For most of us, our collection of cheap replica watches evolves over time. Some go for breadth, some go for depth, and others just for the raw experience that a wide variety of AAA UK fake watches can offer. Regardless of your path in watch collecting, I figure most of us have, at one point or another, fancied the idea of a clean start – a collection reset.
With that in mind, I tasked a handful of Hodinkee staffers to imagine how they might reset their collection with a hypothetical budget of $25,000. It’s a good chunk of cash that allows the mind (and wallet) to wander into exciting territory when considering how we each might apply our own current taste and experience with the goal of starting fresh with just a few Swiss made replica watches. Dig into the picks below, and be sure to let us know in the comments what you might pick if given the same (totally fictional) budget.
Coke Vs. Pepsi (But Make It Divers) – Danny Milton
Resetting my collection is a tough proposition. The idea of purging personal pieces and beginning from scratch is something I’d rather not dwell too much on. But this exercise calls for it, so in a universe where I’m starting over again, with a healthy $25k budget unburdened with “stuff” but still blessed with the knowledge — I think I can put something together. With a quarter of $100k, I think it’s time to pick up that dream vintage top wholesale Rolex replica watches: The “Red Sub” ref. 1680. The market for this watch positively surged over the past five years or so, reaching heights of well over $50k. As things have softened a bit (the economy, amirite?), my prospects with my new budget are looking good. If you search hard enough, you can find some high quality copy watches in the $22,000 – $25,000 range. In some instances, I might need to sacrifice my dream and opt for an example not on a bracelet, but let’s just say I can find one for roughly $22,500 (on a bracelet). I can stomach that.
But it leaves me with $2,500 left to play with. Do I just put it in a savings account and enjoy my dream watch? Heck no!
This is a dream world, and in a dream world, we buy another watch. Now, the Red Sub has been a fantasy of mine for years. It’s the luxury replica watches in my all-time favorite film All The President’s Men, and Robert Redford made it famous on-screen throughout the 1970s. It’s the ultimate movie watch and ultimate vintage Submariner with a mix of red and white dial text. But for those of you who are screaming at your computer screens going, ” What about James Bond??” –– I got it covered. My second choice is the Swiss movements fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300m watches in blue, the ref. SU 196.1503, aka. The Bond Seamaster…a quartz Seamaster.
To me, this completes the two “movie-watch” collections. To say nothing of how underappreciated the Bond Omega Seamaster replica watches for men is with its subtle wave dial, patinated markers, and very ’90s appeal, I think this is about as good as it gets from a neo-vintage diver perspective, especially in quartz. And you can pick these up now for just around $2,500 bucks. On the days when I feel like the itinerary might be a bit much for the ol’ Red Sub, I’ll pick up the Omega Seamaster super clone watches site and be just as happy.
