Girard-Perregaux Fake Watches Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT

The Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT model has been conceived by Girard-Perregaux as the latest in a long line of Replica Watches UK creations specifically designed with the international traveling public in mind.   It is available in steel, in pink gold or in a limited edition dedicated to John Harrison to mark the 300th anniversary of the Longitude Act (the latter will be presented later on WorldTempus).

So as to ensure that the Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT offers the wearer maximum comfort, every last detail has been attended to, from the curve of its case band to the perfect alignment of its screwed-down crown.  Thanks to its generous 44 mm diameter and a slim bezel combined with a deep flange, the case offers exceptional legibility.  The date is displayed on the dial in an impressive aperture located at 12 o’clock.  The information relating to the second time-zone are indicated in the counter situated between 4 and 5 o’clock, while the details concerning the moon phases are observed through the aperture opened into the permanent seconds counter.

The precise pattern outlined on the dial, inspired by the Earth’s interlocking meridians and parallels, gives the model an outstanding feeling of volume.  These lines, merging into the dial’s narrow indexes, help to draw the eye to the aperture in which the moon appears.  The precision of its displays and its ultra-detailed graphic treatment combine to make this Fake Watches truly unique.

Water-resistant at up to 100 meters, the satin-brushed and polished case in steel or 18K pink gold houses the GP03300-0093 self-winding manufacture caliber. Vvisible through the transparent case-back, the movement reveals some of its components, including the oscillating weight inspired by the shape of the Girard-Perregaux tourbillon bridge, and shows the great care dedicated by the Manufacture to its finishes, all undertaken in its own workshops.  Delicate but robust, this mechanism, equipped with 35 jewels and a 46-hour power reserve, beats at 28,000 vibrations per hour, to ensure the very highest accuracy in all situations.

The Large Date function

The design patented by Girard-Perregaux displays the date without separating the two numerals that make up the figure.  To achieve this result, the tens disk is opaque while the numerals representing the units are positioned on a transparent disk that is only 0.10 mm thick! The superimposing of these two disks means that the 30 or 31 days of the months can be displayed in an unusual and practical format. This system is linked to an instant date-change, which means that it changes in a fraction of a second (specifically, 15/1000ths of a second).

The Moon Phase function

The indication of the moon’s phases found here is highly unusual the moon is not represented by a simple gold disk on a blue background. Rather, it displays in miniature all the features of the real moon that we can observe in the sky above us on a clear night.  To obtain this level of detail, the image of the heavenly body is metal-plated with a multiplicity of shades of gray on top of an extremely thin disk. This is what gives this representation its unique transparency and the impression of lightness that emanates from it. While remaining ultra-precise in functional terms, this moon is not linked to the conventional gear-train, but rather to the barrel. Thanks to its wheel with 135 indentations, this guarantees such a high degree of accuracy that it will only need to be readjusted by one day after a period of 122 years and 45 days!  One of the delicate silvery stars symbolizing the night sky bears the Girard-Perregaux logo at its center, like a secret signature.

The timepiece is fitted with a large alligator-skin strap  equipped with a folding clasp.

Bell & Ross Replica Watches Breaking the watchmaking sound barrier with the BR-X1

— Bell & Ross Replica Watches launched its highly technical BR-X1 model this week in Paris, taking the brand off in an entirely new direction, with a radical increase in price and a totally different target customer.

In the plush showroom of the Bell & Ross headquarters in central Paris, the brand’s CEO Carlos Rosillo showed a clip from the 1983 film “The Right Stuff” as a prelude to his interview with WorldTempus. Based on the 1979 Tom Wolfe book with the same title, the film starts with Captain Chuck Yeager becoming the first pilot to break the sound barrier. The aircraft in which he achieved this feat was the Bell X-1 and it is therefore understandable that Bell & Ross have chosen the same codename for their new “hypersonic” chronograph, with which the brand aims to break its own watchmaking “sound barrier”.

In commercial terms, the barrier is the psychologically important retail price of 10,000 euros. Since the new limited-edition BR-X1 costs 15,000 euros, the sonic boom it creates is certain to reverberate around the Replica Watches UK industry, as Bell & Ross leaves its familiar territory (a core range priced in the low thousands) to compete head-on with the likes of Audemars Piguet, Hublot and even Richard Mille.

“We are up against Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore and Hublot’s Big Bang Skeleton,” admits Mr Rosillo. “But I think that the customer who is interested in this kind of Replica Watches will buy it because they don’t have it. We will undoubtedly be targeting people who already have these models but who want something new. It may even bring us a completely new type of customer.”

But just how do you break this horological “sound barrier”? “You can either do it with precious metals and stones, or you can do it with a level of technicality,” explains Mr Rosillo. Bell & Ross have clearly chosen the latter option, reinforcing the iconic square BR1 case (in a lightweight grade 5 titanium version) with ceramic and rubber elements for extra robustness. More importantly, the brand has opted for an exclusive skeleton chronograph movement developed in conjunction with Dubois Dépraz, with black DLC bridges in the form of an X.

These technical additions also have some clear ergonomic advantages. The red rubber inserts, for example, offer comfortable points to grip the watch to operate the chronograph and the pivoting chronograph pushers allow an ease of operation that is a delight to anyone familiar with the slight resistance found in most other chronograph pushers. The use of titanium makes the Replica Rolex watches feel surprisingly light on the wrist, despite its 45mm width, while the added ceramic inserts offer extra robustness.

