The Story of the Franck Muller Replica Chronograph

The Franck Muller Replica Chronograph: What is it?

The idea to create a chronograph atPatek Phillipe resulted from a trip made by Antoine Norbertde Patek in 1854, the co-founder of the company. At the end of 19th century, the United States was a new market. Patek's voyage was crucial to increase awareness about the company. Patek sent numerous letters to Geneva, sharing his impressions about the country and timekeepers that were most popular. One of these letters mentioned that the Americans demand inexpensive watches that can still accurately determine the speed of their horses.

After Patek's observations, watchmakers at the manufacturer began work on Ref. 10 051, unveiled in 1856, was the result of Patek's observations. The handsome pocketwatch had three sub-dials at three o'clock, six o'clock, and nine o’clock. It also featured four divisions for the second hand of the jumping chronograph.Franck Muller Swiss Replica The pocket watch didn't yet have an automatic setting mechanism, so it was reset to zero using a separate key.

This first chronograph was the prototype for many others that would be made by the Franck Muller Replica Manufacture in the following two centuries. Its three subdial architecture, discrete line and white enamel dials, as well as its shaped bridges, have stood the test the test of time.

The American Connection

The American market continued to drive the chronograph over the next decades. The popularity of the chronograph grew even after Patek's death in 1870s. The chronograph was not the only thing that was popular, but also the desire to combine the chronograph function with other complications such as the perpetual calendar or the equation of time.bell & ross replica These grand complications were highly sought-after by America’s elite. This can be seen in the famous timekeepers that Henry Graves Jr. created for him and James Ward Packard, the founder of Packard Automobile Company.

From Pocket to Wrist

As people embraced the new style of wearing a watch, wristwatches became increasingly popular in the 1920s. The wrist-worn split seconds chronograph was also introduced in this period. This allowed the user to simultaneously time two events that start and end at the same moment.

The start button sets the chronograph and split-seconds hands in motion. The pusher is pressed once the first horse crosses the finish line. The time is recorded. The chronograph hand can be stopped by a second push. Both hands can be stopped at the end of the race and reset to zero.

A special commission was established in 1922 to design a split-seconds chronograph bracelet. The regular collection was then redesigned in a Officer's-style gold case.

The Ebauches Era

Franck Muller Replica's first chronographs were made using movements from outside partners. This was the most efficient method to produce chronographs in series production during the early 1900s.audemars piguet replica watches Franck Muller Replica created a simple chronograph in 1927 using a Victorin Piguet motion. In 1929, it began to use calibers from Raymond Freres, also known as the Valjoux Company. These movements powered some the most beautiful chronograph complications in the 1900s.
