Delicate UK Replica TAG Heuer Heritage Autavia Calibre Heuer 02 Watches Review

Ever since “The Autavia Cup” design campaign in March 2016, watch lovers have been excited about the re-issue of the TAG Heuer Autavia. The idea was to allow the public the opportunity to choose from a long list of historic Heuer Autavia watches that the TAG Heuer of today would produce and release just one year later. The summation of that is here, available for sale, and a rather special product if you understand it for what it is. I will say that while the TAG Heuer Heritage Autavia Calibre Heuer 02 is undeniably lovely, it takes a certain perspective of understanding to really appreciate what TAG Heuer did correctly here.

 

Prior to discussing the exquisite fake TAG Heuer Heritage Caliber Heuer 02 Automatic Chronograph (oddly, even though ‘Autavia’ is on the dial of the watch, it doesn’t seem to technically be the name of the watch as of writing on the TAG Heuer website), I want to talk about recent background of the TAG Heuer brand and what the watch market seems to be interested in. The last decade has been a rocky time at black dial replica TAG Heuer with lots of leadership changes, rapid fluctuations in the average price point of products, sometimes very large and diverse types of products, and an internal struggle of current objective priorities.

Much of that is thought to now be resolved under the leadership of Jean-Claude Biver—modern hero of the watch industry. As the guy responsible for running the watch division of LVMH (which includes TAG Heuer, Zenith, and Hublot, as well as Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, and Dior), he is the name in charge at replica TAG Heuer. Jean-Claude has proven to be very open-minded as well as grand in his vision toward rebuilding the TAG Heuer brand.

One of the things that Jean-Claude seemingly identified is that while TAG Heuer had some impressive offerings over the last decade, few of their products felt particularly timeless or classy. Knowingly or not, Biver’s mission seemed to be one that included returning fake TAG Heuer to being a design icon. Part of that is intelligently leveraging everything the brand has done until now. The best way to do that? Look at what the brand’s collectors are pining over. Particularly interesting to many serious watch collectors are driving-themed chronographs from the 1960s and 1970s. Who was making a lot of those? Heuer of course. Thus, TAG Heuer today “owns” the history of making these old chronographs, which are today coveted by uber fans. Does it make sense to make those same designs again for today?

This very question has been one of the most popular in the contemporary watch industry, but it can be answered in the affirmative in a surprisingly large number of ways. Sometimes rebuilding something old works out to being an amazing idea, and sometimes the idea is dead before it left the factory. In answering the question of how to make history relevant for today, fake TAG Heuer has never answered better than with the steel case fake TAG Heuer Heritage Autavia Calibre Heuer 02. I’ll attempt to explain my reasoning for this below.

New Launched UK Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 Replica Watches Review

The trend of vintage-inspired watches is still going strong in 2017 and one of the most talked about watches at Baselworld this year was the Intra-Matic 68 by Hamilton. Not only is it inspired by a vintage Hamilton chronograph, it also has a reverse panda dial, which is in fashion right now. To me, this new Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 is a logical progression from the two-handed Intra-Matic watch that was introduced by Hamilton in 2012. The two are not identical, but similar in spirit. So does the black dial replica Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 live up to all of its hype? Let’s take a closer look.

Now, a little history lesson is required before we begin, because it is necessary to understand the origins of this watch. The steel case fake Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 is, as its name might suggest, based on a vintage chronograph from the ’60s called the Chronograph B, which has a reverse panda dial with a black background and white registers. There’s a Chronograph A too – surprise, surprise – and it has a reverse configuration with white background and black registers.

Hamilton has history in creating modern reissues of vintage chronographs. Remember the delicate fake Hamilton Pan Europ from 2011? That particular chronograph was also based on a vintage Hamilton watch design from the ’70s and it’s a handsome watch with lots of fans. And if anything, I think the Intra-Matic 68 looks even better.

