The fake Rolex Deepsea D Blue Dial watch has a gradient showing the decent of James Cameron’s submersible. This behemoth of a watch, the biggest in the Rolex fleet, is a totally impressive piece of engineering and the D-Blue edition is set for future classic status.
One of the trickiest Rolexes to quantify ever since its releasing, the Milgauss is technically a sports watch, seeing as it’s housed in an Oyster case, but a sports watch aimed at scientists.
Its releasing in 2007 with that watch, after the name was discontinued in 1988, retained the Milgauss’s USP—its resistance to magnetic fields by encasing the movement in a soft iron Faraday cage.
The watch’s name originates from the French phrase mille gauss, meaning 1000 gauss. Gauss is the measure of magnetic flux density, which is the thing that powered the Delorean in Back to The Future. But whatever they are, the Milgauss is impervious to 1000 of them.
Although the new generation was originally only available with a black or white dial, they remain among the most colorful of the brand’s sports offerings. The minute track and hour markers are accented in a vivid orange, as is the name under the 12 o’clock position and the second hand, fashioned into the shape of a lightning bolt in a fit of uncharacteristic replica Rolex whimsy.
For the 50th anniversary edition, the brand launched a new version, representing ‘glace verte’, to stand for the green tint on the watch’s sapphire crystal, using a process so complicated that even Rolex haven’t bothered patenting it.
They upped the color stakes even more by releasing the Z Blue in 2004, an identical watch to the anniversary model but with an electric blue Rolex dial (what else?).
What had been the dark horse of the Rolex range and a struggler regarding to sales found a strong audience beyond the laboratory. Still very much the odd one out in the sports range, it’s that exact quality, coupled with its bold scheme of contrasting colors, that has won it its laurels. Where Submariners and GMT-Masters are obvious choices for those seeking out the ultimate tool watch, the quirks of the Milgauss make it a much more special piece.

More data that reports of the Swiss watch industry’s death at the hands of Apple were premature: Nick Hayek, chief executive of the Watch Group, has just declared that sales this summer have accelerated at a “spectacular” rate. Hayek says the Financial Times that the Watch Group, which was facing gloomy forecasts fair recently, returned to profitable growth in the first half of the year.
The “most competitive growth” among the company’s portfolio of brands has come from Omega and Blancpain, he notes. What’s more, the Watch Group owns Breguet, Harry Winston, and Glashütte Original, among others. As the FT notes, not all the industry’s woes were brought on by the smartwatch assault; heavy overstocking in Hong Kong, sluggish global economic growth, and “shifts in consumer and tourist spending patterns” were to blame as well.
In June, the Swiss watch industry federation this week reported that exports were 5.3 percent higher than a year earlier — the second consecutive month showing a meaningful year-on-year growth. Despite the Apple Watch replica almost beating every Swiss watch company, there is a recent change in sales. “The acceleration between the first and second quarters was spectacular,” Hayek notes. He expects fake Watch Group’s net sales to grow at a year-on-year rate of 7 percent to 9 percent in the second half of the year. “In July, our factories are at maximum capacity because the demand coming from our own brands is so strong. At some factories we’re already at the limit.” Watch also makes watch components for third parties.
Different from the rival Richemont, Watch refrained from laying off employees in the wake of last year’s downturn, which now looks like a smart move, as it enables them to handle the uptick in need. “If volumes come back and your machines are running at full capacity, then, of course, you add to your margins,” Hayek tells the Financial Times. Investing in the Watch Group’s top-end watches is probably a good idea. But their stock may be an even better bet. The replica Watch’s share price has risen more than 40 percent over the past year. However, not everyone is as sanguine.

