For those who are thinking of selling their Rolex, an urgent thing, and arguably the most important question that is possibly going to break out is, “How much is my Rolex worth?”
However, a quick Internet search may only give you more questions than answers as to what dollar value you should expect to receive in exchange for your timepiece. The fake Rolex has been producing the same handful of watch models for most of the company’s existence, and some of their watch lines have been around for well over half a century. Only subtle changes and updates take place between the different iterations, and prices can range greatly for seemingly near-identical replica watches.
Rolex timepieces have a perfect way of retaining their value all over the years, and in some instances, even appreciating if given enough time and the right circumstances. Whether you are interested in selling a vintage Rolex Submariner, a contemporary Datejust, or a Day-Date President with a diamond dial, the first step you will take in the process of selling your Rolex is determining its fair market value.
Although it may initially appear to be a sophisticated and confusing process, there are several quick and easy ways to work out the value of your watch. The first step in deciding its value is to figure out the model/reference number of your Rolex. The model number printed on it on the replica watch as well; however, if you no longer have this – or if you purchased the watch pre-owned and never received it, you will be able to find the model number engraved between the lugs (once the bracelet has been removed) on the 12 o’clock side of the watch.
Besides, you can submit the model number together with your contact information to us through our Free Instant Quote Request Form and one of our representatives will reach out to you with the current best price for your best replica watch.
As you begin to navigate the selling process, the most significant piece of information that you need to know is the true, fair market value of your watch. Most purchasers do not publicly list the prices they pay for watches; however, we believe this process should be transparent enough. We publish both Buy and Sell prices for every watch so that both buyers and sellers alike can verify that they are getting a reasonable business. No matter what Rolex replica you own, or who eventually ends up purchasing the watch, it is crucial to know the actual value of your timepiece. As long as you know the true value of your Rolex, you can guarantee that you will receive a reasonable price for it.
For those who are thinking of selling their Rolex, an urgent thing, and arguably the most important question that is possibly going to break out is, “How much is my Rolex worth?”
The Yacht-Master II is a watch intended for those in the yachting community. Similar to the real Yacht-Master in no way whatsoever, this hulking great vibrant behemoth contains one of the most technically impressive sophistications ever shoehorned inside the innovation of any replica watch brand.
It could also serve as the dictionary definition of the word ‘niche’ as a product. Powered by a new caliber that needed more than 35,000 man-hours to devise, the result was a watch that’s sole target was to assist yacht skippers to coordinate the beginning procedure of a sailing regatta.
Demographically, it is a unique small purpose for the marketing department to aim for. However, while its looks have split opinion and are a world away from the handsome elegance that has been the fake Rolex hallmark for over 100 years, the Yacht-Master II has won plenty of fans.
Its concept and sheer audacity have also silenced many of the brand’s critics and, while not correctly opening the floodgates for a slew of multifunction models to come pouring out of their Geneva HQ, the Rolex has at least showed that, should they make up their mind to mix it up in the world of complications, they can compete with the best of them.
The first of the series was unveiled available in either yellow or white gold finishes. In 2011, the watch appeared, a canny Rolesor variant, which blended 904L steel with Rolex’s warm Everose gold. The combination went a long way in toning down some of the Yacht-Master’s color scheme eccentricities and making it much easier on the eye.
The 44mm case, the biggest in the Rolex fleet, affords a large surface area for the dial designers to play with. And it’s just as well. There is much information displayed on the replica watch’s face, but the logical placement of each element gives it legible readability.
The main point to all this functionality exists in the Yacht-Master’s most conspicuous component, the bright blue bezel with its oversized, golden numerals. More than simply being the fake watch’s border, the bezel is the most important part of its overall operation.
It sounds like a convoluted affair, but as a matter of fact, there is a perfectly designed intuitiveness to getting the most out of the Yacht-Master. The Rolex engineers have pared down the process as much as possible, while still retaining all the essential performance.
