The panda is not only the national treasure of China, but also is the mascot of the world. The god may be use up the color when creating the pandas, but just these “black and white bears”are really charming. The image of panda not only just shows up in the daily life, even in the watchmaking industry also can be seen. Just like the famous black and white replica Rolex Daytona watches.
China is panda’s hometown, and the black and white replica Rolex Daytona watch is one big feature of Rolex, what else? Of course yes, the black and white dial not just the feature of Rolex, actually IWC also with.
The fake black and white replica IWC watch can be said as very old, and one of them there is a red second hand replica IWC IW370802 watch which launched in 2003, in order to celebrate the America’s cup in 2003, IWC specially launched this replica IWC IW370802 watch.
Different from the black and white fake Rolex Daytona watches, this one not only with the color of the panda on the dial design but also engraved the “PANDA”on the dial, which actually the “Panda” watch.
To say this replica IWC watch, the most classic one that must be the black and white color, without other decorate, just presenting this classic color, making this replica IWC watch so special.
The first IWC Ingenieur went on sale some time during the mid-fifties and was designed to be a watch for scientists and technicians. However, the Ingenieur has undergone significant changes in recent years, not just in its design, but also in its purpose. The Ingenieur today is more of sports watch that is targeted at petrolheads and racing enthusiasts, but this trio adopts the more classic case design of pre-Genta models. To further cement the Ingenieur’s positioning as the petrolhead’s watch of choice, IWC released three new small calendar IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Special Edition copy watches last year to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the annual Goodwood Member’s Meeting, a weekend-long vintage racing event.
When these three watches were unveiled last year, they also heralded a new look for IWC’s Ingenieur. Gone are the integrated lugs, crown protectors, and angular lines inspired by the earlier Ingenieur watches designed by the legendary Gerald Genta. Instead, the new Ingenieur Chronograph features a more classically-styled and restrained case design that has more in common with the very first Ingenieur watches from the ’50s.
In the past, the Ingenieur was notable for its self-winding movement, which featured the Pellaton winding system as well as its soft iron cage, which could withstand magnetic fields of up to 80,000 A/m. Said to be designed especially for scientists, researchers, and technicians who had to work in highly magnetic environments, it was to IWC what the Milgauss was to Rolex.
Back to these watches. Case diameter is a relatively modest 42mm, which isn’t too large as far as modern watches go. Most sport chronographs tend to be around 44mm and above these days, so the slightly smaller size of these new Ingenieur Chronograph Special Edition watches is bound to delight readers who love more moderately sized watches. Unfortunately, at slightly over 15mm, the case is still quite thick, a malady that afflicts many modern sport chronographs. On the bright side, this, along with the chunky crown and chronograph pushers, ensures that these special edition Ingenieur Chronograph watches have considerable wrist presence.
On the inside, these transparent case back IWC new Ingenieur Chronograph Special Edition fake watches will be powered by IWC’s in-house Caliber 69370. This movement was specifically developed to replace the Valjoux 7750 used in entry-level IWC chronograph watches. As a result, the Caliber 69370 shares the same dimensions as the Valjoux 7750, but with two notable improvements. It features a column wheel instead of a basic cam, and has a more efficient winding system. Power reserve is 46 hours and the dial configuration is similar to the Valjoux 7750, with sub-dials at 12, 9, and 6 o’clock as well. The key difference, however, is that the running seconds of the Caliber 69370 is at 6 o’clock rather than 9 o’clock. The movement is nicely finished and can be admired through a sapphire display case back.
The most exclusive of the three is the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood.” It features a red gold case and a black dial with red gold accents. The tachymeter scale, which sits on the chapter ring, as well as the markings for the sub-dials, have prints in rose gold. The hour markers are also quite unusual in the sense that they are made up of a lume dot and an applied stick marker. Both are red gold and applied with luminescent material. Time is easily read off the thick baton-style hands, which are also applied with lume.
