We’ve already seen a few fake watches released in conjunction with the Formula 1 season this year, from the TAG Heuer Monaco, to the carbon dialed IWC Pilot’s watch, and this week, Bell & Ross replica uk joins the mix to reveal their Alpine F1 A521 collection. Bell & Ross sponsor the UK based Alpine team, who are making their debut this year as the reformed Renault team (who B&R have sponsored since 2016). In honor of the new team, high-end copy Bell & Ross have built three limited edition watches using the team’s black, white, and blue colors across the dial.
The Swiss movement copy Bell & Ross watches come amidst the French GP race weekend, which saw Alpine’s veteran driver (and 2-time world champion), Fernando Alsonso, take P8 after starting in P9. The team also announced a new contract for their young French driver, Esteban Ocon (who finished P14) this week, assuring him a seat in the Alpine through the 2024 season. In light of this, I’d say B&R have picked an opportune time to release their Alpine F1 collection, which gets its A521 name after the cars competing on track. Quick tip of the hat to Red Bull and Verstappen on the win. The 1:1 quality Bell & Ross copy watches fall within the V3, 03, and X1 families, and while the cases are all different, they share the same dual register chronograph layout and black, blue and white colorway. The V3 and 03 models are both limited to 500 examples, while the X1 will see just 50 made. The BR V3-94 A521 is built on the same platform we reviewed here, featuring a broad 43mm case that slips just under 50mm from lug to lug and 13mm thick. The dial is quite different, however, with a full set of racy Arabic numerals at each hour, and sub dials that offer a peak under the dial. The hour totalizer has been ditched, leaving the minutes and a running seconds hand, each getting a white outline. Blue undertones are applied throughout, including a blue timing seconds hand with the Alpine “A” at its counterweight. It’s the same story with the BR 03-94 A521, but here we find the familiar 42mm square case design of the 03 collection. The chronograph actuation uses a lever design rather than the buttons we usually see, and is something reserved for their F1 timepieces (first seen in the R.S. 18 collection). Both the V3 and the 03 use the Bell & Ross caliber 301, which is based on the ETA 2894-2 automatic chronograph movement. Finally, the BR X1 A521 brings a fully transparent dial offering a view of the lovely proprietary bridge work featured on the BR cal. 313 (also based on the ETA 2894-2). The X1 gets a chunkier 45mm titanium and ceramic case with rubber inserts bristling from every corner. It’s a high-tech look befitting of the subject matter here and just top quality replica Bell & Ross will be built at a price of $21,500.
How I long to travel again! The COVID-19 pandemic grounded me and I am used to traveling abroad regularly. Fortunately, in many countries, the infection rate is now stabilizing and even going down.
As traveling once again becomes an option, it’s a good time to dust off our travel watches or mark the occasion with a new one: and a good start is the recently introduced BR 03-93 GMT from fake Bell & Ross. The Swiss automatic Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT replica watch follows in the footsteps of the watch with the same name launched in 2016. The updated version includes a bidirectional bezel, instead of the previously fixed one, as well as a bolder dial and bezel design.
The elephant in the room: Rolex The bezel on the 2021 BR 03-93 GMT features silver Arabic numerals and hour markers; the background between 6:00 pm and 6:00 am is black, while the other half is red. This is so one may easily distinguish between the hours of the night and the day. This bezel is a variation on the Coke or Pepsi bezel theme, so nicknamed for its color combination. And as soon as you slip this watch on, an elephant enters the room. Actually, it is an even bigger animal than that, more a woolly mammoth. Even though this top quality copy Bell & Ross bezel is black and red instead of blue and red, comparison to the Rolex GMT-Master Coke/Pepsi is imminent. And when Rolex is involved, everything else tends to look like a copycat.
There is an exception to this, of course, and that is the black dial fake Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT. The square case is so distinctly Bell & Ross that the Coke-style bezel loses any resemblance to Rolex.
