The best uk fake Longines DolceVita Automatic is priced at S$2,390.
For a good part of its life, the DolceVita collection was predominantly powered by quartz movement. This was because the intention of the collection was to focus more on the design aspect, which had undoubtedly been wildly successful for the brand for the last couple of decades.
In this year’s launch, there was a paradigm shift in the focus of the collection. Predominantly, Longines had introduced a few new DolceVita models that were different from the usual – they are much larger in size (to cater to the gentlemen), and they are fitted with an automatic movement. So, how does the new DolceVita stack up?
The Case, Dial, and Hands
The new Swiss movement replica Longines DolceVita faithfully follows its brethren in the collection, with its long swooping rectangular case that features sensuous curves at the side. The curves provide a nice touch of elegance to the watch, and it also reiterates the Art-Deco theme of this piece (which we will go further into detail as we discuss about the dial).
Notably, the watch is available in two sizes – 27.7mm x 43.8mm (Reference L5.7126.96.36.199) and 28.2mm x 47.0mm (Reference L5.7188.8.131.52). We have had the opportunity to try out both different case variants, and personally, we prefer the former with the smaller case. Even though the difference is seemingly minute (with just a mere few millimetres), we feel that the smaller piece fits more snugly on the wrist. Perhaps, the larger case variant will work for someone that has a larger wrist, as the author here has a relatively thinner wrist that is around 6.5 inches in circumference.
Due to the nature of the watch, it works rather well with formal wear. The author had the chance to wear it to work for a couple of weeks, and the classy watch did receive quite a fair bit of compliments from his colleagues. It is simple, but with the slightly unusual rectangular case, it positions itself within the sweet spot of being subtle and yet interesting enough to warrant some positive attention.
Moving on, we have one of the highlights of the piece – the dial.
For this particular piece, top quality copy Longines had decided to incorporate the theme of Art Deco into this watch. The main component lies in the sector dial, in which it distinctively divides the dial into two sectors (or three, if you have the eye for details). The distinguishing bit is the silver “sector” that houses the minute track and hour indices, which is brush-finished. It is complemented with an white or cream-ish (depending on lighting) inner dial. The latter also pays tribute to the classic watches with the cross-hair dial, which is making a comeback with the more vintage-inspired pieces.
As for the hands, Longines had opted for the blued sword hands. It is simple, but it lends some contrast to the neutral-coloured watch. Together with the dial, the entire package is rather legible. We think it works well too, and altogether, it combines both form and functionality. It is perhaps one of the best iterations within the DolceVita collection.
The Movement: Calibre L592
Powering the black leather strap fake watch is the Calibre L592, a self-winding movement that is based on the ETA A20.L01. The movement beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour, and it has a power reserve of around 45 hours.
Aside from its time-keeping functions, the watch also has an additional date display. This is found at the 6 o’clock position of the watch. Other than that, it is a simple three-hand watch without any excessive complications.
We have note that the watch is fitted with a solid case back, and hence we are unable to ascertain the level of finishing on the movement. We do believe that we can expect some basic finishing techniques being applied, although we reckon it should not go beyond the typical “industrial” type of finishing that is accorded to most AAA quality replica watches of this price point.