To distinguish the running seconds hand from the chronograph registers, the running seconds hand is a solid red arrow hand. The hands for the chronograph seconds hand as well as the 12-hour and 30-minute registers are red gold with red tips. Speaking of the 12-hour and 30-minute registers, the last 2 hours and 5 minutes of each respective register is marked in red. This makes the registers look like the fuel gauges of race cars, which turn red as the tank nears empty. There’s an unobtrusive date window at 3 o’clock, which features a black date wheel so that it stands out less from the dial and rose gold fonts for the date. Very cool.
With the release this month of the IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month Edition “50 Years Aquatimer fake watches,” limited to just 50 pieces worldwide, the Schaffhausen-based IWC brand not only commemorates the 50th anniversary of its Aquatimer divers’ watch in grand style, but also punches its ticket to the exclusive (but steadily growing) club of watch companies that have introduced new materials into watchmaking.
The new material in question is called Ceratanium, and it is — as one might glean from its name — a composite of ceramic and titanium, boasting the hardness and scratch-resistance of the former while also retaining the latter’s lightness and unbreakability; its distinctive matte-black surface also scores high for skin tolerance and corrosion resistance. IWC’s materials experts spent five years developing this alloy, and the desired result was achieved in time to debut it on this special edition celebrating the half-century mark for the Aquatimer, a pioneer among dive watches when it debuted in 1967 with its 200-meter water resistance and internal rotating bezel. The combination of ceramic and titanium in a new composite material is also apt, as IWC played a major role in bringing both materials to watchmaking in the 1980s.
The watch’s matte-black Ceratanium case is 49 mm in diameter and 19.5 mm thick, with a convex sapphire crystal over the dial that has been treated with nonreflective coating on both sides. Like all models in the Aquatimer collection since its revamp in 2014, it features an external/internal rotating bezel for setting dive times, paired with IWC’s proprietary SafeDive system, which ensures that the internal bezel can only be adjusted once the external bezel is rotated counterclockwise, thus preventing accidental movement of the dive scale and adding an extra layer of protection for a diver keeping track of his air supply underwater. The black rubber strap is outfitted with a quick-change system that enables the wearer to easily swap it out with another strap.
The dial, which is also predominantly black, with white and red highlights, displays this timepiece’s array of complications. The date and month are indicated in large numerals in the style of a digital watch, and because the watch is a perpetual calendar, it automatically recognizes the different lengths of months and even leap years, so no adjustments will need to be made to the date until 2100, provided the watch is kept running. In addition to the perpetual calendar, the watch is equipped with a flyback chronograph function, with elapsed hours and minutes tallied in a single subdial at 12 o’clock.
The movement that drives all of these functions is IWC’s manufacture Caliber 89802, which for this timepiece has had several of its components — including its winding rotor — finished with black coating to harmonize with the overall matte black look. Visible behind a sapphire exhibition caseback, this self-winding movement has 51 jewels, a 28,800-vph frequency, and a 68-hour power reserve.
The charming blue dial Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master copy watch, a sailors’ watch introduced in 1992, underwent a major facelift recently in both its design and technology. In 2012, Rolex released a version with an Oyster case made of its patented alloy Rolesium, and a cool, blue dial with brushed sunray pattern.
Rolesium, a material developed by Rolex and used here in the Yacht-Master’s 40-mm diameter Oyster case, is an alloy of 904L stainless steel and platinum. The bezel, which rotates in both directions and now has a notched ring with 120 gradations, is made entirely of 950 platinum. It has a smooth, sand-blasted finish, except for the raised numerals and indices, which are polished. The hour markers on the nautical-looking blue dial are made of 18k white gold and filled with a luminescent material called Chromalight, which gives off a strong, blue-tinted glow in the dark. Rolex’s traditional Oyster case — with a middle piece crafted from a solid block of the corrosion-resistant alloy and a fluted, hermetically screwed caseback — is water-resistant to 100 meters. The screw-down crown is protected by a crown guard built into the middle case and also features the patented Triplock water-proofing system. Another Rolex trademark — the “Cyclops” magnifying lens over the date, is found at 3 o’clock and made of highly scratch-resistant synthetic sapphire.
