High Quality Replica Patek Philippe Calatrava VS Vacheron Constantin

That is why I chose some similar models. Both have simple designs. I am going to get into details for these watches and see which one is better.Both the Patek Philippe Calatrava replica and the Vacheron Constantin kind of address to the same target audience.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica

You can find some of the best replica Patek Philippe watches and have nothing to say, apart from their design or you could find a better quality one and a lower grade one and make your choice easier. The same goes for the Vacheron Constantin replicas. I’ve always liked comparing different brands of luxury replica watches. When you compare the same brand, there aren’t that many differences you can find, apart from the quality of the replica. That is why lately I’ve been reviewing and comparing different brands. It can be a challenge to choose one. So, will the vote go towards Patek Philippe replica watches or the Vacheron ones?

Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica Review

Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica

I’ve really liked this replica and writing the fake Patek Philippe watches review for it. This watch features a simple white dial with a small date window located at 3 o’clock. The imitation stone markers are the details that make this watch have a unique look. They give it a classy and elegant feel, making this watch a perfect choice for elegant outfits.

This Patek Philippe Calatrava replica has a vintage and classy look. The weight and dimensions feel good and so does the leather strap. It’s the perfect detail when added next to the case and the dial.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica


The see-through back case shows the Japanese automatic movements. Since I bought my first Swiss watch, not a long time ago, I wish I got all my replicas with Swiss quality movements. There is a noticeable difference when it comes to the accuracy of these timekeeping instruments. Even is the seconds hand has a nice sweep and this watch is accurate, I would have preferred it as a Patek Philippe Calatrava replica Swiss. Even so, I am quite pleased with the quality of this watch. Its design is its most important asset.

Vacheron Constantin Replica Review

Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196g Replica

This Vacheron Constantin Ultra Fine 1955 wasn’t a timepiece I got for myself. It was a present for my uncle who’s not a fan of replica watches, but, even so, he really enjoyed it. If the Patek Philipe Calatrava watch had a simple design, this one is even more simple and that definitely is a plus. Even if I like more casual looking watches, I also appreciate a dress watch with a simple, elegant design.

This Vacheron Constantin replica is thin and sleek. The original one is even thinner with 1.9mm, but that’s not a noticeable difference. Since the original costs around 30k, I told myself, like I do every time, that a replica is a much wiser choice.

Patek Philippe Calatrava 3919 Replica

This timepiece has a clean, simple dial with just the logo, brand and city of origins on. The hands are rose gold plated, just like the case is. They are very thin to match the thinness of the case. The case looks amazing and the polishing is flawless. It has a brown leather bracelet with a nice glow to it. The buckle has the Vacheron Constantin logo on it. Overall, this watch has a great design and you can really see that a lot of attention to detail was given to it.

Regarding the movements, this is an automatic Japanese watch, just like the Patek, and there isn’t much difference between these two

The Fold

Both watches look amazing. Even though they have similar styles, they have different elements that could help you decide easier which one to go with. The Patek Philippe Calatrava replica has stones instead of numerals and that really adds some glam to the watch. On the other hand, the Vacheron is very sleek and the rose gold adds a nice touch to it. I would probably go with the Calatrava (that’s what I actually did), but I have to say that the Vacheron appeals to me as well. Which one would you chose?

Highlights Of The “Cooler than ice-cream” Replica Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 of Kristian

When I’m speaking to a collector and you glance down to see their replica watch proudly sports the scuffs and scratches of daily wear, it gently warms the soul. Not only do you know that the owner, more often than not, chooses that replica watch, but you know it has a story associated with it. As a replica watch geek, your mission is to try to extract those stories. In many cases, the owner generally does not require much persuasion to give you full brief. This couldn’t have been more true than when I sat down with our old friend Kristian Haagen to discuss his Nautilus 5726. A Genta classic and his current favourite replica watch. On a leather strap, the high quality and stylish replica Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 offers a different look to many Nautilus out there. This week Kristian proudly showed us his beaten up Nautilus, what he thinks of Ed Sheeran wearing his replica watch (well, one like it) and why he became so fond of it.

The Collectors Series - Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 Annual Calandar - Kristian Haagen - 8

When and where did you buy it Kristian? 

I bought it for my birthday in 2012. Actually wanted a different model, but when I came back from my “Let me think about it” walk, it was sold. So I went for the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 instead, acting perhaps a little hasty. Wasn’t all that crazy about it the first week or so.

What is it about a Nautilus that’s so special?