The dial also aids in this as Bell & Ross super clone uses bold Arabic numerals in combination with a full set of minute markers. The hands are equally bold, with the second time zone hand boasting a red Super-LumiNova-filled arrow tip. Visually, this offers a lot of balance on the dial as the color theme is very consistent. It may look a tad busy, but legibility is great and the visual impact is strong. The generously sized hands and hour markers allow for plenty of luminous material for great low-light visibility. Perfect for checking the time during an overnight flight to an exotic location.
Details I love The BR 03 collection from Bell & Ross does not really match my personal style and preferences. Fortunately, two decades in the industry have taught me to recognize a great watch when I see one despite my own tastes, and the BR 03-93 GMT is a great watch.
A lot of brands focus on making sporty watches big and bold, forgetting the power of refined details. Bell & Ross doesn’t. There are small things that excite me about the BR 03-93 GMT, starting with the case. Its square case is very charismatic but also well executed with its polished, beveled edges and aligned screws. These details also do a lot for the wearing comfort as at a diameter of 42 x 42 mm it is not a small watch. Looking at the dial, it is hard not to notice how organically the date is integrated; you don’t really see it until you need it. Bell & Ross opted for a round window sunk into the dial. The hour markers are shaped like tubs filled with luminous material, adding depth to the dial. My favorite detail is the Arabic numerals, which lay on top and feature a refined brushed finish.
When traveling, I tend to bring only one watch – the one on my wrist. So it needs to suit a wide variety of activities, including some that take place in the water. It is great that Bell & Ross didn’t cut corners in this respect, giving the BR 03-93 GMT 100-meter water resistance. If getting it wet, the cool-looking leather strap is perhaps not the best option. But fortunately Bell & Ross also offers comfortable synthetic fabric straps with the watch.
For me, this is still one of the greatest movements with a second time zone. It is relatively slender yet robust, can easily run within chronometer standards, and when it needs servicing it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
All told, the BR 03-93 GMT is the complete package, combining charismatic character with all the features you could want in a mechanical travel watch. Now let’s get out there and explore!

From team principals to influencers, TAG Heuer replica was out in force last weekend at the Monaco Grand Prix. For a decade, TAG Heuer has been the official watch of the Monaco Grand Prix. And while the brand is not officially a title sponsor of Formula 1, TAG Heuer and their eponymous Monaco timepiece call Monaco home once a year. For this year’s Monaco Grand Prix, the first since 2019, high quality copy TAG Heuer pulled out all the stops. CEO Frédéric Arnault was seen schmoozing with actor Tom Holland in the pit lane. While up in the VIP suite, guests were given complimentary PCR tests and allowed to partake in the revelry of the most glamourous race on F1’s calendar.
A Special Watch For A Special Race TAG Heuer announced a new limited edition Monaco timepiece in advance of the weekend’s festivities, the new Swiss automatic fake TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition. Like other brands in the LVMH portfolio, TAG Heuer has been embracing the limited edition trend. This new Monaco sports a Grade 2 titanium case and monochrome colorway. Powered by the TAG Heuer Calibre 11 automatic movement, this 39mm timepiece boats a silver sunray-brushed dial with two black chronograph counters. Red accents can also be found at the 12 o’clock hour marker and on the central seconds hand. On the night before the race, TAG Heuer’s invited guests assembled at the Hôtel Hermitage for a private dinner party hosted by His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer. At the event, Prince Albert II and Max Verstappen were given two one-of-a-kind titanium case copy TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition with personalized markings. In a press release, Arnault hinted that Verstappen’s new Monaco might have given the Dutch driver the extra boost needed to win the Monaco Grand Prix, saying, “We are especially delighted that our newest and personalized Monaco Titan seemed to have brought him luck and I hope it continues to do so on Max’s and the team’s quest for the world championship title.” The good news is that you don’t need to be a Formula 1 driver or Prince to obtain the new waterproof copy TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition. The timepiece is limited to 500 pieces and is priced at $7,900. It’s still available on TAG Heuer’s website as of writing. A Storybook Ending Of course, with all the buzz on social media, TAG Heuer hoped for a good result for the race.
