HANDS-ON: The Breguet Classique 7147 gets an enamel update

Last year’s slim Breguet Classique 7147 had a spectacular dial, with a central section in detailed engine-turned guilloche and a subdial in a delicate crosshatch pattern. It was, not to overstate things, the star of the show. It’s a very difficult art to master, but there’s no doubt that Breguet has the technique down pat. So, imagine our surprise when we were presented this year’s update of the 7147 and there was not a hobnail or brushed finish to be seen. read more

VIDEO: Australian entrepreneur Mark Bouris tells us why he loves his replica watch. But really, what is there not to love?

Some people’s love of their timepiece is intensely personal, to a point where it’s hard to fathom for an outsider. Others are entirely easy to understand. Aussie entrepreneur Mark Bouris, who you might know from as the TV face of the local version of The Apprentice and its celebrity offshoot. When he’s not busy being a financial guru he has a lot of love for his IWC Perpetual Calendar, that he refers to – with sweet emotion – as his ‘Double Moon’. It’s a love that knows itself. Here, he lists just how accurate the moon phase is, in detail. It’s also an exclusive love, with Mark listing its rarity – the only blue dial version in Australia to his knowledge – as a key charm. We won’t spoil the surprise any further. But needless to say, his affection for the replica watch is easy to share in. Let the #grail talk begin. Who’s in? read more

EDITOR’S PICK: Our video review of the Montblanc 1858 Small Second with blue dial

Editor’s Note: The 1858 collection has quickly become a mainstay of Montblanc’s replica watch landscape, with new versions offered in 2017 in bi-material bronze and steel and also with a Dual-Time complication that you can get a glimpse of in this video. Before these welcome developments came a dressy blue dial variant offered in 2016, on an excellent blue strap. read more

EDITOR’S PICK: What happens in a Rolex Service Centre? We visited one to find out…

Editor’s Note: Working in replica watches, one of the most common complaints is poor aftersales support. If you believe every horror story you hear, servicing or returning a replica watch for any reason can be outrageously expensive, horrendously slow and the result can be of questionable quality. And while it’s best to take these tales with a grain of salt (did you really expect your high end chrono to be as simple and cheap to service as an old Toyota?), the reality is that too many brands overlook the unglamorous service centre in favour of the shiny new boutique. There’s one exception – Rolex. Here’s what I found when I visited their (then new) Melbourne Service Centre early last year.  read more

EDITOR’S PICK: Our A. Lange Söhne Richard Lange Jumping Seconds video review

A. Lange & Söhne’s Richard Lange Jumping Seconds is an unusual and very serious replica watch. The jumping seconds, or deadbeat seconds, is perhaps the most stealth complication out there – most people would assume the ticking seconds hand is powered by a battery rather than intricate gearing. It’s also a complication that’s finally enjoying its day in the sun, with brands like Jaeger-LeCoultre, Jaquet Droz and Grönefeld all releasing their take on this once-obscure complication. Lange’s version adds a regulator-style dial and some classical German good looks. read more

VIDEO: Have you noticed this guy on Australian TV (or Netflix) wearing Tudor replica watches?

Editor’s Pick: Last year we received a tip-off that popular Australian actor Rodger Corser has a Tudor story to tell. Not only does he wear a Black Bay on his latest show, Doctor Doctor (he’s also in zombie series Glitch if you’re OS and also thinking he looks familiar), it turns out the vintage model he sported in ‘Doctor Blake’ was also a Tudor. And not just any Tudor… read more

EDITOR’S PICK: Going back to Cali with the Panerai PAM 629 video review

Much like the state they’re named for, California (or Cali) dials have something inherently cool and playful about them. With their nonchalant mixing of formal Roman and casual Arabic numerals, you just know these replica watches don’t play by the rules. Which brings us to the Panerai PAM 629, first seen at Replica Watches & Wonders in 2015. This stealthy/sexy replica watch raised a few eyebrows when it was released, as it was the first time the brand had paired a Cali dial with the sportier Luminor case shape. read more

EXCLUSIVE: “We stretched into fields where we are not necessarily legitimate.” 5 brutally honest quotes about Cartier’s recent releases

The Cartier ‘Drive de Cartier’ was about as close to a number one hit as you can get in the replica watch industry. From the minute it was released, it was popular with journalists the world over – us wholeheartedly included. It appealed to round and small replica watch markets like Asia as well as tastemakers in other markets, and it was smartly priced. In a refreshingly frank interview, Cartier’s International Marketing and Communication Director, Arnaud Carrez, details how, after a wayward period where brands “tried to be everything and everywhere”, the Drive is powering Cartier to new heights. read more

LIST: 10 replica watches I’ll never forget from my first Baselworld

Editor’s Note: Andy Green has pretty much been part of the Time+Tide team since day one. But it wasn’t until 2017 that the stars aligned and he was able to attend Baselworld. And I think it’s fair to say that Andy had a quintessential first Basel. He was blown away, occasionally overwhelmed, but most of all I think he loved discovering new things and meeting the replica watchmakers he’s admired and the people he’s DM’d from afar IRL. Andy’s personal Top 10 list really reflects this. Sure, it’s about the replica watches, but the people behind the scenes are just as important. Hope to see you at Basel 2018 Andy.  read more

HANDS-ON: The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “Big Blue” lives up to its name

While one of the key trends of Basel 2017 is a move towards more wrist-friendly dive replica watches (see exhibits A and B), there’s no doubt that big and bold is still the name of the game. Omega’s latest PO, the “Big Blue”, delivers on both fronts, thanks to its whopping 45.5mm wide by 17.8mm high case made from bright blue ceramic. Why Big Blue? Well, asides from the obvious, it’s an homage to a super funky (and super collectable) Omega diver’s chronograph from the ’70s. read more
