Talking about replica watches and inspiration can lead to some very interesting debates, and for good reason — especially in the diving watch category. Of course, the early diving watches were not “inspired” by anything. A diving watch is a very useful tool. Over time, though, the variety of diving watches shifted from practical to popular everyday wearers, and design inspiration soon began to come into play. Today, we take a look at luxury watches inspired by the ocean and dig into the story behind each one and their relationship to the distant blue.
As talked above, there is no reason to go into a Rolex Submariner history lesson here; however the Rolex Deepsea D-Blue review has a very special connection to our world’s deepest waters.
The origins of this piece come from Rolex’s involvement in James Cameron’s deep dive into the Mariana Trench. Though not limited in production, the piece is commemorative of the 2012 dive, and features a gradient blue to black dial that mimics the loss of light as one descends into the ocean’s depths. What’s more, the green chosen for the DEEPSEA text on its dial is matched to the color of Cameron’s Deepsea Challenger Submarine that took a prototype Rolex watch all the way down into the trench affixed to one of its robotic arms.
The legacy of Jacques-Yves Cousteau is unparalleled in the world of underwater exploration, and a few years ago, IWC decided to become a partner of the Cousteau Society – a non-profit organization looking to continue the initiatives set out by Jacques-Yves several decades prior. Since the beginning of the partnership, IWC replica has included a special limited edition Aquatimer model in its collection, with a portion of the revenue from each watch going to IWC.
Progress on Calypso has been slow-going, and a fire on the ship while docked in Turkey two years ago has slowed things again. Naturally, there are rumors swirling that a redesign of the IWC Aquatimer line across the board will appear in conjunction with the vessel’s unveiling.
Although the roots of the Yacht-Master II relate to activities on the water’s surface rather than deep below, its unique functionality is perfectly suited to this category. Nevertheless, the Rolex Yacht-Master II is what is often referred to as yachting timer – a countdown chronograph that can be used to properly measure the start time of a regatta, also famous as a sailing race.
Arguably the most sophisticated watch in the current collection of fake Rolex, Yacht-master II USES an interesting combination of bezel position, crown position, and putt action to set its countdown time between 1 and 10 minutes, return trip timepiece function of the preset time with an activation of the reduced putt type. Although many yachtsman II wearers are unlikely to use this highly specific feature for practical purposes, but in real life applications, it’s not shy to be able to count down like this.

If you look at the difference between a dial and a frame, the 2019 version of the replica Tudor Black Bay Bronze is the watch, with a SLATE gray dial. The new color is subtle and executed in a complex way, making a dramatic improvement in the now-stopped khaki/brown version.
As can see, the Black Bay Bronze or BBB to its friends is a bronze-cased version of fake Tudor’s flagship Black Bay. Specifically an alloy of bronze that’s high in aluminium, meaning you won’t get the kind of crazy green patina that was super popular several years ago. As you’d expect, it’s an in-house movement, the MT5601. It’s still also the biggest of the Black Bays, rocking in at 43mm across, so if you’re slight of wrist, consider yourself warned. It comes on either a leather or fabric strap, though it’s worth noting that these days it’s an either/or situation, not both.
But, when it comes to the dial of the replica rolex, in this case, SLATE grey is actually an accurate term. The dial looks cool and inviting — like a SLATE floor on a hot day. This is also a subtle gradient effect, with darker edges and a lighter center. This, combined with gold-plated text and application hours/Numbers, really makes the dial hard to pop up in a way that no other black bay does. It is legible, vibrant and fresh. It also has a dark gray border. Can you tell me I like it?
Every year before the Basel meeting, I wonder if black bay has lost momentum or if there is some way to surprise. I saw it again, and my faith was renewed. Good job, Tudors.
The introduction of more two-tone models moves on, but different from past years, there’s a lack of clarity and direction to these latest releases, which makes us think that the replica Tudor is beginning to lose the thread of what the Black Bay line was originally intended to be. Fairly, some of their new releases are still really amazing, but no matter if they really belong in the Black Bay lineup is surely a question at least.