Inside the Yacht-Master beats Rolex’s manufacture Caliber 3135, an automatic movement that has been certified by the Swiss testing agency COSC as a chronometer. Like other Rolex movements, it features an oscillating system with a blue hairspring made of Parachrom, an alloy developed and patented by Rolex. According to the company, this hairspring is highly resistant to shocks, magnetic fields and temperature variations, which ensures greater stability in timekeeping precision.
A sold-link Oyster bracelet in 904L stainless steel completes the package, with polished center links and satin-finished outer links. The improved Oysterlock safety clasp, another patented Rolex development, has a security system to prevent accidental opening and also contains the Easylink quick-extension technology, which lets the wearer easily increase the bracelet length by about 5 mm. Technical specs for the big calendar Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master fake watches (retail price: $11,550) can be found below the photo.

DIAL & HANDS
Blue dial with sunray finish, 18k white-gold hands and appliques with Chromalight for long-lasting luminescence, red seconds hand
It is quite amazing how one person can have such an enduring impact on an industry. It is unparalleled to be so influential that the DNA of their designs are embedded in so many different watches, from a wide array of brands. I, of course, am referring to Gerald Genta. In 1976, after having already penned the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus, Gerald Genta re-designed the Ingenieur for IWC, dubbed the Ingenieur SL.
This was at the height of the “quartz crisis”, however, and the Ingenieur SL was a flop with just about 550 pieces sold.
Evolution of the Ingenieur
Over the years to come, IWC introduced various references of the Ingenieur with quartz and mecha-quartz movements until, finally, the model was again refreshed with an in-house automatic movement in 2005. The evolution continued when in 2013, to mark their partnership with Formula 1 team Mercedes AMG, IWC introduced several models with racing inspired designs and high-tech materials.
These watches ranged from a simple time-only sports watch to serious haute horology with a constant-force tourbillon. It was at this time that IWC also debuted the calendar Ingenieur Double Chronograph Titanium copy watches, reference 3865. This watch was true to the Formula 1 design ethos with a titanium case and functional bezel screws made from ceramic. However, the standout of this piece, is the double chronograph movement allowing you to time intervals with the press of a rubber-clad pusher.
Powering the Double Chronograph
The movement inside the Ingenieur Double Chronograph is a unique modification of the Valjoux 7750 that is protected by an anti-magnetic soft-iron cage. In 1992 Richard Habring invented a module that would bring the split-second chronograph complication to a much more attainable price level and integrated it to the 7750 calibre. What all this means is you get a reliable, tried and true base movement, that has been through the wringer in countless watches for over 40 years, and a high-end complication to boot. Hard to beat the horological bang-for-your-buck offered here.
If you’re not familiar with the split-second chronograph function, here is an explanation from IWC:
Unlike a standard chronograph, the split-seconds chronograph has two hands that start simultaneously. The rattrapante or split-seconds hand, which is superimposed on the stopwatch hand, can be stopped independently using a third button at “10 o’clock”, while the stopwatch hand continues to run. This permits the user to record two separate times, precisely to the second, within any given minute. If the third button is pushed again, the split-seconds hand instantaneously catches up and is synchronized with the other hand. The process can be repeated as often as desired.
IWC’s design of the chronograph pushers is great in this execution. They are low-profile and shaped to mimic the outline of the case so they are very unobtrusive. In many rattrapante watches the pushers can be a bit gaudy.
The unidirectional winding automatic rotor in the Valjoux 7750 is notorious for it’s characteristic “wobble” and loud clicks as it spins the mainspring up to 44 hours of power reserve. Some collectors find this trait endearing, while others find it quite annoying. Regardless of your point of view on that issue, IWC has somehow managed to eliminate the wobble and almost completely silence the spinning of the rotor, resulting in a smooth and unnoticeable winding operation.
