Although style and beauty are, as they say, in the eyes of the beholder, nobody can deny that elegant design of Omega Aqua Terra wristwatch is simply stunning. Omega manufactures two version of this model: 41.5mm and 38.5mm. Smaller version replica is not available on replica market, so I’ve bought the one with 41.5mm dial diameter. Checkout the images of this knockoff for comparison and read my review, so you can decide if to go for this replica or to buy something else.

REPLICA WATCH

The Dial

As you can see from the picture of authentic watch, dial color is wrong. Original Aqua Terra dial is white, while replica color has stainless steel gradation. If you look closer, you’ll notice that hour marking on imitation Omega have much steeper angles and the flat surface is a bit smaller compared to authentic watch. The seconds, hours and minutes hands however, are strikingly similar. Luminescent dots above hour marks are also perfectly replicated. Date window near 3 o’clock mark is spot on as well as logo, font and rest of the writings. It’s not the case here, but sometimes there are spelling errors on dial writing, for example I once saw an Omage Seamster replica that said “proffesional chronometer ” instead of “professional chronometer”. It’s an easy mistake to make, eh?

The Bezel

Fortunately for replica manufacturer, the bezel of this watch is not as complicated as on other luxury watches for diver (e.g. Rolex Submariner). Although it’s considered a divers watch, the bezel has no gradations or other etched markings. No mistake on replica here.

GENUINE WATCH

Back Case Cover

Back Cover of this replica watch is transparent, as it should be. But what you can observe through the see-through window is totally wrong. Movement and rotor should be steel color, but as you can see on this imitation, the movement is golden.

Band & Clasp

The weight of the band feels heavy. Omega logo on the clasp is embossed exactly the same way as on genuine watch. Band’s links appearance is also very similar to authentic Omega Aqua Terra.

All in all it’s not very accurate replica, mostly because of the wrong color of the dial. It should be white and not grey or steel color. Another dead giveaway of this knockoff is the color of the movement that is clearly visible through transparent back case window. The right weight and correct markings can’t compensate for these two major shortcomings. If you’re looking for more accurate replica, check out this Omega Planet Ocean imitation. My mistake was that I bought Swiss replica version of this watch and got highly accurate ETA 2824-2 mechanism, unfortunately it’s the wrong color. Probably if I would get cheaper, Japanese replica version, the movement would be the right color.

First thing you notice about Mega Watch store is elegant, low key design with numerous brands in its left menu and most famous replica collections like Rolex, Omega, Cartier and Chopard, are featured in the middle boxes. In the blog section you can read about newest additions to their catalog like Everose Yachtmaster  model nr 116655 and Omega Fly To The Moon And Back watch.

PROS:

Let’s start from the obvious – their replica photos are stunning! I browsed through many categories and couldn’t find even one image from authentic watches catalog. Some other sellers use catalogue pictures for front images and the worst dealers use only genuine pics.

Moving on to return policy, Mega Watch “guarantee the complete satisfaction of each and every customer “, so no big surprises there. I’ve never saw an online store promising anything less than that. What is surprising, is the fact that right off the bat, on the return policy page they promise exchange or FULL refund. Believe me, I read many policy pages of other sellers and saw pages full of words, sometimes thousands of words, but none of those mentioned phrase “full refund”.  It’s nice to know that this store guarantees that you can get your money back. You have 30 days from receipt date to return the order back to Megawatch.cn for replacement or, as I mentioned, full refund. There is no restocking fee whatsoever, which is another advantage of this online shop.

There are multiple payment methods you can use to pay for your order: Instant Banking , Credit cards, Bank transfer, Bitcoin, Western Union, MoneyGram or Interac. I never heard about the last one, but rest of the methods are pretty common. Instant Banking grants you 15% discount. If you choose Western Union, Bank Transfer, Bitcoin or MoneyGram, you get 10% off the amount of your order. There is no discount if you pay by credit card, probably because in this case, transaction fees are paid by the seller.

Promotions from their FAQs Page:

These are the discounts we currently offer:

  • We offer a 10% discount if you order more than one item.

  • We offer a 20% discount if your order reaches $600 or more (This discount offer does not apply to our Swiss watches).

Shipping conditions are pretty standard: 7-10 days delivery by express courier.

