Now Rolex Datejust and Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra watches are chosen by numerous watch lovers for formal occasions. In my mind, they are also suitable for casual occasions too.
Datejust is one of the most symbolic collections of Rolex which was launched in 1945 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the watch brand. It is also the world’s first automatic watch with instant jump calendar. With the development, the iconic cyclops lens over the date window has been added to the automatic movement copy Rolex Datejust in 1950s.
In 1970s, Datejust has updated a lot, including the new case, dial and sapphire crystal.
While in the later decades, Datejust has changed too with the development of more advanced technology and material. However, it maintains the most classic design in appearance.
Omega Aqua Terra
Comparing with Datejust, Aqua Terra is young. It was launched in 2002. The first Seamaster Aqua Terra adopted the Cal.2500, featuring the simple and fashionable appearance.
In 2008, the new Aqua Terra copy watches were inspired by the teak deck on the luxury yachts and the movement inside are upgraded to Cal.8500. Although these Swiss Omega imitation watches only have a few decades history, they have achieved great success.
For decades the Rolex Air-King cheap fake watches were the most affordable Rolex Oyster, until it was discontinued two years ago. But now the Air-King is back with a distinctly unorthodox dial featuring oversized hour and minute indices as the ref. 116900.
Originating in the early 1950s as a watch evolved from the watches Rolex made for aviators in the 1930s, the Air-King was the the most affordably priced, self-winding Rolex Oyster wristwatch. Smaller than the Datejust and lacking a date function, the Air-King nonetheless carried the familiar Rolex look.
The new Air-King (ref. 116900), on the other hand, bears a strikingly novel look.The black dial features applied white gold hour numerals at the quarters with printed white five-minute markings – a look that is a blend of the Explorer and vintage “Compteur” stopwatches.
And to make it even more unusual, both “Rolex” and the seconds hand are in green, the company’s corporate colour, while the coronet logo is in yellow.
The stainless steel case Rolex replica watches are 40 mm in diameter, slightly larger than the Explorer. And the movement inside is the calibre 3131, self-winding with a 48 hour power reserve.
The Air-King is priced at SFr5900, only marginally more than the SFr5400 of the Oyster Perpetual 39, the identically sized and most affordable men’s Rolex Oyster.
