On the very date of Philippe Stern’s 85th birthday, perfect replica Patek Philippe has announced a new touching tribute to the former head of the brand with a new, novel version of Stern’s favorite complication. Philippe Stern’s son – and current President of cheap fake Patek Philippe – Thierry Stern, commissioned the watch as a series of 30 to honor his father’s lifelong dedication to horology. The reference 1938P, named for Philippe Stern’s birth year, is a platinum minute repeater with an alarm and features a Grand Feu enamel portrait of Philippe Stern on the dial.
The movement is a bit of a time capsule looking back over the senior Stern’s legacy with Patek. Back in 1989, on the occasion of luxury replica Patek Philippe’s 150th anniversary, Philippe Stern announced the self-winding minute-repeater caliber “R 27”, the first movement of its kind designed and built entirely in-house in Patek’s workshops. Under Mr. Stern’s guidance, top super clone Patek Philippe slowly expanded its range of minute repeaters – his favorite grand complication – to become the largest collection in production across the industry.
Then, in 2014, AAA quality replica Patek Philippe unveiled the Grandmaster Chime Reference 5175 for the manufacture’s 175th anniversary, the most complicated Patek Philippe wristwatch, equipped with the manually wound caliber 300 “GS AL 36-750 QIS FUS IRM”. That watch combined five acoustic functions, including an alarm chiming the time.
Today, Patek Philippe super clone for sale has combined these two achievements with the new 1938P movement, the new caliber “R AL 27 PS.” The movement is built off the base of the “R 27” and combines a minute repeater and alarm exclusively for the first time. The movement is self-winding (though it can be wound manually with the crown in the first position) with 48 hours of power reserve. The chiming function features two gongs that will chime out either the time during the activation of the minute repeater or if the alarm is active.
The Swiss movement replica Patek Philippe required four new patents and 227 additional parts, including a lever and column wheel to select the chiming mode and a fusee device with a strike-work detent mechanism that temporarily disconnects the power source (the strike-work barrel drum) from the striking mechanism. Those four patents cover the following: Safely switching between chiming modes (alarm on or off as set by a pusher on the crown); delaying the alarm strike until the right moment; ensuring, in every case, the correct strike sequence of “hours, quarters, and minutes.”
The Breguet-style center alarm (with Breguet-style rose gold hand) has its own fascinating function. The alarm is set with the crown pulled out to the middle position, where the hand will point to a time on the dial as if it’s a 12-hour indicator and will only set in 15-minute increments, pointing to a scale in powdered rose gold on the edge of the dial. To allow the maximum number of chimes to be heard, the alarm of high quality fake Patek Philippe Reference 1938P-001 always strikes two minutes before the programmed time so that the wearer will get the full effect of the chime of the repeater instead of just the shorter gong sequence for only hours.
The Swiss made replica Patek Philipe‘s platinum case measures 41mm thick with a total height of 14.2mm and a 49.4mm lug-to-lug. The Grand Feu black enamel dial has a portrait of Philippe Stern and Breguet numerals and hands in white gold (with the aforementioned rose-gold alarm hand). It’s also an officer’s-style case, which swings out to reveal both the movement and an engraving on the inside of the caseback: À mon père, 85 ans de passion horlogère. “To my father, 85 years of watchmaking passion.” For these 30 special pieces, the price is, of course, on request.
