Fun Imitation Watches To Come Out Of The Salon International De La Horlogerie 2017

Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie or SIHH, one of the two most important best cheap replica watches fairs in the world, launched a bundle of stunners recently in Geneva. For over two decades, SIHH has been an invite-only affair, where journalists and watch traders are invited by the host brands. This year, for the first time in the history of SIHH, the fair opened its gates to all watch enthusiasts.

SIHH’s list of participating brands is increasing every year, bringing in more diversity. This year many brands appeared to pursue millennial watch collectors, who want to own a piece of luxury watch that complements their personality. Brands revealed designs that are young and sprightly, watches that present the complex engineering of horology in a manner that today’s collectors would not just admire, but also enjoy playing with.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt

Roger Dubuis was started by a master watchmaker in 1995 to manufacture unique, haute horologerie designs. This year at SIHH, Roger Dubuis’s confidence has reached a new level of modernism. The Excalibur Quatuor Cobalt MicroMelt looks straight out of a Transformers movie, flexing its muscles with the hand-wound 590-part RD101 Quatuor movement. This movement beats at a frequency of 16 Hz (115,200 vph) with its four sprung balances spread around the watch, ensuring that the gravitational force has little impact on the watch’s accuracy to tell time. Before we talk about the gorgeous blue colour, take a look at the industrial design of the watch borders. This high-performance cobalt chrome alloy, clothing the 48 mm-diameter case is produced using the MicroMelt technology associated with aeronautics.

HYT Skull Pocket

The HYT Skull Pocket takes the brand’s signature and contemporary style of watchmaking to newer heights. At a time when watch wearers are going ‘smart’, HYT has decided to go vintage with a pocket-style creation. Its signature style of watchmaking uses fluid to tell time, and the skull watch also follows suit, using a complex liquid to indicate hours. The mechanical power from the winding of the crown is converted to electrical energy that bathes the Skull Pocket in a soft blue light.

Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-up

Ulysse Nardin is one of the oldest watch brands, founded in the mid-19th century. Two centuries on, its novelties continue to be invented with the same enthusiasm. It is known for timpieces with erotic themes. Ulysse Nardin’s new limited edition Hourstriker Pin-Up watch is an alluring addition to the manufacture’s line of Hourstriker watches.

In the Pin-up watch, a sensual burlesque dancer is seen adorned with peacock feathers. As time passes, the comely curves of the dancer are revealed by the hourstriker function. Dramatic revelations by the burlesque dancer come alive on the hour, the half-hour and whenever the wearer activates the push-button. Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-up watch runs on a self-winding movement. It has a decent power reserve of approximately 42 hours and can resist water up to 30 metres. The playful watch is available in a limited edition series, produced in rose gold and platinum.

Panthère Joueuse de Cartier

Cartier has probably already made hundreds of watches dedicated to the brand’s favourite wildcat. At SIHH, connoisseurs were treated to yet another caricature of the panther, a playful one this time. The panther dominating the ‘Joueuse de cartier women’s replica watch is not just ornate, but plays a functional role in telling time.

When the observer is not struck by the glamour of the 185-carat diamond-studded dial, it is truly enjoyable to see the panther play with the ball, to tell time. There are no hands on the watch that indicate hours and minutes. Instead, the panther’s paw points at the minutes, while a ball, also in diamond-set 18-carat white gold indicates the hour reading at that moment.

Van Cleef and Arpels Lady Arpels Papillon Automate

This Van Cleef and Arpels watch is akin to a beautiful fantasy. The animated butterfly and shine of the diamond-laden watch can brighten any gloomy day for the wearer. The summery women’s watch from Van Cleef and Arpels runs on a self-winding movement – in other words, the watch winds-in more mechanical power when the wearer moves the wrist adorning the watch. The hour and minute hands sit pretty against the bucolic backdrop. Like in nature, a butterfly erratically sits on the dial and flutters every now and then to snag the monotony of passing time.

Investment Of Ten Antiquated Replica Watches

 We gather the world’s most collectable replica watches which you should expect to own them

Rolex GMT-Master II Replica
Rolex GMT-Master II Replica

Rolex is one of the few watchmakers that is a definite investment proposition. The iconic “Pepsi Cola”, so named for its red and blue bezel, may have been recently revived, but the original – and some might say best – cheap rolex watches GMT is a crown jewel fit for any collection. It’s not the rarest Rolex, however, and prices can vary from below £10,000 to nearing £20,000.

