IWC has introduced a new squadron of Spitfires in its Pilot’s Watches collection debuting in 2019. For the first time, the Pilot’s replica Watch Automatic Spitfire features a self-winding movement from the new 32000 series manufacture movement in its case. We tested one of the first available pieces from the WatchTime archives, with original photos by Olaf Köster.
The name “Spitfire” first appeared at the turn of the millennium as a limited series of 1,000 fake Rolex watches, and in 2003, IWC began producing a series of pilot’s watches named after the legendary aircraft. With its pale dial, it was considered a “more elegant Mark”, but it was somehow overshadowed by the 14th incarnation of the classic pilot’s watch, which was named the Mark XV. A decade later, the old Spitfire – now a large pilot’s watch with a perpetual calendar and a dark dial – approached the classic Mark but disappeared inconspicuously under the wearer’s shirt cuff as an elegant three-hand watch with a pale dial. After the almost indistinguishable Mark XVIII of 2016 and the large pilot’s watch Spitfire of the same year, the symbiosis of the two seems almost logical, while the Mark quietly departs. The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII can still be found in IWC’s digital catalog, but only as of the “Le Petit Prince” version.
The 79320 movements (based on the ETA Valjoux 7750) are now ticking inside Le Petit Prince for $5,250. The new Pilot’s Watch Automatic Spitfire is equipped with the newly manufactured caliber 32110. IWC is offering two versions: the one we tested with a stainless steel case, black dial， and green fabric strap for $4,350, and another version with a bronze case, green dial, and dark brown calfskin strap for $4,900. These are not only the basic models of the Spitfire collection but also embody entry-level timepieces that lead to the world of IWC manufacture
In short, the watchmakers at Schaffhausen have put a modern movement fit for everyday use into a timeless replica Rolex watch, while making unobtrusive changes. As if the Spitfire had never existed in its original format, this new offering ably continues Mark’s legacy. It’s a pretty cool movie, and it certainly has something to do with the carefully restored Spitfire’s round-the-world flight from London in early August 2019, which IWC is supporting. The aircraft, built in 1943, flew more than 43,000 kilometers (26,719 miles) in a few months, visiting some 30 countries on the way. The green textile strap lined with leather seems to refer to the adventure of this round-the-world flight. The strap is inspired by the color code of vintage fighter planes and keeps the watch close to the wearer’s wrist – reliable, stylish, and maverick.
Some brands produce sports watches, others luxury jewelry watches, some belong to the category of affordable luxury, while others are among the most expensive modern timepieces. However, despite the differences between the exhibiting brands, some common trends can indeed be seen in the new watches launched at this year’s Watches and Wonders show.
Perhaps the most obvious trend at Watches and Wonders is the widespread use of green. Historically, green has been one of the more adventurous color choices on watches, with most brands usually opting for something blue in order to add a slightly more adventurous color option to their lineup. However, just as we saw countless replica watches with blue dials last year, this seems to be the year of the green dial, with a significant number of participating brands have decided to include the color somewhere in their new releases.
Perhaps the most notable new release featuring green is the Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5711 is the Patek Philippe Nautilus, a watch that is making a triumphant comeback. While the recently discontinued model featured a blue dial, the new model comes with a striking olive green dial. Rumor has it that Patek Philippe will only produce this version of the Nautilus for about a year, as a celebration of the brand’s fan-favorite Reference 5711, which it announced plans to discontinue prior to fake Watches & Wonders.
With that in mind, Patek Philippe is not the only brand to incorporate the green dial trend, as many other well-known manufacturers have also chosen to use green for their new offerings this year. Chief among them is TUDOR, which has decided to showcase green on its Black Bay Fifty-Eight model in solid gold.
Green is not usually seen on Tudor replica watches, as it is the corporate color of its famous sister company Rolex. However, the brand is clearly confident enough in this slightly unconventional hue to adopt it (by a wide margin) on the most expensive watch in its current collection. Crafted in solid yellow gold and featuring a green dial and matching green bezel, the new Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight 18k is the best of the new additions to the Tudor collection.
Eventually, most of the branding on the dial was eventually taken over by Rolex, and the watchmaker stamped the dial with the Tiffany logo at its factory in Geneva, Switzerland. For decades, Tiffany-branded fake Rolex watches could be sent to either company for service and repair, but in the early 1990s, Rolex decided to stop supplying co-branded watches with a warranty if the dial imprint was done at Tiffany & Co.’s factory. As a result, Tiffany & Co. stopped selling Rolex watches and the two companies have since parted ways.
