It is our natural curiosity, often resulting from owning one or more top Rolex replica watches or wanting to add one to our collection. So it’s time for our regular check to see what your current affordable options are. Before you scroll down to the comments section, we mean “affordable” in the Rolex universe, of course.
Replica Rolex Submariner ref. 14060 Watches
A model that many watch fans will check the prices of is the Swiss AAA Rolex Submariner fake watches. When it comes to the long lineage of the Submariner, the ref. 14060 is and has been your best bet as an affordable option. This reference is the last of the dateless Submariners with an aluminum bezel. But it was the first of the no-date Rolex Submariner copy watches for sale to have a sapphire crystal. As most of you will know, the Submariner ref. 14060 came equipped with the Rolex caliber 3000. Later, ref. 14060M versions housed the improved caliber 3130, and those go for more money. Either way, the ref. 14060 is a perfect modern daily wearer with the classic Submariner charm.
It is also why Thomas picked it for his €25,000 watch collection. And he reserved a healthy €10K for his luxury replica Rolex ref. 14060 watches. He was right to do so because that will get you one in very nice condition. Looking at your options, if you search well, you might be able to get one between €8.5K and €10K, which will buy you an absolutely brilliant watch. If you are not interested in boxes and papers, that shaves off a chunk of money. Asking prices start at roughly €7.5K, and going up to €9K will offer you plenty of choices to get an absolute classic.
Fake Rolex Sea-Dweller ref. 16600 Watches
On to my absolute favorite of this list. The high quality replica Rolex Sea-Dweller ref. 16600 watches is high on my list of wants. It’s the absolute perfect Rolex for me and the one watch that connected me to the brand in all the right ways around 20 years ago. After wearing Robert-Jan’s Sea-Dweller for a few days in the early 2000s, I knew this was the one Rolex for me. Compared to the Submariner, the chunkier case of the Sea-Dweller is a joy to wear, and the watch oozes competence on your wrist. This reference was produced from 1989 until 2009 and has a 40mm case that measures 48mm from lug to lug and 14.5mm thick. Rolex equipped the watch with the COSC-certified and super reliable caliber 3135.
When it comes to the current prices, we see that they have come down quite a bit. These days, the wholesale super clone Rolex Sea-Dweller ref. 16600 watches starts at €7K, and if you move up to €8.5K, you will have plenty of wiggle room to find a nice one. If you want one with its box and papers, the price range goes up from €8K to €10K for a good one. If you ask me, those prices are reasonable considering the brilliance you will get in return. Having said that, I am also heavily biased. I’d love to add the Sea-Dweller ref. 16600 to my collection one day. Maybe that day is closer than I had ever thought…
Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 16710 Replica Watches
The last of our five picks is the 1:1 online replica Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 16710 watches. It’s the last generation of the GMT-Master II that came with an aluminum bezel, just like the Submariner ref. 14060 we talked about. The watch was produced from 1989 until 2007. You have the choice of the iconic red and blue Pepsi bezel insert, black and red Coke insert, or an all-black insert. The 40mm case measures 12mm thick and just under 48mm from lug to lug. It is the perfect modernized version of the first GMT-Master from the 1950s. As such, it has the charm of the original, but it is executed with modern standards in mind. The Rolex fake watches for men houses the Rolex caliber 3185, which also powered the Explorer II we highlighted earlier. Later versions also came with the follow-up caliber 3186.
As you would expect, the versions with the all-black or Coke bezels are somewhat more affordable than the Pepsi-bezel ones. Expect to see prices starting a little above €9K for the all-black or Coke variants. If you want plenty of choice, expect prices to go up to €11K easily. Considering that the current China Rolex GMT-Master II replica watches has a list price of €10,700, it’s safe to say that the (neo-)vintage versions are quite costly. But after seeing the ref. 16710 again, I am reminded how much more I love the charm of the aluminum bezel inserts compared to their current Cerachrom counterparts. For me, it’s a big reason to go for a ref. 16710 over the more recent models.
