Swiss made fake Bell & Ross gained notoriety for their cockpit-inspired designs with aviation instruments like the 1:1 best fake BR 03-92 once fashioned in PVD-treated steel. But gradually the brand switched the cases over to a more durable and lightweight ceramic – which was aided by the resources of Chanel when they invested and took a stake in the B&R brand. The ceramic switch up was a great idea for the line. Not only were the cases less prone to scratching and discolouration, considering the block-like design on the wrist, they were also less hefty to wear.
I know first-hand, as I used to own the PVD Steel version of the BR 03-92 Phantom. While seemingly large, the BR 03-92, in favour of the BR-01 that is 46mm, is a much more wearable 42mm that has small lugs that will not extend far across the wrist. With 100 metres of water resistance, this beautiful block of ceramic will make for a great daily wearer.
Hublot celebrated 15 years of its flagship Big Bang model with the introduction of the first-ever Big Bang with an integrated metal bracelet, the perfect replica Big Bang Unico Integral. The watch represents an extension to the existing Big Bang Unico 42 series, but also notably features an updated case design whose first link is fused with the new bracelet and whose chronograph pushers recall those of the very first Big Bang released in 2005.
Fully visible behind the sapphire dial is the in-house, skeletonized Unico HUB1280 caliber, equipped with a chronograph function driven by a column wheel and a horizontal double-clutch mechanism. The self-winding movement, which comprises 354 components, boasts a flat automatic winding system and stores a power reserve of 72 hours, or three days, in its mainspring barrel. Its column wheel is visible from the front, behind the applied indices and subdials at 3 o’clock for elapsed minutes and 9 o’clock for running seconds.
The perfect fake Franck Muller Master Banker is the brand’s take on a travel watch. Opting for a multi subdial display, three timezones are shown and can all be adjusted via 1 crown. This timepiece is part of the Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex collection and available in various size and colors.
The Case and Dial
Launched in 1996, the best replica Master Banker broke new ground. While most other multi-time zone watches of that time indicated the additional time zones only with the help of extra hour hands, the Master Banker took things a step further with three separate time indicators on the dial, each with its own hour and minute hands.
As an update to the original model, Franck Muller updates the collection with several new colored dials. In this article, we feature the most wearable of the lot, an 18k rose gold, blue dial with denim strap model. The watch is also offered in seven vibrant colour combinations, with a choice of two sizes—36.00mm x 50.40mm (Ref. 7880) and 39.60mm x 55.40mm (Ref. 8880). The watch is of significant size and we found the smaller sized reference to be much more wearable compared to the larger reference. But as with many curved crystal watches, the dome sapphire can be tricky to photograph or read without ambient light reflection.
The best fake Franck Muller Master Banker uses the MVD 2800-MBSC automatic movement. The local time is told by the central hour, minute and seconds hands, while the aperture at eight o’clock reveals the date synchronised to the local time. Elsewhere, two sub dials at twelve and six o’clock represent the actual times in the second and third time zones. Just as easy to use, the three-time zone displays—which include their own hour and minute hands — can each be individually adjusted via a single crown, without the need for additional pushers. The crown can be actuated in three positions: the first position for winding, the middle position to set the two time zones, and the third to set the local time.
The Master Banker’s patented multi-time zone mechanism is based on a system that includes an additional pinion to drive the second and third time zones, while local time display is driven by the movement’s standard gear train. However, since independent hour hand advancement is not available on this watch, changing the time on different displays may require some dexterity to align the minute hands. This is a bonus feature however, if one requires 30 minute variances for instance in India’s timezone.
As much as the cheap AAA replica watch has useful travel features, it is not really an ideal travel watch. For one, a full gold large sized luxury watch will turn heads and draw unnecessary attention from crooks or customs alike. A stealthy travel watch that’s low key, lightweight, with high power reserve and water resistance will make a more ideal timepiece. But if the watch is used from the comfort of the office, to time global stock markets as its name ‘Master Banker’ suggests, then it might actually be pretty useful. Then again, the lack of an AM/PM indicator on the subdials translates to a need to do some mental arithmetic to calculate the time anyways.
