The idea of a “two watch collection” seems to strike a nerve with people. “How am I supposed to get by with only two luxury replica watches?,” someone might say. We might even hear that “anyone with just two watches is NOT a true watch collector!” The takes are always hot.
Let’s save all of the gatekeeping. Here is my perspective: I wear one of two perfect fake watches 99 percent of the time. I’m a two watch collector by accident, I would love to have five, 10, 15 more watches that I loved as much as the two I wear – but I don’t. Agree or disagree with me as much as you want – but I believe the perfect “two watch vintage Swiss made replica Rolex collection” consists of a glossy dial Explorer ref. 1016 and a Daytona ref. 6263.
Luckily, we have my idea of perfection available today in our online shop.
The base, the core, the mirepoix of vintage sport Rolex is the cheap fake Rolex Explorer ref. 1016. It’s everything you need, nothing you don’t, all wrapped in an expertly proportioned 36mm stainless steel Oyster case. More important is just how clean this particular example is. Only a handful of 1016s on this level come to market each year. The glossy dial is so rich and deep in person, providing that unique “1960s super clone Rolex” feeling of looking into a black mirror. The depth of the black dial is contrasted perfectly by a creamy patina to the lume, which creates a special vintage aesthetic identifiable from across a room. With a super-strong, unpolished case, I genuinely believe you’d have a tough time finding a better best 1:1 fake Rolex 1016 than this one.
If this 1:1 replica Rolex Explorer‘s “yin” requires a “yang,” look no further than this Daytona. Of course, it has a matte dial versus the 1016’s gloss, but as a ref. 6263, the black outer bezel is paired with screw-down pushers. Among manual-wind Rolex Daytonas fake for sale, this combination is the most “extra” – by that, I mean where the ref. 6239/6262 is understated with a steel bezel and more simple pump pushers, the 6263 is loud and exaggerated. If the 1016 is the stripped-down core of vintage copy Rolex sport models, a reverse-panda 6263 is about as deluxe as you can get without going for gold.
While the Rolex Explorer replica online UK shows very few signs of wear, this Daytona has a charming patina that begs for more wrist time. The sub-dials have just enough discoloration to take the edge off the stark contrast of the reverse panda configuration. There is an honesty to this AAA fake Rolex Daytona 6263 that is extremely appealing in the metal. The exclamation point of this untouched feeling is the non-Sigma, non-Daytona dial – an uncommon variant that is specific to this early 1970s case serial range.
Make my perfect two watch vintage super clone Rolex collection a reality with this glossy-dial 1966 Rolex Explorer ref. 1016 and this 1972 high quality fake Rolex Oyster Cosmograph ‘Daytona’ ref. 6263.
