Superstar quarterback Tom Brady may be loyal to only one NFL team in the replica watches world, the six-time super bowl champion just switched sides. IWC Schaffhausen lately announced that Tom Brady has become their official brand ambassador.
That surprised some, since Tom Brady has been a brand ambassador for TAG Heuer since 2015. Tag heuer’s special edition ‘Tom Brady’ Carrera chronograph is in New England Patriot colors and comes with his signature. We can only assume that his contract with TAG is over and the IWC has signed him up on its growing list of sponsors.
Tom Brady has been seen wearing many different IWC replica watches this year. At the Met Gala in May, he was photographed wearing the “longest flight” version of the latest timepiece, Spitfire, as well as the limited edition version of the Portuguese calendar 150 years. In addition, Brady’s personal collection includes a pilot watch called TOP GUN Miramar, according to IWC.
In terms of the new partnership, Tom Brady said: “I am honored to be working with IWC Schaffhausen, a brand I have long desired, not only for their timeless design, but also for their precise engineering and attention to detail.””I am delighted to be part of the IWC family and look forward to working with their talented team to share the brand’s unique legacy around the world.”
Tom Brady joins a growing list of IWC brand ambassadors, including Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper and five-time formula one world champion Lewis Hamilton. While we can’t imagine the Schaffhausen watchmaker launching a replica watch in memory of Tom Brady, the brand is “looking forward to revitalizing their partnership with many exciting new products”.
It’s no secret that top Swiss watch brands are vying to dominate the U.S. market, and despite the sport’s turmoil, soccer is king in those areas. Maybe in the near future, we’ll see more NFL players become brand ambassadors.
There is a distinct engraving known as the Omega Seahorse on the caseback of certain Omega watches. Have you ever wondered where this unique emblem came from? Today we will help unveil the fact. The hippocampi were sea monsters with the heads of horses and the lower bodies of fish in Greek mythology. They bear some resemblance to the seahorse creatures we know today – actually, the genus of the seahorse is Hippocampus.
It is said that Poseidon, the god of the sea drove a chariot drawn by hippocampi. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to ride a gondola through the canals of Venice in Italy, you may have noticed a pair of metal ornamental hippocampi on each side of the boat. These are meant to be a symbol of protection for the gondolas, drivers, and passengers.
In the 1950s, an engraver by the name of Jean-Pierre Borle was working at Omega. He was the craftsman behind the famed “Observatory” emblem found on the caseback of the Omega Constellation, which depicts an observatory and eight stars. The illustration stands for the location of chronometer trials and the eight stars denote the number of chronometric records that fake Omega broke in 1931.
Jean-Pierre Borle took a trip to Venice and noticed the hippocampi on the gondolas. These seahorse-like statues served as inspiration for his next engraving. In 1958, the hippocampus became the symbol of the replica Omega Seamaster as a means to signify the watch’s water resistant capabilities.
It’s interesting to note that Omega replica watches refers to this logo as a “seahorse” when it is clearly a hippocampus, complete with bridles. Early versions of the Omega Seahorse logo were etched into casebacks, which eventually evolved into a more intricate embossing of the emblem, similar to what is found on the contemporary watches that Omega sells today.
While it first made an appearance on the Seamaster, the hippocampus symbol did not remain exclusive to the Seamaster collection. Omega began using their seahorse insignia on some of their other tool watch models, such as the Railmaster and Speedmaster – also as a manes to denote their impressive water resistance. Today, you can find the Omega seahorse logo on select models, which remains an important and historic symbol of the brand.
Franck Muller’s watch is rarely unknown. No matter how you feel about the brand, the striking, curvy shape of the tonneau case needs attention. I’ve always thought of Franck Muller as a brand that fills a specific niche. It is, at least in my view, a more lustrous, classically influenced precious metal that corresponds to Richard Mille’s high-tech futurism. These watches are for people who want to talk about their cheap replica watches. If you want to make sure your conversation starts, what is the better way to paint your watch bright green or bright yellow? This is exactly the strategy explored by frank muller’s pioneering racing v45 SC DT watch, which we will examine for ourselves in this article.
What defines the Racing Collection as outstanding from previous Vanguard iterations may not be clear enough, given that the eye is unavoidably drawn to the dial before the case. It is, however, in the latter’s silhouette that the difference can be found. The colored and flared flanks not only give this case a far more aggressive edge than the normal Vanguard, but they also tie the whole color design together. In addition, these colored flashes continue the vibrant sportiness of the interior on the outside of the case.
