New Luxury TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Fake Watches

1:1 US TAG Heuer replica watches revives an icon, inviting wearers to go even further beyond the edge and into the deep with fresh additions to the Aquaracer Professional 300 family with 3 colourways, including the return of the Night Diver.

Commentary

This new launch follows the Aquaracer Professional 300 series released during Watches and Wonders Geneva in April, and TAG Heuer adds three new Swiss replica watches to the family, including an new iteration of the iconic, all-black, lume-dialled Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver.

Our initial reaction to the new releases were very positive, especially to the Night Diver model, with its full lume dial, which looks white in day light, but completely illuminates in the dark. The usual qualities associated with Swiss made fake TAG Heuer watches, especially the Aquaracer series is ever present. This is a good thing, because the build quality is excellent, and the replica watches with Swiss movements are robust, and equal to any task at hand as diver fake watches for sale, or a tool watch. The construction is always on point, and very well executed. We also liked the touch of using two different lume colours to differentiate the hour hand from the minute hand – making it easier to identify, especially in the dark, murky depths that the AAA replica watches can be taken to, given its 300m water resistance rating. The black DLC coated case is very sleek and adds a character to the Night Diver. But all three are handsome cheap fake watches.

Also released in April, best replica TAG Heuer watches also introduced a highly collectible limited-edition version of the Aquaracer Professional 300 at launch to both complement the core collection and salute the design’s wonderful heritage. It’s called the Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844, and, as the name suggests, it picks up on the story of the fabled Ref. 844 divers’ perfect replica watches introduced in 1978. Only 844 examples of the Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844 will be made and launched in September 2021.

New: TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Fake Watches

Retail price in Singapore is SGD 4,700 for the Night Diver and SGD 3,850 for the other two models. Price includes GST. Prices in other territories are in the specifications section below.

Top TAG Heuer replica watches enthusiasts will recognise the name “Night Diver”, which was first introduced in the mid-1980s. Loved by active, style-conscious high quality fake watches buyers who push their limits, exploring nature and going beyond the edge, it became one of the most celebrated sports wholesale copy watches of its era.

Today’s online AAA fake Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 collection watches picks up this story. TAG Heuer’s design, engineering and heritage teams worked together to deliver a faithful update to a much-loved replica watches for men, retaining and improving signature details such as the famous 12-sided bezel and the dial’s horizontal engraved lines to produce a refined, highly versatile modern classic.

Introducing a trio of new Aquaracer Professional 300 models

Today’s Aquaracer Professional 300 drop adds three models to the eight announced in April, taking the collection to 11 references. All three new models are non-limited and go into the core collection, each with a 43 mm stainless steel case and rubber strap equipped with best quality replica TAG Heuer watches’ innovative adjustable folding clasp.

The new black and blue versions pick up on the bracelet models introduced at Watches and Wonders: both are colour-themed with matching black or blue dials, ceramic bezel inserts and rubber straps.

The standout model of the release is the black DLC-coated Night Diver, joining the Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844 as the collection’s hero pieces. Its stainless-steel case, bezel, crown, caseback and clasp are all coated in matt black diamond-like carbon, known as DLC, a high- performance, hard-wearing finish designed for use in extreme conditions. The bezel insert is highly resistant black ceramic.

The Night Diver’s other signature feature is its fully luminescent dial, which is coated in green Super- LumiNova® to deliver exceptional glow-in-the-dark performance. To ensure ultimate legibility in extreme low-light conditions, the 1:1 top super clone watches’ minute and central seconds hands are filled with blue lume to contrast with the green of the dial. The hour hand and octagonal hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock are filled with green lume, and the remaining octagonal hour markers are all edged with black lacquer. The triangle on the unidirectional rotating bezel at 12, which is crucial to accurately and safely measure dive times, is also filled with striking blue lume to match the blue of the minute and central seconds hands.

