Gerald Genta's Classics during 2009Designer Gerald Genta started his own brand in 1969, however, this talented haute horlogerie designer also did design be employed by numereous other watch brands. He's responsibles for a lot of all-time watch classics which are produced in the 1970s. By far the most spectacular designs are the type with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Patek Philippe Nautilus, Vacheron Constantin 22(Overseas) as well as the IWC Ingenieur.However, like I wrote before within the article within the Vacheron Constantin 222, these replica watches become unaffordable. A vintage 222 in steel will set you back around 10.000 Euro, and i also only found 1 for sale on chrono24.com. Will you love the vintage Patek Philippe Nautilus ref.3700 and also cut back for starters? Asking prices around 28.000 Euro are certainly not unusual. An antique 1970s IWC Ingenieur SL1832 can be obtained for approximately 12.000 Euro.And last not but least, Gerald Genta’s favorite (as they claims in many interviews), the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15202ST (A-serie) are available in so-so condition on chrono24 for under 10.000 Euro.I don’t directly url to the dealer or seller’s pages, because I am frightened of broken links inside the (near) future, however a search on chrono24, the RLX.de sales corner or watchchrono.com helps keep you distract for a night.So, where to start whenever you admire Gerald Genta’s iconic designs with the 1970s but don’t obtain much cash for example with the vintage originals?Taking a look at a number of the alternatives? Right answer. All four brands still make these models, however, many of those have different movements inside or underwent some optical changes. Let’s compare the first models using the current models that AP, PP, VC and IWC carry of their catalogues. At the very least price wise the actual models are more interesting for getting, but will you get what you are looking for?Let’s begin with the watch that started the whole luxury metal sports watch ‘hypenoisy . 1970s, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo. The very first model is not very distinctive from the present model (not to be confusing with the 15300 model, sometimes by ignorance being generally known as ‘Jumbo.The latest model is pictured below, essentially the most prominent changes are in the dial design. Just small things, including the AP logo that went from 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock, once index and also the white frame around the date window. velcro watch bands This one comes not far from its original as pictured above. Even the movement remains the same, AP caliber 2121.The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo (ref.15202ST) carries a market price near 14.000 Euro, however, a somewhat used model can be found for approx. 8.000 Euro. So, i believe, this makes a fantastic alternative to the vintage model. However, are you wanting a new(er) watch with a few warranty, or pay a 2.000 Euro premium to the original vintage model that probably needs an expensive service first?Second will be the Vacheron Constantin 222, introduced in 1977. As written before, at the time of this write-up, one is on the block in Miami for approx. 10K Euro. The main clearly is different from the present Vacheron Constantin ‘alternative the Overseas ref. 47040. The Vacheron as well as the IWC will be the two brands that basically generate a completely revised sort of the main watch, as where Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet seek to stick to the original 1970s model.The differences are way too much to write about. Look for yourself, even characteristic Vacheron Constantain logo in case has disappeared. The design have a total upgrade, from case to buckle, though the influences from the original are clearly there. The going price for your ref.47040 here is approx 6000 Euro. However, anybody can hardly refer to this as a real alternative. It is just a nice watch, for just a relatively reasonable price.Up next is just about the most desirable brands, the Patek Philippe. The Nautilus ref.3700 has been around since 1976, using caliber 28-255. I'm sure this really is probably the most desirable stainless steel replica watches around, with the vintage Rolex Daytona Paul Newman model (ref.6239). The existing kind of the Nautilus will be the ref.5711/1A, using movement caliber 324 SC. This watch incorporates a going price that is almost equal (or more) for the list price of approx. 14.000 Euro. That’s most on the price that is being called for a good and finish original 1970s model.The differences are mainly in the movement plus having less a pre-owned inside original rather than new reference. The dial design is quite identical, as they are the appearance of the way it is and bracelet.And lastly, the IWC Ingenieur. The Ingenieur was originally introduced from the early-mid 1950s and appears completely different from the models pictured below. In 1977, the IWC Ingenieur SL (Steel Line) became available in stores, 12 months after introduction. The IWC used the inhouse movement caliber 8541ES. In doing my first a lot of watch collecting (1998/1999), I really thought this needs to be the treasure watch. However, there wasn’t much I could find about the correct reference numbers (what one to obtain) and the prices were very high then already. Like a student, that it was unattainable to get one for me personally. IWC introduced lots of Ingenieur models, such as impressive model released in 1989, that was capable of resist magnetic fields approximately 500,000 A/m.?Ǭ? The creation of the Ingenieur series stopped in 2002. In 2005, IWC re-introduced the Ingenieur with regard number 3227-01. The introduction price was eventually greater than the latest shop price of 5900 Euro. As a result of impopularity on the watch, it can be had for much less. Approx. 4500 Euro gives you a brand new 3227-01, and slightly used will lower the price by a few hundreds extra.As you have seen below, the ‘corefrom the design continues. Clearly a design with strong influences from Gerald Genta. For me, stronger compared to Gerald Genta DNA in our Vacheron Constantin Overseas ref. 47040. The new Ingenieur uses IWC inhouse movement caliber 80110. However, the manufacture of this Ingenieur has stopped already. You may still discover them on the market at authorized dealers, but IWC discontinued them and introduced its successor (the Mission Earth model) through the SIHH 2009. See more at that update.So, replica omega what direction to go? In case you have quite some money to invest, I'd personally pick the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo (ref.15202ST). This particular one is actually identical to the real deal. Actually, in accordance with most householders, it's the real thing since the utilisation of the original caliber 2121 movement. Because I can forgive AP for moving the company from 6 to 12, Patek Philippe happens an additional place, with all the Nautilus ref.5711/1A. However, it is twice the cost of a slightly used Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo. If that’s justified or otherwise not, is often a question to become answered in another article I reckon that 😉The Vacheron Constantin Overseas and ‘new ?IWC Ingenieur 3227-01 are definitely the most revised models. Plus in my view, the Ingenieur gets a bit more credits for keeping the Genta spirit. Vacheron may have done more using the Overseas, like maintaining your signature in the event that or keeping the watch design more ‘squarish On this category, also price wise, I'd personally select the Ingenieur (in fact, I have done and wrote a small review within this watch, click the link to read through it).Although I like an original 1970s models, I would be cautious to waste so much money for a watch which is over Three decades old. Be sure to acquire one with box, papers and service history. You don’t need to be confronted with damaged or broken parts. All 4 manufacturers charges you you hugely on getting them overhauled or repaired.Sorry due to this lengthy writing / article, but for getting things explained properly, I wanted at the least 8 pictures and several textual explanation! 🙂I am very interested in learning what you would do to be a watch collector or (at the least) aficionado, saving up for your real deal, or opt for one of many alternatives.
