Best AAA Replica Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Vs. Omega Speedmaster ’57 Watches

With the smell of fresh coffee filling the room, it’s time for a battle of chronographs — the Breitling Chronomat versus the Omega Speedmaster. More specifically, for this week’s battle, Jorg chose the Breitling Chronomat B01 42, and Thomas chose the Omega Speedmaster ’57 replica watches for sale. The first is an illustrious chronograph with roots in aviation, while the second is the modern version of the original Speedmaster from 1957. These two chronographs make for an interesting matchup on a Sunday morning. So grab a strong cup of coffee, and let’s get into it!

Thomas and Jorg face off in this week’s showdown. Both men have selected famous names from big brands to battle it out. While the Chronomat name might be rooted in aviation and the Speedmaster debuted as a racing chronograph, they are worthy opponents in this week’s battle. Jorg’s Chronomat B01 42 came into the news last week when Breitling introduced a beautiful 250-piece limited edition for the UK market. This toned-down version of the Chronomat was a great reminder of the initial Chronomat B01 42 that came out in 2020. Thomas’s Omega Speedmaster ’57 is a little younger, having debuted in its current form in 2022. The modern version of the first Speedmaster from 1957 was met with a lot of praise. Above all, both cheap fake watches celebrate the characteristic style of the past in a contemporary way. It’s time for you to decide which does that best!

Jorg: Breitling Chronomat B01 42

I have a bit of a rocky relationship with the Chronomat, Thomas. It’s certainly not all love from my side. When I first got into luxury 1:1 replica watches, the Chronomat represented a lot of what I didn’t like about luxury watches. For the longest time, the Chronomat was an oversized chunk of steel associated with shady characters who lived their lives at night and weren’t afraid to leave the imprint of the rider tabs on your face if you looked at them the wrong way. I am exaggerating, of course, but we all know the reputation of the previous generations of the Chronomat is well known among watch fans.

However, as with all perfect copy watches that have been around for a long time, it’s all about context. Once I started reading about the history of the Chronomat, it was easier to see the era that I am not a fan of as just one small part of the model’s history. The Chronomat dates back to the early 1940s as Breitling’s first watch with a slide-rule bezel and the predecessor of the Navitimer. Additionally, there is the story of the Chronomat from the early 1980s, created with Ernest Schneider at the brand’s helm. As I explained in the Buying Guide article on the best US Breitling replica watches from the 1980s, that version of the Chronomat represents the story of the brand’s renewed focus on mechanical watches.

Inspiration from the 1980s Chronomat

With the outside help of the Frecce Tricolori aerobatics team of the Italian Air Force, Breitling developed an aviation chronograph that set the tone for everything that came after. I love the top replica Breitling Chronomat ref. 81950 watches, which was first introduced in 1984. The watch introduced the characteristic rotating timing bezel with the rider tabs at each 15-minute interval. Additionally, the watch came with the great Rouleaux bracelet with its rifle-shell-style links. And it’s this watch that inspired Georges Kern to create the current Chronomat, one that celebrates the past and respectfully says goodbye to the previous era of the Chronomat that I just couldn’t love.

When the new Chronomat came out in 2020, I immediately became a fan, and to this day, it is my favorite model in the Breitling collection. I still love the “Kern-ification” of the current Chronomat four years later. However, I must say that I don’t feel the same about everything that came after. The long list of additions to the collection made me forget about the best model that started the current generation. Additions like the three-hand Automatic versions and the GMTs hardly stood out. The Super Chronomat stands out in size but misses the charm and refinement of its smaller brothers. Lastly, the string of limited editions might serve a purpose in targeting a specific audience, but I would not run to a Breitling boutique to pay €9K for a Six Nations-branded Chronomat.

Why the Chronomat B01 42 is the one Chronomat

No, it’s all about the Chronomat B01 42 that debuted in 2020. That is the high quality Breitling Chronomat super clone watches for me! So when I saw the new UK limited edition, I was immediately reminded of the Chronomat I want! The way that Kern and his designers reintroduced the characteristic elements from the 1980s Chronomat and combined them with a contemporary overall design creates an attractive modern chronograph. The stainless steel case measures 42mm in diameter, 15.1mm in thickness, and 50.5mm from lug to lug. In good Chronomat tradition, it’s a substantial size, but it wears like a charm. The brilliant Rouleaux bracelet adds a ton of comfort and style, and it sits perfectly on my wrist.

