White Dial Replica Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia Watches Recommend To You

Omega says the idea for the Seamaster’s sea horse logo came when one of fake Omega’s designers visited Venice and saw the gondolas adorned with this fascinating animal – he liked the possible connection with it and the Seamaster and, since 1957, the Seahorse emblem has been associated with this collection.

While self-proclaimed fake Omega historians will certainly know of a few vintage fake Omega Seamasters from the mid-1900s, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that most replica Omega fans and buyers today think not of a vintage dress watch when they hear the word Seamaster. Yet, this new-for-2017 piece shares numerous design elements with Seamasters of old, reminding everyone that the fake Omega with Caliber 8801 has not always been about chunky, sporty, and colorful. It goes to show that, if you think about it, not only is Omega itself a very versatile and complex brand, but even its collections can be a bit all over the place sometimes.

While you could consider this another 60th-anniversary tribute, I think the new Sedna gold replica Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia should really just be left alone to be what it actually is: a heavily vintage-inspired, retro-looking dress watch, something that’s been missing from Omega’s stable for some time now. The Globemaster is available in steel but is more modern in its design, even if it is not without its own vintage-tribute details.

The delicate fake Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia has a domed, silvery, off-white dial with applied indices, Omega logo and text, and a pair of thin, polished leaf-style hands – all of this is in 18k Sedna gold on both model variants. Legibility, because the dials appear to be more satin than shiny, should be alright – it would have been sad to see this piece ruined by the horribly illegible combination of a shiny dial and shiny, skinny hands. Love it or hate it, there is also a subtle date aperture at six, maintaining the symmetry of the dial.

Over the dial is a domed sapphire crystal that should add more depth to the skinny-looking watch – no official figures on thickness but considering the basic functionality of the movement and the small diameter of the case, we’d be surprised if this was a burger. Water resistance is an ample 60 meters or 200 feet, not bad for a gold dress watch and just enough that you never have to worry about it.

Exposed via the laser-engraved sapphire case-back is the fake Omega Caliber 8801, an automatic Co-Axial movement boasting METAS-approved quality control and a resistance to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss. The gold version will come with an 18k Sedna gold balance bridge and oscillating weight. Power reserve is 55 hours which isn’t bad considering the relatively small size of the case and, therefore, movement.

Excellent New UK Raymond Weil Freelancer Calibre RW1212 Replica Watches For You

A good number of Swiss watch brands are owned by conglomerates. There are only a handful of independent brands left and Swiss Raymond Weil is one of them. As most readers will probably know by now, Swatch’s decision to reduce supply of ETA movements to brands outside of the Swatch Group has had a significant impact on the Swiss watch industry. In the past couple of years, many brands outside of the Swatch Group have either scrambled to develop and produce their own movements or have sought out alternative suppliers. For Raymond Weil, one of the things that they did was kind of between those two options by teaming up with movement manufacturer Sellita to design their own movement. And the result of this collaboration is the Calibre RW1212, Raymond Weil’s first in-house-designed movement, produced by Sellita, and the first watch to use this movement is the balck dial fake Raymond Weil Freelancer Calibre RW1212 watch.

Since the in-house developed movement is the highlight of this watch, let’s begin with that. The name RW1212 comes from the postal code of fake Raymond Weil’s address in the Geneva suburb of Grand-Lancy. The movement took the R&D team at Raymond Weil and Sellita 18 months to develop and was developed in part to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Raymond Weil. A distinctive feature of this movement is that it was designed in a way that its escapement could be revealed on the dial side at 6 o’clock. In this way, from the dial side of the watch, the balance wheel, which is also diamond-polished, by the way, almost looks like a tourbillon the way it is mounted with two bridges. Whether that’s a good thing or not, I’ll leave it up to you to decide.

The Calibre RW1212 can also be viewed from the rear via a sapphire crystal display case back. Unfortunately, we don’t have any press photos of the case back, but replica Raymond Weil’s press release says the rotor is adorned with Côtes de Genève and is engraved with the Raymond Weil logo. I suppose it won’t be too shabbily decorated, so expect the usual Côtes de Genève on bridges and perlage on the main plate. Other details that we know now are that the Calibre RW1212 will beat at 4Hz and will offer 38 hours of power reserve.

The new Calibre RW1212 movement will be featured in the stainless steel case Raymond Weil watch. The Freelancer Calibre RW1212 watch comes in a 42mm-wide stainless steel case with either a silver or black dial and paired with either a bracelet or strap. There will also be two-tone variants. Case thickness is a very reasonable 10.6mm. And thanks to the fluted screwed-down crown, water-resistance is a very adequate 100 meters.