As mentioned earlier, many of the watches with Tiffany dials were pre-printed by Rolex, although Tiffany & Co. did put its name on a number of Rolex dials. Since both replica Rolex and Tiffany & Co. were printing dials with the Tiffany name on them, various inconsistencies can be found in Tiffany branded dials, and these details can vary depending on when the dial was produced and which company did the printing.
To further complicate matters, because Tiffany & Co. did not have a single location for all of its dial printing, there is a wider range of inconsistencies among the various Tiffany dials that exist today. As a result, correctly identifying authentic pieces can be an extremely difficult task.
In addition, the dual signature Tiffany and Rolex dials are not unique to any one particular model. Since Tiffany is an official Rolex retailer, there are many different examples of the Rolex replica with Tiffany co-signed dials in most of the Rolex product line.
Due to the inconsistencies in the dial printing process and the resulting inconsistencies between dials Rolex Tiffany dials are among the most easily counterfeited dials in the vintage watch world Tiffany & Co. printed their name on watches from several different manufacturers, and since the font, color, spacing, and even placement of different dials vary, it takes a keen eye and knowledge of vintage watches to spot a counterfeit Tiffany dial understanding.
In the mid-1960s, Rolex supplied the Comex with a specially equipped Submariner model to test helium escape valves. Today, these “Rolex Comex” watches are both expensive and rare. The Sea-Dweller went into mass production in 1967 and was equipped with a helium escape valve. The new watches are capable of withstanding pressures up to 610 meters deep. Currently measuring 43mm in diameter and 15mm in height, with the iconic Rolex Cyclops date magnifier, the watch looks like an enlarged Submariner, but with a continuous 60-minute scale on the diver’s bezel and red lettering on the dial.
Until 2008, when the Deep Sea model was introduced, the maximum depth limit remained unchanged and the water resistance was 3,900 meters. Rolex has developed a new case design to ensure that the watch is not too big for the huge water-resistance. The system is surrounded by the 904L steel that fake Rolex uses for the case. The titanium case back is pressed into the inner bezel via a threaded 904L steel back ring.
These materials have been carefully selected to exhibit strength and flexibility at the same time, and they are not prone to deformation or breakage under pressure. The complex design makes the 44mm by 18mm case both striking and 10% thinner than other cases of similar construction. The Deep Sea watch is designed to withstand depths of up to 4,900 meters. Each replica watch is subjected to rigorous underwater testing at this 25% higher pressure.
In 2012, another important underwater project was ushered in – the Deep Sea Challenge. And Rolex is once again a partner. Filmmaker James Cameron was the first person to successfully reach the deepest depths below sea level since the first famous expedition in 1960.
The second Greenwich me zone can be displayed in a variety of ways, providing watchmakers with a wide range of options. A fake watch with a second time zone display can make it the center of attention and loudly announce that its owner is a world traveler. But the additional display can also be discreetly hidden, only appearing when the wearer commands it to. There is an intuitive and easy-to-read 12-hour dial, as well as a clear 24-hour scale and various unconventional displays. The target group plays an important role, as the second time zone can provide valuable services to different types of people.
The most famous representative of this type is certainly the Rolex GMT-Master, which was developed in 1955 in accordance with a list of requirements specified by Pan American World Airways. Only after the introduction of a new movement by Rolex in 1982, the position of the 12-hour hand could be reset in one-hour increments. The time in the third zone could also be displayed by rotating the bezel, corresponding to the 24-hour hand, but this meant that the time in the second zone could not be read until the bezel was returned to its original position.
Arguably the most eye-catching and original version offered by Rolex replica is the model with the distinctive blue-red 24-hour scale. This colorful model, which its fans have nicknamed “Pepsi”, shows the time from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in red for daytime hours and blue for nighttime hours. In the past, this color scheme was used to quickly distinguish between day and night time. Rolex’s sister brand Tudor began using the same color scheme on the Black Bay GMT in 2018 and has floated with the retro wave, while Rolex has been building its classics for more than half a century with only minor visual modifications.
A low profile is also a feature of the second time zone on the new Leica L2, and it doesn’t have a second hand at all. Instead, you turn the second crown and rotate a 12-hour ring around the perimeter of the dial until the normal hour hand points to the correct time in the second time zone.
Those who prefer to fly to London or New York rather than the South Seas can also find the right second-time zone watch that won’t look gaudy when worn in a café or museum. The replica watches that tell the time in the second time zone are available in a wide variety of styles. There is a design for every occasion. Watch brands are constantly inventing new ways to display additional time zones, such as Leica’s recent surprise for watch lovers with its rotatable scale.
Often regarded as the quintessential Rolex watch, the Datejust has been around since 1945 and continues to be the brand’s mainstay model.
The Oyster Perpetual Datejust is the ideal luxury replica watch to wear just about all the time with its straightforward time and date dial, round Oyster case, and robust automatic movement.