Thanks to the brand’s much-lauded in-house B01 caliber, fortunately, the designers never had to think about the Valjoux 7750 layout of the ’80s Chronomat. The self-winding B01 uses the traditional 3-6-9 layout and offers a fully integrated chronograph mechanism, a column wheel, a vertical clutch, and a 70-hour power reserve. Due to its sub-dial layout, the dial looks super balanced, is easy to read, and has a great sense of style. In particular, the copper-colored, panda, and reverse panda dials look great, and the new black and gray UK version would have been a great addition if it weren’t limited. All in all, though, the Breitling Chronomat B01 42 is one of the best-looking and most relevant chronographs out there.

Why the Chronomat is my pick over the Speedmaster ’57

So, why would I pick the Chronomat over the Speedmaster ’57? The answer is quite simple: the Chronomat B01 42 is the one Breitling that I would buy. Despite loving the Speedmaster ’57 a lot, it’s not the one Omega or even Speedmaster that I would buy. That’s why I would gladly pay the current €8,650 retail price for the Chronomat and save almost €2K for the right Omega. I know it might be an unpopular opinion in Fratello land, but it’s my choice. That said, I am still open to hearing your thoughts on the matter, Thomas!

Thomas: Omega Speedmaster ’57

Thank you, Jorg! I sympathize with your description of your sentiment towards the Chronomat. All of us have our bonds and associations with specific China replica watches in that exact way. Sometimes we have it with watches that feel out of character for us. I feel this is the case for you and the Chronomat. For some reason, I cannot see it on you.

I will not go too deep into the Breitling Chronomat. I tend to be a little too harsh on my opponents in these SMS articles, so let me try to stick to my contender as much as possible this time. I will say, however, that I think the Breitling Chronomat lacks some refinement. It looks and feels a bit crude to me. And, let’s be fair, you don’t typically spot it on the wrists of professors of philosophy, do you?

Okay, sorry. I went too far again. I have problems, Jorg. Still, I just cannot help but feel that the Speedmaster ’57 is by far the more refined offering. Let me keep my Chronomat criticisms to myself and explain why the Omega fake watches for men is the one to pick.

Simplicity is the name of the game

Usually, you and I, Jorg, get down into the nitty-gritty of design. I think we should do the same here. The Speedmaster ’57, namely, is fantastic in that sense. I have to admit, I tend to be completely uninterested in derivative models that flank a core classic. Had you given me any Speedy Racing, DSOTM, or Chronoscope to defend, I would have struggled badly. But the Speedmaster ’57, especially with a blue or green dial, is the one that can give the legendary Speedmaster Professional a run for its money if you ask me.

Here’s the deal: the Speedmaster is one of the cleanest chronographs ever designed, the latest ’57 perhaps even more so than the Professional. The straight lugs and steel bezel maximize the clarity, the arrow hand makes it even more legible, and the two-sub-dial layout with a date at 6 o’clock is as balanced as they come. And that is coming from someone who generally strongly prefers no-date replica watches wholesale.

I often feel that contemporary Omega releases suffer from being over-designed. Too many embellishments and elements complicate the core form. The Speedmaster ’57 is a deliciously clean break from that trend. In fact, I checked my bank balance when we had the blue one in the office. The news wasn’t good, but hey, it tells you something, doesn’t it?

It is a travel watch too!

I know you have a massive soft spot for GMT fake watches site, Jorg. Few people realize you can use the Speedmaster ’57 in much the same way! The minute and hour counters for the chronograph are positioned in one sub-dial. This means that, if you plan it and start the chronograph at the right time, you can display an additional time zone with it.

The caliber 9906 inside is impressive for more reasons than just its hidden travel feature. This is subjective, but I like the rifled striping that Omega applies, especially on this caliber’s massive three-quarter plate. Aesthetics aside, the 9906 is antimagnetic to 15,000 gauss, and the twin-barrel construction provides 60 hours of power reserve. Most importantly, you get the METAS Master Chronometer certification with all the very stringent demands that it implies.

Cast your vote: Chronomat B01 42 or Speedmaster ’57

There you have it — two modern takes on heritage chronographs from juggernaut brands! Which would you pick? Jorg’s Breitling Chronomat B01 42 or Thomas’s Speedmaster ’57?

AAA Best Quality Anniversary Rolex Daytona In Platinum And Tropical Omega Speedmaster Pro Fake Watches

Captured by our talented in-house photographers, you get a closer look at what makes these luxury replica watches so special. This week we have the platinum Rolex Daytona and Omega Speedmaster known as the “Chocolate Sapphire”.

