When talking about branded replica watches, we normally pay more attentions to the case, bracelet, dial, and material of a fake Rolex watch, the crystal protecting the face also adds its own flair. Whether your Rolex watch has an acrylic (plastic) crystal or a sapphire crystal, it depends on the era. If you have no idea about which one you have, read on to find out the differences between acrylic and sapphire to see what crystal your replica Rolex watch has.
Vintage Rolex watches consist of acrylic crystals on them and while many may assume that sapphire crystal is naturally much better, and the plastic glass has its benefits too. To begin with, some vintage Rolex watch collectors simply like the look of acrylic over sapphire. Acrylic is less shiny and lends a cool retro vibe to the watch. In terms of practicality, acrylic does get scratched quite easily, but it’s also simple to buff out the scratches in several minutes using polishing pastes. The good news is that acrylic is durable and quite resilient to breaking. Besides, if it does break, it does so in a clean manner rather than shattering. Another advantage of acrylic is that it is rather cheaper to replace than sapphire.
Synthetic sapphire crystal has a much sleeker look and provides superb transparency to view the dial. What’s more, since sapphire ranks so high on the Mohs’ scale of mineral hardness, it is much more scratch resistant—a great bonus for watch wearers. However, because of its hardness, sapphire will also shatter or chip if hit at certain angles. If this happens, not only does the watch need a new costly sapphire crystal replacement, the movement also needs to be looked at to see if any shards landed in there.
Rolex then equipped sapphire crystal again on the Rolex Date replica model and the Rolex Datejust model. While these two watches shared the same angular case shape and integrated bracelet as Rolex’s quartz watches, they were actually automatic watches. When Rolex launched the Oysterquartz collection powered by in-house quartz movements in 1977, sapphire crystal was used again.
In the end, in the early 1980s, Rolex used sapphire crystals on the Submariner replica watch and actually began equipping all their watches with it. In summary, to see what crystal your Rolex watch has, you can either examine how it looks or find out the date of the watch.
In 1956, the Rolex was one of the most complex replica watches in the Rolex lineup when it was first debuted in 1956. The movement was different from any other Rolex timepiece on the market, while it was powered by the fake Rolex’s already famous automatic winding technology. It was developed to include both a day and date wheel. The impressive Day-Date movement set a better standard in watch-making, leading to even more creative timepieces over the course of the next decades.
Rolex improved the bar again in the late 1990’s with the release of the President Day-Date ref. 18238. Just like its predecessors, this model characterized the now-iconic day and date apertures on its dial together with a gorgeous yellow gold finish. However, there was a newly designed calibre 3155 perpetual movement within its case developed by the luxury Rolex replica to include a Double Quickset function.
The genius design behind the Rolex Double Quickset function that debuted with that model permitted the wearer to adjust both the date and day apertures separately from the current time with ease, as opposed to older Day-Date models that required endless winding. The Double Quickset function was simple to use: easily twist the crown towards the 12-hour marker to adjust the date or towards the 6-hour marker to change the day.
The day and date apertures are high on the list of the Day-Date’s most defining characteristics. Many collectors may argue that what makes this model so attractive to its large following, but, is its opulent and rich layout. Utilizing only precious metals, the Day-Date watch is on par with some of the world’s most lavish timepieces and will surely leave a lasting impression on all who gaze upon it. And owing to Rolex’s notoriously tough design, which always consists of a waterproof screw-down crown and a protective crystal over the dial, the amazing replica watch will hold its value well and potentially last a lifetime in your watch box.
It wasn’t until later that the Day-Date acquired its nickname “The President’s Watch”, shortly after Presidents have been spotted wearing these on their wrists. While some of these watches were accompanied by a five-link Jubilee bracelet together with most other rolex Day-Date fake watches, are generally paired with a President bracelet with three-piece links and a hidden Crownclasp. No matter the feature set, the Day-Date will forever be associated with power, high-class, and wealth thanks to its past owners.
The use of valuable metals surely adds to the Rolex President Day-Date price and creates a promising resale value as well. The popular watch can also be found with diamond encrusted bezels and dials, which ask for a rather higher price.
I don’t know if you have heard the news. Some of the world’s most sought-after Rolex watches — the Daytona will be sold on the Phillips auction house. And if Phillips sounds familiar, that’s because just last fall they’re the ones who sold Paul Newman’s personal Daytona for a great quantity.
