Record Set for Most Expensive Cheap Replica Rolex Sold in Asia, at Just Over US$1m

A cheap replica watches Rolex ref. 8171 “Padellone” triple calendar sells for just over US$1m, the high point of Phillips’ evening sale.

Phillips-Rolex-8171-Padellone-steel

Rolex Milestones: 38 Legendary Watches That Shaped History, Phillips’ evening sale on November 28 was its first thematic auction in Asia, becoming a milestone in itself, just a year after another record was set for a Patek Philippe ref. 2499.

A total of HK$60.9m or US$7.84m was raised during the sale, with the cheap fake stainless steel Rolex ref. 8171 “Padellone” accounting for HK$7.88m or US$1.02m, all fees included, setting the record for the most expensive Rolex sold at auction in Asia. It went to an prominent Asian collector, who was bidding on the phone via Sam Hines, Phillips’ watch chief in Asia.

Translating as “frying pan”, the Padellone gets its name from its wide, 38mm case. The specimen at Phillips was in stainless steel, the most desirable metal of an already rare model.

Produced for a brief period in the 1950s, the steel ref. 8171 was in immaculate condition, with a pristine case and dial, explaining the million dollar price. In fact, last night’s Padellone surpassed the SFr905,000 (equivalent to US$892,000) fetched by a similar example at Phillips’ Geneva sale a year ago.

With 95% of lots sold, the auction was a smash hit, though the momentum in the room curiously appeared to peak with the Padellone, as if a spell had been broken. Several lots that came after, mostly best fake Rolex chronographs, still sold for enormous amounts of money, but modestly compared to comparable examples before.

Take for instance the Daytona “Paul Newman” ref. 6263 “Oyster Sotto”, a watch considered the most desirable of all Daytonas due to a quirk in the dial lettering. It went for HK$5.84m or US$752,776, less than the million dollars or so typical for this model (a “tropical” example sold for about US$1.96m last year).

Similarly the Daytona ref. 6263 “UAE Eagle”, named after the emblem of the United Arab Emirates on its dial, went for HK$ 1.75m or US$225,575. In contrast, a near identical watch also made for the ruler of Dubai in the 1970s sold for US$597,000 in November 2015. Best replica Rolex Watches Online.

The Sports Replica Rolex Watches We See at 2015

Every replica watches collector around the world is aware of this simple fact: what Rolex is about to release for the next edition of Baselworld is one of the best kept secrets in the world. Even if we would like to, we can’t open Rolex’s vault. Just like we want,we see the best Rolex replica watches at 2015.

Replica Rolex Daytona Stainless Steel Ceramic Bezel Ref. 116520

Last year, we already dreamed of a Replica Rolex Daytona watches us with such a ceramic bezel. We even wanted to see a vintage re-issue of the superb Rolex Replica Daytona 6263 ‘Big Red’, by cleaning the dial from the multiple inscriptions and creating a Panda layout. This was certainly a nice idea but Rolex is not known to look back in the past. Instead, the Crown tends to improve its models with slight adjustments. Ceramic is one these improvements.

Replica-Rolex-Daytona-Stainless-Steel-Ceramic-bezelWe know that Rolex loves ceramic for its bezels. Ceramic has some superior properties: being virtually scratch resistant, an ability to keep its colour forever and never fade plus the fact that it is almost impossible to exchange them yourself or with after market parts (considering the high price of such parts). Cerachrom bezels are already in use on the Daytona – on the Platinum edition or on the pink gold with leather strap edition – so it seems appropriate to imagine such a ceramic bezel on the Stainless Steel edition of Rolex’s chronograph. It should probably be the only improvement and the rest of the fake Rolex watches will certainly remain identical.

Replica Rolex Daytona Everose gold on Bracelet with Ceramic Bezel Ref. 116505

As we touched on earlier, the Rolex Replica Daytona already exists with ceramic bezels. The first one introduced was the Pink Gold ‘Everose’ edition but on a leather strap and with a chocolate brown dial. Clearly, if the stainless steel edition is potentially one of the Rolex replica watches 2015, such a Cerachrom bezel on a gold Daytona is even more probable, as Rolex is used to introduce its improvements first on gold editions, before moving to the stainless steel watches.

Rolex-Replica-Daytona-full-Pink-Gold-Everose-Ceramic-bezelFor Baselworld 2015, we expect Rolex to come with more ceramic bezels. The Replica Rolex Daytona Everose gold on Bracelet with Ceramic Bezel would be a natural addition into a collection already wide but aging. Without any other novelty than this bezel, the Daytona Everose already looks brilliant. But… We’re talking about Rolex, an extremely powerful and traditional brand, but also an unpredictable one. A fully new Replica Rolex Daytona with an additional date and a larger case is also something that could happen.

