Lewis Hamilton And UK Swiss Replica IWC Team Up For Big Pilot’s Watch Campaign

Having an ambassador is nothing new. Most of the major replica watch brands have one or more. However, having an ambassador with a sincere personal passion for the watch brand they represent is rare. Seven-time FIA Formula One World Drivers’ Champion Lewis Hamilton teamed up with IWC in 2013 and hasn’t hidden his affection for the brand from Schaffhausen in both his professional as well as his personal life since. He seems to have a particular preference for their IWC Pilot’s replica watches uk, even owning versions created specifically for him by IWC. That also makes him perfect to be the star in the new global advertising campaign.

“We could not have found a better person than Lewis Hamilton to express the unique character that the perfect fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch embodies. He is not only a remarkable athlete but a multifaceted personality driven by passion and purpose, using his voice to speak out. Lewis deserves our deepest respect for his achievements, not only on the track but also as a driver of change. , As we strive to become a more inclusive organization in line with our ongoing commitment to sustainability and responsibility, we are proud to partner with Lewis, who embodies these values on this new campaign,” explains Franziska Gsell, Chief Marketing Officer of IWC Schaffhausen.
Hamilton is shot in a charismatic yet understated way by British photographer Misan Harriman, who also joined the super clone IWC family as brand ambassador. Harriman made a name for himself by being the first black man to shoot the cover of the British edition of Vogue magazine, as well as being one of the most prominent photographers to capture the Black Lives Matter-movement on film.

As this is also a cause close to the heart of Hamilton, the two have a natural connection which shows in the images. Harriman captured Hamilton in his own distinct style, casual and personal, which makes this campaign for IWC rather intimate. It shows the man behind the athlete while at the same time displaying a wide variety of Swiss movements fake IWC Big Pilot’s watches, proving once again that a natural connection between brand and ambassador cannot be beaten.


Zenith replica is returning to their Chronomaster Revival series once again, hot off the heels of the A3817 released last month, with a new model that embraces a contemporary green colorway paired with a matte titanium case. It’s called, naturally, the Safari, and I suppose it was only a matter of time before we saw the most popular color of the year appear on Zenith’s most popular chassis. Rather than going the heritage route here, Zenith is using the same titanium case found on the Revival Shadow. The result is certainly unique, or Zenith puts it, lush.
At its core, this is a watch we’ve discussed and reviewed at length, and yes, it’s good. The 37mm X 47mm case dimensions remain, as does the sub 13mm case thickness, though the square shape means it doesn’t wear quite as tiny as the numbers would indicate. It’s a lovely thing on the wrist and that hasn’t changed here.

What is new, however, is the colorway, which can shift the personality of this Zenith copy watch with green dial by a wide margin, as we’ve seen before. The base of the dial is a textured khaki green that reads forest at a glance. The lume used in hour markers and hands is aged or yellowed or whatever you want to call it, and I’d say it accents the colors here rather well as a conscious design decision rather than an attempt at faux-tina. This is aided by the black registers at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, which keep with the under-the-radar look.

The case helps here as well, which is constructed from titanium that’s been micro-blasted for a matte texture throughout. It’s the same case we saw on the Revival Shadow and takes a moment for your brain to register the look and material appearing on a case that was designed in the ‘60s. Somehow, it works. Especially with the khaki green ‘cordura’ strap with light khaki accents.

Inside is the El Primero in caliber 400 guise, all visible through the open caseback. Nothing new to report there. The luxury fake Zenith Chronomaster Revival is not a limited edition, but it will be available only through their Zenith boutiques and direct through their website. The price is a steep $9,000, which is $600 more than the Shadow, for reasons unknown. We’re guessing this won’t be the last such release on the Revival line, and while they do seem to be leaning hard into a good thing, there hasn’t really been a stinker in the bunch, so vive et vivant, I say.


After a week of cryptic teasers with the message ‘just one more thing’ Tudor replica has revealed the Black Bay Ceramic. Once again, the speculation missed the mark by a wide margin, as the Steve Jobs-ian tagline (and recent Marine Nationale news) may have set expectations running a bit wild. Nevertheless, Tudor’s return to the regular Black Bay range does come with an interesting bit of news, and that is the now METAS certified master chronometer build of their manufacture caliber MT5602.

