Vintage fashion swiss replica watches for sale

As most of our readers know by now, here at Fratello Watches we love our vintage fashion swiss replica watches. Having said that, innovation in watchmaking, usage of modern materials and even the introduction of a groundbreaking technique are all crucial things we appreciate. When companies try to combine past and present, I always look at things carefully. What might be an obvious move for the brand might not be that clear for their clients. History is important and having a rich heritage makes things easier, I guess.

In this game Longines tends to be on top in recent years. Their Legend Diver for instance was a great hit due to the friendly price and the timeless yet classic design. Careful though; releasing too many vintage-inspired pieces can deteriorate the collection and even makes it boring after a while. This year however, Longines gave us a few heritage pieces again. Undoubtedly the most prominent of these retro watches was the Longines Heritage Diver 1967. Below, an image of the original version (photo from TZ-UK’s noiseboyuk).

When looking at diver watches one can easily point out that this watch does not exactly look like a model one would pick up for diving. The big boom in diver watches came in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s when men started to explore the sea after successfully concurring air and land. We all know what the bezel on these watches is used for (measuring the time the diver has before they run out of oxygen) but chronographs were not to be seen often. This function is also important while with the help of this complication the diver could calculate his/her speed or certain underwater activities.

Longines Heritage Diver

As the name indicates this new model is inspired by a diver chronograph that Longines introduced in 1967. Being a Heritage model it shares many features with the original watch, red (or as the company calls it bordeaux) bezel being the most obvious. That makes the watch so easily noticeable, even from a distance. As a side note: let me mention that Longines sub brand, Wittnauer, also had a similar chronograph with red bezel, however both that watch and the original 1967 Longines watch were 2 register dial only watches. Interesting to see that Longines kept the sub dial at 6 o’clock of their Longines Heritage Diver watch, while the other two sub dials are silvery/white. This way, it appears to be a 2 register while upon closer inspection, there are three. Well-played.

Going back to the Longines Heritage Diver 1967, it has the size that fits me perfectly at 42mm. Because of the black dial and rather dark bezel color the best replica watch wears normal, it does not feel that huge on the wrist, on the contrary. Nice elements are the vintage shaped chronograph pushers and the subtle red cross that runs through the dial, almost barley visible. Not to mention the 2 white sub dials at 9 and 3 which – just like the original –  are different sizes and the 3 o’clock sub register being the largest.

The heart of the watch is a 27-Jewel ETA based, self-winding, column wheel chronograph, especially made for Longines. It has an impressive power reserve of 54 hours. The dial is opaline black with a touch of silver colors on the sub dials. Super LumiNova coated indexes and hands make the watch more contemporary. Being a true diver watch it is water resistance to 30 bars (300m) with the help of a screw down crown and case back. Speaking of which, a diver engraved to the case back (common adornment of that era) finishes off the reasoned design of a timepiece true to the DNA of Longines diver discount fake watches for sale. There are 3 options the potential buyer can choose from, when it comes to straps; metal bracelet, rubber strap with diving extension or a plain black crocodile strap with diving buckle.

I suppose we can agree that Longines is on the right track with their heritage watches. The timepiece is simple and elegant yet interesting and sporty at the same time. They managed to find the balance between old and new and the combination is spot on. I can encourage you to go in to an AD and try one on, as I did not too long ago. If you don’t like it there are still many marvelous piece to choose from. Price of the Longines Legend Diver 1967, $3100 USD.

IWC Ingenieur Mission Earth Edition Adventure Ecology IW3236

The green production process of the fashion swiss replica watch uk sale online manufacturer in Schaffhausen, is something to be proud of. Not only IWC, but a lot of other companies seem to embrace durable entrepreneurship and corporate social responsibility. One of IWC‘s projects is to support projects like David de Rothshild‘s Plastiki Expedition. David de Rothschild and his Adventure Ecology organization built a 60 foot catamaran made entirely of plastic bottles, PET plastic and recycled waste products. With this ship, named the Plastiki, David and his carefully picked crew members will sail approx. 10,000 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to Sydney.
The name of this boat, Plastiki, was inspired by the famous Kon-Tiki expedition in 1947, lead by Thor Heyerdahl.

