It happens every year. At the onset of spring, as if roused by the aroma of blooming cherry blossoms, watch collectors and industry bloviators emerge from winter hibernation and begin preparing for trade-show season by ritualistically asking one another the same question. WWRD: What Will cheap Rolex replica watches Do?
The question is often answered dryly, with some version of “the same thing they always do lol,” a trite commentary on the iterative nature of the Crown’s design process – and one that conveniently ignores a litany of radical recent releases, such as the palm-frond Datejust from 2021. Or the Rainbow Daytona from 2018. Or how about the green-crystal Milgauss from 2007? Or the Stella Day-Dates from the 1970s? Or the dive Rolex fake watches for sale that can go 11,000 meters deep? Or the GMTs with dials made from freaking meteorites?
Yes, Rolex does have a conservative streak – which is to be expected from an $8 billion company with a lot to lose from a tactical blunder. But that prevailing conservatism runs on a parallel path with relentless innovation. Best UK replica Rolex watches are not infrequently characterized by either stupendous technical achievements or wild aesthetics. To insist that the brand is only one thing or another is to deliberately ignore half the story.
The truth is that how you feel about Rolex says more about you than it does about 1:1 Rolex copy watches, a company that remains stubbornly impervious to consumer feedback – a rarity in our post-Yelp era, where just about everyone feels empowered to issue an opinion that they then expect will effectuate meaningful change in corporate behavior. Collectors have so many feelings about Rolex’s product design, allocation strategy, and pricing. And yet, as John Updike once wrote about Ted Williams, “Gods do not answer letters.”
Into this milieu we welcome the new time-only Swiss movements replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches, which comes in three sizes – 31mm, 36mm, and 41mm – with a case and bracelet made from gleaming stainless steel. It’s a continuation of the design theme that Rolex unveiled in 2020 when it dropped a collection of candy-colored OPs in pastel pink, hunter green, coral red, marigold yellow, and turquoise blue. This set proved phenomenally popular and so influential that competitors like Omega and TAG Heuer hurriedly brought their own iterations to market. Or perhaps that was just a coincidence. But when no less than Patek Philippe gets in on the game with colored Calatravas, one does start to wonder.
So what does perfect fake Rolex watches do now that everyone has followed its lead? It jumbles those colors together in one “Celebration Dial,” with all five original hues atomized into 51 circular cells. The effect resembles a psychedelic bubble bath. Or a glass jar of tiny jawbreakers. I’ve even heard the look compared to a McDonald’s ball pit. The common thread among these analogies is that all of these things are fun. And fun – giddy, childlike fun – is what you will have if you are lucky enough to snap this $6,000 toy onto your wrist, which I did a few hours after it was released, grinning like a lunatic until a nice lady from Rolex basically had to pry it off me.
In photos, the luxury super clone Rolex Celebration watches seems like it might be hard to wear with any type of clothing, given the color and pattern splashed all over it. In practice, I happened to be wearing it with a navy pinstriped suit and a burnt orange turtleneck and everyone told me that it looked smashing, though they may have been saying that just to placate a man who was clearly not taking no for an answer. In any case, it’s probably a safe bet with jeans, or all black, or all white. Or whatever. Don’t overthink it.
The Celebration is pretty clearly not meant for daily use. It is flagrantly impractical. But I would argue that practicality is hardly a prerequisite for a purchase as utterly discretionary as a mechanical luxury wristwatch. You buy something like this just because you want it. It’s the same reason I recently brought home a wooden box full of rainbow-handled Laguiole knives, even though the boring black ones I already owned were working just fine. Beauty makes us act irrationally.
A few words now about the size of this timepiece. Collectors, in the basest of terms, love to debate whether 36mm cases are the platonic ideal size or are, instead, simply the size preferred by the effete scribes who write about Rolex replica watches wholesale for a living, while real men are locked in the gym doing forearm curls and wearing 40+mm. I can’t think of anything dumber to argue about, but suffice it to say that I prefer the 36 and would at least consider wearing the 31 before I wore the 41.
While we’re talking specs, I guess I should also mention that the movement inside is the calibre 3230 for the two larger models, and the 2232 for the baby, but as you can undoubtedly tell by this point, the movement is the absolute last thing I care about on Rolex fake watches online like this. If I owned the Celebration Dial, I’m sure I would appreciate the 70 hours of power reserve and the fact that it has high-performance shock absorbers, which means I could wear it to a weekend-long rave and not worry about either winding the crown or jostling the gears while I’m getting my groove on. But mostly I like the look of it.
I like the look of it, and I like what it represents. I like that it’s a pie in the face to everyone (supporters and detractors alike) who thinks they know what replica Rolex watches shop could, should, or will do. This thing is a genuine surprise. The watch world needs more of those – and for that matter so does the rest of the world. Because isn’t it invigorating to be thrown off balance? Doesn’t it remind you you’re alive? Isn’t part of the reason we get out of bed in the morning because we don’t know what will happen? Just when life seems utterly predictable, Florida Atlantic makes the Final Four and Rolex makes a watch that looks like it should be sold at Party City, right next to the helium balloons.
