A symbol of purity. A perpetual pleasure to wear. The suave successor in the Swiss made fake RM 037 collection, this new interpretation in white ceramic is the latest addition to the 1:1 best fake Richard Mille women’s collection. This model combines white ceramic, mother-of-pearl, and white gold for the very first time in a gently voluptuous combination. A lengthy, delicate machining and diamond grinding process is required to create the complex shapes of the white ATZ ceramic bezel and case back showcased by a matte finish. This ATZ ceramic is based on aluminum oxide powder tubes injected at a pressure of 2,000 bar. This high-pressure injection increases rigidity by 20-30% and reduces the material’s porosity to an absolute minimum. Hypo-allergenic and one of the hardest materials in the world after diamond, ATZ ceramic is valued for its remarkable resistance to scratches, shocks, and abrasion, as well as for its eternal whiteness, making it the perfect material for a watch case.
The warm shine on the highly polished rim highlights the tonneau-shaped case. The pillars, which are also polished, accentuate the supreme elegance of the satin white gold caseband. The overall effect is further heightened by the mother-of-pearl and diamonds embellishing the dial.
The two push-buttons in polished white gold are respectively attributed to setting the date and the above-listed functions. The architecture of the crown, featuring a patented stem-crown assembly, guarantees complete protection; no longer connected to the watch movement, it is instead part of the case, removing all risk of snapping.
The mechanism makes it possible to admire every detail of the automatic Richard Mille CRMA1 calibre and its red-gold variable-geometry rotor, visible through the sapphire glass. This piece, whose whiteness is equaled only by its purity, has all the technical characteristics that ensure this collection is held in high regard, beginning with its skeletonized automatic-winding in-house movement. With a baseplate and bridges in black PVD-treated grade 5 titanium, it has an oversize date display at 12 o’clock as well as a function selector at 4 o’clock, used to select between winding (W), neutral (N) and hand setting (H) actions without having to touch the crown.
In addition to its highly desirable, brand-specific architecture and functionality, the unparalleled sophistication of the elegant and refined RM 037 Automatic in white ceramic makes it an astute addition to the women’s watch range. It is available exclusively in 5-star Online Store.
The L.U.C collection picks up the aesthetic codes of the finest Asian craftsmanship.
While the Western world has celebrated the arrival of 2021 a few days ago, China traditionally has a different calendar and Chinese New Year commences on the 12th of February, welcoming the Year of the Metal Ox. Multiple luxury and high-end watch brands will participate in the commemorations by introducing timepieces with an Ox theme – knowing the importance of the Chinese market, this still makes complete sense. Part of them is Chopard, which is launching two L.U.C watches, one displaying the traditional Chinese timekeeping system – Shí Chen – and the other picking up the aesthetic codes of the finest Asian craftsmanship – Urushi lacquer. Meet the new fake Chopard L.U.C watches for the Chinese Year of the Ox.
Each year since 2013, Chopard has dedicated a L.U.C timepiece to the concurrent symbol in the Chinese zodiac. The concept is invariably developed on the basis of the ultra-thin L.U.C XP watches; graced with a dial featuring the Urushi technique of Maki-e combining lacquer and gold powder; always features a highly symbolic setting, and always produced as an 88-piece limited series. This year, Chopard adds a second watch to the collection, with an allegory of beliefs related to the Chinese zodiac and luck. It represents the first time that a watch displays Shí Chen, the traditional Chinese time system, as a complication.
THE L.U.C XP URUSHI SPIRIT OF SHÍ CHEN
As said, the L.U.C XP Urushi Spirit of Shí Chen is a first in high-end watchmaking. While the watch retains the traditional Western display of the time with the central hours and minutes hands, here crafted in gold with the signature L.U.C shape, the dial includes a new complication. It consists of twelve two-hour units, each one represented by an animal from the zodiac cycle. The day thus begins at 11pm with the hour of the Rat and ends with the hour of the Pig, while noon is in the middle of the hour of the Horse. The signs are seen through a large display between 10 and 2 o’clock (a rotating disc underneath the dial), enabling a dual time read-off: one traditional and the other based on the international system.
