Rolex has a strange power over people. Despite my industry experience, I am not an exception to that rule. In fact, perhaps it is exactly because of that experience that I allow myself to submit to its power. I’ve not always been this way. I’ve been through phases during which I flat-out rejected the very suggestion that I might ever own a Rolex, let alone wear one out of choice. Those days are gone. And now, as of two weeks ago, a new era has begun. I bought a Rolex. It was a pre-owned quality replica Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694. Nothing odd about that, I hear you say. But what would you think if I told you I hadn’t spent a moment’s thought on this model until five minutes before I pulled the trigger? Insane or inspired? You decide…

My relationship with Swiss made fake Rolex has evolved over the years. What began as distant respect, morphed into interest, quickly transformed into disinterest, shifted through a phase of active dismissal, before slowly becoming admiration and then desire. Exactly what I desired from the Crown has been just as inconsistent throughout the years. My prime focus began with the DateJust 36, moved to the GMT Master II, was, for a while, the modern Explorer II, then the Sea-Dweller, then the GMT Master II (again), before returning to the Rolesor revelation that started it all. I’ve trawled vintage sites for years, looking for that unmissable opportunity. I saw some good stuff. But I found nothing that fit the bill exactly.

Champagne Dial Fake Rolex Datejust Watch

Club Rolex

The closest I came to joining “Club Rolex” was when a Rolesor Datejust with a champagne dial from 1986 hit the web priced around $3,500. That was maybe 18 months ago. I ummed and ahhed over that piece one “um” and several “ahhs” too long. It sold. At the time I thought it was a fair and tempting price for a pre-loved piece in such excellent condition. I have seen few in that ballpark since, however. Prices have continued to climb. This probably has a lot to do with Rolex finally hiking the RRP up to where it feels it should be, along with the controlled scarcity of new models. Now, more than ever, the pre-owned market is the place to go for perfect fake Rolex. And so, for me, the question became more one of timing than anything else.

A good deal

Despite a bucket-load of connections in the watchmaking world, I spent 99% of my Rolex hunt on websites rather than talking to people directly. I’ve learned that was maybe not the best strategy. During my search, I’d amassed a solid understanding of what constituted a good price, and yet, those figures were inflated by the sellers factoring in the associated costs of listing their wares on an established marketplace.

However, as someone who believes in paying for the sometimes invisible services and assurances provided by these platforms, I reasoned it made more sense (for me personally) to continue in this vein. My interest slowly developed into an obsession with a few pieces that I hope I would have the guts to spring for should they ever become available at a “good” price.

I was experiencing this stage of thinking around eight months ago. I had “narrowed” my field of interest to three models. The Datejust 36 in steel and yellow gold (with either a champagne or linen dial) was still present. The GMT Master II (either a vintage Coke or a modern Root Beer) had hung around for the long haul. And the modern Explorer II (black dial) seemed an attractive option given its lower pre-owned premium than many other extant models (if only it were 40mm…). And then the Oysterdate Precision 6694 came into my life…

A checklist

Through this journey, I had amassed a checklist of what was most important to me beyond the idea of a “good” price. The condition was key, but timelessness was also a necessity. I do not buy watches to sell. While my obsession with finding a good Rolex at a good price seems to point to my having at least some interest in resale, it does not. I simply didn’t want to pay over the odds for the hype. Yes, the GMT Master II is a flashy model with a high recognition factor, but it was not the reason I sought it. The other two models on my list were, by comparison, pretty under-the-radar Rolexes. And that really appealed to me.

I wanted to buy a Rolex, not so I could tell everyone else I bought a Rolex (this article wasn’t planned, but, spoiler alert: I bought a Rolex), but because I wanted to experience it firsthand. It was very important for me to learn about the process and my own reactions to it. What was I doing right? What was I doing wrong? How could my endeavor be useful to other people?

A mistake

I alluded to one “mistake” I made earlier. I didn’t talk to enough people. As soon as I did, I unearthed a whole world of off-grid trading of which I’d been mostly unaware. Models would trade hands for often crazily low prices. It seems that, in some corners of this world, such a thing as a bargain Rolex still exists.

Why aren’t these models trading for the prices we might expect a pre-loved Rolex to command? Well, often, they were being sold by or moved between collectors trading at eye-level. A favor here, a favor there, a mutually-beneficial deal of which the Rolex sale may have been a part. But also, because a lot of these watches were not “collector friendly”. They lacked boxes, papers, a recent service, or even the condition one might hope to find at “regular” pre-loved prices. Some of them were projects, but oftentimes, they were simply models everyone seems to have forgotten about. The Oysterdate Precision 6694 is one of those.