After IWC finishes their modifications, the movement is placed inside a 45mm wide, 16mm high case rated to be water resistant to 120 meters. There is no doubt that this is a large sport oriented watch but, fortunately, because of the titanium construction it doesn’t feel oversized and is actually comfortable to wear all day. If the case was steel, you’d certainly need a break at some point. The tapered rubber strap is integrated into the case at an angle that allows it to conform to your wrist with almost no pressure points. I would have preferred a deployant clasp to the tang buckle that comes on the watch but, that is certainly not a show-stopper.
Wearing the Ingenieur
In daily-wear, this really is a fun watch. The silvered three-dimensional dial is far from boring; with black applied indexes that create a stark contrast making it very easy to read the time at a glance. This is further enhanced by the sapphire crystal treated with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. In addition to the split-second function, the chronograph keeps track of time for up to 12 hours via two sub dials, and there is a quick-change day and date indication for good measure. As I alluded to earlier, the chrono pushers, screw-down crown, and crown guards are all clad in rubber, making them easy to grip and use. The luminescent hands IWC fake wacthes will totally change your life.
I’ve been doing hands-on reviews for a few years now but, I experienced something for the very first time with this watch: I didn’t wear any other watches while I had it. From the moment I received it, to the painful departure when I sent it back, I was obsessed with this watch. IWC has built a surefire winner with this one. A few years ago IWC had the marketing slogan, “Engineered for Men.”
TUNED TO PERFECTION. Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen apparently enjoys a close partnership with Mercedes-AMG, the sports car arm of Mercedes Benz
This year IWC Schaffhausen celebrates its partner’s 50th anniversary with a special limited edition model from the Ingenieur family. The white dial of the Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition “50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG” copy watch is a clear nod to the classic red-white-and-black color combinations typically found at racetracks.
The 44mm titanium case IWC fake watches also seems quite fitting for such a sporty timepiece, while the flyback chronograph perfectly illustrates the shared passion between the two companies for precision engineering.
The stainless steel case Rolex Daytona 116520 copy watches have been with us for over 16 years, from its debut in 2000 until its replacement, the part-ceramic 116500 (hands-on here) debuted in 2016. The steel Daytona has not only been a rare bird that Rolex has often made extremely difficult to obtain, but also an icon among luxury chronographs. I had one around for a couple of weeks and, not too long after starting to wear it, I asked myself the question: is the steel Daytona a real watch lover’s watch? Has it aged well? Has it retained its magic, or has its fame made it let its guard down as competition became fiercer every year? Lots of questions on my mind, so I set off seeking answers.
A Brief, Non-Teary-Eyed Recap Of The History Of The Rolex Daytona
There’s a saying in Hungarian that, in direct translation, goes like “it’s coming out my elbow by now.” Although, come to think of it, I am not quite sure how this scientifically questionable saying caught on, the Daytona’s history at this point may very well be coming out your elbow too – you have heard it so many times.
If you have no friends and want to make sure it stays that way, try and meet new ones in hotel lobbies, or on the internet, mocking everything, all the time. Alternatively, just learn these numbers and use them often at public gatherings: 6239, 6240, 6262, 6269, 16520, 116520. There are more of these Daytona references, but these shall already suffice to keep decent and fun human beings from spending too much time around you, should you talk about these frequently. The emphasis is on not calling everything by its reference all the time like a total douche – and not on being ignorant about watch history.
Although Rolex has been producing chronographs since at least the thirties, the Daytona’s history can actually be traced back to the fifties, when Rolex made a few chronographs which they at times rather unimaginatively titled “Chronograph.” The five lines of boasting on watch dials was but a mere dream at that point. Rolex appears to not really want you to know much about these ousted models – not one pre-Daytona chronograph is in their otherwise really quite detailed history page, nor is one in their yet more detailed history page on their press-only site.