The sporty appeal and the great movement inside. Naturally, I am also a Gerald Genta fan and the whole aura around the Nautilus seduces me too.

The Collectors Series - Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 Annual Calandar - Kristian Haagen - 1

Apparently Ed Sheeran wears on? 

Yeah, my daughter actually asked if he wore the replica watch as me. She had me replica watch him perform during MTV Awards in order for me to see if it really was a 5726 on strap. (and it is, as we told you here).

What does it feel like on the wrist? 

I wear in on the calf strap and not only does it look great (I recently bought the brown strap) but it also wears very well.

The Collectors Series - Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 Annual Calandar - Kristian Haagen - 4 The Collectors Series - Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 Annual Calandar - Kristian Haagen - 3

What’s your favourite feature Kristian? 

I think the whole design works very very well. Even though I am a fan of uneven dials, the perfection of the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 dial really appeals to me. And annual calendar, AM/PM indicator and moon-phase are actually really useful.

What movement does it have and what have been your experiences with accuracy? 

The automatic calibre 324 offers a fantastic precision. I think it is the most precise replica watch I own.

The Collectors Series - Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 Annual Calandar - Kristian Haagen - 5

Would you describe it as a good all-rounder? 

Indeed, I would. Especially on the calf strap.

Do you wear it with care or do you tend to let it get beat up? 

I wear it. A lot. And it shows! I love a replica watch to show the signs of wear. It tells the story. Replica Watches are made to be worn right?

The Collectors Series - Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 Annual Calandar - Kristian Haagen - 7

What’s your experience been with servicing? 

I had it serviced within the first month of ownership. The date was stuck. Took three weeks for Patek Philippe to return it to me. So…pretty good experience I’d say. What 3 things would you say if someone wanted to know why they should by a Nautilus 5726? Versatile, perfect dial layout, rather useful.

Have you ever come across someone else wearing one in the wild? If so, what did you say to each other??

Nope, I’ve never seen anybody wearing it. Besides from that Ed guy…

The Collectors Series - Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 Annual Calandar - Kristian Haagen - 6

Is it a keeper?

Certainly is. I like better each time I wear it. Probably not as much as my blue dial 5980, but I still think this replica watch is cooler than ice-cream.

3 words to describe it? 

Cooler than ice-cream

Review The Classic Replica Patek Philippe 5960P

It is fair to say that this Collector’s Series entry falls firmly in the grail replica watch category… Mark Sinclair is a true Danish Gentleman. He is an avid replica watch collector, fundraiser and highly involved and respected law student (master program), soon to be a Lawyer. In his limited spare time, Mark hosts replica watch events in Copenhagen as well as teaching and mentoring criminal law students. It was a joy sitting down with him to find out how he first got into replica watches, what it was about Patek Philippe that attracted him and why he now wears a Patek Philippe 5960P (yes, the chronograph annual calendar in a quite rare edition) on his wrist.

Classic Patek Philippe replica watches are part of the ”Holy Trinity” of replica watchmakers (Patek Philippe, Audemars-Piguet and Vacheron-Constantin) and for good reasons. The Patek Philippe 5960P is a truly breath-taking replica watch and among the most sough-after references the manufacture produces. I am confident you will find this to be a passionate and detailed account, from a true replica watch-lover.

Patek Philippe 5960P Chronograph Annual Calendar

When did you first get into replica watches?

I got into replica watches in 2010, when I received a mechanical replica watch as a birthday present. It sparked a profound interest in mechanical replica watches, because I was fascinated by the idea of using a mechanical timepiece to tell me the time in a high-tech digital world. Most people in modern countries own a smartphone, which offers all sorts of practical functions, but you never get as attached to a smartphone as to a mechanical replica watch, or at least I do not. It is more personal and in some aspects more practical, because smartphones suffer from one major issue: battery life. What started as an ember has turned into a burning passion.

What drew you to Patek as a brand?

Once I got deeper into the world of replica watches, I came across the term the ”Big Three”, also known as the ”Holy Trinity” of replica watchmakers, which consists of Patek Philippe, Audemars-Piguet and Vacheron-Constantin. These manufactures are by many aficionados and experts considered to be the vanguards of replica watchmaking due to their craftsmanship, history and prestige, which is why I decided to give it a try after having done some research. The choice lay between the Patek Philippe Nautilus (ref. 5711/1A), the Audemars-Piguet Royal Oak (ref. 15202ST Jumbo) and the Vacheron-Constantin Overseas (ref. 47040/B01A), but the Nautilus got the deciding vote, because I was enthralled by its dial and the octagonal shape of the case – with its curved corners and two straight edges, which is reminiscent of the design of a ship’s porthole. However, I was also drawn to the idea of owning a timepiece, which carries some of the DNA from the late Gérald Genta, even though it does not have the monocoque case like the original Nautilus (ref. 3700/1A) from 1976. However, after glancing at the price tag (approx. 179.000 DKK / 24.000 Euros in March 2012), I did not buy one, but ended up purchasing another replica watch, which is still part of my collection this very day, but I was not entirely satisfied.