Monégasque driver and Richard Mille ambassador Charles Leclerc put his Ferrari on the pole. But due to a crash in the last seconds of qualifying, his mechanics had to rebuild his car overnight. Unfortunately, while taking his warmup laps, Leclerc found that his team hadn’t fully assembled his drivetrain, so he retired before the race had even begun. Leclerc’s failure to start vaulted Max Verstappen’s Red Bull Honda Racing RB16B to the top spot, and after the lights went out on the TAG Heuer timing screen, Verstappen led nearly every one of the 78 laps. He went on to a commanding 8.968-second victory over the Ferrari of Carlos Sainz. Up next for cheap fake TAG Heuer is the Indianapolis 500, where the brand has been the Official Timekeeper and Scorer since 2004.
Fidel Castro smoked his cigars with a Rolex GMT-Master and a gold Datejust on the same wrist. Winston Churchill had a Breguet rattrapante minute repeater pocket watch close at hand. Zenith replica doesn’t need a revolutionary or a statesman to make the cigar/watch connection, it does so all by itself. And has been doing so since 2016 when Zenith created a special El Primero Cohiba chronograph for the cigar brand’s 50th anniversary. Five years later the luxury fake Zenith Chronomaster Open Cohiba 55th Anniversary Edition watch debuts.
The fact that cigar smokers, no matter how famous they are, wear watches is nothing to write about. What is interesting though is the fact that both high-end cigars and high horology watches are artisanal products; examples of exquisite craftsmanship. High-quality first-class materials too. And it takes a lot of time, effort, dedication, and skill, to either hand-roll a cigar or to assemble a complicated watch.
It’s not just Zenith that sees the connection between cigars and watches, and, perhaps more importantly, the overlap between cigar aficionados and watch connoisseurs. For instance, Hublot made a cigar-themed watch with engraved tobacco leaves on the case and bezel. And independent ArtyA used real tobacco leaves for the dial in its Son of Earth Tobacco Collection. Zenith didn’t explore the world of cigar materials. Therefore, the stainless steel case copy Zenith Chronomaster Open Cohiba 55th Anniversary Edition watch shows its link to Cohiba more conservatively through the use of color. Zenith Chronomaster Open Cohiba 55th Anniversary Edition Watch 2021 marks the year of Cohiba’s 55th anniversary. It is safe to say that Cohiba is one of the most distinguished and revered Cuban cigar makers. Zenith super clone joins the celebration with an exclusive commemorative edition of the Chronomaster Open, the Cohiba 55th Anniversary Edition, a limited edition of 55 pieces with a price of €9,700. Cohiba’s signature saffron yellow color together with the design codes of the packaging and paper bands that wrap its hand-rolled cigars, reflect in the dial of the new Chronomaster Open. As a result, the combination of yellow and white on a black checkered motif will immediately ring a bell with passionate cigar smokers. A yellow chronograph seconds hand with a star-shaped counterweight and a black alligator leather strap complete the look. It’s a look that clearly says “Havanna” or “Cuba libre” if you’re having a glass of rum and coke with your cigar and chronograph. The quality copy Zenith Chronomaster Cohiba 55th Anniversary Edition (ref. 03.2041.4061/55.C496) will be available at Zenith boutiques and select retailers around the world from October of this year.
The Chopard Happy Sport replica for women is a well known figure on the watch market, having first been unveiled in 1993. Now as it hurtles towards its 30th anniversary, Chopard has launched two new Happy Sport models that are based on that very first model from ’93. The watch was conceived by Chopard Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele, stated in 1993 at its launch that the luxury fake Happy Sport was: “A watch that I could wear all day long: at the gym, in the office or for a dinner in town.” This versatility was possible, in some parts, thanks to its stainless-steel sporty case style with the addition of diamonds. And it’s the diamonds that are the clever bit.