As far as I am concerned, the addition of a brightly colored crown guard is an excellent step. I have always found the standard Franck Muller silhouette to be bit too feminine for my tastes, even given the rather enormous sizes stretched to by some of the more recent models. The new, updated jaggedness of the Vanguard Racing Collection’s exterior is a huge improvement, in my book.
The case is available in two materials: the stainless steel cases pictured in this article or an 18k rose gold housing, which also comes with two dial variations. The dimensions of both are the same. The bold, form-fitting Arabic numerals are applied to the dial to add depth. Beautifully machined, with sharp, clean edges to die for, these numerals are a big part of this design
The Franck Muller Vanguard Racing collection is powered by caliber FM 2800-DT. It is a self-winding mechanical movement with a diameter of 25. 60 mm, and a thickness of 3. 6 mm. In addition to that fine flourish, the movement boasts some different styles of finishing, including Geneva waves, circular graining, diamond polishing, sunray brushing, and 45-degree polishing, as well as heat-blued polished screws.
While the white-dial version with black accents is a very cool watch, neither of the valuable metal variants feel quite as comfortable in their skin as the two steel models. I think this is because of the steel’s suitability for sports replica watches and the stylistic incongruity created by pairing a luxurious metal like 18k rose gold with such a vibrant, edgy design.
Let’s get started right away: The new Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin 15202BC feathers an unique “salmon dial,” and that is not officially named. Look at the renderings provided by Audemars Piguet, and you can see that the dial is tend to be brownish or pink gold color. AP’s official description of the dial is “pink gold-tone dial.” Of course, it’s no problem to call it salmon, but what the exact meaning of it?
The replica watch has a 39mm warm gold dial with white gold indicators and hands. Using Audemars Piguet’s 2121 automatic movement, the 15202BC ticks at 19,900 vph, has a 40-hour power reserve and is only 8mm in thickness. I had seen the 15202BC in person and wrote a introduction about it. I still stick to my assertion that precious metal Royal Oaks were very impressive, and this one is not an exception.
In my opinion, this new watch is salmon-like, if you compare its color to an example like the 25820PT, I think you’ll get where my opinion is coming from. To make comparison, I’ve included a shot of our own fearless leader’s 25820PT below. The date window is more pink in color that this gold-tone example of Audemars Piguet replica the “Petite Tapisserie” dial.
While I think it’s reasonable to say that the color difference is not so large, the 15202BC is obviously more brownish than pink. Brief history lesson aside, the new watch is limited to just 75 pieces, so SIHH is possible the only chance that I’ll ever have one on wrist. As you can imagine, I made the most of the opportunity.
The 39mm size is just perfect and, as I wrote in the introduction, there is something really impressive about the weight and feel of a precious metal Royal Oak. While I may sing the praises of a full gold version, there is something undeniably striking and exquisite about the combination of this gold-tone dial and white gold case. It feels good and looks great.
The replica watches not only proves the high technique of Audemars Piguet’s, but it’s also basically just a color variation of an existing model. Nevertheless, it is an impressive collectible boutique-only limited edition that is going to be almost impossible to purchase on market. With only 75 units distributed to 50 or so boutiques that Audemars Piguet operates around the world, most boutiques will only have one piece, it means that you had better be their best client if you want to buy it. Priced at 55,400 USD, it’s exquisite, thin, and all about the wrist presence, so if you’re expecting to build some annual interest in an aesthetic that remains mostly unchanged after nearly 50 years, this is a good format that I can imagine.
The Rolex Explorer Polar fake watch is the very white-hot accessory to take you through the summer. The stainless steel body and bracelet gleam against that crisp white face and pop against tanned summer skin. To be honest, the Rolex Explorer II, nick-named for its striking white dial, will transition throughout the seasons. What’s more, it is an Explorer anyway. This sturdy, masculine timepiece is going to withstand incredible climates and the test of time with an Oyster case, high-visibility dial and luminous hands, 24-hour bezel, day and night tracker and self-winding mechanism. We’ll also note that Polar’s are exclusive to Explorer II’s, as the originals were only issued with the classic black dial. Now, let’s take a look at three of our favorites that we think would be amazing additions to your collection.
