The Cheap 1:1 Fake IWC Yacht Club II Ref. 3212 Watches UK Is A Genta Design I Would Like To See Reborn

Last year, the IWC Ingenieur returned. The original Gérald Genta design got reworked and, when launched in steel and titanium, proved an alternative to the (un)available Royal Oak and Nautilus, the most iconic of Genta-penciled Swiss made replica watches. A recent visit to IWC’s museum in Schaffhausen, on the banks of the river Rhine, sparked a couple of eureka moments. The first one happened when I laid my eyes on the IWC Yacht Club II ref. 3212 in the showcase. The second came a bit later. I will elaborate on that second moment of clarity, but first, let’s focus on a Genta design that, in my humble opinion, stood the test of time way better than others.

What were your thoughts when you saw Credor’s Genta-designed Locomotive come back to life recently? Did that €14,000 watch make it difficult to choose between it and the also-Genta-designed and similarly priced AAA UK fake IWC Ingenieur watches? Or did you instantly reject it as some of our readers did in the comments below the introduction article? Calling it “a derailed design” was rather funny, I thought. Anyway, we are living in a watch world where everything Gérald Genta touched gets a chance to be revived or remolded. There’s the Gerald Charles Masterlink, for instance, and last week, the LVMH-owned Gérald Genta brand launched a new version of the Gentissima Oursin, the 1994 copy watches for sale inspired by sea urchins. So why should IWC also bring back the Yacht Club II ref. 3212? Wouldn’t that be Genta overkill?

The missing Genta link is the IWC Yacht Club II ref. 3212

IWC brought the Yacht Club watch to market in 1967. Because of its broad, flared lugs, the 36mm perfect replica watches had a distinct look, but at the same time, the dial with its stick markers was quite straightforward and sober. It proved a winning combination because the Yacht Club became IWC’s best-selling model in the late 1960s and early 1970s. But it’s not this commercial success that I’d like to see return to the IWC catalog. It’s the Yacht Club II ref. 3212 that debuted in 1977.

Actually, there were two versions of the watch — reference 3212 with a bracelet and 3211 with a strap. The best fake watches in the IWC museum has a leather strap, but the sign reads “Ref. 3212” despite it being a 3211. That’s no biggie, though, because it made me think of re-releasing the two historical references as one new one; the practicality of quick-change straps comes into play here.

Quartz or automatic?

The Yacht Club II came just one year after the launch of the Genta-designed Ingenieur SL ref. 1832. The Ingenieur was the flagship watch in IWC’s SL collection. “SL” stood for “steel,” and the collection comprised several luxury sports watches with steel cases and bracelets. The Yacht Club II with its octagonal and beveled bezel and swooped case shape perfectly fit the zeitgeist. But the JLC 900-based automatic caliber 3254 that powered it didn’t. The Quartz Crisis raged, and IWC started to outfit later 2024 China replica IWC Yacht Club II watches with quartz movements. A re-edition with updated tolerances, finishing, and materials with a quartz movement is out of the question, of course. A future version must have a mechanical caliber.

After being in production for about a decade, the Yacht Club II was discontinued. There are five Yacht Club references in the current IWC collection, but these super clone watches wholesale are part of the Portugieser family. They have little to do with the original Yacht Club and absolutely nothing in common with the edgy Yacht Club II.

Steel only or two-tone as well?

The Yacht Club II in the museum has the 40mm “Jumbo” case, and that size is spot on in this day and age. IWC’s current versions of the Ingenieur also have a 40mm case in steel or titanium. The 10.8mm thickness befits a luxury sports replica watches online with an automatic caliber and a central rotor. Yes, a sub-10mm thickness would have been even more desirable. In the article “High-End Integrated-Bracelet Sports Watches Deserve To Be Slim,” I wrote that when a watch is “over €10K, it must be less than 10mm thick.” I still stand by that statement, so, if IWC decides to bring back the Yacht Club II, it should be at least 0.9mm thinner than the revamped Ingenieur, which costs €12,900 in steel and €16,100 in titanium.

Will top IWC fake watches‘ caliber 32111 fit into a case measuring less than 10mm thick? That’s a question only the brand’s engineers can answer. This 120-hour-power-reserve movement seems to be the most appropriate caliber for another Genta design brought back to life. A more difficult matter is what materials to use for the case and bracelet. A full-steel version is obvious. The titanium used for the “Ingenieur 2.0” isn’t so much. A two-tone version, however, would be very appropriate. IWC produced the Yacht Club II in a mixture of steel and gold as well.

The Yacht Club II 2.0 is two watches in one

Apart from stating my preferred materials for the case and bracelet, I won’t go into too much detail. I trust IWC’s Head of Design Christian Knoop and his team to get it right. So I will not write to avoid using beige Super-LumiNova to mimic discolored tritium on the stick indexes, etc (oops, I guess I did). But I do need to emphasize that the updated Yacht Club II should merge references 3211 and 3212 from the start.

