Today, we will take another look at a special watch from a brand which we don’t often visit, and it is an Audemars Piguet replica. I have reviewed two other Audemars watches and if I recall, they were of resembling appearance, black and gold dual-tone. However, today’s watch is stainless steel and navy blue, a combination of colors you’ll mostly find in fake Rolex watches.
So, what are going to talk about? No more guesswork, we’ll touch upon all the numerous features present of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica. I am very much excited to begin as a single glance at the watch shows there is a lot to cover. Without further ado, let’s begin the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chronograph blue dial replica review.
I’ll begin this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chronograph blue dial replica with my appreciation of the stainless steel allure. The finish of this fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak catches the eye almost immediately light hits it. This is a very satisfactory matter to consider the things packed into the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chronograph blue dial replica.
In the Audemars Piguet tradition, the dial of the watch is in a highly textured tapisserie arrangement. It has a nice flashy color to it. This is the only part of the watch that is not stainless steel. Every single thing is in a highly polished stainless steel finish.
The hour marks of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica are silver colored slits with white inserts. They are shortened at the edges where they meet the three sub-dials. At the 12-hour mark, the slits are doubled and right under this is the Audemars Piguet logo. The hour and minute hands are rectangular and similar in design with the hour mark slits also with white inserts. The second hand is like a long silver rapier. The date window is lodged between the 4 and 5-hour marks. It is very obviously with a white background.
The bezel is plain without a tachymeter. It has instead 8 screws. This is a common design feature in AP watches as well. Another unique aspect of the watch is the nut-like design of the crown and the two push buttons on either side of it to control the chronographs. It is consistent with the industrial grade design that was perpetuated by the hexagonal screws on the bezel of the watch.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chronograph blue dial replica video review would be remiss without mentioning its movement. The movement of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chronograph blue dial replica is automatic. It runs on a Japanese Miyota variety as I would have expected. It is all housed in a case culminating in a back that is really nice and attracting. I would look at it at any opportunity. Royal Oak is embossed quite thickly that you might be able to spell it out just by feeling it out with your fingers.
The bracelet of the fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is a continuation of the stainless steel theme. But it is also unique. It is not just a straight chain connection. It’s rather a more intricate design that is appealing to the eye. It is short, however, coming in at 170mm long and 27mm wide but this is most likely because if doesn’t seem to be adjustable as it ends in a butterfly clasp and the watch is a continuous circle with no opening.
As you would imagine, given the good name of mid-20th century Panerai, and the appalling circumstances of World War II, the original Mare Nostrum prototype was a proper monstrum of a watch. For starters, it measured some 52mm wide, and was named Mare Nostrum after the phrase first used by the Romans. Besides, first revived by Italian nationalists following the 1861 unification of Italy and then by the fascists of World War II. As such, the origins of the name “Mare Nostrum” can be dated back to the era of the enlarged Roman Empire, but one really need not look back that far in time to have a clue as to why it was named as such in the Italy of the early 1940s.
Funnily enough, most sources say that the 1943 prototype of the Mare Nostrum never made it into production because of the turmoils of the war – sounds like a lazy explanation, since at what other time than during war would a watch designed specifically for the military be of any real use? Anyhow, the replica Panerai produced other devices under the name Mare Nostrum as well- so while they weren’t too interested in the watch, they were keen on the name, it seems. Other Panerai Mare Nostrum items included delay and timing devices for torpedoes and some other explosives used by the Italian army during WWII – just check out that amazing looking Mare Nostrum chronograph boasting a Minerva caliber and some nifty anti-vibration devices.
Add to all this research that Mr. Jose Pereztroika of perezcope.com has conducted – read that here – and you’ll learn that the Mare Nostrum’s case design actually is much closer to what Panerai had been doing in the mid-1950s, rather than in the early ’40s. Panerai has a fairly poorly documented history and the Mare Nostrum is a most fitting example – there is literally one actual detailed image from the ’50s, the one that you see further above, and that’s about it. Still, the Mare Nostrum has definitely existed and it is for everyone to decide how much weight they give to the fact of whether or not Italian navy commanders were rocking it during World War II.
