I appreciate this time of year: the devices, the equipment, the food, the festivities, and, of course, the latest statements. And there is one model that never fails to excite during this joyous season is a replica IWC, with the Schaffhausen manufacturer growing up for 2019 with the starts of what looks like another amazing year for the Pilot’s fake watch.
The IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Spitfire Edition is the first flight off the deck. Dedicated to the “Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight” project, which next year will find a nicely restored Supermarine Spitfire take off from London, covering more than 43,000 kilometres over several months on a round-the-world flight.
As fans of the IWC replicas, the regular readers will know that this isn’t the first model to bear the Spitfire, or for that matter, the Timezoner name. And this version is based on a chronograph we first saw back in the past two years. However, this is the very first to combine IWC’s patented Timezoner mechanism with a completely in-house made IWC movement – the calibre 82760 with automatic Pellaton winding, ceramic components, and a 60-hour power reserve. Basically, the watch is a three-handed Pilot’s replica watches with a 24-hour display in the top half of the dial, a date at 3 o’clock, and a world time bezel. This bezel automatically adjusts the hour hand, 24-hour display, and the date, to the corresponding city’s time zone as marked at 12 o’clock only when rotated.
The engraved case-back combines with a sapphire crystal front that is secured against displacement by drops in air pressure, to offer 60 meters of water resistance. The stainless-steel case measures 46mm across by 15.2mm high and combines with a black dial and a green textile band to remind you of the color scheme inside the cockpit of its namesake aircraft. However, the version is very much limited in quantity.
There is a great work in our market, which is a big fake Rolex watch, also the ultimate diving watch, and we nicknamed Deepsea king I think. Previous of this Rolex D-Blue 116660 are mainly produced by Noob and BP factory, Noob’s version is the best. But here I am going to introduce the one from another new rising factory, which is AR. Compared with Noob 116660, this luxury watch from AR factory has two big advantages which make it the most popular Rolex Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA D-Blue 116660 in the market, one is its 904L stainless steel material, the other is the real Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement it is decorated with. Let’s talk more details here.
Genuine Rolex DEEPSEA Sea-Dweller D-Blue is well-known for its gradient dial, which is blue/black. However, the gradient D-Blue dial rolex replica watch has the same tone as genuine, it looks very natural. Like the real models, inner bezel ring features black engravings of “ORIGINAL GAS ESCAPE VALVE” and “RING LOCK SYSTEM”. The color transition from black to black is very natural. Dial color is ocean particularly it features the green word “DEEPSEA”. Other printings on the dial are in white. Hour markers and hands are filled with white luminescence, and they will give out strong blue light in the dark. There is silver edge for each hour marker and hand, which looks more three-dimensional, round markers have the same size and arc degree as genuine watch, a small date window is positioned at 3 o’clock, and date font is centered and has the same size and thickness as real one.
AR is the first factory to use 904L stainless steel on their fake Rolex, this time they also make the 116660 with 904L steel, compared with 316L used on most replica watches, 904L stainless steel does better in corrosion resistance. Case back is special, the edge uses tooth design, black engravings will never fade, the key point is its round part on the center is brushed, therefore, it gives us a cozy wearing feeling. AR factory shows the super drawing process on its 44mm case, case corner is polished round and smooth, you can feel no difference compared it with the originals.
As for the bezel, the black ceramic bezel features silver markers, which are in same tone as those bezel markers on genuine. Bezel diving markers are also engraved in a suitable depth, compared with other DEEPSEA D-Blue fake watches from some other small factories, and ARF really upgraded the bezel a lot. About the bezel pearl that is set on a big triangle mark, it looks plump but not very domed, so this is closer to genuine bezel pearl.
Eventually, the watch is decorated with a Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement, and it is a real ETA, not a replica. But the price is still affordable. Different form the watch from Noob with an Asian ETA or Super Copy 3135.
