Today, I would like to share with you a few stories, some in the cheap replica watches industry in the past to be known things, some of my own things. Through these stories and my limited experience to tell you why the antique Rolex collection is still full of risks. At the same time, modern and should pay attention to what Rolex.
Dial only “ROLEX” line of the word 6240.
Antique Rolex Quotes opaque, mainly by the identity of guess?
The first story is about a Rolex replica 6240.6240 is a Rolex antiques in a model. 6240 is the Rolex Daytona replica Paul Newman 6239 to the “modern” Rolex Daytona transition of a model, 6240 and 6239 difference is that the 6240’s timing button starts with a locking function. This is the main technical difference between the two models of Rolex Daytona. In addition, the two watches there are some details of the different, but the details of the differences have some problems. Standard Rolex 6240 dial will be marked with ROLEX / OYSTER / COSMOGRAPH from top to bottom three lines of words. The Rolex 6239 dial will have several different types, one of which is the dial only ROLEX line of words. Antique collection is rare, the less valuable things, suddenly one day, there was a very unique 6240. This unique 6240 dial only one line of words ROLEX (standard version is three lines), which was originally should not appear in this type of watch. As a result, this is a only line of words, but also with a time button locked Daytona 6240. Collection sector instantly boiling. There is no doubt that this table only momentary value soaring. This may be the only “line-by-line” version 6240.
Standard Edition Rolex 6240, visible dial on ROLEX / OYSTER / COSMOGRAPH three lines of words, and the above “line of words” completely different.
But at this time, there has been questioned the voice. Because the logically speaking, this disk should not exist, a line should only appear in the 6239 on. Even more embarrassing is that the Rolex official will never come to identify the true and false watches. So people began to guess. The view is that this table is likely to be in the production of 6239 disk surface mounted on the case of 6240, because this has occurred. There are also views that this watch is to profit from the auction or privately modified department. This table only true and difficult to distinguish. In fact, when the “line of words” 6239 also do not distinguish between true and false, until people found a Rolex ads appeared on a “line of words” 6239, so that the true identity of the watch proved. The only “line” 6240 is no conclusive proof of identity. Everything is just speculation, everything is guess.
Known as the “black ghost” Rolex 6263, visible on the dial without red DAYTONA words.
The second story is, in 2014, the emergence of a unique Rolex Daytona Paul Newman 6263. This 6263 black face Daytona 6263 disk is very special. Under normal circumstances, 6263 Daytona at 6 o’clock 12-hour timer will have a DAYTONA above the words plate. But this black face 6263 does not have this DAYTONA words, so this watch is called “black ghost”. At that time, only the “Black Ghost” 6263 value reached nearly 50 million. Similarly, the true identity of this watch can not be verified. The view is that this table is the latter part of the disk is artificially modified. But also by those who want to get profits in the auction. But we can not completely negate, this is a true original Rolex 6263. Obviously, we still rely on guess.

The third story is what I saw. Although the domestic secondary market watches and clocks are the major transactions are popular watch models. But occasionally can see some special watches, such as some antique Rolex. Rolex replica watches is one of the largest watch market transactions, so basically all of the modern Rolex watches have a transparent market. It is impossible and there is no question of the sky asking price. But the antique Rolex is not the same. Antique Rolex is nothing to refer to, and the antique table with the product phase as the most important factor, product phase, the original degree determines the value of the watch. The product phase is not a standard thing, the original level of the average person is difficult to judge. I have seen a 1019, which is the previous generation MILGAUSS, asking price is extremely high, more than the major auction house auction records, such a table should not buy, dare not buy? For the general watch lovers, of course, is no.