A 50th Anniversary With Some Heft On Wrist – Replica Rolex Daytona Cosmograph Ref. 116506 Watches

Very few top US fake watches manage to get the Hodinkee slack channels buzzing with interest, but if you want to get our crew all worked up, a platinum Daytona, like this reference 116505, is a great place to start.

The weight of a mechanical watch can feel reassuring, and swapping steel for gold adds weight and a specific feeling that something special is on your wrist. That feeling is only magnified by platinum. With its matching full platinum bracelet, this weighty cheap replica Rolex Daytona watches tips the scales at a little over 280g – or 0.62 pounds. Heavy is the crown, indeed. The solid platinum links on this model cost well over a thousand dollars each, so thankfully, this one has a full bracelet that can fit up to an 8-inch wrist.

The brown ceramic bezel and light blue dial are only available on the platinum model of the high quality Rolex Daytona copy watches. The brown is matched in the rings around the sub-dials to create a cohesive and unique design. This is a watch that is peak Rolex, and this specific reference was originally released in 2013 for the Daytona’s 50th birthday.

Hotly anticipated, the collector response when this Swiss movements replica watches was released was mixed. But, over the past decade, this rare and very precious take on the Daytona has proven itself to be something of an insider’s reference. With its collectability only growing by the year, this special anniversary model leans into its ice dial and platinum construction to offer a Daytona like no other.

The Tropical Side Of The Moon – Fake Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches Chronograph Ref. 311.

There are two main branches of the perfect replica Omega Speedmaster Professional family watches, one that encompasses the Moonwatch and its myriad changes since its introduction and another branch that covers all of the anniversary models, special references, and limited editions. The first branch alone could fill a book – and does so if you are interested in the definitive resource on the subject. With the almost endless expressions of the Speedmaster over the years, not all are widely known and appreciated. Some are very rare, like the skeletonized platinum edition of 50 or the Golden Panda one-of-forty JDM Speedmaster, and some just never got their due.

Nicknamed the “Chocolate Sapphire,” this 1:1 super clone Omega Speedmaster watches (reference 311. was produced from 2007-2013, and while it was never a limited edition, it was also not produced in large quantities. The dial is brown, like an old Speedmaster that has gone “tropical” – the term for dials that have faded from long-term exposure to sunlight. The lume is also yellowed slightly to match the tropical brown. Unlike most “fauxtina” though, this color is not overly yellow, but more off-white. It is the best use of colored Super-LumiNova this writer has ever seen. Besides the dial change, this is every bit the typical Speedy Pro of the time, with a Lemania 1863 caliber that is a better-finished version of the 1861 since it is visible through the sapphire caseback.

Possibly launched a decade too early, before modern versions of vintage China fake watches really took off, this watch is an underappreciated gem within the deeply collectible world of the Speedmaster. Out of all the different Speedmasters I have been fortunate enough to come across, this is the one that I personally fell in love with and have since added to my own collection.

Swiss Top Fake Watches Brand Ambassadors Ever

This week’s topic, however, is a bit different. Ever since we started this list series, we have focused on different iconic cheap replica watches or watch series. We decided to shake things up a bit this time and explore another watch-related subject. This week, we have compiled a list of the top five watch brand ambassadors. Let’s discuss it!

Brand ambassadors are a recurring topic of discussion among watch enthusiasts. Lex wrote an interesting article about the world of celebrity watch ambassadors not too long ago. In that article, he questioned the effect that they have. Do brands sponsor them because doing so is part of today’s business practices? Do people really buy particular Swiss made fake watches because a celebrity wears it? And why are there so many seemingly obvious mismatches in the world of watch ambassadors? All points raised led to an interesting discussion in the comments. Most of you were very clear: a celebrity does not influence your watch-buying decisions. Honestly, in a community of enthusiasts such as this, that is hardly a surprise. I also do not let any ambassadors influence my buying decisions.

It’s not about influence but about association

It’s a sentiment that we all recognize. But as someone who has worked in design and marketing for 15 years, I am well aware of the effect of celebrities on the wider audience. By definition, brand ambassadors are not meant to target purists and connoisseurs. Those groups already have brand preferences that are often based on the products and personal experiences. They do not need a celebrity association to tell them what product to buy. I think it’s safe to say this goes for most of the Fratelli and the members of the Fratello team.