The watch that you see here is the stainless steel version with a black dial and steel bracelet. The barrel-shaped hands are made of stainless steel and are filled with Super-LumiNova for better legibility in low-light situations. The highlight of the dial is the opening at 6 o’clock that exposes the escapement. The center of the dial features guilloche, which adds some texture to the dial and prevents it from looking too plain.

All in all, the new fake Raymond Weil Freelancer RW1212 watch is an interesting proposition for anyone in search of an accessible Swiss-made dress watch. The open aperture at 6 o’clock exposing the escapement might not be to everyone’s taste, but it will surely appeal to readers who prefer a bit more action on the dial. In any case, credit must be given to Raymond Weil for pursuing a movement of their own design.

New Wonderful Replica UK Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 Watches

The use of novel and space-age materials in high-end watches is always fun to follow as a spectator, but it’s far more appreciated when their practical benefits might sometime soon be used in watches that a broader segment can enjoy. That’s rarely the case, but one watch that piqued my interest in this way was the black dial fake Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days (debuted here). Utilizing an array of carbon composites and low-friction components that run without the need for any kind of liquid lubrication, the result is a watch that guarantees 50 years of service-free operation. There’s no way to know if the guarantee will hold but, limited in production to only 50 pieces, I can’t imagine that 50 Panerai enthusiasts and collectors, aka “Paneristis,” won’t want to engage in this long-term experiment with the brand.

Alongside the Panerai BMG-TECH which also centers around the use of fancy, high-tech materials, the delicate Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 demonstrates the capabilities of the Laboratorio di Idee (LAB-ID), which operates as Panerai’s R&D department based in Neuchâtel. Like some of Panerai’s previous timepieces (such as this Luminor Submersible 1950), the watch utilizes a material known as Carbotech that serves on both functional and aesthetic levels. While I can’t dispute the use of carbon composites for the sake of their mechanical advantage, I can’t help but notice just how well the deep shaded layers of the Carbotech interact with the minimal blue luminous dial and crystal Panerai incorporated here.

There are four innovations Panerai utilized in developing its caliber P.3001/C, starting with a set of mainplates and bridges constructed entirely out of tantalum-based ceramic, removing the need for any kind of lubrication. This oil-free concept also moves into the DLC-coated silicon escapement, which is second in the list of innovations. Thirdly, with the kind of ceramic and DLC use we see here, luminous scale replica Panerai has eliminated the need for traditional jewels. Therefore, the movement uses a set of just four DLC-coated jewels that remove the need to lubricate the Incabloc shock system. Finally, the two mainspring barrels also operate without any grease or oil and do so with a multi-layer coating and a final layer of DLC.

It’s true that the low-friction, oil-free concept isn’t something new in watchmaking. Back in 2007, Jaeger-LeCoultre released the Extreme LAB followed by the Master Compressor Extreme Lab 2, another watch that could operate without lubrication for its lifetime. The same can be said about a watch like the Cartier ID Two Concept we covered previously. What these pieces didn’t have was the 50-year guarantee, and while the Cartier concept remained a concept, the JLC is designed to grab attention and reflect its “overengineered” attitude both inside and out. This Panerai, however, isn’t really that different-looking from any other watch they make, save for the use of blue and other subtle hints. I like that it’s a watch you can actually ostensibly wear every day for 50 years without feeling self-aware about it – if you have wrists like Sylvester Stallone, that is.

The fake Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700’s case is sized at a substantial 49mm. Much of the larger size is offset by the Carbotech’s characteristic lightweight features. It displays thick layers of the carbon fiber composite and, as I mentioned previously, this creates interesting visual effects with both the luminous blue and deep black tones on the dial. This layered effect even carries on into the crown-protecting device Panerai is known for. The matte finishing is also a nice inclusion to the watch’s stealthy and high-precision look. Additionally, the case boasts 100 meters of water-resistance.

On the dial, excellent Panerai replcia uses carbon nanotubes meant to absorb any trace of light that hits it, resulting in a deep, deep black. The blue Super-LumiNova used throughout the numerals and markers on the “sandwich-style” dial pops against the black tone and is also incorporated into the hands. It almost reminds me of single beams of light piercing through miles of deep oceanic abyss. Overall, I find the dial to be as legible as it gets considering its high contrast and massive size.

The crystal itself has the text “Luminor, Panerai, LAB-ID,” printed directly onto it, and I think this is where some people might find issues with the watch. Because the text is printed onto the crystal itself, it will inevitably get in the way of the hands, which could throw some people off when trying to read the time. Personally, I find that it serves as an interesting solution to the fact that Panerai could not print text on the carbon nanotube dial. Additionally, the crystal features double anti-reflective coating.

