A Commemorative Speedmaster, A Ceramic IWC Fliegerchronograph, And A Replica Rolex Precision ADVERTISEMENT

Since we last checked in, it's been an interesting week in the vintage fake watch world to say the least. Auction season in Geneva was a mixed bag of results if there ever was one, befuddling many attentive collectors who put in the time to go over the numbers. Despite this, the wheels of progress keep turning, and exciting replica watches continue to surface, including pieces like a Replica Rolex Precision Dustproof with a rare tuxedo dial, along with the elusive Jaeger-LeCoultre Futurematic Porthole, and a Zenith Pilot with petrol provenance. At the extra special end of the spectrum, there's the highly desirable Ref. 3705 in ceramic from IWC, and an important Speedmaster with a mysterious original owner.

1958 Replica Rolex Precision Dustproof Ref. 4499

The nicknames appointed to vintage fake watch variants never fail to amaze. While some newer attempts at breaking into the lexicon might be a bit of a stretch, replica watches like the one we're about to get into correspond with monikers as established as the day is long. Collectors refer to timepieces configured like this next piece as having two-tone "tuxedo" dials, as a result of either a central or surrounding portion that's finished in black. Unsurprisingly, Replica Rolex replica watches fitted with such dials are among the most desirable tuxedo watches, as a result of both their beauty and rarity. If those two qualities are non-negotiable in your horological pursuits, you're bound to like what's in store.

Just over six decades ago, this fake watch exited the factory doors at Replica Rolex boasting one of the brand's earliest innovations. Thanks to the use of a movement cover, much like the later antimagnetic soft iron shields, dust was blocked from entering the delicate inner workings. Along with waterproofness, this was one of the many developments that put Replica Rolex on the map, resulting in the unparalleled reverence enjoyed by the watchmaker today. This feature is proudly stated on the tuxedo dial, which is also finished with crosshair detailing.

Condition wise, this piece has a lot going for it. The main event ?its tuxedo dial ?has been preserved outstandingly over the years, with not a spot or flaw of note. It's also somewhat of an unconventional tuxedo dial, seeing as it has gilt text, and the accenting portion has a textured, gold surface. Though this piece might only measure 34 mm across, its smaller footprint is made up for, and then some, by its rarity and present state. The correct riveted bracelet is a nice touch, too.

Harbor replica watches of Paris has this piece listed on their site, with an asking price of ?2,900. The full listing can be found here.

IWC Fliegerchronograph Keramik Ref. 3705

Since many seemed to enjoy the inclusion of a more modern piece in last week's installment of the column, I thought we'd give it another go with a radically different fake watch that enjoys a similarly cult-like following. Despite enjoying IWC's recent offerings, and always being excited to see what they've got in the works, the brand's not so distant back catalogues will always have my heart. I don't know what was in the waters of Schaffhausen back in the '90s, but IWC realized some genuinely epic references. No frills, no nonsense ?just badass tool replica watches that get the job done reliably, accurately, and highly legibly.

IWC's Fliegerchronograph is surely one of those watches, with a workhorse movement, luminous applications a-plenty, and perfect dimensions at under 40 mm across. In today's market, examples of the stainless steel Ref. 3706 are readily available, in stark contrast to the scarcity of its ceramic cased cousin, the Ref. 3705. This reference demonstrated the brand's continual dedication to pushing the envelope in the name of technical excellence, as ceramic is not only extremely lightweight, but scratch resistant as well. As one of the very first full ceramic cases to hit the market, it can now be seen as a pioneering piece in the world of modern horology.

Last year in Phillips' New York sale, an example breached the stratosphere after selling for just north of the $50,000 mark, though since then, excitement has noticeably cooled off. The fake watch still commands a serious premium in comparison to the Ref. 3706, but the at times outrageous numbers of 2018 are no longer being reached ?a trend which can be seen across the entire market as a whole. With all this in mind, it'll be interesting to see what this example achieves.

Koller Auktionen of Zurich will be offering this example of the rare IWC in their sale taking place on the 4th of December. More details, along with the rest of the catalogue, can be accessed right here.

ADVERTISEMENT Jaeger-LeCoultre Futurematic 'Porthole' Ref. E502

As I'm sure we've discussed before, the term rare gets thrown around all too often in the vintage fake watch sales scene. On one hand I get it, people have metal to move, and a flowery adjective here and there can get the job done. On the other hand, you can only unveil so many matte 5513s while still purporting them to be scarce gems. That's why I thought we'd keep things moving with a legitimately rare watch, from none other than Jaeger-LeCoultre. How rare you ask? Let's put it this way ?I can count the number of stainless steel examples I've encountered over the last couple years on the fingers of one hand.

