Ochs Und Junior’s Ludwig Oechslin Explains How He Engineered The Simplest Perpetual Calendar On Earth

There’s little better than watching a master at work. In this video, Ochs und Junior founder Ludwig Oechslin walks us through the assembly of his latest watch, a perpetual calendar. This isn’t just any old perpetual though. Oechslin’s invention is the simplest perpetual calendar ever made, using just nine components for the calendar mechanism itself. The video comes in just under 25 minutes long, and if you don’t speak German you’re going to have to read subtitles – but I promise it’s worth every second.Cheap replica watches online.

The Perpetual Calendar is everything you’d expect from Ochs und Junior. The small watchmaker has always been known for its rigorous simplicity (which we dove into on the Road to Basel) and this watch is that philosophy’s logical conclusion. Most perpetual calendars use dozens, sometimes even hundreds, of gears, levers, and springs to track the date, day, month, and leap year cycles. Oechslin pared this all back to just nine components. He also completely eliminated springs and levers (both essential in traditional perpetual calendars) so the mechanism can be set in both directions solely through the crown, and will be less susceptible to wear or accidental damage. For a full in-depth look at the watch, check out the story we wrote when Ochs und Junior first unveiled the perpetual calendar back in June.Luxury fake watches UK.

A shade of brown with a hint of red, “terra-brown” is similar to umber on the colour chart and is also the colour of the new Lange Saxonia Automatic. Presented for the first time at cheap replica A. Lange & Söhne watches new boutique in Tokyo, Japan, the Saxonia Automatic “terra-brown” adds diversity to Lange’s most affordable automatic watch (which is the latest in a series of entry-level timepieces including the Saxonia Thin 37mm and Saxonia Boutique Edition).

As with all Lange dials, the “terra-brown” is a disc of solid silver, finished with a fine grained surface and given a brown coating. All of the hour markers as well as the hands are made of solid gold.

Available in replica A. Lange & Söhne watches white or rose gold, the case is 38.5mm in diameter, equipped with the calibre L086.1, a self-winding movement with a three day power reserve. Being the brand’s basic automatic movement, the L086.1 is more simply constructed than Lange’s top of the line automatic (found in the Langematik perpetual calendar for instance). So it lacks gold chatons for the jewels and the rotor is gilded rather than luxury fake A. Lange & Söhne solid gold, but still has high-end detailing like a platinum rotor rim, hand-engraved balance cock and blued steel screws.
