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.

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.
Has John Mayer been teaching Shawn Mendes about replica watches? Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes, most famous for his hit song “Senorita”, seems to be developing a keen eye for fine wrist candy. Last year we spotted Mendes with a rather tasty Rolex Datejust set on the brand’s trademark gold and silver jubilee bracelet and inky blue dial, when stepping out with his girlfriend. What’s interesting is that Mendes is often seen wearing it dressed casually in jeans and a sweatshirt. The Datejust also happens to be Patrick Bateman’s favourite watch, which is mentioned 26 times in American Psycho. By wearing it in a casual context, Mendes shows that you don’t need to be a swaggering Wall Street tycoon in order to look good in a classic Rolex. Indeed, a Datejust is the perfect way to start a collection of fine watches.
What’s even more interesting is his friendship with the highly influential collector, John Mayer, the singer-songwriter who is almost as famous for his watch collection as he is his music. Mayer has been known to advise Drake on watch purchases and it looks like he may have done the same for Mendes. Mayer hosts an IGTV show called Current Mood in which he goofs around with other celebrities and can often be seen wearing something special from his outstanding collection. In the episode in which Mendes joins him, his friend can be seen wearing a stainless steel case fake Audemars Piguet Royal Royal Oak. Designed by Gerald Genta, this grail watch has been spotted on pretty much every well-dressed male celebrity of the past 10 years or so, and comes in many iterations from insanely blinged out (checkout Travis Scott’s jewel encrusted, skeletonised version), to Mendes’ elegant gun metal grey version.
This is the original design that Genta first presented to Audemars Piguet replica in 1970. Having it in steel, sans jewels and skeleton, is in many ways, the most pure way to enjoy a Royal Oak. After all, its genius lies in the fact that Genta managed to alchemise a utilitarian material such as steel and somehow made it more desirable than gold. Key to this was the clever way in which the links of the bracelet were polished so that the light bounces and shimmers off it in such a magical way that it seems as though you could be wearing diamonds, rather than plain old steel. Again, Mendes wears Audemars Piguet copy with blue dial this in a typically low key, casual way, often in jeans and T-shirt on stage, with a guitar slung around his neck. Which goes to show, that however your dress, when it comes to building your watch collection, the classics never go out of style.
This was a year bookended by the launches of many amazing ladies’ watches that came to be seen as milestones for the industry. I’m thinking here of the world’s smallest tourbillon, the Serpenti Seduttori, or Zenith’s first-ever Defy Midnight. Most watch brands, it seems, are finally making timepieces for women that say something about both our times and lifestyle. And Swiss made replica Audemars Piguet with its 34mm Royal Oak is no exception. The Audemars Piguet’s 34mm Self-winding Royal Oak feels like the coolest and most-needed concept of the year. It perfectly displays the versatility of this industry stalwart. It is a testament to the appeal of Genta’s clean-lined design that a watch can be both masculine and feminine at the same time, based upon little more than its decoration. The silhouette is one that has been endlessly copied. Furthermore, it has inspired countless offshoots. But now, as this new 34mm iteration hits the shelves, we are reminded of the power of its DNA. That, and the fact that nothing can be beat the original… So why does this model feel like a revelatory release despite the fact that it’s the downsized version of a man’s watch? Well, what I admire with this particular model is its embracing simplicity and wearability. As such, it is one of my top ladies’ watches of 2020. Thanks, in large part, to the fact it highlights the coolness of laid-back femininity.
The Royal Oak for ladies
Looking at the Royal Oak women’s collection, before the launch of the 34mm version, the smallest self-winding watch came in a diameter of 37mm. Therefore, women who prefer smaller sizes may just opt for the 34 or 33mm variations with the quartz movement. For a while now, female watch enthusiasts have craved an AP automatic that keeps things petite. Consequently, AP is treating its clientele to the first self-winding 34mm Royal Oak. The execution is there (as always). The versatility is undeniable. And its character as a sporty watch? That remains, albeit somewhat embellished by a fresh helping of diamonds on the bezel.
