Vintage Omega Seamaster 120 replica watch

When talking about rarity in Omegas, everything is relative. A rare Patek will be one of perhaps 5 or 10 examples, a rare Rolex one of a few hundred. A rare Omega is in the thousands – with millions of watches produced over the decades, something that was made in a run of 20 or 30 thousand pieces is relatively uncommon compared to a series of several hundred thousand. So when someone touts his or her particular watch as “rare” don’t expect it to be one of a handful that will never come up again. It’s more likely just an uncommon model that the seller didn’t happen to see on eBay at the time he put up his listing.

I know I have done a lot of reviews on vintage watches here, but you know, these vintage watches are my favorites, many blog readers also asked me a lot of other vintage brand watches that were not reviewed here, but not all of them are produced by the factory, here I recommend you two top quality ones, Daytona Paul Newman and Sea-Dweller Double Red. This one I am going to give a review is a vintage Omega Seamaster, on its dial, there are printings of “Seamaster 120”, actually I do not know the meaning of digit “120”, does it mean that the watch is water resistant to 120 metres? And I have another question, was it produced in 1968?

Whatever, it is a great replica with every detail closely replicated to genuine. The movement is the best, because it adopted a genuine Japanese automatic, which is Miyota 8215. This imported movement has a better accuracy and reliability than other clone automatic movements. This is not a large watch, which only features a 38.5mm case diameter. Black bezel is diver’s style and has white markings. Black dial is protected by plexi crystal face like genuine. The hour markers and hands are all applied with good quality luminescence that could give a long durable lume light at night.

To meet the whole vintage style, the factory uses a suede grey leahter strap for this replica, the outside face of the band gives a hairy feeling, while the inside is smooth leather. Solid case back has an unqie Seamaster logo that is different from modern logo’s appearance. These engravings on back are also very clear and neat. Because of not that large case diameter, this watch could fulfill the wrist size of most men, plus its movement with low repairing rate, the replica watch will be a good choice for every man who wants to find the vintage feel.

How did mechanical-watch king Rolex deal with the arrival of quartz in the 1970s?

Rolex made just 4,000 Oysterquartz watches per year.

How did mechanical-watch king Rolex deal with the arrival of quartz in the 1970s? What follows is an excerpt from the book “Electrifying the Wristwatch,” by WatchTime contributor Lucien Trueb. The book, illustrated with photos of pieces from watch collectors Günther Ramm and Peter Wenzig, tells how quartz-watch technology evolved.André Heiniger, second Rolex president and successor of the founder Hans Wilsdorf, was a true visionary. His opinion was that the originally very costly quartz watch would soon be totally banal. This already had happened with transistor radios, TV sets, and pocket calculators.

Top-quality mechanical movements would always remain expensive and exclusive due to the large amount of highly qualified labor that is required for manufacturing the parts and assembling them. The inescapable fact that a mechanical device can only tell time approximately could be easily hidden by writing “Superlative Chronometer, Officially Certified” on the dial. This means a daily rate of plus-six/minus-four seconds per day. In due time, every watch brand in the “upscale” sector copied Heiniger’s concept. Wealthy people don’t need an instrument that tells time: they want a beautiful and exclusive object on their wrist.

Rolex developed several technically advanced quartz movements that never got beyond the prototype stage. The most interesting of them certainly was a thermo-compensated quartz caliber that was developed in 1985. Design studies were made with extremely stable high frequency (1.2 MHz and 2.4 MHz) quartz resonators with the ZT cut. The CEH produced those resonators and delivered 1,000 pieces in 1984. In 1986, Rolex built 50 prototypes but there was no production, even though the yearly rate was just a few seconds. Another very ingenious quartz caliber with a perpetual calendar had the same fate. It was set in a particularly easy way; it also featured a 2.4 MHz quartz resonator with ZT cut as well as a standard 32 kHz resonator. As the ZT quartz and its divider circuit needed a lot of power, it was only switched on every 10 minutes for 10 seconds in order to set the 32 kHz frequency. An extraordinary rate and a battery life of 10 years were achieved with a three-volt lithium battery that measured 22.0 mm by 2.5 mm. The 30-mm caliber featured three motors for the seconds, the minutes and hour, and the day/date function, respectively. This design was patented; the patent became public domain in 2011. A test series of 400 pieces was assembled, but there was no production; none of those prototypes ever left the Rolex premises.

