I am a huge fan of silver Rolex watches. You got to love its understated elegance and beauty! And one of my favorite silver color Rolex is the Daytona with the red seconds hand and the black and red sub-dials. I think that the thrilling red and black contrast over the calm silver dial is a very nice and interesting touch. It completely changes the looks of this classic watch.

If you are also an enthusiast of this gorgeous Rolex Daytona with silver dial and black and red small dials then I am pretty sure you need a reliable guideline for buying a good replica. Keep reading to see how you can turn a risky purchase into a satisfactory one just by paying attention at the details. Comparison is everything in this business and what better way to get an almost identical knockoff if not buy comparing every part of the original watch with the one of the fake?

Authentic White Daytona

I always take a good look at the dial. This is the more obvious part of the watch so it has to be very correctly imitated. The hour markers must be silvery with a very clean and simple look. And pay attention to the silver crown logo located at 12 o’clock. As you can see in the photo of the replica, the 5 peeks of the crown are too slim and the circular bottom hole is quite large. These 5 peeks should be fuller and the circular bottom hole should be smaller. Next, the minutes and hours hands should have a nice rounded top and not such a pointy one as the fake has. Usually replica manufacturers get the markings of the small tree dials right, but adding the correct outside and inside margins is a totally different thing. These should be very discrete, but the knockoff uses silver, thick circles which look very tacky and unaesthetic.

Rolex Daytona Imitation

Next, study the shine of the stainless steel. The original Rolex Daytona has a polished case and a bracelet with both brushed and polished links. These enhance its elegance. Unfortunately, replicas do not always clone this detail correctly. For example, in this photo we can clearly see that the imitation watch has an all brushed case and bad. There is no shine to the stainless steel and as a result of this; the whole knockoff looks dull and fake.

To make sure you end up buying a good quality Rolex Daytona replica watch, just follow the above example. It shows you all the important steps for making a correct and thorough comparison between the authentic watch and the fake one.

Big Bang Ayrton Senna Foundroyante Limited Edition

This lovely Hublot Big Bang Ayrton Senna is a limited edition watch that has a unique touch to it. It comes with superb elements and manages to be one of the most exclusive and popular watches from Hublot despite the small number of watches produced. The watch has been created in association with the Senna Institute and is a celebration of this famous racing driver who died in an accident in 1994. However, he has been one of the best racing drivers out there and this is the reason why Hublot wanted to create a watch in his memory. The watch looks absolutely astonishing and has been created with an interesting concept in mind, having “invisible visibility”.

Genuine Big Bang Hublot

Another interesting detail of the watch is the fact that it has the signature of the champion on the dial, which adds a great touch to the whole design. This is definitely a watch every collector has dreamed of. It comes with a 44.5 mm case in brushed polished black ceramic with a matt black ceramic bezel that has the famous H shaped titanium screws. The dial also has black nickel applique indices and numerals and a titanium back with sapphire crystal.

It’s hard to refuse yourself such an amazing watch but the average person out there might have a problem actually getting to buy it. First, because of its price which isn’t a piece of cake for many and second, because it might not be available anymore due to the fact that it’s limited edition.

Replica Big Bang

Fortunately, there are replicas available out there and these replicas can look and feel just like the original watch. Here we have a replica put side by side with an original to see the differences between them.
Actually the whole design on the replica is a bit off as it has different numbers for the chronographs and also has a bigger design and different fonts for the numbering. The numbers for the minutes, right near the case are also smaller and bolder than the ones on the original. One particular difference is on the date which seems to be on white background with black writing on the replica but non-existent on the original. Also, the markings for each hours are yellow and slimmer on the replica but grey and stubbier on the original watch. The last difference is on the side buttons which are flatter on the replica when compared to the original watch.

The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph is truly a remarkable watch; this beautiful accessory doesn’t just stand out through its craftsmanship but also the technology behind it. It is water resistant to 12 bars and has a beautiful finish that will surely attract compliments.  The watch has beautiful features such as a bracelet quick change system, lovely luminescent elements on various parts of it and a mechanical chronograph movement.

genuine IWC timepiece

Due to the fact that this watch has been so popular over the years and has been such an amazing tool for both casual users and hardcore sports aficionados, it has become one of the biggest replicated watches. Here is a replica of this watch and the watch itself, both put out for comparison so that we can see whether it is actually worth to buy a replica of it.

The first difference that we notice between these two timepieces is the fact that the crown is a bit narrower on the replica watch even if the other buttons are the same size as the ones on the original.

