It was the introduction of an automatic movement that made the Rolex Daytona along the road to watch-making superstars. A Zenith self-winding timepiece called El Primero powered the second generation of watches, turning the once ugly duckling of Rolex into the most coveted watch of the 1980s and 1990s.
Then, in light of Rolex’s obsession with making everything it needs in-house, the brand unveiled its first internal timing movement, the cal. 4130, marking the birth of the latest generation of watches. The ref. 116xxx series was launched in 2000 and marked the end of the first internal timing campaign for fake Rolex watches and the use of third-party suppliers.
The ref. 116500LN, released in 2016 with a black and white dial, is one of the most-watched and popular timepieces of recent years. It is now the only all-steel Rolex Daytona lineup available only with the brand’s patented ceramic bezel Cerachrom. Although there is only one stainless steel model, there are many other flavors of the Rolex Daytona replica watch.
In fact, it has the most extensive professional collection. In addition to the two-tone Rolesor, you can choose from three gold (yellow, red, and white) or even white. The dial is colorful, and since 2017, the Oysterflex rubber strap has also been heavily featured on the gold bezel with a ceramic border, making these references more sporty.
However, the modern replica Rolex Daytona is more than just a status symbol. The Carl 4130, a caliber five years in the making, is arguably the most mass-produced timepiece ever. It is a cylindrical wheel chronograph with a vertical clutch and consists of 201 components, down 60 percent from the El Primero it replaced. It’s a minimalist approach that Rolex embraces all the time; The fewer parts you have, the less likely you are to make a mistake.
The Milgauss watch was made to serve a very special audience, just like so many other Rolex tools watches. With its resistance of up to 1,000 gausses of magnetism, the replica Rolex Milgauss was served to scientists, engineers, and medical professionals who often found themselves in high magnetic fields. Magnetism is bad for mechanical movements, therefore, an anti-magnetic watch is in order when exposed to high magnetic field environments. Rolex made the Milgauss in the mid-1950s and the collection has undergone many changes after that.
However, the Milgauss ref 1019 is one model in particular, which stands out for sporting a look that’s rather different from other Milgauss watches.
The Milgauss ref. 6541 comes with the design details which we most associate with the Milgauss fake watch. There’s the 38mm Oyster case equipped with an iron shield to protect the movement from magnetic fields. Besides, there’s the honeycomb-patterned dark dial with a mix of round luminous hour markers and triangular indexes, together with the red MILGAUSS text. On top of the case is a black graduated rotating bezel.
Rolex launched the Milgauss ref. 1019 in the 1960s. However, this popular model looks so different from its predecessors that at first glance the Milgauss link is not immediately clear.
While the case size remained at 38mm, the Milgauss ref. 1019 contains a smooth steel bezel indeed of the preceding rotating black bezel. The dial, available in black or silver, did not include the honeycomb pattern and it now housed baton hour markers. Even more surprisingly, the Milgauss ref. 1019 did not consist of the signature lightning bolt seconds hand. It was replaced with a straight seconds hand with a small red arrow tip.
These design changes did not prove to be successful during the Milgauss ref. 1019’s production run. It’s no secret it was a slow-moving Rolex watch and the whole Milgauss collection was stopped in 1988.
Despite its initial unpopularity decades ago, the Milgauss 1019 now has an enthusiastic base of collectors. The Milgauss 1019’s turnaround story is one that the vintage Rolex collecting community is familiar with. In addition to the Milgauss 1019, there have been many other Rolex replica watches that were once regarded failures only to reemerge as popular and well-known vintage references.
Rolex is certainly not a trendy brand. So while many other top luxury brands have focused on producing unisex replica watches and smaller men’s watches, Rolex has gone in the opposite direction, making bigger watches for men. Let’s take a closer look at how the Rolex men’s watches are getting bigger, and how the brand is positioning itself for a more classic size timepiece
Explorer I/II, Air-King, And Sea-Dweller All Got Larger Case Sizes
Since its debut in the 1950s, the Rolex Explorer watch has featured a 36mm case. That’s why it’s always a good idea for men with smaller wrists to buy a more athletic Rolex. That all changed in 2010, however, when Rolex released a larger version of the Explorer in 39mm and halted production of the Explorer 36. More importantly, just a year later, Rolex Replica increased the size of the Explorer II case from 40mm to 42mm, and in 2011, Basel world launched the Explorer II ref. 216570.
