Is The Swiss Replica Watch Industry A Victim Of Its Own Marketing Success?

rolex-day-date-40-60-anniversary

When people buy a luxury Swiss replica watch, they are first buying a name and second buying a product. In fact, you might say the same thing about most luxury products in general. People are more interested in being part of a brand that they have been marketed to, versus acquiring the utility or craftsmanship of a particular item they will appreciate. Of course, there are occasionally buyers who are more (though not completely) immune to marketing, and who tend to focus on particular elements of a brand that they subjectively appreciate. With that said, while they may not be buying into a brand’s particular flavor of product marketing, there is often “quiet marketing” in the form of storytelling that they are attracted to within that brand (such as how they make products or the materials they use). In most instances, people aren’t buying luxury products for utility any longer – and that is something which is difficult to deny. It is also something the traditional watch industry knows very well.

The purpose of this discussion is to explain why I feel that the Swiss replica watches industry today needs to take a very hard and long look at their marketing practices. It might surprise you that I am advocating for them to market more – but to do so in a more intelligent and organized manner. This comes at a time when the high-end watch industry is doing very poorly. No, they aren’t hurting simply because of competition from smartwatches – but the advent of emerging technology certainly doesn’t help them. The luxury replica watch industry (mostly Swiss brands) is hurting due to stubborn reliance on archaic business practices in the form of sorely outdated distribution and pricing models. On top of that, the industry massively overproduces inventory – and the volume of unsold watches both in the market and being hoarded by brands is appallingly high. Some analysts contend that actually up to 50% of some watch brands’ claimed value is in the form of unsold inventory assets.

The luxury watch industry is where it is today because of marketing, and that is coming from someone who has traditionally been rather hard on marketing because I am always skeptical of techniques used to persuade consumers. There is just too much opportunity for unethical conduct – but I digress. I recall a few years ago seeing a chart of the top luxury replica watches marketing spenders in the United States and comparing it to another list I had of the top sellers in the US. Guess what: those lists were exactly the same. Early on in my reporting on the watch industry, I noticed a very strong correlation between marketing spending and success in the market. Why is this?

Luxury watch marketing is actually quite weak. For an industry that sells much of its goods to men, they have taken a few too many lessons from women’s fashion marketing. In fact, the only upside of how luxury replica watch brands market is in that they know consumers like to buy from “famous brands.” How does a brand become famous? Easy: populate the world with your name. The most success luxury watch makers have with marketing is name awareness. Rolex replica does happen to make a truly outstanding timepiece, but that isn’t why they are so successful these days. Rolex replica is successful because of wide awareness of the brand name. Rolex is smart about the fact that their consumers want other people to notice the name on the watch on their wrist, and because of this the brand continues to enjoy wide demand. Having a well-made product without wide awareness will only make you a cult hit at best. Luxury brands like fake Rolex who spend money on both marketing and product have it figured out.

Unfortunately, many other luxury replica watch brands don’t. When times are tough, most companies inevitably cut back on marketing and advertising spending. This might seem like a wise short-term solution, and it can be if the brand is going through some type of temporary change or reorganization and sales aren’t a priority. When sales are a priority and the strengths of a brand must be asserted in order to assist in sales success, that is when smart marketers must be put to work.

In addition to having deep-rooted systemic problems, the luxury watch industry also has an innovation problem. Marketing success during the 1990s and 2000s helped many brands earn a lot of money by placing status symbols on people’s wrists, and making toys for rich boys (adults). Watch design and internal componentry has been for the most part stale. Innovation has been in the form of some new materials, and a small amount of new technology, mainly at the most high-end side of the industry. For the most part, consumers were being asked to buy new products that did not fundamentally offer anything different from previous generation products. Brands relied on collectors and value speculators in enthusiast communities to help them sell product. The problem was that these same collectors and communities are quickly becoming disillusioned with high prices, poor marketing, and a culture of discounting which has led to boredom at best, and distrust at worst when concerning many of the brands that formerly relied on their spirited enthusiasm. Thus, adding insult to injury, the luxury replica watch industry not only has to deal with the fact that they need to make some very painful changes to how they price, distribute, and sell their watches, but they also have a serious image problem when it comes to many of their core clientele.

