As we all know that the watch industry is moving in the direction of a greatly expanded Internet presence, with many perfect brands building out e-commerce platforms on their company websites. You may have noticed that Net-a-Porter as well and Mr. Porter have both been retailing luxury timepieces from the likes of Cartier, IWC, and Ressence since late last year, which is no coincidence. As you may recall, Richemont has been some form of shareholder (it has fluctuated over the years) in Net-a-Porter since 2010. Therefore, there should have been a sign of things to come, which bring me to today’s announcement: IWC has launched their website again, and it includes an e-commerce platform.
This should come as no surprise for many reasons as I mentioned before. On one hand, it is the most popular and fashion method for all the young people to purchase and it was only just in need of some time before larger watch brands began to get on board. Secondly, in the watch world IWC has always been at the forefront of digital media and engagement. They have concentrated a lot on building their brand using celebrity ambassadors and lifestyle bloggers, which has gotten them far in their engagement with a younger demographic in the stuffy world of replica watches.
“We felt that this was the right time to launch e-commerce in the US. Especially in strong digital markets like the US, introducing brand e-commerce to complete the omni-channel experience is a necessary part of our service to our clients. We already saw great success with our partnerships with Mr. Porter and Net-a-Porter and we could see the demand for access to purchasing IWC online, especially in those areas where there might not be a retail location.”
In the end, the fake IWC is one of the commercially strongest and most approachable replica watch brands owned by Richemont, mostly due to former CEO Georges Kern, and that torch continues to be carried by current CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr (you can catch an interview we did with him here). That, paired with Kern’s new role as the Richemont Head of Watchmaking, Marketing, and Digital, makes this website/e-commerce redesign a natural and inevitable next step.
So what is new about the IWC website? Well, it has a fresh look, and features many video content to accompany the products (the Pilot’s video is quite enjoyable). The e-commerce platform is divided up by watch collection. Initially the e-commerce platform will only be available in the United States, with an international roll-out to come in the near future. Apart from the new website, IWC replica is re-launching their print magazine, Watch International, in digital form as the IWC Journal. This online magazine will feature both native and external content.
With a lower price, there was something very unusual and if you are attracted by the really unique, very beautiful stuffs. According to the catalogue, we would think about smothering here. It is a so-called “form” watch – this is a term given to cheap replica watches that are in the shape of some other object, and throughout watchmaking history there have been many examples in shapes as diverse as those of insects, flowers, and even skulls. It’s meant to be used as the head of a cane, but it is also a form watch in that it is shaped like a parrot’s head. In this case, the watch is a sort of double-form watch that it is both a utilitarian object and a decorative one.
The parrot’s head is elaborately carved and decorated, with the individual barbs of each feather carefully delineated, and decorated with contrasting champleve enamel (enameling in which a metal surface has hollows carved in it which are then filled with enamel, and fired). The cover over the watch is launched by a catch in the handle and is spring loaded so that when it pops open it looks like the parrot has raised its crest. Inside is a wonderful watch movement in an octagonal case, with a miniature music box hidden below it that plays when you open the case.
This is not a precision timekeeper per se, but on the contrary, it was intended to be a mechanical distraction and diversion, as well as a conversation piece and would have been a real show-stopper for whoever owned it. The mainspring has the year 1807 scratched on it, and the catalogue notes speculate that a likely date of completion is 1810. The notes also observe: “Almost surely made in Geneva, it is a testament to the quality of the work of the goldsmith and watchmaker in Switzerland at the beginning of the 19th century. Although the signature on the mainspring of the musical movement cannot be deciphered it must have been made by one of the best workshops in Geneva such as Piguet & Capt or Moulinie, Bautte & Cie.”
Apart from telling the time and playing a tune, the movement incorporates two animations forming the sort of rustic scene often shown in Rococo period art. The Rococo era only flourished through the mid-18th century and by 1810 its last vestiges would have been wiped out by the French Revolution, but you can still see characteristics of its lightheartedness in some Swiss watchmaking of this period, especially replica watches incorporated in decorative or useful objects, and those which had animations. Here a blacksmith hammers on his anvil against a backdrop of a fountain; the illusion of flowing water is created by a rotating glass rod. Even the balance wheel has been decorated; its rim glitters with rose cut diamonds.
The day on Sunday, June 18 is Father’s Day. It’s time to get serious about that present. We’re pretty sure they’d be blown away by a Rolex whether it’s for dad, granddad, dad to your kids, son who is a dad, or any other special dad in your life. Because, let’s face it, who wouldn’t be? Gifting someone the world’s leading perfect watch brand says a whole lot about how special they are. So this year, celebrate dad with the ultimate gift—an amazing replica Rolex watch.
A great Father’s Day gift would be a fake Rolex watch that he could be comfortable enough to wear every day. In that category, we recommend the Oyster Perpetual 39 or the Datejust II model. Both of these Rolex replica watches are casual enough for daily wear yet prestigious enough to carry the Rolex name.