Customer support is one of the fields Mega Watch really stands out in from of competition. They offer Email, Live chat and phone support. I called their phone number available Monday to Saturday, 8:00AM — Midnight (EST) and a nice lady answered my questions in fluent English. Their Live chat is working and responsive, unlike most of other online store where you can find Live chat banner, but it’s always offline.

CONS:

I submitted not very positive review to one of their products and it wasn’t published. Maybe they saw that email address I used doesn’t match any customer who ordered that item or they just don’t publish negative reviews from customers.

Prices for Panerai and Tag Heuer Replica watches are 10-20% above market average.

Testimonials page is empty, although this store is online since 2013.

All in all, I think Megawatch.cn is a great store with fair return and refund policies, extensive customer support via phone, chat and email. I will update this post with pictures of the watches I’ve bought from them.

Cartier Pasha Chronograph

Cartier is a brand synonymous with luxury. The French jewellery and wristwatch manufacturer is one of the most esteemed names in the luxury goods market, with their products being highly desired throughout the world.

One area of particular excellence is their line of men’s wristwatches, which is home to some of the most breath-taking collections in world today. Featuring gorgeous designs, high quality construction, and plenty of styles to suit anyone, it’s clear why they are such an esteemed watch manufacturer.

For example, the round Pasha de Cartier was first introduced in 1942 and is a timepiece that exudes excellence with every inch, becoming one of the most sought-out watches for collectors and aficionados for its brilliant style and craftsmanship.

Cartier Pasha W31085M7F

The Cartier Pasha W31085M7 is a prime example of this, being a stunning piece that embodies elegance and luxury. A highly versatile piece, it looks amazing for any style from smart to sporty, making it all the more alluring.

The stainless-steel case is a timeless style that works great with the pristine white dial, and this 42mm chronograph really brings a modern design to the classic Pasha de Cartier collection.

As result of this however, there are many fake replicas of this particular wristwatch, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a fake and a genuine Cartier Pasha W31085M7.

Fake Vs Genuine

So how exactly does one determine whether a Cartier Pasha W31085M7 is fake or genuine? Well, there are many signs to be on the lookout for, with some being easier to spot than others.

fake Authentic Cartier Pasha W31085M7 stainless steel

Once it becomes clear what indicates a fake from a genuine W31085M7, it should be simple enough to spot a bad replica.

Inscription

Perhaps the easiest way to tell a genuine Cartier W31085M7 from a fake is the inscription. All genuine Cartier wristwatches has ‘Cartier’ carefully inscribed on the movement found in the back of movement, along with an inscription of the serial number W31085M7.

So, with the W31085M7, remove the caseback to view the inscription etched onto the calibre powering the watch. Additionally, the serial number ‘W31085M7’ can be seen just above the transparent caseback of the watch.

For the most part the majority of replica Cartier W31085M7 replicas will have no inscriptions on the movement. However, there is often fake serial number inscriptions as they are easier to imitate, but the engravings are notably lower in quality and will be barely etched on to the stainless-steel case.

Weight

Another common way to determine a fake Cartier W31085M7 from an authentic is the weight of the watch. This watch, like all other Cartier wristwatches, uses only the best materials to construct the case and calibre, resulting in a fair amount of weight to the piece.

Therefore, if a W31085M7 feels rather light in weight, it could be an indication that it is in fact a fake.

Glass

Again, this is all down to the quality materials used with a genuine watches compared to those used in a Cartier replica. The glass in a genuine W31085M7 is 100% scratch-poof, the same cannot be said for replicas.

Sapphire-quality glass present in the W31085M7 means that it will be near impossible to scratch, making it another easy way to compare a genuine vs fake. Also, the glass is non-smear, so if any water hits the surface and smears instead of rolling off, it’s another sign of it being a fake.

Cabochon

The cabochon of a watch is firmly secured to the crown, and with luxury watches such as those from Cartier, will always feature a polished gemstone. Fakes tend to not have a gemstone fitted to the winder, but some may have poor replicas – they tend to be loosely fitted however, making them easier to spot.

With the Cartier W31085M7, there is a screw down crown set with a blue synthetic sapphire cabochon. Its rather notable thanks to the vibrancy of the blue, and given that the dials are a similar color, it should be quite a clear indicator that the watch is in fact genuine.

Fakes will have no blue sapphire, or at least a poor replica that is glued down, so check how secure the cabochon feels with the W31085M7 if it’s unclear.