After having spent some time at the drawing board, I decided to give it another attempt and bought the Aquanaut (ref. 5167A/-001) instead, because I like how well the ”tropical” composite strap goes together with the black embossed dial. Once I had worn it and studied it as if it were a piece of art by the late M. C. Escher, my initial doubts turned into admiration for Patek Philippe as a brand, and my admiration has only become stronger as time has passed.

What attracted you to the 5960P rather than other references from the Patek?

It is an interesting story actually.

Before I got the 5960P-016 (black dial), I had just recently bought a Patek Philippe 5130P-020 (the World Timer), which also is an iconic timepiece from Patek containing the calibre 240 as base movement, which is one my favourite self-winding movements of all time. The Patek 5960P-016 was released in 2013, so at the time (winter 2012) when I bought the 5130P, I could only choose between the 5960P-001 (grey dial) and the 5960P-015 (blue dial) – both of which in fact still were produced together with the 5960P-016, until all of the 5960s manufactured in precious metals were replaced by ref. 5960/1A in 2014. A certain infamous magazine is therefore wrong when stating that the 5960P-016 replaced its siblings in platinum, cf. here and here.

Patek Philippe 5960P Chronograph Annual Calendar

However, I had ruled out the ref. 5960P-015 and 5960P-001, because I was not that fond of the contrasting colour chronograph chapter and the actuation of the chronograph pushers, which felt the same on the other versions in platinum and rose gold.

I was, though, still allured by the 5960, because it was a complicated and yet sporty replica watch with an almost symmetrical dial layout. It was during a museum and factory visit at Patek Philippe in 2013 that I decided to pull the trigger and get a 5960P – with a black opaline dial and matching matte black alligator strap. Once the longstanding rumour of ref. 5960 (all in precious metals) and Nautilus Chronograph 5980 (all in steel) being discontinued was confirmed – during a dinner with the directors of Patek Philippe – it struck me like lightning from a clear blue sky. I did not anticipate Patek Philippe to discontinue two otherwise commercially successful and desirable replica watches. I knew at that moment that I would regret not pulling the trigger, so I texted my replica watch dealer in a heartbeat to get hold of ref. 5960P-016 – and the rest is history.

Patek Philippe 5960P Chronograph Annual Calendar

In my opinion, they saved the best for last, because it has a monochromatic design, which adds a new dimension of elegance to this timepiece. In general, the 5960 is well-proportioned with its 40.5mm, excluding the crown according to Patek Philippe and 13.5mm thickness. The pump pushers for operating the chronograph are reminiscent of those seen on ref. 1463, which was their first water resistant chronograph. The case is superbly finished with a full mirror finish and concave bezel. Overall, it is a gorgeous timepiece, despite the off-set ”positioning” of the apertures for the day of the week and month.

Which kind of case material does it have?

It is made of platinum, which – according to some sources – is 30 times more rare than gold. The 5960 was also made in rose gold and even white gold too. The latter (ref. 5960G-010) was, however, part of a unique limited series of 100 pieces produced exclusively for Mercury of Russia to commemorate the opening of the Patek Philippe Boutique at Mercury.

Can you tell us more about the movement in the 5960P?


The 5960 is powered by cal. CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H, and it was launched back in 2006 in ref. 5960P-001, which featured their first ever self-winding chronograph developed and manufactured in-house. However, it also features an annual calendar via three apertures for date, day of the week and month at the upper half of the dial. Finally, it features a day/night indicator positioned within the monocounter at 6 o’clock along with a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock.

While the movement is complicated, it is neither too complicated as a perpetual calendar nor simple as a plain calendar. What is the difference? One might ask. The former will adjust for short and long months as well as 29 days of February once every leap year (every four years) and only needs to be adjusted in secular years (every 100 years), since February has 28 days during secular years, while the latter needs to be adjusted five times a year as it does not adjust for short and long months. A ”hybrid” between the two is the annual calendar as it distinguishes between short and long months and only needs to be adjusted once a year at the end of February – not five times a year. This mechanism is easier to assemble as it is less complicated than its perpetual counterparts and thus more affordable, even though the price of a ref. 5960P still was high (approx. 628.000 DKK / 84.000 Euros in June 2014).