Replica Rolex GMT Master II Coke Stainless Steel Ref. 116710 RONR (Rouge / Noir)

Last year, Rolex pleased us with a superb Pepsi edition of the Rolex Replica GMT Master II. There’s no doubt about the beauty of this watch so beloved by Rolex replica watches collectors. However, the vast majority of Rolex enthusiasts are not millionaires, and a watch priced in excess of 30,000 Euro is well beyond the means of most. This is the reason why most of us will only contemplate this Pepsi instead of wearing it, due to the 18k white gold case and bracelet. Why this choice of material? Mainly because a seamless two-tone ceramic bezel is extremely difficult to achieve and thus costly. It’s thus natural to integrate it on a gold watch.

Replica-Rolex-GMT-Master-2-Coke-CeramicFor this reason, we’ve imagined another revival, the rebirth of the black and red edition of the cheap Replica Rolex GMT Master II, also known as the Coke, in a more affordable package as the case and bracelet would be crafted in stainless steel. The GMT Master II in stainless steel already exists in 2 editions, the first one with monochromatic bezel and a second two-tone edition, mixing black and blue, a.k.a Batman. This Coke edition could easily please the collectors by bringing some freshness to the Rolex 2015 Collection and be a reasonable offer in a difficult economic context.

Replica Rolex GMT Master II Root Beer Two-Tone Ref. 116713 LM (lunette marron)

Two-Tone watches are not especially popular on our old continent. Two-Tone Rolexes are another story and we can find some example of this in nearly all the collections, from the Submariner, the Yacht-Master, the  Daytona or the Datejust. It seems that Rolex is one of the few manufactures to be able to sell such combinations. The Replica Rolex GMT Master II is also available in a mix of stainless steel and yellow gold. Therefore, we’ve imagined a new edition of a two-tone Replica Rolex GMT Master II.

Replica-Rolex-GMT-Master-2If you look back into Rolex’s history, one of the most beautiful two-tone watches was the Replica Rolex GMT Master Root Beer, a watch that featured a brown dial and a both brown and gold bezel insert. Because of the love gave by Rolex’s enthusiasts to the GMT Master Root Beer, we chose to reintroduce and modernize this Rolex replica watches sale. Our Replica Rolex GMT Master II Root Beer Two-Tone Ref. 116713 LM comes with a steel and yellow gold case, a brown dial (that would probably come with a sun-burst finish) and a single tone ceramic bezel in brown, as a two tone ceramic bezel mixing brown and gold is certainly not possible yet.

5 Rolex Replica Watches Introduced at Recent Baselworlds

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).

Replica_Rolex_GMT_Master_II_500

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.

Fake Rolex’s US Rare Dials

Subtleties are what differentiate more common dials from rare variants. These differences, such as the presence of a tiny underline – things that might seem like utter minutiae for newcomers to vintage watches – dramatically increase a watch’s value. Analogies can be found in the world of coin collecting, where tiny differences such as a “double-died” date or a “P” mint mark can lead to extraordinary premiums. Understanding these nuances is what captures the minds of those passionate about vintage Rolex replica watches.

Replica Rolex Daytona

Few watches demonstrate the importance of a dial as vividly as the Replica Rolex Daytona. Launched in 1963, it has been in continuous production since, with a design that has slowly and modestly evolved from the original.

Replica Rolex Daytona

Due to its timeless styling, the Daytona has become one of the most desirable of all vintage wristwatches. The most coveted are those fitted with multi-colored or so-called Paul Newman dials. Distinguished from standard dials by their playful, art-deco fonts, stepped subdials, and a stepped outer circumference, Paul Newman-style dials were made between the mid-1960s and early 1980s. Since they were primarily available by special request, and since they sold poorly, genuine examples are quite rare.

Normal Paul Newman Daytonas command a $60,000 to $90,000 premium over a Daytona fitted with a standard dial. But buyers should beware. Due to these high values, counterfeit Paul Newman dials are abundant. Being able to recognize the very subtle details that distinguish a fake dial from a genuine dial takes significant experience, but is of vital importance if considering the purchase of one.

Replica Rolex Submariner

The Replica Rolex Submariner, introduced in 1954, is another classic and highly collectible watch that slowly evolved over its fifty years of production. Earliest examples were fitted with shiny, reflective black dials, most often using gold-colored printing.