The auction will take place in Geneva which is called dubbed Daytona Ultimatum, and while the company hasn’t mentioned which models will hit the auction block, we have no doubt these are going to be some of the best money can purchase. In a press release Philips teased that they’ll be showcasing, “an extremely limited selection of the finest, rarest, and best-preserved Rolex Daytona wrist watches known to exist.”
Actor, race car driver, philanthropist — Paul Newman could do it all. He could also have it all, but he chose a Rolex Daytona. Not long after Newman was seen wearing this timepiece, this ugly-duckling of a watch — that once collected dust on jewelers shelves for years — soon became appealing. It also got a new nickname, the Daytona, after the famous driving track. The rest is history.
Apart from Paul Newman’s personal timepiece, the most valuable Rolex replica watches are those of the first ‘series. During the first series, which lasted from 1963 until the 1980’s, a small number of models were made and given a 4-digit model number. The watches from the first series also differ from the second and third because they’re manual, not automatics or self-winding chronographs that you’d find later on and today.
So, how do you know if you hit the jackpot? Well, an original first series Daytona will always have a 4-digit reference number and it will be one of these models. If you really want another way to verify the identity of a series one, look at the sub dials — the domed crystals will be made of acrylic.
However, at present, we’re just going to have to wait and see what Phillips has to give to us. And while very few of us have the means to reach into our piggy banks for an opportunity at one of these rare replica watches, it’s going to be funny enough seeing what they have over the coming months. It’s going to be even more interesting to see what they go for!
As we all know that Diamonds are a girl’s favorites for a reason. Therefore, when you are going relax yourself or your lady with a Rolex, it’s probably a safe bet to splurge on the sparkly rocks. Despite his notion, we’re firm believers that diamond-clad replica watches shouldn’t look bedazzled. Actually, with diamonds on a typically smaller ladies timepiece, too much bling can look so luxury.
When we talk about the typical watchmakers who can do diamonds right, we have to turn to Rolex. The company does a great job integrating the precious stones alongside nice metals in a way that’s gorgeous and understated, even with their more showy examples. Today, we plan to show you three varying examples of how diamonds can be integrated into the ladies Rolex amongst some of their most famous models.
Our first example is a typical — showcasing white gold and stainless steel that’s outshined by the ten diamond hour markers on the face. We gravitated towards this example since the white, glimmering diamonds look stunning alongside the cool white gold and silver frame and face. The diamonds catch a glimmer of light and guide your eyes around that silver dial, up and around the classic curves of a DateJust with that attractive Jubilee band. The diamonds add some sparkle and lots of class, but don’t overpower the look whatsoever.
This timepiece is somewhat like a show stopper. To begin with, your gaze might drift towards the two-tone band and case, but soon your eyes move from that yellow 18k gold right to the shining diamonds that encompass the face and light up the dial. We even like how the diamonds on the dial are fastened with yellow gold, helping them pop against the milky-colored face. This replica watch has a much bolder look with two sets of diamonds. However, having the diamonds spread out around the case also prevents the diamond and yellow gold combination from looking flashy.
Therefore, this fake Rolex is amazing. Not only does this watch sit a bit bigger on the wrist, but the diamonds shine and draw your eye in from a mile away. We love how the diamonds are placed on top of a mother of pearl face — equally beautiful and organic, yet shimmering with different qualities. A circle of round diamonds encompasses the face with two sets of diamonds — all of them lined up right against each other. This beautiful display is outstanding and prominent, yet, against the cool white gold and stainless bracelet, it feels far from overdone.
The replica rolex Yachtmaster is a typical and modern everyman’s watch, embodying the energy of life as an explorer on the open seas. Perfect for the seasoned collector or the novice watch lover, this stunning accessory will literally stand the test of time.
Rolex tried to design a typical update on the Submariner in the early 1990s, which gained reputation for its resistance to water and corrosion. First introduced in 1954 at the Basal Watch Fair, this classic fake sports watch was perfect for deep diving and aqua adventures. However, the appearance of the Submariner lacked a certain gorgeous and sophistication. It lacked real panache and polish. Rolex changed all that with its design of the Yacht-Master.