Fake IWC Watch

The second difference that you will notice is on the bottom chronograph; this chronograph shows numbers 6 and 12 on the original watch, but on the replica watch the numbers shown are 12 and 24. The next problem that you will encounter on this replica is the fact that the left chronograph shows numbers 09 and 12 instead of numbers 60 and 30 like in the original watch. Also, the upper chronograph seems to have the same problem as what we mentioned before; it seems that the upper chronograph on the replica watch features the following numbers: 12 and 6. However, the chronograph on the original watch has numbers 30 and 15 written on it. Besides the problems with the crown shape and the numbers written on the chronographs there are no other differences between the replica IWC Aquatimer Chronograph and the original timepiece. The colors seem to be the same, the proportions are also right on the replica so it’s up to the buyer whether they believe this watch has good potential or not.

Rolex Black Submariner

The Rolex Submariner is one of the greatest watches of all time. It is a true symbol of sophistication and luxury, even though at its core it is a diving watch. This beautiful watch has walked a long way from a professional diving instrument to a fashion accessory of extreme elegance. How is this possible? Well, when you’re a Rolex, everything is possible. Add a few delicate and stylish lines, work out the colors and choose more expensive and glamorous materials. The result can take your breath away.

Rolex Submariner Black Dial

Obviously, a Rolex Submariner is a very high end and expensive watch. It is what it is. We might love it, know everything about its history, looks and functionality, but we will probably never afford the real deal. Instead, we can always count on the replica watches industry. When it comes to cloning the hottest watches of all time, fake manufacturers really know what they are doing. This is why, for us, finding good quality replica watches gets easier by the day.

There is still a large window of possibilities out there and when it comes to our money, we should always choose wisely. The key for finding a replica store that sells really good fake watches is to research the web intensively and compare their products until you find the best source. One of the essential steps here is comparing the replica watch with the original Rolex Submariner. Simply take every picture you find of the knockoff and study the small details of the watch, just as I am doing below.

Fake Rolex Submariner

The replica from this picture has a very authentic looking dial. The color, glow and texture is just right; the hour markers have the correct size, shape, position and luminescent coating, the texts on the dial use the appropriate font and are spelled correctly, the hands are nicely shaped and feature luminescent coating to improve night legibility, and the crown logo is correctly shaped and sized. On most Rolex designs, this crown logo that is located at 12 o’clock is larger replacing the hour marker, but on the Submariner it’s a totally different story. There is a triangle shaped hour marker above it and the logo has just the function of an authenticity marking.

It is also obvious that the hour window has the correct magnification lens, of 2.5X. Poor quality replicas usually use a 1.5X Cyclops lens which looks cheap and fake.

What I do not like about the knockoff we see in this picture is the bezel. Sure, it has the silver triangle and white dot at 12 o’clock, the correct indexes, but I do not like how these are etched. You can see at the “0”s and at the “1” that these aren’t straight and equally think. Some of them seem to be smudged. Of course, it could be an illusion due to the protective plastic that is usually covering the bezel, but it just does not look right to me.

If you want to be safe while buying replica watches online just remember to study the knockoff very well before you order it. Don’t take anything for granted and you should be the lucky owner of a very authentic looking Rolex Submariner replica watch.

Rolex Deepsea

Rolex DeepSea is known as the best diving watch in the world. Its story started as a challenge. Rolex wanted to design a watch that could submerge in the deepest points of the ocean and still tell perfect time. This is surely not a very easy thing to do as pressure that high applies a very large force to any object, especially to something as fragile as an automatic mechanism watch with a crystal over its dial. What started out as an experiment was turned by Rolex into a legend. In 1960 captain Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard succeeded in diving to a shocking depth of 10,916 meters. The Rolex Deep Sea Challenge was placed at the exterior of Batchyscaphe Trieste and it completed its mission beautifully. The watch returned unharmed and it is now a symbol of extreme excellence.

Authentic Rolex Deepsea

Over the years, the fame and glory of the Rolex Deepsea spread and soon replica manufacturers started cloning it. Their efforts made it possible for us to find very authentic looking fake Rolex Deep Sea models online, watches that were available for purchase at very affordable prices. Still, the quality varies from store to store and we must be very careful when choosing what replica to buy. To make sure you purchase a superior quality replica that is identical to the original watch, simply follow the below guidelines.

