At a certain point, it feels like Adam simply stopped caring about what the often cranky world of serious copy watch collectors told him he must own, and decided to just start having fun. He’d seen some of the custom pieces the folks at Artisans de Geneve have done, and one night while laying in bed, he decided to email them out of the blue with the idea for his own perfect replica Rolex Daytona.
After months of emails and Zoom calls, Adam and AdG founder John Isaac came up with the idea of a single gold 1:1 fake Rolex Daytona with screw down pushers and white, Paul Newman-style dial – similar to the 6263 featured above – but with their own tweaks. You see skeletonized sub dials, and a WHITE bezel. On top of that, the entire dial and bezel are luminous, so they light up in the dark.
Adam describes this project and the resulting Rolex replica for sale as one of the most rewarding things he’s done, and in many ways, it flies in the face of all the traditional watch nerdery that he’s subscribed to for so long – and that’s probably why it feels so good. This Swiss movement fake Rolex is his, in every single way, and it was born out of things that he loves for his own reasons. And there’s something beautiful about that.
Replica Rolex Daytona ‘John Player Special’ ref. 6241
If you’re at all a fan of vintage Formula 1 cars, you’ll undoubtedly be familiar with the iconic black and gold livery of the 1970s Lotus 77 driven by Mario Andretti and Gunnar Nilsson. Whether or not you agree with tobacco advertising in sport, the colours inspired by John Player Special cigarettes were a much more enduring success than the car itself, and thus the reference 6241 Daytona in yellow gold with a black dial was nicknamed. This is one of the holy grails of rare Rolex replica watches for sale, with fewer than 300 6241 Daytonas produced in gold and only a small portion of them given black dials. This Swiss made copy Rolex is in immaculate condition considering its 1969 birthday, and has been put up for auction by its original owner.
Fake Rolex GMT-Master ‘Captain Warren’ ref. 6542 Every vintage watch tells a story, but sadly not every story is very well kept. That bargain you snagged at a garage sale could very well tell a story as impressive as this cheap replica Rolex GMT-Master from 1958, but you need to pay the big bucks to know for sure. Of the first generation of Rolex GMT-Master fake watches online, the reference 6542, this model is quite a significant one. Owned and worn by Captain Clarence Warren Jr. who piloted multiple United States presidents around the world, this has to be one of the most famous 6542s in existence. The case is in great condition, while the dial, Bakelite bezel and hands have acquired a rustic patina.
Copy Rolex GMT-Master ‘Blueberry’ ref. 1675 You could not name a more iconic GMT watch than the perfect replica Rolex GMT-Master, which makes rare references even more mouthwatering. The reference 1675 was in production between 1959 and 1980, signifying its popularity and success, but even then limited editions were not common for best 1:1 fake Rolex. The ‘Blueberry’ was most likely made for middle eastern armed forces in the 1970s, and this example with its Arabic date wheel backs up that story. The all-blue bezel is incredibly vibrant after all these years, even when the luminous markers have turned a pleasing pumpkin orange with age.
