In the end it was noted Lebanese jeweler and ardent Omega replica watches for sale collector Claude Sfeir who won the battle, but in a magnanimous show of generosity, Robert Manoukian, also Lebanese by nationality, kindly added another CHF300,000.- to the adjudicated price for the profit of the foundation.

The watch is powered by the manual winding F.P. Journe Caliber 1403 with 26 jewels, an 18k gold main back plate and a 42 hour power reserve. However, unusually, the real story of this Caliber, aside from the tourbillon, is the remontoir and the dead seconds. The remontoir is controlled by a spinning vane, which is powered every second by the mainspring, which provides a perfectly evened out power supply to the balance assembly.

This is an advanced system for optimizing the running rate of the movement and in tandem with the one minute tourbillon, should provide as close to zero deviation and zero error timekeeping as possible from a mechanical movement. Owning a replica watches wholesale like this is a privilege afforded to only very few collectors, since producing a watch like this requires a master to produce it.

The “�l�gante” in Titanium and rubber also sold for a record price of CHF55’000. These two unique Swiss fake watches have been especially made in the colors of Action Innocence, an organization established in 2003 in Geneva. Each year, Action Innocence signs an agreement with the Child Health Service and Youth (SSEJ), under the aegis of the Department of Public Instruction (DIP), allowing them to visit the Geneva public schools.

The prevention program in cludes “Surfing with care on the Internet” and is composed of different modules tailored to the target audience: from children to teens so as to teach them to surf with care on the internet.
