I’ve spoken about it not once but twice before; the perfect replica Rolex Explorer II reference 16570 is my (realistic) grail watch. It’s actually the only Rolex reference that I feel any true desire to own. Don’t get me wrong; I appreciate many other models from the brand’s past. I love a five-digit no-date Sub as much as the next guy. But something about the current state of The Crown doesn’t really do it for me. The only luxury fake Rolex UK in the current catalog that I’d feel any desire to spend money on would be the current Explorer (reference 124270). As with Omega, many modern models are simply a bit too shiny and luxurious for my taste. Plus, going with a slightly less obvious 1:1 copy Rolex model certainly adds some peace of mind. The polar-dial 1:1 replica Rolex Explorer II also flies (relatively) under the radar, and I appreciate its history, its functionality, and its looks.
These days, the prices have bounced back slightly from the peak they reached about six months ago. You can find one in good used condition with its box and papers for around €7,500. I would always prioritize condition over unwearable extras, though. Another qualifying consideration that I’d stick to would be to opt for one of the more modern super clone watches online.
Here, you have the benefit of working lume (Super-LumiNova rather than tritium) and solid end links. This Swiss movement replica Rolex UK remains a grail for me, even two years after I first wrote about it and four after I started lusting after it. Given a non-hypothetical €25,000, you can rest assured that a healthy portion of it would go towards a 16570. For now, though, I’ll continue saving up and hoping that someday, I’ll make peace with spending almost €8,000 on a copy watch online that, once upon a time, changed hands for half of that.
