At this level, many collections will have a perfect replica Rolex slot, and I struggled with how to fill mine – so many options. As Sarah said, “there may be no human experience as satisfying as looking down at one’s wrist and beholding a luxury fake Rolex Day-Date.”
I guess that’s true, but perhaps I’m more of a “simple things” kinda guy than Sarah “Tutti-Frutti” Miller, because to me the simple pleasure of a steel Oyster case in 34 or 36mm is much more enduring than that of a best 1:1 replica Rolex Day-Date. So I decided to spend my money on an early Datejust. Sure, I thought about spending more on a 1016 – hell, Rich told me to buy a mighty 1016, though he did deliver this advice while checking the time on his own (I must admit, beautiful) gilt-dial AAA super clone Rolex 1016. So, grain of salt.
I mentioned the 6062 at the beginning, and ’50s Rolex is my favorite Rolex replica for sale, so I wanted something from this era, when Rolex figured out the perfect balance between sport and elegance. Why not an early Datejust, where it (kind of) all began for modern high quality fake Rolex? I’d want a steel one, and with this type of cash I’m going to wait around for one with a bracelet, perfect patina, an original roulette date wheel, and a bit of extra sauce, like a honeycomb dial or red “Datejust” text, and if I’m lucky, box and papers.
