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 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: a pink dial copy watch. 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 copy 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, IWC, Max Büsser, Montblanc, Oris, 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 clone 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 watch. 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 BP43 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 IWC Pilots BP43 replica watch 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, 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 BP43 was inspired by 1940s military observation watches that were worn over a pilot or navigator’s thigh or flight gloves. 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 Big Pilot’s and the integration of various technical and aesthetical changes.
Unlike previous Big Pilot’s, the new high-end fake IWC watch doesn’t feature a date or power reserve indicator. The watch is clean and refined while remaining faithful to the original.

“The Big Pilot’s Watch 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 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 BP43 is well executed and finely finished. In-person, the 43mm case doesn’t wear as large as its specifications indicate. The watch 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 a luxury tool watch.

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 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 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 BP43 fits the bill.
Pricing & Availability
The white Arabic numerals hour markers fake 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 also has a range of strap styles and materials available for purchase after you acquire your watch. 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 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 cheap 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 model 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?
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, 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, 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 watch 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 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 watch’s 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 timepiece 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 copy 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 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 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 watch 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 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 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.

All-Black Replica Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Watch For Men

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.

Black Dial Fake Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Watch

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.

Skelton Dial Replica Hublot Big Bang Watch UK For Men

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.

Swiss Movement Fake Hublot Big Bang Watch

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.

Luxury Replica A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin with black aventurine dial

I shouldn’t be so surprised: A. Lange & Söhne replica takes my breath away with every single release. But when I opened the photos of the Saxonia Thin with its new black aventurine dial, I was struck by such a strong longing that I actually laughed at myself. And who would have thought that it would be the dial of this Saxonia Thin, and not its movement, to do that to my poor heart?
The best quality fake A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin is already a striking dress watch, but adding an unusual and rare black aventurine dial has turned it into an absolute sleeper in terms of a superior dress watch.

What exactly is aventurine? Most people would be excused for thinking it was a mineral, and, confusingly, there is actually a mineral called aventurine, a form of quartz with microscopic mica crystals giving the translucent crystal the appearance of containing 1,000 stars.
But what is more widely known as aventurine as it is in use in the watch industry for dials is simply glass with the inclusion of metallic crystals. The initial creation of aventurine is believed to have been a happy accident in one of the glass-blowing workshops in Murano, Italy (see the full story in Aventurine: Sparkling, Glittering, Mysterious, And Placing A Galaxy Of Stars On Your Wrist).

The most common aventurine contains copper oxides (along with small amounts of other metal oxides) that chemically reduce the oxides into elemental copper, allowing metallic crystals to form. Cobalt or manganese are used to create more silvery crystals while making a glass that ranges from dark blue to purple. This might be the most familiar example for watches: dark blue aventurine looks incredible as a watch dial. But a less known color, and apparently only recently more widely available to glassmakers, is black aventurine.


The black variation is the starkest form of aventurine glass made, resembling a truly black star-studded night sky. To our knowledge, Christiaan van der Klaauw introduced the first black aventurine dial in 2018 on the incredible Planetarium model. The material has not been widely used since, making this 40 mm copy A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin not only gorgeous and under-the-radar festive, but also rare.
