IWC Pilot’s Mark XVIII Edition ‘Tribute To Mark XI’ Replica Watches

As one might expect from a manufacture that’s been around for more than a century and a half, IWC is known for several watch lines. One such example is a watch that recently received an update in the Arabic numerals IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Tribute to Mark XI” copy watches (Ref. IW327007), which, for the sake of readability, can be simply referred to as the “Tribute to Mark XI.” In a year underscored by brands tapping into heritage offerings, the Tribute to Mark XI isn’t entirely surprising, but has been updated thoughtfully to meet the current tastes and needs of a watch collector.

The IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII has been around for a while, but the standard production variant is quite different and shares more design similarities to the B-Uhr style of pilot watch. The Tribute to Mark XI, is a limited edition watch which as you may have guessed is inspired by the IWC Mark XI from 1948. The number 1,948 is also how many pieces IWC will produce, making this watch uncommon but not rare. The style and aesthetics of the IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII “Tribute to Mark XI” is very similar to military and field watches from the early 20th century, most notably the “Dirty Dozen” watches.




The most significant visual giveaway that this watch is inspired by the Mark XI is the handset. The unique combination of hands has rarely, if ever, been seen outside the IWC Mark XI before. Like the ancestor, the Tribute to Mark XI comes with a matte black dial, painted Arabic numerals in white to maximize legibility, and a luminescent triangle at 12 o’clock in addition to luminous markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. While the lume is modern Super-LumiNova, it’s been colored to look like aged tritium, which I have always found to be warm and pleasing to the eye.




There is a date window at 3 o’clock, and thankfully, the date wheel is black with white text which helps it blend in with the dial while maintaining legibility. The date complication is a concession to modern consumer preferences as the original Mark XI was not equipped with one. Given that this is a modern pilot’s watch, it comes equipped with a soft-iron cage to protect the movement against magnetism, but in usual IWC fashion, there are no specific numbers. The crystal is also secured such that it will not be displaced by a sudden drop in air pressure, an expected feature in pilot watches as the air pressure drops dramatically the higher one goes.




The movement, which IWC calls the Caliber 35111 is essentially a Sellita 300-1, which itself is a copy of the ETA 2892 (a movement IWC does not have access to anymore as it is a part of Richemont and not Swatch who owns ETA). Pilot’s watches are designed to be robust, reliable, and easy to maintain, and this movement checks all three boxes. Like most modern movements, the Caliber 35111 beats at 28,800bph and offers a 42 hour power reserve. The movement is hidden under a stainless-steel screw down case back which is engraved with the words “Edition Tribute to Mark XI” and “One out of 1948” in addition to the usual markings.




Another concession to modern preferences is in the size of the watch, with the stainless steel case measuring 40mm wide and 10.8mm thick. The case is a classic design with curved, tapering lugs which are brushed on the top and bottom. The bezel on the IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII “Tribute to Mark XI” is visually slimmer than the original Mark XI but suits the watch well. A simple fluted screw-down crown adds the finishing touch. With the screw-down crown and solid case back, one might expect the watch to be rated to at least 100m of water resistance, but the Tribute to Mark XI is only rated to 60m. While this does not affect the functionality of a pilot’s watch, it seems like a watch built with practicality and durability in mind should have a higher water resistance rating.




Like any other vintage-inspired piece, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII “Tribute to Mark XI” does not break new ground in terms of design or mechanical capabilities. It is simply a familiar, well-rounded offering for people who may enjoy the look of the original Mark XI but would prefer something manufactured to modern tolerances. The blue textile sraps IWC fake watches Tribute to Mark XI ships on a military green NATO strap and is available from July 2017, but with a catch. For the first three months, starting July 2017, the Tribute to Mark XI (Ref. IW327007) will only be available at Harrod’s in London for a retail price of £3,790 VAT included (~ $4,865). After that, any remaining stock of the watch will be available through all boutiques and authorized retailers for a price of $4,150. For those wondering, the price discrepancy is due to VAT that’s applicable for purchases in the UK and the exclusive retailer concept is a way for brands to support retailers who have been hit hard by the rise of e-commerce in recent years. Why not have a try with the shining replica watches?

