This perfect replica Heuer “Pre-Carrera” from the 1940s is one not to be missed. Interestingly, this model got its nickname because of its shared reference number “2447” and the design elements that were carried over to the Carrera introduced in 1963. The most compelling resemblance is the unmistakably strong shape of the lugs; angular and elongated. Plus, it is fitted with the same chronograph movement, the Valjoux 72. Unlike the Carrera from the 1960s, this ref. 2447 has more of a 1940s design. This “Pre-Carrera” design is more reminiscent of military chronographs with a screw-down caseback and luminous syringe-type hands.
What’s really amazing about this watch is the overall condition. The black dial is still clean and well-preserved with an honest patina, and the gold-tone gilt writing really pops against the black background. The oversized registers are almost touching each other and finished with concentric circles, which maximizes legibility. The lume on the large Arabic numerals is well-preserved with the perfect amount of patina in pale yellow, as it often has the tendency to turn into a very dark color. Just a stunning watch overall! You can make it yours by heading over to the online store.
There are so many beautiful pocket watches that still remain under-the-radar. When this gorgeous piece showed up at our office, I immediately had to stop everything I was working on to take a look and test it out for myself. From a design standpoint, this pocket watch has form and function perfectly aligned. The layout of the dial is clean and to the point with black painted Arabic numerals and minute track for maximum clarity. Also, the railroad track on the registers finished with the concentric circles are a subtle but thoughtful finish for a simple timing instrument. And, let’s not forget the gorgeous blued steel leaf hands, which are also used in some of the favorite classic dress watches from the same era, like the Calatrava by Patek Philippe.

Perhaps the most under the radar release at the end of last year or simply what will now be the ultimate Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual grail. Cased in platinum with a salmon-colored dial the ref. 26611PT.OO.1220PT.01 puts the Royal Oak Quantième Perpétuel back on the center stage with a very this very coveted dial and special oscillating weight. The new Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar exclusive for ‘The Time Place’ —Indonesia’s top authorized dealer— is available in a highly collectible 20-piece limited edition and cased in a 41 mm platinum case. The layout is exactly the same as in all other iterations of this particular model with day, date, the highly detailed astronomical moon in aventurine, month, and leap year, and this time with the 52 weeks of the year indicated by a silvered outer chapter ring with black central hand.
The perfect fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Quantième Perpétuel ‘The Time Place’ is powered by the new in-house automatic Swiss movement calibre 5134 based on its predecessor the calibre 2120. The movement has a total thickness of 4.31 mm and a diameter of 29.00 mm. Composed of 374 parts and 38 jewels, the movement provides a power reserve of 40 hours while oscillating at a frequency of 19,800 vph. The oscillating weight is guided by a peripheral ring rolling on four ruby runners, which reduces friction and wear to the minimum possible. The moon phase indicator, laser microstructured, laid on an aventurine that requires correction every 125 years and 317 days.
This new model just like the Latin America Edition or the unique piece for the ‘One Night One Drop Charity Auction’ we featured here, is equipped with a special oscillating weight that is totally different from the one on the regular production Royal Oak Perpetual models. The oscillating weight in 22K rose gold is engraved with the 20th Anniversary logo from The Time Place and the case back bears the inscription “Limited Edition of 20 Pieces” but not individually numbered.