Summer is coming, which means you need a replica watch that can transition from work to the high seas and beach seamlessly. As far as we are concerned, there’s really no other fake watch for this than the Ladies Yachtmaster. With its gorgeous face and handsome, durable frame, this popular replica rolex watch is going to sit pretty on your wrist when you enjoy the sun and the beach.
You’ll turn heads this summer sporting this 29mm 18k yellow gold and stainless Yachtmaster 169623 with an Automatic 2235 movement. Nicknamed the ‘Yellow Rolesor,’ this fake watch features a luminescent white dial and stunning black and gold hour markers with Mercedes hands. The two-tone look is both dressy and relaxed, meaning it’s going to transition seamlessly from work attire to airy beachwear.
With a Yachtmaster, it’s all about the details. You already know this fake watch is going to fare the seas well, this model sporting an Oyster Case with waterproof screw-down crown. You should also take a better look at the dial to admire the bold red font that reads Yacht-Master, adding a bit of sporty flare back into this elegant timepiece.
The appearance of this Ladies Rolex Yachtmaster is undeniably cool for the heat of summer. Crafted from Rolex’s patented Rolesium, which is blend of 904L stainless steel and 950 Platinum, this watch not only looks amazing but is crafted with the highest-quality metals on the market. In keeping with the sporty but clean look, they’ve also used platinum on the dial which is offset by white hour markers and black Mercedes hands that pop. If you look close, you’ll also notice they’ve added a red second hand that matches the red Yacht-Master inscription above the 6 o’clock marker.
As you can see, these replica watches are really going to pull its weight this summer as you transition from the sea to the pool to the beach. This Oyster Case will withstand depths of 330 feet, and the matching oyster bracelet with Oysterlock clasp is going to stay secure and protect on your watch, even during the roughest seas.
While this is the same model as the two-toned we featured at the top, this mid-sized watch with 904L stainless and 18k gold is an eye-catcher all its own. The face of this watch is also that charming Slate color with luminescent white and gold hour markers and Mercedes hands that just pop.
We should also note the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a waterproof screw-down crown for resistance to depths of up to 330 feet that make this watch so durable. There’s also the signature rotating timing bezel that’s a feature on all the Yachtmasters, permitting you to sync with Regatta start times or measure how far you’re going while sailing. You won’t want to take this watch off after the beach or the sea with all its beauty and functionality,
As we all know that Breitling never stops refining and improving their products, some of the areas in which we have seen the significant progress are the new materials that are being applied for use in their watches.
Then contemporary Breitling replica watches utilize some of the most advanced materials on this planet to aid in the company’s ongoing pursuit of building the best mechanical wristwatches possible from scratch-proof ceramic bezels to ferromagnetic alloy movement components. However, despite all of these particular, proprietary machines and materials that get used at the fake Breitling factory in Geneva, one of the most interesting aspects of the Rolex production process are the type of stainless steel that is used for the cases and bracelets of their watches.
Most timepieces use 316L stainless steel, which is more than adequate for the huge majority of applications and environments one is likely to encounter in everyday life. However, Breitling makes up his mind to use a unique blend of 904L stainless steel for their watches, known as “Oystersteel” that is highly resistant to a number of different forms of corrosion.
Most commonly used in the aerospace and chemical industries, 904L is hard to shape and often needs the use of specialized equipment to properly cut and machine. Even though it is more expensive and difficult to use, 904L can take on a higher polish than traditional stainless steel alloys and possess a number of anti-corrosive properties that are somewhat similar to those of precious metals.
Breitling’s use of 904L stainless steel dates all the way back to 1985, when they became the first wristwatch manufacturer to use it on a large scale in their timepieces. Initially, during the late 1980s, 904L stainless steel was only used for the Rolex Sea-Dweller line of deep-sea diving watches; however in 2003, the replica Rolex switched all of their lines of watches over to 904L stainless steel, due to the superior corrosion resistance that it offered.