In a nutshell, the so-called “pre-Daytona” history that you may want to know is the fact that the Cosmograph name Rolex registered as early as 1955, and that the reference 6238, introduced in 1961 (some sources say 1963), was a solid-looking Cosmograph that didn’t yet have the Daytona name added to it. What Rolex does want you to know is the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona reference 6239 from 1963, the first “proper Daytona.” It was nicknamed “Daytona” after Rolex’s association with the Daytona International Speedway began in 1962. Still, to date, the full name of the Daytona is Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.
Let us leap into the future, leaving the rest of Rolex Daytona history – filled with weird, fascinating and rare references – to you to research, and get straight to the Rolex Daytona reference 16520. Notice the 5-digit reference as opposed to the modern variants’ 6-digit number. Introduced in 1988 and in production until 2000, the 16520 is often referred to as the “Zenith Daytona” as it was equipped with the Rolex 4030 caliber, a movement based on the Zenith El Primero that Rolex modified mainly by fitting a different escape wheel and hairspring, and by dropping its operating frequency from the El Primero’s famed 5Hz to 4Hz. Before 1988, Rolex Cosmograph Daytonas used hand-wound, Valjoux-based calibers.
2000 saw the debut of the Rolex Daytona 116520 and with it the famed Rolex 4130 caliber that is, of course, beating inside this review unit as well as the latest, 2016-generation of the Daytona. The dials and the bracelet have also been changed around 2000, but this is not a comparison between these earlier models, so let’s concentrate on this review’s 16-year-standing “Steel Daytona” – as is called in hush whispers among watch enthusiasts who have been familiarized with the stupendously long waiting lists and stratospheric, albeit reportedly self-inflicted exclusivity of it.
About Why The Steel Daytona Has Been So Difficult To Get
I mean, I dare not think how many articles, forum posts, Q&A’s I have read and discussions I have had about the Rolex Daytona, and a lot of them at least touched upon this remarkable exclusivity of the steel Daytona. If you had the gold one it just meant you had more money to spend on it, but in watch enthusiast circles rocking a steel one to this day means you likely dedicated a lot of effort in hunting one of these down – if it were to come from authorized sources, that is.
One thing I hand on heart do not recall reading or hearing is what could very well be the real reason for the limited availability of the steel Daytona: its movement (and, since its 2016 update, which we’ll look at in a separate review, the ceramic bezel), that is very costly and difficult to produce. Time and again we see brands painstakingly develop complicated movements or other features which they will only make available in precious metal cased versions – even if other models of the same brand do come in steel. The reason behind this tactic is that the much higher mark-up on precious metal cases help cover the very high costs of both the development and the manufacturing of said new movements or features.
Just to find a most fitting example from Rolex’s recent past: the new “Pepsi” GMT-Master II (hands-on here) with its bi-color, massive-pain-in-the-neck-to-make ceramic bezel, that (some say, and I agree) to date comes exclusively in white gold because the bezel is just too difficult and costly to make in the price range and in the volume of steel GMTs. Based on what I learned about manufacturing colored ceramics, I’ll go so far as to say the source of the issue is in the pigments used to color it as pigments don’t take the heat required to produce ceramic quite well and often form faulty areas in the surface. The “Batman” or “BLNR” is a modern steel GMT that has a bi-color ceramic bezel, but with two easier-to-produce colors. Okay, we got super side-tracked here.
All this was to say that steel Daytona supplies have been consistently limited likely because it has a movement that was and perhaps still is very difficult and expensive to produce up to Rolex standards at steel Rolex price points – even if the white luminescent indexes Rolex Daytona 116520 fake watches‘ retail price has admittedly almost doubled between 2000 and 2015.
