1. Replica Rolex Sky-Dweller
Introduced in 2012, the Replica Rolex Sky-Dweller was part of the rumor mill long before its actual launch. However, no one (outside Rolex) expected the watch that Rolex showed on that very first day of Baselworld 2012. Its ingenious Ring Command bezel system enables the wearer to control the functions of the Rolex fake watches (date, local time, and reference time) in combination with the crown. This annual calendar watch was introduced in white gold, yellow gold and Everose gold.
2. Replica Rolex Day-Date
When Rolex updated the case diameters of its Datejust and Day-Date models from 36 mm to 41 mm, I didn’t expect them to introduce a new line of 36-mm Replica Rolex Day-Date watches. Last year, Rolex presented several Day-Date models on leather straps. Whether these are targeted only at women or also at men is not clear, but they have been provided with beautiful dial colors and matching straps. In all other areas, the watches remained unchanged compared to the original Day-Date.
3. Replica Rolex Yacht-Master II in Steel
Baselworld 2013 also saw the introduction of the Replica Rolex Yacht-Master II in stainless steel. Although the all-gold and Rolesor (bi-color) models had already been on the market for some time, Rolex decided that it was time to offer this watch in its famous 904L stainless steel. This model also features the Ring Command system, to control the regatta-countdown timer function.
4. Replica Rolex Daytona in Platinum
Whether it was an official anniversary edition, or just a new variation to an existing model, the platinum Replica Rolex Daytona was introduced in the same year that this iconic watch celebrated its 50th anniversary. Perhaps the most sought-after chronograph in the world, the Daytona is now available in a platinum case for those lucky enough to afford one. The blue dial and chocolate-colored subdials and ceramic bezel make a nice combination.
5. Replica Rolex GMT-Master IIBLNR
This watch for travelers and pilots was introduced in a blue-and-black combination in 2013. Although many expected, and perhaps hoped for a “Pepsi” model (blue and red), Rolex Replica GMT-Master II decided it was time to show the world its new blue-and-black ceramic bezel. To match the bezel, the GMT hand was done in blue as well (the black-bezel model has a green GMT hand). Although I have to admit I shrugged my shoulders at first when I saw this watch in the display, I have to admit that I am starting to like its look. For those who don’t know, the BLNR stands for Bleu and Noir (blue and black).
The big question for Baselworld 2014 is — of course — What innovations (if any) will Rolex come up with this year? There are a lot of Rolex replica watches fans out there still hoping for that “Pepsi” GMT-Master II or a “real” successor to the good ol’ Sea-Dweller, apart from the huge Deepsea model.