Rolex GMT Master II

The Rolex GMT timepieces are definitely the professional group of wrist watches. It was built in the year of The late 90s towards the Basel Fair. Rolex is usually a name which is pertaining to setting masculine fashion models. Rolex GMT Master II is among the most most deluxe watches in the earth. Unique features of GMT comprises as follows :- Standard case magnitude of 40mm- Self-winding machine- Turning bezel- Ceramic Bezels- An anti-scratch synthetic sapphire gem that has a slim appearance.- Triple lock system presenting another coating of shield to the Oyster case.

Apart from above capabilities, the choice of black bezel together with black dial is also most stylish in such model. The aesthetic developments which Rolex has brought in the wrist watches with the well stylish machinery have saved the business from the idea of fake replica swiss wrist watches. This business has got security measures engraved included in the watches which include SKU numbers. The bi-directional rotating bezel in the Rolex GMT designer watches allows the individual to observe the time into 2 special timezones concurrently.

The Rolex GMT was designed as an aviator watch: The newly introduced fourth hand allowed the display of an additional time, with the corresponding numbermarkings on the outer bezel. Pilots used the second time to display the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which led to the name Rolex GMT Master. Altough Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) got replaced 1972 in the Aviation Industry by Coordinated Universal Time , the term GMT is still known and kept as part of the name of the GMT Master, altough Pilots nowadays use it to set UTC.


The Rolex Air-King, for most of its very long history, was the simplest, least expensive Rolex, but also in some ways the purist’s Rolex. With no date, a 100 m water resistant case, screw-down crown, and chronometer certification, it had every essential attribute that makes a Rolex , with no distractions. In 2014, however, it was discontinued, and its status as the entry level Rolex as well as the purist’s Rolex was taken in 2015 by a new version of the Oyster Perpetual. In 2016, however, the Air-King returned and it is emphatically not your father’s Air-King. With a 40 mm case, new “Superlative Chronometer” certification, complete overhaul to the dial, and the same arrangements for resistance to magnetism as the Milgauss, it may be an Air-King in name, but in the hand and on the wrist, it’s an almost entirely new watch.

The Black dial rolex oyster perpetual air king replica watch ref. 116900 features a dial very similar to that on the Rolex Explorer I ref. 214270 we reviewed here; but this time, including a white minute scale with white numerals. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 features a black glossy dial with applied hour numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 is fitted with the legendary Oyster bracelet with satin-brushed finish. The bracelet features solid links throughout and is fitted with a folding Oysterclasp equipped with the Easylink system that allows the wearer to extend the last link on the bracelet by 5 mm.

The watch is waterproof to 100 meters and its movement is properly protected by its Twinlock screw-down crown and its screwed-in solid case back. The watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal with Rolex’s etched coronet at 6 o’clock. Perhaps the biggest difference of this clasp versus all other modern clasps on Rolex Sports models, is that the Rolex coronet —crown— is this time embossed on bas-relief —low-relief— opposed to being applied and soldered to the clasp.

In fact, it’s such a departure from what we’ve all gotten used to thinking of as an Air-King that I almost wish Rolex had named it something else. The retention of the Air-King name means that you have to struggle a little when you first see pictures of the watch – or when you start wearing it – to see it as its own thing, instead of through the veil of years of exposure to something else that had the same name. What is the same, however – Rolex being pretty good at not totally disrupting the connection of any of its watches to earlier models in particular, and to the basic design codes of the company in particular – is the Air-King logo, as if to reassure the skittish that underneath it all, the Air-King is the same purist’s watch you knew and loved once upon a time.