Imitation Deepsea Rolex Submariner

These pictures will show us what the most obvious differences are. Please observe that the Rolex Deep Sea does not have a magnifying lens over the date. It has a plain sapphire crystal and the date window is in its natural size. Still, it is quite easy to read. Around the inside of the dial we read the words “ORIGINAL GAS ESCAPE VALVE” at the top and “RING LOCK SYSTEM” at the bottom. The hour markers are oversized, just like on a genuine Rolex DeepSea watch. These markers are covered with white luminescent coating to improve under water legibility. The same thing goes for the silvery hands, these are also covered with luminescent material. The dial has the following writings: “ROLEX  Oyster Perpetual Date DEEPSEA” at the top and “SEA-DWELLER 1280 ft=3900 m SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED” at the bottom. These are in the correct font and do not have any spelling errors.

I like the fact that the bezel has the correct indexes which have been nicely etched on its surface. Furthermore, the knckoff bezel imitates the right shine and the unique silver triangle with white dot from the 12 o’clockposition. The stainless steel is completely brushed just as the original Rolex DeepSea is on the case, winding crown and bracelet.

By comparing these two watches, I wasn’t able to find any noticeable differences. This Rolex DeepSea replica watch is indeed a very accurate knockoff. I am pretty sure it could fool almost anyone with its authentic look.

Sometimes, finding a good quality replica can be extremely difficult and challenging.  There are countless replica stores out there and each one offers a very large selection of replica watches, but from store to store the quality varies greatly. If only there would be a way to identify the reputable companies and more important: the high quality fake watches. Luckily for us, there is a way to protect our money from bad investments. If we first research the market, understand the particularities and important functions of the designer watch we love, and we make a thorough comparison between the original model and the replica we are considering buying then we have a high chance of purchasing an exact replica of superior quality.

genuine daytona for comparison

For instance, this Rolex Daytona with gold dial and two tone case and band can be quite tricky for replica manufacturers to correctly clone it. If you take a moment to examine the watch closely you will soon understand why. It has that beautiful champagne dial with matte surface that reflects the light so elegantly. Most replica watches fail in reproducing the exact same tone of champagne gold and its flawless texture. Usually on fakes, this type of dial will be either too shinny or too dull. It is very hard to get it right. The small three counters of this champagne dial Rolex Daytona are in the same color as the dial, but have a circular outlined surface. Also, on the outer margin each sub-dial has a slim polished ring and at the inside it has a black one. The markers are black and these display at the 3 o’clock counter: 10, 20 and 30 minutes, at 6 o’clock 20, 40 and 60 seconds and at 9 o’clock 3, 6, 9 and 12 hours. Most replicas will show the correct markers for these three dials, but will not have the inner black ring which separates the gradations from the plain center.

Daytona Knockoff

If you are considering buying this model then you should also pay attention to the hour markers. These should be identical to the original watch in all aspects. As you can see in the photos of the replica, one has diamonds markers just like the real watch while the other has luminescent dots. Also, the size is very important. The diamond markers should almost fit the space between the larger seconds indexes. They seem more spaced apart from the upper index.

You should also check the shine of the band. The bracelet is two tone. The silver surfaces are brushed while the gold ones are polished.

So you see when you’re informed and ready to invest your time and effort into comparing the replica watch with the genuine one, you are already on the right track of finding a very good quality replica watch that has a very authentic look, one that could fool even a trained eye.

Panerai went in partnership with Ferrari and managed to create beautiful watches that are not only loved by watch aficionados but also by those who simply love cars, especially race cars. These watches are in limited edition and it’s normal that their value will increase in time, making them classic beauties in terms of sports themed watches.Since most high end watch manufacturers have managed over the years to associate themselves with various car manufacturers, Panerai managed to do a great job with this beautiful stylish watch that will definitely be a great accessory for any outfit out there.

Also, if you demand great precision with amazing technology behind it, this watch is also a great way to make sure that you are always on time in the most sophisticated way. However, some might not afford this particular watch because it is, after all, a high end watch and spending two monthly wages or more on it might not appeal to most of us. In this case, there’s always the possibility of getting a replica watch as they are always a great addition to any wardrobe if the customer manages to get one that is very similar with the original.

Fake Panerai Ferrari Scuderia

Here, we have put two watches side by side so that you can see the differences between them and make sure that you make the right decision when it comes to buying a good replica watch. The two watches are differentiated by two elements. The first element that we can see clearly in the pictures is the date on the watches; the design of the replica watch date is a bit different, a bit darker than the one on the original watch. Also, it’s slightly bigger, making the number 3 at 3 o’clock look a little squeezed in the space assigned. Because of that, all the numbers on the watch have been made smaller. Another thing that is different when it comes to these watches is the minute marking dial in the middle of the main dial. There, you can see that the dial stands out more on the replica watch and also has another size, which also affects the overall design a bit.
