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!). 


Hands-On With Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT Men's Replica Watches

The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT Replica Watch is one of the new models that Omega presents at the Basel show.

Equipped with the Co-Axial calibre 8605/8615, the new timepiece is the first of Omega's proprietary movements to be equipped with a GMT complication. The mechanism is visible through the sapphire-crystal used for the caseback.

The 43 mm case of the Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT is available in red gold, stainless steel or in a red gold/stainless steel bicolor version. The replica watch is offered with a bracelet in the same metal as the replica watch case or with a black, brown or blue leather strap.

The dial is distinguished by the teak pattern associated with the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Replica collection. The vertical lines are reminiscent of the wooden decks on luxury boats. The applied indexes and the hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova which allows ease of reading in all light conditions. The GMT hand's red arrow makes it easy to distinguish the two time zones.

Thanks to the reduced friction of the Co-Axial escapement and the almost no need for lubrication, the Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT is delivered with a four-year warranty.

The GMT hand can also be used for compass orientation: when the replica watch is held parallel to the ground with its hour hand pointed in the direction of the sun, the GMT hand, when it is adjusted to the same time on the 24-hour GMT display, will indicate north in the northern hemisphere.

Richard Mille RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman Replica Ladies Watches

Though known for its super high-end, sporty-looking timepieces that are high-performance and technically-driven, luxury replica watch manufacturer Richard Mille has entered the haute joaillerie replica watchmaking space with the women’s RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman Replica. 10 versions of the RM 71-01 have been designed, limited to only five made of each design.

“We are known for our incredibly technical, high-performance replica watches that draw inspiration from the automotive and aeronautics industries, even though women’s replica watches have represented a considerable percentage of our sales for several years now,” stated Richard Mille. “That said, we needed a modern, creative and talented young woman to inject new energy into our status quo and take the women’s collection to new heights. It was Cécile Guenat, the daughter of my friend and business partner Dominique, who met this challenge by overcoming technical obstacles, freeing herself from consensus and establishing a unique and resolutely contemporary style.”

With a background in high-end jewelry, Cécile—now Ladies’ Collection Director—was inspired by a bevy of different artistic styles, including Art Deco, Bauhaus and even African. “My work is the fruit of very different influences, sometimes unexpected or improbable,” the young creator began. “I had an idea of what I wanted from the start and I designed a moodboard from my drawings and image searches, because anything that pops into my head can be of interest.” She also emphasized the skeleton movement in the case setting and engraving. With three years of development, her 10, innovative designs of course, incorporate the technical elements that Richard Mille has become so well-known for. It uses the first ever tourbillon movement crafted in-house—the Calibre CRMT1—as well as a new, slim, automatic mechanism that is both incredibly light in weight and high performance, combining diamonds, mother-of-pearl, black sapphires and onyx. Visually speaking, the 71-01 is an eye-catching stunner. And just as its name suggest, we’re certain that the 50 lucky buyers of the replica watch—will enjoy the good luck that each of these highly coveted, magical timepieces will bring.

Richard Mille RM53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough Replica Watch

Thus far at SIHH 2018, no other replica watch has given me more of a visceral response than the sexy and expensive new Richard Mille RM53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough replica watch. Ironically, neither the close-to-a-million-dollar price nor the wildly detailed and visible movement are responsible for the sense of “replica watch lust” I experienced. It also isn’t the RM53-01’s friendly color combination or modern, masculine look that are the main points of my focus. In truth, the RM53-01 is precisely the type of replica watch we expected from Richard Mille at the show.

More interesting for me is that I have no particular familiarity or interest in the sport of polo – for which the Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough was conceived to survive. This is actually the second (and more interesting) polo replica watch Richard Mille produced in collaboration with the popular South American polo player. Mac Donough’s first replica watch by Richard Mille was also designed to survive impacts common in the aggressive equestrian sport. The first replica watch was almost entirely covered in titanium with only small windows for the time and a view of the tourbillon. For the RM53-01 it was a specific point by Richard himself that the movement be very visible. So how else can you protect against impacts while also allowing one to enjoy the movement? Richard Mille attempts to effectively answer this question in two ways.