This time, I’ve decided to feature some rare vintage replica watches that we seldom see in this column. It begins with an oversized sector dial Longines, and consists of a fair share of chronographs as well, from the unusual Speedmaster “Holy Grail” to a colorful Breitling Top Time.
Top quality replica Longines with Sector Dial
Before recently coming back into vogue on modern wristwatches, Sector dials enjoyed their heyday in the 1930s. This configuration, favored by Omega replica and Longines, offers outstanding legibility and a very pleasing look. This explains how this very watch reached three times its high estimate at auction back in 2015. Its special case size needs to be pointed out – standing at 37mm, it is definitely oversized for a 1930s wristwatches.
The interesting thing is that it features soldered lugs as frequently seen on many military timepieces. From the Longines archives, we know that it was delivered to Longines’s agent in Poland in March 1938. As expected with a snap caseback, the dial shows a bit of aging, but the attractive second and hour rings are well preserved. The contrast between the blued handset and the red seconds hand on the two-tone sector dial is to me the winning argument of this rare Longines. 
Here, the “Holy Grail” comes on the correct bracelet, this replica watch used in the 1980s and resembling to some extent to the Rolex President bracelet. The painted indexes on the dial shows the light patina that we were expecting from a watch of that period, but the thickness and length of the minute and hour’s hands likely indicate that those are replacement parts.
The other is the replica Omega Holy Grail
There are many reasons to love vintage Movado chronographs. First, their movements M90 and M95 (two- and three-register) are in-house and quirky: they start and stop with the lower pusher and are reset with the upper one, the opposite of most other chronographs.
Here, this chronograph comes with a nicely brushed dial, which tritium lume allows date to the 1960s. The tritium shows the same patina on the hands and the dial, which is always a reassuring sign. The seller mentions some lume loss on the dial, and a couple of dings on the case, most notably on the bezel and the upper left lug. The “Sub-Sea” engravings on the caseback confirm the original waterproof of the Borgel case.

IWC is updating its Da Vinci family in 2017, including a return to the real round case which popularized this line back in the 1980s. The Da Vinci Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph Watch is the flagship model for the redesigned collection, which combines a flying tourbillon with hacking mechanism, a chronograph and a retrograde date.
The designers in the factory set the tourbillon cage on the initial fourth wheel whilst the small seconds sub-dial was stepped into a central seconds. The flying tourbillon makes a complete rotation every minute, thus meaning the tourbillon bridge can function well as a seconds hand too. To unite these three complications for the very first time, the replica IWC redesigned the model. replica IWC
You could notice that a fully fledged tourbillon was integrated to replace the small seconds counter at the 6 o’clock position. The hour and minute chronograph indications stay on the top of the dial at the 12 o’clock position. The chronograph with a flyback function can record elapsed-time intervals up to 11 hours and 59 minutes. In addition, the central chronograph seconds hand can measure stopped times with high precision up to 1/4-second. The chronograph can be set via two golden push-pieces set on either side of the crown. There is a retrograde date indication as well which describes a gentle arc on the left-hand side of the dial. The date hand jumps back to 1 after the 31st of the month automatically.
The pallet and escape wheel are manufactured from diamond-coated silicon which offers a decent 68 hours of power reserve when fully charged. This quite hard material has a good sliding property which could help reduce friction. It operates at the rapid frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour (4 Hz).
The fake IWC Da Vinci Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph with this model is styled and sized to make a great impression on potential customers. The 18-carat red gold case measures 44mm in diameter and 17mm in thickness. The gorgeous case is shielded with sapphire crystals and constructed to offer water proof up to 30 meters (100 feet).
There is an arched sapphire glass from the front side, together with antireflective coating on both sides, while form the rear there is see-through sapphire-glass back which offers a look at the impeccable IWC-manufactured caliber with its solid red gold rotor.
The new Da Vinci Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph replica watch comes with the movable horns which ensure that the Santoni alligator leather band fits perfectly on the wrist. The dark brown leather strap is secured with a red gold folding clasp.