As Rolex was maturing the product line during the first few years, the brand experimented frequently with the text printed on the dial. Items such as the style of the printed coronet and the inclusion of depth ratings or “Officially Certified Chronometer” (OCC) text changed often. These subtle nuances, easily overlooked by most people, are again of utmost importance to collectors.

Some of these experimental dials were produced in very limited quantities. When they surface today, cheap Rolex replica watches fitted with such dials command a fortune. For example, when a depth rating printed in red appears at 6 o’clock on a Big Crown Submariner, referring to the large crown found on the references 6200, 6538, and 5510, collectors will easily pay an additional $75,000 to $150,000 or more over those with a gold-colored rating.

Replica Rolex Submariner

If “SCOC” text is found on a Big Crown dial, referred to by collectors as a “four-line” dial since the printed text at 6 o’clock occupies four separate lines, knowledgeable – and well-heeled – collectors will happily pay similar premiums.

Later vintage submariners in steel, references 1680, 5512, and 5513 produced from 1967 through 1983, were fitted with matte-black dials using white printing. Dial subtleties abound even on these more common and affordable vintage Submariners. Mainly due to their relative rarity, collectors will pay a premium for early “meters first” dials where Rolex printed the depth rating as “200 m = 660 ft” as opposed to positioning the meters rating second in later dial variants.

Replica Rolex Submariner

Aging
In addition to font and text differences, due to the use of materials susceptible to aging, collectors appreciate the patina that naturally develops on the dials of vintage watches.

With vintage Rolex sport replica watches, the color of the radium and tritium used on hour markers can range from bright white to coffee brown. On rare examples, the black surfaces of both the early glossy dials and later matte dials had a tendency to fade to appealing shades of brown. Known as “tropical” dials since they’re usually found on watches that spent their lives in hot and humid climates, collectors will pay hefty premiums for those with dramatic or uniform brown colorations.

Is the new Replica Rolex Yacht-Master the most radical Rolex in years?

So long the awkward child of the Rolex replica watches collection, the Yacht-Master is reborn in 2015 as one of the coolest kids on the block, and the Crown’s first ever watch on a rubber strap. James Dowling declares it the most radical Rolex in years.

To the readers, Eric Clapton is as well known for his watch collecting as for his musical skills or his troubled personal life; yet it is difficult to realise that he only rose to prominence as a collector a dozen years ago. It was in June 2003 that Christie’s NYC held a sale which featured 25 watches from his collection which he sold to benefit the Crossroads foundation, a drugs rehabilitation charity which he had founded.

The most unusual piece was lot 181, a steel Cosmograph 6239 from 1965, with a most unusual dial, a strange combination of a “Paul Newman” dial and a conventional one. Whilst the running seconds and hour totaliser dials were like other Paul Newman dials, the 30 minute register lacked the square block indices at the five minute marks. At the very bottom of this register was a tricolour sector just outside the area between the 15 and 20 minute marks, a bizarre location for what was supposed to be a regatta timer; it would have made much more sense between the 0 and 5 minute marks.

Replica-Rolex-Christies-Yacht-master

The original Yacht Master, as owned by Eric Clapton

This wasn’t the only unusual feature of the dial; the outer red seconds track was much further from the bezel than normal. But the strangest thing about the watch was that the expected name of “Replica Rolex Daytona” was nowhere to be seen; in its place was the anachronistic model name of “Yacht Master”.

It was anachronistic because the watch dated from 1965 yet Rolex didn’t launch a watch with the Yacht-Master name until 1992 (the eagle-eyed among you will have noticed the arrival of a hyphen between the two words). In many ways the new Yacht-Master was a strange watch. Essentially a “dress” Submariner, available at first only in 18-karat gold, it was the first Rolex sports watch to be launched in gold.

The watch differed from the Submariner in several ways. Initially available with only a white dial, it looked much more “dressy” than the Submariner – even the gold version of the Sub. The bezel insert was now gold with raised polished numerals standing proud of the frosted background; it didn’t have a Fliplock bracelet with the diving suit extension, just a conventional Oysterlock one and, strangely as it used the same case as the Submariner, it was rated by Rolex as waterproof to 100m (the same as a Datejust), while the Sub could go three times as deep.

Replica-Rolex-1992_Yacht-Master-white

The first “proper” Yacht-Master (with hyphen!) from 1992

In many ways, the fake Rolex watches was a perfect example of Rolex during the Patrick Heiniger years: subdued ostentation. And it was during the Heiniger years that Rolex began to sponsor major yachting competitions, including the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (for seagoing leviathans which can cost between $5m and $100m to build) held in plutocrats playgrounds such as Newport, Rhode Island, Nice, Monaco and Porto Cuervo, further identifying the brand with money & privilege.

