Most of us may know that Rolex created the GMT-Master typically for commercial airline pilots to keep track of two time zones simultaneously. It was truly a tool watch that served a practical purpose. The fake Rolex GMT-Master “Pepsi” has been around for a long time. As a matter of fact, the very first GMT-Master made its debut in 1955.
Six decades later, the appeal of the GMT-Master (and subsequent GMT-Master II) watches have gone well beyond the pilot community. Apart from the regular replica Rolex fans around the world, the GMT-Master Pepsi is a favorite of high profile celebrities too. Join us as we play a game of celeb watch spotting!
The “Pepsi” nickname refers to the iconic blue and red bezel available on the GMT-Master and GMT-Master II watches. Blue and red were the colors of the inaugural GMT-Master with huge numbers of the watches made after that. Not only did the two colors look great, but also they have a practical application as well. The red area on the bezel stands for daylight hours and blue is for night hours.
However, there have been several other GMT-Master bezel color options including black and red, bronze and brown, and solo black, the blue and red Pepsi is still the best choice. The only GMT-Master II Pepsi model currently available in the Rolex catalog is the 18k white gold GMT-Master II BLRO. The white gold makes that particular model out of reach for many. However, luckily, there is still plenty of discontinued and vintage stainless steel GMT-Master Pepsi watches for selection.
Another proud owner of the vintage stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master with a Pepsi bezel is professional baseball player, Howard Kendrick. The left fielder for the Philadelphia Phillies is a well-documented watch geek as illustrated by his beautifully curated collection pictured on his Instagram feed.
Speaking of ultra-precious, Sylvester Stallone’s Rolex Pepsi is the GMT-Master II watch. The Sly is Rolex sports a jeweled one rather than an acrylic bezel or even a Cerahcrom ceramic bezel. The 18k white gold GMT-Master II boasts diamonds, sapphires, and rubies on the bezel that come together in the famous blue, red, and white combo.
The fake Rolex GMT-Master Pepsi is an on-screen star, and it has being a watch that celebs like to have in their personal collection as well. For instance, James Spader’s character, Raymond “Red” Reddington wears one on a Jubilee bracelet in NBC’s show Blacklist.
Besides, in the 2014 movie, Gone Girl, Nick Dunne, played by Ben Affleck, is seen with a GMT-Master II Pepsi on his wrist. There’s also Keanu Reeves in Street Kings, Dustin Hoffman in Marathon Man, Mel Gibson in Air America and so on.
As demonstrated by its global popularity, the fake Rolex GMT-Master with the Pepsi bezel is an icon in its own right. With over 60 years of history behind it, this Rolex sports watch will keep on being one of the brands’ most sought after models for a long time. The only thing that’ll make the Rolex Pepsi’s story even better would be a new steel version to join the white gold one! Now wouldn’t that be something?

Even if they are from the same brand, these models are very different and I thought that a comparison of these two would be a useful read for all those that are interested in getting one or the other. This watch looks good, no matter of the side you’re looking at. It features a nice mix of colors. It has a 24 hours power reserve and you will have to wind it every time you wear it since it’s not a casual watch and you will probably wear it less. It has Japanese automatic movements. I didn’t have the time to notice how well it keeps time since I don’t wear it that often.
The Jager LeCoultre replica watches aren’t that popular, so it can be hard to find the best Jaeger Le Coultre. The markers are imitation stones and they give this watch a more elegant and luxurious feel. That’s one of the reasons why I didn’t add any new replica watch from this brand to my collection of watches. I’ve been searching for a good one for quite a bit now and couldn’t decide to buy any. The case is made from a combination of brushed and polished steel covered in rose gold.I have two Jaeger Le Coultre watches in my collection: the Jaeger LeCoultre Tourbillon and the Le Coultre Reverso Skeleton. The Tourbillon imitation at 6 o’clock looks pretty much spot on and this is one of the hardest parts to copy.
One of my friends initially bought this model that I reviewed and I likes it so much that I had to get one too. The rotor has the engravings of the brand and you can also see the tourbillon imitation. The regular seconds hand has a nice sweep, so it does also work well. The original watch doesn’t have some of the extra details you can find on this one, but the replica looks pretty good just like it is. The blue dial features a chronograph at 12 o’clock.
