Here are five of our favorite mechanical replica watches for men
Mechanical replica watches are cool: On most of the faces, you can see the gears as they work. Unlike watches that use batteries or winding, mechanical watches are driven by a spring. Even though the spring does need to be wound, it is wound through the wearer’s arm movement (or a separate watch winder), rather than by a knob that can easily get over-wound.
If you’re planning to wear your mechanical watch every day, you really don’t have to think about *how* the watch works at all, because you’re going to do it every time you move your arm. Unless you don’t plan to wear the watch often enough to keep it wound. It takes about 24-36 hours for a mechanical watch to lose power. However, as mentioned above, there are stand-alone watch winders available to move your watch for you.
The one thing to keep in mind with mechanical watches is that they may not keep time as accurately as a quartz watch. (Quartz crystals emit a low volt of electricity when they are bent, and become a self-perpetuating power source when in a closed circuit). However, most people choose mechanical watches because of the elegant faces with shiny gears they can wear to work or dinner. They are more fashionable than reliable, and suggest a certain fondness for the old-fashioned, the hand-crafted, the well-made.
Emporio Armani Men’s Brown Sport Chronograph replica Watch
The design of the Emporio Armani Sport Chronograph replica Watch may seem deliberately busy. However, the watch achieves this effect by literally being stripped down to its gears. This elegant appears to have a brown leather band; the band is actually brown-silicon-covered stainless steel. Pairing polished rose gold details on the bevel, dial, hands, and case with the deep brown of the strap gives this watch a very refined look.
The replica Armani Brown Sport Chronograph comes with the usual roundup of cool features: Japanese quartz movement, water resistant, and a chronograph face with 24-hour, 60-minute, and seconds dials. This is a men’s watch that is competing to be as rugged as it is good-looking. You can definitely play rough in this watch in the water before dressing it up with a brown suit for dinner, or wearing it out for lunch with a brown blazer and jeans on a Saturday.
iwc Men’s Aquatimer Silver Dial Swiss Luxury Replica Watches
The iwc replica silver dial watch, in comparison to the Armani, is exactly as elegant. However, unlike the Armani, the IWC Aquatimer Automatic Blue Dial Mens replica Watch IW329005 downplays the look and feel of an old-fashioned mechanical watch. While it does have two small subdials, the face has a large, white, appealing face. The face of the watch is only 39mm, so it is not a watch that will drown you if you have a narrow wrist.
Even though the Maestro has blue arms, we could see pulling off this watch at a black-tie affair, if not quite a tux. Fortunately, despite the picture, the hands are not quite as vibrantly blue as they appear. The comfortable black leather strap paired with the round, silver-plated stainless steel case gives a cool feel to the watch: This watch is not going to run up to you and tell you all of its secrets like some mechanical watches.
You may want to substitute the buckle for a deployment clasp, depending on how physical you are going to be in the watch. Or, of course, depending on your preference. It is only water resistance to 165 feet, so you are probably not going to be going on extended diving trips in it, which would be another consideration for the clasp. One more thing that you need to think about is whether or not you want to hear your watch ticking…
MARATHON Watch: Military Divers Automatic Wristwatch with Tritium Tubes
This is a watch to geek out over. Unleash your inner military buff with this watch, which is also known as the Government Search and Rescue watch (GSAR). The watch has tritium light sources at every hour position on the dial and on all of the hands, for visibility in the darkest, deep water. There are also glow for extra low light.
The strap is made of sturdy, durable vulcanized black rubber, but it can be swapped out for a stainless steel bracelet. The bezel is not multi-rotational, which means it provides the safest way to keep track of how long you’ve been under water. It is also water-resistant to 300m. Another feature you don’t see very often is that the watch is engraved with a serial number and its date of production so it can be traced back to its owner, in case of theft or loss.
Rolex Sea-Dweller diver scuba men’s replica watch
It is not a coincidence that we are including some hardcore diver watches in our list of favorite mechanical watches for men. If you want a reliable, non destructible watch that looks as good as it runs, you may want to look at the Rolex Sea-Dweller replica Watch.
The large stainless steel case and bracelet practically shine. This is not a watch to hide under your jacket or shirt sleeve. It has a black face that has luminescence scattered across it. The silver hands make it to see, and the bevel keeps track of ten minute time intervals. Instead of gears showing the mechanism, the face is pretty simple. There is nothing to detract from the watch’s functionality. However, this is definitely a fake watch that you are going to want to show off at a romantic dinner or a fundraiser.
Breitling replica Men’s A7438811 Quartz Chronograph Silver Dial Watch
The BREITLING A7438811/g792 152s colt quartz stainless steel replica watch is another watch with a silver case and black strap band. However, the silver dial is not as shiny as the Weil Maestro. It also has a silver face with two subdials and translucent hands– black, framed in luminescent white.
The bevel keeps track of ten-minute intervals, clearly marked, which make this a great sports watch. The case has a krysterna crystal that protects the case even a little bit more than sapphire, which can crack. The strap is genuine leather and it is seamed on both sides with tiny grey stitches. This is a very nice watch, and dressy enough for work, but probably not for a suit or an evening out.
All of these mechanical replica watches for men are great options, depending on your price range and the look you want.
