Passion of watch Brands — how it all begin?


Just wan­der a bit on blogs watch­mak­ers to under­stand the pas­sion for Replica watches is not lim­ited to a few tech­ni­cal fea­tures or even a logo. So in this case of neglect­ing some­thing as impor­tant as her bracelet could we, Fol­low­ing are the numer­ous requests, we have added in the cat­e­gory of “Jew­ellery”. To give us a per­fect oppor­tu­nity of revis­ing the his­tory of this small strip of leather, metal or rub­ber, we also talk about the com­mit­ment that just love to wear this watch acces­sory that attaches us lit­er­ally as fig­u­ra­tively to our dear tocantes.

A his­tory of wrist Replica watches in ancient and recent time

Elizabeth I of EnglandThe grip may seem con­tra­dic­tory, but in the field of watch­mak­ing as in the tech­no­log­i­cal progress are iden­ti­fied in the course of his­tory sev­eral point attempts before see­ing the wide­spread use of an inven­tion. The idea of attach­ing a tool to read the time on his wrist and its his­tory are rel­a­tively old and ornate anec­dotes. Among these anec­dotes which limit the suc­cess of the wrist­watch found a per­son­al­ity choice, Queen Eliz­a­beth I of Eng­land. The Earl of Leices­ter offered in effect to this all-powerful queen dur­ing the age of British gold, sus­pended from a shows a “arm­let” under­stand a bracelet in 1571. This orig­i­nal roman­tic ges­ture made ​​famous by these pro­tag­o­nists blue blood paves the way for a new type of jew­elry. Cer­tainly it was not the gun that trans­formed for­ever the way we read and car­ries the hour, but this is a first step of importance.

But it is in the nine­teenth cen­tury, under the lead­er­ship of fash­ion that things are accel­er­at­ing a bit. Indeed, it is the sleeve length female clothes short­en­ing that were the real cat­a­lyst for the devel­op­ment of the wristwatch.

More­over, we have two pres­ti­gious evi­dences that reflect this trend in watch­mak­ing and these are as follows:

- In 1810 Abra­ham Louis designs shows an extremely refined and tech­no­log­i­cally led to the Queen of Naples. It has an eccen­tric time indi­cates the tem­per­a­ture and has a bracelet of the most orig­i­nal since it is made ​​of hair and golden son.

In 1811, the jew­eler Napoleon man­u­fac­tures two wrist­Replica watches for Princess Augusta of Bavaria.


As you prob­a­bly already under­stand the watch is still at this stage a jewel reserved pri­mar­ily for the fairer sex. Men still pre­fer the nine­teenth pocket watch, that is to say, the pocket watch. This is also in 1867 that Lip began his great adven­ture with just pocket Replica watches which quickly met a great success.

Avi­a­tion before the advent of wristwatch

This is not women’s fash­ion but avi­a­tion deeply changed our con­cep­tion of time­pieces far closer to the mid­dle of the jew­elry, the expres­sion of a cer­tain social sta­tus for men as for women. In 1904, Cartier cre­ated a wrist­watch for San­tos Dumont and his friend avi­a­tor who is read­ing his watch fob dif­fi­cult when fly­ing his airplane.

This is the begin­ning of a great love between pilots and shows that at that time was absolutely essen­tial his­tory since it was the only instru­ment panel to locate them in time and space. We rec­om­mend that you also read our arti­cle on the epic air­mail for more infor­ma­tion about it. And dur­ing the first part of the twen­ti­eth cen­tury shows grad­u­ally becomes some­thing use­ful, a tool that must be both accu­rate and durable, exactly what the mil­i­tary forces of all stripes need.

It is there­fore nat­ural that the wrist­watch is widely adopted before World War II to be timed and orches­trated mil­i­tary strate­gies more pre­cise and developed.1903_Wright-e1351943606699

One can eas­ily think that they are the bracelets that have influ­enced the shape of Replica watches and even favorite research areas in the watch­mak­ing world. Indeed, if we must wear the watch on your wrist, it is easy to see the appeal of a box and a light­weight, com­fort­able to wear move­ment. The Lip T18 that was found at the time a huge suc­cess even at the inter­na­tional level is a per­fect illustration.

Wear­ing watch is a passion

Lovers of Replica watches con­sider their Replica watches as time cap­sules, because it is “vin­tage” look of the time­piece that attracts the authen­tic wear of steels which have lived, but also the his­tory that fine lines and stripes bracelets can tell by their extension.hnv3jakmwmatlzpiu2-lip_2000__2_-290x290

A lit­tle ear­lier we talked about the expan­sion of the wrist­watch through the civil and mil­i­tary avi­a­tion. With­out return­ing to the sub­ject so we know that most pre twen­ti­eth cen­tury bracelets were made sig­nif­i­cantly more frag­ile than leather mate­ri­als because the strength was not an absolute require­ment for a jewel ceremonial.

This is the leather that we must pay trib­ute in the first place, because that is its strength, the mul­ti­ple pos­si­bil­i­ties of col­ors it offers and its costs more rea­son­able that made quite nat­u­rally the first choice of Watchmaker.

It is thus not sur­pris­ing to see so many types of bracelets, but also to see the watch enthu­si­asts make their own changes. It may be that there is in the strap of a watch a bit of his soul. For exam­ple, a watch strap Avi­a­tor will not fit in a jewel which shows a more urban and of course vice versa shows. The bracelet gives mean­ing to watch a cre­ation by giv­ing the owner the oppor­tu­nity to enjoy his time­piece in the con­text of his pro­fes­sion or lifestyle.

Every­thing is a mat­ter of taste but it is an under­state­ment to say that the band accounts for a sig­nif­i­cant share in the over­all aes­thet­ics of a watch and proven suc­cess. He is the wit­ness of a style, the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of an era, but also a piece of our his­tory. The story of a bracelet is some­times as impor­tant as the watch to which it relates.

To illus­trate this idea, we can for exam­ple speak of the birth of the bracelet “Nato” is not just leather.


Finally we had to talk about French tan­ners still per­pet­u­ate the art of watch bracelets hand­made from the skin. The qual­ity of their work is breath­tak­ing and ama­teur clien­tele re-focusing more and more on their exper­tise. Among the largest in the world of leather, it is impor­tant to men­tion his­tor­i­cal names such as Camille who brought in the world of French watch­mak­ing tan­ning exotic skins like alli­ga­tor, ostrich, python or lizard which he gave new col­ors and fin­ishes which he applied extremely refined.