The first way is to incorporate a version of their movement suspension cable system. Introduced in an earlier Richard Mille replica watch for tennis player Rafael Nadal, the movement suspension system uses a series of two tiny metal cables on 10 pulleys and is held tight by four “suspensioners” to suspend the mostly titanium manually-wound tourbillon-based movement. Thus, cables absorb a lot of the shock that the replica watch might experience if knocked around. Rather than physical shock going into the movement and likely breaking it, the cable system absorbs a good deal of dangerous vibrations. Seeing how cool the tiny cables are to view is another pleasure unto itself. Second, for the first time Richard Mille has developed a replica watch with a laminated sapphire crystal. The concept is similar to how safety glass for cars works. There are two pieces of sapphire crystal, which are laminated together with a clear adhesive film. Just by looking at the RM53-01’s crystal you wouldn’t know anything is different about it – and yet, it’s perhaps one of the most durable, super expensive replica watches available.

Wearing the RM53-01 on your wrist confirms just how important weight (or the lack thereof) is for luxury timepieces today. Sure, the feeling of a heavy gold replica watch is still very much real, but when it comes to exotic sport replica watches consumers want performance. In many instances high performance sport replica watches benefit from being light. Not only are they hard to notice on your wrist, but for a demanding athlete, removing all extra weight can mean the difference between winning and losing. Richard Mille isn’t claiming record-setting lightness for the RM53-01 (they have other models for that), but I can tell you that despite the relatively large size of the replica watch, it has an extremely light touch and feels like almost nothing is on your wrist while wearing it. It isn’t hard to admire the replica watch off your wrist either. Richard Mille again uses TPT carbon for the case material, which is a layered form of carbon that is durable and really good looking. The RM53-01 case is 44.5mm wide, 49.94mm tall (lug-to-lug) and 16.15mm thick (water-resistant to 50m). The complicated case design mixed with the interesting strap system (with the effective but ironically non-luxury Velcro closure system) makes for an apt frame to show off the symmetrical and visually engaging in-house movement.

Powering the replica watch is a manually-wound tourbillon-based movement which offers just the time. It operates at 3Hz and has about two days of power reserve. As I said above, most of the movement bridges are in titanium, and the design of the movement is excellent because Richard Mille went out of their way to make it symmetrical, as well as a bastion of fine details for us horological enthusiasts out there. What sells the RM53-01 is its persistent following of Richard Mille’s core values that make modern luxury sports replica watches exciting and fresh. It is a very fun toy with a price that will leave most of us feeling as though no matter how good we have been, only very rich boys will get to sit down at Richard Mille’s table and share his creations.

A Complete Guidebook On Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox Men's Replica Watch

As one of the more identifiable models from the history of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the 1968 version is also one of the rarest. Less than 2,000 were produced in the original run although there have been multiple Memovox (sans Polaris) reissues over the years, most recently in 2016 with a boutique edition of 500 set within the Master Collection.

This year, however, marks the 50th anniversary of the very specific Memovox Polaris and Jaeger-LeCoultre Men's Replica chose to honor this golden jubilee with the launch of the new Polaris Collection based entirely off the original alarm replica watch’s design but extended into different arenas such as chronographs, worldtimers, and time-only models. 

This new Polaris Memovox (Jaeger-LeCoultre switched the Polaris identifier in front of Memovox in accordance with the collection’s name) functions similarly to the 1968 model. Three crowns offer control over the alarm function and time setting. The first crown allows you to wind the alarm function and then set the alarm and date when it’s pulled out, the middle crown doesn’t pull out and allows you to adjust the bidirectional inner rotating bezel, and the lower crown is the one that allows you to adjust the time.

With the crowns, it’s worth noting that despite the nautical provenance of the original Memovox Polaris, and the fact that it is rated for a water resistance of 200 meters, none of the crowns are actual screw-down crowns. This, and the fact that the replica watch features a bidirectional bezel, means that it is not ISO-compliant so it should never be used for any sort of scuba diving.

This is neither a good or a bad thing. Overall, the new Polaris Collection allows Jaeger-LeCoultre to embrace a sportier side that it has lacked over the past few years. With the focus on building out the Master line plus the dominating presence of the Reverso, there hasn’t been much room for the growth of the luxury sports segment within the Jaeger-LeCoultre catalog. In that regard, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Memovox Replica is not a dive replica watch but is a sports replica watch with a dive heritage that can be positioned at the head of the greater Polaris Collection.

