Ever since February 2020 it has been possible to buy identical best US Omega replica watches to that worn by Daniel Craig in his swansong role as James Bond in No Time to Die – and it’s not even a limited edition.
But while the 42mm, titanium-cased Swiss made fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300m ‘007’ watches undeniably looks the part with its ‘tropical’ dial markings and choice of mesh bracelet or ‘NATO’-style nylon strap, how much cooler would it be to own the real thing – ie the ACTUAL watch worn in the film?
If the thought appeals, start saving now – because 007’s own perfect replica Omega Seamaster watches is set to cross the block as one of the star lots in a Christie’s charity auction being held in conjunction with EON Productions to mark the 60th anniversary of the Bond movie franchise.
But while the commercial model of the 1:1 copy watches can be bought for £7,260, the movie-worn version is estimated to fetch up to £20,000 for gender equality group Time’s Up UK – although that might prove decidedly conservative, not least since the Seamaster Planet Ocean worn by Craig for his 007 debut in ‘Casino Royale’ realised Sfr 250,250 at auction 15 years ago.
The AAA replica Omega Diver 300M 007 Edition watches was designed with Craig’s input and is seen on several occasions in No Time to Die, most prominently in the so-called ‘third act’ when 007 gadget man Q (Ben Wishaw) and Agent Nomi ( Lashana Lynch) are heading towards the island lair of villain Lyutsifer Safin (Rami Malek) ‘somewhere in the sea of Japan’ in a Boeing Globemaster transport plane.
During the flight, Q presents Bond with the new luxury fake watches, explaining that he has fitted it with a coiled device capable of emitting a ‘limited radius electro-magnetic pulse’ that will ‘short any circuit in a hard-wired network – if you get close enough.’
When Bond asks Q “How strong is it?” Q replies: “Fairly strong….we haven’t had the time to test it properly, just be careful….”
Inevitably Bond uses the EMP to get out of trouble, notably by using it to explode the electronic eye worn by Safin henchman Primo (Dali Benssalam) during a dramatic fight scene in Safin’s chemical works, killing Primo in the process.
Afterwards, Bond says to Q via radio link: “I just showed someone your Swiss movements super clone watches. It really blew their mind…”
The high quality replica Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M watches that Craig wears in No Time to Die will also be up for grabs and carries the same £15,000 – £20,000 estimate.
It appears during the film’s dramatic opening sequences in Matera, Italy, where the shock resistant capabilities of the fake watches for sale are put to the test through fights, explosions, bridge jumps, motorcycle stunts and a bullet-heavy car chase. Proceeds from the sale will go to eye charity Orbis.
A third and final top replica watches lot included in the sale takes the form of a limited edition set of two Seamasters in a Globe Trotter presentation case.
Number 229 from an edition of 227 sets made to mark 50 years since the release of the Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, it contains one steel watch and one gold one and is estimated to fetch £40,000 – 60,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes research Foundation.
In total the sale will feature 60 lots, one to mark each year since the release of the original Bond film, Dr No, in 1962.
The auction will comprise a 25-lot live, invitation-only event taking place in London on September 28 and a further, online-only sale of 35 lots that will run from September 15 until ‘James Bond Day’ on October 5.
Highlights include 10 vehicles used in various Bond films, including the Aston Martin DB5 stunt car seen in the opening scenes of No Time to Die.
Estimated to raise up to £2m for the Prince’s Trust and Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund, it is the most valuable item in the sale which is expected to raise in excess of £3m overall.
When I think of vintage luxury US replica Rolex Datejust watches, the first one that comes to mind is with a fluted bezel and a Jubliee bracelet. And there is certainly a place for classic Datejusts, but I’m particularly fond of the Datejust from the era where this example hails from. It’s unmistakably a Datejust but also unmistakably a vintage design before this model evolved into a more recognizable flagship model for Swiss made Rolex fake watches.
While I know there will be a large divide between people who either love or hate the patina on the dial, I’d say it’s a greenlight for me on this one. Yes, it’s not a pristine dial; as a matter of fact, it’s far from it. But with vintage, that’s what makes perfect replica watches compelling because it’s what is uniquely pleasing to you. You need to know your own threshold of how far a patina is attractive for you. Wouldn’t you agree?
Having said that, for me, the best feature on this best copy watches is none other than the Bamboo bezel with the notches as hour markers, as opposed to the more visually impactful fluted bezel or an engine-turned bezel on the later ref. 1603 models. The Bamboo bezel feels as though it has the best of both worlds, somewhere between a smooth bezel and a fluted bezel. It feels not too little and not too much. It was most likely carried over from the various creations from the 1950s, ranging from the Precision to the Swiss movements replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual families watches. So I also appreciate it from a historical perspective on the design evolution of the bezels.
I wish we could bring this Bamboo bezel back. If Rolex can surprise us with left-handed Rolex GMT-Master II super clone watches shop site out of nowhere, I still have hope that maybe one day, we’ll see this vintage glory back in their modern AAA cheap fake Rolex Datejust collection watches.
What makes a dive watch a dive watch? Simple: it must adhere to ISO 6425, an international standard that sets out minimum requirements for water and shock resistance. When it comes to military replica watches online, however, no such clarity exists – and that’s a problem. It has led to all kinds of brands borrowing the design language of the field watch and marketing their timepiece as “military” without any guarantee that it’s fit for purpose.
No wonder, then, that makers of true military-grade wristwear are setting themselves apart with bold and fantastical articulations of their credentials, be that IWC’s recent Top Gun collaboration or Breitling’s Aviator 8 tribute to the P-40 Warhawk fighter plane, which was manufactured at the same time that Breitling was supplying cockpit components to the RAF. Younger dial names face a challenge, because they don’t have the benefit of a long history. Bremont, which was established in 2002, has thus sought out a seal of approval. Its collection includes perfect US fake watches “approved by Her Majesty’s armed forces”, since it is now the sole luxury watch producer allowed to legitimately use the insignia of all three services.
Whatever interpretation of the military watch genre takes your fancy, there’s a toughness and sense of adventure that unites every timepiece that falls under the mantra. These high quality replica watches aren’t made to cower alone at home, but embrace the great outdoors in all its muddy, messy glory. So here’s our pick of the best military watches available…
Breitling Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Mosquito Replica Watches
A brand indelibly linked to military aviation, top Swiss fake Breitling’s Aviator 8 B01 collection is inspired by the watches worn by early British airmen. With the Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Mosquito, the brand pays tribute to British Second World War plane the de Havilland Mosquito. Powered by the in-house Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01 movement, the AAA copy watches has a 43mm stainless-steel case water-resistant to 100 metres and a bezel in matte-black DLC coating with white numerals. The black dial features high-contrast silver sub-dials and red and orange accents, as used on the body of the Mosquito. The piece is presented on a vintage-style, brown leather strap. £6,230.
Replica Rolex Explorer II Watches
The luxury replica Rolex Explorer II watches has a crisp military aesthetic, but there is a caveat. Despite being an undeniably tough cookie, the resale value of the Explorer II means you’d be a stronger man than us to bring it on even a beginner’s grade mountain trail. None of which takes away from the fact that it is tool super clone watches wholesale royalty on its smooth bracelet. For a more casual vibe try it on a bespoke Nato strap, an even better way to make that arctic white dial pop. £7,550.
