The replica Epic X is also a uniquely designed piece. This is one of those rare examples of the actual symbiosis of the inside and the outside of a watch. The X graphic that gives the collection its name sits on its paired lugs. They are connected to each other by vertical bridges of skeletal movement, forming a continuous shape throughout the work.
All these unique characteristics have been retained and enhanced in the new series. The most obvious update to the design is the new shape of the case. The once stepped bezel is now smooth and polished, with a steeper angle. The X-shaped lugs are now full and flush, and start slightly above the sapphire crystal. Their ends are more angular and vertical, creating a better fit for the strap.
The second most obvious change is the case strap, which extends beyond the case circle to form a set of crown guards. Between them, the redesigned crown showcases a two-layer notched steel tip. Its foundation introduces a new design principle: the Epic X now has several colorful components, made of aluminum. Jacob & Co. opted for vibrant blues and vibrant greens, and opted for the black DLC Steel Epic X, black.replica watches for sale
These colors are applied to the flange, which also comes with a redesigned font. The satin-finished edges of the two vertical bridges, the body of the X. Even more insidious, their undersides, only visible through the sapphire caseback, go beyond the labyrinth of the components of the JCAM45 movement.
Calibre JCAM45 is an integral part of the Epic X identity. It cannot properly be called a skeleton movement, as it was not derived from an existing movement, just to be skeletonized. It's designed that way. Therefore, it benefits from a free graph structure. The wide barrel at 12 o'clock and the balance wheel at 6 o'clock define the vertical nature of the movement. It is further enhanced by vertical bridges that run along them. They once carried the printed brand signature and have since moved at the 12 o'clock position.replica Ulysse Nardin Diver Watches
They are also openworked and may still be in the future. But so far, they'll be using one of the Epic X's signature finishes. The Clou de Paris (or Parisian hobnail) guilloché is an engraved pattern made of a square-base pyramid with polished surfaces. A classic pattern in watchmaking, it brings texture and a unique light reflection to the equation. Half dial, half movement, these constructions remain true to the Epic X's original mission of blurring the lines between inside and outside.
The Calibre JCAM45 is more than a work of symmetrical and vertical design. This is also a well-made timepiece. The 5.9mm-thick movement is extremely skeletonized, a feature that is concealed by fully vertical bridges. It features a high-end balance wheel with adjustment screws that is almost flush with the dial.
The rest of the blackened surface of the skeletonized motherboard is pearled (round grained), sandblasted, and vertical grained. A look at the back of the movement reveals the unique "octopus" spring, a delicate component with three extremely thin and elegantly curved blades. It acts as a detent spring and set lever spring. The meticulous care of its design and decoration is testament to the essence of the Epic X Haute Horlogerie.Best replica watches
