UK Best Replica Rolex Watches Dials Down The Hype

Cheap Rolex replica watches‘ shift towards tradition and precious metals could bring much-needed stability to the luxury watch market, suggests Tracey Llewellyn.

In an industry often defined by frenetic activity and headline-grabbing releases, Rolex’s approach to its 2024 watch lineup represents a notable departure from recent trends.

Eschewing the bold, colourful designs that have dominated its recent offerings – from 2020’s Oyster Perpetuals in jewel shades to last year’s bubbly OP ‘Celebration’ and Day-Date ‘Emoji’ – this year’s Watches and Wonders launches from Rolex gave out a clear message: a return to normalcy.

And the big question from industry experts is whether this shift in Rolex’s design philosophy, could have far-reaching implications for the broader luxury watch market.

According to collector, dealer and co-author of Rolex Wristwatches: An Unauthorized History, James Dowling, this year’s releases were simply a matter of Rolex returning to its default setting after a giddy 2023. “Rolex is not, nowadays, a revolutionary company – except for last year,” he says.

“After ‘Emoji’ Day-Dates; a titanium Yacht Master and the introduction of a new line in the 1908, expectations were high that 2024 would be equally daring. But no, 1:1 UK Rolex fake watches has reverted to its norm of gradual evolution.

“Last year’s titanium Yacht Master has been given the titanium bracelet it needed all along while the 1908, previously only available in gold, now appears in platinum. Day-Dates now have interesting smoked dials and the GMT Master received a new coloured bezel. OK, it wasn’t exciting, but it was Rolex doing what they do best – evolution.”

After years of intense speculation and secondary market mania surrounding the brand’s highly coveted, limited-edition pieces, the 2024 launches signal a conscious effort to refocus on the core essence of Rolex – the timeless, classic designs that have cemented the brand’s reputation as a horological institution.

The new crop of perfect replica Rolex watches, which includes updates to models like the GMT-Master II, Deepsea, and Cosmograph Daytona, represents a deliberate move away from the ‘hype watch’ mentality that has gripped the industry in recent times.

While these latest offerings are still expected to be sales hits and solid investments, the reduced emphasis on exclusivity and speculation could bring about a stabilising effect on the market.

John Robinson, managing director of David M Robinson, a Rolex AD with boutiques in Liverpool, Manchester, Altrincham and London, speaks for many when he says: “I actually felt a sense of relief and calm this year when leaving the Rolex stand in Geneva.

“It felt like someone had finally asked the DJ at a party to slow the tempo a bit. It felt like a moment to pause (and consolidate) and to gently remove the pressure that was beginning to build – that every new Watches and Wonders for Rolex had to be a blockbuster year in terms of novelties. I don’t think the industry as a whole, needs that kind of pressure.”

The recent trend of introducing highly coveted, hard to get pieces fuelled an intense secondary market scrum, with prices often skyrocketing well beyond retail value.

This, in turn, created significant supply constraints and pricing pressures, making it increasingly difficult for genuine enthusiasts and collectors to acquire the high quality Rolex copy watches they desired.

By shifting its focus towards updating its icons, Rolex may be able to ease some of these market pressures.

While the new releases will likely still be near impossible to find at retail, this shift in Rolex’s approach is likely have implications for the secondary market dynamics.

The reduced hype surrounding the 2024 Swiss made Rolex replica watches could result in more moderate price premiums on the grey and pre-owned markets, making the brand’s timepieces more accessible to a wider range of collectors and enthusiasts, rather than being dominated by speculative investors.

Over time, this could help rebalance the secondary market and make it more reflective of genuine demand and appreciation for Rolex’s iconic designs.

Moreover, Rolex’s move towards a more traditional and subdued design approach could have ripple effects across the primary luxury watch industry after a period of rapid growth and volatility.

Other leading brands may follow suit, adopting a more measured and classic design language in their own new releases, fostering a more sustainable, long-term growth trajectory.

Ultimately, Rolex’s decision to scale back the razzmatazz and focus on refining its staple models for 2024 could be a watershed moment for the entire luxury watch market.

By tempering the intense speculation and secondary market free-for-all that has characterised recent years, the brand may be able to rebalance the dynamics of the industry, making its AAA fake Rolex watches more accessible to genuine enthusiasts and collectors.

In doing so, Rolex could pave the way for a new era of stability and normalcy in the world of high-end horology – a development that is likely to be welcomed by both industry insiders and consumers alike.


GMT-Master II

The new stainless-steel top replica Rolex GMT-Master II watches, with its black and grey ceramic bezel, is expected to be one of Rolex’s top sellers for 2024. Bang on trend with many other monochrome models we saw at Watches and Wonders, despite its relatively understated appearance, it will likely be nearly impossible to find at retail, continuing a trend that has plagued many of the brand’s steel sports models in recent years.


