Demand for Rolex replica watches online is on the rise as the super-rich shrug off the inflation crisis gripping Britain.

Watches of Switzerland, the UK’s largest seller of luxury fake watches, said that waiting lists are growing longer because buyers are overlooking a jump in selling prices.

This has meant growing wait-lists for the pieces. Watches of Switzerland said overall sales rose by a fifth to £1.5bn in the year to the end of April. The company’s share surged almost 10pc, making it the biggest riser on the FTSE 250.

It is the latest sign that the super rich are continuing to spend despite rising prices for many of the most in-demand items. According to watch specialist Luxe Watches, some perfect replica Rolex watches are selling for more than 11pc more in the UK this year compared to last, with the price for the Swiss super clone Rolex Day Date White Gold model rising to £35,000 – £31,450 in early 2022,. according to the website Luxe Watches.

Meanwhile, other luxury super clone watches for sale have also been in high demand. Separately on Thursday, Swatch Group, the owner of Omega, said its revenue could hit record highs this year, amid a boom in sales in China and the US. Average sales per store were up 30pc across the world, Swatch said. Shares were up 5.6pc in the Swiss manufacturer.

It follows the lifting of Covid restrictions across the world, which has sparked a surge in spending on luxury goods – particularly among Chinese shoppers. LVMH earlier this year became the first company in Europe to hit a $500bn (£382bn) market value, thanks to significant appetite for its brands including Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior.

Spending on high quality replica watches, in particular, has been on the rise amid mounting concerns of an economic downturn, since some investors regard certain watches as almost recession-proof.

Burlington Arcade dealer David Duggan told the Telegraph late last year that the aaa quality fake Rolex Daytona was a good example of this.

“It may carry a big premium, but over a decade or so, it will still rise in value. It has been this way since 1989. Prices dropped slightly in 2008, but they quickly bounced back. What other product has kept its premium for 33 years?”

Watches of Switzerland chief executive Brian Duffy earlier this year said: “Swiss movement replica Rolex are seen as a logical one to invest in, with inflation.

“These are products which last forever and they’re more likely to appreciate than depreciate.”

How to buy a high end replica Rolex, according experts

Anyone keen on buying a perfect fake Rolex who has stepped into a retailer lately believing they might be able to walk out with a brand new watch is likely to have discovered that they might as well have asked for a dodo egg.

The best quality replica watches on display are almost invariably marked ‘for exhibition only,’ and instead of being able to hand over your cash and leave with your dream timepiece – as you might well have been able to do as little as five years ago – you’ll probably just be marked down as another person showing ‘an expression of interest’. So, armed raid aside, how do you go about actually getting your hands on a luxury replica Rolex? Allow us to help.

The legendary Rolex waiting list
‘An expression of interest’ is 1:1 replica Rolex-speak for being put on a waiting list. And by the time your name gets somewhere near the top (if it ever does) you’ll probably be a good deal older than you are now. But while the situation has been frustrating for anyone coveting a brand-new aaa quality fake Rolex, it has provided a turbo boost to sellers of pre-owned and vintage models.

David Silver, whose father John founded London’s Vintage Watch Company more than 25 years ago, has observed first-hand how some buyers have simply resigned themselves to the idea that they won’t be able to buy new and have instead decided to take their cash to him.

The Burlington Arcade boutique maintains a stock of around 2,000 Rolex replica watches online – any one of which is available to buy on the spot. “The ‘expression of interest’ situation at Swiss movement copy Rolex has certainly helped our business,” he says.

“Many people feel it is never-never list in as much as they will never reach the top, and cheap super clone Rolex does seem to have adopted a profile-based process similar to that operated by other luxury brands such as Hermès and Chanel.

“In other words, you’re very unlikely to get much unless you have already spent heavily with the retailer in question, be that on other watches or on jewellery.”

Silver says one of the ‘charms’ of Rolex replica for sale used to be its combination of quality and accessibility – but due to increased demand, the latter is now hard to honour.

    Marking a big occasion
    “There was always a bit of a wait for the status pieces such as steel top quality copy Rolex Daytonas and so on, but if you wanted anything from the regular range you used to be able to get hold of it pretty easily.

    “Now that has changed, we have adapted our vintage offerings from being 30-plus years old to 20-plus,” Silver adds. “A lot of customers are also coming to us looking for birth year watches to give their sons or daughters as 18th or 21st birthday gifts.”

    Silver says the recent move to smaller watches has also helped the business, with men once again being happy with the 36mm cases of many high quality fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual of the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s.
