Vintage Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 1675 Replica Watches For Sale Online

Today we look at my favorite vintage GMT replica watches. Most watch complications are related to our actual whereabouts. Take the chronograph, power reserve, and alarm or minute repeaters as examples. I always found it fascinating that the GMT presented a complication that referred to the events or reality related to you, just happening in any far corner of the world.

I like simple solutions. That’s why I prefer blue and red bezel fake Rolex GMT-Master ref.1675 from 1959 to the ref. 16750 introduced in 1983. Pointing to its primary feature, which was an extra GMT hand, the later GMT Master II ref.16710 allowed it to be set independently. That resulted in the possibility to read not two, but three time zones.
This Rolex replica watch with steel case is as manly as Thomas Magnum. Tom Selleck, the actor who brought everyone’s favorite Hawaii-based PI to life in the ’80s, has kept his GMT Master ever since it found fame on the wrist of his most famous creation. “I’ve had my fair share of sports watches but never one as tough as the Rolex. It’s been underwater, buried in the sand, taken I don’t know how many knocks, and never a problem,“ says Selleck in an interview for FHH Journal.

That’s why I like it so much too. It’s like a steel fortress that protects a very special movement that comes alive with the slightest move of the watch. Sometimes it gives me the feeling that it wouldn’t even let watchmaker in. I already mentioned the charm of the fixed GMT-hand and the same applies to the friction fit bi-directional bezel. If you ever end up with a Rolex ref. 1675 vs 16750 dilemma, I see a really big difference. So think twice! With the Swiss movement copy Rolex GMT Master 1675, there is no quickset date or 120 clicks that help you in aligning the bezel precisely. You have to do it yourself. That’s what a proper vintage GMT feels like to me.

Danny Milton: ‘Live And Let Die,’ Rolex Submariner (Magnet Buzzsaw)

When I was young (and my heart was an open book), James Bond marathons on cable television were an almost weekly occurrence. During those marathons, I found myself always drawn to Live and Let Die – the film that gives new meaning to the moniker “Red Submariner.” Heck, Roger Moore himself is on record saying that of all of Q’s gadgets, the magnetic black dial Rolex Submariner ref. 5513 replica watch was his favorite. The film is, in many ways, anchored to that watch, as in almost every act of the story, Bond utilizes it to his advantage. In the opening scene, when 007 receives the watch from Moneypenny, he showcases its magnetic power on a spoon, and then the zipper of a woman’s dress (a practical effect that purportedly required some 29 takes to achieve).

Later, he uses the watch – albeit to no avail – to escape a swamp of hungry alligators. It isn’t until the final act that we see the watch’s full power: the buzzsaw, which Bond uses to avoid becoming dinner for sharks. The image of the white markers on the matte dial turning red is nothing short of iconic – plus, the watch gets its own closeups in the film, which automatically ratchets it up a few notches for me. This movie redefined the ideal of a “go anywhere, do anything” watch, which was something that the cheap fake Rolex Submariner already represented. Lest we forget, this film also features an early version of a Hamilton Pulsar (referred to in the credits as “Pulsar, The Time Computer”).
Stephen Pulvirent: ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,’ Rolex 6238 Chronograph (Compass)


This might not be Q’s most exhilarating invention – the red chronograph seconds hand is meant to be a compass – but I do think it might be the coolest Bond watch after the famous Big Crown that appears in Dr. No. The sleek pre-Daytona chronograph is one of my all-time favorite Rolex ref.6238 replica watch with red second hand for its understated looks and modest size, and the red seconds hand really pops against the silver dial.

As far as the movie itself is concerned, the replica watch and the stunning Swiss scenery are basically the only reasons to watch. Despite On Her Majesty’s Secret Service being one of the best Bond novels, Fleming’s smart, sharp source text ended up a mess of a film, with hammy acting, a thin plot, and way too many ruffled shirt fronts for my taste.
