With all the newness unleashed from brands across the industry this year, whether at Watches & Wonders or elsewhere, most of us have yet to have a chance to take a step back and appreciate everything we’ve seen in context. That changes today because we’ve assembled the Hodinkee editorial staff to deliver our personal favorites as we inch toward the mid-point of 2023. Of course there are still plenty of best UK replica watches to come before this year is out, but while we have something of a lull, we figured there was no better moment to declare our mid-year picks.
From big brands like Cartier and TAG Heuer to independents and even newcomers on the watch scene, here are our favorite top fake watches releases of 2023…so far.
Replica Tag Heuer Carrera ‘Glassbox’ Chronograph Watches
I’ve had the chance to spend three distinct occasions with the new perfect fake TAG Heuer Carrera Glassbox 39mm chronograph watches this year. The first was a bit of hands-on time with the blue dial in New York ahead of Watches & Wonders. I handled the black reverse panda configuration in the TAG booth at W&W, and capped things off with a bit more time with both high quality copy watches at the brand’s debut of a new campaign with Ryan Gosling in London a few weeks after the trade show. This is all to say that I have had ample opportunity to develop thoughts. On a surface level, my main thought is that I prefer the blue dial to the reverse Panda but find both variations massively compelling from a consumer standpoint, and game-changing for TAG Heuer.
I love the 39mm sizing and how it wears more like a vintage 37mm 1:1 replica watches when worn on the wrist. The Glassbox crystal is a callback to the past, but the sloped dial is a modern invention that helps to bridge the old and the new. The blue dial version is a masterclass in honoring the past without sacrificing future growth. This is the new platform for the Carrera so this big swing needed to produce a home run which I can confidently say this release did. I’ve not been the target audience for the AAA TAG Heuer Carrera super clone watches in the past, but with the new 39mm Glassbox, that changed. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing how this new design code evolves going forward.
Fake Cartier Baignoire Bangle Watches
Rewind to last month’s trade show, and picture a small-ish presentation room packed full of eager Hodinkee editors, patiently seated with their fresh Cartier-branded notebooks and pencils. Out came the yellow gold luxury replica Cartier Baignoire Bangle watches, perched on a red wooden tray lined with plush beige velvet. The connection was instant and I snatched her up before anybody else could get their paws on what I knew was going to be an important part of my week in Geneva.
The funny thing is that I’ve never been super into the Baignoire, it’s a little small and a touch too “ladylike” for my taste. But mounting this curvy, elongated oval watch onto a bangle, well that was a stroke of pure genius. On a bangle, the Baignoire becomes a whole new category of fake watches wholesale. It’s not jewelry in the traditional laden-with-diamonds sense, nor has it been grossly miscategorized as “jewelry” by virtue of a few afterthought gemstones scattered on the dial or bezel.
This watch is a sleek piece of intentional design made for a consumer that Cartier is willing to recognize: a woman who likes both Swiss made replica watches and jewelry and who maybe isn’t afraid to – shock, horror! – stack them on the same wrist (what this bangle watch was actually designed for). Hardly a revolution when you zoom out of the watch-centric bubble we operate in but I will take each small win as a victory worth celebrating.
I would wear this China replica watches, stacked, by itself, in yellow gold or covered in pavé diamonds. It’s elegantly vintage-inspired and yet remains thoroughly modern in concept. It’s pretty much perfect.