To ‘celebrate’ (and make some money of) this joint venture between IWC and David Rothschild, IWC launched the IWC Ingenieur Automatic Mission Earth Edition (Limited Edition). There will be 1000 pieces of this special edition Ingenieur Automatic. The Mission Earth watch has been covered here earlier this year, right after the SIHH 2009.

I have to get one thing of my chest immediately, I LOVE the fact that IWC didn’t put a transparant case back on this watch. That does NOT belong on an Ingenieur watch. I suspect that they have a stainless steel case back installed in order to get the engravings and inscriptions right, but still… A watch that is famous for its anti-magnetic construction should not be transformed into a ‘fashion’ watch.

If you take a look at the picture above (by IWC press), you will also see another neat feature. The inside of the strap has the same little shapes as the dial of the Ingenieur. Way cool! The engraving in the back is nice as well, optical finish is something you can leave to IWC for that matter. The Adventure Ecology and Plastiki inscription is very futuristic, matching perfectly by the further design and ‘joint venture’ reason of this watch.

Inside this watch ticks IWC’s inhouse caliber 80110 movement. Some people might think that this is just a de-chrono’ed ETA (Valjoux) 7750, but that’s not the case. I have written an article on that subject about a year ago which you can find by clicking here. The case of this watch has a 46mm diameter (similar to the BIG Ingenieur) and a height of 15mm.

As you can see above, the watch is very blue-ish, reminding me a bit of the Jacques Cousteau Aquatimers IWC launched in 2004. This blown-up version of the regular IWC Ingenieur ref. 3227-01 (discontinued in 2009) has two major differences in comparison to the ‘original’ IWC Ingenieur Automatic, except for the colors and the size. These are the crown guards, which were applied to the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph, but not on the regular 3227-01 version. Owning one myself, I can’t say the absence of it bothers me, but I can imagine the ‘request’ for them. The other major difference, and this is actually only easy to witness when you have the Mission Earth in your hands, is the lack of sharpness on the edges of the casing. I have held this watch in my hands during the Dutch IWC show over at Ace Jewelers, not too long ago, and this was the first difference that I noticed about the watch when holding it. Therefor, this discount luxury replica  watch has a completely different feel (at least to me).

So, in conclusion, what do I like about this watch and what’s not to like. The design is still intact despite the supersizing and the addition of crown guards. The stainless steel case back (instead of a transparant case back) is also a pro. Then of course, for the techies, the movement is a nice inhouse caliber with IWC’s Pellaton winding system. These movements are quite accurate as well, adopting IWC’s own standards for this, instead of using the more generic COSC standards.

When this best fashion swiss replica watch will be worn on a daily basis or as ‘your only watch’, the colors are a bit too much I think. I also think the blue strap could be seen as ‘looking cheap’ for many. However, to me, the major setback is the lack of sharp edges of the case. The design of this watch is so incredibly cool in my opinion, and it should feel as it looks. Sharp. And it doesn’t. If you remember my review on the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15300 that I wrote recently, you know how much I care about the ‘feel’ of watches with a design like these.

With a list price of a mere 9K USD and the fact that there are some cons about this watch, I am happy that I have the discontinued (that has been produced from 2005 till now) 3227-01 model. A tribute to the original SL1832 Ingenieur in my opinion, without losing its own identity. It is cheaper too, and I really don’t see why the Mission Earth has to cost more. It makes no sense to me.

5 Fashion Brands You Didn’t Know Made Men’s Mechanical Watches

Watches bearing the names of big fashion houses tend to get written off by serious tag heuer replica watches aficionados, who tend to think of them as only for ladies or, worse, only inexpensive pieces with quartz movements. In addition to brands like Hermes, Ralph Lauren, and Chanel, who have taken strides to establish themselves in the world of men’s mechanicals, here are five other such brands that may have flown under your radar.
