The two stainless steel Rolex Daytona watches are well-known on the market; there is a white dial and a black dial, both with ceramic bezels. Due to the huge demand, and they continue to rise sharply in the secondary market, selling much more than their retail prices.
But people tend to forget about the many other Daytona watches, which often come in gold and two-tone versions. These fake watches have been made by Rolex for years. Stainless steel watches are great and there are some “unusual” items in the personal collection, so we’ve compiled a list of current and recently discontinued Rolex replica models that you might want to look at.
The watch looks familiar. There are good reasons for this; Reference 116506 is made of white metal and ceramic bezel. This special Rolex Daytona is made of pure platinum with a chocolate brown ceramic ring and matching embellishment. While the precious metal Daytona can be an acquired taste, it’s hard not to love the platinum version with its crisp ice blue dial. While chocolate-brown doesn’t look like an obvious ice blue combo, it matches the dial perfectly. Not particularly common, these platinum Daytona watches have the impression of a “mic drop”, but this fake watch is very tasteful.
Sitting at the other side of the Daytona stainless steel material spectrum is the sturdy gold reference 116528. Rolex doesn’t make as many replica watches with white dials — not to mention sports watches with white dials. The warm 18-karat gold case and bright white dial are a classic combination. Although this piece was actually produced in the early to mid-2000s, its overall aesthetic is completely timeless, and it can be easily manufactured decades after (or before) its actual production date.
Going back to the more subtle end of the spectrum, this black dial 116509 is a charming platinum Daytona model that looks great when you think it’s now trading in Daytona steel models that cost more than $10. As with other examples of this reference, the 116509 is designed with Arabic numerals and sports bright red accents to make this you’re favorite. It is again the most recent/current model, powered by the 4130 movements, the same as the 116500LN, except without a ceramic bezel.
Skip the ceramic bezel, but stick with precious metals, and this variant of 116508 is just “under the radar.” Champagne/gold dial is sure to be back in favor these days, and Rolex seems to be ahead of the curve on this issue. In fact, if memory is correct, they’ve been using gold/champagne dials for decades. Either way, the gold configuration, paired with a black dial and red accessories, makes the piece more retro and makes it hard to believe that it is actually a reference to modern Daytona.
The United States Army Air Corps standardized paint colors to be used on military assets in 1939. The Joint Aircraft Committee’s Subcommittee on Standardization elected to implement the ANA color standard. This color standard created ANA 616, otherwise famous as “Desert Sand.” Like olive drab, this color is used to define military equipment, and for the general public, it is instantly recognizable as a purely tactical and functional color.
Not surprisingly, Bell & Ross chose the color scheme for the dial of the new BR V2-92 sports watch. The company has made a name – and defined an identity – with huge square-cased watches designed after cockpit instrumentation. But the V2-92 is nothing like those – instead, it considerately straddles several traditional fake watch categories. The V2-92 has the look of a field watch, the bezel of a dive watch, and the personality of something straight from Operation Desert Shield.
There’s a certain balance to this watch that’s difficult to come by; the models typically connected with Bell & Ross don’t quite exemplify the same sort of utilitarian design that the V2-92 gets right. It’s a total military mash-up, with design elements borrowed from field watches and dive watches packaged in a thin case.
The waterproof performance of 100 meters makes it closer to the field watch site than the diving watch camp, and the two-way watch ring can not provide the same safety as the one-way watch ring, but I don’t think this replica watch is suitable for diving. It’s a universal watch; The jack of all trades does one thing well at the expense of his everyday watches. I don’t think the target population will lose any points because there’s a one in a million chance that a bezel will be knocked off with a few clicks underwater.
While the enthusiast world might have trouble with date wheels, the Swiss industry as a whole just doesn’t seem to want to let them go. Naturally, there is a date wheel on this model, but it’s integrated so carefully that it shouldn’t bother even the most cranky no-date purist. The date wheel is color-matched, and this isn’t a standard black or white-dialed watch, either. It’s a very specific hue of military beige, and the window is rather small. Besides, these fake Rolex watches strike an admirable balance between typically competing camps.
