Rolex used different designs in the 1950s and 1960s, making it difficult to easily classify. In its new functional replica watches such as the Explorer and Submariner, replica Rolex has used so-called “working” dials such as the fake Rolex Submariner (Ref. 6536). Literally translated, it means gold or gold, but as always, the process is a little more complicated. The dial is electroplated with a black coating that covers everything except the gold letters. They are made with embossing on the back, which makes them even more visible. A transparent varnish is applied to the black layer. This protects against rust formation and gives the watch a shine.
In the late 1960s, these gold plated dials fell out of fashion and were replaced by matte versions with white lettering. Compare, for example, the previous Submariner with the Submariner Ref. 1680. However, this design change marked the end of the Tropical dials. This subtype was created as a result of a chemical process in the watch that gave it a dark brown tint. This required special combinations of materials, so this effect only occurred for two periods (from 1958 to 1962 and from the late 1960s to the early 1970s).
The Oyster Perpetual, Professional and Cellini are three broad lines of fake watches produced by fake Rolex. Considered the brand's "clothing line", replica Cellini watches Swiss Movement has evolved to include a variety of shapes, sizes and materials in a variety of materials.
Named after Benvenuto Cellini, the renowned Italian jeweler, sculptor and Renaissance painter, the replica Rolex Cellini was launched in the 1960s to take the company in a new direction that goes beyond sports replica watches.
Introduced in 1928, the knock off Rolex Prince with its rectangular case served as the original inspiration for the fake Rolex Cellini line. The Prince, discontinued in the 1940s, still lives on with the Cellini (Rolex Prince Cellini, see image below).
The Cellini family was introduced with new styles that became more coherent and attractive as the market changed. These include the Rolex replica watches, replica Rolex Cellini Quartz and Rolex Cellini Cestello, which are still available in the used car market today.
The first cloned Rolex "Prince" watch was presented in 1928: an oblong rectangular case with a second time display for seconds below is not typical of Rolex. The replica Rolex Prince is also the most famous model in the fake Cellini range. The Prince is powered by an in-house hand-wound movement specially designed and manufactured by Rolex: caliber 7040. Thanks to its rectangular shape, it fits perfectly into the space of the case. The decoration of the bridges is reflected in the sphere. For his "neatness" the prince quickly earned the nickname "watchdog or nurse."
The original model, produced until the late 1940s, was considered the epitome of precision and elegance. It was the first production fake watch to be certified as a chronometer. Thanks to their precision, the imitation Rolex Prince has taken a place in the history of watchmaking. With its avant-garde rectangular shape and extremely precise movement, Prince was and remains an exceptional replica watch.
At Baselworld 2017, super clone Rolex unveiled the replica Cellini Moonphase, the youngest member of the model family, named after the famous Italian Renaissance artist. Especially striking is the complication of the same name, which in some details differs from the usual indicators of the phases of the moon. We will take this innovation as an opportunity to take a look at this very special replica watch from the replica Rolex Cellini family.
