SIHH 2017 – Top Replica Watches A. Lange & Söhne Lange 31 White Gold / Grey Dial

When you think power reserve, you thought that the 7-day IWC’s or the 8-day Panerai’s were already massively powerful – and obviously, they have more power than 99% of the mechanical watches produced. Well, if power is your thing and if you simply hate to wind a watch, you might have to consider the cheap A. Lange & Söhne Lange 31… and 31 here is nothing about the diameter of the watch, but it is about the length of the power reserve, in days. Yes, this watch can run for 31 days, coming from one single barrel, when fully wound. Impressive, right. This powerful watch comes in a new version for the SIHH 2017, in white gold with a grey dial.

The A. Lange & Söhne Lange 31, when introduced in 2007, was the wristwatch with the longest power reserve available, and the first watch to have 31-day / 744h energy stored in a single movement. If some others achieved to reach a 50-day / 1,200h power reserve (Hublot with their MP-05 LaFerrari) it was only because the movement stacked 11 mainspring barrels. In the case of the Lange 31, everything comes directly from one single barrel, with a two mainsprings that each measures no less than 185 centimeters (approximately the length of average Joe). These two springs are actually so long and so rigid that you couldn’t wind them classically, by rotating the crown. Thus, winding is done via the caseback, with a separate key that inserts in a square socket in a recess of the sapphire crystal back. Its technical features include an integrated backstop ratchet for smooth and easy winding as well as a torque limiter that prevents unintentional overwinding of the springs.

Still, as impressive a 744 hours / 31 days power reserve movement can be, if this comes from one single barrel, it will immediately create a huge issue, an issue that will drastically affect the precision of the watch. The two mainsprings that are featured in the Lange 31 are so strong that, when fully wound, they will deliver an enormous amount of torque to the movement, a torque that could simply damage the escapement. Yet, the torque will gradually decline toward the end of the power-reserve period – and that mean that the power sent to the escapement won’t be linear at all and that the amplitude of the balance will be greatly affected, meaning poor accuracy of the watch over the length of the power reserve. The solution found by cheap fake A. Lange & Söhne UK is constant-force escapement, which aims in smoothening the torque of the mainsprings over the length of the power reserve. A remontoire between the twin mainspring barrel and the going train delivers a constant amount of energy to the escapement every ten seconds, so consequently, the balance always oscillates with the same ideal amplitude (a same device can be found in the Lange TerraLuna).

For the SIHH 2017, this best replica A. Lange & Söhne Lange 31 (which was previously available in platinum with rhodium dial or in rose gold with silver dial) will now be offered in a limited run of 100 watches, in white gold with a grey dial and brown leather strap. The case still measures a large 45.9mm diameter and 15.9mm height, dimensions that are simply explained by the massive size of the barrel. Lots of power requires lots of space. Price: 142,300 Euro.

Hands On Replica A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Chronograph Boutique Edition

Not all chronographs are made equal. Then again, not all chronographs are made by A. Lange & Söhne replica watches. The German watchmaker is regarded as one of the best when it comes to making chronographs, as evidenced by the 1815 Chronograph, a watch so key to the brand it was named after the birth year of its founder, Mr. Ferdinand Adolph Lange.

Replica-A.-Lange-So--hne-1815-Chronograph-Boutique-Edition-Watch-1Two hundred years later, A. Lange & Söhne presented us with a new limited edition, available in boutiques only, and it brings back a much-loved feature of 20th-century chronographs: the pulsation scale.

Used by doctors to measure a patient’s heart rate, it later grew a cult-like following among collectors for its unique look. Vacheron Constantin brought this ‘vintage’ feature back in its own collection last year in the colorful Vacheron Constantin Harmony Chronograph.

Lange & Söhne, always keen to protect and advance the reputation of German manufacturing, has instead gone for a minimalistic but wholly effective design, defined by a monochromatic blue and silver dial, and a raised inner flange.

Presented inside a white gold case, its cold accents all seem to point to the cheap replica watch’s principal function: the flyback chronograph. Indeed, all of the indications echo the deep blued steel chronograph hand at the center of the dial, while the hour and minutes in rhodiumed gold almost seem to be playing second fiddle.

Replica-A.-Lange-So--hne-1815-Chronograph-Boutique-Edition-Watch-3Powering the 1815 Chronograph Boutique Edition is a modified version of Calibre L951.5, an iconic movement developed for it’s bigger, bolder brother, the Datograph. Gone are the large date and power reserve that made its reputation, making way to a thinner manually wound movement, and a thinner case that is perhaps a little more comfortable to wear on a daily basis.

However, no compromises were made to the finishing of the caliber. The hand decorations on the German silver plates and bridges, as well as the engravings on the balance cock are second to none, and offered on full display through a sapphire case-back.

Replica-A.-Lange-So--hne-1815-Chronograph-Boutique-Edition-Watch-4The Replica A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Chronograph is the brand’s entry-level chronograph, although the price of admission into one of Haute Horology’s most exclusive brands remains quite high at € 44,500. This limited edition will be available from select A. Lange & Söhne boutiques only, and is priced at € 49,000.