The V2-92 has the same typographic design as other fake Bell & Ross watches, but it looks softer, and the dome crystals deform and diffuse it, reducing the boldness of some of the more recognizable models in the collection. The bracelet also has a polished central link. It balances the core tool of watch aesthetics, but it’s also something you’ll never find on a watch, actually designed for the modern military.
For those who are interested in vintage replica watches, the problem that always arises when evaluating potential purchases is over-polishing, which is the main cause of thin lugs. This is no doubt a major topic when it comes to vintage Rolex, but it affects most fake watches that have been polished over the years.
On the first check, the first thing the buyer notices is not the watch lugs, but the hands, perhaps the crystal. However, these lugs have a lot of forensic evidence about what happened to the watch over the years and are the most important part of the comfort and stability of the replica watch.
Comfort, because they are designed to bend in a certain way to “embrace” the wrist. Stability, because the lugs are where the bracelet connects to the watch, and the spring bars hold the watch on the wrist, keeping it away from the ocean floor.
In fact, thinner lugs are impossible to make that, so your watch won’t stay on your wrist and it feels uncomfortable. So why is it important to talk about collectible Rolex? To this end, we must discuss the polishing process.
When a replica watch is polished by a local jeweler or the manufacturer itself, polishing a watch is the process of removing a thin metal layer from the fake watch. If you have a deep scratch on the metal, the only way is to remove the metal around the scratch, leaving a smooth surface.
See if the edges are very sharp and precise, especially on the bevel (top of the lug). Over the years, rounded corners on corners and edges are a very visible sign of many polishes, making collectors less interesting later. As a general rule, if you are going to sell a watch, do not polish it in advance to make it look more beautiful. Suppose the buyer wants it unpolished and can provide polishing if they wish.
To see if the side of the watch has thinned, see the reference picture for the time when the metal is under the bezel. Like the thin lugs, the thin case is not desirable for all the usual reasons and is not technically resistant to water. Look where I’ve marked the Rolex hulk down there
Based on all of this, the case’s lugs can tell us a lot about what happened before the watch arrived. Part of the joy of appreciating any dream clock is its precision; perfect angle and polished bevel as well as thickness matching sturdy lugs. To understand the mindset of vintage watch lovers, these elements can be as important as a good deal and the original hand. In fact, the history of scratches is always better than mediocre polishing before selling the replica watch. Then, they can make up for decades of history of the people who wore it, and what they did while wearing it and appreciating it. Who would have thought of them?
Many times, the most important and reliable things in life are not the most exciting or discussed. Many of these items are so perfect at performing their basic tasks that their designs have hardly changed over the years, and they have rarely been the subject of heated discussion among collectors and enthusiasts.
For Rolex, no watch in their collection captures that spirit better than the Datejust. While some of Rolex’s most famous watch collections are characterized by constant evolution and radical design improvements, Rolex’s evolutionary history is consistent with Datejust, and this replica watch is the mainstay of Rolex’s catalog introduction since the first three-quarters of nearly a century.
In 1945, Rolex made its debut to mark the company’s 40th anniversary. At the time, the Rolex Datejust was the world’s first self-winding watch with a date window that switched automatically at midnight. While this feature may seem trivial now, it was Datejust that first introduced it and forever set the standard for complicated dates on a watch.
The Rolex Datejust replica has remained in continuous production since its initial introduction, and it has appeared with a wide choice of different case sizes, metal options, dials, bezels, and bracelets. While the Datejust continues to evolve as Rolex continues to improve and refine its design, the modern Datejust watch is very similar to the watch that Rolex first introduced to the public nearly 25 years ago.

In this version of our range check the underestimate watch, let’s take a look at the Turn-O-Graph. It has long been overshadowed by more representative stable partners, but in recent years (paradoxically) it has gained a certain reputation precisely because it has long been at a disadvantage in the Rolex replica lineup. Collectors with drawers full of familiar crown watches eventually turned their attention to lower-key, anonymous products and snapped up a marginalized watch from what is arguably the world’s best-selling and most popular luxury watchmaker with a genuinely novel value that sets them apart.
