Indeed, there’s a third model celebrating an important anniversary this year, and it’s the classic US cheap fake Rolex Explorer, a watch also born in 1953 and turning 70 this year. The watch was revamped in 2021 when perfect replica Rolex introduced the new Oystersteel 124270 and Rolesor 124273. And importantly, the Explorer 1 returned to its original size of 36mm – quite a bold move from luxury super clone Rolex to downsize a watch from 39 to 36mm.
This update was also the occasion to bring modernity to the mechanics with the calibre 3230. And yes, apart from the classic steel version, Swiss made fake Rolex made a questionable move when it introduced a two-tone Rolesor (steel and 18k yellow gold) edition, knowing that precious metals have never been used on the Explorer in its entire history.
Now, the model is celebrating its 70th anniversary, and as part of our 1:1 replica Rolex Predictions 2023, we decided to go full gold… And why not? Now that there is a bi-metal version, everything goes, even a solid 18k yellow gold Rolex Explorer 36mm. Knowing that AAA quality fake Rolex is very keen on pushing precious metals these days, it would even make sense commercially. The update here would only concern the materials used for the case, bezel and bracelet, which would all be made entirely of yellow gold. The dial, still glossy black and featuring applied markers and numerals in gold, would remain identical to the one found on the cheap super clone Rolex Rolesor reference 124273.
This Swiss movement fake Rolex Explorer 70th Anniversary would carry the reference 124278 (the 8 being the number associated with yellow gold in the Rolex collection) and would be part of the permanent collection – there are no limited-edition models at high quality replica Rolex unless, of course, there is a complete change of strategy. Surprisingly, the combination of this luxurious, warm and bold metal with a compact case and a black, sleek, sporty dial is rather appealing. There’s something cool to this copy watch, more than we would like to admit…