This stunning new wristwatch was so great for the high seas but chic enough for a luxury dinner at the country club or a formal business affair. Marrying the contemporary luxury of Rolex with the functionality of a nautical device, this new breed of watches was a popular twist on beloved racing watches like the Daytona.
To style this watch is simply a matter of opting to dress with an effortlessly casual sensibility. A pair of flat front Dockers in a caramel khaki or a dark pebble brown will be ideal when paired with a checkered long sleeve button-up shirt. And a pair of loafers or lace-up boots finishes this stress-free style.
Forget the fashion formalities, this replica watches calls for a breezy, coastal chic attitude. It is all about comfort and ease, so there’s no need to have a shirt tucked or a blazer pressed,
The Rolex Yacht-Master watch requests nothing but a relaxed and easygoing attitude. The watch does the work—it calculates, computes, and clocks but the wearer need not sweat; they get to stare at the ever expansive ocean and breathe in the warm salty air without a care in the world.
You may notice so many nice words in replica watch descriptions. Practical is not something you hear often in Panerai parlance, but the special watch is refreshingly just that. Today we will talk about the very wearable and luxurious fake Panerai Luminor GMT PAM01088.
A pretty newly established model by Panerai, the Luminor GMT PAM01088 made its debut in 2016 to replace the PAM00088. The replica watch sports a 44mm stainless steel case and like all Luminor models, it contains the trademark lever-controlled bridge protecting the winding crown. This, of course, is to ensure the watch’s water resistance to 300 meters. After all, Panerai timepieces were born as diving watches for the Italian Navy in the early part of the 20th century.
Moving onto the dial, the replica Panerai Luminor GMT PAM01088 bears quite a bit more information relative to other Panerai models. Apart from the semi-skeleton hour and minute hands and gray subdial housing the small seconds, there’s also a date window and a GMT function. The GMT function allows the wearer to read another time zone thanks to the arrow-tipped hand pointing to the 24-hour markings on the periphery of the dial. Features of Panerai watches, the Luminor GMT PAM01088 is equipped with plenty of lume and lights up beautifully in the dark.
Panerai replica watches are popular for their sumptuous leather straps and the Luminor GMT PAM01088 is no exception. Presented on a rich brown leather strap with a steel tang buckle, the Luminor GMT is wonderfully comfortable to wear and a joy to look at. There is even an extra black rubber strap if the wearer decides to go for a dive or just wants to add a new look to the watch.
The main difference between the Panerai Luminor GMT PAM01088 and the previous PAM00088 is the movement that drives the watch. The cheap Panerai Luminor GMT PAM01088 runs on the Caliber OP XXXI automatic movement (versus the previous OP VIII).
In fact, the Caliber OP XXXI is a modified version of the famous ETA/Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement. However, Panerai removed the chronograph function and added the 24-hour hand. Operating at 28,800 beats per hour, the COSC-certified Caliber OP XXXI automatic movement offers 50 hours of power reserve.
How do you like the fake Panerai Luminor GMT PAM01088? Do you appreciate the addition of the date window and GMT function?
Introduced in 2008, the popular Deepsea took the Sea-Dweller to another level, more than tripling its water resistance to an impressive 12,800 feet / 3,990 meters. This actually is the result of a fair share of engineering marvels, including the 5mm-thick sapphire crystal to bear the underwater pressure assisted by a visible Ringlock system that keeps the watch’s thickness under the range of 18mm. Besides, of course, the replica watches features a Cerachrom bezel, and the new Chromalight lume. In summary, this was the Formula 1 of Rolex divers, in a 44mm case.
A very unique edition was released in 2014 to commemorate James Cameron’s 2012 expedition into the Mariana Trench. The D-Blue edition was an event in itself, as the fake Rolex almost never acts like this. The replica watch wasn’t strictly limited in number, and remains available to this day, with its gradient blue dial having found some die-hard enthusiasts. And if you feel 44mm might be too big, this has to be compared to the 51mm measurements of the custom Deepsea Challenge that survived a depth of 10,908 meters on the side of James Cameron’s vessel. That’s serious.
