What could be a better tribute to the man who has been at the head of perfect replica Patek Philippe from 1993 to 2009, a manufacture specialized since its inception in chiming watches, than a minute repeater…? Well, a watch combining another favourite of the brand, an alarm function. Dubbed the reference 1938P, as a tribute to Philippe Stern’s year of birth, this new and exclusive Swiss made fake Patek Philippe UK naturally features a minute repeater – his favourite complication – as well as an alarm chiming the programmed time. This complex mechanism was one of the five acoustic functions and one of the two patented world firsts unveiled in 2014 for the manufacture’s 175th anniversary on the top quality fake Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Reference 5175, a watch now in the regular collection under the reference 6300. It now finds its way in a simpler (sort of) watch.
The Minute Repeater Alarm 1938P is a familiar 1:1 replica Patek Philippe design, with all the classism we’ve come to expect in its grand complication collection. As such, the 41mm platinum case (with the classic diamond between the lugs at 6 o’clock) is reminiscent of converted pocket replica watches online uk with straight lugs adorned with screwed-in strap bars. However, what truly matters on this dial, and that is somehow explicit when looking at the crown, is that something special hides on the back. The cheap super clone Patek Philippe 1938P features an officer-style back, as the rear sapphire is protected by a hinged dust cover bearing the hand-engraved inscription “A mon père, 85 ans de passion horlogère” (To my father, 85 years of watchmaking passion). Platinum has been chosen as the most noble of metals, but also because it represents the greatest acoustic challenge for a minute repeater when the aim is to obtain the beautiful sound you expect from a Patek Philippe replica for sale UK – platinum is dense and isn’t known to produce the best of sounds.
The dial of this AAA quality fake Patek Philippe Minute Repeater Alarm 1938P is maybe the most polarizing aspect of this watch. Again, it is as classic as possible (save for one element…) with an 18k gold base covered in Grand Feu black enamel. Applied Breguet numerals and hands in white gold indicate the hours and minutes, while rose gold is used for the 12-hour alarm hand. The left side of the dial is decorated with a portrait of Philippe Stern in Grand Feu white and grey miniature painting on enamel.
Under the hinged back is the Calibre R AL 27 PS, a movement that feels familiar as it shares its base architecture with other automatic minute repeaters of the brand, including the use of a micro-rotor. However, multiple evolutions are to be noted, including 4 new patents. In addition to the minute repeater function, actuated by a trigger on the left side of the case, the challenge was to create a Swiss movement replica Patek Philippe in which the minute repeater and the alarm chime on the same two classic gongs while retaining the system of a slide piece set into the left flank of the case. This required that upon actuation of the slide, the movement be capable either of instantly striking the time displayed on the dial (in minute repeater mode) or of putting the strike on hold until the time displayed corresponds to the programmed time (in alarm mode).