When I said that the Swiss replica watch industry is a victim of their own success what I meant was that they relied on marketing for so long that they failed in many ways to adapt their business models and products to modern times. Moreover, I say “Swiss watch industry” often and not only “luxury watch industry,” because the majority are Swiss brands. Nowadays when consumers are increasingly being offering alternatives to traditional mechanical replica watches (smartwatches) and when luxury watch marketing is mostly of a poor quality (enough so that the majority of it casts a relatively unflattering light on the industry as a whole), the Swiss watch industry needs to focus on making marketing a priority once again.

So what is wrong with luxury watch marketing today? Before talking about the overall reduction in intelligent marketing activity, I’ll remark on what is fundamentally wrong with luxury replica watch marketing. In short, it doesn’t explain very well why people should spend so much on their products. One of the fastest growing areas in the watch industry is small boutique brands with production coming out of China. Many of these brands use suppliers who produce parts for the big luxury brands. While the larger brands typically have a more polished product, these newer brands come to market with prices so much lower it begs the question to many consumers why there are so many brands charging so much more money. Not only does the watch industry desperately need to realign their pricing models with consumer expectations, but they need to be more aware of the competitive market. In fact, many of these brands have decent reasons why their products cost a lot, but they don’t explain that very well in their marketing materials.

Much of the blame goes to the conservative decision makers in Europe who are scared to death of sharing the wrong message with consumers. For all they claim about boldness and originality, much of that is absent in the vast majority of their marketing and advertising materials. It has gotten so bad that a large proportion of luxury watch marketing actually doesn’t say anything at all. Imagine just a picture of a product and brand name. That passes for an advertisement in the luxury replica watch world. They forget that consumers don’t have a built-in need for timepieces any longer. People still to a large degree need things like cars and clothing, so the companies making those products don’t need to tell consumers why to want them in the first place. The same is certainly not true in the luxury watch market. If the brands that produce luxury watches do not tell people why they might want them, then many people are never going to get the message.

In fact, only specialized members of the media such as myself are helping consumers to understand why a high-end timepiece is a desirable idea – and frankly, I’m not compensated nearly well enough to do that as best as I can. All humor aside, this is actually a serious issue. The luxury watch industry has pulled away so much marketing budget that the entire media industry dedicated to discussing it with consumers is dying out. The luxury replica watch industry currently still doesn’t seem to fully understand that a strong luxury watch media is good for business. In a vividly self-effacing move, the watch industry has allowed the slow painful death of many business entities whose sole mission was to get people excited about purchasing a luxury watch.

So, if watch marketing isn’t creating enough desire for people to buy luxury timepieces (look at the market), and if there aren’t enough strong media voices promoting it (trust me, I am one of very few people) then how are people receiving luxury watch industry marketing? The truth is that many people aren’t. The only growth area is social media media marketing which brands hope is the answer to their woes. Will it be?

Social media marketing will have some success, but it certainly isn’t cheap. Moreover, brands need to invest in quality creatives and advertising campaigns so that they do not continue to make the mistakes of the past. For example, if you are going to market to men, then it is a good idea to produce marketing that is meant to be appeal to men. Further, the luxury replica watch industry has long been a fan of “exclusive” experiences, products, and availability. How will that be preserved if they use mass marketing techniques to shotgun blast their marketing to audiences who mostly cannot afford their products (even if, technically speaking, prices should go down).

This isn’t an easy time for my industry – the watch industry – but not all hope is lost. At some point, the watch industry will appreciate my claim that a strong market for smartwatches will be a strong market for luxury watches. Why? Well in any situation where you have a large population of people using a particular type of product, there is by default interest in a high-end segment for well-to-do people to show off their status. Thus, if more people wear replica watches (many people currently wear no watch), the higher degree of attention on that product will lead people to luxury watches who can afford them.

More so, the appeal of luxury watches hasn’t been about strict utility for a long time. Luxury watches are items of artistic craftsmanship often with appealing historic connections. The stories inherent to their heritage and construction are what get people excited about them. Luxury replica watch brand marketers need only to connect with many consumers on the right level to trigger their interest in the products. I’ve seen it happen countless times in person, and all the watch industry needs to do is refocus its marketing creation efforts on high-quality messages that reach the right people. They also need to dedicate resources to market to those people. The fastest way for the luxury watch industry to increase its pain is to further stop marketing. Again, the luxury watch industry is a marketing-driven industry. So they better put some more effort into it.

