It really doesn’t matter which generation of Swiss fake Rolex Datejust one looks for, the variants are simply mind-boggling. This initially scared the living daylights out of me because I literally had no clue if what I was looking at was real or even correct for the model year. Seriously, go look at any model and the dial choices are astounding. Plus, that’s before one even decides on bezel type (fluted, engine-turned, or polished), bracelet, or metal. Ultimately, I chose the best 1:1 replica Rolex Datejust 16030 out of a huge bag of treats, but it wasn’t obvious.
Figuring out the right Datejust
Prior to picking up the luxury copy Rolex Datejust 16030, I actually already owned a couple other examples from the line. Firstly, I purchased a 1625 Turn-O-Graph in 18K yellow gold with a matching rotating bezel. That’s a stupendous watch, but it’s not for everyday use. Second, I own my grandfather’s Rolex 16220 replica watches online UK with a blue dial and engine-turned bezel. I love that piece and it’s a sentimental part of my collection. So, why add something new? Honestly, I wanted something vintage with an acrylic crystal, in steel, and with a black dial. Perhaps I wanted something that provides a bit of the same magic as, say, an Explorer.
With vintage perfect fake Rolex Datejust watches, there are a number of models one can consider. The ’50s gave us the 5030 and 5031 models and while these are nice, they’re almost too antiquated for me. With their dauphine hands and high propensity of textured dials, they didn’t strike me as practical. The next model series to come along was the 160x references and for most, these are the key replica watches for sale UK.
There are seemingly infinite numbers of dial, bezel, and bracelet combos. Plus, they’re stupidly robust with their 1560 caliber movements. I really like these and enjoy their “pie pan” dials. I could’ve gone for one of these had I found the right one, but I’m glad I didn’t (I guess it will happen one day). The only detractor, and it is something consider when one is wearing their cheap fake watches every couple of weeks or so, is that this series lacks a quick set date adjustment.
The Fake Rolex Datejust 16030 ticked all the boxes
With the other vintage options falling by the wayside, the remaining option came from the 160xx. In the late ’70s, Swiss movement fake Rolex began introducing quick set models along with the legendary 3035 caliber automatic. The nice thing is that these models brought this modern characteristic, but left such vintage touches like drilled lugs and acrylic crystals. For the record, the 16750 GMT-Master is a good example of one of these “upgraded” models and I’ve enjoyed owning one. So, when a nice black-dialed high quality replica Rolex Datejust 16030 came up for sale, I decided that it would probably end up being a good fit.
The AAA fake Rolex Datejust 16030 that I found was sitting with the Davidoff Brothers (they’re now guilty of supplying several watches to me) and it had a lot of things that I like. Firstly, while I like an Oyster bracelet with a smooth bezel Rolex Datejust fake online, I just think that a Jubilee works better with either the fluted or engine-turned versions. Also, like I’ve mentioned in other articles, they’re just so darn comfortable! Next, this watch had an engine-turned bezel and I really like these. They’re not as fancy as a white gold fluted variant, but I enjoy the details of a well-kept steel bezel.