Getting some of the biggest headlines of the show – along with the off-catalogue Le Mans Daytona – one of Rolex’s surprises this year was the introduction of luxury super clone Rolex Deepsea watches in solid gold. A bold and luxurious take on the brand’s most extreme dive watch, the 44mm case and bright blue dial and bezel make for a striking, statement-making timepiece.

Cosmograph Daytona

Rolex also unveiled new versions of its iconic Cosmograph Daytona chronograph, one in white gold on an Oysterflex bracelet and another on a three-link Oyster bracelet. These models blend the sporty heritage of the Daytona with a heightened sense of opulence, featuring mother-of-pearl dials and bezels set with diamonds.


Last year’s replacement for the Cellini now has a model with a guilloche ricegrain motif on its ice-blue dial – the colour reserved for pieces made in platinum. Highly wearable at 39mm in diameter and just 9.5mm thick, the 2024 online Rolex replica watches is powered by the Calibre 7140 with a Chronergy escapement and Syloxi balance spring and showcases Rolex’s commitment to the classic art of watchmaking, blending traditional craftsmanship with the brand’s renowned technical expertise.


Rolex’s most complicated watch now comes in both yellow and Everose gold variants, the former with white dial, the latter with a more subdued slate dial. Both models are equipped with a Jubilee bracelet, now updated with ceramic inserts for enhanced quality and flexibility. The refined updates continue inside the case with the Calibre 9002, which includes the brand’s Saros Calendar and Ring Command System complications.


New models include a 40mm gold version with a slate dial and a 36mm model with a blue-green dial and a diamond-set bezel. But the best of the Day-Dates was the Swiss movements fake Rolex Day-Date 40 watches in white gold with pearlised mother-of-pearl dial. Using only the finest of material, the result in an intricate, voluminous effect that evokes a sky filled with clouds. Baguette-cut diamond indexes and Rolex’s iconic fluted bezel, all mounted on the brand’s signature President bracelet complete the piece.

One point of note is that only one of the launches, the GMT-Master II, was in steel, the others focusing on precious metals and gem-setting.

This will, of course increase average price points and should satisfy retailers who had been asking for more allocation of gold and platinum models, for example Brian Duffy, chief executive of Watches of Switzerland Group, who said during a conference call with analysts in January 2024 that while Rolex had delivered the predicted number of replica Rolex watches shop to the retailer, the product mix was not what was expected, and that receiving fewer gold pieces and more steel had affected the group’s average transaction value.

In short, the 2024 collection showcases the brand’s ability to blend its iconic sports watch designs with high-end, luxurious materials and finishes, further cementing the Rolex name as a symbol of prestige and exclusivity in the world of horology.

David Silver, managing director of the Vintage Watch Company and author of Vintage Rolex, says that he was “delighted to see a focus back on important gold pieces particularly in 36mm with stone dials and gem-set cases and some really extraordinary offcatalogue collections that that hark back to vintage Rolex models of the 1970s and 1980s.”

Mr Silver was not the only one to appreciate the offcatalogue models with Tudor and Rolex connoisseur, and founder of Ross Povey saying that 2024 was a year when Rolex “gently revisited classics such as the Day-Date and Daytona, adding gem-set bezels to the latter again, which have been missing for a number of years.

The recent white gold Le Mans watches caused a stir both this year and last year. Is the brand finally taking a leaf out of little brother’s Black (Bay) book and truly giving collectors what they want?

A Paul Newman exotic style dial heavily inspired by vintage icons from the brand might indicate so!” According to Florida-based author, dealer and renowned authority on vintage watches, Eric Wind: “This year was a rather quiet year for Rolex compared to last year, where it seemed like there were four or five headline acts.

“Rolex didn’t really do much in steel [this year] except the two-tone black and grey bezel GMT. That seemed to be more a move of expedience than anything as the Pepsi bezel is rumoured to be difficult to produce due to the red Cerachrom ceramic having production issues.

“If there was one headline for the general public, it is the Deepsea in yellow gold. A local Rolex retailer got 38 calls the first day for that model and very few for any other novelty. It weighs about 330 grams and is essentially a piece of bullion on the wrist.

“Rolex clearly wants to direct more of its movements into precious metals cases that offer them a higher margin and a higher average sales price, so it was not a surprise that precious additional metals introductions, whether Daytonas, Day-Dates or Sky- Dwellers, were the order of the year.”

