Omega Replicaunveiled the latest updates to its ever-popular Speedmaster line, with four new references being added to the women-focused Speedmaster 38mm collection. These new include two Sedna gold models and two yellow-gold editions, both precious-metal varieties offering either a diamond-bezel or a sans-diamonds option.
For those familiar with the Replica Speedmaster 38mm design, the new watches are mostly more of the same, though now featuring the new materials and accompanying colorways. The yellow-gold options use a silver dial with green accents and are strapped on a green crocodile strap, while the Sedna gold models uses a cappuccino-colored dial with brown accents and are strapped on a taupe strap
Each of the 38-mm cases are produced in the iconic, twisted-lug Speedmaster style, alongside large pump pushers and a signed crown on their right side. The dial is surrounded by a fixed tachymeter bezel in each watch’s accent color; the diamond versions feature a two-layer look with the tachymeter on the inside and the diamonds outlining it.
Sweeping over the dial are two simple lume-filled pointers for the hours and minutes, while a familiar Speedmaster-style hand serves its traditional role as the chronograph seconds counter.
Inside the new models is the Omega Replica Watch 3330 Caliber, an automatic movement boasting a 52-hour power reserve that features, like nearly all modern Omega movements, a co-axial escapement, a free sprung-balance, and a silicon balance spring. The movement is protected via a solid caseback with an engraved seahorse design.
The new Replica Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph (ref. IW3940) and Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon (ref. IW5045).
The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon has a 45-mm Portugieser case, with curved lugs and a relatively large crown. TheAAA IWC Replica Watchdial’s outer edge features a railroad minute track recalling the marine chronometers that originally inspired the series, while applied Arabic numerals decorate most hour positions.
This array of functions is powered by the Fake IWC Caliber 51950, an automatic movement with a gold oscillating rotor, visible via a sapphire caseback. Both the blue-dial and silver-dial versions of the watch are secured to the wrist via a blue alligator leather strap by Santoni.
The IWC Replica logo occupies the 3 o’clock position, while opposite it is a very uncommon retrograde date indicator that might appear at first glance, to the uninformed eye, as a power-reserve display. At 6 o’clock is the openworked tourbillon, outlined with a precious metal ring.
Inside the new Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph is theIWC Fake Watches caliber 89900, made in-house by the brand. Like the movement powering its perpetual calendar-equipped sibling, this watch’s automatic mechanism features a gold oscillating weight, though it offers a smaller power reserve of 68 hours.
IWC Replica launched a new Spitfire squadron in its collection of pilots’ watches at that debuted in 2019. A self-winding movement from the new 32000 family of manufacture calibers debuts inside the case of the Pilot’s Watch Automatic Spitfire.
Caliber 79320 is now ticking inside Le Petit Prince. The new AAA Pilot’s Replica Watch Automatic Spitfireis equipped with new manufacture Caliber 32110. IWC presents two versions: our tested watch with stainless-steel case, black dial and green textile strap; and a version with a bronze case, green dial and dark brown calfskin strap. These are not only the base models in the Spitfire collection, but they also embody the entry-level timepieces leading into the world of the IWC manufacture.
The matte stainless-steel case with its narrow, steep bezel and massive screw-in back has a moderate diameter of 39 mm and is therefore one mm smaller than the case of the Mark XVIII. The height is 10.86 mm, which gives it a sporty look and is also an appropriate thickness for a classic pilots’ fake watch.
Manufacture Caliber 32110 contributes to the case’s height: the movement is 4.2 mm thick. Its diameter is 28.2 mm. Furthermore, Caliber 32110 is equipped with increased protection against magnetic fields thanks to a soft iron inner case and an additional inner back, a detail that was already included in the Mark 11.
The Swiss IWC Fake Watchdial is also adapted from this watch – and almost even more so from the Mark XV. It “speaks” with the design vocabulary of a classic pilots’ watch: pure instrument design, strong black-and-white contrasts, a tidy minutes scale, easy-to-read hour numerals, large lanceolate hands and a triangle instead of a numeral 12.