The detailing doesn’t stop there. As with the eight pieces in the launch collection, the three new references pick up on the six signature features that have defined AAA perfect replica TAG Heuer dive watches since 1983: a unidirectional rotating bezel, a screw-down crown, water resistance to at least 200 metres, luminous markings, a scratch-resistant crystal and a double safety clasp. These real-world functions became the model’s design pillars and have been reassuring underwater explorers for almost four decades.

The form carries a number of further details that enhance its luxury feel and performance. The 12 sides of the bezel are all faceted for grip, the crown is protected to prevent accidental damage and there’s a magnifying glass over the date, which is integrated into the underside of the sapphire crystal, making it smooth to the touch.

All this is set against the backdrop of the Aquaracer’s dial with its trademark horizontally engraved lines. These have also been refined for the new generation of fake watches shop wholesale and are now set slightly further apart than in previous Aquaracer iterations, giving the cheap Swiss replica watches their elegant, sophisticated look.

As with the launch collection, the three new Swiss made top replica Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 reference watches are powered by TAG Heuer’s Calibre 5 automatic movement. They all have solid casebacks stamped with the famous scaphander diving suit, complete with a 12-sided faceplate. All Aquaracer Professional 300 models are water-resistant to 300 metres (30 bar, 1,000 feet).

Each of the new Aquaracer Professional 300 reference knockoff watches comes with a beautifully engineered integrated rubber strap equipped with perfect AAA TAG Heuer fake watches newly developed adjustable clasp system.

The fine-tuning system developed by luxury TAG Heuer replica watches’ engineers means this adjustment can be made to extremely small tolerances. This is done by pinching and sliding the button on the side of the clasp. The clasp also features double safety push-buttons that prevent it from being unlocked by accident.

These straps will be cut to length as part of a fitting process at top wholesale fake TAG Heuer watches boutique or by an authorised dealer. The wearer will then have the freedom to adjust their strap to accommodate a wetsuit, or simply to reflect changes in ambient conditions that make the wrist expand or contract.

Best Quality Replica Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI 35th Anniversary For Sale

I don’t feel it really needs too much explaining about the Swiss replica watches with panda dials. A white (or perhaps off-white) dial with black subdials. It’s quite an obvious homage to the most famous of all panda bears, the giant panda. Over the years, this dial setup has become iconic and is a timeless classic. If you think of any of the top brands in the industry, they’re likely to have at least a couple of panda dialed fake watches online in their archives.


The contrast of the black subdials on the white dial of the perfect replica watches offers incredible legibility. Indeed from my research, the earliest iteration of the panda dial I can find came in the form of the cheap fake Breitling Superocean Ref. 807. Although technically not a true panda dial and more of a reverse panda dial, the wholesale copy Breitling Superocean 807 was a dive watch and, as such, designed to be legible underwater. Hence, the contrast factor is so important. Over the next five to ten years, the industry started seeing more and more panda and reverse panda dials from best super clone Breitling, Rolex, and Tag.

Me? I love the look of the panda dial. Especially the classic panda dial rather than the reverse version. Those black subdials on a nice white or silver dial really add a touch of class to the AAA quality replica watches. As such, I thought it’d be nice to perhaps compile a list of my favorite panda dials of all time. I rather like writing these articles because it’s always interesting to hear what you guys would put in your “Top 5” lists. Make sure to let me know in the comments!!
I have to start with a Speedy, really, don’t I. After having spent the last couple of weeks with one of RJ’s Omega Speedmasters replica for men on my wrist, I’ve really been bitten by the bug. 1:1 fake Omega is no stranger to a panda dial and has released a few different variations over the years. Still, my favorite is the Apollo XI 35th Anniversary, released in 2004. I have a fantastic high quality replica Omega #SpeedyTuesday poster in my home office. It has 62 different Swiss made copy Omega Speedmaster models on it, in order of release. I love looking at it, but my eyes are often drawn to this model. It has such a clean and classy dial, and it watches like this that really make it clear why panda dials became so goddamn popular.