Then, two years later, Rolex did something with the watch which Tudor had been doing for many years; they made smaller version of it, in both 34mm (mid size) and 29mm (ladies size); like the 40mm original version, on both these new watches the bezel rotated both ways, unlike the Submariner’s one way safety system. The mid size was available with different length Oyster bracelets to enable it to be worn by either men or women. Strange as it may seem, these were the first Rolex sports models to be available in alternate sizes.

It took another four years before best Rolex replica watches made any other changes to the watch, but 1999’s Baselworld saw the introduction of the most radical version thus far; the more affordable 40mm “Rolesium” version. This was, essentially, an all steel version of the Yacht-Master, other than the bezel insert which was now platinum, as was the frosted silver dial. The other major change was to introduce oversized luminous indexes & hands, allowing greater legibility in the dark. For the first time in its seven-year existence, the Yacht-Master was desirable and no longer thought of as the answer to the question that no-one had asked.

Replica-Rolex-Yacht-Master_II_

@https://www.rolexsreplicas.org

But Rolex was not content to sit on its laurels – there was another Yacht-Master to come, and 2007’s Baselworld crowd were shocked when they saw it. It looked like a Daytona, but didn’t have sub-registers at the 3 and 9 positions, or screw-down pushers (unlike any Rolex chronograph in the last 40 years) and what was the point of the backwards bezel, where the numbers went anti-clockwise?

It was and is, in fact, a regatta chronograph with a programmable countdown timer. It was based on the in-house Rolex Daytona movement (4130) but with an additional 70 components to enable it perform its new functions, making it by far the most complicated movement Rolex had ever made.

The radical part of the watch design was to utilise the rotating bezel to alter the functions of the winding/setting crown. With the bezel in its usual position, the crown & pushers operate as on any other Daytona, but turn the bezel through 90 degrees and the cheap Roelx replica watch then enters its “programming” mode, for setting the countdown timer. The really clever feature is that once a particular countdown period has been set, the watch “remembers” it – the next time you need a countdown you will get the pre-set one, unless you reprogram the watch.

have to be honest here and say that none of the Yacht-Master versions appealed to me; they seemed to be trying too hard and I don’t own a yacht or even aspire to. But then, this year at Baselworld, Rolex brought out a new Yacht-Master which had Rolex aficionados practically drooling. It incorporated all the recent advances in Rolex technology – the larger case used on all the other sports models, the anti-magnetic Parachrom hairspring and the ceramic bezel insert.

Replica-Rolex-Yacht_Master_40

In the case of the new Rolex Replica Yachtmaster watch, however, the bezel insert is unlike any other sports model; in those watches the bezel numerals are engraved into the surface of the ceramic insert and then the base of the cavities is PVD’d in either gold or platinum. Here the numerals are raised (just like the current Yacht-Masters) from the matt base and the surface of the numerals is then given a high gloss polish. The finished look is just gorgeous. 

Moreover, for the first time a Yacht-Master has a black dial, in high gloss lacquer giving a high contrast to the oversized indexes, which use the patented Rolex “Chromalight” luminous material. The indexes themselves are contained within a thin band of rose gold; because (for the first time in a Rolex sports watch) it is only currently available in Everose gold, a special formulation created in the firm’s own foundry. The dial is set off by the single line of red, proudly stating the model’s name.

All of the above is great, but what really sets the watch apart from any other Rolex is the strap; while rubber, silicon and other compounds have become fashionable lately: as always, Rolex chose to plough its own solitary furrow. The Oysterflex band has a flexible thin metal blade made from a titanium/nickel alloy at its core; so its heart (like all Rolex replica sports watches) is a metal bracelet; but the blade is encased in high density elastomer whose matt black surface matches perfectly with the bezel.

Replica-Rolex-Yacht_Master_40_side

Recognising that not everyone has Stallone-like wrists, the watch has been introduced in both 40mm and 37mm sizes and. However, like the earlier versions, the new one is still water-resistant to only 100m. But in a triumphant year for Rolex when they replaced the less-than-attractive Day-Date II with the much more subtle 40mm version, brought out two new movements & deposed the Air King with a new range of Oyster Perpetuals, it was the new Yacht-Master which gained the most attention.

Speaking to dealers, collectors and Rolex fans worldwide, I know the Swiss Rolex replica watches has been greeted with almost unanimous acclaim and the orders have been pouring in; I await mine with barely disguised impatience.
