Ask and you shall receive – I bring you the Rolex Air-King! This year at Baselworld we have seen the new Daytona, the Explorer, the Datejust 41, and now the Rolex replica Air-King watches. This puppy has a ton of new features and has a relatively good price (for a Rolex).
The Air-King is one of the most well-known (and widely missed) Rolex models. Initially released in 1945 (along with the Datejust), this model (like every Rolex model) has seen several modifications over the decades, and this year is no different.
The new Air-King comes in a 40 mm 904L stainless-steel Oyster case. The shiny black dial features the 3-6-9 hour configuration (à la the Explorer) and the minute indication on the fives.
And the best part? The dial bears the name “Air-King” in the same script as the ones from the 1950s. Additionally, this watch is powered by the automatic caliber 3131 movement Rolex fake watches and is also a certified superlative chronometer.
All in all, this watch is king (sorry, had to) to a lot of Rolex fans out there and it is surely a welcome return. And for CHF 5,900, this is considered the “entry level” Rolex.
Why such bad feelings about a watch that is, after all, one of the most iconic and most sought-after timepieces of the entire industry, whatever the era? To answer you, there are many watches that I personally won’t buy, but in case of the Rolex Daytona, we are many steps further. It is a combination of different aspects, most of them being far from objective. First of all, there’s the look. Since 1989 and the automatic versions, the Daytona has, to me, lost its tool aspect. It is shiny, rather bulky, badly proportioned (that fat shiny bezel), too polished and overall, quite blingy.
Then, there’s the unbalanced case, with a thin left side and a bulky right side. And I’m not even talking about the screwed pushers that I find useless and unpractical on a daily basis. And if I always found the steel versions too monochromatic and thus missing some contrast, the gold versions Rolex daytona copy watches were even less appealing, especially because of the public representation they had – a sort of statement watch, telling “look, I made it.”
This leads us to the other and properly personal reasons why I didn’t like the Rolex Daytona: its aura, its image, what it says as an object when worn. I’ve always disliked that fake-exclusivity driven by low deliveries to retailers. I don’t like how this watch can be so sought-after, even if it remains, after all, a simple sporty chronograph from a mainstream brand (with all due respect to Rolex, which I consider one of the best manufactures around). I also don’t like how some people use this watch to show to the world how they succeed. Where’s the passion in that? After all these bad feelings, you might think I’m excessive, however, consider one thing: I have a lot of respect for the brand and the model, and without the image that is linked to this watch, I would certainly not be that harsh on the Rolex Daytona.
So what could well the reasons why I have changed my mind so quickly about the Rolex Daytona, to finally get to the point where I can say “I love the new 2017 Rolex Daytona Gold / Ceramic / Oysterflex.” First of all, it is not advertising money from Rolex that leads me to this point – first of all, there is none, and secondly that’s not how we work at Monochrome! In the case of the 2017 Gold Daytonas, it’s all about the look, the balance, the details and the right codes, which finally talk to me. Yet, before that, we have to look back at the 2016 Steel/Ceramic version to understand.
In fact, I started to drastically change my mind about the Rolex Daytona replica watches in 2016, when “the Crown” introduced the version that we were all expecting, a steel watch, with a (kind-of) panda dial and, main attraction, a black ceramic bezel. Yes, I know that it still shines, yes it still has the screwed pushers, but yet, I was part of the dozens (hundreds? thousands?) of collectors who changed their minds about the Dayto. That black ceramic bezel adds some lightness, some modernity, a slightly more tool-ish and sportier style, and overall the right contrast that you expect from such a chronograph. Yet, even if I could have pushed the “buy it now button”, I would express one or two reservations about this 116500LN. The first one being about the steel bracelet, which still features polished central links – and overall, I think there’s too much metal/steel in this watch… The second reservation is about the hype that surrounds this watch, and that alone was making me doubtful. I know it is highly subjective and has nothing to do with the overall quality of the watch, yet, it was a strong deterrent. But Rolex was on its way to convince me to change my mind…
What may seem like a few minor design changes here and there actually mean a lot of serious firsts with the new-for-2017 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary model reference 126600 Rolex fake watches, making this replacement of the Sea-Dweller 4000 one of the more important releases of Baselworld 2017.
