Weekly 1961 Breitling Navitimer and 1985 Rolex GMT-Master

To me, the Navitimer is a quintessential Breitling – it’s the watch I envision when I close my eyes and think of the brand. If someone wanted to amass a collection of classic models from all different brands, the Navitimer would check the Breitling box, no question. However, when you handle the original vintage one, you can understand why the brand did a re-edition in the first place. Breitling Navitimer
This early all-black dialed Navitimers with the beaded bezels are some of the most sought-after variants in the Navitimer repertoire. The all-black dial is striking on the wrist, especially with the luminous Arabic numerals. The way the sub-dials shimmer ever so slightly against the black dial has me staring at this thing all day. The Navitimer dial is busy by design, and all the different design elements just work so well together. These white-painted syringe hands help with legibility against the black dial and also give it a nice vintage aesthetic.
Besides just being a damn good-looking fake watch, the size of the Navitimer is a real crowd-pleaser. When it came out, this was quite a large watch at 40mm, but now it’s pretty standard. This is ideal for those out there who are hesitant to go for a vintage watch because many tend to be on the smaller side of the spectrum. Essentially, vintage Navitimers are perfect if you want a vintage watch with a more contemporary size. The watch we have here today has aged beautifully and is one of the nicest all-black dialed examples to hit the Shop; it’s ready for a new wrist!
Two-tone is all the rage for Rolex all of the sudden. No one saw the two-tone Explorer coming, and yet, here we are. Recently, Danny Milton made the case for the stainless steel and yellow gold combo by claiming, “two-tone is the physical embodiment of work-hard, play-hard – which was basically the decade’s whole mantra.”
Danny did a great job articulating why two-tone “isn’t ugly,” but to me, it’s a bit harder to put so eloquently. In the metal, two-tone 1:1 replica watches just hit me as either way too much or perfectly executed. There really isn’t any in-between. The 1985 GMT-Master ref. 16753 on Jubilee we have in this week’s drop just works. This is the perfect watch for all seasons but, with the weather starting to turn to spring, my mind immediately goes to leaving the bracelet a bit loose and wearing this GMT all summer.

A Must-have Rolex Datejust in Wavy New Dials

Rolex has just unveiled a new range of Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36s at the 2021 Watch Fair. Long a canvas for interesting dials, the Datejust is now available with two new dials to choose from: a festive palm motif and a deluxe fluted version paying homage to replica Rolex’s famous fluted bezel.
The tropical palm motif can be found in three new models. There is an Oyster steel version with an Oyster bracelet featuring an olive green palm motif; a Rolesor (two-tone) version with an Oyster bracelet featuring a golden palm motif dial; and a third version with a silver dial and an Everose Rolesor model with a Jubilee bracelet. In terms of fluted dials, there is a yellow gold and steel version with a gold fluted dial and white gold and steel and white gold version with a blue fluted dial.
The Datejust 36 is what many people who are not necessarily enthusiasts or interested in sports watches tend to think of when they mention Rolex. It has also been a traditional canvas for new dial designs and colorful dial treatments, so it is not surprising to see several new dial treatments in the DJ 36.
With the new tropical palm motif, fake Rolex offers another interesting design that shows quite a bit of range in the three variations introduced. I really like the olive dial paired with the Oyster steel DJ. Its plain domed bezel and white metal configuration are the mildest of the new versions, while the olive palm dial offers a very interesting pop of color.
For the fluted dial, you get a two-tone gold fluted dial, a two-tone steel and ever-rose domed bezel, and an all-white metal version paired with a blue dial. This last one brings a very cool look to the Datejust 36, which is my favorite of all the new Datejusts. But if the Datejust 36 is what many people think of when they think of Rolex, then I think the two-tone yellow gold and Oyster steel version of this model is the specific replica watches that many people have in mind. With this new dial, it feels classic, like something you’ve probably seen before. Just look at the one above.

The ultimate 126300 buying guide where we break down all the details and review this Rolex reference to help you make the right decision.

Its 41mm size is ideal for those who appreciate the iconic Datejust design, but want something a little larger than the traditional 36mm version, yet more refined than the bulky Datejust II is ideal.
Getting the best version of the Datejust 126300 for you will require finding the dial and strap combination that impresses you the most, but all of the options look great. Whether it comes with an Oyster strap or a gold jubilee strap, a dark or light dial, Roman numerals, or baton indexes, buying a fake Rolex Datejust 41 ref. 126300 is always a solid choice and could easily be the watch you wear every day for the rest of your life.
The discontinued stainless steel Datejust II ref. 116300 did offer a few different dial options, but the current Datejust 41 ref. 126300. Some examples include a black dial with painted Roman numerals and a silver dial with blue Arabic numerals. In addition, the Datejust 41 version with the white gold fluted bezel offers the option of diamond hour markers, while the other two all stainless steel versions of the watch do not.
The Datejust 41 ref. 126300 does, however, offer the option of the popular Wimbledon dial with its face painted with green Roman numerals against a background of rising sun rock. This was only available on the Rolesor version of the former Datejust II series, and not on the fully stainless steel version.
However, like all of Rolex’s stainless steel models today, the all stainless steel Datejust 41 watch is worth more than its suggested retail price on the secondary market. This is simply because the steel Datejust 41 watches are so popular that they are usually sold out at authorized retailers. Naturally, demand drives up the price on the open market.