Faithful to Asian traditions, Chopard relies on Master lacquer specialist Minori Koizumi to create the dial and secondary disc of the best replica L.U.C XP Urushi Spirit of Shí Chen. All 88 dials are made according to the traditional Urushi lacquer technique, with the distinctive Maki-e technique, where gold flakes are sprinkled between the layers of lacquer. In addition to the applied gold numerals and markers, the dial also features an embossed emblem representing the god Lu Ying, who is one of the three deities – together with Fu Xing and Shou Xing – respectively dedicated to prosperity, happiness and longevity.
The 88-piece limited watch is housed in a 40mm case made from ethical 18-carat rose gold with a height of only 8.28mm. A classic black alligator strap gives this piece an elegant style, with great contrast between the gold and black elements. Inside is the in-house automatic calibre L.U.C 96.29-L, an exclusive variant of the well-known ultra-thin Calibre 96 with micro-rotor (in ethical 22-carat gold) and twin-barrel architecture for 65 hours of power reserve. It will be priced at EUR 37,800.
Quick facts: 40mm diameter x 8.28mm height – 18k ethical rose gold – sapphire crystals front and caseback – 30m water-resistant – calibre L.U.C 96.29-L, in-house, automatic, micro-rotor, 65h power reserve, 4Hz – hours, minutes, 24h disc with the 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac – black alligator leather strap in pin buckle – Dial hand-crafted in Japan using the Urushi lacquer technique – Ref. 161980-5001, limited to 88 pieces – EUR 37,800
THE L.U.C XP URUSHI YEAR OF THE OX
The second timepiece offered by Chopard, the quality fake L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox, is a more traditional take on the Chinese New Year watch. Indeed, no exotic complications here, as we’ll just find a display of the hours and minutes, classically displayed by central gold hands. The focus on this watch, just like previous years’ editions, is on craftsmanship and decoration. The Year of the Ox, which will begin on February 12th, 2021 and end on January 31st, 2022, is at the centre of this watch, as the Ox ensures the prosperity of the soil and the crops. Once again, Chopard has worked with Japanese lacquer artisans who craft dials using the traditional Urushi lacquer technique. The dials are produced by the workshops of the century-old Yamada Heiando company. “As the Maki-e technique requires, captured between the layers of lacquer drawn from the sap of the Toxicodendron vernicifluum tree, gold flakes illuminate a background that features a golden ox with straight horns and an abundant coat, harnessed to a wagon. Made of gold, mother-of-pearl and coloured lacquer, it conveys both agricultural symbolism and the more subtle imagery of the Emperor” says Chopard.
The case of the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox retains its usual elegant and slender shape, with a 39.5mm diameter and only 6.80mm in height. It is made of 18-carat rose gold sourced from an ethical supply chain. Once again here, inside is a movement derived from the classic 96 architecture, the calibre L.U.C 96.17-L with a 3.30mm height, a gold micro-rotor and twin-barrel architecture. The watch, limited to 88 pieces, is worn on a black alligator strap and will be priced at EUR 24,500.
Quick Facts: 39.5mm diameter x 6.80mm height – 18k ethical rose gold – sapphire crystals front and caseback – 30m water-resistant – calibre L.U.C 96.17-L, in-house, automatic, micro-rotor, 65h power reserve, 4Hz – hours, minutes – black alligator leather strap in pin buckle – Dial hand-crafted in Japan using the Urushi lacquer technique – Ref. 161902-5071, limited to 88 pieces – EUR 24,500
Hublot replica is the undisputed king of collaborations, and among its most successful is the partnership with French visual neo-pop artist and sculptor Richard Orlinski. His multi-faceted designs complement perfectly the DNA of Hublot, as has been proven by many great watches. From the luxury fake Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillon Power Reserve 5 Days in sapphire to the bold red ceramic Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph, Orlinski’s style is always instantly recognizable, while the powerful Hublot-DNA stays intact. This is also the case with the time-only Classic Fusion, of which six new models are added to the collection.
White is in the spotlight of these new creations, as both the dial, as well as the strap are made in this color. The dial is also the eye-catcher of these new Hublot fake watches with white rubber strap, as they are multi-faceted in Orlinski’s signature style. On the wrist, this means that there is a constant play of light and shadows. This is not only mesmerizing but will naturally draw attention to the watch, as it is ever-changing. The Hublot logo is printed on the inside of the sapphire crystal, further enhancing the depth of the watch. To not distract from the stunning dial, Hublot opted to fit the watch with a white rubber strap.
