Some of the best replica watch brands today have become creators of expressive wrist-based art as much as they are timepieces. Many of my favorite contemporary timepieces are those with very specific cultural or character references. What makes the better of these watches great is their ability to both attractively suggest a theme and serve as a quality timepiece. Swiss SevenFriday Replica watch is no stranger to expressive watchmaking — arguably, the entire brand is about just that. Some of its themed watches focus on colors, materials, or other products in existence. And then for others, they get a bit more wild, and yet entirely refined. The SevenFriday T1/01 Cocorico is just such a watch. And I think it came out really fun.
The theme of the SevenFriday Cocorico is to combine the brand’s T1 collection case with a modern, masculine interpretation of the Gallic Cockerel iteration of the chicken. There are a lot of animal-themed watches out there, as well as animal-themed watches that present a particular cultural manifestation of how an animal can enter pop culture. Here, we have not just a chicken-inspired wristwatch, but one that expresses the chicken in its most flattering form as an element of French hero personality mythos. The male chicken is a symbol of not just assuredness and strut, but also volume and flamboyance. In other words, there are many fancy chickens out there and cocks in culture, but the French rooster is a unique facet in European culture and the SevenFriday Cocorico watch happens to celebrate it. sevenfriday copy watch price
I would not be so excited about a chicken watch if it were not so nicely designed. SevenFriday did a really nice job with the dial to make it look legible but also original. Use of gradient colors and laser-cut dials for an effective skeletonization effect really end up layering well together. It is true that the Cocorico rooster on the rear of the watch is a bit easier to see than the one on the front (the sunglasses and artistic abstraction make it a bit tough to spot), but the overall dial is done so well it is easy to forgive this small quirk.
The SevenFriday T1 series is really straightforward as a watch compared to some other SevenFriday models. The dial has only the time, with traditional hour and minute hands. The movement inside the watch is the Japanese Seiko NH70, which operates at 3Hz with 40 hours of power reserve. The design of the face is, however, playful, mixing artistic elements with looks into the movement and a lot of traditional watch dial features, such as a very legible silver minute scale ring and a novel-looking hour marker ring closer to the center of the dial.
How the T1/01 Cocorico plays with color is interesting. The entire watch clearly celebrates the red, white, and blue theme of the French flag. It also has a 45mm-wide, rounded-square case with a blue PVD-coated siding. How the red, white, and blue colors are integrated into the overall composition are really smart — with the overall effect of the watch being that is is blue with some small red and white accents. The case is further water-resistant to 30 meters and has a K1 mineral crystal over the dial.
