Quality Replica Watches Revealing the secret signatures

— Whether it is on movements or dials, brands, craftsmen and Rolex Replica watchmakers like to place their seal. In this way they authenticate, qualify and sign their creations.


Secret signatures


It is customary in art to sign your work. Besides being an integral part of the artist’s style, it is also a means of authenticating a work. Some Swiss Replica Watches brands have adopted this practice, with an approach that goes beyond mere branding. Signing a piece means more than just putting your name on it. It indicates the rarity of a Rolex Replica watches, its origin, its authenticity, using processes which by their very nature are discreet.

Paradoxically, some secret signatures are no such thing. They have become so well-known that they have lost their furtive status and become an integral part of a brand’s identity. Cartier, which was copied very early in its history, had initially thought up a strategy that has since become indispensable: the bar of the 10 or 8 in Roman numerals which decorates most of its dials is not solid: you can read the name Cartier in it.

Secret signatures can also be found on the movements themselves. The star of Vaucher Manufacture or the initials ARP of Audemars Piguet Renaud & Papi can be read on the calibres that these manufacturers supply to Richard Mille.

And who knows about the new signature on the creations of Bovet? The Virtuoso II manufacture calibres are surrounded by a maxim that the brand hardly talks about: they are “Faictes de mains de maistres. Pour servir ponctuels gentilshommes. Ce par quoi attestons longue valeur.” This expression, written in archaic French, translates as “Made by hands of masters. To serve punctual gentlemen. Whereby we attest long-standing value.”

Some high-end dials are signed, which is even harder to spot. For example, at Breguet, all Replica Watches UK with an engine-turned dial have an engraving on either side of the 6 o’clock position.

The brand shares with Blancpain the penchant for a transparent engraving on its enamel dials, which is almost invisible and thus very difficult to capture on a photograph.

The artistic crafts pieces by Vacheron Constantin that have a miniature or enamel painting bear the initials AP. It is Anita Porchet that signs these creations, the most delicate by the Geneva brand, and thus has her talent recognised by the brand according her a place on the face of its watches. For its Quai de l’Ile model, Vacheron Constantin even joined forces with a banknote printer to create a watermark under the sapphire crystal, the ultimate weapon against illicit reproductions.

Anything that can be seen can be copied. Each design element on a watch, its dial, its case, its movement, if recorded by someone with malicious intent, could be reproduced, counterfeited. The only truly effective remedy against copying, even of the high-quality kind, is even higher quality. The know-how should be so precious and applied in such detail that reproducing it destroys the copy’s reason for being: its affordable price. It is, therefore, the quality of work, combined with the widest possible awareness of the general culture of watchmaking, that can preserve brands, watches and customers from deceit.

Since 2012, Temporis Magazine – the leading Romanian watch magazine – organizes this event that includes 11 Prizes in 11 categories.

Dan Vardie, founder of Temporis, has also established the “Temporis Hall of Fame”: a unique gallery gathering the most important master watchmakers, inventors and designers of Haute Horlogerie.

This year, Mr. Roger Dubuis has been honored a place in the “Temporis Hall of Fame” alongside Philippe Dufour and Carole Forestier Kasapi.

“This gallery was created as a tribute to the genius of the people who dedicated their life to developing complications for watches and other Haute Horlogerie new developments,” said Dan Vardie.” From this perspective, Mr. Dubuis is a landmark in the world of watchmaking and has his rightful place in the “Temporis Hall of Fame”.

In response Mr. Roger Dubuis said: “I am incredibly honored to become a part of the “Temporis Hall of Fame”, alongside watchmakers of legend that I truly admire myself. I would like to personally thank Mr. Vardie, Temporis and everyone that worked hard long hours, supported me and our Manufacture, but most of all shared the same passion for fine watchmaking as I do.”

During the Gala, Mr Dubuis collected a second award this time for the  Hommage Double Flying Tourbillon with Hand-made Guilloché in pink gold. This exceptional timepiece, revealed in January 2014, won the “Temporis Watch of the Year 2014” award.

Carl F. Bucherer Exclusive laser signature

— To enhance its protection against counterfeiting, Carl F. Bucherer is implementing the innovative CLR-LIGA technology, which uses nanostructuring of individual components of the movement to ensure clear and simple authentication.


Carl F. Bucherer Manero Power Reserve


Carl F. Bucherer’s watches are the issue of a long tradition during which knowledge and skills in the crafts of watchmaking and jewelry-making were continually extended. The experience and development accumulated over more than 125 years go into each and every watch, making it an exemplar of watchmaking art rich in tradition. Our task now is to protect this heritage and to guarantee that the name of Carl F. Bucherer continues to exemplify the best quality. For this reason, protection against counterfeits that illegally display the name of Carl F. Bucherer has become essential. In future, the innovative CLR-LIGA laser technology will enable clear authentication of originals, unequivocally and at a glance.

 

Cutting-edge technology on the smallest scale

The Swiss company Mimotec SA, of Sion, has developed a new type of technology for certifying original products with an individual laser signature. Named CLR-LIGA, this technology provides even the smallest components with a diffractive surface structure that reflects light in the form of a unique signature. A complex 4-stage process of structural calculation, nanostructuring, photolithography and galvanization makes it impossible for counterfeiters to copy the laser signature.

Furthermore, this new technology stands out sharply against other methods of certifying original products. Unlike certificate cards or QR codes, authentication by CLR-LIGA technology needs no complex database of identification numbers, but can be recognized quickly and easily with a simple scanning device. Furthermore, the laser signature is actually integrated into the product, making unequivocal authentication possible even decades later, independently of technical systems.

 

Signed for eternity

Carl F. Bucherer places the highest value on the protection of its technical achievements, which are crucial to the company’s success. For example, the exceptional Manufacture caliber CFB A1000 with automatic winding is not only an example of outstanding watchmaking technology, but also an expression of the company’s philosophy, which continually forges ahead with progressive, ground-breaking developments. Carl F. Bucherer decided to implement CLR-LIGA technology to keep its own creations, which are invariably of the highest quality, clearly distinct from counterfeits and to make it even easier to tell the difference. The first model presented with an integral laser signature showing the Carl F. Bucherer logo is the Manero PowerReserve. From 2014, all other models powered by the CFB A1000 caliber will bear the detailed laser signature, unmistakably identifying them as original models from Carl F. Bucherer. It is not merely the signature of the brand name, but also the certificate of touchstone quality, innovation and design.