Released as a limited edition of 3,500 pieces in 2004, the gorgeous panda dial isn’t what makes the Swiss movement replica Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI 35th Anniversary so special either, even if it certainly helps! The attraction, for me, is that this top Swiss super clone Omega was only the first widely available panda dialed Speedmaster Omega ever released. Admittedly, cheap replica Omega made 300 similar watches back in 2003 for a Japanese department store called Mitsukoshi. Still, the online copy Omega Apollo XI 35th Anniversary was the first time this dial combination was available worldwide.

1970s Cheap Replica TAG Heuer Carrera Ref. 2447N ‘Second Execution’

If you’re a replica watch collector who lives by the age-old adage, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” then perhaps the cheap fake TAG Heuer Carrera ref. 2447N will catch your eye. With a case and dial design so strong and iconic that its DNA has carried over to Swiss made copy TAG Heuer’s contemporary collection, as well as a plethora of recent re-editions, this early 1970s example of the best 1:1 fake TAG Heuer Carrera ref. 2447N “Second Execution” with a black dial would be the perfect watch for getting back to basics.


With a contrast-filled dial accented with white paint and no tachymeter in sight, it’s no secret that legibility is the magic word here, both in the AAA quality replica TAG Heuer Carrera’s conception and its enduring popularity.

The sub-dials and tension ring with one-fifth second markings do so much of the talking here – and with a chronograph, isn’t that exactly what you want?
The classically proportioned 36mm case of luxury replica watches seen on today’s example is simply something you don’t come across too often these days, plus it fits like a dream on both larger and smaller wrists, alike. Under the hood of the Swiss made replica watches is the famed manual-wind Valjoux 72 chronograph movement, Heuer-signed and all. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

We Support The Pink Dial Project Of Replica Watches

A few months ago, Wei Koh from Revolution contacted us, and a number of other media titles, to unfold his plan for The Pink Dial Project Replica Watches Online and asked to become a partner. I don’t have to tell you how awful breast cancer is, what it does to the victim and their families. It is horror. And everyone here has a few examples of this disease in their own circle of family and friends.

With The Pink Dial project, we — and the lion’s share is done by Revolution and The Rake — would like to raise awareness, but also funds for Breast Cancer treatment and research. A letter went out to all our favorite replica watch brands out there, to see if they would be willing and able to support The Pink Dial project with exactly that: pink dials fake watches for sale. Pink is the color that symbolizes the fight against breast cancer. It is worn on ribbons, garments to show our solidarity in this battle against this disease especially in October which is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Pink Dial Project
The high-end fake watch can be any model from the brand’s collection, but with a pink dial (or elements on the dial). However, brands can go as wild as they want, as long if it is a Pink Dial prototype (a one-off), to be auctioned to raise funds.
Brands that already participating in the Pink Dial project are Bamford, Bvlgari, Baltic, Chopard, copy IWC, Max Büsser, Montblanc, Oris, replica Panerai, Piaget, RADO, Roger Dubuis, Sinn, TAG Heuer, and Zenith. There are still a few brands in the pipeline and we will keep you updated accordingly.
Below, an overview of the luxury replica watches that will be part of the Pink Dial project.

Thinking Big With The Cheap Replica IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43 For Men

Growing up in the Midwest, I’ve seen my fair share of ammo cases. But nothing prepared me for the monstrous presentation box for my demonstration replica watches. This thing was about as impressive as a P-51 Mustang flying overhead at the Oshkosh Air Show. Inside the case was a blue-dialed cheap fake IWC with a choice of blue rubber strap, stainless steel bracelet, or blue calf leather strap. And since all are made to work with the EasX-CHANGE system, it is super easy to switch up your look.