Zenith Replica Watches Officially Customized By Bamford Watch Department

Bamford Watch Department has been providing aftermarket modification services for watches from various luxury brands since around 2003, and has often created a stir in doing so. Best-known for their customized Rolex watches that have included everything from colorful coatings to cartoon characters, these were always done as unaffiliated, third-party projects. Now, Bamford announces that they are officially sanctioned to go nuts on Zenith watches and have introduced the relationship with some examples of Bamford-customized two Arabic numerals Zenith Cronometro TIPO CP 2 copy wacthes and Zenith Heritage Pilot Ton-Up fake watches. This is the first time for Bamford to be officially authorized by a Swiss watch brand and represents a big step for the British watch customizer.






Some Bamford-customized Rolex watches.

The brand’s less-than-official relationship with Rolex in particular has been the source of some controversy. Just see our article here with hands-on pictures of various customized Rolex watches by Bamford, as well as background on the company and its founder George Bamford. Rolex themselves and many others seem to think that their watches are “perfect” as they are. While we can surely agree that people can do whatever they want to an item that they purchased and own, there is a lot of potential debate on the nature of Bamford’s business that benefits from well-known luxury names – but it is also true that they offer some high-tech proprietary options and exclusivity, for which there is clearly a market and that is not available from the brand. Of course, subjective issues such as whether the customized watches are desirable improvements on the originals or if the final products are attractive to your tastes is another matter.




Rolex is known to be ultra-conservative in terms of designs (with notable exceptions here and there) and does not even offer its own watches with black-colored cases despite a thriving aftermarket that specializes in offering this. Colorful and “experimental” design choices are, however, not unknown to Zenith. We might have further predicted polarizing releases, bold styles, and more collaborations after the unstoppable Jean-Claude Biver took a more active role in the company himself that is part of the LVMH group where he is head of watchmaking. While Biver has named Julien Tornare Zenith’s new CEO, Tornare continues to report directly to Mr. Biver in his “renewal of Zenith” mission. Whether or not this particular relationship is a direct result of Biverian forces, it does seem to indicate movement and fresh thinking at the brand.




So, while not a huge leap for Zenith, the new partnership is a big deal for Bamford as it is the first time for them to be working directly with a Swiss brand in an authorized capacity – and working with Zenith can be seen to provide greater legitimacy to their customized watches from other brands too. Practically, the relationship means that Bamford will be getting watches, parts, and other supplies directly from Zenith and working closely with the manufacture. The watches will be sold through Bamford’s retail network as well as their website where one can also customize one’s own watches online.









The online customizer follows a formula and gives you the ability to instantly see how a design change will look, offering control over a range of aesthetic details that differ according to the model. One can even separately choose the color of the Zenith star above the logo. The customizing tool is mostly about different colors, but one can, for example, choose from among ten dial colors and then further match the date wheel (or not) and choose the date text color as well. Since a lot of the dial elements are printed (rather than separate applied components) it makes sense that these would be easy to change up with different colors, but Bamford does offer more options and control than a lot of similar tools out there. As an aside – and I’ve said this before – why on earth does Casio not offer something like this for G-Shocks? I mean, you can officially do it with a pair of Converse Chuck Taylors.




While the online tool is fun, working directly with individual clients is a big part of Bamford’s business, and for the right price, they will probably do their best to accommodate further requests or creative ideas. If you want Sponge Bob on your watch dial where his hands indicate the time à la Mickey Mouse – it doesn’t hurt to ask. That said, standard versions designed by Bamford are available as well, further functioning as examples of what is possible. So let’s take a look at the Zenith watches that Bamford has customized to illustrate their new relationship – again, they are based on the Zenith Heritage Cronometro Tipo CP-2 and the Zenith Heritage Pilot Ton-Up.




The Zenith Heritage Cronometro Tipo CP-2 (that we saw hands-on here) has been customized by Bamford with a black coating for the steel case and different colored highlights on elements such as the hands and markers. The sandy black or asphalt-like texture of the dials and hands looks cool in Bamford’s pictures that mostly show models with green or “aqua blue” highlights. The base Cronometro Tipo CP-2 watch is 43mm wide (water resistant to 100 meters), runs the El Primero caliber 4069 automatic chronograph movement, and has a price of $7,700. You can see more details about the watch in the above linked-to article.




