Portugieser has been regarded as the symbolic collection of IWC Schaffhausen and it is popular in many watch lovers with its distinctive design which is simple, bright and graceful. Today I will introduce a blue model of Portugieser. it is the first time that IWC set the blue dials on Portugieser collection. The idea is inspired from the sailing, the blue elements that symbolized the inspiration of exploring the ocean. The copy IWC Portugieser IW371491 with blue dial shows the elegance and classic ultimately.
The case of 40.9 mm IWC Portugieser IW371491imitation watch is made of steel. The bezel and lug with polished finish demonstrate the smooth and perfect curve very well. The crown is polished and engraved with IWC logo. Designed with texture, it is more comfortable and convenient to wear. The 30 minutes chronograph sub-dial is set at 12 o’clock. Silvered hands set on the blue dial make the watch readability.
The Swiss IWC fake watches are equipped with the self-winding mechanical movement Calibre 79350 which is of high performance and excellent accuracy. It has a power reserve of approximately 44 hours when fully wound and water resistance is to 30 meters. Developed with a solid caseback, the watch becomes more secure.
It is the seventh time that IWC has launched the especial model to commemorate the novel “Le Petit Prince” .The IWC Big Pilots Annual Calender fake watches with brown leather strap are launched only 250 pieces. IWC timepieces are considered as firm and gentle,but the limited edition Big Pilots would remind you of the happy time of childhood. You will not see any element of the little prince on the dial and it is as same as the ordinary IWC Pilots watches.However,on the back of the case, the figure of the little prince,worn an overcoat will catch your eyes.The little prince stand on his own star which is actually the engraved rotor,staring the sky curiously with his eyes wide open.
The particular 46mm replica watches are equipped with automatic self-winding movement.The Calibre 52850 is manufactured by IWC and provide a power reserve of 7 days when fully wound. The exquisite craftsmanship of the mechanical can be enjoyed through the transparent case back. Water resistance is 6 bar.
The IWC Pilots imitation watches with midnight blue dial not only display the month and date, but also display the week at the aperture of 12 O’clock on the dial.It is easy to adjust the calender of IWC through the crown.Three separated half round windows display the month,date and the week.
The Longines Avigation BigEye replica watches are inspired by vintage aviation type chronograph. Congruous with the design aesthetics of pilots’ watches, the dial is highly readable, with large font hour markers, and the pushers are sized larger than on classic timepieces. This is to enable the wearer to handle them while wearing gloves.
The stainless steel case measures 41 mm in diameter and is water resistant to 30 meters. It is fit with a domed sapphire crystal glass with several layers of anti-reflective coating. To complete the look, a nubuck texture leather strap is used. The case finish is military inspired, with a brushed finish along the center case and a polished thin step bezel. The lugs look raw and straightforward, which is in line with the overall design aesthetic.
Longines has a long history in watchmaking innovation. They hold the patent of the flyback chronograph movemnt Longines fake watches and have produced several notable mechanical chronographs. But of concern of us today, is the column wheel chronograph which they produced the world’s first in 1878.
In 2011, Longines added the L688 column wheel chronograph to the Heritage collection. The movement is still used in the collection today, as with this Avigation Bigeye. The movement is roughly based off the Valjoux 7750 and bears its thickness, made distinct by watch case profiles which house the movements. That said, the column wheel chronograph is a bargain by today’s market standards, price-wise it’s packed between notable movements like the Japanese-made Seiko chronograph movement (used in TagHeuer) and the Swiss-made Zenith El Primero. Performance wise, the movement is robust and time tested, a practical automatic caliber with 54 hours of power reserve.
Overall, the Longines copy leather strap watches arewell-designed and a welcome addition to the Heritage line. The case, dial and movement are ideal and in an almost formulaic fashion, the watch ticks all major requirements. At S$3980, the watch is priced competitively and goes head to head with its competitor Tudor; which employs similar product type offerings. As for us, we like the watch. It looks good and is a good addition to any collection. Then again, whether the market is starting to get ‘retro’ fatigue is another story altogether.
‘Novelty’ is one of the most abused words in the watch industry. Practically, it’s used to describe the steady stream of new models and designs being produced by watchmaking brands. But on top of that, it conveys a sense of newness and — marketing departments fervently hope — excitement. For example, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 2017 novelties were their Master Control trilogy — they excited people, and rightfully so. And while this grey-dialled Master Ultra Thin Moon is a new release, it’s not really a novelty — it didn’t make headlines at SIHH, and doesn’t showcase any innovations in mechanics or material. But despite this (or perhaps because of it), this serious, Jaeger-LeCoultre replica ghostly grey Master Ultra Thin Moon is an exceptionally beautiful piece of watchmaking, the sort that JLC excels at.
