1.Rolex Phillips Rose Gold Moonphase Replica Watch
Rolex has only ever produced two references with a moon-phase display, one of them is Rolex Phillips Rose Gold Moonphase replica watch. Hardly any were made: fewer than 500 of this reference, and according to Phillips no more than a dozen examples have been offered at auction in the last 35 years. But that’s not all: only one other rose gold example with this dial – Arabic numerals at 3 and 5 and lozenge hour markers – is accounted for. This is truly one of the absolute rarest Rolex replica watches in existence – and it’s in superlative condition. Both the dial and case are sensational.
2.Rolex Milgauss 1958 Phillips Replica Watch
When it was made in 1958, this watch represented the very front-line of modern technology – and boy can you tell from its design. It was the early days of the space race and the heyday of the atomic age, and science and society were moving forward fast. The Milgauss replica watch, launched in 1956, was aimed at scientists and engineers, with a movement protected from magnetic forces prevalent in those fields by a soft iron inner cage. Summing up the spirit of adventure and technology, the seconds hand was shaped like a lighting bolt.
Its honeycomb texture has come up to a gorgeous “tropical” chocolate brown, on which the markings remain as crisp as ever.
3.Rolex Killy Phillips Replica Watch
Our favourite of this particular bunch and a watch that hardcore Rolex collectors tend to go wild over: a magnificent example of the Crown’s only ever combination of chronograph and full calendar, and historically its most complicated model, the Dato-Compax. Otherwise known as the “Killy”, after the glamorous French ski champion who liked to wear one, Jean-Claude Killy, the Rolex Killy Phillips replica watch was produced between 1940-1960 in four references.
The noticeable characteristic of Rolex Killy Phillips replica watch with the 1 at 12 o’clock is the chronograph minutes subdial, on the right, which has three extra markers of its own, and three-minute intervals for the first nine minutes.
4.Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Replica Watch in yellow gold
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona replica watch, one of only three made with the white-on-white dial, formerly owned by Eric Clapton. That’ll likely hit the million-franc mark at a canter. Back down on planet earth, or something like it, though, we think this one’s a peach. Though in production for two decades, the gold editions are still relatively rare. This Rolex Cosmograph Daytona replica watch, in mint condition, is of particular interest because of the back of the watch: the original sticker is still fixed to the caseback, suggesting – along with the lightly oxidized patina and unblemished pushers – that the watch has hardly been worn at all.
5.Rolex Phillips Prince Mood Replica Watch
Finally, we have a pretty much unblemished 1930s Rolex Prince “Brancard” in platinum. The Rolex Phillips Prince Mood replica watch is just such a fascinating watch: introduced in the late 1920s, even then it was said to be similar in price to a car – it was a true slice of Art Deco luxury and exclusivity, and platinum models are exceedingly rare. It was adopted by doctors, since the separate seconds register, made it easy to time a patients’ pulse.