It’s about something different. As Thomas perfectly explained in an article last year, brand ambassadors work but not necessarily in directly increasing sales. They work in helping to drive brand perception. It’s all about the audience’s subconscious association of a face to a brand. And you can see their potential impact on a big audience. That’s what this week’s list is all about. And we’re not just talking about current brand ambassadors. This list is about the greatest ones of all time. As always, the list is the starting point of a debate, but for now, here are our five favorites.

Roger Federer — Rolex

There can only be one first on this list if you ask me. Roger Federer was and still is the poster boy of tennis. But he didn’t always have that perfect image that we have of him today. At the beginning of his tennis career, Federer was known as an explosive character on the court. In several interviews, he admitted to having to come to grips with his attitude for him to perform on the level that he eventually did. And that level and style of play were immaculate. Sure, Nadal and Djokovic have surpassed Federer when it comes to the number of Grand Slam titles won, but to me and many other tennis fans, Federer will always be the greatest.

His playing style was graceful and unmatched, his record-breaking achievements were unbelievable, and most of all, he seemed like a stand-up guy during all of it. He still does. Federer is well respected for his behavior on and off the court, making him a much-loved character all over the world. Those qualities make for a great brand ambassador. Add the fact that he is Swiss, and he’d be the perfect ambassador for any Swiss watch brand. But it makes sense that he became one of the main faces for 1:1 US Rolex replica watches. The greatest tennis player and the biggest watch brand — it’s a match made in heaven.

From Maurice Lacroix to Rolex

But as some of you will know, Federer was not always a Rolex ambassador. After sporting AAA Rolex copy watches early in his career, back in 2004, he partnered up with Maurice Lacroix for a five-year deal. But in 2006, when Federer was 24 years old and well on his way to becoming one of the sport’s greats, he signed with Rolex. After the Crown paid a “break-up fee,” Federer signed a new ten-year contract for S15 million. In 2016, that deal was renewed for a massive yearly sum of $8 million. The deal has no end date, and it’s hard to think of Federer not being one of the faces of Rolex.

During his career, Federer has always worn the Rolex models that were relevant at that time for the brand. Therefore, he could be seen wearing a wide variety of different timepieces, from the Yacht-Master II to the Milgauss to a plethora of different Daytona and the colorful Oyster Perpetual models in recent times just before his retirement. I loved the recurring scene after every match as it was so fun to watch. After shaking his opponent’s hand, Federer would immediately go to his bag, put on a jacket, take his best replica Rolex watches out, and put it around his wrist. As a watch fan, I miss those little moments. But there is no doubt that Federer will be a Rolex brand ambassador for a long time, so we haven’t seen the last of him yet.

Daniel Craig — Omega

Sure, the connection between Daniel Craig and Omega came about because of the brand’s partnership with the Bond franchise. In that light, you could say that Craig wasn’t necessarily the brand ambassador but James Bond was. But we shouldn’t forget that Craig also became an Omega ambassador later on and was seen in Omega ads as himself, not as 007. On top of that, he wore various Swiss movements Omega replica watches in non-Bond movies and while attending events. And let’s be honest; Daniel Craig made Bond as cool as he was in the five movies in which Craig portrayed the English spy. I believe that makes him one of the most iconic brand ambassadors of recent times.

In his role as James Bond, Craig wore some of the best Bond watches we have seen over the years. Without a doubt, a big fan favorite is the Omega Seamaster 300 “Spectre” that he wore in the 2015 movie of the same name. Omega produced 7,007 pieces of the watch, and the model has become a well-loved piece among collectors. You will only find a select number for sale, and they go for steep prices. While we all know Bond’s high quality super clone watches of choice was the Planet Ocean, I loved that he could also be seen wearing the Aqua Terra in Skyfall and Spectre. It was a classy choice for a man who was most certainly not a one-watch spy.

Not just an Omega ambassador as 007

Outside the Bond franchise, we have seen Craig wear a wide variety of luxury Omega replica watches. One that immediately comes to mind is the De Ville Hour Vision that he did a campaign for. Additionally, he has worn the Speedmaster ’57 60th Anniversary, the quirky vintage Seamaster Memomatic, and the Seamaster 1948. Obviously, Craig has access to the best that Omega has to offer, making it easy to make an impact.

A standout for me was the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra in Sedna Gold with a silver dial that he wore to the London premiere of No Time To Die. It wasn’t necessarily just the top fake watches — although that was impressive in its own right — but the entire outfit that Craig wore. He got people talking with his pink velvet double-breasted jacket matched with a white shirt, black bow tie, black pants, and shiny black shoes. People were not ready for that much color, apparently. I, however, think he even made that look cool, and the Sedna Gold Aqua Terra was the brilliant cherry on top.

