The Rolex Explorer II stood in the shadow of its older for many years, aviation themed brother and the GMT-Master. While the GMT replica watches were designed for pilots and frequent air travelers, the Explorer II was made for speleologists exploring caverns beneath the earth’s surface. The original Explorer II fake model had a very special looking, and its poor initial sales were largely because of its oddly specific target demographic instead of an overlap with another watch in Rolex’s lineup. The successor to the Explorer II, the other model was largely based off of the GMT-Master line of watches, and its numerous, similarities ultimately hindered potential Explorer II sales.
We can see several different reference releases throughout the history, Rolex’s Explorer II line of watches more-or-less remained a GMT-Master with a fixed 24-hour bezel and the option of a white dial. But, the luxury replica Rolex launched a new version of the Explorer II – one that followed a design completely unique itself.
The new Explorer II featured a brand new movement – one never before seen in any other Rolex model – the caliber 3187, and also featured a larger, 42 mm case. With 31 jewels, a blue Parachrom hairspring, a variable inertia balance wheel, and the addition of Paraflex shock absorbers, the 3187 movement can be regarded as an improvement over the caliber 3186, which is found inside Rolex’s current GMT-Master II line of watches.
Another change that importantly helps separate the reference 216570 from the contemporary GMT-Master II is the revival of its bright orange, 24-hour hand – a trait borrowed from the original Explorer II. The amazing fake watch had its triangular-shaped 24-hour hand finished in bright orange so that cave explorers could easily differentiate between day and night when viewing their watch in low-light conditions.
Although relatively minor, the white dial option, bright orange 24-hour hand, and extra 2 mm in case diameter help make the fake watch a significant departure from Rolex’s GMT-Master II line of watches. While the contemporary GMT-Master closely resembles the modern Submariner, the Explorer II has now become a popular watch totally of its own design; and it does not resemble any other replica watch in Rolex’s current lineup.
The Explorer II became the forgotten sibling to Rolex’s GMT-Master line of watches for multiple decades; however in 2011 (for its 40th anniversary), Rolex eventually gave the Explorer II the long awaited upgrade that it deserved. This great timepiece is a modern watch that fully embraces its past and history without ever losing sight that it is a contemporary timepiece.
The life of the replica Rolex Daytona, nowadays the most popular ticket on the vintage watch market and the world’s favorite chronograph, has experienced three separate generations, defined almost totally by their individual calibers. Let’s talk about the Patrizzi Dial Daytona.
The first wave began in 1963 and went on, but failed, all the way until 1988, using the manually-wound Valjoux 72 movement. The modern era models, released in 2000, are fitted with Rolex’s own in-house Cal. 4130 like the hottest chronograph on the market.
There was a 12-year span in between where the brand’s flagship racer was driven by another third-party mechanism—arguably the first automatic chronograph engine ever made; the El Primero from Swiss neighbors Zenith. It was the first of the fake rolex Daytonas, as they became unofficially known, that eventually put the watch on the map and started the insatiable feeding frenzy that we associate with the Cosmograph today.
Therefore, it finally led to patience-defying waiting lists and incredible premiums charged for those wanting to cut in line. As the Daytona’s reputation grew, more and more people began searching out the earlier examples—and the rest is history.
Made between 1994 and 1995 used an organic varnish, the black replica model called Zapon, to protect the Daytona’s face. Unrecognized at the time, the lacquer did not offer enough coverage and, over the years, the silver outer tracks on the iconic sub dials have oxidized, turning a definite brown color as they react with UV rays. The key point to collectors, the changes do not stabilize and continue to take effect the older the watch gets. It means every one of the so-called Patrizzi dials is special and, in the world of classic Rolex, unique equals expensive.
Due to their inherent rarity, it is the Zenith Daytonas, with or without a Patrizzi dial, which are currently representing a better bet for collectors than the very latest models. Visually almost identical to the contemporary example, the luxury replica watch is also the last all-steel reference sold without a Cerachrom bezel. The closest you can get to that classic effect within the modern range is with the white gold pieces, at a significantly higher price point.