The 43mm replica IWC Pilots BP43 is powered by IWC’s in-house 82100 calibre, which boasts 60 hours of power reserve and is finally viewable via a sapphire crystal caseback. For years, top fake IWC hid their intricate and beautiful movements behind solid casebacks, and now thanks to the efforts of Christian Knoop, IWC’s Creative Director, movements are on full display.
Available with either a blue or black dial, the IWC replica for men was inspired by 1940s military observation copy watches wholesale that were worn over a pilot or navigator’s thigh or flight gloves. Swiss made fake IWC first introduced these oversized (supersized at the time) watches in the early 2000s as the Big Pilot’s Watch ref. 5002. New for 2021 is the continual refinement of the perfect fake IWC Big Pilot’s and the integration of various technical and aesthetical changes.
Unlike previous Big Pilot’s, the new high quality fake IWC doesn’t feature a date or power reserve indicator. The cheap super clone watch is clean and refined while remaining faithful to the original.

“The 1:1 fake IWC Big Pilot’s perfectly embodies IWC’s extensive heritage and expertise in engineering rugged and reliable instruments tailored to meet the needs of elite aviators. It exemplifies how a purely functional design can transform into a cultural icon. Today, the high quality copy IWC Big Pilot’s Watch is not only one of the most recognizable watch designs in the world but also an expression of a certain character and mindset,” says Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.
In The Metal
As you can see from Watchonista’s original images, the copy IWC Pilot’s BP43 is well executed and finely finished. In-person, the 43mm case doesn’t wear as large as its specifications indicate. The Swiss movement fake IWC wasn’t overpowering to wear on my relatively small wrists, yet it still had enough wrist presence and thickness (13.6mm) to carry itself as best tool copy watches.

The oversized screw-down crown, a hallmark of the luxury copy IWC Big Pilot’s collection, felt sturdy and robust. The EasX-CHANGE system held up to multiple uses, and it was downright fun to change up the watch’s look in the span of just a few seconds.
I fully recognize this best replica watch might not be for everyone. It is on the larger side of IWC’s Pilot’s watch collection, after all. And if it is not your cup of tea, there remains more than a few best quality fake IWC Pilot’s of multiple sizes, even going all the way down to 36mm. Yet if you are in the market for a faithful Pilot’s Watch, one that can be worn on many occasions, the IWC replica fits the bill.
Pricing & Availability
The white Arabic numerals hour markers high imitation IWC Big Pilot’s Watch starts at $8,400 on a calfskin leather strap and tops out at $9,350 on a stainless steel bracelet. IWC replica store also has a range of strap styles and materials available for purchase after you acquire your perfect replica watches. Purchasing a new strap is just as easy as using the EasX-CHANGE system and can be done by visiting your nearest IWC boutique or the brand’s website.

It’s here! Aussies can now preorder the new cheap fake Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 in all colours (yes, including blue)

Every now and then a brand announces a new replica watch that hits all the right spots. The design, the look on the wrist and the history all need to work together to give the watch the right level of appeal, which leaves everyone pining to have it on their wrist. That is exactly what the perfect fake Tissot PRX collection has done. We recently spent some quality time with the three difference quartz references, but we all knew what was on the horizon – Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 – and it has finally arrived.

The quartz copy watch was a killer aesthetically, and perfectly hits that hot spot of late 70s design the watch world can’t seem to get enough of right now – integrated lugs, barrel shaped case, and one of the – if not THE – best bracelets for the price point.
However, quartz. Not what we all want. We are excited to let you know that we have the first allocation of the automatic references in Australia, and can offer all three models in small quantities to Time+Tide readers. One of the exciting design features of the automatic models is the dial – aaa quality replica Tissot call it ‘raised honeycomb’ (other brands waffle, tapisserie, it goes on) and it adds depth and dimension where there was more of a galvanic sunray sheen on the quartz models.
The automatic movement replica Tissot Powermatic 80 is a modified ETA 2824-2 movement that in our opinion is quite unsung; thanks to a reduced beat-rate of 3hz – down from 4 hz – it offers a whopping 80 hours of PR, it’s robust for daily wear thanks to the magnetic field resistant Nivachron hairspring, and it is nicely displayed in the open caseback. But more of that geek detail to follow on Time+Tide in days to come in hands-on and in-depth and video reviews, for now, you’re just getting a coveted shot at a preorder of a collection that will almost certainly have demand well outstripping supply for some time.