Taking a look at the case back, we find the caliber P.3001/C in all its deep, dark glory. One of my favorite features is the power reserve indicator that uses the same blue accents found on the dial. Power reserve is three days and the movement operates at 21,600vph. For convenience while time setting, Panerai fake included a seconds reset function that returns the seconds hand to the 12 o’clock position. It’s a feature that seems to grow increasingly popular and is definitely something I can appreciate.

No surprise here, the strap on the replica Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 carries the black and blue scheme. The same dark tones found throughout the watch carry on all the way through the buckle and the blue contrast stitching ties together the look.

UK Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu Replica Watches With Unico HUB1213 Movement Presenting To You

Collaborations and tie-ins are nothing new to Hublot. The brand thrives on them. And as part of the company’s release strategy, wonderful Hublot replica has also created numerous limited-edition watches to commemorate these relationships. For the most part, these limited-edition watches are variations of existing references – new dial colors, new case materials, new straps… that kind of stuff. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I’m sure many readers would prefer to see something a little different and special. It seemed like Hublot has heard our pleas because the limited-edition fake Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is one of the more outstanding and unique limited-edition Big Bang watch that I have seen in recent times.

A little background is necessary before I talk about the watch because it is instructive to the design of the fake Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu. Sang Bleu was founded by Maxime Buchi, a Swiss tattoo artist, entrepreneur, and a watch lover. The company is described as a multimedia platform and creative agency. It consists of Sang Bleu magazine, a publication that focuses on contemporary art and culture; Sang Bleu Physical, a streetwear clothing label; Swiss Typefaces, a type-design studio that specializes in creating logos and corporate typeface; and finally, Sang Bleu Tattoo Studio. If you head over to their site, you see that it’s all edgy, hipster stuff, which is fitting because the Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is one of the edgiest takes on the Big Bang design.

It won’t be a stretch to say that the rose gold case replica Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is a totally redesigned Big Bang. Available in titanium, titanium with diamonds, King Gold, and Black Ceramic, the case of the Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu measures 45mm wide, which is standard stuff for Big Bang watches. What is drastically different, however, as you may have already noticed from the photos here, are the case and dial.

Both the case and dial have been designed by Maxime Buchi and it is even more striking in the flesh as compared to the press photos that I have seen. The bezel, for instance, is now cut and beveled and features a hexagonal shape that contrasts greatly against the other Big Bang watches. The top side is satin-finished while the angled, beveled edges are mirror-polished. The facets act as surfaces on which light is reflected, giving this new Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu case a greater sense of depth. The only design element that seems to have been carried over to the bezel are the signature Hublot H-shaped screws. Water resistance is 100 meters, which as I have mentioned many times before, should be the absolute minimum for a luxury sports watch.

The dial also sees big changes, in place of hands and counters, what you see is a series of octagonal gold-plated discs with symmetrical lines within them, stacked upon each other. The effect of this is quite profound. I’m almost tempted to say that it looks somewhat tribal, but then I realized that the shapes here were inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man drawing, and I figured the word that I’m actually looking for is probably classical.

There are three discs in total, and if you look closely, you can see that the tips of two are them are coated with white Super-LumiNova. It’s actually quite easy to read the time once you know what you are dealing with: the outer and largest disc indicates the hour, whereas the smaller disc shows the minutes, and the smallest unmarked disc in the middle of the dial spins to indicate the seconds.

To aid owners in reading the time, the dial’s flange indicates the hours and there’s an inner minutes track that aligns with the minutes disc. An interesting detail here is that the numerals on the flange and minutes track are specially created by Swiss Typefaces, which, as mentioned earlier, is the type-design studio arm of Sang Bleu.

The theme of symmetrical lines and geometric shapes continues onto the case middle too with engraved patterns at both lugs. The leather straps, which are made by Italian leather purveyors Schedoni, are not spared too, with embossed patterns that form a very coherent look with the rest of the watch. Taken as a whole, the fake Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu withUnico HUB1213 movement is easily one of the most special-looking Big Bang watches, and that’s what I like most about it.

Inside, the exquisite replica Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is powered by fake Hublot’s Unico HUB1213 movement, which is essentially a Unico movement with the chronograph function removed and the geartrain reworked so as to provide more torque to move the large discs. Power reserve remains unchanged at 72 hours, or three days.

Unique to the movement is the rotor, which continues the polygonal and symmetrical theme of the dial, featuring a silhouette of a triangle, surrounded by other symmetrical shapes and lines. It’s quite neat to see it spin when you give the watch a little shake.

Overall, the black leather strap fake Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is easily one of Hublot’s most remarkable and unique limited-edition watches, and hopefully future limited-edition Hublot pieces will use the Sang Bleu as an inspiration and strive to be more than just a simple variation of existing references. In fact, all brands should aspire to the same goals as the Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu. Limited-edition pieces shouldn’t just be an excuse to sell more watches, they should commemorate the watch for what it is and the Sang Bleu pulls this off successfully. It is easy to see that Maxime Buchi had a large role to play in the design of the Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu.

