The Cheap Replica Rolex Perpetual 1908 Might Just Be The Dressy Rolex We’ve Been Waiting For
Here’s something I didn’t expect. In my first meeting at my first Watches & Wonders, it was an entirely new dressy Rolex replica for slae that I couldn’t take off my wrist. Sure, we passed around a bunch of updated sport models – stay tuned for coverage of those too – but the new cheap fake Rolex Perpetual 1908 might be Rolex’s best dressy watch in years.
First, what is the Perpetual 1908? It’s a quartet of new watches in 18-karat yellow or white gold cases, each paired with a black or white dial. But it’s more than four watches: With the Perpetual 1908, Swiss made replica Rolex is actually launching its new Perpetual collection. It’s the dressy answer to Rolex’s professional models, and it replaces the Cellini line, which had felt a bit neglected over the last few years. Now, we know why. And man, if the first Perpetual 1908 is what we can expect for the future of the collection, we might be in for a whole new side of AAA quality fake Rolex.
The Perpetual 1908 immediately grabs your attention with its dial. 1:1 fake Rolex calls the white dial an “intense white.” While no such adjective is given for the black dial, the surprise when seeing it in person is that it’s actually a matte black. It’s similar to what we’ve seen in some other Rolex replica watches online – it looks similar to the dial in this year’s new titanium Yacht-Master, for example – but in a dress watch it’s a subtle little surprise. Really, a dressy watch isn’t supposed to grab too much attention – it’s supposed to be slim and sleek and elegant (and without complication and in precious metal if you’re a purist), and the matte black doesn’t scream at you. In a certain light and at certain angles, it even looks a little grey.
Meanwhile, the white dial has a slight graining effect that seems to give it just a bit of texture. After wearing both for about an equal amount of time – that’s about 30 minutes each, for the entirety of our one-hour meeting with Swiss movement copy Rolex – the black paired with the yellow gold was my favorite of the bunch. This surprised even me, as someone who thinks precious white metals tend to be the most elegant of metals (Rolex, for its part, calls platinum the noblest of metals). Sure, the white gold and black makes me want to go out and spend a stupid amount of money on a Tom Ford tux just to wear something half as dignified as the 1908. But there’s something about a yellow-gold Swiss movement fake Rolex with a black dial that feels like giving order to a chaotic world. It kind of reminds me of those vintage Day-Dates with jet-black Onyx dials that I love. It’s whispering and shouting at the same time, making a statement that only a yellow-gold Rolex can.
Rolex super clone for sale says it based the dial of the 1908 on a vintage model it found from 1931 – something like the model it features here, perhaps? – and it shows, but in a wonderfully updated way. The 12-3-9 is in a sans-serif font that’s as Art Deco as it is modern, perfectly complemented by a more ornate font in the subdial at 6 o’clock. The observatory-style hour hand is another era-appropriate touch. The By the way, 1908 is a reference to the year one Hans Wilsdorf trademarked the term high quality fake Rolex, because what’s a brand, especially a brand like Rolex, without a trademark? (Just ask Jean-Claude Biver.)
It’s time to talk about the case of the 1908, all 39mm of it. It looks kind of like the old Cellini case, but it’s been updated (most notably there’s the sapphire caseback now, more on that in a moment). The bezel is half domed and half fluted. Don’t have the confidence to go full-fluted on the daily like me? You’re in luck. It’s dressed up but not audacious. The case is polished, and while we weren’t able to get any other measurements from high end fake Rolex, the watch is thin (maybe 9mm?) and has a slim profile on wrist. The lug-to-lug is equally manageable: noticeably smaller than the Black Bay 58 I wore into the room (also 39mm, with 47mm lug-to-lug).
I’ll drone on about the need for smaller dress copy watches as much as the next guy, but I’ve gotta admit: I didn’t mind the case size one bit. Would I have liked it even more with 1, 2, or 3mm taken off? Maybe, but I get that there are many reasons, many of them commercial, why best quality fake Rolex won’t do that. And I say this as a guy who’s got a smallish 6.3-inch wrist, maybe 6.5 in the stuffy and sparsely air-conditioned halls of Geneva’s Palexpo. The Perpetual 1908 has 50m of water resistance, more than enough for a watch that comes on an alligator strap, I’d hope.
Even the movement of the 1908 requires a closer look. And now, in a first for Swiss copy Rolex, the new automatic caliber 7140 can be seen through a sapphire caseback. It’s something Rolex is also doing with the new platinum Daytona, making it known it’s happy to show off what it calls Côtes de Genève Rolex finishing on the movement. The Rolex caliber 7140 uses Rolex’s Syloxi silicon hairspring, something that, until now, had been reserved for smaller models like the 31mm Datejust. As Danny explored before, it’s notable to see best quality fake Rolex continue down the path of using two different kinds of hairsprings across its models, and today we’re seeing the Syloxi in a larger watch for the first time. Oh, and it’s the first time Rolex’s pairing a Syloxi hairspring with its Chronergy escapement. Other than that, the caliber 7140 has everything you might expect from Rolex: Superlative chronometer, 66 hours of power reserve, and a gold automatic rotor.
Another detail you pick up on as soon as you try on the Perpetual 1908 that, honestly, you might not even think about otherwise: The alligator strap comes on top super clone Rolex’s “Dualclasp” (like a butterfly clasp) that seems to drape the wrist a little more nicely than a standard single-blade clasp. But by now, I might just be drinking that precision-engineered Rolex Kool-Aid a little too much! On the inside, the strap is green, another simple “Rolex being Rolex” touch. But I’d still throw this thing on a more casual strap and wear the shit out of it, pretty much anywhere and with anything.
The Rolex Perpetual 1908 replica online will cost $22,000 in yellow gold and $23,300 in white gold, with availability beginning in October. At first brush, that feels about right for a dressy Rolex. Much lower than, say Patek’s new Calatrava 6007G ($37,850) or 6119 ($31,940), but more than a comparably fancy watch from a brand like Jaeger-LeCoultre, because, well, Rolex. The price puts the 1908 in the same neighborhood as an A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia – some buyers will prefer hand-engraved balance bridges and others will look first to the name on the dial. Neither is right or wrong.
Rolex copy paypal calls this the Perpetual 1908, but really it takes inspiration from a watch made in 1931. This era of Rolex, from the 1930s through the 1950s, is when Rolex came into its own. First came the Oyster case, then the first automatic movement. Before long, cheap Rolex fake watches were joining climbers on Everest and divers in the ocean. But these best quality replica watches were still subtle and elegant in a way many modern Rolex watches aren’t. With the new 1908, Rolex has captured this heritage in a way I haven’t seen it do in years. And that’s what’s got me so excited about it.
