In a long list of turn-offs for discerning watch lovers, two-tone metal watches are right up there with the 4:30 date window and lots of dial text. But if a lot of people didn’t like two-tone watches, brands wouldn’t make two-tone fake watches. And I’m one of those people. In my opinion, it’s actually quite stylish. In fact, since 50% of your watch is made of gold, there’s no benefit in terms of function, style is the point.
However, in the case of two-tone, in many cases, it is. That’s because this alluring blend of stainless steel and gold saw its heyday in the 1980s when many current grandfathers were at the height of their watch buying power. Not everyone wanted or was ready to buy an all-gold watch. In fact, it is well known that gold watches symbolize retirement and the end of something. That means you’re in it, baby – and you’re just getting started.
We’ve already covered Tom Selleck and the Magnum P.I. on the site this week, but it’s worth noting that while the Magnum was defined by the Rolex GMT-Master 16750, Selleck’s personal watch at the time was the two-tone Rolex Datejust. In American Psycho, Wall Street banker and serial killer Patrick Bateman wears a two-tone Rolex Datejust watch with a rarely seen linen dial.
Even without that film, the Datejust would have been the most iconic two-tone watch of all time. Unlike other watches, which are defined by being two-tone models, the Datejust is a two-tone model with a two-tone Jubilee bracelet, and while not an invention of the 1980s, it is a watch that defined the decade. In addition to being an empirically good-looking timepiece, it represents the best value in vintage replica watches today. Dare I say that it is the most under-appreciated watch available? I dare say it. I’m saying yes.
But it’s hardly the only two-tone classic. Take another example, the Cartier Santos, with its gold bezel and two-tone Santos bracelet. The angular case shape combined with the 70s design language of the iconic bracelet, all strung together in stainless steel and gold.
Two-tone has also permeated some of the iconic steel sports watches and given them a new lease of life. Many collectors consider these watches to be the exception to the no two-tone rule. I’m referring to the two-tone Submariner with its blue bezel and blue dial, and the famous Rolex GMT-Master Root Beer. While I’m not bashing the stainless steel Submariner or GMT-Master, each two-tone example is a fantastic alternative.
To celebrate the completion of the new PP6 production building in Plan-Les-Ouates (Geneva), Patek Philippe has created a limited edition Calatrava stainless steel (6007A-001). Patek Philippe usually releases commemorative replica watches in limited editions to coincide with important events. Two examples are the popular Ref. 5500 Pagoda (2,000 pieces) and the Ref. 5029 Minute Repeater (30 pieces) that were both presented in 1997 to stress the official inauguration of the new manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates.
In 1996, Patek Philippe had announced the inauguration of a new manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates. After that, the company was the first brand to establish a presence in this Genevan suburb community that was later referred to as “Plan-les-Watches”.
The objective at the time was to reunite under one roof the individual business activities that were previously distributed across over a dozen sites throughout the city and to thus secure the independence of the company in the long term. Even though the new building was generously sized, it soon proved to be too small to cope with the manufacture’s growth.
PP6 started with a small groundbreaking ceremony in October 2015. Five years later, the manufacture’s new production center now stands on a plot once occupied by the company’s parking lot.
The total investment was CHF 700 million, CHF 500 million for the structure and CHF 100 million for interiors as well as the avant-garde technical resources. The new Patek Philippe building complies with the “Haute Performance Energétique (HPE)” standards pursuant to the energy laws of the canton of Geneva. The building stands out with perfect dimensions: 189 meters long, 67 meters wide, 34 meters above ground, with 10 floors, of which four subterranean
Seiko’s Astron is a rather amazing piece of kit. Apparently, it tells the time, day, date and a second time zone. But the key point is in the method. The Astron, because of GPS technology, keeps track of time by talking to satellites – a really cool party method.
It makes sense that the Astron is billed as an adventure watch for the travelling set by giving its go-anywhere accuracy and automatic time zone adjustment,. And never has that been more apparent than with this watch. Don’t mind the ‘Solar Executive Sports Series’ name, these replica watches are the most rough and tumble Astron yet.
The wonderful versatility of the solar 8X53 is matched by the super-hard titanium case (with rose gold tone in this case) and ceramic bezel. The rich, golden brown ceramic bezel, by the way, is inserted with UTC times on the top and IATA codes on the side, all of which, in a neat trick, have some impressive luminous powers. The face of the case is more straightforward, too, a more rugged sporty look that downplays the still hefty 46.7mm diameter and 14.5mm height. Best of all, though, the Sports Executive Series boasts a solid 20 bar of water resistance, making it more than a match for the hotel pool. The sporty look is finished by the blocky black crown guards.
