It’s always nice to take stock and remember what the past 12 months has brought us. When it comes to horology, deciding on the best Swiss replica watches of 2023 is totally subjective – so instead of rolling out what we think have been this year’s best watches, watch experts joined forces to compile a list of the hypest moments in all-things-watches.
Maybe It’s Tyler, the Creator’s Next Crush?
Crash, Pebble, Baignoire, Baguette, and Tanks galore: just some of the Cartier models in Renaissance man Tyler, the Creator’s banging watch collection. Given his prowess for hunting down rare Cartiers we hazard a guess he’ll be drawn to the maison’s fresh re-edition 1:1 UK fake Cartier Tank Cintrée watches in platinum (£36,900). The successor to the original Tank, the 1921 Cintrée underscored Cartier’s title as master of shapes, and now comes in ultra-chic 6.03mm thickness. A new blue Tank Louis Cartier copy watches for sale (£14,700) also just dropped, limited to 170 pieces, and it also seems destined for Tyler’s collection – maybe yours, too.
Jonathan Bailey Has Better Watch Stories Than You
Accidentally flushing a watch down the loo mightn’t be uncommon (“I kept taking it off to wash my hands”), but having your vintage Swatch confiscated at Glastonbury for sticking a wristband to it with chewing gum (“I was trying to sneak someone else into a certain area”)? That’s a first. Over the years, Bridgerton boy Jonathan Bailey’s relationship with cheap replica watches has taken some twists and turns.
“My dad had an Omega De Ville watch, so for me that’s always been a signifier of adulthood and sophistication – but I remember struggling to wear it on my left wrist,” says Bailey. “I thought it was because I wasn’t sophisticated enough.” Thankfully, Omega’s latest ambassador has since found his own way to express himself through luxury super clone watches – linking them to something he knows all too well: stories.
My first watch… was from the Royal Shakespeare Company when I was six. I was in A Christmas Carol playing Tiny Tim, who gets bought a watch by the director on the first night. I really thought it was the most special thing. I looked after it so well… until I dropped it down the loo.
I remember climbing Kilimanjaro… getting to the top, and my watch – not an Omega – had stopped working. Omega can literally take you to the moon and back. The different levels of magnetic protection and the water resistance both blow my mind; the fact that fake watches wholesale can turn heads on a red carpet, as well as hang out at the bottom of the sea is amazing. Punching a shark in the nose with a Seamaster is a thing, right?
For me, watches encapsulate… why humans are drawn to mastery and process, but also to magic. I’ve grown to realise high quality replica watches are an extension of you and your identity. If you’re lucky enough to have more than one watch, you can duck and dive and they can become representative of how you’re feeling and where you’re at.
Breitling Adds More Avengers
Hear the word “Avenger” and you’d be forgiven if your mind jumped to the MCU. But Thor, Iron Man, and company all exist in a parallel, make-believe universe; in this reality, the only Avenger we care about is perfect replica Breitling’s pilot watches. More than 20 years on from its debut, the new collection of Avenger models is testament to the brand’s long history in aviation. CEO Georges Kern prides himself on finding new ways to celebrate that heritage, hence the diverse line-up spanning a 44mm chronograph (£6,350), a 44mm automatic GMT, and a 42mm automatic in black, blue, green, or sand.