Patek Philippe 5960P Chronograph Annual Calendar

The calibre is an integrated self-winding chronograph movement with a unidirectional central rotor crafted in 21k gold as it optimizes the kinetic yield. It relies on a sophisticated column-wheel construction for actuation. However, instead of a lever for a horizontal wheel clutch, it actuates the clamp of an almost wear-free vertical clutch, which is a reliable solution as the key components are not subjected to increased wear, thus allowing the chronograph seconds hand to be operated continuously with no adverse effects on the rate of accuracy of the movement and mechanism. If you are the type of person who prefers animation on the dial, as the 5960 does not have a small seconds hand, you can use the chronograph hand as a surrogate without qualms. Vertical-clutch coupling also has the advantage of reducing jitters on the chronograph hand when the chronograph is engaged, stopped and reset.

Patek Philippe 5960P Chronograph Annual Calendar

It features a flyback mechanism, also known as retour en vol, which allows the wearer to restart timing by only pressing the pusher at 4 o’clock. Finally, it boasts a power reserve between 45-55 hours depending on how long the chronograph is kept running. The movement is adorned with Patek Philippe’s exquisite finishing consisting of circular graining on the main plate, circular Geneva Stripping on the chamfered bridges and on the rotor, polished screw-heads and slots and the whole nine yards. It bears the Patek Philippe Seal (introduced in mid-2009) that encompasses the replica watch as a whole. It ensures the rate accuracy between -3 to +2 per 24-hour period for mechanical movements larger than 20mm in diameter.

I consider this to be an important calibre in Patek Philippe’s longstanding history of replica watchmaking, as it unites their first ever self-winding chronograph developed and manufactured in-house with the annual calendar, which in fact was patented by them back in 1996.

When buying, what is more important to you: Brand/model? Heritage? Aesthetic? Accuracy? Or Rarity?

My focus is primarily on aesthetics, complications and history, but I do take other factors into account when buying.

One of my favourite complications is the world timer that enables you with a single glance at the dial to tell the time of all major cities around the globe along with your local time as well. Another favourite is the chronograph (preferably without screw-down pushers), which enables you to keep track of a certain event – fast and even more convenient than a smartphone. How cool is that? Complications are fascinating because they enable the wearer to do various tasks mechanically.

A favourite is the chronograph, which enables to keep track of events – even more convenient than a smartphone Click To Tweet

History is another key component when buying. I place emphasis on history because it is interesting to know that a certain replica watch has a story to tell, even though produced in an era, where we fortunately do not have wars on a global scale and other types of misery. Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms has an interesting history because it is considered to be the father of modern dive replica watches, which has served the likes of Jacques-Yves Cousteau during the shooting of ”The World of Silence” and quite a few armies, including the US and French armies. According to some sources, it also featured the first unidirectional bezel. Officine Panerai replica watches have an interesting history because they served the Royal Italian Navy and were later acquired by the Richemont Group (then Vendome), which launched the brand on the international market. When I look at my Luminor (PAM 233), I cannot help thinking about its roots as a tool replica watch worn in combat by soldiers, which is enhanced by its design, especially the domed glass and movement (P.2002) – with an eight days power reserve inspired by the Angelus movement of the 1940s.

This is fascinating because new replica watches in some ways are capable of echoing the history of their roots, if carried out correctly of course.

Patek Philippe 5960P Chronograph Annual Calendar

Aesthetics are important, as a replica watch must be pleasing to look at. I prefer dials with a symmetrical layout since all of the indications are equally available at first glance, even though I do not consider a traditional dial with the date display placed at 3 o’clock to be a deal-breaker. Asymmetrical dials, if carried out correctly of course, can also be visually pleasing, e.g. Girard-Perregaux Annual Calendar and Equation of Time (ref. 49538) and Breguet Marine Chronograph (ref. 5827). When talking about aesthetics, I also focus on the level of the finish of the bracelet and the case of the replica watch. The way a bracelet and a case are finished is important in determining how elegant and prestigious a replica watch can be.

However, I place emphasis on other factors as well, so this list is not exhaustive.

How important is the case material to you?

