The Luxury Fake Longines Avigation BigEye Titanium & Blue Dial

Longines replica and its Heritage collection… A range that comprises some of the most desirable watches produced by the brand, all inspired by some of Longines’ most glorious past watches, re-edited in a modern way but always with great historical relevance. One of the flagship models in this collection is the high quality fake Longines Heritage Avigation BigEye, a watch modelled after an elusive 1930s watch with quite a resemblance with some glorious post-WWII pilot’s chronographs. Also known as “Big Eye chronographs,” this specific type of watch was first re-issued in 2017 with the steel Avigation BigEye. And this year, the brand adds a new version, with an attractive petrol blue gradient dial, and a titanium case.


As explained in our review of the steel model, the story behind the steel case copy Longines Avigation BigEye Chronograph is anything but clear. The design is based on a 1930s pilot’s chronograph that a collector presented to the Longines museum, but the company didn’t have a record of the piece in its archives. Is it a prototype? What’s the exact year? Nothing is truly clear but what makes no doubt is the beauty of the piece in question, hence why Longines was audacious enough to make a re-edition of this model.
Fast forward to baselworld 2017, when Longines super clone watches for sale presented its Heritage-based Avigation BigEye. Typically, a robust, military-inspired pilot’s chronograph with tri-counter layout, classic luminous Arabic numerals and, the star of the show, an oversized minute counter providing instant legibility on the indication. While this steel/black edition is still an important member of the permanent collection, it is now joined by a sportier, bolder edition.


THE SWISS REPLICA LONGINES AVIGATION BIGEYE TITANIUM
Following the presentation of the Swiss cheap replica watches with the official photos, I wanted to have a look at it, in the metal. I personally have a big thing for pilot’s chronographs, and especially those from the Type XX series. So, even though the Avigation BigEye isn’t part of the watches made for the French Air Forces, it still has a lot in common with this series and has always been one of my favourite models in Longines’ collection. But how does the titanium version, with its bold and more colourful dial, lives up to the model’s pedigree.
Well, in all fairness, if you’re looking for historical relevance and faithfulness, this new version won’t be for you. Good point, the steel model is still part of the collection and will certainly fulfil your needs. Now, the titanium edition of the Swiss movement fake Longines Avigation BigEye watches is not meant to be a proper re-edition, but more a modern take on the concept, something fresh, more modern with a true personality. Indeed, it’s a watch with character and presence, and once you remove the vintage AAA US replica watches from your mind, it actually is a looker…
Apart from the change in materials and colours, the Longines Avigation BigEye Titanium retains the proportions and specifications of the original steel edition. This means a 41mm case with a typical 1930s/1940s shape, meaning the style of a Calatrava watch transferred to a more robust chronograph watch. This is particularly visible with the combination of a stepped bezel with a coin-edge profile and the lugs integrated into the middle case. I found this design very appealing and its utilitarian look greatly matches the overall pilot’s concept. The watch is certainly quite large and not particularly thin either, but it wears comfortably.

Swiss Luxury Fake Patek Philippe Grand Complications Ref. 3940 Watches Online

Patek Philippe replica watches for men and women has continually produced perpetual calendar and perpetual calendar chronograph wristwatches since 1941. No other brand would produce a serially produced perpetual calendar wristwatch until 1955, when Audemars Piguet introduced the groundbreaking ref. 5516 (the first perpetual calendar wristwatch to indicate the leap year), and it wouldn’t be until 1985 when another brand would produce a perpetual calendar chronograph in series – IWC with the Da Vinci Chronograph.

The top Swiss fake Patek Philippe Grand Complications reference 3940 watches with white dial ushered in all-new movements. Introduced in 1985, the 3940 stood out for its ultra-thin caliber 240 base movement with micro-rotor – the world’s thinnest automatic movement when it was introduced at just 2.4 mm thick. A major aesthetic departure from Patek Philippe’s prior perpetual calendar models, which used apertures at 12 o’clock for the day and month indicators – references 1526, 3448, and 3450 – three sub-dials indicated the day, month, date, and moon-phase, along with 24-hour and leap-year indications.

With a beautifully proportioned 36mm case featuring a concave bezel, the AAA perfect replica watches evolved subtly until it was discontinued in 2007 with production numbers in the several thousands. Today, scholars agree that, like the fantastic Quantième Perpetuel launched by Audemars Piguet in 1978, the reference 3940 was a key model for Patek Philippe copy with brown leather strap that helped ensure its success through the 1980s and 1990s. It’s worth mentioning that AP’s Quantième Perpetuel was the world’s thinnest perpetual calendar wristwatch when introduced. Patek Philippe would take that title back with the 3940 – see how competitive the Swiss are?

First series examples of the Swiss copy Patek Philippe 3940 with flat, sunken subsidiary dials, rare champagne dial variants, and early platinum examples with glossy, lacquered dials are especially interesting – and still are priced quite reasonably on the secondary market.
