Favre-Leuba Fake Bathy V2

Maison Favre-Leuba continues its quest for perfection in the art of fine watchmaking since its establish from 1737. An art which finds its expression in the elegance and simplicity of the timepieces, in the subtle harmony of unique, modern design and innovative techniques.

In the year of 1737 ofLe Locle, a small Swiss village in the Jura mountains and in the heart of the watchmaking world, Abraham Favre decided to officially register his Manufacture producing timepieces whch was one of the earliest watchmaking companies. From the very start Abraham Favre concentrated on improving the technology of his timepieces, and the quality of the materials employed in their manufacture. Thanks to his hard work and pioneering spirit, the business expanded and was passed down through eight generations of the Favre family. It was his grandson Henry-Auguste, who in 1814 went a step further by going into partnership with Auguste Leuba, a watch dealer from Buttes in the Val-de-Travers.

By the 19th and early 20th centuries Favre-Leuba had ramifications around the world, with offices or representations throughout the Middle East, India and Asia, North/South America, Russia and other European countries. The business remained in the same family over eight generations, through to 1969. Then the quartz revolution came along, bringing many changes for the industry.

Favre-Leuba, one of the largest companies of its time, passed through different hands such as Benedom SA and LVMH before finally regaining its independence in 2003. Now the brand is owned by Tata Group. Proud of its nearly 300 years of uninterrupted history, Favre-Leuba enjoys a well-deserved worldwide reputation for its legendary watch movements and unique designs.

History of Favre Leuba watch brand
The 18th century was the century of Enlightenment. Europe teemed with inventors and thinkers, whose genius transformed daring new ideas into crowning achievements. Musicians, artists, philosophers and scientists stamped their times with their courage, passion and remarkable talents. One of them, Abraham Favre, the founder of today’s Favre-Leuba manufactory, decided to try his hand at making watches.

Tucked away in La Chaux-de-Fonds in the Neuchâtel Jura, this church elder became initiated into the complexities of watchmaking in 1718 under the watchful eye of Mr Gagnebin, an experienced master watchmaker. Horological knowledge in exchange for a furnished room, polished shoes and firewood for heating up soup; such was the agreement which led to the birth of one of Switzerland’s most prestigious watch brands. Graduating from passionate enthusiast to specialist, Mr Abraham Favre decided to become a watchmaker. His profession was soon recognized and officially recorded on “the thirtieth of March seventeen thirty-seven” in Le Locle. In a carefully-preserved document, Mr Abraham Sandoz-Genton, solicitor, confirmed that “Mr Abram Favre, son of Mr Abram Favre, church elder and part-time judge of La Chaux-de-Fonds” was officially declared a “watchmaker.

This official registration in 1737 represented the first major consecration of a life dedicated to the art of watchmaking as well as the establishment of one of the very first watch companies in Switzerland. Thanks to this ingenious craftsman’s pioneering spirit and strong work ethic, this small company has gone from strength to strength over the eight generations it has been passed down from father to son. Favre-Leuba has a long, impressive and astonishing history: the first Favre watchmaker mentioned in the notarized acts of 1718, a manufactory officially registered in 1737, a promotion to the position of “Master watchmaker of Le Locle” certified in 1751, a close working relationship until the end of the 18th century with Jacques-Frédéric Houriet, the father of Swiss chronometry, and an unbroken line of eight generations of watchmakers. Like other renowned brands, Favre-Leuba can look back over a long and illustrious history.

One story is that the writer and philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau owned a Favre timepiece. On his way to England in 1765, Jean-Jacques Rousseau spent ten days with his friend Doctor Abraham Gagnebin, a close relative of Abraham Favre and his son who had the same name. Between walks and other botanical studies in the verdant valleys of the Neuchâtel mountains, it is nice to imagine them talking about the art of watchmaking and giving expression to man’s enigmatic and intimate relationship with time. Born in 1712 into a family of watchmakers, Rousseau would certainly have been intrigued by the expertise and craftsmanship displayed by Abraham Favre, his son Abraham and his son-in-law Jacques-Frédéric Houriet.

At the end of the 18th century was a violent and dangerous time. Triumphant in Paris, the French Revolution of 1789 had divided the people of France, divisions that were felt as far away as the Neuchâtel mountains. In both Le Locle and La Chaux de-Fonds, revolutionary agitators clashed with the ideas of the counter revolutionaries. Despite the political and economic turmoil, life went on. In 1795, a letter from Jacques-Frédéric Houriet shows that he was still happily and confidently working with Abraham Favre’s son, whose work he described as “meticulous” and “exceptional”. Here was further testimony of Favre’s attention to detail and mastery, qualities that have been transmitted from generation to generation.