Certainly, if you do manage to get your hands on a Patrizzi dial Daytona, it stands for one of the most rock solid investment potentials of them all. A beloved replica watch, with a relative mere handful of examples displaying the unique flaw, its stock is only going to keep on rising. If you get the opportunity, you could do a lot worse than securing yourself one sooner rather than later.
Last time, we’ve discussed sport replica watches and dive watches in fairly great details, but this time we’re going to focus on great fake watches that are ideal for summer living at the beach.
Whether you spend your summers at a historic family cabin in Cape Cod or on the wet and wild beaches of Miami, these cheap replica watches are sure to keep up with you wherever you are. Some are water resistant, others are not, but what they have in common is that they’re all perfect for the casual summer months when your biggest concern is ‘do I want one or two marshmallows in my smore?’
NATO straps are all the rages come in summer and this watch is based around the strap with inspiration from the American flag. A perfect 4th of July fashion statement, Daniel Wellington has amassed a following by the preppy crowds and southern gentlemen. Normally I am strongly against gold plating and tone, but a summer replica watch isn’t intended to last generations. For $195 you’ll be happy if it lasts a couple of seasons with daily wear. Let’s face it; you may work at a desk year round but come summer holidays you’re on a boat, frolicking in the sand and chopping wood for the bonfire at night. This is not the time to wear a fake Patek Philippe, no matter how good it might look.
This incredibly thin, minimalistic face is a perfect testament to the classic preppy fashions we know and love in the summer months. Pair it with your Raybans and Kiel James Patrick anchor bracelet and you’ll be ready to go. Plus, all the straps are interchangeable so you can easily throw it on a black leather strap to make it the perfect dress watch for dinner at the club.
Known for its seriously tough watches, up until now Hublot’s relationships have been suitably macho, hooking up with the likes of Manchester United, Miami Heat and Formula 1. But while these may appeal – very successfully – on a tribal level, Replica Hublot is now turning to a modern man’s love of craftsmanship rather than just performance and has joined forces with luxury menswear brand Berluti in a project – appropriately enough – with its Classic Fusion range.
Before showing you guys my picks for this Hublot replica top 3, I want to say a few words about the popularity drop. Time to show you guys my current Hublot replica top 3 picks. First and foremost, I think this goes beyond the replica watches world. Hublot just doesn’t have the reputation it did a while ago.
Secondly, and this is possibly the most significant aspect to consider, a perfect Hublot replica watch is very hard to find (at a reasonable price at least). I searched for it and nothing even close. Just thus you know, I’ve gotten many compliments on it over time. Oh, and I’m not talking about a Replica Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari replica here, which is as easy to replicate as a Urwerk or Greubel Forsey double tourbillon, no, I’m talking about relatively normal designs. Let me give you an example. Someone asked me recently about a Hublot Juventus replica. Some carbon fiber, skeletonized dial, but nothing that can’t be done considering the experience replica factories has today. Obviously, Juventus is an Italian soccer team, but nevertheless, actually cool black and white design, I have to admit that.
This baby has, as an genuine, about 100 variations, which means about 100 combinations of colors, straps dials and thus on. Funny I didn’t notice by now that all my picks were black. But ultimately, why should I complain, they all look crisp and I think it’s an image we are used to seeing from a Hublot replica watch. When wearing this Hublot replica watch, the last thing you should worry about is being called out with a fake, just think about it, who actually has the time and memory to keep track of them all? I’ll tell you – absolutely no one.
The movement is a Japanese automatic, precise and with a decent power reserve thus I can’t actually complain about paying around 300$ for a 100K watch. I don’t know about you, but I think this baby here actually kills it. I like the red accents on the dial that give it such a distinct look, completed by the red stitching on the strap. This is a Hublot clone you don’t actually want to strut around with, but then again, I don’t imagine many people actually seeing it in person.
