Louis Westphalen – Omega Railmaster 60th Anniversary
You would be greatly surprised when you wear some replica watch, and this is exactly what the Omega Railmaster 60th Anniversary made to me. Actually, it was a very positive surprise. To be honest, as I accepted this watch as my own at once.(at least, in my mind) The thin profile, the 38mm diameter, and the balanced dial instantly did the trick for me, while the another two straps and the magnetic resistance were among the sweet bonus points I found out after that. It’s a vintage watch, only with fashion. No objections there.
Stephen Pulvirent – Tudor Black Bay 41
When Tudor gets it right, that’s exactly what it is. The Black Bay 41 is essentially just a larger version of last year’s Black Bay 36, which is why it’s so great. This is a slim watch with a hyper-legible dial that looks good on a strap or a bracelet. It’s reasonably priced and has just the correct amount of vintage nostalgia baked in. I’m possibly still a 36 kind of guy more than a 41 kind of guy at the end of the day, but for many people this will be the only watch they’ll ever require.
Ben Clymer – Fake Rolex Datejust 41mm In Steel
It’s the basic stuff that’s best sometimes. The new 41mm stainless steel Datejust might not have been the most head-turning watch at Baselworld, but it’s easily one of the best. You can really make it your own too, with different dial colors, and it would be either a flat or fluted bezel, either a Jubilee or Oyster bracelet. Apart from that, inside is the caliber 3235, which is a chronometer-certified movement that runs to -2/+2 seconds per day and has a 70-hour power reserve. This is the best of modern fake Rolex tech in one of the most classic Rolex packages.