We begin with the case, which is probably the most “controversial” thing about this watch. It’s not the design that is contentious, it has pretty straight lugs and a thin bezel, which are both design traits that you will see on vintage watches. What is widely debated about this watch, however, is the size. You see, at 42mm it is a tad large, especially when you consider its vintage roots and somewhat dressy overall aesthetics. Because of the large case size, the crown and pushers look a little oversized too. That said, I really like the vintage-style chronograph pushers here.

The bigger problem for me is the thickness. The white second hand Hamilton replica didn’t reveal the thickness but it must be around 14mm or so, and that’s too thick for a watch like this. Bear in mind, a fake Rolex Submariner is about 13mm. But I guess that can’t be helped considering it has an automatic-winding movement (more on the movement later).

The good thing about the Intra-Matic 68’s rather beefy case is the water resistance. When I first saw the watch, I thought it would only be 50 meters tops, but Hamilton says the Intra-Matic 68 can do 100 meters. This is a refreshing change from the usual 30 or 50 meters that we often get from a dressy chronograph watch, and not to mention that chronographs are also notoriously harder to make water-resistant.

That’s not to say that it has been completely ruined by its large case. Oh no. It still looks great of course, but like I said when I first wrote about the Intra-Matic 68 when it was announced, if Hamilton had released it in 39mm or 40mm, it would have been perfect. But I guess that’s just me and what other old-school watch lovers might think. And to be absolutely clear, 42mm for this piece is still not too bad, because at least all other elements of the case and dial are in proportion.

The Review Of The New UK Citizen Eco-Drive One Replica Watches Present To You

When I first put this black dial replica Citizen Eco-Drive One watch on my wrist after sizing the bracelet – I had a moment of déjà vu. Suddenly I was much younger, in the college, pre-watch nerd phase of my life, and listening to a then girlfriend’s grandfather proudly showing me his watch. It was easily one of the most memorable “watch” experiences of my early life.

I don’t even recall how the conversation back then started, but suddenly this retired state Supreme Court judge takes off his yellow gold-toned watch on a matching bead-style bracelet and tells me how he recently got it upon retiring. “For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted the thinnest watch possible.” He tells me. It was a Longines actually, and I remember being fascinated by the idea that someone’s aspiration was wearing a very thin timepiece. My mind focused on all the possible practical reasons for such a long-standing desire. Perhaps thin watches were very hard to come by? Perhaps they were very expensive? Perhaps he had a particular qualm with sleeves and never liked to get anything stuck. To this day I don’t remember exactly why the honorable judge grandfather of this historical girlfriend had such a particular fetish for very thin watches, but I do remember how excited he got. Suddenly, I’m excited by a watch in the very same way.

From a sheer engineering perspective, the stainless steel case fake Citizen Eco-Drive One collection is a marvel. I was fortunate enough to be in Japan with Citizen at their Toyko headquarters when this product was officially revealed. The pride on the face of the high manager at the brand was palpable when he first unveiled “the world’s thinnest light-powered watch.” With a case that is just 2.98mm thick, it really just looked like a metal wafer attached to a bracelet. I could tell that to replica Citizen, this was a major achievement. Now the hard part is conveying that Citizen news to the world and why the Eco-Drive One is a truly remarkable and thoroughly Japanese timepiece. For lovers of Japan’s culture (and their watches) the fake Citizen Eco-Drive One is everything that is right about the country’s still important watch industry.

Wearing the fancy replica Citizen Eco-Drive One is a unique experience – both positive and at times mentally unnerving. I say the latter because even though you are wearing a watch, it is so thin that it is easy to forget you are wearing a watch. Forget the relatively light weight of the comfortable, mostly steel case and bracelet, and think about what it feels like to wear a more average-sized watch all the time, and then looking to your wrist and perceiving that no watch case is there! At least that is how the Eco-Drive One looks. It just feels so impossibly thin, your brain doesn’t register the case as even being there.

