The auction for the important modern and antique timepieces was held by Antiquorum on May 12th. Before the auction, the perfect fake Patek Philippe has caused a heat and many professional watch collectors have estimated the final price of this model.
The black dial copy watch was auctioned by the high price which is 8 times of the original estimated price. The estimated price of this model before the auction was only 50,000-80,000 Swiss Francs. But the final price was reaching to 401,000 Swiss Francs.
Why is it so popular? The timepiece was released in 1996. The words of “PROTOTYPE” and “LABO” are designed on the dial and movement, meanwhile, the Comet power reserve indication has been designed on this model which is also the iconic feature of Nautilus Ref.3710/1A.
The distinctive octagon bezels will always make the perfect fake watches become the recognizable models in watchmaking industry. Do you know which watch brands have designed the charming models with these special bezels?
Girard-Perregaux Laureato was launched in 1975, becoming one of the earliest luxury sport watches. In 2016, the watch brand designed this flagship collection, creating the brand new appearance which meets the modern aesthetics with the obvious and outstanding octagon bezels. The highlight of thisGirard-Perregaux copy with white gold case must be the skeleton dial which allows the wearers to appreciate the sophistication of the movement.
2. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
As the pioneer of the octagon bezel, Audemars Piguet guided the trend at the beginning of 1970s. This year many new timepieces with upgraded design have enriched the family of the classic Royal Oak. The 39 mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak imitation watch successfully attracted the attention from all the watch lovers at SIHH. This timepiece was named as Jumbo, which is aiming to pay tribute to the original model.
For ordinary watch lovers, the models with grand complicated functions will be too expensive for them. However, it is also fortunately to have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of them. Here I will introduce several watches with high cost performance for men which you could afford.
Men’s first watch
For the new watch lovers, the first you consider may be the price. TAG Heuer copy with brown leather strap, Tudor and Oris will be good choices. Among these three models, what I love best is the TAG Heuer which features a charming dial, meanwhile, it is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters.
Men’s second watch
How to choose your second watch? It is better to choose the classic model. Look at the picture, all these three watches sport the distinctive look of retro style and they are all with high performance. The 43 mm Breitling Navitimer fake with green dial is my favorite one.The IWC and Zenith are both with the bronze cases which are now very popular in watchmaking industry.
The film “Interstellar” in 2014 has attracted lots of film lovers and the purport of love will be beyond time that Cooper and Murph delivered has moved lots of fans. The significant fake Hamiltonthat promoted the plot was reproduced after five years.
Hamilton Khaki Field copy watch with steel case features a black dial, on which the second hand is distinctive. The Eureka has been printed on the second hand to pay tribute to the word that Murph said after she solved a difficult problem that concerned the human destiny.
The improved calibre ETA the provides a power reserve of 80 hours, meanwhile, the timepiece is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters. It is really a good choice with the special significance and low price especially for the film fans.
The knockoff watches with automatic movement of Twenty～4 collection were launched last year in October. The round case and self-winding mechanical movement of that model was especially designed for modern women.
This year a brilliant Patek Philippe Twenty～4 copy watch has been released to demonstrate the beauty of the design with the densely engraved diamonds. There are totally 3,238 diamonds engraved on the dial, bezel, crown and bracelet.
The random-setting diamonds on the Patek Philippe fake with rose gold case present the brand’s high level of setting technique. Meanwhile, the movement driving the timepiece is also decorated exquisitely and through the transparent caseback, you will appreciate the sophisticated decorative art.
If you want to buy a wristwatch of Chopard, the models belonging to the L.U.C collection will be good choice. The features of this collection are classic, extraordinary craftsmanship and top quality. I believe the new Chopard L.U.C fake watch with rose gold case will amaze you.
The calibre L.U.C 96 has been regarded as the benchmark work that perfectly presents the traditional watchmaking craftsmanship. The new extraordinary Chopard copy watch equips the calibre 96.24-L that is only 3.3 mm. No matter the structure or polished finish, it is exquisite beyond comparison.
Of course this is not the most important part of this new knockoff watch with slate gray dial. The highlight is the tourbillon at 6 o’clock position. Since the movement is ultra thin, many watch lovers worry about the power reserve. With the advanced technology of the brand, this timepiece provides a power reserve of 65 hours.