Back in the summer, we featured a Futurematic in all its symmetrical glory, but unlike today's contender, that was a Ref. E501. While that reference is certainly attractive, it's got nothing on the Ref. E502, if you ask me. That's because the latter is objectively more, well, futuristic, with its unconventional, porthole-style registers at three and nine o'clock. These registers function rather uniquely for a 1950s timepiece, with a power reserve dot that changes from red to blue, along with a spinning wheel seconds indicator.

However, what really set the Futurematic apart from its contemporaries was its seemingly crownless construction, which hides a time-setting crown on the caseback. Not that this is crown is only for setting the time, and not for winding, as the supremely futuristic feature of this fake watch was its "100% automatic" movement. My only gripe with this particular example is just how polished its case is, but seeing that it's the first one in stainless steel that I've seen in a good long while, I guess beggars can't be choosers.

You'll find this piece listed on eBay, where a seller based out of East Sussex has it up for grabs in an auction that'll end on Tuesday afternoon. At the time of publishing, the high bid stands at GBP 1,360. Check it out here.

Omega Speedmaster Professional Ref. BA 145.022

Usually, the writing up of a fake watch is warranted by recognizing it as something noteworthy, and understanding the piece in its entirety. The inclusion of the next pick of the week slightly deviates from this rule, in that a possibly important detail of its provenance remains a mystery. After scouring forums and searching through publicly available NASA records, my efforts have unfortunately yielded no substantial results. Because of this, I thought I'd put it on the main stage, and see if the research savvy masses can do their thing.

The fake watch in question is a Ref. BA 145.022 Speedmaster Professional, which, as some will know, was effectively the first limited edition of the Speedmaster collection. Just 1014 examples were produced, of which the first 28 examples were awarded to involved astronauts and NASA officials, with the first two ending up on the wrists of President Richard Nixon and Vice President Spiro Agnew. Unlike those offered to the general pubic, these first 28 examples have an engraved caseback which has the name of the individual it was awarded to, along with the saying "to mark man's conquest of space with time, through time, on time." This example has both a name engraved up top, and this quote, which naturally raises a lot of questions.

Here's the rub, I can't for the life of me figure out who this Adolf Brandle character is. I've considered the possibility that a caseback of this sort could be faked, but then again, it seems like a lot of work to go to if the engraved owner's name isn't known to many. Furthermore, the depth and typeface of the engraved quote is identical to others I've seen. The only potentially promising lead is the fact that someone by this name worked at UBS way back when, though I haven't been able to find a direct link from the bank or Brandle to Omega. All of this begs the question, who is Adolf Brandle, and what was his role in colossally important moon mission? If anyone has any information, please do enlighten me down in the comments below.

This mysterious Speedmaster will go up for sale at Ineichen Z├╝rich tomorrow afternoon. Its estimate has been set at CHF 20,000-25,000. See it here.

1959 Zenith Pilot

While the bulk of time-only Zeniths never been ultra-desirable, or tremendously exciting in any notable sense, I've always been a fan. This admiration can be attributed to the movements found beneath their casebacks, the architecture of which I've always appreciated. I'm no expert in the field of micro mechanics, but I know a good looking movement when I see one, and if you'd like to as well, do yourself a favor and focus in on this one.

This is a pilot's fake watch from Zenith cased in 14k yellow gold, which was likely manufactured towards the end of the 1950s. This inference can be made thanks to the indication that its original owner received the fake watch in 1959, which we'll touch upon further in just a moment. While it might not look like a conventional pilot's watch, it's in fact a highly functional one as a result of the Cal. 120 movement's hacking capabilities. This allowed pilots to precisely set the time down to the second before taking off, ensuring optimal accuracy over the course of a flight.

Like the aforementioned Omega, this piece has a provenance suggesting detail which can be found upon flipping over the watch, and inspecting its caseback. Presumably, this Zenith would've been awarded to someone working at Esso, though I'd be willing to wager they were higher up in the company, as I haven't heard too many stories of gas pumping equating to the gifting of a Swiss fake watch in solid gold. Additionally, there's a beautifully engraved monogram, which is a detail I'm always delighted to see on replica watches both new and old. There's something special about truly making a fake watch your own, and there are few better ways to do it than a borderline regal monogram.

An eBay seller based out of Japan has this piece listed for sale with an asking price of $2,850. You also have the option to make an offer, which is where I'd recommend starting off if interested.