The Favres, however, have not been the only actors in this story. Early in the 19th century, the Leubas joined forces with them and helped build up the company. Under their combined commercial and artistic expertise, the company flourished both in Switzerland and abroad, gaining an international reputation in the process. Besides a concern for quality and precision, the watch trade demanded a keen sense of business.

From Le Locle to Valparaiso, Moscow, New York, Beirut, Bahrain and Singapore:exotic names that conjure up exciting journeys, enriching experiences and enduring impressions. Souvenirs of this conquest of distant markets include Fritz Favre’s passport, stamped in 1863 in Saint-Petersburg on the orders of His Imperial Majesty Alexander II, Tsar of all the Russias, letters sent from London and Panama, medals from the 1855 Universal Exposition in Paris, a letter sent to Fritz Favre in Chile, accounts of journeys from Bombay and Calcutta, etc.

No country seemed beyond the reach of this family business, giving it the dimension of a truly international brand. This is shown by the company’s letterhead from the end of the 19th century, reproduced here. Ignoring the risks of travelling by coach, train, steamer or plane, the Favres and Leubas have conducted business in the remotest regions of the world, thereby confirming their dynamism, unfailing optimism and passionate commitment.

Under the leadership of Henry A. Favre during the years following the Second World War, the company continued efforts to improve the technology of the watch movements, focusing on improving their properties under temperature variations. This research indeed resulted in more accurate and reliable movements, most of which are still running well today – some 50 years later. The FL251 movement designed in 1962 is a good example of these exceptional masterpieces: it is an extra-thin twin-barrel movement with a centre second hand and 50 hours of power reserve. It was a good 30 years ahead of its time.

1962 was also important to Favre-Leuba as the year when the “Bivouac” was launched, the first wristwatch with an altimeter and barometer function. It was a runaway success and became a must for the major expeditions of the time. Paul-Emile Victor used it in Antarctica, Vaucher and Bonatti for conquering the north face of the “Grandes Jorasses” in the Alps. Many others followed in their footsteps. 1964 saw the launch of one of the earliest diving timepieces, the “Deep Blue”, which was waterproof to 200m.

In 1966 came the legendary “Bathy”, a unique mechanical instrument giving divers not only a precise indication of their time under water, but also a direct and accurate reading of their actual depth. The “Sea Raider” followed in 1970, with a true techno-logical break-through : their first high frequency movement of 36’000 vibrations per hour giving the watch unparalleled accuracy.

Proud of its 300-year history, the watch company was managed by eight generations of Favres and Leubas, before a short ”eclipse” at the end of the twentieth century. Two sons of Henry A. Favre, Florian A. &Eric A. Favre, continued to lead the company as the eighth generation. The introduction of cheap quartz movements in 1969 nevertheless plugged the Swiss watch industry into serious crisis, which did not stop at the gates of Favre-Leuba’s workshops. After integration into the Saphir Group, to which Jaeger-LeCoultre also belonged, the family was subsequently compelled to sell the brand in the 1980s. After that, the company changed ownership, with owners including Benedom SA and LVMH.

On November 16th, 2011, Titan Company Limited, the watch manufacturing company of the Tata Group acquired the brand and transferred its company headquarters to Zug.

Legendary Watch Models by Favre Leuba
BIVOUAC(1962): The revolutionary BIVOUAC has been regarded as an essential instrument for mountaineers since its launch in 1962. It is equipped with multiple measurement functions, one of which indicates the altitude and the weather based on barometric pressure. The aneroid barometer is a real mechanical marvel that functions by means of a partial vacuum in a metal capsule, which contracts when the air pressure is high and expands when it is low. These variations are amplified and transmitted to a mechanism which, coupled with an altimeter, displays the information on the dial.
– Rotating bezel with mobile altitude scale
– Barometric scale with red marker at 760 mmHg
– Red altimeter-barometer hand

Before worrying about rust, watchmakers sought a way to combat dust. It was from research into sealing their timepieces against air-born impurities that the first water-resistant watches were born. But it was thanks to the invention of the screw-down crown that the first truly waterproof watch was made. Since then, diver’s watches have undergone spectacular progress, aided by their use in submarine combat units.

