The UK luxury fake Rolex that changed its red and blue stripes, catch-ups on Clubhouse

Let me start by saying that I’ve had quite the week. Summer doesn’t seem to want to end, the T+T Team are working really hard on a few very exciting projects that we’ll be able to announce soon, but that wasn’t all. We were lucky enough to attend the first replica watch event in real life for the first time in almost exactly a year and it was great to catch up with several Melbourne-based collectors, as well as see some pretty special watches up close and personal.

Also, this week we took a close look at a watch that isn’t a new release, but does have a new element to it. The watch in question is the black dial fake Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126710 BLRO that was released in 2018. The element I’m referring to is the colour of the bezel, which has been a hot topic of conversation at T+T HQ. Is the bezel different at all, or is it just the lighting? If it has changed, what are the differences in colour? In our video review, Andrew recalls seeing the watch for the first time at Baselworld and wondering if there had been a mistake, or if these were the colours that Rolex had originally intended? The red seemed more like purple. And the blue, a bright violet?
In a photo we tracked down by @swisswatchonist the riddle looks to be solved. When the Swiss movement copy Rolex Ref. 126710 BLRO was first released, Rolex may have used the bezels (known as MK1) from the first ever Cerachrom Pepsi bezel from the white gold GMT Master-II Ref. 116719 BLRO, before tweaking the ceramic composite mix to create the darker, more saturated and infinitely less bright MK2 bezels that we see today. You can see the most recent steel 126710 models side by side in our video below.
Interestingly in a post on the Rolex Forums however, the MK1 bezels actually look to be a lot closer to the colours of the previous generation of Pepsi in the Ref. 16710, both in their shade and how bright they are.
Regardless of what the exact reason behind the differences in colour, the blue and red bezel copy Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 126710 BLRO is a watch with a lot of history and a lot of hype behind it, so make sure you check out the review to see if it lives up to all the love that it gets.

Have a great weekend!

Swiss Movement Rolex Yacht-Master 16622 Replica Watches Online For Sale

For me, it is not so much about the price tag or brand name on the dial. I either like a replica watch or I don’t. However, I have been known to be a bit rash on occasion. Several times this year, I pulled the trigger without really thinking about it. This generally leads to more amusement than regret (as some of the Fratelli will gladly tell you). It is a shame that these poor, ticking souls enter my collection to die, but I like to think it’s really their own fault for not being very good… These watches often end up in this box that I have labeled, “the watches that never got worn”. It is not necessarily that I don’t like them. Sometimes, I just struggle to find a use for them.

Hated by many Rolex enthusiasts, but loved by yours truly! I always had a weak spot for the Rolex Yacht-Master replica with gray dial. It is a bit of an anti-Rolex by Rolex. Introduced in 1992, it took Rolex till 1999 to come up with this steel & platinum version. With a bi-directional bezel (completely useless to divers), and the rounded case shape and polished center link also made it somehow closer to the Daytona design than that of a Submariner. I am not a diver anyway, so that’s perfectly fine for me. Not everything needs to make sense anyway. Back in 2007, I had a Yacht-Master (from 2004) and, at some point, I traded it to fund an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.

I always kinda missed the Yacht-Master though, especially during summertime. The dial is made of platinum and it has this nice sparkle when worn in sunlight. What I did have, was this Rolex Submariner 114060 replica that I actually never found myself wearing. This could be the stupidest move from a financial standpoint, but I decided to sell that Submariner and get that Yacht-Master back. I found a nice pre-owned Swiss made copy Rolex Yacht-Master (also from 2004) being sold by my friends from Burger in Maastricht and purchased it for approximately €8,000. It is the one without the Rolex clone rehaut and with the first platinum dial, which seems to have a coarser grain than the later (post-2007) ones. It is not something I wear often, but, when I do, I enjoy it.
