A. Lange & Söhne 1815 “200th Anniversary of F.A. Lange”

February 18, 2015 marked what would have been the 200th birthday of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, one of the founding fathers of Saxon watchmaking and namesake of the modern A. Lange & Söhne Swiss replica watches sale brand, founded by his great-grandson. To commemorate this milestone, the brand has released a limited-edition timepiece, the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 “200th Anniversary F.A. Lange.”

A. Lange & Söhne’s 1815 collection, which derives its name from the year of F.A. Lange’s birth, provides the appropriate platform for the new replica watches, which is limited to (again, appropriately) 200 pieces worldwide, all sold through A. Lange & Söhne boutiques. And the fact that the company chose the 1815 model’s clean, elegant design — just an hours and minutes display, along with small seconds on a subdial at 6 o’clock, a layout reminiscent of those on Lange’s historic pocketwatches — pays tribute to the simplicity of the founder’s earliest horological achievements, before he attained international renown with chronographs, remontoirs, jumping-seconds models and repeaters.

The A. Lange & Sohne 1815 “200th Anniversary F.A. Lange” comes in a 40-mm-diameter platinum case and a black dial made of solid silver. The hands are in rhodiumed gold, and the cheap replica watches uk has a sapphire crystal in the front and back. Whereas the front crystal showcases the dial’s classical simplicity, the view through the caseback offers a glimpse into the complex artistry of traditional Saxon watchmaking, as pioneered by Ferninand Adolph Lange.

The watch’s manufacture movement, manual-wind Caliber L051.1, bears all the hallmarks of the classical Glashütte horological style, including the three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver, a hand-engraved balance cock, classical screw balance, whiplash spring, gold chatons to secure the bearing jewels, and thermally blued screws. The three-quarter plate, in particular, is a living symbol of F.A. Lange’s contributions to German Swiss fake watchmaking, invented in its current form in 1864 for the purpose of better stabilizing the overall movement.

The A. Lange & Sohne 1815 “200th Anniversary F.A. Lange” is delivered on a had-stitched black alligator leather strap with a platinum pronged buckle. Each watch bears an engraved series number (001 through 200) on the caseback. It will be priced at $33,500. Scroll down for more specs on the best replica watches uk.

Blancpain Villeret Grande Date

For the first time in the Villeret Collection, Blancpain’s most classical timepieces, Blancpain is offering the complication of a grand date. Both elegant and practical, Blancpain’s grand date employs two side-by-side windows for a display affording optimal readability.

When Blancpain’s Swiss replica watchmakers conceived the caliber 6950, they had as their objective to maximize legibility of the date, while at the same time enabling an instant change at midnight. At the same time, they set out to ensure that the mechanism would not significantly increase the movement’s profile. The result: an automatic movement with two mainspring barrels and a date mechanism designed to resist shocks. It further distinguishes itself with its free sprung balance with a silicium spiral and regulated by gold regulation screws. Fully having proven its capacities, this is the movement that powers the new Villeret Grande Date timepiece.

This new timepiece fits harmoniously within Blancpain’s classical Villeret collection. The timepieces within the Villeret line express the timeless values of traditional replica watchmaking with their understated refined design. Key Villeret signature elements have been woven into this newest timepiece with its red gold 40 mm double pomme case, opaline dial with applied Roman numerals, red gold hands, date display at 6 o’Clock, and a clear sapphire caseback offering a view of the finishing of the movement and its honeycomb-pattern oscillating weight. Completing the ensemble is a chocolate brown alligator strap.

Three Things to Know About the Patek Philippe Chiming Jump Hour

The ornate, double-dialed Grandmaster Chime has dominated coverage of Patek Philippe’s 175th anniversary, which the brand marked last year. It is an amazing timepiece that makes a big statement. The Swiss fake watches we’re going to look at today is its counterpoint. With one dial and two hands, it appears to be the paradigm of simplicity, but it’s not.

The Patek Philippe Chiming Jump Hour is one of the timepieces Patek Philippe has created to celebrate its 175th anniversary. Bearing Reference 5275P-001, it will be produced in a limited edition of 175 pieces, priced at SFr. 310,000. As the name indicates, this watch offers a jumping hour display with minutes and small seconds, and it strikes a single chime at the top of each hour. Let’s take a look at why this cheap replica watches is much more than meets the eye.

1. Complexity and Rarity

The old adage about not judging a book by its cover was written for the Chiming Jump Hour. If you don’t think a watch that looks this simple can be complex, consider this number: 438. That’s how many parts there are in the movement. Remember, this best Swiss replica watches displays hours, minutes, and seconds, and it strikes a single chime at the top of each hour. That’s it. Compare the parts count with (apparently) much more complicated Patek Philippe Caliber R TO 27 PS found in the Ref. 5539. That movement offers central hours and minutes, small seconds, a minute repeater and a tourbillon, and it contains 336 parts – 102 fewer than the Chiming Jump Hour. That gives you a sense of the 5275P’s hidden complexity. As we’ll discuss below, most of the complexity is due to the fact that all three time displays are of the jumping variety – a so-called “triple-jump” timepiece.

Now consider that this entirely new, highly complex movement, that took four years to develop and that has four patents, will be used exclusively in the Chiming Jump Hour, which is a limited edition of 175 pieces. That so much effort would be invested in a movement that will appear only once, in a limited-edition timepiece, is remarkable.

