“It’s OK if a man wants to wear a small fake watch. It doesn’t mean anything more than that,” laughs Zoë Kravitz when we broach the topic of men like Tyler, the Creator, Bad Bunny and Michael B Jordan wearing ladies’ watches at the launch of perfect replica Omega’s new Aqua Terra collection. “And Big Watch Energy?” she says on the roles being reversed and women rocking men’s watches, “I’m into it!”
When you think about gender fluidity, the luxury copy watch industry probably isn’t where your mind first takes you. But in the past 12 months, what size watch a man or woman chooses to wear is certainly becoming more interesting. Watch lovers are realising that tiny vintage flexes from brands like Cartier and Piaget look dope on the smaller wrists of cool celebrities, and it’s opening up internal thoughts about how small one could go.
It’s a conversation that Eddie Redmayne has faced himself. “It’s all proportionate. Despite my best efforts to go to the gym and have massive forearms, I’m not sure I can pull off a Daniel Craig style, watch” he jokes. “So, I’ve always preferred the proportionately scaled watches, and that’s one of the reasons I love this new 1:1 replica Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra range, it instantly felt like a good fit.
“My wife loves wearing the men’s luxury replica watches, too,” he adds. “She loves wearing them as a piece of jewellery, like a sort of a bangle almost. And I’m like, “can we share watches?” I have one of the [MoonSwatch] fake watches online (the white and red Mission to Mars), and my wife nicks that occasionally, too,” he jokes.
The Good Nurse actor digs the Swiss movement fake Omega Aqua Terra’s classic shape and the vibrancy and punch such colours gives your wrist. Within the range, there are six new 38mm pieces including Redmayne’s favourite in Terracotta as well as a bling Sedna Gold version with 46 diamonds around the bezel and sandstone dial.
There are also six 34mm pieces – five steel in colours like shell pink and lavender – and a Moonshine Gold version on a blue leather strap, which Kravitz is a fan of. For your average watch buyer, size and colour are invariably the two biggest considerations – which is why Gregory Kissling – the brains behind so many AAA quality replica Omega designs – is so happy with these new Aqua Terra Seamasters. “
This high quality fake Omega is more like a unisex model,” Kissling says. “For the bracelet, we wanted to give a more feminine look because in previous generations it was just a reduction of the size so it’s a big step for the ladies segment but it’s also more competent,” he adds. And while he doesn’t anticipate flocks of men buying the smaller 34mm size, he’s pleased that the options are available should men want to size down or women size up.
Big or small? Sandstone, terracotta or lavender? Like the rest of us, seems like Zoë Kravitz is already into all supe clone watch energies.