 

With the replica Citizen Eco-Drive One watch on, I like to measure it up to other watches and consider how many Eco-Drive Ones I can stack in there. I have watches that could accommodate the thickness of seven exquisite replica Citizen cases. The in-house made Citizen Eco-Drive movement is a marvel unto itself, and about 1mm thick. In my article introducing the Eco-Drive One watch, I discussed how much needed to be packed into the case. There is the sapphire crystal, then fake Citizen Eco-Drive dial (a specially made type of prism plastic that allows light to enter), the photovoltaic cell, then movement, battery, and of course the case itself.

The movement is simple in purpose given the size, but it works to the watch’s advantage. Japan is a “feature cramming” culture, so when you see something straight forward and minimal like this design – you can’t help but love it. This is an old school-conceived Japanese watch. The design is all about celebrating an aesthetic which merges machine and jewelry, as well as a focus on small material details such as the finishing on the hands and the cermet material bezel. This latter element is important given that it is a stiff material and helps prevent the fake Citizen Eco-Drive One watch from being damaged or bent.

The Eco-Drive quartz movement offers just the time with hours and minutes – and holds 100 days of power when fully charged. That is only a bit less than the thicker Eco-Drive movements. I really like the Eco-Drive One with these hands and nothing more. This is design restraint in a way we rarely see from Citizen in products that are sold outside of Japan. If anything, the design alone is reason for enthusiasts to like the Eco-Drive One – the super slim case is just the icing on the cake.

At sizes like this, world records don’t really matter. This is the thinnest light-powered quartz watch in the world, but not the thinnest quartz watch in the world. That record likely goes to something much more delicate than the Eco-Drive one. Remember that part of the pride for Citizen isn’t just that they made a very thin Eco-Drive. It is that they made a very thin watch that is practical and meant to last a long time. Sure a thicker watch case is going to offer more durability in general. That isn’t the point. The point is that Citizen spent a lot of time making sure that their thin watch would put up with daily abuse and life like any other watch. This is a message you’ll rarely hear them articulate, but it is an important part of what makes the Citizen Eco-Drive One a special timepiece.

The Review Of The Excellent New UK Replica Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph Watches

Released last year, the elegant and complicated blue dial replica Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph now sees a wonderfully deep blue limited edition done in platinum. The latest edition to Chopard’s haute horologerie L.U.C range, this iteration of the Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is limited to 20 pieces. Chopard’s high-end watchmaking prowess tends to be underrated in my opinion, but having just approached the 21st birthday of the Chopard Manufacture, we’ve seen countless pieces that elicit horological envy of the highest order. Let’s see what this limited edition, Geneva Seal-bearing, blue-dialed perpetual calendar chronograph piece has to offer.

 

The luminous pointer fake Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Chronograph sits among Chopard’s range topping collection of totally in-house manufactured pieces which are worthy of the L.U.C moniker. L.U.C stands for Louis-Ulysse Chopard, the brand’s founder and a skilled maker of chronometer movements in his own right. Originally released in 2016, this updated version differentiates itself with a platinum case and very attractive blue dial.

One of the most striking features of this L.U.C Perpetual Chronoraph is the blue guilloche dial. The sunburst effect, which originates not from the center of the dial but from the applied Chopard signature, contrasts beautifully with the also applied Roman numeral hour markers. At twelve o’clock center, just below the signature, we see a large date aperture split into separate windows, a design feature which is carried forward from the previous version of this model. The chronograph display is done in the white ring around the sub-dials with the inner dials telling (from left to right) the am/pm, day, month, and leap year. The dial has a ton going on but there is a refined elegance to the piece that is uniquely wonderful replica Chopard.

The sub-dials, printed mostly in stark white, add depth and interest to the dial without making it overly busy or difficult to read. The 6 o’clock sub-dial shows the moon phase against a field of stars which features actual constellations. This is probably an especially helpful complication for those afflicted with lycanthropy. And, of course the moon phase is accurate to one day every 122 years assuming the watch runs for that time. Hands across the board are highly polished and the time hands at the center feature lume, a nice addition for a luxury piece. All of this is positioned beneath a sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating.