Audemars Piguet’s willingness to play with the interpretation of its own DNA is compelling. In this new collection, we find the strongest AP’s statements: the “Grande Tapisserie” pattern, and the legendary bracelet. Let’s start with my favorite element — the bracelet. Satin and polished finishes, and perfect integration with the case nod to the art of craftsmanship. Personally, all aspects — the finish, brushed and polished edges, the way it reflects the light — leave me speechless. It is not another intricately detailed bracelet, the design is actually very smooth, and it sits comfortably on the smaller, feminine wrist. When we look at the dial, the devil is in the details. The grain pattern between the squares, as well as thick hands and indexes, signify Audemars Piguet’s in-depth exploration of women’s needs.
The details of AP’s 34mm Royal Oak
Because of its minimalist looks, what immediately stands out here (besides the three-dimensional impression) is its diamond-paved, octagonal bezel. It adds a certain depth to the well-known dial and, depending on the light, highlights the raw design. Speaking of design, the dimension of the case fused with the automatic mechanism is not the only novelty. This Swiss brand has made the watch slightly thicker (8.8mm). Unfortunately one always came at the cost of the other — in this case, it’s the thicker case, and the lower power reserve. The presence of a screw-down crown, however, ensures water resistance to 50 meters. One thing I would have changed here is the date window. I’m not at all keen on date windows on dials. They are too small to actually see the date, and setting the date is simply bothersome. I have two watches with date windows and never bother correcting them (if you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed…). Obviously, it’s a very personal viewpoint, but could you imagine this watch with 12 divine indexes instead of just 11?
Gold, or steel, that is the question.
The 34mm Royal Oaks come in pink gold, steel, and a mix of both. Here we present two versions: pink gold with silver-toned dial and 40 brilliant-cut diamonds, and stainless steel with blue dial and also 40 diamonds. I’ve stuck with steel watches for too long. Suddenly, I’m catching myself looking at gold watches. I must admit that the gold variation looks stunning, but the color could be more unique. What do you think? Let me know in the comment section. As for the steel version… Well, its classic AP. The retail price for diamond-encrusted models is $24,700 for the all-steel option and $47,600 for pink gold.
AP’s signature calibre 5800 powers the watch, with its reserve of 50 hours. It provides basic functions: hours, minutes, center seconds, and date. It measures 23.30mm × 3.9mm and beats at 28,800vph. Regardless of its amazing materials and unblemished quality, the winding rotor represents a refined embellishment, being specially made for the most recent release. And while the central area has a frosted look, the rest is adorned with brushed or polished surfaces.
Redefining the notion of ladies watches
Even though the 34mm fake Royal Oak is the downsized version of a men’s watch, there’s a feminine edge to this release. I find this model in this size as a must-have addition to the women’s line at Audemars Piguet. What’s more, it feels like it has been designed exclusively for women. In a world of diamond-paved watches, this is a cool timepiece to highlight one’s (read my) love for diamonds without seeming too ostentatious. If I could summarize 2020 in just a few words, I would say that it’s been a mind-blowing time to be a woman and to be passionate about watches. The ground-breaking shift in female clientele’s needs has found its alignment with an innovative stance. Identifying the values that ladies have brought to the table and creating timepieces exclusively for women has been the major highlight. Hopefully, this will continue to evolve.
The latest A. Lange & Söhne replica watch family is growing. The Odysseus ref. 363.038 now comes in white gold with an integrated rubber or leather strap. The sporty-elegant timepiece with the large-format date and day display and a water-resistant case features a grey dial with a special surface structure for a very textured effect. Launched on October 24, 2019, exactly 25 years to the day after the debut of their first new-era timepiece collection by Walter Lange and Günter Blümlein, it was obvious that the Odysseus was designed for active people who wish to wear their Lange watch even in situations when a precision mechanical model would ordinarily be set aside.
