UK Vintage Rolex Submariner Replica Watches For Sale12th May 2022
We’re coming into that time of year here in New York City where I find myself wearing stainless steel bracelets almost exclusively. The leather straps may have a few days left before heading to the luxury fake watch box until the weather turns again. During Spring cleaning I always like to raise some funds to give myself an excuse to either buy a new bracelet or, piggy bank willing, a new bracelet-equipped watch. If you are a seasoned vintage UK AAA replica Rolex and Tudor collector and have never owned an older piece from either branch of the Crown, there is no going wrong with a Submariner – we have you covered.
Starting with big brother, both in age and in market position, this 1972 1:1 replica Rolex Submariner ref. 5513 is an excellent example of vintage Rolex at its absolute, most refined core. While earlier examples may feature nerdier details like underlines and “Bart Simpson” coronets, all of that variance and change in the 1950s and 60s lead to the watch we have here. This is the settled-in, comfortable-in-its-pure-tool-watch-nature Rolex Submariner fake for sale.
These matte-dialed 5513s from the 70s are some of my favorites from the high quality fake Submariner line for that reason. I can feel a certain confidence on the wrist. There is no date, there is no outstanding technical achievement, yet the watch is powerful; it is an icon of design and it knows as much. Who doesn’t need a bit of confidence heading into the warmer months?
Sixteen years later, Tudor produced this 1988 top fake Rolex Submariner ref. 76100 – not all too much changed. A rivet-link Oyster bracelet has been upgraded to solid-link and a date was added at three o’clock. Of course, my comparison is not apples to apples here, this Tudor is more of a ref. 1680 than a ref. 5513 but a Sub is a Sub.
In the way that the Swiss made replica Rolex above is refined and stipped down, this particular Tudor Submariner has a couple of little details that keep me coming back and make it one of my personal favorites. First off, I love the meters-first depth rating, calling back to best Swiss copy Rolex Subs decades before. And the traditional Mercedes handset is actually quite rare in this particular reference. Earlier 76100s featured “lollipop” hands, but due to the large surface area of lume in this style and cracking that occurred, a switch was made right at the end of the reference’s production back to the classic Mercedes shape. Beyond being a go-anywhere, do-anything dive super clone watch, primed for Summer wear, when a true Tudor head asks you what reference this is, they will know how uncommon the combination is.
