Did You Know That: A Tourbillon Is Not A Complication

In a successful attempt to cancel out as much of the influence of gravity on the precision of a pocket watch, Abraham-Louis invented the tourbillon. On June 26, 1801, he was granted a patent for it, yet the production for clients didn’t commence before 1805. Even after the patent expired, a pocket watch with a tourbillon remained rare, as it took exceptional skills to craft. In Replica Watches , the tourbillon was a late bloomer. Some brands, including Omega, experimented with tourbillon movements in prototypes, but it wasn’t until after the quartz crisis that this complication became truly popular and more commonly seen.

Many still think that the tourbillon is a complication. While it is most certainly complex to make, it is an addition to the escapement of the watch. As this is an essential piece of a mechanical watch, it doesn’t count as a complication. In this same light is also a remontoire, or the co-axial escapement invented by George Daniels, not a complication, while they do require considerable expertise to make.

This brings up the question of what is a complication?


The answer to that depends on who you are asking. A purist might say anything but the hour hand. Early clocks had only a single hand to tell the time. However, as we are talking here about wristwatches, the most widely accepted consensus on this matter is that any added function to a watch beyond the display of hours, minutes, and seconds counts as a complication. So even when a 60-seconds tourbillon doubles as a seconds hand, it still doesn’t make the cut.

Rolex today announced that it launches a program that will enable retailers that are part of the brand’s official distribution network to sell second-hand models that are certified as authentic. They will come with a new two-year international guarantee. According to Rolex, these timepieces benefit from the same high quality criteria as its new watches. The Rolex Certified Pre-Owned program will initially be available at Bucherer boutiques in six countries (Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France, Denmark and the UK) from the  Cheap Replica Watches of December 2022. Other official Rolex retailers who choose to be part of this program will be able to do so from spring 2023.

Rolex Certified Pre-Owned allows for the purchase of pre-owned watches that the brand itself has certified and guaranteed. The aim of this service is to bring added value to the existing supply of pre-owned watches, as Rolex advocates their durability and uncompromising quality standards. According to the brand, it “wishes to accompany the second life of its watches already circulating on the market, with a view to preserving, maintaining and guaranteeing what already exists.” In addition, “these certified-authentic second-hand watches offer customers a tangible and immediate opportunity to become part of the world of Rolex.”

In concrete terms, the Rolex Certified Pre-Owned program attests the authenticity of second-hand Rolex watches that are least three years old at their time of resale by an official retailer displaying the special Rolex Certified Pre-Owned plaque. It guarantees that these watches benefit from the quality criteria inherent to all Rolex products and from the savoir-faire of the brand’s worldwide network of experts.

The Breitling replica Certified Pre-Owned guarantee card, delivered at the time of the sale, officially confirms that the watch is genuine and guarantees its proper functioning. This card bears the words “Certified Pre-Owned” and serves as an official certificate of authenticity.



The Calypso

The Calypso is one of E.C.Andersson Watch Co’s most recognizable watch lines, attracting collectors with its sporty elegance. Following the original design’s lead, the Calypso II was released earlier this year as a follow-up, and sold out its first series shortly after. Priding themselves in creating only a few pieces of each model, E.C.Andersson is now unlocking the last sets of Calypso II’s on their web – ready to ship immediately, just in time for the holidays. And yes,  Breitling Replica Watches now features a brand new bracelet.

The Calypso II punches above its weight with its solid construction, screw-down crown, 120m water resistance, sapphire crystal, and very wearable 39mm diameter footprint. Not to mention the use of a Power Reserve indicator, which is cleverly placed between the 9 and 10 o’clock hour markers to preserve the dial’s symmetry. Most notable, however, is E.C.Andersson’s dedication to regulating each watch to achieve impressive precision, far exceeding industry standards in this price range.

Of course, a big addition to the Calypso II is the new steel bracelet that integrates with the watch head. The block-style design of the links and the sandblasted finish gives the watch an almost retro-futuristic vibe, and a trigger-released butterfly clasp hides neatly underneath for that unobstructed look.


Centering the timepiece is a vibrant blue dial that pops against the steel surroundings. It features a 3D textured “Enslinje” pattern: A collection of symbols used in coastal navigation, which suitably resembles hourglasses and serves as the inspiration for E.C.Andersson’s logotype. There’s a slight metallic shimmer to the dial surface which plays nicely with the light. Polished indices are applied on top of it and the wider cardinal markers 12, 3, 6, and 9 are filled with SuperLuminova and a framed date wheel is visible at 3’. The power reserve indicator is colored white to be easily distinguished from the indices.


The mixture of polished and sandblasted finishes, clear-cut lines, and a striking blue dial pins the Calypso II as s perfect daily wearer. You can easily see it go just as well with a shirt and tie as with tennis shorts and a t-shirt. And that’s the point,  best replica watches is designed to be durable and versatile: a do-all, go-anywhere wrist companion.