Some Food For Thought Concerning The Daytona’s Allure – And If It’ll Last
Cutting straight to the chase, the Rolex Daytona 116520 changes its looks like few other watches do: it can quickly (and without notice!) transform from being one of the most versatile, elegant and sporty watches to one of the most boring and sedative timekeepers. I wish I didn’t have to, but feel like I should, so I’ll say that design preferences and the effects of a watch’s aesthetic are down to personal preferences, so your experience may differ from mine – but I will say there’s a good chance that some time into wearing the steel Daytona you’ll come to a similar conclusion as mine.
The Daytona provides one unquestionably iconic aesthetic and beholding a piece of that can feel both rewarding and infirmative. Here’s my issue with it: most iconic designs that you see gazillions around you are only appreciated by die-hard fans and enthusiasts if said designs have fascinating details and numerous variables. Think of the 911, for example. It’s everywhere, but you can change its specification, not to mention various special editions, limited production runs, technological variations and other factors; so, while a considerable percentage of 911 drivers may be yahoos who know nothing about the car, true enthusiasts remain loyal because there are always details that they find fascinating.
This steel Rolex Daytona 116520, over its 16-years, I feel, has failed to offer a refreshing range of fascinating details – let alone offer many of them. Even tracking the serial numbers and production years have been killed off in 2011 with the introduction of soulless random serials. Rolex’s reasons to keep things this very consistent are to be discussed in a separate article – because this does happen for a few logical reasons – but their cumulative effect on the steel Daytona ownership experience are very much relevant here.
Watches of Switzerland is an Australian retailer of luxury watches established in 1997 and an official retailer for a number of brands. They were also the original distributor for IWC in Australia up until 2000 when Richemont acquired the brand. So, to celebrate its 20 years in business (see our interview with Watches of Switzerland here), they have teamed up with IWC to produce the Arabic numerals IWC Pilots Chronograph Watches Of Switzerland 20th Anniversary Limited Edition watch.
This isn’t the first time that Watches of Switzerland has teamed up with IWC to produce a special limited edition watch. They did the same for their 10th anniversary too, which culminated in the Watches of Switzerland Limited Edition Portuguese Chronograph. It was popular thanks to its unique chocolate brown dial, and it helped that it was exclusive to Watches of Switzerland with only 25 pieces produced.
They wanted something similar for their 20th anniversary, and they worked with IWC to create the model you see here. Recognizing the trend of vintage-inspired watches as well as the popularity of IWC’s Pilot’s watches in Australia, they decided to combine the two to create the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph watch.
The brown alligator strasps IWC fake Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph watch is based on the popular IWC Pilots Chronograph ref. 3777. Case dimensions are identical, so it comes in a 43mm stainless steel case that measures 15mm thick. Prominent pushers and crown help make operation easy. Water resistance is also unchanged at 60m.
What has changed, however, is the dial. In place of the white hands and markings on the ref. 3777, the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph has patina-colored hands and markers instead. Along with a vintage-looking brown Santoni leather strap, this gives the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph watch an aged look that so many watch lovers and collectors seem to like these days.
Otherwise, the layout and configuration haven’t changed. The main hour and minute hands are still centrally located, as is the chronograph seconds hand, and you still have the 30 and 12-hour chronograph registers at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively. At 9 o’clock, you still have the running seconds in white.
Inside, the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph is powered by the same IWC 79320 Caliber found in the ref. 3777. It is a robust, reliable self-winding chronograph movement that is based on the common Valjoux 7750. It beats at 4Hz and offers around 44 hours of power reserve.
To commemorate this special watch, the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph comes with a commemorative case back that shows the watch’s number in the limited edition series. The case back also has the Watches of Switzerland logo and a special design that celebrates its 20th anniversary.
These charming replica watches that I think a lot of IWC fans, especially those who are also fans of the current vintage-inspired watch trend, will enjoy. They haven’t messed about with the classic good looks of the ref. 3777 and whatever little changes there are have been tastefully implemented. The only problem, however, is that there are only going to be 50 of them.