The Indian beauty on the Swiss replica watches

The replica watch was purchased at an auction and is now in the Jaeger-LeCoultre museum

Her portrait has remained a mystery for almost 80 years. Could she be the royal who last ruled a small state that is today a part of India?

“We refer to the replica watch as ‘the Indian beauty’ because we haven’t been able to exactly identify the person represented on the enamel potrait,” Marc-André Strahm, antique watch expert at Swiss luxury replica watches brand Jaeger-LeCoultre, told topreplicaswatches.me.uk.

The headquarters and production facility of the 182-year-old watch company is located in the sleepy little Swiss town of Le Sentier in the Jura mountains. It is part of the famous Vallée de Joux, which is widely regarded as the birthplace of Swiss watchmaking. The imposing Jaeger-LeCoultre complex dominates the rural skyline. At first glance, there is no indication that the utilitarian buildings house an unsolved mystery with an Indian connection.

But hidden inside the bowels of the Jaeger-LeCoultre complex lies a museum that pays homage to some of its most exquisite timepieces from the past. All the ornate replica watches and clocks displayed in the museum are described in detail except one – the so-called “Indian beauty”, which dates back to 1936.

swissinfo’s interest in this watch was sparked by an idea for a story that would explore the links between Indian royalty and Swiss watchmaking. The so-called “Swiss period” that spanned from 1890 to 1947 was when Swiss timepieces dominated the Indian market.

They were more affordable than British replica watches but also offered rich clients the opportunity to showcase their status through ornate work such as fine engraving and enamel portraits – something that was much appreciated by Indian royalty. Many Indian maharajahs commissioned fancy pocket replica watches that boasted a combination of complicated watch movements and elaborate cases featuring jewels and self-portraits in enamel.

While researching Swiss timepieces commissioned by Indian royalty the Jaeger-LeCoultre Indian beauty replica watch cropped up. It stood out because it featured a portrait of an Indian noble woman – a rarity as most replica watches were adorned with portraits of maharajahs. This, plus the fact that the lady’s identity is still a mystery after almost 80 years, kicked off an investigation into her origins. But it would prove to be a hard puzzle to piece together.

Needle in a haystack

Purchased in 2004 by Jaeger-LeCoultre for a sum of US$77,526 (CHF77,391) at an auction, the identity of the woman on the back of the watch case still remains a mystery.

“The watch was bought in the 90s by a Lufthansa captain in Mumbai,” Stefan Muser of the Mannheim-based auction house Dr. Crott told topreplicaswatches.me.uk. “Unfortunately at that time we did not have much information about this particular Reverso.”

With not much to go on, the only course of action was to sift through hundreds of vintage photographs of the various Indian royal families from that period. Not an easy task considering there were over 500 Princely States in British-ruled India.

To add to the difficulty, there were several glamorous princesses and queens from the period to choose from. While previous generations of female royals were confined to the royal palace, this new breed of blue-blooded ladies travelled around Europe buying the finest jewellery and attending the most talked-about parties. A few notable examples were Princess Gayatri Devi of Jaipur, who was ranked among the ten most beautiful women by Vogue magazine, and Princess Sita Devi of Karputhla and Princess Sanyogita Bai Holkar of Indore, who were muses for famous photographers like Cecil Beaton and Man Ray.

Could one of these dazzling royals have served as an inspiration for the mysterious woman on the watch?

The last queen

The hunt finally led to the tiny state of Tripura in north-eastern India. Around a quarter the size of Switzerland, the state is home to the over 600-year-old Manikya dynasty of rulers. Even though Tripura became a British protectorate in 1809 under colonial rule, the Manikya maharajahs were still recognised as sovereign rulers.

However, Tripura ceased to be a kingdom soon after India gained independence from the British. Interestingly, the last royal to rule Tripura was a woman. The death of the maharajah of Tripura Bir Bikram Kishore Debbaraman in 1947 – he built Tripura’s only airport – meant that his son Bikram Kishore Debbaraman became the de-facto ruler overnight. However, since he was only 14 years old at the time, his mother Kanchan Prabha Devi took on the responsibility of ruling in his name as the Regent and ran state affairs from 1947 to 1949.

And she is the most likely candidate for the mystery woman whose portrait adorns the Jaeger-LeCoultre Indian beauty watch.

Kanchan Prabha Devi was the last royal to rule the kingdom of Tripura

Prabha Devi’s likeness to the portrait on the watch is remarkable, especially the pose, hairstyle and the zig-zag pattern of the saree she is wearing. It very likely that the artist painted the portrait using the same photograph, as is the practice even today.