In other words, I envision a Yacht Club II that comes with a leather strap and a bracelet. And thanks to IWC’s EasX-CHANGE system, the owner should be able to swap the sporty integrated bracelet for a more dressy look with leather just like that. In my opinion, this Genta design works best on leather.

A watch family of oddballs

My visit to the IWC museum didn’t just spark my interest in the Yacht Club II. It also got me thinking about a completely new IWC watch family. As you know, the reintroduced Ingenieur isn’t part of a family. It stands alone. That’s good. It means you will probably never see an Ingenieur perpetual calendar with a double moonphase indicator. But the Ingenieur could also mark the start of a collection of specific watches with something else in common other than their looks. The element that binds these high quality replica watches is historical significance.

A reference I believe would be perfect for such a collection is the 1986 Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar ref. 3755 in black or white ceramic. These were the first wristwatches made of high-tech ceramic zirconium oxide. Another candidate is the 1998 GST Aquatimer ref. 3536. Forget about creating a whole string of new Aquatimer variants. Stick to one model that captures the essence of that dive watch, and be done with it. By creating the Historic family, IWC would have the freedom to recreate significant replica watches for men from the past without the stress of devising a consistent watch collection pivoting around a single watch.

Does the Yacht Club II also intrigue you?

Please tell me that despite the plethora of Genta revivals, a reinterpreted version of the IWC Yacht Club II ref. 3212 also intrigues you. And if it doesn’t, I also want to read about it. Suggestions are, of course, also welcome. I will pass everything on to IWC; you can be sure of that.

IWC Schaffhausen Unveils Its Ceralume® Technology And Manufactures The First Luxury AAA Fully Luminous Ceramic IWC Replica Watches UK

IWC Schaffhausen has developed a proprietary luminous ceramic technology called Ceralume®.

Based on a highly engineered and patent-pending process, developed by IWC’s engineering division XPL, the technology enables IWC to produce fully luminous ceramic Swiss made replica watches cases for the first time. This is achieved by homogeneously mixing ceramic powders with high-grade Super-LumiNova® pigments, a luminous material that acts like a battery for storing light energy. In dark chamber tests, a fully luminous concept 1:1 China fake watches manufactured using the Ceralume® technology has emitted a bright blueish light for more than 24 hours.

Over almost four decades, IWC Schaffhausen has acquired comprehensive expertise in engineering ceramic copy watches for men. Ceramic is light, extremely hard and highly resistant to scratches. Back in 1986, the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer launched the world’s first wristwatch with a black zirconium oxide ceramic case. Since then, major IWC ceramic innovations have included watch cases made of brown silicon nitride ceramic and black boron carbide ceramic, one of the hardest substances known. After introducing a range of TOP GUN models in striking coloured ceramic, top UK IWC replica watches is now pushing the boundaries with Ceralume®. This luminescent ceramic is made using a highly engineered and patent-pending manufacturing process developed by IWC Schaffhausen.

“With the first fully luminous ceramic case rings, we underscore our role as a pioneer and innovator in ceramic best replica watches. The development of Ceralume® took several years. The main challenges we faced were producing watch cases with maximum homogeneity and meeting our exacting quality standards. To achieve these goals, we engineered a ground-breaking new manufacturing process – tailored to the unique combination of ceramic powders and Super-LumiNova® pigments,” explains Dr. Lorenz Brunner, Department Manager Research & Innovation at IWC Schaffhausen.

The fascinating glow effect is achieved by adding high- grade Super-LumiNova® pigments to the ceramic raw materials. Engineered by Swiss technology company RC Tritec, Super-LumiNova® is a high-tech ceramic compound that behaves like a light storage battery. The material absorbs light energy from sunlight or artificial light, stores it temporarily and then emits the absorbed energy as visible light. This cycle can be repeated an infinite number of times without ever causing the material to age or diminishing its light storage capacity. In dark chamber tests, Ceralume® cheap fake watches cases have emitted a bright blueish light for more than 24 hours.


Conventional white ceramic is made by mixing zirconium oxide with other metallic oxides. These powders are shaped into a so-called green body, machined close to the final case geometry and then sintered at high temperatures in a kiln. For the white ceramic to glow in the dark, Super-LumiNova® pigments are added to the mix of raw materials. One of the main challenges in the development of Ceralume® was achieving a perfectly homogeneous mix of raw materials despite their different particle sizes and avoiding particle accumulations. To achieve this, perfect IWC super clone watches‘ engineers reverted to a dedicated ball milling process, which had to be customised to the raw materials used. In addition, the parameters of the sintering process and the grinding of the sintered ceramic body also needed to be specifically adapted to the luminous ceramic.