Tudor Oyster Submariner Replica
Tudor Oyster Submariner Replica

Thinking of Tudor as Rolex’s little brother is not entirely inaccurate, but falls a little short of the full picture. The brand was originally conceived as an entry level equivalent to Rolex, but its watches went through precisely the same level of technical development; even its Submariner was created at exactly the same time as Rolex’s now iconic piece. Like their modern equivalent, vintage Tudors replica watches – especially the Submariners – are some of the best value watches you can find. If you discover a 1970s version with original snowflake dial for under £5,000, you’ve done very well.

Panerai Radiomir 3646 Replica
Panerai Radiomir 3646 Replica

This is the granddaddy of all diving watches. The Radiomir hasn’t changed all that much since the 1940s, but that first model, commissioned for the frogmen of the Italian navy, is the panerai imitationholy grail to collectors. With a case and movement made by Rolex, it’s also incredibly rare – £20,000 – £30,000 worth of rare.

Omega Speedmaster 105.012 Replica
Omega Speedmaster 105.012 Replica

There are plenty of rarer, more sought-after versions of Omega’s iconic Speedmaster replica out there, but the model that actually travelled to the moon and back on the wrist of Buzz Aldrin is a very safe investment – at worst, there’s a hell of a story behind it. A running one in need of some love will likely set you back somewhere in the region of £3,000.

Replica Heuer Carrera 2447

Having celebrated its 50th birthday last year, we were reminded just how big an impact the original replica Carerra had on watchmaking. Along with the Rolex Daytona, it laid the blueprints of the driving watch. Clean, clear and sleek, it has aged exceptionally well. Prices vary, but if you’re after the much coveted panda-dialled Valjoux 72-equipped version you’re looking at around £4,000.

Grand Seiko Replica Self-dater

Seiko are one of the few watchmakers you’ll never hear anything negative about. They’ve been steadily and quietly making phenomenal watches for a century and, if you can find a 1960s Grand Seiko – arguably the pinnacle of Japanese watchmaking – you won’t be disappointed. There was a model prior to the self-dated, but this is where fake swiss  Grand Seiko‘s now signature look first came in. Plus you won’t find a better watch around the £3,000 mark.

Cartier Tank Normale Replica
Cartier Tank Normale Replica

One of the oldest watches on this list, the Tank has been around since it was allegedly presented to General Pershing in 1917. Whether that was the case or not, it has remained one of the most iconic watches in the world and, if you can get your hands on an early 1920s model, it’s a serious investment piece. Even more recent models are great finds and can cut the £25,000-£30,000 price tag down about half. The ultimate is that 1917 Tank cheap cartier watches Normale, although the later 1960s Tank JC requires a few miracles and plenty of capital to get hold of.

 Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Replica
Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Replica

The Reverso is without a doubt the most iconic replica Jaeger-LeCoultre, but the 1960s Polaris is quite possible the grand maison’s most sought-after vintage piece. Far rarer than the basic Memovox, the Polaris’s mechanical alarm is an unusual complication to find on a diving watch but is all the more interesting for it. You can expect to pay somewhere in the region of £10,000 and £25,000 for a good, working version so if you’re on a budget, you may want to opt for the standard Memovox, which is still a brilliant timepiece in its own right.

Replica Audemars Piguet Caliber 2870
Replica Audemars Piguet Caliber 2870

You’d probably expect an early Royal Oak to be here – and it would certainly deserve a place – but Audemars Piguet swiss replica had a life before its seminal timepiece. At the time, this was the thinnest tourbillon ever made and is still pretty high on the list today. It’s also a rather unique looking watch, one that won’t easily be mistaken for anything else. They don’t appear on the market all that often, which is understandable given the nature of tourbillons, but as a guide, the last one at auction achieved £19,300.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica
Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica

Being precious and being rare aren’t always the same thing, as Patek’s record-breaking Only Watch showed. The auctioned high-complication achieved a staggering £5.7m by virtue of being a rarity in steel rather than being made of gold and diamonds. The same holds true for vintage replica patek philippe calatrava. They may be on the expensive side – you can expect to pay up to £30,000 for a flawless example from the 1960s and far more for earlier models – but they’re worth the investment.
