A ROLEX replica watch worth nearly €8,000 has been left stored in a safe at the Department of the Taoiseach for almost two years despite requests for it to be sold for charity.

The watch had been gifted to Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghaíl when he was visiting the United Arab Emirates in late 2018.
However, strict rules forbid the Ceann Comhairle from retaining such a valuable gift and it was handed over to the Department of the Taoiseach for safe-keeping.

Records released by the Department reveal they have made no further plans for the watch despite one collector expressing interest in purchasing it.

Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghaíl had requested that the €7,700 steel bracelet copy Rolex Milgauss be sold, and the money donated to the charity Trócaire.

However, even when a watch collector contacted the department asking for information on any future auction, he was told there were still no plans for its sale.
DECISION AWAITED
In an email to Secretary General Martin Fraser, the watch collector said: “As it is now over a year since your instructions were sought, I request that I be informed if a decision on the matter has been made, what that decision is, and if arrangements have been put in place for the disposal of the watch if it is to be disposed of in accordance with the reported wishes of the Ceann Comhairle.

“If a decision has not been made, can you please advise when such a decision will be made, and who has custody of the watch now.

“I am a collector of high-end fake watches and wish to be informed of any sale, auction, or disposal by any other means of the said watch.”

In response, the department said: “I refer to our telephone call yesterday evening, and confirm that at present there are no plans to sell the Rolex watch gifted to the Ceann Comhairle. If that changes, we will let you know.”

Asked again this week if any further steps had been taken for its disposal, a department spokesman said: “The watch remains in safe storage at the department.”

The watch itself is a Swiss movement fake Rolex Milgauss of a model that has been manufactured by the world-famous Swiss watchmakers since the 1950s.

It was specifically developed for scientists because it can withstand magnetic fields and was best known as the watch of choice for staff working at the famous CERN nuclear research lab in Geneva.

Unlike past presidents or VPs, like Bill Clinton (more on him later) and Biden (more on him earlier), President Obama didn’t get sucked into the vortex of watch collecting after leaving the office. Over the past four years, Obama’s mostly worn a Fitbit Ionic—if anything, a horological downgrade from the Jorg Grey on his wrist during his presidency.

White Dial Fake Rolex Cellini Watch

But there is one fine watch Obama keeps in his arsenal to pull out when the moment calls for it: a perfect replica Rolex Cellini in 18-carat white gold. The Cellini is Rolex’s version of a dress watch—all fine materials, a simple pared-down dial, and strapping leather band. Obama got his Cellini shortly after his second term ended and it’s the timepiece that appears in his official portrait.

A Datejust ref.1600 was actually my first fake Rolex. I still have it, and although that watch became a bit obsolete in my collection, I do cherish it. It is a classic and especially on a Jubilee bracelet, an incredibly comfortable watch to wear.
Later on, I added a luxury replica Rolex Datejust 16200 and even an OysterQuartz Datejust 17013. The Rolex Datejust 16200 didn’t add much to the Datejust 1600 in my opinion, so it had to go, but I regret selling the 17013 a bit. That is an awesome watch, despite horological purists are known to throw a bit up in their mouth when hearing the word “quartz” or “battery”.
Before I started writing this article, I took a 1986 brochure (with price list) from my drawer and looked up some of the prices back then. Sure, the prices were much different back then (a Datejust started at €1,330), but I found it interesting to see that there wasn’t much of a difference between the price of a mechanical Datejust and the OysterQuartz Datejust (€3,175 vs €3,135). Anyway, I made sure to include at least one OysterQuartz in this overview, and I have to say, it is tempting…


Rolex Datejust Ref.16013 Replica With Gold And Steel Bracelet
To me, this is the archetype of aaa quality fake Rolex Datejust. Steel & gold, or bi-color, that’s how a Datejust should be in my book. This 16013 dates back to 1978 and still has that Plexi crystal. It is also the first generation of Datejust watches with a quickset date feature. This particular model comes with a white dial and gold Roman numerals (applied). A handsome configuration. Another favorite of mine is the Datejust 16013 with tapestry dial. Anyway, the seller of this watch is located in Greece and claims this watch to be in very good condition (for 1978). The best 1:1 replica Rolex Datejust 16013 has caliber 3055 inside (where the balance wheel was not connected to a bridge but a cock instead) and comes on the Jubilee bracelet. Make sure to check whether the bracelet doesn’t have too much stretch. Click here for this offer on the Rolex Datejust 16013.

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.
