The Rolex Day-Date is in fact a favorite of ours — as it is for many other collectors. But that’s the problem. When you’re thinking of an understated, classy watch, often, your mind goes correctly to the replica Rolex Day-Date. This amazing replica watch is inherently versatile inside this watch. The added functionality of the day and date function also ensures you make your meetings and can tell what day when you’ve lost track of holidays.
While it’s an all-around great fake watch, it is by far not the only elegant, understated everyday watch out there. Therefore, we’ve rounded up three watches that rival the Day-Date. We bet once you get one of these on, you’ll never want to take it off. You surely won’t need to.
We can see from its name that the replica Tag Heuer Link Calibre 5 displays the day and date for the wearer just like the Rolex. But that’s where the similarities stop. Positioned at 6-o’clock, the day and date replace the number but still discreetly sit there in the same color as the watch face.
The Rhodium-plated hands sweep across the dark face that has a subtle line pattern, the simple hour markers shining next to the stainless case and bracelet. The gorgeous linked bracelet and numbered 42mm bezel add a bit of added interest to this watch, but the whole look remains handsomely understated.
It’s difficult to believe that one of the world’s most famed luxury watch brands could produce a watch that succeeds to fly under the radar. Yet, the 5296G-Calatrava does just that. The silvery opaline face adds a modern touch, but the sleek, round 38mm casing, gold hour markers, and black alligator bracelet are absolutely timeless and understated. The white-gold case might also give you the impression it’s delicate, but this watch can withstand depths of 30 meters (100 feet) and boasts a 35-hour power reserve.
The replica IWC Ingenieur Automatic is proof simple, clean design can still be eye-catching. The simple black face is made with luminescent markers that shine against the 40mm stainless steel case. You might also miss the date sitting at 3-o’clock upon first glance, but will be pleased to find it discreetly sitting there next time you’re racking your brain for the date.
Inside, a self-winding 35111 caliber beats with 25-jewels and a 42-hour power reserve — the automatic movement keeping the watch ticking as you wear it. Of course, it’s all kept safe inside that durable, waterproof stainless case which solidifies this as an everyday watch you can slip on, enjoy, and not worry about.
