Patek Philippe Grand Complications Replica - The Tropical Bird Repeater

Patek Philippe Grand Complications Replica

There were two kinds of watchmakers in the 18th century. Watchmakers were interested in precision timekeeping and were pushing the watchmaking industry to achieve it. While this is still very important, Pierre Patek Philippe Grand Complications Replica was a watchmaker who wanted something more. Pierre Jaquet Jaquet-Droz was inspired and influenced by nature. He had a passion for birds and clouds. This spirit was channeled through his automaton creations, which are very similar to what we do today. We decided to create a wrist-worn automaton in 2012. It was the first Repeater, and it was a huge success. It's amazing to see how much demand there is for these watches. This is what I call "The Art of the Astonishment". This is a feeling that you feel as if it were your child. You discover something new. It's like saying "Wow!"

The Bird Repeater 2012

It is easy to want and have the things you desire like a child. As adults, we tend not to think about our families and finances. This keeps us from being able to feel pure emotions. Antoine de Saint-Exupery once said that all grown-ups were once kids, but few remember it. However, Mr. Hayek Sr. used the phrase, "Keep the fantasy from your childhood."

He was right. To have an imagination like a child, we must stay the same. This spirit inspired us to create the Tropical Bird Repeater. We wanted to create a watch that features a totally new automaton. This is something completely different than what is currently available in the watchmaking business. It is a true piece of art.Breitling Chronomat Replica It contains seven animations. The waterfall moves slowly in the background, three little dragonflies, the peacock opens and closes its colourful feathers; palm leaves expose a toucan with moving beak; and the hummingbird which inches towards the birds of paradise and beats its wings at 40 times per second. You almost can't even see the wings move.

Tropical Bird Repeater

As a real hummingbird.

Yes, exactly. A real hummingbird moves at 80 miles per hour! It can move at speeds we cannot reach, but it's much faster than us. Nature is nature, after all.

Please tell me more about the evolution of the wings of the hummingbird.

The wings are made from a complication that occurs with a particular regulator that moves by itself.Patek Philippe Replica It's very similar to the regulator you use for the minute repeater. However, the one we use here is completely silent. To be honest, the wings are the only element that is not made of gold, as they were required to be light. All the rest were hand-engraved with gold and hand painted.

Is the sequence long?

It's 12 seconds. Because it is based on the Bird Repeater,Patek Philippe Grand Complications Replica the time required to develop this watch was three years. It takes one month for the case to be engraved and three months to make the dial with the help of three miniature artists. All components are made of gold and are hand-engraved.

We've used the same techniques as the Loving Butterfly Automaton to introduce suspending components into the Tropical Bird Repeater. You will quickly notice that some fixed elements, such as the birds and trees, create a three-dimensional effect.