Audemars Piguet watches

Audemars Piguet replica watch has launched some great images of the new Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph Watch which will be officially unveiled at the upcoming Watches & Wonders exhibition in Hong Kong. This new model combines an unusual chronograph-tourbillon mechanism crafted from Renaud & Papi which has a carbon composite case. Audemars Piguet replica aude-087886_05
This fake watch is a member of the iconic Royal Oak Offshore luxury sports watch collection by Audemars Piguet. It is a supersized successor of the original Royal Oak from 1972. The Royal Oak Offshore is born 21 years later, in 1993, followed by its many versions and special limited editions acquired some of a cult among Audemars Piguet fans. This year’s novelty boasts recognizable Royal Oak Offshore strongbox case, octagonal bezel and “Tapisserie” pattern.
The Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph is manufactured with the latest Caliber 2897 automatic mechanical movement which has been specially made for this model. The exceptional self-winding movement characterized a tourbillion and a column-wheel chronograph and has the beating rate of 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour (3Hz).
Thanks to a peripheral oscillating weight mounted on ball bearings, the automatic winding is achieved a lot. A striking tourbillion complication can be seen through a cut-out on the dial side at the 6 o’clock position.
The movement consists of 335 individual parts, each beveled, polished, chamfered and decorated entirely by hand. All movement parts are well decorated and boast the high level of finish expected from replica watches for men. The movement provides at least 65 hours of power reserve.
The exquiste mechanism is housed in a forged carbon case, with black ceramic bezel, crown, and push pieces, as well as titanium push-piece guards. Its sturdy case measures 44mm in diameter and 14mm in thickness.
A dark-colored dial features a signature Audemars Piguet’s “Mega Tapisserie” motif and offers a high level of legibility. Apart from a tourbillon aperture, there is also a small seconds counter at the 9 o’clock position, and a 30-minute chrono counter which is placed at the 3 o’clock position. 
A modern, sleek black look of the new Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon is complemented with a black rubber strap, ending with a titanium pin buckle. The Watches & Wonders exhibition is held by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) and stands for the most significant event of this kind in Asia. This year, the invite-only event for thousands of collectors and fine watchmaking admirers will be held for the second time soon.

As the newest edition on the Baselworld, a 50th anniversary edition has been brought out by Rolex Replica of its renowned Sea-Dweller, include the well-known red text. In spite of the predictable shortage of the new model, not all of the retro tweaks pleased diehard Rolex fans, for who the innovative Double Red Sea-Dweller keeps a holy grail. Now London’s prominent Project X Designs has make known their own tribute to the 1967 original with those purists in mind.
That represents a momentous premium over the new Sea-Dweller, which assuming you can get hold of one. For all of its good-looking appearance, some would say Rolex Replica went a bit away modernizing the new 43mm Sea-Dweller, particularly with an extra a “Cyclops” date lens, which many think ruins the model’s streamlined look.Rolex Replica
There is no controversial cyclops lens on the Project X version, one suggestion that it is actually made to narrowly look like the initial prototype Sea-Dwellers known variously as the “Single Red”, the “MK0”, “MK1” and “Patent Pending”, which can command a high price on the unusual occasions when they surface at auction. Project X’s piece is at the basis of the ceramic bezel Sea-Dweller, the reigning Sea-Dweller model previous to replica Rolex’s update. It is restricted to just 67 examples in honor of the original debut year. Other evidences as to its stimulation comprise the extra-large word DATE in respect to the first time a Rolex dive watch had featured this complication; the vintage patinated style of 5 minute markers; and visible lug holes on the case sides.
In the end, the words ‘OYSTER GAS ESCAPE VALVE’ & ‘PATENT PENDING’ is in the back case, font and location of the original vintage ‘Single Red’ Sea-Dweller finished with a black enamel bezel, and the sole restricted version number for each replica Rolex watch is written follows the below format: ‘1.67’ It’s not the first time Project X, whose blacked-out replica watches have been spotted on the wrists of Kanye West and Daniel Craig, which has created a “heritage” edition of a well-known Rolex model. Actually it predicted another excellent Rolex design, the new cerachrome Daytona is with a limited edition version which integrated a number of the prominent “Paul Newman” dues to boot. Keep an eye on these guys. 