UK Wonderful Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba SBEE001 And SBEE002 Giugiaro Design Limited Edition Replica Watches Review

The ongoing partnership between Seiko and Giugiaro Design isn’t slowing down. But today we see not a fresh design but one created with the Italian design company 30-some years ago, the wonderful fake Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba SBEE001 and SBEE002 watches based on models from the 1980s. As many of the Seiko Giugiaro watches have been chronographs, which is fitting as Giugiaro is perhaps best known for its automotive design, dive watches at least offer some welcome variety. And the quirky asymmetrical (G-Shock Frogman-like) design perhaps most associated with the Seiko Giugiaro watches is back again.

The Giugiaro-designed Seiko replica watches are distinctive and recognizable, to say the least, and you can probably spot most of them from across a room. The Giugiaro watches are exercises in design and have included many affordable models like these as well as higher-end watches like the Astron. Only earlier this month, we were surprised by the release of this delicate fake Seiko Astron Giugiaro Design Limited Edition SSE121 GPS watch (which is probably the coolest-looking Seiko Astron I’ve seen). While the Astron also had that offset design of the case in relation to the lugs and strap, the new Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba Giugiaro Design models have more in common with the Seiko x Giugiaro 30th Anniversary Spirit Smart watch – though note that the case is offset in the other direction.

For the SBEE001 and SBEE002 watches Seiko didn’t tone back the ’80s in them at all. The Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba Giugiaro Design limited editions appear to be faithful to the original reference 7C43-7A00 (above) in about every respect. The yellow dial replica Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba Giugiaro Design reference SBEE001 is steel with a blue dial, and the SBEE002 is gold-toned steel with a gold dial. Both have plastic outer cases with a strange bumpy texture which looks rather, well, plasticky in these official images.

Measuring 43.8mm wide, 48mm lug to lug, and 11.2mm thick, on what looks like a somewhat thin silicone strap, the proportions of the offset case are even more pronounced. Over the dial is “curved glass.” While in the Seiko Prospex collection, the dial does not indicate that but it does indicate the case’s 200m water resistance. Inside the black strap fake Seiko Prospex Diver Scuba SBEE001 and SBEE002 Giugiaro Design is the 7N36 quartz movement with an accuracy of -/+ 15 seconds per month that indicates the time, date, and day of the week.

Fantastic UK Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition Replica Watches

The Geneva Motor Show will take place just before Baselworld 2017, and one of the most eagerly anticipated cars at the show will be Italdesign’s new hypercar. Founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro, Italdesign is a design and engineering company with a long history, and this will be their first foray into making a proper car. To commemorate the occasion, Italdesign has also teamed up with delicate Roger Dubuis replica to create the new replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition watch.

But before we talk about the watch, here’s a little history about Italdesign. The main thing to know is that Italdesign is responsible for some of the greatest-looking cars in the history of the automobile. For example, Italdesign designed the fantastic-looking Maserati MC12 and the sexy Alfa Romeo Brera. Going further back, they were also the firm behind the DeLorean DMC-12 – surely one of most recognizable cars in the world – and also the first generation Volkswagen Golf and Scirocco. It is an enviable CV of car design.

And now, Italdesign wants to make cars proper. Heading this effort will be a new company called “Italdesign Automobili Speciali” and they will be primarily focused on making extremely limited edition cars. Now, since this is particularly relevant to the watch and an interesting development in itself, let’s talk a bit more about Italdesign’s newest car. At the time of writing, this car doesn’t have a proper name yet, but we do know that it looks absolutely bonkers, and it will be super fast. Thanks to an all carbon fiber chassis and a massive naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine, the unnamed supercar will be able to hit 60mph in just 3.2 seconds. The car will hit speeds of over 205mph. Only five units will be made.

Now, let’s talk about the watch. The cool fake Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition watch is clearly based on Roger Dubuis’ Excalibur Spider Single Tourbillon watch. That watch is notable because features a highly skeletonized dial that shows off Roger Dubuis’ Geneva Seal-stamped caliber RD505SQ to its fullest.

The stainless steel case replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition watch is no different but features a few aesthetic cues that make it stand out. Since Italdesign is based in Italy – and obviously emphasizes its Italianness – the watch features the colors of the Italian flag with red, white, and green accents, as Italdesign has made a signature of their brand. We will note, this also more or less matches the car’s color scheme.

