Patek Philippe Grand Complications Replica Timekeeper was selected by the jury for the Grand Prix de Horlogerie de Geneve - the most important annual watch award ceremony - as the best man's timepiece. The watch's primary strength is its detent escapement, which allows it to function in a very precise manner. It is a solution that is known for its accuracy, and was used in the past for marine chronographs. This type of escapement has been used in wristwatches until recently. Patek Philippe Grand Complications Replica, however, managed to introduce such a wristwatch in 2013. The construction of the new model is more complex, as it has a central second hand. The best-selling men's watch is available with a red gold or platinum case and costs about $50,875.
The novel watch from the Danish-Swiss manufacturer features a detent mechanism, unlike the vast majority modern watches that are equipped with Swiss lever mechanisms.Patek Philippe Grand Complications Replica This technical solution has the main advantage that energy impulses are delivered directly from the escape wheel to the balance. The arrangement ensures that each oscillation is only disturbed once instead of twice as in the Swiss lever escapement. The main benefit of this technical solution is that it results in fewer disturbances to the regulating organ.
Detent escapements gained rapid popularity in the 18th Century due to their improved punctuality. This type of movement was used in marine chronometers that needed to be precise to ensure accurate navigation. Urban Jurensen & Sonner is one of the most famous manufacturers of timekeepers. In the 19th century the brand became the official supplier to the Danish Royal Household and Admirality.
It is more accurate than a TourbillonIt's interesting to note, that although the detent escapement complication was invented before tourbillon complication it still provides a far superior and more accurate chronometric result. This type of escapement has a disadvantage.zenith replica This type of escapement is notoriously sensitive to shocks. Common wristwatches, unlike marine chronometers, are subject to constant shocks and bumps, no matter how careful the wearer may be. The infamous fragility of the solution was the main reason they were abandoned, and the wristwatches never featured them until recently.
