1991 AAA Quality Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 16700 Replica Watches UK
What separates a cheap fake Rolex GMT-Master from a GMT-Master II? I’ve answered that question more than a few times from friends and customers who are newer to their watch enthusiasm. I’m always happy to field questions such as these as it means that folks are really starting to dig in, read, and most importantly to me, think about vintage watches. This particular reference from Swiss made replica Rolex UK is an interesting way to get started being nerdy about the Crown.
I find that this era, and particularly this watch, show us how to start thinking about all the ways perfect Rolex replica watches shift and change. It can also be a good way to learn a lesson, one that sometimes doesn’t make much sense at all. The 16700 is sometimes referred to as a ‘transitional’ reference – I argue it’s not, it’s the end of its line. There are no pure luxury fake Rolex GMT-Masters after it, only GMT-Master IIs; even the movement used in this watch only ever existed in this reference, this watch is the last of its kind.
That’s not to demerit this piece, it’s really the final form of all the high quality replica Rolex GMTs before it, where the second timezone was only to be adjusted by rotating the bezel. Also, for my money, this might be the simpler watch to operate and read. First of all, reading the time in a 24-hour format off of the bezel has always been easier for me than guesstimating the time from the GMT hands position on the dial. Also, a proper quickset date makes setting the Swiss movement copy watch a breeze in comparison to even the modern GMTs, where you have to send the hour hand round n’ round the dial should you not wind the watch for a couple of days.
Lastly, only once in my life have I found myself wanting to track three time zones, and I found doing so on a three-time zone GMT watch unmanageable. That’s all to say, this is my ideal Rolex GMT-Master replica for sale, old enough to show patina on the lume and bezel, but not so old that it can be prohibitive to find movement parts to repair.