The second model of the new family combines a 40.5 mm 18K white gold case with a grey dial. White gold hands and notched baton appliques assure good legibility against the dark background. The numerals of the outsize date and the letters of the large-format day display stand out in white on grey. With a height of 2.4 mm, they are easily readable even in poor light conditions. Like the hour and minute hands, the hour markers are luminous. The embossed groove structure beneath the applied hour markers and the subsidiary seconds scale enhances the textured effect of the dial. It contrasts against the glossy matt inner surfaces of the main and subsidiary dials. The red 60 on the beveled silvered colored flange ring with the printed minute scale provides a subtle color accent.
The tapered buttons for correcting the day and the date are arranged above and beneath the crown. They accentuate the prominent shape of the three-part white gold case. The finishing of the case and the lugs are characterized by the interplay of brushed surfaces and polished chamfers. Integrated straps are available in hand-stitched leather or black rubber. As a matter of fact, the rubber strap is a first for the brand. The rubber strap also features air ducts on the inside for superb wearing comfort.
The perfect replica watch is powered by the L155.1 Datomatic manufacture calibre developed exclusively for the Odysseus. Its name stands for the combination of a date mechanism and automatic winding. To guarantee high rate accuracy regardless of external factors, the balance operates at a frequency of 28,800 vph. Recessed poising screws minimize air turbulence that could affect the rate. The movement has a maximum power reserve of 50 hours. The skeletonized and partially black-rhodium central rotor with a centrifugal mass in platinum assures dependable energy delivery. In line with Lange’s philosophy, all parts are lavishly hand-finished and the movement is assembled twice. Many artisanal details can be discovered with a glance through the sapphire- crystal case back. They include the German silver plate decorated with Glashütte ribbing, the wave pattern engraved on the balance bridge, and the screwed gold chaton above the escape wheel.
Hamilton replica extends its range of pilot watches with models that make conversions and calculations easy.
As any professional pilot will attest, there is nothing quite like the freedom of flight – bursting through clouds at 10,000 feet, the cockpit flooding with light as you arc upwards into the clear blue sky. But that freedom is based on technical calculations that a true aviator must be able to make with or without the aid of cockpit instruments.
Blue Dial Replica Hamilton Khaki Aviation Converter GMT Hamilton has provided the flying community with the precision timepieces they need for over a century, from the first U.S. Airmail service in 1918 to today’s daredevil air racers. With the Khaki Aviation Converter, the brand is enabling crucial flying calculations to be performed on the wrist of modern aviators.
The watch’s distinguishing feature is a bi-directional rotating bezel, whose logarithmic gradations interact with the fixed scale around the dial, creating a ‘slide rule’ enabling mathematical calculations while in flight. This can be applied to critical factors like airspeed, distance, fuel consumption, rate of climb or descent and flight time – in fact, it follows the same principles as the E6B “Whiz Wheel,” a paper flight computer that’s still used widely in pilot training today.
The slide-rule bezel is also handy for carrying out various unit conversions: kilometers/nautical miles, pounds/kilograms, feet/meters for instance, or currency conversions for those flying internationally. Hamilton Khaki Aviation Converter Auto and GMT Auto Already a powerful tool, the 42-mm automatic version of the Khaki Aviation Converter steps up the game with a balance spring made of NivachronTM alloy, an exclusive new material with superior resistance to magnetic fields. In the cockpit, having a watch unaffected by magnetic forces is critical, and by adding this superior balance-spring alloy, Hamilton ensures precision in any environment. Military pilots’ watches were the first to include anti-magnetic technology that countered the fields generated by radar instruments.
A sleek black dial high quality Hamilton fake watch houses the H-10 automatic movement with 80 hours of power reserve, and is available on a brown and black leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
If you’re looking to add even more function to your Khaki Aviation Converter, choose Hamilton’s 44-mm GMT designed with a blue dial and available with brown leather strap or bracelet. Powered by the H-14 movement, it includes 80 hours of power reserve, perfect for the globetrotting adventurer. Hamilton Khaki Aviation Converter Auto Chrono The Swiss automatic movement copy Hamilton Khaki Aviation Converter Automatic Chronograph rounds out the collection with its H-21-Si movement. Using a high-tech silicon balance spring, it negates the powerful magnetic forces found around airplane cockpits and flight decks.
