Especially in watchmaking, details make a difference. The best Zenith replica is a brand that has always had a great understanding of this, which they also underscore with the new Chronomaster Revival Liberty. This watch is exclusive to the North American market, and Zenith fake will only make 150 pieces of them.
The Chronomaster Revival Liberty is a direct descendant of the A384 from 1969. With this watch, Zenith wrote watchmaking history as they launched the first automatic chronograph running at 5Hz, making it capable of measuring elapsed time with 1/10th of a second. When they brought back this iconic 37 mm replica Zenith Chronomaster Revival Liberty watch, they made sure that it’s charismatic tonneau case, with an angular design, was an exact replica of the original from 1969. This was a smart move because not only does this case has a lot of charisma, with its diameter of 37mm, is it also very well proportioned. With limited editions, it is always the question of what more they bring to the table than the regular collection models, and with the Chronomaster Revival Liberty, that is plenty. As a direct descendent of the original A384 is also the Chronomaster Revival Liberty fitted with an El Primero movement. This automatic caliber has a power reserve of 50-hours and runs at 5Hz, or 36,000 VpH.
While it has the same movement as its non-limited siblings, does it make especially an impression with its visual treats. The dial has a slight fume effect to it, being light blue in the center and dark blue at the tachymeter scale. This goes exceptionally well with the white subdials. An extra dash of color is provided by the red colored date and red-and-white chronograph seconds hand. They might be mere details, but they give the Chronomaster Revival Liberty visually a powerful impact. The strap provides the true finishing touch as it is made from textile with a ‘cordura effect’ and red stitching as a visual reference to the date and chronograph seconds hand, while a rubber lining ensures optimum wearing comfort. The Zenith Chronomaster copy watch with steel case is priced at US$ 8’700 and available for sale exclusively in North America, including on the U.S. digital boutique.
Because 2019 is the 50th anniversary of El Primero movements, Zenith has promoted some unique watches for commemoration. Recently, the innovative replica Zenith Chronomaster El Primero 3600 watches have made progress in the movements.
On the basis of the original movement, the Calibre El Primeri 3600 is improved for the perfect Zenith fake watches. Compared to the original movement with 50 hours’ power reserve, the new movement can have the power reserve of 60 hours, and it can offer the tenth of a second, which is more accurate.
To become the advanced timepieces, the remarkable knock-off watches are made of titanium material, and the bezels are distinctive with black ceramic or blue ceramic, which are coordinated with the leather straps in the relevant color.
Unique with skeleton dials, the high-tech copy watches maintain the classic sub-dials in three colors, and the date is located at 6 o’clock, whose running is visible.
Today, Zenith announces the brand new Zenith Defy Lab collection replica watches that contains what they claim is the world’s most accurate mechanical movement. The in-house made caliber ZO 342 automatic operates at 15Hz, which is faster (a good thing) than the vast majority of mechanical watches out there, including Zenith’s legendary 5Hz “high beat” frequency El Primero automatic chronograph movement. This is a bold new step not only for Zenith, but also for the entire watch industry as it further legitimizes a controversial but ultimately wise creative direction. Zenith will debut the Defy Lab as a very limited set of 10 “piece unique” watches – at comparably “exclusive” prices. What about everyone else who will want one of these very compelling timepieces? Zenith makes it clear that the initial 10 Defy Lab watches are “only the beginning.” The Defy Lab’s movement will not only be put into regular production, but it will serve as a base for future complications. The first set of Defy Lab watches after this initial debut collector’s set is planned for production in 2018.
The discussion about mechanical wristwatch accuracy can be long and is way outside the scope of us introducing the Zenith Defy Lab. Suffice it to say that Zenith’s claimed accuracy of 0.3 seconds per day for the caliber ZO 342 movement in this first model is going to cause a lot of people to do a double take because of how impressive it is (for a mechanical watch). Note that for production models down the road (when there is less opportunity to spend so much time choosing the right parts), accuracy will be guaranteed to +/- 0.5 seconds a day… with no loss in rate results as the torque of the mainspring winds down. In other words, the rate results are a flat horizontal line, which is something that silicon technology has made much more readily available in mechanical time measuring tools.
I want to also mention that it is a huge deal that Zenith limited edition fake watches even went so far as to make a claim about accuracy performance in their press release. I’ve read over a thousand wristwatch press releases and aside from Seiko (who routinely under-reports their wristwatches’ accuracy performance – for reasons again outside the scope of the conversation), Zenith is among a very small number of brands who actually make a specific claim about accuracy performance in their documentation. For Zenith and LVMH it is about increasing transparency according to Jean-Claude Biver (who is the head of watchmaking at the group).
By Zenith men’s fake watches indicating the average accuracy (performance varies under different wearing conditions) of the Defy Lab’s movement, they more or less put other brands at notice that if they want to boast about a watch “designed for high accuracy,” they actually need go the distance and make a specific claim about accuracy. This is a good time to discuss mechanisms like a tourbillon and how watch makers typically deal with such features. While a tourbillon was originally designed to increase the accuracy of a mechanical watch or clock movement, it doesn’t actually do that in many real world wristwatch applications. Thus, watch brands often rode a thin line by not actually commenting on a watch’s performance, while trying to bolster the story about what the mechanism was originally designed for. I have to applaud Jean-Claude Biver along with Zenith’s management and communication teams for going the distance and not only promoting an accurate watch, but actually telling people the type of performance that they can expect.