You might find that the dial on this Rolex Explorer II fake watch isn’t exactly crisp white, it’s creamier. It’s technically a manufacturing flaw, but because these watches were only made since those several years, these Explorer’s are extremely rare and sought after.
This replica watch was launched in a short window between the ref. 1655 and the ref. 16570 with a 40mm stainless steel case and a face that was originally white. Over the years a paint flaw has turned it this creamy ivory color, giving it this special look. We prefer how the hour markers also remained white, which makes them pop off of the dial even more.
Since you can spot two other rare elements, you should also take a close look at the face. First, check out how the letter ‘c’ in ‘Chronometer’ and ‘Certified’ line up perfectly above six o’clock. Then, peek at how the bezel — it’s thicker than the bezels Rolex’s issues today and are known as the ‘fat bezels.’ Of course, if you can get your hands on a ref. 16550, don’t pass up the opportunity to add it to your collection.
Even if this is a vintage replica Rolex, the aesthetics have effortlessly transcended time. The 40mm bezel is outfitted with a waterproof Oystercase and clasp, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and an impressive 3185 automatic movement which was brand new at the time. This model is outfitted with a red 24-hour hand and that famously luminous face that’s simple to read in just about any condition. This vintage Rolex is going to sit handsomely on your wrist all summer long as you brave the heat and sip cool drinks.
If you’re in the market for a more modern Explorer II, the amazing replica Rolex Explorer II ref. 216570 is going to be right up your alley. This 42mm watch is outfitted with modern characteristics like a 3187 calibre and a striking orange 24-hour hand like the original, completely different from the red featured on the other two models. However, apart from the contemporary upgrades, the most impressive feature of this timepiece is that brilliant white dial.
A typical model within the fake Rolex’s archives, the Submariner watch was in production from 1959 until the late 1970s. During its 20-year production run, the Submariner 5512 underwent several enhancements such as modifications to the crown guards, caliber changes, and dial updates. Today, there’s a robust market for the Submariner 5512 among vintage replica Rolex watch collectors, therefore, their values are rising all the way. However, there is a myriad of factors that decided the current value of the rolex Submariner watch.
Even though the vintage Explorer replica watch goes by the nickname, “Steve McQueen,” that is not the Rolex watch the actor wore. Actually, the King of Cool wore a Submariner 5512 as his daily watch.
How to get a better understanding of this model? We have to look at how the model differed over the course of its history. Take the crown guards for example. When the model first came out it had square crown guards, followed by pointed crown guards and finally the rounder crown guards we’re now familiar with.
The dials of this model also evolved over its manufacturing run. Early models of the Submariner 5512 were made with non-chronometer certified movements, therefore did not consist of the ubiquitous “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” text on the dial. These versions are referred to two-liner Submariner 5512 since their glossy black dials only have two lines of (gilt) text. The four liner editions were first available with glossy dials with gilt text, followed by matte black dials with white printed text.
As expected, early examples of the Submariner fake watch generally have higher values than later models. The most coveted are the earliest examples that come with square crown guards. Good news for fans of the Submariner 5512 is that later models from the 1970s are substantially less expensive than older versions.
As interest in the vintage Submariner 5512 increases and more people realize that it’s much rarer to find than its sibling, it’s secure to note that its value will also continue to go up as well—at least for the foreseeable future. But like all vintage Rolex replica watches, it’s not just the year and design details that make a difference to the bottom line, but condition and provenance play a big part too.
Not all the watchmakers are as iconic as Rolex replica, and few models as beloved as the Datejust. The mid-20th century classic defined the modern fake watch we know today, making features like a three-hand dial and the date standard. The Datejust has been remodeled and refined over the years – along the way, being worn by presidents and the rich and well-known alike. And while collectors might scramble over certain models, you’re also bound to find them wearing their very own Datejust.
This 18k white gold Datejust is a modern take on this timeless classic – outfitted with striking factors like the trademark crystal Cyclops date and a 36mm waterproof Oyster case. It’s these dignified features alongside modern additions that make this watch almost as iconic as its maker.
The Datejust changed what we expect from a watch forever; yet, we seem to forget how revolutionary this stunning watch was. Back in 1945, the Rolex Corp. revealed the first DateJust in celebration of their 40th anniversary – the date-changing mechanism inside making it the first automatic wristwatch of its kind. Today, we take this handy feature for granted. But upon looking at a modern Datejust, it’s impossible to lose sight of this watch’s timeless allure.