BATHY (1966): It was with the BATHY that Favre-Leuba created the first depth gauge graduated in metres (50 m) and feet (160 ft). Besides indicating the length of time spent underwater, the BATHY gave divers a direct and accurate reading of their depth.The BATHY still embodies the Favre-Leuba spirit: inventing new precision instruments that unite the art of watchmaking and a passion for sport.

– Water-resistance tested to 10 atm
– Unidirectional rotating bezel with 60 notches for calculating diving time
– Decompression stages indicator
– High-resistance glass
– Fluorescent displays

THE MERCURY COLLECTION: Favre-Leuba launched a new collection in 2007: Mercury. Inspired by the eclipse of the planet Mercury by Venus in 1737 – the year that the Favre Manufacture was officially registered – this collection marked the return of the brand to the centre of the watch stage. The Mercury collection illustrates Favre-Leuba’s on-going commitment to quality and inspiration as well as its dedication to perfection. It comprises three lines: Mercury Chronograph FL 301, Mercury Big Date FL 302 and Mercury Power Reserve FL 303. These precious timepieces, fitted with automatic movements with additional manufactory-made modules, are distinguished by their superior design and the meticulous attention paid to the finishing.

Fake Bathy V2 : More than 40 years after its revolutionary impact on the world of diver’s watches, this exceptional timekeeper features new mechanical functions and an imposing design. The legendary Bathy is guaranteed to make generations of divers dream for a long time to come. A watch of superlatives with vigorous, contemporary lines, the Bathy has made a grand comeback, both under the sea and on the land.

The fascinating replica Bathy V2 is automatic whose depth gauge works on a beryllium copper membrane. The water enters the double back through four large visible openings on the side. The resulting pressure causes the membrane to contract. By means of a complex mechanism, this contraction, no more than a few tenths of a millimetre, moves the hand on the dial, and does so with unparalleled precision: less than 0.18% deviation for the depth gauge at 45 metres!

This precision – extended to its limits in the most extreme conditions – is one of Favre-Leuba’s trademarks. And, of course, the diver’s safety depends on it. Also for reasons of safety, all the important diving indications are coated with Superluminova to provide optimum legibility: the rotating flange(for measuring the duration of the dive in minutes), the minute and depth-gauge hands and the scale (in metres or feet depending on the version).

This makes the visual contrast, with the depth indicated in a choice of red, yellow or orange, all the more striking! The two screw-down crowns guarantee total water resistance to 300 metres. Despite the watch’s particularly impressive dimensions – 50mm in diameter and 18mm thick – it is unbelievably light. And the case is made in Grade 5 titanium, the best quality, like all the materials used by Favre-Leuba.

Replica Swiss Made NTH Oberon and Scorpène — hands-on review November 21, 2016

NTH Oberon

Chris Vail, the founder of Lew Huey told me about a new project a completely new brand he was working on, NTH. He created an umbrella company called Janis Trading Co. that includes both replica Lew & Huey and NTH.

NTH is mainly inspired by vintage Rolex and Tudor Submariner watches. There were eight models in this  replica collection (the Näcken – Vintage, Black is already sold out) sharing the same 40 mm stainless steel case, crown and oyster-style bracelet with their bezel and dial that sets them apart offering a wide range of choices for fans of vintage tool  replica watches. For this review, Chris sent me two very different replica models, the Oberon, a vintage Rolex Submariner homage and the Scorpène, the outlier of the bunch, more of a pilot style watch. The high quality fake watches I received are final prototypes, 98% same as the production models, giving an accurate image of what to expect from the real deal.

The fold-over push-button clasp bearing the NTH logo.

Adjusting a bracelet or changing a strap is probably the closest most of us gets to watchmaking and it always fills me with admiration for those who practice this craft. Adjusting the bracelet was a straightforward business and despite my small wrist, they felt really solid and comfortable at the same time. The secure feeling is reinforced also by the branded fold-over push-button clasp.

NTH Oberon

The bracelet, the clasp and the case have a subtle brushed finish that gives them that solid tool-watch allure, the only polished surface is the chamfered edges of the case that nicely highlights the shape of the case and the curved lugs. The screw-down crown is very well designed, it is shaped to be easy to pull out, it offers a good grip, and despite its large size, it did not hurt my hand thanks to its narrow profile.

One of my favourite features of the replica Subs collection is the size of these fake watches, with their diameter of 40 mm and a lug-to-lug length of 48 mm, they are tool fake watches that are wearable in any situation, without feeling awkward about having a tank on your wrist. 11.5 mm thick? That is actually quite slim for a diver watch and thanks to the domed crystal, it will easily go under your cuff.