The Classic Fusion Orlinski White is available in six different varieties. Three of them are made from King Gold, Hublot’s proprietary alloy of this precious metal, which has a warmer tone than regular red gold. The other three from titanium, which Hublot replica polishes to perfection. Orlinski redesigned the case of the Classic Fusion to match the dial. This can be enjoyed with or without a diamond-setting. Without any diamonds, the watch has a sportive look to it, in which the design of the case almost seamlessly transitions into the dial. On the partially set version of the Classic Fusion Orlinski White are the diamonds set in an asymmetrical way. This further amplifies the different angles that make this watch so unique. The ZF factory fake Hublot Classic Fusion Orlinski White is also available with a pave-setting, featuring 264 brilliant-cut diamonds, for a spectacular effect, making it no surprise why the partnership between Hublot and Orlinski is so successful.
With these two replica watches created in collaboration with, or in tribute to, contemporary and historical artists, watch manufacturers get highly personal in the time-honored tradition of using applying miniaturized artistic masterworks to their dial.
HUBLOT AND SHEPARD FAIREY
Even if you’ve never heard of Shepard Fairey, you’re familiar with his work — unless, of course, you slept through the entirety of the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign and the subsequent two terms of Barack Obama’s administration. The iconic Obama “HOPE” poster is by far the most renowned work by the L.A.-based street artist and graphic designer, whose “OBEY” project also inspired an entire clothing line. Hublot teamed with Fairey for the most recent release in its “Hublot Loves Art” series, the 45 mm fake Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey. The timepiece features the manually wound, skeletonized HUB1201 caliber, two years in development and boasting a 10-day power reserve, which made its debut in the first Meca-10 model in 2016. The Shepard Fairey edition, limited to 100 pieces each in Grey Décor and Blue Décor versions, features the artist’s Star Gear logo in the 3 o’clock aperture, which also reveals a red dot when the watch is nearing the end of its lengthy power reserve. The 45-mm case is made of carbon fiber with an upper layer of Texalium adorned with a tribal floral motif that mimics Fairey’s distinctive artistic style. Black composite resin is used for the bezel lugs and lateral inserts; polished H-shaped screws made of microblasted titanium with black PVD coating secure the bezel to the case. Fairey also provides the embossed design on the rubber-and-calf-leather straps. The price is $28,300.
TAG HEUER AND ALEC MONOPOLY
Street artist Alec Monopoly, the scarf-wearing, paint-can-wielding “Art Provocateur” whose takes both his pseudonym and his stylistic hallmark from the top-hatted tycoon character from the famous board game, has been working with TAG Heuer copy since 2016, applying his graffiti paints to the straps of special-edition watches and even designing a custom digital face for the TAG Heuer Connected Watch. The first timepiece with a physical dial designed by Monopoly (né Alec Andon) debuted in 2017 — the black rubber strap replica TAG Heuer Formula One Special Edition, which brings a miniature representation of one of Monopoly’s highly collectible canvases to the Swiss brand’s most accessible timepiece. Housed in a 41-mm brushed steel case with a polished black rotating bezel with 60-second scale, the watch sports a dial from which Mr. Monopoly (the character, not the artist), a top hat on his head and a scarf over the lower part of his face, peeks out from the dial’s center, surrounded by colorful graffiti. The artist’s “ALEC” logo is engraved on the solid caseback, under which beats a Swiss quartz movement. And even though the watch is limited to just 200 pieces, you don’t have to be one of the corporate fatcats lampooned in the artist’s work to purchase one: the Formula One Alec Monopoly Special Edition sells for just $1,250.
Four years ago, the collaboration between the French men’s fashion house Berluti and the watchmaking manufacture Hublot has given life to a series of unforgettable watches. You can see some of the other cheap AAA replica Hublot Berluti watches here on our website including the Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti Scritto Ocean Blue and Bordeaux or the Classic Fusion Berluti. Bringing together the former’s legendary Venezia leather and its patina with the latter’s art of fusion of materials, these different models have all had the Hublot Classic Fusion watch as their base. For this new reveal, the two houses have gone back to the drawing board working hand in hand with Kris Van Assche, Creative Director of Berluti, to design a model based for the first time on the iconic Big Bang Unico chronograph.