Delivery is expected August. There’s a tiny bit of patience required, but what do they say about all good things taking time?
Fake Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 price and availability:
The black dial copy Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 is AUD$1050 for the black and blue dials, while the rose gold colour is $1075. Please note, cheap replica watches are offered on a first come first served basis, we are unable to reserve pieces and when a colour is sold out, it is gone. We will keep you posted on availability of the collection beyond our allocation over the coming weeks.

When Runway Meets Racetrack: Best Fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “IWC Racing”

Throughout its history, fake IWC Schaffhausen has been heavily involved in the world of aviation and also, to a lesser extent, in the world of motorsports. Until recently, the company’s work in the latter field exerted its influence mainly on one particular IWC replica watches for sale family, the racing-inspired Ingenieur, while the modern evolution of the Pilot’s family remained rooted in its original 1930s and ’40s cockpit designs. But synergy is the name of the game these days, apparently, as witness the manufacture’s latest high-complication timepiece, the black dial AAA copy IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “IWC Racing,” which takes its cues both from aeronautical and automotive sources.


Limited to just 15 pieces, in a matte-black Ceratanium case in the classical Big Pilot’s Watch style, the watch contains the IWC in-house Caliber 94800, one of the Schaffhausen maison’s most complicated movements, boasting a tourbillon with an integrated constant-force mechanism, a perpetual moon-phase display for the northern and southern hemispheres, and an analog display for its four-day (96-hour) power reserve. Measuring 46.2 mm in diameter and featuring the cheap fake IWC Big Pilot’s historically inspired, large conical crown, the case is the latest in IWC’s lineup forged from Ceratanium, a specially developed alloy that is as hard and scratch-resistant as ceramic but as light and robust as titanium, with a distinctive matte-black surface.

Caliber 94805, which made its debut in a limited-edition piece for 2018’s Jubilee collection, is noteworthy for its patented constant-force mechanism, which transmits completely even impulses to the mechanism and works in conjunction with the tourbillon, positioned on the dial at 12 o’clock, to achieve an exceptionally high level of precision. Its double moon-phase display, between 12 and 2 o’clock, is “perpetual,” meaning it will only need to be adjusted by one day after 577.5 years. Its power reserve of four full days is displayed at 4:30, designed to resemble a tachymeter, Other automobile-inspired elements include the inner hour ring, which is reminiscent of cold-air intakes on a high-performance engine, and the dashboard-style combination of white numerals and yellow-colored accents.
Visible behind a sapphire exhibition caseback, the movement is finished to resemble an engine block, its plates and bridges fully blackened in a rhodium-plating process to echo the tones of the case.

Completing the theme is the best quality replica watches‘ black rubber strap, which is lined with an inlay of Alcantara, a firm-gripping, durable, synthetic micro-fiber used on the seats and steering wheel covers of sports cars. The best IWC copy watch is priced at 220,000 Swiss francs, or about $240,000.

Travelers by Night: Luxury Fake Chopard L.U.C GMT One and Time Traveler One Black Editions

Whether or not you’ll be needing a “vaccine passport” for your next overseas trip, there is one accessory you’ll definitely not want to board your flight without: a really handsome luxury replica watches to keep track of time at your destination and back home. Fortunately, Chopard has at least two new models that will fit the bill, both combining a contemporary “stealth” look with user-friendly functionality. Here are the cheap fake Chopard L.U.C GMT One Black and L.U.C Time Traveler One Black, representing the vanguard of the watch-and-jewelry house’s 2021 gents’ collection unveiled at Watches & Wonders.