The Replica Pieria Mare Nostrum Chronograph measures just 42mm wide. This is not a new-found thing either. There were some limited editions produced in Panerai’s pre-Vendome era. This, by the way, essentially means pre-Richemont (just the names have changed, but nothing else). On a side note, “pre-V” is likely used so much because Panerai, auctioneers and fans of the brand likely much prefer calling it the obscure “pre-Vendome” rather than “pre-Richemont” that mere mortal watch enthusiasts could realize.
The km/h bezel is an amazing addition on a watch supposedly designed for ship commanders. Add to this the fact that this being a regular tachymeter scale, any other unit of speed would work just the same. Take this as a hint on how many people actually use the tachymeter scales on their percfect watches.
Positively Speaking, the Mare Nostrum Chronograph is one extremely unusual Panerai. The traditional, piston-style chronograph pushers, the tachymeter bezel, the small case size, the nicely curved, long lugs, and the blue-tan color combination individually would make any Panerai the odd one out. This could fire back though – the Mare Nostrum has a special history, with hardly any documentation or actual pieces remaining from whichever era it actually belongs – and this will raise a few flags for the cautious, super-nerdy collector who this is very much exclusively aimed for.
As all listed above, it is nice to see the fake Panerai do something significantly, leaving the Luminors and Radiomirs on the side for a moment and presenting a look so scarcely encountered from them – I wouldn’t be surprised that Panerai is actually testing the waters here (of course, in my deep heart), as I would be happy see more special and personalized designs.
Collaborations and tie-ins are nothing new to the fake Hublot watch. The brand thrives on them. And as part of the company’s release strategy, the replica Hublot has also developed various limited-edition watches to memorize these relationships. For the most part, these limited-edition watches are variations of existing references – new dial colors, new case materials and nice straps or something like that. It doesn’t matter at all, but I’m sure most of the r readers would prefer to see something a little different and special. It seemed like fake Hublot has heard our excuse because the limited-edition replica Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is one of the more outstanding and impressive limited-edition Big Bang watch which I never found out till today.
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 which 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 includes Sang Bleu magazine, a publication that focuses on contemporary art and culture; Sang Bleu Physical, a street-wear 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 replica 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 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 fake Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu measures 45mm wide, which is standard stuff for Big Bang watches.
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. There are also big changes in the dial.
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 help 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.
Overall, the replica Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is absolutely 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. As a matter of fact, all brands should aspire to the same goals as the cheap fake Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu. Limited-edition pieces shouldn’t just be a piece of pleas 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 replica Big Bang Sang Bleu.
For fans of Hublot replicas, the Big Bang Sang Bleu is an easy recommendation. It is a genuinely fresh take on the Big Bang collection and it is also really good-looking in the flesh.
There will be auction at Antiquorum’s “Significant Modern and Vintage Timepieces” in Geneva, on May 15. It is a great chance for collectors and obsessive watch lovers to get some precious pieces. In the midst of 500 watches, we select deluxe Replica Patek Philippe and Rolex models.
At this activity, one of some Rolex timepieces with the “Spade of Oman” logo is going to be offered. It is called “Oyster Perpetual Date, Explorer II”, which was launched in 1974 and sold by Asprey of London. Having the first chance, this great mechanical watch for adventurer and proficient explorers has an anticipated presale price. The unusual “Asprey” signature on the outside caseback makes it to become one of the good-looking collectors.

One of the most attractive pieces at Antiquorum auction is the Fake Patek Philippe with pink dial. This stainless steel chronograph, with tachometer scale was produced in 1941 and then sold two years later.
The amazing replica Antiquorum Patek Philippe 130 Pink Dial Watch, another extraordinary watch from Patek Philippe is the model that its multi-functional chronograph is made of 18k white gold and features perpetual calendar, 24 hour signal, tachometer and moon phases.
