Summer is enjoyable. A proper holiday needs a specific holiday watch, certainly, and summer trips to the beach put their own requests on wristwatches. Some things are givens – real water resistance, probably a screw-down crown, and something that’s not going to come out of the surf looking like you put it through a blender. Whether you’re hitting the Cap d’Antibes or the Jersey Shore, here are some popular replica watches to enjoy out in the sunshine.
The replica Omega’s revamp of its Seamaster Professional Diver made a big splash in Basel for a reason. It’s a serious upgrade to a sports watch that already ranked among the greatest value propositions in modern replica watches.
Good-looking, colorful, and perfect for a summer full of adventures, there is something undeniably fun-loving about a Doxa Sub. You don’t have to be a Cousteau, or even spend your summer break strapped to a SCUBA tank, to appreciate the brightly contrasting dial or the easy-wearing appeal of the SUB300 50th Anniversary’s thin 42 mm steel case. Especially in the silver dial Searambler version, this vintage-inspired fake watch is essentially a summer vacation for your wrist and from an evening on the patio to 20 minutes at 110 feet, it won’t miss a beat. Paired with a tropic rubber or an orange Isofrane strap, this limited edition diver will keep you thinking of summer long after you’ve run out of vacation hours.
Travel and gold are the two important elements in summer. And while I don’t personally have the gold travel fake watch (not that I can afford one), I still dream of owning one someday. This year’s fake Rolex GMT-Master II in Everose is my pick here for many reasons. First thing first, the GMT function allows you to easily track what time it is back home and what time it is at your beach of choice (preferably on the Med somewhere). Second though, it’s rose gold and everyone knows how well that pairs with a nice tan. In addition, you can swim with this watch. What else could one ask for in a summer watch?
This one was a no-brainer for me. What was the original cool-as-can-be beach watch? It must be the amazing replica Rolex Submariner. And what modern watch is closest to those original 1950s divers? The new Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight. Luckily they’ll be hitting retailers sometime in the next few weeks, so as you pull out your trunks you should definitely make sure you at least get an opportunity to try one of these on. The fake watch is a near perfect size, wears slim on the wrist, and has matte finishes that aren’t going to look too attractive in the sunshine.
I have to say that 2018 is undoubtedly the year of Paul Newman’s Daytona, if 2016 was the year of the Rolex Daytona Ceramic. By now you’ve likely heard that The Wall Street Journal announced back in June 2017 that not only has the unicorn of the replica rolex watches been located, but it also went up for auction.
However, most people may fondly remember Paul Newman as a great actor, or an avid racecar driver, or a generous philanthropist, watch enthusiasts credit him as the man that catapulted one of the worst selling Rolex watches to grail worthy status.
A Daytona “Paul Newman” fake watch is one that sports what Rolex called an “exotic dial,” featuring three colors and Art Deco details. Too exotic for the era, these Daytona models gathered dust on boutique shelves around the world with not much interest from buyers at all. However, thanks to a now-famous photo of Paul Newman wearing his Daytona replica model on a black leather fat strap, this failed start quickly changed course. Italian watch dealers took note of the celebrity connection and started referring to the exotic dial Daytona watches as the Daytona “Paul Newman” and the rest is watch-collecting history.
It is that exact fake Rolex Daytona “Paul Newman” that is going up for auction in less than a week. The location of the watch—and that it even still existed—was unknown until the recent announcement of the sale. During a particular preview last week in Los Angeles of the upcoming lots, I had the immense privilege of seeing the watch in the metal. But even better, I was also given the chance to try it on!
As a replica vintage Rolex watch collector, I refer to myself, with a keen interest in Daytona Paul Newman models, and it’s difficult to put into words how it felt to have Paul Newman’s “Paul Newman” on my own wrist. The steel Oyster case with the duo of pump pushers flanking the crown, the tachymeter-engraved steel bezel, the creamy dial with the trio of black registers marked by those distinct numerals, the red outer minute track, the secret message on the case-back, the popular coronet sitting on top of the ROLEX COSMOGRAPH name, the prominent red “DAYTONA” arched above the bottom sub-dial—it was all just perfect.
The watch’s provenance, significance in the market, and surprisingly great condition left me pretty much speechless.