It depends on the replica watch and the circumstances of its intended use. If we are talking about a complicated or simple replica watch intended for formal wear or other similar settings, I prefer precious metals, e.g. platinum, white gold and in some instances rose and yellow gold. If we are talking about a casual or sports replica watch, I prefer stainless steel or something lighter. However, if I am really interested in a certain replica watch, and it happens only to be offered in a specific material, then I am prone to make an exception and just go with it.

Patek Philippe 5960P Chronograph Annual Calendar

But I admit that I like the idea of owning timepieces made of various materials, especially precious metals due to their exotic nature, because this offers a new dimension to collecting. It is not about showing material wealth, as I prefer precious metals that are understated, among them platinum and white gold, but I am drawn by the history and rarity surrounding precious metals. Everything, from their delivery to our planet during the late heavy bombardment, which occurred about four billion years ago (according to some sources), to their use as a commodity today. My fascination is also due to the prosperities that precious metals have.

How much wrist time does it get?

Honestly, I have not worn the 5960P-016 since it has the potential of becoming a collectible due to its complications and short production run (a year or even less so). To top things off, rumour has it that there is an estimate of 50 examples produced, which I have on good authority. It seems plausible as its siblings in platinum, including the ref. 5961P-001, and rose gold were still in production until the spring of 2014.

It sounds odd as replica watches are intended to be worn, but once Alfredo Paramico pulled out a new old-stock Nautilus (ref. 3700/1A) with the original cork box and paperwork, including booklets and certificate of origin, in an episode of ‘‘Talking Replica Watches” on Hodinkee, I decided to keep the 5960P unworn. I am not into vintage replica watches in general, but I do admit that the time capsule condition of Paramico’s Nautilus mesmerized me. Inspired by one of the premier replica watch buyers and collectors on the globe, I decided to make it a safe queen. One must remember that I am just as much a replica watch collector as I am a replica watch lover, and sometimes I get more satisfied by knowing that I own a certain timepiece. If you are a replica watch collector, not all replica watches are worn and this is true in the case of the 5960P.

Do you tend to research the market before making a purchase?


I just do not go out and buy a replica watch for the sake of buying it – that does not appeal to me at all. Once a replica watch has caught my attention, I do thorough research and try to gather as much information as possible, either through other seasoned individuals or books and other reliable sources, because I wish to make a decision that I will not regret later. What complication(s) does this replica watch feature and is it better executed than its counterparts on the market? How is it perceived by other collectors and journalists? Why is this timepiece more interesting than its counterparts on the market? Does it fare well on the used market compared to the retail price? Will it fit into my collection in general? I could continue mentioning all sorts of examples, but I believe that you catch my grip. I consider it necessary to research the market before making a purchase, because it reduces the risk of making a wrong decision.

Do you listen to the advice of anyone before making a purchase?

Of course.

I take advice from my personal dealer and other collectors, even though the final decision is purely based on my opinion. Rome was not built in a day, which is why I am all ears if a reliable person is giving advice, despite the fact that I am more seasoned than I was five years ago. However, it is important to be critical or else you will end up like John Mayer in the case against Robert Maron. In my opinion, it is important to receive and accept advice from more seasoned and reliable individuals, as this reduces the risk of making mistakes.

Is the joy of wearing a replica watch more important to you than considering the resale value?  

If you place too much emphasis on the resale value of replica watches, you may consider finding another hobby Click To Tweet

If you place too much emphasis on the resale value and therefore deprive yourself from the joy of wearing a replica watch, you may consider finding another hobby. I am of course careful when approaching a doorframe or other potential risks, because I do care about the condition as a collector. I even admit that I would become dreary, if one of my timepieces accidentally was damaged, with replacement of original parts or something like that as a result. But I definitely get more joy from obtaining or wearing a replica watch than considering the resale value. Definitely.

What (if anything) have you got your eye on next?

There are still a few candidates out there on the market, but not as many actually as I thought since I do not aspire to amass a plethora of replica watches.

The Patek Philippe 5235G (Patek’s regulator) is among them, because I really like the symmetrical layout of the dial and its rather unusual appearance, at least when talking about Patek Philippe. It contains an interesting movement, of which some replica watch aficionados actually are unaware. While the classic cal. 240, which was created in 1977, beats at a rate of 21.600 semi-oscillations per hour, the frequency of the movement inside ref. 5235G (cal. 31-260 REG QA) has been increased by nearly 10% to 23.040 vph, equivalent to 3.2Hz, and at the same time, its power reserve has been increased to 60 hours – 25% higher than a ”regular” cal. 240. How cool is that? The size of the replica watch is also great and the dial is legible as well.

