Although our old pal Eric Ku didn’t make the trip over to Geneva this year, he was top-of-mind for everyone in attendance after an early luxury fake Cartier London Crash CA sold for over $1.5 million through his online auction platform, Loupe This. Suddenly, one of the hottest areas of the vintage watch market was at a fever pitch – all eyes were on shaped 1:1 Cartier replica wristwatches at all four auction houses.
The sales didn’t disappoint. Cloches were clocking in at crazy figures at Christie’s and Antiquorum. An awesome Grand super clone Cartier Tank Cintrée with provenance from Hollywood’s Golden Age approached six figures at Christie’s. A wild cloisonné enamel Tortue that might have struggled to find an audience a year ago nearly doubled its high estimate at Sotheby’s. And it was impossible to miss the Parallélogramme at Phillips.
All attention, however, was on lot 133 at Christie’s, a 1990 AAA replica Cartier London Crash, to see if it could come close to replicating the jaw-dropping Loupe This figure. While it didn’t top a million bucks, it sure came close, settling in at CHF 819,000, a seriously impressive total for a ’90s London Crash.
It’s not only an aggressive result but also a sign of how the high quality fake Cartier Crash market is expanding. There are a number of fairly significant differences between Loupe This’ 1967 Cartier London Crash and the 1990 Cartier London Crash at Christie’s, but at the end of the day they’re both interesting for similar inherent reasons. It would have been a bit of a bummer to see the 1990 Crash, well, crash at Christie’s after there had already been so much immediate discourse on the model following the record-breaking sale at Loupe This.
These days, there are few “unexplored” territories when it comes to the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster CA. I may have remembered one, though. Back in the early 2010s, I was fortunate enough to make regular trips to Japan. Within the country’s lovely camera shops, watches are also sold. For whatever reason, these shops are the home of unloved/surplus high quality replica watches. On one such visit, no matter where I went, I ran into this odd Speedy with a brown dial. The so-called “Chocolate Dial” Omega Speedmaster replica for sale was made from 2007 to 2013 and offered on a bracelet or a strap. It was a “sandwich” model, which meant a sapphire crystal and exhibition case back with the hand-wound 1863 caliber.
For some unknown reason, these cheap replica watches CA were incredibly un-popular. They sat and sat. Sapphire-crystal Speedies are an acquired taste, but more and more people seem to be coming around to them. As such, Swiss made fake Omega reference 3126.96.36.199.13.001 and its strapped relative seem to be appreciating. For €6,013, this strapped pre-owned example on Chrono24 from seller Kinetic Miami comes with a full kit. I’m definitely not making comparisons, but the other watch that stared back at me relentlessly in Japan was the TinTin. And we all know what happened with that super clone watch…
Thanks for taking a look at some pre-owned highlights 1:1 replica Omega watches. What do you think? Too small, too gold, or just right? Let us know in the comments below!
The first thing you’ll notice about the 1:1 fake Omega Seamaster Professional is that it looks like the same iconic Bond watch we all know and love. But it doesn’t take long before you begin to take in the many significant differences between this new model and the original. The wave dial is still here, but it’s glossier, bolder, and more dramatic. The date has been moved to 6 o’clock and color-matched to the dial, adding even more symmetry to the layout. That helium escape valve remains, but it’s leaning even more into its strangeness with a conical shape. The bezel is still scalloped, but now it boasts a polished ceramic insert and more modernized and symmetrical markings. It’s clear that every detail on the upgraded AAA replica Omega CA has been carefully considered but done so in such a way that it hasn’t robbed the watch of its identity.
When examining the case of the cheap fake Omega Seamaster Professional in hand, it immediately becomes evident that this is a premium piece of engineering. Even compared to other luxury divers on the market, the build quality and robust construction of the perfect copy Omega stand out. The watch feels incredibly solid and toolish, and yet it still glistens in all the right places, with luxury replica Omega’s well-known knack for contrasting finishes on full display and even an exhibition case back showing its dressed-to-the-nines METAS-certified in-house movement. It’s pretty much like a bodybuilder in a tuxedo — or, perhaps more appropriately, a particularly rugged secret agent.
While every aspect of the top replica Omega Seamaster Professional manages to stand out in some way, none do so more than the dial. It truly is stunning in person, with the gorgeous manner in which the waves play with the light giving the actual waves of the ocean a run for their money. While the high end copy Omega Seamasters of old featured thin, guilloché waves, the modern iteration boasts thick, laser-engraved waves on a high-gloss ceramic dial. It’s an incredibly astounding effect, one that’s further amplified in its boldness by the brilliant white lume and rhodium plating on the familiar skeleton sword hands and bar and dot indices — all of which have seen an increase in size. The lume is also very impressive, with all lumed items carrying a blue glow in the dark save for the minute hand and bezel pip, both of which emit a green hue to make them easier to identify when timing a dive.
Perhaps the most frequent complaint about Swiss made replica Omega’s flagship diver from members of the watch enthusiast community is about its bracelet. While pretty much everyone agrees that it’s one of the most comfortable bracelets on the market, many dislike the styling of the “Tank Tread,” feeling it’s a dated design that should have stayed in the ‘90s. We disagree. Had Omega fake for sale gone the safe route and thrown a boring three-link Oyster-style bracelet on the Seamaster, it just wouldn’t work.
This is a watch that is made up of a sum of essential quirks, and its signature bracelet is one of those quirks. Having said that, Swiss movement fake Omega has definitely modernized the Tank Tread — it’s much flatter and more streamlined than before — but it retains the comfortability for which it is known. Finally, there’s the clasp, which is among the beefiest and most secure we’ve ever used. Like everything else about the watch, it exudes quality and craftsmanship.
The crown jewel of CA AAA replica Cartiers Métiers d’Art models is, without a doubt, this diamond-set version with multi-colored enamel. The Crash is already one of the most collectible models in the company’s history and this will be a version that, once all 50 are sold, you won’t likely see again, even on the secondary market, for quite some time. Inspired by a watch disfigured in a car crash, but also reminiscent of Salvador Dali’s famous paintings, the high quality fake Cartier was created in 1967 at the height of the swing ’60s in London and marked an innovative new design during the period that still excites both collectors and wishful novices alike.
Here the company has put a new spin on its history by exploring its design through the lens of perfect replica Cartier’s artisanal craftsmen. The turquoise, sea green, navy blue and enamel elements are the result of masterful hands. If you look closely, you will see that these aren’t straightforward hues, but some are graduated to appear as though they melt into each other like watercolors.
The stripes of the cheap fake Cartier are achieved through champlevé enameling separated by lines of diamonds, all of which are set in 18-karat yellow gold. The enameling requires a firing process in a kiln at 1,292 degrees to 1,382 degrees to achieve the various colors in multiple layers. They must be “cooked” up to 10 times to achieve the variations.
The inspiration was African wildlife—crocodiles, zebras, lions, tortoises, you name it—which is a theme that has served up some of the company’s most revered designs since the first top super clone Cartier Panthère design was created in 1914.