Renault announced the R.S. 17 at last month at an event in London, a beast of a Formula 1 machine set to make its debut at the 2017 Australian Grand Prix later this month. Replica Bell & Ross announced the new Bell & Ross BR RS17 watches very soon, including many layout design and material factors found in the recently announced Renault Formula 1 racer. It would be simpler for many brands to try and take an aviation watch and totally screw everything up by deciding they want an F1 racing-inspired line (of an iconic design, nonetheless). Nevertheless, replica Bell & Ross determined to basically go all out with the layout and material selections, and the result actually is really functional and practical, also won my heart.
The chronograph design is multiple colored but standard and highly legible with a small seconds sub-dial placed at 3 o’clock and a 30-minute counter 9 o’clock. Both sub-dials, together with the date window highlight subtle touches of color against the carbon fiber dial that also carry into the central chronograph seconds hand.
As far as the dial is concerned, the pushers for the chronograph operation and the crown have also been finished in almost the same color scheme that references more of the visual elements you’d find on the F1 racer. There’ no exhibition case back, but the ceramic gives it a sleek look. You’ll see a picture of the rubber band above but this watch is also going to come with a black synthetic fabric strap.
This Bell & Ross BR watch is rather demure compared to the larger and even more colorful BR-X1. Bell & Ross made his mind to throw subtlety to the wind – because if you’re buying an F1-inspired 45mm Bell & Ross watch, then you’re probably not trying to have your wrist candy blend into the crowd.
The Bell & Ross is bigger with the width of 45m. One piece of carbon fiber, the irregular pattern on the case of forged carbon watches lends a rugged aesthetic to the dynamic and loud colors on the dials of these replica watches. One more, it’ a beautiful, intense-looking watch in that the build and structure of the imposing BR-X1 combined with the vivid colors will make sure that the person wearing it draws much attention.
If you’d have told me my best favorite Omega in the year of 2017 would be a two-tone Speedmaster with a green bezel, I’d have enjoyed a good laugh at your expense. I like a Speedy as much as the next guy, but I like them in the straight-up classical format. For me, the real lesson here is to never truly judge a watch until it’s on your wrist.
The crush I had on this watch was instant, and real. Earlier this year, I’d seen blue and black versions of the model that were the Baselworld centrepieces, and I loved them. But this was quite different. There was an instant, almost visceral reaction as I strapped it to my wrist.
The grey sunburst dial, emerald green bezel insert, and yellow gold crown, pushers and bezel all work perfectly well together, adding up to a hefty dose of flash on the wrist, without being as hardcore as the fully gold versions. It’s also a look that speaks to the model’s heritage, the light dial reminiscent of the so-called ‘Italian-dialled’ Speedmasters of the ’80s, which were available in full steel or two-tone versions, made for Italian and German Markets.
But there’s more to the appeal of this watch than just the color scheme. There’s the case, which clocks in at a substantial 44.25mm, the smooth grey alligator strap, the Master Chronometer grade Calibre movement. And then there’s that face-like dial (which appears, in these pictures, to be frowning), with stacked totalisers – 60-minute and 12-hour counters at three, date and small seconds at nine – and of course the show-stealing moon-phase.
Not only does the starry sky and moon look like something you might have seen transmitted to earth on July 16, 1969, there’s also the boot print near the edge of the Sea of Tranquillity, right where Apollo XI landed. It’s a cute element that’s done in a meaningful way, rather than coming off as gimmicky. It’s absolutely less polarising than the cartoon dog on the dial of the Silver Snoopy Award Speedy.
For me, the real lesson here is to never truly judge a watch until it’s on your wrist. If I were just looking at photography, I’d have quickly moved on, and missed out on wearing a great new take on an old classic.
Launching exclusively today is the latest collaborative watch between the UK’s The Watch Gallery and Hublot. However, if performance in the past is anything to continue, the new piece is set to be a sure-fire hit.
