This quality 1:1 fake Yacht-Master 16622 is one of the most worth having cheap fake Rolex watches. The Yacht-Master was introduced in 1992 as a full gold watch, and this Rolesium version came only in 1999. Rolesium is Rolex’s own definition of the combination of platinum and steel. The bezel of the Rolex Yacht-Master 16622 is made of a block of platinum. Also, the dial is made of platinum.
It makes the perfect replica watch a little bit heavier than other sports models. The fact that it has a PCL (polished center link), platinum bezel and dial, and a somewhat rounder and more polished case, results in the Yacht-Master being not everyone’s darling like a Submariner or GMT-Master.
Inside is the same movement as the Rolex Sea-Dweller and Submariner of the same generation (caliber 3135). I like it, and I have one, and I couldn’t care less about what others think of it. It is a wonderful watch, also very suitable for a bit more formal wear. Or just as a daily beater. Up to you.
At its beginning, in 1954, the bezel of the GMT-Master II was made of Plexiglas and the color and the white scale were printed on the underside. From 1959 to 2007, quality fake Rolex produced the bezel in aluminum, with the colors applied via an anodizing process. This was followed by a track made of zirconium oxide ceramic and with it, problems with the color. Monochromatic bezels were standard since two-tone tracks appeared to be a technical impossibility. But Rolex persisted in its research and found a solution for the first Batman by 2013. It developed and patented a process for the monobloc bezel that added a metallic salt on one half of the bezel prior to heat treatment in a kiln. The final colors were produced by sintering in a kiln at 1,600 degrees Celsius for more than 24 hours.
A second problem was achieving the desired red color for the blue-and-red Pepsi bezel, since there is no mineral-based pigment that produces a rich red. After years of research, perfect Rolex replica came to rely on a ceramic based on aluminum oxide and added chromium oxide, magnesium oxide and a rare-earth oxide to produce the red half of the ceramic bezel. For the blue color, one half of the bezel was saturated again with a metallic salt solution prior to sintering.
The bezels of the Batman and the Pepsi are based on different ceramic substances, zirconium oxide and aluminum oxide, which explains why the blue colors on the two bezels look so different. On our test watch, the blue appears much brighter than on the new Pepsi model. However, the incident light plays a major role on our perception of color and as always, there are slight differences among the Pepsi bezels.
Both materials forming the track condense and shrink during the sintering process and must be machined with diamond tools to the exact measurements. To ensure that the numerals remain perfectly legible, the entire ring is coated with platinum using a PVD process and then carefully polished to leave the precious metal behind in the recessed dots and numerals. Both processes have been patented by Swiss made fake Rolex. In addition to its scratch resistance, the ceramic bezels have the additional advantage of being UV resistant and do not fade.
A black dial fake Rolex Submariner with an ultra-rare 3-6-9 dial has sold for £227,000 at Gardiner Houlgate auctioneers.
David Hare, director at Gardiner Houlgate (pictured top with the Rolex), said ahead of the sale that he expected it to sell for more than £200,000.
“This is the holy grail of vintage watches,” Mr Hare he said in September. “There are so few of these left in their original condition that they command very high prices and are sought after by collectors all over the world. This particular Swiss movement Rolex replica watch has a version of the dial that experts call a ‘Crown-62’ variation, which makes it even rarer. When we sold a similar Rolex in 2016 it went for £192,000,” The Rolex Submariner 5512 was bought by its original owner — a medical attendant at a Nottinghamshire coal mine, for just £70 in 1964. The 56-year-old Rolex Submariner replica watch with steel bracelet is in strikingly good condition, with barely a mark on its glass, bezel, case and bracelet and just a little lume lost from its minutes hand. It is also being sold in its original box.
The copy Rolex Submariner has been in the same family for its entire life, and was put up for auction by its original owner’s daughter and son-in-law. They have not been named, but did speak about their surprise at discovering the possible value of the watch ahead of the sale.
“Things like this just don’t happen to us. Having worked all our lives to be able to enjoy retirement, this will give my wife and I the added financial security we’ve dreamt of,” the son-in-law said.