By 2013, Rolex had perfected the purpose-built Cal. 4161 specifically for the Yacht-Master. Their most component-heavy caliber to date, it is constructed from 360 separate parts. As well as the improved accuracy and shock resistance provided by including the replica Rolex’s own Parachrom hairspring, the 31 jewels, high beat movement also has an increased power reserve of 72 hours thanks to its huge mainspring barrel.
in baselworld 2016, there are the most hotly-anticipated releases of the year, among them, the new Rolex Gmt-master ii with a “Pepsi” red and blue bezel is my favorite. the Pepsi Gmt is undoubtedly one of the most iconic watches from Rolex’s history and it’s finally back in a souped-up form. it quite soon became the new star in the best replica watch market.
the technical specs of the new replica Gmt-master ii are quite similar to last year’s extremely popular black and blue Gmt-master ii, including the use of the eta movement with a para chrome hairspring with Breguet overcoil. the two biggest differences are the bezel and the metal. instead of the black/blue bezel, this model has the classic Pepsi combination of red and blue. the bezel starts entirely red and then through a chemical process, half the bezel is turned to deep blue. red is an extremely difficult color to achieve in ceramic and the dual-color process is patented by Rolex. the numerals are engraved and then coated with a thin layer of platinum for legibility. the two tones are meant to mimic those of the bakelite bezels from the original Gmt master.
although Rolex has rendered the new Gmt-master ii in solid 18k white gold (over three times the price of a steel Gmt-master ii ), more watch fans might have expected this watch to be released in steel for finance issue, so more of them have to choose the Rolex replica. and it’s the same 40mm Rolex sport case shape that we’re used to and the gold oyster bracelet has polished center links and brushed side links with a locking clasp. the dial is a deep black lacquer and the Gmt hand has the familiar styling with a red shaft and a silver arrow filled with lume.
while Rolex does not answer anyone why they produce the new Gmt-master ii in 18k white gold, the fact remains that if you want the hottest Gmt watch, you may need to take more time considering the best replica Rolex Gmt-master ii.
Rolex watches in pairs are a really good choice for an engagement, wedding, or anniversary. For a sporty chic vibe, the replica Rolex Yacht-Master is a top choice. For him, there’s the Yacht-Master model and for her, there’s the comparable Yacht-Master model as well. Both luxurious yet still casual, this pair of Yacht-Master watches proudly shows off a nautical flair.
The men’s Yacht-Master fake watch is a two-tone Rolesor model that sports a 40mm stainless steel with an 18k yellow gold bezel. Carrying on the two-tone style are the 18k yellow gold center links on the predominant steel Oyster bracelet. Housed within the case is a deep blue dial along with the characteristic round luminescent hour-markers and date window at 3 o’clock.
Though the ladies Yacht-Master watch also features a blue dial, this time it sits within a solid 18k yellow gold Rolex model. The mid-size case measures 35mm and similar to the men’s model, also includes a yellow gold rotatable bezel with oversized raised numerals.
For the ultimate power couple, nothing beats the fake Rolex’s definitive status watch, the President. For him, we’d recommend the white gold Day-Date II model while for her, we recommend the white gold Datejust watch with a President bracelet.
The men’s replica Rolex President is from the now discontinued Day-Date II collection with a large 41mm case. This particular model has a blue wave-pattern dial that sets a lush background to the iconic pair of day and date windows along with the white gold Arabic numerals. Paired with the white gold case and the fluted bezel is the signature President bracelet also in 18k white gold.
This ladies’ Rolex is not a Day-Date, but rather a Datejust model as illustrated by the date window at 3 o’clock magnified by a Cyclops lens. But what makes it a ladies’ President is the iconic solid gold semi-circular three-link bracelet dubbed the President bracelet by Rolex.
With its tri-color dial, this specific model of the Daytona replica watch is a modern tribute to the most famous Rolex Daytona wearer of them all, Paul Newman. The black dial with champagne registers and red accents looks especially great encased within the solid yellow gold case. Of course, attached to the 40mm Oyster case is the fixed tachymeter engraved bezel distinct to the Daytona, as are the pair of Chrono screw-down pushers flanking the winding crown.
