Outside of Watches & Wonders 2022, there was plenty more going on in the heart of Geneva. While close to 40 brands exhibited at the Palexpo complex, several other brands were present at Time to Watches or the Masters of Horology venues in the city, or even spread around some of the lakeside hotels. With so many new luxury UK replica watches being presented, we take a look at some of the most talked-about chronographs presented during what we labelled the Geneva Watch Week.
Replica IWC Pilot’s Watches Chronograph 41 TOP GUN Ceratanium
High quality fake IWC’s classic pilot’s chronograph watches has received a full Ceratanium upgrade long with the TOP GUN treatment. It’s the little brother to the perfect copy IWC Pilot’s Watches Double Chronograph TOP GUN Ceratanium, with a little less complexity in a similar style but smaller package. The TOP GUN subcollection started in 2007 and this new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 follows suit. The case is entirely made of Ceratanium, best IWC replica watches’ innovative high-tech material with high scratch resistance and a very tactile feel. Updates on the dial and hands set it apart from previous models, but the differences are subtle. Inside beats the in-house made 69385 calibre, a column-wheel chronograph movement based on the architecture of the Valjoux 7750. It ticks at a frequency of 28,800vph and provides 46 hours of autonomy. The movement can be seen through the tinted sapphire crystal caseback. Strapped to a black rubber strap with textile inlay, it retails for EUR 13,500.

Fake Patek Philippe 5172G Salmon Watches
The chronograph has been a pillar-like complication for top Patek Philippe replica watches for decades, with the 5172G being one of the more profound current examples. During Watches & Wonders 2022, the Maison presented the latest iteration, with a sumptuous salmon-coloured dial. It combines the already dashing 5172G design with a dial colour that’s a favourite among the MONOCHROME editorial team. The 18k white gold case of the cheap Swiss super clone watches has the familiar Art-deco style stepped lugs and guilloché decorated pushers. The salmon dial has applied numerals and hands with luminescent material. The recessed subdials are pushed a little downwards to not impede legibility and on the outside perimeter of the dial is a black tachymeter scale. The movement, Calibre CH 29-535 PS, uses 270 components and is of course superbly finished and bears the Patek Philippe seal. The Patek Philippe 5172G with salmon dial retails for CHF 68,000.
