This year, there have been some pretty wild things go down at the auction block. Despite the more unusual and shocking turn of events under the hammer, this year has also been filled with some pretty impressive sales of some pretty incredible timepieces. These are the most expensive Swiss made Rolex replica watches sold at auction in 2023.
Replica Rolex Paul Newman John Player Special Ref. 6241 Watches, $2.5 million
Several big moments of this year’s auctions went down back in May. In a single weekend, the big three auction houses sold more than $100 million in luxury watches. At Sotheby’s Important Watches Sale, there was one particular standout: best UK fake Rolex Paul Newman John Player Special Ref. 6241 watches. This unique variation of the coveted Paul Newman Daytona is named after the British tobacco-sponsored Team Lotus Formula One car of the 1970s and notable for its 18-karat yellow gold build. Only 300 examples were produced in yellow gold and an even smaller number were fitted with the desirable John Player Special dial. This one went for nearly $2.5 million, making it the top lot in the Important Watches sale and setting a new world record for cheap 1:1 copy Rolex Paul Newman John Player Special watches.
1958 Rolex Milgauss Fake Watches, $2.5 million
May also saw Phillips Geneva Watch Auction XVII, which notched not one, not two but four of the most expensive watches sold at auction this year. The first was a bit of a dark horse: mint condition 1958 Rolex Milgauss replica watches for men. This modest stainless steel tool watch with a honeycomb dial and “lightning” hand more than doubled its high estimate and went on to sell for just shy of $2.5 million. Until this sale, vintage Milgausses had routinely attracted only six-figures at auction, making this a record price for any luxury Rolex Milgauss super clone watches ever sold.
Rolex Daytona Replica Watches, Ref. 6270 “The End Game,” $4.1 million
Still, the most impressive lot from Phillips Geneva Watch Auction XVII is arguably the perfect replica Rolex Daytona watches, Ref. 6270 “The End Game.” This is not your typical watch from The Crown. It’s a fully blinged out model featuring a yellow gold build with a pavé diamond dial, sapphire indexes, and baguette diamond bezel. Only a mere eight examples of this AAA Rolex fake watches are known to exist in the market. Unsurprisingly, this wild Daytona marked the top sale of the impressive auction, coming in at over $4.1 million and shattering the previous world record for any Rolex Ref. 6270 ever sold.