Platinum is somewhat seldom used in watch case making due in part to its extreme cost, the heavier weight, and the difficulty it can provide in manufacture and finishing. Chopard replica are clearly up to the challenge and have succeeded beautifully with the L.U.C’s alternating brushed and polished 45mm wide and 15mm thick case. I imagine that all 45mm of width are necessary when you consider the size of such a highly complicated movement and the fact that the various sub-dials are already positioned so close together. As you’d expect, turning the watch reveals a sapphire equipped exhibition case back to enable easy viewing of the caliber 03.10-L which is based on Chopard’s 03.07-L hand-wound flyback chronograph movement.

UK Wonderful Zenith Chronomaster Heritage Limited Edition By Timeless Luxury Watches Review

Timeless Luxury Watches is proud to announce our first collaboration with one of our all-time favorite watch companies, Zenith. As much or more than any other watch company in the world, white gold case replcia Zenith is known for its chronographs, so deciding to make the blue steel second hand fake Zenith Chronomaster Heritage Limited Edition, using their legendary El Primero automatic movement, was an easy choice.

Within Zenith’s extensive portfolio of chronographs, however, the challenge was to create something that was true to the El Primero’s history without duplicating Zenith’s portfolio. To do that, we went back to the classic A273, one of delicate replcia Zenith’s dressiest interpretations of a chronograph.

To recapture its understated appeal, we created a similar, yet unique, dial. As always, we have included a blue element to our limited edition’s sub-dial and seconds hands, just like the A273 had. However, while both use a sunburst metallic dial, our new white dial replcia Zenith Chronomaster Heritage Limited Edition moves away from the original’s silver in favor of a subtle champagne color. We think that this dial color offers a very pleasant contrast with the blued hands. We’re also quite fond of no-date watches at Timeless, so it should be no surprise that, like the original, the fake Zenith Timeless Chronomaster Heritage features a simple, chronograph-only layout.

While perfecting the dial was challenging, choosing the case was not. The obvious case to utilize from Zenith’s modern portfolio was the Heritage 146 for its strong resemblance to the original. The 146’s lugs are bolder and more contemporary, but the versatile 38mm size was ideal for our purposes and the pushers matched its vintage style perfectly. However, the crown was thicker than what we were looking for, so instead we opted for a somewhat thinner and more understated crown which better contributed to its dressy look.

We’re also pleased to offer three different straps, all priced identically, on the new blue leather strap replcia Zenith Chronomaster Heritage Limited Edition. Collectors can choose between brown, black, and blue straps, as well as three different lengths. That optionality makes this a watch to perfectly fit and match every buyer, right out of the box.

UK New Exquisite Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Lune Replica Watches Review – How’S The New One?

At SIHH 2017, Swiss Parmigiani debuted a new version of their best-selling Tonda 1950 collection with a moonphase-equipped variant known as the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Lune. Offered in a a steel case, the watch seeks to blend value and complexity, for an attractive dress watch with some horological nerd appeal.
The watch industry today is facing a series of value crises. One of them is finding the right type of watch for the right type of price that today’s consumers are keen to purchase. Ending are the days of exotic high-complication mechanical watches that don’t seem to solve a need or fit any particular audience. Parmigiani and other brands have had to re-think their approach to blending simplicity with the mechanically fascinating, in luxury items best-suited for today’s buying environment when it is very much a buyer’s market.

The delicate fake Parmigiani Tonda 1950 Lune is a safe bet playing on the cyclically popular theme of producing elegant time + moonphase watches. Of course here, the Tonda 1950 also has the date. Such watches are appealing because they are practical with just enough emotional appeal (the moonphase complication) to satisfy those who want to wear something that reminds them of why they love high-end watches, but isn’t overly decadent or excessive.

