As I just mentioned, Swiss made fake IWC introduced the new Aquatimer collection in 2004. Previously, the Aquatimer name had been part of the GST collection. In 2004, however, IWC decided to make it a separate collection of dive watches. The cheap replica IWC Aquatimer name was first introduced in 1967. The first Aquatimer was created to address the increasing popularity of recreational scuba diving.
If you look at the first luxury fake IWC Aquatimer ref. 812AD and compare it to the 2004 Aquatimers, you will see similarities. In particular, the regular automatic Aquatimer ref. 3548 takes design cues from the original watch with its internal diving bezel and dual crowns. In the years that followed, IWC replica for sale UK released a great variety of different models in different colors.
The IWC Aquatimer replica watches Paypal that have always had a special place in my heart are the Cousteau divers. In 2006, IWC released a very special limited-edition Cousteau diver. The super clone IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Cousteau Tribute to Calypso ref. IW3782-01 is still a beauty to this day. The one reason is that the watch has a wooden inlay on the case back, and it is wood from Jacques Cousteau’s famous research vessel, the Calypso. It was a brilliant opportunity to own a piece of history.
Swiss movement fake IWC produced 2,500 pieces of the watch, and it has become a collector’s favorite. It’s also one of my favorite IWC copy watches ever. Like so many of us, when I was younger, I was fascinated by Cousteau’s films. I still remember as if it were yesterday that every Saturday afternoon when I was a teenager, there would be a Cousteau documentary on Dutch television.
Owning a piece of history
To be able to wear a watch that contains a part of the famous Calypso was therefore mind-blowing when best 1:1 fake IWC’s ‘Tribute to Calypso’ came out. The watch is a diver’s chronograph that was part of a series of Cousteau divers that IWC released. The first was an automatic version in 2004 with a beautiful blue dial and orange accents. Mike actually wrote about it for one of his Wrist Game, Crying Shame articles. This 2006 Tribute to Calypso also features a blue dial but with contrasting white details. The AAA replica IWC online only features a few hints of orange in the form of the name Cousteau Divers, the sub-register hands, and the tip of the central chronograph hand. I love that the orange is not as prominent as on the other Cousteau divers.
The high quality fake IWC features a round 44mm case that is 15mm thick and 51mm lug-to-lug. However, the sharply angled lugs ensure that the watch really hugs your wrist. The watch is water-resistant to 120 meters, and inside the case, you will find the IWC caliber 79320. Like so many of wholesale super clone IWC’s calibers in those days, it was based on the Valjoux 7750. It ticks at 28,800vph and has 31 jewels with a 44-hour power reserve.
You will find most of the watches on a rubber strap. Some, however, feature the steel bracelet like the pictured model. You can always find one of these replica watches for sale somewhere, although you might have to search a bit. Expect to pay between €4.5K and €5.5K for one.