Since the 1940’s, there have been many variations of the Datejust watch. But the Datewatch 16139 pays special homage to the 1950’s and 1960’s Datejust with its 36mm size and classic features like the dial layout, a crystal scratch-resistant Cyclops date, automatic winding, the signature waterproof Oyster case and a satin-smooth 31-jewel movement.
The smaller face gives the fake watch a vintage appeal, yet the shoulders of the case are much broader than the design it was inspired from. It’s this delicate juxtaposition of substantial design and classical features that make this an everyday watch that still turns heads. It is a replica Rolex, after all.
This watch comes in many different dial types, colors and various bracelet selections – including the Jubilee, which was launched with the original Datejust. It’s the innate versatility and elegance of this watch that has made it the choice of the rich and famous both in the boardroom and out on the golf course over the years.
If you’re in the market for an everyday watch that still oozes with luxury, a Datejust fake model should be your top choice. This modern classic is the ultimate combination of performance and style, effortlessly bringing together world-class design with cutting-edge mechanisms.
The Datejust rolex is the kind of watch that can easily transition from daytime to date night or from the office to the court. And whether you have a hefty collection of luxury replica watches or you’re looking to make a first-time investment, we can unsure this watch will feel so good on your wrist you might never take it off – you certainly won’t need to.
The four seasons are in the changeover period, and the watch you’ve been wearing for the last years, as elegant as it is, might not fit your taste or personality any longer. It just so happens that summer is an exciting moment for refreshing your appearance! Now’s the time to choose a new luxury replica watch that is up to date, not just with fashion trends, but with your new you. Here’s our selection of top most popular luxury fake watches you can upgrade to the summer:
1. ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL DATEJUST 31

The replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 series offers a wide variety of combinations including Everose gold, a unique 18K pink gold exclusively created by Rolex in 2005. Pick yours here.
2 BULGARI SERPENTI INCANTATI
The snake is probably one of Bulgari’s most renowned symbol, present in necklaces, bracelets, and wristwatches. In the 1940’s, the Italian jewelry brand took the ancient mythological animal — which stands for strength, wisdom and rebirth — and turned it into a worldwide icon of fine jewelry. Most recently, the Serpenti made a comeback when the brand launched a new line of lady’s watches in Baselworld 2016.
3. AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK OFFSHORE CHRONOGRAPH
The “Lady Tapisserie” design of the fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph is the perfect option for women who are searching for a bold luxury sports watch. The 32 brilliant-cut diamonds, with a total weight of 1.02 CT, give this timepiece a more feminine and delicate essence than the traditional Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph. The 37 mm case is made of stainless steel and is water-resistant to 50 m.
4. HUBLOT BIG BANG BRODERIE
Art, fashion, and innovation converge in two new limited series by Hublot: the Bang Broderie Sugar Skull 41mm and the Big Bang Broderie 41 mm, presented earlier this year at the 2016 Geneva Show. Feminine and bohemian, these series are so special that they come in three runs of 200 pieces each! Check out the exclusive collection here.
5. OMEGA SEAMASTER AQUA TERRA 150 M
White is a summer’s must, and white replica watches make summer looks a fresh and sophisticated accent. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150 Omega Master Co-Axial Ladies’ 38.5 mm is one of our favorites. Its white mother-of-pearl and diamonds dial and white leather strap model makes for the perfect complement for a stunning summer look.
The selection of this week covers a big range of time, from a 1950s Rolex “Big Bubbleback” to a 1970s Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Quartz Digital. There also come two chronographs: a transitional Jean Richard Airstar and a Heuer Carrera 7753 that was originally produced to the Belgian army. Besides, as a bonus, both the fake Rolex and the replica Jaeger-LeCoultre come with their original papers, a very beautiful touch considering many years after their respective dates of production.
Vintage Rolex Bubblebacks were some of the most famous wristwatches at auctions in the late 1980s to early 1990s; they were the stars of the catalogs, with the fake Rolex Daytonas used as filler lots, believe it or not. Apparently, the trend turned, but many auction aficionados today predict a Bubbleback comeback, especially with oversized cases like this replica model, which is 34mm versus the more common 31-32mm diameter for standard Bubblebacks. Absolutely, it’s always better if the watch comes with the original papers, which is the case with this one; we have the chronometer certificate dated back to 1952, and the 1953 purchase receipt.