The first particular play in the Tudor releases is this new spin on the Black Bay Chrono. While the initial version retained a much more diver-ish vibe to it on account of its steel bezel – though it already ditched the rotating bezel for a fixed tachymeter scale – this new model is actually a play off of the ‘John Player Special’ version of the reference 6241 Rolex Daytona.
It’s funny to see that after all these years – when the fake Rolex was so intent on keeping Tudor’s designs separate from their own – that between this and last year’s Black Bay GMT, there seems to be some steering towards turning into the “poor man’s Rolex” once again. Don’t make me wrong, the build quality here is awesome, and you’re getting some killer value. Its chronograph is based on the column wheel chronograph caliber from Breitling, with a regulating organ of Tudor’s own design. The riveted bracelet is quite well executed, and it’s a mighty amazing watch in the metal; however Tudor isn’t a brand name that people associate with motorsports, and just throwing a motorsport themed watch into the equation with no justification behind it comes across a little contrived.
This is a largely debated topic right now, as many people have called into question the origins of the Tudor prototype upon which the P01 is based, and whether or not it ever really existed. Per Tudor HQ, a very small number of these replica watches were built, and based on the patent information they have for the bezel locking mechanism, as well as the original prototype that the brand has on display right now, I’d tend to trust them.
Where the watch immediately took flack online was on account of its general case shape and crown position. Those long links and bezel locking mechanism give the piece a special look, and the best parallel I can really draw is similarity between it and the Omega Proplof. It’s out of the ordinary, it’s chunky, it’s bold, and some enthusiasts will love it.
While I’ll give Tudor credit that the champagne dial they’ve added to this line is a very good looking one, this move with the BB 41, 36, and 32, but I simply do not understand. Moving the piece to two-tone steel and gold with a 5-link bracelet inches it towards dress watch territory, yet they just released a massive collection of dress watches that now feels like its sales will be cannibalized by the Black Bay.
Of course, these pieces are a bit expensive by comparison, and the aesthetic of the snowflake hands and diver-ish dial does make them more casual than their competitors.
Rolex watches are always the most popular model among all the world-braded watches. As we have talked so much about the luxury fake rolex Submariners, Daytonas, Datejusts, and Explorers, but these four watches from the Rolex catalog easily justify use of the word. You see them here and there, and even though you don’t really know your watches it’s simple to pin them down as Rolex offerings. Particular complications, gorgeous design, and of course outstanding finishing, they are all part of the equation, so don’t let their level of popularity fool you. These famous fake watches are anything but catalog filler, and in some rare cases they even act as a gateway to new collectors who want to own the Rolex reputation without choosing a watch that they’re so common seeing on the wrists of others. Whatever the driving forces behind the buying decision, here are some of our best-loving Rolexes out there.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller is about as special as it gets in the Rolex catalog, as it is effectively the most complex watch Rolex currently has in production. When it first released it was only available in valuable metals, but in 2017 the brand added an assortment of Rolesor gold and steel variants to the collection, making the piece more utility and budget friendly overall.. This combination is a very practical one, especially for the frequent traveler, but what makes the replica Rolex Sky-Dweller that much more interesting is the mechanism Rolex created to assist in setting the watch. With the crown unscrewed and pulled out until its single setting position, the fluted bezel of the Sky Dweller can be rotated to three different positions. This sounds a bit complicated, but after very brief interaction with the replica watch you’ll soon find that it is incredibly clever, user-friendly and most importantly special Rolex watch.
The words big, bold, and unabashed are seldom useful descriptors of a watch from Rolex. Its 44mm case diameter and general proportions are close in line with the Sea-Dweller in many respects, whereas its dial and unique complication are unlike much of anything ever seen from Rolex, or any other watch manufacturers for that matter. That’s not to say that there aren’t other Regatta timers on the market out there, but the function of the replica Yacht-Master is a little different on account of being able to program its countdown for anything between 10 and 1 minutes, thought a clever setting system using both its crown and bezel.
