2022 has been a year dominated by color in watchmaking. Today we will appreciate some best 1:1 fake watches released this year. The days of easy dial changes in shades of blue or green are over, with every color of the spectrum now fair game. Materials such as ceramic, quartz TPT and Swatch’s bioceramic allowing brands to bring color to cases, crowns and bezels too.
But it’s not just aesthetic driving the industry, even though the craft is hundreds of years old there is still room for technical development as illustrated by a number of complicated new chronographs from the likes of MB&F and Jacob & Co.
The record for world’s thinnest replica watch has also been broken twice in the first six months of the year with Bulgari usurping the title from Piaget only to be surpassed by a $1.9M USD Richard Mille just 1.75mm thick. And, if that were not enough, Cartier realised its eight-year-long project of building the Swiss made fake watches movement inside its own winding rotor.
Here is a look at some of the most important high quality replica watches of the year so far.
Best Use of Color: Fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Carolina Bucci
Italian jewelry designer Carolina Bucci’s collaborations with AAA replica Audemars Piguet have represented some of the Swiss watchmaker’s most exciting developments in recent years. Bucci was first responsible for the manually chiseled Frosted Gold finish at AP before designing this 34mm black ceramic self-winding Audemars Piguet Royal Oak replica for sale with an iridescent sapphire crystal Tapisserie dial. While color is everywhere in watchmaking at the moment, rarely is it used this effectively.
Most Original Design: Replica Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon 44mm Samuel Ross
The perfect fake watches tend to be designed by watch designers, who often bring with them all of the historical baggage they’ve picked up along the way. While that’s not always a bad thing, after all experience brings its own rewards, it is refreshing to see a super clone watch designed by someone from outside of the industry. Samuel Ross, founder of A-COLD-WALL*, deconstructed cheap replica Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon, creating a rubber and titanium mesh bund strap with an eye on breathability and the requirements of a modern day sports watch.