While, o label today’s market for vintage Paul Newman Daytona chronographs as strong does not do it justice. The buzz around these special watches is near-hysteria. And to be frankly, after the sale of Paul Newman’s “Paul Newman,” interest is just going to skyrocket even more. The news of the sale result will go well beyond the best replica watches collecting community to the public at large and those who aren’t well versed in mechanical watches will start investigating how an old stainless steel manual mechanical fake watch sold for the millions it did.
Fast forward more than 2,500 years, and bronze can be seen walking in lock step with the modern Panerai luxury watch image. Now a refined companion to collectors who prefer large, expressive, and butch sports models, Panerai harnesses a proprietary CuSn8 alloy of copper and tin to innovate a dynamic metal that evolves with time. More than a factory finish, the weathered accents of the PAM 507 case are designed to grow in scope and complexity over time.
At SIHH 2013, Panerai raised the curtain on a new bronze age: the Luminor Submersible 1950 PAM 507. More than a re-issue of the already legendary PAM 382, the new Bronzo combines additional mechanical refinements with a new dial, new straps, and a unique weathered bronze treatment. The metal alone is worth the price of admission to the limited edition of 1,000 individually-numbered pieces. Thus frenzied was the public reaction to that stunning marriage of bronze to Panerai’s 47mm “1950″ case that many in the collector community compared it to the energy that seized the first “Paneristi” brand devotees in the early 2000s. While the Bronze Age spans more Greek history than Roman, Paneristi will forgive the watchmaker’s historical liberties in conceiving a watch that is drop-dead gorgeous. Officine Panerai is a brand with a unique grasp on company heritage, and Panerai’s history is intertwined with seafaring and the nautical landscape. Naturally, Panerai wasn’t prepared to let the magic die with the 2011 special edition model year. Originally a supplier of combat dive replica watches for pioneering Special Forces during the 1930s, Panerai reaches even deeper into Mediterranean nautical lore for the inspiration behind the Bronzo.
Its weathered details, bold lines, and warm golden glow evoke the war galleys that battled Persian empires for dominance of what Panerai’s 20th century Italian commandos will come to call the “Mare Nostrum”: “our sea.” With a depth rating of 300 meters, a unidirectional diver’s bezel, and the iconic Device Protecting the Crown locking lever, this watch is ready for water sports, the beach, the pool, or your morning shower. Hey, every adventure has to start somewhere…
As in the case of bronze fittings on luxury yachts and beachfront homes, Panerai’s bronze draws its enduring strength from the metal’s ability to shield itself from decay with a dynamic patina. Tones of green, violet, copper, argent, and earth slowly join the golden hue of the original bronze until each Panerai PAM 507 becomes a “piece unique” in the most literal sense. In the field, the Officine Panerai PAM 507 can tackle any assignment a conventional Luminor Submersible might face. With a quick-set hour hand for easy transitions between time zones, the Bronzo can go anywhere in more senses than one; a unique mechanism allows the hand to be moved forward or back independently of the minute hand, and it can even drive the date backward without hazard to the best replica watches.
It seems Panerai has decided to channel its inner hipster this year to innovate the very slick looking new limited edition Panerai Pocket Watch 3 Days. Purchased in November of 2014 and complete with filled warranty card from an authorized dealer, this Bronzo contains everything – including full Panerai warranty – that will accompany it from an authorized dealer or factory boutique.
Available from watchuwant.com and virtually unobtainable anywhere else, this Luminor Submersible 1950 PAM 507 “Bronzo” is a modern classic in the post-Vendome epoch of Panerai history. It includes all Officine Panerai factory boxes, manuals, documents of provenance, the original second accessory strap, and the Panerai strap tool.
The early self-winding watches are some of the lesser-discussed vintage replica watches from Rolex’s long and illustrious history, affectionately nicknamed “Bubble Backs” by members of the collecting world. Even though they were not specifically designed for some demanding sport or an inhospitable environment, the fake Rolex Bubble Back stands for the basic, self-winding template that all modern Rolex watches would come to follow.
Rolex’s Bubble Back replica watches get their nickname from their extremely rounded, protruding case-backs. Although highly interesting from a design standpoint, the Bubble Back design was actually born out of necessity as an efficient means to house Rolex’s thicker, self-winding movements.