Black Dial Fake Rolex Explorer Watch

Oysterdate Precision

And then, just a couple of weeks ago, a friend of a friend offered an Oysterdate Precision for sale, directly to my friend. He has an insatiable taste for “bling bling” AAA best fake Rolex watches and had no interest in the humble, 34mm, manually-wound Oysterdate Precision 6694. He offered it to me immediately. I couldn’t quite believe what I was seeing. Was this a Datejust? No, but it was a Rolex with a date. Did it have its box and papers? No, it was flying solo. Was it in the best condition I’d ever seen? Heck no, but the dial and hands appeared original and correct, and the small spots of damage or patina I could identify from the photos didn’t phase me at all.

The case and bracelet looked like they’d taken a tumble down three flights of stairs while trading blows with a brick-monster, but despite what was clearly an amateurish attempt at refinishing, the edges looked just about intact enough to promise a resurrection in the hands of a seasoned pro.

Part of the reason I think the Oysterdate Precision, which was a pretty long-lived and popular model during its day, is so rarely seen or talked about is its manual movement. Rolex is of course best known for its automatic watches. But how much does that automatic winding work really mean to you? To me, it seems, it didn’t mean much at all.

The perfect rotational Rolex

I have a lot of watches. I rarely wear the same piece more than two or three days in a row. Consequently, I have to wind pretty much every watch I haul out of the box. Manual winding watches are also something I really love. I love the slimness. I love the daily interaction with them. And, perhaps most of all, I love how it feels to have a little slice of history on my wrist. They are so anachronistic, they make an automatic look like the Apollo Lunar Module.

And so, trading automatic winding and that part of Rolex’s history for a manual movement (still made by Rolex) in an under-the-radar gem, with an acceptably patinated dial, and a case that looked like it could be saved from death’s door was the perfect combination I hadn’t predicted. And at €1,200, I couldn’t say no. That price left enough to pour €300–400 into a service and refinish from a trusted watchmaker without pushing me anywhere near the €2–3,000 these 6694 models are regularly listed for online.

And so I got lucky. I ended up with a Rolex I never saw coming. Maybe this piece will be a cost-effective way to scratch the Rolex itch. Maybe, just maybe, it will end up costing me a lot more if this curiosity develops into addiction. Regardless, I couldn’t be happier I waited as long as I did, and I can’t wait to share more images with you when the watch has been given some much needed TLC.

First appearing during the 1950s, the perfect Rolex Date replica offers much of the same design and functionality as the classic 36mm Datejust, but with a smaller 34mm case diameter. Although it has existed as a number of different references over the years, the reference 1500 is the quintessential example of Rolex’s smaller date-displaying wristwatch. First appearing during the early 1960s and remaining in production through the end of the 1970s, the Rolex Date ref. 1500 was produced in a number of different materials and fitted with a variety of different dials over the course of its production.

Fake Rolex 1500 Watch With Date Window

The best fake Rolex Date 1500 could just as easily be considered a date-displaying version of the classic 34mm Oyster Perpetual as it could a 2mm smaller version of the Datejust. Although it was never offered with quite the same range of options as the Datejust collection, the Rolex Date reference 1500 does share the exact same COSC-certified movement as Rolex’s Datejust watches from the same era. Unlike some of Rolex’s other watches with 34mm case diameters, such as the Air-King and Oysterdate (which were not chronometer-certified), the Rolex Date makes absolutely zero compromises in regards to timekeeping accuracy or overall reliability.

34MM Replica Rolex Date 1500 Watch

As one of the least expensive vintage Swiss made Rolex watches replica, the reference 1500 Rolex Date offers tremendous value for the money, and represents classic Rolex at its very best. Aside from its functional design, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date ref: 1500 is an appealing timepiece to own due to its easy-to-wear design that has remained timeless throughout the past half a century. With most examples priced between $2,500 and $5,000 on the pre-owned market, it’s also incredibly affordable for a timeless classic from the world’s most famous luxury watch manufacturer. Let’s take a look at the Rolex Date 1500 and its key features in a little more detail.

Earlier in the week we uncovered a group of celebrities whose daily weapon of choice is not just a modded Rolex replica, but a modded Milgauss. And not just modded, fully blacked-out, including the bracelet. In our research for that story, with a little help from Nick Gould, we discovered this example – David Beckham wearing a murdered-out black ceramic bezel fake Rolex Sea-Dweller. Never forget that Becks is a proper watch addict. Tudor ambassador he may be, but connoisseur of many other models he remains! Also including some pretty unusual Tudor references, one of which is included below for good measure.

