The Golden Chip Awards

 is always a distinctive moment. The Swiss Watches Sales brand's creations are special each for their design and their specialized written content.

A couple of months in the past we presented you the final and maybe most complex chronometer with the assortment, the Chronometre Ideal, which represents the essence of François-Paul Journe's get the job done. As well as in the Souveraine assortment, which means the manually wound chronometer rated replica watches, there may be one particular that stands out from the group, a chronograph that is certainly meant to measure speed up to 36.000 km/h and that features a rather unconventional exhibit. We've been testing the Centigraphe Souverain (that we have already enjoyed here), in a very incredibly specific edition only designed for your F.P. Journe boutiques, in red gold with a black dial.

The Centigraphe is admittedly an strange chronograph because of its format. In addition to the classical hour and minute's indication in the centre, the chronograph operate is separated into three sub-dials. The first one particular about the top still left implies the 100th of the 2nd; the next one over the prime correct indicates a twenty seconds time scale; plus the very last one about the base of your dial is graduated for ten minutes. Each and every of them features a time scale in crimson as well as a tachometer scale in black. The tachometer scales convert time units for one km into speeds from six km/h to 36.000 km/h.
Technological interludeYou may ask yourself, as we did just before managing the view, the way it is possible to evaluate a speed of 36.000 km/h or an inside of 1/100th of a second with a classical 3Hz check out (which means the second hand is relocating 6 moments for every second). In actual fact it's unachievable other than if you can halt the hand at any supplied second, also between these six ticks per 2nd. The 1/100th of a second hand that sits in the top Swiss Watches Sales still left sub-dial is really a foudroyante that runs all-around the dial in a single next. Inside the words of F.P. Journe the Omeag replica ingenious element in the 100th of the next is it may be stopped anyplace along its one-second journey all-around its dial, even in between two 100th-second divisions, enabling a fractional studying. This is Swiss Watches Sales certainly reached by vertically disengaging the pinion from the one centesimal of a next hand from that of the escapement, which presses within the pivot shank and functions being a brake.
The complex specs in the Centigraphe don't stop there, as it also boasts a patented chronograph mechanism that isolates the chronograph in the timekeeping functionality. This means the balance amplitude is unaffected in the event the chronograph is functioning, and so the precision on the replica watch continues to be the same even though the chronograph is activated. A wheel, mounted to the fourth wheel from the movement, engages a pinion carrying the traveling seconds hand. This suggests that the foudroyante next hand is driven by both equally the likely teach with the motion, working off the barrel, plus the chronograph educate, operating from the barrel arbour. The 1 second counter and the 20-seconds counter are driven by two wheel trains on both side of a one intermediate wheel pushed through the barrel arbour. A further separate prepare of wheels, also pushed by the barrel arbour, drives the 10-minutes hand. However, there's a downside to that building. Once the chronograph is activated, the ability Omega reserve is radically cut from 80 hrs to 24 hours, as multiple gear trains are pushed straight from the barrel.
That technicality is generally hidden when wanting within the caseback as the chronograph capabilities are to the dial aspect on the motion. You will not have the Swiss Watches Sales capacity to see the levers and column wheel functioning when activating the chronograph perform. A fascinating place to the activation of your chronograph: ordinarily, you have got to get started on that has a 1st pusher at 2 o'clock, end the evaluate of time by urgent that very same button Swiss Watches Sales and reset the fingers by urgent a further pusher at four o'clock. Over the Centigraphe, F.P. Journe will come up having a clever system the place the Omega chronograph is Swiss Watches Sales began, stopped and zeroed by a rocker at two o'clock while in the Swiss Salesscenario band. Quite convenient to use, that patented structure is additionally extra discreet (stopping two massive pushers coming out of the situation band) and Omega gives much more security to people pushers.
When seeking in the motion, you may right away figure out François-Paul Journe's perform, with the regular gold bridges and plates, the round Geneva stripes about the best bridges, circular graining about the underside with the plates along with a incredibly good layout. The level of complete is predicated on Haute-Horlogery expectations and every detail is hand-finished, including the beveled angles and polished screw and jewel openings.
The design presented here is a particular version only manufactured for that official boutiques (not a constrained version) recognizable along with the blend of a black lacquered dial with purple gold indexes and an 18k crimson gold scenario. Combined with all the distinction of the white sub-dials and pink hands/time scale to the chronograph capabilities, it presents the look at an exceedingly wonderful ambiance and a cherished experience about the wrist, devoid of exhibiting off.
Around the wrist, the Centigraphe is a reasonably sized dress-replica watch with its diameter of 40mm and its top of ten.7mm. It may simply be used with jacket and tie, because it will in good shape below your cuffs. Having said that the chronograph functionality presents the look at a sporty Omega feeling as well as abnormal layout on the dial, like the vast majority of F.P. Journe's timepieces, offers a suitable originality.
To conclude, the Centigraphe is an additional good timepiece that demonstrates the know-how of F.P. Journe, meaning it's a precious experience and unusual difficulties, generally with very technological content that is again not obvious or comprehensible in the beginning sight.