Mr Robinson agrees with this take on the Swiss China Rolex Deepsea fake watches saying, “The new GMT looks amazing on the wrist and the Deepsea in 18ct yellow gold has a dial that I would love to see in the warm waters of the Med – just as the Submariner blue dial seems to deepen in the sunlight, I think the Deepsea will do the same.”

He also heaps praise on the new platinum 1908, telling WatchPro that it is “a joy to behold. I managed to look at the dial with a 10X loupe and the guilloche detail is mesmerising. I suspect we all love an exhibition back as well.

The equivalent of a glass bonnet on an F1 car in my opinion.” As the luxury watch market continues to evolve, Rolex’s shift in direction towards the a more traditional approach could serve as a guiding light for the industry.

By prioritising the refinement of its core models over the pursuit of headline-grabbing exclusivity, the brand may be able to restore a sense of balance and accessibility to the market, ultimately benefiting both the industry and the passionate collectors who drive its growth.

Of course, this is just the first drop of the year from the Crown, and the past few years have taught us to expect the unexpected with announcements being made in Q3 and Q4, when there is less competition from 53 other brands.

The Newly-Released 2024 UK Top Rolex Replica Watches Price List Shows A More Reasonable Yearly Increase

Without surprises, the arrival of a new year also means subsequent price changes for brands (and this isn’t limited to watch brands, but you’ll find these in multiple other industries). Last year already, we published the newly released price list of Rolex, which showed a rather impressive increase in the RRP of most models, with precious metal and two-tone luxury Rolex replica watches being particularly affected – something we also did in 2022, but then steel models were mostly impacted by this increase. As we’re entering 2024, Rolex has already updated its website with new prices for all references. However, compared to previous years, we might have some good news… or should I say less disappointing news. If we can’t avoid the increase in prices, it is however more reasonable than in previous years, as the 2024 Rolex price list shows, on average, a rise of about 4% of the RRP. 

Method: to simplify this 2024 Rolex price list and to have a reliable comparative background to Rolex prices in 2023, we’ll be using the same method as previous years, meaning a year-on-year (YOY) comparison – January 2023 vs. January 2024 – and with the prices in Euro, on the French market, and including VAT. This allowed us to use the article we published last year as a precise comparison, using the same market, currency and models. The only exceptions to note are the 1:1 UK Rolex fake watches that were presented at Watches & Wonders in March 2023. For these recent models (Cosmograph Daytona, Yacht-Master 42 Titanium, Explorer 40, Updated Sky-Dweller, 1908 Collection, Yellow Gold and Rolesor GMT Master II), we’re using the price at the time of their introduction. We’ve also noticed identical price evolutions in the UK and US markets.

In 2023, Rolex started the year, like many other brands from the watch industry (and from other industries), with a rather significant price correction. Most of the models have been impacted by a rise of about 7 to 8% of the price, except Rolesor models (two-tone, steel-and-gold), showing an increase of about 11%. The economic situation in late 2022 and early 2023, with a strong increase in production costs and other expenses (such as the price of energy or raw materials), somehow justified this situation.

Looking at the wider image, according to the OECD, “the global economy continues to confront the challenges of both low growth and elevated inflation, with a mild slowdown (in 2024), mainly as a result of the necessary monetary policy tightening over the past two years. Inflation has declined from last year’s peaks.” The situation isn’t ideal yet but it seems that inflation isn’t growing as fast as it used to in 2023 and prices are rising less quickly. Also, if we’re looking more closely, the watch market isn’t as prolific now as it’s been in 2022 and early 2023. Even if the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry reported that “exports reached their highest-ever monthly level in November (2023)” it also reports a “more moderate rate of growth since the summer.” Also, second-hand prices have corrected and returned to more acceptable levels, with a few exceptions of course.

Rolex being Rolex, it remains a highly hermetic company that doesn’t disclose its sales or production figures (presiding over Montres Rolex SA is a foundation, the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, which owns and controls Rolex to this day, and there is no requirement to disclose financial statements under the law.) We can’t precisely claim that perfect replica Rolex watches had a more prolific year in 2023 than in 2022, however, several experts such as Vontobel or Morgan Stanley still indicate in their estimates some growing figures. However, the word about easier availability of some references is spreading…

With this situation in mind, it’s time to look at the 2024 Rolex price list. Before we move into the details for each collection, it must be said that this year’s correction is more moderate than it’s been in the past. On average, prices are up 4% with no distinction between materials or models – which wasn’t the case in 2022 and 2023. Let’s now take a look at the detailed 2023 Rolex price list per collection.