Both timepieces hail from Chopard’s L.U.C family, named for founder Louis-Ulysse Chopard and positioned as the maison’s “epitome of fine watchmaking.” Originally introduced in 2016 in steel and precious-metal case variations, both travelers’ models are now offered in cases made of ceramised grade 5 titanium, a material used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical component manufacturing. It achieves its exceptional hardness (700 Vickers), friction and corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility through electroplasma technology, which oxidizes surface layers of titanium at extreme temperatures. Paired with gray-and-black-toned dials and straps, the cases enhance the timepieces’ avant-garde monochromatic look.
The galvanic gray dial of the Swiss-made copy Chopard L.U.C GMT One (above) is rimmed by a snailed railway-track minute scale and a circular satin-brushed 24-hour ring divided into two sectors: light-gray daytime for hours and black for nighttime hours. The case, at 42 mm in diameter and 11.71 mm in height, features two crowns — one positioned at 2 o’clock to adjust the date and the local time, the other at 4 o’clock to control the second-time-zone setting, indicated by a baton-style, arrow-tipped hand on the 24-hour scale. The Dauphine hour and minute hands, hallmarks of perfect replica Chopard L.U.C watches, are in metallic black; Super-LumiNova coats the hour markers, and the date appears in a window at 6 o’clock.


Chopard’s in-house Caliber L.U.C 01.10-L, beating behind the watch’s sapphire exhibition caseback and equipped with an integrated GMT function, it features automatic winding, 31 jewels, a 28,200-vph frequency, and a 60-hour power reserve. Like all L.U.C movements that indicate running seconds, it is a COSC-certified chronometer. Its typical decorative finishes include chamfering on all components and côtes de Genève on the bridges. The hand-crafted black-and-gray rubber strap, made of rubber that has been processed like a fabric, is highly durable, water-and-sweat-resistant, and carries a REACH certification for its environmentally friendly manufacturing steps.
For those whose business (or leisure) requires them to track events in multiple time zones simultaneously, there’s the cheap copy Chopard L.U.C time Traveler One Black, whose multiple indications are on a series of concentrically arranged disks. Reading outward from the satin-brushed dial’s center, we start with a small, center-mounted, arrow-tipped hand, tucked behind the Dauphine hour and minute hands, which indicates the date on a 1-31 scale; continue with the local time, indicated on a railway-track circle; and proceed to the graduated 24-hour ring that works in concert with the outermost disk bearing the names of 24 cities representing the 24 main world time zones.

Testing the Best Quality Fake Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Navy Blue

Tudor has expanded its popular blue dials replica Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight series of dive watches. The latest addition is a blue version with a manufacture caliber and a moderately sized 39-mm case that has already won the “Challenge” watch award at last November’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG). How does Tudor’s new entry fare in our test?


The Tudor label has been trendy in recent years and can look back on a steadily growing fan base. Rolex’s second brand was stagnant for many years, but since 2009, Tudor has begun accelerating again. Tudor’s history, which is rich in characteristic design, is being emphasized in the brand’s newly launched retro models. The Swiss fake Tudor Heritage Black Bay, which looks back to Tudor’s early dive watches, was released in 2012. Its debut was followed by the premiere of the smaller Black Bay Fifty-Eight in 2018. The blue version, which we are testing here, was unveiled in 2020.

The name “Fifty-Eight” refers to 1958, the year in which best quality replica Tudor introduced its first divers’ watch, Reference 7924, known as the “Big Crown.” The new watch’s diameter of 39 mm corresponds to the dimensions of the case of the historical model. In other respects, too, this new version, at first glance, actually looks like a vintage watch, an antique model. It even looks somewhat delicate, thanks to the rotating bezel and the smaller dial.
The vintage impression is further underscored by the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, which is highly curved along its rim like the acrylic crystals of models from previous decades. The dial, too, is slightly convex like the faces of classic antique best 1:1 replica watches. The narrow strap lugs and the typography on the rotatable bezel also allude to Tudor’s history. The designers even opted to omit a date display, thus completing the historical impression.

