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.

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.

As its name states Hublot Black Magic is surely a watch that can create an impression. You can be sure to stand out with this superb accessory and make quite an impression among your peers. This is due to its superb design and of course the fact that it comes from a high end brand. A 44 mm microblasted ceramic case that is meant to impose, a bezel with titanium screws, carbon dial with a satin finish and rhodium polished elements and self-winding chronograph movement are just a few of the things that make this watch pop among others in its style. It has a simple design at first glance but once you get to know the elements better you notice new lines and a sort of intricacy among its minimal approach.

Unfortunately not all can afford such a fancy watch and most people out there are always looking for a good replica. But good replicas can be pretty hard to find, especially in a market where price dictates clientele so companies do whatever they can to keep costs down. There are, however, replicas that might be great watches and will definitely stand out from the other low end replicas.

Here we have a original watch and an fake Big Bang Black Magic Hublot put next to each other for comparison. There are three differences between the two watches and the first one that is more noticeable is on the date. The date background on the replica watch is white with black writing while the background on the original Hublot Black Magic is black with white writing. Another difference between the watches is noticeable at each hour marking. They make a bigger contrast with the background on the original watch and are also a different style on the replica Hublot. The last difference between these watches can be found on the case of the watch. The original watch has precious stones on the case which are very close to each other, however there seems to be a bigger gap between them on the replica watch but this is only noticeable when closely inspecting the watch.

This TAG Heuer Formula 1 Kimi Raikkonen watch pays tribute to the latest in a great line of fantastic Finnish race drivers, specifically the formula one champion, Kimi Raikkonen. Like Mika Hakkinen before him, Kimi Raikkonen dominated the Formula 1 circuit scoring pole positions and finishing first in some of the most technically difficult race tracks across the world. The original watch comes in stainless steel with great water and shock resistance, meant to satisfy the pickiest customers in terms of sport watches.

Here we have two watches, one replica watch and the original TAG Heuer Formula 1 Kimi Raikkonen; the replica watch is done really well but there are still some elements that indicate the fact that this watch is still just a replica. The first noticeable difference between the two watches can be seen on the upper part of the face, there the watch has the date but the original watch is slightly different than the replica watch. The original watch has a bigger date on the display while the replica watch features a smaller date that is even hard to notice. However, all the other elements around the date are the same size they should be, making the date window hard to spot.

Another difference between the replica watch and the original watch is the left chronograph which has different numbers than the one on the original. The chronograph features the following numbers: 0, 05, 15 and 20 while the replica watch has a chronograph that features numbers 0, 10, 20,30. Another difference that is similar to this one can be seen on the stopwatch at the bottom of the watch. The original stopwatch has numbers 0, 1, 2, 3 going to 9 while the replica watch has numbers going from 10, 20, 30 to 90on its stopwatch. This difference can be noticed easily if the watches are put side by side and only at a closer inspection; however, it shouldn’t be a problem. Other than these three differences the watch seems to be alright and it has all the elements needed to be quite similar with the original. For example, the strap imitates very well the rubber strap that is featured on the original watch and it also has the logo and the brand name on it. Another thing that was done great on this replica is the finish on the bezel and other metallic accents that are very similar to the ones on the original TAG Heuer.

Hublot Big Bang Luna Rossa

Hublot Big Bang Luna Rossa

The beautiful limited edition Hublot Big Bang Luna Rossa is definitely a great accessory to wear and an amazing sight to those who love high end watches. The watch comes with a 44 mm ceramic dial with Kevlar inserts and only has 1000 pieces available. So if you want to wear this superb watch you will probably need to hurry.

Authentic 301.CM.131.RX Big Bang Luna Rossa

This special edition watch is unfortunately only for those who can afford it. Made with black carbon fiber dial with luminescent hands and applied hour markers but also with a ceramic bezel the watch might seem simple but it’s far from it. Its design allows the wearer to opt for all kinds of styles while wearing the accessory and makes for a perfect gift to younger men looking for something that is a bit more unconventional.

The rugged design of the watch will make it appeal mostly to men who appreciate rough and more rectangular design. The metallic finish is another detail that shows this watch is made particularly for men who appreciate Spartan design: simplicity with minimal lines, few materials and an eye for detail resulting in a complex watch that manages to stand out.

However such an amazing watch is only a dream for most people since its price can mean a fortune for the average person.  This is why there are many replica watches out there but one must watch out for a lot of them since they can have a lot of elements different from the original. Here we have put two watches side by side for comparison. The differences between the replica and the original are clear: we can easily see that the markings on the left and bottom chronograph are white on the replica and a combination of red and white on the original watch. Another color difference is on the crown which is silver on the original watch but black on the replica. The same difference is on the buttons on the side which are also darker on the replica.  When it comes to contrasts the watch date is black with white background on the replica while the exact opposite on the original. Also the screws on the case are making a stronger contrast on the replica than on the original watch.

If you are looking for a classic watch, Cartier Santos 100 is definitely the best you can buy. What’s great about this watch is the fact that it doesn’t feature a crazy design that may be hard to combine with outfits, but instead has a really elegant and quite a retro touch to it. The watch is also very popular for its timeless feel but also the fact that it features a square face rather than a rounded classic model. Also, it comes with a beautiful comfortable strap that only adds to the retro look and makes this watch a perfect fit for an older man or someone who is a bit more sophisticated.

The watch has been put side by side with the original brand so that we can see what to expect when buying a replica and how much it resembles the original. The first noticeable difference is the finish on the metal parts that can be found under the bezel; they seem to be a different shade and a lot smoother on the original watch. The replica watch features a rather rougher design that has a lighter color and doesn’t have the carbon look the original watch has.

The next difference can be seen if we look at the whole design on the face of the watch; we will notice that the replica watch features elements that are smaller and less crowded, so the design around the hour markings can be clearly seen. This doesn’t happen with the original watch where it seems that the chronographs are actually covering the edges. Actually, some people might prefer the replica watch in this case, while other might find the original watch to have a more interesting look. The chronographs have visible differences when compared with the ones on the original watch. The first chronograph, the one on the left shows the numbers correctly on both watches, but the lower chronograph and the one on the right don’t. The chronograph on the bottom has the following numbers on the original brand: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 while the one on the original watch has other numbers. The same goes for the chronograph that can be seen on the left.

Speaking of chronographs it seems that the design on the replica watch makes them stand out more as they have a darker edge, while the ones on the original watch have a softer edge.