There are some choices in this new, curvaceous and water-friendly Astron line-up, such as straight up-and-down black dial, as well as a very pretty blue option. For me though, I’m quite taken by the high contrast, high bling SSE170J1. It’s not a subtle color scheme, but, then again, with its big build and complicated face, the Astron was never really an under-the proposition, so why not own this replica model?
Paul Newman is famous for many things in every aspect. He’s an icon — an award-winning actor best known for his work in movies like The Color of Money, The Hustler, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and more. He was even popular for his salad dressings, and his passion for race car driving. But for all this man did, only one thing is a Rolex named after him.
When the replica Rolex first introduced the Daytona, a fake watch inspired by racecar drivers and named after the well-known Florida track, it wasn’t a big hit. Back in the day, the watch sold for a couple hundred bucks, and the face didn’t resonate with the general public.
Then, Paul Newman was spotted wearing one. The world-famous actor was also into racecar driving, and for that, the Daytona served a purpose. Soon, watch retailers all over the world were able to sell dusty Daytona’s off their shelves by calling them Rolex’s ‘Paul Newman’ watch.
Today, it’s one of the most recognizable replica watches in the world. Although, it is important to note that Daytona stands for a line of high-performance luxury timepieces, not a single model. There are three distinct series, the first being the smallest and beginning in 1963 and lasting through the 1980’s. During the first series, all models were given a four-digit model number and featured a manual-wind movement. This is also the most important series because so few were made. Besides, this is the original Daytona that Newman made famous.
The second series is categorized as the generation after Newman made it a hit. Today, we’re in the third series with self-winding chronograph functions and a six-digit model number. Although the first series are amongst the rarest and most expensive replica watchesto date, the second and third series are further proof that Newman’s stamp of approval is all this watch needed to catapult it to stardom.
Another way you can tell if it’s an original Newman Daytona is if the domed crystals are made of acrylic. The sub-dials also have block markers instead of the more modern lines, and each sub-dial also has crosshairs placed on them.
This original was available with both black and white dials, but you can see here, Newman preferred the black. You can also see the very detailed, beautiful red that reads out ‘Daytona’ stretched across the sub-dial above six o’clock. There’s even that rare, nice red in the outer minute track.
The replica watch was originally gifted to Newman by his wife, Joanne Woodward, and on the back you’ll read, “Drive Carefully, Me.” clearly inscribed. Eventually, you it can’t go without mentioning that this watch sat on Newman’s wrist for decades. Just imagine all that watch has seen and done.
Tissot tell you that the fake watch is available for working with one year in a low-light circumstance if it is completely charged and used sparingly. i have no idea about this movement on eta’s site and trust the user’s manual for this. to begin with, the digital functions were not intuitive to navigate and i had to get the manual out a few times to ensure that i understood the abbreviations. however, i’m just the one who doesn’t read the instructions carefully unless it’s necessary.
press and hold the button at 3 o’clock to start up the touch functions, you’ll see t-touch flash at the top of the digital window when you operate it. now, all you do is touch the crystal under the word matching the function you want to use.
the hands will move from 11 to 1 to show the shift in pressure or trend. it is sensing low pressure or cloud cover when the hands point to 11. as the pressure rises and clouds clear, the hands will move toward the 1 o’clock marker. this function seems to be a guide at the first time, but you can also look up at the clouds.
tap at 2 o’clock and get a barometric altimeter, displaying the altitude regarding to mean sea level using the absolute atmospheric pressure mentioned earlier. there’s an altitude difference reading as well, so you can use to measure your assent or decent.
the digital display can show atmospheric pressure values clearly. absolute atmospheric pressure is the real pressure at the time and place of measurement, and cannot be selected. relative pressure can be set on the watch and relies on your location relative to sea level.
tap at the 4 o’clock for the chronograph, 8 and 10 for the alarm and timer and you got normal ironman options, while the compass at 6 o’clock is really fantastic. the alarm function had two alarm settings and a small detail that i appreciated. the alarm would sound, and wait few seconds before going off repeatedly. this is so nice for the reminder without the obnoxious repeat.
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.
