Let’s find some great value vintage replica watches
It’s known to all that the vintage replica watch market is prosperous. Take a look at at recent results from the large fake watch auctions by the likes of Phillips and Christie’s and you’ll see that prices are on the rise. Good news for those who have collections is that there would be more akin to a retirement nest egg. But for us lesser folk who are just looking to find our way into the game, it’s becoming increasingly hard to find good value vintage fake timepieces. However, while the market may be dark and full of terrors, there’s still hope. Take two-tone, for instance. Once trendy steel and yellow watches typically costing less than their all stainless-steel counterparts, their cool factor is finally on the rise again, making it the perfect time for bargain hunting. As always, when buying vintage, it’s wise to tread carefully. And the combination of steel and gold is not without its own pitfalls. We have noticed things like the dangers of gold plating and the obvious Patrick Bateman association. However, there’s still plenty of value to be found if you do your homework and can learn to embrace the two-tone.
A slightly smaller version of the Genta-designed Nautilus, this two-toned beauty watch still measures a very reasonable 37mm. Bi-color combinations of the Royal Oak stretch way back to the original reference 5402. Of course, the case of this ’90s version may be a little on the small side.
Perhaps they are the most well-known among all the two-tone watches. The Rolex Datejust was introduced in 1945, and has graced countless wrists, from American Presidents to American Psychos. Models like this one above can regularly be found at a very cheap price.
Prices of vintage fake Tudor have skyrocketed in recent years. But there’s still much value to be found, with popular replica watches like this Prince Oysterdate. It’s a good example of how a change of strap can dial things down a notch as well.