In 2016 Rolex unveiled a bulgy Air-King watch, a watch that has used conservative 34mm oyster case throughout its long history. The air-king has grown significantly, by 6mm, and now comes with a 40mm case (not to mention a completely redesigned dial and anti-magnetic properties).
Then, at Basel world in 2017, things got really crazy, when the Sea-Dweller got bigger and went from a 40mm case to a new 43mm one. With Rolex releasing a two-tone version at Basel world in 2019, the 43mm sea dweller looks set to stay.
Rolex Offers Larger Options of the Datejust, Day-Date, and Yacht-Master
In addition to stopping the smaller version altogether and replacing it with a larger model, Rolex now offers a larger option to sit next to the traditional size. For example, there are Datejust 41 and day-date 40 collections, with larger versions of the classic proportionally Datejust 36 and day-date 36 replica watches. Let’s not forget the short-lived day-date II and Datejust II series, both 41mm men’s watches.
Notably, Rolex’s new Day-Date 36 watches, which were on display at Basel World this year, have a more feminine design, with plenty of diamond and gemstone dials. Is this a way for Rolex to introduce bigger (and more expensive) 40 Day-Date men’s watches?
Larger men’s watches have more options than ever before
Before the launch of the 44mm Yacht-Master II series in 2007, the largest Rolex watch on the market was 40mm, which belonged to a different series of Rolex’s “professional” series. Today, there are more options for men’s watches over 40mm, including dres’ watches and sports watches. It will be interesting to see how Rolex scales up over the next few years. Will the brand continue to expand in the foreseeable future? We’ll just have to wait and see.
For many luxury watch fans, some may tell you collecting vintage Rolex watches is an interesting thing. While today’s Rolex collections are very clearly separated, every model has its own unique selling points and a large of marketing materials to explain the ins and outs, it wasn’t very clear and certain of models more than fifty years ago. For example, the Rolex ref. 5500, though it is technically an Air-King, Rolex also simultaneously offered the ref. 5500 with an Explorer dial for about ten years. Now here are some points for this marvelous classical Rolex watch Explorer ref. 5500.
Rolex announced the stainless steel Air-King ref. 5500 with a 34mm case and time-only functionality in 1957. Their clean and straightforward dials were clearly marked with the “Air-King” name under the Rolex logo at 12 o’clock. On the bottom part of the dial, the Air-King ref. 5500 also included either a “PRECISION” or a “SUPER PRECISION” label depending on the caliber it ran on. The “PRECISION” text signifies Caliber 1520 within the case while “SUPER PRECISION” represents the model Caliber 1530.
In the late 1950s, Rolex replica released a version of the Air-King ref. 5500 with an Explorer dial. However, this special model is often referred to as the Explorer ref. 5500 despite the Air-King case. Thus, the Explorer ref. 5500 is also 34mm in size. This is obviously smaller than the traditional 36mm size of the Explorer ref. 6610 and the Explorer ref. 1016 watches of the same era.
The Explorer ref. 5500 owns the typical black gilt dial, the 3, 6, and 9 Arabic numerals, including the stick indexes and the inverted triangle. For this time, under the fake Rolex logo, the “EXPLORER” name is clearly on display. There are also the Mercedes-style hands—characteristic of the Explorer collection, not the Air-King model—as well as the “lollipop” seconds hand. The T<25 markings below six o’clock show that the dial uses tritium for luminescence.
Similar to the Air-King, there are both Precision and Super Precision editions of the Explorer ref. 5500. There are also some ultra-rare examples with a line under the “SUPER PRECISION” text. Moreover, sometimes the dial includes a double T<25 markings flanking the “SWISS” label.
