Whether it’s brand new or with retro style, Rolex’s market performance has been extremely prosperous in recent years . In addition to the new GMT-Master II with red and blue bezel released this year, the antique models which have been auctioned by the shocking high price have drawn much more attention.
For example, the famous Paul Newman’s Daytona Ref.6239 was sold at an amazingly high price of $17.8 million. And a platinum Rolex Submariner with blue dial was also the most expensive Submariner on the auction of Rare Watches and a Rolex Afternoon in 2017, with a Swiss Francs of 631,500. However, this record was broken for only more than a year. A Ref. 6538 Submariner was sold at US$1,068,500, becoming the most expensive Rolex Submariner in history.
The two Rolex fake watches with black dials I introduce today are not antique versions, however, they are rare, which make them attract many collectors and watch lovers. It is a long history that Rolex provided the military issued wristwatches for regular army of governments. The Explorer II and Rolex Submariner copy with Oystersteel case are both offered for SSR and the former one was released in 2008 while the latter was in 2010.
On Sotheby’s auction for famous wristwatches held in Hongkong, a unique Rolex Daytona fake watch was auctioned in a price of 871,348 dollars, breaking the record of modern Rolex wristwatches.
The owner of this Rolex copy with mother-of-pearl dial was Patrick Heiniger, the former CEO of Rolex. He commissioned to make five pieces of Daytona which equipped with Zenith movements. Four of them were given to commercial partners as gifts and the rest one was for himself. As the distinctive feature of the mother-of-pearl, each model was with the different dial. This Daytona was the first Rolex “Zenith” Daytona with platinum case for auction.
In October of 1999, Patrick Heiniger gave the automatic movement knockoff watch to the couple – Francesca Gobbi and Romain Gourdain as the wedding present.
Rolex has a close and profound relationship with cinema. The images of different models of Rolex have occurred in many popular films. For example, Marlon Brando、Harrison Ford、Paul Newman、Al Pacino、Jim Carrey and so on all have ever worn Rolex in their movies, among whom many actors haven’t cooperated with Rolex. The following are the classic movies, in which I think you will know the exactly models the super stars wore.
Paul Newman wore a Rolex Daytona in the movie “Winning” in 1969, later the Daytona Ref.6239/6241 had been called Paul Newman Daytona. The luxury fake Rolex Daytona Paul Newman are the dream of each Rolex fan.
In the movie “Goldfinger”, James Bond, Sean Connery played, wore the black dial copy Rolex Submariner, so this type was called The Bond Submariner too.
Stallone is a fan of Panerai and he makes Panerai popular. However, in the movie “Rocky III” he wore a Rolex Submariner Ref.1680 with gold bracelet and case.
Rolex has been well-known all over the world with its extraordinary performance and top quality, however, it never stops developing. The precise fake Rolex has built its own watchmaking tradition, meanwhile building close relationship with tennis. The profound partnership between Rolex and tennis could be date back to 1978 when the popular watch brand became the official timepieces of Wimbledon Tennis Championship. It witnessed countless historical moments of the tennis field in recent 40 years.
The knockoff watch with self-winding mechanical movement is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters, being regarded as the paragon of robustness and elegance. It reinforces the glamour of Roger Federer and accompanies him in each important moment.