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Red marks the fourth such limited-edition timepiece between the Swiss watchmaker and UK retailer, which embraces four standalone stores and also operates the watch department of Selfridges. The duo’s past Classic Fusion co-creations have sold out in weeks, such as last year’s elegant three-hand automatic and a more sporty chronograph that fused ceramic and titanium for the first time. Both were limited to 35 pieces, their 45mm designs featuring The Watch Gallery’s signature blue hue that was found not only on the dials and case back, but also the seconds hand and stitched on the black alligator-rubber hybrid straps.
We could see the fact through the name, the 45mm Aerofusion Chronograph Red explores a new colour palette, its cool red accents a sporting nod that’s having something of a moment right now. Striking, red lacquered rings offset a matching chronograph second hand set on a skeletonized movement, while red stitching on the black rubber and alligator strap continue the crimson motif. A fusion of titanium case with black ceramic bezel – all satin-finished and polished – add further robustness and echo the house’s innovative use of industrial materials (soon after launching in the 1980s, the replica Hublot made a name for itself merging precious and industrial materials, becoming the first to mix gold and rubber). Indeed polished titanium subtly makes its way throughout the new chronograph – on the screws, crown, and pushers, however, a satin-finished titanium case back is engraved with the edition number.
Powering the 13.4mm thick watch is the 207-components, self-winding HUB1155 calibre with a 42-hour power reserve. Water resistant to 50m, the piece also features a date display at 6 o’clock.
As Adrian Maronneau, The Watch Gallery’s director of buying and merchandising, said: “For our fourth limited edition it was time to shake things up to some extent, dare I say add a bit of spice, something that fake Hublot is an absolute master of.”
The launch of the replica watch was marked by a glittering event in London last night, presided over by David Coleridge, chairman of The Watch Gallery, and Jean-Claude Biver, chairman of Hublot. The latter promised that anyone buying the watch that evening would be his guest to visit Hublot manufacture’s in Switzerland.
‘You will leave at 5.15 in the morning from Heathrow and return the same day at 10pm,” said Mr Biver with his signature sunny smile. “And get to have lunch with me.” At the time five pieces had already sold, so expect a rather large affair….
Most recently the company has launched the Series 2 and 3 Limited Edition Rolex Daytonas which will soon be followed by the launch of the Series 2 and 3 Limited Edition Submariners (apparently Series 1 is quite popular with Mr Bond himself Daniel Craig, although he’s supposed to be an replica Omega man, but that’s another story entirely!).Aesthetically and in suppleness and comfort, it resembles a rubber strap, while its resistance is comparable to that of a metal bracelet.
Highly reflective of current trends the Series 2 (pictured above) appears to be the more customized of the two editions, having received the full PVD treatment. This is understated, masculine luxury at its finest. Not being a Rolex man per se myself, I have to admit that I did not pay too much attention to the launch and so I thought it was time I take a closer look to find out what all the fuss is about.
Series 3 is somewhat a more subdued affair and non-enthusiasts may be forgiven for not realizing that this is a customized piece. Whilst it also looks quite cute with its monochrome design, brushed case finish, carbon coated bezel and white chronograph hand vaguely reminisce of the iconic ‘Paul Newman’ Rolex Daytonas of the 1970s, in my opinion you’re better of with Series 2. The photos don’t really do it justice but effectively what this means is that this particular Daytona started off life with a black dial but over the years it has faded to a nice rich brown color.
As far as customized rolex go these two are certainly quite nice. They have maintained enough of the timepiece’s original character that they are easily recognizable and the quality of the work is excellent.
Best of all though this replica Rolex Daytona Series comes with boxes, papers and pretty much everything else you could ask for! As you can see it is in excellent condition with no obvious marks or scratches. The original case and bracelet are also in excellent condition, particularly given the timepiece’s age, and if you turn the piece over you will discover the original, unblemished caseback with the word “Rolex” printed horizontally.
