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.

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.