Since 2013, Hauttman replica watches have been producing and designing timepieces with visually inspiring elements and robust construction. After recently partnering with Signs Time Movements in the Netherlands, the brand was able to take their designs to the next level thanks to the company’s in-house manufacturing and design capabilities. Recently, Hauttman announced the Hauttman Deep Discovery Chronograph watch, a visually impressive dive-style chronograph with sharp looks and one of the most comfortable custom straps around. With an enticing pre-order campaign and a growing waiting list of future customers, Hauttman is poised to become a major player in the emerging micro brand market.
The Hauttman Deep Discovery Chronograph fake watches feature a 316L stainless steel case that measures in at 42mm in diameter, a comfortable size for most wrists. It has been constructed with a range of brushed and polished surfaces but overall, the appearance is more utilitarian than “blingy” in a few ways. The integrated rubber strap and lug design is what really sets the watch apart from others in this price range when you consider the comfort. At 22mm in width, the strap is both hand-stitched and created with a custom combination of silicon and genuine shark leather. This soft combination of materials is flexible enough that it allows the watch to sit close to the wrist for a nice fit.
From an engineering perspective, the case is designed and manufactured according to Swiss standards of high precision. The case itself does not have a movement ring. Instead, the movement is fitted to the case directly with clamps and “pliers-style” extensions at the 6 and 12 o’clock positions, pressing the bezel to the case tightly. This patented case design is a remarkable and highly noticeable feature of the Hauttman Deep Discovery collection. This is just the beginning, and Hauttman’s upcoming models will reveal more information about their past and the future.
Looking at the dial, the Hauttman Deep Discovery Chronograph provides a simple two-register chronograph layout but with enough texture and visual interest to set the watch apart from its competitors. A custom handset together with applied metal indices take care of the time display. There’s also a generous application of luminous material on both the hands and the hour markers. This is also a good time to note that the Hauttman Deep Discovery Chronograph comes in three dial colors to meet whatever style preferences you might have when considering a dive-focused chronograph. A sapphire crystal covers both the front and back of the case and water resistance is rated at 200m thanks to the screw-down caseback with the custom engraved Hauttman logo.
For the movement, copy Hauttman decided on the ETA 2894-2, a reliable chronograph movement that is just slightly thinner than the immortal Valjoux 7750. The pushers on the side of the case allow for tactile and responsive operation, which should be expected when interacting with any watch in this price point. When you pair this kind of operation with the highly legible dial layout as well as the variety of contrasting colors, it just makes for a very pleasant watch design to work with, no matter what you may be using it for. The movement provides around 42 hours of power reserve, beats at 28,800bph, and has 37 jewels incorporated into the construction.
Introduced just earlier this year, the Joker was a hit at Baselworld 2017 and quickly sold out. Its creator, Russian watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin replica watches, has swiftly followed up with a second run in titanium.
The titanium Joker is almost identical to the first version in steel. The dial forms the same silly face, with the time indicated in two eyes, while the tongue forms the moon phase display inside the mouth.
Beyond the material, what makes is different is subtle: the guilloche on the “nose” is slightly more elaborate hobnail motif.
Like the original, it’s powered by an ETA 2824 topped with Chaykin’s in-house time display module. The titanium case is 42mm in diameter and 13.7mm high.
And unsurprisingly, given the success of the original, the Joker in titanium costs more.
The copy Joker in titanium is limited to 99 pieces, priced at €8880, compared to €6990 for the steel model.
“It’s the story you tell, not the product you sell”, or so the saying goes. Chopard’s new L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru replica watches CA are served with a story about fine winemaking. You see, Mr. Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, the brand’s co-president is not only passionate about making watches, but also wine. The term ‘grand cru’ (literally ‘great growth’ in French) is used to classify a wine of the most superior grade, or the vineyard which produces it. The moniker perhaps serves as a reminder that Chopard’s manufacture and L.U.C timepieces belong in an equivalent classification. The L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru even has a case that is reminiscent of the traditional oak barrels that are used at Mr. Scheufele’s vineyards. But while Chopard’s latest tonneau-shaped watch is marketed with a story (one that is personal to the co-president), with the brand, it has always been about the product first. The Heritage Grand Cru continues to show the watchmaking world what the haut de gamme L.U.C line is all about and why it is not to be discounted. Here, we bring you the details and specifications, as well as our thoughts on the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru.
