Nicolas Cage is constantly shrinking the distance between himself and the characters he plays in movies. He once told the New York Times that he was on a literal grail quest, almost exactly like his character in National Treasure. He is playing (an exaggerated version of) himself in the upcoming movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. On and off-screen Cage have another thing in common: They love perfect fake Rolex watches. In 1992’s Honeymoon in Vegas, Cage seems so fond of the brand that he wears three Swiss replica Rolex watches at once (what appears to be a Submariner and Day-Date on one hand, and a Datejust on the other).
Cage’s characters also have a penchant for using AAA Rolex replica watches UK to get out of a jam. In ‘95’s Leaving Las Vegas—which is not, believe it or not, the sequel to Honeymoon in Vegas—Cage enters a pawn shop and sells his Rolex Daytona for $500. Woo, buddy, that was a mistake: cheap fake Rolex Daytonas are currently one of the most sought-after models among collectors, often fetching tens of thousands of dollars at auction. And in National Treasure, Cage uses a Rolex Submariner as a deposit in order to borrow a $100 bill from a cashier. “Here. I have this diver’s watch,” he says in the movie. “It’s called a copy Rolex Submariner. I dive with this, it’s actually quite valuable.”
Luckily, there’s at least one Rolex Cage held onto over the years: this awesome 1950s-era best 1:1 fake RolexMoonphase reference 6062. The watch is known as a “Stelline”—or “little star” in Italian—because of the star-shaped hour markers on the watch. The luxury fake Rolex 6062 was only produced for three years, between 1950 and 1953, and rarest of all is the pink-gold version that Cage owns. Only 50 or so were made and of those barely more than a dozen have ever appeared in public, according to Christie’s. Rumor has it that Cage purchased the exact copy watch pictured above at a 2009 Christie’s auction for 597,000 Swiss Francs (roughly $640,000 by today’s conversion rates).
Also this week, Chris Paul’s thumb fracture isn’t preventing him from wearing his own fine Swiss movement replica Rolex, and Samuel L. Jackson continues his commitment to Panerai.
Chris Paul’s Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Chris Paul is wearing what’s known among collectors as the John Mayer Rolex Daytona replica for sale. The watch got its name after its value shot up after Mayer wore the watch on an episode of Hodinkee’s Talking Watches. When this reference first came out in 2016, it didn’t vanish from boutiques like nearly every other Rolex Daytona fake Paypal in existence. But once the Mayer effect took hold, the watch doubled in value—going from $34,650 at retail to more than $70,000 at secondary retailers. Post-Mayer, Jonah Hill bought this watch and it appears Chris Paul did, too. There’s a reason we call Mayer the world’s most influential watch collector.
The white gold Rolex Cellini replica for sale UK we have here is a quintessential example. Many prestigous watchmakers – including Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, Piaget, Vacheron Constantin, and others – were focused on making these precious metal integrated bracelet watches, especially from the late 1960s to the 1980s.
And perfect fake Rolex‘s foray into the dress watch category was largely an effort to compete in a luxury segment that they were clearly lagging behind in. Stylistically, this luxury copy Rolex Cellini is a very late ’60s and ’70s example, with a slightly geometric slim case in white gold and a manual-wind movement inside.
The beauty of this best 1:1 fake Rolex is found in the intricate woven-style integrated bracelet with a bark finish and the Rolex crown on the clasp. It’s amazing how smooth it feels in your hand; they simply don’t make them like this anymore.
If you’re hunting for a Submariner or a GMT, I understand this AAA replica Rolex Cellini UK might not speak to you immediately, but with an open and curious mind, I think you might start to see why a watch like this made sense for top quality copy Rolex in the 1970s and start to appreciate its place in Swiss watchmaking history. It’s just that when you don’t know of their existence, you don’t know to look for them – and here it is in its full glory.
Few watches in the history of Swiss made replica Rolex UK are so distinct as the Datejust Turn-O-Graph, also known as the Thunderbird. At first glance, it looks like a standard Datejust, but a closer inspection reveals the namesake rotating white gold bezel with 60-minute scale, providing a distinctive aesthetic element, as well as additional functionality on the wrist. The origin of the name “Thunderbird” comes from the nickname of the USAF Air Demonstration Squadron, established in 1953, which was the first supersonic aerobatic team. As the story goes, one pilot started wearing a best 1:1 Rolex Turn-O-Graph, and it eventually became the squadron’s go-to super clone wristwatch – the nickname quickly followed.
When it was launched in the early 2000s, the AAA fake Rolex Datejust ref. 116264 represented the last generation of the Thunderbird before it was discontinued in 2012. The reference introduced a fluted bezel to the Turn-O-Graph, in effect further bridging the gap between perfect replica Rolex‘s tool and dress watch styles. It also introduced a number of new dial colors and configurations, including the watch’s now-signature red seconds counter, which helped distinguish the watch not only from previous generations of the Thunderbird but also from its contemporaries in the standard cheap copy Rolex Datejust collection. While the most modern-looking Rolex Thunderbird, the 116264 is nonetheless a quintessential example – versatile in its utility, visually distinctive, and ready for anything. Its 36mm oyster case ensures comfortable wear, while its fluted bezel adds just a touch of elegant contrast, perfectly capturing the “high-low” aesthetic that the series is known for and that has made it a cult classic for over 50 years.
It has now been a decade since the final Swiss movement replica Rolex ref. 116264 was released, and there’s no time like the present to experience the watch in your collection.
