Is there really such a thing as the best Rolex replica? And if one of the many replicas available is indeed above others, what makes it superior? Is it the movement or is better from a pure aesthetic point of view? Let’s try answering these questions, looking at one of the contestants for this title, the Rolex GMT Master II replica.
Saying that the GMT Master II is the best Rolex replica may seem subjective to most, but there are strong argument in favor of this affirmation.
The Rolex GMT Master II replica is, without any doubt, one of the most applauded wristwatches in the world. It was designed in the early 70s, as a professional line of watches, at the request of Pan Am Airways, who were in need of a precise wristwatch that could tell a second time zone. The original GMT Master could do that only by rotating the bezel, whereas the newer GMT Master II accurately keeps track of a second time zone thanks to a fourth hand.
Another reason for being in the race for the title of best Rolex replica is that the GMT Master II is built on a Oyster Case, similar to most popular Rolexes out there, such as the Submariner or Daytona. Of course, the patented Cyclops lens has its rightful place in the whole ensemble, making this one of the best looking and most useful Rolex watches at the same time.
The GMT Master II replica also comes in a wide variety of styles and colors, just like the originals do – from classical and almost understated, to posh, covered in gems versions. That’s why, in the clash of Rolex original vs replica, it’s almost impossible to tell them apart. Of course, one good way to do so is the price.
While the Rolex GMT Master II price starts at about $5.000 for a used one, a brand new Rolex GMT Master II replica sells for a tenth of that here, while offering the same great quality and unmatched reliability.
So, the question remains, if there is such a thing as the best Rolex replica, which one is it? Leave your comment below and let’s see the contestants!