If you’re not familiar with the MUT Moon (as it’s sometimes known), here’ s the two-minute rundown. First introduced in 2012, this perfectly sized 39mm white gold dress watch is a case study on just how well Jaeger-LeCoultre does thin watchmaking. At 9.9mm tall it’s slender, but not exceptionally so, partially due to the complicated nature of the movement. On the other hand, it does feel pleasingly solid on the wrist, avoiding that anxiety-inducing delicate wafer vibe that is so often part and parcel of the ultra slim experience. And, as you’d expect from JLC, the movement is lovely. The Calibre automatic movement Jaeger-LeCoultre fake watches, well finished with a pink gold rotor. The time/date/moon set up necessitates 246 parts and is good for 43 hours of power reserve. Finishing is superior and the whole kit and caboodle has been tested for 1000 hours (nigh on six weeks) to ensure it will stand up to the rigours of the real world.
While the insides of this watch are important — and a big part of the story — for me it’s all about that dial. A subtle, sliver grey starburst that is refinement incarnate. The design of this watch is an exercise in textural contrast. Everything except the night sky of the moon phase is grey, silver or white, which you would think would cause a washed-out look. Nothing could be further from the truth. The satin-y dial provides a soft backdrop to the hard polished facets of the hour markers and dauphine hands, while the minimal white text is present, legible but in no way obtrusive. The domed sapphire crystal and narrow bezel ensure that this harmonious, balanced design is always shown in the best possible light. Beauty, thy name is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon limited edition copy watches.
Tudor’s latest new belt notch is a partnership forged with World Rugby. After announcing some of the biggest headliners in pop-culture as brand ambassadors earlier in the year — namely, David Beckham and Lady Gaga — and some major partnerships in the world of rugby already in place — such as becoming the official timing partner of the New Zealand All Blacks and the DHL New Zealand Lions Series 2017 with star player Beauden Barrett firmly in place as yet another ambassador — Tudor’s now set itself on a trajectory to dominate the rugby sport on a global scale.
Particularly speaking, the new deal will, “see Tudor support the sport’s leading events for the men, women and U20s in both the XV and 7’S formats, as well as the World Rugby Hall of Fame and World Rugby Awards,” as stated within the latest press release.
Some landmark events for the sport where we can, therefore, expect to see Tudor relica watches running hand-in-hand, beings as early as tomorrow at the World Rugby Awards (26th of November 2017 in Monaco) with Tudor as direct sponsors of the World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year award.
Next, in 2018, Tudor will be present with its support as the official timekeeper at the Rugby World Cup Sevens in July, in San Francisco. In 2019, we can expect to see them, again as the official timekeeper, at the first World Cup Rugby to be held in Asia, specifically in Japan.
Tudor green dial fake watches are now, also, the official partner of the World Rugby Hall of Fame, to continue its efforts to honor and remember players, coaches and match officials who have had great positive impact on the sport and subject matters relating to the sport.
From pop-culture to, now, a deeper integration into rugby, is a showcase of Tudor’s determination become a watchmaker that is known beyond simply the realms of watchmaking. But, of course, this would be a pointless endeavor, if it was the partnerships that became Tudor’s prime focus rather than the watchmaking. In this regard, let us remind ourselves that at the same time Tudor’s watchmaking efforts have remained unquestionable, with the 2017 Tudor Black Bay Chronograph copy winning the “Petite Aiguille” Prize at the recently concluded GPHG and, also, the Black Bay Bronze One securing a phenomenal bid of CHF 350,000, well above the lower estimate of CHF 4,500.
Nothing gets a watch fan’s blood pumping quite like new dive Seiko watches release from Seiko. And this year, our collective hearts were racing. With Seiko dropping not just a re-creation of the iconic 62MAS – the SLA017 – but also two modern reinterpretations, the black SPB051 and the blue SPB053. And that’s the key phrase here – modern reinterpretation. You see, unlike the SLA017, which was an almost exact duplicate of the 62MAS, these modern reimaginations are larger, sportier, and exactly that, reimagined for the wrist of today.
