Let’s begin by stating the patently obvious: A. Lange & Söhne fake watches UK have had a very good year. At the top end, collectors have raved about the Grand Lange One Moonphase Lumen, as well as the Richard Lange Jumping Seconds. And for those whose pocketbooks have earthly limitations – the new Saxonia Thin presents a very tempting offering.
For me though, the sweet spot lies somewhere in the middle. The Saxonia Moonphase offers you the undeniable style of the Saxonia family, but adds some classic Lange complications to the mix – the big date and that oh-so-stunning moonphase. And the star of the show, is in fact the 852 stars on the said moonphase. It’s simply stunning; traditional without being a cartoonish smiling moon, yet thoroughly modern in its laser-cut technique. And it’s accurate to 122.6 years too. Of course the counterpoint to the moon is the date. Lange’s iconic big date apertures at the top of the dial perfectly balance out the bottom, creating an evenly spaced, elegant dial that we challenge you not to fall in love with.

The proportional elegance continues on the case, which comes in either pink or white gold. It’s 40mm wide and 9.8mm high A. Lange & Söhne replica watches, which is quite slender for an automatic movement with a moonphase sitting on top.
40mm is quite a safe size for this watch (personally I think it’s the perfect size) – smaller and you alienate the big watch guys, larger and you risk upsetting the dress watch purists who, let’s be honest, are a pretty key demographic for the Saxonia line. There’s a pusher at 10 that advances the date and a recessed button at four which adjusts the moonphase.

The L086.5 movement A. Lange & Söhne replica watches are just what you’d expect from Lange. Flawless. The rotor is partially skeletonised so as not to obscure the German silver bridges, and the signature balance cock is as gorgeous as ever. Power reserve is impressive at three days, especially given that the big date is a bit of an energy hog. The automatic lacks some of the traditional charms of the hand winders, but it more than makes up for it in convenience.
Publish two new versions
The Citizen Signature line slowly transitioned from relatively high-end quartz Citizen replica watches to mechanical offerings that are more affordable than the highest end Campanola line from the Japanese watchmaker. “Casually-dressy” could be used to describe the collection, as the watches show some refinement and qualities that aren’t present in most Citizen watches. These pieces hover around the $1,000 mark and they’re nice enough to wear with a suit but won’t drive you crazy if you scratch them a little or wear them out socially. Here are two new pieces, the Citizen Signature Octavia Automatic watches on a steel bracelet as well as a rubber and steel bracelet. With a polarizing dial cutout revealing the balance wheel, the watch is distinctly Japanese in style and execution.
Special named for the watches
Named for their eight sided bezels, the Citizen Octavia collection copy watches up to this point includes both men’s and women’s models and has been thus far powered by Citizen’s excellent Eco-Drive quartz calibers. The new Signature Collection Octavia, powered by Citizen’s own automatic winding caliber 9040, represents a step up for the growing collection. Additional refinements do not stop with the movement. The new Signature Collection Octavia also presents a new larger case with a 44mm width as well as a black ion coated, engraved bezel on the black dialed, rubber strap variant. The other version features a two tone color scheme with gold plated portions contrasting with stainless steel throughout the case, bezel, and bracelet. Case finishing is also up a notch or two compared to many Citizens. In particular, the lugs, case sides, and crown guards on the new Octavia Automatic are neatly beveled and make use of alternating brushing and polishing finishing techniques.

Additional finishing like what we’re seeing here as well as the inclusion of an automatic movement indicate Citizen’s very intentional luxury design concept. The new case size, while larger than its predecessors, should still fit the majority of watch wearers and is in keeping with the lingering large watch movement. Above the dial, I’m pleasantly surprised to see an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Case back duties are handled by a mineral crystal exhibition case back, which shows off the new 42 hour power reserve caliber oscillating within.
About the dial
I really like the dials on the new Citizen Signature Collection Automatic men’s fake watches. Both are black with applied indices and Citizen signatures. The rubber-strap version has silver colored outlines for the hour markers with a sharp red seconds hand, while the two tone predictably has indices outlined in gold with a more demure seconds hand. Hour markers also feature a reasonable helping of lume as do the excellent hands including the second hand which has a tip outlined in red. There is a lot to like here and the dial as well as the brushed bezel look and feel quite high-end especially when one considers the $1,000-ish price point. It would be tough to get all this from one of the Swiss brands. In that same vein, though, there are some distinctly Japanese design elements that I am personally just not a fan of.