In brief, to appeal to more younger customers, Rolex ran a little experiment by outfitting the body of the Air-King ref. 5500 with the dial of the Explorer. Because this is a special classical Rolex watch with various dials available, it’s surely an interesting piece to research, source, and for any watch collection. In fact, in 2016, Philips sold an Explorer ref. 5500 watch with the underlined “SUPER PRECISION” and double “T<25” for a whopping CHF 28,750 which owns about triple pre-sale for its price.
If you are hunting for the vintage Rolex replica watches with some different, maybe the Explorer ref. 5500 will taste you.
A white fake watch is not only good-looking for summer but also especially practical.

Moreover, a white cheap watch is extremely versatile, it can seamlessly take you from a backyard barbeque to a date night.

Rolex watches are always one of the most popular watch brands almost for all the people, and in some instances, even appreciate throughout the years – despite receiving daily use from their owners. While the Rolex replica watches can keep their value far better than the huge majority of timepieces from other manufacturers, not all Rolex watches possess the combination of traits that permit them to appreciate and serve as blue-chip investments.
While modern Rolex watches are packed with all of the newest technologies and materials, it is the vintage market where all of the record-breaking valuations occur. Rolex watches that are still in production have a finite limit for how much their values can increase, since a brand-new example of the watch can always be secured directly through an authorized dealer at its regular MSRP retail price.
Much like antiques, vintage cheap replica watches frequently derive their value from the fact that they are not in production anymore, and the surviving examples still in existence are all that there will ever be. What’s more, since many of the older Rolex watches were treated roughly and without the same degree of care and consideration that modern Rolex watches experience, many of them were lost or destroyed all over the years, further limiting the number of surviving examples in existence today.
Not every vintage Rolex watch has the potential to be worth more than a new one simply because it is old. Certain lines of fake Rolex watches are more passionately collected than others and can have much greater opportunities for appreciating. While the Rolex Datejust and President are among some of the most iconic and recognizable watches in the world, it is Rolex’s professional watch collections that generally receive the most attention and the highest bids from serious collectors.
For several Rolex’s contemporary sports/professional watches, public demand far exceeds annual production numbers for the given watch, resulting in waitlists for certain models that can sometimes reach up to several years in length. Within the past several years, we have seen this happen for several of Rolex’s stainless steel sport/professional watches, where long waitlists at authorized dealers drive prices in the pre-owned market above retail prices for brand-new examples from authorized dealers.
Much like the luxury Rolex Daytona, the all-green version of the Submariner quickly grew in popularity, and soon experienced a demand that exceeded the number of “Hulk” Submariner watches that Rolex manufactured each year. A third, contemporary, stainless steel Rolex sport/professional model that has experienced appreciation in a relatively short amount of time is the replica Rolex “Batman” GMT-Master II.
Some are not as special about pure authenticity since collector-quality vintage Rolex models become much harder to come by. These collectors just prefer the look of an astronomical vintage piece. This fuels the burgeoning market for recreations. Tempus Machina has pieces made to look like extremely coveted references from the replica Rolex’s back catalog, fashioned out of brand new pieces.
The newest example originates from Tempus Machina, which pays homage to the most desirable vintage fake Rolex models ever made. An example concluding creation is the 711Z, a tribute and a true classic from the GMT-Master collection. This is the original and most sought-after Rolex GMT-Master.
Its signature features are a Bakelite bezel, long, slim hand GMT hand, and the lack of crown guards. A “respectful fusion of the current model 116710 GMT-Master II with the iconic design of the real Bakelite 6542.” The gilt dial – actually an 18k gold-plated dial – is “fabricated using old-world techniques” according to the brand. This leads to true negative-relief gilt echoing that of early Rolex sport models. Their modern interpretation of the bakelite bezel is a polished insert sculpted from clear, scratch-resistant sapphire featuring hand-applied luminescent numerals and indicators and a “re-profiled coin edge. A lower profile Rolex crown/tube has been fitted, and a custom “small arrow” GMT hand provides another retro touch. Lastly, the crown guards have been removed.
