When retro-inspired replica watches online are modeled after specific predecessors, fans of mechanical timekeeping can “grasp” design history. In this feature from the our website, we take a look at two luxury fake watches that awaken a longing for the past.
FAKE BREITLING NAVITIMER
The cheap fake Breitling Navitimer enjoys cult status not only among pilots, but also with their earthbound counterparts. Introduced in 1952, this watch also represents an epoch when increasing air traffic revolutionized travel. Numerous new versions without a slide rule on the bezel and even without a stopwatch function debuted in 2018. But classical model variations with both of these functions, such as the 1:1 replica Breitling Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 46 (shown), are still available for Breitling fans. They differ from the original Breitling replica for men mainly due to their larger size and contrasting-colored subdials. Stainless steel, 46 mm, manufacture Caliber B01, automatic, chronometer, $8,215.
REPLICA ROLEX GMT-MASTER II
Thanks to an additional 24-hour hand and its corresponding rotatable bezel, this Swiss made copy Rolex model is the epitome of a traveler’s watch. The main hour hand wasn’t separately adjustable until the debut of the high quality replica Rolex GMT-Master II in 1982. The two hour hands were inseparably linked when the original model premiered in 1955, which meant that if the wearer wanted his super clone watch to show the time in a second zone, he had to turn the rotatable bezel until it matched the additional hour hand. Nicknamed “Pepsi,” the coveted steel Swiss movement fake Rolex with its blue-and-red bezel celebrated its comeback in 2018. Stainless steel, ceramic bezel, 40 mm, manufacture Caliber 3285, automatic, chronometer, $9,250.