More traditional forms of stainless steel, such as 316L are quite corrosion resistant; however small amounts of saltwater and other minerals can get trapped in the tiny spaces between the case-back threads, and over an extended period of time, can act as a catalyst for corrosion. The replica Breitling found that stainless steel watches exhibited more premature wear on their case-back threads than what was observed on their precious metal counterparts, and so the decision was made to switch to 904L stainless steel for all of their lines of watches.
Although “Oystersteel” is possibly just another name for the 904L stainless steel manufactured by Breitling in-house foundry, it is undeniable that 904L stainless steel offers additional benefits over most traditionally used stainless steel varieties.
There was much mystery about this model when it was pulled out of a large green box during our appointment with a fake Rolex. Besides, to be honest, we were too caught up in the moment, too shinning by the diamonds, to take it all in at the time.
It’s well-known as the Submariner Date fake watch, a variant on the white gold, blue-dialed ‘Smurf’, but while it might look like the stones are the only addition at the first glance, the dial is totally different. Not only is it darker, and has a sunray effect, but there’s a notable omission. Look closer. Have you spotted it yet? That’s right, there’s no depth rating. On a typical sub, there’s a line underneath the ‘Submariner’ text that says the watch is good to ‘1000ft = 300m’; not so here. And there’s also no specific mention of depth rating on the press release, though it does specify an Oyster case and Triplock crown. But it bears the Submariner name, so you’d expect it to be 300m, though it’s not made explicit, perhaps something to do with all those diamonds.
When it comes with the stones, the bezel is set, in Rolex’s typically exceptional fashion, with 27 dark blue baguette sapphires, 11 baguette-cut diamonds at the hour markers, and a triangle-cut diamond at 12 o’clock. And even though this isn’t your typical tool watch, the bezel functionality is still there; the first nine sapphires are light blue, representing the classic dive bezel graduated for decompression times. The case and crown guard are further set with 92 brilliant-cut diamonds. There are nearly 3.90 carats of sapphire and a total of 1.72 carats of diamonds on the 116659 SABR, all selected and set by the Rolex gemmology laboratory.
It’s fairly unusual to see a piece like this come from the Rolex replica, considering the tool watch nature of the Submariner. It’s exactly the juxtaposition of the highly jeweled and the professional watch that is the most important thing about this special — and very limited — production replica watch.
The Rainbow Daytona replica Rolex watch was first launched back in 2012 in both white and yellow gold. It was manufactured in VERY limited quantities, hit cult status quickly and has almost tripled in value since then. This year the fake Rolex shocked us all by dropping the rose version, and it is spectacular in the metal. The replica watch is very similar to the two previous versions, but the case and bracelet are a new metal and there are distinguished indexes at the hours, which despite not seeming like a lot, has a huge effect.
The official name of this watch is not actually “Rainbow Daytona” – this is just what it has been so affectionately dubbed over the past six years. It is officially famous as the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona model, a precious metal chronograph with a sapphire- and diamond-set case.
The Ever-rose gold really brings out the colors on the bezel. I suppose there is something about that pink hue that really amplifies everything, making the rainbow bezel more vibrant – which, let’s get real, is really what this fake watch needed.
The amazing part of this replica rolex watch is that it is so Rolex. It’s your standard Daytona, a traditional chronograph (a tool watch), decked out in perfectly matched, hand-cut, hand-set sapphires sourced from particular suppliers. In case you weren’t aware, Rolex has nearly 20 in-house gem-setters and they only use stones of IF quality, meaning they have no inclusions, no flaws, no nothing. Basically, every stone and every setting is perfect since the Rolex will settle for nothing less.
But it’s not what is new about this watch that makes it so unique, but rather the overall impression of the watch itself. I don’t know why, my general tastes tend to be very traditional and classic, but something about the sheer unnecessary nature of this watch is what really gets me. But for every part of me that loves this watch for purely aesthetic reasons, there are equal parts of me that are impressed by the manufacturing of this piece.