Even though the Datejust comes in a vast assortment of metals, styles, and sizes, one of the best picks currently is the Datejust 41 ref. 126300 in stainless steel.
The Datejust 41 is a rather new collection, first released in 2016, and it has everything you’d want from the classic 36mm Datejust but in a larger, more contemporary size.
Simple steel case, steel Oyster bracelet, silver dial, and smooth bezel are not only ideal for everyday wear but will remain fresh for decades to come.
As one of the world’s leading luxury brands, the timeless value of Rolex replica watches has been in the making for a century thanks to a range of iconic designs paired with top-notch technical performance.
The famous green Rolex submarine is a polarizing view of the brand’s famous diving watch. Although its diameter remains the same as that of the classic model and other designs, at 40mm, it is by no means your average Submariner. Rolex developed the Submariner in 1953. When it was unveiled at the Basel watch fair, the Submarine was the first in the world to offer a 100m waterproof watch. This is also the first professional series diving watch produced by Rolex. The first model was made of stainless steel, and there was no date mechanism on the dial.
The next popular upgrade came in the form of ref. 16610 in the late 1980s, which was the first fake rolex Submariner to run on the Cal. 3135 movement. Decades ago, a variation was launched under the reference number 16610LV to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner and was fitted with a stunning green aluminum bezel insert, earning it the nickname “Kermit” among collectors. Moreover, it was the first Submariner to consist of a ‘Maxi’ dial with larger hands and hour markers.
The Rolex Hulk ref. 116610LV also entered the market as Rolex was rolling out its fashion “Maxi” dial, which is over deserving of that name with bigger hour markers and wider hands with white gold surrounds. The replica rolex Hulk dial features a charming metallic sunburst finish in Rolex’s iconic green hue that radiates from the middle of the hands. The hands and hour markers are also made with Rolex’s Chromalight luminescent material, which emits a long-lasting blue glow in the dark.
The “Super Case” of the Rolex Hulk gives the same 40mm diameter as its 5-digit Submariner predecessors, only now it concludes much thicker lugs and crown guards. The result is a more angular and modern aesthetic that provides an overall larger appearance on the wrist. The shell also maintains a relatively thin profile, just over 12mm thick, giving the wearer the best in terms of bold appearance and comfort.
With a newer case came an upgraded Oyster bracelet. This time, it’s decorated with solid end links, solid center links, and a machined Oysterlock clasp outfitted with an ingenious Glidelock wetsuit extension system. The Glidelock system features a particular design that allows the wearer to adjust the length of the bracelet up to 20mm in 2mm increments, without the use of tools. In addition to diving, this feature also has practical daily use, as it can also adjust the bracelet to accommodate the wrist as it fluctuates throughout the day.
While it’s undoubtedly an intriguing watch to examine and wear, the 116610LV wasn’t almost as popular among collectors when it was initially unveiled in 2010 as it is today. However, the fake rolex Hulk ref. 116610LV is in very high demand with multi-year waiting lists at retailers, making it almost impossible to buy brand-new without spending a significant amount of time on a waitlist.

So far, we have launched watches that offer superior service on land (Tudor and Breitling), at sea (Panerai), in the air (Oris) and even in space (Omega). However, if you want a watch that is easy to wear under any circumstances and has enough life to last into the next generation, the Rolex replica is your watch of choice.
When it was introduced in 1945, it was the first self-winding waterproof wristwatch with a date feature. Its aesthetics have changed little over the past few years, but its movement and materials remain at the forefront of what is possible. Today’s date offers five different sizes and enough varieties of metal, bezel type, dial color, and bracelet style to appeal to anyone’s taste. Its basic structure may be simple, but the different connotations it contains make it one of the most versatile men’s luxury watches on the market.
For many of the brand’s fans, replica rolex Datejust is absolutely at the heart of Rolex, even more so than other big names like submariner, gmt-master or daytona. Perhaps the most successful all-round athlete of all time, it can be low-key, it can be unreserved grandstanding, it can be anything in between. Perfect for the classic look and modern technology, the Rolex Datejust may be the only watch you need.
Buying Guide for Vintage Rolex Stainless Steel
Although both the CAL 1520 and the CAL 1530 are designed differently from lots of other Rolex fake watches, in that they feature bar regulators and flat hair spring rather than the coil between Breguet and the Micro Stella system, the real difference between calix 1520 and 1530 is comparatively small. Both movements promise the same timing specifications, with the main difference being the amount of jewellery used in each movement — mainly to reduce import and export duties. Only 17 pieces of jewelry were sold to models in the United States, compared with 25 and 26 pieces for replica watches in other parts of the world.