The 45mm-wide multi-layer carbon case, for example, features a white ceramic bezel marked with red liquid ceramic. The DLC-coated titanium crown comes with red vulcanized rubber. On the dial, the flange features red minute markers and even a tiny Italian flag at 11 o’clock. The white gold hour and minute hands also feature red tips filled with white SuperLuminova. And finally, the black rubber strap, for instance, features red, white, and green stitching. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition watch patriotic!

The highly skeletonized dial leaves nothing to the imagination, as the caliber RD505SQ is exposed in all its glory. There is a large flying tourbillon with a tourbillon carriage in the shape of the Celtic Cross at 7 o’clock, and all plates and bridges are circular-grained and coated with NAC treatment. The caliber RD505SQ is hand-wound and has a single barrel that offers a power reserve of 60 hours.

Certainly, the black strap replica Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition watch is a good match for Italdesign’s new hypercar. Both are Italian and both are produced in extremely limited units. The fake Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Italdesign Edition watch will be limited to just 8 pieces, which is curious because Italdesign’s new hypercar is, as I mentioned earlier, limited to 5 units. Wouldn’t it make more sense for the watch to be available in the same number as the car?

Wonderful UK Replica Pocket Watch Inspired Pramzius Trans-Siberian Railroad Watches

Pramzius replica is a new watch brand with the unique mission of bringing the delciate fake Pramzius Trans-Siberian Railroad pocket watch back, but in the form of a wristwatch. Our company has been importing watches from Eastern Europe and Russia for the better part of two decades, with names you know like Vostok-Europe, Sturmanskie and Tsikolia. In late 2015 we decided to launch our own brand drawing from our many years of experience with watches from this part of the world.

Pramzius, which is named for the mythological Baltic Ruler of Time, will use inspirations from one of the eight countries that border the Baltic Sea. For the first edition, we chose for inspiration a Russian railroad pocket watch popular in decades past built by a company that sadly ceased operation in 2007. As a result, we built this first model to be “unapologetically big” at 48 mm in order to be sized similarly to the inspiration watch. We wanted the first Pramzius to be a pocket watch for the wrist, and a quite specific one at that.

The original pocket watch maintained popularity throughout its run and was really just a cool piece. The simple dial and that amazing relief image of the train on the back made the watch a must-have for collectors of Russian timepieces as well as devotees to pocket watches. We actually sold the original watch in North America for many years before the company that built them folded, and it was always one of our co-founder’s personal favorites. He has several in his private collection.

Despite our love of the original, we knew the blue steel pointer replica Pramzius Trans-Siberian would have to incorporate critical updates from the inspiration piece for today’s watch consumer demands. The case, crystal and crown, among other things, are all significantly improved. The original was plated brass, and the Pramzius is all surgical-grade stainless steel.

We also know that watch owners really enjoy multiple strap options these days, so we are having three made for the white dial fake Pramzius Trans-Siberian – a bund or lagarto style, a nylon Zulu style, and a more traditional wide-grain leather version that still has the screw-in system for security. The base model automatically comes with two straps, with the third as an optional upgrade. And for those who love the piece but perhaps don’t see themselves wearing it, we are offering an optional cherry wood veneer stand made right here in Connecticut that can convert the Trans-Siberian into a desk clock.

For the engine, instead of a pocket-watch movement with a sub-dial second hand, we went with the NH38 open heart movement built by SII, so that the open heart displays where the sub seconds would normally appear. We wanted the quality that comes from fake Seiko but we also wanted to have the configuration speak to the pocket watch legacy. The open heart accomplishes both and puts a new twist on the whole theme.

With all that said, for us, the case back is as important to the watch’s identity as anything else. We insisted the case back feature the large, 3D rendering of the original train that appeared on the inspiration watch. That was really what made the original such a sought after piece. The acrylic crystal on the inspiration watch is upgraded to a K1 mineral (or optional sapphire) crystal. The watch is also a numbered, limited edition of only 999 per dial while the original was a continuous production. Nobody actually knows how many were ever produced.

The inspiration watch also had new luminous material, which is not that uncommon for pocket watches. So, that was another change we knew we would be making. We are lume nuts. We won’t personally wear watches that don’t have excellent lume and there was no way we were going to produce timepieces that didn’t rock great luminous material.

This is a watch for those who love bright, highly visible lume. The Super-Luminova on the brown leather strap fake Pramzius lights up the night and splits the dark. The full-lume dial on the white model is, of course, a stand out. However the lume on the blue and black dials is also excellent, with the black sporting the coveted blue color lume. The lume on the full lume dial is C3, which is the brightest offered by Super-Luminova. The black and blue use one of the newest compounds, BGW09, which allows for the wider variety of color options. Something of note: we apply 15 to 20 coats of lume (well beyond any industry standard) and we silk screen between layers to provide the maximum illumination from the bottom layer all the way to the top.

