Pilot replica watches online are almost as old as aviation itself – consider, for example, the Santos Dumont, the practical yet joyously sleek piece Louis Cartier produced back in 1904 for the eponymous pilot/inventor/adventurer (simultaneously opening the bidding for the world’s first purpose-designed super clone wristwatch). War would see a more utilitarian timepiece take to the air, as pilots required accurate timing to guide their missions however uncomfortable the going. The realm of the skies became watchmaking manna with the advent of commercial long-haul flying, when aircrew and passengers alike sought out models with the added benefit of a second time zone or world-time function. But for those looking for its purest attributes, it pays to go back in time to the cool, retro-inspired ranges produced by the likes of Swiss made replica Breitling, Longines and IWC.
FAKE BREITLING NAVITIMER B01 CHRONOGRAPH 43
The perfect fake Breitling Navitimer is the pilot’s watch for many, and while we might pine for a vintage small-diameter one, who can resist this new range? Still with its air speed-calculating slide rule function that has born many a cockpit-based daydream, it’s unashamedly big at 46mm. While this might seem a little too much on the large side for some, legibility is an absolute must for such a competent chronograph. And with that coppery salmon dial, we wouldn’t want the AAA replica Breitling any other way. £6,950
REPLICA ROLEX GMT-MASTER II PEPSI
Arriving with the new jet set in 1955 and designed to meet the needs of intercontinental airline pilots, the cheap fake Rolex GMT-Master features local time, home time via an arrow-tipped “GMT” hand and an optional third time reference thanks to the rotating 24-hour bezel, which is always two-tone to indicate day and night. The set-up has barely changed over the years, although a new movement was introduced in 1982 with the Rolex GMT-Master II replica for sale. The undisputed king of all world travellers, models exist in Oystersteel and precious metals, but in all its versions – from “Pepsi” to “Rootbeer” and “Batman” – its popularity means there is a waiting list of several years to acquire one cheap super clone Rolex. £7,750.
