This possibly unique UK perfect replica Rolex Big Crown Ref. 6200 will be one of many exhibits in my (hypothetical) watch collecting thesis that the 1950s was the golden decade for Rolex fake for sale. After all, in addition to this 6200, my two favorite references of all time, the 6542 and the 6062, were also introduced then.
First introduced at the Basel Fair in 1954, this was the first dive copy watch with a water resistance up to 200m. Very rare, the 6200 earned the name “Explorer Submariner” because the dial features the 3-6-9 numeral configuration seen on cheap fake Rolex Explorers.
However, that’s not the most covetable element of this piece. Typically, one sees “AAA replica Rolex Submariner” printed on the collection’s dials. But on this lot, one can see the words “Officially Certified Chronometer,” making the lower half of the dial’s text come to three lines.
Other than the previous life of the watch, my favorite thing about vintage is the “if you know, you know” little details demonstrated in this Swiss made fake Rolex Ref. 6200.
A 1950s 1:1 replica Rolex Submariner Big Crown is significant enough, but it’s unforeseen attributes like the ones seen here that bring a secret smile and a strong kinship between collectors and enthusiasts alike.