Her grandson and current head of the royal house of Tripura, 38-year-old Pradyot Debbaraman, confirmed to topreplicaswatches.me.uk that the black and white photograph did indeed belong to Kanchan Prabha Devi.

“There is a very strong resemblance between the portrait on the watch and the photograph of my grandmother,” he told topreplicaswatches.me.uk.

However, he is not 100% certain they are the same and plans to contact relatives and search the family archives for more information.

Born in 1914, Kanchan Prabha Devi was the eldest daughter of the Maharajah of Panna and became the second wife of the Maharajah of Tripura on her 17th birthday. It was she who signed the merger of Tripura with the Indian union on October 15, 1949 that signaled the end of monarchy.

“It is my desire that, as early as conditions permit, steps will be taken to set up a constitution-making body representative of all sections of the people…,” Prabha Devi said in a proclamation on the administration of Tripura.

“She is a very important person in the context that Tripura was the only state in the north-east to willingly merge with India,” says Debbaraman.

As Regent she faced a serious test when India was partitioned after independence in 1947. The Hindu-dominated West Bengal province became a part of India while the Muslim-dominated East Bengal (later to become Bangladesh) joined the newly created country of Pakistan. Tripura faced a significant refugee influx of Hindus fleeing bordering East Bengal and the state risked being involved in a tug-of-war between India and Pakistan.

“A strong well-organised internal security force has to be build up, the finance of the state have to be rehabilitated, a scheme of road construction to provide internal communications as well as direct link with the Indian union has to be put into effect, supply of essential commodities of which there is an acute shortage have to be made available to the people, and the machinery of the government has to be general, tightened up,” she stated.

As the last ruler of Tripura, she did an admirable job in safely steering it through the perilous transition from independent kingdom to a part of the Indian union with a democratic government. She died in 1973.

Indian inspiration

The Indian beauty watch is a Reverso, one of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most popular replica watch models. In 1930, Swiss businessman César de Trey was visiting British-ruled India. At the end of a game of polo he was approached by a distraught player whose watch lens had broken during the course of the match. He entreated the Swiss visitor to come up with a watch that could withstand the rigours of polo. De Trey had recently become a distributor for his friend Jacques-David LeCoultre’s high-end Swiss watches.

The Swiss businessman outsourced the challenge to engineer Alfred Chauvot who came up with a solution one year later and filed a patent for “a watch able to slide in its cradle and swivel over completely”. They turned to Jacques-David LeCoultre to produce the aptly-named Reverso watch commercially.

Besides its obvious role in protecting the watch from damage, the flipping dial system of the Reverso also allows the case back to be personalised through engravings. This was a unique selling point at the time because the utilitarian wristwatches lacked the artistic flair of fancy pocket watches.

Montblanc Villeret 1858 Series Released

Not long ago (October 20), Richemont brand Montblanc Watches grand released a new series –1858 Collection, which is the first brand for the continuation of US resistance to China movement factory Haute Horlogerie tradition in 1858 created specially established two series, which can also be seen that, Montblanc watchmaking tradition of value for US resistance to China for brands pivotal position.

Since 2006, the US anti-China movement works since reverted Montblanc, Montblanc Replica Haute Horlogerie road to finally have a solid backing, but also greatly enhance Montblanc’s “Wild World” status. But a little surprising is that Montblanc had already US resistance to China for the heritage movement works watchmaking excellence and tradition, specially released Villeret series (interesting still, the original name for the Villeret 1858, later changed), why Also in a similar direction to go to set up a new series it? There are two Montblanc Replica Watch factory, one in Le Locle, one is located in the Jura valley town of Villeret US resistance to China movement factory (Note: after the movement plant since it has been renamed classified Montblanc Villeret movement factory, the paper temporarily China-US resistance movement works to call it). Both their respective division and mutual cooperation, Locke watch factory is mainly engaged in the watch and movement assembly, movement and parts production, testing and other watches, Villeret movement factory is mainly engaged in the development and production of advanced movement into a table, of course, Key Locke watch factory also developed the production of high complex movement, such as Montblanc Bags world watches, but the main force responsible for advanced research and development is still the movement Villeret movement factory, and this is Montblanc “Wild World” status rising lies. From this perspective, Fake Montblanc Watches US resistance to China set up a special heritage movement factory watchmaking tradition and precision technology series, is necessary.