The Zenith Heritage Pilot Ton-Up (hands-on) as shown here is given a similar treatment as the Cronometro Tipo CP-2 with the blue and green highlight colors. The original black alligator straps Zenith Heritage Pilot Ton-Up fake watch has a similar interesting dial texture, but I think I actually prefer Bamford’s more modern interpretation – even though I am skeptical of how colored coatings age and show wear. The Ton-Up also uses the El Primero 4069, is 45mm wide and 100m water-resistant, and has a price of $7,100 for the version not modified by Bamford.




Bamford launched a new site in conjunction with the announcement of their official relationship with Zenith, and you can find more customized or customizable models there including El Primero and Zenith Heritage 146 Chronomaster watches – as well as other watch brands. Naturally, prices will vary depending on different models and customization options, so most will be “on request. All the shining replica watches will add your life with charming characters and great joy.

Colorful New Anonimo Nautilo NATO Replica Watches

It’s been a hot minute since we last heard from Anonimo, but the young Italian brand has been busy between the last few Baselworld cycles under new management – dramatic changes which have yielded a far more cohesive collection of watches that bode well for the brand’s future, especially given its somewhat tumultuous past. Just in time for summer, black dial Anonimo Nautilo NATO  copy watch – the cushion-cased Nautilo, gets a colorful dial remix, complete with a quartet of color-matched NATO strap options that should appeal to proclivities at poolside and seaside alike. Consider it a civilian twist on the Nautilo initially unveiled for Anonimo’s partnership with pro sailing’s Team SFS.
If you’ve been out of the Anonimo loop, we’ll catch you up real quick: the brand was co-founded by then-Panerai CEO Dino Zei and Federico Massacesi in 1997, shortly after Panerai was snapped up by Richemont and moved to Switzerland. Rather than relocate, the two remained in Florence, tapping into Zei’s past connections as a former naval officer to create aesthetically striking watches for various units in the Italian Navy. Those who remember this era of Anonimo are likely to remember the big, bronze cases and over-engineered (read: “Panerai-esque”) protective crown guards – a design language that was as polarizing as it was defining in the brand’s earliest days. See our visit to the Anonimo manufacture in Florence and more about their background here.


Now in its 20th year and under a new watchful Swiss ownership, things have settled down a bit, enabling the most current version of Anonimo to still pay homage to its earliest days in the interesting Militare collection, while retaining its maritime roots through the new small calendar Nautilo fake watches. While both collections usher in more cohesion than ever before, it’s the latter whose more classic aesthetic should appeal to both traditional dive and sport watch fans alike – especially as this particular series of Nautilo watches were designed with sailing in mind.


History aside, there’s a lot to like about the Nautilo watches – even if they’re a little safe by Anonimo’s standards, they’re still plenty distinctive, starting with the 12-4-8 applied bar indices, which are designed to yield a triangular, “A” shape inspired by the Matterhorn. Of course, this is the famous peak which straddles the border between Switzerland and Italy – the two countries who both share a vested interest in this brand’s evolution. There are other nods to this triangle – in the counterweight on the seconds hand (color-matched to the dial’s chapter ring, the first 15 minutes on the ceramic bezel, and the NATO strap on each Nautilo watch), and in the brand’s logo as well.



And while there’s nary a whiff of bronze in the latest Anonimo Nautilo NATO collection, those chasing Anonimo’s classic patina look will find reassurance that there are other options within both the Nautilo and the Militare to choose from. However, stainless steel seems to suit these four colors nicely, yielding a warmer, more cheerful, poolside demeanor rather than the somber, maritime aesthetic you ultimately get from a well-worn bronze watch.



Inside the 44mm brushed stainless steel and DLC-finished case (200m water-resistant) hums a Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement, characterized by a date aperture at 6:00, and a protected screw-down crown at 4:00. This ETA 2824 clone is widely distributed in watches at this price point and should yield reliable, albeit familiar timekeeping qualities throughout its 38-hour power reserve. The Anonimo Nautilo collection watches will each be available on either a fitted black rubber strap (the option of choice for Team SFS), shining replica watches  will light your lie.

Breitling Avenger Hurricane 45 Replica Watches Now In More Wearable Size

Breitling has elected to downsize one of their largest models, which is something we wish we could say happens more often at the brand. Originally a monstrous, doorjamb-attacking 50mm, the Arabic numerals Breitling Avenger Hurricane copy watch was made a lot more wearable by the inclusion of Breitling’s proprietary carbon case material which they call “Breitlight.” The new Breitling Avenger Hurricane 45 comes in at a far more approachable 45mm and also tackles one of the Hurricane’s other quirks by having a more standard twelve-hour dial and movement as opposed to the twenty-four-hour “military time” dial of some of the original models.