Watches are not only some time telling devices. These are high end accessories that define someone’s style and personality. Owning an expensive designer timepiece is a huge fashion statement. It tells everyone that you are successful, stylish and sophisticated. This is why so many people are fascinated by the idea of owning such a beautiful watch. The consequence is that regular people like us opt for buying a replica watch instead, an affordable version of the authentic product.

Timeswisstime.com is an awful looking website. This is my honest opinion. I rarely get to see something as unprofessional and amateur looking as this e-shop. The graphics, images and layout clearly show that this company has nothing to do with high end luxury watches. I mean, I know it sells low priced replicas, but it wouldn’t hurt to pay more attention to its aesthetics. The website looks like something a 5 years-old could draft up in a couple minutes. Still, let’s not be so quick to judge and take a closer look to see how reputable and liable this company really is.

On the homepage we have a small banner at the top with a Tag Heuer Monaco. In the left side of the page there is pretty rich list of available brands, in the right side there are buttons for the informative pages and in the center of the page there is a big chunk of text followed by many sponsored products. The whole thing looks difficult to browse and unfriendly. It is the kind of page you usually bounce off in a few seconds.

The website has a very wide selection of brands and for every brand there are a couple hundred items available. These are organized into collections and sub-collections which makes browsing a lot easier. Still, even in this case you have to go through 5-10 pages to get to view the entire sub-collection. This is why I think that an Advanced Search option would have made things a lot easier.

The most interesting thing about this e-store is that despite its amateur appearance, it mostly sells Swiss made replica watches. A part of its collection includes Japanese timepieces, but the dominant niche is clearly represented by fake timepieces equipped with 25 jewels Swiss ETA automatic movement. These watches cost between $350 and $500 whereas the Japanese ones are about $200-$350. From my point of view, these prices are a little bit high, considerably more than what your average fake watches store asks for a knockoff.

I do not trust the photos posted on this website. The thing that makes me doubt the authenticity of the pictures is the fact that the watches are photographed over a white paper that says that_watch_guy@gmail.com when the company’s email addresses are that_watch_guy@hotmail.com and tswisswatch@gmail.com. Wait, there’s more. Other watches are photographed over a black or gray background. I honestly think that the merchant has copied these images from other websites and that these do not belong to him. This means that when ordering something from this store we could very well receive a watch that looks totally different than what is displayed in the photos.

Even though I am convinced that these images are not of the merchandise that Timeswisstime.com sells out of curiosity I took a photo of one of its replica Omega Speedmaster and compared it to a photo of the authentic watch. The result was that there are some significant cosmetic differences. The first one is in the small dials. These do not have that 3D construction. The center of the subdial should be lower than the margins. The date window is also different. It should have a black background with clear white numbers. The replica has a black background with gray digits that are hard to read. The pushers and the winding crown are not as round and elegant as the one of the authentic timepiece. Furthermore, the stainless steel is poorly polished on the knockoff.

I find the payment process implemented on this e-shop as highly unusual and unsecure. You do not place the order and fill in the payment information directly on the website. For ordering a product, you first need to select a model, after this to send an email to the company with that product and your shipping information so they can place the order and send you an email with the link where you can enter your payment details. I honestly do not understand why there isn’t a normal “Buy Now” button so you can securely order the product online. Also, they claim to accept Visa, Mastercard, Western Union and Bank Wire payments.

Timeswisstime.com doesn’t list its shipping prices and does not give that many details about its delivery policy. It only states that the shipping fee is included in the price of the watch and that the packages are shipped with Express Mail. Usually, this means a 10-14 business days delivery with a tracking number that is updated very slowly.

I totally dislike the fact that the company cannot be contacted by live chat or phone. The only way of getting a hold of its agents is to send an email to that_watch_guy@hotmail.com or tswisswatch@gmail.com. Both of these email addresses are very unprofessional and unreliable. Any decent online replica merchant should have a company email address that starts with “contact@” or “sales@”.

The return policy of this merchant is highly unfair. It seems that you cannot return the watch in case you are not satisfied with it. The only accepted return reasons are if the replica is defective. In this case, they will replace it or repair it. Of course, all the return shipping costs must be paid by the customer.

Timeswisstime.com is an online fake watches store that raises many questions. It advertises itself as a high end Swiss seller, but the facts suggest a completely different story. The design of the website is very unprofessional, the pictures do not seem to be of its actual merchandise, the ordering process is unreliable and unsecure, you cannot return the watch if you do not like it and the customer service is non-responsive.