The movements are Japanese automatic and you can see them through the back case. What’s even more strange about it is that the case can be flipped. Even though it has a classic look and it’s very elegant, the fact that the case can be flipped also makes it a fun watch to own.
The case is made from fully polished steel and it has a good size. This Reverse Skeleton watch is different than any other watch I’ve owned up till this moment. If you compare it to the original, you will see that it doesn’t have so many details like the authentic ones has. It has a peculiar case and an intricate frame.Even Thus, it’s a great copy and it feels very high-quality. It has a nice weight and you can easily flip it, but without fearing that it will break.
Overall, this Grand Tourbillon looks pretty expensive and it’s a great accessory when worn with an elegant attire. The original sells for over $70k, so I think that this replica is a good alternative to that.The flipping system feels very sturdy. The case is see-through, on both sides, so no matter how you flip it, you can see its interiors. It has navy blue hands and a small square seconds hand located at 6 o’clock.My Jaeger LeCoulltre collection hasn’t gained any new member for a while now. It’s hard to find good replica watches from this brand. But I have a Jaeger LeCoultre Tourbillon and a Reverso Skeleton replica watches review for you, guys, in case you missed reading about this brand’s watches.
We hope our guides, which are designed to answer broader questions about watch buying as well as provide watch brand and model specific guides, provide a good frame of reference for anyone on the hunt for a timepiece. Rolex as well say that they have “totally automated the process of how the waterproof-ness, self-winding capacity and power reserve of 100 per cent of Rolex watches” are tested.
While it was no news that Rolex submitted its watches to stringent in-house tests, the Day-Date 40 marked the start of a new in-house certification process. All this is done to ensure the watches’ reliability, robustness and even their resistance to magnetism and shocks. Now, Rolex has quietly extended its Rolex Superlative Chronometer Certification to its entire production, meaning that all Rolex Oyster and Cellini watches will be tested by replica Rolex to meet its stringent -2/+2 seconds accuracy ratings. Here’s how it all works. Precisely, that means that over the course of these tests, all watches must perform within an average of -2/+2 seconds per day.
Until recently, Rolex has been casing up these COSC certified movements and been submitting them for internal certification, complementing that of COSC. For ages (several more about history further below), Rolex has been submitting its movements to the independent COSC chronometer certification tests – and that will not change, as Rolex will continue to send all its movements to COSC. The movements that pass the test will get their COSC Officially Certified Chronometer marking and then are transferred back to Rolex. This means that the uncased movements are sent over to COSC’s facilities in Biel and Saint-Imier, where each uncased movement is individually tested for a whole of fifteen days, in five diverse positions, at three diverse temperatures.
During these tests, the Fake Watches are checked to run within a maximum average deviation of -4/+6 seconds per day. In practice, Rolex has developed and re-designed its own state-of-the-art testing facilities and its proprietary methodology that is built around testing completely cased up replica watches.
For those hopeful eBay buyers not looking for a dive watch, fear not, as we have added buying guides for several popular replica watches to our library. Automating such series of complex tasks and tests must have been one immense challenge to overcome, there hardly is any other watch manufacture in Switzerland that would compare to Rolex’s know-how in automatic processes while ensuring extremely high quality of execution. As promised, a bit of history: in the past, watches were designated as chronometers by their own manufacturer to highlight watches with especially accurate movements.
Needless to say, this self-appointed use of the term led to several cases of fraudulent abuse by several watch makers, which in turn ultimately necessitated official certification. It is this stricter-than-COSC process that makes Rolex add the “Superlative” term to its Chronometer designations on the dials of its Oyster collection watches.Rolex started to have its watches officially certified as early as the late 1930s, and it was at this time that it started marking its dials not with the term “Chronometer” however with “Officially Certified Chronometer.”
For those of you still learning to branch out from the “big” names, here’s an introduction to Tudor and an introduction to Grand Seiko. Bonus reading for replica watch nerds and future watch buying & selling mavericks, here’s a starter guide to watch complications. We’ll be going into these in depth in the future.