The limited-edition replica watch will no doubt appeal to those who want the looks of a vintage watch without the maintenance issues or other pitfalls that come with wearing an older and more delicate piece. As with all customized Rolexes, the buyer needs to carefully consider if the watch will hold its value, increase or even decrease over time. While Tempus Machina may be able to recreate these magnificent timepieces we still need to consider the cost. True vintage is a safer bet, though you have to be very careful about making sure all the parts are original. There are over 50 pieces available at any given time, ranging from Rootbeer GMT’s to the ultimate holy grail, a Paul Newman Rolex Daytona. The time to make that collection is just the minute you have.
Since there are so many Rolex books published over the years. Most are way too esoteric for all but the most dedicated collectors, who obsess over the slight variations between references and wouldn’t dream of actually wearing the pieces they so assiduously acquire. So we welcome the publication of a more consumer-friendly, big format volume, an encyclopedic-feeling without being boring, gorgeously illustrated, and aesthetically pleasing enough to merit space on any coffee table.
The replica Rolex by renowned watch expert Gisbert L. Brunner will be launched by German luxury publisher teNeues next month. It starts with an introductory section covering Hans Wilsdorf and the founding of Rolex in London in 1905. It then presents significant milestones in the history of the iconic brand by year, from the very first Rolex models to the newest pieces published at Baselworld.
The text is in English, German, and French which can be a bit distracting but not to the point of annoyance. The photos are very carefully curated from the top auction houses in addition to archival material provided by the fake Rolex. The ones that are reproduced full-page are quite stunning, though the matte finish of the paper stock doesn’t always make them pop as much as we’d hope.
We love the inclusion of vintage Rolex advertisements from all decades, which are always fascinating to look at. Several chapters are devoted to landmark models like the GMT 1675, Explorer 1016, and Paul Newman Daytona replica watches. The photo editing is brilliantly made, and though some more original photography would have taken things to the next level, it more than meets the needs of what the book sets out to do.
There are some true gems to uncover, including the very first Yacht-Master prototype from 1965, based on a Paul Newman Daytona but with a jaunty nautical addition to the dial. Speaking of Newmans there are more than enough to get your heart racing here. As a matter of fact, seeing a Paul Newman Daytona next to the ugliest fake Rolex ever made, the so-called Leopard or “Tiger Lilly” Ref. 116598-SE from 2004, may give some purists an aneurysm. It’s good to be reminded that mistakes can be made, and certainly 99% of the pieces in the book are drop-dead gorgeous. So there’s just one further caveat before you pre-order your copy: even casually flipping through this fake Rolex encyclopedia from teNeues is going to make you want to buy a replica Rolex – probably even start a collection. Fortunately, we’re here to help.

When it comes to GMT Master’s none are as desirable as this watch, which is just the very Rolex ever issued of this model. Designed to be the watch of choice for Pan-Am pilots, the GMT Master became the benchmark when it comes to two-timezone watches. A title that is still as true today as it was when the watch was launched in 1954. Despite being the first, what mainly sets it apart from later versions of this model is the bakelite bezel. The numerals inside the bezel are actually filled in with Radium. The thought behind it is that even in low-light conditions you could easily check the time in both time-zones. While this must have looked amazing when these watches were first issued, it was also a cause for trouble. Bakelite is by itself already quite brittle, and combined with the radioactivity of the Radium made it that replica watches Rolex discontinued this bezel quite quickly.
Now there are tropical watches and Tropical watches. The one on this GMT-Master is clearly of the latter category, showing a very nice, even discoloration of both the dial and the bezel in a deep terracotta hue. It goes in the direction of the Root Beer GMT Master; only this watch has more of a red tone in the dial. Unique is also that the half of the bezel that was originally red turned to the same color as the originally black dial! Discoloration like this is very rare, and although this reference by itself is already quite a challenge to find in such a remarkable good condition, the dial and bezel on this particular GMT Master make it a special piece.
Especially after more than 60 years, GMT Master replica watch that still has the original bakelite bezel are very rare. What makes them even rarer is when the bezel is still in great shape and shows a very attractive discoloration like this cheap replica Rolex GMT Master does. This is an unusual occurrence that watches collectors refer to as “tropical”.
Besides, this is exactly the reason why Rolex with tropical dials commands such premiums over the same model with a regular dial. They are rare, unique, and add an extra layer of character to an already replica Rolex charismatic watch.