Walk into the Rolex booth at Basel and you would be forgiven for thinking that everything is hunky dory with the world watch business. Everything about Rolex exudes quiet optimism and restrained confidence. Business for this behemoth of horology seems entirely in a state of normalcy. While outside waves of chaos and trepidation seemed to be permeating booths, meetings and journalism, things at Rolex seemed calm and confident.
And why shouldn’t they be. Few brands dominate every aspect of their industry quite like Rolex does. And there are few brands that, let us be frank here, are under less pressure to innovate than Rolex is. The brand could easily rest on its laurels, year after year, as model after model flies off the shelves. And yet Rolex innovates. Each year it makes small and large changes to its portfolio, enticing customers constantly.
This year the brand launched seven new models.
A handy reminder, pun intended, of Rolex’s obsessive approach to making ‘professional’ wristwatches. The Rolex Yacht-Master II copy watch for sale is targeted at sailors. Now this is not a clientele that is new to the world of watchmaking. Several brands make regatta watches. What makes Rolex’s approach interesting is the clever use of the Ring Command bezel system to set the timer along with pushers to synchronise and countdown the start of a yacht race. Not to forget, however, that inside the watch beats a world class calibre.
This year Rolex unveils three new variants of the great Cosmograph Daytona chronograph fake watches with self-winding movements. Each watch, brought up-to-date with the latest in Rolex tech, features an Oysterflex bracelet, and the 4130 calibre complete with column wheel and vertical clutch for precise operation.
The first Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller replica watches with black dials were released in 1967. And fifty years later Rolex launches a brand new iteration that incorporates all the latest in Rolex technology. Thus making it the most up-to-date version of arguably one of the greatest diver watches ever made. From the Cerachrom insert to the state-of-the-art 3235 movement, this watch has everything that makes it formidable in the sea and dependable outside it.
And we save the best for last. exquisite replica Rolex’s Cellini family stands apart from the signature Rolex collections for its singular, elegant design. And this year Rolex unveiled a new Cellini Moonphase. Moonphases are all the rage right now, but this is how you do it right. The Cellini’s versatile dial design easily incorporates a spectacular moonphase complication. The moon is made of a piece of meteorite. This is Rolex. They don’t take half-measures. A brilliant watch.
Two new variants in steel and gold, with slight upgrades for legibility, make this a hard to beat choice for the world travellers. Like the Yacht-Master II, this watch too uses the Ring Command bezel system to set date, home time and destination time. All of which is displayed with uncommon clarity.
Datejust 41 and Lady-Datejust 28
Ah yes. The classic Datejust fake watches. Is there a watch that is more instantly recognizable on the wrist? And this year Rolex presents variants in steel and steel-gold. Rest assured that everything else about the watch is as great as it has always been. A timeless classic. Now in steel. Also a subtle reminder of how a famously masculine watch brand also makes exquisite women’s watches.
The new IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser boutique replica watch is located on the ground floor of the Globus building at 48 Rue du Rhône. With 100 square metres of space, it has an attractive layout with sales and lounge areas on different levels. The interior features the typically elegant IWC design, with soft beige tones, dark wood accents, glass and natural stone. It offers enough room for an in-house watchmaker, who will be on hand to assist customers with any technical matters.
To mark the occasion of the opening, IWC is launching a special-edition timepiece that is limited to 50 copy watches with black dials. The Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition “Boutique Genève” (Ref. IW371221) takes up the tradition established by the first Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante, introduced by IWC in 1995. The double chronograph features a split-seconds hand that allows two separate times to be recorded simultaneously. This model features a stainless-steel case and feuille hands and appliquéd Arabic numerals that are both rose-gold-plated.

The IWC fake watches with brown crocodile straps are powered by the hand-wound 76240 calibre movement with a 44-hour power reserve. The words “Cé qu’è lainô”, the title of Geneva’s anthem from after the year 1602, are engraved on the back of the watch.
The watch is fitted with a brown alligator leather strap with a folding clasp and is now available exclusively at the new IWC Boutique Geneva.
