aesthetic impact, and vice versa, each of the 145 parts composing the Altiplano 38 mm 900P has been trimmed to a size sometimes barely thicker than a hair’s breadth – including some wheels measuring a mere 0.12 mm thin (compared with 0.20 mm on a classic movement)

To underscore the distinctive nature of this creation, the rim of its case-back is engraved with the inscription “Replica Only Watches 2015 – unique piece”.

The Piaget Altiplano 900P “Only Replica Watches 2015 – unique piece” was sold for CHF 70,000.-

Commenting on this participation, CEO Philippe Léopold-Metzger explained: “The Altiplano 900P powerfully expresses the creativity and innovation that have defined Piaget since 1874. We have created a Breitling replica watch that is truly unique in terms of aesthetics and design, for which we have once again pushed our own limits. It vividly illustrates the Piaget philosophy of placing techniques in the service of design. I am delighted that we have created a one-of-a-kind version of this model for Only Watch and to support the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy.”

44 one-of-a-kind fake watches went under the hammer of Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo for a total sum of CHF 11,268,000 – thereby making this edition the best auction ever held on behalf of the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy.

Four Replica Watches UK for Copy Watches Collector

In the fourth and final of our baselworld reports, we take a look at four replica watches that might – just might – one day become collector’s pieces.

Watch replica design – how hard can it be? All you need is three hands, a dial and a case, and you’re away, right? Over time, it’s been proved time and again that designing a truly great replica watches uk is extraordinarily difficult. A dial placed slightly off, or a lug shaped a bit oddly can kill a watch in the same time it takes us to look at it – in other words, an instant. So what makes a classic, an icon even? In our final report from Baselworld 2015, Watches of Switzerland’s team of watch experts pick four replica watches that might one day qualify.

Omega Replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon – Vintage Black

Omega Replica Speedmaster Dark SideInspired by the discoveries of NASA astronauts, Omega unveiled its Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon in 2013. There has been a Grey Side and a White Side but this year, the luxury Swiss brand has expanded the collection even further, bringing out a further four Dark Side models. These are: Black Black, Sedna Black, Pitch Black and Vintage Black – all powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Calibre 9300.

The Vintage Black stands out from its stealth-like siblings with brown indexes and hands, which complement the ‘vintage’ Super-LumiNova and a brown leather strap. But, just like the original model, all versions have a matt ceramic dial that has been created using laser technology. In fact, the case starts out as one piece of ceramic, which is heated to 1,400C to shrink it to 44.25mm. It is then machined using diamond tools and the details, such as the tachymeter scale on the bezel, are lasered on.

‘The Omega Replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon is one of the most in-demand watches Omega has made in a generation and will go down as one of the best in the brand’s history,’ says David Lindsay, Watches of Switzerland’s Retail Director of Luxury Brands. ‘It’s full of Omega’s state-of-the-art technical developments, but what makes it so sought-after is that it’s beautifully designed and proportioned, and, to put it simply, cool.’

Breitling Replica Transocean Chronograph 1915

Breitling Replica Transocean Chronograph 1915You can tell a lot about a watch from a picture and a press release, but not what it’s like to slip it onto your wrist. Having admired Breitling’s Transocean Chronograph 1915 on paper before the fair, we fell for it hook, line and sinker in the flesh.

The story behind it’s genuinely interesting and had a significant impact on watch design. Breitling was the first watch company to make a wrist Breitling replica watches with an independent chronograph pushpiece, an innovation this watch recalls 100 years later. That pushpiece sits at 2 o’clock where it can be easily operated by an index finger, and it starts, stops and resets the chronograph.

The vintage design details are convincing, particularly the classic Breitling signature on the dial, and at 43mm and cast in stainless steel, this is a modern, masculine watch, with a little 1950s flair in its Milanese bracelet.

‘The Breitling Replica Transocean watches has played a really important role in opening up Breitling to a more style-conscious audience,’ says Robin Swithinbank, editor of Watches of Switzerland’s official magazine Calibre. ‘This model is special because it’s also a heritage piece that underlines the watchmaking equity you get when you invest in a Breitling. And because it’s limited to 1,915 pieces, you can be sure demand will outstrip supply.’

Replica Hublot Classic Aerofusion Moonphase

Hublot Replica Classic Aerofusion MoonphaseBetter known for contemporary and tool-like watches, Hublot surprised this year with the Hublot Classic Aerofusion Moonphase – a watch that will be remembered because it’s the brand’s first ever moonphase.

It’s available in titanium or Hublot’s King Gold (18-carat red gold with a small amount of platinum), boasts a 45mm case and comes on black rubber and alligator straps. The hardy porthole-like bezel (also in King Gold or titanium) features Hublot’s trademade H-shaped screws, which might look cosmetic, but actually keep the case components together. A skeleton dial shows the working of the movement beneath but leaves room for a calendar and a generous moonphase display.

Hublot replica uk always provides something a bit different – even in their take on a classic complication,’ says Faye Soteri, Watches of Switzerland’s Specialist Watch Buyer. ‘Rather than the traditional detailed skyscape, it has included two typographically accurate moons that disappear behind a piece of frosted sapphire – it’s stunning.’

Replica Bell & Ross BR01 10th Anniversary

Bell & Ross Replica BR01This year marks the 10th anniversary of Bell & Ross’s legendary square-cased BR01 – the first Bell & Ross replica watches to fully realise the brand’s mission of turning an aircraft cockpit clock into a wristwatch. To celebrate, it has unveiled the BR01 10th Anniversary, limited to 500 pieces.

Bell & Ross has developed more than 150 versions of the BR01 and a further 50 limited editions. Although this 46mm anniversary version may look the same as the original, it’s made of Bell & Ross’s high-tech ceramic. Otherwise, the design remains the same: the black and white colour scheme, the numerals (inspired by analogue aviation counters) and the distinctive shape of the hands.

‘Ten years on it’s quite easy to forget the impact this Breitling replica watches sale had on the watch industry when it was released,’ says Mark Toulson, Watches of Switzerland’s Head of Watch Buying. ‘It showed it was possible to create a timepiece that not only made use of proper watchmaking techniques but was fashionable and different too. This anniversary edition will become a real collector’s piece for fans of the brand.’
