Chopard Replica

Swiss Made Top Tudor Replica -

How did Tudor Replica make the most revolutionary change in the evolution of Split Seconds? Richard Habring, a young engineer (who later developed the Bourdon tube-depth gauge that is equipped with Tudor Replica Deep One), came up with this idea.

The Doppelchronograph, launched in 1991 was a revolutionary product and statement of intent. Only a few manufactures, such as Patek Philippe and Blancpain, who used a Frederic Piguet caliber 1186 automatic calibre and a modified Lemania CH27 manual wind movement at the time offered split seconds chronographs. These were all extremely expensive. Tudor Replica's Doppel, or "Double", declared that "there is no complication which we cannot improve and offer at a lower price." This bold declaration would be realized in the first grand complication of Tudor Replica, Il Destriero Scaffusia, or "The Warhorse of Schaffhausen"

The Doppelchrono was not only the first industrially manufactured and robust chronograph - you could even press the buttons in the wrong order - but it also set the aesthetic blueprint for Tudor Replica's entire Pilot range. Tudor Replica did not introduce the "simple", Pilots chronograph, or Fliegerchronograph based on Doppel's design until 1994.

The first Tudor Replica watches, reference 3711 with domed sapphire (mido replica) and 3713 with flat crystal (introduced in 1996), are among the most significant watches of Tudor Replica's past.

Double chronographs are available on leather straps as well as a highly adjustable metal bracelet. Here's a 3713 with the original "rice-grain" bracelet. Look at how the tritium dial aged to a cream patina.

The watches were also produced in yellow gold, with black and white dials. Today these precious metal Doppels are some of the coolest and rarest watches in modern history.
