“The perfect fake Rolex GMT-Master is the first vintage watch I ever collected,” Yu says. “I got it in Switzerland. I’d been looking for one for a while and I got introduced to this watch dealer in Geneva and he showed me some other GMTs. They were okay. He was watching me – I carry a UV light with me, like a mini loupe – and so he was like, ‘okay, you mean serious business? I was gonna keep this one for myself, but let me see how it hits with you.’
And I just fell in love with AAA replica Rolex UK immediately: the condition that it’s in, the fact that the lume still has that radioactive quality to it. It’s definitely the watch I’m most precious with. All original. The thing I look for is quality. I try not to go after franken-watches with replacement parts. It means that I’m going to have to wait, but it’s worth the wait.”
Replica Rolex Day-Date ref. 1803 With Onyx Dial
“This is a different aspect of me,” Yu says. “I’m a little bit of a NorCal hippie. In my house, I have crystals everywhere.” Hence her attraction to the onyx, which looks like a refined version of a stone you’d find at an incense shop in the Haight. This particular example is vintage Rolex Day-Date replica for sale from the late 1980s. “Unpolished. It has this beautiful little bit of patina to the gold. I’m drawn to that kind of care and dedication – not just in the making of it, but in the collecting and keeping of it as well.”
There’s no shortage of great timepieces in film and television, from the perfect replica Rolexes and Omegas of the James Bond films (featuring a slate of deadly accoutrements), to the Speedmaster worn by Tom Hanks in Apollo 13, but what about the wristwear of women on-screen? It’s out there if you’re looking, and there’s a lot to discover, with some real gems amid all the action.
Honor Blackman: Fake Rolex GMT-Master ref. 6542 We can’t start off a list of strong female characters without a mention of British actress Honor Blackman. Rising to television fame as Dr Kathy Gale in the British spy drama The Avengers, Blackman found worldwide fame as henchwoman/pilot/judo expert Pussy Galore in 1964’s Goldfinger opposite Sean Connery. Not the stereotypical “Bond Girl” of those early films, she was easily 007’s equal, and even his ally toward the end of the film. As a pilot, it was wholly appropriate for Galore to wear a luxury replica Rolex GMT-Master, which she does with great style, despite its categorisation as a “men’s super clone watch”.
The Bakelite-bezelled AAA replica Rolex GMT-Master, with its iconic “Pepsi” colourway, was originally designed for Pan Am pilots to keep track of two time zones during transatlantic flights, so it was a perfect choice. In fact, the cheap copy Rolex 6542 reference is so closely associated with the character, it’s since been nicknamed the “Pussy Galore”, and is one of the most sought-after vintage UK high quality fake Rolex GMT-Masters.
