The biggest buzzword in the luxury replica watch world these days is “hype” – and nobody does hype better than New York-based streetwear brand Supreme. While their signature colour is red, everything they touch seems to turn to gold. While their own goods are immensely popular around the world, Supreme has engaged in all sorts of collaborations – everything from limited-run branded NYC Metrocards, a digital stopwatch with cheap super clone TAG Heuer, to a collection with Louis Vuitton. But, within the watch community, perhaps the most prized Supreme item would be their rare customised run of perfect replica Rolex Submariner watches in 2013 that had engraved casebacks and dial text in Supreme red that said “Fuck Em”. These friends and family Supreme Submariners pop up every now and again, commanding asking prices far above a Submariner’s at anywhere between $50K-$100K. Now, nine years later, rumours are swirling that another Swiss made fake Rolex Supreme watch will arrive Fall/Winter 2022 – and that it may even be an official factory customisation this time around.
To be clear, the two circulating images are artist renders. They are not official images of any kind. The first render mockup imagines a 1:1 replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date with a red Supreme dial, the Supreme text cut off rather than scaled to fit the dial. Were something like this to happen, it would mean, like the 2013 Submariner, these watches would be aftermarket customised.
The second, and far more intriguing claim, is that an official collaboration is incoming. In this artist’s rendering, a presumably white-gold AAA fake Rolex Day-Date is outfitted with a silver sunray dial that places a small Supreme logo at 6′ and the day-disc at 12′ conveying the familiar “Fuck Em” text rather than the calendar day.
To ensure everyone is up to speed, there is a huge difference between aftermarket customisation and factory customisation – especially in regard to cheap replica Rolex UK. For example, a watch, such as a Patek Philippe Nautilus completely covered in diamonds, is far more valuable if the diamonds are a factory configuration set at the manufacture, than if they are set by a jeweller at the request of a client. The Swiss movement fake Rolex Supreme Submariner of 2013 falls into the latter camp, the dial text and caseback engraving not added by super clone Rolex at the factory – rather by a jeweller or watchmaker enlisted by Supreme.