Aesthetically very similar, yet a touch more refined for females is the two-tone Datejust watch. What’s more, just like the Daytona, the 36mm Date just was initially crafted with the gents in mind, but the ladies wear it just as well. This edition is particularly graceful with its gold fluted bezel, two-tone Oyster bracelet, and ivory dial with a subtle pyramid-motif dial.
Finally, the Oyster Perpetual model is an ideal model for couples looking for a youthful and modern Rolex watch that won’t break the bank. It is today’s entry-level Rolex watch.
Given its alluring straightforward design, versatile stainless steel, practical 39mm size, and range of dial colors, the above replica watch is a Rolex that suits both males and females.
Luxury Rolex replica watches could be divided into two categories for two very different types of users: the first is for someone who actually will use the Sea-Dweller for practical usage, underwater for great lengths of time. The second is watches for those men and women who simply want a huge, special, sporty dive watch from a famous brand.
There are dozens of options from major brands in the first category. Think Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, Omega Seamaster 300, maybe something from JLC or AP, even. The list goes on and on. These are all perfect watches, though I would say few have the permanence of the Sea-Dweller. What’s more, I would venture to say that is the very appeal of all Rolex watches – you just know that in 30 years, your Rolex will be just as cool as it was the day you bought it. As for others, things come and go, but with Rolex, you’re buying into a legacy. So of course, that red line of text might not last forever – same with the cyclops window or the 43mm case size – but you know the Sea-Dweller will always be around, and that’s worth something to the type of person who is sentimental enough to believe that spending thousands of dollars on a mechanical watch is a good idea in the first place.
The other smaller set of possible users are people who are actual professional saturation divers and want a technical dive watch as a backup. For this crowd, the competition comes from the likes of the fake IWC Aquatimer 2000 and the replica Omega PloProf – both perfect fake watches from major brands rated to the same depth or even deeper than the Sea-Dweller. Besides, neither feel like they have the permanence of the Sea-Dweller, but they might be a little more funky and retro, and bright colors and rubber straps abound. A case could be made for any number of Doxas, as well, which have their own underwater history, and in some cases again are rated to even deeper than the Sea-Dweller. However, as Captain Barth told Jason Heaton in 2012, “Most divers prefer to wear Rolex because they seem(ed) to be a little sturdier than anything else.”
And that’s just it. The most severe competition for the new fake Rolex Sea-Dweller is from Rolex. It’s the outgoing 40mm and the one millimeter larger, but even deeper rated, Deepsea. It’s the Submariner! Rolex has such a strong offering of dive watches it’s unbelievable to see that if someone were slightly turned off by a feature or two of the Sea-Dweller, which they wouldn’t just turn to another Rolex diver with slightly different specs. I’ve even heard that there is a run on the outgoing because people think that will be a collectible – the last 40mm, cyclops-less Sea-Dweller. It’s possible, but I also know that the current Sea-Dweller 126600 is also a very popular watch at the moment, which is saying a lot for a professional tool watch with relatively limited commercial appeal. Here’s a quick guide on how the new Sea-Dweller stacks up against its brethren.
Now more than ever I know that the Sea-Dweller is just too big for me. 43mm isn’t the issue, and actually, I happen to think that much as the Datograph got better when it upsized to the Up/Down because the thickness was balanced out by the increased diameter, this watch might even run better as a 43mm than it did as a 40mm watch. It doesn’t feel so hockey-puck-ish anymore.
As a matter of fact, I grew to be okay with the replica watch on my little girly-man wrist, which more often than not is adorned with lightweight 38mm cases and hollow-link bracelets. But here’s where I differ from the Rolex advertisement above from 1964. As for me, this watch doesn’t belong at the conference table. It belongs on the wrists of people like Professor Picard, or Scott Carpenter, or Bob Barth. But not on me – it’s overkill on me. A replica Submariner with a jacket and tie is one thing – the damn watch is part of our cultural DNA at this point – but the Sea-Dweller is actually a tool. It’s something built to serve a very distinct purpose during a particular part of our history that was purposeful.