Nevertheless, I am also fascinated by ref. 5990/1A-001 (the new Nautilus Chronograph) due to the symmetrical layout of the dial and complications, as I have a soft spot for travel replica watches and chronographs. My interest in the Nautilus was reborn after having witnessed the attention to details that goes into making a Nautilus replica watch from scratch. However, it is also due to its history, as its forefather (ref. 3700/1A) violated a taboo back in the 1970s along with Audemars-Piguet Royal Oak and Vacheron-Constantin 222, since luxury replica watches were expected to be made of precious metals and as thin as possible.


If we step away from Patek Philippe for a little while, I would like to purchase another Rolex, as I own a Submariner (ref. 16613 ”Sultan”), which does not feature a ceramic bezel, solid bracelet etc. However, I am not certain about which Rolex it will be, since they have come up with some interesting timepieces in recent years. It is a battle between the GMT-Master II (ref. 116719 BLRO), the Daytona (ref. 116506 – platinum) and Submariner (ref. 116619 LB – white gold). All of them retain the characteristics of their iconic forefathers. However, I am inclined towards the GMT-Master II, because Rolex utilizes a special alloy that enables their white gold to retain its colour, and the GMT-Master (ref. 16710) was in fact the replica watch that sparked my interest for mechanical replica watches.

Finally, I have got my eyes set on the Duométre (ref. 6062520 or 6012521) from Jaeger LeCoultre and the IWC Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month (ref. IW 379201). The former features exquisite calibres that have been finished to high standards, while the latter is a horological juggernaut featuring a complicated movement housed in a case done in titanium-aluminide.

Can a collector ever be fully satisfied with his/her collection?

It depends on the person.

Now I am only speaking on my own behalf and I must admit that I enjoy collecting replica watches, but as my collection grew larger I became more satisfied as time went by, especially after purchasing the 5960P. I cannot see a point in gathering a plethora of replica watches and displaying them on Instagram or other social media as trophies – surrounded by bottles of champagne and other luxury items. Collecting replica watches is not about showing off material wealth or making other people green with envy.

Once I am done with collecting, I will focus on obtaining more knowledge about replica watches in general. It is more fulfilling, at least for me. Otherwise, you will end up with a bunch of replica watches that you most probably will forget exist in your collection. But I am prone to make an exception, if something truly special surfaces the market. When I started collecting replica watches, I got excited much more easily than I do now, as I have become more seasoned throughout the years. For instance, at this year’s the SIHH, I did not find the majority of the timepieces presented interesting due to the knowledge that I have acquired by reading all sorts of material as well as through speaking with other replica watch aficionados.

To sum things up, I will be satisfied with my collection, when I get hold of the above-mentioned timepieces.

Other than Patek, which brands do you think are doing interesting work out there?

Cartier has really taken things up a notch during recent years with a vast array of complicated replica watches, even though a handful of them are produced in limited quantities. But they are still doing one heck of a job. Everything from the ID2, however a concept replica watch, to their Rotonde de Cartier Astrocalendaire and the more affordable Rotonde de Cartier Day and Night. It has been interesting to follow their progress.

If I were to pick another one, it would be F.P. Journe where one of my favourites is the Chronomètre à Résonance, due to the calibre and the overall design of the replica watch. It utilizes two balance wheels, which are beating in resonance with one another – in order to keep track of time more accurately. How cool is that? I am baffled to say the least, because if one of the balance wheels goes out of sync, the other one will pull it back to the proper rate.


What advice would you give to someone considering starting a collection?

My best advice would be to do your research before pulling the trigger, or else you will end up regretting having bought a dozen replica watches. Try to sit down for a moment and set yourself a goal. Many collectors and replica watch aficionados have gained their experience and knowledge through trial and error. It takes a long time to really understand what makes a timepiece great. By gathering knowledge from either seasoned collectors or other reliable sources, you can reduce the risk of making mistakes. Once you have gained enough knowledge (relatively speaking), you may end up setting a new goal for yourself and thereby save time and resources, because you have found something that you are truly passionate about.

When collecting, do you think it is important to stick to a brand or a category (i.e. Patek, IWC / aviation, dive pieces)?

This is a good question, Justin. It depends on your interest. It is important to follow your own desires. You do not have to take an interest in design classics from the 1970s or military replica watches, if you are not interested in these types of replica watches. If you are into owning complicated or iconic timepieces, I urge you to follow your interest. It is admirable when a collector solely sticks to a certain brand or type of replica watch, but you cannot avoid depriving yourself from trying something else, which is why I prefer diversity within reason.

