For the attorney and watch collector H. Jane Chon, quarantine ushered in a major change in her approach to collecting. Despite being a self-proclaimed pack rat (“I feel like things are mine and I’m going to just sit on them,” she says), Chon became detached from many personal items during quarantine – save for her US AAA replica Cartier watches.
“I had to wear a watch every day because it felt very comforting,” she recalls. But in turn, that meant assessing whether each 1:1 best fake watches was earning its keep. “I had too much time to think about each watch and began asking: ‘Why do I have this? Why do I have money sunk in this, paying insurance on it?’ I work for a living and I suddenly thought, ‘No more safe queens.’”
At the height of the pandemic her collection underwent a major purge, with Chon selling more pieces in that time than in all her adult life, so far. “Quarantine made me a better person – or at least a more sensible one,” she says, with a collection today more focused on wearability. “If I’m not going to wear it, then I shouldn’t have it,” she adds. “Objectively speaking, it makes no financial sense holding Swiss online replica watches unless for investment. But I don’t see watches as an investment.” To that point, every one of her vintage cheap copy watches have been pressure-tested for water resistance. “I want to know that I can wear the watch if it’s raining,” she says.
Today her collection feels “uniquely me” at around 85% vintage or neo-vintage. It’s driven, first and foremost, by the quality of movements. “Mechanical Swiss made replica watches are something I understand and which I’m not afraid to handle myself,” says Chon, who calls herself a Luddite who has never felt comfortable with technology. “I can wrap my head around the mechanics – that’s always been part of my fascination. Watches are almost alive. I love that my vintage fake watches for sale actually tick.”
1997 Platinum Replica Cartier Tank à Guichet Watches
It was around 2015, in law school, when Chon’s replica watches wholesale collecting took a more serious turn. “Law school was hard, and I think I just grew up. It became about, ‘This is what I’m interested in and I don’t feel so apologetic about it,’” says Jane, who today, in addition to her day job, also works pro bono as counsel for the Horological Society of New York. In December 2018, she came upon this platinum high quality fake Cartier Tank à Guichet watches – surprisingly, as she had always deliberately shunned Cartier. “I made a face when people tried to show me a Panthère.” Still, to her surprise, she knew about the perfect super clone Cartier Tank à Guichet watches. “I was immediately struck by its design, timelessness, and presence. For such a little thing, it has so much presence – and it weighs a ton. This thing literally said: ‘Look. At. Me.’ I had to buy it despite myself.”
The watch also single-handedly raised the importance of design on Chon’s checklist of criteria, while at the same time, “sent me down the path of historical Cartier, which has been arduous and expensive.”
With its pared-back, minimalist styling, the Cartier Tank à Guichet replica watches wholesale store is one of three watches that Chon wears regularly. This one has been worn for a range of occasions, from the opera and black tie to “sweatpants when I go home to mom.”
2005 White Gold Fake Cartier Tank a Vis Wandering Hour
After her newfound confidence with the Cabaret, Chon purchased this top replica Cartier Tank a Vis watches in January 2021 from a collector who’s “in a different league to me,” she says. “He’s a collector, I’m an enthusiast.” But most of all, she was struck by his willingness to share his love of best quality Cartier fake watches. “I collect many things, and in my other hobbies people are not so generous with their time or knowledge – and I can say that emphatically.”
With its outré dragging hour display, the replica watches for women features a stunning hand-guilloche dial centered around a rosette pattern that’s typical of the Collection Privée Cartier Paris collection (which, from 1998-2008, saw Cartier revive some of its most daring archival designs). “It’s a CPCP piece, but that’s not why I loved it,” Chon says. “It’s beautifully made, from the guillochage and movement to the aesthetics. Plus it’s unusual – I’m attracted to the unique and rare. This watch speaks to me – and if a piece doesn’t, I don’t see the point.”
