Perhaps the year’s biggest surprise for me was the top super clone Rolex Perpetual 1908 watches, the first true dress watch from Rolex in a long time. I had heard rumours of a more classical Rolex prior to Watches & Wonders, but expected an Oyster in formal dress, as the somewhat chunky Cellini was before.
But instead the 1908 is just 39 mm in diameter and 9.5 mm high, idea dimensions for a modern-day dress watch, and powered by an all-new movement, the cal. 7140. The movement is appealing decorated – surprisingly for UK AAA Rolex replica watches – and comparable to other industrial haute horlogerie offerings at the same price point, from Jaeger-LeCoultre or H. Moser & Cie. for instance.
However, the cheap Rolex 1908 super clone watches has major advantage over its rivals, which is its Oyster case. Although it is thinner than any other Oyster model, the case still has a solid, 50 m water resistance, along with the trademark fluted bezel and screw-down back. The evident robustness of the case is surprising given its relatively compact size.
The only downside of the luxury Rolex 1908 fake watches is the dial that’s sort of historically inspired but not quite perfect. But given that the 1908 is the opening act in the Perpetual collection, I can foresee more good things to come, albeit at the relaxed pace typical of Rolex.
Another of the year’s unexpected highlights came also from Rolex, the high quality super clone Rolex Cosmograph Daytona “Le Mans” ref. 126529LN watches. To start with, the Daytona “Le Mans” was launched off-season, in June instead of during Watches & Wonders in March. Rolex historically never debuted watches outside of the annual trade fair, though it has been doing so more often, with last year seeing the launch of the Deepsea Challenge in November.
As for the perfect Rolex copy watches, it was surprising in two aspects. One is aesthetics: the chronograph registers are inspired by the vintage Daytona “Paul Newman”. Rolex hardly ever makes such overt references to historical models.
The other, arguably more significant, is the movement. Inside the Swiss made replica Rolex watches is the cal. 4132, an evolution of the cal. 4131 found in the standard, and now second-generation, Daytona.
The technical changes are modest but smartly done – seven additional components, primarily reducing gears, that half the rate of rotation of the hour counter but preserve the same movement thickness. So the hour counter completes one revolution every 24 hours – a nod to the 24 hours of Le Mans – while the standard Rolex Daytona super clone watches online has a 12-hour counter.
Though a minor tweak, it’s a substantial change for an evolutionary new model. Most other brands would simply dress up a watch in racing livery and call it a day.
