Hand up. I am the one billing these two as “Sport Icons” in this story’s title. Want to get mad at someone in the comments? Come at me. I am sticking by the billing.
In the metal and on my wrist, these two luxury US replica Rolex watches represent exactly what 1970s Rolex is all about.
Let’s start with the 1:1 top fake Rolex Explorer ref. 1016 watches. If you come here often, by now you should know I love the Explorer and, of course, the 1016 is the best version of the model best Swiss Rolex replica watches has ever made (sorry, Danny). The example we have here hails from the first few years of matte-dial production with a “frog’s foot” coronet – one of my favorite possible details on a 1016. This style of Rolex logo is shared with the Explorer II “Freccione” ref. 1655; Explorers only for the vintage frog’s foot. The lume on this Swiss movements Rolex copy watches has a great warm patina to it – I even love the specific “flaw” that is the uneven aging on the 12 o’clock marker. It has this great “Harvey Dent as Two-Face” look to it that I am really drawn to.
What collectors from Sid Mashburn to Fred Savage always seem to call out about the 1016 is the simplicity of the replica Rolex watches for sale. It speaks to many as it is the distilled version of Oyster-cased, Tritium-lumed, Oyster-bracelet vintage Rolex – it has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Putting that appeal next to a ref. 1665 Rolex Sea-Dweller fake watches for men shows off the complete range of vintage sport models from the Crown. If the lure of the Explorer is simplicity, the “Double Red” draws admirers with its technical grandeur.
Holding a “Double Red” Sea-Dweller, or DRSD, in my hand, it takes little imagination to understand why many vintage Rolex enthusiasts consider this a grail. In a similar manner that the Explorer represents a purpose-designed super clone Rolex watches online store for the average Joe, I immediately understand how serious the DRSD is. The helium escape valve cut into the nine o’clock side of the thicker case, the deeper depth rating, and the stern of the red text color – this all comes together to exude a level of professionalism. Rolex replica watches site has always marketed professional use of their watches but, to me, the high quality fake Rolex Sea-Dweller watches is really the only one that lives up to that billing on the wrist.
Of course, we wouldn’t just have any old DRSD here. This model is seriously rare – we see more “Paul Newman” Daytonas than Double Reds – but that doesn’t mean only an average condition example has made its way into the Shop. Rather, the one we have here has a strong case, creamy lume patina, box, papers, receipt, and even a certificate from Beyer that’s been signed by René Beyer himself which speaks to the authenticity of this AAA wholesale Rolex replica watches, as well as the full set.
