As the very first company to create integrated rubber straps for Rolex sport replica watches in 2010, Rubber B modestly, but courageously introduced vulcanized rubber straps that featured blocked case integration and Oyster clasp compatibility for a few select Rolex watch models, including the Daytona, Submariner, and GMT Master. Initial reception by the Rolex community was vehemently mixed, and a gentle path to mainstream acceptance was paved with a long-term focus on promoting quality craftsmanship. Seven years later, Rubber B has become a mainstay, having grown exponentially to include over 175 different strap options that accommodate passionate watch owners of many various luxury brands.

Even Rolex, SA has joined in on the rubber strap phenomenon, most recently introducing their new “Oyster–Flex” straps for the 2015 Yachtmaster and the brand new 2017 Daytona. In the past, Rolex had only produced a limited number of gem-set Datejust watches that came with their own fashionable rubber strap with inlaid diamonds, but this new foray into rubber straps for sport models certainly has broadened the field of strap options available to Rolex enthusiasts.

Most notably, Rubber B is the only integrated watchband company whose rubber straps Rolex Yachtmaster fake watches are earnestly produced in Switzerland, and always feature the mold marking “Swiss Made” in their rubber body, as such markings are strictly guarded by international trade law. Each integrated Rubber B strap contains a solid insert that has been micro-calibrated for a specific watch model, maintaining a tight, rotation-free mount to the watch case (“Blocked Integration”). The original purpose of Rubber B was to provide discerning Rolex watch owners with a viable alternative to their original Rolex bracelet, while they enjoyed comfort, individuality, and customization. However, in the case of the beautiful Sky-Dweller that comes originally from Rolex on a crocodile band, such owners can now have the added benefit of bathing, swimming, and perspiring without worry, all while wearing their exclusive Rolex watch.

It is an overly-used phrase these days, but Rolex owners truly do understand and appreciate the value of Swiss quality engineering. Every aspect of a Rubber B strap must maintain an integral respect to its intended watch. For example, the bezel-influenced fluted grooves and subtle color patterns of this particular strap are intended to compliment the various Sky-Dweller models and dials currently available from Rolex. Beyond such design elements, the customer’s best interest must be profoundly considered. For, it is only upon the wearer’s long-term endearment of their strap, that the reputation of the strap-maker can be organically built. Rubber B believes you must value the customer, striving to provide them with a product that they will truly find impressive, then enjoy, and greatly appreciate. The VulChromatic® Series with dual-color chemistry was created by Rubber B’s Swiss factory with this exact purpose in mind.

The sale of Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona fake watches made headlines around the world, not only because of its heritage but also for the record-breaking price it commanded. For the buyer of this watch, and the buyers of any other watch at auction, there is more to it then just pay the hammer price and the premium. Taxes are also an important consideration or should be at least as it can save you quite a bit of money when you plan ahead.

About this, we talked with David Lehn, Tax Partner at Withers Bergman, who provides us an insight into how to become an “investor” in the eyes of the IRS, or how to ensure that you can bequeath a watch collection to the next generation without giving them a tax burden as well.

How can the potential buyers mitigate the tax burden of a purchase like the Paul Newman watch?

The immediate tax burden is the sales tax. This may be avoided by a purchase for use in a state with no sales tax, provided that the delivery is in that state. Some individuals have sought to avoid the sales tax by establishing “warehouses” in sales tax-free states. The states are aggressive in pursuing these cases, with criminal consequences.

The purchaser may need to sell other items to raise the funds for the Rolex daytona series copy watches purchase. These sales may produce an income tax burden. Avoiding this income tax burden is possible if the individual is an “investor” for IRS purposes and the individual can facilitate like kind exchanges (discussed below).

Finally, while not immediately helpful, the individual should consider becoming an investor to take advantage of deducting future expenses and losses, and taking advantage of like kind exchange opportunities in the future.

What are “like-kind” exchanges and how can they be taken advantage of in this situation?

The like-kind exchange is, without question, the greatest existing tax dodge. Most commonly associated with real estate investors, it allows for the deferral of taxable income on the sale of a collectible by an investor (but NOT a collector/hobbyist). This happens by investing the sales proceeds in a similar investment. There are many complicated rules. The two most important are determining a “like kind” item and the timing on sale and purchase. Like kind items means a watch for Rolex limited edition fake watches (and not for a car or a collection of wine). Timing issues include the 45-day period after a sale to “identity” the new item to purchase and 180 days to close. (It is possible to purchase the 2nd item before selling the first.). Most importantly, the seller (and their attorney) are not permitted to “touch the sales proceeds”. Originally, the concept of a like kind exchange was just 2 parties swapping properties. That rarely happens today. Like kind exchanges are generally “3 party exchanges”. Fortunately, there are intermediary companies that specialize in this process, holding the funds, and guiding the investor on the like kind process (but not the complicated investor rules and other tax issues), generally at a very inexpensive cost.