As we all know, the US anti-China movement factory was established in 1858, but was renamed in 1929 Miverva middle has gone through many name changes. 1902, watch factory began to involve a table design and most of the key components of the production, in 1909 released first watch, so the US resistance to China actually is not a simple movement factory. And let US resistance to China fame, is published 1923 Chronology plant No.20 mechanical chronograph movement, this movement with a column-wheel chronograph structure, its performance has been greatly recognized, since the beginning of the famous watch factory far and wide, in 1936 it became the official timepiece of the Winter Olympics that year. After the historical trend, the US resistance movement favored China, including Fake Rolex Watches, Panerai, Patek Philippe, etc. are now well-known brands, as well as some of the now defunct brand. So, whenever mentioned US resistance to China, we think it will not help the chronograph movement, is not surprising.

Of course, the US anti-China movement is so popular, it is natural reason, purely from the perspective of the movement itself, there are two reasons: good structure, good process. Appear on the auction market from many US resistance to China chronograph movement equipped with antique Swiss Replica Watches, we can find a lot of sight. Structure layering US resistance to China’s full manual chronograph movement, plywood and putting other parts with rich lines, the entire movement is no monolithic block the movement of large splint beauty, in addition, the timing control, smooth and accurate Even today a lot of brands developed its own movement, whether aesthetic or structure, can not be compared. This is why, equipped with NOS US resistance to China chronograph movement watch, it will be so favorable, a good friend of antique table is one of the reasons for popular programs. And in the process, the US anti-China movement exquisite crafted these beautiful arc, the lathe was not able to do it once, and many go through the time-consuming manual sanding modified to achieve the desired curvature, This is why it is not just to be liked, and more important reason is to be respected and treasured.

China-US resistance movement in income Richemont bag, under Group each brand has a chance to fight for this fall’s factory, after some contention, eventually fell into the hands of Montblanc Watches UK, also proved this initiative The great success. Today, the US anti-China movement factory remains the original outstanding watchmaking tradition, only a few tables factory CNC machine tools stamping parts for the prototype, and then the most important step is still done by hand, for example, only by the gossamer machinery operational control to the correct size of 85%, and the remaining 15% by the manual processing, gossamer end of the curve by watchmaker done manually, so that it can be done machining details of the deal can not be done to achieve a high degree of quality and aesthetic balance . Each year, the Hot Sale Replica Watch production plant only a few hundred pieces, are masterpieces of master skills, so we have the opportunity to enjoy each one mechanical essence of US resistance to China again.

rolex-replica-watches-for-sale

As the opening said, the essence of watchmaking US resistance to China’s over 157 years, in fact, Villeret series have been perfect, it launched a new 1858 series, but also in what is embodied? In fact, Villeret series of focus, not that show the beauty of resistance to China’s sense of history, it is more emphasis on distinctive timepieces and outstanding mechanical achievement, and 1858 series, it is to reproduce the classical style, in addition to US heritage beyond resistance to China watchmaking skills, have focused on the design, is intended to give consumers more time meter experience the classic charm. 1815 launched a new series of four timepieces, all using 1930’s eye-catching design pilot tables, large Arabic numerals, snake dragonfly pointer, luminous coverage, modern and classic, perhaps this is its intention.

Find vintage Replica Rolex Datejust and pre-owned Rolex Date Just models

_img (7)As you might expect, the biggest comparison we need to make here is between this Datejust and its vintage
predecessors. It would be a mistake to think that the two Replica Watches are interchangeable, though they do share a lot
of traits. If you’re looking for an all-purpose watch that can take anything you can throw at it, I would shy away
from the more delicate vintage Datejusts, but if you want a dressier watch that captures that mid-century vibe, the
vintage DJ will serve you well. Price is a big factor here too – a standard 1960s or 1970s Datejust will set you
back about $2,000 to $4,000 depending on condition, bracelet, dial color, etc. More desirable models and rare
versions from the 1950s can fetch upwards of $20,000, with some even breaking the $50,000 mark, but we can set
those aside for now.

Staying in the family, there is the new Tudor Style. It comes in 4 sizes (28mm, 34mm, 38mm, and 41mm) in a variety
of dial colors, with all steel or two-tone construction, and on either a bracelet or a strap. The best analog here
would be the stainless steel Style on a matching bracelet in the 38mm size. You still have an incredibly robust
case, though in a slightly more modern style than the Datejust’s, and inside is an ETA 2892 movement, a solid
workhorse. At $2,300 in this configuration, the price is only about 1/3 that of the Datejust, making this a really
appealing alternative if you’re willing to make some compromises.

