70 YEARS – THE FAKE ROLEX SUBMARINER (1953)
Although this wasn’t the first modern dive watch, the cheap replica Rolex Submariner is one of the earliest models ever created – just a few months after the Fifty Fathoms and the Zodiac Sea Wolf – and is by far the most influential model… It is a watch that has defined the category for 70 years and is still going strong. Indeed, this year the luxury fake Rolex Submariner is celebrating seven decades of continuous production and gradual evolution. Will we see a commemorative model? Nothing is certain, as perfect fake Rolex can but doesn’t always celebrate these jubilees. We saw a 50-year model in 2003 (the green bezel Kermit 16610LV), but no certainty regarding a possible anniversary edition to be released in 2023.
70 YEARS – THE REPLICA ROLEX EXPLORER (1953)
The year 1953 is often associated at best 1:1 replica Rolex with the birth of the Submariner. However, there’s another important model that was released that same year, a watch that has also been in continuous production ever since its release: the Explorer. Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary became the first explorers to conquer the summit of Mount Everest; on his wrist, Norgay wore an AAA quality fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual reference 6098. Following their triumphant ascent, the brand released a watch dedicated to exploration, appropriately named the Explorer. This high quality fake Rolex is also celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. As with the Submariner above, nothing indicates that the crown will release a special edition, which would be based on the current 36mm. Nevertheless, we can still dream about the idea of a white polar version…
