In 2021, where most people just use their phone or a smartwatch to tell the time, the idea of spending thousands – if not tens of thousands – of dollars on a high-end mechanical watch seems completely absurd. But AAA luxury replica watches are more than just horological instruments: they’re pieces of art that you can wear on your wrist.
Just like art, you don’t need to spend a lot of money on a watch to get something cool or beautiful. Real watch collectors have just as much love for Casio and Seiko as they do for OMEGA and Rolex, for example. Also like art, many people buy expensive 1:1 UK fake watches just to flaunt their wealth, not because of any sincere appreciation for what they’re buying – which is a shame, but such is life.
But we’re not here to philosophise about the nature of high quality copy watches or art. We’re here to share what are, undeniably, the most expensive and valuable Swiss made replica watches of all time. These are the absolute height of luxury and excess – they make Hublots and Richard Milles look like peasant’s watches in comparison.
Let’s dive a little deeper and explore why these cheap knockoff watches are so desirable and able to command such insane prices at auction.
1953 Patek Philippe Gobbi Milan ‘Heures Universelles’ (ref. 2523) Replica Watches – US$8,967,000
Spoiler alert – 4 of the top 5 on this list are Pateks. That’s perhaps not so surprising: Patek Philippe fake watches online wholesale has long been one of the most desirable and exclusive watchmakers on the planet, and forms one-third of the exalted ‘Holy Trinity’ of watchmaking alongside Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin.
This Patek is a rare ‘double-signed’ world time watch in pink gold. ‘Double-signed’ best replica watches are those that feature not only the brand name or logo of the manufacturer but also of another retailer, typically a boutique or jeweller. For example, Rolexes sold by Tiffany & Co. used to be stamped with Tiffany’s logo.
Double-signed super clone watches for sale are generally highly desirable and rare. As the name implies, this one was sold by Milanese retailer Gobbi. Moreover, it’s thought to be the only double-signed ref. 2523 in existence and one of only two or three ever made.
1968 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Paul Newman’ (ref. 6239) Fake Watches – US$17,753,000
It’s perhaps fitting that the only non-Patek in the top 5 most expensive replica watches with Swiss movements of all time is a Rolex. Rolex is easily the world’s biggest watch brand as well as perhaps the world’s most valuable brand full stop. It’s a byword for luxury, success and exclusivity… And this is the most exclusive (and famous) Rolex fake watches for men of all time.
‘Paul Newman’ Rolex Daytona replica watches shop site, named after the American actor, race car driver and salad dressing mogul who popularised the watch, are unbelievably popular, but this one takes the cake: it’s one of only a few actually owned by Paul Newman, and the only only “exotic”-dialled one (i.e. the only ‘Paul Newman’ Paul Newman Rolex).
It’s even got an engraving on the back that reads “DRIVE SAFELY – ME”. Talk about a Holy Grail…
