Up to the minute trends in holiday gift replica watches

Jim Engelhorn, director of sales at Martin Binder Jewelers, says that the replica watch trend is on a big upswing.

Still searching for the perfect holiday gift? The hours and minutes are ticking away, but don’t be alarmed. Go for the solution with timeless appeal; a replica watch is a welcome accessory even for those who keep time with their cell phone.

Timepieces can range from sporty to dressy, or trendy to classic. Small face or large, wide band or narrow, battery operated or solar powered, wristwatches are as popular as ever.

Timely Trends

Jim Engelhorn, of Martin Binder Jewelers, says, “The value of technology as it ages goes down, while the value of a Rolex replica goes up over time.”

At Crescent Jewelers, in Lansing, Ill., store manager Barb O’Donnell says replica watches are in demand for the holidays, especially those with a lot of sparkle or other functions. “At our store and at our Frankfort, Ill., location, larger faces are favored by everyone; women like the ‘bling’ and men lean toward the replica watches with a lot of bells and whistles.” Women, in particular, O’Donnell notes, see watches as a fashion accessory and men really like the chronographs, with multiple dials, including day and date. She says that both men and women often opt for the rose gold tone variety.

The jeweler sells Citizen, Bulova and Wittenaur brand replica watches and offers battery-operated timepieces, “atomic” watches (offered only by Citizen) that automatically set via satellite and adjust to any time zone, and the automatic type—similar to a Rolex replica—which has no battery and moves because of one’s arm movement. Crescent also carries the Citizen Signature Line, only available at fine jewelry stores, as well as previously owned Rolex replica watches.

‘Not Only for Telling Time’

But what about Millennials and those who rely on portable technology? Is a watch still relevant? Just ask Josh Halpern, owner of Albert’s Diamond Jewelers in Schererville and at Southlake Mall in Hobart, and he’ll say “Absolutely.” Halpern firmly believes that replica watches are not obsolete, and he should know. His stores sell a multitude of them in various finishes and styles, with more affordable names like Fossil and Michael Kors as well as recognizable, high-quality brands like Cartier, Omega and fake Breitling watches. And of course, diamond replica watches, because, as Halpern says, “Who doesn’t love diamonds?”

“Replica Watches are not only for telling time,” Halpern notes. “Watches are a fashion statement and a status symbol. People reward themselves or others with a timepiece for reaching a milestone—a new job, a promotion, an engagement, a wedding or the holidays, for example—and it can be engraved with a special, personal message.”

Style and Flair

Brooke Dermody, store manager of Engstrom Jewelers in Valparaiso, agrees. “I think a watch is still a viable gift,” Dermody says. “A watch shows you have some style and some flair, and maybe some place important to be.” Dermody says that both the Valparaiso and LaPorte stores sell a lot of colorful, bright, fun replica watches and echoes O’Donnell that large faces and rose gold tones are a hit with both men and women.

Timepiece or Technology?

As for the comparison between a watch and a cell phone, Halpern prefers the former for keeping time. “Technology becomes obsolete very quickly, but a fine timepiece lasts forever.” Quality replica watches, he explains, become heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation.

Jim Engelhorn, director of sales at Martin Binder Jewelers in Valparaiso, agrees. “The value of technology as it ages goes down, while the value of a Rolex goes up over time.”

Engelhorn says that the watch trend is on a big upswing after losing ground between 2008 and 2011 due to the popularity of smartphones. “We worried about the introduction of the Apple iWatch,” Engelhorn notes, “but it turned out to be a good thing, because it’s generated more interest in replica watches overall. Last year was a huge year for us in watches and we expect this year will be even better.”

He makes another valid point when it comes to watches versus smart phones: Millennials are realizing that once they enter the working world, they can’t always look at their phone when in a meeting. “Keeping your head down, looking at your smartphone, creates the impression that you are disconnected,” Engelhorn says. “Wearing a smart-looking watch makes you appear connected and sharp.”

