Submissions for our Watch Box Stories series keep on coming to our mailbox. Last week’s story by Adrien about his (and his wife’s) beautiful Swiss made replica watches received some great responses! This week, we have a story contribution from Aashdin, who shows a variety of brands (and watches) in his hand-crafted watch box. Aashdin is a seasoned watch collector with over 450 watches in his collection. Included in today’s story are two of his treasured cheap US fake watches, a double-signed IWC Favre-Leuba that belonged to his grandfather and a Universal Genève Polerouter SAS.
After we share all the stories, we will raffle off a Peli case and a few other accessories among the contributors. So far, I’ve seen some very interesting contributions, and I am excited to share them here on Fratello in the coming days and weeks. Without further ado, here’s the story from Aashdin about what’s in his watch box.
Replica Rolex Submariner 16613 Watches
This is 1:1 top fake Rolex Submariner “Bluesy” watches from the mid-’90s — my favorite Sub. I never fancied a Submariner, but about a decade ago, I happened to come across this one for a ridiculously good price, so I picked it up. Over time, this beauty developed a purple patina, which is visible from certain angles owing to the tritium on the indices and hands. This is true wrist candy.
Fake Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.022-76 Watches
I picked up this luxury copy watches from the Daytona watch fair over a decade ago. I was specifically on the lookout for a good vintage Speedy. Quite a few were available in better aesthetic condition than this one. However, when I inspected them closely, I could find signs of refinishing or some minute anomalies. I wanted an honest one — high quality replica watches that had built its character over time. Lying in the corner of one of the vendor’s stands was this cardboard box. Since it was pretty worn out, it didn’t attract much attention. Still, I was pretty eager to see what was inside it. I asked the vendor to show me the box.
When I lifted the cover, I knew I’d found something pretty valuable for a collector like me, someone who loves a full set. I lifted the Swiss movements replica Omega Moonwatches box out, and there was a bonus hiding below it — the original warranty card with a 2011 US country code, along with a user manual and a booklet! The 1976 Speedy which proudly sat inside was just what I was looking for. It had minor scratches, which added to the character of the watch. At that moment, I knew that this was the watch for me.
When I bought it, I just couldn’t take the smile off my face. Today, you can walk into a shop and buy a new Speedy with all of the above. But no amount of money can buy the thrill of getting a vintage one with the entire set.
Breitling Navitimer B01 43mm 70th Anniversary AOPA Replica Watches
I always wanted to own this one ever since it came out. The AOPA wings were mesmerizing to me. My dad was on his deathbed last October and in a hospital for over a month. He knew very well that I wanted this replica Breitling watches for sale. Before passing away, he told me to buy one for myself in his memory. When life got back to normal, I contacted my friend Fred Mandelbaum, the grandmaster of Breitling, for his advice as to which color should I go for. “Ice Blue” was his answer. It is one of the most sentimental 2023 super clone watches in my collection.