The alarm rings once the hour hand passes it by, making it difficult to set to the exact minute. In this image, the alarm is set to ring a few minutes after 7:00.

When setting the alarm function, which is indicated by the arrow on the center dial, you must align the marker with wherever the hour hand will pass it by, a difficult task to do to the exact minute. After being fully wound and properly set, the alarm goes off for around 15 seconds, emitting a deep, guttural growl of a ring rather than the harsh, high-pitched, screeching buzz you might be used to if you’ve been around other alarm models. It’s a pleasant ringing that has a much fuller sound than that of your typical alarm clock. There was more than one time in the week that I wore the replica watch, that after forgetting I had set the alarm earlier in the day, I was awakened after dozing off on the couch by its persistent yet gentle, loud yet soft, alarm.

Another distinguishing trait of the Polaris Memovox is the distinctive dial architecture with its mix of various finishes across the three concentric circles. There’s a smooth opaline finish on the inner rotating bezel that is complemented by a grained finish where the applied Arabic numerals and trapezoidal indexes that are filled with a pool of “faux-patina,” vanilla-colored SuperLuminova are set, and a snailed finish across the minute-track. Finally, the inner circle with the alarm indicator features a sunray finish. This set of finishing is, as mentioned, directly inspired by the 1968 Memovox Polaris and is the dominating trend throughout the greater Polaris Collection, connecting the line of six timepieces together.

On the Wrist:Longines Legend Diver Black Men's Replica Watches

Longines presented a new version of its Longines Legend Diver Replica, a reissue of a 1960s diving replica watch from 1960. Part of the Heritage line, this new Legend Diver model combines the style codes and design elements typical of the era with a black PVD coating which gives the replica watch a new modern look.

The lines of the original have been preserved but the new replica watch is now equipped with updated technical characteristics.

The boxed glass is made of sapphire crystal and the two screw-in crowns and screw-down back guarantee a remarkable water resistance to 30 bar (around 300 metres / 1,000 feet).

The bidirectional internal turning diving bezel is activated and stopped by the crown located at 2 o’clock, allowing the wearer to determine the remaining dive time.

The indexes, numerals and hands, coated with Super-LumiNova, pop from the black lacquered dial for optimum legibility, which is further enhanced by the plain, clean typeface used for the numerals 6, 9 and 12.

The 42 mm steel case, whose screw-down back is decorated with an embossed illustration of a diver, houses an automatic mechanical movement that is exclusive to Longines, the Calibre L888.2 (ETA A31.L01) beating at 25,200 vibrations per hours with a power reserve of 64 hours.

A Milanese-style black rubber strap equipped with a folding titanium clasp treated with black PVD and an integrated diving extension complete this timepiece.

Let Us Review The TAG Heuer Autavia CBE2110 Men's Replica Watches

The relaunch of the TAG Heuer Autavia Replica has been much anticipated and it’s a welcome return. The prices on vintage Autavia’s have been increasing like crazy, meaning the new Autavia arrives at an interesting time.

There has been a lot of change over the last few years at TAG Heuer, changes for the better in my view. My prediction is that TAG Heuer within the next upcoming years will get the respect they deserve from the customers, the replica watches have already been elevated to the next level.

The Case

The Autavia case is made at TAG Heuer’s own Cortech factory in Cornol, with nothing to complain about regarding the finish. An all-polished case is expected and we recognise the design language from the original 60s/70s Autavia.

The case offers nothing new when it comes to the design compared to the original models except for the larger size of 42mm. Releasing a larger new version of a classic is always ammunition for the doubters, but I think the new size works great. I would of course prefer the case to be a little thinner but the thickness of 15.9mm doesn’t bother me.

The width of the bezel looks a little large in pictures, but looks good on the wrist. The bezel has 60 clicks and is therefore already prepared for the possibility of a diving bezel inlay with count-up or countdown markings.

Movement

The 2016 Autavia features the new in-house movement, the Calibre Heuer-02, which is an automatic column wheel chronograph movement with a vertical clutch, 12 hrs chronograph function, 75 hrs power reserve and beats at 28800 vph. Timekeeping specifications are not official during the review.