There are few watches that elicit more of an emotional response from collectors than a good quality Rolex Daytona. In a similar vein to Bamford & Sons, Projext X Designs offers both bespoke and limited edition cheap replica watches, with the latter being innovated in highly limited runs of just 24 watches which will not be repeated once sold out.
The steel, black-dialed chronograph is one of the most popular watch types. it’s a versatile, utilitarian classic and almost every brand has the understanding of the theme. iwc’s is their everlasting popular pilot’s chronograph, a mix of military style and casual elegance. it’s a classic in reality as well in name.
should you have focused on the iwc over the past several months, you’ll have noticed it’s on a few of an aviation kick, refreshing the whole pilot’s family and adding some tantalising novelties like the limited edition ‘le petit prince’ edition of the big pilot and the ingenious timezoner. since these are really so impressive, they’re not the bread and butter of iwc’s pilot’s line. that falls to fresh faces like the mark xviii, and updated stalwarts like this one, the pilot’s chronograph.
when you see the watch at the first glance, you could doubt if it is the same watch. but take another look carefully, and numerous small tweaks become apparently different.
the most obvious is the removal of the altimeter-style triple date window, which in turn allows for the iwc branding to be moved back to the three o’clock position. also gone are the printed arabic minutes at the outer edge of the indices. all minor changes, but they add up to a dial that’s slightly simpler and certainly closer to the watch’s historical origins.
the other changes concern the strap. for the leather version, the alligator strap has been replaced with santoni calfskin – a nod to the watch’s utilitarian roots that doesn’t detract from the premium offering of the pilot. the stainless steel bracelet – always one of the best quality offerings at the price-point – has also received a makeover and is exceptionally comfortable, owing to the deployant clasp with micro-adjustment, which allows you to make small adjustments on the wrist, simply by pressing the iwc logo.
these changes aren’t earth-shattering in their magnitude, but all add up to a replica watch that is a marked improvement in my mind. the design is cleaner, more balanced and more comfortable to wear.
Do you remember the amazing launch of Oris’s Divers Sixty-Five at Baselworld in March this year? In response to positive feedback from press and buyers and other individuals or organizations, Oris has seen fit to expand the line with a new Divers Sixty-Five model which will features a beautifully retro-toned grey and blue dial. The appeal of this new model is somewhat softer than its black-dialed sibling, and it is inspired by the luxurious vacation scene which surrounds the fashionable French town of Deauville.
If you have a look at the inside, it’s the same Oris 733 movement, which is based on the Sellita SW200 and it can get time and date displayed at six. The Oris Divers Sixty-Five is weird for Oris. It’s dive watches replica are generally large, over-engineered and is more useful to professional divers.
By contrast, the Oris Divers Sixty-Five is more suitable for a laid back vacation divers, especially in this light grey, Deauville blue, and pale-green color scheme. If you are the kind of people who wears a conservative dress cheap replica watches all week at the office, the Oris Divers Sixty-Five will be your jeans-and-a-t-shirt-ready and egger to be matched with a swimsuit the next time you head south.
The size of Oris Divers Sixty-Five is 40mm, which is wonderful, and the rubber strap inside is soft, comfy, and a welcome nod to the tropical straps common to the early days of diving. The price of Oris is 1750 CHF which is the same as the black model, Oris has prepared a appealing and well-priced package with a welcome color option added, and it will be essentially a vacation for your wrist.
Apart from the new dial coloring, there is no change between the Oris Divers Sixty-Five “Deauville” and the original version, still keeping the same 40mm steel case, black dive bezel, screw down crown, and green luminous markers. With 100m water resistance, the case back is steel, and the new Oris Divers Sixty-Five “Deauville” sports the same eye-catching bubble-curved sapphire crystal. I currently have a chance to review the black dialed Oris Divers Sixty-Five, and the crystal is fantastic: it reflects light almost elusively at its outer curve and functions as a magnifier for the entire dial, and it’s easy to add to the charm and wrist presence of this already very appealing casual diver’s replica watches.