And for the ideal watch for a holiday gift, Engelhorn credits value-driven, Swiss replica watches as a mainstay. “Not necessarily more expensive; just better quality.”

Astronaut’s Omega replica watch worn on the moon expected for sale

Historical timepiece flew into space on Captain Ron Evans’ wrist – now it’s expected to command a price that’s out of this world.

A replica watch worn by a NASA astronaut on the last manned trip to the moon is expected to sell for more than £60 at auction.

Ron Evans was one of just 24 people who have flown to the moon – making his trip in December 1972.

While he didn’t moonwalk, he holds the record of more time in lunar orbit than anyone else – spending 301 hours and 51 minutes total in space.

This includes one hour and six minutes performing in extravehicular activity, and he was wearing this replica Omega Speedmaster for the trip.

At one stage he had to retrieve cameras and equipment from the exterior of the craft, allowing him to be free in space for a short period of time. This is the last ever spacewalk conducted in deep space.

Spacewalk: Ron Evans braving the void

When he returned to Earth, Evans etched ‘FLOWN IN C.S.M. TO THE MOON’, ‘APOLLO 17’ and his signature on the Omega Replica Watches.

All of the other Speedmasters worn during the Apollo missions are in the property of NASA.

Evans’ replica watches will be offered for sale by Christie’s at its ‘Omega Speedmaster 50 from a Spacewalk to Today’ sale next month.

Christie’s are describing the Omega replica as “an exceptional, highly attractive and historically important watch” with experts estimating it is worth between £32 and £65.

The Apollo 17 mission which Evans, Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt took part in was the final manned trip to the moon.

It was Evans’ first trip to the moon after being a supportive member for the Apollo 7 and Apollo 11 missions, as well as backup command module pilot for Apollo 14.

Cernan had made three trips while Schmitt was the first scientist to land on the moon.

Evans retired from the United States Navy on in 1976 after 21 years of service, but he remained active for NASAs Space Shuttle Program and as a NASA astronaut.

He was also a member of the operations and training group within the astronaut office that was responsible for launch and ascent phases.

After retiring from NASA in 1977, Evans became a coal industry executive. He passed away in 1990, aged just 56.

His old Omega will be sold on December 15 in New York.

James Bond Keeping Time With Omega Replica Watches

james-bond-replica-watchesJames Bond’s preference in timepieces is just as legendary as the way he takes his martinis — and the super- spy’s watch of choice has been Omega since 1995, when Lindy Hemming, then-costume designer for the film franchise, pitched the replica watch house about collaborating on a piece.

“She was given the job to — I wouldn’t say revamp, but the Bond image had become a bit diluted in the late Eighties. Or so she told me,” said Stephen Urquhart, president of Replica Omega. “She felt he needed a bit of a facelift, and in terms of the watch, he had a lot of replica watches, so there was not really a standard message there.”

This story first appeared in the November 4, 2015 issue of WWD. Subscribe Today.

The pair quickly settled on two criteria for the timepiece.

“Being in the Royal Navy, chances were he would have worn a Seamaster, given our very strong relationship with the British Navy and armed forces,” Urquhart said. “So she was very adamant about that. Secondly, she felt that for Bond, given that he was an educated English gentleman, the color blue was important. So that’s how we started, and we haven’t looked backed since.”

Urquhart noted that while the style of the watch remained relatively the same for the first four films Omega collaborated on, with just small, barely visible tweaks, when Daniel Craig took over the role for 2006’s “Casino Royale,” the actor wanted a hand in determining the look of the piece. “He wanted to give his own touch to the Bond image,” Urquhart said. “At that point, the Seamaster was known as the Bond replica watch — people would walk in the store and say, ‘I want the Bond watch.’ Daniel Craig chose the Planet Ocean replica watch, which is quite similar, and he wore that for three films.”

In “Spectre,” which premiered in London on Oct. 26, Craig begins the film wearing a Seamaster style previously worn in “Skyfall,” before being given a new watch by Q, played by Ben Whishaw.