Chuck Yeager — Rolex

One of the most beloved Rolex ambassadors was, without a doubt, the legendary Chuck Yeager. The American, who passed away in 2020 at the age of 97, was a pilot who was active in the United States Air Force from 1941 to 1975. His time in the Air Force made him a World War II, Vietnam, and Cold War veteran. In 1969, Yaeger was promoted to brigadier general in the US Air Force after serving for almost 30 years. During his time in the Air Force, he was awarded a great number of military medals, including the Purple Heart, two Silver Stars, a Bronze Star Medal, and two Legion of Merit medals.

Yeager became known the world over in 1947 as the first pilot to break the sound barrier. He did so in the Bell X-1 plane, and during his record-breaking flight, he wore online replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches that he bought himself. It’s a famous story that Chuck Yeager sent a handwritten postcard to Rolex complimenting the creation of such an incredible watch. Over time, Yeager grew into one of the most recognized and most loved Rolex brand ambassadors ever. He could often be seen wearing his beloved GMT-Master ref. 1675 later in life.

An iconic brand ambassador

Rolex honored Yeager with a very nice ad 60 years after he broke the sound barrier in 1947. The ad is a great homage to one of the world’s greats. On top of that, Yeager was always loyal to Rolex and wore the brand’s best quality fake watches with pride. The greatest proof was that he wore his very own Rolex watch during that record-breaking flight in 1947. His love for the brand never died, and that’s one of the best kinds of ambassadorship you could ask for. It’s a love for the brand driven by the product rather than the money.

Eric Clapton — Rolex

What better type of celebrity ambassador could a watch brand have than one who is an actual watch collector? We all know Eric Clapton as a passionate watch collector with a tremendous amount of impressive timepieces. While his love for Rolex is well documented, he also has a staggering collection of Patek Philippe watches. But despite his love for the two brands, his passion for replica watches wholesale is not limited to them. In that sense, Clapton is certainly not your archetypical watch brand ambassador. Nevertheless, he is one of the best thanks to his great love for watches.

If you have been in the world of watches for a while, you probably know about the famous auction that Christie’s held for some of Eric Clapton’s fake watches shop site. When I looked it up, I couldn’t believe that it had been almost 11 years since his Patek Philippe ref. 2499 sold for CHF 3,443,000. But that was certainly not the last auction. Over time, we have seen more of Clapton’s pieces pop up and go for astronomical prices. As a Rolex ambassador, Clapton is featured in two great Rolex ads that you see here. I love reading the little pieces of text as they do nothing other than praise Clapton for his career. But as watch enthusiasts, we know it’s about way more than his career as a guitarist or that one watch in the ads.

George Clooney — Omega

The last spot on this list goes to George Clooney for his China Omega replica watches ambassadorship. I had to look it up, but Clooney has been with Omega since 2007. It’s a loyalty that is pretty unique when it comes to sticking famous Hollywood faces to a watch brand. Clooney’s buddy Brad Pitt has connected his name to TAG Heuer and Breitling. The latter deal seems to be over, however, as his face is nowhere to be found on the Breitling website. Additionally, he has been spotted with the brilliant reissue of the yellow gold Vacheron Constantin 222 that came out last year. Anyway, back to Clooney.

Most of you will know that Clooney’s love for Omega is not one sparked by money. It was sparked by his fascination with space travel, a Speedmaster he received when he was young, and his father, who owned an Omega watch that Clooney has. It is a relatable story for so many of us whose love for fake watches store has arisen due to similar experiences. I am one of those people as I grew up with my father wearing a Seamaster De Ville that he wears even to this day. So not only is Clooney a great face with a fabulous reputation, but the story is also one that resonates with many people.

Sixteen years with a variety of different models

Over time, we have seen George Clooney wear a great variety of replica Omega watches paypal. He does have a strong love for the Speedmaster and was the face of the recent launch of the latest Speedmaster ’57 collection. But as you can imagine, during his 16 years of ambassadorship, plenty of noteworthy Omega models have graced Clooney’s wrist. The name, the face, the story, and the lengthy duration of this partnership make George Clooney one of the best watch ambassadors out there. As such, he closes out this Top 5 list of the best watch brand ambassadors according to us.

Final thoughts on the top watch brand ambassadors

Of course, this list could have been a lot longer. In the comments, tell us which watch ambassadors you relate to or which ones you feel suit(ed) their brands best.