The Big Bang chronograph’s strong, unmistakable, and modern identity reflects Berluti’s new universe and lifestyle.
“The patina is our trademark, usually present in our shoes and leather goods, but all that know-how can also be used for something totally different. Bringing the Cold Brown patina —which was inspired by an archive patina and renewed through a glaçage process to obtain a rich, cutting edge colour— to the Big Bang Unico is an opportunity for Berluti’s craft to be discovered in a new context. Using our tradition and heritage ininnovative, forward thinking ways has opened up a world of possibilities.” says Kris Van Assche Creative Director of Berluti.
The final result combines an exercise in style, due to Kris Van Assche’s flair for fashion, with an amazing technical feat made possible by the expertise of our watchmakers, designers, and engineers, all of whose know-how was required to master the concepts of this new bezel. Thanks to their reputed mastery of materials, Hublot’s engineers here drew on the experience gained during previous collaborations with Berluti to be able to apply the house’s iconic Venezia leather to the Big Bang Unico’s dial.
A construction encases the leather between two pieces of sapphire glass, cut out for the first time to allow the wearer to admire the gears of the Unico movement. Thanks to a delicate process developed in collaboration with Berluti, the organic elements of the leather have been encapsulated as if frozen in time, so as to render the living beauty of the natural hide unchanging. And for this new interpretation, the Venezia leather comes in Cold Brown patina.
Another innovation: whereas on previous editions, it was only reserved for the strap and the dial, the Venezia leather in Cold Brown patina also features on the watch’s bezel. This achievement was possible thanks to the development of an all-new conception of the bezel, in two parts. Thanks to an adhesive and rigidifying resin, the first part of the bezel -in leather and around 1mm thick-is inserted onto the second part, which is a lower base in black ceramic, which is then screwed onto the case of the watch. The bezel will be able to continue taking on a patina over time, like for the watch strap that is a fusion of patina leather and rubber.
A glacé finish on it emphasizes the various brown shades composing this subtle color. This patina is the result of long and complex handwork, and each piece is unique thanks to the color variations created by this craftsmanship. Of course, at the heart of this perfect fake Hublot Big Bang watch could only be the iconic Unico manufacture movement, a chronograph with flyback function. Here, this MHUB1242 calibre beats from within a 45 mm black ceramic case and offers a 72-hour power reserve.
The best replica Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Cold Brown watch fuses the heritage of the men’s fashion house Berluti, the vision of its Creative Director Kris Van Assche, and the mastery of materials of the Hublot Manufacture. Delivered in a chest signed by the two houses, presenting the emblematic Berluti shoehorn key ring and travel case, this model will only be available in a limited edition of 100 pieces. The watch is available with a black ceramic bracelet or a brown Venezia Cold Brown leather strap.
Back in 2014, Montblanc replica introduced the Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum Worldtimer, which brought an accessible price to a traditionally expensive complication. World timers are often the darlings of Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe and the like, but Montblanc helped usher in more affordable options along with Frederique Constant and a handful of others. The new Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum heads north on the price with a limited edition 18k rose gold case and accents but offers a stunning overall package without an astronomical price. Larger than before and with a monochromatic colour palette, Montblanc’s latest limited piece is a solid entry into luxury world timers.
World time was established in 1884 (24 time zones) and it took some time for watchmakers to develop a complication to accommodate world travellers. Swiss watchmaker Louis Cottier created the first mechanism to display world time in 1930 and Vacheron Constantin capitalised on this in 1932 with a pocket watch. It has traditionally been a luxury complication for the most prestigious brands, but in recent years has become a more accessible option for business travellers. The quartz revolution in the 1980s brought this function to the masses, particularly with digital offerings, but mechanical watches still hold that desirable and unique blend of form and function.
Although we celebrate Montblanc’s timepieces here at Monochrome, the brand is arguably best known for its luxury pens. Founded in 1906, Montblanc became world-famous for its fountain pens like the iconic Meisterstück 149 launched in the 1950s. Now a subsidiary of Richemont, Montblanc’s watch division has benefited from the conglomerate’s resources and acquisition of movement manufacturer Minerva for in-house calibres. Following the original Orbis Terrarum in 2014 and slight refresh in 2016, the 2020 luxury replica Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum in 18k rose gold is the brand’s most luxurious world timer to date.
