From 1950-1960 Rolex manufactured what is nowadays one of the most valuable replica watches with its superb watchmaking technique, the item 6062 18K gold automatic triple calendar with star dial and moon phases. An example of the exceedingly rare fake watch in great condition, called Dark Star, will be the noteworthy lot at Christie’s New York’s An Evening of Exceptional Watches sale on December 6 where it’s estimated to sell at $2 million.
Speaking of Paul Newman, Christie is expected to offer two of the typical Daytonas, a stainless steel item 6264 produced in 1971 with box and papers, estimated at 250,000-350,000 USD; and a 14K gold fake watch, item 6241 manufactured in 1968 estimated at 400,000-800,000 USD – one of the most gorgeous Newman Daytonas ever made in our point of view, named after the renown British tobacco label (view our extensive guide to Rolex nicknames). And those are only a small part of the 160 cheap replica watches, some of surfacing to the market for the first time, which are set to cross the auction block, including Patek, Blancpain, Breitling, Cartier, Heuer, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega, and more.
As for the Rolex , there’s an 18K white gold and diamond cheap watch item 116599 Daytona made in 2012 with a rainbow-colored diamond bezel and bracelet, kind of borderline in terms of good taste, estimated at 150,000-250,000 USD; and what we like most, a watch 6234 chronograph with a special tropical dial, made in 1960 and estimated at 100,000-200,000 USD. Even though in terms of money it lags far behind the Rolexes, we’re really interested in the 120-year-old Audemars 18K gold hunter case quarter repeating fake watch which once belonged to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, estimated at 30,000-50,000 USD. Some would call it the great-grandfather of the Royal Oak, manufactured more recently by the company built when Jules Louis Audemars joined forces with Edward Auguste Piguet.