The case, dial and hands
This is not the first time a tonneau-shaped case has been used by Chopard fake watches – that honour goes to the L.U.C XP Tonneau – but the brand’s second attempt has resulted in added refinement. The L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru has softer curves and a rounder body. The case measures an elegant 38.5 mm wide and 38.8 mm long but because of it’s atypical shape, the watch will wear larger than a round watch with an equivalent diameter. True to its dressy design, the case is also delightfully thin at 7.75 mm, allowing the watch to slip under a tight dress cuff with ease. Its finishing is gorgeous; the vertical satin finish on the curved case middle along with the polished bezel offer a stunning contrast. The case is matched with a brown strap, alligator leather on the top and bottom: the luxurious way to do it.
The white dial copy watches are porcelain-like and printed with inky black Roman numerals to mark the hours. Inboard of the Roman numerals is the railway-style minute track which surrounds the company marquee and the seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. There is also a railway-style track for the seconds that is accented with red Arabic numerals at the 15, 45 and 60 second mark. The brand’s own dauphine-style hands (gilded) are used to indicate the hours, minutes and seconds. An aperture for the date is present at the bottom of the sub-dial, cutting through the railway track. The date window is a touchy subject in the watch community. On one hand, its functionality (being arguably the most useful complication one can have on a timepiece) is undeniable; on the other, it is likely to disrupt the design purity of a dial. This conundrum presents itself on the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru. While the practicality of the date function is appreciated, the dial would perhaps benefit even more without it from a design perspective – at least, in our opinion. All that said, it is still by no means a deal breaker as it is discreetly – and successfully – integrated into the dial. Overall, the classic design and the luscious aesthetics of the dial is a safe, winning combination.
The Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture should be no stranger to you if you read MONOCHROME regularly. It is indeed a watch that we’ve covered several times, and on each occurrence, we loved it. It is, as you could guess by its name, a classic offering from the brand. Available in several materials (yet, mainly with steel cases recently) and with many dial variations, it always remains a strong package throughout, with great value for the money. Prior to the SIHH 2018, Ulysse Nardin presents two new versions Classico Manufacture, with “Grand Feu” White or Black Enamel Dials, combined to steel cases – and for less than EUR 9,000, that’s quite impressive.
First of all, let’s talk about the new features of these Pre-SIHH 2018 versions of the Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture. No drama, no massive changes, just new dials. But what dials we’re talking about. Manufactured in-house (something rare enough to be mentioned) by sister company Donzé Cadrans, the Classico Manufacture receives two new dials, both executed in “Grand Feu” enamel. What we have here are “real” enamel dials, crafted in the most traditional way possible, by applying several layers of enamel powder, each baked in an oven… Each step is another risk for the dial to crack.
And while white is already complex to make, black is even moreso, as the smallest imperfection is even easier to spot. After baking, the enamel dial is polished to a high sheen, and readied for the final operation: applying the Roman numerals in a contrasting colour.
Thus, as Pre-SIHH 2018 novelties, there will be two Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture with Grand Feu enamel dials:
1.One black dial with white numerals, railroad track and hands
2.One white dial with black numerals, railroad track and hands (which are blackened)
For the rest, we find once more the elegant and restrained Classico Manufacture – similar to the version we reviewed, and to the version introduced for the SIHH 2017 or finally, another version in steel with enamel dial, as a limited edition. Its case is here made of polished stainless steel and still retains its 40mm diameter and reasonable 9.60mm height. The shape of the case, at first rather classic, is given a slight twist with shaped lugs and a plate screwed on the left side of the case (at 9) with the unique number of the watch engraved.
Inside these Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture “Grand Feu” replica watches ticks the brand’s signature UN-320 calibre, an internally produced self-winding movement with several interesting features. As often with the brand, it allows for rapid date correction both forwards and backwards. It makes use of Silicium hairspring and anchor escapement (UN were the first to use this material in a serially produced watch, back in the early 2000s). Its display is traditional, with minutes and hours on the central axis, small seconds at 6 and a date integrated into this sub-dial. it boasts 48 hours of power reserve. This movement comes with a double certification, as Chronometer-rated by the COSC and the Ulysse Nardin Certificate, which means it meets stringent quality standards – for the performance of its mechanism, power reserve and other functions.