The puzzling part begins with the overlap between the Ref.5500 air-King and the Oyster Perpetual and Explorer. For a while, all three used the same case and movement (although the Oyster Perpetual version comes with an chronometer at the 1530). Thus the search for the Ref. 5500 Rolex will appear on the dial with any of these three names. Moreover, to make things more complicated, the Ref. 550X series appeared almost at the same time — ref. 5504(36mm steel model), ref. 5501(two-color) and ref. 5502(gold-plated). The good news is that the Ref. 5500 is not only the cheapest Rolex AIR-King reference, but it is also one of the cheapest vintage Rolex replica watches ever made, making it an ideal gateway into brand ownership.
Rolex, one of the oldest watch brands, has been making quirky and creative watches, if not always. I firmly believe that this record comes not just from the “because we can” approach, but from the “because we must” approach. This is an important question to ponder, not just for us replica watch aficionados, but also for Rolex’s competitors.
All too often, I see how convenient it is to look at high-end watchmaking as the proving grounds for technical refinement, engineering capability, and manufacturing complexity in isolation. Creative watch designs, by contrast, tend to have a “take it or leave it” element that is almost considered irrelevant if there is enough technical importance to divert attention from the tedium caused by uncreative representations.
That said, I truly believe that the extent to which a brand is creatively exciting matters to every one of us watch-lovers — we just don’t talk about it as much as we do about pricing, watch movement performance, or the controversies around design elements. A brand’s ability to occasionally take itself less seriously is a rare and important treat. If a brand isn’t relevant in its design, it will soon grow irrelevant in other ways, as well.
We must stick to the point of discussing this new Daytona and not go off-topic too much, but what is a thought-provoker if not such a watch from fake rolex? It makes me think of other brands I really appreciate and have owned previously: IWC and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Two mighty-awesome brands with fancy factories, rich histories, and more established watch collections than one could shake a stick at… and just see how much less time we have recently spent talking about these two.
They, and other established brands like Blancpain and Breguet, enjoy less time in the limelight than they used to just several years ago. And while they can survive on luxury conglomerate money and by selling bucketloads of basic Reversos, vintage-inspired “novelties,” and the rest, wouldn’t you agree that there used to be so much more buzz when we had charming Master Compressors, crazy Extreme LABs, high-tech Ingenieurs and the like?
Sure, we might have ended up buying base Reversos and classic IWC Pilots just the same, but we have contemporary fake rolex watches that attract us to these brands, not just ambassadors, partners, and products that live exclusively in the past. However, my point is that they should not be limited to technical excellence, but should also focus on modern aesthetics.
The Explorer has been a staple of Rolex since the early 1950s, both as the brand’s oldest sports watch still in production and as its most understated product. As a longtime Rolex model specification, explorer has undergone some significant modifications in its nearly 70-year history, but still retains its basic design features. These changes and updates will ultimately determine which resource manager reference is right for you. So, with that in mind, here are three things to know before buying a Rolex pathfinder.
When the replica rolex explorer made its official debut in 1953, the watch featured a 36mm steel Oyster case to house its now-signature black dial with 3/6/9 numerals. Rolex stuck to those dimensions for the next five-plus decades until 2010, when the brand launched the Explorer ref. 214270 with a 39mm case. So, current-production Rolex Explorers have 39mm cases, while discontinued and vintage Explorer references have 36mm cases.
On the other hand, if you prefer to buy a 39mm Explorer, then you’ll have to look to reference 214270, which runs on the Caliber 3132 movement. However, it’s significant to know that there are, in fact, two dial versions available within the same Explorer 214270 model, which collectors like to call MK1 and MK2.
Rolex introduced Explorer ref. 14270 as the modern replacement for the long-running Explorer ref. 1016. The watch brought about a handful of enhancements that had become standard on many other fake rolex watches, such as sapphire crystal to replace acrylic crystal, applied white gold lume-filled indexes to replace painted indexes, glossy black dials to replace matte black dials, and Caliber 3000 movements to replace the previous Caliber 1570. It’s also worth noting that early explorers 14270 used tritium to glow, and Rolex switched to Ruminova in the mid-1990s.
The shocking news that came with the introduction of Explorer 214270 was its 39mm case size. However, many were quick to point out that the phone was too short to fit a larger case, and because the minute hand didn’t reach the minute hand track, it couldn’t dial. Some claim the Rolex just used the same phone from the 36mm explorer.
Regardless if you decide upon a 36mm or a 39mm version, an MK1 dial or an MK2 dial, all the explorer models you get are durable stainless steel Rolex sports replica watches with classic and discreet designs that have experienced nearly 75 years of history.
