We seem to love giving nicknames to luxury replica watches and color schemes where possible. I mean, it makes sense — it’s easier to remember the Rolex Pepsi GMT rather than perfect fake Rolex GMT-Master II 126710BLRO watches. Some of the nicknames make sense and are logical. Other’s are a bit tenuous at best. One such nickname which perfectly fits the use is the classic “panda dials”. These dials became incredibly popular during the late 1950s and 1960s, and their popularity hasn’t waned since.
I don’t feel it really needs too much explaining. A white (or perhaps off-white) dial with black subdials. It’s quite an obvious homage to the most famous of all panda bears, the giant panda. Over the years, this dial setup has become iconic and is a timeless classic. If you think of any of the top brands in the industry, they’re likely to have at least a couple of panda dialed Swiss movements fake watches in their archives.
Fake Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI 35th Anniversary Watches
I have to start with a Speedy, really, don’t I. After having spent the last couple of weeks with one of RJ’s Speedmasters on my wrist, I’ve really been bitten by the bug. Swiss made Omega replica watches is no stranger to a panda dial and has released a few different variations over the years. Still, my favorite is the Apollo XI 35th Anniversary, released in 2004. I have a fantastic 1:1 AAA fake Omega #SpeedyTuesday watches poster in my home office. It has 62 different Speedmaster models on it, in order of release. I love looking at it, but my eyes are often drawn to this model. It has such a clean and classy dial, and it replica watches for sale like this that really make it clear why panda dials became so goddamn popular.
Released as a limited edition of 3,500 pieces in 2004, the gorgeous panda dial isn’t what makes the Speedmaster Apollo XI 35th Anniversary so special either, even if it certainly helps! The attraction, for me, is that this model was only the first widely available panda dialed high quality replica Omega Speedmaster watches ever released. Admittedly, top Swiss made Omega fake watches made 300 similar copy watches wholesale back in 2003 for a Japanese department store called Mitsukoshi. Still, the Apollo XI 35th Anniversary was the first time this dial combination was available worldwide. Oddly enough, the brand has never circled back round to the panda theme either, despite the fanbase clamoring for a bit of black on white.
Rolex Daytona Replica Watches
It’d be hard to write a list of top panda dials and NOT include vintage best replica Rolex Daytona watches. I have a bit of a mixed opinion about cheap Rolex fake watches as a brand. Still, even I cannot deny how downright sexy the vintage Daytonas were. Rolex replica watches for men and women released the first official Daytona in 1963, the Cosmograph Reference 6239, in a “reverse panda” dial configuration with a steel bezel. It was the first knockoff Rolex watches store wholesale chronograph to feature the “Daytona” moniker on the dial. The Crown made a few different versions of the panda dial Daytona in the 60s and 70s, with different bezel material and dial designs. It’s tough to pick a single victor here, so I have narrowed it down to two. The “Paul Newman” Daytona and the Reference 6240.
The Paul Newman panda
The name “Paul Newman” has practically become folklore when it comes to the world of vintage best quality replica Rolex Daytona watches. It’s very easy to get confused by the multitude of reference numbers and the addition of the Newman name. Paul Newman’s name usually refers to the dial, an “exotic” art-deco-inspired panda dial variant rather than the standard dial. Paul was always seen wearing it, and it kind of became his trademark of sorts. It’s not uncommon to see various reference numbers with the Newman name attached. However, if we’re talking about “The Paul Newman Daytona”, the one that sold for $17.8m at Phillips auction house in 2017. In that case, that is a reference 6239 with the art-deco panda dial and a classy steel bezel, and simple pump pushers. It was a gift from his wife, and what a gift it was!
Released in 1965, the 6240 was the successor to the 6239. It marked the introduction of the screw-down pushers, offering water resistance not found on its predecessor. That said, it wasn’t until 1967 was considered fully waterproof, and the word “Oyster” was added to the dial. The 6240 also moved away from the steel bezel and featured a black acrylic inlay instead. Possibly my favorite thing about the 6240, though, is the stunning silver sunburst dial. Combined with the black subdials, this is one heck of Swiss best replica watches. It’s not hard to see why these CA super clone watches online have become so collectible — this kind of style never goes out of fashion.