Caliber_3135Omega is another usual suspect worth looking to for an all-purpose Replica Watches that packs a lot of punch. The best
comparison is the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150 M Master Co-Axial. The looks are a little sportier than those of the
Datejust, especially with the broad-arrow hand and textured black dial, but the 38.5mm size is still restrained by
today’s standards and the bracelet a three-link with polished center links. Powering the Aqua Terra is caliber
8500, a truly technology-packed movement. It’s anti-magnetic (indicated by the “Master” designation), has a co-
axial escapement, is chronometer certified, has a 60-hour power reserve, and can even be seen through a transparent
caseback.

At $6,000, the Aqua Terra is nearly $2,000 less expensive than the Replica Rolex we have here, but only $600 less than the
36mm steel DJ without the white gold bezel, which makes this a more serious comparison than it might be otherwise.

Is the 36mm Datejust the least expensive time and date replica watches out there? No. Is it even the least expensive time and
date watch with a solidly built steel case, a sturdy bracelet to match, a technologically advanced movement inside,
and a beautiful, classic dial? No, it’s not that either. But it is a Replica Rolex Datejust. You’re buying into the history
and the future of one of the most iconic watches of all time, and there is something to be said for that. If you
really want the Datejust, there is probably no other watch that will tick all the boxes for you.

TAG Heuer, Google and Intel have the SmartWatch perfect November 9

475051157_thl

TAG Heuer, Google and Intel are working together from the beginning of year on a Swiss replica watch intelligent, to be presented officially on November 9. The big question is if this trio will be able to collaborate and ultimately produce a clock smart enough to beat off competition from Apple Watch.

The news was made official in a press conference organized on the occasion of Baselworld 2015, the World Watch and Jewellery Show. The following quote is from Jean-Claude Biver, chairman of the division clock LVMH Group and CEO of Replica TAG Heuer: “The Swiss rologiera and Silicon Valley are a combination of technological innovation.”

It will be interesting to see what a collaboration between TAG Heuer, Google and Intel will bring to market. To date, the smart watches as product category have not been very successful, in particular because it is not clear why they are necessary when you need to be connected to a smartphone for work, but also because manufacturers smartwatch no sense fashion.

Meanwhile, the Swiss manufacturer of luxury replica watches Tag Heuer has released the first teaser image of its upcoming Android Wear smartwatch.

In its announcement at Baselworld 2015, Jean-Claude Biver said that the announcement of the smartwatch in question was his “greatest ad ever made” in his 40 years of work in the field.

David Singleton, the head of development for Google Android Wear, added: “When I think of the clock, has always been a combination of beauty and utility. We’re going to do this with our partnership.”.

Newsletter Win a horological swiss replica watch

— It’s only just available in the shops but you already have the chance to win a Frédérique Constant Horological swiss replica watch in our October competition. Plus a look back on the launches from Replica Watches & Wonders, new collections, new buildings and the implications of zero-gravity testing.

Frédérique Constant were the first to announce and launch a swiss replica watch, which recently received a huge thumbs-up in a first test by our contributor Olivier Müller. Now you have the chance to win one in our latest monthly competition. As usual you just need to answer three questions on the brand.

Watch brands have very recently started to reap the rewards of plans made during the good years, inaugurating new factories with improved capacity. In the case of Rolex Replica Watches it was more a question of necessity, as the previous premises were increasingly unfit for their purpose, whereas for Hublot it is more about doubling its production capacity for in-house movements. It is also an opportunity for brands to embrace more innovative and environmentally friendly solutions for power generation (geothermal energy for Replica Rolex and solar panels for Hublot). I will offer a more detailed overview of the new buildings later this week. In the meantime, Olivier Müller takes a broader look at corporate social responsibility in the watch industry today.

Although two watch brands almost simultaneously announcing zero-gravity tests on their replica watches and movements is probably more coincidence than trend, the tests and their subjects reveal some interesting insights. There is some advanced research and exciting prospects behind them, in addition to giving young entrepreneurial CEOs the opportunity to float around briefly in weightlessness. I explain the tests and their implications in more detail tomorrow.

