What if yellow gold were to make a comeback in the replica watches industry next year? While it never really disappeared, platinum, carbon, rubber, ceramic, steel and titanium have stolen the spotlight from it for several years.
Audemars Piguet is getting back to basics by reviving the traditional precious metal used in the watch industry and launching its Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar watch.
The powerfully designed case of the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Rubens Barrichello II replica, 44mm in diameter, is crafted from solid titanium. It sports a signature octagonal bezel, rendered in black ceramic. The bezel fitted with hexagonal screws. The pushers also made of ceramic.
The new Royal Oak 41mm Diamond Replica model also comes in a other steel versions with a blue dial. The highly legible dials of both versions are adorned with exclusive “Grande Tapisserie” motif.
They are completed with applied steel hour-markers provided with luminescent coating. The the ultra-thin case is made of high-quality stainless steel, and a matching stainless steel band comes equipped with a sturdy deployment clasp.
The black dial reveals a “grand tapisserie” motif in the center. You will notice a the date display at 3 o’clock. The dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
The Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar is powered by new self-winding calibre 5134, which is visible through the sapphire back, with a minimum power reserve of 40 hours.
The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona combines platinum and diamonds to create a stunning timepiece with a jewelled flare. The 40mm Oyster case is created in 950 Platinum and is waterproof to 330 feet and features a patented waterproof system on the winding crown as well.
In fact, the Daytona Paul Newman shown here was sold by Kaplans, a prestigious auction house in Stockholm, for approximately $586,000. A year earlier, another ref. 6263 had set the record by fetching a cool $1.1 million at Christie’s Rolex ‘Lesson One’ Daytona Sale.
Powered by a Caliber 4130, self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, entirely developed by Rolex, the movement is COSC certified, guaranteeing the utmost precision.
On the small sphere located at hour 6 we find the word “DAYTONA” red in color. The hands are also made of stainless steel, and the two hour and minute hands are covered with luminescent paint that makes them shine in the dark. When comparing the original Rolex Daytona watch with the replica of these photos you can see that the fake watch has a dial identical to the original one.
Fitted with an Oyster bracelet, which uses solid platinum three-piece links and an Oysterlock folding safety clasp, this new jewelled Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the perfect addition to any collection
A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post on how to tell the difference between a good Tag Heuer replica and a low quality one. This week I thought I’d write a similar entry focused on the high-end Cartier replica watch, because I’ve been getting a lot of questions from my readers related to this topic.
Housed in the case is a “guiloche” galvonic slate-colored dial, open work satin-finish silvered grid with a sunray effect. It reveals blue sword-shaped hands. The numbers around the timepiece are Arabic numerals and a black transfer Roman numeral at 12 o’clock.
The final touch is provided by a stainless steel bracelet. It is finalized by a fold-over clasp with a double push-button safety system.
Navy blue hands on a white/silver dial with navy blue Cartier roman numerals as markers. Small seconds hand at 6 o’clock and small date window at 3 o’clock. I do like the rounded all polished stainless steel case and the crown that’s really nice cloned. An element that’s not really easy to have in good quality because Cartier always makes it look so expensive. Scratch-proof crystal does the job too so overall the looks are here on this Cartier replica watch.
I should also note that luxury watch makers like Cartier, do no use any adhesive to keep the parts together, so when purchasing a Cartier replica watch you should keep in mind to inspect the edges of the watch to be sure there’s isn’t any trace of adhesive.