The back of the NTH Scorpène

The solid back of the replciawatch has a rather spartan look, it reminds me the replcia watches issued by the military. There is nothing fancy on the circular brushed cover, all you can find engraved with tiny characters is: “316L Steel, Automatic, Saphire”, with the NTH logo between them. I would have preferred it to have a distinctive element between the two models, without going overboard with an engraving, or a stamped model of the submarine after which the fake watch is named, but at least something to say Oberon or Scorpène would have been nice. Under the lid, all NTH Subs are powered by the automatic Miyota 9015, that will run about 42 h when fully wound. While I did not go into the water with them, they are water resistant to 300 meters.

NTH Oberon

So far we went through all the features that are shared by the two models, let’s now look at the differences. The Oberon is an unmistakable homage to vintage Rolex Submariner watches, the hands, even the lume-filled fonts on the bezel are the same as on a Submariner. While the look of the bezel is different on the two models, the 120-click unidirectional mechanism on both replica watches is really precise, they are among the best I handled from a microbrand.

I’m in love with the waffle pattern of the black dial on the Oberon, it is absolutely gorgeous and it gives the fake watch a high-end look and it is an elegant nod to early Submariner models. The numerals, the indexes and the hands are filled with vintage lume, again the result is fantastic. While the Oberon I received has a date window between four and five o’clock, you have to know that on the Janis Trading website, you can have the choice of going with or without the date window when purchasing your watch.

NTH Scorpène

The Scorpène is an interesting model, to me, it looks like a pilot fake watch, and at first it felt strange that the bezel rotates only in one direction. Other than this, it is a beast, a no-nonsense tool replica watch with a high contrasting dial, large numerals, bold hands over a daring minute’s scale, the visibility is fantastic. During the past weeks that I had the two fake watches, I found myself wearing the Scorpène more often. While I really like the Oberon, because of its wafer dial, the vintage lume, and it’s overall old-school Rolex look, the Scorpène talked to me more probably because I can’t really put my finger on a specific replica watch that inspired it and Chris confirmed that it follows the design of generic pilot clocks.

The NTH logo on the crown of the Subs collection is lume filled

We are used with diver watches to have lume on the bezel, the hands and the dial. With the Subs collection, even the NTH logo on the crown has lume insert. Does it serve any purpose? No. Is it super cool? Absolutely!

As you can see on the picture below, the Oberon shines in green, while the lume on the Scorpène is blue in the dark. While both replica  watches have a generous amount of lume coating and they work well in dark, when it comes to brightness, I have to give extra points to the Oberon, its lume proved to be stronger than on the Scorpène.

NTH Oberon and Scorpène

This review took me longer than usual because of several personal projects overlapping and Chris was kind enough to bear with me, giving me the opportunity to wear the Oberon and the Scorpène for several weeks and during this time, I had them on my wrist every single day. The crown, the bezel, the bracelet, both fake watches look and feel solid and masculine. Do you collect tool fake watches, take a look at the NTH Subs collection. Your collection is missing a diver’s fake watch or a pilot’s piece, again, you can’t go wrong with a replica watch from Chris Vail.

High Quality Fake Cheap Swiss Made Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review November 15, 2016

Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

Jacob & Co.’s unofficial mandate is to continually impress and surprise its core base of customers, which is targeted members of the ultra elite, the people who tend to buy  fake Jacob & Co. watches aren’t looking for sheer value or refined brand prestige. What the people who buy Jacob & Co. replica watches want is novelty and originality. As Mr. Jacob Arabo’s enduring mission is to satisfy his customers, his challenge is to keep things fresh, keep things interesting, and in many cases keep things complicated.

Replica Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 watch came from isn’t really inspired by anything Jacob & Co. has in the past – which is actually a point of pride for the brand given that they are always trying to come up with something new. I don’t think we covered the replica Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 on aBlogtoWatch when it first came out a few years ago. We did, however, cover the new-for-2016, even more high-end version called the fake Jacob & Co Epic SF 24 Flying Tourbillon. What’s that all about? Well, you guess it, it is the fake Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 watch you see here, but with the inclusion of a large flying tourbillon on the dial.

Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

In titanium sans and precious stones, this is about as bare-bones as a replica Jacob & Co. “complicated” watch gets. What’s complicated about it? Well, the entire concept of the Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 watch is simple, and that is to adapt the notion of a “split flat” (where the “SF” part of the name comes from) system as the world time indicator. The interesting world time indicator system of course needed to be integrated into an otherwise traditional watch, so here the designer sort of attached the cylindrical-shaped split flat system on the top part of the case.

Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

The marriage of a round case with the attached region for the world time indicator works, but it isn’t what anyone might refer to as the peak of elegance. There is a handsome functional sense to the logic in how the watch works, and its overall utility and legibility. It earns praise there, but I wouldn’t call the replica Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 a conventionally attractive luxury watch.

It is, however, remarkably comfortable. Put the fake Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 on your wrist and you can hardly believe how comfortably it fits. I’ve actually experienced this with a number of Jacob & Co. watches  – many of which seem to have totally weird cases. The brand does seem to put a lot of effort in to wearing comfort. It might not be a universal rule, but in the context of strange watch cases, more feel comfortable on the wrist from Jacob & Co. than I find is the case with odd watch cases from many other brand

Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

At 45mm wide (water resistant to 30 meters), the fake Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 case has a nice solid feel to it along with the customary low weight that comes from its titanium construction. Much of the case is also made from pieces of AR-coated sapphire crystal, as well as inset rubber along the sides of the case, in the crown, and for the world time indicator adjuster button. Most of the case is just 13.65mm thick, but the case has its maximum thickness of 16.7mm thick where the world time capsule is.

Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

Split flap information display systems are uniquely appropriate because they, like mechanical watches, are a vestige from before the electronic screen displays and were often found in places such as airports and train stations. A series of flaps rotate in a circle like an old Rolodex to indicate various information. This is adopted to a world time indicator where the flaps indicate a reference city as well as a time in 24-hour format to the right of the reference city

Jacob & Co. Epic SF 24 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

To set up the world time system, as with similar watches, the user needs to synchronize the fake watch to their local time, and then adjust properly. A push on the button to the left of the split flap system advances the reference time zone ahead one hour. I do hope Jacob & Co, designs the split flap world timer system to be very durable because who ever wears this watch is going to be constantly playing with this complication.

Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance Replica Watch UK On Sale November 10, 2016

Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance Watch
ARMIN STROM releases the Mirrored Force Resonance which is an innovative resonating dual regulator fake watch with a highly original caliber design that is on full display dial side and all made in-house.  Head of watchmaking & technical director Claude Greisler, along with the rest of the Armin Strom team, have really outdone themselves with this new and innovative take on the resonance concept.  Claude Greisler’s idea behind the Mirrored Force Resonance was to create an innovative way of improving an old concept, one that is horology’s very reason for being: precision and accuracy.
In the general field of physics, the phenomenon of resonance says that two oscillating bodies in proximity influence each other and eventually synchronize (see Did You Know? below).  In horology, resonance is a sophisticated, demanding — and obscure technique.   But it is not new — in fact resonance has enchanted many a watchmaker over the past several centuries, including some of horology’s finest such as Abraham-Louis Breguet.  Which makes this new watch from Armin Strom — made entirely in-house and with its symmetrical twin display of seconds bound by a single spring — all the more intriguing. I think its safe to say that the Mirrored Force Resonance is now the most complicated timepiece that Armin Strom manufactures.  And no surprise then that this innovation is also patent-pending.

Fake Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance

Unlike the majority of watch companies operating today, fake ARMIN STROM is a full-fledged manufacture with in-house manufacturing capability.   Not surprising then that the replica resonant Caliber ARF15 (a classically constructed manually wound movement) was conceived, manufactured, assembled, and regulated in-house. In fact it was a necessity: the resonance clutch spring needed to realize the Mirrored Force Resonance’s twin display of seconds was so technical that the brand’s team, under the direction of technical director Claude Greisler, was left with no choice other than to create what it needed in house.   The ARF 15 beats at a 3.5 Hertz (25,200 vph) frequency, allowing the observer to really appreciate the patented, resonant regulators in action.

Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance Watch

The fake resonance clutch spring comprises only a traditional horological material: steel.  Greisler and his team spent fully two and a half years perfecting the shape and characteristics of the spring: calculating, optimizing, simulating, testing, and improving again and again until the spring had the optimal, unique form needed to connect ARMIN STROM’s two sets of oscillators, each comprising twin balance wheels and balance springs.  Since the two connected oscillators make their revolutions in opposite directions, which is eminently visible on the dial side of the replica watch, one rotating clockwise and the other counterclockwise, the animated elements look much like they are performing a magic trick. If the 48-hour power reserve has been exhausted and the movement requires a fresh injection of energy through winding, the twin balance wheels need approximately 10 minutes to become synchronous. In case of any outside influence in the form of shock, it takes only a few minutes for the two balances to find their resonant rhythm once again.  This is because it is not the balance wheels that Armin Strom’s technical team has connected using the resonance clutch spring, but rather the balance spring studs, which receive the impulses.  The case band pusher at 2 o’clock resets the luminous twin seconds’ displays to zero, simultaneously resetting the twin balance wheels.

Did You Know?

The Concept of fake Resonance

In the pursuit of horological accuracy, precision, and rate stability resonance has generally involved utilizing two independent mainsprings, gear trains, escapements, and balances, each connected by a rack and pinion to allow fine tuning of the distance between them. Precise adjustment of the distance between the two regulators is necessary to incite resonance, which sees the two balances finding a concurrent rhythm in opposite directions so as to continuously average out errors for maximum accuracy.

One body in motion relays its vibrations to its surroundings. When another body with a similar natural resonant frequency to the first receives these vibrations, it will absorb energy from the first and start vibrating at the same frequency in a sympathetic manner.  The first body acts as the “exciter,” while the second acts as the “resonator.”

The phenomenon of synchronized motion in horology has fascinated fake watchmakers since the time of Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695). Huygens, inventor of the pendulum clock, was the first to discover the resonance of two separate pendulum clocks, which he logically surmised should keep slightly different time. When hung from a common beam, however, the pendulums of the adjacent clocks synchronized; subsequent researchers confirmed that the common wooden beam coupled the vibrations and created resonance. The two pendulums functioned as one in a synchronous manner. In the eighteenth century, Abraham-Louis Breguet demonstrated his mastery of the phenomenon with his double pendulum resonance clock.

The advantages of resonance are threefold:

A stabilizing effect on timekeeping (advantageous to accuracy).

  1. A conservation of energy (think of a professional cyclist riding in the shadow of another cyclist in a racing situation).
  2. A reduction of negative effects on timekeeping accuracy due to outside perturbation such as shock to the balance staff, which in turn keeps the rate more stable and increases precision.
  3. An outside shock that slows one of the balances down increases the speed of the other one by the same amount; both balances will strive to get back in resonance, thereby averaging and minimizing the effects of the outside influence as they find their rhythm.

To provide an idea of how difficult the horological execution of this concept is, an exhaustive list of watchmakers that have successfully used resonance in an extremely limited number of timepieces includes Antide Janvier (1751-1855), Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), so few modern clock- and watchmakers that they can likely be counted on one hand.

The raison d’être of the Mirrored Force Resonance is to display the interesting functionality of the resonant balances while improving the replica watch’s overall precision. The resonance clutch spring provides the fake watch with a fascinating and patented “animation” of the way it functions. This remains in line with the philosophy of ARMIN STROM as a brand: no nonsense, just good, proprietary mechanics presented in an impeccably finished and interesting way. The resonance clutch spring is exciting in another way, too: it visually proves this timepiece’s resonance.

zenith academy tribute cohiba cigare

Zenith released the limited edition El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Cohiba Edition in May 2016: 50 rose gold pieces and 50 steel watches whose dials were awash with tobacco brown and the signature Cohiba yellow, white and gold pattern to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the habanos brand. Zenith is doing it all again with just 5 of the exclusive fake Academy Christophe Colomb Tribute to Cohiba, again in tribute to Cohiba’s 50th anniversary.zenith academy tribute cohiba closeup

This new  fake watch’s dial brings to mind textured and creased tobacco leaf. The gold disc is shot through with tiny veins which are hand-engraved and enamelled. The hours and minutes appear off-centre at 12, the small seconds at 9 and power reserve at 3. The hour rim features Roman numerals and rose gold dots beneath a pair of spear-shape rose gold-plated hands.

The bottom of the fake Academy Christophe Colomb Tribute to Cohiba dial is filled with a sapphire crystal ball covering a gyroscopic module that holds the regulator horizontally. It controls gravity by protecting the mechanism from earthly forces of attraction that tend to affect a watch’s function and precision.

The displays, 50-hour power reserve and additional module at 6 are fuelled by the El Primero 8804 calibre. The manual wind movement made by Zenith runs at 36,000 beats per hour (5Hz) inside the 45mm rose gold case that’s 14.35mm thick (excluding the sapphire sphere).