Hublot Replica No.3 – Carbon Big Bang
In both cases the process is done by hand, which means that each strap and dial is unique. The watches themselves come in matching presentation boxes that are objects of beauty in their own right – and as Keats says, a thing of beauty is a joy forever.
I wrote a little while ago about a replica Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio, one that simply blew me away. It was an all black Ceramica that instantly made it to my top 5 Panerai replica watches. You may wonder what does that have to do with this post… Well, I’m a big, big Panerai fan and of course I added a new one to my collection, one that will be the star of this photo review.
Not merely it’s been three months since the last Panerai replica review on my blog (a Panerai ceramic replica), but it’s been over a month since the last time I reviewed a watch on my blog. So, with a little help from my cousin, I’m happy to bring you a new version of my video reviews, crisp and modern, more dynamic but I won’t spoil it, I’ll let you guys see for yourselves.
Anyway, I kept postponing because I’ve been working on the blog, I want to change a few thing here and there, especially on the videos. And no, it’s not a Panerai Luminor replica – it’s the Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio aka Radiomir Firenze aka PAM 604. Oh, and I have a bit of a surprise for you guys. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve gotten tired of the same white background and after I’ve been looking back through them, I found the videos well… not boring but I felt there’s room for improvement. If I remember well, it was a champagne dial Day Date with a little bling on the side. But enough chit chat, let’s have a look at this awesome Panerai watch replica.
The stunningly engraved stainless steel case looks adds a vintage touch to the whole design, but hey, that’s what Radiomirs are all about. Although I’m quite sure that the engraving wasn’t done by hand, the end result is impressing. Ultimately, it’s part of the whole vintage charm that this timepiece oozes. If we were to put Panerai replica vs original side by side, there actually isn’t much difference to be honest.
Panerai Replica Movement
This is one of the things that set apart a Panerai watch replica from all others – the movements. As I said in the beginning of this post, not merely does the PAM 604 cost around 20K, which is about three times more than the Panerai Luminor Arktos price, but you have to fly over to Italy to get it. Whether it’s hand-wound or kinetic, they’re all awesome to look at through the back case (where that’s possible), being small works of art in their own right. The genuinely is done completely by hand, thus you’d expect some rough edges here and there.
Well, the verdict is that this is a cool, truly one of a kind Panerai watch replica and even if it’s not exactly your kind of watch, I think one must give credit where credit is due and this baby deserves it. This Radiomir Firenze clearly is one of the coolest watches out there, on par with the black Panerai Ceramica replica I reviewed here, which is perhaps the coolest Panerai Luminor replica out there.
Just like many don’t know how to spot a fake Panerai Luminor because most replicas do a great job at cloning every detail right, I think is just as hard as being called out with a fake with this baby. And the Japanese movement that powers this baby is no different. It keeps perfect time and the power reserve lasts easily over a day. Not many get to see one, as opposed to your average Panerai Luminor Marina replica which again, not easy to spot as a fake if you don’t know exactly where to look at.
Ultimately, I have no reason not to be satisfied. Awesome looking case, great feeling leather strap and one of the best movements’ automatic movements I’ve seen lately. Even if you’re not the greatest admirer of the brand, the replica Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio is perhaps the best place to start because at just 42mm, it sits well on any kind of wrist. That being said let me know how you like it in the comments section below.
As the SIHH is coming, which is the abbreviation of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie? And the SIHH will open on the next January 18 in Geneva, replica Panerai will show us one of its fashionable 2016 models: the type Radiomir with a white dial which was first made in the 1940s.

The hour markers are separated by the minute’s orbit which is moving to the surface center, to be close to the end of the pointer, which not only salutes to the eternal laws of the classical watchmaking, but also deduces essence of the wrist watch with elegant modern style. However, the replica watch with blue dial from Rolex replica is also a good choice for female to wear, especially the Rolex Datejust 31 Ref.178240 blue watch, which looks casual and sporty at the same time, and it is more suitable to wear in summer days. As a timepiece maker it is a fascinating company that has done a lot and gained a laudable amount of popularity for a high-end exclusive watch maker.