To the observer, the white dial copy Chopard Happy Sport seemingly has diamonds that happily cascade around the face of the watch. The seven ‘dancing diamonds’ are each encased in a spinning-top capsule that moves freely between a sandwich of two sapphire crystals, which is a clever optical illusion that is manufactured entirely in-house by the artisans at Chopard. In fact, it was Scheufele’s mother who first discovered the original prototype that was made in 1976 and made the point that diamonds are “happier when they are free”. And freely they seemingly dance on the wrist with each movement of your day.
The best quality copy Happy Sport the First watches are available in two versions, both 33mm stainless-steel cases based on the original design. The first version is available in a launch-year-referencing 1,993 pieces with a silver dial that has blue Roman numerals that echo the blue cabochons on the winding crown and four lugs. The second watch is available in a run of 788, a lucky number for Scheufele, with a diamond set bezel and textured mother-of-pearl dial.
The steel case copy Chopard Happy Sport is more than just a pretty face though, boasting an in-house movement that is entirely designed and produced by Chopard. Calibre 09.01C is automatic and has a 42-hour power reserve and is made up of 148 components. A watch’s bracelet is key to its overall aesthetic and Chopard has developed, again fully in-house, a four-pebble link bracelet. Similar in concept to a beads of rice bracelet, the pebble bracelet promises fluidity and comfort on the wrist.
To help celebrate the launch of the new watches, Chopard has enlisted Julia Roberts. Says Caroline Scheufele, “It was her and nobody else! Julia Roberts was the only person I felt could convey the spirit that I see in Happy Sport.” Julia Roberts stars in a video (see below) that was directed by Xavier Dolan who was also responsible for the artistic direction of a photoshoot with Shayne Laverdière.
Hublot copy has kicked off its 2021 release calendar with a new diamond pavé watch created especially for women. The 33mm replica Hublot Big Bang One Click feels like a fresh addition to any wardrobe and fits with the spring/summer trends we’re expecting to see. Best of all, there are multiple colors to choose from. I chose pink as it’s a strap like no other. But how did I find this petite but far-from-quiet Hublot after a few days on the wrist?
The New 33mm Hublot Big Bang One Click The new diamonds bezel copy Hublot Big Bang One Click is bold, dazzling, and pink. And yet the biggest news is not its color but rather its size. Here we have a new case size — 33mm. This is the first time the One-Click system has been available in this diameter. It seems that Hublot has been studying social media and has been affected by Instagram trends had an effect on what Hublot came up with. First of all, smaller watches are back. Secondly, colorful, princess-inspired jewelry seems to be spring/summer’s hottest accessory. So why not translate it into watches? I think that bringing this trend into the luxury world is not only fun but also an interesting move on Hublot’s part. The futuristic case, made of King Gold, white rubber, and diamonds — 36 of them — is classic Hublot. The butter-wouldn’t-melt color scheme? That is decidedly less so…
Every Watch-Girl Needs Some Straps Hublot is capitalizing on current trends. That much we can see. But underneath the syrupy sweetness of the new pink strap, this is a really nice addition to the catalog. The 33mm Hublot Big Bang One Click copy with king gold case features an interchangeable strap system, which is a blessing for watch collectors that like to flip their straps to match their threads. There are several options: structured lined rubber straps in black, green, red, orange, pink, white, sky blue, and royal blue, or calfskin straps in terracotta orange. raspberry pink, and electric blue. What’s your flavor? The HUB1120 Inside this Hublot replica watch with Swiss movement, we find the in-house self-winding movement HUB1120 which offers a 40-hour power reserve. Moreover, it features hours, minutes, seconds, and a date window blacked at 3 o’clock. The HUB1120 is exquisitely finished with a signature Hublot’s rotor. Price and Availability I think especially during the lockdown we became more sensitive towards new trends. We don’t consume as much as we did and, of course, our shopping behavior has changed. I wonder if this smaller Big Bang concept will attract more women into the watch game. It certainly made me give the brand a second look, but what are your thoughts on that matter? Let us know in the comments below. One more thing: the retail price of this specific model is €22,700. While the prices for other models vary from €12,400 to €29,000.

