IWC Mark XVII Le Petit Prince Replica – A Blue Wizard in The Cement Forest

IWC Mark XVII Le Petit Prince Replica

IWC Mark series is one of the best replicated watches in market, it is made by several big factories like ZF, MK and V6. Among these three factories, MK makes the best IWC Mark replica. However, with the rapid development of watch-making technology, these factories learn technique from each other, so the difference of replica watch made by each factory is getting smaller and smaller. Like this IWC Mark XVII watch, it is a Le Petit Prince special edition, actually MK factory published one before, the quality is good, now this one is made by V6 factory, which has been very famous for manufacturing good quality PAMs. Mark XVII Le Petit Prince is like a blue wizard in the all dark forest, genuine watch is too expensive while such so simple watch could be made 100% the same as genuine, so why not spend less on a high quality replica, I guarantee the sales person in a boutique is not able to identify it is a replica. By the way, MK version is much more expensive because it is equipped with a genuine ETA 2892, while this one made by V6 features an Asian clone ETA 2892 movement, but the accuracy and stability are still guaranteed I promise, V6 also offers a real ETA 2892 option, will need extra 108 usd.

IWC Mark XVII Le Petit Prince Blue Dial

The replica looks harmonious in whole appearance. I like simple watch, the black leather band, steel case, blue dial, all give me a fresh and comfortalbe feeling. First, the brushed stainless steel case is measured to be 41mm in diameter, this case size has already been very suitable for men who like large-size watches. The case is molded from one piece of stainless steel, it is molded according to genuine case because the factory has bought real IWC Mark XVII Le Petit Prince to research. 1:1 case construction, the diameter, thickness, the length between lugs and arc design are all perfect. On case back, the Le Petit Prince patterns and lettering engravings look very elegant. The back design is screwed down with gasket to guarantee the best water resistance.

IWC Mark XVII Brown Leather

The blue dial is really amazing. A very elegant design I like, three hand with luminous hour and minute hands, second hand features a shooting star end, other Mark series watches do not have this feature. The big triangle at 12 o’clock is the icon of IWC Mark series. White markers on blue background make the dial highly readable. A fan-shaped date window at 3 o’clock has black date font in white background, the left white triangle is pointing at current date. Anyway, I like this type of dial because no complicated decoration, it is easy for the factory to replicate a simple dial, so the replica will look closer to genuine watch.

IWC Mark XVII Le Petit Prince Crown

About the band, it is brown, not black or grey. It is made of genuine calf leather, soft and durable. The buckle really shows the improvement of watch-making technology. It uses brushing and polishing, every corner is polished well and gives a very angular feeling. The “IWC” lettering is deeply engraved. In a word, from outside case to inner mechanism, the replica IWC is good a high end replica that will be perfectly suitable for men who need a timer in formal occasions. By the way, the steel bracelet is also available.

Replica Bell Ross BR03-93 GMT Watch From TP Factory

Bell Ross BR03-93 Replica Watch

Do you know TP factory? Maybe most of you guys will say no. Yes, you all know some famous factories like Noob, BP, J12, V6, etc. About TP factory, you have no idea. But it is a very old factory established by an experienced watch maker in 2000. This factory has been specilizing in manufacturing good quality vintage Rolex and Panerai replica watches, now they turn to make some other Swiss brands replicas. You know, TP factory has made some good vintage replica Rolex and PAMs, such as Paul Newman Daytona, Steve McQueen Explorer, Egiziano PAM 341, Mare Nostrum PAM 300, etc. These vintage watches made by TP are very popular, and the quality is good, I do believe that other brand replicas made by them will be as good as their vintage watches. Now, let’s begin the story of this Bell Ross, it is a nicely replicated BR with working GMT, I mean the GMT is working the same as genuine.

Bell Ross BR03-93 Blue Dial

It is a real GMT watch, you can see the bezel is engraved with 24 hours in black, the triangle mark at 12 is in orange color, which echoes with the orange GMT hand on dial. Square case is measured to be 42mm*42mm, it is a little bigger for my wrist, but I do love its classic square appearance. On case back, there are engravings of model number, type for usage and other details, somebody may doubt the water resistance because it is with square case, but I have to say the water resistance sealed technology has been improved greatly in replica watch world, you do not need to worry about that. What you really need to consider is the accuracy of a replica watch and its stability. But with a genuine Swiss ETA 2836-2 movement, the replica will offer you the most accurate and stable timing.

Bell Ross GMT Watch

I love the blue dial most, big 3, 6, 9 and 12 Arabic hour markers help you recognize the time immediately. All silver hour markers are three dimensional, there is luminous material applied on hour, minute hand gmt hand, which has a triangle tip in orange. The lettering “GMT” is also in orange color. The replica also has date function, the round date window is positioned at 4:30, white date font in black background. Not too much things can be talked on the dial, it is very simple.

Bell Ross BR03-93 GMT

The band is my favorite style except the Panerai ASSO strap. It is black leather band, while the front side of the leather is like brushed finishing, I like this feel, it is more beautiful than those leather bands with polished bright face. The band is wide like the case, it has a big Bell Ross logo embossed on the leather. The leather band feels very soft to wear, not hard, and because made of genuine calf skin, it is durable.

BR03-93 Case Back

At last, one thing I have to claim here is every watch reviewed on my blog is 1:1 replica, I do not deal with cheap ones.

V6 Factory New Replica Panerai Luminor Black Seal PAM 786 Review

Panerai Luminor Black Seal Replica

When I saw this PAM for the first time, it reminds me of PAM 360, two watches are famous models in Panerai world. In my experience in replica watch world for several years, the manual winding models are not popular as automatic PAMs, certainly except PAM 005 and 111, which are made by Noob factory and got a great success, they are the watches that are replicated to be closest to genuine. PAM 786 is a destro model, which means left handed. You have to admit the Luminor case of Panerai is very classic, not only meets current big watch size trend, but also has a perfect water resistance performance. Like PAM 111, PAM 786 is also a very simple Panerai watch. This is the first time for V6 factory to replicate PAM 786, so this is the first version, I do not know if they will improve it and produce a better one, but this watch has already been one perfect 1:1 replica. This has also proven one truth that more simple the watch is, easier for the factory to manufacture one high quality replica.

Panerai PAM 786 Replica

The case is measured to be 44mm in diameter, 15mm thick. The black case is not made with ceramic, but solid 316L stainless steel with DLC coating. The iconic crown bridge is positioned on left case at 9 o’clock, case is brushed evenly and lugs have perfect arc so that the whole watch can fit your wrist in a comfortable way. Solid case back is made of 316L stainless steel, there is a big OP Logo engraving on the center of the back, like genuine PAM 786, the replica has OP reference and other information engraved on the back correctly.

PAM 786 DLC Case

On black dial, there are no complex elements or decorations, just sandwiched structure with simple things. “PANERAI” lettering in white and “LUMINOR BLACK SEAL” under big 12 marker. The disc on bottom is filled with white luminour material, the disc above has skeletonized hour markers so that the luminescence can display through the disc above. All hour markers and hands will emit strong green light. By the way, the leaf-shaped small second hand is running on subdial at 3 o’clock.

PAM 786 Crown

I like the brown leather strap, exactly its old feeling makes me love the replica PAM 786 watch more. The strap is equipped with a Pre-V buckle, which has DLC coating and engraved with “PANERAI” and OP Logo. Please see the pin buckle, it looks very elegant.
