Two-Tone Rolex Explorer replica online UK. That is a combination of four words that I would not at all have expected to say six months ago. And when I first saw them back in April, when Rolex dropped the unexpected ref. 124273, I’ll admit I was caught off-guard. An cheap fake Rolex Explorer with gold? Isn’t that antithetical to the Explorer’s no-nonsense spirit and disrespectful to the legacy of Rolex’s least-changed sport watch? It might very well be, but it’s also the recipe for a copy watch that I immediately knew I needed to get on my wrist and test for myself.
It’s easy to get jaded in the watch world today. There’s so much “us too” design happening – something becomes successful and then everyone else makes their version of it. There’s so much “heritage” and “DNA” floating around that prevents watchmakers from experimenting. To see best quality replica Rolex, as storied and conservative a brand as you’ll find anywhere, in any industry, go out on a limb and get weird like this was genuinely inspiring to me. That they could keep me on my toes and show me a watch that put me at a loss for words got me seriously excited.
So how does the watch stand up? I’m a longtime lover of the AAA fake Rolex Explorer and the proud owner of a vintage (all-steel) Explorer that I wear all the time, and I can truly say that the two-tone Explorer ref. 124273 delivers on its promise of being something familiar and something surprising all at the same time.
The Steadfast Explorer
The Explorer has one of the more straightforward histories when it comes to 1:1 Rolex sport super clone watches. There are only a handful of references, very few wacky variations, and the design has remained mostly unchanged since the watch debuted in 1953 with the reference 6350. At that point, the top fake Rolex already had most of its defining characteristics. It used a 36mm stainless steel Oyster case as the foundation and featured a black dial with 3-6-9 numerals, framed by a polished steel bezel. Those characteristics would remain largely unchanged for 57 years, with the reference 1016 itself being produced for nearly half of that span.
The big shake-up came in 2010 with the introduction of the high quality fake Rolex Explorer ref. 214270, which upsized the case to 39mm for the first time. To call this controversial amongst Explorer enthusiasts would be an understatement. Die-hards like myself find it hard to consider any watch that isn’t 36mm a true Rolex Explorer replica for sale, as the more reserved size and understated personality are key parts of what make this watch unique within the Rolex catalog. But, Rolex is going to do what Rolex is going to do, and this certainly doesn’t seem to have hurt sales or diminished general interest in the Rolex Explorer fake Paypal. Just ask anyone who’s tried to buy a ref. 214270 and they’ll tell you just how hot they are.
