Where to buy replica watches in Englewood, New Jersey?

Combining a small-town feel with easy access to the Big Apple (just across the Hudson river) is Englewood, New Jersey. And it’s home to The Timepiece Collection for the past 15 years. Back when they opened in 2001, there was a very small market of high-end watch retailers in Bergen County. At that time, two avid watch lovers and longtime friends, Mike Rosenberg and Jeff Khalaf, created The Timepiece Collection Ltd.

BuyWatchesTop (BWT): What types of watches are popular in your market? What makes Englewood a unique place to buy replica watches?

Timepiece Collection: We have many local watch collectors in the area and sell a lot of high-complication timepieces. The three brands that are our most popular are Audemars Piguet, Ulysse Nardin, and Hublot. In 2015, one of our biggest accomplishments was that we were named the #1 retailer of Hublot in the tri-state area. We also have an in-house watch repair and service department. Our store is truly a one-stop shop for all customers.

Englewood is a unique place to buy fake watches because there is such a diverse community of watch lovers. We have a brand in store to fit nearly any price point. Anyone from the avid shopper, to the high-end collector will walk into our store on any given day.

BWT: Do you serve mostly locals or tourists, or is it a good mix? Also, what percentage of your customers would you call “knowledgeable watch collectors?”

Timepiece Collection: Because we ship internationally, we have a good mix of local customers as well as tourists. We are located just across the George Washington Bridge, and have many clients come in from Manhattan. A majority of our clients have been purchasing watches from us for the past 15 years. Being a luxury dealer for so many brands within 5 miles of Manhattan gives us a huge advantage.

Timepiece Collection: Englewood is well-known for the Bergen Performing Arts Center. It is a local non-profit theater that brings both big and small names to the stage. The town has a great selection of restaurants and shops for visitors. Englewood is also known for various celebrities that have lived in the East Hill Mansions, including Eddie Murphy, Sara Jessica Parker, Lil’ Kim, Tony Bennett, and many others. It is a small community with a city-like feel, and that’s what makes the entire neighborhood so desirable.

We also sponsored an event benefiting Eva’s Village which is a local non-profit that helps underprivileged children in Bergen County.

Last weekend took place the most eagerly anticipated event of the World Endurance Championship season, the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2016. “Official Timing Partner” of Porsche Motorsport since the beginning of the 2014 season, Chopard was supporting the German team for this this key competition.

For this 84th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Chopard replica presents the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition, a 100-piece limited series. The powerful and sophisticated chronograph is inspired by the new Porsche 919 Hybrid – an evolved version of the speed machine that powered Porsche Motorsport to the very top of the 2015 podium.

Building on its close ties with Porsche Motorsport, Chopard presents the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition chronograph, produced in a 100-piece limited series and inspired by the new Porsche 919 Hybrid 2016. Exclusively available in replica Chopard boutiques, the limited Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition flies high the banner of the new Porsche prototype by picking up its aesthetic codes. Witness the imposing 45 mm-diameter case made in titanium – an ultra-light material much favoured in the world of endurance racing – that is bead-blasted, blackened by a DLC treatment ensuring an extremely scratch-resistant coating, and water-resistant to 100 metres. Topping it is a bezel bearing a lacquered titanium tachymetric scale and secured by eight PVD-coated blackened screws. The matt black rubber-moulded screw-lock crown bears a steering wheel emblem, while the two pushers are respectively coated in red rubber at 2 o’clock and black rubber at 4 o’clock. The grooves on the case middle evoke the cooling fins of race-car engines, an exclusive finish reflected in the straight lines of the dial reminiscent of the Porsche 919 Hybrid’s rear diffuser. The red 919 logo appearing on the hours counter is identical to the numbers of the Porsche Hybrid competition cars.

Clothed in deep black, lit up by glowing white as well as vivid red accents, the new Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition plays on the contrasts between the three colours of the new futuristic Porsche prototype. Its matt black dial features red counter hands, minutes markers and central sweep-seconds hand, while Superluminova-painted Arabic numerals, hours and minutes hands as well as metallic hour-markers stand out distinctly against the dial.

The Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition is powered by the Replica Watches Chopard Calibre 03.05M. Entirely produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fleurier Ebauches workshops, this mechanical self-winding chronograph movement achieves remarkable precision certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The movement delivers a substantial 60-hour power reserve and features a flyback function. The sapphire crystal case-back, engraved with the inscription “Official Timing Partner Porsche Motorsport” as well as the team logo, provides a chance to admire this cutting-edge mechanism featuring slit bridges reminiscent of racing engines.

This timepiece is delivered with a black rubber strap inspired by slick competition racing tyres and secured by a folding clasp in DLC-coated titanium.

Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph Replica Watches Hands-On

Chopard-LUC-Perpetual-Chronograph-1

As a watch enthusiast, any Chopard L.U.C should pique your interest. L.U.C is a tribute to the brand’s founder, Louis-Ulysse Chopard, and represents Chopard’s haute horology wing. With the new Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph, the brand elevates the hand-wound movement we know and love from the 1963 Chronograph with an eye-catching and wonderfully detailed new model.

Chopard-LUC-Perpetual-Chronograph-2

The Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph uses a 45mm-wide 18k Fairmined white gold case. Thickness is 15mm, and while the Replica Watch is undoubtedly large, its short lugs make it quite wearable on my 7-inch wrist. Fairmined gold is a result of mines being certified for a variety of factors including safety, social concerns, and environmental protection. This is a more responsible way of sourcing gold, one that is designed to ensure the long-term viability of smaller operators.

Chopard-LUC-Perpetual-Chronograph-3

The Replica Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph’s dial is a work of art, ruthenium-coated and host to a lovely hand-guilloche that radiates from the big date display. The rhodium-plated roman numeral markers are applied and match perfectly with the lumed hand set, which features a long minute hand promising strong legibility. The moonphase display is slightly recessed but adds a richness to the dial, with a deep blue and silver layout. As is common with moonphase complications, the display on the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph is impressively accurate to within one day in every 122 years (assuming you kept the movement running for that period of time).

With a twin register layout, the perpetual calendar display is complex but easily absorbed. The chronograph scale is represented in white on the outer perimeter of the subdials while, moving left to right, the am/pm, day, month, and leap year indicators reside within the subdials, with a distinct handset over a grey background. With first-rate finishing, the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph’s balanced dial design is a mix of traditional elements blended with red accents and asymmetrical sub dials.

Chopard-LUC-Perpetual-Chronograph-4

That complexity and fine finishing is perhaps even better understood when viewing the caliber 03.10-L through the wide sapphire display case back. The movement is rendered in nickel silver, which is known for being both beautiful and difficult to work with. The 03.10-L is based on Chopard’s 03.07-L hand-wound flyback chronograph movement, which is a stunning movement by any measure and one that we’ve seen used in their L.U.C 1963 Chronograph.

The COSC-certified 03.10-L operates at 4Hz with 42 jewels and a power reserve of 60 hours supporting a flyback column wheel 12-hour chronograph with a vertical clutch and the myriad functions of the perpetual calendar. Manufactured and hand-finished entirely in-house by Chopard Replica Watches, the L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph also passes the muster of the Poinçon de Genève (fully explained here), which now considers the replica watch in its entirety, rather than just the movement. This highly regarded hallmark is a tribute to the considerable quality of all aspects for the design and execution of the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph.

Chopard-LUC-Perpetual-Chronograph-5

Delivered on a hand-sewn alligator leather strap with a matching Fairmined 18k gold tang buckle at a list price of US$95,630, the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph is limited to just 20 pieces. While Chopard’s bread and butter is likely from more mass-produced pieces, I think Replica Watches Uk like this remarkable perpetual chronograph represent a sometimes overlooked element within Chopard, a heart for haute horology that is the equal of anything in top tier watchmaking.
