On the heels of the integrated bracelet mania over the past handful of years, a humble Rolex has found itself in the midst of a comeback. The cheap fake Rolex Oysterquartz was developed in the 1970s while other greats, such as Patek Philippe and Piaget, found themselves suddenly on-board with the Quartz Revolution. Using a new angular case shape with an integrated bracelet that some collectors consider the most comfortable Swiss replica Rolex UK ever produced, a series of Datejusts and Day-Dates hit the Crown’s catalog.
The example we have here takes the classic 1980s two-tone perfect fake Rolex Datejust look and brings in all of the charm of the Oysterquartz platform for a watch that is worthy of a double-take. Take that, Jay-Z: This Rollie does, in fact, tick-tock and is all the better for doing so.
The Full Set – Two-Tone Value And More
In shopping the rest of the vintage collection, you will find more two-tone goodness from the king of bi-metal in a 1958 AAA fake Rolex Zephyr Ref. 1008 and other, more niche makers such as Gübelin in this 1960s Ipso-Matic example. Here is where value is at play, even more so than in the more headline-grabbing pieces above.
With all of its ’50s Swiss movement replica Rolex charm and unique design features, the Zephyr does more than most vintage watches in its ability to be dressed up and down with an outfit or setting. At 35mm in case diameter, it just as easily slips under the cuff of an oxford as it wears well with a t-shirt and denim. It is not every day that you will find a high quality replica Rolex with a crosshair feature on the dial, a quirk that is sure to keep you coming back for more.