It was during the 1930s that Rolex first got down to fitting their watches with automatic movements, rather than the manually wound calibers that had been used in their watches. The addition of the oscillation weight meaningfully increased the overall thickness of the movement, and required additional clearance for the rotor to move freely inside the case. Instead of making the entire case of the fake watch larger, Rolex made up its mind to allow the case-back to protrude in a curved, bubble-shaped fashion.
The replica Rolex Bubble Back watches are rather antiquated in design according to the standard nowadays. Case diameters are relatively small and typically hover around 30 mm to 32 mm for the classic men’s models. Besides, owing to their domed acrylic crystals and convex, protruding case-backs, Bubble Back watches are disproportionally thick in an almost egg-like fashion.
Now it seems that all Rolex watches are equipped with automatic-winding calibers. Although later refinements to case and movement designs eliminated the need for a curved, protruding case-back, Bubble Back watches are emblematic of a time when nearly all watches required manual winding, and automatic movements were first beginning to emerge from the different timepiece manufacturers.
While the Bubble Back may not receive nearly as much attention or acclaim as other vintage Rolex watches, these early self-winding timepieces hold arguably more importance to the overall evolution and success of the Rolex brand than any other wristwatch that the company has ever put forward. Almost every replica watches rolex now manufactures has the word “Perpetual” printed on the surface of its dial, and it was these early Bubble Back watches that were the first to receive Rolex’s inaugural, self-winding movements.
Replica Hublot’s newest Manufacture Piece is bang on trend with a fusion of a double-axis tourbillon and a curved, sapphire crystal aperture with several sides. The design remit for any Hublot Manufacture Piece is simple: to develop and then optimally showcase a new movement function. In this case, it would be inextricably linked to function, which explains why the case has a rather unusual shape – its silhouette not dissimilar to that of a human skull. It is in the jaws of this imaginary skull that fake Hublot’s latest mechanical innovation can be found: a bi-axial tourbillon rotating around its first axis in one minute and its second axis in 30 seconds, visible beneath an over-sized, curved sapphire crystal aperture.
This replica is the anodyne name for this new in-house calibre, which comprises 356 components (including no fewer than 43 rubies) and offers a power reserve of 120 hours (5 days). Hublot’s first-ever tourbillon with more than one axis of rotation is not the only unique feature, however. The skeletonised design of the movement is carried forward to the time indications on the open-worked off-center dial at 2 o’clock, as well as the distinctive two-level date display around half of this dial, which involves a white disc sliding beneath the cut-out numerals to indicate the correct date. The power reserve indicator is also open-worked, resembling a petrol gauge whose markers seem to float above the movement. A bright red badge right next to it bears the stencilled text “5 DAYS POWER RESERVE” in block capitals as a not-so-subtle indication of the gauge’s purpose and a reminder which you could wear this watch for a full working week before you need to wind it up again.
Aside from the brand-new movement and elongated case, the watch has all the familiar traits of a Hublot Big Bang watch, from the sandwich construction with metal and carbon fibre to the signature screws on the bezel and strap attachments and the rubber strap. But the replica is a limited edition of just 70 replica watches, 50 with a titanium case and 20 in King Gold. In both cases the metal has a combination of polished and satin-finished surfaces and a large segment at 6 o’clock on the case back bearing the limited-edition inscription, which prevents the tourbillon being viewed from all sides.
Details about the modern 6-digit Air-King watch screams “Rolex sports watch”, different from the typical references from decades ago which were celebrated for their understated dials and dress watch designs. The Air-King model as many collectors may know it was stopped in 2014, with the newer 6-digit watch debuting shortly after in 2016. The differences between the old and new Air-King replica watches are obvious. The original Air-King featured a more luxury 34mm Oyster case and a dial commonly set with simple applied indices and hands, while the newer reference boasts a larger 40mm Oyster case, a dial topped with luminous hour markers and hands and a safer folding Oysterlock clasp.
While the Air-King fake watch seems like a totally different watch, it stays true to its humble beginnings as a pilot’s watch. The case is still equipped with a screw-down crown that can bear depths of up to 330 feet as well as higher altitudes. This newer reference, however, takes good use of a Twinlock screw-down crown for extra waterproofness, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and 904L stainless steel. While the “Air-King” logo has been moved lower on the dial, avid Rolex collectors will be pleased that it is still present on the dial, just like the original Air-King.
