Since its inception in the early 1900s, the brand has consistently put emphasis on quality craftsmanship and materials for a product that is synonymous with refinement and precision.
There’s no easier way to humble brag about your success than by wearing a Rolex watch, and that’s probably why the brand is also synonymous with knock-offs and replica watches. Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for the real thing when you can geta close facsimile for less than $100? affordable and not so affordable – depending on where you fall in the scheme of things. And why even spend that much when you can just get a 3D printer to churn one out?
Vintage Replica Rolex watches are all about the minutiae. The size of a serif or the placement of hash mark can be the difference between a mundane $5,000 watch and a drool-worthy $50,000 watch. You don’t need to know any of that to recognize that this GMT-Master is something special. The caramel brown dial was black when it originally came out of the factory and the original two-tone Bakelite bezel was only made for a short time in the early 1950s.