Even though this is not a dive watch, we at replica Pramzius insisted on 10 ATM water resistance. Our goal was not to simply recreate the original pocket watch and put it on a strap. We wanted to create something new that is true to the inspiration but also a solid upgrade in material and workmanship. If you are a fan of big watches with stand out lume and are looking for something that won’t look like what is on everyone’s wrist, the Pramzius Tran-Siberian is definitely for you.

Recommendation Of Several UK Fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Atelier Reverso Classic Large Duo Small Second Watches

Watch buyers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and discerning. They no longer just want a well-made, handsome watch. They want exclusivity and the ability to customize a watch to their tastes, and that is why the wonderful replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Atelier Reverso program was born. Unveiled last year as part of the Reverso’s 85th anniversary, the Atelier Reverso program allows watch lovers to customize their Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso with dozens of dial and strap options. According to fake Jaeger-LeCoultre, a staggering 5277 combinations are possible. Well, there are going to be a couple more because the brand has just announced three new dial options for the men’s Reverso Classic Duo Small Second watch.

As you can see, the three new dial options are Electric Blue, Military Marble, and Tiger’s Eye. But before we talk more about the new dial options let’s recap the white scale Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic Large Duo Small Second watch. It comes in a stainless steel case and measures 47mm by 28.3mm and is 10.3mm thick, which means it is quite modestly sized. It has two faces – hence the Duo name – driven by a single movement, allowing it to display time in two time zones. Water-resistance is 30 meters.

The movement within is the hand-wound JLC Calibre 854A/2, which is a fairly simple movement that beats at 3Hz and is made out of 160 parts with 19 jewels. Power reserve is a standard-range 40 hours.

The exquisite fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic Large Duo Small Second watch comes with two dials that the wearer can flip between with the watch still on the wrist (in case you are unfamiliar with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso concept). The main watch dial is in silver and features a vertical brushed finish and a hand guilloche center with a small seconds indicator at 6 o’clock. The hands are blued for an added touch of elegance. All in all, like most other delicate replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches, the main dial of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic Large Duo Small Second oozes lots of Art Deco cool and elegance.

If you flip the case around, you will be greeted by the second Travel Time dial. On the regular green dial fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classic Large Duo Small Second watch, this dial features Clous de Paris engraving and a handy day/night indicator. But now, there are three new dial options featuring exotic stones. Let’s get into these three new dial options right now.

The three new dial options are, again, Electric Blue, Military Marble, and Tiger’s Eye. Electric Blue features a striking matte blue register atop blue Clous de Paris markings on the dial. Military Marble consists of a matte green register surrounded by a unique-looking green marble. And finally, Tiger’s Eye features a reddish brown register in the center of the dial surrounded by Tiger’s Eye stone, which has distinctive alternating bands of various shades of brown and gold. And if you want, brown dial Jaeger-LeCoultre replica also offers matching straps to go with these three new dials.

I have always liked white gold case fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watches with two faces, and I think these three new dial options will be popular amongst Reverso fans who want something a little out of the ordinary. Personally, I’m quite fond of dials made out of exotic stones as I find them to look much more interesting and dynamic. Of the trio, the Electric Blue dial doesn’t really do much for me, and I’m more intrigued by the Military Marble and Tiger’s Eye dial options. Military Marble is definitely something unusual and could be interesting in the flesh. On the other hand, Tiger’s Eye is a wonderfully striking stone and I think it would make for a visually arresting watch dial.

UK Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 Replica Watches Review

From a strictly military perspective, wearing a white dial dive watch on a mission would possibly cause your fellow commando soldiers to smack you in the back of the head. But what the white dial replica Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 lacks in historical accuracy and stealth capabilities it makes up for by being one of the more affordable, in-house-movement-equipped and refreshing-looking alternatives in a sea of boring black and blue dial watches.

Panerai may be a brand of only a handful of – admittedly very similar – collections, yet it still is one among few that have an almost unearthly power in bringing their first-time customer back for another model… and then another, and another, and so on. As such, I don’t think that the brown leather strap fake Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is a typical “first Panerai” – for that, check out our Cost of Entry article on the most affordable Panerai you can buy.

I picked the stainless steel case replica Panerai PAM561 specifically because I wanted to review a Panerai that isn’t an obvious choice but something one might actually end up considering after looking at the current production line-up of the brand. Clad in a 44mm-wide Luminor case, it is a simple, legible, and among Panerai watches, competitively priced offering that also packs a more unusual hand-wound, in-house-made movement with an 8-day power reserve.

Aesthetics & Wearability

Being the simple watch that it is, there isn’t much pizzazz to get distracted by. But that just means that the fewer number of consequently more prominent elements have to work together all the better – and, with one notable gripe notwithstanding, they do.To this day, I remain positively baffled by how ingenious this Luminor case design is, especially in 44mm where proportions with the dial elements I find more spot on than the 47mm. The larger case is proportionate but often too large to work well with the dial, in my opinion.

