Spring is the season for watch launches, and this year Watches & Wonders Geneva returned to an in-person watch fair after two years of virtual events, with the dominance of sports high quality replica watches showing no signs of slowing.
And there’s no better complement to the popular style than the chronograph, which functions as a stopwatch on the wrist.
The earliest known chronograph is attributed to French watchmaker Louis Moinet, whose 1816 Compteur de Tierces (thirds timer) surfaced in a 2012 Christie’s auction. Before, the chronograph origin story was linked to a “time-writing” device by Nicolas Rieussec dating to 1821. That machine, which was used to time horse races, employed rotating discs that were marked with dabs of ink as each horse crossed the finish line. Montblanc adapted the concept for 1:1 US fake watches in 2008 with the Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph, which remains in the collection.
Many of today’s chronos trace their roots to the mid-20th century heyday of sporty perfect replica watches designed for active pursuits like motorsports, while others break new technical ground for the 21st century. Here are five that caught our eye:
Replica Patek Philippe Ref. 5470P-001 1/10th Second Monopusher Chronograph Watches
2022 Patek Philippe fake watches’ technical skills are on display with the Ref. 5470P-001 1/10th Second Monopusher Chronograph (price upon request), its first wrist chrono capable of tenths-of-a-second short-time measurements with the new high-performance caliber CH 29-535 PS 1/10.
The manually wound monopusher movement houses two independent chronograph mechanisms with sweep hands. The gray central hand tracks running seconds on a scale of dots around the periphery of the dial in the usual way, completing a revolution every 60 seconds. Additionally, the red central hand circles the dial every 12 seconds, five times faster than a standard chronograph.
When the Patek Philippe chronograph copy watches for men is not operating, the dual chrono hands align to appear as a single hand, but with a press of the pusher at 2 o’clock they separate as they sprint around the dial at different speeds.