For whatever reason, I neglected to take pictures of the rear of the watch while meeting with black dial fake Parmigiani back at SIHH 2017. This tends to happen in the overly-rushed atmosphere of trade show meetings. The movement inside of the Tonda 1950 Lune is the in-house made Parmigiani caliber PF708 automatic, which is of course lovely and visible through the sapphire crystal window on the back of the watch. The PF708 is a variant of the PF702 automatic which sits in the more simple time-only versions of the Tonda 1950 – though it adds a few complications and some thickness to the case.

The PF708 automatic movement is finely decorated and operates at 3Hz (21,600 bph) with 48 hours of power reserve. I’m not entirely sure why it isn’t a 4Hz movement, but these days that doesn’t seem to matter too much. The movement builds upon the time with subsidiary seconds layout of the PF702 by adding a date complication, along with a prominent moonphase indicator window under 12 o’clock. Parmigiani once again offers an “open” date window with a few visible numerals that looks like a small grin at the bottom of the dial. Detailing is excellent, but one must ask themselves whether the date window needed to be so large, as well as if it would not have looked more attractive with the date disc being darker in color to match the opaline black dial.

The moonphase indicator has a “double window” which means both halves of the moonphase indicator disk are visible. This looks cool but offers limited utility. The idea is that you can see the phase of the moon as it looks in both the northern and southern hemisphere of Earth. This is neat, but of course they are simple mirror images of one another. Thus, this is mostly an aesthetic choice as opposed to something which is really practical. With that said, few people argue that a moonphase indicator window is practical – as this complication is mostly emotional (and pretty).

One design wrinkle that I actually like is the added text around the moonphase indicator window (the moon representations are in rose gold) which allows you to better read the information. You not only get a lower scale of the number of days left for that moon cycle, but also “New, First Quarter, Full, and Last Quarter” markers for the phase of the moon. Assuming the watch keeps running, the moonphase indicator only needs to be adjusted once every three years. Not the most accurate on the market, but it isn’t as though collectors are clamoring for ultra-precise moonphase indicators – for them it is all about the sex appeal of the look. Some people will surely complain that this is simply unnecessary text on the dial – they have a point. With that said, there are so many moonphase complication watches on the market that offering something just a bit different and interesting to the eye is a virtue for Parmigiani.

Like the standard three hand Tonda 1950, the Tonda 1950 Lune has a 39.1mm wide round case – which looks great, isn’t too small, and has lots of distinctive Parmigiani brand DNA in the design. Given the added module for the complications, the case is about 2mm thicker at 9.6mm in total thickness with 30 meters of water resistance. This actually helps the watch feel a bit more substantial for those who feel that 39mm wide is on the smaller side of what they typically prefer. Like I said, as a dress watch with some masculine appeal, the Tonda 1950 Lune is a logical choice.

Another design difference to help compensate for the thicker case is a larger crown, which assists with the feeling of harmonious proportions overall. Over the dial is a domed sapphire crystal – which like many domed sapphire crystals does suffer from some glare due to a lack of top-applied AR-coating. Parmigiani replica with white gold case is by no means alone in not putting AR-coating on the top side of a crystal (even though the bottom side has it). They fear that the coating will scratch off and that the watch will then look bad. This is actually less of a problem these days, and I’m increasingly putting pressure on brands to address the issue of glare by getting vigilant with their suppliers. This needs to end in the area of high-end timepieces. An end to glare (for all who care)!

On the wrist, the Tonda 1950 Lune is comfortable and attractive with its black alligator Hermès strap. As a dress watch, it is soothing on the eyes but also a bit different, which is good. It also has some masculinity to it which I feel is important to note since the black leather strap replica Parmigiani Tonda 1950 is both a men’s and women’s model – and the Lune is more for men only in my opinion.

