Foundations for the Omega replica watches future

Despite a lackluster 2015, Omega replica watchmakers are continuing to invest in production facilities, with three recent events providing ample proof.

Manuf_pierre_1Over the past 10 years, numerous watchmaking brands have extended and sometimes even more than doubled the size of their production facilities: Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, IWC, Cartier, Piaget, Omega replica, Breguet, Vacheron Constantin, Chopard, Rolex and more. In short, all of these brands have invested massively in their production resources in order to meet the increased demand caused by the doubling of Swiss watch exports in the last decade.

Patek_nouveau_centre_production_1Patek Philippe replica, for example, recently began work on an extension estimated at 500 million Swiss francs. Based in Plan-les-Ouates since 1996, the Genevan family business laid the foundation stone of this extension on October 15. Scheduled for completion in 2018, the new building will offer a total surface area of approx. 110,000 m2—half of which will be devoted to production—spread over six floors and four basement levels. According to Patek Philippe President Thierry Stern, “this extensive project will ensure the long-term development and future of the company”—or for the next 20 to 30 years, at least. The interior layout is described as follows: creation of new testing and certification labs, areas for research projects carried out as part of the Patek Philippe Chair at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), the foundation of a new “Rare and Exceptional Handcrafts” entity, training rooms, and extra storage space. The brand’s intention, which produces roughly 58,000 watches per year, isn’t to beat production records, but to further its quest for flawless quality.

A big (bang) boom

Hublot’s ambition is somewhat different. The subsidiary of French group LVMH “intends to double the number of movements produced in its Manufactures in the next three to five years,” announced CEO Ricardo Guadalupe at the opening of its new building on September 29. “We will go from 10,000 to 20,000 units,” he added, stressing that “Hublot is experiencing excellent growth.” At the same inauguration ceremony, Jean-Claude Biver, President of the LVMH Watch Division, added: “Our customers buy one Hublot replica watches uk and then another. They become addicted. Soon, we will have to build another factory.”

Manuf_pierre_2By 2020, the brand hopes to verticalize its production facilities as far as possible thanks to this new building, which is separated from the first by the tracks of the Nyon-Saint-Cergue-La Cure rail link. Hublot is now selling more than 40,000 timepieces a year and, according to estimations published by Vontobel bank, recorded a turnover of 490 million francs in 2014.

In tune with the future

At Reuge, whose future production site will be operational in 2016, the time has come for consolidation. Founded in 1865 in Sainte-Croix, the brand originally produced pocket Omega replica watches fitted with musical movements. “This 150-year-old start-up,” as it was described by Executive President Kurt Kupper at its anniversary event, has pulled out of its economic slump by repositioning itself at the very top end of the market. The brand now wishes to strengthen its international presence and continue to innovate. The arrival of a new Saudi shareholder should help the company to achieve its new ambitions—and write another 150 years of history.

Dark materials: Rado Replica Watches updates the HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

Rado Replica watches uk reveals a new dark brown hue for the HyperChrome family

In terms of colour, the choices available for ceramic  watches remain fairly limited – although companies like Rado, Hublot replica watches, and of course Rolex are slowly adding to the spectrum. Black and white are relatively straightforward, but every new colour requires the addition of a different blend of metal oxides to the basic zirconium oxide. In recent years that has given us red, blue, grey and yellow ceramics.

Now, we can add brown to the ceramic colour palette. At this year’s Baselworld, Rado replica watches uk revealed its new HyperChrome models in a rich brown shade – a new look for the high-tech ceramic pieces that the company has been known for since 1986.

There are three models in dark brown, featuring the HyperChrome monobloc case: an automatic replica watches, a ladies automatic with diamonds and a chronograph. Despite the pictures (and press release) that would have you regard them as very chocolate-y in colour, in reality they’re closer to a dark grey lustre – which to many will make them a touch more wearable.

As the ceramic is heated in a specially Rolex replica watches uk developed kiln, the colours alter – but sintering is a very tricky process to get exactly right. Rado has a proven record of doing just that though: Baselworld also saw the company showcasing its plasma high-tech ceramic with a metallic look.

The HyperChrome Tachymeter Brown Ceramic Automatic Chronograph is picked out with rose gold-coloured accents – indices, sub-dials, pushers, crown and hands are all tinted PVD, as well as the flashes of rose gold down the sides of the case.

A teeny, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it date window sits between 4 and 5 o’clock – the overlapping sub-dials mean there’s a lot to fit in here. The tachymeter has actually been etched into the cheap Breitling replica polished ceramic bezel, and filled in with white LumiNova. The bracelet continues the combination of finishes on the dial with matte and polished ceramic links.

Inside is an ETA 2894-2 with 42-hour power reserve, a modular design that uses a traditional base with a self-contained chrono module. The HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph is priced at £3,650.
