I know we have readers who would not entertain the thought of buying a quartz fake watch. You are missing out! Shed all your associations with cheap Main Street jewelry and fashion brands. When done right, quartz technology is a thing of beauty. And perfect super clone Rolex did it right — and then abandoned it.
Still, this cheap replica Rolex ref. 17000 Oysterquartz Datejust is a favorite of mine. I particularly love the silver dial paired with the integrated Oyster bracelet. It has an architectural forcefulness that is unique to the luxury super clone Oysterquartz Datejust. Although, yes, there is a mechanical version of this — the very rare Oyster Perpetual Date ref. 1530.
I have picked one on the upper end of the price scale since many have been worn to bits. This, too, was refinished, but most of the more affordable ones are badly over-polished. Don’t expect these to be bargains compared to mechanical 1:1 super clone Rolex Datejusts anymore. Those days are over. This one is offered on Chrono24 by a French dealer at €7,300.
