Rare Replica Watches online auction highlights

Fake Rolex Ref. 1665 Sea-Dweller, with ‘Qaboos’ dial, made for the Sultan of Oman. Circa 1973.

This exceedingly rare museum-worthy copy wristwatch is probably the finest example ever to be offered at auction, from the ultra-crisp angles, finishes and inscriptions of the case to the untouched, naturally age-patinaed bezel insert.

The perfect replica Rolex‘s dial features the bright red signature of His Majesty Qaboos Bin Said, combined with tritium indexes which have developed a rich deep sand-coloured patina.

One of the most interesting aspects of luxury Rolex fake watches made for the Sultan of Oman in the 1970s is that the dials were specially designed only for the Omani models; for example the characteristic inscriptions for depth rating and ‘Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified’ of the standard 1665s 1:1 replica Rolex Sea-Dweller of the period were removed to spotlight the red Qaboos signature.

One of only four known examples of its type, this stainless steel aaa super clone Rolex Ref. 6263 Cosmograph Daytona, retailed by Asprey, not only bears the signature of the Sultan of Oman in red on the dial, however also features a case that is engraved inside with the serial number and a caseback engraved with the signature of Asprey.

Made in 1974, it’s an example of a copy watch presented by the Sultan himself and as such it has always been highly prized by its owners and therefore rarely worn.
