Hands-on: Cheap Replica Zenith El Primero Range Rover (Specs, Photos and Price)

There’s a common saying that ‘car’ guys are ‘watch’ guys. Behind this aphorism though is a real connection fueled by the love of fine mechanics, performance and passion. As a result collaborations between watch and car manufacturers have flourished – for the better … or worse. Case in point, Zenith and Land Rover recently announced their first watch collaboration. Now regardless of what you think of such partnerships, you have to agree that this one stands out. For a start, Landrover is not just about performance and mechanics. Its go-anywhere, tow-anything cars are an expression of freedom – a philosophy that speaks to me more than turbo-charged engines. Secondly, the replica Zenith El Primero Range Rover is simply a superb (no-fuss) chronograph. Time for a hands-on look.

The Zenith El Primero Range Rover is a variation of the El Primero 36’000 VPH. Just like the vehicles of the British car maker, it is sophisticated and understated. Apart from a discreet Range Rover caption, exact fake Zenith watches has avoided any loud co-branding cues in favor of designing a sober, elegant special edition chronograph. The watch comes in a dynamic 42mm case with a box sapphire crystal and mushroom pushers. It is crafted in ceramised aluminum, a nod to the Range Rover chassis. The overall impression is one of urban stealth, in the spirit of modern Range Rovers rather than in that of the original rugged, off-road Land Rovers.

The anthracite three-counter dial features a smart brushed finish and faceted hour markers. The date is indicated at 6 o’clock in white on black as it should be (sometimes brands use standard white date discs regardless the color of the dial). The hour and minutes hands are rhodium coated with luminescent material inlays.

This special edition is powered by the 400B version of the iconic El Primero chronograph personalized with a ‘Range Rover’ engraving on the rotor. Introduced in 1969, El Primero was one of the very first automatic chronographs. It is an integrated construction with column-wheel and horizontal clutch. As it is operating at 36’000 vibrations/hours, the chronograph second hands performs 10 jumps per seconds marking off tenths of a second. Not surprisingly, given the automotive background of the watch, the chronograph is complemented by a tachymetric scale, discreetly transferred on the flange.

Conclusion

The El Primero 36’000 VPH is one of our favorite Zenith watches. The restrained and thoughtful customization performed with Range Rover has not changed our minds about this – even if we are not always fans of ‘co-branded’ or ‘partnership’ models. With its reasonable size and super-light material, it is comfortable on the wrist. The El Primero engine inside ensures there is more than enough power under the hood and at € 8,900 EURO (£7,200 GBP for the UK) we think it’s fairly priced too.

HANDS-ON: Saxony at its most serious – UK Cheap Replica A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Up/Down

Even though there’s no doubt that the darlings of A. Lange & Söhne’s lineup are the more contemporarily styled pieces like the Lange One and the Zeitwerk, there’s still a place for deeply traditional design the catalogue of Glashütte’s favourite son – and that’s the 1815 collection.

Named for the year of founder Ferdinand A. Lange’s birth, the 1815 family of watches takes as its inspiration early marine chronometres. First developed in the 18th Century, these ship-bound timepieces were extremely accurate, and a vital tool in navigation. And while the design isn’t what we’d associate with tool watches these days, make no mistake, legibility and reliability were the name of the game. It’s logical that Lange, those masters of function and style, adopt this distinctive look as the trademark for their 1815 collection. With the blued sword-style hands, railroad minute track (with the brand’s distinctive triple dot at the cardinal points) and the ornate, Jugendstil numerals the luxury fake A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Up/Down would look just as stylish in 1915 as it does today.

For me though, the most charming feature of this watch is the bottom-heavy subdial layout, a sure sign (if any were needed from Lange) that the L051.2 movement definitely isn’t an off the shelf ebauche. And while the right-hand dial displays the running seconds, it’s the Auf/Ab indicator on the left that is the soul of this watch. If your deutsche is up to scratch (or you’re just observant), you’ll have worked out that Auf/Ab means Up/Down and that this is a power reserve read out, showing off the 72 hour power reserve. Aside from adding balance to the dial, the inclusion of the power reserve indicator again harks back to the time when this sort of watch was a critical tool, and knowing when it was about to stop telling the time was serious business.

These days it’s less crucial, but there’s no doubt the 1815 Up/Down looks the business – it’s a serious, sober watch, the sort of timepiece the mountains of Saxony have been producing for centuries. There’s no reason you couldn’t dress it down a little, but to really make that pink gold case shine, wear it with a suit.
