In this feature from the ReplicaTrust.com archives, we take a close look at the modern version of fake Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master, with black Cerachrom bezel and Oysterflex bracelet. Original photos are by Nik Schölzel.
A water-resistant Oyster case, large hour markers and bold hands are essential elements of Swiss fake Rolex’s Submariner, introduced in 1953 and made for use underwater. In contrast, best quality replica Rolex Yacht-Master, launched in 1992, is a luxury liner – equally at home on board a yacht on the high seas or on land at a ritzy yacht club. But to enjoy this luxury you’ll need to pay almost $25,000 for the 40-mm Everose gold and Cerachrom ceramic version shown here. Stainless-steel versions of the cheap copy Rolex Yacht-Master are priced about $13,000 less.
The Yacht-Master was the first watch in 1:1 fake Rolex’s Professional Oyster Collection to come in three different case sizes: 29, 35 and 40 mm. The luxury replica Rolex we tested, launched last year, is offered in two sizes: 37 and 40 mm. We chose the larger version, which we measured at precisely 40.19 mm in diameter and 11.49 mm in height (excluding the magnifying “Cyclops” lens for the date).
The well-known Cyclops date lens was patented by perfect replica Rolex in 1953 and introduced in 1954 on the Datejust. This magnifying device is made of sapphire, like the clone watch’s crystal, and has nonreflective coating on both sides. The jumping date advances exactly at midnight.
The high quality replica Rolex is powered by a seasoned caliber, the Rolex 3135, used in the very first cheap fake Rolex Yacht-Master in 1992. The 3135 debuted in 1988 in the copy Rolex Submariner. The blue Parachrom balance spring was added to the movement in 2005, five years after it was first introduced in the AAA fake Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. Its paramagnetic alloy resists changes caused by temperature variations and magnetic fields.
The entire construction ensures rate results that bring the top Swiss fake Rolex Yacht-Master (as well as the other watches in the Oyster collection) to the rank of “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified.” These words on the perfect replica Rolex Yacht-Master’s dial mean that the watch has endured 15 days and nights of testing by COSC in addition to a series of tests conducted by high quality copy Rolex in its own laboratory. Acceptable rate results for a Superlative Chronometer allow deviations of less than +/-2 seconds per day, while COSC’s test permits average deviations between -4 and +6 seconds per day. In addition, wholesale replica Rolex’s tests are carried out under conditions that correspond more closely to real-life situations than COSC’s tests and are conducted on fully assembled super clone watches, while COSC tests just the movements.
This watch is the first Rolex replica online with an Oysterflex bracelet. (We use the term “bracelet” rather than “strap” because the Oysterflex, unlike standard rubber straps, has metal on the inside.) Combining a rubber strap with a gold case is nothing new, but at Swiss made fake Rolex, known for its conservative approach to design, it’s a major innovation. The patented bracelet has a core made of nickel-titanium alloy blades, which provide excellent flexibility and are coated with a black elastomer, a synthetic type of rubber. When the material is subjected to tension and pressure, it returns to its original shape quickly.