With the introduction of this very unique model, the Sea-Dweller returned in 2014 after a five-year absence. Surely, the watch received a bezel upgrade to Cerachrom ceramic instead of the aluminum of the former Sea-Dweller. The case went back to 40mm, with lugs thinner than those of the replica Rolex Submariner. It gave many details that vintage enthusiasts could relate to, from the Maxi dial with oversized indexes to the full minute markings on the bezel, also found on the vintage MilSub. It also features the modern comfort of the Glidelock adjustment on the clasp and the effective blue Chromalight lume.
However, this special model is also the most short-lived Sea-Dweller in history, replaced just a couple of years after its original release. Despite its technical feats, it never managed to justify its price premium over the Submariner, often solely being identified as the “Submariner without cyclops.” However, as soon as the news of its disappearance hit Basel this year, the second-hand value of the great watch suddenly soared.
Ben reviewed the new model very closely earlier this year, and you probably remember the watch’s most striking novelty: a cyclop over the date. It became the very first Sea-Dweller to feature one, a radical departure from the original model. Yet, its single red line also offers an amazing nod to the first prototype Sea-Dwellers.
Very apparently, these replica watches has grown to 43mm, differentiating it even more from the Submariner, which has stayed at 40mm. However, the lug size also grew to 22mm, which preserved the watch’s proportions in the process.
Speed and “extreme machines” have always been a big effect on Bell & Ross, the cult watch brand founded in Paris in 1992 which has been steering course towards more horologically perfect replica watches since opening its own manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 1992. This brand, which pays homage to fighter jet instrumentation in recent years, has been creating concept cars and motorbikes alongside watch collections echoing the speed, style, and beauty of these machines.
In 2014 they launched the B-Rocket, a retro-styled streamlined motorbike evoking those built to break land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. In 2016 they made the Aero GT aircraft-inspired supercar concept with a more modern “stealth fighter” vibe. Now, let’s move on to the fake watches by Bell and Ross.
The Belly tanker watches combine both aeronautical influences and numerous nods to the watch making world, as Bell & Ross puts it. The bodywork – essentially part of an airplane that’s been re-purposed with four wheels – equates to the case of a watch. The glass covering the cockpit is the watch’s crystal. Copper detailing is a nod to the decoration on certain 1940s-era timepieces. And you can take it where you will from there. The first watch in the new Belly tanker Collection is the BR-V1 92, a classic round-dialed piece with an offset date window which is otherwise aimed at pleasing purists. The solid case back features an engraved image of the Belly tanker, while the “ultra-curved” sapphire crystal brings to mind the glass covering an airplane cockpit. The metallic copper dial is echoed on the race car’s wheel rims. And the aircraft-shaped counterweight on the seconds’ hand is one of Bell & Ross’ new signature details.
The BR-V2 94 meanwhile is the real closer. A chronograph version of the BR-V1, it apparently stakes stylistic cues from the replica rolex Daytona and Speed master models but with a distinctive Bell & Ross edge and a nod to the famed P-51 Mustang fighter. Available on either a brown leather strap or stainless steel bracelet, the case size is better suited to men of style at 41 mm, while the sapphire case back reveals the chronograph movement. The bezel features a typical tachymeter scale. And the “panda” dial with its contrasting black sundials is a real winner. The black of the minute track evokes the “stealth” paintwork on the Belly tanker’s nose. And the metal skeleton hands are filled with Superluminova for visibility in all conditions. Both are being produced in a limited edition of 500 pieces, so apparently, the BR-V2 94 at least is destined to become coveted by collectors.
You may heard that Mariano Rivera is much more than a world-renowned Yankee player — he’s baseball’s best closer, a thirteen-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion. Rivera played for the New York team for 19 seasons as a relief pitcher and closer, and was famous for his ‘cutter’ pitch. Rivera even walked away as a career leader in saves with 652 at the end of his baseball career in 2013, and games finished clocking in at 952. I have to say that he’s an impressive man.
Since Rivera’s legendary career, we’ve seen him step out from under the bright lights and into the replica watches — taking on projects in his home country of Panama and even receiving the ROBIE Humanitarian Award. And today, he’s supporting his family in New York and casually posing for pictures alongside fellow former-Yankee Alex Rodriguez and artist Jennifer Lopez.
When we came across this photo we had to take a second look because there’s a stunning 18KT White Gold Rolex Sky-dweller model peeking out from under his sleeve right there. It’s an incredible timepiece perfectly fitted for such a legend — so, let’s take a closer look.