First and foremost, let’s begin with the tech specs, as with this new reference 126660, the Rolex Sea-Dweller has received five major updates: first, it has grown from 40mm to 43 millimeters wide, making for a very considerable difference between the Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary and the Submariner (which is 40mm). Second, it received a cyclops over the date, a first for a Rolex Sea-Dweller and as controversial an update as the growth in size. Third, it is now powered not by the 3135 but the updated 3235 caliber. Fourth, it has a redesigned bracelet that is now wider and makes for a more secure fit on the wrist. Last, but not least, it pays tribute to the original Sea-Dweller of 1967.
All this, of course, seriously changes the looks of the Rolex Sea-Dweller. The larger case and bracelet make it more proportionate by matching a greater diameter case with the existing thickness – that was arguably a bit disproportionate with the 40mm width of the previous 116600. Bear in mind that the thickness (no official figure on it yet but check the wristshots to get a good idea) is necessitated by the 4,000ft/1,220m water-resistance.
While in this regard the added width makes sense, the new-found cyclops – again, new for the Rolex Sea-Dweller altogether – arguably is an even more controversial decision. The Rolex Sea-Dweller, some argued, from the get-go should have been a larger alternative to the No-Date and Date Submariner models (instead, all three watches thus far had been 40mm wide) – but the cyclops, even Rolex admits, is a less obvious and more controversial addition.
A lesser-known fact is that the original Rolex Sea-Dweller of 1967 did not have a cyclops because when Rolex added it to the plexiglass front, it caused structural weaknesses in it and ultimately caused it to shatter before reaching the desired depth rating – and so the cyclops was omitted. The Rolex Sea-Dweller all until 2017 has maintained its cyclops-free looks, making yet another reason for it to be a Submariner alternative (as, clearly, not everyone is a fan of the cyclops-look). Now, in this regard, the Rolex Sea-Dweller is more in line with all other collections, with only the Deepsea now standing out from the rest, as it still does not have a cyclops over its date aperture.
The new Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 904L Oyster bracelet replica watches are fitted with an Oysterlock safety clasp, Fliplock extension system for an added 26mm of reach along with the Rolex Glidelock system for 2mm-increment fine adjustments over a distance of 20mm. Typical Rolex Sea-Dweller feats such as the black Cerachrom bezel with PVD-applied platinum numerals, flat front sapphire crystal and 1,220m of water resistance enforced by a helium escape valve inside the left side of the case (see its components below) remain present.
1978 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref. 6265 In 14k Yellow Gold
With a full 14k yellow gold case fake Rolex watches, bezel, and bracelet, this watch is truly not for the faint of heart. The contrasting black sub-dials with gilt lettering are a perfect exercise in contrast, especially against the rest of the package. The reference 6265 is set apart from its other Daytona brethren by its full metal calibrated bezel and screw-down pushers. This example is 14k yellow gold (instead of the usual 18k), indicating that it was produced explicitly for the American market.
1960s Heuer Carrera Ref. 3647N
This Carrera is not one to be missed. It features silver printing on the dial (rather than the more common white printing), gorgeous faceted lugs, and a coveted black dial, making this example one of the best that has crossed our desks in a very long time. The 35mm case and bold lugs make this watch perfect for both men and women, and it looks great on nearly any size wrist. Additionally, it houses a vaunted manually-wound Valjoux 92 chronograph movement that still operates smoothly to this day.
1940s Universal Genève Compax Ref. 22498
This is the kind of limited edition replica watches that comes around very rarely, when the stars align and a workhouse movement joins forces with a gorgeous case and an impressively preserved dial. This Universal Genève Compax ref. 22498 dates to 1942/1943, making this a very good-looking senior citizen. The delicate feuille hands and applied golden numerals are the cherry on top of the overall well-balanced dial, which has plenty of breathing room and clear indicators, despite all that it has going on.
