Anyone born in the ‘80s knows it was a decade famous for leg warmers, epic sci-fi blockbusters and droppin’ E’s (among other things). It was also a time of real change in the world of AAA UK replica watches. Innovation was rife, Gerald Genta was Gerald Genta-ing, and watches were hitting mainstream culture – which is why there are so many epic birth year watches in the ’80s.
Birth year fake watches for sale are a great way of marking a birthday, and feeling doubly connected to a watch on your wrist, so we asked the experts to pick out their faves from every year in the ’80s.
1981: Replica Rolex GMT Master REF 16750 Watches
No decade goes by without Rolex being Rolex and doing something big. Between the ‘70s and ’80s, top UK Rolex replica watches was riding the high of this dual-coloured bezel, or what you might know as the Pepsi Rolex. Supposedly released at the beginning of the ’80s, (the history books are a little cloudy here), it remained in production until 1988. A fairly short stint for the life of a watch. So if you can get your hands on one, such as this 1981 model, you’re talking the good stuff. With a quickset date function and a hacking second hands feature, it meant that the luxury copy watches could be set to the exact second. The 16750 (I struggle to remember PIN codes so we suggest writing that one down) also featured sapphire crystal, as opposed to earlier acrylic crystals and a slightly larger case at 40mm.
1984: Fake Breitling Chronomat Watches
Not just experts in fine watchmaking, Swiss movements Breitling replica watches has long been leaders in creating portmanteaus. Chronograph and automatic? Chronomat, duh. As Breitling began thinking about its big 100-year milestone, what better blow out than starting a revolution? After taking over Breitling in the thick of the quartz crisis – a bold move in itself – Ernest Schedier wanted to put the mechanical chronograph back in focal view. While the hubbub of slim super clone watches wholesale with tiny quartz movements was in vogue, Breitling embraced the chronograph once more, putting mechanical watches back on the map with the return of this collection. “The 1984 Chronomat is a watch that could easily be identified as a ’90s watch. It’s bulky and a bit gawky,” shares vintage watch collector, Bas of Vintage View. “It would probably be the reason why it got so popular because the design aesthetics would dominate for the next 15-20 years. It’s the pre-runner on everything that would be in the same space of watch design. [One of the] big names [then] was Breitling. It was the watch to have.”
1986: TAG Heuer Formula 1 Replica Watches
The watch world might be presently beefing about a certain plastic watch collaboration, but the plastic bezels on cheap fake TAG Heuer’s first Formula One watches will forever be applauded. Rewind. In January 1986, TAG acquired the rest of its name we know (and love) today, Heuer. Challenged to create a watch for the launch, the merger opted for a colourful, inexpensive quartz replica watches online celebrating Formula 1 (in homage to Jack Heuer relationship with the motorsport, and TAG Heuer’s involvement with Marlboro McLaren in the days of pre-papaya.) Today, these steel core cased, rubber strapped beauties are experiencing a real boom, perhaps given the popularity of Drive to Survive. Scoring one of these sought-after babies might not get you the ticket you want into the paddock lane just yet, but you’ll be fully immersed into the fan club of Formula 1. We’ve all gotta start somewhere, right?