As its name suggests the Oyster Perpetual 39 sports a 39mm case, which is very wearable on almost any wrist size. The case houses a wonderfully symmetrical dial thanks to the lack of date window. Dial colors are varied including this super sleek slate gray shade.
If you’d rather get a replica Rolex that includes a date window, then choose a white Datejust II. Not only does it have its feature date window with magnifying Cyclops lens, but it’s also a larger size at 41mm. While there are plenty of dial options, we like the straightforward white dial with baton indexes.
On the other hand, if you think dad would rather have a sporty replica Rolex instead, then the Swiss watchmaker has plenty to choose from! Some of our favorite Rolex sports replica watches right now are the Explorer II Polar, the ceramic GMT-Master II, and the James Cameron Deepsea.
With its 42mm stainless steel case, ice-white dial, oversized numerals on the bezel, and orange GMT-hand, the Explorer II fake watch carries on the legacy of adventure from the inaugural 1953 Explorer. Rugged enough to climb mountains yet polished enough to wear to the office, and the Explorer II looks and performs spectacularly.
From adventuring to flying, the GMT-Master II is Rolex’s iconic pilot’s watch collection that offers a GMT function to keep track of two time zones simultaneously. And the green 24-hand and text on the GMT-Master II looks particularly attractive—as does the watch’s Cerachrom ceramic bezel.
If you really want an impressive gift this Father’s Day, then it doesn’t get much better than a Rolex Daytona. Inspired by the adrenaline of motorsports and enjoyed by fans all over the world, the Daytona is Rolex’s flagship chronograph watch. And when crafted in gold, many agree it’s the ultimate luxury chronograph.
Yet another tool watch from Rolex, this time may we suggest the mega diving watch, a Deepsea replica. This 44mm beast can plunge down to 12,800 feet thanks in part to the helium escape valve. And this isn’t just any Deepsea model either, but the special “James Cameron” edition that was launched after the filmmaker made history by taking his submersible to Mariana Trench’s lowest point, the Challenger Deep.
There you have it, our suggestions for some top Father’s Day gifts that will truly bring dad some joy this year. Forget everything else and get him what he really wants—a Rolex watch from you that he’ll cherish forever.
The Rolex Day-Date, which is well-known as the President as well, is one of the brand’s signature timepieces. The typical Day-Date measures 36mm while the replica Rolex has launched larger versions in 40mm and 41mm as well. The Day-Date 40 is the newest iteration of the Rolex President having made its debut at Baselworld 2015 as well. It is actually the replacement of the 41mm Day-Date II. Therefore, we pulled the Day-Date model from our inventory for a closer look this week. You don’t want to miss this beauty, please trust us.
As usual, this replica Rolex President is always approachable in precious materials including three shades of gold and platinum. From its 40mm Oyster case to its President bracelet to its fluted bezel, this particular Day-Date 40 is made almost totally in 18k yellow gold. It’s worth noting for those who don’t already know, that Rolex produces their own gold at their in-house foundry. Let’s see the quality control!
The Oyster case is also equipped with a Twinlock winding crown and fluted caseback to achieve its water resistance of 330 feet (100 meters). Furthermore, also keeping the water out and protecting the face of the watch is scratch resistant sapphire crystal.
One of the progresses the Day-Date 40 collection brought about was the content of ceramic inserts in the bracelet links to avoid the “stretching” of the bracelet over time. Furthermore, the fake Rolex redesigned the President bracelet to be more integrated into the case—a deep look indeed.
To enhance the lavishness of the Rolex President watch, this special model sports a diamond dial. Ten baguette-cut diamonds serve as hour’s markers on the black dial while the remaining space is left for the iconic pair of day and date window. The date aperture sits under the Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock and the day window is at 12 o’clock, framed by two diamonds.
Although the President model we have here has a black dial with diamonds, there are a large number of dial options on the yellow gold Day-Date 40. This consists of the new laser‑etched motifs available exclusively to the Day-Date 40 as well.
When it comes to any replica watches geek and they’ll tell you the greatest appeal of the new Day-Date 40 is not the elegant new appearance, on the contrary, the new fake Rolex Caliber 3255 within. Like all modern Rolex calibers, the new automatic movement is built completely in-house. Labeled as a new-generation movement by Rolex, this model not only boasts a rehauling of almost 90% of its parts but also 14 patents. As a result, the latest version of the President is more accurate and more dependable. Besides, the movement is also more resistant to shocks and magnetism.
The Day-Date 40 is a modern approach to the fake Rolex’s quintessential luxury watch. It is the President for the modern man. And the combination of the 18k yellow gold, the black dial, and the precious diamonds on the Day-Date watch is a striking one. Although it’s currently in our hands, we know it won’t be long until this Rolex President finds a new residence.
