Ahh, the rarefied world of military timepieces. Often developed under contract stemming directly from a country’s armed forces, these luxury replica watches were designed for timekeeping under particularly adverse physical conditions and often incorporated special features that, over time, found their way into watches meant for the civilian market.
What follows is a selection of some of the world’s most famous military US top fake watches and a brief history and explanation of each. The list is by no means definitive, but we’ve tried to include examples from as many different militaries and countries as possible. Thankfully, there’s a wealth of information out there on most of these, so should you feel inclined to explore more deeply, there’s plenty of opportunity to do so.
Omega Seamaster 300 Replica Watches
Though developed in 1957, it wasn’t until 1967 that the British MoD began using the high quality fake Omega Semaster 300M watches, which replaced for a time the Rolex Submariner as its primary dive watch. With a depth rating of 300 meters, twisted lugs, a caliber 552 self-winding movement, fixed spring bars and a bezel with hash marks for every minute, the 1:1 replica Omega 300M watches is an iconic military diver on par with the Milsub. When one with genuine military markings comes up for sale that was used by a member of the elite Special Boat Squadron, the copy watches wholesale is almost guaranteed to fetch five figures. Omega makes a modern version.
Rolex Mil-Sub Replica Watches
Though numerous Swiss movements replica Rolex Submariner watches (beginning with the first Sub reference in 1954) were supplied to the British Ministry of Defense for testing and issue, it’s the modified civilian reference 5513, the “double-reference” transitional 5513/5517, and the dedicated military reference 5517 that are perhaps collectively the best-known military perfect super clone watches model in the world. These special “Milsubs” were fitted with a circled “T” on the dial to indicate the presence of tritium lume; fully-marked dive bezels for accurate timing underwater; sword hands; and fixed spring bars. Expect to pay six figures for an original (only 1,200 or so were made), but some companies, such as Steinhart, make tributes.
