Surprisingly, none of the leading watch magazines noticed this luxury replica watch. I say “surprisingly” since we’re talking about a watch that was created in late 2020 and appeared in the wild repeatedly. It was even mentioned by its wearer, Sir Ben Ainslie, in an interview on October 2020 in The Week. It has also been mentioned in the official Swiss made replica Rolex print magazine, and there have been a couple of mentions on specialised forums, and that’s it. Weird, since a titanium Rolex is something that should have generated a lot of buzz. Well, thanks to the sharp eye of Jake at Rolex Magazine, more details regarding the cheap fake Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Titanium have surfaced.
Even though it is regarded as a luxury powerhouse these days, AAA replica Rolex has a long tradition in research and development. It has created countless experimental watches in the past, or watches that were conceived together with specialised teams for a very specific purpose. Think about the Rolex Deep Sea Special fake watches online created for the exploration of the greatest depths attached to the Bathyscaphe when exploring the Mariana Trench – we recently covered two models coming up for auction: one by Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo, and an even more important one (because we’re talking about Number 1) to be sold by Christie’s. The same can be said about the watches made for Comex, or the best copy Rolex Deepsea Challenger created for James Cameron when breaking the record for the deepest dive, which gave birth to the D-Blue Deepsea.
With this watch, it seems that perfect replica Rolex is back on track, testing purpose-built models in real-life conditions. And for that, The Crown asked Sir Ben Ainslie, the most successful sailor in Olympic history (gold medal in four consecutive Games – Sydney, Athens, Beijing & London) to field-test a watch that is unlike anything in existing collections. The best 1:1 fake Rolex in question has been spotted on multiple occasions, including at the 2021 Prada Cup – a sailing competition held in January 2021 to determine the challenger in the 2021 America’s Cup to challenge Emirates Team New Zealand – or on April 2021 at SailGP. The watch is also clearly visible on Ben Ainslie’s website here.
According to Sir Ben Ainslie in an interview given to The Week in October 2020: “The team at Rolex has been incredibly thoughtful by giving me a titanium Rolex Yacht-Master 42 replica for men. I’m extremely honoured to have it, plus, from a performance perspective, every little bit of weight that we can save helps us to go faster with the boat.”
What are we looking at precisely? In short, it is a “de-luxurized” and far sportier Rolex Yacht-Master fake for sale made of titanium (no mention whether grade 2 or grade 5), with a “dark anthracite” colour and a matte (probably blasted) finish. Also, the watch is a no-date version of the white gold watch with a 3D-textured black ceramic bezel luxury super clone Rolex launched in 2019. Finally, the watch is worn on a NATO Strap (also something never seen before for the brand), which according to the brand, combines Cordura with high-performance elastomer and is closed by a Velcro for easy adjustments.
The very existence of this wholesale replica Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Titanium might be pointing to the fact that the brand hasn’t lost its original vocation for sports and tool watches, for timepieces made with a specific purpose in mind. Titanium is the material of choice for a regatta watch that needs to endure salty waters and harsh conditions. Creating a tool-like version of the Swiss movement fake Rolex Yacht-Master could bring it back to its original vocation as a watch made for sports sailors, and not a watch made for the yacht club – because the classic Everose Gold 40mm or White Gold 42mm versions, as handsome as they are, are clearly luxury copy watches and not sports instruments.
Of course, it raises some questions about the future of this high quality fake Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Titanium. Is it just a one-off test, or was it created with future commercialisation in mind? Is Rolex working on something new for its future collection? As always, the brand remains silent on this question. But the very idea of a exact copy Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Titanium in the permanent collection is quite exciting and could mark a return of Rolex to its roots when sports/professional watches were made for real-life activities.
One thing is certain; this titanium model will form part of our predictions for the new Rolex replica watches Paypal… Just like we did this year when we predicted an updated Explorer collection.
