Although it was a trend that started more than ten years ago, who would have imagined that re-editions of glorious models of the past and vintage-inspired Swiss made replica watches would still be a hot topic in 2022? But it is a reality: retro-styled watches, vintage reissues and old-school design language are still staples in brand collections across the board. There are many ways to produce vintage-inspired models; however, while some are genuinely fascinating, many fail to find the right balance between modern watchmaking and a retro look. With this in mind, and to mark the end of a year rich in new models, we’ve selected what we think were the best vintage re-edition AAA Canada fake watches presented in 2022.
Cartier Pebble Re-Edition Replica Watches
We start this selection of vintage-inspired high quality copy watches with a bit of a controversial model… There’s a lot to like regarding the design of the Cartier Pebble, and there’s a lot to dislike about the price (in all fairness, Cartier is really pushing it too hard here, with a watch that is double the price of an equivalent Santos-Dumont). But if we focus entirely on the design and the sheer audacity to revive such original cheap Cartier replica watches, kudos to the French brand because the result truly has personality. The Pebble is a perfect example of what Cartier London was capable of producing during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Unusual shapes, an interesting mix of geometrical patterns, classical touches on the dial and bold habillage. And the brand revived the luxury fake watches earlier this year in an almost identical way, with an ultra-thin hand-wound Piaget base movement inside. Unfortunately, and despite the price, all 150 examples probably sold out long ago.
Quick facts: 36mm yellow gold case – shaped sapphire crystal – beige opaline dial with Roman numerals – hand-wound calibre 430 MC (base Piaget) – leather strap – reference CRWGPB0003 – limited to 150 pieces – EUR 40,000
Omega CK 859 Re-Edition Fake Watches
The 1:1 replica watches is a typical case of “those who know, know” and a discreet introduction by a brand. Often, when something new appears, brands accompany the release with a lot of fanfare and noise. Omega did the opposite with a watch that we had to discover by ourselves. And the surprise was even sweeter, as this CK 859 Re-Edition is probably the best new Omega of the year. Modelled after a classic “Calatrava-styled” model from the 1930s, it’s a great example of the past inspiring the present. Overall, it’s modern super clone watches wholesale with a case resized to a contemporary 39mm, fitted with an advanced hand-wound Master-Chronometer movement. What matters is the dial and the shape of the case, both packed with retro charm and details that speak to an audience of vintage lovers. The dial is made of solid silver, with a classic sector style and old-school elements on the logo and the hands. And it’s not even a hyped-up, ridiculously overpriced, unobtainable top replica watches, but a nicely priced (at least considering it’s an Omega), handsome time-only watch that’s numbered but not limited.
Quick facts: 39mm steel coin-edge case – solid silver Ag925 sector dial with blued hands – hand-wound calibre 8926, Master-Chronometer – brown vintage-style leather strap – reference 511.12.309.21.99.002 – numbered edition (not limited) – EUR 6,800
