New Selling for Two Very Strange (But Very Real) Vintage Rolex Replica Watches

Now comes the October, and you know what that stands for: fall foliage, sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and auction catalogues. We’ve all been warmly taking part in this season’s auctions – partly because the “you-know-what” is coming up for auction, but also because it’s always nice to peruse the crisp pages of a freshly printed catalogue, and see what’s up. Some seasons are more exciting than others, and this fall’s selection has definitely exceeded expectations. Here are two examples of replica Rolex watches that I had literally never heard of before coming across them this week.
To begin with, we have the Phillips Watch Auction, Winning Icons, on Thursday, October 26th. This is the first Phillips watch auction to take place in New York, and the central lot is, you guessed it, Paul Newman’s Paul Newman. But there are 49 other lots left to chase – all special in their own way, but one that really sticks out is a two-tone Rolex
This two-tone 6265/3 was a custom piece made for Bruce J. Leven, a Seattle-based entrepreneur and gentleman racing legend, who became successful with his waste management company, Bayside Disposal. Leven was famous in the racing circles, and more than held his own as driver, competing at the top level. This, combined with his love of Porsches, soon translated into owning the Bayside Disposal Racing Team.
His wish was granted, and here it is: a possibly special two-tone 6265/3 with box, papers, service papers, and service sticker on the caseback. The 6265 was produced from 1971 to 1988, in yellow gold or stainless steel (with a couple of wild cards in between). It’s well-known for its steel or gold bezel, and for having screw-down pushers. The 6265 also has been known to feature the Paul Newman dial, though most of those have been put in 6263 cases at this point.
In Christie’s November sale we have yet another strange affair. OK, this one actually made me question my complete existence in this world of fake rolex watches, because it is something that I have genuinely never seen before. When I first laid eyes on it, I thought, “Wait, is that a Sub? Coming with a day window and on a President’s bracelet?”
This was another cool and totally surprising Rolex replica – a rare white gold Submariner. This crazy replica watch was sold at Christie’s earlier this year and while most of my colleagues recoiled at the sight of it, I fell head over heels for this unique Sub.
