This is one that, to be frank, I wasn’t sure there were many people on the other side of. Yet who do you reckon I found other than Jack Forster, ready to throw down with a contrarian view.
The question before us is a very simple one: What is it that makes a watch with an integrated bracelet? As a rational person who has looked at many best UK replica watches and finds comfort in useful, crystalline definitions, I have taken the position that a watch with an integrated bracelet will not accept standard aftermarket bracelets and straps. Such is their specific compatibility of lugs and bracelets that they are sui generis. Unique, so to speak.
Such 1:1 perfect fake watches‘ bracelets are made specifically for the watch head they fit, and trying to cram something simple and ubiquitous onto them like, say, a standard leather watch strap from the Shop, is simply out of the question.
I’m thinking of the most obvious and famous watches of this type. The Royal Oak, the Nautilus, the Overseas – Swiss made replica watches that everyone agrees have integrated bracelets. Taking an approach governed by aesthetics, my sparring partner believes that it’s the design that integrates the bracelet and the luxury copy watches. I think Jack’s definition is insufficiently specific.
To accept Jack’s side of the argument – that it’s merely design that unites a watch with an integrated bracelet – is, if you think about it, to say that any watch with an aesthetically well-matched bracelet is “integrated.” And this, if you zoom in further, is close to saying that any watch on a bracelet with end links neatly closing in the gap between case and bracelet is integrated. This renders the term “integrated bracelet” useless, more or less, and would put the vast majority of the totality of replica watches for sale on the market featuring OEM bracelets in the box we are currently trying to define.
The vast majority of truly integrated bracelet fake watches online store follow a template that you, dear H reader, already know very well. Their bracelets have large central links that interact directly with the case lugs, which are generally closer together than they would be on a typical watch head. In the case of cheap replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches, there are two inner links.
The lugs themselves are often thick enough to make the prospect of attaching a standard aftermarket strap feel really odd, assuming you could find such a narrow strap and matching spring bars. When straps are fitted onto such AAA super clone watches, they almost universally need to come from the watch manufacturer itself. They will feature either one end link to intersect with the case directly and a strap wrapping around the end link, or they will feature a very specific shape in which the strap dives between the narrowly spaced lugs before splashing outward to encompass them, preserving the neat integrity of the overall appearance of the watch.
Some Swiss movements replica watches models indeed have aftermarket solutions, but they are tailored to specific watch models, and are not intended for anything like universal application by lug width.
As the category of high quality fake watches featuring truly integrated bracelets has grown to become one of the most popular and discussed today, let’s make sure that we know what we mean when we use the term “integrated bracelet.”
