Sometimes you just want to go all-out, right? For this week's Bring A Loupe, that's what I did, finding great examples of replica watches that range from the iconic and everyday to the rare and obscure. Whether it's an awesome Replica Rolex Submariner with box and papers that's up for auction or a pristine mid-century Patek Philippe perpetual calendar, we've got you covered. There's a curveball or two also ?you know, just for a little extra fun.Audemars Piguet Jump Hour Minute Repeater In Platinum
Spend enough time researching and studying Audemars Piguet, and you'll quickly see what an important role complicated timepieces, and more specifically repeating watches, have played in the watchmaker's history. What's more, these aforementioned repeating replica watches have almost always been produced in extremely small numbers, only adding to the appeal of already mechanically impressive replica watches from one of the finest manufactures around.
Audemars Piguet continues to produce innovative repeating replica watches to this day, but for a moment, let's focus on a minute repeater from not far back in their back catalogue. This is a truly traditional watch, that despite having been sold in 1997, boasts all the charm of an early complication of another era. Just six examples of this jump hour reference were ever produced in platinum, and the one in question is nothing short of beautiful.
At 29mm across and 38mm tall, this piece has a nice presence on the wrist, though without pushing it too far like so many modern complicated replica watches do. This one will no have no problem slipping under a cuff, further intensifying its already strong sleeper factor. The jump hour display with a central hand is extremely classic and the slide for the repeater sits elegantly close to the left side of the case.

Having mentioned repeating watches, there's a distant cousin of the complication that's deserving of closer consideration in the eyes of collectors. I speak of course of movements fitted with mechanical alarms, primarily those from the 1950s and 1960s. There's so much value to still be had in many of these watches, and the market at large seemingly hasn't taken notice.
With any vintage fake watch purchase, condition should always be a top priority. This Gruen luckily checks that box, as it's being offered in new old stock condition, with a razor sharp, oversized case, and a perfect dial. What makes this one particularly interesting is the aperture at 12 o'clock which indicates whether or not the alarm is currently activated. This is made possible by the Langendorf caliber 1244 that you'll find beneath the solid caseback. The bottom line is that this is a terribly cool fake watch with a very reasonable price tag.
Justin Vrakas of WatchSteez is currently offering this Gruen for $2,295. You can see the full listing here.Patek Philippe Ref. 3448 Perpetual Calendar
There are vintage perpetual calendars, and then there are vintage perpetual calendars. This, dear readers, would be an example of the latter. What you're looking at is one of the single most important and aesthetically pleasing perpetual calendar timepieces to ever be produced. How's that for an introduction?
This is an outstanding, yellow gold example of the Ref. 3448 from Patek Philippe, as evidenced by the unpolished Antoine Gerlach case, flawless original dial, and crisp hallmarks, including those on the original tang buckle. Nicknamed the "Disco Volante" or "Flying Saucer" by collectors, this oversized complication of world class status is just about as good as it's going to get if you're in the market for a top shelf 3448. My guess is this example was originally purchased and then spent the bulk of its life in a drawer somewhere ?and I'm surely not complaining.
As you'd expect, the fake watch is accompanied by a Patek Philippe box, along with a recently issued Extract from the Archives confirming its date of manufacture, date of sale, and specifications.
European fake watch Company in Boston has this ref. 3448 listed at $209,000. See the full listing here.
Editor's Note: The price of this fake watch has been updated since the original publishing of this story.ADVERTISEMENT Wind Vintage x Bob's replica watches Replica Rolex Auction

To wrap things up this week, we've got a smaller piece from Gübelin, but one that would certainly turn heads on a lady's wrist. Cased in 18k white gold with diamonds, this square fake watch features ornate, stepped lugs, and a silver dial with applied markers. Save for a few spots on the dial, the fake watch is in otherwise great shape, and is very representative of what a "luxury" fake watch was during a particular part of the last century.
It's also worth noting that the fake watch is being offered on its original 18k white gold bracelet, which is stamped with both a typical hallmark and the Gübelin logo ?a Gübelin box is included too. Do you know of a better ladies' piece at this price point?
This Gübelin is being offered by a seller on eBay from Wheaton, Illinois, for $1,450. See the full listing here.Bring-a-loupe A Stunning replica Rolex Daytona A Late Breguet Type 20 A Cool Favre Leuba Bivouac And More 1206