But that is not all we have for you this week. Also available is a 1960s Sandoz Super Compressor diving watch, a 1966 Rolex Datejust ref. 1600 with original papers, a 1972 Longines Conquest monopusher chronograph, a 1979 Rolex Datejust ref. 16030 with rare “Buckley” dial, and a 1979 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date ref.1500.
Well, that changed last week when I got to spend time with some new pieces here at home, and while the shine hadn’t worn off the two ’Dwellers, I found myself coming back, again and again, to the yellow gold Daytona. It’s a decidedly modern take on the powerhouse chronograph, with its high-contrast black and gold colour scheme and blend of materials including ceramic, gold and rubber.
While the upgrade to Cerachrom is significant, that’s something we’re all pretty familiar with now; instead it’s the Oysterflex that radically changes what this watch is, and how it wears on the wrist. Oysterflex, in case you need a refresher, is Rolex’s cheap fake watches extremely over-engineered take on sporty rubber, first spotted on the Yacht-Master. The bracelet is a thin blade of titanium/nickel alloy, clad with a layer of comfy black elastomer. Further adding to the ergonomics are the clever, flexible ‘wings’ on the underside of the bracelet, ensuring a good and comfortable fit, especially in hot weather. It’s good to see that this version utilises solid gold end pieces, as the gap between bracelet and case was one of the weak points of the ref. 116655 Yacht-Master. Oysterflex turns the Daytona into a legitimately sporty/casual option, potentially opening up the Daytona to someone who wouldn’t normally have considered a gold sports Rolex.
The other point worth noting about this bracelet is that it is a far less expensive option than solid metal. And regardless of whether it’s by accident or design that this variant was released at a time when global luxury watch sales are wobbly at best, the roughly $10k price difference is nothing to be sneezed at. One more point on Oysterflex – I wonder when we’re going to see it on steel? Or will it always be a marker of more prestigious materials?
You might be worried that the combination of heavy case on light-weight bracelet Rolex fake watches results in a watch that’s top-heavy and floppy on the wrist. Thankfully it doesn’t. The 40mm case feels snug and well-balanced, due to the combination of aforementioned wings and the weighty Oysterlock clasp. And this watch is really at its best on the wrist. It’s sporty and luxurious, thanks to both the precious metal and the unmistakable Daytona DNA – but it’s also a fun watch. The case is bold and bright, as only yellow gold can be, but it manages to avoid the status statement of being a solid gold Rolex. I might have been unsure of them at first, but these fresh new Daytonas are quickly winning me over.

At present,Rolex has cooperated with many sports events,such as golf,tennis and racing. As the sponsor and cooperative partner of these sports events,Rolex is quite proud of being the driving force of the top golf tournament and have encouraged the development of gold around the world.

In the 1950s,with the continuous advancement of economic globalization,the space industry and the travel industry also have a booming development,at this point,people need a watch which can show time for them in different countries. So the watches which can used in different place have been designed.The Rolex GMT Master I series were launched in 1954. And with the development and improvement of watch industry and technology,GMT I series have been changed for several times.Until 1989,the Rolex GMT Master II has come to the public. The modified fake watches have better design and attract a great number of watch lovers.
The watches I want to introduce come from GMT Master II series. The replica Rolex GMT Master II 116719BLRO watches with black dials have many quite unique design. The most attractive part of the watches maybe the bicolourabe ceramic bezels. The combination of blue and red show us the characteristic design of Rolex. Under different light conditions,the watches may have different colors. This is the research patent of Rolex.
To match men’s wrist well,the oyster bracelets copy Rolex watches have three -piece links to adjust the watches. And the design make sure the watch can give you the most comfortable wearing experience. It is worth to mention that both of the hour hand and the pointer are painted with white luminous material,which can still be very clearly even the wears stay in a dark place.
The pace of globalization is accelerating ceaselessly,in order to adapt the development of the world better,you really need the functional fake Rolex watches to master the changing time in different time zones.