If you are reading this then you are surely one of us, one of those who are passionate about luxury watches. The problem with these beautiful designer timepieces is that they have an exaggerated price. Not everyone can afford to spend a fortune on a Rolex. Luckily for us, there is the option of buying a replica instead. The thing you should consider here is the quality and accuracy of the design. If you have enough patience and knowledge about the original product then you can browse the web until you find the perfect replica for you.

Watchesforever.cn is one of those websites that attempt to convince us that its knockoffs are the best fakes out there. Unfortunately, its website doesn’t inspire the same message. The problem with it is that it is poorly made and it shows a huge lack of attention to important details. I am saying this because the background has Christmas as main theme. And it’s May already! The page is decorated with holiday gifts and socks. Moving on, there are two menu bars. One is on the top part of the page and it features buttons only for the main brands and the second one is on the left side of the page and it displays all the available company names. In the center of the page there are 3 sliding banners and below a few sponsored products.

The company has a pretty large collection of replica watches. It features numerous famous brands and every single one of them has a couple hundred different items. The very interesting thing is that there are even some categories with over 1000 products, like Omega or Patek Philippe. What I have noticed and can’t understand yet is why this website does not have Rolex watches in its collection. Rolex is one of the most popular timepieces in the world and not offering this brand is something unusual. The majority of online replica stores carry this company.

The brands are organized into sub-collections which is a real help for us when we are looking for a specific model. Another great thing is the price filter included in the lower left side of the page. This can be used to filter the items and display just the one that meets our budget. Speaking of our budget, these fake timepieces are quite affordable. All the prices are in USD and vary depending on the complexity of the design and the materials used for manufacturing it. There are some models that start at $100 and some that cost about $300. Most of the models are equipped with a 21 jewels Asian movement while others have a quartz movement. I did not see any Swiss movement watches on this website.

It is important for an online company to offer good quality pictures that provide a preview of the quality you will be receiving if you order them. Sadly, this store does not seem to have this type of images. The photos posted here are clearly copied from a couple different catalogs. Indeed, they show the products from several different angles, but the truth is that you can’t trust them. Especially if you consider the fact that the pictures have the watermark of a different company Watchjust.com

Curious to see if the replica watches are authentic looking I have compared an authentic Omega Speedmaster with a replica. Unfortunately there are too many aesthetic differences to consider that these knockoffs are decent quality. The dial is the main issue. Here we notice that the writing at 12 o’clock is different. Instead of saying “Omega Speedmaster Professional” it says “Omega Speedmaster Automatic Chronometer”. Another issue is with the sub-dials these do not correspond to the original ones which are lower in the middle part and raised on the margins. The fake one has plain sub-dials. The bezel is also different. The indexes and letters on it are thicker than on the genuine model.

Watchesforever.cn has the huge advantage of delivering packages worldwide. There is a flat shipping fee applied for shipping. Regardless of the delivery country or weight of the package, the shipping fee is $20 per order. Most packages are dispatched by EMS and the estimated delivery time is about 10-14 business days.

There are only two accepted payment options, Visa and Mastercard which is actually quite disappointing. No one argues the popularity and liability of these two card types, but sometimes it is nice to know that you have alternatives, especially if you are the kind of person who doesn’t want to put his card details out there. Another worrisome aspect is the fact that the payment processing page isn’t secure. Basically, anyone can hack the page and access your details fraudulently.

The company does provide a return policy, but its conditions are not that fair for us, the customers. The main issue is that there is a restocking fee which applies to all returns. If you want to send the watch back for a refund then you need to pay a $20-$40 fee whereas for exchanges there is a $10-$20 fee. Furthermore, the customer pays all the shipping back fees. In the end, you will be paying more to return the product than to buy a new one.

As far as customer service goes, don’t get your hopes up. This store isn’t the type that provides professional customer care. It does not have a contact phone number and a live chat. It just includes a Contact Form on its page and a Gmail account. I find the latter option as very insecure and unprofessional. All decent e-shops should have a professional business address where customer can send securely their inquiries.

Watchesforever.cn isn’t the ideal source for buying replica watches that will last forever. Just like any other fake timepieces website, it carries a wide selection of knockoffs at low prices, but there are other aspects that discourage us from buying its products. And these are: the unreliable product pictures, the limited selection of payment methods.
