Scheduling a summer adventure that puts you in challenging life-or-death situations? In addition to proper head gear or diving equipment, you will need a timepiece which could take a few knocks. It should have at least 100-meter water resistance and a case and movement with state-of-the-art components and materials. Here are five fake timepieces tough enough to survive the summer.
The Casio replica is part of the G-Shock line, which is built for high-impact sports activities. This fake model has a Layer Guard Structure, a fusion of metal and resin materials that make it possible to reduce the size of the watch without losing shock resistance. The case and crown of the Sinn U1 S diver’s replica watch is made of the same steel used for German submarines. It is known for its extreme seawater resistance and high non-magnetic properties. The case was made using Tegiment technology as well, a surface-hardening process that doubles down on the hardiness of the base material.
The replica Omega Planet Ocean Big Blue is a combination GMT (second time zone) and diver’s watch with an indestructible case made from a single block of ceramic – which by the way is bullet-proof. The bezel is also made of blue ceramic, with an orange 15-minute countdown index. Even the folding clasp on the rubber strap is made of ceramic. An orange GMT track runs along the inner bezel. The hands and indexes are 18k white gold, coated with Super-LumiNova. It is water resistant to 600 meters.
The 49mm replica Panerai is almost entirely composed of carbon based or carbon-coated materials. This includes movement components which will never need traditional lubrication: the fake Panerai guarantees it for 50 years. The case is made of a composite carbon material that is very light and “resistant to external stresses.” It is water resistant to 100 meters.
The Citizen Eco-Drive Pro-Master Professional Diver 1000 is water resistant to 1,000 meters. The case is made of Super Titanium that has been hardened by other metals, including DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon). It is light-powered, with a running time of 1.5 years when fully charged, and the hands and indexes are illuminated for readability even in the dark depths of a long airline flight.