Watches & Wonders has brought us another fine autumnal harvest of fake watches, with a continuation of the recent trend to launch not just new watches, but entire collections. Within weeks we have seen the arrival of Louis Vuitton’s brand-new LV Fifty Five collection, and Bovet’s 19Thirty collection with no less than 18 different references. These two new collections are both positioned at the base of the pyramid. It’s a term that may come across as pejorative in the luxury replica watches industry, but it’s where the brunt of sales are made and it’s where mere mortals often find their entrance into the world of fine watchmaking. So all in all it’s good news for brands and customers alike.

Last but not least, we will review all the major launches from Watches & Wonders in more detail over the next couple of weeks and continue our GPHG round tables, sharing our thoughts this week on the Calendar and Chronograph categories.

Glare of the spotlight

The reality is that politicians, as public figures, can no longer ask for privacy. After all, no one asked them to be politicians and they cannot cherry-pick their choice of publicity. WELL, it was only a matter of time before this came out. Images of Malaysian politicians wearing luxury replica watches, as well as cheap ones as a comparison, have gone viral on social media. Those named have chosen to remain quiet except for Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who was clearly peeved.

He defended his purchase of three luxury swiss replica watches allegedly worth more than RM1mil in total, saying he was a corporate figure before becoming a politician. The Umno vice-president questioned the need for the Malaysian Crime Replica Watch Task Force (MyWatch) to monitor replica watches worn by politicians. Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Ahmad Maslan also quickly defended himself on Twitter although he wasn’t highlighted prominently in the expose, saying he has never owned a RM40,000 Rolex Submariner.

Even Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin were implicated in the fake watch issue. Social media has become both a boon and bane to politicians everywhere. From their choice of restaurants to how they shop and what they want to buy, politicians and their spouses have never been so openly scrutinised. It is no longer about the paparazzi or press. Anyone who has a smartphone is able to capture anyone else in a public place and post that image online.

The reality is that politicians, as public figures, can no longer ask for privacy. Public figures only have public lives. After all, no one asked them to be politicians and they cannot cherry-pick their choice of publicity. Politicians with expensive replica watches uk are now the talking point of the Malaysian public, but they are not the first to come under such scrutiny. Four years ago, Chinese officials wearing such high-end fake watches found themselves being watched. An official of ministerial rank earned only RM50,000 a year, so questions were raised on how certain officials could afford luxury brands like Replica Rolex, Piaget, Omega and Cartier Replica Watches, which probably cost more than half of their annual income.

Those caught in the expose by the Chinese Internet activist included China’s railways minister Sheng Guangzu. Among the reported glittering timepieces identified by an activist when he zoomed in for a closer look at Sheng’s wrist were a Rolex Replica Oyster Perpetual DateJust, a Piaget Replica Altiplano and an Omega Replica Constellation. Together, these three timepieces were worth a total of 400,000 yuan (RM237,000).

Ironically, Sheng took over the job after the previous railways minister Liu Zhijun was arrested and investigated for corruption, with reports in China’s official media alleging that he had taken up to RM500mil in bribes. Sheng lost his job after the ministry was dismantled. Nearer to home, Indonesia’s military commander was photographed wearing a watch from Richard Mille brand’s Filipe Massa collection, reportedly worth more than RM360,000.

Gen Moeldoko quickly refuted the accusation, saying the timepiece was actually a cheap Chinese fake worth only five million rupiah (RM1,400). To prove his point, he removed his replica watch and showed it to reporters who were covering his press conference, saying “this is a Chinese-made fake watch… how could such a watch be original?” while slamming the fake watch onto the floor. A Singapore website had also shown photos of Moeldoko wearing other luxury replica watches.

Moeldoko appeared unnecessarily defensive as he actually comes from a very wealthy family with numerous land assets. In fact, he had reported to the anti-graft commission last year that he had assets worth about 36 billion rupiah (RM10mil). Back to Malaysia. There must be something about replica watches, especially for male politicians. There could be a correlation between an expensive watch and the male ego but for sure, a replica watch can land many male politicians into trouble.

Well, it happened to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in that infamous sex video involving a man resembling the opposition politician. To refresh our memories, a mysterious video purportedly featuring Anwar surfaced in Kuala Lumpur in 2011, allegedly showing him having sex with a Chinese woman believed to be a prostitute. The trio of Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik, Datuk Shazryl Eskay and Datuk Shuib Lazim, who referred to themselves as “Datuk T”, showed the video to some members of the press, including this writer, at Carcosa Seri Negara.

