There’s no denying the power of an heirloom. In this case, one family fake watch served as the starting point for Quesada’s future collecting journey.
“I think what really sent me down the rabbit hole was this watch that my dad gave me,” Quesada says of his luxury replica Rolex Datejust. “I always remember my dad telling me how my mom’s father gave him a Rolex off his wrist at a party. He would always show me that AAA fake Rolex.”
Quesada remembers looking at it fondly as a child and has vivid memories of his father wearing it. “Years ago, he gave it to me and said ‘I want you to have it,'” he says. “And now I just think, I have a 1:1 replica Rolex UK – that’s crazy.”
It took time for him to come to grips with the fact though, that he owned a high quality fake Rolex. “I wore this watch for a long time,” he says. “It meant so much to me that I didn’t want to wear it daily so I’d go back to my little Timex Weekender and only wear this for special occasions, but now it’s just classic. The older I got I appreciated that this could be a daily copy watch.”
Of course, everything is circumstantial. And as much as he’d love to wear this Swiss movement replica Rolex daily, his life doesn’t allow for it. “I travel so much on tour that it feels a bit precarious to bring it with me,” he says somberly. “I’ve definitely forgotten things in a hotel and I wouldn’t know what to do if I lost this. It’s one thing to lose something expensive and another to lose something that was passed down two generations. For that reason, this isn’t my touring super clone watch.”
