Okay, fine. It’s not the most exciting choice. But, like, the Swiss movement fake Rolex Datejust is the most popular watch of all time. From a vintage two-tone “ladies” DJ to the larger modern version President Joe Biden recently picked up.
Remember Paul Newman? As mentioned, his Rolex Daytonas might get all the attention — what with being auctioned off for millions of dollars and all — but he wore a simple vintage Datejust in The Color of Money.
How are you gonna argue with this guy in Persols and a Rolex DJ?
But I get it. Newman’s more salsa than sexy to many nowadays. However, the luxury copy Rolex Datejust has suffered no such fate; you’ll find it nowhere near the middle shelves of a fluorescently-lit grocery store piping adult contemporary through the PA system. Today, you’ll still find the DJ in all forms neatly tucked into glossy spreads in Vogue, GQ, and lookbooks from Aimé Leon Dore.
It’s subtle, but also not. Trendy, but not really a trend. Out of fashion, but always in style. For what it’s worth, a vintage steel DJ like Newman’s is my pick from the seemingly endless array of vintage and modern options (“reference 1600” or “1601”, for those looking for some keywords to start their online shopping).
Once you clasp that supple jubilee bracelet on your wrist, trust me, you won’t be taking it off anytime soon. You’ll be telling anyone who listens how it’s not just a watch, but an item that means something to you.
That’s why the best quality replica Rolex Datejust is an iconic pick: it’s one you can pick up for yourself. It might be to celebrate graduation; that new gig; getting jabbed with the covid-19 vax; or, just reading a mediocre newsletter.
Because at the end of the day, the most iconic copy watch is the one that means something to you, not anyone else.