It must be the very fake Rolex ever issued of this replica watch when it comes to GMT Masters. Designed to be the watch of selection for Pan-Am pilots, the GMT Master became the benchmark when it comes to two-timezone watches. A title that is still as true today as it was when the watch was released in 1954. Despite being the first, what mainly sets it apart from later versions of this model is the bakelite bezel. The thought behind it is that even in low-light conditions you could easily check the time in both time-zones. So it must have looked so great when these watches were first issued, it was also a cause for trouble. The numerals inside the bezel are actually filled in with Radium. Bakelite is by itself already quite brittle, and combined with the radioactivity of the Radium made it that fake watches Rolex discontinued this bezel so fast.
Rolex GMT Masters replica watch which still has the original bakelite bezel is very rare, especially after more than 60 years. What makes them even rarer is when the bezel is still in great shape and indicates a rather awesome discoloration like this cheap fake Rolex GMT Master does. This is an unusual occurrence that watches collectors refer to as “tropical”.
Now there are tropical watches. The one on this GMT-Master is clearly of the latter category, showing a beautiful, even discoloration of both the dial and the bezel in a deep terracotta hue. Discoloration like this is very rare, and although this reference by itself is already quite a challenge to find in such a remarkable nice condition, the dial and bezel on this special GMT Master make it a unique piece. It goes in the direction of the Root Beer GMT Master; only this watch has more of a red tone in the dial. Unique is also that the half of the bezel that was originally red turned to the same color as the originally black dial!
Additionally, this is exactly the reason why the Rolex replica with tropical dials commands such premiums over the same model with a regular dial. They are rare, unique, and add an extra layer of character to an already replica Rolex charismatic watch.
One of the best replica Rolex’s formative reputation-making feats was providing the stainless steel Oyster Perpetual for Sir Edmund Hillary. He wore this watch on his groundbreaking conquest of Mt. Everest in 1953. This later evolved into the replica Rolex Explorer collection, one of the most important and iconic sports replicas watches in the world. Now, the legendary Swiss watch brand has inked a new wide-ranging partnership with National Geographic. It is expected to see that the fake Rolex will support explorers and exploration.
The two brands have been lined since 1963 on many different projects but this marks a new era in support of scientific adventures which we feel is a crucial part of Rolex remaining true to its impressive heritage and the legacy of founder Hans Wilsdorf. The new partnership will see the replica Rolex invest in scientific research and exploration as well as conservation. The goal is to inspire the next generation of explorers while raising awareness of the planet’s challenges.
“Since the 1930s, in keeping with the spirit of its founder, Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex has accompanied pioneering human adventures to the far reaches of the planet,” notes Arnaud Boetsch, Director of Communication & Image, Rolex SA, “supporting those who through their vision, their courage and their drive to push the boundaries of what is possible, shed new light on the world. And the fake Rolex watches have been necessary tools for these explorers of the unknown. We have shared a vital mission of exploration with National Geographic for 63 years and are delighted to deepen our partnership as our knowledge evolves, concentrating on scientific research, exploration, and conservation. Raising awareness of the planet’s challenges and inspiring coming generations to protect Earth and its marvels is in line with our DNA and our history.”
Nowadays, the replica watch brand presents the fake Rolex National Geographic Explorer of the Year Award, given to “an inspiring individual who actions, achievements, and spirit personifies leadership and reflects National Geographic’s commitment to making extraordinary scientific discoveries and sharing them with the world.” Winners are given a specially engraved Explorer wristwatch. The new partnership could see the fake Rolex give away more watches, especially to deep-sea divers and individuals like Titanic director and underwater adventurist James Cameron. The move comes as Rolex pulls back on sponsorship of one of its most heavily branded events, the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in Lexington, a key occasion on the worldwide equestrian calendar. Rolex has ended its relationship after 36 years, perhaps to place more resources at the disposal of the new Explorers project.
We’ve been in great thought before on comparing vintage Rolex sports replica watches with modern supercars but seldom do we get to test the move with such panache as our excursion in the incredible new AMG GT C Roadster. Probably you think that a fashion replica Rolex Daytona would suit the car to a tee, and you may be correct, but there’s something a little more gracefully daring in opting for a vintage model instead. The piece is just shy of the well-known exotic dial “Paul Newman” of the same period and reference, and altogether a much better deal for the knowledgeable collector.