Breitling’s new Avenger Hurricane 45 is, in essence, an Avenger Hurricane for the masses or at least those who can pull off a still very macho 45mm, tactical, statement-piece of a watch. Other than the new version’s almost reasonable size, the Breitling Avenger Hurricane 45 shares many features with its larger predecessor, the Breitling Avenger Hurricane 12H including the Breitling manufacture B01 movement, an anti-reflective (on both sides) sapphire crystal, a screw-down crown, a case back affixed with screws, and a rubber-backed textile strap. The hyper-masculine military-inspired dial with stenciled numerals, available in this new version in black and yellow, remains stylistically unchanged compared to its 50mm predecessor other than having been downsized to fit the smaller case.

A mere 5mm can make a big difference. The 50mm Breitling Avenger Hurricane 12H (left) & the Breitling Avenger Hurricane 45.

Worthy of special mention wherever present is the B01 movement included in the Avenger Hurricane 45. This 47-jewel, 70-hour power reserve manufacture chronograph caliber is entirely produced at Breitling and features registers for running seconds, 30 minutes, and 12 hours. Beating at a standard 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz), the inclusion of a manufacture movement gives the Breitling Avenger Hurricane 45 some points among enthusiasts and reflects a move towards more manufacture caliber-equipped models.








This is actually an intriguing move from Breitling who often insist on making carpal tunnel-inducing wrist-clocks with nary a second thought. A 45mm black straps Breitling Avenger Hurricane fake watch with a case made of Breitling’s lightweight Breitlight material, if your wrist can pull it off, could be a pretty comfortable setup, especially given the well-executed rubber backed textile strap it comes on. Further making the new version more accessible is the decision to stick with the twelve-hour dial which is a whole lot easier for most to read at a glance. Breitling fans now have more options, and it is easy to imagine that many people who liked the 50mm Avenger Hurricane were simply unable to wear it due to its size.




If you want the “real” Avenger Hurricane experience in a 50mm case with a twenty-four-hour dial (hands-on here) to wear while pumping iron in front of your collection of vintage Arnold Schwarzenegger posters, you can still have that. But, as wrists that can accomodate that size must be far less common, the new Breitling Avenger Hurricane 45 wonderful replica watches make one of Breitling’s most tactical-looking pieces more accessible to many.

Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5320G Replcia Watches Hands-On

The history surrounding the first perpetual calendar wristwatch is a little hazy, but the Patek Philippe Ref. 97975 is widely regarded to be one of, if not the first wristwatch to feature a perpetual calendar. As a result, there’s something special when Patek Philippe releases a new perpetual calendar watch. And this was exactly what happened earlier this year at Baselworld 2017 when they announced the new brown alligator straps Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar fake watches, which is a little special because it adapts and combines traits of various vintage Patek Philippe perpetual calendar watches.

There’s something quite special about wearing a perpetual calendar watch from Patek Philippe, or any perpetual calendar watch for that matter. It relieves its owners of the arduous task of having to adjust the watch to account for the inconsistencies of the number of days in a month. Helpfully, it also displays the current day and month, and also the date and phase of the moon. It is almost as if there is a microprocessor inside the watch.






Starting with the case, it is 40mm in diameter and done in white gold. Personally, I feel that 40mm really is the sweet spot, in my opinion, and the Patek Philippe Ref. 5320G appears neither too bulky nor too dainty on the wrist. The case has many elements worth talking about and the design seems to have been influenced by the Ref. 3449 perpetual calendar from the ’60s. For example, the bezel and lugs are stepped, which adds more visual appeal to the case, and not to mention complexity in construction and finishing. The stepped lug concept, in particular, is an interesting touch that is seldom seen on new watches.











The construction of the entire case is also quite unusual in that it is stamped from a block of white gold and then machined down and finally finished with a mixture of machine and hand-finishing. Stamping in metalworking is often thought of as a low-cost process, but the final product that we see here is as well constructed and finished as any other high-end Patek Philippe watch that I have seen. In fact, if I hadn’t volunteered this piece of information to you, you probably would never have known that the case was stamped.