Cosmograph Daytona

The case of Rolex’s star chronograph is a bit special since the collection was entirely revamped in March 2023, with best Rolex copy watches starting to be delivered in the second half of the year. Thus, we have to compare what’s comparable, and we’re looking here at the evolution of the price of the 126xxx generation. Indeed, when the collection was introduced, it carried a slight price increase compared to the previous 116xxx generation – a minimal one of 300 euros on a steel version (EUR 14,650 for the 116500LN in January 2023, EUR 14,950 for the 126500LN in March 2023). Overall, the price of the 126xxx sees an increase of about 4%, with a more controlled rise of the platinum edition, while the Rolesor models are a bit more impacted… but surely not as much as in 2023. Also, the Paul Newman-Inspired white gold “Le Mans” reference 126529LN, despite being released later in 2023, is equally impacted.

Submariner and Submariner Date

Whatever the version – date or no date – or the material used, the Submariner collection sees its prices increase by around 4%. No evolution is to be seen in the collection, which is the same as it was when this dive watch was updated in 2020. We can’t note this year the same difference between the steel and the Rolesor version, which was particularly affected by the price increase last year.

GMT Master II

Following an increase of about 7% last year for the steel models – Batman (blue-black BLNR), Pepsi (blue-red BLRO) and Sprite/Destro (green-black VTNR) – all these references are mildly affected by the evolution of prices. Two new models were presented in 2023 at Watches & Wonders, the GRNR versions with yellow gold or yellow Rolesor cases and bracelets. Despite their recent introduction, these two models are equally impacted by the increase in prices.

SEA-DWELLER, DEEPSEA and Deepsea Challenge

Even though there was no evolution in this collection this year, it has to be noted that Rolex’s most impressive dive watch, the Deepsea Challenge, was unveiled in late 2022. As such, it was not impacted by the evolution of the price in early 2023. As expected, this situation has changed now and the gigantic 11,000-metre water-resistant watch also sees its price rise, however from a fairly restrained 2%. The classic 43mm Sea-Dweller and the Deepsea are impacted by the same 4 to 5% rise, as the rest of the high quality replica Rolex watches.

Explorer and Explorer II

As part of what probably was Rolex’s most prolific collection ever (the 2023 range counted no fewer than 9 new sub-collections) was a new Explorer, in 40mm, to sit alongside the vintage-inspired 36mm versions. No surprise for these adventure-themed Swiss movements fake Rolex Explorer watches, which all see their prices rise in the 4% range. The same can be said about the Explorer II.

Yacht-Master and Yacht-Master II

The situation for the Yacht-Master and Yacht-Master II collection has long been different from the rest of the professional collection. Already in 2022 and 2023, we’ve seen disparities in the evolution of prices. This year again, some of the references (YM in Rolesium – steel with platinum bezel) are only impacted by a 2% increase. On the other hand, the Rolesor and YG Yacht-Master II are some of the Rolex replica watches online site with the strongest increase in price this year. The recently introduced Titanium 42mm Yacht-Master is impacted in the same vein as most models.

Air King and Sky-Dweller

In last year’s article, this section also included the Milgauss, which was discontinued in 2023. Now, whether we look at the Air King 126900, a relatively recent model, or the discreetly updated Sky-Dweller of 2023 (new dials, upgraded movement), the increase of the price is in the 4% range, whatever the material used. For the latter, being a model launched in March 2023, we’re comparing the prices at the time of the introduction and the prices now, yet the new model didn’t come with a price increase at the time of its presentation.

Datejust 41 and Datejust 36

Cheap super clone Rolex’s most classic watches, the Datejust, has not been updated in 2023 and the collection remains as wide as it used to be in the past – there are well over 300 versions listed on the brand’s website, taking into account all possible materials, diameters, dial colours, bezel styles and bracelet types. For this reason, we’re only listing here some of the classic references – steel or Rolesor – to give a broad idea of the situation in this collection.

Day-Date 40 and Day-Date 36

Another classic and extremely large collection of Rolex, the Day-Date is exclusively available in precious metals (gold or platinum). Hundreds of combinations are available and for this reason, we’re only listing here the most classic versions, which are all affected by a price increase of about 4%, much less than the evolution of 2023.

OYSTER PERPETUAL 41, 36, 34, 31 AND 28

Last year, Rolex’s entry-level collection, the Oyster Perpetual, faced a massive 11% price increase. Available in no fewer than 5 different sizes, the collection now undergoes a slightly smaller price correction than the rest of the range. The much-discussed Celebration dial presented this year faces the same increase and its price is the same as a model with a flat, monochromatic dial.

Perpetual 1908

A new collection presented in March 2023 and the successor to the top Swiss Rolex Cellini replica watches, the Perpetual 1908 is the most elegant model in Rolex’s catalogue. It also included a brand-new movement, refined decorations and a sapphire back. Knowing its recent introduction, we’re comparing here the prices at the time of its launch and the prices of January 2024.
