“Es War Einmal”, German for “Once upon a Time” is the theme of a new series of fun best replica watches from Swatch. The graphics on the watches are curious, interesting, provocative.
The emphasis here is on fun, and to connect with your inner child…as Christmas is just tomorrow! The first set we had a quick look on is based on Alice in Wonderland.
Shown above, the WONDERQUEEN (GR165), DOUBLE ME (SUOB129) and CAT ME UP (SUOW125) is quirky but brilliant graphics to depict the essence of these magical Wonderland characters.
The JS Swiss Fake Watch Co. 101 10 Year is very much a dress watch, as the polished steel case comes in a restrained (for this day and age) 38. 5mm case. What struck me most about this case, aside from its size, is the partial coin-edge you see on the bezel. I call it partial, as it does not wrap around the bezel as we often see, and it looks more inset. I have never really been a big fan of the coin-edge treatment, but in this narrowed down version, I actually do like it, as it gives a bit of dimensionality to the top edge of the case. I also think that the onion crown works well with that bezel. It seems more restrained as well, and not quite as wrist-gouging as you might get from other designs.