The pool of fake rolex on the market is huge to say the least, and most people forget that Rolex has been providing a healthy range of options in the category for years. This Cellini Date is a prime example of a particular Rolex watch that safely rivals many comparable offerings from Jaeger LeCoultre, Zenith, and others. Cased in white gold and measuring a contemporary yet not oversized 39mm across, this Cellini Date features a stunning black dial and matching black alligator strap. Besides, the bezel has a thin polished edge followed by a thin fluted section that adds a layer of depth and detail that pairs perfectly with the aforementioned dial. Rather than a conventional date window and magnifier as seen throughout the majority of the Rolex line, the Cellini uses a pointer date subdial at three o’clock that’s slightly oversized. This ensures the most suitable level of legibility, better enhanced by its crisp white numerals. The Cellini in all its forms remains the ultimate underdog in the category of the Rolexes found on this list.
The word of “Daytona” first appeared on the dial of a fake Rolex “Cosmograph” chronograph in 1965, which has become one of the most coveted and legendary sports watches ever produced. The name came from the equally fabled Daytona racetrack, which like the watch itself, evolved over the years. Originally opened as the Daytona Beach Road Course way back in 1902, it became world most popular as the site where 15 world land speed records were set.
On February 19, 1928 Campbell broke a new world record of 206.956 mph in his Blue Bird at Daytona, the event which finally led to Rolex using the name on its dials nearly 40 years later, at which point the iconic Swiss fake watch brand’s ties to the world of racing at Daytona and elsewhere were already the stuff of legend. These days Rolex sponsors the ultimate endurance race, officially known as the Rolex 24 at Daytona (since 1991), at the track, which is now called the Daytona International Speedway.
Paul Newman, an early adopter of Rolex’s Daytona model, perhaps pulled off the ultimate feat when he raced a Ferrari Daytona in the 1977 24 Hours of Daytona Race while wearing a replica Rolex Daytona. And while we may never that feat we came pretty close recently during the Ferrari World Championship Finals. For the prestigious event at the Daytona International Speedway, Ferrari corse cliente clients from all over the world convene at the celebrated track to compete with some of the fastest cars on the planet. These include retired F1 cars, FXX and FXXK track cars based on the famed Ferrari Enzo, 599XX and 458 Challenge Evo race cars, 488 GTBs, and even a couple LaFerraris for good measure.
This year’s event brought the F1 Clienti cars to Daytona for the first time, and Ferrari had its star F1 drivers Kimi R?ikk?nen and Sebastian Vettel along. Obviously, we had to wear a Rolex Daytona for the situation, though selecting the exact model was no easy task. Finally given that these were for the most part modern Ferraris we decided on a reference from the current era, though beyond the basic stainless steel that has long been the replica watch given to winning Rolex 24 drivers. Hence we selected the rare Ref. 116509 in 18k white gold, with its Ferrari red markings indicating that it’s no ordinary Daytona.
At 40mm the watch is somewhat subtle by current standards, though the gold is both heavier and softer than steel. Something of a cognoscenti’s Daytona, it’s not as instantly recognizable as the classic modern steel models, mainly because the sub-dials are the same matte black as the main dial. We’d venture to say that while few may recognize it as the coveted white gold model, it’s the few who matter. This cheap watch is also distinguished by its silver Arabic numerals which give it a rakish, appropriately racy feel.
You’re unlikely to spot someone else wearing this luxury watch, which is of course a large part of the appeal. The replica watch was the subject of many sidelong and envious glances, its stealthy appearance lending it a darker edge; the car at Daytona it resembled most was injured Ferrari racing legend Michael Schumacher’s own menacing FXX in triple black with red accents.
Initially released in white gold with a blue dial, what makes this new version of the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time really attractive is the way it was mysterious, and the sister piece that accompanies it. It’s hard to believe, but the replica Patek Philippe eventually joined the modern world of social media in the week, and their first big announcement through the channel was this new release, alongside a “ladies version” measuring 37.5mm in diameter, which has been dubbed the fake model. Both sizes are powered by the same caliber, and, quite frankly, both are within a conservative size range that could be worn by either gender without the faintest question.
