Wempe commemorates the 40th anniversary of Fifth Avenue with the new Chopard Alpine Eagle Wempe Fifth Avenue Edition For Wempe, a watch and jewelry retailer founded in Germany, 2020 is a full anniversary. The dawn of ten years marks the 20 years since the launch of its By Kim Jewelry series. In the 30 years since Ruediger Albers, president of Wempe’s US division, the most important thing is that the brand has been in business in New York City for 40 years. To celebrate this third milestone, the luxury retailer has partnered with one of the most important brands, Chopard, to launch a new limited edition Alpine Eagle Wempe 5th Avenue Edition.
This replica men watch is based on the original Alpine Eagle sports luxury watch with date and time launched last year, with a new dial color and a special commemorative back cover to commemorate Wempe’s 40-year history on the famous Fifth Avenue in New York City . Wempe also shared some retro advertisements, announcing its location on Fifth Avenue and news about watches, emphasizing the competitiveness of the New York market about 40 years ago, which was earlier than the popularity of Wempe boutiques in the city.
The 41mm “Alpine Eagle Wempe Fifth Avenue Edition” case is made of Chopard’s ultra-durable, reflective Lucent A223 steel, which was specially developed during a four-year development process. The top of the case is engraved with brushed polishing, the style side is alternately polished, and there are eight fixing screws on the large frame. The multi-textured case finish is designed to evoke the sun set on the ice-covered glacier. The case is integrated into a three-link bracelet, the bracelet also has alternating brushed and polished treatments, and has a large right crown with stylized shoulders on both sides.
The dial is similar to the previous Alpine Eagle dial, although the difference in this special edition is that it uses silver and blue accents. On the outer edge, each hour has a small circle engraved with a square, while the main part of the inner part evokes the iris of the eagle named after the series. The applied Roman hour numerals mark the position of each quarter, and the applied rectangle appears at each intermediate hour. At 4:30 is a striking date window. Also worth noting are the Chopard brand logo at 12 o’clock and the special Wempe logo at 6 o’clock; passing these two hour and minute hands are two matching, rounded, round baton pointers, and A feather-balanced second hand.
Chopard replica 01.01-C movement is located in a 100-meter waterproof case, which is used throughout the Alpine Eagle series. The self-winding movement has passed the chronometer certification and has a 60-hour power reserve. The stylized Chopard signature rotor powers the mechanism. The sapphire back cover is printed with a commemorative stamp, which is printed with a stamp and an organic core, the most conspicuous of which is the large-scale “Fifth Avenue” style text printed on the exhibition crystal.
