The Watch

When you buy a replica you should be able to see a picture of the watch from many different angles, especially if you are buying online. This will allow you to look for all of the details of a well-made replica and will help you steer clear of the less than high-quality replicas.

You will want to look for all of the details that you would find in an authentic watch such as the proper scale, smooth sweeping hands, stamping on the stem, and if applicable a serial number on the back. You will also want to look at the metal that the watch is made out of because you want to make sure that you are wearing something that will hold up well over time.

The Cost

Remember when you are buying your replica that you get what you pay for. Some Swiss replica watches are a lot more affordable than others, but there is usually a reason for this. You want to buy a quality product, one that isn’t obviously a knockoff. To get something that looks real and functions well you need to spend a little bit more.

Caring for Your Replica Watch

You need to take great care of your replica watch, just as you would with your authentic luxury watch. When you get your watch you will need to wind it for three minutes as this will help it to keep good time. If you don’t do this than the watch may not keep time as well as it should.

You will also want to avoid immersing it in water as most of these watches are water resistant but not waterproof. Treat your replica just like you would treat an authentic and it will likely last just as long!

Sweeping Hands, Quartz, and Automatic References

Wondering what it means when our descriptions say automatic, quartz and sweeping second hand? These are normal questions and are quite easy to understand. The sweeping second hand that we often refer to is a second hand that sweeps smoothly across the face of the watch with each second. This type of second-hand mechanism is only found in the most luxurious watches, making it appear as though the hand is constantly moving when it is actually a series of quick-moving ticks.

The reference to Quartz is simply a watch that is powered by a battery. A Quartz watch is favored by many because this type of watch usually lasts longer than an automatic watch. Of course, the downside of this type of watch is that you have to change the battery quite often, but this generally isn’t that much of a hassle and can be done at home or in a watch shop.

An automatic watch is one that is powered by a self-winding mechanism, so it does not need batteries. Many people like this type of watch because they don’t have to worry about buying batteries for the watch, but the downside is that if you don’t wind the watch regularly it will not keep very good time. This type of watch also needs to be serviced regularly to make sure it will continue to work properly.