Introduced in 1953, The Turn-O-Graph was the first Rolex watch with a rotating ring. In fact, the concept had been around for decades, with the original patent granted to Philip Van Horn Weems, an American naval officer, and inventor, in 1929. Since the mid-1930s, the concept has been effectively applied to the replica watches of many pilots. Rolex itself created a prototype with this feature in 1937, called Xerography, which is the brand’s only ever counter chronograph.
Turn-O-Graph has always been a useful component for a variety of applications, with its novel bezels relegated almost immediately to second-tier status because of (another irony) poor scheduling. During Rolex’s true golden age, it was bad luck that also saw some legendary names such as submarine, GMT-Master, explorer, and date.
While it may have beaten out the first two ideas of spinning around, both the dive watch and the traveler’s watch have a distinct identity, which is missing from Turn-O-Graph. Even more unfair is that the first model is almost identical to the submariner in appearance.
As a tool watch, its performance was surpassed by Sub and the GMT, and it was not as elaborate or sophisticated as the President.
The ref. 6202’s contest ended in late 1954 with only about 1000 pieces. They include a small number of honeycomb dials, as well as steel and gold dials, making them the brand’s first Rolesor sport replica watch. Its replacement, ref. 6309, marks a complete departure from the Submariner -style book that became part of the Datejust family.
Internally, the first Cal. 743 was replaced with the Cal. A260 to drive these features. Interestingly, however, there is no name for Turn-O-Graph. That said, the bezels- now a new type of decorative painting known as “engine turn” – can still be rotated and marked every 5 and 10 minutes, instead of every minute as before.
In the era before digital timing, the turn-o-graph innovative spin loop was the easiest and fastest way to measure elapsed time, so it was expected that it would eventually be used in military applications. Soon after, a ref. 6309 found itself on the wrist of a pilot from the USAF Air Demonstration Squadron, nicknamed Thunderbirds. Because minute and second timing were crucial to the world’s first supersonic aerobatic team, the Turn-O-Graph was quickly adopted by the unit and became their official timing tool.
Swiss watchmaker, TAG Heuer has a long tradition of collaborating with influential groups, and they recently partnered up with the avant-garde Japanese streetwear guru, Hiroshi Fujiwara, founder of fashion label Fragment. The 54-year old, former DJ and now musician, producer, and designer is a big vintage watch fan, a passion he’s indulged in for more than three decades.
Together, they have created the Carrera Fragment, officially called the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Fragment Limited Edition by Hiroshi Fujiwara. Even though the ‘Godfather of Harajuku’ may be best known for his experimental spirit, the replica watch that has created is a slightly modified redesign of the original ref. 2447NT from 1963 – a fitting celebration for Carrera’s 55th birthday.
The 2447NT is one of the most iconic vintage watches. Released the same year as a certain Daytona, the two fake watches actually have some similar elements, such as their Singer-made dials and Valjoux-based movements. They both have the exact same baton-style hour markers and tri-complex layout for the sub-dials. The main difference lies in the bezels, the Rolex model famously engraved its bezel with a tachymeter scale, the Heuer omitted the surround altogether to make a cleaner, dressier look.
It may not be as commonly recognized, but the Carrera 2447NT carries great significance in the history of both fake TAG Heuer and sports watches in general. Wisely, with all that legacy to work with, Fujiwara has only altered a few elements, in a way to enhance the retro appeal of his subject, rather than overpower it totally.
Put the two replica watches side by side, perhaps the most notable difference is the size. The first one is 36mm in diameter, the new one has a more 21st century friendly, 39mm case diameter. Except this, everything is pleasantly similar, from the beautifully sculpted and faceted lugs to the large unguarded crown flanked by two simple pushers, all put into an elegantly-curved stainless steel case.
What protects the black opaline dial is a vintage domed sapphire crystal, with an anti-reflective finish on both sides. The rhodium-plated hour and minute hands are filled with faux-aged, beige Super LumiNova, as are the tiny square hour markers. In fact, the only thing that differentiates it from the original is a pair of very unobtrusive insignia – the ‘Fragment’ name printed in small letters between the 4 and 5 o’clock markers, and the brand’s logo (which some likened it to two lightning bolts humping), placed right below the 12 o’clock.