The one we strapped on features which were first debuted in 1967, coveted black dial with white sub-dials and the iconic “DAYTONA” legend in red which gives this piece its nickname. The vintage Daytona model is manufactured with screw-down chronograph pushers as well, which the fake Rolex introduced in 1965, as well as a waterproof screw-down crown which prompted the addition of the word OYSTER between ROLEX and COSMOGRAPH. Though they’ve never had a partnership, Rolex and AMG share a similar heritage, committed to the ultimate in performance, precision, and craftsmanship. There’s a natural alliance between the two brands which both make mechanical wonders capable of extreme feats. AMG was founded in 1967 by some guys tuning Mercedes cars in their garage; Mercedes parent Daimler-Benz AG took a controlling interest in 1999, making it official.
Right from the beginning, AMG cars proved capable of wiping the tarmac with the competition and inspired every luxury car brand to add its own performance division. The AMG GT C Roadster is the direct descendant of the famed Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing”, perhaps the most beautiful car ever made. The AMG GT’s predecessor, the SLS AMG, featured the same gullwing doors. But having driven both cars we can state that the AMG GT is by far the superior piece of machinery. The Roadster version is the ultimate in open-topped motoring, which to us always gives things a bit of a vintage feel, dating back to the time when sports touring cars did not come equipped with fixed roofs.
It’s the question every Rolex collector has heard many times and the one they hope they never have to answer: if you could only wear one watch for the rest of your life, which would it be?
I won’t pretend it would be an easy determination. Actually let’s face it, which would be their own personal Sophie’s Choice moment for some collectors. But just as an exercise, I am going to start the ball rolling and answer the question myself—and then you can all use the comments section to tell me why I’m wrong! If you’re only going to be wearing one replica watch from now on, it needs to be one that you can wear in any situation. A watch equally at home in the boardroom as it is by the pool.
There is also a large number of us who would prefer the quartz movement watch. However, not many mechanical watch purists can get behind battery-powered movements, but like it or annoy it, quartz is a major part of watchmaking history and the Beta 21 is definitely worth discussing. Longtime readers might remember a little thing Jack and I put together called “Quartz Week,” a series of stories dedicated to all things quartz. The week was not exactly well-received, but it was absolutely educational. One story I wrote was a list of the most collectible Beta 21 watches, and one of those watches was the Rolex replica watch. I was lucky enough to see one in the metal recently at Christie’s, as they have a white gold version coming up for auction in Geneva on Monday.
First things first – the Beta 21 movement is gorgeous. While it is kind of a pain to actually keep, it is a really historical part of watchmaking that’s also just flat-out fun. In case you don’t know what Beta 21 is (no judgment), here is a brief history. The main goal was for the caliber to be as accurate as possible, but alas, the results were not as wonderful as the CEH had hoped. The Beta 21 was implemented in a range of wristwatches from the fake Patek Philippe to the IWC Da Vinci to several strange Piaget models. But, for me, the Beta 21 is all about the Rolex.
This replica watch was first launched in 1970, and one year after the Beta 21 was completed. It’s unclear exactly how many examples were made between 1970 and 1972 when the model was discontinued. As with many things concerning vintage Rolex, it’s hard to know figures for certain since Rolex will neither confirm nor deny in most cases.
The watches are separately numbered and there are pieces known to exist with numbers over 1,000, but there are several schools of thought as to how many total pieces exist and what the yellow gold/white gold split is like. One theory is that there were just over 700 examples made in yellow gold and just over 300 examples made in white gold. Another is that there are closer to 900 in yellow and 100 in white. In the end, some suggest that there are actually two batches of these fake watches, with 900 in yellow and 100 in which in each batch, with 2,000 existing in total.
The white gold model you see here is number 794 and is in new-old-stock condition. This is unusual for any watch, let alone a Beta 21 Rolex. It features a heavy white gold case with a fluted bezel and a tenacious bracelet with faceted links. Rolex always seems to make the best bracelets, and this unusual one is no exception. I chalk it up to the NOS condition, rarity, the fact that it is a historical piece, and that it is accompanied by a 1986 service invoice and green hang-tag.