For now, Rolex introduced the Day-Date 40mm in 18 carat white gold, yellow gold, Everose gold and the cream of the crop is of course the platinum version. Not merely did Rolex put more effort into the design of the Replica Rolex Day-Date, they as well updated the movement.
Up to this day, I still don’t have a Rolex Day-Date with President (or Oyster) bracelet however the wish is still there and very alive. In my first years of watch collecting, I remember I was able to borrow this Rolex Day-Date 18238 from my friend Gerard – who’s as well a contributor for Fratello Watches – for a few days and it felt like magic. However, during all these years, the idea of owning one at several point never let me go.
As you can see below, the Rolex Day-Date 18209 is an interesting white gold version with Oyster bracelet that has very classy looks. Now I do think that you can pull it off with a Rolex Day-Date, however I notice that my 36mm Datejust merely gets little wrist time these days.
Although I obsessed those Fake Rolex Day-Date reference 1803 models, the 18038 and later references definitely have my preference for the simple reason that they seem to be larger on the wrist due to the dial. All Rolex Day-Date models shown have the famous President bracelet. At this point, it is unknown whether Rolex will as well deliver the Day-Date on an Oyster bracelet. The Day-Date reference 1803 has a pie-pan shaped dial that makes it look a bit smaller. thus actually a Rolex Day-Date 18238 in yellow gold with a tapestry dial would be one of my favorite combinations. The Rolex Day-Date II – that has now been discontinued – had a diameter of 41mm.On the other hand, a bit more toned down white gold version would perhaps suit me better. The gold versions have a fluted bezel where as the platinum edition was presented with a smooth bezel. There will as well be diamond-set bezels for the Rolex Day-Date 40mm.
In my opinion, the watch was a bit too big and lacked the finesse and perfect design ratio of the 36mm versions. severalhow, this watch appeared to be bulkier on the wrist than the 41mm Datejust II. Men with smaller wrist can still decide to go for the original 36mm version of the Rolex Day-Date of course.
Thus besides the Rolex Yachtmaster Everose (we talked about it here), Rolex decided to bring us a new version of their Day-Date in 40mm and a stunning stainless steel Oyster Perpetual in 39mm. We will get back to you on the new 39mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual later on. At that time I was a student and walking around with a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date on a President bracelet probably looked a bit ridiculous.
The Rolex Day-Date in 40mm is basically a larger version of the classic 36mm Day-Date where the 41mm Day-Date II was just a diverse type of watch. The Rolex Day-Date 40mm is therefore [far] more elegant on the wrist and probably suits about every wrist size. The middle part of the case and lugs are more refined than its 41mm brother. With more effort into the design of the new 40mm version, I mean that they respected the original Day-Date more than they did with the 41mm version.
The dial is of extremely high quality. The dial color itself seems almost identical to that of the manual wind Day-Date and really contains a surprising amount of depth in diverse types of lighting. Furthermore, the idea of using gold on the dial may seem dated or out of order on a stainless replica Rolex watches, however here again, the way the dial picks up the color severalhow makes it all look harmonious. I mentioned the lack of chronometer certification, however like on most vintage Day-Date, I don’t miss the paragraph of verbiage reminding me of this attribute.
Replica Audemars Piguet watches prefers the term “openworked” to “skeletonization” however each means the same thing. There are a lot of openworked watches launched from Audemars Piguet this year in 2016, and that is good because the classical Swiss brand is great at it. Of course, this isn’t the first skeletonized Royal Oak watch to be launched – not even close. To see an totally diverse style of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak skeletonized watch, see this 2012 Extra Thin Openworked model here.
As a matter of fact, there is however one steel-cased standard Royal Oak for 2016 – and it isn’t budget-priced either. This unusual design was no doubt more hard to make in terms of gem setting and bracelet mechanics, and as such, the brand claims to have upped the ante on the man-hours by 100 hours. Probably the most accessibly-priced (relatively speaking) Royal Oak watches for 2016 are the new Royal Oak Offshore Diver Chronograph, however I digress. Let’s now talk about this very lovely new reference 26347PT.OO.D315CR.01 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph Openworked watch. In severalways, this piece seems much less forced as a watch novelty and actually more of a functional accessory.