The chronograph function is precise and there is no visible vibration of the central chronograph hand when the chronograph is started or stopped. The rotor can make a loud winding sound sometimes when the rotor starts turning like crazy, I however find it charming, not annoying. The Calibre Heuer-02 is a modern movement and given the long-standing debate around the importance of in-house vs. third-party movements, I thought it would be interesting to follow the path of the development of this specific movement.

The earlier Calibre Heuer-01 movement (Calibre 1887) is based on the Seiko Chronograph 6S movement. There are a variety of views on which specific Seiko movement formed the basis for the Heuer-01/ Calibre 1887, but the most likely candidate for the base movement is the 6s78 movement used in the since long discontinued Credor chronograph GCBP997. The factory used by Seiko for outsourcing movements is the SII (Seiko Instruments Inc.) and their version of this movement is named SII TC78. Despite this family link, the Calibre Heuer-01 is however a significantly modified SII TC78.

Initially it’s a good idea to source and modify an existing movement since it costs significantly less than developing a new movement from scratch, but there are some restrictions, for example flexibility is limited on the final size, layout on the dial and the production process.

The chronograph layout (12-6-9) is the most evident restriction. Seiko has a layout which makes good sense, as you can see the “running seconds” even if the replica watch is partly hidden by the sleeve of your shirt. This layout is however not true to the heritage of Heuer and therefore was not the best choice for the new Autavia.

Caseback

I always prefer a solid caseback regardless of movement finish, but the caseback displays the movement nicely which some will appreciate.

Strap/bracelet The Autavia is available with a bracelet (for a slight premium), or with the 21mm leather with contrasting stitching that you see in this review. The strap is waxed on the sides and goes well with the replica watch but I would have preferred it to be tapered to 18mm instead of 20mm.

Take A Look At The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Men's Replica Watches

IWC has released the IWC Pilot’s replica watch Chronograph Online Boutique Edition. IWC began selling replica watches directly on their online store back in 2017, and this release is no doubt an attempt to draw traffic to their online store. Available exclusively through IWC's online store, the Pilot replica watch Chronograph is a clear descendant of IWC’s classic aviation replica watches.

The Pilot’s replica watch Chronograph features a steel case that clocks in at a diameter of 43mm and a height of 15.3mm. Since this is a pretty standard dimension across most pilot chronographs, I imagine it will wear quite well on the wrist. Beating inside the replica watch is the IWC Caliber 79230, an automatic chronograph movement based on the ETA 7750, with a 44 hour power reserve, 25 jewels, and a frequency of 28,800 bph. On the dial are 3 registers displaying the running seconds, elapsed minutes tracked by the chronograph, and elapsed hours tracked by the chronograph.

In addition, the movement provides the wearer with both the day and date. The sub-registers are displayed in the usual style found on replica watches powered by a 7750 based movement, and it works really well here. Some also might bemoan the use of the day-date function, but I really dig it here—something about it meshes nicely with the dial's aesthetic, and I greatly appreciate the functionality of the day-date complication. In classic IWC pilot replica watch fashion, the movement is encased in an iron cage to protect the movement from magnetization, and as a result, the caseback is solid. The replica watch is water resistant to 60 meters, and as is expected at this price point, has a sapphire crystal.

In my opinion, the dial of the Pilot’s replica watch Chronograph is really stunning. Based on the “Fliegerchronograph” that IWC produced over 20 years ago, the dial's clean design is very reminiscent of pure tool replica watches. The white markers provide a nice contrast with the black dial, and the hands and lume plots at 12, 3, 6, and 9 are painted with beige faux-patina style lume. Faux-patina lume can sometimes be overdone, but it works well with the vintage style of this design. The squared-off hour hand and slightly pointed minute hand are similar to those found on older IWC fliegers, like the Mark 11, which I think is a good choice for this replica watch. Additionally, the subdials have a nice subtle radial texturing that provides a nice visual element to break up an otherwise smooth dial design.

Packaged with the replica watch is its only strap: a green textile/NATO strap, and my feelings about this decision are a bit conflicted. The replica watch does look quite good on the strap in photos, and I’m sure the IWC NATO is high quality, but as someone who already owns a ton of NATO straps that I could easily put on any replica watch, I wish that IWC had chosen to include a nice leather strap as well. Finding a well-made leather strap that matches a specific replica watch can be difficult, while there are a variety of high quality NATO straps out there that individuals could source themselves. At this price point, IWC could have done a bit more in the strap department.

