14K Gold Paul Newman Daytona Ref. 6241 “John Player Special”
Fewer than 400 ref. 6241 Fake Rolex Daytonas were made in 14K gold and they were only produced from 1966 to 1969. The black Paul Newman dial has a really striking look, and while the watch does show some signs of having been worn, it is fresh to the market and still has the Rolex sticker intact on the back.
Designer Rolex Milgauss Ref. 6543
This is the original Rolex Milgauss Replica, one of the strangest watches Rolex has ever made. Designed for high resistance to magnetic fields, it was an extremely idiosyncratic watch and was only made for three years, from 1955 to 1957. This example has the original honeycomb dial, a straight second hand (not the lightning bolt), and a bezel graduated to 60 units (not the really weird six-unit bezel).
Luxury Swiss Rolex Explorer Dial Submariner Ref. 5513
This is one of the true holy grails of Rolex Replica collecting. Since so many out there are fakes when a good one comes up for auction, it’s a treat. This 1963 ref. 5513 has a distinctive dial with underline at six o’clock, a narrow coronet logo, and, of course, the Explorer-style 3-6-9 printing. The dial has also started to age, but all the better for the watch being honest. In fact, it’s brand new to the market and comes from the original family.
Vintage Rolex Ref. 3525 Chronograph With Salmon Dial
Dating to 1941, this is an early example of an Oyster chronograph and a damn good looking one at that. This exact watch, with its aged salmon dial and crisp case, has appeared in books by both Pucci Papaleo and John Goldberger. There are lots of little details to like here, including the serial number and reference number clearly stamped on the Caseback (later models of replica watches would show these between the lugs, of course).
Rolex Ref. 6098 With Luminous Honeycomb Star Dial
This is about as beautiful as a midcentury Rolex can get. This ref. 6098 from 1953 has a silvered honeycomb dial with luminous star-shaped markers that is in incredible condition. Only eight Replica Watches like this are known to exist and from the photo, we have here (along with Christie’s description), it looks like this one is in near-perfect shape.
Replica Rolex Submariner Ref. 16610 From Comex ‘Operation Everest’
On its own, a ref. 16610 Submariner would be nothing to write home about. But this watch belonged to Guillaume Despiau, a volunteer who took place in Comex’s famous “Operation Everest” experiment, which looked at how the human body reacted to conditions similar to those found at the peak of Everest over a sustained period of time. This watch accompanied him in the pressurized chamber during the one-month experiment and the watch comes with all the appropriate documentation to prove it.
