Haute monde in the 1970s was a nomadic experience. One day you could be in Mustique, the next Marrakesh. The glitterati of the 1960s embraced Swinging London and New York in the 1950s, but eschewed any permanence. The 1970s fused the mid-century café society with the rebellious decade that followed and a new breed of peripatetic freedom. The '70s were a time of carefree libidinousness and brazen indulgence of one's sexual impulses. Demoiselles and dandies took to the dancefloors of Regines and Studio 54, in a trans-global gathering for the tribe.
The watch industry was also in turmoil during the 1970s. The Swiss watch industry was reeling from the initial salvos of a quartz crisis which would decimate the watchmaking business so drastically that by the end of the decade, 50,000 jobs would be lost. In this period of liminality and to express a spirit of freedom and reflect cultural changes,Richard Mille Replica Watches a watch designer conceptualised a new type of timepiece. It would be equally comfortable in the pool of Hotel du Cap or on your wrist, guiding an ingenue in Haston through the labyrinthine labyrinths of a sweaty after-hours boite.
The watch was suitable for both evening suits and birthday suits. Gerald Genta, a maverick genius, was the father of this integrated sports chic watch.
Alpine Eagle has two screws at every compass point and visible ears, as well as an integrated bracelet. It may be associated with other integrated bracelet watch, but its contemporary look is all its own.
The Royal Oak was designed by him for Audemars-Piguet in the year 1972. It marked the beginning of an entirely new era of this watch style as the ultimate symbol for rakish elan. The price of this slim steel watch, with its octagonal dial and white gold screws, was 3,300 Swiss Francs. This was equivalent to the cost of an old Jaguar at that time. While the initial reactions ranged from anger to confusion, it eventually made its mark when Gianni Agnelli adopted it and his legion Italian playboys. Girard-Perregaux quickly followed suit with the hexagonal bezel quartz-powered Laureato,Patek Philippe Replica designed by a Milanese designer. Patek Philippe followed with the Nautilus, designed by Genta in 1976. IWC then released its Ingenieur SL that same year. The Nautilus was an instant success. However, the Ingenieur suffered from a kind of identity crisis. It looked like a boy's watch but was sold as a scientific amagnetic watch. I'm a fan of the slim "Skinny Ingenieur". Vacheron Constantin introduced the 222 in 1977, designed by the then-hot upstart Jorg Hsek. It remains one of my favorite and most underrated vintage timepieces. In 1979, Yves Piaget created the Polo. It was a beautiful watch that integrated the bracelet, case and dial into the same design.