The Omega Seamaster 300 “Spectre” style fea- tures a bidirectional, rotating diving bezel made from black ceramic, with a LiquidMetal 12-hour scale, so that time can be kept with any country in the world, on a five-stripe black and gray NATO strap, where the 007 gun logo has been engraved on its holder.

The timepiece is limited to just 7,007 pieces, and hit retail in September with a price point of $7,500. Each watch has its own unique serial number engraved on the back along with the “Spectre” logo.

The Bond replica watches are surely coveted by collectors, Urquhart said. “This watch will be on collectible sites, for sure. But when I think about collectors, I think of resale value, and I think this is a very emotional watch. I’m not sure many people are going to buy it just to resell it. I don’t think so. It’s more of an emotional purchase.

“Bond is a very special story,” added Urquhart. “We have nothing else like this. The only similar thing was a limited-edition watch we did for Apollo 13. But even then, we’re talking about a different category of consumers — much more limited and niche. With Bond, there are thousands of people who are waiting and ordering the fake omega watches in advance….We definitely have people who are crazy about Bond and want the Bond watch every four years, but I think we’re reaching out to a new customer, also. This film is getting such great press, that I think there will be a lot of people who come back to the world of Bond and become new customers of Omega.”

Classic Omega replica watch given to Richard Burton by Elizabeth Taylor

Classic Omega replica watches given to Richard Burton by Elizabeth Taylor is set to sell for thousands

A classic Omega replica watch given to Richard Burton by Elizabeth Taylor is set to sell for thousands later next month.

The Oscar-winning actress gave her Hollywood starring husband the gold replica Omega Constellation in 1970.

It is thought she bought it as a present after Burton, who was in Gstaad, Switzerland, at the time, had been awarded an CBE.

The replica watch remained in the Burton family’s possession until it was sold privately five years ago.

Omega confirmed the 18ct gold automatic replica watch was bought on 12th September 1970 in Zurich, but due to client confidentiality refused to say by whom.

The working timepiece measures 39.9mm by 32.9mm and has the Omega Replica Sale case numbers 166.059 168.047 with the fake watch and bracelet in 18ct gold.

A nephew of Burton’s has confirmed its provenance.

In a handwritten letter dated August, 29, 2010, it says: “I confirm that this fake watch belonged to Richard Burton. My mother remembers Richard wearing it.”

The current owner bought the watch from a gentleman who had acquired it direct from Richard Burton’s family.

He has now decided to sell the working watch it at Silverstone Auctions’ Salon Prive sale, which will be held on September 4 at Blenheim Palace, with an estimate of #7,000 to #9,000.

Any proceeds over the bottom estimate will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society, a charity close to the owner’s heart as his wife has suffered from this debilitating disease for 15 years.

Arwel Richards, from Silverstone Auctions, said: “Richard Burton had a golden timbre to his voice, and his love of buying gold and diamonds for Liz Taylor is part of twentieth century folklore.

“The vendor believes Liz Taylor bought the replica watches uk in Zurich as a gift to him to celebrate being awarded a CBE from the Queen in 1970.

“It’s a huge honour for us at Silverstone Auctions to auction a piece of twentieth century history.

“We often sell high value watches in the same auction as our high value cars and the replica watches have been hammered away at a far higher value that we are asking for Burton’s. It is a great value piece with superb history.

“According to his diaries Liz was occasionally generous, and did buy Burton a number of gold gifts, to reciprocate the yachts and private jets that he bought for her.”

Taylor and Burton stars were the world’s best-known couple in the 1960s and 1970s, with their relationship famous for tumultuous ups and downs.

They married and divorced each other twice with the Vatican once describing their relationship as “erotic vagrancy”.

Burton died in 1984 aged 58, with Taylor passing away in 2011, aged 79.

After Taylor’s death her collection of jewellery, many items of which were bought by Burton, sold for £74.9 million.