Antique Rolex is a popular collection, many people know that profitable, false, for parts, assembly, it is difficult to distinguish between ordinary people. Such as Rolex Paul Newman is the most popular antique steel workers, the market in the RMB 500,000 yuan. There are many foreign stocks valjoux72 movement with the assembly of fake Paul Newman, some people fooled. All of the above examples tell us that the collection of antique Rolex is still full of risks.
Modern Rolex Why is not the problem?
Although Rolex is one of the two giants, but compared with Patek Philippe, Rolex production is enormous. So the circulation in the world a large number of Rolex. In some casinos Rolex can convert directly to cash, and is only the Rolex has this privilege, the other watches do not. Why is the collection of antique Rolex is full of risks, but the modern Rolex problem is not too great? Because the modern Rolex great circulation, already have a well-known transparent market and rules. Any one Rolex basic we can easily grasp its market. Of course, there will be a slight price fluctuation, but the market is very stable.
Rolex 16610 and 116610 seemingly very similar, but in fact the watch configuration is different, there are relatively large market differences.
A look at the model, the basic price will be able to know how much money, auction secondary market almost how much money. In turn, one to see the price, you can know which specific model, such as 16610 or 116610, everything is very transparent. Therefore, the sale of Rolex will not be like a small minority table, there is no market reference, pricing, discount, trading prices will be erratic, people are not sure (many high-end niche is a non-market price). Any deal with Rolex who will never put a modern Rolex out of its own range of prices, the market we all understand, no one can not follow the routine “out of the card.” So you will not buy “special expensive” Rolex, of course, will not buy “particularly cheap” Rolex. This is in fact the most powerful place of Rolex.

So what needs attention?
Now we are exploring is the Rolex table, excluding the false category. A large number of worldwide circulation of modern Rolex is actually not much problem. Table is true, because senior watch enthusiasts pick up a rogue about a fake Rolex can know it is false, imitation of imitation and then imitation, but also imitation movement. Rolex 3135 movement and imitation of the ETA movement, Citizen movement has a completely different characteristics, adjust the time, shake can distinguish (watch business people, sell a false form he can not be based in the circle ). I want to share with you below is the Rolex table in the need to pay attention to some of the problems.
Typical rear drilling Rolex 116710, gem quality and mosaic level far and can not be compared to the original.
The first is a modified Rolex, some Rolex will be modified in the private diamond. Rolex replica watches because of the high price of drilling, especially bezel diamond. Some people put the model does not wear a circle, put on a gem ring or set a circle of precious stones. These after-drilling (later diamond-studded) Rolex in the secondary market a lot. The people who buy and sell Rolex will tell the buyer is after drilling, but if you catch a do not understand it? Just looking at the cheap … … because after the drill Rolex one to the mosaic level and a huge gap between the original, and secondly, Rolex is not connected aftermarket. Not only Rolex, all the tables after drilling I think are not worth buying. (A lot of people who buy after drilling is mainly to 70,000 tables to wear the feeling of 700,000).
Rolex bracelet chain links are often one of the key to Rolex transactions.
The second is for the chain. Because some people bought a Rolex cut after the strap, cut off after the cut-off section of the chain chain lost. After the table once again in the market circulation, because the chain before the cut short, many times the seller will go to the collection, with the chain. There have been, after the allocation of links in the fake chain of things. Until the replica watches was sent to labor only to find. Therefore, Rolex watch chain length to ask (cut off the bracelet to stay good).
We can clearly see the Rolex’s mirror is protruding from the bezel.
The third is a very easy to bump the place, need to pay attention to check. Rolex replica mirror is raised to the table than the circle in a circle. Raised the table mirror is very easy to knock, knock on the left a pits, has become a Mishap. Scratches on the case can be polished to throw away, the mirror can only change, change the mirror is not cheap, if you run into the green glass that is not cheap. So take the Rolex first touch the mirror around the table, feel there is no smooth place. Not smooth place under the magnifying glass, is a small pit. Glass is not to buy a Mishap, seems to be cheaper now, in fact this table has not yet put on hand, you have lost thousands of the. Coupled with the subsequent if the hands of the discount again, this a small pit will let you lose a lot.