I had the chance to get my hands on the SPB051, and I can say that it’s everything a Seiko dive watch should be. From above, the stainless-steel case looks the spitting image of the 62MAS, straight cut integrated lugs with a circular brushed finish and no crown guards. Only now it’s bigger, measuring 42.6mm across and 13.8mm thick. It’s less square too, with its utilitarian silhouette given some curves by sides that are sleek and rounded to smoothly flow and curve with your wrist. For the eyes, the brushed finish shifts to a solid line of Zaratsu polishing, which captivates and catches any and all reflections. Water resistance is a more contemporary 200m, and for added scratch-resistance Seiko copy watches for men have coated the case (and the bracelet) in a super-hard coating.
Look a little further and you’ll see even more of these modern touches. A sapphire crystal, which has been given the anti-reflective treatment, domes over the dial. And inside beats Seiko’s modern and reliable Caliber 6R15, with a hefty power reserve of 50 hours. Also worth mentioning is the bracelet of the SPB051. With an exceptionally solid feel, its slightly raised centre links and milled three-fold clasp put it a step above the more entry-level offerings from Seiko. If you’re not a fan of bracelets, the blue SPB053 is available on an accordion-style rubber strap, and drilled lugs on both models make changing straps a cinch. All noticeable improvements that no doubt will be praised by dive watch and Seiko devotees alike.
On top sits a moody black steel bezel Seiko replica watches. Its lacquered glossy finish absorbing or reflecting light depending on the angle. It shares the same 60-minute markings as its inspiration, and has an action that is noticeably smoother than many of Seiko’s other divers. Broad arrow hands and applied hour markers are generously filled with Seiko’s own blazing Lumibrite lume and with a date at 3 o’clock the matte black dial is clean and clear.
There’s something about the colour red. In nature it symbolises danger, in human culture it’s got a more complex set of meanings: typically passion, strength, desire – emotion writ large.
Which is why this glistening red sapphire confection replica Hublot watches are the logical extension of Hublot’s journey into sapphire. Not only does the vivid case amplify all the natural attributes of the Big Bang case – especially given the contrasting black detailing, but it exaggerates everything that Hublot stands for, not just in terms of design, but also in brand ethos. It’s an audaciously out-there watch, not to many people’s tastes, but it is an undeniably, infectiously fun watch. And, really, isn’t that what matters?

Having forged a partnership with tyre-maker Pirelli, which was announced at SIHH 2017, and a subsequent tie-up with Italdesign Giugiaro, Roger Dubuis replica watches continue to deepen its association with motorsport by partnering with one of its most legendary marques, Lamborghini. This union is being inaugurated with a pair of Excalibur Aventador S watches.
“The collaboration came by chance, and it became kind of a love story quite quickly,” explains Edouard Cottin, the watchmaker’s International Sales Director. “We were thinking about associating our brand with other universes, and we wanted to find an interesting angle in terms of product innovation, with regards to mechanics, materials as well as design.”
“We’re not in a fun industry,” says Cottin, “but we have more and more millennials who are out looking for fun. If you can add different dimensions to a one-dimensional product; a disruptive approach to a classical product, they are very receptive.” For its Pirelli collaboration, Roger Dubuis introduced a series of colour coded watches with straps featuring rubber inlays made from tyres used on race-winning Formula 1 cars.
Offering the perfect parallel, Lamborghini’s purposeful positioning as a brand that transcends automobiles is winning over a new generation of consumers, becoming deeply embedded in pop culture – with celebrities from Drake to Kanye West to Justin Bieber owning its aggressively styled cars. In contrast to its more refined and docile rival in Maranello, Lamborghini is the unrelenting wild child of Italian supercars.
But this partnership isn’t just a mere exercise in marketing pageantry; the watches ultimately speak for themselves. Accompanying the announcement are the Excalibur Aventador S limited editions.
Both are powered by the Duotor, a skeletonised calibre inspired by the naturally aspirated V12 that’s been the power plant in every flagship Roger Dubuis Lamborghini replica watches since its first production sports car, the 350 GT of 1964.
After years of looking at and reviewing watches on a daily/weekly basis, I’m sometimes surprised by what I end up liking. Sometimes it’s a watch that I expected to be garish or too large, but is tame and fits well. Or a watch that is so simple that I expect it to be dull, but it ends up having a sophistication beyond the sum of its parts. Regardless, I enjoy these surprises as they keep me looking forward to new releases and trying out new watches.
