The Cheap Replica Rolex Explorer II and the Patek Philippe Nautilus Lead Declines in Grey Market Watch Sales
The Bloomberg Subdial Watch Index, which monitors the prices of the 50 most-traded replica watches online by value in the secondary market, fell by 1.4 percent over the past month according to data from Subdial, a U.K.-based platform for selling and trading pre-owned watches.
The drop was primarily driven by price declines of the perfect fake Rolex Explorer II (down 3.4 percent in a month to an average price of $9,875) which features a GMT hand and a fixed 24-hour bezel, and several models of the Patek Philippe Nautilus, according to Bloomberg. The Nautilus 5711/1A-010 with a blue dial decreased by 2.9 percent to $102,333 while the Nautilus Travel Time 5990 is down 2.7 percent to $130,882.
According to the index, prices for pre-owned watches have dropped by about 26 percent in a year, while values surged during the pandemic in 2021 and into 2022 for Patek, luxury replica Rolex, and Audemars Piguet timepieces. The month’s best performer? The top quality replica Rolex Datejust 16233, a 36 mm watch in two-tone gold and steel, which climbed 3.3 percent to an average price of $6,396.
Just two months ago, the secondary market for luxury super clone watches was able to outpace the stock market since 2018, as Robb Report covered. At that point, the market grew by a whopping 20 percent over the last four and a half years, according to a report from Boston Consulting Group, driven by the most popular secondhand watches including the Patek Philippe Nautilus, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, and the high quality replica Rolex Daytona.
The report pointed out that there’s an influx of new, younger buyers who are less “personally attached” to their watches. These new collectors treat watch buying more like the stock market, trading in their Swiss movement fake watches when they see a good opportunity.
During the past few years, secondary market retailers have risen to new prominence, while social media communities have formed to showcase watches and tout their value as investments. In addition to young influencers such as Mark Cho and Bryn Wallner, a new cast of TikTok copy watch collectors are helping to reach a whole new generation of potential enthusiasts. Whether these communities can continue push the market upward in absence of a global pandemic is an open question.
A Mint-Condition 1958 AAA Replica Rolex Milgauss Smashed Estimates to Fetch a Record $2.5 Million at Auction
A mint-condition cheap fake Rolex Milgauss was just snapped up for a whopping $2.5 million (2.2 million Swiss francs) at Phillips on Saturday by a bidder representing the Crown itself, according to Bloomberg. The timepiece doubled the pre-auction high estimate of $1.1 million (1 million francs) due to a bidding war between a U.S. collector and Rolex, according to people familiar with the matter. Robb Report reached out to perfect replica Rolex, but the watchmaker did not immediately respond.
Launched in 1956, the luxury fake Rolex Milgauss was originally designed for scientists to withstand the high levels of electromagnetism in laboratories. Swiss copy Rolex was reportedly commissioned by scientists at Geneva’s Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, a.k.a. CERN, to create a wristwatch that could tell the time accurately even in the presence of strong magnetic fields. The final product was equipped with a soft iron cage to protect the movement. The Milgauss can withstand as much as 1,000 gauss or mille gauss in French, hence the moniker.
Produced in 1958, this stainless-steel example is presented in pristine condition. Swiss made replica Rolex features a black honeycomb dial, a rotating bezel, and a seconds hand that is shaped like a lightning bolt. The flashy wrist candy was one of the priciest pieces sold during last weekend’s watch auctions in Geneva.
The high quality fake Rolex, which never achieved the popularity of its Submariner and Daytona siblings, was discontinued in March of this year. Demand has increased accordingly. “That puts a little frenzy in the marketplace because you can’t get them anywhere,” Paul Altieri, founder and CEO of Bob’s Watches, told Robb Report in April. “Secondhand prices typically jump 10 to 20 percent.”
“Exquisite and exceedingly rare, the present watch is not only indisputably a representative of one of the scarcest and finest Rolex super clone watches online made, it is also probably the best preserved and complete example of a reference 6541 to ever grace the auction market,” Phillips said in a statement.
Vintage Swiss movement replica Rolex Milgausses have routinely attracted six figures at auction: A similar design from 1958 sold for $354,000 (317,000 francs) at Christie’s in 2013, while another hammered down for $335,000 (300,000 francs) at Phillips in 2022. The latest sale, however, sets a whole new bar for the model.

Sturdy enough for the gym yet smart enough for black tie: if there’s one watch to travel with, this is it,” AAA super clone Breitling suggests.
The 1:1 fake Breitling Super Chronomat Automatic 38 would have been considered a ladies’ watch until recently, but its size is now very much in the sweet spot for either gender.

There is also a version with an 18ct gold bezel decorated with lab-grown diamonds — a first for Swiss movement replica Breitling — priced at £16,400.