IWC has released the Pilot’s replica watch Chronograph on their online store, where it will exclusively remain until October of 2018. I think this is a clever way to increase IWC's online presence with people who were either previously unaware or simply didn't care. By releasing an enticing replica watch that isn’t just a simple limited edition, IWC has a good chance at attracting some new online customers. And as a Mark XVIII owner, I just love IWC's pilot replica watch designs. The clean dial design, classic hands, and vintage atmosphere of this replica watch check a lot of boxes for me, and I’m sure that IWC will attract a large audience with this one, both to their online store and when it eventually hits brick-and-mortar shops.

On the Wrist: Hublot Big Bang UNICO Red Magic Ceramic Men's Replica Watches

Red ceramic is here thanks to Hublot and its materials workshop. At Baselworld 2018 Swiss Hublot will debut the first red ceramic-cased replica watch in the reference 411.CF.8513.RX Hublot Big Bang UNICO Red Magic as a limited edition of 500 pieces. In all black and red, the Big Bang UNICO Red Magic will feature a red ceramic bezel and case. What's the big deal you ask? It is all in the color.

As a piece unique for the Only replica watch charity auction, Hublot did release a replica watch with a red ceramic bezel – that we believe was produced using the same process as the Hublot Big Bang UNICO Red Magic Replica. What's so special about red? It isn't red per se but rather that ceramic is a material that simply doesn't like to be made in all colors. Black and white ceramic in replica watches is no problem. Blue and brown ceramic tones have become increasingly popular. Red, however, has been a color that was simply too light to look good and in traditional ceramic case-baking processes, ends up mostly blotchy and discolored. What did Hublot do in order to make a red ceramic material? Experiment a lot it appears. Hublot men's replica has a materials lab in Switzerland where a variety of interesting stuff has come, such as Magic Gold (a gold alloy mixed with ceramic). Red Magic ceramic is said to be about 300 vickers harder than most standard zirconium dioxide ceramic materials and then there is that perfect, uniform, cherry red color. Many people are immediately thinking of Rolex right now, and the red & blue "Pepsi bezel" GMT-Master II replica watch. First of all, that bezel is half blue and half red, being overall much smaller in size. Also, the red color on the Rolex is nice, but darker in color than the bright Big Bang UNICO Red Magic. Even Rolex has issues producing a half-red ceramic bezel, which is why (for now) they only use it on one 18k white gold replica watch model.

Hublot says that their red-colored ceramic produced by Hublot Research & Development is patented and produced in-house. As I said, in addition to the bright red color, they claim that it is even more scratch-resistant than other ceramic materials. Hublot is a major fan of ceramic, having a larger percentage of its total production include ceramic parts even if it is just a bezel. It therefore makes sense that Hublot is pushing forward in developing new ways to render ceramic both increasingly fashionable and exciting as a luxury replica watch material.

Ceramic parts are first formed and then baked to harden. After they are baked they are machined to shape and then polished. One of the traditional problems with non-dark or non-pigment-free (white) ceramic is that the heat during the baking process ruins the pigments. Hublot claims that their patented process for making Red Magic ceramic uses a combination of both high-pressure and heat during the sintering process. More so, Hublot claims the process works for more colors than just red, so expect to possibly see a Big Bang Magic Blue, Magic Yellow, Magic Orange, and other colorful ceramic replica watch models in the near future.

The Hublot Big Bang UNICO Red Magic comes in a red ceramic case that is 45mm wide and 15.4mm thick with 100m of water resistance. The dial is given a black and red treatment with very legible matte red handset and hour markers. It's a rather masculine and aggressive design, but not without its elegance. Even though this a cool design, I think in the future Hublot can make a red ceramic replica watch with even more of the overall color palette being red. Attached to the case is a quick-removable black and red rubber strap.

Powering the Big Bang Red Magic is the Hublot UNICO caliber HUB 1242 automatic chronograph movement. It operates at 4Hz with 72 hours of power reserve and is increasingly known as a durable movement that also happens to look modern (yet very "horological"). In addition to red ceramic and black resin parts in the case, Hublot uses titanium for things like bezel screws and the strap deployant. I look forward to seeing the precise hue of Red Magic ceramic in person at Baselworld 2018.