On the wrist, this watch is every bit as magical as you could imagine. It wears like a Daytona (obviously) and looks like Liberace – and I couldn’t love it more. I picture wearing it with jeans and a t-shirt in the summer time, sipping rosé on the beach somewhere fabulous. But everyone is allowed to have their own Rainbow Daytona fantasies, so have at it.
I thought this fake watch does not fit everybody. While, it’s not for most people! But I love it for exactly what it is: unadulterated luxury. It’s not about practicality or functionality. This replica watch is about fun, and isn’t that what watches should be all about? And before you go on to say I am in addiction to Rolex, I will tell you this – if Rolex is King, I am just a humble subject.
The replica Breitling recently stated an update to their Chronomat Colt range in step with their ongoing brand refresh, which gives a new appearance in both 44mm and 41mm sizes. While the 41mm diameter is not new to the Colt line, it does represent something of a sweet spot in terms of sport watch size and the fake Breitling has included some new dial colors in this low-key.
Typically featured by a chunky steel bezel with the Breitling’s signature “rider tabs” for added grip, the Chronomat line has traditionally housed a wide and varying array of replica watches that all loosely fall into the “all purpose” category. Tough, burly, and often huge, the Breitling has seen fit to continue the Chronomat’s placement within their lineup, distinct from their newly defined Air/Water/Earth organization scheme. The Colt has traditionally been one of the entry-level models from the Breitling replica and it has always blended a kind of military appeal with the basic philosophy of a dive watch.
However, the format stays the same status, with a 41mm steel case sporting a wide steel bezel, chunky lugs, and the choice of either the Pilot steel bracelet or a black leather strap. The design is nicely utilitarian, with a simple, legible, and balanced dial, with long hands, and a pop of red on the arrowhead tip of the seconds-hand. Just as sport-ready as it looks, the Colt has an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, screw down crown, a solid steel case-back, and 200 meters water resistance. With a fuss-free and nicely-executed date function at three, the Colt remains a very solid everyday sports watch.
Apart from the dial design, the most noteworthy aspect of this Colt refresh comes down to dial color. Now offered in either “Silver” (seen below, more of a matte creamy light-grey) or “Tempest Gray”, both versions of the Colt look really amazing. I especially like the unexpectedly modern feel of the matte Silver dial as it is surrounded by the brushed steel of the Colt’s bezel. While both dial options work well for the Colt design, the Tempest Gray dial is typical Breitling while the Silver dial is just a bit odd.
While certainly heavy on the Pilot steel bracelet, being 41mm wide and 12.4mm thick, the Colt wears really well and I think it would be even better on a simple leather or canvas strap. The bezel action is smooth, and aided in grip by the rather baroque rider tabs. As for the size, the Colt has presence and heft, but not so much that it overpowers my seven-inch wrist. In spite of my preference for a light-toned dial, in either color I suppose the Colt is one of the replica Breitling’s well-rounded offerings and an attractive option for anyone wanting a tough everyday sports watch that isn’t particularly flashy.
The IWC launched a replica watch in early 1990s that’s now considered a typical from the company’s post-Quartz Crisis period: the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph, which was a chronograph watch, heavily modified by the replica IWC’s Richard Habring. The Double Chronograph was the essence of unadorned, functional watch-making – in a substantial, 42mm x 17mm steel case, with a soft iron antimagnetic inner case and a dial strictly oriented towards legibility, it epitomized the no-frills, form-follows-function philosophy that had featured the replica IWC’s approach to instrument watches for decades.
Walt Odets once slyly haracterized the Mark XII as “every non-pilot’s favorite pilot’s watch,” and you could probably say the same about the original Fliegerchronograph – but the key to the success of the originals was that, irrespective of their adoption by professionals, they seemed to really be pilot’s watches, rather than to be illustrations of pilot’s watches. As with many of the classic IWC models from this period in the company’s history over the years, though the basic design has undergone a plethora of changes and variations on the essential theme, the spare design of the original still stands out as the pilot’s chronograph from the replica IWC.