Unfortunately, despite being made from a single block of gold, water resistance is still rated at just 30m. Though not necessarily a deal-breaker for this kind of watch, a higher water resistance would have been welcomed, especially for folks who are less careful with their watches around water. The last thing you want is to damage your precious Patek just because you were a little careless while washing your hands.




The dial comes in a warm ivory cream color that I like very much. The color is rich and consistent throughout the dial, but it should be noted that it is lacquer and not enamel. The dial configuration is classic Patek Philippe: apertures for the day and month at 12 o’clock, a moon phase display and date sub-dial at 6 o’clock. To the right of the date sub-dial you also have the leap year indicator, and to the left you have a day/night indicator. All of the perpetual calendar indications are well-sized and easy to read at a glance.





Elsewhere on the dial, the hour markers are marked out using a combination of large Arabic numerals and round markers, which are actually black-coated 18k white gold. They look exceptionally well-made and have smoothly curved edges. They are also filled with luminous material, and they give off a bright blue glow in the dark that instantly calls to mind Rolex’s Chromalight luminescent material. The minute tracks are in black and the printing is, as you would expect from the Arabic numerals Patek Philippe copy watches, simply immaculate.



But perhaps the most attention-grabbing element of the dial are the syringe-style hour and minute hands, which are inspired by the Ref. 1591, a unique stainless steel perpetual calendar from the ’40s. It was auctioned by Christie’s in 2007 for slightly over $2.2 million and the story goes that it was once owned by a Maharajah. In any case, you don’t often see syringe hands on new Patek Philippe watches, so this makes the new ref. 5320G look and feel quite special. Like the hour markers, the hour and minute hands are made out of blackened 18k white gold.





The Caliber 324SQ movement within is new. While older perpetual calendars from Patek used the Caliber 240Q, the Ref. 5320G breaks tradition by using this new movement, which is essentially the base Caliber 324 fitted with a perpetual calendar module. The biggest difference is that the Caliber 324SQ relies on a full rotor to wind its mainspring, which should mean quicker winding when worn on the wrist. The old Caliber 240Q uses a micro-rotor.




The Caliber 324SQ has all of the niceties afforded to modern Patek movements, which includes a Gyromax balance, a Spiromax balance spring, and a large 21k gold rotor. It consists of 367 components, and despite the use of a full-size rotor, it is fairly thin at just 4.97mm. It beats at 4Hz and it is finely finished with generous applications of perlage on the main plate, as well as beveling and Côtes de Genève on the bridges. That said, it doesn’t quite have the level of detail that you would find on an A. Lange & Söhne and that’s something prospective buyers should take note. Power reserve isn’t totally impressive either, with a minimum of 35 hours and maximum of 45 hours.




The new Patek Philippe Ref. 5320G is a charming watch with many nice design touches. I especially like the stepped case and lugs, as well as the ivory dial and hour markers. The syringe-style hands are quite cool too, but, believe it or not, I’m actually indifferent towards them.




For the few and lucky folks in the market for a perpetual calendar watch from Patek Philippe, the new Ref. 5320G represents an interesting choice. Compared to the Ref. 5327 or Ref. 5140, the Ref. 5320G is definitely more refreshing and stands out. While it costs considerably less than the Ref. 5140 and about the same as the Ref. 5327, I guessed a lower price-tag would be attached to the watch. If you are lucky enough to be in such a position, all these delicate replica watches  don’t really make for a bad problem to have.

Breitling Chronoliner B04 & Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition Replica Watches

Breitling, which recently made watch industry news for their sale to CVC Capital Partners for a cool $873 million US, seems to be carrying on with business as usual, producing limited editions of core offerings for their devoted fans. The brand has also garnered attention in the last year for their collaboration with Tudor (as we discussed when looking at the Breitling Superocean Heritage II watches) in producing several new manufacture chronograph calibers such as the Breitling B01 (which Tudor calls the MT5813). Now, nodding toward their long-standing history with aviation, Breitling has released the blue dial Breitling Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition copy watches and the Chronoliner B04 Boutique Edition. These are limited-edition blue versions of popular Breitling models produced in small quantities of 100 each and available only in Breitling boutiques.





