Now we’re cooking with gas. If you’re ready to go vintage — and embrace the service-related pains that come with owning something decades old for which parts are scarce — you can get yourself a pretty sweet deal on a perfect replica Rolex UK, relatively speaking. May we interest you in a beautiful $4,000 Oyster Perpetual on a bracelet, perhaps?
Fake Rolex Air-King Reference 5500
This has got to be one of the best buys in luxury replica Rolex, full stop. Men tend to ignore it because it’s “only” 34mm wide, but — hello — the watches being issued to American soldiers during WWII were about 32mm wide. Get over yourself. Anyway, the vintage cheap fake Rolex Air-King ref. 5500 is but one of many beautiful 34mm watches Rolex made between the 1950s and today, and you can get one in one of various colors, on a steel bracelet, for like four Gs. Astoundingly, the ref. 5500 stayed in the Swiss made fake Rolex catalog for nearly 40 years. (“Precision” on the dial designates a non-chronometer-certified movement, by the way, such as the Cal. 1520 or 1530; the later Cal. 1570 was chronometer-certified.)
Movement: Rolex Calibre 1520; 1530; 1570 automatic
Water Resistance: 100m
Replica Rolex Oysterdate Precision Reference 6694/6294
Back in the 1950s, ‘60s, and ‘70s, AAA quality replica Rolex made a series of non-chronometer-signed, entry-level, manually wound steel Oyster watches with date windows. Measuring 34mm in diameter, they’re small by today’s standards, but still make fantastic entries into the Swiss movement fake Rolex market at large, and the vintage Rolex market more specifically. As is the case with numerous vintage Rollies, they can be had with so many different dial variations that it’s difficult to develop an organized taxonomy for them, but look out for variants of the top copy Rolex ref. 6694 and the 6294, some of which have stunning “honeycomb” or “waffle” dials. (Just remember: You have to wind ‘em every day!)
Movement: Rolex Calibre 1210; 1215; 1225 hand-wound
Water Resistance: Not much anymore!