Firstly, when images were released of the new Calatrava Pilot I wasn’t quite sold. There was quite a bit of debate out there when the initial Calatrava Pilot surfaced, and what business Patek Philippe really had in getting into this segment at all. The brand did produce some pilot’s watches back in the day, but nothing on the scale seen by the likes of replica Zenith, IWC, and even Breguet. Setting the lineage debate aside for a moment and looking only at product execution, the brand has done an excellent job with the new release. The combination of its bright and reflective sunbrushed brown dial and warm pink gold case works very nicely in person, standing out as a much better brown/gold combo than we saw from the replica Rolex with the Everose GMT that was just released.
I’ll be confused, I really wasn’t expecting to like the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time on the wrist, but having strapped it on for a while during my press appointment, the new piece turned into a pleasant surprise. At 42mm across and a reasonable 10.78mm thick, it’s surely a bit chunky compared to much in the fake Patek catalogue, but for a pilot-style piece it’s still on the more modestly sized end of the spectrum. People love drawing parallels between this and the Zenith Type 20 models; however, other than its numerals and hands, these amazing watches are miles apart. My biggest stumbling block with every Type 20 In my experience is how flatly and awkwardly they wear on a smaller wrist — a total non-issue with the Calatrava Pilot. That said, the pieces are also miles apart in terms of finishing, therefore only a fool would ever consider cross-shopping the two.
Seiko has released a pair of non-limited Prospex divers which provide a look based on their vintage replica watch. Working from a basic idea similar to last year’s SBP051/53, these new Prospex models are meant to split the difference between the loosely-similar and limited edition re-issue piece, and the general look of a replica Seiko dive watch.
“The 1968 Automatic Diver’s Modern Re-interpretation SPB077 and SPB079” is the full name of the Seiko watch, seeing as coffee breaks are only so long, let’s go with SPB077/79. The SPB077 has a black bezel and a steel bracelet, while the SPB079 has a steely blue bezel and comes on a silicone strap. Aside from these differences, the two versions are the same. At 44mm wide, 13.1mm thick, and 51mm lug to lug, the SPB077/79 wears not unlike a longer version of the much loved Prospex SRP777. The cases are made of stainless steel and feature screw-down casebacks, instead of the monoblock construction of the SLA025 reissue.
Tucked safely behind a flat and anti-reflective sapphire crystal, the dial design is likely the most considerable departure from the original model. While the basic layout for the markers and the date at three o’clock are almost the same, the SPB077/79 both do without the original’s gilt treatment and make use of a flat black dial. Maybe most noticeable, like last year’s 62MAS-inspired SPB051/53, the SPB077/79 use a distinctive handset with a huge arrow-style (mouse pointer?) hour hand, and a sword-style minute hand. The seconds hand design is different from the reference material, with the lume on the counterbalance similar to what you’d see on the SRP77X “Turtle” divers.
Being a Prospex, we wouldn’t expect to find a top-end or high-beat movement inside; the SPB077/79 uses Seiko’s famous and popular 6R15 automatic movement. Common to this price point, the 6R15 is a 3 Hz movement with a power reserve of some 50 hours, providing hacking, hand-winding, and in this application, magnetic protection to 4800 A/m. For those just getting into the fake Seiko, the 6R15 is a step up over both the entry-level and non-handwound 7S26 found in models like the SKX007, and the newer 4R36 found in the SRP77X line and some other models.
At 44mm wide, this is not a small watch and, different form the SRP777, the SPB077/79 does not benefit from a shorter-than-normal lug to lug measurement in proportion to its case width. Checked on the rubber band, the fake SPB079 wears well and doesn’t feel especially thick if you’re used to wearing a Seiko diver. Like the SPB051/053 before it, the hour hand will possibly be either a love-or-hate design element for many interested parties. Perfect made, dive-ready, and carrying a blend of Seiko both old and new, the 1968 Automatic Diver’s Modern Re-interpretation SPB077 and SPB079 replicas are refreshing and outstanding takes on Seiko’s continuing legacy of dive watch design.
The year of 1953 was a significant year for fake Rolex and two of its most iconic tool watches. That year, the brand introduced both the Submariner and the Explorer. With each model, Rolex focused on both function and form. However, each replica watch has evolved in its own special way over the years.