CASE & DESIGN
The 2014 world timer was well proportioned at 41mm in diameter and 12mm in height, and the new Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum doesn’t stray far from that formula. Although it’s a bit larger at 43mm in diameter and 13.84mm in height (51mm lug-to-lug), Montblanc Star Legacy replica with rose gold case still wears well without overwhelming the wrist, although you do feel the weight of the 18k rose gold case (replacing stainless steel). The polished case features a nicely machined step on the outer edges of the lugs with a rounded bezel and large onion crown.
Montblanc’s famous black and white star logo, representing the snow-covered peak of Mont Blanc (originating with its pens), sits at the crown’s end. The domed sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective coating and the sapphire exhibition caseback is secured by four external screws. The strap is a brown sfumato alligator leather with matching stitching and a rose gold pin buckle. Water-resistance is rated at 50 metres, sufficient considering the vocation of this 43 mm Montblanc fake watch.
DIAL & FUNCTIONALITIES
The dial is the star of the show, updated from the 2016 model, with dual rotating discs and a gold/brown colour scheme to complement the gold case. The oceans are depicted by a flinqué-froissé guilloché pattern in light and dark brown between the hours of 6 and 18 for day and night. This lower disc rotates independently of the upper sapphire disc that displays the three-dimensional continents (not simply printed) and meridian lines in gold, along with 24 world cities printed in white – London is in red. The bottom disc also has white Arabic numerals at the perimeter for 24-hour time, shown in two-hour increments. Leaf-shaped gold hour and minute hands are filled with white Super-LumiNova.
Setting world time function is relatively simple and involves both the crown and an additional rectangular pusher at 8 o’clock. When pulled to the first position, the crown changes the hour hand in one-hour increments, while also advancing the bottom disc – day/night oceans and 24-hour time. In the second position, both the hour and minute hands can be set. The pusher advances the upper disc with cities and continents in one-hour increments, along with the hour hand for travelling through time zones. You stop when your current city is at the red triangular marker at 12 o’clock. So, for example, when Geneva is at the marker and the time set at 10 am, Los Angeles will line up with 1 am on the 24-hour disc with the meridian line going through the city on North America’s west coast.
Powering the best quality copy Montblanc Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum is the MB M29.20 calibre, which is based on the Sellita SW350-1 automatic. Montblanc’s in-house world time module operates the complication. It has 26 jewels, beats at 28,800vph (4Hz) with a 42-hour power reserve. Functions include central hours and minutes, world time and a day/night indicator. Seen from the exhibition case back, the rotor is decorated with Côtes de Genève.
I am quite obsessed with German watchmaking at the moment. It may be the prideful insistence to refer to the movement plates as “German silver” at every given opportunity. Or the considered yet reserved dials hiding the wackiness beneath the surface. Whether that be crazy complications or impeccable movement finishing, German watchmaking sets itself lofty goals. But at any price point, cheap replica watches from Germany have a lot to offer to budding collectors. This list selects three German “uhren” to start your collection.
Today I am not talking about high-end German tickers. Instead, I am pulling that slider back to watches that foster similar ambitions but are far more attainable. Sinn 206 ARKTIS II Replica With Blue Dial
The German brand Sinn is well-renowned for its tool watch ingenuity. From oil-filled divers for the armed forces to clinical watches for paramedics. Many Sinns serve a professional function. In 2019, Sinn celebrated twenty years of the Arktis. The Sinn 206 Arktis II fake watch with steel bracelet was beefed-up to 43mm from the original 41mm black dial version. Just like the original’s essential characteristic, this diving chronograph has a temperature tolerance of -45°C to +80°C — just as Andreas stated in his list of alternatives to Rolex and Patek.
Party like its 1999
While the pushers may look like they screw-down as per the 1999 model, it’s just for design. Never mind though as activating the chronograph underwater does not compromise resistance down to 300 meters. Very impressive.
The dial and sub-dials of the Sinn clone feature a matching icy cool blue sunburst finish. But condensation in extreme environments is not a factor thanks to the dehumidifying technology implemented between the dial and sapphire crystal. The 60-minute scale on the bezel offers useful diver information, and the Valjoux 7750 based movement is the beating heart viewable through the sapphire case-back. There is also a hint of Patek with a steel bracelet with Nautilus-style center links. While the Nautilus may be out of contention, the Sinn is happily obtainable at €3,690.
