Many people enjoy the appearance of rose gold for the warm luster that it brings to their Replica Watches. The Rolex has been manufacturing timepieces with pink gold for decades; however it is only in more recent years that their proprietary rose gold alloy, known as Everose, has made an appearance on their watches.
The warm hue of pink gold comes from its copper content. Copper is the only red metal element, and the amount of copper in a rose gold alloy directly influences the color of the metal. Over time, exposure to saltwater and chlorine can affect the copper on the surface of the metal, causing the rose gold to lose its warm, red-colored tint.
In 2006, Fake Rolex introduced Everose, their proprietary blend of 18-karat pink gold that combines pure gold, copper, and a small amount of platinum to create a unique rose gold alloy that will never lose its warm red color. The platinum locks in the copper’s natural pink tint, which allows the metal to retain its original color. Even after prolonged exposure to environmental factors that would otherwise diminish its warm, rose-colored tint the color holds true.
Rolex’s Everose alloy first made an appearance on their Daytona line of watches. The luxury Rolex Daytona rose gold came as a fresh take on the premium version of Rolex’s sport chronograph. Rolex Replica had been manufacturing chronographs in solid gold for decades. However, yellow gold was used on the vast majority of these knockoff watches. The introduction of Everose offered buyers a contemporary twist on an iconic and classic design.
Classic Yellow Gold
A watch made entirely from yellow gold is a classic and timeless look. However, the red/pink tone of rose gold offers a slightly warmer and more subdued appearance that blends better with a wider range of outfits. Designer Rolex Watches in Everose gold work equally well for both men and women. It can be seen on a wide range of celebrities, ranging from Roger Federer to Victoria Beckham and almost everyone in between. Rolex has been using Everose gold in their watches for over a decade, nonetheless, it is only available as an option for select watch lines like the Day-Date. The Submariner and GMT-Master II are offered in stainless steel, 18-karat yellow gold, and Rolesor (stainless steel and gold). Cheap Rolex even manufactures versions of both watches in solid 18-karat white gold; however, Everose does not exist as an option for the Submariner and GMT-Master II lines of watches, in either the Rolesor or solid gold varieties.
A gold Rolex copy watch has become an internationally recognized symbol of personal success and achievement. No other luxury watch manufacturer has as much widespread recognition as Rolex replica, and gold is the perfect material to encapsulate the feeling of prestige and accomplishment. Gold is one of the oldest materials for use in timepieces. On the other hand, rose gold brings with it a fresh, warm tone to an otherwise very familiar and classic style. Rolex’s proprietary 18-karat Everose alloy has high standards, thus guaranteeing a lifetime of exceptional warmth and beauty.
In this feature courtesy of our friends at WatchTime Middle East, Dubai-based Christie’s watch specialist Remi Guillemin traces the evolution of the Rolex GMT-Master Replica —the iconic Rolex dual-time watch and among the most collectible models to date — through six important references.
Developed during the 1950s, the Rolex GMT-Master exemplifies the extraordinary success achieved by Rolex sport models. Among the most collectible timepieces to date, the GMT-Master was born when the now defunct Pan Am, at the time the world’s largest airline, commissioned Rolex to create a specifically designed watch that allowed its pilots to keep track of time in two locations.
Named after the abbreviation for Greenwich Mean Time, the Rolex GMT-Master was developed with an additional hour hand, revolving once every 24 hours, and a revolving bezel graduated for 24 hours. Throughout the years, reliability and quality of manufacturing led the GMT-Master to international fame, enabling it to become one of the most cherished Swiss Rolex Wristwatches for the novice as well as the experienced collector.
Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 6542
Introduced in 1954, Reference 6542 was the first GMT-Master wristwatch and originated from a regular Rolex Turn-O-Graph Reference 6202, with a modified bezel and movement. The timepiece featured a bright acrylic or bakelite bezel insert with 24 hour markings printed on its underside and divided into red and blue sectors. The wristwatch was also bestowed with a beautiful black gloss dial with gilt printing, as well as a case without crown guards. Today, original models in mint condition are exceedingly rare and are cherished by the most sophisticated collectors.
Offered at auction by Christie’s in Geneva on May 10, 2017, the GMT-Master pictured above featured one of the most desirable and unique dials ever seen on a Reference 6542. Throughout the years, its dial color achieved an extremely charismatic copper/brick tonality resulting from the now well-known reaction of the dial varnishes of the period to time and exposure to external elements.
With a beautifully preserved and original case as well as a highly attractive bakelite bezel with intense colors, the pictured timepiece can be considered as one of the most collectible and appealing example of the first Rolex GMT-Master reference.
Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 1675
Succeeding Reference 6542, the GMT-Master Reference 1675 was produced from 1959 to 1980. Through its long production cycle, the timepiece was astonishingly successful and captured the hearst of many.
Embodying Rolex’s quest to develop the most reliable tool wristwatch possible, this timepiece was created with crown guards as well as an aluminum bezel, enabling its resistance to potential shocks or exposure to external elements arising from active wear. Highly collectible, the GMT-Master 1675 was created in different variations, with cases made of stainless steel, steel and gold, and all gold.
Among the most collectible and rare variations of Reference 1675 are special orders, with many examples of timepieces specifically commissioned for the Middle East, including the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman.