The serial number engraved between the lugs of this replica Rolex also places its production in 1952, which means a radium dial (tritium did not appear before the early 1960s). Its Super-Oyster patented crown is consistent with a contemporary patent application for an even more water resistant case. The dial is well preserved, and bears the coveted “Officially” red line. The riveted bracelet has spring-loaded links (one of the springs is missing), and can hence stretch on the wrist to accommodate sudden tension, which can help avoid breakage (or just make the watch easier to wear, as it can accommodate a range of wrist sizes).
Recently, we covered an Aquastar Airstar, and discussed the connection with a similar chronograph from Jean Richard – the only version accurately documented in catalogs. This replica watch goes even further, as it shows that the Airstar name was already printed on some dials in pre-Aquastar days. Tag Heuer had a long tradition of serving chronographs to the militaries of a few countries, as evidenced by the Heuer Bundeswehr 1550 SG and this version of the Heuer Carrera reference 7753. The latter was issued to the Belgian Air Force in the early 1970s, hence the “F. Ae” engravings on the caseback for Force Aerienne, or Air Force in French. The Belgian order at the time is estimated at 250 units, but it is believed that 300 watches were eventually made.
While the replica watch here does not exhibit any military markings on the caseback, it is said to come from an owner who used to work for the Belgian army. It characterizes the lumed dial and handset features of this military configuration, and is powered by a manual wound chronograph caliber Valjoux 7733, which was serviced two years ago. The lume on the hands indicates a significant aging difference from the painted numerals, air forces typically having a stringent relume policy to ensure maximum night legibility for its service members.
In the 1970s the LED display briefly appeared to be the future of watch-making, and was deemed such a cool technology that even James Bond got to wear one – the Pulsar P2. Jaeger-LeCoultre did not stand on the sidelines, and offered the 555 Digital in its prestigious Master Quartz line. The funny thing is that this replica version was also provided with Wittnauer branding but the exact manufacturing company hasn’t been discovered yet.
A perfect and significant article on Puristspro says the functioning of the Master Quartz Digital, with the pusher at 2 o’clock for the time, while the pusher at 8 o’clock displays the date in the day-date format. The energy consumption of this system was interesting enough to require two batteries, which are directly accessible from the caseback. The case and mesh bracelet are gold plated, and this funky replica Jaeger-LeCoultre comes full set, with the real box and papers.
The best replica IWC Schaffhausen pays homage to a Swiss boatbuilder Boesch with a unique edition of its Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph for the second time. This newcomer also features mahogany as the dominant element – a mahogany-colored dial and from the inside of the glass back cover there is a mahogany inlay and stylized ship’s propeller made particularly for the watch by Boesch itself.
The top selling fake IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph Edition “Boesch” is the most elegant sports chronograph equipped with the in-house manufactured caliber 89361 mechanical with a flyback function and an analogue display of stop times longer than a minute on a sub-dial. The fake IWC-manufactured caliber oscillates at the fast frequency of 28,800 alternation per hour and is able to save enough power to make the watch ticking for at least 68 hours.
The obviously structured dial characterized a white stopwatch hand as well, a flange with its quarter-second scale for measuring short stop times, together with the luminescent seconds and the hour hands and indexes for the best legibility in low lightening conditions.
There lies an elegant s mahogany dial with the typicalrailway-track-styled chapter ring underneath the front sapphire glass, together with slender feuille-styled hands and simple Arabic numerals as the hour markers. All these are the key design elements which are typical for the original Portugieser from 1939.
The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph fake Edition “Boesch” is housed in a stainless steel case measuring 43.5mm in diameter and 14.5mm in thickness. The screw-down crown, protective shoulders and the chronograph push-pieces stress the special status of the Yacht Club Chronograph model within the Portugieser best replica watch family. The case is shielded with convex sapphire glass with antireflective coating on both sides. The case construction offers a decent water resistance up to 60 meters (approximately 200 feet).
The newest addition to the Portugieser collection comes with a rugged black band made of rubber with an alligator leather inlay for the utmost comfort. A stainless steel folding clasp will keep the watch secured on its future owner’s wrist.
The replica Swiss boatbuilder Boesch is the last in the world to produce serial mahogany runabouts. The famed manufacturer has become a leader in making stylish and functional electric boats, propelled by power cells from the defense industry.
