When it comes to watches there is no way around it: the vast majority of them are made from steel. While other materials such as ceramic, and even bronze, gain some market share, it is still steel that rules supreme, even among high-end watches. These are some of our favorite steel watches!
Rolex is one of the brands that made a big part of its reputation based on steel watches. While everybody is using 316L steel, the brand with the crown opts for 904L steel. We were very excited to see this Baselworld that the Rolex Sky-Dweller replica watches now is also offered in all steel, making this bold and quite complicated watch now truly the perfect travel companion.
Omega Seamaster 300
Who doesn’t like to pretend he is Bond from time to time? Getting his watch, and ordering a Vodka Martini, is, of course, the easiest way to do so. Besides that, the Omega Seamaster has become a staple among sports watches, striking the right cord in steel on any occasion. And that is probably why it is the watch of choice of 007.
The grande entrance of an incredible expansion of the Laureato collection by Girard-Perregaux introduced us to many new varieties of this legendary watch. We were especially taken by the steel version with a leather strap, which gives the watch a casual chique appearance, and makes it very versitile in steel!
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute
With the Reverso Tribute did Jaeger-LeCoultre fake watches UK achieve to make the already seductive Reverso collection even more tempting. Slim, fitted with a manufacture movement, and available in steel, they might even have created the perfect everyday watch in the process.
The 41mm steel case Tudor replica watches of the BB Chrono is at once familiar and unfamiliar. The shape and high, slab-like sides are classic Black Bay, but the additional pushers and tachymetre bezel are new to the family and quite unfamiliar. Except that they’re kind of not. If you punch “Tudor 79180” into Google you’ll find countless examples of the ‘Big Block’ chronograph, first introduced in 1976 (six years after their first chronograph, the Prince Oysterdate) which shares the engraved steel bezel and those fluted, screw-down chronograph pushers. So while the bezel and pushers may not be design details featured on recent Tudor watches, they’re certainly a prominent part of their history. One detail that’s a key part of the historic models but absent on this release is a crown guard. I understand it might be messing with the Black Bay design codes a little too much, but I really think that a crown guard would have given a more pleasing visual symmetry to the case design and a neater look to the chronograph pushers, especially when they’re fully unscrewed. The case is rated to 200m, as per usual.
Like the case, the dial of the BB Chrono is a mix of old and new. The snowflake hour hands are very much in evidence, although in a slightly slimmed down form to allow for greater chronograph legibility. The applied ‘dot’ markers are still on the scene too, though the baton-like 3,6,9, markers have disappeared, replaced by subdials and a date. The subdials – plainly printed and slightly recessed – are nicely executed and well proportioned. The left is running seconds and the right is a 45 minute counter. There’s a date at six, on a white disk neatly recessed in the matt black dial Tudor fake watches. And while many people find dates jarring, I actually think the pop of white adds some nice balance and works better than a lone, large hour marker would.
All right, the movement. When Tudor replica watches first announced this watch at Baselworld there was much surprise. When they announced it was powered by the MT5813, a COSC certified column wheel movement with a vertical clutch, the mood moved from surprised to stunned. There’s a reason so many brands rely on a handful of proven chronograph movements — they’re hard to make. Take Rolex for example. They released their first in-house automatic chronograph movement – the calibre 4130 – in 2000. Once the wonder had worn off, it was revealed that while the MT5813 included significant Tudor technology – the escapement, silicon balance spring and rotor, for example – a substantial amount of the architecture is supplied by Breitling and based on their impressive B01, first released in 2009.

Most commonly known for their square watches, Bell & Ross cheap fake watches have been making their classic round “vintage” collection of watches like the BR-126 and BR Sport Watch for years now. It’s been a while since aBlogtoWatch took a look at this collection and fortunately for us, 2017 sees the release of three new Bell & Ross vintage watches: the BR V1-92 Black Steel three hand and date watch; the slightly larger and more aggressive BR V2-92 Black Steel; and the chronograph BR V2-94. Let’s see what the three new Bell & Ross Vintage pilot’s watches have to offer, though I have to say I think all three knock it out of the park.
The BR V1-92 is the smallest and least expensive of the bunch, but it’s likely to get the most attention. It’s got classic vintage pilot’s watch style and as you can see in the image above, the BR V1-92 (furthest watch to the right) has a simple steel bezel surrounding the “ultra-curved” anti-reflective sapphire. The dial keeps it simple and sticks to the basics. It’s highly legible and the use of only black and white on the dial along with the minimal text (other than the B&R insignia, the word “automatic” above 6 o’clock is it for text) leads to a refreshingly restrained and unfussy dial.
The large, long hands on the matte black dial Bell & Ross copy watches are done in skeletonized metal filled with Super-LumiNova. The small circular date window between 4 and 5 o’clock is one of the most attractive and least distracting I’ve seen in some time and is bound to be least offensive to even the most ardent hater of the admittedly useful complication. Powering the BR V1-92 is the automatic BR-Cal. 302, their modified Sellita SW300-1. Operating at 28,800 vph, the movement gets a 38 hour power reserve. The watch, along with all the pieces in this collection, is water resistant to 100m.
In addition to the demure steel bezel Bell & Ross fake watches and design, watch enthusiasts who tend to lean towards smaller pieces will be happy with the 38.5mm wide case, slim profile, and simple black calfskin strap. I am not the biggest fan of watches smaller than 40mm (even less so when they’re on a strap) but even I see the appeal of this unpretentious and self-confident classic pilot’s watch, especially when you consider that the price is under $2,000.
If you are in New York, you are likely suffering from seasonal confusion. This rain has got us down and what better way to lighten the mood than with a great selection of vintage watches! This week we have a wide selection of watches that range from the conservative to the funky, from Rolex to Piaget, and from dressy to casual. Don’t worry, no matter your taste, we got you.
You may not equate Rolex with dress watches (with the exception of the modern Rolex replica Cellini watches UK), but back in the day they made some nice watches for fancier affairs. Dating back to 1955, this beauty features a well-made yellow gold case with beautiful detailing. The case is further complimented by a warm honeycomb dial, something that we particularly love, especially in a dress watch like this one. Add central seconds and a manually-wound movement, and you’ve got a killer watch.
It’s not often you see vertical indexes, but that’s exactly what we have on this Vacheron Constantin dress fake watches. This reference 6394Q dates to the 1960s and features an 18k yellow gold case with screw-down caseback, but the coolest thing is the cross-hatch texture that covers the entirety of the case. The movement is the automatic K1072 with a non-offensive date display and center seconds hands. If you are looking for a dress watch with understated pizzaz, this is it.
Looking for underwater alarm Vulcain Cricket copy watches? We thought so. Here is the Vulcain Cricket Nautic S23211A, the first ever alarm watch that works underwater. This function is not only incredibly cool, but was also helpful in saving lives. It allowed divers to be easily alerted when their oxygen was running low while at depth. On top of this really important aspect, the watch looks great as well with a 42mm stainless steel case and black dial with decompression tables.
