In this, the final installment of our three-part series in partnership with Grand Seiko, we take a look at the many hands that work together to make a finished Grand Seiko Spring Drive wristwatch. Grand Seiko replica watches are famous for showing enormous attention to detail in every part of the watch, from the hands, to the dial, to the assembly of the movement, to the hand-polishing of the cases of each watch, and here you’ll get a look at both the processes and the people behind them.
One of the most truly remarkable aspects of Grand Seiko fake watches manufacturing is the degree to which many of the techniques involved are still largely manual and artisanal, and in this video you’ll see some of these techniques first hand. You’ll see indexes for the dial being diamond cut on a special tool by a craftsman who examines each one for the right degree of polish and reflectivity. The blued steel seconds hands are heat-blued individually; a process that requires close attention to achieve the correct shade of cornflower blue. Dial manufacturing for many of the most popular Grand Seiko dials, including the famous “Snowflake” and radially brushed dials, involves many steps and a high degree of very skilled, hands-on work as well; the rotary brush for making the dial is made by hand, with the hair-fine wires meticulously trimmed by hand.
Although it takes many hands to make Grand Seiko copy watches UK, and although watchmaking is inherently and necessarily a collective enterprise, there is one aspect of a Grand Seiko watch which is in the hands of a single individual: the assembly of the movement. In this installment, you’ll see a watchmaker assembling one of the most complicated Grand Seikos: the Spring Drive Chronograph, which takes advantage of Spring Drive technology to provide an elapsed-time measuring tool with Spring Drive’s unique, smoothly gliding seconds hand. Assembly of a Spring Drive chronograph – a vertical clutch, column wheel self-winding chronograph which, like other Spring Drive watches, requires very high precision watchmaking – is done by a single watchmaker.
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Geophysic collection replica watches UK hark back to a time when nuclear tensions were taut between the Eastern and Western Bloc. A time in 1958, at the height of the Cold War, when a period of collaborative worldwide scientific experiments and excursions took place. Dubbed the International Geophysical Year. One of the more notable expeditions of the time, was a pioneering cross under the North Pole, by the first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus.
On the wrist of USS Nautilus commander – Captain William Anderson – was the high-tech (at the time) purpose-built Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic, designed to cope with the strong magnetic forces of the region. Now one of the most sort after vintage watches on the market. In 2014, JLC released a series of limited edition tributes to the original. Leading to the release of the Geophysic True Second in 2015. As a further tribute to the fathomless depths explored during the Geophysical Year. JLC has released a new limited edition Geophysic True Second. With its tell-tale tick passing on a backdrop of a radiant ocean blue dial.

Essentially this new limited edition is identical to the previous versions. It has a 39.6mm stainless-steel case Jaeger-LeCoultre fake watches with alternating brushed and polished finishes. Triple faceted baton style hands remain and are lume-filled. Matching dots of lume still surround the outer flange of the dial. The cross-hair centre is reminiscent of location-mapping instruments and can also be found on the original 1958 Geophysic. And long slender indices mark out the hours, with a date at 3 o’clock. The biggest and only real change is the mesmerizingly blue sunburst dial.
Flipping it over and we’re also greeted by another familiar face. The Jaeger-LeCoultre automatic Calibre 770. With a solid pink gold rotor and a 40-hour power reserve. It’s equipped with a non-circular Gyrolab balance wheel that demanded years of research to reduce the effects of air friction to greatly increase accuracy. An hour hand that can be independently adjusted from the minute hand. And of course, a true second complication that endows the second hand with its assured single-second jumps.