Old luxury Tudor replica dive watches with so-called “snowflake” hands have become famous and are eagerly sought after at auctions. The nickname derives from the squares at the tips of the hour hand and seconds hand: each is rotated 45 degrees and somewhat resembles a stylized snowflake. This detail first appeared on the tips of the hands toward the end of the 1960s and was retained thereafter.
The screw-down crown is engraved with a Tudor rose emblem.
In 1956, French naval divers turned to Tudor to find the ideal divers’ watch for their purposes. Tudor subsequently became the official supplier to French military frogmen. The combat divers opted for blue rather than black dials in the mid-1970s. Our test Tudor replica with blue dial and blue aluminum dive-time scale recalls these timepieces. The aluminum scale is not as scratch-resistant as its ceramic counterparts, but its matte surface goes better with this model’s vintage styling.

All in all, Tudor has succeeded in creating a very handsome and harmonious retro watch that looks even more timeless thanks to its blue color and the fact that it forgoes the golden hands and hour indexes that are usually installed on the dials of other Fifty-Eight models. Fortunately, functionality was not allowed to fall by the wayside: large luminous indexes and plenty of luminous material on the hands guarantee outstanding legibility by day and by night. The easily grasped crown decouples from the winding mechanism when screwed shut, thus protecting the latter. The time is easy to set thanks to the stop-seconds function and the absence of a date display, which accordingly eliminates the crown’s first extracted position.

The unidirectional rotatable bezel clicks into place in single-minute increments. It, too, is easy to grasp and to turn thanks to its finely serrated rim. The bezels of early models had some play and sounded tinny when they clicked into place, but Tudor has made significant improvements: this watch’s bezel clicks almost as authoritatively into place as do its counterparts on watches made by copy Tudor’s big sister, Rolex. A luminous triangular index enables the wearer to read the dive time even in dark conditions or murky water. This Black Bay is also fully suitable for diving thanks to its case, which is water resistant to 200 meters, and its water-resistant textile strap.


The blue textile strap accentuates the watch’s vintage look.
The watch’s blue fabric strap is lightweight and durable and has a gray stripe along its midline. It is sewn using a traditional method that relies on historical machines. The handsome pin buckle is styled to resemble the shield shape of Tudor’s coat-of-arms logo. Like the case, the clasp juxtaposes polished and satin-finished surfaces.

The textile strap is permeable to air, which contributes to its comfort on the wrist. Flat textile straps often look out of place on cheap fake watches with tall cases, but that is not an issue here: the strap suits the Black Bay well and enhances its overall vintage appearance.

The strap runs across the back of the case and therefore largely covers it, but that’s not a problem here because, unfortunately, this Tudor watch doesn’t have a glass back, so manufacture Caliber MT5402 won’t be seen by the buyer and can only be admired by the watchmaker who unscrews the fully threaded steel back and opens the case for maintenance or repairs. The movement is particularly impressive because it upholds Tudor’s traditional virtues of precision and robustness. The brand fulfills the former claim by having each movement tested by the official Swiss chronometer-testing authority, COSC. This exam certifies, among other criteria, that the average daily rate deviation remains in a narrow range between –4 and +6 seconds.

The Tudor Black Bay replica watches with Swiss movement inspires with its design in much the same way as did Tudor’s historical dive watches. And like its ancestors, functionality is given equal priority. Apart from the missing date display and the scratch-sensitive aluminum bezel, you don’t have to make any compromises here. This newcomer has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, plenty of luminous material, high water resistance, good wearing comfort and easy operation. The price is right, too. So Tudor has done everything right. But this success is also shown by the long waiting lists for this model. In this way, too, Tudor is following in the footsteps of its big sister, Rolex.