Once I started collecting replica watches, I created a mandatory rule, which is as follows: do not buy a replica watch, which is already represented in your collection. However, the rule is construed broadly, otherwise I would be limiting myself too much. If I already have a mechanical alarm in my collection or a chronograph with a central minutes hand, I do not need another one because it is redundant. If I already have an annual calendar or a calibre with a micro-rotor, I do not need another one because it is redundant. However, if the replica watch in question offers something more than an annual calendar, e.g. a regulator, which I do not currently own, then the rule does not apply in this case. It is as simple as that.

It is important for me to own a replica watch collection instead of a plethora of replica watches, because the latter does not have an apparent purpose, while the former shows that the owner has approached this matter seriously. I focus on keeping my collection on a relatively small scale – yet interesting at the same time.

To answer your question, Justin, I consider it important to keep focus or to stick to a set of rules when collecting. What this will be, however, depends on the individual.

Is this 5960P a keeper or can you see it leaving your collection one day?

I will never part with it, as it has too much sentimental value for me. I am still as excited about it as I was the first day I laid my hands upon it. I also use it to commemorate the year 2013, because I obtained my LL.B. the same year after going through a rough patch, but also due to the museum and factory visit to Patek Philippe. And finally, I saw Nickelback and Skillet perform live at Forum in Copenhagen on the very same day I took my final exam.

A special thank you to Mark for hiring a professional photographer, J. F. Sørensen, in order to bring you these superb photos.

Patek Philippe Replica

Replica patek philippe annual calendar chronograph ref 5905p hands on

The end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 was kind of loaded for Patek Philippe. The least we can say is that the manufacture came with lots of novelties. Back in October 2014, the brand was celebrating its 175th anniversary and they came with several superb replica watches, including the Multi-Scale Chronograph and the totally mind-blowing GrandMaster Chime. Thus, we could have expect Baselworld 2015 to be quiet. Wrong! Patek just surprised us with a properly unexpected replica watch, the Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time. However, they’re also coming back to basics, with a pure, clean but complicated replica watch, the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P.

A bit of history – the annual calendar by Patek Philippe

There are several types of calendars that can be added to a elegant replica watch. The first one is simple, as it only shows the date (that always displays 31 days per a month and that need to be corrected 5 times a year, for the months with 30 or 28 days). Then comes the complete / full calendar, that basically works the same but displays additionally the day of the week and the month (but that required the same corrections than a traditional date). On the very opposite of the range of calendars sits the masterpiece, one of the ultimate complication, the perpetual calendar. This module allows the replica watch to consider the month with 30 or 31 days, but also takes into account the month of February (with its 28 days) and the leap years (when February has 29 days). This type of replica watch only requires a corrections every 100 years (if continuously running of course) as during secular years (every 100 years), February has 28 days.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar 5035
The Patek Philippe ref. 5035, the first Annual Calendar created in 1996

In the middle there’s another type of calendar, an hybrid between the very simple date and the expensive and complicated perpetual calendar: the annual calendar. Almost 20 years ago, Patek Philippe, known to master the perpetual calendar like no one in the industry, came with a new idea, a calendar that will be (nearly) as practical as a QP but more secure, more simple, more reliable and mainly, more accessible. In 1996, they came with the patent of a calendar replica watch that required only one correction a year, at the transition from February to March, meaning that it was automatically recognizing 30- and 31-day months. This complication, first showed on the 18k yellow gold ref. 5035, is controlled by grooved wheels and pinions rather than rockers and levers (in a QP). This mechanism is simpler to assemble, required less parts, more reliable and protected and thus, it is more affordable. However, it remains a complicated replica watch that shows the date but also the day of the week and the month.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph 5960
The Patek Philippe 5960, the first Patek to associate an annual calendar with a chronograph and the first in-house self-winding chrono of Patek

This complication is since 2006 associated with a flyback chronograph with the introduction of an important replica watch, the Ref. 5960. This replica watch was the first self-winding chronograph entirely developed and manufactured in-house by Patek Philippe. Before this ref. 5960, the calendar linked to a chronograph by Patek was always a perpetual one (since the 1920s with the famous ref. 1518 to the actual ref. 5270).

