In Depth The Replica Chopard Alpine Eagle Automatic Chronometer 41mm 298600-6001 Watches

Chopard has every right to enter the contemporary bracelet watch arena with a brand new product. Chopard comes to the plate with its Geneva-based pedigree, legitimacy through its luxury sport watch and haute horology Swiss Chopard L.U.C replica watch, and sex appeal through its various celebrity relationships and success with women’s jewelry. Consumers should not feel at all strange about a product from this brand competing in a space that also includes the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Patek Philippe Nautilus, Rolex Submariner replica, and some upcoming newer contenders each with their own bracelet watches.

The Watch Line

I wore the two-tone Alpine Eagle for a decent time but then waited some time to type up the review. When this happens, it means that I am not quite sure how to best sum up my experience with a watch, especially if I’ve had a positive experience with a known controversial product. Is the Alpine Eagle controversial? No more than any other new high-end luxury watch is, but it is the most important Chopard release of 2019, and probably a platform the company will continue to invest it for at least five to 10 years.

People who don’t like the Alpine Eagle have one major problem with it, and that is they feel it looks too much like the best Swiss Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica or other similar watches. That is it. People aren’t concerned about pricing or quality; their sole gripe with the Alpine Eagle is that it looks a bit too much like another popular watch. I’m not even sure most consumers see that as a bad thing.

Let’s look at this in a light that is the most favorable to Chopard, because the logic makes sense. First, let’s begin with an important rule in the luxury watch industry: Original and creative designs are almost universally shunned at first or criticized because they are new. Familiar designs are, by definition, much less creative but are more readily accepted by consumers. This is a hard and fast rule.

The Watch History

What can happen is that, with some time in the market, a novel design may become eventually adopted if it ends up being a good design, that is after time has tested it. Not all novel designs become classics, but all good novel designs have the potential to become classic if they are around long enough. In the world of design, while a simplification, this is a good rule.

Also, I want to put design originality into some context. It is extremely easy for people to claim that so and so copied Gerald Genta, and that such and such watch model is simply trying to look like an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica. If you look back at many bracelet watches from the 1970 and 1980s, they looked alike back then, as well. Perhaps there simply were not that many practical ways to produce a timepiece with an integrated bracelet. You might feel that the Alpine Eagle looks too much like a Royal Oak.

You’d be right that there is a resemblance, but that same resemblance is in the Chopard St. Moritz and countless other watches from that era. For the rest of the Alpine Eagle, Chopard simply took a cross-section of various manufacturing techniques at their disposal, along with some of their brand’s visual DNA, and tried to marry horology and jewelry polishing into a single satisfying product.

The Watch Bezel

What items in the bracelet watch category all have in common are a lot of shiny surfaces. Accordingly, the Alpine Eagle’s contrasting polished and brushed surfaces are mostly flat, which helps them play nicely with the light. The noticeable amount of light sparkle you want from a luxury timepiece is certainly part of the Alpine Eagle experience.

Chopard replica certainly lacked more than one opportunity to be original with the Alpine Eagle. There is nothing in the bracelet watch rule book that says you must have screws in the bezel or that you must have side flanks. Alas, the Chopard Alpine Eagle has both of those. They are certainly well done but they feel forced. I know that the original St. Mortiz watch had bezel screws, as well, but I’m just saying that since this design feature is used so often, it pays for a brand to do them in an extra-original manner to stand out.

The Watch Case

The 41mm-wide case is a good all-purpose size, and the case also manages to be under 10mm-thick, which allows for a slim wrist profile. I will say that the bezel seems like a bit of a scratch magnet. Aesthetically, it looks gorgeous, but I can’t help but feel that Chopard might want to consider a scratch-resistant metal alloy, ceramic, or other material for the bezel of some future Chopard Alpine Eagle models.

Worry about wear and tear on a watch are reserved for the most well-finished of timepieces. So that merely means I admire the considerable effort it takes to polish each Alpine Eagle. The steel is not normal 316L stainless steel but rather something called A223 Lucent Steel, which has a whiter color and polishes up uniquely. It certainly helps the replica Chopard Alpine Eagle reflect light in some very attractive ways.

Another thing of beauty on the Alpine Eagle is the bracelet. The visual design of it isn’t to everyone’s tastes, but the tight tolerances and overall engineering are admittedly impressive. Unfortunately, this is all work that started on the original St. Moritz watch, but for the Chopard Alpine Eagle, Chopard really put the bracelet on to steroids and into overdrive for a very sophisticated-looking and well-finished jewelry-style bracelet. It is probably my favorite part of the watch.

The Watch Bracelet

The bracelet closes elegantly with a mystery hidden deployant clasp. It would have, however, been nice to see a micro-adjust feature or similar system which, in addition to being convenient, would help Chopard have more functional advantages over the competition. Grand Seiko helped remind the watch community that everyone likes a good dial texture. Chopard created a new spiraling deep-cut sunburst-style dial that is colored gray for this Alpine Eagle replica model.

This may have been used on some older Chopard watches, and the texture does help give the watch dial a lot of character. The mixed index and Roman numeral hour markers are legible and filled with Super-LumiNova luminant, but they don’t have much personality beyond their functional value. The hands are solid, sporty, and well-proportioned. They also look like cousins made in the same factory as the latest generation replica AP Royal Oak hands with their angled edges.

The Watch Dial

One of the best features on the dial is the date window. Not that this is a very exciting complication, but you can see how Chopard clearly agonized over making it look as clean and harmonious as possible. The result is a custom date disc with a custom date font and color.

The window is a custom placement and with a custom shape. While we’ve all seen date windows before, Chopard went to the trouble of engineering a totally new one just so that it would look good for the Chopard Alpine Eagle replica. While some of the design ethos may get confused from time to time on the Alpine Eagle, the watch doesn’t suffer from a series of very attentive eyes making sure it stands out in the market.

The Watch Movement

Inside the replica Chopard Alpine Eagle is one of the brand’s in-house movements, the caliber 01.01-C. The thin 4Hz automatic movement has a long power reserve of 60 hours. You can also view the movement through the caseback window. The movement is perfectly respectable but it is not from the finest looking family of movements that Chopard produces. Outside of Ferdinand Berthoud, the Chopard L.U.C movements are the best- looking ones.

You can get a Chopard L.U.C watch replica for Alpine Eagle money, but the Alpine Eagle has the same base movement as those in the Classic Racing model. Knowing how lovely-looking the L.U.C movements are, it is hard not to want that level of finishing on the caliber 01.01-C. Again, assuming the Alpine Eagle collection becomes a hit, there is no reason why Chopard can’t play around with future models and include a variety of movements in it.