Breitling’s new Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition differs from the standard model most prominently in its blue color theme with a blue “Vietnamese mother-of-pearl” dial and an individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. For those unfamiliar with the model, the Breitling Chronomat 44 is a 44mm stainless-steel, aviation-oriented watch capable of 500m of water resistance and equipped with Breitling and Tudor’s co-designed B01 caliber, a COSC-certified 47-jewel automatic movement manufactured by Breitling with 70 hours of power reserve that oscillates at 28,800bph (4Hz).










Second in their limited series of boutique-only offerings is the blue leather straps Breitling Chronoliner B04 fake watches, a special version of their Chronoliner which differs from the off-the-shelf version in its inclusion of the Breitling-manufactured B04 movement, blue color scheme, and similarly individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. The 47 jewel, self-winding, 70-hour-power-reserve, in-house-manufactured B04 movement is worthy of special mention for its capability of tracking both a second and third timezone by way of an additional red-tipped hand and a blue ceramic 24-hour bezel which has also been given the blue treatment.









These limited-edition watches represent Breitling’s dedication to adding more variety to its core offerings with manufacture movements and are consistent with their established aviation connection. With these limited-edition versions, Breitling’s faithful fans are reminded that, despite having recently changed hands, the Breitling we’ve come to know is still going strong and continuing to move forward. The relatively high price of the two limited pieces, $9,090 for the Breitling Chronomat 44 and $9,150 for the Breitling Chronoliner B04 as shown, may also speak to the future direction of the brand as they include more manufacture movements in their releases. The Breitling Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition and the Chronoliner B04 Boutique Edition will both be available only at Breitling boutiques. The best copy watches will delight your life.

The Caliper View Replica Watches

The Caliper View watch was born out of an appreciation and fascination with machines. The design was largely influenced by mid-twentieth century technical instruments; the precision tools that scientists, engineers, and technicians relied on to get their work done before electronics became ubiquitous. We have a collection of these mid-century technical devices. We have precision laboratory scales, slide rules, steel drafting tools, and survey equipment, in addition to beautiful old cameras. These tools are heavily built and beautifully crafted. They have clear and simple numeric scales, and are fitted with indicators and markers designed to maximize legibility. These tools reflect a clean modernist aesthetic with no fuss or ornamentation. The geometry is comprised of circles and straight lines with few complex curves.









In the mid-seventies, the first miniature calculators were developed, rendering slide-rules and mechanical calculators redundant. Around the same time, the development of quartz watch movements brought the mechanical watch industry to its knees. Plastic rapidly replaced steel as a more cost-effective material, and soon, quality and durability were forgotten in favor of the cheap and semi-disposable.

Although the stainless steel case Caliper View fake watch  is inspired by technology from the ’50s and ’60s, it does not look like a watch from that time. It’s a design that could only exist now. Our design reaches back for inspiration to create something new.


The design we developed is based on the visual and geometric language of technical tools. The watch is 38mm in diameter and 13mm thick, making it rather taller than the average watch. One reviewer likened the form to a vintage camera lens.

Caliper Timepieces takes its name from a particular tool: the Vernier Caliper. This deceptively simple tool embodies the ingenuity of mechanical design. The Vernier scale is an elegant solution to a mechanical problem, and allows for far more precise measurement than what is possible with a simple uniform scale. We also like the fact that caliper is a play on words of the horological use of the work caliber.




We’ve called this model the Caliper ‘View’ due to the transparent elements of the watch. In addition to sapphire glass on the front and back, the View has a glass watch face behind the hands. By adding printed elements to this surface, we’ve been able to float graphics over the movement. There are three face design versions. The first version incorporates callouts like a technical diagram that illustrates key elements of the movement. It’s subtle – something you discover as you look closely. The second face version is a screen of grey dots that partially conceals the movement. A third face option is clear glass that fully reveals the movement.




The design is intended to appear simple and minimalist at first but to reveal more complexity on closer inspection.To develop the specs for this timepiece, we focused on building the best watch possible that could be sold for under $400 US Dollars. The movement we settled on is the Japanese Miyota 82S0, an automatic movement with 21 jewels and 21,600 vibrations per hour. It has an ‘open heart’ in that the balance wheel is visible from the front. The metal has a nice patterned finish on the back and we were able to engrave the company name on the rotor. The movement has a clean and purposeful finish without decoration, which is in line with our aesthetic for this design. The transparent case back Caliper copy watches are the fine works as well.




