A pretentious and very luxurious watch, the Portofino Chronograph is definitely an interesting addition to all IWC watches. This beautifully crafted accessory comes with bold lines and a sporty touch. It is made to resemble the cockpit of the famous 1960 Italian sports cars and it definitely does a great job with its beautiful materials and automatic 75329 calibre. So if you are looking for a watch that would quench your thirst for sports cars but look pretty elegant with any outfit, this particular model is the perfect watch for you. However, if you don’t have the finances necessary for such a watch, perhaps a better alternative would be to look for a replica, but not all replicas are good and here we have two watches, put side by side so that we can judge whether the replica is a good alternative.

The first difference that we notice between them is on the bracelet; on the original watch we see that there are smaller links and the pattern is much more detailed but on the replica there is a rougher design. Another problem is with the chronographs, first because they have different numbers on them and second, because they are smaller, making the markings on top and bottom seem larger than the ones on the original watch. When it comes to the numbers on them, the top chronograph has the following numbers on the original watch: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30. As it’s sometimes the case with chronograph replica watches, the numbers on subdial are different: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60; on the bottom chronograph, we see numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 on the original watch but numbers 20, 40 and 60 on the replica watch.

The chronometer on the watch also seems to have different numbers and while on the original watch it only shows 60, IWC replica watch has a chronometer with 3, 6, 9, and 12 written on it. The last difference between these watches is the seconds hand as it has a slightly different design on the replica, but nothing major. Besides that, these are all the differences that we can see between these two watches.

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.

The Ferrari Granturismo GMT is definitely a perfect watch for the car enthusiast, but at the same time it can be worn by someone who simply wants to wear something casual and easy to combine with various outfits. This beautiful timepiece however, may only be available for those who are able to afford it because it can get pretty expensive. With the great technology behind it and its amazing look it’s obvious why anyone would want to wear such a beautiful piece. This is why many people are always looking for replicas of it, they are more affordable and they practically look and feel the same, so there’s nothing lost if they don’t get the original. Of course, the original is more prestigious, but a good replica can pass as a good high quality watch that is meant for those with a social high status.

Here there are two watches that have been put side by side so that you could check out the differences between them as one is a replica and the other is an original watch. But this time we only have one difference between the watches, which makes this replica a pretty good one and very similar with the original watch. Even the leather strap looks and seems to feel the same as the comfortable leather strap on the original.

Also, the colors on the dial and the outer bezel are just like the ones on the original so this watch manages to mimic the shades perfectly even if, perhaps, it doesn’t uses the same materials. However, the one element that sets these two watches apart can be found on the upper part of the dial, next to 12 o’clock. There we can see the Ferrari logo on both watches but the difference between them is the fact that it doesn’t have similar design. On the imitation watch we can see a logo that is barely sketched, and the inside of it is not filled with color, while on the original watch the logo is definitely bolder and stands out a lot with its complete color and brighter shade.

The IWC Bit Pilot is not just a watch, but a very sturdy accessory that will definitely prove useful in tough times; created for a pilot, this watch encompasses roughness under great technology.  If you are one of the men who prefer a reliable watch, but with a simpler design, this watch is surely what you need. Made with the best materials and having a nice, smooth design, you will certainly appreciate it on your wrist in any situation. So, it’s no wonder why there are replica watches of this model available, but not all are great, and some may have big differences that can be hardly overlooked.

IWC Big Pilot Chronograph

Here we have two watches, one a replica and the other an original model; we will compare them and see what the differences between them are. The first difference that we see is on the hour markings; they are slightly different on the replica watch, but not extremely noticeable. It seems that the original watch has very thick numbers for each hour, however the replica watch has numbers with a much thinner design. The next difference between the two watches is the design of the chronographs; on the replica watch they have thicker numbers and they are more in depth than on the replica watch.

Another difference between these watches is noticeable on the top chronograph, which seems to have different numbers than the one on the original watch. The chronograph on the replica watch has numbers 4, 8 and 12 written on it, but the chronograph on the original watch has numbers 10, 20 and 30 written on it. The same happens with the left chronograph where we can easily see that there are different numbers; the numbers on the replica watch are 06, 08 and 10 but on the original watch we have the following sequence of numbers: 20, 40 and 60. The last difference between these two watches is also on a chronograph, this time on the bottom chronograph; on the replica watch the chronograph has the following numbers: 6, 12, 18, and 24 but on the original watch it has numbers: 3, 6, 9 and 10.

Breitling as well as Bentley, is a brand that took its craft to a new level of excellence combining passion and expertise into the very best products that can be found on the market. It would only make sense that the two brands come together and create something absolutely amazing.

The Breitling for Bentley super sports Limited Edition is one of those watches that transcends the boundaries of its field and becomes a totally unique and priceless item. It is a tribute to the Bentley Continental Supersports, the fastest and most impressive car ever released by Bentley. The watch through its amazing design perfectly symbolizes the car’s amazing technological feats, its classic style and its amazing speed and performance.

Authentic A266B22SP Bentley Super Sports Limited Edition

This amazing watch does, however, come at quite a steep price, one that few people in the world could afford. If you simply must have this amazing time piece replica pieces are a great alternative, one that can save you quite a lot of money while producing the same result.

While replicas where considered poorly made in the past, today’s models are quite decent and with some rare exceptions can offer a high quality imitation watch that is basically uindistinguishable from the original.

Fake A266B22SP Bentley Super Sports Limited Edition done

Here we have two watches, the original Breitling for Bentley Super Sports Limited edition and a replica. While both watches look similar there are some differences:

To begin with, the sub-dials have different markings. While the original sub-dial located at three o’clock has the 20, 40 and 60 markings, the replica has 12, 4 and 8. It’s the same thing with the sub-dial located at nine o’clock. The original has every even number between 4 and 12, the replica has numbers 1 through 7. The hands on the sub-dials are also reversed in the replica.

A striking difference is the design of the seconds hand. While the original has a small red arrow at the end, the replica arrow is larger and has a white interior. Another difference can be found on the date function. The replica has black markings while the date function on the original Breitling comes with red date markings.

The bezel of the watch is also quite different in the two watches. The replica bezel is made of smooth stainless steel while the bezel on the original watch comes with a textured molding that replicates the marks on a race tire, more specifically like the ones used on the Bentley Continental.