For instrument watch fans, the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph and Pilot’s Chronograph/Flieger chronograph were a very big deal indeed, and they represented, along with the Mark XII, a kind of high water mark for functionally driven watch design – not just from IWC, but for the 1990s in general. Then, the fake IWC announced that an online-only re-issue of the original design – in a larger case, and with ecru lume – was out.
The replica watch looked very promising and indeed, in the metal, it’s an impressive watch, as well as being, for those of us who remember the debut of the originals in the ’90s, a pretty powerful reminder of a time when so many milestones in watch-making were yet to come and when the hobby was still very small scale.
It certainly feels very much like the original as well in many aspects. There’s the same take-it-or-leave-it chunky steel case, a virtually identical dial, the same date display as in the original, and the same distribution of lume. The basic design remains as strong as ever – time and elapsed time information are delivered with all the unambiguous bluntness, which for an instrument watch is exactly as it should be.
I actually don’t have a very clear sense of what it would be like to have a straight re-issue of the original back. The identity of a watch is very context dependent and who knows if how I felt about the replica watch in 1995 would necessarily be what I’d feel in 2019; And being a little too backwards-looking has, historically, been occasionally problematic and sometimes nearly fatal for the European watch industry.
We have introduced so many Rolex watches with automatic movement. After all, the “Oyster Perpetual” label given to most of Rolex’s models refers to the waterproof Oyster case and the perpetual (automatic) movement. However, the Swiss watch-making giant was not immune to the so-called “Quartz Crisis” of the sixties, seventies and eighties. As a matter of fact, the replica Rolex most definitely jumped on the technology bandwagon. Let’s get a closer look at the vintage Oyster quartz Datejust Rolex watch and discuss why Rolex produced a handful of quartz watches.
While today many watch fans look at quartz watches with disdain, in the 1960s this technology was heralded as a significant innovation in the industry. Actually, 20 top Swiss watchmakers, including the likes of replica Patek Philippe, Omega, and Rolex, joined forces to establish Centre Electronique Horloger (CEH) consortium with the objective to create a Swiss quartz movement they could all use. The result was the Beta-21 quartz movement introduced in 1969.
The Rolex produced this luxury model to house the new movement. However, it wasn’t long before Rolex decided that they could make an even better quartz caliber in-house and the company abandoned the CEH in 1972. After five years of intense research and development, Rolex finally unveiled a pair of manufacture quartz calibers: Caliber 5035 for the Oyster-quartz Datejust and the Caliber 5055 for the Oyster-quartz Day-Date. While the Oyster-quartz Day-Date replica watches were available in yellow and white gold, the Oyster-quartz Datejust collection provides a choice of full stainless steel, stainless steel with a white gold bezel, and two-tone yellow gold and stainless steel—like we see here.
Like all Oyster-quartz Datejust watches, the fake model features an outstanding angular case and an integrated bracelet. We’ve seen this familiar shape before, as it was the must-have silhouette of the 1970s, first introduced by Audemars Piguet with their groundbreaking Gerald Genta-designed Royal Oak sports watch.
Different from the other Oyster-quartz Datejust watches, however, the Rolex includes 18k yellow gold details. To begin with, there’s the fluted yellow gold bezel on top of the 36mm case along with the yellow gold winding crown. This is followed by two yellow gold links threading through the Jubilee-style integrated steel bracelet. We have to mention that while on paper the Oyster-quartz Datejust case measures 36mm, it wears larger thanks to its angular design. All this comes together for a great retro Rolesor Rolex fake watch that is oh-so seventies glam.
One of the first things you’ll notice if you wear a replica Rolex Oyster-quartz is how loud it ticks—particularly compared to its mechanical movement powered siblings. This is of course owing to the quartz caliber working away within the case.
