Servicing An Ultra-Rare Vintage 1:1 Fake Rolex Submariner Ref. 6200 “King Sub”

Posted on Updated on

Vintage Rolex replica for sale is a treasure trove for dedicated collectors. Within that little sub-universe, there are grail Swiss super clone watches that stand out above the rest. Today, we are looking at one that is pretty high up on many aficionados’ lists. This is the cheap fake Rolex Submariner ref. 6200, also known as the King Sub. My friends at Tempus had one in for service and kindly provided a ton of great pictures of the process. This gives me a good excuse to have a closer look at this rare beast.

The perfect replica Rolex Submariner ref. 6200 is also referred to as the Explorer-dial Sub for its atypical numerals at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. With an estimated 300 produced almost 70 years ago, this is about as collectible as they come.

The first-ever luxury fake Rolex to say “Submariner” on the dial had the reference number 6204. That watch was presented to the public in 1954, but the earliest serial numbers date back to late 1953. You will easily recognize a 6204 as a cheap replica Rolex Submariner, although many of its characteristic features hadn’t materialized. There was no Mercedes-style hour hand just yet, for instance. Swiss movement fake Rolex also used a small crown at first before getting into the big-crown era that would soon follow.

The high quality replica Rolex Submariner ref. 6200 was produced from 1955 to 1956, putting it very close to the first model, ref. 6204. Paired with the fact that it has a lower reference number, it makes you wonder whether the original plans for it perhaps predate the 6204. I don’t think so because some of the aesthetic features here debuted on the 1954 ref. 6205. The Mercedes hand, for instance, was introduced during the 6205 window. The crown on that watch had also started to grow, forming a perfect stepping stone between refs. 6204 and 6200.

In 1955, the 6200 made its debut, and it remains a bit of an outlier in the top quality fake Rolex Submariner line thanks to its dial. The so-called “Explorer dial” features the 3-6-9 Arabic-numeral layout. This is usually reserved for the Explorer, with hashes in place of the numerals on most Submariners.

The Submariner ref. 6200
Early Rolex Submariner replica watches online follow each other in quick succession. As a result, the 6200’s production window only lasted from 1955 to 1956. The 6200 measures 38mm across, but it is a bit thicker than its predecessors. This was also the first Sub to have its water resistance officially rated to 200 meters, though it is not printed on the dial as it would be on later models.

Fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean with caliber 2500
Swiss made fake Omega had a strong streak of releases in the early to mid-2000s. Besides the Seamaster 300M ref. 2254.50.00, which Nacho owns, the brand also released the Planet Ocean series. My favorites are the ones equipped with perfect replica Omega’s ETA 2892-based caliber 2500. These watches were the first generation of the Planet Ocean and, in my humble opinion, visually the nicest. Introduced in 2005, the 42mm versions are future neo-vintage classics.

The design of this watch harks back to the iconic 1:1 fake Omega Seamaster 300 of the 1960s, with a wonderful font for the numerals at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock. The simple black-bezel version is the classiest by far, and while they also came in a 45mm case size, I’d always opt for the 42mm version. These watches are available in good condition in the mid-€3,000s on a bracelet. I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather own one of these than the luxury replica Omega Seamaster 300M or even a Speedmaster.

Early Replica Rolex Oyster Precision watches
AAA quality replica Rolex got a lot of attention at this year’s Watches and Wonders for releasing many models in precious metals. I’ve never been drawn to the Rolex stable outside of the stainless steel models. And I particularly like the modern Explorer. But what I appreciate even more are vintage Rolex watches, especially the humble manual-wind Rolex Oyster Precision fake watches for sale. These watches are simple and elegant with the core DNA of what made Rolex great. If I were to consider picking up a Rolex today, it would be one of these. Prices vary greatly, but good examples with a Swiss movement replica Rolex bracelet are available in the mid-€2,000s. I’d argue that these high quality replica watches have a bigger cool factor than anything we saw this year from the brand, but that’s highly subjective. Regardless, with 34mm Oyster cases that wear more like a 35–36mm case, these are fantastic timepieces.

In the past decade, we have witnessed several trends in the watch industry; blue and then green dials, slightly smaller cases making a comeback, integrated bracelets… And mostly, a strong focus of brands on casual, if not sporty replica watches online. For too long, the elegant dress watch has been forgotten. But it seems that it is slowly making its comeback. During the Geneva Watch Week 2024, we have seen more dress watches than ever in the past decade, yet with one important fact to take into account… Dress fake watches for sale aren’t classic anymore, but now come with colours and a certain casualness.

One of the least expected new models from perfect replica Rolex this year… but also one of the most appealing watches of the Crown. Successfully launched last year, the cheap fake Rolex Perpetual 1908 collection already made quite an impact in its discreet gold versions with matte white or black dials.

But this year, Swiss made fake Rolex came with something unexpected yet highly elegant, a platinum edition with… a hand-guilloche dial. And to add to the beauty of this watch, the rice-grain texture (made traditionally on a lathe) is combined with a classic aaa quality copy Rolex ice-blue tone. The result stands out and has an undeniable charm and elegance. The back, with its in-house calibre 7140 visible under a sapphire crystal, also makes quite an impression. At 31k euros, it’s not what I’d call an affordable copy watch but the price feels justified.

Quick facts: 39mm x 9.50mm platinum case – sapphire crystals front and back – hand-guilloche with ice blue colour and rice-grain motif, solid gold hands and markers – in-house calibre 7140, Superlative Chronometer, automatic, Chronergy escapement, 66h power reserve – alligator leather in matte black or matte brown, platinum folding clasp – reference 52506 – EUR 31,300