The Khaki Aviation Converter is a combination of Swiss engineering and high demanding aviation equipment. More Information below.
In 2010, Richard Mille copy announced its partnership with tennis phenom Rafael “Rafa” Nadal, along with a groundbreaking new watch, the RM 027. Light enough to elicit laughter when placed in your hands, the RM 027 is a marvel of engineering that is both tough enough to endure the incredible forces of life on Nadal’s wrist and light enough to float in water (yes, actually). Now, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Richard Mille’s relationship with Nadal, the RM 027 sees its fifth generation with the new and wondrously expensive RM 27-04.
Yes, following in the very shallow (barely visible, really) footsteps of the 027, we had 2013’s 27-01, 2015’s 27-02, 2017’s wild 27-03, and the stunning new RM 27-04. The spec list reads like a supercar compared to more common commuter fare options. Total weight? Thirty grams (with the strap!) and only 3.4 grams for the cable-suspended, manually-wound tourbillon movement. The case is made of something called “TitaCarb” and, like past examples, it’s been designed to be worn by Nadal while he’s playing tennis.
Measuring 38.4mm across, 47.25mm tip to toe, and 11.4mm thick, the 27-04 is a Richard Mille replica with skeletonized dial with a case made of the aforementioned TitaCarb, which is 38.5% carbon fiber to offer excellent tensile strength (3,700 km/cm², for those wondering) while being as light as possible. Sapphire crystals front and back offer a view of an incredibly cool – and tennis-inspired – movement design that is suspended in a lattice created by an 0.27mm diameter steel cable that holds the movement in place via two (red) turnbuckles. The weave of the steel cable is inspired by that of a tennis racket, and while it would be easy to simply try to make your tennis watch look like a racket, RM has gone the extra mile here and made a top quality fake watch that actually relies on a similar structure to support the movement and help it manage the shocks and G forces generated by a professional tennis player. In testing, the 27-04’s caliber RM27-04 was able to resist accelerative forces in excess of 12,000 Gs – which is a first for Richard Mille. Maintained by a pair of PVD-treated 5N gold tensioners, the super-tight weave of the cable forms a unique and exciting dial.
Suspended in that tiny 855 square millimeter net is the caliber RM27-04 movement, a tourbillon-equipped, manually-wound movement that has been fully skeletonized and can be seen from either side of the darkly matte featherweight case. As mentioned above, all of these elements come together in a package that is only 30 grams in weight. For reference, I recently weighed a steel 38.5mm three-hander from a popular microbrand at 134 grams with its bracelet sized. Want more? In 2017, Richard Mille fake announced the RM 50-03 McLaren F1, the lightest split-second chronograph in the world at the time. It weighs 40 grams. Finally, the original RM 027 weighed just 20 grams (19 for the RM 27-01), so while the 27-04 is a bit heavier, none of the previous Rafa RMs could match 12,000 Gs. You can only bend physics so far, at least until the 27-05. I’ve said it before, but despite the absolute fact that I will never own a Swiss replica Richard Mille, I just love the brand for what they do. And, if you’re like me (pragmatic in practice, but a romantic obsessive by nature), you might just see their watches like supercars: I love that they exist and that they are special. Likewise, I don’t follow tennis, but I think these are massively cool exercises in both cutting edge mechanical watchmaking and legitimately interesting ambassador marketing. With a headline-ready price of $1,050,000 and a total production run of just 50 units, while the RM 27-04 can certainly make your wallet feel a lot more than 30 grams lighter, that’s only a problem for a very small group of well-heeled and very privileged watch nerds. As for the rest of us, we’ll need to be happy enough with the hopes of someday seeing one pass by in traffic (or while watching Nadal hunt down more wins on the tennis court).
