In this week’s episode of Buying Time I have put pulled together a set of great pre-owned dive Watches Replica for sale, with asking prices from under-$4,000 to just over $12,500. Several of the most respected dive Watch Replica manuf’s are represented – Panerai, Omega…and more. And just for fun, I’ve got a nice lume shot of each piece. After all, who doesn’t like a good lume shot?! Many dive Watch Replica enthusiasts certainly appreciate a good lume shot. Heck, most any Watch Replica enthusiast appreciates a good lume shot. Though these types of pics can be tricky photos to capture, I think what you will see this week turned out A-OK (thanks to my friends behind the camera at Govberg!). I would also note that most of this week’s pieces are cased in titanium, a departure from the norm. So…let’s jump in and check this week’s dive Watch Replica lineup!
I’ve always liked the Panerai Submersible. It is a very masculine, hard core looking dive Watch Replica with specs to match – like the 2,500 meter water resistance. Though there are several Panerai Submersible models you might choose from, the piece I have here is a bit more special. The Submersible PAM 285 you see here was originally issued in just 250 pieces, which makes it a collectors piece. It has a full titanium case (vs. most Submersibles which are stainless steel), and the big chunky bezel is of a slightly different style, with raised hashes and Arabic numerals on the quarter hours (except for the triangle lume dot up top). It comes on a black rubber strap with titanium tang buckle. It is a full set with box and papers. More pics, price and details here>>>
44mm steel case, ceramic bezel, 300m water resistance
Originally retailing for $6,000, this high quality Omega Seamsaster Chronograph with minor wear is now on offer at just under $4k. This Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph features a lacquered blue dial with a 30-minute recorder at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour recorder at 6 o’clock and a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The polished blue ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel matches the dial color. The 44mm stainless steel case has a helium-escape valve and an integrated date corrector at 10 o’clock along with chrono ushers. Omega Seamaster fans love the traditional Seamaster look along with the added chronograph functions. This chronograph is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 3330.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving Alarm “Navy Seal Limited Edition” Q183T770
Asking Price: $9.750
Limited edition (one of 1,500)
44mm titanium case, 300m water resistance
This limited edition Jaeger-LeCoultre has a mechanical alarm in it — a neat feature not typically seen in a dive Watch Replica . The Watch Replica is built around a 44m titanium case and black ceramic bezel. The bracelet is also ceramic, but it has been rubber coated, also a unique feature not often seen. Other functions include hours, minutes, seconds, and date. The crowns are the signature Master Compressor style crowns with their locking system. With “Navy Seal” as part of the official name, and the Navy Seals logo etched on the caseback, the Watch Replica connotes that it is ready for hard core duty. This piece comes with an extra Jaeger-LeCoultre nylon strap, and complete with box and papers. Inside is the automatic mechanical JLC Caliber 956. More pics, price and details here>>>
Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver 265-90-3/72
Asking Price: $5,450
45mm titanium case, 200m water resistance
Next up is the Maxi Marine Diver, by Ulysse Nardin. This particular reference has a 45mm titanium case and the metal inserts in the black rubber strap are also titanium. I think the Watch Replica looks great in the black & white color set – definitely one of my favorite Maxi Marine’s, as far as looks go. Functions include hours, minutes, small-seconds, date, and power reserve indicator. The automatic mechanical caliber is visible through the caseback. This Watch Replica comes complete with box and papers. More pics, price and details here>>>
Hublot King Power Oceanographic 1000 732.NX.1127.RX
Asking Price: $12,750
48mm titanium case, 1000m water resistance
Last but not least is this Hublot King Power Oceanographic diver. Thanks to its 48mm size, and large crown, pushers and and crown guard, this is a Watch Replica with some wrist presence! It is also very well spec’d for a diver, including a very high 1,000 meter water resistance rating. And it has Hublot’s very impressive and easy to use “quick change” strap system. I’ve long been a fan of this Watch Replica , and if you are interested in learning more I highly recommend my previous discussions about it: Hands-on with the Oceanographic 1000, and First Live Pics of the Oceanogrphic 1000.
