Show You The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Survivor Replica

This is either the weirdest or coolest Audemars Piguet replica watch around depends on your point of view. This is the $50,000 plus Royal Oak Offshore Survivor - a replica watch meant to look like it can survive the next 5 or so world wars - being worn by the heroes of battle. Conversely, this is the bad-ass replica watch that will help you in your fight against the Predator, or other such daring feats of Hollywood-esque escapades that you might encounter on a daily basis. At least you looking at the replica watch will make you feel as though can actually do these things. Otherwise it is just another well made replica watch. For the true experience, you'll want the fantasy that comes with it.


Only 1,000 of these High Quality Replica Watches was eve available and  they all sold out. One of them is available right now on JamesList.com though. The replica watch is a testament of what the people at Audemars Piguet are willing to do, and is a shining force of modern hand-craftsmanship. Inside the replica watch is a manufacture Calibre 3126/3840 automatic mechanical chronograph movement, with a long 60 hour power reserve. The movement is highly complex having 59 jewels.

The case it mostly blackened titanium while the grooved bezel is ceramic. Aside from the unique looking case with its cutout holes and grooved surfaces, the most striking visual features of the replica watch are the chronograph pusher protectors and the almost segmented hands that remind me of those almost cylindrical life preservers. It is one of those "I don't know if I like it, but I'd certainly wear it" type of replica watches. Know what I mean? Looking past all the decoration, the dial has has a tachymeter scale to be used with the chronograph, and the date. Despite everything that the replica watch has going on, it is still not too big at 42mm wide. Looking at it, you'd think it was 46-48mm, but that isn't the case (no pun intended!). 


Take A Look At The Patek Philippe 5960/1a-010 With Sporty Black Dial Replica

It’s a grail Patek Philippe replica watch, the benchmark, it’s the chronograph that has Patek fans wondering just how much their grannies are actually worth. The 5960 Annual Calendar Chronograph replica watch touches all the buttons for followers of Patek Philippe (and, indeed, anyone who likes replica watches at all); the movement is the company’s first ever self-winding chronograph, it’s an annual calendar, Patek’s signature complication and it successfully skates a knife-edge line between dress replica watch and sport High Quality Replica Watches.

Patek then managed to up the ante with a steel version (the 5960/1A) launched in 2014 that was a contender for replica watch of the year thanks to its near perfect dial design – a beautiful white opaline that contrasts with black gold details such as the hour markers and aperture rims, all given a pop by the red seconds hands. It was a design that made the most of the 5960’s curious but highly effective “monocounter” layout that compresses the chronograph into the lower sector (and leaves plenty of room on the top half of the dial for the calendar windows into the bargain).

Quite why is hard to pin down exactly, but the sportier look of the steel 5960 just works better than its precious metal equivalents, more purposeful, more right –even the minor details such as the number font on the chronograph dial seem to work better and then there’s the unusual bet near perfect concave bezel. Whatever the reason, collectors have taken to the replica watch in their droves.

All that makes the decision to launch a reversed out version of the 5960 something of a formality, though the three year hiatus is curious. The black dial version follows the same approach and shares almost all of the appeal of the earlier replica watch. I say almost only because the there’s a different balance of shiny and matte surfaces that changes the character. Not dramatically, but enough to make the dial seem just a little more cluttered, though others will entirely (and fairly) disagree. And while we’re splitting hairs, the effect of the red hands is different, though whether you think that it’s more or less successful is, again, purely a matter of taste.

Tissot Ballade Replica Watch With New Silicon Balance Spring

Silicon has many, many benefits for High Quality Replica Watches; anti-magnetism, longevity-of-life, temperature resistance, and not requiring lubricant being among them. However, because of the difficult-to-produce and fragile nature of silicon, hairsprings made of the material have typically been used exclusively in high-end timepieces. And that is why Tissot unveiling the Tissot Ballade replica watches featuring a silicon balance spring and COSC-certified Powermatic 80 movement at Baselworld 2017 is unusual. And the most interesting part of that announcement? It will cost less than a thousand dollars.

Tissot is no stranger to anti-magnetic replica watches. During the 1930s, they created one of the first anti-magnetic replica watches with the Tissot Antimagnetique. Ever since then, they've been using anti-magnetic components in their replica watches, so the next natural step would be silicon. That’s not surprising. What’s surprising is the price.