Every vote counts because only the top four will make it through to the next round. Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Replica With Navy Blue Dial
It comes as no surprise the cheap copy Tudor watch claimed the top spot in the preliminary round. The Tudor Black Bay 58 offers incredible value for money. How can you beat a design rooted in the brand’s past, an in-house movement, a perfect size case, and an overall top-notch execution? But most of all the blue bezel fake Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight is simply a stunning watch. On a stainless steel bracelet, it turns out to be just perfect in size and appearance even for my 18cm wrist. And considering the results in the preliminary round, you seemed to agree. 42 MM Fake Panerai Submersible Goldtech
Panerai is a brand known for making grand statements. And this 42mm Submersible Goldtech is a statement you guys greatly appreciate. I read plenty of comments praising the 42mm version of the black rubber strap replica Panerai Submersible Goldtech. By decreasing the size, the brand made sure this beautiful piece wasn’t too in your face. In 2020 Panerai also released the 44mm Submersible Goldtech OroCarbo in an equal color combination only with brushed finishes of the case and bezel. It another way of managing the bling factor. But the sweet spot for this brilliant combo of black and gold is with this 42mm Submersible Goldtech.
Although the dials came in various color combinations that weren’t always pleasing (to put it diplomatically), this red-orange-cream variation from Mike’s collection truly ticks all the striking boxes. The metallic lume hands match the applied and robust markers perfectly, giving the dial a robust edge. The red maroon and cream combination is both elegant and disturbing, a perfect embodiment of the racing spirit for me.
It is very striking in comparison to the perfect replica TAG Heuer line-up. The neon orange chronograph hands seals the deal. A true ’70s design gem that does passionate justice to the Temporada Formula races held in Buenos Aires, Argentina during the late 1940s through the early 1950s.
It may only be the start of 2021, but today Swiss made fake Omega set the tone for its year, unveiling the latest update to its iconic fake Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. The Moonwatch— which is best known for accompanying NASA astronauts in their journeys to the watch’s namesake celestial body from 1969 and onward — is today one of the watch world’s most recognizable models. In an effort to stay true to that history, and to maintain that iconic energy, the brand has chosen to update the latest releases on the technical side rather than stylistically. The most substantial upgrades are the inclusion of a new Master Chronometer-certified movement — 2019’s Caliber 3861, which replaces the Moonwatch’s previous standard Caliber, the 1861 — as well as several new case-material options.
Four different watches comprise the new launch, each of which is further subdivided into two different references based on their accompanying strap and bracelet options, making for eight total new additions to the Omega catalog. These include a steel model with a sapphire crystal; another steel variation with the historical hesalite glass; a Canopus (white) gold model with a white dial; and a Sedna (rose) gold variation with a black dial. Outside of the colorway and materials, each watch bears the same classic design scheme.
AAA best replica Omega, as a testament to its faith in that iconic design, has mostly kept true to the original vintage spirit of the fourth-generation Speedmaster of 1965, from which the modern versions takes most of their inspiration. The 42-mm case has alternating brushed and polished finishing throughout. On its top and bottom are slightly twisted lugs, a signature of the series, connecting the watch to either a five-link metal bracelet with alternating finishes or to a leather or canvas strap, depending on the specific reference. On the right side of the case, the Moonwatch’s asymmetrical style is in full view via the slight extensions seen around the grooved, signed crown as well as the watch’s standard pump pushers. Interestingly, the watches use the push/pull-style crown seen on previous models in the series, rather than a screw-down type, which allows for a solid but relatively uninspiring 50-meter water resistance.
Surrounding the dial is the familiar fixed bezel with a tachymetric scale, which secures the crystal, made of either sapphire or hesalite depending on the reference. On the dial proper, we find a slightly stepped facet, with indentations for the subdials and an outer minute ring providing the matte coloring life and texture. On the outer edge is a chronograph-style minute ring — one which the original Speedmaster models of the mid-century helped to establish — while printed lume-filled markers indicate each hour, along with the significant double-dot at the 12 o’clock position.
