German Made Nomos Replica Leather Strap Silver Dial Watches For Sale

This watch story is a little different from most because, well, I’m talking about one of my own Nomos silver dial replica watches. It’s one that, since I bought it just over 18 months ago has come to dominate my wrist (in between review watches of course) – a Nomos Club that has become quite special to me.

I’ve been a big fan of Nomos fake watches for a long time, obviously because its watches look good, but also because it has such great integrity as a company. Initially I was drawn to the dressy looks of the Orion, but once I had the opportunity to review it back when I was writing for Hodinkee, I came to realise it wasn’t the watch for me –  too small for my wrist. Which led me to this. The Club is one of their older models and, until they released the Ahoi, it was also their sportiest. I knew from my experience with the Orion that the 36mm manual version would be too petite, and I prefer the cleaner no-date look, so that left the 40mm automatic version.

Well, I picked this up from a Spanish seller, and didn’t realise until I received it that it was quite a low serial number – 84, which happily enough is also the year I was born. What makes it even better is that the day after it arrived, my son was born, so I’ve had the back engraved with his initials and date of birth, and it will be passed on to him one day.
It’s on the dressier side of casual, which suits me fine. It’s also a versatile watch when it comes to strap options. I’ve currently got it on the awesome leather strap Nomos replica watches cordovan, but it goes well with a NATO, and looks quite elegant on the saffiano leather . I also love the little pop of orange on the hands.

Replica Tissot T-Classic Gold Case Leather Strap Watches For Sale

The Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph watch collection is a decent “classic” daily wear from Tissot that also benefits from reasonable pricing. As one of the Swatch Group’s more volume-focused watch brands, Tissot enjoys a few benefits including having a range of products that varies from modern (such as the electronic T-Touch family) to more traditional watches in the “Tissot T-Classic replica watches” series. Another benefit is well-priced access to “in-house” movements from ETA which is also part of the Swatch Group.

The Tissot T-Classic collection now includes these Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph Tissot fake watches which debuted last year in 2015. Tissot currently offers four different version of the Tissot Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph, which combine the looks of old-world timepieces with modern sizes and materials. I’ve often referred to watches such as this as “baby Breguet,” as they attempt to emulate some of the looks more commonly associated with the high-end luxury watch maker (which also happens to be owned by the Swatch Group). What I am talking about are elements such as a machine guilloche engraved-style dial (likely produced via stamping in this instance), coined-edging on the bezel and crown, as well as the design of the hands and hour markers.
It isn’t that the Tissot Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph is a retro-timepiece – because in size and specifications, it is quite modern – but it is for people who want a “traditional look” to go with contemporary times. There is certainly a market for that, and if you wear a watch such as this it is hard not to find it appealing in many ways even if it isn’t perfect for jeans and sneakers.

Along that line of thinking, Tissot cheap replica watches own website actually sums up the reason for wearing one of these watches quite well in saying “elegant choices which will never date.” That’s true – these are for more formal attire, and they’ll never be any more or less in fashion. Call that “timeless,” if you will. Moreover, the various versions of the Tissot Bridgeport Automatic Chronograph combine a few sensible style choices including silver or black dials, as well as bracelet or leather strap options.

Replica Mido Commander II Series Stainless Steel Case Luxury Watches

Mido is one of Swatch Group’s smaller brands that you rarely hear about. If you do, you know that like Tissot or (not available in the US) Certina, Mido luxury replica watches offers some decent looking pieces at pretty reasonable prices (for a Swiss mechanical watch). As one of the underdog brands, sources say that the Swatch Group just isn’t quite sure what to do with them. Sounds like Mido just needs the right type of person in charge. If you look at the pieces they’ve offered over the last few years, there are some real keepers. One of the most iconic collections from Mido has always been the dressy Commander. It sort of fits in the same vein as a Rolex – not in price necessarily, but more what it was trying to be for a man.

For 2013 Mido returns the Mido Commander series fake watches with the “Commander II,” as well as the similar sibling watch the “Great Wall.” Now, according to Mido, the Commander’s design – that is the new Commander for 2013 – was  influenced by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Something about how the sunray finished anthracite dial and hour indicators are reminiscent of lattice work on the Eiffel Tower. Yea, I know… a ‘big’ stretch of the imagination – even for Swiss marketers. Oh and the Commander II’s case is meant to remind you of the “curves and iron of the Eiffel Tower.” Major eye roll going on right now.

For comparison’s sake I included some images of older Commander watches in addition to the Commander II models. They have been offered in a range of styles with different bracelets and even some with diamond hour markers. Though, the rank and file stainless steel case fake Mido Commander watch has squared hour marker and easy-to-read hands. Many came on “Milanese” mesh metal bracelets. They are sort of a hip find today for vintage watch lovers. I would probably even wear one once in a while myself. How much does the most modern incarnation of the Commander resemble the original? Thematically some of the same stuff is there. You have the thin bezel and hands that look much like those on the originals. There is also a diminutive lug structure which sort of makes the bracelet look as though it is sticking out of the case. Of course there is the day/date complication. Otherwise Mido’s interpretation of the Commander is rather new.
