In the article, I briefly touched up on the possibility of buying a Rolex for the same amount of money. So this week, we decided to dive into the world of pre-owned Rolex sports models to discover some of the most affordable options. And to our surprise, some of the prices were lower than we had thought. So let’s unveil our top pre-owned best replica Rolex sports watches to buy now. None of the models are surprising, but their prices might be.
Rolex Explorer ref. 114270 Replica Watches
Our first pick is the Swiss AAA fake Rolex Explorer ref. 114270 watches. It’s a watch that Fratello’s Daan owns and has written about multiple times. He also featured it in his list of options under €7K. But to our surprise, the starting prices for a ref. 114270 are around €5,000. And within the €5K–6K price range, you are spoiled for choice. You can get one in very good condition with the box and papers well under €6K. It makes the classic 36mm luxury Rolex Explorer copy watches a great first pick for this list. If you prefer the bigger 39mm follow-up to this ref. 114270, you have to add quite a significant chunk of cash. The Mk1 versions of the ref. 214270 start at roughly €6K, while the Mk2 options — the ones you really want — start around €7K.
If you can pull off the 36mm version, that is your best pick. Just as a reminder, the ref. 114270 was produced from 2001 to 2010. It has a 36mm Oyster case that is 11.1mm thick and 44.2mm from lug to lug. It features the iconic black 3-6-9 dial that defines the piece’s charm. Inside the case, you will find the Rolex caliber 3130. This automatic movement operates at a 28,800vph frequency and has 48 hours of power reserve. With the high quality replica Rolex Explorer ref. 114270 watches, you will get a perfect daily wearer suited for a wide variety of situations. It’s a great first pick at a surprisingly good price.
Fake Rolex Explorer II ref. 16570 Watches
We are staying within the Explorer family but taking a step toward the cheap UK Rolex Explorer II replica watches. Reference 16570 is a Fratello favorite and was produced from 1989 until 2011. Thomas and Gerard own one, and it is Nacho’s grail watch. In May of 2022, Nacho put the thought of buying this perfect Rolex Explorer II super clone watches on ice. Prices kept rising, making it harder and harder to justify the purchase of this rugged tool watch. But roughly 18 months later, the world is a different place. Don’t say that to Thomas because he might chase you as a result of buying his ref. 16570 when prices were still soaring. In today’s market, you will be able to buy a ref. 16570 with the box and papers and in good condition starting at just under €7K. Spending between €7K and €8K will get you one in very good condition.
If you are not looking for one with its box and papers, you can shave off quite a bit and get one starting at just over €6K and moving up. While my initial assumption was that the black model would be slightly cheaper, both are offered for roughly the same asking prices. That will get you the last of the 40mm Explorer II models. As Thomas explained in a Sunday Morning Showdown, the Explorer II is the one Rolex that, when you spot it on someone’s wrist, instantly tells you the wearer is into Rolex replica watches online. With so many Rolex options out there, the Explorer II is very much a deliberate choice. The case measures 40mm in diameter, just over 12mm thick, and 47.5mm from lug to lug. Inside it, you will find caliber 3185 for the pre-2006 models. After that, Rolex used its updated caliber 3186. Overall, this is the one Explorer II to have if you ask us. With today’s prices, Nacho might change his mind.