A next-generation calibre 3131 perpetual movement beats within the case offering an accuracy of -2/+2 seconds a day. Newer Rolex movements often utilize Rolex’s patented shock-resistant technology via the addition of a Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring. The movement also boasts a 48-hour power reserve and COSC rating.
The most obvious change made to the new Rolex Air-King watch is the updated black dial. In lieu of the traditional index hour markers, the dial features polished steel Arabic markers at the 3, 6, and 9 positions and 5-minute graduations at the remaining hour markers. Similar to other Rolex sports references, a luminous triangle sits at the 12-hour marker. Chromalight lume emits a distinct blue glow and fills the 5-minute hour markers and hands for a clear reading in light or dark environments. A yellow crown and green accents including the Rolex logo and a green seconds hand, seal the new Air-King’s fate as a Rolex sports watch.
Each Rolex sports watch is developed with a specific application in mind, whether it is a diver’s replica watch, a pilot’s watch, or a tool watch for spelunkers, one thing’s for sure, Rolex has a timepiece to meet the requirements of the wearer no matter what their profession or desire may be. The Rolex Air-King watch is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a fake Rolex with an impressive history and application at an entry to mid-level price range.

Omega released a new professional diver’s fake watch collection named the Seamaster Planet Ocean a decade ago. Although modern, such as design, materials, and mechanics, the Omega Planet Ocean watches draw inspiration from the brand’s rich legacy of diving watches. Today, the Planet Ocean is Omega’s signature pro dive watch with lots of variations given. Join us as we take a look at a particular practical model, the Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT.
A full steel model, this Planet Ocean GMT sports a stainless steel 43.5mm case and matching steel bracelet. As a typical dive watch, this Planet Ocean includes all the elements essential for an underwater tool watch. There’s the water resistance to 2,000 feet, the helium escape valve to prevent damage during decompression periods, and a great luminescent dial for legibility under water.
However, different from most dive replica watches, this Planet Ocean GMT has a direct rotating bezel, but rather a bi-directional one due to its GMT functionality. A particular meaningful feature for travelers, the GMT permits the wearer to keep track of two time zones simultaneously thanks to the extra 24-hour hand and a bi-directional rotating bezel marked to 24 hours. Besides, the black ceramic bezel is not only attractive to look at but the tough top-tech material is also highly resistant to scratching. Adding to the practicality of the replica watch is the discreet date window at 3 o’clock.
An extremely appealing design touch on the Planet Ocean is the use of Omega’s iconic double broad arrow hands where both the hour and minute hands include large arrow tips. Protecting the face of the watch is the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal treated with anti-reflective coating on both sides.
If you flip the watch around, you’ll have a big view of the handsomely decorated Omega Co-Axial Caliber 8605 through the sapphire exhibition case-back. The in-house automatic movement drives the time, date, and GMT function and offers a generous 60 hours of power reserve.
Caliber 8605 comes equipped with the replica Omega‘s popular co-axial escapement technology, which boasts less friction than the ubiquitous lever escapement, therefore, requires less servicing in general. What’s more, like all modern Omega movements, the Caliber 8605 is, of course, chronometer-certified.
Whether used underwater as a diving watch, or worn as a traveling companion to keep track of two time zones, or simply have on as a luxury sports watch, the Planet Ocean GMT gives a lot of practicality encased in a fantastic modern Omega watch.
It is obvious that not every replica watch with a water resistance rating is a diver’s fake watch. Watches that are not diver’s watches are actually regulated by a completely separate ISO, which is International Standard ISO 22810 Horology-Water Resistant Watches. The latest revision was such a source of pride to the Organization that it actually induced them to make a feeble pun. Though much online discussion of water resistance seems to focus on ISO 6425, ISO 22810 actually covers a rather greater range of watches and is arguably more relevant to the general consumer, than the specialist requirements of the dive watch ISO.