David Beckham – Rolex Sea-Dweller
David Beckham is widely known as a Tudor ambassador – and is frequently spotted wearing variations of the Black Bay lineup. That being said, the soccer legend has been known to wear other luxury watch brands as well – including a custom blacked-out Rolex Sea-Dweller copy with black steel bracelet.
The black DLC or PVD treatment really mutes down the flashy nature of the watch, deadening and making non-reflective its high-polished surfaces. High quality replica Rolex is known for making watches that can be immediately recognised from afar. The stealth factor, inherent in all black designs, makes the watch much more under the radar – pairing well with Beckham’s signature black T-shirt and jeans look.

And here’s that custom Tudor we mentioned…
Earlier in the year, we reported that Beckam’s Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami – or Inter Miami – played and lost their first two games before having the league shut down for a month due to COVID-19. On the plus side, Beckham has already wangled a new watch out of it. The 44-year-old has been spotted with a rare custom Tudor Pelagos dangling from his heavily tattooed wrist.
In modern diving-watch circles, the Pelagos rates highly — it won the prestigious Best Sports Watch category at the 2015 GPHG Awards. Nicely sized at 42mm, it’s got a lightweight build thanks to its titanium case, a ceramic bezel, auto-adjusting clasp, plus a highly respectable 500m of water resistance.

At first glance, you may not recognize one of the more noteworthy increases in the new replica Rolex Submariner 41mm collection. Rolex has indeed changed the lug width on these upgraded models. For decades, Rolex Submariners, GMT Masters, and almost every other Rolex Professional model featured 20mm wide lugs, which is coincidentally the industry-standard lug width for tool watches.
Not anymore! The new Submariner collection indeed features 21mm wide lugs. This change was made to make room for a broader Oyster bracelet, which the brand says is redesigned from clasp to lug. More on that later.

When you hear the terms “slimming,” “width,” “upsized,” etc., you would generally think that with a watch such as this, the next logical change would be in the thickness of the case. However, based on our measurements, the new collection maintains the same thickness (approx. 12mm) as its predecessor.
Now that we’ve gone through the finer points of the steel case fake Rolex Submariner 41mm’s case. Let’s talk about one final point, the crown. We would be remiss if we didn’t shine a light on this critical piece of dive watch hardware. The updated Submariner features small refinements to its Triplock crown.
As you can see in the images, the guards surrounding the Submariner 41mm’s crown look slightly different from its predecessor. This is due to slight changes to these guards’ design, causing them to become somewhat more angled as they taper towards the case.
Another central talking point of the Submariner 41mm is its Oyster bracelet, which has been redesigned. The majority of these updates were done to complement the updated case proportions. As we hinted at earlier, the bracelet was widened by approx. 1mm to fit the increased lug width. This widening is carried throughout the 3-link Oystersteel bracelet as it tapers from the Oysterclasp up to the integrated end-links.
Color Waves
One of the reasons collectors love the Submariner is the diverse assortment of color options available throughout the lineup. Any subtle changes to these models are long-rumored and discussed before their announcements and long-debated after their release.
Fans of The Crown always go crazy when the brand changes the beloved Submariner’s color palettes. While the brand didn’t bring forth any new color codes in the Submariner 41mm, it did make two very notable changes to its two most colorful models.
the now-discontinued ref. 116610LV (aka “Hulk”) Submariner Date has been replaced with the stainless steel bracelet fake Rolex Submariner ref.126610LV. Like its counterpart, it also features a black dial, but in this case, it brings over the green bezel from its predecessor.
Rolex has made very gradual improvements to the dials in the Submariner 41mm. One thing that struck my eye was the “Swiss Made” insignia at six o’clock.

As you’ll see in the photos, the brand has opted to place the Rolex coronet (crown) between the words “Swiss” and “Made.”
New Movement
Lastly, Rolex has brought forward its latest movement innovations to the new Submariner 41mm. Notably, there are new calibres in play across this comprehensive lineup. The cheap Rolex Submariner ref.124060 replica watch is equipped with Calibre 3235 powers the Submariner Date models, and the Calibre 3230 is found in the no-date model. Both movements are automatic winding and COSC-certified.
This new movement boasts a power reserve of approximately 70 hours compared to its predecessor’s 48 hours. Also, these new movements include Rolex’s Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and its proprietary Chronergy escapement.