The minimalist decor is a clear sign of Fujiwara’s devotion to the Carrera, and earlier this year, Fujiwara teamed up with Bamford to launch a limited edition Zenith El Primero watch.
The popular replica Patek Philippe is doubling down on its aviation-inspired collection when the debut of the first Pilot Travel Time was still a controversial one. In 2019, the new Patek Philippe Alarm Travel Time 5520P pairs the proprietary dual time zone “Travel Time” function with a 24-hour alarm mechanism, complete with a striking hammer and classic gong. Now let’s take a closer look at this new fake Patek Philippe.
The Patek Philippe Alarm Travel Time 5520P sports a 42.2mm case in platinum by taking its design cues from the Pilot line. Surely, you will notice the quartet of crowns protruding from the case – which is one more than the maiden Pilot model to get used to the new alarm mechanism.
The ebony sunburst dial remains the familiar applied gold Arabic numerals filled with lime, the second time zone displayed via a second skeletonized hour hand, a duo of round indicators for local and home times, and a date sub-dial of the previous Patek Pilot watches.
However, new to the Alarm Travel Time 5520P dial is, of course, the alarm. Patek Philippe chose a digital display for the alarm time placed on the upper portion of the dial, adjustable in 15-minute increments using the crown at 4 o’clock. There is a bell-shaped aperture to indicate on the top of the duo of windows if the alarm is on or off, which is controlled via the pusher at 2 o’clock.
Below the alarm windows is a colorful and round aperture where white shows a daytime alarm and blue indicates a nighttime alarm. The hammer strikes a gong for up to 40 seconds at 2.5 strikes per second for a total of 90 strikes when the alarm is activated.
Patek Philippe replica had to develop the brand new Caliber AL 30-660 S C FUS self-winding movement to power it in order to make this Grand Complication a reality. Comprised of 574 parts, Patek Philippe opted to make an integrated movement to maintain a slim profile, because adding a module to an existing caliber would have made it too bulky.
The Caliber AL 30-660 S C FUS has a 52-hour power reserve and beats at 28,800bph. Clearly visible from the sapphire case back is the 21k gold central rotor, which is marked with the company’s famous Calatrava cross and decorated with a circular Côtes de Genève pattern. You’ll find the fake Rolex to ensure a big tolerance of -3/+2 seconds per day if you took a little closer look. The movement is perfectly manufactured and finished in true Patek form.
The fake Tudor has just announced a wild new spin on the Black Bay after getting encouragement from a prototype military diver they developed in the 1960s. It is a Black Bay that comes with a 12-hour bezel and a new case shape defined by a four o’clock crown and a chunky bezel locking mechanism that uses a claw-like system fitted between the lugs, but not at all what we’ve come to expect from the form.
The newly-launched replica Black Bay P01 is 42mm wide in steel and comes only as shown on a proprietary strap that immerged with the special lugs and bezel lock. Water-resistant to 200m and features a very handy 12-hour bezel, the case shape, and the bezel locking system seem to be the most notable element of this new and particular Black Bay. The asymmetrical case shape is a considerable departure from the Black Bay form but thankfully they’ve chosen to stick to 42mm. The replica Tudor Seiko-Esque crown at four looks good and should help to manage some of the added bulk on the wrist.
The bezel is bidirectional but is held firmly in place by a mechanically-locking set of claws, one in each lug. While I won’t get an opportunity to try this system for myself until the next day, it looks like it will be interesting to try it out. The system, which looks to add so much bulk and lug to lug length to the watch, is based on a prototype locking bezel design tested and created by Tudor in the ’60s.
It is really difficult to predict how the P01 will feel and wear on the wrist between the slightly bigger case, the distinct crown placement, and that bezel lock, but I’m excited to see it in the metal. While of course not as mass market as the standard Black Bay, the fake Rolex watches look funny and I really like the black dial and the steel 12-hour bezel. Definitely, this is one that needs practice on your own, so stay tuned for us.
