Let’s kick things off with an exceedingly rare pre-owned pick. A perfect replica Rolex Submariner ref. 5513 with a gilt dial is honestly one of my grail watches. But here is an example that will make those look pedestrian by comparison. This example comes with an Explorer dial, characterized by baton indices and that iconic 3-6-9 layout.
There are actually several 1:1 fake Rolex Submariner references that were available with Explorer dials. The 5513 is the last of them. The one thing they all share is an extremely short production period. Swiss made replica Rolex UK finally settled on the dive watch’s archetypal combination of circles, batons, and triangles.
This aaa quality replica Rolex is in fair condition and on offer for an eye-watering €182,799. That is a premium of about €160,000 over a good “regular” gilt 5513. But hey, if you want something this rare, you are paying through the nose. Luckily, Xupes offers spread payments. I found the “As low as £30,466.50/month” proposition rather funny. In short, no, this is certainly not a pre-owned bargain. But I thought I’d kick things off with a bit of a banger.
