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.

Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual Watches New For 2015 Hands-On

If you can imagine Rolex as Ben and Jerry’s, then the Oyster Perpetual is vanilla ice cream. It’s the building block from which models like the Rolex Submariner and Rolex Daytona have evolved. For 2015, Rolex has created a new 39mm version of the cheap replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches, offering a slightly larger iteration of one of their entry-level models.

The new 39mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual joins the 26, 31 and 34mm versions that were announced last year. Being the same size as the Rolex Explorer, the 39mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual uses the same movement, Rolex’s calibre 3132. It’s a simple but robust automatic movement offering three hands, no date, and COSC certification.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a faithful but modern take on the Rolex Oyster model that Rolex launched in 1926. The Rolex Oyster was, quite famously, the first waterproof watch in the world. That lineage can be seen in the Rolex Oyster Perpetual’s straightforward and practical design. Legibility is strong and the dial design offers nothing more than is necessary to display the time.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual (reference 114300) can be had in your choice of three dial colors – dark rhodium, red grape, or blue. If it weren’t for the cheap fake Rolex watches red grape and blue options, we would forgive you if you were less than enthused by the Rolex Oyster Perpetual. While I’d assume that the grey dial will be popular, it doesn’t have the same character or presence offered by its more lively and colorful siblings. For my tastes, the blue version is the one to have, with a excellent mix of everyday wearability with a certain added charm. It’s still vanilla, but maybe with a few sprinkles on top.

Each dial color has its own accent color that flanks the markers with blue accents on the grey dial, red accents on the red grape dial, and green accents on the luxury replica Rolex watches blue dial. For a watch with such a reserved and non-embellished overall design, this pop of color is a welcome addition.

All three versions come on a solid 904L steel bracelet with a folding Oysterclasp and are priced from 5,400 CHF. In many ways, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual line is the most Rolex model in the modern Rolex line up. Just as there is something appealing in the pure and simple nature of vanilla ice cream, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual’s design is basic, almost elemental. For someone who wants a remarkably well-made but entirely unassuming Rolex, the new fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches online offers something its more complicated and embellished siblings cannot – pure everyday Rolex.

Review First Replica Rolex Oyster Watches From 1926

What you see are the two versions of the very first Replica Rolex Oyster watches, in other words, the world’s first water-resistant timepiece. It was proven on the wrist of a swimmer, and when it was released in 1926 it was a rather big deal. The origin of the Oyster name is rather straightforward, borrowed from the sea-dwelling mollusk of the same name, and has been a hallmark of Rolex ever since. In fact, all cheap Swiss Rolex replica watches produced today are technically in the Rolex Replica Oyster collection, sharing the first Rolex Replica Oyster watch’s focus on durability and water resistance.

Replica-Rolex-Oyster-1926-watchRolex was a young brand when the original Replica Rolex Oyster watch was released, but it was not until later in Rolex’s history did the brand focus on the Rolex Replica Oyster concept almost exclusively. Hans Wilsdorf, German born and living in London, entered the watch industry in 1905 doing timepiece distribution in Britain and the British Empire. He went on to produce his own watches a few years later, and the Rolex name came about in 1908. In about 1920 he moved to Bienne, Switzerland to open Montres Rolex S.A., which is when everything really begun. Just six years later the brand’s hallmark product family would be released.

One thing is notably absent from the 1926 Replica Rolex Oyster watches sale. The trademark crown logo is missing. Rolex didn’t come up with the crown logo until the early 1930s, but you can see that on one of the pieces the Rolex name was presented in the same font and style that it is in today. You’ll also notice the fluted bezel, which is also a hallmark of Rolex design on today’s Datejust and Day-Date models (among others) This was part of the patented water-resistance system employed in the Rolex Oyster. Hermetically sealed, the Rolex Oyster was innovative not just for being able to be taken into the water, but for resisting a range of liquids and particles such as dust from entering the case. The system was all about screwed-down elements. The original Replica Rolex Oyster watch was innovative because the case back, bezel, and crown were all screwed-down. The fluted bezel was an important part of this because Rolex developed special tools which allowed them to tightly seal up the cases.

A further development that helped increase the safety of the movements was in the later Rolex Replica Oyster Perpetual watch. In 1931 Rolex developed a module to fit over their movements that offered automatic winding, and thus the “Oyster Perpetual” was born. This new term joined Rolex Oyster and today is on the dial of all Rolex watches. This is good to know in case you’ve ever wondered why “Oyster Perpetual” is on the dial of every Rolex watch sold these days. Automatic winding was a benefit to water resistance and other durability matters because the wearer did not have to unscrew the crown and wind the watch manually, thus opening up a small area of the case. The Perpetual rotor (as it was called) allowed the watch to be wound merely by wearing it.

Replica-Rolex-Oyster-1926-watch-2It is also worth mentioning an extra added item of cheap replica watches history that is related to the cushion-shaped case of the original Rolex Replica Oyster. Does it look familiar? Rolex went on to increase the size of the case and develop a diving watch for Italian instrument company Panerai. The now iconic Panerai case was actually a Rolex creation. If you put a modern Panerai next to this small Replica Rolex Oyster you will see exactly where its design DNA came from. While so much of what Rolex is today evolved in the first few years of the brand, the traditionally-styled dials and cases of the first Replica Rolex Oyster watches are a thing of the past. They are rather typical of watches from that era. In fact, the wristwatch as a popular consumer good wasn’t even really a decade old at that time. What Hans Wilsdorf understood from a very early point in the industry is what consumers wanted, as well as needed. It is interesting to see these first Replica Rolex Oyster watches and see not only how far we’ve come, but how much of Rolex’s heritage really began from that start.
