Different Kinds of Replica Watches

Aug 27, 2008
There is much to consider when deciding on a watch. A watch is just something worn around the wrist that can accurately keep time. In times past, watches were predominately kept in the pocket particularly doing the early half of the twentieth century. Not all watches are created equal even though the primary functions stay the same.

A watch crafted from precious metals such as gold and silver will cost you more than a plastic based watch. What the watch runs on is also a factor you should consider when choosing a watch. Not all watches are made just to keep time either. Optional watch functions may include the date, an alarm, calendars and times in other parts of the world.

Everything mentioned above applies to replica watches which are just imitations of other brands. A platinum Rolex can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars but a replica molded after that same watch can be found under one hundred dollars. Even though the look and function is the same the replica brands generally aren't made using precious metals. Even though a watch may be a replica, that doesn't mean that the quality is any lower than any other watch. Here are a few types of watches with a little information as to how each one functions.

Kinetic Replica watches
Some of the more advanced replica watches utilize kinetic energy to run on. There's no battery contained in Kinetic replica watches at all. The need to replace batteries and the winding of the watch are completely absent. It is simply run by using the energy exerted by the person who wears it. An electrical charge is then created to power the watch. As long as the person continues to move, the watch will continue to function. Energy is stored up into the watch from previous uses which allows the watch to function for a period of time when energy isn't being created.

Analog Replica watches
An analog based watch is a watch that uses the "hand system". The three hands are used to keep track of the minute, hour and second. The positions of the hands, in accord with the numbers on the watch are factored in to determine the time. These kinds of replica watches are the most commonly used watches on earth.

LCD Replica watches
LCD, short for liquid crystal display is another type of watch that displays the time without using the hands method. This battery or electrical operated way shows the time in the form numbers. The display is similar to a microwave's display. Both use the same LCD technology. Instead of having to determine the time based on the position of the hands, the time is just shown in numeric form. An example would be 3:25, where the three is the hour and the twenty five is the minute.

Quartz Replica watches
This particular watch is vastly different from the rest and its invention was a modern breakthrough in the way we view time. Just as the name suggest, quartz replica watches are replica watches that measure the time by using a thin amount of quartz crystal. The quartz vibrates rapidly when given an electric charge. The vibration emitted enables the watch to keep time. It has been discovered that the quartz based replica watches are slightly more accurate than other forms.
