Replica Watches: Swiss Fake Breitling, Omega, AP, Tag Heuer Watches

With the visage of Transformer Optimus Prime or Bumblebee on the dial, it is arguably easy to scoff at the themes presented here which are then combined with a tourbillon. Then again, these aren't 0,000 watches or anything close to that. No, and brands like Memorigin are making products aimed at aging Generation Y and Millennials who are either finally making disposable income or have some family money to spend and want products that comment on the things that inspire them. It might be silly to see Batman or other comic book and movie characters on a watch dial... but is it any more silly in concept than watches inspired by someone's racing, flying, or diving fantasies?

Speaking of other watch brands, the look of the darker toned Masterpiece Gravity watch reminds me of the design language of Greubel Forsey, but with less extremism.

2014 seems to be the year of a surprisingly large number of re-released and redesigned versions of historically important watches, and Omega certainly has its share of that by debuting the Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition (yes, that), a limited edition of 1969 pieces, dedicated to the Omega Speedmaster Professional chronograph which Buzz Aldrin had strapped around his spacesuit at the time he first descended onto the Moon.

As much of a cliché as it is, I will go out on a limb and speak for every one of us for a moment and point out that we all too often forget to step back, enjoy the moment, or just simply stop caring so much for a second. To me, there is something special to this 6.5 millimeter wide tiny orb that represents our enormous planet, the scene for all that is good and bad in our lives. In short, it is the way it shows this incomprehensibly large and complex place in such an abstract way that makes me willingly stop for a second and somehow reconsider the weight and importance of things. But maybe that is just me, and luckily there is a more functional aspect to this little globe as well.

Panerai Luminor Submersible Left-Handed Titanio PAM569 Watch Hands-On Hands-On

For many years, since I was a teenager, when strolling at malls, I've always make a point of stopping by the watches section of jewelries in order to admire fine timepieces. Over time, I've come to know the characteristic style of a handful of brands and track some fads as they came and went. All along, I just considered myself a watch aficionado much like car aficionados, who admire certain cars from afar, either because they cannot afford them or have other priorities, but never really meaning to buy the objects of their affection.

Sablier even has a US patent on the application of a concave curved sapphire crystal in a watch- a patent they happen to be really proud of. Thus, the case has a bowl-style look to it with a uniquely shaped sapphire crystal. This offers a combined look of something traditional with something new. There is something slightly Bauhaus about the design as well, which adds an interesting twist to the overall aesthetic.

The result is a truly fantastic Japanese-made mechanical tourbillon movement inside of the Hajime Asaoka Project T timepiece. The the new tools used not only allow for the cutting of very small parts, but also of parts that look great afterwards, which can be properly finished by Hajime Asoka. In my opinion, there is a beautiful mixture here between modern industrial design and traditional watchmaking.

Where the original Speedmaster Mark II featured Omega's 861 hand wound mechanical movement, the new Mark II is powered by Omega's 3330 Co-Axial automatic chronograph movement. The column wheel-equipped 3330 is similar to the Longines L688 but boasts Omega's Co-Axial escapement as well as their Si14 silicon balance spring. This automatic chronograph movement places the 30-minute scale at three, the 12-hour scale and date at six and the running seconds at nine.

Baselworld 2014 marks the fifth anniversary of aBlogtoWatch visiting the massive watch trade show event and at this point, our March/April pilgrimage to the third most populated city in Switzerland (not actually saying much) is met with gracious welcome by many of the brands who produce the best watches in the world. Baselworld is the larger of the annual watch trade shows around the world. While SIHH in January (in Geneva) is smaller, it is also an important event where a different list of important brands display their newest watch and jewelry creations.

At 39mm wide, I feel that the Cellini case combines grace and modern proportions in a satisfying way that feels neither too large or too small. Unlike the wider lugs on most Oyster Professional watches such as the Submariner, the lugs on the Cellini case taper more allowing for a more diminutive fit on the wrist. It feels like just a few years ago virtually all Rolex watches came exclusively on a metal bracelet. Now, with pieces like the Rolex Cellini we are becoming aware of a greater focus on adding straps to Rolex wearing experience.

Customers interested in a Big Bang Atomic D-38 watch will need to sign a series of legal disclosures including prohibitions from reselling the watch for restricted use as well as holding Hublot free from all manners of liability. Further, the watch is actually classified as nuclear waste material for legal purposes and the buyer agrees to handle it with due care according to relevant laws and regulations. Hublot admits that it was a legal and logistical headache not only to produce the watch, but also to consider selling it. Though in the end they feel that the hoops they will need customers to jump through in order to purchase the timepiece is just another variety of the luxury buying experience.

Omega Seamaster and Seamaster Planet Ocean watches get a fair amount of attention at aBlogtoWatch for good reason, and today we are going to look at the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Co-Axial GMT in detail. So why all the love? First of all, we are serious dive watch guys even though not all of us actually dive. Such is the power of the high-end sport watch and the allure of “desk diving.” Omega has evolved a lot over the last decade but is thankfully strongest where it counts when producing refined tool watches with a lifestyle twist. When the Planet Ocean versions of the classic Seamaster were originally released in 2005, they were touted as a more durable, high-end range of divers meant to compete with timepieces such as the Rolex Submariner- but without fitting into the same exact mold.

On the dial side of Christopher Ward C65 Classic, we see a new color the Trident lineup hasn't had before (optic white), along with a familiar hue (matte black). Since they've moved things into a dressier direction, the circle-and-bar indices of the C60 have been traded out for narrower, raised, bar indices. Tucked under that dial is a shift in movement as well. It's still Swiss, but they've moved away from ETA and have instead opted for a SW200-1. Still a capable movement, and likely reflective of the tightening ETA supplies more than anything else.

Nevertheless, despite being fully Japanese, the design is much more restrained than previous sporty Signature watches, which is a step in the right direction. Seiko has long since learned about design restraint in most of its Grand Seiko watches, but all Japanese watch makers are known for their tendency to cram in as many design details as possible in a single product, especially when it comes to sport watches.
