Sir Elton John has rarely been out of the headlines for the last 50 years, but he’s back in them again in 2024. Having just won his first Emmy award for the Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium special on Disney+, he’s become the 19th EGOT winner — someone who’s won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award. This honour comes at the same time as he’s clearing out his Peachtree Road home in Atlanta, Georgia, and the upcoming Christie’s auction is full of some truly intense super clone watches for sale. Let’s sift through onslaught of sapphires and pull out five of the most interesting timepieces.
Fake Rolex ‘Leopard’ Daytona
Most watch enthusiasts have conservative tastes, but I couldn’t just ignore all of the incredibly audacious watches in this collection. Elton John’s style has gone through many evolutions, but his era of excess which began in the ‘70s is by far his most iconic look. There are heaps of best quality copy watches in this auction studded with diamonds and other precious jewels, but the leopard-print dial and strap on this 18k gold 1:1 super clone Rolex Daytona is possibly the gaudiest and most flamboyant of all.
Replica Cartier Crash
For a watch which is designed to look ruined, the aaa quality replica Cartier Crash only gets more and more legendary with each passing year. Its eccentricity and evocation of Salvador Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory has made it a must-have for collectors with an artistic mind, each reference having its own quirks.
This particular Swiss movement super clone Cartier is from a limited run of 400 pieces in 1991, with white contrast stitching on the strap making for a surprisingly sporty look. With the hype surrounding the high end fake Cartier Crash in the current market and the added star power from Sir Elton, it’s no surprise that this watch has the highest estimate of the bunch.
Copy Cartier Tank Divan
Everyone loves the Swiss movement replica Cartier Tank, so why not have two? The Cartier Tank Divan name is usually given to references which are elongated outwards, turning the vertical rectangle into an exceptionally wide horizontal one. This top quality fake Cartier, with its 18k white gold case tastefully coated in diamonds, actually features a dual-time display which can both be set from the same crown. What it lacks in subtlety it makes up for in wow-factor, and it’s quartz-powered so you could easily reach for it without worrying about setting the twin dials each time.