The aforementioned indented subdials, positioned at three of the quarter-hour markers, include a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, and a running seconds counter at 9 o’clock. At 12 o’clock is an applied Omega symbol, with “Omega,” “Speedmaster,” and “Professional” printed in white directly below it. Sweeping over the dial are the Moonwatch’s signature lume-filled, sword-style hands for the hour and minute, while a stylized arrow pointer counts the chronograph seconds.
The new model offers two choices for its caseback, with some of the references, like the steel/hesalite model, using the traditional solid caseback, and others, like the steel/sapphire watch, opting for a more modern sapphire-exhibition style. The solid caseback is heavily stylized with printed descriptors of the watch and the series’ famous seahorse emblem, engraved at its center and surrounded by double beveling. The exhibition back has some of the same descriptors, much smaller, printed on the edge around the sapphire window that showcases the caliber.
Speaking of the caliber, all of the references contain the Omega Co-Axial Caliber 3861, one of Omega’s most championed hand-wound movements in its modern catalog. It features 28 jewels and runs at a frequency of 21,600 vph. It boasts a Master Chronometer certification by METAS, has an antimagnetic rating up to 15,000 gauss, and is capable of a 50-hour power reserve. As mentioned earlier, the 3861 is the updated version of the vintage Caliber 1861, now featuring a co-axial escapement and a silicon balance spring which help add to its accuracy, power reserve, and anti-magnetic resistance.
The 1:1 best fake watch takes its inspiration from a model from 1965, and in an effort to maintain that spirit includes a number of small details to establish itself in the 55-year canon of the Moonwatch: the slightly asymmetrical case, twisted lugs, stepped dial, and double-bevel caseback (on the solid-back models) are all obvious features, but even more subtle touches include the dot over 90 (“DON”), and the dot diagonal to 70, on the aluminum bezel ring.
Despite the watch’s aesthetic faithfulness to its historical source material, high-quality replica Omega has also worked to upgrade the model from a technical perspective, and push some of the references in a more modern direction — i.e., with the use of Caliber 3861 and the addition of sapphire casebacks to some models, the latter a departure from most of the flagship Moonwatch models. Furthermore, the re-introduction of a rose-gold version of the watch, along with its first white-gold variant, points to the model’s continuing evolution from a sports watch to a luxury item.
With 2021 not being an anniversary year for the Speedmaster, and 2020 hosting the much praised 50th Anniversary “Silver Snoopy Award” edition, it is no surprise Omega decided to keep its updates to the line more conservative than some fans of the brand might have expected. Nonetheless, with a new caliber and some fresh new material options, Omega’s standard-bearer has a received a welcome refresh, and one that resets the conversation around the Speedmaster collection heading into the new year.
Pricing for the new Speedmasters varies widely, with the steel/hesalite models marked at $6,300 on a metal bracelet and $5,950 on a canvas strap; and the steel/sapphire models priced at $7,150 on a metal bracelet and $6,800 on a leather strap. The two gold models only have pricing available in Swiss Francs as of yet, with the Canopus gold model priced at CHF 41,900 on a white-gold bracelet and at CHF 28,100 on a leather strap, while the Sedna gold model is marked at CHF 32,200 on a matching gold bracelet and CHF 22,800 on black leather.
Way back at Baselworld 2015, Patek Philippe replica launched a travel time-equipped Calatrava that took much of the Patek enthusiast base by surprise. Offered (at the time) exclusively in white gold and measuring 42mm wide, the blue dial fake Patek Philippe Calatrava ref.5524G was a spin on some vintage pilot’s watches made by Patek in the 1930s with luminous Arabic numerals and a pilot-inspired handset over a deep matte blue dial sporting Patek’s clever travel time complication.
With trick locking crowns and a brown leather strap, immediate feedback was polarizing so, for this “Letter To The Editor”-style post from April of 2015, we spoke to a trio of bonafide Patek experts (including our own Ben Clymer) to get their thoughts on this unexpected and vintage-inspired design. Now, some five years later, the Patek Philippe replica with white gold case has proven to be a popular model for the brand – so where did the experts land back in 2015? Click below to find out.