Far from being a mere talking-piece, the new BR-X1 ushers in a new era at the brand that will see more technical pieces being launched in limited editions at higher price points. With only 250 models to be spread across 750 points of sale for the brand worldwide, Bell & Ross is actively courting a certain level of exclusivity with this new strategy.

While the BR X1 maintains the characteristics of the brand’s iconic square model, its modular construction now allows for countless future configurations, where a simple change of colour for the rubber could, for example, create an entirely new piece. “It is a completely modular design akin to a Lego set,” says the CEO, “so we have a lot of flexibility in what we can do with it.”

There are limits, however, even to the hypersonic ambitions of the brand. Mr Rosillo concluded by assuring WorldTempus that these futuristic models will, for the moment at least, be confined to the square case of the BR1.

 The theme of the event celebrating the opening of the A.Lange & Söhne’s first boutique un Moscow was „Never Stand Still“. A special timepiece, a new version of the Langematik Perpetual, was launched on this occasion. Lange’s first self-winding wrist Swiss Replica Watches with a perpetual calendar and an outsize date has been presented in a combination of a white-gold case and a black dial.

Watch retailing Beyond the store: new ways to buy watches

— Faced with the dominance of the big groups at multi-brand Replica Watches UK retailers, and too small to finance their own stores, independent Rolex Replica watches brands are finding new ways to reach customers. But so are some much bigger names.

Nobody can deny that the face of Cheap Replica Watches retailing has changed over the past ten years. The four big groups behind some of the biggest brands in the business: Swatch Group, Richemont, LVMH and Kering (ex-PPR) have invested heavily in what this Franco-centric industry likes to refer to as “boutiques”. The interest for the groups is obvious: the hefty margins paid to retailers, which can account for up to half the retail price of the replica Rolex watches, are funnelled back to the groups instead. In turn, however, the groups have to finance the entire retail operation themselves for each brand. As a kind of “win-win” compromise, many mono-brand stores are operated by local retailers for the brands.

But multi-brand retailers still need the big brands from the big groups to pull in customers. And they often have to take these brands on the condition of stocking other brands from the same group. The independent brands are therefore left to compete with others for the remaining space. At the bottom of the pecking order, the smaller independent brands are finding it increasingly difficult to enter conventional retail channels, with the more adventurous looking for entirely new ways of reaching out to customers.

Romain Gauthier faces an additional challenge in selling his high-end timepieces. Although the brand is popular and retailers are keen to stock it, his target customers are less keen to be seen shopping in such stores and thus remain out of reach.

Pop-up stores – from fashion to high-end Replica Watches For Sale

Capitalising on the proximity to the customer, a concept as old as the market stall, Chanel has adapted the idea of the pop-up store from the fashion industry for selling its iconic J12 collection. But the brand aimed high, settling for nothing less than the location of the luxury Le Printemps department store nestled under the glass pyramid of Le Louvre, the most-visited museum in the world. The luxury goods department of Le Printemps in the commercial area of the museum allows tourists to meet their two main reasons for visiting Paris: culture and luxury shopping.

The store was open for three months over the summer of 2014 and was dedicated exclusively to the brand’s timepieces. Chanel have not given any hint of the success of the operation, but Le Printemps at the Louvre expects its revenues to top €20 million this year. And the Louvre expects attendance to increase by 30% over the next ten years. Chanel’s pop-up store is therefore unlikely to remain an exception, especially with other watch brands already present in the Carrousel du Louvre.
Exhibition-cum-store

“The biggest challenge for us is not designing or producing watches or movements. It is selling them,” says Pierre DuBois, co-CEO of the independent watch brand Pierre DeRoche. With a production of around 250 watches per year, the brand is finding it increasingly difficult to tap the existing retail network.

 

Brands & Roman club

A club atmosphere awaits visitors to Brands & Roman in St. Prex, between Lausanne and Geneva.

On the occasion of its tenth anniversary, Pierre DeRoche inaugurated an exhibition at a unique new type of retail location on the shores of Geneva. Far from the bustling centre of Geneva, in an 18th century building complete with its own natural spring, Roman Buchi has set up an exhibition and retail space with a club atmosphere near the lakeside village of St. Prex. Here he sells his own jewellery designs and selected other brands, including Pierre DeRoche. “Brands & Roman”, as the young enterprise is called, offers visitors and members of its own Club B&R the chance to view the exhibits in a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of Geneva and Lausanne.

You have to consciously visit the place, of course, which discounts any possibility of passing trade. But visitors can expect an eclectic mix of items from handcrafted shawls, and vintage cameras to artwork, watches and jewellery designed by Mr Buchi himself.
The rebel’s club

Hautlence is taking a more mono-brand approach with a view to setting up Hautlounges, where visitors can immerse themselves into the brand. Like monobrand stores but without the expense, such clubs offer an exclusive environment for a brand to portray itself as it wishes. This is all the more important for a brand such as Hautlence, which has just reinvented its image, asking its customers and fans to “Cross the Line” and show a rebellious streak – something that may be frowned upon in a more traditional retail setting.

With the dominance of the big groups set to continue for some time to come, such novel approaches may take on an ever-greater importance in Rolex Replica watches retailing. The spoils will be reaped by brands like those above who have taken the risk and sought out alternative solutions to this problem.