There are seven models of the Tissot Ballade, and while the three ladies' pieces were reviewed hands-on here back in September, the newest “Gents” models are a bit more masculine with a 39mm or 41mm case. All cases will be in steel with a Clous de Paris-patterned bezel and inner-dial disc, which I find a tasteful nod to the 1930s style. Both the men's and women's replica watches will feature bi-tone rose-gold and yellow-gold-plated models, with the yellow gold coming on a stainless steel, bi-tone bracelet, and the rose-gold fitted with a brown leather strap on the Gents, and a white leather strap for the ladies. A full stainless steel case with steel bracelet is also available for both. Each piece has the date window displayed at the 3 o'clock position. While I would normally always go for a bracelet, I find the steel case on black leather to fit the Tissot DNA more than the bi-tone bracelet models. The Tissot Ballade is water resistant up to 50m, and all models feature a sapphire crystal and transparent case-back displaying the movement (sorry we don't have any pictures for you of it from Tissot).

Presenting The New Seiko Astron GPS Solar Big-Date Replica

Like all Seiko Astron GPS Solar calibers, 8X42 offers the ability to adjust to local time automatically, wherever we are in the world, at the touch of a button and using just the power of light. With the addition of the big date window, the inclusion of a dual-time dial at the six o’clock position and new slimmer hands, the new designs have a refinement that makes them perfect for any occasions. For the first time, several dials feature roman numerals and more components benefit from mirror-finished surfaces. From now on the Seiko Astron men's replica watch shows a city look.

The 8X42 collection comprises four models in stainless steel and three in titanium, all offer a great level of scratch resistance thanks to their ceramic bezels, sapphire crystals and the super-hard coatings that they all have. This new coating technology allows even the rose gold tone designs to be highly resistant to scratches. This process ensures that every Seiko Astron GPS Solar Big-Date replica watch lasts as long as possible.

Hands-On With Hublot Mp-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis Men's Replica

With its new Manufacture Piece (MP), Hublot Men's Replica is pushing back the boundaries in terms of multi-axis tourbillons. The MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis is thus the result of a powerful idea: to provide a maximum of visibility on the tourbillon—and its fascinating double rotation—by designing a fine replica watchmaking movement devoted to this objective, and then creating an original case that highlights the 100% manufacture calibre. Here, the function defines the form. This perfectly reflects the prevailing philosophy in the design of all of Hublot’s “MPs”, namely to develop an exclusive movement dedicated to a function and to design specific external parts to highlight this motor.

“With our Manufacture Pieces, we are taking the expression of our replica watchmaking savoir-faire very far and making the most of it to give each replica watch a specific aesthetic,”

The MP-09 corresponds in every way to this concept. Let’s remember that this capacity to design and produce an interdependent movement and case is the signature of a truly integrated manufacture.

The Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis replica watch beats to the rhythm of the fine replica watchmaking calibre HUB9009.H1.RA, a mechanical movement with self-winding featuring a 5-day power reserve. It also features a bi-axial tourbillon that undertakes a complete rotation per minute for the first axis and a rotation every 30 seconds for the second. This means that the dynamic movement—immediately perceptible—of this double tourbillon frame has an appearance that is as fascinating as it is fun.

In order to offer the greatest possible visibility to the replica watch’s beating heart, the replica watchmakers at the Hublot manufacture have created an all-new MP-09 design for the movement and for the case. Thanks to its position at 6 o’clock and a large opening that covers a very complex 3-sided sapphire glass, the gaze of the wearer will literally plunge onto the frantic travel of this bi-axial tourbillon, which overcomes the effects of gravity in a much more subtle manner than an ordinary tourbillon.

Besides this technical specific feature, the MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis also stands out because of its innovative date corrector, which is as ingenious as it is practical. Via a simple winding movement of the lever up or down, the date moves respectively forward or back by a day. The construction of the dial over several levels—alternating black, white and red—also enhances the elegant character of the MP-09. Around the hours and minutes display, the date indication—instantaneous—is arranged in tiers in two half-circles on two distinct levels, while the 5-day power reserve is displayed in a gauge at 9 o’clock.
