Even though the watch retail landscape continues to evolve in 2020, a massive portion of luxury watch sales still come through the traditional path of brick and mortar stores and watch boutiques. German retail chain Wempe stands tall in this space as one of the world’s most famous and prolific see retailers, and November 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of its flagship 5th Avenue boutique in New York. To celebrate, longtime partner Chopard L.U.C Replica has assembled a special limited edition version of its incorporated bracelet Alpine Eagle sports watch available exclusively through Wempe boutiques. The Chopard Alpine Eagle Wempe 5th Avenue Edition provides a classically handsome new colorway to the design, along with a specialty nod to the renowned New York boutique.
Like regular variants of the Eagle, the 41mm instance of this Chopard Alpine Eagle Wempe 5th Avenue Edition is left in the brand’s proprietary Lucent Steel A223 stainless steel alloy. Lucent Steel A223 is a thinner, more reflective metal than the more common 316L stainless steel, leading to a brighter look on the wrist, and Chopard also claims improvements in scratch resistance over alloys like 316L. The case optimizes the properties of this alloy with a mixture of vertical brushing and broad shiny chamfers, along with the distinctive polished square center link connecting the integrated bracelet to the case. The look is much more or less completely carried over from the conventional Alpine Eagle here, with the exclusion of the sapphire display caseback. For your Wempe 5th Avenue Edition Replica Watches, the sapphire itself is printed using a wide”5th Avenue” with regard to the initial Chopard 5th Avenue watch made for the New York Wempe retailer on its debut in 1980.