White Pointer UK Replica Seiko Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai SRPB09 Limited Edition Watches Review

Earlier this year, Seiko replica introduced two “limited edition” watches to their Prospex line, the Blue Lagoon SRPB11 “Turtle” and SRPB09 “Samurai.” The new Turtle is similar to the SRP777 we reviewed here but it is the SRPB09 Samurai that grabbed my attention. The original fake Seiko Samurai watch was introduced in 2004, only to be discontinued a few years later. One of the less common “nicknamed” Seikos, I was thrilled to see that the Samurai was making a comeback (in blue, nonetheless). It’s funny, but when I got this watch I wasn’t actively looking at watches to buy, much less divers.

Oddly, perhaps, I always seem to inadvertently have a blue Seiko dive watch in my rotation. I had a Seiko SNZH53 to quench that thirst and while that is a great value watch, it lacked some refinement in the design and finish, and so was slowly falling out of my usual rotation. When I saw the blue dial fake Seiko Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai SRPB09 and finally came across one for sale, the design, famed Prospex quality, and reasonably affordable price point worked in tandem to push me over the edge.

The original Samurai (SBDA003) was produced from 2004-2008 and the watch’s moniker was derived from its handset which resembled a Samurai’s sword. Though this handset has been replaced in the SRPB09, the angular lines of the case, specifically the unique lugs, have been retained from the original Samurai. This watch combines all the elements that made the Prospex line famous; history, reliability, great value, and a unique case design that I’ve always loved and admired. Though I also quite like the Turtle cushion case, for me, there’s nothing like this angular classic design.

The stainless steel case clocks in at 43.8mm wide and 13mm thick which is par for the course for Seiko divers. While this is quite large, the watch was designed to be a tool watch and the priority during a dive is legibility of the dial/bezel. You’ll be happy to hear, however, that for the average desk diver like me, the watch wears small and quite comfortably, thanks to the short, slanted lugs. My wrist is 7″ around, which should give you an idea of how the watch would wear.

The bezel is anodized aluminum and 120-click, unidirectional with excellent grip. While I am not a diver, I do live in the cold (and landlocked) Midwestern United States and the bezel had plenty of grip even with a couple of layers of gloves on. I’m also happy to report that the bezel pip lines up nicely with the middle of the 12’o clock marker, something my SNZH53 Seiko 5 just couldn’t seem to do. The crystal is flat Hardlex and the watch has a solid steel Tsunami caseback, with a “LIMITED EDITION” engraving. Besides the angular lugs, the other notable features on the luminous scale replica Seiko Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai SRPB09 are the screw-down crown and the drilled lugs. The drilled lugs are a blessing for someone prone to frequent strap changes, and the screw-down crown is well proportioned with a texture that helps add visual interest and improve grip, and the crown guards ensure the overall design remains coherent. While neither drilled lugs or a screw-down crown are rare or unique to the wonderful replica Seiko, they serve as good examples of how this watch marries form and function.

The highlight of this brown leather strap fake Seiko Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai SRPB09 watch is, of course, the color scheme. The bezel is two shades, with the first 15 minutes in a turquoise blue while the rest of it is a more familiar deep blue that we’ve seen in several other Seiko offerings. The dial is similar to the dark blue of the bezel but has a semi-glossy finish that makes it wonderfully multi-faceted – so much so that I spent several minutes in the sunlight enjoying the interaction between the light and the dial. Head-on or in shade, the dial looks matte but there is a sunburst quality to it when light strikes it from an angle.

The replica Seiko Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai SRPB09 has only a date window, leaving out the day of the week. No complaints from me as I’m someone who prefers to have no day/date window at all if given the choice, but it’s at least not as distracting to the dial’s symmetry. The hands for this delicate fake Seiko Prospex Blue Lagoon Samurai SRPB09 are very similar if not the same as those on the Seiko Monster line, which are super legible and do the job very well, not leaving much to be desired. The lume, which is Seiko’s proprietary LumiBrite compound, is one of the best I’ve seen. I wouldn’t be surprised if the watch could ruin your circadian rhythm while sitting on your bedside. It also fades in an almost linear fashion and keeps the dial legible for plenty of time. I had no trouble checking the time even at the end of a two-and-a-half-hour movie.

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.