The perfectly round bezel looks both elegant and masculine, while the cushion-shaped case with its tall profile (unlike the sloped 1950 variant) and straight lugs operates in brilliant harmony with it. The black scale fake Panerai PAM561 has a fully polished case which is not as impressive as exteriors with alternating finishings can be: it really is a polished mass of steel without any sharp angles, complex corners and edges, or particularly fascinating details anywhere. It is your bog-standard Luminor case that is attractive as a whole and at a glance, but not for its selfishly complicated intricacies.

Of the two minor details I would still point out that go beyond mere proportions, first is how the four corners of the middle case are curved downwards, which takes the edges of the corners away and makes them better complement the round dial and bezel. The second is the profile of the crown guard – not something many would look at. Its bottom side is completely flat to keep it as high above the wrist as possible (though at times, it does dig into the skin), while its top part is angled upwards, towards the wearer. This, you don’t necessarily realize even when looking at the watch at a slight angle, but it does add more sophistication to this over-60-year-old military design.

Speaking of this component, oddly enough, Panerai decided to add a fully satin-finished crown guard on the completely polished case. This isn’t something that would stand out immediately at first look, but once spotted wasn’t something that I could quite get used to over the few weeks with the fake Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561. This aesthetic element is sort of like an exaggerated take on alternating finishing. I will say that, from afar, I found it possibly adds a more quality look than what the PAM561 would have had with a polished crown guard to go with the reflective case. It isn’t a maker or breaker of the aesthetics but rather something that I think is a bit odd at first, but ultimately, justified.

Typical Panerai treats include the reassuringly snappy crown guard lever – that I liked to fiddle with whenever I had a brief moment to spare in a queue or on public transport. It is something I find myself reaching for and disappointedly not finding after strapping on other watches. Also appreciated was the 24mm lug width that opens up a virtually infinite supply of strap options.
Panerai will sell you calf and buffalo leather straps from CHF 220 going up to CHF 360 for alligator ones. But frankly, at this point, there is such a vast selection of aftermarket straps that you’d be highly encouraged to shop around there (and support those guys, as well).

 

The black “Calf Monte Carlo” leather strap that the elegant replica Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is supplied with is of decent quality, but nothing notable that would really add or take away from its overall appearance and impression. If anything, this black-on-black option I think is a bit safe and boring, especially as this white dial version is all about more vivid colors and pushing regular, safe aesthetics to the side a bit. Apart from looks, wearability is as great as it always is with a Panerai, as the watch is held firm and secure thanks to the ample width, thickness, and rigidity of the strap and its massive, Panerai-marked pin buckle.

Dial & Legibility (& My Only Gripe)

The dial is more unusual not just in its color but also in its markings, with Arabic numerals all around (unlike your more typical Panerai dials that only have numerals for 12, 3, 6, and 9 with baton markers everywhere else) plus an additional and, again, rarer 60-minute track on the periphery. The numerals are not lumed, only the hands and the pips on the periphery of the dial are. All of these are painted on the dial’s surface as the luminous pointer fake Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 has a solid dial rather than the famed Panerai sandwich dial.

Sandwich dials are fun and all, but your first Panerai more than likely had that already, and the fake Paenrai PAM561 is more like your second or third in the line, as I mentioned above, where you do want something new in the subtleties that render one Panerai different from another. The prominent “8 DAYS” marking above six o’clock refers to the P.5000 in-house caliber – but before we move on to that, just one more word (and my only gripe with the PAM561) on legibility.

The black numerals and the black painted hands with their off-white (but not faux vintage!) center contrast beautifully against the sharp white dial – the lume pips and the center of the hands turn noticeably green even when it’s bright outside, the famously excellent Panerai lume is so strong. Stay inside for longer, though, and as the lume discharges (and doesn’t receive much charge from ambient lights), these elements go back to being white.

Everlastingly good color contrast aside, however, the only two hands on the fake Panerai PAM561 are just way too short. I noticed this in official images but even during the excitement of unpacking a freshly received review unit, they soon stood out for me as too short – and, frankly, I don’t see why this was necessary. The minute hand falls way short of the track it’s by definition supposed to reach, and the hour hand sometimes just looks “lost” in the sea of white, coming in way too short to be even remotely close to the outer edge of the dial (it barely reaches halfway across).

Perhaps longer and heavier hands would have put additional strain on the movement, but if anything, an 8-day power reserve movement should have enough torque to move these thin and light hands around. I personally will go so far as to say I would have traded a day or two of power reserve for longer hands.