Omega’s investment in Emirates Team New Zealand’s bid to capture the America’s Cup has just paid off big time. The Kiwis scored a historic victory against Oracle Team USA, backed by rival watch brand Panerai, in Bermuda. Land Rover BAR, backed by Zenith, was knocked out in qualifying races as ETNZ emerged as a major threat to Oracle’s supremacy.
It seemed a little late in the schedule when the replica Omega announced two special edition replica watches for the Cup several weeks ago. What a pity, it looks like they knew their teams would come out on top. This fake Omega equipped the winning crew with a uniquely-made Speedmaster designed for yacht racing, the Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ. Its regatta function permitted the team to keep track of the critical five-minute countdown to the start of each race. The brand introduced a commemorative Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black ETNZ edition as well.
Omega’s partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand actually began in 1995. It was when they first won the America’s Cup with legendary round-the-world skipper Sir Peter Blake. The team won again in 2000 and came very close in 2013 though that bid ultimately failed. Meanwhile, Omega replica launched two watches for this event as well as increased its sponsorship over the years. This year, their logo was prominently featured on the ETNZ boat. 
“Everyone at Omega is thrilled with this incredible result,” says Omega President and CEO Raynald Aeschlimann. “We’ve followed ETNZ’s America’s Cup journey from the start and always believed they could win. They came to Bermuda with an inspiring team spirit along with the best innovation possible and it was my personal pleasure to spend time with them and cheer them on. It’s a privilege for our brand to have played a part.”
Such a trophy as this which dates from1851 is an honor. What’s more, they get awarded for their efforts they get an added perk. ETNZ essentially holds the chance to make the rules and pick the next location for this prestigious event. This means it will almost surely take place in Auckland, New Zealand under the auspices of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. While Zenith boss Jean-Claude Biver is likely to be fuming at the reversal of fortune, it wasn’t a total loss. In terms of fake watches, Panerai’s limited edition pieces were definitely the most amazing. Omega replica now has time to develop even greater America’s Cup watches and with the winners in their corner, we expect something pretty great.

TAG Heuer Autavia is one of the largest new watch releases of the year for vintage fans. The result of the Autavia Cup competition, which asked fans to vote on their favorite vintage model for TAG Heuer to recreate, the watch takes the brash ’60s racing style of the original and makes it the basis of a thoroughly contemporary watch. We showed you the prototype last year and gave you the full specs of the final model when it debuted officially at Baselworld. But that’s just the beginning of the story.
Jeff Stein – founder of OnTheDash, and Talking replica Watches veteran – is the authority on all things vintage Heuer. So, obviously, when I heard he’d taken delivery of his 2017 Autavia, I knew we needed to talk. Luckily, Jeff is a generous man and offered to do an on-the-record interview after spending some serious wrist-time with his new watch.
We talked about how Jeff first heard about the new Autavia, his involvement in the process, and why, even as a hardcore Heuer guy, he was still able to find some surprises in the new watch.
My introduction to the watch was in November 2015. I was in New York for the replica TAG Heuer’s releasing of the Connected watch, and was just sort of hanging out with the guys from TAG Heuer Replica. I had known many of them for a while as pen pals and from swapping emails and such. This was the first time that I had met the social and electronic media guys, and they introduced me to Jean-Claude Biver, and we began talking about the recent surge in interest in the vintage Autavias. TAG Heuer Replica
Of course, he’d had the thought before, but I suggested to him that this would be the perfect time to do a reissue of the Autavia. Therefore, we started looking at my website and searching for the various versions, and talking about which ones collectors were chasing, which ones had the value in the market, etc. He basically looked at me and said, “Well, you guys, the collecting community, tell me which one you want and you’ll have it in early 2017.”
He said there were two conditions. It had to be a traditional round case, the style of the 1960s, and it had to be an acceptable modern size. He threw out 42 millimeters, which is exactly what it turned out to be.

