Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Replica
Kieran Culkin: Fake Rolex Datejust M126300-0017
It would appear Culkin, most known these days for his portrayal of Roman Roy on HBO’s Succession, has similar watch taste to his on-screen character. On his recent Hot Ones appearance, promoting the final season of the show, Kieran can be seen wearing a perfect replica Rolex Datejust with an “azzuro blue” dial with Roman numerals – a nod to his character’s name perhaps? I am glad to see he is following the unwritten rule of smooth bezel and oyster bracelet (whereas the fluted bezel is better paired with a jubilee).
John Mayer: Replica Rolex Daytona ref. 116599 Rainbow
Probably the most market-influencing celebrity watch collector, Mayer was the first guest on Hodinkee’s Talking Watches series. On each of his two videos with them, many of the references he discusses ultimately see a surge on the secondary market in the wake of the video’s release. Here John wore a highly sought after and valuable 1:1 replica Rolex Daytona ref. 116599 Rainbow in white gold to subtly match the tie-dye shirt beneath his sweater.
Megan Thee Stallion: Copy Rolex Sky-Dweller
Megan, was able to remain cool thanks to her Houston, Texas upbringing and the iced-out luxury copy Rolex Sky-Dweller on her wrist. The Swiss made replica Rolex Sky-Dweller, arguably Rolex’s most complicated modern watch, is by no means a dainty timepiece. In fact, it is one of the larger models in the catalogue clocking in at 42mm in diameter. The watch is known for being the latest take from aaa quality super clone Rolex on the ultimate traveller’s watch, with two timezones, date under a cyclops magnifier at 3′, along with the month via apertures framing the hour indices – or in the case of Megan’s discontinued variant of the ref. 326938 bold hour Arabics. The giveaway that it is, in fact, this reference is the dual-time ring rendered in white, something you would not find on other models such as a Datejust.
Before the 1960s, Swiss made replica Rolex housed third-party chronograph movements in Oyster cases. Then the company upped the case size, redesigned the dial and put out the space-age-sounding “Cosmograph.” Shortly thereafter, when the Crown sponsored races at Florida’s famous beach-side track and put its name on the dial, the legend of the cheap fake Rolex Daytona was born — though not to much fanfare. That would come later.
Paul Newman’s wife bought him one with a creamy Bauhaus-inspired dial — now called the “Newman” dial — and the famed actor casually gave it to his son-in-law (sometime in the 1980s), who auctioned it off for $17.2-million dollars in 2017. That made this once humble and unpopular 1:1 fake Rolex Daytona variant one of the most expensive wristwatches ever sold.
The auction transformed what was already becoming an increasingly coveted watch into a crazed run on all Daytonas, old and new. Now you can hardly get one at retail, especially in all stainless steel, and the used market for perfect replica Rolex Daytonas of any era in any style or metal with any dial has gone completely berserk. Like so many steel Professional models, the high quality fake Rolex Daytona remains in demand and sells above retail on the secondhand market — a remarkable result for what was initially an unremarkable watch.
As of 2023, the Rolex Daytona super clone for sale carries a new movement, 4131, which succeeds the 4130 that debuted in 2000 when Swiss movement copy Rolex first brought its movements in-house. To see it in all its glory, look no further than the platinum version of the watch (reference 126506), which has a unique exhibition caseback.
Two high end fake wristwatches with ties to Hollywood are headed to auction this summer.
Back in February, Sotheby’s announced a series of sales consisting of more than 300 individual items amassed by legendary actors Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. Now the auction house has shared that a pair of Newman’s historic perfect replica Rolexes will go under the gavel this summer. The Daytonas in question, which were owned and worn by the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof star, will lead the Sotheby’s Important Watches auction in New York on June 9 and are expected to sell for between $500,000 and $1 million, respectively.
The one-off “Zenith” top fake Rolex Daytona (ref. 16520) and the classic Daytona (ref. 116519) were acquired over the course of Woodward and Newman’s 50-year-long marriage, but each comes with its own special backstory. Newman was gifted the “Zenith” in 1995 after winning in the GTS-1 class at the 24 Hours of luxury replica Rolex Daytona. The stainless-steel chronograph, circa 1993, is inscribed with text that reads “Rolex at Daytona 24 Paul Newman Rolex Motorsports Man of the Year 1995” to mark the very occasion.
The veteran racer went on to put the watch up for auction in Antiquorum’s 1995 “Famous Faces” sale. It sold for $39,000 to benefit Newman’s charity, The Hole in the Wall Gang, which provides medically supervised summer camps and other free programs to kids with illnesses. Sotheby’s believes one of Newman’s loved ones bought the super clone watch back for him, though, as he was seen years later wearing it at events. Newman’s 1995 win at 24 Hours of cheap fake Rolex Daytona at age 70 made him the oldest to win the race. The achievement still stands in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Reference 116519, meanwhile, holds even great sentimental value. The white-gold chronograph, circa 2006, was a gift to Newman from his wife Joanne Woodward. The piece is one of three known Swiss made replica Rolex Daytonas gifted to the actor but is reportedly the last Daytona he received. It is distinguished by a caseback engraving that reads: “Drive Very Slowly Joanna.” Legend has it, the phrase was a reminder from his betrothed to keep his hands a 10 and 2. Fans will recall Newman sporting the piece at high-profile events from the Indy 500 to his iconic Barbara Walters interview in 2007.
“Paul Newman is a name in the world of horology that has withstood the test of time,” Leigh Safar, head of sale, Important Watches & Specialist, Americas, said in a statement. “Newman cemented his legacy with watch collectors through his influence on Swiss movement fake Rolex’s most sought-after model, the Daytona.”
From April 1 through 7, both cheap replica Rolex Daytonas will be on display at Sotheby’s Hong Kong. This actually coincides with the 50th-anniversary celebration of the auction house’s presence in Asia. This year also marks six decades years since the introduction of the Daytona.
“As high quality fake Rolex celebrates 60 years of the Daytona this year, we are proud to share in that milestone and present two models worn and owned by the Hollywood legend, which narrates the everlasting love he shared with his wife, Joanne, and his deep passion for racing,” Safar adds.
After Hong Kong, the super clone watches for sale will then journey to Los Angeles, Geneva, and beyond. You can place your bid on the pieces at the Important Watches auction in NY on June 9.
