Overlooked Vintage Replica Rolex References

In the world of vintage watches, it goes without saying that some of the most coveted, storied, and documented pieces were originally produced by Rolex. Their iconic and historically significant collections have undisputedly transcended the watch collecting community, and have now surely become household names. Now, while watches like the 6263 Daytona, 5513 Submariner, and 1675 GMT Master may be laudable, beautiful works of functional and durable art, they often overshadow some seriously intriguing and downright gorgeous references. For this edition of Face Off, we’re shedding light on the unsung and underappreciated vintage Rolex references, that you really ought to take a closer look at.

cheap fake Rolex Turn-O-Graph Ref. 6202

First up is a watch that’ll have you checking your glasses, and second guessing yourself: the Rolex Turn-O-Graph (also released in smaller quantities as the “Monometer”), reference 6202. Although it may at first appear to be an early no-crown guard Submariner with a funky looking aftermarket bezel, the truth of the matter is that the 6202 precedes the Sub, and ultimately had a large influence on the dive watch we know and love today. Rolex originally introduced the 6202 in 1953 at Basel World as their first watch to use a rotary chronometer bezel, which was aimed at businessmen wanting something a little more on the sporty side. It would then be overshadowed by the first Submariner Ref. 6204 later on, which was for the most part identical.

Assessment: It’s an overall more interesting piece than a Submariner, and while it doesn’t share the Sub’s rich history, it’s influence on what is now arguably the most iconic dive watch ever made is astonishing. Today, examples can be had for far less than shockingly similar Submariners, with beautiful details like honeycomb dials. Pictured above is an excellent example from Rolex Passion Market: sale fake Rolex Turn-O-Graph.

Rolex Explorer Ref. 6610

The Rolex Explorer is without a doubt the king of all field watches. With it’s perfect proportions, extreme legibility, and impressive history, you’ve got a recipe for success. When looking into vintage Explorer references, the 1016 (the most well known Explorer reference produced for the longest amount of time) will always surface. It’s a terrific choice, but if you’re after something that little bit rarer and more unique, the 6610 is the one for you.

Assessment: The 6610 introduced what is now the most recognizable form of the Explorer, and while slightly pricier than a 1016, you’ll getting a much more interesting reference, that you’ll be sure to see less of in the wild. Just be careful if on the hunt for one, as redials and frankens are abundant — stick with the most trusted dealers.

Lastly, the popularity of early model Datejusts and Bubblebacks have significantly increased over the past 10 years. Collectors have taken a particular liking to “Ovettone” (Italian for big egg) variants, and have been paying in excess of $20,000 for especially exceptional examples. One reference that is often overlooked is the 6028, and being a no-date reference, it wears extremely well on the wrist, with symmetry, simplicity, and legibility galore.

Assessment: It may not be as popular as it’s date-bearing cousins, but we here at Wound For Life can definitely see it’s desirability and value increasing down the road. Plus, it’s a watch that will play nicely in nearly any situation, from daily wear to special occasions.

First Impression: Cheap Replica Rolex Day Date 40 Watches

For close to six decades, the Rolex Day Date has been regarded as an international symbol of success and iconic watchmaking, so much so that it’s been notably referred to as the “President” for its association with US presidents. While what is arguably the brand’s flagship model has seen several celebrated incarnations over the years, many would agree that the more recent examples have been somewhat bloated in appearance. That is why this week at Baselworld 2015, we were rather excited to be introduced to the newest one, the cheap replica Rolex Day Date 40. Although the Day Date II’s successor might not be viewed as a significant update by the masses, we feel as if it represents a step in the right direction for this line, with some horological firepower to boot.

Let’s begin with what you’ll ultimately notice first, the new case. With the oversized watch trend starting to wear off, Rolex took note and decreased the case size to a slightly smaller 40mm (hence the name Day Date 40). Now while a single millimeter is by no means a drastic reduction, the watch wears considerably smaller then it’s predecessor due to a few addition alterations. My main gripe with the Day Date II was that because of the wide, medallion-esque bezel and the drastically tapering lugs, it was a very flashy piece, and definitely didn’t go unnoticed. On the 40, Rolex toned it down through the use of a narrower bezel similar to what’s used in previous 36mm executions. All in all, the watch has a much more understated aesthetic, that we feel is synonymous with some of our favorite President references.

As for the dials, Rolex unveiled various offerings, designed with an obvious attention to detail. Our personal favorites include the blue option with laser-etched crosshatching as seen on the platinum example, along with the silver dial featuring four sections of perpendicular lines offered in white gold. The laser detailing doesn’t necessarily stand out in a bold fashion, but it creates enough of a intricacy to be appreciated. Some may call these dial options “safe”, but you really can’t argue with the timeless nature of the announced variants. Having said that, we’re sure that several more dials will be offered in the near future without an official announcement, as luxury replica Rolex watches has been known to do.

In addition to the conservatively designed case and dial options, sale replica Rolex rolled out their all-new caliber 3255, that we’ll see within the watch. With 14 new patents, this fully certified movement is certainly no slouch due to it’s increased power reserve of 70 hours, an all new efficient “Chronergy” escapement, and a thinner mainspring barrel. As a result of that last mentioned update, a larger mainspring can now be accommodated, allowing for an increased power reserve. Furthermore, the caliber 3225 could possibly be one of the brand’s most thoughtfully finished movements, with a bevy of beveled edges, and a notable amount of exposed components.

Overall, we’re extremely satisfied with this announcement for the various aforementioned reasons. exact fake Rolex wacthes is bringing the Day Date line roughly back to the original design that we’ve come to love, and we’re sure the added bonus of an improved caliber won’t go unnoticed by the horologically inclined. Is it the most stand-out announcement of the show thus far? By no means. Is it a sobering and sensible step in the right direction for the line? You bet. Whether or not it matches the vibe of their other Basel releases, that’s for you to decide.
