Around the watch world, there was a collective “WTF” exhalation this week at the news that two colourful dialled luxury fake Rolex Oyster Perpetuals had each sold at Christie’s for over CHF 50,000 apiece (read Zach’s story about it all here). Hand-wringing over the prices of such hype pieces is understandable. But if you managed to jump on the bandwagon early, what’s it like to actually own one of these pieces? How do they actually fare on the wrist? To find out, let’s revisit this review from Jason Marsden about why he absolutely loves his yellow-dialled Swiss made replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual.
When most people think of perfect fake Rolex UK they think serious luxury. Traditional designs that have become the very definition of aspirational watch style. Their iconic designs such as the Submariner are copied by many, so much so that they have almost become a parody of themselves.
Swiss movement replica Rolex has had some fun with its blue and green colour options on the Submariner but the watches still retained their serious style. Not until you first see the polarising Rainbow Daytona or Eye of the Tiger Rolex Daytona fake for sale do you start to get a glimpse of just how far Rolex is capable of pushing aesthetics. These gem-set watches are not only massive style statements but come with a massive price tag and exclusivity, too.
At the entry level of the high quality fake Rolex offering sits the Oyster Perpetual. This time-only watch is all the Rolex quality you would expect but in the very pure and uncluttered dial format that forgoes the date window and thus the somewhat iconic cyclops magnifier. In truth, I do not like a magnifier on any watch crystal so this limits which Rolex models appeal to me. For many, however, it is not a top 1:1 replica Rolex unless it has the iconic date window magnifier sitting like a droplet of spring water on the crystal.
