Who wants to talk about precision? Because that is our today’s main topic – with the name of still not very famous new brand on the market ‘Akrivia’ that in ancient Greek indeed means accuracy or precision I will make a full hands-on review of their first creation – the tourbillon/chronograph. For some of you, who may have read my article on tourbillons here you already know that this movement complication can slightly increase the time accuracy of the timepiece, though not as effective as on a pocket watch. And as A.Lange&Sohne replica uk suggest precision right from the name to keep up with it the brand’s first watch already explores that idea by bringing together 2 traditional complications: tourbillon and chronograph, both aimed to make the time precise.I know that today in the watch world there are many new entrants on the market, many new watches and it is sometimes hard to understand what is worthy taking a look at and what’s not. My gut feeling told me that this watch is definitely something interesting and I decided to take a closer look at it in person, meeting with the creators of the brand, who have started it – Rexhep and Etienne, two guys behind Franck Muller replica uk both have very intense horology background for such young entrepreneurs.Rexhep Rexhepi is the main brain behind it; he spent 4 years working and studying watchmaking at nonetheless than Patek Philippe, brand known for technical perfection, and huge history behind it. Apart from working there Rexhep also has collaborated and helped such famous watchmakers like Francois Paul Journe with some of the pieces, and has definitely learnt from the best, judging by the outcome of the new A.Lange&Sohne replica ukpiece. Etienne has also helped A.Lange&Sohne replica ukstart and create the first watch, using his years at Chopard.Now a little bit more about the A.Lange&Sohne replica ukTourbillon Monopusher Chronograph – the roots and inspiration for the piece came from the classical and traditional round casings, that were popular throughout the entire horology history, but with breitling replica uk it is not just that – the case is made out of 30 different metal parts, combined together to create a very futuristic yet classy design. Combining the matte looking finishing, very modern dial and a traditional strap top this feeling. The mix surprisingly works very well, and not just on the photos but in reality too, as the watch is actually smaller than it seems; it’s not another oversized monster, even with the case diameter of 43mm.Now, that we started talking about the dial it’s a whole other topic. First of all, the movement of the watch was designed and created by Rexhep and his friends also based in Geneva, the hometown of AkriviA. What is interesting about it is the combination of an in-house tourbillon escapement (that features letter A as the design) and the mono-pusher chronograph. Monopushers, movements where the chronograph function is activated, stopped and reset all by pressing one button is also very rarely displayed on the ‘dial’ side of the watch, and usually are hidden contrary to this model. This makes the watch look very cool when the chronograph is used, as you can really see the mechanism working and even interacting with the tourbillon cage!