The case and glass are robust. We’ve used 316L stainless steel and sapphire glass. The watch is built to be water resistant to 10 ATM. It’s not a dive watch but much tougher than the average. The Caliper View watch is a solid and well-made timepiece that offers very good value at our target price. these wonderful replica watches will bring your life with more happiness and dignity.

We are very happy with the result. The quality and finish is everything we had hoped for. We originally launched on Kickstarter and the comments and feedback we’ve received have been very positive.

IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition ’50th Anniversary Of Mercedes-AMG’ Replica Watches

WC has launched the limited-edition IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition “50th Anniversary Of Mercedes-AMG” watch to commemorate, as the name suggests, the golden anniversary of AMG, the performance motoring arm of Mercedes-Benz. The watch will be available in a limited run of 250 pieces and is available at only a small premium over the standard Ingenieur Chronograph Sport.




Under the dial, this watch shares the same movement as the regular production stainless steel case IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport copy watches or the Portugieser Chronograph, which is the in-house Caliber 89361. An automatic chronograph equipped with 68 hours of power reserve, this movement offers flyback functionality, a feature that fits right in with the motorsport racing theme as it is used to time successive intervals of time like race laps. It also has the unique hour and minute totalizer (which we discussed in the above linked-to article) at 12 o’clock which is intended to make the chronograph reading more intuitive.




The one difference between this small calendar IWC fake watches “50th Anniversary Of Mercedes-AMG” and the other watches equipped with the calibre 89361 is apparent when you look at the case back. Like the original Ingenieur from 1955, the IWC Mercedes-AMG Ingenieur Chronograph Sport is equipped with a soft iron cage that helps make the watch anti-magnetic, though IWC does not provide concrete figures on how anti-magnetic it actually is. In keeping with the motorsport and specifically AMG theme, the back of the soft iron cage has holes drilled into it in a radial formation to make it look like a brake disc. In addition, the back of the cage is engraved with the words, “Tribute to One Man One Engine.” This is in reference to the fact that each engine that is produced by AMG is assembled from scratch by a single AMG mechanic. Personally, I struggle to see the benefit of engraving and drilling into the soft iron cage, and think a solid case back with similar engravings would’ve been sufficient. The AMG theme, however, is loud and clear.




The dial is silver plated with a zero-to-sixty-styled index, another of the many motorsport-inspired design changes. On that note, IWC has said that the color scheme of red, white, and anthracite was meant to reflect the color scheme found on race tracks around the world, i.e., red and white for the curbs and anthracite for the asphalt. All the hands related to the chronograph function are in red, while the ones dedicated to telling time are in black. The dial is completed by a date window at 3 o’clock and in a final touch to the motorsport theme, a tachymeter scale around the edge – a feature that, while not particularly useful in this day and age, was definitely expected on such a watch.




All of this is housed in a 44mm titanium case rated for 120m of water-resistance, with a screw down crown and rectangular pushers. At 15.9mm thick and with Grade 5 titanium which has the appearance of stainless steel, you’d be forgiven for expecting this to be a heavy watch. However, one of the primary benefits of titanium is that it is a very light yet strong metal. While the use of titanium is not unique to this limited edition, it definitely fits right in with the idea of performance motorsports where lightweight, strong materials are highly prized. The case has brushed sides, polished front and back bezels and polished crown guards and pushers. The bezel for the case back is engraved with “Edition 50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG” and “One out of 250.”




IWC’s relationship with Mercedes-AMG goes back to 2004, and has resulted in multiple limited editions, several with unique case materials like boron carbide. This watch represents another milestone in that continuing relationship. With this collaborative relationship in mind, owners of each of the five special-edition Mercedes-AMG GT3 “Edition 50” cars will also receive a limited edition IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport. Like the watch, this car was specially designed and launched to celebrate the 50-year anniversary.




I mentioned that this edition had a surprisingly light premium over the non-limited model. Special edition watches often cost significantly more than their standard siblings, many times with no other reason than that it is labeled a special edition and maybe has a different dial color – and for some supposed “exclusivity.” This can be quite frustrating for watch collectors. The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition “50th Anniversary Of Mercedes-AMG” costs only $800 more than the standard Ingenieur Chronograph Sport. This makes it more attractive for the collector who appreciates the Ingenieur line but wants something different and less common than the regular offerings – and in a year where we’ve seen “limited edition” runs of 2,012 or 6,000 pieces, 250 pieces makes it feel more “rare” indeed. The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition “50th Anniversary Of Mercedes-AMG” is available on a black calfskin strap, which only devoted to complete the gorgeous replica watches.