What is probably new, however, is producing the Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph with a stunning skeletonized (openworked) dial and movement. Underneath, you see Audemars Piguet skilled decoration at its best in the calibre 2936 movement which is artistically cut up for your viewing pleasure. There is absolutely no shortage of new openworked watches from Audemars Piguet this year, however this particular model is a bit diverse for maintaining thus much of the classical dial thus as to preserve as much legibility as possible.
Evolved from last year’s very well received 2015 Punk – a boxier and more geometric design of bracelet cuff watch, the first thing you notice about the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is the bold architectural edges. The beauty of openworking is how severalapproaches there are to the concept. Look at a range of diverse skeletonized Audemars Piguet watches, and you’ll see how the designers there continue to experiment and play with diverse aesthetic approaches to the idea of artistically cutting away at “unnecessary” parts of the movement metal. The piece has a life of its own, giving off a feeling of motion to the observer, drawing them in for the kill. The movement is a rather thick 7.6mm, which is probably why Audemars Piguet designed this Royal Oak case to be 44mm, rather than, say, 41mm wide. I happen to really like this look, even though I equally appreciate other skeletonization techniques as well. It is possible that this is because the case needed to be thicker and the proportions of the Royal Oak (very important to the design) would have been off if it looked too thick compared to its width.
Struck in 18K white gold and at a streamlined 1.8mm thick, I can imagine the Royal Oak Tourbillon for severalwomen is the black-tie statement piece they were looking for that actually kills two birds with one stone rather than forcibly and often awkwardly integrating both watch and bracelet into one “formal-wear” piece. If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, this one is sure to make the cut.
Back in 2009, Omega replica introduced the new Ploprof, or as the nomenclature tells, the Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200m Co-Axial. This year, as seen in the newly introduced Omega Globemaster Collection (where you can find all the details about this new certification), we’ve seen again some updates, as it now features a new certification and new tests – the Master Chronometer standard.
The first change concerns the water resistance, now at 1200m – again due to the new technologies. The crown protection and locker is also improved and easier to grip but the bezel’s pushbutton is still right in place. The second change that needed to tell is in its visual aspects, which were extremely close to the classical edition. It came with the identical overall design for the case, the dial and the hands. It was still a massive watch but the construction of the case was the main update. Due to the technological advances, the case gets rid of the monobloc design and goes back to a traditional middle case, with a separated case back and bezel – considerably facilitating the service operations. Last but not least, the Omega Seamster Ploprof 2009 edition comes with a modern Co-Axial chronometer movement, the Calibre 8500.
Concerning the huge size of this Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200m, the usage of lightweight titanium is more than welcome, as it won’t make the watch smaller but at least, easier to wear on a daily basis. The first advantage of this metal is to be more resistant to scratches and corrosion – something that professional divers will certainly like.
On the 2009 edition of the Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200m, the bezel was made of a sapphire crystal printed (on the back) with a 60-minute scale. Several years later, in the 2015, Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200m Co-Axial Master Chronometer, you won’t be surprised to see the arrival of ceramic, once again a more resistant material. As a matter of fact, many things that can’t be seen at first sight. No doubt, you’ll easily recognize the new dial / bezel / strap combos, but the rest of the updates is more technical. Initially introduced in 2013, this new movement began to be used widely in the collection last year, especially with the introduction of the Omega Seamaster 300m Master Co-Axial. omega copy watches, the watch keep the exact identical shape, with its 55mm x 48mm x 17.5mm case. The main novelty is something that we totally applause: the use of titanium for both the case and the mesh bracelet (the use of titanium for such a bracelet seems to be a world’s first).The second update concerns the bezel.
The case comes with one last update: the caseback is now made of sapphire crystal, in order to offer a view on the movement. I count a minimum of 5-6 various kinds of finishing around the movement alone. Each and every surface around the movement is completed, from sunbursts around the gears to various stripes on all of the bridges, rotors and casing. The 2015 Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200m Co-Axial Master Chronometer Titanium features the Calibre 8912, meaning the no-date edition of the movement we can find in the Omega GlobeMaster – movements that were previously know as the Master Co-Axial. It allows the movement to be resistant to magnetic fields up to 15.000 Gauss, based first on COSC standards and then on an internal process build together with METAS. Basically, we found all the technologies created by Omega, including the Co-Axial escapement and the fully anti-magnetic construction, with all the major parts made in silicon (balance wheel, escapement wheel and pallet, hairspring) or in non-magnetic metals (for the plates and bridges).