The single luxurious fashion accessory that was mentioned was an Omega replica watch said to be worn by the man resembling Anwar on that day. One of the Datuk Ts was allegedly asked by the person in the video to pick up the replica watch, which the latter had accidentally left in the room. That Datuk T, who is actually Shazryl Eskay, claimed to have the replica watch in his possession before handing it to the police for further investigation.

Of course, Anwar was challenged to reproduce the infamous Omega replica watch but he denied that he was the man in the video. Anwar’s wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has insisted she has in her possession the expensive fake watch, which some said was a gift from a Saudi Arabian royal family burnished with a royal crest, but until now, no one has seen it. While Malaysians do not expect our politicians to live like paupers or lead a pretentious life of poverty, what most of us find hard to swallow is the flaunting of wealth. Such a blatant show of extravagance will certainly not go down well with most Malaysians struggling with their daily lives.

Malaysians already find it hard to understand why many of our politicians must go everywhere with an entourage – don’t these government officials or party leaders have work to do? If only they could emulate the likes of Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Mustapa Mohamed and Ministers in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Wahid Omar and Datuk Seri Idris Jala, who are all so simply down to earth. Travellers taking the ERL from KL Sentral to KLIA have often seen Mustapa travelling alone with no hangers-on.

The reality is that political leaders are being watched closely – not just them, but also their spouses and children. And it is not just about what they indulge in, but also their behaviour. Our leaders need to stay connected to ordinary Malaysians. They need to be sensitive so that they can understand fully how most of us cope on a daily basis.

Eric Clapton’s Rare Rolex Replica Cosmograph Daytona 6263 Oyster Albino

If you have ever wanted to own one of legendary guitar player Eric Clapton’s wristwatches, now’s your chance. Clapton is well-known in replica watch circles for his fabulous collection of rare Replica Rolex and Patek Philippe treasures. And while replica watches from his collection pop up at auction every now and then, they don’t come up often enough for a true fan of both great music and great horology to miss out on an opportunity. So if that fan is you, here’s your opportunity. Clapton’s exceedingly rare Rolex Reference 6263, the “Oyster Albino” Cosmograph Daytona, is part of the next Phillips auction, due to take place on May 10, 2015 in Geneva.

This particular Reference 6263 is one of only four known examples categorized as an Albino. If you know anything about vintage Replica Rolex, then you probably also know that the most sought-after examples – the ones that make collector hearts beat as fast as they can go – are those that have something unusual about them, something that not every Rolex can boast, something that makes them rarer than four-leaf clovers picked by a leprechaun at the end of a rainbow. In this case, it is the silvered dial with the same-color silvered chronograph totalizer subdials (hence the nickname “Albino”). This reference usually sports black chronograph totalizers with white printing.

This example is one of only four known examples of an “Albino” Reference 6263. It was manufactured in 1971 and is powered by manually wound Caliber 727 (which – in case you are a replica watch nerd like me and need to know this – is based on Valjoux Caliber 72). It is housed in a stainless steel case and comes on a stainless steel bracelet. I probably don’t need to tell you that just its rarity factor is enough to drive the price of this gem into the stratosphere. But there is one more element that makes it even more valuable: its provenance. And that provenance is that it was once owned by Slowhand himself (Clapton’s nickname for those that follow the blues rock music scene).

Clapton bought this fake watch in the late 1990s. It was auctioned at Sotheby’s New York sale of June 5, 2003, where it broke the previous world record for a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Replica by selling for $505,000 (five times its pre-auction estimate). Its pre-auction estimate for May is 500,000 to 1,000,000 Swiss francs. I am personally quite confident it will break the one million Swiss franc mark.

The swiss replica watch is, of course, being auctioned by the Phillips replica watch department. If you’re unfamiliar with this auction house in conjunction with this field, it would not necessarily be surprising as it is a relative newcomer to the world of highly collectible timepieces. In fact, its new-found attraction to them has kicked off with a partnership with the highly experienced Bacs & Russo team. Aurel Bacs and Livia Russo were most recently instrumental elements of Christie’s practical domination of the replica watches uk auction world. In fact, during their time at Christie’s watch department, it experienced growth from $8 million to $130 million.

Phillips’ May auctions taking place in Geneva on May 9 and 10 are the first events of the collaborative new team.