Breitling Chronomat 808

The Breitling Chronomat 808 introduced a major change versus its 769 predecessor along with more subtle updates. Gone were the rectangular pushers in favor of round pump pushers. Big dagger hands replaced earlier needles. Additonally, a larger signed crown joined the fray to help the Chronomat fit in with other Breitlings of the era. Dial-wise, applied baton hour markers replaced former versions often found with Arabic numerals. The Venus 175 remained in place ad the Brevet (patent number) moved from the dial to the snap-back case back. Sadly, although I enjoy the sentiment this watch now contains, my version’s case back was polished off to make room for an inscription that shows it was give to “Marvin” in 1962. Lucky guy…


When digging into the initial history of the Chronomat, and this carried through with the Breitling Chronomat 808, the watch wasn’t actually designed for navigational purposes. Unlike the later Navitimer, it seems that the Chronomat was made for engineers, mathematicians and those who made it their task to solve problems. The aforementioned posting on Watch U Seek, maintains that the Chronomat was second to the market as a slide rule watch, but it seems it was first to combine the practical tool with a chronograph. Whatever the case, we can certainly state that this Breitling was the first popular watch with a Slide Rule. The article also states that no mention of the watch’s use for pilots can be found until a late 60’s AOPA advertisement makes the link (the 808 gave way to a much different, automatic Chronomat in the late 60’s). Think of this as a dressier 1940’s version of the 1980’s Casio digital calculator watch and you’re in the same ballpark, er – classroom.

When taking a detailed look into the cosmetics of this Breitling Chronomat 808, it becomes clear that this is one amazingly attractive chronograph. With its slender, chamfered lugs, a Breitling calling card, 36mm case size and 18mm lugs, the Chronomat straddles the fine line between tool and elegant watch.But taking a look at the watch from the side and seeing how the bezel overhangs the case and angles outward, it actually measures in at over 37mm in diameter. That angling attribute, by the way, is extremely similar to the ultra rare “wide bezel” Cosmonautes that were later introduced when Scott Carpenter requested such piecesfrom the brand for space exploration purposes. The bezel, which is beautifully beaded, is easy to turn but contains a bit more tension than in the Navis and Cossies I own.

If there’s one “beef” I have with vintage Cosmonautes and Navitimers, it’s that their crystals portray a vast expanse of fragility. Combine this with a total lack of water resistance and bezels that spin as freely as Robert-Jan on his Technics SL1200s and I must confess that wearing these big watches feels precarious. Yes, they’re deservedly seen as icons, but they’re just not that practical unless you live in a dry room made solely of pillows. The Breitling Chronomat 808, in my view, gets it right. You have all the trademark Breitling looks, but the size is far more wearable and it feels a bit more solid. This is all despite a slim profile of roughly 11.5mm.I bought this Breitling Chronomat 808 roughly two years ago from a dealer in Philadelphia for about $1400. This was a nice deal then, but it’s a steal today. Good Chronomats regularly cross the $3000 mark and rare versions (like early 769’s) now see $4000+ with relative regularity. Be on the lookout for dial damage – this one has a touch, but it’s deemed as quite presentable in Breitling circles – that often leads to redials. Additionally, incorrect hands and other parts are typical as well.

Rolex Daytona watches are Generally Available

The history of the watch is quite interesting, with the first model being created in 1963, when it gained a lot of popularity and was preferred to other luxury watches of its time. However, a new series was released which became even more popular; this new series was improved when it came to mechanism and precision but also when it came to style, design and functionality like Triplock Rolex crown. However, unlike the watches from the first series, this series was actually a lot more expensive, since it was made with high end materials such as platinum, gold or diamonds. This made it hard to obtain by the average population so the demand for replica watches rose.

Rolex Daytona watches are generally available with a watch case made of 18 carat white gold, 18 caret yellow gold, pink gold and stainless steel. Additionally, the cases can be further accessorized by bezel, sapphires and diamonds. Dials are generally 40mm in size with black back, crocostrap, 18 carat yellow gold and 18 carat white gold.

Fortunately, these replica watches usually offer the same features, the same look and feel for a fraction of the initial price. The best way to see how well these replica watches are made is to compare them with the original watches to the smallest detail. As you can see here, the watches are quite similar and even the writing on the dial is exact, including the markings on the bezel. But on closer inspections, there is a difference between this watch and the original, as it seems that this watch has the secondary crowns with a slightly different design. Also, the markings inside the bracelet seem to be different and the back case of the watch has a green hologram, but that is actually very common for replica watches so there shouldn’t be any worries. However, an untrained eye would see no difference between these two remarkable watches, so we can truly say that this well-made replica is definitely worth buying as a gift for someone close or an accessory to wear yourself.