The new Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P

The new Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P is the successor of the already famous but quite old ref. 5960, introduced in 2006. As said, this reference was an important replica watch for Patek Philippe, as it was both the first to associate an annual calendar to a chronograph but also the first replica watch from the manufacture showing the in-house self-winding chronograph movement. In short, Patek was not allowed to do any mistake when replacing this replica watch – that is also a commercially successful reference. For Baselworld 2015, what we have is basically an evolution of the concept that shows a cleaner, more elegant and more modern look – without losing its DNA.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P - 3

The changes are mainly focusing on the aesthetics. The new Reference 5905P is a mix of two replica watches: it utilizes clues from both its predecessor, the ref. 5960, and of another annual calendar, the no-chronograph edition, so-called the reference 5205. This mix is simple to guess from the new reference: 5905… What we have is a replica watch that shares the layout and functions of the 5960 (despite some differences) and the aesthetics of the 5205.

The predecessor was coming in many editions, starting from the classical gold or platinum, to the 2014 sporty edition 5960A, with a white dial, black indexes and hands and red accents, together with a stainless steel case and bracelet. It was featured with the 3-window annual calendar and a chronograph but also a power reserve on the top of the dial, a 12-hour and 60-minute counter at 6 and a day night indicator.

The 2015 edition is slightly different. First, it only comes (for the moment) in platinum. Then, it takes some design clues from the 5205, the edition of the 3-window annual calendar with moon phase and 24-hour sub-counter (and no chronograph), as it shares the same monochromatic sectorial dial and glaive hands. The 5960 was coming with a plain dial and leaf hands. Pushers are also different – now squares instead of classical round push buttons.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P - 9

The Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P thus comes with a 42mm case made of platinum. It shows a full mirror finish and comes with Patek’s classical concave bezel and lugs. It can be associated to a black or a deep blue dial, with matching alligator strap. Talking about the dial, this is the part of the replica watch that shows most differences with the previous edition. As the non-chronogaph edition 5205, it shows sectors separated by concentric circles – one around the minutes and seconds track and one around the hour track – in order to partitioned the functions. It is now coming with a monochromatic scheme, as the sub-dial at 6 is not coming in a contrasting colour like in the previous 5960.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P - 4

If you look closely to this dial, you’ll notice that it’s not only aesthetically simplified. It shows less functions than the 5960. Of course, the 3 windows on the top that are intelligently displaying the calendar indications – day of the week, date and month, for a very natural reading – are still in place but the power reserve indicator had been removed. Then, the sub-counter is simpler than before as it only shows a 60-minute counter instead of a 12-hour and 60-minute counter before. The legibility of the dial is increased and the overall look is cleaner and more modern. The usefulness of a power reserve on a self-winding replica watch is limited and the removal of this function brings a more balanced dial. Same goes for the chronograph counter that looks easier to read. However, a small regret concerning the inscriptions that could have been more delicate and smaller. Note that inside this counter sits a day/night indicatior, depicted by a small aperture that moves from white (during the day) to blue (during the night).

This changes means also a technical update of the movement. However, the base remains the same, meaning an integrated automatic chronograph movement, with a central rotor and a modern look and layout. When the Perpetual Calendar Chronograph 5270 comes with a (superb) manual movement, this one prefers to play on the practical side. The view though the caseback might not be the same, it remains quite an interesting and nice calibre. The chronograph function is actuated by a column-wheel with vertical clutch. It features a flyback mechanism (that allows to restart the chrono by only pressing the pusher at 4) and boasts up to 55 hours of power reserve. The Calibre CH 28-520 QA 24H comes with Patek’s traditional finishing, meaning polished bevelled angles, circular Geneva Stripes, polished screw-heads and slots and circular graining on the main plate. It is certified by the Patek Philippe Seal, that also controls the accuracy of the replica watch (average of -3/+2 seconds a day).

Compared to the previous edition – the ref. 5960 – the new Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P shows a cleaner and more elegant look. It is just simpler and this new monochromatic design suits better the concept of a dress chronograph. However, the increased diameter and height (42mm x 14mm for the new one compared to 40.5mm x 13.5mm) are questionable. If we were in front of a sports replica watch, that would have been understandable. If Patek had introduced other complications, that would have also been understandable. However, we’re in front of a replica watch that shows a cleaner dial and less complications than before. This just makes the case looks bulkier and heavier on the wrist, while the previous one was perfectly sized. The market might be demanding those bulky replica watches, it’s no reason for a brand like Patek to do so and to reduce the elegance of their replica watches.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P - 7

Of course, 42mm remains acceptable and the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5905P sits very well on the wrist. Of course, the case is superbly finished and the new dial more elegant. of course, on the overall, this is a superb, complicated but practical replica watch. Of course, it has the Patek quality. We would have just love a slimmer profile and bezel. No one is perfect, even Patek. Price: 78.200 USD.