The replica Rolex brought out a 50th anniversary edition of its legendary Sea-Dweller at the latest version of Baselworld, which complete with the famous red text. In spite of the anticipated scarcity of the new model, not all of the retro tweaks pleased diehard Rolex fans, for the original Double Red Sea-Dweller remains a holy grail. Now London’s prestigious Project X Designs has come out with their own tribute to the 1967 original with those purists in mind.
For all of its surface good looks, some would say the fake Rolex went a little too far modernizing the new 43mm Sea-Dweller, especially with the addition of a “Cyclops” date lens, which many think ruins the model’s streamlined appearance. 
The Project X version does not have the controversial cyclops lens, one indication that it is in fact made to closely resemble the earliest prototype Sea-Dwellers known variously as the “Single Red”, the “MK0”, “MK1” and “Patent Pending”. Project X’s piece is based on the ceramic bezel Sea-Dweller the reigning Sea-Dweller model prior to Rolex’s update. It is limited to just 67 examples in honor of the original debut year. Other clues as to its inspiration include the oversized word DATE in homage to the first time the fake Rolex dive watch had featured this complication; the vintage patinated style of 5 minute markers; and visible lug holes on the case sides.
The case back features the words ‘OYSTER GAS ESCAPE VALVE’ & ‘PATENT PENDING’ in the style, font and position of the original vintage ‘Single Red’ Sea-Dweller finished with a black enamel bezel, and the special limited edition number for each watch is written in the following format: ‘1.67’ It’s not the first time Project X has produced a “heritage” edition of a legendary Rolex model, and the blacked-out replica watches have been spotted on the wrists of Kanye West and Daniel Craig,. As a matter of fact, it anticipated another smashing replica Rolex design, the new cerachrome Daytona, with a limited edition version that incorporated some of the famous “Paul Newman” attributes to boot.

According to our deep look at the GMT-Master family of replica watches, we now turn our attention to the replica Rolex Sea-Dweller collection. From the very first Sea-Dweller to the brand new model unveiled at Baselworld this year, let’s share the history of the Rolex extreme diver’s watch. To begin with, we will talk about the fake Rolex Sea-Dweller model “Double Red Sea-Dweller.”
Compagnie Maritime d’Expertises, aka Comex, is a French company involved in deep diving operations. Founded in 1961, Comex and Rolex established a relationship early on. Comex needed watches which could withstand very deep diving expeditions, so Rolex obliged. This vintage timepiece from Rolex is a historically important watch and a stepping stool for future Sea-Dwellers to come. 
The replica Rolex modified the Submariner and fitted it with a Helium Escape Valve (HEV). The patented Helium Escape Valve mechanism allowed the watch to launch built-up helium and other gasses as the watch traveled down to more extreme depths. Therefore, this prevented pressure damage to the watch, thus Rolex replica now would be able to produce nice diving watches.
The performance of those Comex-modified Submariner watches did so well, it set the blueprint for a new Rolex model. The new replica Rolex Sea-Dweller was born in 1967. The official name of the inaugural model was the Sea-Dweller Submariner 2000. But, it’s more commonly referred to as the Double Red Sea-Dweller or DRSD for short.
The very first Sea-Dweller from 1967 was the other model. Compared to the Submariner, it had a thicker case among other things, the helium escape valve, a domed crystal protecting the face of the watch, engravings on the caseback, and no Cyclops lens over the date window. However, one of the most distinguishing factors, and the reason for the watch’s nickname, are the two lines of red text on the black dial. In red, we read “SEA-DWELLER” followed by “SUBMARINER 2000,” clearly indicating that this is a souped-up version of the Sub. Rather than the 660 feet (200 meters) depth rating of the preceding Submariner, the Sea-Dweller boasted one at 2,000 feet (610 meters). This was an impressive feat for the era indeed.
Without disappointment, the Double Red Sea-Dweller is a highly-coveted vintage Rolex model. Rolex produced the DRSD from 1967 until 1977. The four main dial versions of the Double Red Sea-5 are categorized by collectors as Mark I, Mark II, Mark III, and Mark IV. 
The Double Red Sea-Dweller is a hard and sophisticated vintage Rolex model to find due to its rarity and popularity. It’s surely a grail watch by any Rolex enthusiasts’ standards. The DRSD’s value has steadily risen in the secondary market over the last decade, with no signs of slowing down. Keep an eye out for the next installment of our in-depth look at the Sea-Dweller history where we dig into the model that replaced the DRSD: the Sea-Dweller “Great White”.
