In 2016, I was sitting in my living-room with my dachshund on my lap, when Jean-Claude Biver explained to me his goal with the El Primero 21, in his role as the head of LVMH Watches. He said: "Chopard Replica El Primero has been around for half a century. It is an amazing movement. So I told the Chopard Replica team that you had to create the El Primero for today. To create the El Primero for the 21st Century, you must master 100ths of a sec. You must have a reliable movement and a watch at a reasonable price to achieve this.
My dog was briefly startled when he banged my dining table to end his emphatic speech. Chopard Replica reached this goal two years before Chopard Replica celebrated its mid-century anniversary.Chopard Replica This was achieved by sharing expertise with TAG Heuer, a brand owned by LVMH, and in particular the Mikrograph movement, a 1/100th-of-a-second chronograph. It was a limited edition of 100 pieces that had two balance wheels. One for the time-telling function beat at 5 Hertz, and the other one for the chronograph. This was done to ensure that the chronograph oscillator would only be activated once the chronograph function was initiated.
The DEFY 21 Urban Jungle, with its 44mm ceramic case in khaki green, is powered by El Primero 9004 self-winding automatic movement.
El Primero 9004 is equipped with two different escapement systems: one for the Chronograph (366,000 VpH at 5 Hz), and another for the Watch (36,000 VpH at 50 Hz).
The impressive thing, however, was the integration of the two balance-wheel setup into a Chopard Replica titanium watch that cost 10,600 US Dollars when it was first launched.omega seamaster replica It was an incredible value proposition. Especially when you activated start and saw a thin, long chronograph second hand which completed a full rotation of the dial every second.
Comparatively, watches such as Francois-Paul Journe's Centigraph that cost 5-6 times more than the watch in question do not use a true balance wheel beating at 1/100th second, but rather a reduction gearing. Chopard Replica Defy 21 features hairsprings that are made of carbon nanotubes, which do not react to magnetism.
