Founded three years ago, Cheap Replica Watches now debuts its first timepiece, a skeleton tourbillon with jumping seconds in a 50mm titanium case.
Founded by Stéphane Lacroix-Gachet, a designer whose portfolio includes watches for DeWitt, Hamilton and Rado, the company gets its name from karoshi,Japanese for “death from overwork”. According to the brand, it’s a nod to those who work to the limits, including Mr Lacroix-Gachet.
Karoshi recruited Le Cercle des Horloger for the construction and the movement. Founded by an alumnus of Christophe Claret’s complications workshop, Best Luxury Replica Watches Le Cercle des Horloger SA, or CHSA, is a complications specialist which has built tourbillons for brands like Corum and Ralph Lauren.
Featuring titanium bridges and plates, the calibre inside is automatic, wound by a Pellaton mechanism and a platinum micro-rotor mounted co-axial with the barrel, and equipped with an oversized, Fake Watches 14mm balance wheel. The tourbillon is at six o’clock, while the deadbeat seconds at nine relies on a spring and lever to jump.
The case construction is unusual: the base plate is “unibody”, meaning it also forms the case band. Gaskets and sapphire crystals are mounted on the front and back of the base plate to create the watch case. The rubber strap is also one-piece, sitting within the wide channel on the side of the base plate and secured by lateral screws.
Made of titanium, the Replica Watches case is a huge 50mm, with a highly comedic sapphire crystal that’s over 4mm high. Despite the size, the watch is only 50g.