2. Energy Management

Striking and jumping complications are power-hungry, and this replica Montblanc watches has four of them. Most repeating watches employ a second mainspring to power the strikes. Most jumping displays employ separate springs to store and release energy. Yet the Chiming Jump Hour has only a one mainspring, and a small spring for the jumping seconds. The chime, the jumping hours (displayed on a heavy disk), and jumping minutes are all powered by the lone mainspring, yet the power reserve is a healthy 48 hours.

Patek accomplished this with a combination of new and patented mechanisms, and with modern materials. Specifically, the lever and the wolf-tooth wheel in the jumping seconds system are made from Silinvar, Patek’s version of silicon. The material is extremely light and almost friction free, so it saps very little energy. We’ll discuss the springless-jumping displays in the next section. Patek’s achievement is such that even with a single mainspring, the Chiming Jump Hour offers a 48-hour power reserve. This is especially remarkable when you consider that at the top of each hour, the chime strikes while the hours, minutes and seconds jump simultaneously.

3. Synchrony

When the hands on a traditional Swiss replica watches uk circle the dial, you don’t even think about whether they all cross 12 at precisely the same moment. However when hands jump instantly, the eye will catch even a tiny discrepancy in the motion. To make sure the Chiming Jump Hour’s hands jump at precisely the same moment, Patek had to devise a new mechanism, and it is protected by another patent.

Patek says that the mechanisms it devised not only store the energy required to make the jumps, but they also synchronize the jumps. The fourth wheel (seconds hand) carries a snail cam that allows a ruby pallet to drop over the cam’s peak after each full revolution. Via a lever, this briefly releases the center wheel (minutes hand), allowing it to turn clockwise by six degrees concurrently with the fourth wheel. The center and fourth wheels advance at the same moment, so the seconds and minutes hands jump simultaneously.

Swiss watch exports in 2014

The year 2014 came to a close in a more difficult context for the Swiss watch industry, however exports by the sector continued to grow. The annual result recorded a total value of 22.2 billion francs, corresponding to an increase of 1.9% compared to 2013. As in 2013, which recorded exactly the same rate of growth, 2014 will have been a year of consolidation at a high level. Mention must be made however of the negative trend observed in November and December, linked to the autumn events in Hong Kong and the decline of the Chinese market.

Watch exports remained positive over the year, despite a gradual loss of momentum. While the first half- year saw an increase in value of 3.1%, growth was only 0.8% in the second half. Meanwhile the fourth quarter was marginally negative, with a decline of -0.3%. Even if this downturn is not hugely significant in itself, the emerging trend in recent months points to a more difficult situation for Swiss replica watches sale exports, not to mention serious consequences attributable to the strength of the franc.

In an environment which is clearly less robust, forecasts have been revised. In 2015, cheap replica watches uk exports are expected to remain stable in relation to 2014. Exchange rate fluctuations in particular will continue to be monitored closely and the results of the first months of 2015 will be decisive in assessing the general situation.


Exports by the best Swiss fake watches industry consisted essentially of wristwatches. With a value of 21.0 billion francs, these accounted for nearly 95% of total exports. This result exceeded that of 2013 by 1.7%. In parallel, the number of timepieces exported also rose by 1.7%. Thus, 28.6 million watches left Switzerland in 2014, almost half a million more than in 2013.

Growth was buoyed by mechanical watches, which recorded upturns both in value and volume terms (+3.4% and +8.8% respectively). They accounted for just over a quarter of timepieces exported and generated nearly 80% of sales. Quartz new replica watches uk stagnated in volume terms (-0.9%) and lost several points in terms of value (-4.1%).

The main materials progressed uniformly by value, staying very close to the sector average. In volume terms, steel, which accounted for more than one in every two Swiss replica watches for men exported, registered the same high level as in 2013. For the year as a whole, the category of other materials rose sharply by volume (+14.7%), whereas the category of other metals recorded a steep downturn (-19.4%). These contrasting trends offset one another, resulting in an overall increase of 1.7%.

Among the different price segments, growth was a common feature of 2014. Watches costing less than 200 francs (export price) accounted for half the rise in volumes. The 200-500 franc category slowed its rate of growth but remained the most dynamic of 2014.men’s replica watches between 500 and 3,000 francs remained relatively stable compared to 2013. The higher-price segment rose by 2.7% (in value and volume terms) and contributed greatly to the increase in total value.

The American continent (+4.5%) recorded above-average growth, thanks mainly to the United States (+6.2%) where the rate of growth was higher still. Asia recorded an upturn of 2.8%, albeit with disparities between markets. Hong Kong (-0.0%) attained the same level as in 2013. The leading market for best luxury replica Swiss watches exports staged a recovery in the first half-year, but showed little movement in the second half, before hitting a wall at the end of the period. On a broader scale, China showed the same profile however the final result was negative (-3.1%). Despite a slowdown which took effect in September, Japan (+15.2%) ended the year with an excellent result. Middle Eastern markets also registered strong increases, however the best performer was South Korea (+18.5%) which continued to surge ahead.

After a neutral first half-year, Europe ended the period with a decline of 1.2%. Not all markets followed the same trend. Italy remained stable (+0.5%), whereas Germany (-6.4%) and France (-6.0%) recorded downturns of similar magnitude. The United Kingdom (+2.3%) and Spain (+9.8%) recorded above par results, while Russia (-1.2%) ended the year slightly below its 2013 level.
