What a better way to continue my yesterday’s search for Rolex Submariner replica watches than with a fake Rolex Submariner watch review? This photo review will give you some good close-up shots on this fully yellow gold plated replica Rolex Submariner watch and some details on the movement. It’s the first full-on yellow gold plated replica Submariner that I get to review on my blog and I’m always happy when I get to write about firsts.
How do you guys like the first picture? I know that the yellow gold plated requires a bit more care and maintenance overall but I think it’s good competition for the all stainless steel model. I’m finding a lot of times guys preferring one color on their watches rather than two-tones. If you’re one of those guys then this is definitely something you should be looking at.
Seconds hand sweeps good because of the Japanese automatic self-winding movement. Date clicks nice too and time is kept well. It’s a good quality movement and I’ll always recommend Japanese movements because they’re the most accessible and reliable as well so a good value for money.
Never buy a replica watch unless you know everything about the original. Start with gathering pictures and reading the specifications of the authentic model. Once you have done this, you can move on to comparing replicas from different online stores to the real product. Check out the below comparison for understanding better how to do this correctly.
Plating is good quality that’s for sure but keep in mind that any full-on plated piece will tend to scratch faster than a stainless steel one or a two-tone. It’s one of the most expensive looking Submariners that’s for sure and being yellow gold it has that more vintage feel than the other models. Still easy to accessorize and it packs that high-end exquisite punch but it’s such a classic that everyone’s used seeing it all the time.
