omeone once said, "A classic wristwatch that’s worn on your dominant wrist never goes out of style". When it comes to classic wristwatches, one name is ever so dominant: the Rolex. Since its debut over a century ago as the world's first water-resistant timepiece in 1919, courtesy of the Rolex Oyster series, the brand has grown to the summit of global wristwatch quality.
However, just like other exquisite items, you will not find every Tom, Dick, and Harry rocking an original Rolex; not just because some are limited-issue, but also due to the fact that they cost an arm and a leg. The cheapest Rolex ever made back in the 1990s cost $5,000. Today, $200,000 won't even scratch the surface for some editions.
Purchasing a Rolex may require you to go deep into your pockets, but thanks to replicas, you do not need to do so. For more than 98% off the original price, you can acquire a Rolex look-alike and rock it like it's the real deal. However, the market is full of terrible Rolex replicas and you don't want to get ripped off or buy something unforgivingly fake.
Do not fear, Malone Post has a simple solution for that. Drum roll please...…the Imitation Rolex Yacht-Master!
The Imitation Rolex Yacht-Master
Replicas don't get any better than the Imitation Rolex Yacht-Master. As the name suggests, it is an imitation of the classic Rolex Yacht-Master Oysterflex. For only $30, you can cop this great work of art and not be ousted, which is a great deal when compared to the $25,000 original Rolex Yacht-Master price tag.
This replica matches the original Yacht-Master in so many ways that it would take a third look with a really good eye to find any differences. This is why it is the perfect choice for you.
The Imitation Rolex Yacht-Master features a shiny rose gold frame with a quality rubber band design, a bezel, and a deployment clasp which makes it easy to put on. The rubber band isn't as soft as it should be, but it'll get softer over time.
Probably the most commendable features of this replica are the vents at the back that come in handy when you get sweaty, just like the original version. It also features a quartz movement and a magnified date counter just like on the original watch.
Replicas often don't provide the same comfort levels as the original, but not this one. It is a comfy replica even when your wrists expand. In case it doesn't fit, all it takes is to re-size this watch to cut the rubber slits, push out the spring pin and push it back in, and it has three micro-adjustments to make it fit your wrists perfectly.
It’s good quality, but some features of the Imitation Rolex Yacht-Master do give it out as a cheap replica. Firstly, the color mismatch between the clasp and the watch is evident. In the original version, both parts are Everose gold, but the replica has its clasp in silver. Plus, the watch isn't coated in authentic Everose gold to begin with, so it may fade to reveal its stainless steel core over time.
Bezel rotation in the replica is rough and it may chip or break easily, since it is made of plastic, unlike the matt black Cerachrom insert in ceramic on the authentic version.
Yes, the replica has its flaws, but for its price tag, there’s only so much you should expect. Despite these flaws, the Imitation Rolex Yacht-Master still stands as your best choice of rocking a quality Rolex look-alike without hurting your pockets.
