Watches & Pencils #18 - Olympic WatchesOlympic WatchesSince we have been in the middle of the Olympic Games 2016 I believed it might be nice to create a Watches & Pencils special using a gold angle. We examine some (historic) 'Olympic replica watches' and try to reveal their sportive 'core'. A large number of replica watches can be rare therefore i was required to look up for pictures on forums and shops. I'd like to thank everyone who gave permission make use of their pictures on this page.HistoryWhen you need to do an arbitrary explore the online world for any sport related watch you might hit one that relates to the Olympics eventually. Usually the watch is going to be an Omega. As we take particular notice in the good the Olympics it really is quite logical. Of course, Omega is official timekeeper since 1932. Even though there is also another brands who have been partner from the games, Omega would be the overall 'winner'. Let's discuss Omega somewhat down the road and concentrate on some less obvious Olympic replica watches first. Some with photos, others not on the other hand wouldn't let you miss it.Limited editionsThe nice thing about the Olympics for watch aficionados would be the fact just about every timekeeping partner releases a finite edition using this type of special day. Sometimes the watch is often a complete new model, most times the emblem releases an active watch/series with adjusted colors. Some interesting years with Olympic replica watches are:1964 - Olympics in Japan (Tokyo) - Seiko - Monopusher (ref. 5719). Highly collectible watch by Seiko that is worth to have a look at - View pictures via Google1972 - Olympics in Germany (Munich) - Junghans - model: Olympic Bullhead (review below)2000 - Olympic Games in Sydney (Australia) - Swatch - model: NOVA (ref. GZ158) Body of the extremely colorful replica watches for your Olympics ever made. With Aboriginal artwork to underline the ancestors of Australia. View pictures via Google Junghans Bullhead. Photo credit: wannabuyawatch.com Junghans Bullhead. Photo credit: wannabuyawatch.com Junghans Bullhead. Photo credit: wannabuyawatch.comBullhead EggA very distinctive egg-shaped metal chronograph with the famous 'bullhead'. A design for comfortable and accessible time keeping and chronograph operations. Together with the typical vertical tapered case with regard to thickness. Like many other bullheads, this watch also has hidden lugs. Flavored with funky colors it commits as to the was hot from the seventies. Vibrant white / carrot accents together over a sunburst smoke-grey center. The orange faded to a more brownish color. Because the manual wound Valjoux 7734 movement (caliber Junghans 688.10) is rotated by 90 degrees look for the sub dials at 12 and 6 o'clock. Unlike many Olympic replica watches, this watch isn't overexposing the reality that it is bound on the Olympics. Really the only subtle reference we discover slightly below the brand on the dial: 'olympic'. This probably is not the ultimate pick for every individual, but it's funky, sportive and distinctive.Multiple brandsAlthough there's often one primary official timekeeper for most Olympics nowadays, that was not absolutely the way it is. In 1972 for instance. Junghans was a certified timekeeper in addition to Longines. But Certina also launched a couple of replica watches using an Olympic flavor. The Certina chrono DS2 "Chronolympic" to name one (ref. 8501800).Longines Conquest Munich 1972 (ref. 8612-1) Longines Monopusher. Photo credit: AWCO.nl Longines Monopusher. Photo credit: AWCO.nl Longines Monopusher. Photo credit: AWCO.nlLongines released this 36mm mono-pusher for the games. Much like the Junghans Bullhead this watch can also be colorful with cobalt and pumpkin tones. It displays elapsed seconds together with the contrasting needle shaped hand and minutes around the sub dial. Due having less an hour or so counter and the minute counter at 3 the lay-out becomes asymmetrical. Inside ticks the manual wound Longines caliber 334, in accordance with the Valjoux 236 movement (column-wheel). I prefer to call the truth a semi-tonneau. It's not a normal barrel shaped case, though the round head connects almost seamless in to the (hidden) lugs-part upon sides. Also when viewed from the side, the same as almost all of the barrels do. Really the only reference to the games are available around the caseback. Not extravagant, but all of the components of 20th the Olympic Games are there.Winter GamesBesides the Olympics here are a few other big sport events with replica watches involved. The Asian Games and Winter games for instance. While I was looking for pictures, Ken of Wannabuyawatch.com did speak about a Longines for your Winter Games of 1960. Longines Conquest. Photo credit: wannabuyawatch.com Longines Conquest. Photo credit: wannabuyawatch.com Longines Conquest. Photo credit: wannabuyawatch.comIt is often a special model from your Conquest series using a unique case back. A real rare piece which I couldn't find on the internet until this very day. It's definitely dressier than many of the Olympic replica watches we have seen this far. With 35mm it can be moderately sized for the 1960's. The crown is signed while using brand over a circular text-path. It truly is modest and in proportion with all the case. The dial has a classic lay-out which falls inside the same category as other dress replica watches from this point (e.g oniss watches . Omega Constellation (ref. 14381) and IWC Ingenieur (ref. 56662).Conquest Design FeaturesA quick breakdown: mirror polished dauphine face to face a white spatial dial with very decorative and 3 dimensional raised hour markers. The markers create an excellent depth to the dial and add a amount of excitement regarding light and shadow. Though, it still is somewhat of a sports watch. Hence, the applied luminova with the hour markers additionally, on the hands. As indicated about the dial, it truly is driven by a mechanical movement (probably caliber 290).Gold MedalThe front is balanced, clear and dressy nevertheless the main uniqueness is positioned around the back of the watch. From the center Longines placed a gold medal with enamel colored parts for that 1960 Squaw Valley Winter Olympics. We immediately recognize the Olympic rings to the logo for the games with the 1960 Winter Games. Unfortunately, the remainder of the reputation this watch is unknown in my opinion. Is it for sportsman or coaches? Did everyone receive a watch or simply the winners which has a gold medal? When you have additional information we may desire to read your comments!Present and Past of Omega as well as the Olympic GamesThis year Omega is the official timekeeper again. With the 27th time and energy to be exact replica best prices on rolex watches . With it's 450 a great deal of equipment usually they are one of the vital elements of the Olympics. That compares it together with the very first time: in 1932 Omega did send just one single technician with 30 chronographs (Olympics in L . a .). What a difference!Omega Olympic WatchesOmega released lots of limited editions throughout the years of partnership. In 2010 isn't the best. They released a few limited 'Rio' editions depending on existing cornerstone models. Often with color alterations or gold accents to create a experience of the Olympic symbol/colors or true winning color: gold. They like to it the 'Olympic collection'. See the "2016 Rio" collection in addition to past/future games collections.Omega Seamaster 1956To conclude I have to leave takes place using a special Omega which has been introduced to me by Jacco of Amsterdam Watch Company. A compact (33mm) gold Seamaster to celebrate the Olympics from 1956 (XVI or 16th edition). Which has a manufacture of only 100 Olympic replica watches this piece is usually a rare watch. In the middle of the dial look for the 'Olympic Cross of Merrit' which can be applied with Chinese lacquer. There's 2 variations made: one with multi-color rings the other with merely red 'Olympic' rings. The illustration is a reference to the medal which was directed at Omega during the previous 15th Olympics in Helsinki as a prize for outstanding need to the concept of sports. For the snapped case back look for a simplified form of the Olympic Cross.Unique FeaturesTo indicate some unique features: the octagon shaped crown, dauphine hands, replica watches highly decorative hour markers and organic shaped turtle lugs. Inside ticks the 25 RA SC-471 automatic movement. Allow the pictures speak in their own business : Omega Seamaster. Photo credit: AWCO.nl Omega Seamaster. Photo credit: AWCO.nl Omega Seamaster.
