It’s that time of year again — you know what I mean: the time when we read the horological tea leaves and try to get a bead on what exciting new AAA Rolex replica watches releases are coming down the pike. Of course, we’re not prophets — we have absolutely no idea what’s up the sleeves of the great and all-powerful Swiss.
Special Rolex Submariner (of Some Sort)
Rolex debuted the best UK Rolex Submariner fake watches— the world’s most famous dive watch, and possibly, the world’s most famous watch, full stop — back in 1953. So though the cheap replica Rolex Submariner watches got a full-on, 41mm refresh just a couple short years ago, we’re predicting some sort of nod to the 70th anniversary of this very special timepiece.
Back in 2003, the luxury Rolex Submariner copy watches got a special, green-bezel edition that now trades for several times its list price. Could we see something similar in 2023 at the new 41mm diameter? It’s easy enough to introduce a new bezel color (says a guy who’s never had to fashion anything out of Cerachrom), but we’ve already got green and blue in the mix. What about a new dial color? Personally, I’m predicting something wild, something that we’ve never seen from the brand before. Here’s hoping.
The Continued Proliferation of the Affordable “Flyer” GMT
For a long time, GMT options with “flyer” or “true” GMT functionality — i.e. an independently adjustable local hour hand — were limited to high-end, expensive watches such as the Swiss movements Rolex GMT Master-II replica watches. In fact, finding an affordable GMT period was rather tough for a while. In the past five years, things have begun to change, with microbrands picking up the GMT gauntlet and offering relatively affordable “caller”-style GMTs.
Now, with the debut of movements such as the Miyota 9075, we’re seeing affordable “flyer” Rolex GMT-Master II super clone watches for sale at prices previously unthinkable. It seems only logical that more and more microbrands — and larger brands — will continue to adopt such movements, as producing them at scale becomes more affordable and common. That’s great news for frequent travelers who would prefer not to smack down over 10 Gs on 1:1 wholesale Rolex GMT-Master II replica watches. LIP, Jack Mason and Bulova are already on board with the Cal. 9075; our guess is many more brands will follow in ’23.