Tissot Heritage 1948 Chronograph Replica Watches

Tissot has been keeping busy so far in 2017, with a plethora of new models released including the T-Touch Expert Solar II and the crowd favorite Tissot Ballade featuring a silicone hairspring at an entry-level price. Add to these the steel case Tissot Heritage 1948 chronograph copy watch, based on the brand’s chronograph models in their museum collection from (you guessed it) 1948.




Between the Clous de Paris bezel of the Ballade and the recognizably vintage-inspired Heritage, Tissot has continued releasing older generation models with a bit more contemporary flare. This is something we’ve always seen in the industry that has been noticeably more aggressive in the last couple of years in luxury brands as well as the “affordable” market. The Omega 1957 Trilogy comes to mind, as does the Breitling Super Ocean Heritage II. In the affordable realm, Undone has created an entire business model around their most popular vintage designs. Those are just a few examples among many, many others. While some complain that there aren’t enough totally new and contemporary watches coming out these days, it’s hard to deny the charm of the Tissot Heritage 1948.




The white dial Tissot Heritage 1948 fake watches‘ 39.6mm wide stainless steel case is water resistant to 30m and fitted with a Hesalite crystal. This is an eyebrow-raising move for Tissot. Hesalite is perhaps most widely known for its use on the Omega Speedmaster after NASA requested a material that doesn’t shatter on impact. Being in a zero-gravity environment would cause significant problems if little glass shards were floating around. Using a plastic-ish base, Hesalite is almost impossible to break.

The downside is that it scratches more easily than sapphire, the crystal material of choice for the vast majority of luxury watches today. Essentially scratch-proof, yes, but it can shatter with a very hard impact. Tissot’s original mission back in the day was to create an industrial watch “destined for engineers, technicians, doctors, and sportsmen,” and having a shatterproof crystal was an important place to start. The Tissot Heritage 1948 gives a fair nod to that era of Tissot’s history.









Inside the watch is the ETA 2894-2 workhorse chronograph movement. This is less common than the Valjoux 7750 integrated chronograph movement and uses a chronograph module built on top of an ETA 2892-2. The automatic movement features a date window at the controversial 4:30 location – a rather contemporary move for a “heritage” watch in addition to the chronograph registers at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. One of my favorite aspects of the watch is the harmony I perceive between the different design elements.

Looking at the dial straight on, the black seconds hand and black chronograph hands seem to flow with the black logo. The steel leaf-shaped hour and minute hands are silver in color, matching the Roman numeral 12 o’clock index and steel case against a barely off-white dial bringing a culmination of an almost minimalist, but equally uniform design. That is helped by the lack of a tachymeter, telemeter, pulsometer, or any other kind scale that can add a technical or sporty look but undeniable clutter to a watch design. Either way, that kind of addition would probably go mostly unused by owners. With the exception of the rather busy exhibition case back, the watch has a very elegant look, and that is something I find appealing for an arguably dressy chronograph.




The Tissot Heritage 1948 watch will come with three different strap and bracelet options. Alligator leather straps are available in black or brown, and there is a Milanese steel bracelet. For fans who want to take the retro look even further, I feel the bracelet provides a great option. Personally, though I would almost always opt for a bracelet, I find the black leather far more fitting in this particular case.




Overall, Tissot is definitely dipping its cup in the sea of the retro market that is so popular right now, and they are doing a good job at it. As the owner of a number of Tissot delicate replica watches myself, both sporty and dressy, I find myself continuously drawn to these latest vintage-inspired releases. This includes the Ballade with technical upgrades well within the reach of affordability, and the Heritage 1948 with a significant retro swag that still manages to remain contemporary enough to wear with jeans.

Zenith Chronomaster Heritage Limited Edition By Timeless Luxury Replica Watches

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, Zenith is known for its chronographs, so deciding to make the alligator straps Zenith Chronomaster Heritage Limited Edition fake watches, 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 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 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 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 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.

The silver dial Zenith Chronomaster Heritage Limited Edition copy watches will be our smallest run of a limited edition yet, with only 25 pieces being made.