Some watches tend to stand out through brand name, others through durability and others through an out of this world design. The watch is deeply attractive under lights, the range of finishes means the watch demonstrates a complexity that belies the design which, on paper at least appears simple. The Omega Calibre 8912 features two barrels for 60 hours of power reserve and ticks at 3.5Hz. It is decorated with arabesque Geneva stripes. Accuracy for Co-Axial Master Chronometer watches is said to average -0, + 5 seconds per day.
Founded in 1905 in London by Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex became known for a concentration on quality movements, a relentless quest for chronometric precision and the first waterproof and dustproof watch, named the “Oyster”. Rolex watches were present during a number of historical events, including Mercedes Gleitze’s ten-hour swim across the English channel and Sir Edmund Hillary’s summit of Mount Everest.
The watch features a striking champagne dial, with hour markers made from 18 carat gold to prevent tarnishing. The Rolex Datejust is not just a passing trend in horology, but a true style. This model has transcended time thanks to its aesthetics and functions.The watch is placed on a two-toned Jubilee bracelet. The cyclops on the crystal, invented by Rolex in 1953 magnifies the date for easy reading.
The bracelet is a comfortable five-piece link metal bracelet and was designed for the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust in 1945. The new model, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 comes in a variety of options, allowing the wearer to customize materials, the bezel and bracelet. Influenced by the pioneering Date just, the date on this model is displayed in a window at 3 o’clock and changes instantaneously at midnight. The watch is powered by the 3235 movement, a new generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. It is certified as a Swiss chronometer by COSC. Rolex invented and patented the world’s first self-winding mechanism in 1931 that remains at the heart of every modern replica automatic watch today. Discover more about Rolex here.
2012 was IWC’s year of their Pilot’s watch. Just before IWC is ready to launch the new Ingenieur collection in the next coming weeks at SIHH 2013, we look back at the Pilot collection with IWC’s Creative Director, Christian Knoop. The introduction party of the new Pilot collection during the SIHH in Geneva last year has been topic of several discussions. Here in The Netherlands, we had our own introduction day of the new IWC (TOP Gun) Pilot collection. A report of that day can be found by clicking here. For the Father & Son Pilot collection, we decided to use different colors for the dial and Super Luminova.
Whether it was positive or not, at least IWC got everyone’s attention for the Pilot collection. I sat down with Mr Knoop in the Dylan hotel in Amsterdam and asked him the following questions:
Mr Knoop, how did you end up working in the watch industry?
I almost had seen every type of product except cars and watches. It was actually by coincidence that I ended up in the watch industry. Compared to the products I’ve work with before, timepieces are certainly the most emotional products. That’s very special in this era. However, my team and I do more than timepieces only. We have a team of 12 designers in Schaffhausen and 5 of them are constantly working on watches. Before I started working for replica IWC, I’ve been active for a lot of different industries. Other members of the team work on our IWC boutiques, packaging, gifts and basically every visual aspect of IWC replica watches. However, the timepieces are our center point of attention.
What struck me most – besides the timepieces – is that at the basis of these products is a company with a long history which does everything by themselves from design to the actual production process of the watch. It’s just wonderful how involved our customers are with our products. Every time I talk to IWC collectors, IWC fans or to the people who visit our museum in Schaffhausen I am amazed how emotional they get about our brand. We also decided to produce both models in stainless steel (as opposed to the platinum & steel set from the previous collection), as we’ve learned that this combination should become affordable for more customers.
It really fascinates me and gives me a lot of input in my work. It displays that it is more than ‘just a watch’ to people, several people live for watches. I live for watches. The Big Pilot (Father’s watch) is an iconic watch already and has its own group of followers. Wasn’t it hard to change certain things about this replica watch, such as the black dial? On to the watches. The Pilot collection has been IWC’s focus in 2012. Let’s start with the new Pilot Father & Son timepieces that were introduced in 2012.
