Fake Bell & Ross Watches UK launches a steampunk update of the Skull BR 01: the Skull Bronze

Bell & Ross’ replica watches Airborne collection has been joined by a new bronze version of the Skull BR 01

The Skull Bronze is being released as a collectors’ update of the original Skull BR 01, which replica Bell & Ross watches launched back in 2009. While at first glance it might not sit so comfortably within Bell & Ross’s ethos of instrumentation-inspired aviation watches, there is a reason for its existence.

In fact, this particular watch, with the added steampunk feel that changing from black PVD or steel has brought to the Airborne line, sits at the centre of a watch nerd Venn diagram: there are fans of bronze watches; there are fans of skull watches, and there are fans of replica watches uk with obscure links to aviation history. This watch combines all three.

The first two are self-evident: the bronze will soon lose that factory-fresh golden sheen and develop a unique patina, a factor that has seen the likes of fake Panerai watches, Schofield and Zenith release bronze pieces recently. And skull watches come in a surprisingly wide variety, from the Mexican-themed creations of Fiona Kruger to the bejewelled pieces from De Grisogono, via Hublot, Richard Mille, HYT, Corum and many more.

It’s the aviation part that takes a bit more explaining. The fake Bell & Ross watches, like so many of Bell & Ross’s designs, has WWII roots: the skull and crossbones logo was adopted as the symbol of the earliest US parachute regiments in WWII, whose motto was “Death from Above”.

It was an emblem designed to intimidate the enemy and prevent bad luck. A dash of superstition went a long way when parachuting into Normandy during the D-Day landings – exactly what the troops of the 101st and 82nd American airborne divisions who inspired the first Breitling replica watches uk did. Here, the bezel and the screws make up the crossbones, whilst a photoluminescent skull, painted with B-light pigment, grins from underneath the sapphire glass.

The spike-shaped indices have actually been plated onto the back of the crystal, giving clear legibility above the brown and bronze tones of the dial. The gilt sword-shaped hands sit in the middle of the skull, thus requiring the screw-down crown to be positioned off-centre. The automatic Rolex replica watches movement inside is the BR-CAL.302, which is an adapted caliber (either a Sellita 300SW or ETA 2824).

It’s the bronze case, though, that really adds the vintage appeal. Made up of 92% copper and 8% tin, the cheap replica watches red gold colour will acquire a patina over time to match the gently weathered brown calfskin strap. The caseback is light, hypoallergenic titanium, making it comfortable against the skin. Only 500 models will be released, priced at £4,400.

Depths of Complexity: 5 Ultra-Complicated Dive Replica Watches UK

If one of your New Year’s resolutions was to spend less money this year on watches, you might want to skip this article. Most mechanical dive cheap replica watches are priced under $10,000 (even though the iconic Replica Rolex Deepsea,Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller, and Replica Rolex Submariner watches, as well as many Blancpain Fifty Fathoms models, might go for a bit more nowadays), but there are several types of fascinating dive watches that go way beyond that.

Most of these are ultra-complicated Rolex replica watches, for collectors who either have the financial means to pay someone to go diving for them, or — on a more serious note — those who simply do not want to go for a swim while wearing a perpetual calendar from Patek or Lange (which is as understandable as it is recommended). Others are simply aimed at enthusiasts who appreciate high-end, robust watches (with more than a date for a complication) with the looks of a classical diver. Here are five that made my list.

IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month (IW3794): This boutique-only perpetual calendar features a rubber-coated titanium case and a rose-gold bezel; it is not only the most complicated IWC Aquatimer, but also the largest replica IWC watches ever made, with a diameter of 49 mm.

The crown at 4 o’clock sets the mechanical alarm, and there’s also a power-reserve indicator and a bezel-locking mechanism. And if you don’t like the rubber strap, you can order it on a gold bracelet as well.

Replica Blancpain X Fathoms (5018-1230-64A): When it comes to complicated dive watches, Blancpain offers you by far the most professional option with this large, 55-mm mechanical watch that could actually compete with a dive computer. The X Fathoms combines depth measurement (up to 90 meters) with maximum-depth-reached memory, a separate indication on the 0-15-meter scale with an exceptional +/- 30 cm precision, and a retrograde five-minute counter for decompression stops.

7 New Replica Watches UK Inspired by Historical Pieces

The vintage-look trend that has been so prevalent in the vintage replica watches uk world in recent years showed no signs of abating at this year’s Baselworld watch fair. Modern re-editions of historical pieces continue to emerge from some of the most venerable watch brands. Here are seven notable examples of “vintage-inspired” watches launching this year.

The Omega Replica Globemaster — the first watch to receive the brand’s “Master Chronometer” certification — is technically an all-new model in the Omega portfolio, but it gets its design cues from earlier models: the “pie pan” dial echoes that of a vintage Replica Omega Constellation from 1952; and the fluted bezel is derived from that of another Constellation model from 1968. The 39-mm case (available in stainless steel, yellow gold, two-tone steel and yellow gold, and Omega’s proprietary Sedna gold) has a brushed finish, with two polished bevels connecting the edges of the lugs to the bezel. The top ridges of the fluted bezel have a smoothed finish. The “Master Chronometer” movement, Caliber 8900, meets not only the strict precision requirements of Swiss testing agency COSC, but additional standards established by Omega and METAS, the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, which include functioning while exposed to magnetic fields up to 15,000 Gauss.

