At some point everyone wants a super clone Rolex. It is a name that has transcended the world of luxury replica watches to become a mark of achievement and an appreciation for craftsmanship. Unfortunatly this means long lines and high prices. The average price for a new Rolex sport model like the Submariner or Explorer II is a rounding error away from $10,000, and more everyday best 1:1 fake watches like the Oyster Perpetual and Datejust quickly surpass the $7,000 mark. That is, of course, if you can find anything inside a dealer’s showroom that isn’t just for display only. The after-market has responded to this lack of availability by increasing the prices for any copy watch you can take home that same day.
The good news is a perfect replica Rolex never goes out of style, so if you are willing to do a little hunting you can find pre-owned models that are not only under that $10,000 mark but occasionally have plenty of room to spare. Even if they have a few years on them, they still can go toe-to-toe with a brand new one when it comes to timeless good looks and reliability.
Fake Rolex Explorer II Ref. 16570
The black dial version of the cheap fake Rolex Explorer 16570 is a solid option, but the polar white has always been the more popular, and thus slightly more expensive model. This 16750 from 1997 is the last year tritium dials were commonly available from any Swiss watchmaker, with LumiNova coming out the next year, and Super-LumiNova following two years later. With this being the youngest possible tritium dial it has yet to age like its vintage cousin, the lume plots and hands are still bright white, a perfect match to the dial. As this copy watch remains in your collection those hands and markers will slowly turn to a creamy off-white, and then to the yellow that can only be found when time has given its slow and unyielding touch to a watch. Overall this piece is in excellent pre-owned condition, there are a few scratches to the steel bezel, but nothing that will get in the way of enjoying this classic.
Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual Ref. 116000
The AAA quality replica Rolex Explorer is essentially an Oyster Perpetual with a specific numeral combination and the signature Mercedes hands, and always in black. If you prefer the look of an Explorer, but with a different color, then for many years the Swiss movement fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual came in the same 36mm size and dial combination, just with a slightly different set of hands. A small sacrifice to be able to get some blue on the dial, and those baton hands are easy to love in their own right. Coming from the previous generation of OPs, this high quality fake Rolex 116000 is in excellent condition and ready to compete with your friend’s Explorer but try not to gloat about how much less you paid for yours.
