New timepieces are constantly being released and unveiled to the general public. But, it’s not every day that a completely new technique is introduced into the art of horology. After decades of approaching diamond-setting in the same fashion, without much innovation. Patek Philippe Swiss Replica had an insight which now introduces a totally new approach to this craft.

Back in March, at Baselworld 2016 we saw many new releases by Patek Philippe like the “Patek Philippe World Time (Ref#: 5930G)” and this ladies timepiece, the “Patek Philippe Calatrava 7200/200R Replica”. At first glance it is clearly an elegant replica watch, with the diamond studded bezel, as seen before. But, as we zoom in we notice how the diamonds seem to pop out, with an extra bling. Something about it seems distinct in a subtle, but very visible way, which once detected seems to shine even brighter.

replica watches are always trying to bring along innovations to grab the public’s attention. Be it through the use of new or unusual materials. Or, distinct ways of presenting time on the dial. And though they have succeeded, there’s just so much that can be done, till it seems like repeating gimmicks. Brands even resort to creating new vocabulary, coining new terms for their materials, like Rolex with its “Everose” instead of “rose gold”; or Hublot with their sapphire case, or a leather dial. But, this time around we are in the presence of a true breakthrough in gem-setting innovation and a new term: “Flamme”.

For the longest time the most popular form of diamond-setting was the Tiffany-style prong, while the most coveted cut was the ideal-cut round brilliant. And this combination was held in great regard due to its “light return” factor. Because what makes diamonds truly shine and sparkle is linked to light reflecting off of diamonds inner facets and coming out through its top, for us to see.

Achieving this maximum reflection is best obtained by setting perfectly symmetrical round brilliant cut diamonds that consist of 52 facets mathematically calculated to reflect the most amount of light possible through the top and sides of the diamond. So, the more light a diamond receives, the more light it will reflect. The Tiffany technique achieved this by placing the diamond in claws high above the shank, which left the base exposed to allow more light to enter and then be reflected upwards and out its top.

For years that was the most effective form of gem-setting, but since the diamonds were set into the metal, a certain amount of light was always prevented from entering the diamonds base. Brands would traditionally try to acquire “Top Wesselton diamonds” known in the horology industry for having the highest color grade possible. But, Patek Philippe has finally found a work-a-round that yields better results.