When the replica Rolex Explorer and Submariner launched in 1953, their capabilities were immediately put to the test. Rolex sponsored an expedition to Mount Everest, sending Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay to the summit with an Oyster Perpetual. Although the watch didn’t bear the Explorer name at the time, it was one of the first replica watches to reach Everest’s peak and served as inspiration for the Explorer collection. Rolex also sent the Submariner to the deepest depths of the ocean together with Auguste Piccard. He attached the watch to his submarine’s hull and descended 3100 meters into the sea. When he resurfaced, the Submariner was still in good condition.
The late 1960’s and early 1970’s marked a period of change for both of the models, particularly the Explorer. In the late 1960’s, Rolex introduced the Submariner model, which solidified the model as much more than a diver’s tool with the addition of a date function and Cyclops magnifier. The early 1970’s brought about a new era for the Explorer. In 1971, Rolex unveiled the first Explorer II with this model. This was a bold move. At the very first beginning, many fans of the model felt it was an extreme departure from the original and missed the sportier look and feel of the Explorer.
The Explorer and Submariner soon secured their places as superior tool watches. However, much of their charm is also in their design. The Explorer underwent several design iterations during its first decade, but, in 1963, Rolex released the Ref. 1016. This notable variation of the Explorer remained in production for an impressive 26 years. The Submariner has kept greatly unchanged since its initial release. However, like the Explorer, the Submariner got one of its trademark aesthetic updates several years after it first launched.
In the 1970’s, Steve McQueen had been a fan of the Submariner fake watch. Then after that, McQueen helped to popularize the polarizing Explorer II. The well-known actor, race car driver, and avid watch aficionado was rumored to have worn the watch, giving the model its nickname as the Steve McQueen Explorer.
Nowadays, the Explorer II and the Submariner kept on to be two of Rolex’s most instantly recognizable models. Both models combine the durability and functionality of a tool watch with the timeless design Rolex is known for, making them seamlessly transition from an adventure to a night out on the town. Each has been time-tested through strenuous conditions and everyday wear. When a replica watch is backed by the iconic Rolex name, it’s difficult to make a choice.
We all opt for our things about which to be unreasonably doctrinaire in this world. Some people are intolerant of date windows, but other Tag Heuer Replica are intolerant of anything over 38mm in diameter and some people are intolerant of non-in-house movements, and on and on. I’ve always been intolerant of so-called “modded watches,” and I have no idea of the reason. Maybe it’s the closet museum conservator in me, but I hate the idea of taking a finished replica watch as the starting point for important cosmetic modifications. I would never say anything about their replica watches, but that doesn’t keep me from privately deploring it when it happens.
In October of last year we heard some funny news, which was that Bamford had become the authorized customization partner of replica TAG Heuer. This came just shortly after Zenith announced that Bamford was its official customization partner as well, in June.
However, the relationship seems to make the entire thing more plausible and we had an opportunity to look at one of the first collaboration models from the fake TAG Heuer and Bamford, which is the TAG Heuer Bamford Monaco.
Surprisingly, up close and personal, I liked the watch at once. From a design standpoint it really came together for me – now, this kind of approach to watch design is always going to be polarizing and I’m sure this take on a Monaco will rub some of us the wrong way, but for lack of a better word, I thought it looked amazing. I think the size might have something to do with it; this is a 39mm wristwatch and it seems to wear its carbon case very naturally. In terms of dial layout, position of the pushers and crown, and so on, it’s a typical Monaco, solidly rooted in the original caliber 11 model from 1969.
I think part of the reason this take on the Monaco seems to work so well is that the original design is not particularly conservative either – the Monaco has always been a slightly aggressive-feeling, very design-forward watch. Seeing it in a carbon case, and with the vivid “aquablue” and black dial, and matching date display, doesn’t feel like something grafted on; on the contrary, it feels like a natural extension of the real design.
It’s quite comfortable to wear and again, it was a very pleasant surprise to see how instantly at home on the wrist it seemed.