We witnessed a rather significant update to Omega’s Seamaster Diver 300M lineup in Basel last year. As you may recall, these updates showed us a new version of the ceramic bezel, a ceramic dial engraved with a wave motif, a redesigned helium-escape valve, as well as an upgrade to the Master Chronometer / METAS-certified Caliber 8800. One stainless steel model, coming with the 42mm case, a rubber strap only priced at $4,750, resulting in the Seamaster Diver 300M is one of the best value propositions in the modern watchmaking field worldwide. With a thoroughly tested, highly water-resistant, chronometer-rated, magnetic sports fake watch with a ceramic bezel, it’s no doubt that it will spend you less than $5,000. How amazing it is!
As the coming of this version, which is expected to drop sometime in the spring, featured with a case made from polished and brushed ceramic, a case back made from grade 5 titanium. The bezel is also made in grade 5 titanium, and the ring inside it is black ceramic. The diving scale on the ring is white enamel, offering a perfect contrast that translates to great legibility. Actually, there is a great deal of contrast on the dial as well, which is also brushed ceramic, though in this case, the familiar wave motif is laser engraved in positive relief, which makes the date window hid. While the core collection of the Seamaster Diver 300M comes with a 42mm case, this one holds 43.5mm. Additionally, a black rubber strap along with a buckle in black ceramic is equipped with this new model.
In my view, Seamaster 300 has the best appearance I’ve seen since the collection was announced last year. A steel Master Chronometer Seamaster Diver 300M with a rubber strap sales just $4,750 at present, while gold and steel variations on bracelets tag a high price at $9,700 surprisingly. Coming in right in the middle, this new ceramic and titanium option feels like a great value.
What makes us interesting is that fake Rolex its advanced technology, METAS-Certified family of calibers with Seamaster Diver 300M made from ceramic and titanium. Especially since the brand has been updated last year, the Seamaster Diver 300M has been really got behind from a technology and watchmaking standpoint easily as well as being a product with fantastic value, although I wished for a bit more on the design aspect personally. Luckily, this new model raises the bar, and I’d like to put it on my wrist asap, how about you?
No matter the Oyster Perpetual, the Datejust, the Day-Date, the Daytona, the Yacht-Master or other replica watches, the appealing appearance of Rolex watches are suitable for both man and woman, particularly when Rolex offer more sizes for a number of models, women are more willing to wear larger watches that regard as men’s fake watches. Here is a couple of platinum Rolex President watches to meet the demands of everyone.
The Rolex Day-Date has a typical 36 mm Oyster case made from 950 platinum. As you might confuse it with stainless steel or white gold, Rolex has special designs to discriminate between these metals. For example, fake Rolex Day-Date watches are produced inexpensive metals only, instead of stainless steel. Moreover, white gold Rolex dress cheap watches constantly comes with fluted bezels and rather than flat ones.
The specific Rolex Day-Date comes with a striking and extravagant silver dial, the hour indicators are true diamond. Even though diamond men’s watches will not appeal to everyone’s taste, diamond markers are an elegant and discreet way to wear them. Actually, the ten diamonds are to make way for the renowned calendar windows, a day at 12 o’clock and date at 3 o’clock These look great if it is from Rolex, if not change the other direction when it comes to custom diamond dials.
While the Day-Date was officially named after the day and date windows on the dial, the watch’s well-known “President” nickname is from the bracelet. Featuring its semi-circular links, the President bracelet was debuted on the first Day-Date watch in 1956, since then it has become an indispensable part of the Rolex President watch. Truly the President bracelet of the Rolex Day-Date watch is pretty heavy because of the weight of platinum. No doubt a platinum replica Rolex watch makes its presence felt on the wrist.
Among the greatly different women’s Datejust replica watches, there are a distinctive set of watches regarded as ladies Rolex President watches. These exceedingly extravagant ladies Datejust watches are made from expensive metals and are fitted with the desirable President bracelet.
The platinum Rolex Datejust watch is an extremely beautiful example of a ladies President watch with an exquisite 26 mm Oyster case and diamond lugs. The ice blue dial is also striking with 10 diamond markers. It’s worth noticing that ice blue is exclusively for platinum Rolex watches. As this is a Datejust, there also has the date window at 3 o’clock along with the typical Cyclops magnification lens on the sapphire crystal.