REVIEW: THE SWISS FAKE IWC AUTOMATIC TOP GUN

IWC presented new best quality replica IWC Pilot’s Top Gun watches during SIHH in 2019, introducing their Ceratanium material for the first time in the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph. Among the new releases was the “Mojave Desert” chronograph featuring a sand-colored ceramic, and the black ceramic Top Gun Automatic, serving as an entry point to the collection. Drawing on IWC’s well established Pilot’s Watch design language, the Automatic offered a familiar face while using the brand’s new(ish) 32110 in-house caliber. A few years later, we’re taking a look back at the Automatic Top Gun to see how it fares today, both as a Top Gun entry point, and as an IWC Pilot’s Watch.
It’s worth exploring the relationship between black dial copy IWC Top Gun collection, and the US Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, aka Top Gun, from which the collection takes its name. The US Navy granted IWC exclusive license to manufacture Top Gun labeled timepieces in 2005, with the first watches appearing with the Swiss movement fake IWC Pilot’s Watch family in 2007 in the form of a Double (rattrapante) Chronograph. The driving force here is to produce watches befitting the elite pilots enduring the rigors of the nine week Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor (SFTI) program (which likely involves less shirtless beach volleyball than you’re imagining).


IWC was granted time on the US Navy’s aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan to get a better sense of the training routine of these pilots, an exercise that laid the groundwork for the unique materials and appearance of Top Gun watches. The black ceramic cases and matte textures are born from the need to eliminate any potential reflective surface that could interfere with the pilot’s visibility. The material must also be able to withstand the knocks that undoubtedly come with the high G forces experienced inside the cockpit during training.
Unlike the classic Pilot’s Watch formula developed by IWC in 1949 with the iconic Mark 11, Top Gun watches are designed and built around the modern, high tech environments occupied by pilots today. However, the design language employed does indeed lean on the brand’s well established Pilot’s Watch identity, and this is especially evident in the Automatic Top Gun presented here.
For the curious, the license fee paid by IWC copy to the US Navy goes to a charitable organization supporting retired Top Gun pilots.
At a glance, the Automatic Top Gun is clearly identifiable thanks to the shared dial design found throughout IWC’s expansive Pilot’s Watch family. And for good reason. It’s a design that borrows heavily from the original Mark 11 developed for RAF pilots in 1948. Each hour is clearly marked with its Arabic numeral, each minute gets a hash mark, and at 12 o’clock we find the triangle accompanied by two dots on either side. That’s pretty much it, and that’s by design.

The appeal of the Pilot’s Watch is its simplicity and practicality. It’s easy to read at a glance, there are no imposing complications, and its demure stature keeps it flying under the radar (sorry) when not in use. Of course, the OG Mark 11 had no date, and its hour and minute hands were far simpler, but the design as a whole holds up remarkably well more than 70 years later. To my eye, there’s nothing that immediately dates the design of the Mark 11, and it looks as relevant as ever today as it did in ‘48. In fact, I see an approachable nature in the Mark 11 that is somehow lost on its modern counterparts, and that’s not a knock on IWC or their modern best fake watches, but rather a testament to the power of a great design.

If I may sidetrack for a moment. We laude Omega for their modern Speedmaster Professional as they’ve managed to preserve the finer details of the original model to a remarkable degree. While the Speedmaster brand itself has branched into all manner of ridiculous directions, the Professional model has remained a stalwart of the original vision. I say this because the Mark 11 was just a design, and I lament the fact that I don’t see it preserved as such within the modern line of cheap fake IWC Pilot’s Watches. The influence is clearly there, but devil is in the finer details that remain absent on the newer watches.
I notice the same thing with the “Tribute to 3705” – which does a remarkable job of capturing the original 3705 in modern trappings, but it’s clearly not meant as a re-issue or re-creation. It’s something else entirely, it’s ‘inspired by’. This is obviously intentional on the part of IWC, who aren’t in the business of releasing 1:1 remakes of their historic designs. While I prefer the proportions of the smaller registers and overall dimensions of the actual 3705, the “Tribute” makes changes that provide greater levels of legibility and usability, as in, the changes are driven by function.

The functional changes seen in the modern Mark XVIII and Spitfire as well as the Automatic Top Gun are seen in the design of the hour and minute hands, the inclusion of a date complication, and the proportions of the minute and hour bars and hashes at the edge of the dial. These are small things, but as noted, there’s not much else going on here, so each small change adds up to a big difference.