With a large, modern 42mm case, the Sky-Dweller series feels inherently masculine. This model quickly became a fan-favorite of replica Rolex fans for its gleaming 18k white gold case and bracelet, and that incredibly refined and distinctive face. No matter you love it or you hate it, but the fake Rolex collectors who love it — they can’t get enough.
Here, you can see that Rivera’s watch has a black face outfitted with white Arabic numerals — but that’s not the controversy. It’s the unique dial with an open GMT display and an off-center 24-hour dial that sets this watch apart, and makes it a huge departure from the Rolex replica. The Sky-Dweller is also the first of its kind to feature two time zones as well as an innovative annual calendar. While the aesthetics of this watch are — amongst collectors — debated, the look is purposeful and refined overall.
The gorgeous face right up against white gold really dresses this look up, making it the best timepiece to accentuate any black tie event or steal glances at dinner with friends. We wonder if A-Rod had trouble keeping his eyes on his new girlfriend with this gleaming beauty between them.
We have a wide array of Sky-Dwellers up on the website for you to browse. If you prefer the special features of a Sky-Dweller, you’re not going to want to miss the deals we have on this incredible timepiece.
Together with his legendary athletic prowess, the five-time Super Bowl champ is famous for his perfect style off the field as well. Not only have we spotted Brady pairing his full stainless steel Milgauss replica watch with a sharp suit, he’s also switched out the Oyster bracelet for a black leather bracelet to match a more laid-back look. That’s how it’s done, handsome!
Carolina Panther fans are hoping Cam Newton’s throwing shoulder will hold up well this season after the quarterback’s surgery earlier this year. Football aside, Newton also grabs much attention for his signature features.
Since our previous report on Newton’s watches, it seems his appreciation for the Rolex replica watches hasn’t slowed down. To accent his fashion-forward outfits, Newton often wears his yellow gold Yacht-Master II model. As a matter of fact, the 44mm solid gold Yacht-Master II topped with the shiny blue Cerachrom ceramic bezel stands out well amongst the stacks of beads and bracelets he wears with it.
Taking over for Tony Romo during his rookie season with the Dallas Cowboys, quarterback Dak Prescott impressed fans and critics alike with his skills. So much so, that Prescott was named the 2016 Rookie of the Year. Besides, he also picked up an ESPY award this summer for Best Breakthrough Athlete.
Prescott donned a two-tone Rolex Datejust 41 watch with a Jubilee bracelet and black dial during the glitzy ESPY award ceremony. However, not satisfied with an off-the-shelf Rolex, Prescott added a custom diamond bezel too.
It’s been twelve years since Aaron Rodgers began his professional career with the Green Bay Packers and he’s got a slew of accomplishments to show for it. Along with leading the Packers to their 2010 Super Bowl victory, Rodgers is a two-time NFL MVP (2011, 2014). He’s also the 2016 NFL passing touchdowns leader.
Rodgers famously said “size matters” in reference to how his hands were able to hold onto the football after Cowboy’s Jeff Heath sacked him last season. And the same sentiment seems to ring true when he picked his Rolex Deepsea watch. Not only does the Rolex extreme diving watch boast a 44mm case but it’s also 17.7mm thick to accommodate the Helium Escape Valve. As such, the Deepsea is the largest watch in fake Rolex’s current catalog.
Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons had high hopes to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy last year. But those chances unraveled very fast during the last leg of the Super Bowl 51 game when the Pats bounced back big to ultimately clinch the win. However, Ryan was still prized the NFL MVP for 2016 and the Falcons are heading into the new season with a mission to redeem themselves.
Matthew Stafford made headlines last month when he became the top-paid player in the NFL, ever. And what does the highest paid football player wear on his wrist? The most in-demand replica Rolex watch right now of course is just the stainless steel and ceramic Daytona fake watch. But actually, that’s not the fact, Stafford also wears a solid gold Sky-Dweller, one of Rolex’ priciest models to date. And with such a hefty payday, Stafford can certainly afford to add a few more pieces to his Rolex collection.
With this front row seat, fans may find that Wilson’s stainless steel Daytona watch on his wrist while he goes about his busy life. Although this Daytona is no longer in production due to the introduction of the ceramic bezel version, the perfect model remains extremely popular every now and then.
