Fake Panerai Luminor Marina ESteel Grigio Roccia
Its massive wave of popularity might have passed, but perfect replica Panerai has a habit of always being able to remind us of its instantly recognisable cool. There’s no point shrinking it down to 42 or 40mm, a Luminor works its magic as a big beast, but big beasts can have a conscience (right, The Rock?). The more modern look of the Swiss made fake Panerai tonal Grigio Roccia (grey rock, right) is housed in a brushed ESteel case. What’s that? A tough nugget of 95% recycled metal of course, powered by the in-house P.9010 calibre. £7,900.
Replica IWC Ingenieur
We’ll close with a coupla worldies worth busting the budget for. Finally, Swiss movement replica IWC took another look at its cult classic Ingenieur and came up with this take on the chic original. There’s a jewel-like green take on it, but we’re all for the purity of black, where the delicate easter egg of a dial makes the most of its balanced monochrome. The graphic stripe and hash relief gives the dial an unexpected vibrancy, and the bolted-down bezel of best 1:1 fake IWC makes for a sultry-smooth take on what was, in essence, an engineer’s tough, antimagnetic tool. £10,500.