Resurfacing in the market on extremely rare occasions, these examples require some expertise in order to assess their authenticity and condition. At auctions, such timepieces grasp the attention of the world’s most astute collectors in search of the rarest timepieces in order to complement their Replica Watches UK collections.
This exceptional Reference 1675 in stainless steel went on the auction block at Christie’s New York Rare Watches auction in December 2016 and features a dial featuring the “Quraysh Hawk” printed in different padded layers. At its center sits a polychrome enamel Dhow, or Arabian sailboat, replaced today by the UAE federation flag. The dial has Arabic text translated as “Ministry of Defense.” The rarity of the dial is further enhanced by its “radial dial” configuration, in which the markers are placed closer to the center of the dial and the bottom of the crest touching the rectangular 6 o’clock marker.
Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 16758 SARU
With its expanding devotion to experimentation, Cheap Fake Rolex produced some of the most highly coveted GMT-Master timepieces on the market today’ — including precious-stone-set examples of the Reference 16758.
Launched during the 1980s, the model was nicknamed “SARU,” in reference to the alliance of SApphires and RUbies that paid tribute to the original blue-and-red bakelite bezels on timepieces of the 1950s.
Highly unusual for a period where tool watches were initially cased in stainless steel, only a small number of GMT-Master wristwatches were crafted in yellow gold. Timepieces set with gemstones were considered to be some of the Swiss brand’s most exclusive creations and, when offered at auction, they often attract the attention of the most passionate collectors.
Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 16710
Throughout the years, the GMT-Master benefited from further technical enhancements, as with the appearance of the quickset and hack feature, enabling a quicker change of the date and time; and the use of a thicker case and a sapphire crystal.
In 1989, Fake Rolex introduced the GMT-Master II, which featured a new caliber and a slimmer design. The Reference 16710, produced until 2007, enabled the quickset function for the 24-hour hand and encountered various changes to the bezels and bracelets during its production.
Well-received by Rolex Replica collectors, the model could be obtained with an all-black, red-and-black or blue-and-red bezel. Throughout the years this reference was in production, the luminous material present on the dials gradually changed from Luminova to Super-LumiNova.
Some of the most collectible wristwatches part of the reference 16710 include examples with dials bearing the signature of the prestigious retailer, Tiffany & Co. As one of the world’s most renowned jewelry retailers, Tiffany & Co. was also known for selling wristwatches from a few manufacturers.
Scarce in today’s market, as the two companies have now parted ways, Rolex timepieces with Tiffany & Co. printed on their dials testify to the historical relationship between the famous jeweler and Copy Rolex.
Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710 “Batman”
In 2007, the GMT-Master II Reference 116710 was launched. An important evolution for the model, the wristwatch was a hit once again and featured an important number of new characteristics, as well as multiple variations of the case and bezel.
The reference offered an improved movement, Caliber 3186, as well as a larger case, a new bracelet, a ROLEX engraving on the inner bezel ring, and a ceramic bezel. Attracting much success and representing the most technologically advanced GMT-Master to date, one of the most popular examples of the reference include the 116710BLNR, nicknamed “Batman” due to its black and blue accents. I just like Rolex UK Online Store.
Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116758SA
Showcasing the creativity of the Rolex manufacture, one of the most acclaimed GMT-Master timepieces is the Ref. 116758SA with a yellow-gold case and a 24-hour rotating bezel set with precious stones, alluding to the highly successful precious-stone-set sport watches made by the brand during the 1980s.

With an identity and a case and dial design that have remained consistent over time, the GMT-Master attracts a wide array of enthusiasts and has earned its status as one of the most collectible Rolex wristwatches, fueling the desires of seasoned and novice collectors alike.
Just to warn everyone up front, this article concerns my personal opinions on buying and collecting Rolex replica watches. Whether one likes it or not, one cannot deny that Rolex still gets more attention from watch consumers than any other watch brand in UK. I respect Rolex for what it is able to accomplish (producing high-quality watches in large numbers for reasonable prices) and I own and have owned my share of Rolex watches, both vintage and new.
My opinion on this subject changes once in a while, I must admit. Once, I even wrote an article on why I don’t collect vintage Rolex watches, yet now I seem to be “stuck” with only Vintage Rolex Watches in my modest collection. However, I remain strongly opinionated about vintage Rolex. In this article I will tell you exactly why, and why it might be safer (and perhaps just as much fun) to buy a brand-new model.
Let me start by telling you why I love vintage Rolex watches in UK. Like most other vintage watches (from other brands), a Rolex sports watch from the 1960s or ’70s has an aura of adventure; the wear on the case and bracelet show that the Swiss Watches had something of a rough life; the things that the watch witnessed might have been awesome. The fun with vintage Rolex watches is that because there are so many of them around, you can usually find the exact “configuration” that suits your personal taste. For example, I don’t like the ones with the old tritium markers that have turned a mustard yellow color; I prefer them slightly off-white. I also don’t like spider-web dials (cracked paint) and prefer them to be all-matte with big, round hour markers. And I would rather have a watch that had decent servicing throughout the decades than a watch that still has its original crown, seals and crystal. But I know that there are dozens of people who prefer just the opposite.