Elegant UK Tudor Heritage Black Bay Chronograph Replica Watches Hands-On

We looked forward to seeing new iterations of Tudor’s highly successful fake Tudor Heritage Black Bay line at Baselworld 2017 – but this is something that we didn’t expect. A new chronograph watch with an “outside group movement,” it is officially called the wonderful replica Tudor Heritage Black Bay Chrono. In short, its surprising combination of typical chronograph and dive watch design elements powered by a new-for-the-brand chronograph movement leaves us with a lot to discuss.

We’ve covered this delicate fake Tudor several times in the past, and for all details you could possibly want on it, check out our comparison test of the Heritage Black Bay Black and the Rolex Submariner 114060 here. In a nutshell, the most notable contributors to the success of the Heritage Black Bay beyond its competitive price point are its great legibility, powerful in-house movement, and perhaps above all else, its elegant, clean, purposeful looks.

With the luminous scale fake Tudor Heritage Black Bay Chronograph, Tudor has added a new and, again, sort of unexpected element by turning a full-on dive watch into a “diver chronograph” – a very sensitive, complicated combination that we have seen both work well and not work well in the past. A quick rundown of the mixed elements in this watch are as follows: the tachymeter scale, two sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock, central seconds hand and two screw-down pushers for the chronograph; a highly legible dial with large and bold indices and hands, the red “meters first” text and the so-called “big crown” for the diver.

Tudor made a risky move by merging all these traits to pretty much completely remove the brown leather strap fake Tudor Heritage Black Bay from its comfort zone of being a clean-looking, vintage-inspired dive watch and turn it into what we could best categorize as a diver and/or sporty chronograph. The boldness of the move comes in how watch enthusiasts (many of whom are Tudor fans and customers) often tend to prefer single-purpose designs and purpose-built products to feature-laden and multi-purpose ones as the former tend to age and look better and also work with a wider range of situations and attire.

Tudor thus far has pretty much excelled at nailing this “purpose built” ethos throughout its Heritage Black Bay, Pelagos, and even their Heritage Chrono lines. Now, the stainless steel case Tudor Heritage Black Bay Chrono is the first to really go in a totally different direction and blend two into one… Which begs the question, can it win the hearts of both Black Bay and Heritage Chrono enthusiasts, find a new customer base, or suffer from what some do-it-all products do and fall to the floor between two chairs?

In steel and at 41mm wide, it is as wearable and comfortable as any Black Bay before, and the leather straps are especially good this time around, though we are still not fans of the woven straps. There also is a riveted bracelet that we saw debut last year when the exquisite replica Tudor Heritage Black Bay received its update from an ETA movement to Tudor’s in-house caliber. Wearability, therefore, is still great and the sizing remains timeless – if you want a larger Black Bay you’ll have to go with the bronze iteration. Water-resistance is rated at 200 meters (as is noted on the dial with a vintage-watch-enthusiast-enticing red lettering) thanks to the screw-down crown and pushers.

 

The charming replica Tudor Heritage Black Bay Chrono debuts the brand’s new chronograph caliber MT5813, a column-wheel, vertical clutch and silicon balance spring-equipped, COSC chronometer-certified caliber. Serving as its base is the Breitling Caliber B01, Breitling’s flagship chronograph movement and, in fact, the Tudor Caliber MT5813 is manufactured by Breitling but updated with Tudor’s proprietary adjustable moment of inertia balance wheel, hairspring, and finishes.

Though the proprietary movement is manufactured by Breitling, the solid case-back of the Black Bay Chrono does say Calibre Manufacture twice on it. In return, Breitling will receive Tudor’s MT5612 calibre (a three-hand with date) and use it as their Breitling B20 (as in the new Superocean Heritage II). So yes, Tudor and Breitling are sharing resources in what the brands refer to as a “complimentary partnership” of offering services to one another – an intelligent move considering both the history and present state of the watch industry.

Power reserve is an impressive 70 hours and operating frequency is an expected 4Hz. Indications include hours and minutes via the typical Black Bay handset, two sub-dials with running seconds on the left and a 45-minute counter on the right and, new for the Black Bay, a white date at six. Legibility overall is good, with only the curved crystal’s occasional glare and the large snowflake hand covering most of a chronograph sub-dial hindering it. The interesting, subtle texture of the dial helped highlight the shiny hands more, though black dials will always be outperformed by brighter ones when it comes to legibility.

The date window and tachymeter scale are two design elements that frequently cause controversy in modern watchmaking and this is especially true when you think about the Black Bay’s successful and well-loved clean/undisturbed lines. The date at six o’clock makes for a balanced and symmetrical look but the black on white text, and the square cut-out against the round indices makes it stand out more than would arguably be ideal.