The Replica Tudor North Flag derives its name and design inspiration from the British North Greenland Expedition in the early 1950s, in which members of the expedition team wore circa-1952 Tudor Oyster Prince models. These “tool watches” were instrumental in carrying out this exploratory mission to some of the earth’s harshest climatic conditions. The North Flag owes some of its “scientific equipment” look to these early watches: a satin-brushed steel case (40 mm in diameter) with ergonomic curves, highlighted by a bezel composed of matte ceramic on one side and brushed steel on the other, along with a conical winding crown that screws down for a 100-meter water resistance. The caseback features a sapphire window through which one can view the movement, automatic Caliber MT5621, which also happens to be the brand’s first in-house-made movement.

The Breitling Replica Transocean Chronograph 1915 marks the 100th anniversary of a major design innovation that we too often take for granted on contemporary chronographs. In the early 20th century, all chronographs were monopushers, with the controls for starting, stopping, and returning the timer to zero all placed in the crown. In 1915, Gaston Breitling, son of founder Léon Breitling, designed a timing watch with a separate pusher to control the start, stop and reset functions. He placed it on the side of the case at 2 o’clock, just above the crown. The 2 o’clock positioning would soon become standard, as it was easy to reach and control on the wrist. This limited edition watch plays off of these roots, updating them for a dial and case design in keeping with the Transocean collection. An angled pusher sits at 2 o’clock, above the fluted crown. The silvered dial has a bicompax display: a small-seconds subdial is at 9 o’clock and a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. The Breitling replica watches uk is fitted with an all-new manufacture movement, Caliber B14, which is manually wound and Chronometer-certified by COSC.

A watch from the 1920s provided the template for the Longines Fake Pulsometer Chronograph, a timepiece whose primary function was intended for use by medical professionals. The so-called “doctor’s watch” has a pulsometric scale printed in red around the periphery of the lacquered, white dial. Used in conjunction with the sweeping chronograph hand (which is operated by a monopusher in the crown), the scale enables the wearer to measure one’s heartbeat in a simple and reliable manner. The 40-mm steel case has a sapphire crystal in the front and back and contains the Longines-exclusive L788.2 movement, developed by ETA, which is outfitted with a column-wheel chronograph and holds a power reserve of 54 hours.

As many watch enthusiasts are aware, Patek Philippe replica watches has a long history in world-time watches, developing its first “Heure Universelle” timepieces with famous watchmaker Louis Cottier, in 1930 and awarded a patent for its original “Travel Time” mechanism in 1959. What fewer may know is that the brand also has a history in aviation, developing notable “siderometer” (or “hour angle”) wristwatches back in the early days of flight, two of which are now on display in Patek’s museum in Geneva and serve as the inspiration for the Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 5524. This very unconventional Patek watch has the look of an early-20th-century pilots’ watch (albeit one in a white-gold case) and is equipped with Patek’s Caliber 324 S C FUS, with an easy-to-use and aviator-friendly second-time-zone function. Aesthetic touches include the dark navy blue dial, inspired by the body paint of 1930s American fighter planes, and the vintage brown calfskin leather strap with contrast top-stitching, reminiscent of the leather belts worn by 1930s pilots.

The Seiko Grand Seiko 62GS is based upon the very first Grand Seiko replica watch with an automatic movement, released in 1967. Following up on the previous two Grand Seiko Historical Collection releases — the re-imagined 44GS in 2013 and the 1964 “Self Dater” last year — the recreation of the 62GS is highly reminiscent of the original, which fans of the brand fondly remember for its mirrored, multi-sided case (achieved with Seiko’s “Zaratsu polishing”); large “bezel free” dial opening; long, sharply edged hands typical of the Grand Seiko line; and recessed crown at 4 o’clock, a clever means to convey to the watch’s owner that hand-winding was not required. It is powered by Seiko’s mechanical Caliber 9S65, with automatic winding and a 72-hour power reserve. Inherited features from the original watch include the lion emblem on the caseback and “Diashock” logo (referring to Seiko’s shock protection technology) on the dial.

The Oris Diver Sixty-Five revives the look of an Oris dive replica watches released 50 years ago and gives it a 21st century makeover. The 1965 model had a chromium-plated brass case and plexiglas crystal, a bidirectional rotating bezel, and a black plastic strap, while the new version has a larger, more contemporary 40-mm case in corrosion-resistant stainless steel; a scratch-resistant, nonreflective sapphire crystal with a “bubble-curved” shape; and a safer (for diving) unidirectional bezel. The bezel of the Diver Sixty-Five is enhanced with a very of-the-moment black aluminum inlay, and the hands and indices (filled with tritium on the original model) are filled with a type of Super-LumiNova called “Light Old Radium” whose beige glow contrasts nicely with the black dial in the dark. The steel caseback is engraved with the same historical Oris emblem found on the original’s, the crown screws down to ensure a water-resistance to 100 meters, and the modern version is available on a black textile NATO strap and steel bracelet as well as a rubber strap. The movement is Oris’s automatic Caliber 733, which is based on a Sellita SW200.