There are some quite significant differences between the two ISOs. Because its scope is so broad, ISO 22810 defines no minimum standard for water resistance; instead, it presents testing criteria for the widest possible practical range for non-dive watches, and also makes it the manufacturer’s duty for stating “warranty conditions and precautions to be taken to ensure the quality of the watch over an extended period of time.” Rather than requiring any tests, it provides testing procedures, and it’s the manufacturer’s responsibility to define at the production stage “if he wishes to be able to guarantee that they satisfy the requirements of the International Standard.”
According to the Organization, the newly revised ISO is intended to ensure that if, for example, a fake watch has a 30 meters water resistance, the watch is then suitable for any and all “aquatic activities” of any kind, up to 30 meters’ depth – irrespective of the manufacturer. In practice this should mean that while your 50 meter water resistant watch isn’t a dive watch per se, that if you do dive with it to, say, 20 meters, it shouldn’t spring a leak – on the assumption that its date of manufacture is after the ISO went into effect, absolutely.
To begin with, there must be no condensation on the inside of the glass, per the condensation test, after the overpressure test. The immersion test is also less strict than for dive watches: 10cm depth, for a minimum of one hour. The thermal shock test is similar but not identical: 40ºC for five minutes, 20ºC for five minutes, and 40ºC for five minutes, to be followed by the condensation test. The five newton pressure-on-the-crown test is for five rather than ten minutes; there is no requirement for salt-water corrosion resistance, nor is there any for shock resistance, or resistance to magnetism. So clearly, a diver’s watch must be much tougher than a non-diver’s watch just based on requirements. If a manufacturer wishes that the replica watches can be tested using air overpressure rather than actual immersion, which avoids the risk of possible destructive damage to the tested watch.
From an owner’s point of view, probably the most significant difference is this: if you buy an ISO 6425 compliant diver’s watch, you know watch has been tested for overpressure resistance; you also know that the model is sample tested during production to ensure compliance with a host of other requirements. For “water resistant” watches, what’s more, no test frequency stipulations are made at all – this is left up to the manufacturer’s discretion and one assumes that sample testing would be the rule in such a case.
Blue-colored watches have always been a great choice in the watch market. More vibrant than black or gray but still considered a neutral shade, blue watches give a great combination of appealing color and classic design style. Today, we are going to explore some blue replica watches at distinguished price points.
With a very nice cheap price, we love this vintage replica Rolex Oysterdate model as a blue watch option. The 34mm Oyster case houses a rich blue dial, which contrasts perfectly with the watch’s stainless steel build. While the dial keeps nice and simple with minimal stick indexes accented by small lume plots, there is a date window at 3 o’clock. The case, dial, and smooth bezel, coupled with the classic Jubilee bracelet come together for an attractive everyday Rolex watch.
With a slightly bigger budget, but one that is still very nice, we turn to Rolex’s sister (brother?) brand for a sportier alternative. The Tudor Pelagos fake watch wears its blue shade proudly from its bright ceramic bezel to its striking blue dial. The white markings on the diver’s bezel and the luminescent snowflake hands and bold hour markers pop against the blue background.
The Tudor Pelagos diving watch comes with a robust 42mm titanium and steel case along with an ultra-light titanium bracelet—cleverly outfitted with an extension system to ensure the watch will fit over a wetsuit if need be. Therefore, if you want even more blue on your wrist, this unique model comes with an extra blue rubber strap.
So now, we will start with that Z-Blue dial, which is one of the coolest blue shades you’ll ever find on a luxury watch. More turquoise than navy, this colorful background sets the stage for the just-as-colorful orange lightning bolt second hand. Finally, just because “too much” is not part of the contemporary Milgauss Z-Blue vocab, protecting the dial is a green sapphire crystal, which just takes the style of this blue replica Rolex watch to another level.
A bold budget deserves a bold watch, so dive into the two-tone Rolex Submariner watch. The two-tone yellow gold and stainless steel construction is a Rolex replica, while few can deny the attractiveness of the iconic Submariner diver’s watch design. The Submariner was the last non-ceramic bezel two-tone Sub option since all current Submariner models now sport Cerachrom bezels. With its traditional aluminum bezel, slimmer lugs, and less bulky case, many cherish the now discontinued fake watch for its archetypal Submariner style.
There’s a blue watch out there for you regardless of your price point. Whether you prefer sporty or classic, vintage or new, automatic or manual, there’s a wide choice of blue watches for every budget.
