1972 UK Perfect Fake Rolex ‘Red’ Submariner Ref. 1680 With Full Set

The Swiss made copy Rolex Red Submariner is my favorite watch of all time, the one I would pick to wear for the rest of my days. To me, it checks all the boxes, and it’s just easy. The style is classic enough to really work with everything, it has a date function that’s pretty useful, and to spice it up, there’s that little line of red text. Rolex used red text in some of the earlier Submariners but stopped after the 1680.

In recent years, the brand brought back some red text in the 43mm Sea-Dweller, paying homage to the OG Sea-Dwellers, but it’s really not the same thing. It’s funny, when I was first introduced to the Rolex Red Sub 1680 fake with steel case, I wasn’t a fan of the top-hat style crystal. Now it’s one of my favorite details. From the different mark dials to the band-aid textured lume to the folded-link bracelet, these have so many little details to obsesses over. The bracelet on this watch has an error divers extension where Rolex misspelled “patented,” instead spelling it “pateted.” It’s uncommon for Rolex to make a mistake like this, so many collectors find this desirable because it differentiates the watch from others.

The example we’re offering today is circa 1972 and comes complete with its original box, papers, and a whole lot of accessories. Box and papers aren’t crucial for me when it comes to vintage, but when the watch is great and it has the original accouterments – it’s a home run. When we first got this Swiss movement replica watch in, it was so nice to open up everything and just lay it out. It’s so satisfying matching up the case number to the punched papers to the hang-tag, and even to the second punched papers in the “Your Rolex Oyster” booklet.

I love how the original caseback sticker was stuck to the green plastic Rolex wallet, most likely at the time of purchase. The luxury Rolex Submariner super clone watch has aged beautifully with a creamy colored lume, nicely preserved bezel, and folded bracelet still in great shape. Finding a full-set Red Sub like this is getting more difficult by the day, and this is a great opportunity to give this one a new home, dive in here.

Did You Spot It? UK Luxury Rolex Silently Brings Back The Batman, And The Pepsi Gets The Oyster Bracelet Treatment

The copy Rolex Explorer I and Explorer II updates received much of the attention, along with new unique dials for the Daytona and Datejust. Look at the “love-it-or-hate-it” leafy green Datejust dial! Opinion has been somewhat divided among the team, but I think it’s a pretty cool summer watch. However, we noticed a few additions to the configurator that went slightly under the radar.
Rob noted the blue fluted dial in his article for the new unique dials for the Datejust. That tasty new addition wasn’t shown on the keynote presentation, despite possibly being one of the best unique dials ( jazzy palm dial aside!). There were also new jubilee bracelets for the SkyDweller, which are arguably the more logical choice for the clone Rolex’s dressier sports watch.

Batman Returns
Of all the minor updates that Rolex chose not to sing about in its keynote presentation, I found the updates to the GMT Master II the most interesting. The Batman is officially back. The configurator now offers the black and blue bezel fake Rolex GMT-Master II with an option of the Oyster bracelet. Additionally, the Cerachrom bezel Pepsi is also available on an Oyster bracelet for the first time.

It was only 2 years ago, in 2019, that the 126710BLNR “Batgirl” ​made its debut to replace the outgoing 116710BLNR “Batman”. While most of the specs remained the same, the new 126710BLNR was fitted with the five-link Jubilee bracelet instead of the three-link Oyster bracelet. That marked the end of the Rolex’s stainless-steel GMT Master IIs on Oyster bracelets. The Pepsi bezel 126710BLRO from 2018 was also only available on a Jubilee. Half-hearted outrage ensued at the type 69200 bracelet. That was basically the only option for those watches, as the old Oyster bracelets did not fit the new cases.

The Rolex Oyster bracelet lives!
Two years on from this Oyster extinction, The high quality copy Rolex has backpedaled and made both the Cerachrom-bezel Batman and Pepsi available on Oyster bracelets. Rejoice! I always felt that the rugged looks of the GMT-Master II were better complemented by the Oyster bracelet. The Jubilee was always best suited to the dressier pieces in Rolex’s catalog, in my opinion. Can you imagine if the venerable Submariner was suddenly only available on a Jubilee? There would be scenes!
A quiet release from Rolex
Either way, this is an intelligent move from Rolex. I’m just a little surprised the brand didn’t make more of a song and dance about it. The Swiss movement fake Rolex GMT-Master II costs €8,800 on the Oyster bracelet or €9,000 on Jubilee…if you can get hold of one!

What do you think of the update? Do you prefer the GMT-Master II on the Oyster, or were you a fan of the Jubilee? Let me know in the comments!
