The Real & The Dupe : Timepieces

The watch above is 2.5 million dollars.It is the Patek Phillipe Grandmaster Chime which is described as ” visionary triumph, as pleasing to the ear as to the eye, and a truly melodious companion.”

Though I do not have the wealth to acquire it (I feel like using the word “buy” is crude to Patek Phillipe lol) I have compiled a list of good watches that are quite attainable.

THE LADY LIKE – Rectangular Face

Left- Patek Phillipe $6 000                                              Right- Seiko $146

For the ultimate in elegance and femininity – nothing beats a rectangular watch with a gold face  and delicate leather strap.


Left- Cartier $33 400                                                                  Right- Michael Kors $226

Of all the metals in watch-making – gold is the most captivating. It really does make its presence known and seen.This was the hardest dupe to find . I suppose nothing can quite compare to the iconic Ballon Bleu watch – even the Duchess of Cambridge religiously wears it. However there’s a Michael Kors (which is impossible to find ) that is valiantly making an effort to be quite like it.

THE FASHION GIRL – Circular and Mesh

Left- Larsson & Jennings $315                                          Right- Daniel Wellington $179

The mesh watch is generally an inexpensive watch and a current favourite of the times favoured by fashion girls as you can wear multiple bracelets and rings with out spoiling the aesthetic.


Left- Tag Heuer $ 3 795                                                        Right- Michael Kors $187

The metal that can go with absolutely anything , achieve any desired look be it sporty or chic and still dressy is silver. Period. Here i have the iconic Carrera watch by Tag Heuer which is on of my favourite watches. For dupe purposes you can rely on Mr Kors. He has got you. Always.


Left- Rolex $6 995                                                                         Right- Timex $57

There’s something very rich about a two-tone watch that looks like you inherited it as an heirloom.The old age feel just makes it one of the most luxurious watch styles to own. If this is not a steal I wonder what is?


I hope you have found this post helpful as  did enjoy writing it myself. Tell me in the comments what your favourite watch style is . I would love to know..

Timepiece Blessings,

The Fofafist
