For over a century, Rolex, the globally acclaimed watch manufacturer and renowned luxury brand, has been crafting imitation timepieces. Throughout its extensive history, Rolex has introduced numerous models and a myriad of references, ranging from utilitarian replica watches such as the anti-magnetic Milgauss to elegant dress watches like the Cellini King Midas.
Almost anything adorned with a Swiss imitation Rolex emblem is highly coveted. However, not all replica Rolexes are created equal. Certain models and references possess a natural allure that sets them apart. Even within references, there exists a hierarchy of collectability that ignites the passion of dedicated luxury replica Rolex enthusiasts, who are plentiful in number.
Given the current scarcity of new top-tier 1:1 imitation Rolexes, enthusiasts are increasingly turning to vintage or discontinued references of popular AAA quality replica Rolex watches to fulfill their desire for a ‘Rollie.’ This trend prompts the question: which references should an aspiring or seasoned owner of affordable fake Rolexes consider when seeking the Crown’s most sought-after models?
To address this query, we consulted with Paul Altieri, the founder and CEO of Bob’s Watches – a leading online watch exchange and a reputable authority on perfect replica Rolex watches in the UK. Altieri shared his insights on the best references for three of Swiss-made imitation Rolex’s most iconic models.
Let’s start with the Swiss movement replica Rolex Submariner, arguably the most renowned model from top-tier fake Rolex and, in many respects, the quintessential wristwatch. Launched in 1953, it stood as one of the pioneer modern wholesale replica dive watches online and continues to be among the most sought-after dive watches in the market. Despite being surpassed technically by watches like the best quality copy Rolex Sea-Dweller or modern dive computers, its popularity endures.
According to Altieri, the reference to focus on collecting is the Swiss copy Rolex ref. 14060/14060M, described as “the last of the best” in his insightful article. Manufactured approximately between 1990 and 2010, these replica watches for sale in the UK occupy a sweet spot, making them ideal for everyday wear and a compelling investment or collection opportunity.
In a nutshell, Altieri’s article highlights that newer UK super clone Rolex Submariner references have a bulkier profile to align with the contemporary preference for larger copy watch sizes. Their Cerachrom bezels, unlike the aluminum ones on older references, won’t age and develop a patina. On the flip side, truly vintage fake watches for men lack many modern conveniences found in later references, such as sapphire crystal glass, unidirectional bezels, and advancements in movement technology.
