Five Great replica watches From 2019 That You Probably Forgot About ADVERTISEMENT

For all of the unforgettable replica watches that came out in 2019, there were also several that slid under the radar at the time of their launch or have since been talked about a bit less than one might have expected. Now that we're in the second month of 2020, I thought it was a good time to take a quick look at five cool replica watches from 2019 that may not have received their full due.

As always, let me know what you think I missed. I'm sure there are some great replica watches that you remember well and I don't.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Minute Repeater Supersonnerie What is it?

I'm kind of cheating here, but topping my list of overlooked replica watches that dropped last year is this minute repeater from AP. It's the first of the company's Supersonneries to come cased up as a conventional Royal Oak, taking one of the loudest, clearest, and most exciting chiming replica watches ever and packaging it in a way that has real mass appeal. Well, about as much mass appeal as a six-figure minute repeater produced in a limited run of 20 pieces (each in titanium and platinum) can have. Late last year we noticed that this watch, which is available solely through the Japanese retailer Yoshida, had appeared seemingly out of the blue on the AP website.

Why Do We Love It?

Until this fake watch appeared, the Supersonnerie had been available as a concept piece, as a conventionally-cased round Jules Audemars, and as the Code 11:59 by Audemars Piguet Minute Repeater Supersonnerie. The first of these has a futuristic look that one could argue pairs well with such an advanced minute repeater. The Jules Audemars is a classic round case that belies the complexity of the Supersonnerie within to give it real stealth appeal. And the last won the Geneva Grand Prix Men's Complication Prize. But, a conventional Royal Oak is, in my opinion, the best-looking option and the one I'd wager AP collectors were the most excited to hear about.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Regulator 5235R What Is It?

Shout out to James, who had to remind me about this one, because I actually had forgotten about the new 5235 in rose gold. The original Patek Philippe Annual Calendar regulator is a fake watch that I remember well from when it came out in white gold in 2011. At the time, I thought it was one of the best-looking modern Pateks in the company's collection, and also one of the most technologically interesting. But because it incorporated so many new features for the time, such as the Pulsomax escapement, Spiromax balance spring, and Gyromax balance wheel, serious production delays ensued. Eight years later, Patek has followed it up with an arguably better-looking second variation. With the ref. 5235R, Patek has evolved an already successful design by using a rose-gold case, vertically brushed graphite-colored dial, and black subdials.

Why Do We Love It?

The contrasting white hands not only look great, but they also really play up the watch's legibility against the dark dial, which is after all the point of a regulator-style watch. And those round rose-gold frames on the subdials are a subtle accent that really pulls this version of the 5235's design together. While several companies offer regulator-style replica watches with varying degrees of success, this one is the best-looking that I've ever seen. When it feels like what everyone wants from Patek is a Nautilus, I wonder sometimes why replica watches like this don't drum up a bit more excitement.

Hermès Arceau L'Heure De La Lune What Is It?

Again, shout out to James, who suggested including this fake watch when I ran a preliminary list of replica watches by a few members of the HODINKEE edit team. What we have here is a classically designed Arceau, which is one of Hermès's oldest case designs, in which the upper lugs are proportionally larger than those on the bottom. The dial shows two subdials, one for the time and another for the date, which rotate around the main dial once every 59 days to cover and reveal two highly realistic depictions of the moon. The moon at 12 o'clock represents the moon as it is seen in the Southern Hemisphere, and the other, the Northern. This unusual configuration of Southern on top of Northern allows the waxing and waning moons to appear as they ought to while the two subdials rotate clockwise. Two main dials are available, one in aventurine and the other in meteorite.

Why Do We Love It?

This is a beautiful, technically sophisticated complication, and it's been rendered in a way that is typically Hermès. I like both the meteorite and the aventurine versions, but I'll give a slight edge to the aventurine. I think that the moonphase is probably the most romantic of the conventional watchmaking complications, and I see this fake watch as part of a lineage that includes the Temps Suspendu and the L'Heure Impatiente. It was one of my favorite new replica watches at SIHH in January, mainly because of its physical beauty and also because the concept, which was developed by Jean-Francois Mojon's Chronode, feels right for Hermès.

Rolex Datejust 36 What Is It?

You might be wondering why this fake watch is on this list. I mean, it's a Datejust. How can anyone forget that it exists? But this is in fact a new model that Replica Rolex presented in 2019, and I think the fact that Replica Rolex updated the Datejust 36 to include its modern caliber 3235 with Chronergy escapement and 70-hour power reserve is a fact that might have been missed by some. This year saw so many high-profile Replica Rolex releases ?the Yacht-Master 42, the two-tone Sea-Dweller, a souped up Batman - that an update to the humble Datejust may not have registered with everybody.

Why Do We Love It?

There is just something about a 36mm Datejust on a Jubilee bracelet that feels so simple and so right. The Datejust might be the ultimate everyday watch. I can see this Rolesor model, with its steel case, white-gold bezel, and black dial, functioning as a nearly perfect dress fake watch even for formal occasions. But what really sets it apart is its use of the Chronergy escapement, which is trickling into more and more Replica Rolex product families with each passing year. Faced with the choice of buying any Replica Rolex with the new movement or with the older generation, I think the choice becomes pretty clear. For that reason, it's on my list.

Tudor Black Bay Chronograph Steel & Gold What Is It?

As Stephen noted in our post-Baselworld round-up coverage, the two-tone fake watch trend continued to go strong into 2019. The fake watch that we have here, while definitely a part of that and certainly no shrinking violet, was to a degree overshadowed by another Tudor release from 2019 that I don't think anyone has forgotten about: the Black Bay P01. Nevertheless, this steel-and-gold take on the Black Bay Chronograph conjures the look of the 1960s Replica Rolex Daytona ref. 6241 John Player Special with its black dial and gold/champagne chronograph subdials.

Why Do We Love It?

To me, this is just a cool and fun fake watch that puts a smile on my face. With a design nodding to one of the great collectible chronographs of all time, a nice chronograph movement from Breitling, and quite a lot of gold on the version that comes on a bracelet, it's about as luxe as a modern Tudor gets. Still, its price of $7,000 is way lower than I think many people would suspect for this watch, and it still feels like a tremendous value. Maybe I'm wrong, and definitely feel free to @ me in the comments, but I believe this is a fake watch people would be talking about quite a bit more if the P01 hadn't come out at the same time.
