In 1939, Messrs Rodrigues and Antonio Teixera, the two merchants from Portugal wanted an accurate wristwatch, so they placed an order from IWC. At that time, the watchmaking technology was not as advanced as today and the it was a period of evolution from pocket watch to wristwatch in watchmaking industry. For timepieces, the smaller the movement is, the less accurate the watch will be. IWC adopted the Cal.74-a large movement from pocket watch to make that order.
Ref.325 was born and the three iconic features of appearance were Arabic numerals hour markers, willow-leaf shaped hands and curved lugs. The diameter has been increased to 42 mm as the movement is very large. Nowadays, it will be welcomed however, at that time, 34 mm was the most popular size. So only 304 pieces of Ref.325 were produced. The size of the case completely limited the sales of 42 mm imitation IWC Ref.325.
The condition hadn’t been changed till 1980s. In 1993, the brand released a large mode Ref.5441 with a pocket watch movement at the time of the brand’s 125th anniversary, which also represented that the Portugieser collection was founded. In 1995, IWC launched the Ref.3712, which was the brand’s first chronograph timepiece. It was mentioning that the steel case fake IWC Portugieser was not the commonly seen chronograph, instead it was the complex split-seconds model.
20 years later, the current IWC Portugieser looks very similar to the original Ref.3714. There aren’t obvious change between them.
The cheap fake Mido Ocean Star watch released recently has attracted lots of watch lovers especially who are interested in diving watches. It is the brand’s first watch that can achieve the depth of 600 meters. It is available in two versions including the blue dial and black dial.
Blue is quite a popular color that has been adopted in watchmaking industry. Many watch brands have released products with blue dials. Mido copy watch with blue bezel features large hour markers and wide hands which guarantee the ultra legibility. The integrated layout and elements of the dial are understated and caring, which will easily take the wearers to its heart.
The heart of the knockoff watch with steel case is calibre 80 Si, the self-winding mechanical movement that is developed on basis of ETA C07.821. It has also been seen on other models belonging to Swatch Group, which provides a power reserve of 80 hours.
The new Mido is a good choice for people who love the diving watches with its brilliant appearance, high quality and extraordinary performance. By the way, it is very cheap that many watch lovers could afford.
We know that diving watch is waterproof that allow the wearers to take it when diving or swimming. But we have ever heard that some diving watches have been broken for there’s water entering. Why?
In theory, the waterproof rating of the watch is carried out in the laboratory, and the temperature is kept at a static temperature of 20℃ to 25℃, but when the watch is actually taken to dive, the water temperature, water flow and pressure may change instantaneously. This caused the water in the watch that should be waterproof. Another reason must be the rubber seal. It may be maturing in daily life. A well-protected rubber ring can be used for a few more years while If you don’t carefully rubber ring should be replaced within three years.
Why the watch appearance parts are generally not covered by the warranty?
In fact, not all the components of the wristwatches are guaranteed, such as bracelet, case, crown and sapphire are not guaranteed. For example, the scratching and aging of the Rolex fake watch with black dial appearance are normal, and the flaws beyond the range may be considered as human error. If scratches, pits, discoloration, chipping or gold plating falling off happen, the responsibility is not clear.
Are the diamonds on the wristwatches true?
The grade of diamond is very strict, which is divided according to weight, color, clarity and cut. Therefore, most of the diamonds on the watch are artificial diamonds and there are few watch brands engraved real diamonds. See the Cartier knockoff watch with blue Roman numerals hour markers on the picture, all the dial, case, crown and bracelet have been engraved with diamonds, and if they are not artificial diamonds, the price will be expensive and scary.
Nomos Glashütte has cooperated with Ace Jewelers, the famous watch retailer of Dutch to launch a new limited edition – Club Campus Amsterdam, of which the black-red-white tone has been inspired by the city flag of Amsterdam.
The Nomos fake watch with red hour markers features a 38.5 mm stainless steel case. The unique and recognizable dial has maintained the design concept of the brand, but the thick and rough bezel is quite different from the consistent design style which is much bolder and stronger. In addition to the black-red-white tone inspired by the city flag, the other symbolic element of the flag of Amsterdam has been presented on the crown – three symbols of Saint Andrew’s Cross.
The red Arabic numerals and Roman numerals hour markers add the unique temperament to the dial which could be considered as the best combination of classics and modernity. The heart of Nomos Club copy watch with stainless steel case is the ultra thin manual winding Nomos Alpha movement, which provides a power reserve of 43 hours.
Swatch Group announced to quit the Baselworld this July, which gave a serious shock to Baselworld. Then several small watch brands have left it following the steps of Swatch. It was said that the CEO of MCH Group quit the job. It means that we will not see precise copy Omega watch, Blancpain, Tissot, Longines and so on the exhibition next year.
Why do these brands quit the exhibition? According to Swatch Group official, one of the most important reasons is that the cost of accommodation and food during the exhibition was too high, which greatly increased the cost of participation. The exhibitor started to solve this problem recently in order to recover the situation. It set four standards for the local hotels including setting price ceiling, limiting price fluctuations; canceling minimum consumption and prohibiting mandatory extra consumption. The Baselworld announced to the public that there was 40 hotels signing agreements with them and four standards would be observed.
The Baselworld 2019 will be held from March 20th to 26th, and there’s not enough time for the exhibitor. If the situation of high cost for the participation hasn’t been improved,will there be more brands to quit the exhibition? However, for watch lovers, the most important thing is that they will have the opportunity to enjoy the luxury knockoff watches.