Using the new Ceralume® technology, IWC’s experimental division XPL has manufactured a fully luminous ceramic concept watch for the first time. In addition to its Ceralume® case, the concept replica watches wholesale in a Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 design features a white luminescent dial and a white luminescent rubber strap. The dial and the strap have also been enriched with Super-LumiNova® pigments. The dial’s brass base is sprayed with a Super- LumiNova® solution before the printing is added on top of the luminescent layer. Manufactured in an injection moulding process, the white rubber strap is likewise enriched with Super-LumiNova® pigments.

Developed by IWC Schaffhausen, the patent-pending Ceralume® technology will form the foundation of future developments and releases.

880 – Replica Patek Philippe Ref. 5059R-017 London Edition Watches

This is an example of high quality Patek Philippe fake watches‘ top-of-the-line perpetual calendar in the late 20th century (that distinction now goes to the ref. 5236P linear calendar), the perpetual calendar with retrograde date.

The lineage began with the ref. 5050, the brand’s first perpetual calendar with centre seconds after the ref. 2497 and 2438-1 of the 1950s and 1960s. In 1998, the ref. 5050 was succeeded by the functionally identical ref. 5059, a more modern but still classical luxury copy watches with an officer’s case featuring a hinged back.

This version is a limited edition made for the Watch Art Grand Exhibition in London that took place in 2015. The pink gold case places its amongst the rarest case metals for the model, which was made from 1998 to 2006, with 1200 to 1400 estimated to have been made in all metals. The number in pink gold is believe to be between 300 to 400.

But it’s the dial that really makes this special. Finished with sunburst brushing and a metallic brown, the dial has applied numerals, a feature unique to limited edition or special order variants of the ref. 5059. The standard versions of the model all featured printed numerals.

While the exact number of this edition is not known, only a few were made. This is only the second example of this version to emerge at auction. The first example was sold at Phillips last year for HK$635,000 including fees.

Maintained in exceptional condition, the ref. 5059R is a full set with box, papers and accessories. It has an estimate of HK$400,000-800,000, or US$51,300-103,000.

914 – Fake Omega Tourbillon 30 I Watches

The first-ever Swiss-made tourbillon movements for wholesale replica watches came far earlier than most would think: in 1947 Omega made a dozen cal. 30 I tourbillon movements with an unusual carriage rotation of 7.5 minutes instead of the traditional 60 seconds.

Seven of the movements were submitted for testing at the Geneva, Neuchatel, and Kew-Teddington observatories over several years starting in 1947 until 1952. In 1950, the cal. 30 I numbered “10’595’933” earned an outstanding score of 867.7 points, the highest-ever result in the category.

The movements submitted for the observatory competitions were never offered for public sale, instead they were used in marketing materials to emphasise Omega’s status as a leading chronometer maker. One movement, however, was transformed into a prototype wristwatch, making it the first Swiss-made tourbillon wristwatch, and in 2017 it sold for over US$1.4 million.

The top super clone watches on offer here is a more recent example, part of a batch of seven of movements that were rediscovered, decorated, cased, and sold in 1987.

This bears movement number “10’595’943”, or ten digits removed from the record-setting example tested in 1950. It was the second-t0-last movement made and tested at the Neuchatel observatory in 1947.

The cal. 30 I reveals the tourbillon only from the back, where the view is surprisingly plain. Having been constructed as observatory trial contestants rather than luxury Swiss made replica watches, the cal. 30 Is were all basic in fit and finish, as revealed by the original prototype.

The seven examples cased in 1987 were reworked to dress them up for public sale, so this example features some decoration on the movement like Geneva stripes on the bridges.

This watch has been in the same collection for 35 years and is in outstanding condition. It is estimated at HK$400,000-800,000, or US$51,300-103,000.

996 – Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Minute Repeater Supersonnerie Replica Watches

Audemars Piguet is best known for the Swiss movements fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches, but it’s the best value with almost anything else but the Royal Oak. It’s a Minute Repeater Supersonnerie with a platinum case, fired enamel dial, and a low estimate well under a third of the retail price.

Moreover it’s a Supersonnerie, which means it employs AP’s case construction system based on three patents, including one for a second case back that functions as a soundboard. The result is perhaps the loudest and most resonant minute repeating wristwatch on the market. It’s made all the more notable by the heavy platinum case, which would ordinarily be a detriment to the sound.

More classical in style than the Code 11.59, the Jules Audemars line was AP’s classic, round-watch offering for almost two decades. This repeater is typical of the design, with polished bezel and lugs matched with a brushed case middle.

The aesthetic is restrained with a grand feu enamel dial in a smoked finish that’s a dark blue in the centre that darkens to black at the edges.

The replica watches for sale is fairly large at 43 mm in diameter and 13.16 mm thick, which is a consequence of the Supersonnerie construction that requires a double case back as well as substantial open space within the case for resonance.

The case back has perforations around its rim to allow sound to be transmitted outside the case, another feature of the Supersonnerie. It’s also decorated with cast relief of a watchmaker at a bench.

The Supersonnerie is in like-new condition and is presented with its box, papers, and accessories. The estimate is HK$780,000-1.56 million, or US$100,000-200,000.