First look of the watch
When I first saw the Mido Ocean Star replica watches, my reaction was, “Well, okay. Nothing new here, but nothing offensive either, and certainly worth a closer look.” At a glance, the overall layout seemed well considered. There was nothing that gave me an immediate, “Oh, no” reaction for sure, and the aesthetic felt pleasantly modern in a day when everything is trying to be vintage. 42mm is perhaps a touch large, but not over the top. Furthermore, 200 meters of water resistance, a sapphire crystal and one of Swatch Group’s handy 80-hour power reserve movements make it a nice package for around $1,000.
Looking closer at the line, I was also intrigued by the different styles available in the Ocean Star series. There are a couple of standards—steel case with either a blue or black dial—but there are also some more unique options, too. There is an all-titanium option, which is more toolish than the others, and then two that flirt with gold. One is all around rose gold accompanied by a black strap—which I get, but it’s not for me. The last, however, intrigued me the most—a two-tone version with a steel mid-case and rose gold PVD bezel and crown Mido fake watches.
Why this model? First, it’s a change of pace. We rarely review gold watches or watches with gold elements, and variety is the spice of life, so they say. Second, it simply looks nice, with the gold accents adding some additional detail to the design. Third, two-tone watches are maybe starting to come back in trend. I mean, there was even a NY Times article on the topic that I had the honor of being quoted in (humble brag). That said, the article focused on watches at a higher price point, and that brings me to my final point—with the recent release by Tudor of the Heritage Black Bay Two-Tone, an immediately very popular new model, it’s nice to have an affordable option in a watch that bears some similarity without feeling derivative.
And, as the opening paragraph set up and the following will expand on, I was pleasantly surprised by the Mido Ocean Star. It’s a cut and dry dive watch that leans more towards desk diving than ocean diving, and it has a well-considered and very clean layout. It’s modern and not trendy—in a good way—but it also has some vintage elements to the bezel which adds some style. The case and bracelet have some finishing that surprised me, and those hints of gold elevate the aesthetic. At $1,000, it’s not the cheapest on the block, but it’s a nice alternative to watches that cost a few times more.
Watch collectors are naturally familiar with SIHH and Baselworld, but the Asian equivalent is less well known. Taking place annually in the Shenzhen, the metropolis that borders Hong Kong, the China Watch & Clock Fair (CWCF) happened in late June inside the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Centre. A vast event with over 60,000 visitors annually in recent years, the CWCF is the largest watch and jewellery exhibition in Mainland China, and the third largest worldwide. Only Baselworld and the Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair count more visitors.
Now in its 28th year, the CWCF has a thoroughly international exhibitor list. Swiss movement makers ETA and Ronda both had booths inside, as did Citizen-owned Miyota; this year’s CWCF was also the first with independent watchmakers of the AHCI. (The main hall of the CWCF 2017 is pictured above.)
The CWCF began in 1988, mainly for component suppliers and OEM watch manufacturers to showcase their wares to the trade. However, in recent years, the focus of the fair has shifted towards timepieces catered to the consumer, making it more like Baselworld.
This shift in focus tracks the evolution of the exhibiting brands themselves, most of which are Chinese watch manufacturers that are developing their own consumer brands. One example is Peacock Watch, an OEM maker founded exactly 60 years ago, which is venturing into the consumer market for the first time with the T.S Series, a line tourbillon wristwatches starting at US$2470 for a single tourbillon, rising somewhat drastically to U$29,119 for the double tourbillon.
The flagship T.S. double tourbillon has a large, sporty look with 45mm carbon composite case that’s a fairly slim 11.5mm. It will be available in four colors and is fitting to a fabric strap featuring a pin buckle also in the carbon composite.
The movement is based on the P531-4 movement that Peacock has supplied to other makers, but here it has been given a more decorative finish. It’s partially skeletonized and finished with Geneva stripes and bevelled edges on the bridges, along with stamped guilloche on the base plate. However, all the finishing is obviously mechanically executed, which is understandable given its comparatively low price; similar watches from Swiss watchmakers typically cost twice as much.
Another notable watch spotted in the halls was the new tourbillon by Beijing Watch Factory, best known for the diversity of tourbillon wristwatches it offers. A radical departure from its earlier, fanciful designs, the Bladelegant tourbillon has sleek lines and a clean dial available in grey or silver. Most notably, the hour indices are set on a convex sapphire chapter ring, with a domed sapphire crystal over it for greater visual depth. It is still equipped with the TB01-2 movement found in most of the brand’s tourbillons, featuring the characteristic tourbillon cage shaped like a swallow.
