First, because auction hype hasn’t soullessly commercialized this era of vintage Rolex Submariner Series Replica Watches(yet). Second, because these watches tell the story of Rolex that links its tool-watch past to its prestige present. In doing so, watches like this Rolex Submariner 16800 embody the best of both eras.
From the old-school,Replica Rolex Submariner Fake Watches retains the classically cool aged tritium “patina” dial that takes effect when an original survives the ravages of time (and foolhardy factory service replacements). This example features the highly-desirable “matte” dial with printed tritium indexes; most Rolex Submariner 16800 survivors feature the latter applied indexes and gloss dial.
As a bonus, the vintage bezel on this example exhibits outstanding patina that complements the dial to stunning effect. Despite the Stainless Steel Strap Rolex Fake Watches vintage appearance of the luminescent “pearl” at the bezel index, the overall impression of the metal ring is immaculate. Given the propensity of these bezels to degrade like the flanks of New York City subway cars, the combination of a surviving “patina pearl” and complete printed bezel is a minor miracle and collector’s catnip.