If you’re thinking this watch sounds a bit familiar, you’re not wrong. Tudor made an all-black ceramic Black Bay for Only Watch 2019, as well as a regular production Black Bay Dark featuring a black PVD case back in 2016, so this is a look and material with some precedent, even if it is divisive among enthusiasts.
The newest cheap fake Tudor Black Bay in ceramic looks similar to the Only Watch creation, with a fully black bezel that lacks even a lume pip. The black dial gets a bit of contrast here, however, with what appears to be off-white colored lume filling the hour markers and hands. The branding and minute track are rendered in grey across the dial, and for the first time ever, include the name “Black Bay” at 6 o’clock above the “Master Chronometer” label.
The black ceramic mid case gets the micro-blasted matte finish, while the bezel assembly is PVD 316L steel with brushed ceramic insert. The measurements are the same as you’d find other Black Bay 41 models, at 41mm in diameter, 14.4mm thick, and about 50mm from lug to lug. If the OG Black Bay was a bit large on your wrist, you won’t find solace here. Let us take a moment to be grateful for the Black Bay 58.
By far the most interesting news associated with this release is the new variant of the MT5602 caliber, the MT5602-1U. Not only does it get a slick bit of decoration making for a better view around back, it gets master chronometer certification via METAS. No, METAS isn’t just an Omega thing. Once a movement has met C.O.S.C. standards, it may also undergo master chronometer testing, which is a whole ‘nother ball game.
To gain master chronometer certification a movement must remain within a 5 second range of variation each day, and it must guarantee that accuracy while subjected to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss. The movement is tested at two different temperatures, in six different positions, and at two levels of reserve: 100% and 33%. This is a legit achievement for the MT5602 and clues us into where they are heading with this movement. While I’ve all but given up on guessing what high-end copy Tudor will release next, there’s a good chance we’ll see more use of the master chronometer given the fact that Tudor now has a dedicated lab for METAS testing and certification in their manufacturer.
Along with the performance upgrades, the MT5602-1U gets some visual improvements, as well. As exhibition casebacks seem to be the norm with Tudor these days, that’s a good thing. The bridges are matte black with laser etched details and the black tungsten oscillating weight has enough open spaces to view the action underneath. A full balance bridge supports the variable inertia balance with silicone hairspring beating away inside. Tudor lists additional “secret components” inside, so we’ll have to wait for a watchmaker’s perspective on further improvements. I am firmly in the camp that prefers closed casebacks on my tool watches but this is a pretty cool execution that has me re-thinking that position.
All told, this is a lot of watch for $4,725. Sure, it’s not what any of us were expecting, but the MT5602-1U is an exciting new step for the brand that will hopefully open new doors for future releases. The black ceramic case feels a bit on the fashion/luxury side of the line, which seems to be a direction luxury copy Tudor wants to take, especially in light of the pair of precious metal 58 models just released, and their move to open casebacks. Until we see otherwise, this seems to be something of a transitionary period for Tudor. Whether that’s for better or worse remains to be seen, but I’m still holding out hope for the Marine Nationale partnership.

Luxury UK Fake A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Automatic Ref. 380.032 In 18k Pink Gold

I’ve been deep in the weeds on an upcoming perfect fake A. Lange & Söhne editorial project over the past few weeks (stay tuned!), so when this A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia copy with automatic movement arrived in today’s Pre-Owned selection, it was a welcome sight.

Unlike the other project I’m working on, this top quality copy A. Lange & Söhne is an excellent example of an underappreciated genre these days – that of the three-handed, precious metal dress watch.

With an in-house movement inside – and visible through a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback (#LangeTax) – this is one of the thinnest self-winding watches A. Lange & Söhne currently produces. And the 38.5mm pink gold case ensures that it’s a real peach on the wrist, too. Check out this brown leather strap A. Lange & Söhne replica watch in full detail right here.

The Stunning UK Luxury Replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Nonantième

How do you like your 1:1 quality fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso? As a time-only watch with a solid case back like the recently presented green Reverso Tribute Small Seconds? And where do you stand on complications in a Reverso? Proper complications like a version with tourbillon or minute repeater I mean. And what about the most complicated Reverso ever to see the light of day? The recently launched four-sided Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185. My personal taste leans towards the simpler versions. I like a two-faced Reverso with a second time zone that takes full advantage of the design. However, adding tourbillons and minute repeaters to a polo watch is a bit too much for me. It is perhaps a tad difficult to explain historically. But maybe that’s just me.

But that doesn’t mean the Reverso has no history in complications. Take the Nonantième, a direct descendent of the newly-presented Soixantième. That watch debuted in 1991, sixty years after the Reverso’s creation. The manufacture’s goal was to create six new Reverso complicated models within the decade — from the tourbillon to the minute repeater or the quantième perpetuel, each incorporating the greatest classical complications. On the ninetieth — the translation to the French word “nonantième” — birthday of the Reverso the rectangular watch now comes with new expressions of several classical complications. Let’s go over them front to back.
Reverso Nonantième: up front
However complicated the pink gold case replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Nonantième may be, the front dial exudes traditional refinement and elegance. The silvered, sunray-brushed dial with applied golden indexes and Dauphine hands could even be called understated. Sure, the big date is a prominent feature on the dial and so is the moon phase display, but the balance of the dial is perfect. I also like that the moon phase is set within the small seconds. It’s a complicated watch that doesn’t show off.

Reverso Nonantième: on the back
Flip the case over and this luxury fake Jaeger-LeCoultre reveals visually striking expressions of two complications — a straight-forward digital semi-jumping hour semi-integrated with a picturesque night-day indication. And they’re arranged like a figure-of-eight and encircled by gadroons quite similar to the ones seen on the upper and lower edges of the case. The small upper aperture displays a semi-jumping digital hour indication. Seen for the first time in a Reverso, this complication recalls digital displays developed for wristwatches in the 1930s. It also reminds me of one of my favorite Reverso’s, the 2003 Reverso Eight Days Ref. 3018420 with a digital power reserve indicator on the case back.
The minutes below the digital hour appear on a rotating disc that is partially concealed by a three-quarter plate lacquered in vivid blue. Done by hand in the Atelier des Métiers Rares of the manufacture in Le Sentier, the blue lacquer sprinkled with tiny golden stars depicts the night sky. Within a small circle at the center, an applied golden sun and moon, pass above a horizon to indicate night and day. The contrast between the sharp digital hour display and the analog artisanal look of the night sky paints a very original and harmonious picture.
230 components hiding between two dials
Unfortunately, the manually wound Calibre 826 comprising 230 components, stays hidden as is so often the case in a cheap fake Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. Sure, that’s a downside to a two-faced Reverso. Mainly beacuse a complicated, two-sided form movement is not something you see every day. But on the other hand, the finishing of and the decoration on not one, but two dials is superb. It’s done in such a way you can and will get over the fact Calibre 826 remains a mystery.
