This is one of the Swiss made Rolex replica watches that I both love and hate. It has always been the most versatile watch in my book as it looks amazing in all the various configurations. And this is also where the hate for this watch comes from. Through the years, I’ve owned several different versions of this GMT. Every time I bought a new one, it felt like a completely different watch on my wrist. That was okay for a while, but sooner or later, I got bored with it and sold again.
I’d be totally fine without it until I saw one on the wrist of someone again and started looking for a new one again. Through the years I’ve had various 1675 models, including one rare bird with an all-red hand and radial dial. But if I could turn back the clock, I would have kept the last Rolex GMT-Master 16710 fake with steel bracelet I owned. It was the perfect balance for me. I find the more vintage pieces too delicate to wear in on a daily basis, especially when they are in pristine condition. The last 16710 to leave my collection was the Goldilocks GMT for me.
As soon as prices left 10K in the rearview, I realized that it’s not likely that I will ever buy one again. Back in the day, the price for one of these bad boys was around three thousand Euros. I could live with that. Somehow the artificial scarcity doesn’t justify paying North of ten thousand nowadays for the same watch. Even though the price will probably only increase, it still doesn’t make sense to buy the aaa quality Rolex GMT-Master copy watch at a price that the watch is just not worth.
