As an unabashed best US Rolex Explorer replica watches lover, this pick was easy. Our most recent Reference Points is the leader in the clubhouse for my favorite article of 2022 – and it posted a score of 24 under par. It would take a story like Jeff Hilliard’s “Finding My Father In His Watch” to top Jon Bues’ and Eric Wind’s presentation of A Comprehensive Collector’s Guide To The Rolex Explorer I for me.
The Watch I Wore Most In 2021 is a no-brainer – 1963 top fake Rolex Explorer ref. 1016 watches. It has a glossy or gilt black dial, a 36mm diameter, and no date – in my opinion, it’s one of the best wristwatches ever produced. While it is right there in the name, my pick for this week was not so much of a no-brainer. Yes, this ref. 5700 is from 1963, as well, but the similarities end there. This is a creamy white dial, 35mm, date Swiss made Rolex replica watches that is, in my opinion, the top wristwatch we are offering this week.
This is an uncommon vintage Rolex copy watches for sale; the rarity alone is enough to draw me in. As I turned my undivided attention to the watch, it really backed up the hype I had created in my head just seconds ago. The dial tone is lovely, with just enough patina to take on a panna cotta tone when it wants to while also appearing undeniably white at a glance. The size is worthy of note, as well. Most Air-Kings of this period check in right at 34mm, but this 5700 is actually slightly larger, measuring 35mm. I took my calipers to the Swiss movements replica Rolex watches over and over again to confirm. On a period-correct, rivet link Oyster bracelet, the watch is well-sized on my 7.25″ wrist, sitting somewhere between unmistakably vintage and completely discreet.
Let’s say you’ve always said to yourself, “I just wish the Explorer had a date function and a white dial, arg!” You would be wrong about that take, but, lucky for you (and me) Rolex made both the 1016 and this high quality super clone Rolex Explorer Date watches.
